Milky Holmes Film's Latest TV Ad Features Kokoro

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Film opened this Saturday, February 27

Bushiroad Music began streaming a new television commercial for the Gekijōban Tantei Opera Milky Holmes: Gyakushū no Milky Holmes (Detective Opera Milky Holmes the Movie: Milky Holmes' Counterattack) film on Friday. The video features the character Kokoro Akechi.

Previous ads centered on the characters Nero, Zenigata, Arsène, Sherlock, Twenty, Saku, Elly, Stone River, Hisano, Cordelia, and Rat.

The film opened in 10 theaters in Japan on February 27.

The film's story will feature a three-way battle between The Gentlemen Thief Empire, the Genius 4, and the Milky Holmes groups. Just as the Milky Holmes group is settling down to relax at a hot spring after their study tour, an alarm goes off, because The Gentlemen Thief Empire intend to steal a treasure. The two groups start to battle for who gets to use the "Toys," when suddenly the Genius 4 rush to the scene.

The film's staff and cast are returning from the previous anime series. Takaaki Kidani is credited for the original concept and as the chief production supervisor at Bushiroad and Chronogear Creative, while Makoto Moriwaki is credited as chief director. Hiroaki Sakurai directed the film at J.C. Staff. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu wrote the script, and Seiya Numata adapted Natsuki Tanihara and Yume Usahara's original character designs. Elements Garden composed the music.

The film stars:

Suzuko Mimori as Sherlock Shellingford
Sora Tokui as Nero Yuzurisaki
Mikoi Sasaki as Hercule Barton
Izumi Kitta as Cordelia Glauca
Satomi Akesaka as Arsène/Henriette Mystère
Daisuke Kishio as Twenty/Kai Nijūri
Takuma Terashima as Stone River/Sōseki Ishinagare
Hiro Shimono as Rat/Jiro Nezu
Yoshino Nanjō as Kokoro Akechi
Ryoko Shintani as Hirano Hasegawa
Yukari Tamura as Saku Tooyama
Miyuki Sawashiro as Tsugiko Zenigata

Japanese professional wrestler Tōgi Makabe voices a character in the film named Felder, who can use Toys and is also looking for the "jewel that resurrects the vanquished."
