The game is afoot (or possibly a-butt) in a thrilling and funny new trailer for Eiga Oshiri Tantei Shiriarty ("Butt Detective the Movie: Shiriarty"), an upcoming feature length anime theatrical film based on the popular series of children's books by Troll that pits the titular Butt Detective against his greatest foe yet: the master criminal, Shiriarty.



In Eiga Oshiri Tantei Shiriarty, a baffling series of crimes turns out to be the work of Shiriarty, a villain who seeks to steal a mysterious treasure known as the "O-PARTS". Oshiri Tantei along with his assistant, Brown, enlist the aid of Audrey, an investigator from the international police organization Wanterpol, in an effort to prevent the "O-PARTS" from falling into the wrong hands while Shiriarty strives to plunge the world into darkness.


In the film, voice actor Masaharu Fukuyama plays the role of Shiriarty, while voice actor Mie Sonozaki plays the role of Audrey.


A key visual for the upcoming Eiga Oshiri Tantei Shiriarty theatrical anime film, featuring Oshiri Tantei, his assistant Brown, and Wanterpol investigator Audrey facing off against the villianous criminal Shiriaty, a well-dressed butt with a pair of silk underwears as a mask.


Eiga Oshiri Tantei Shiriarty is directed by Yuriko Kado and features animation production by Toei Animation. The film will be released in Japan on March 18, 2022 in a double-feature along with the short film Eiga Oshiri Tantei Yume no Jumbo Sweet Potato Matsuri ("Butt Detective the Movie: The Jumbo Sweet Potato Festival of Dreams"), which is directed by Satoru Iriyoshi and features animation production by Toei Animation Gallop.
