It is officially announced on the wrap-around band of its latest sixth tankobon volume released today in Japan that a TV anime adaptation of Una Megurogawa‘s comedy manga Oda Shinamon Nubunaga is now in the works. The anime’s teaser site also opens today, but no further information including its staff, voice cast, or broadcast schedule are currently available.

The manga has been serialized in Tokuma Shoten’s Monthly Comic Zenon and its web comic site Zenyon . Its story centers on Oda Nobunaga, one of the most powerful warlords in Japan’s Sengoku period (1467–1600). After his death in the Honnouji incident in 1582, he reincarnates into a dog named Shinamon in the modern-day Japan. As he enjoys his new life as a dog, other famous warlords, such as Masamune Date, Shingen Takeda, Kenshin Uesugi, and Mitsuhide Akechi, also reincarnate into dogs one after another.

Gumshoes Gather in New Key Visual for Kabukicho Sherlock TV Anime

The cast of Sarazanmai poses for a Crunchyroll ad banner.

Amateur detectives make strange allies in a new key visual (below) for Kabukicho Sherlock, an upcoming original TV anime that re-imagines the classic characters from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective novels as modern day sleuths bumming around the seedy side of Tokyo’s red light district.

Set in modern day Kabukicho in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, Kabukicho Sherlock follows the comedic, mysterious, and dramatic adventures of a ragtag band of detectives as they live together in a tenement above Mrs. Hudson’s bar in the red light district and attempt to solve an unusual string of killings known as the “Jack the Ripper Murders”.

James Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes, and John Watson gather in a shady alleyway in the Kabukicho Sherlock TV anime.

Kabukicho Sherlock is directed by Ai Yoshimura and features animation production by Production I.G. The series will broadcast in Japan on Mainichi Broadcasting System, Tokyo Broadcasting System, and BS-TBS as part of the “Animeism” programming block beginning in October of 2019.
