The official website for the television anime of Mai Mochizuki's Holmes at Kyoto Teramachi Sanjō (Kyōto Teramachi Sanjō no Holmes) mystery novel series began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Thursday. The video reveals the anime's main cast, staff, and July premiere.
The cast includes:
Kaito Ishikawa as Kiyotaka Yagashira
Noriyoshi Sasaki (Ojisan to Marshmallow, My Wife is the Student Council President+!, King's Game The Animation) is directing the anime at Seven. Kenichi Yamashita (Ishida and Asakura, Actually, I Am…) is in charge of the series scripts. Yōsuke Itō (King's Game The Animation) is designing the characters, and also serves as the chief animation director.
The "light, antique mystery" series revolves around a "spiteful," handsome Kyoto boy and a high school girl. The story is set at an antique shop in Kyoto's Teramachi Sanjō shopping district. High school girl Aoi Mashiro unexpectedly runs into Kiyotaka Yagashira, the son of the shop's owner, and ends up working part-time at the shop. Kiyotaka is called the "Holmes at Teramachi Sanjō," and he and Aoi solve odd cases brought to them by various clients.
Mochizuki launched the original novel series with cover illustrations by Yamōchishizu in April 2015, and Futabasha published the ninth volume on March 14. The novel won the 4th Kyoto Book Grand Prix award in 2016. Ichiha Akizuki launched the manga adaptation in Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine in December, and Futabasha shipped the manga's first compiled book volume on March 12.
