  • Sherlock Holmes: Katsuyuki Konishi
  • John H. Watson: Yūichi Nakamura

The project, as the name implies, will be set in a fictionalized version of Shinjuku’s Kabuki-chō district. Production I.G. describes the series as:

Shinjuku ward, east side… In the heart of this chaotic city, the neon lights that blanket Kabuki-chō are expanding. As the lights shine brighter, the shadows grow darker. The curtain rises on this night stage, where bizarre murders take place! Suspense? No comedy? An indistinguishable drama is about to begin.
