Manga-based comedy from Tokyo Zombie director, star to open on April 3

The official website for the live-action film adaptation of Aozora-Daichi's Insect Detective Yoshida Yoshimi (Konchū Tantei Yoshida Yoshimi) gag manga is streaming a 90-second trailer. Tokyo Zombie director and Ichi the Killer scriptwriter Sakichi Sato is directing, and he is reuniting with his Tokyo Zombie star Shō Aikawa for this film. It opens in Japan on April 3.

In this "nonsensical gag" comedy, Yoshimi Yoshida is known as the "Insect Detective" since he can communicate with just about any creature. Together with Mugi (a dog with the intelligence of a third-grader) and Piitan (a foul-mouthed parrot), Yoshida takes on cases related to insects and other creatures.
