Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: School Mystery! The Splendid Tenkasu Academy is the 29th movie in the Crayon Shin-chan series, which includes a still-ongoing TV series that began in 1992 and has over 1000 episodes as of 2021. The previous movie, Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes, was released in 2020. The TV anime and movies are based on the manga by Yoshito Usui.
Muse Asia describes the series as:
Shinnosuke and his friends are experiencing a one-week stay as part of the “defense force” of Tenkatōitsu Kasukabe Private Academy (nicknamed “Tenkasu”), an elite boarding school that is administered by a state-of-the-art AI. But when Kazama is attacked, with his intelligence reduced, and strange bite marks left on his butt, the mood begins to change. The Kasukabe defense force joins forces with the school’s dropout student council president Chishio Atsuki to form a group of detectives and shed some light on the mystery.
