The first episode is a flashback telling the story of how Himura and Arisu got to know each other during their university days. Episode 2 and 3 are a sequel of the serie picking up the story at the very moment the drama has ended. Edit Translation

More like Episode 11 than "another story"

This is more like an ending for the original series.

The original ten-episode series ends with Himura seeming to have perished with the cult leader, but at the very end, someone turns up at the landlady's house (possibly Himura).

"Another Story" reveals that the person who turns up at the landlady's house is indeed Himura. He has not died, and neither has the cult leader.

However, "Another Story" doesn't continue the story about the cult leader. Instead, it contains a flashback to Himura and Alice's university days. The case Himura solves is one related to the death of a singer. It gives the impression that another case is added in because it isn't enough to show that Himura has not died. "Another Story" isn't any more interesting than the rest of the cases in the original series. Neither does it offer proper closure apart from revealing that Himura has not died--the cult leader is still alive too and it is suggested that she will continue to be an antagonist.

This is OK as an unofficial Episode 11, but don't expect it to bring the series to a new height.

Not sure which one of these actors prompted me to add this to my PTW: Kubota Masataka,
Saito Takumi, Narimiya Hiroki (cameo ep6) or Yamamoto Yusuke but I am grateful it made it there. A detective story that isn't dumbed down and doesn't really focus on One method of solving a case. It never felt "same story different episode" that a lot of detective/mystery shows have.

The "Moriarty" character was both tedious and compelling at the same time...in the beginning episodes her story arc felt tacked, not needed. As the show progressed the scales tipped and her relevance became very apparent.

They did a really good job with this take on Sherlock Holmes and Watson, the bond between Alice and Hideo is unshakable and I look forward to watching the prequel.
