The 4th in a series that “imagines almost faithfully to the original” the works of “Father of Japanese Mysteries” Edogawa Rampo.

Reversal after reversal, it is a breathless comparison of wits between the famous detective and the mysterious thief.

 

“Boys Detectives Club.”. The boys and the famous detective Akechi Kogoro challenge the rumors of the “black monster” spreading in Tokyo and the mysteries of the “cursed jewels”. Tokyo is full of rumors of the elusive “black monster”. One day, a monster uses a daring trick to steal the Shinozaki family’s “cursed jewel” and kidnap the daughter of the Shinozaki family. Can the great detective Akechi Kogoro unravel the mystery of the “cursed jewel” and the identity of the “black monster”? The Detective Boys series, which made the boys of the Showa era go wild, is revived with a unique cast and visual beauty!

 

“Yokai Professor.” A boy detective sneaked into a Western-style building in pursuit of a mysterious old man, the “Yokai Professor” who appeared seems to have some inexplicable power, and there is a terrifying mechanism in the mansion!
