posted on by Bayleigh Baker
The official YouTube channel for Layton Mystery Tanteisha Katori no Nazotoki File (Layton Mystery Detective Agency: Kat's Mystery-Solving Files), the television anime inspired by the Professor Layton game franchise, began streaming a second promotional video on Friday. In the video, Katrielle introduces the story and main characters. The video also previews Kana Adachi's opening theme song "Change!".
The anime will premiere on April 8 and air every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. on Fuji TV and other channels.
The anime will be based on Level 5's Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy game that focuses on Katrielle "Kat" Layton, daughter of Professor Hershel Layton.
Like the game, the anime will be set in London and follow Katrielle as she solves mysteries with her talking dog Sherl. The first episode's story centers on Simon Wright, an Englishman with a wife and two daughters, and who has moved in with his family to their recently purchased house. But when his wife and daughters disappear, he turns to the Layton Mystery Detective Agency for help.
Kana Hanazawa (Infini-T Force's Belle Lynn, March comes in like a lion's Hinata Kawamoto) will voice Katrielle (Kasumi Arimura voiced the character in the game). Juurouta Kosugi will voice Sherl (replacing Kōji Yakusho), Kyousuke Ikeda will voice Noah Montoir (replacing Kentarō Sakaguchi), and Youhei Tadano will voice Darjeeling Aspoirot (replacing Hajime Inoue). Singer and actor Tsubasa Imai will voice Simon in a guest role in the show's first episode.
Hanazawa will also perform the ending theme song "Daijōbu."
Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino (creative producer for Yo-kai Watch, Time Bokan 24) is the creative director, and he is also credited with the original concept and series composition. Susumu Mitsunaka (Haikyu!!, Cuticle Detective Inaba) is directing the series at Liden Films (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Terraformars). Yoko Takada (key animation for The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance, Inuyasha) is designing the characters based on Takuzō Nagano's original designs.
