"This is fun, and it may be some of the best mystery comics geared at the teenage audience." — Leroy Douresseaux, Comic Book Bin.[1] "It seems to be written as a love letter to the classic mystery novel, but the execution is so over the map that it's hard to pin down exactly what Akino's trying to do here." — Greg Hackmann, Mania.[2] "Following the hallmarks of Japanese mystery, the story in Kamen Tantei features convoluted murder schemes and a puzzle-solving aspect that'd be considered old-fashoned in English-language novels." — Kevin Gifford, Newtype USA.[3] "I highly recommend this series as it has a lot of Akino-sensei’s trademark humor." — Lori Henderson, Manga Life.[4]
