The website describes the story:

The East Side of Shinjuku Ward … The neon-lit Kabuki-chō district stretches across the center of this chaotic city. Where light shines, there are also deep shadows. Yet even deep in this darkness where evildoers lurk, the light of a detective tenement shines. The tenement run by Mrs. Hudson has seven peculiar, shady individuals.

The curtains has risen on this stage on the night when a bizarre murder by Jack the Ripper has occurred. Is this suspense? No, comedy? An indistinguishable drama is about to begin….

Ai Yoshimura (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Dance with Devils) is directing, and Taku Kishimoto (Joker Game, 91 Days, ERASED) is in charge of the series scripts. Toshiyuki Yahagi (Joker Game, Persona 5 the Animation -The Day Breakers-) is designing the characters. Takurō Iga (Fuuka, Tsuki ga Kirei) is composing the music.
