    Thanks for picking up this series.
    About the character you've named "Mike Roft", whom everyone seems to call by name and surname at once, I think, since he's the most brilliant man on the UK and member and cofounder of the Diogenes Club, he would be this man, so it'd be "Mycroft" instead of "Mike Roft" (the jap spelling is MAIKUROFUTTO for the first and MAIKU·ROFUTTO for the second).

    This is the 2nd time I am addressing this issue. First, I read the entire Sherlock Holmes series and know full well who Mycroft Holmes is. The manga character's official name in Japanese is マイク=ロフト which is read Mike Roft or Mycroft but there is a break between Mike and Roft as indicated by the =. That is the symbol the mangaka used to separate 2 consecutive English words or given name-surname. And his character description is "elder brother of a certain famous detective". Reference to Mycroft Holmes: Yes. Is he Mycroft Holmes: No.

    I forgot to add the word "perhaps" to my former post, between "Diogenes Club," and "he would be"; sorry about that. I was asking precisely if there was any kind of separator (it's amazing the popular the equal sign has become as a substitutive of the middle dot as a separator of Western names in fiction), that's why I indicated both spellings.
    Thanks for clearing away my doubt.

    Hi, thanks for keeping the project alive. I have a question: is there any reason to split Chapter 27?

    What do you mean by split? That is all of Ch 27, and next chapter will be 28.
