posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for Layton Mystery Tanteisha: Katori no Nazotoki File (Layton Mystery Detective Agency: Kat's Mystery-Solving Files), the television anime inspired by the Professor Layton game franchise, revealed a new visual for the anime on Saturday.
The anime is based on Level 5's Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy game that focuses on Katrielle "Kat" Layton, daughter of Professor Hershel Layton.
Like the game, the anime is set in London and follows Katrielle as she solves mysteries with her talking dog Sherl. The first episode's story centers on Simon Wright, an Englishman with a wife and two daughters, and who has moved in with his family to their recently purchased house. But when Simon's wife and daughters disappear, he turns to the Layton Mystery Detective Agency for help.
Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino (creative producer for Yo-kai Watch, Time Bokan 24) is the creative director, and he is also credited with the original concept and series composition. Susumu Mitsunaka (Haikyu!!, Cuticle Detective Inaba) is directing the series at LIDEN FILMS (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Terraformars). Yoko Takada (key animation for The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance, Inuyasha) is designing the characters based on Takuzō Nagano's original designs.
