->"They won't fix me just yet...."
->-- ''Dear Boss Letter, UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper (Also the comics tagline)''

A HistoricalFantasy webcomic hosted on ComicFury, written and drawn by Himitsu Notebook. ''[[http://mayonakadensha.thecomicseries.com/comics/ Mayonaka Densha]]'' (Or The Midnight Train) details the life of Hatsune Rondo, an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent and SherlockHolmes fangirl who is somewhat disenchanted with her surroundings in modern Japan, mainly due to her vacant, neglectful mother, and dreams of living in a romantic Victorian city. One evening, Hatsune is mysteriously whisked back in time to VictorianLondon of 1888 after missing the last train home and boarding another train that turned up at midnight.

There Hatsune has a very brief run-in with UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper only to be saved by a kind hearted orphan named [[ThePollyanna Thomas]] [[WideEyedIdealist Bellman]]. When Hatsune asks Tom for help, he introduces her to his boss, who happens to be none other than Sherlock Holmes himself, who offers Hatsune a temporary position in the Baker Street Irregulars until she finds her way home. Hatsune joins Tom and his two best friends, [[HeManWomanHater Jack Terry]] and [[DeliberatelyCuteChild Morris]] [[OlderThanTheyLook Redwood]] in their quest to take down the many criminals that infest London, along the way going up against and [[HeelFaceTurn eventually befriending]] the rich and haughty [[ClassyCatBurglar Jessica Queen]]. At first, Hatsune's dreams seem to have come true, living in a world she's always imagined with a group of close friends plus some good old fashioned justice on the side, but strange things from Hatsune's past begin to surface, particularly as she begins to fall in love with Tom, murders get more and more gruesome, and her brief encounter with the Ripper just doesn't seem to leave her alone.

The series is still ongoing, currently 14 volumes long.
