Case File nº221: Kabukicho

Animated TV series



An all-new animation that modernizes the characters and stories of Sir Arthur Conan DOYLE’s Sherlock Holmes series and places them in a fictional Kabukicho, Shinjuku. The work is an ambitious, comedic mystery in which Sherlock (now a rakugo enthusiast) races for his reward against a cast full of miscreants, including his own clients. A humanist drama and an homage to the original work.
