“Kyōto Teramachi Sanjō no Holmes” Light Novels Get Anime TV Series


It’s elementary, my dear Watson, that this will be coming out in short order.

Earlier today, an official website opened its doors to announce that Mai Mochizuki and illustrator Yamōchishizu’s Kyōto Teramachi Sanjō no Holmes (Holmes of Kyoto Teramachi Sanjo) light novels will receive an anime TV series. The show, which will air this summer, will be produced by anime studio Seven.

A visual for the project was also released, which you can check out below.

Mai Mochizuki and illustrator Yamōchishizu’s Kyōto Teramachi Sanjō no Holmes light novels originally launched under Futabasha’s main imprint in April 2015. Eight books have been published to date, with volume 9 due to hit retailers on March 14.

A manga adaptation by Mochizuki launched in Futabasha’s Monthly Action in December 2017. The first volume will hit retailers on March 12.
