The Undead Murder Farce anime adaptation has received a main trailer and visual. A July 5 Japanese premiere date (effectively July 6 at 1:55 AM JST) was revealed as well.

The over 90-second trailer provides a look at the anime’s cast and also previews the newly revealed theme songs, the opening “Crack-Crack-Crackle” by CLASS:y and the ending “reversal” by Anna. “Crack-Crack-Crackle” will be released on streaming platforms on July 12 while “reversal” will have its streaming release on July 19.

Undead Murder Farce is based on the Undead Girl Murder Farce novel series by Yuugo Aosaki, which began in 2015 and contains three volumes as of April 2021. The books are published under the Kodansha Taiga label. Crunchyroll will host the anime’s world premiere at Anime Expo 2023 on July 3.

Kodansha USA describes the Haruka Tomoyama-drawn manga adaptation as:

The end of the 19th century—a vampire’s wife is murdered, and the detective known as the “cage user” is called in to solve the crime. But there’s more to the detective and the curtained birdcage he carries…after all, when solving a case involving a monster, it might just take one to know one!
