The official website of the The File of Young Kindaichi Returns anime announced on Saturday that a one-hour special television episode of the anime titled "The File of Inspector Akechi" (Akechi Keibu no Jikenbo) will air on December 26. The site streamed a trailer on Sunday, which previews the episode and its story. The video also reveals that Yudai Chiba will play Ryūtaro Kobayashi, a junior detective under detective Kengo Akechi.

Seimaru Amagi and Fumiya Sato's Kindaichi Shōnen no Jikenbo R mystery manga inspired the anime adaptation. The story centers around a high school boy named Hajime Kindaichi who usually seems dull, but when there is a case, he demonstrates remarkable deductive skills inherited from his famous detective grandfather.

The anime's first season premiered in Japan in April 2014, and the currently-airing second season premiered in Japan on October 3. Crunchyroll streamed the first season and is streaming the second season as it airs in Japan.
