Emi Nitta to appear as new idol character in January anime

The official website for the new Detective Opera Milky Holmes (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes) series, Tantei Kageki Milky Holmes TD, began streaming a 130-second advance promotional video on Wednesday. The four main Milky Holmes characters (Suzuko Mimori, Sora Toku, Mikoi Sasaki, Izumi Kitta) perform the theme song "Milky A Go Go," and Emi Nitta perform the ending theme song "Tankyū Dreaming" (Quest Dreaming).

In the story, the Great Era of Detectives — when detectives and thieves with a power known as "Toys" compete — has given way to the Great Era of Idols. However, someone starts stealing the idols' songs in Yokohama. When super idol Marine Amagi's hit song "Kiseki no Uta" (Miracle's Song) is stolen, she enlists the detectives of Milky Holmes.

Emi Nitta (Love Live!'s Honoka) will join the cast as super idol Marine Amagi. Returning cast members include:

  • Suzuko Mimori as Sherlock Shellingford
  • Sora Tokui as Nero Yuzurisaki
  • Mikoi Sasaki as Hercule Barton
  • Izumi Kitta as Cordelia Glauca
  • Yoshino Nanjou as Kokoro Akechi
  • Aimi as Kazumi Tokiwa
  • Ayasa Itō as Alice Myojingawa

The staff includes:

  • Executive Producer/Original Plan: Takaaki Kidani
  • Original Creator: Bushiroad, Chronogear Creative
  • Director: Hiroshi Nishikiori
  • Assistant Director: Hirokazu Hanai
  • Script: Tenga Komuro, Go Zappa, Shogo Yasukawa, Takayo Ikami, Hideki Shirane, Hyōichi Yokomizu
  • Original Character Design: Natsuki Tanihara, Yume Usahara
  • Character Design: Mariko Fujita
  • Music Producer: Daisuke Kikuta (Elements Garden), Noriyasu Agematsu (Elements Garden)
  • Music: Elements Garden (Daisuke Kikuta, Evan Call, Haruki Mori, Tomohiro Kita)
  • Sound Manager: Takatoshi Hamano
  • Animation Production: J.C. Staff/Nomad

The franchise already inspired three television anime series, including last year's Futari wa Milky Holmes anime. The first Detective Opera Milky Holmes anime will air again starting this October.

The series is slated to premiere on January 3, but the first two episodes will get an advance airing during the Ō-Misoka Da yo! Milky Holmes 2014 program on Tokyo MX TV on December 31.
