TV schedule revealed for upcoming original series that re-imagines Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's characters in modern Tokyo
The game is afoot, and the Japanese broadcast schedule has been revealed for Kabukicho Sherlock, an upcoming original TV anime that re-imagines the characters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective novels as amateur sleuths inhabiting the margins of modern life in Tokyo's seedy 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".
Kabukicho Sherlock is directed by Ai Yoshimura and features animation production by Production I.G. The series will broadcast in Japan as part of the "Animeism" programming block according to the following TV schedule:
- TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System): every Friday during the 25:55 time slot beginning on October 11, 2019.
- MBS (Mainichi Broadcasting System): every Friday during the 25:55 time slot beginning on October 11, 2019.
- BS-TBS: every Saturday during the 25:00 time slot beginning on October 12, 2019.
Please note that some Japanese TV schedules count early-morning programming as late-night programming of the previous day, so for example the 25:55 time slot on Friday evening is actually on Saturday morning at 1:55am JST.
