The 47th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine began serializing Yuma Ando's new manga Detective Dog Sherdock on Wednesday. Ando (Psychometrer, Shibatora) is writing the story while manga artist Yuki Sato (Ushiro no Shindere-san, Yokai no Oisha-san) illustrates the detective manga based on Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes character.
Detective Dog Sherdock re-imagines the famous fictional detective as a talking dog named Sherdock. The detective dog must solve riddles that appear as he tries to solve mysterious crimes.
This current issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine features the first two chapters of Ando's manga. In the story, Sherdock begins to investigate a murder case.
Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki directed an anime movie titled Meitantei Holmes: Aoi Ruby no Maki / Kaitei no Zaihō no Maki in 1984 that also portrays Sherlock Holmes as talking dog. Related to that film, the Sherlock Hound mystery television anime series aired in Japan from November 1984 to May 1985. Asahi Shimbun Publications published Toya Ataka's Sherlock Holmes Whispers to the Shadow manga last year. Ando's current Sherlock Holmes adaptation is unrelated to these previous works.
