He calls it the Woodpecker Detective’s Office.
“The ghosts of the Twelve-Story Tower in Asakusa,” “the man-eating figure who wanders the streets on snowy nights”…
Takuboku involves himself in one bizarre case after another with his hometown acquaintance, Kindaichi Kyosuke, as his assistant.
Other literary men such as Nomura Kodo, Yoshii Isamu, Hagiwara Sakutaro, and Wakayama Bokusui are also dragged into Takuboku’s exploits as he races all around Tokyo at the height of Westernization!
Based on a series of detective stories by the talented Kei Li, taking real-life Japanese literary masters and having them play part in grand mysteries of their era!? Yes, please!
Woodpecker Detective’s Office will be on Crunchyroll in Spring 2020!
