What the blurb doesn't mention is that this is a "meet someone with an uncanny resemblance to someone already dead" scenario. I'm usually a sucker for stories like that, so I will at least check it out.

That's a lot of girls...kind of curious how many of them will end up falling for the MC (aside from the Main Heroine). Will they all be part of their investigation team, or something?

Props for having Matsuoka in a supporting role instead of making him the lead.

Koyasu's character having a codename makes me think he's a villain (even beyond the fact that he's voiced by Koyasu).

The blurb at the top says "Shin Nagai, Saki Miyashita star in romantic comedy from ENGI"
Does that mean that this isn't a mystery series? Or is it mystery with rom-com elements (or the other way around)? Everything I heard about this before made me think it was just mystery.

Tantei wa mou... shindeiru. A lot of HnK fans will be watching this just for that alone. Dat cast! Koyasu!!!!! Yoshitsugu really graduated from being the MC in these roles. The thing is that he'll still get a role as a side character, which I think is intentional. lol

I assumed it was like Detective Conan in that there's the focal romcom antics of the high school characters alongside them stumbling into mysteries/crimes.

This could be a decent series may check it out if it gets a dub.
