Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the second television anime season based on Seimaru Amagi and Fumiya Sato's The File of Young Kindaichi Returns (Kindaichi Shōnen no Jikenbo R) manga as it airs in Japan. The stream will premiere on October 3 at 7:00 a.m. EDT.
The stream will be available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, the Netherlands, Turkey, Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.
The story's mystery cases will vary in length from one episode to five-episode arcs. In particular, there will be episodes that feature the elaborate criminal tricks of Yōichi Takatō (voiced by Kenichi Ono), "the puppeteer of Hell" who manipulates other criminals for his schemes.
