BBC's hit <i>Sherlock</i> getting a manga adaptation

Tumblr is littered with manga-influenced fan comics chronicling the continued -- and frequently sex- and cuddle-filled -- adventures of Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock and Martin Freeman's Watson from the hit BBC television series Sherlock. But Anime News Network reports that Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine is announcing an honest-to-goodness manga adaptation of the crime drama, beginning Oct. 4 with "A Study in Pink." Presumably it's all licensed and approved, but then again, who knows.

Young Ace is a seinen (young men's) magazine that's serialized such manga as The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, Neon Genesis Evangelion and Legal Drug, so we won't be seeing any Holmes/Watson sexcapades; you'll have to rely on Tumblr for that.
