Animation studio Shuka (Natsume's Book of Friends, Durarara!!, 91 Days) announced on Thursday that it is producing a television anime adaptation of Nanako Tsujimura's Hōsekisho Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei (The case files of Jeweler Richard or literally, The Mystery Appraisals of Mr. Richard the Jeweler) novel series that will premiere in January 2020.
The "heartwarming jewel mystery" series centers on the handsome jewelry appraiser Richard Ranashinha Dvorpian and the bright and cheerful college student Seigi Nakata as they uncover the hidden messages that lies within jewels.
Tsujimura launched the novel series with the first volume in 2015 under the Shueisha Orange Bunko imprint. The series so far has eight volumes, with a ninth slated to ship on August 21. Utako Yukihiro (Devils and Realist, Uta no Prince-sama, B-PROJECT) illustrates the series.
