We’re getting another new glimpse into this truly offbeat agency today.
Earlier today, the official Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation (Muhyo to Roji no Mahōritsu Sōdan Jimusho) anime website updated with a new key visual and a teaser trailer. We break the details down below.
The 93-second promo introduces the major characters and plot elements, using the core characters to convey major story beats. Theme song Gifted by SCREEN mode plays as a background track starting at the 41-second mark.
The image features the main cast staring down some unseen horror. Several ghastly ghosties can be seen looming in the background.

Yoshiyuki Nishi’s Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation ran in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump from December 2004 through March 2008. The title spans eighteen collected volumes. Viz Media currently holds the domestic rights to the title, which they describe as:
Are you the victim of unwanted spirit possession? Is there a ghost you need sent up and away… or down to burn for all eternity? If the answer is yes, than you need Muhyo and Roji, experts in magic law. Serving justice to evil spirits is their specialty.
