The upcoming Fall 2023 mystery anime Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective has received a second trailer, which previews more scenes of its detective duo as well as the opening song “Ikenai fool logic” by UNISON SQUARE GARDEN.
A couple more voice cast members were also announced. Jun Fukuyama is playing detective Omito Kawasemi while Nao Touyama is playing neurosurgeon Mofu Usaki.
Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective will premiere on October 2 with Crunchyroll streaming outside Japan. The anime is based on the Shueisha-published, Shonen Jump Plus-serialized manga by Akira Amano, which began in October 2020 and has 11 tankoubon volumes as of July 2023. The upcoming release is described as the anime’s “1st Season.”
Manga Plus describes the manga as:
This unusual duo brings the hidden truth into the light! Ron Kamonohashi, a private investigator with serious issues, and Totomaru Ishiki, a pure-hearted but dim police detective, team up to solve the most baffling mysteries! A thrilling detective story for a new generation from Akira Amano, creator of “Reborn!” and “?ldlive”!
The anime has the same director-series composer-character designer trio as the adaptation of The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent, namely Shouta Ibata, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU author Wataru Watari, and Masakazu Ishikawa. It also shares the same animation production studio, Diomedea. Composing the music is You Tsuji (The Mystic Archives of Dantalian).
