The official website for Shuka's Housekishou Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei (The Case Files of Jeweler Richard) revealed additional cast members, theme songs, and broadcast information through a new promotional video on Wednesday. An adaptation of Nanako Tsujimura's mystery light novel of the same name, the anime will premiere on January 9 at 11:30 p.m. on AT-X.

Joining the previously announced main cast are Kana Hanazawa (Bakemonogatari) as Seigi Nakata's classmate, Akiko Tanimoto, and Yuuichi Iguchi (Bokura wa Minna Kawai-sou) as Seigi's friend, Haruyoshi Shimomura.

Singer Nagi Yanagi will perform the series opening theme, "Houseki no Umareru Toki," with Da-iCE performing the ending theme, "Only for you."

Immediately following the broadcast premiere on AT-X, Housekishou Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei will air on Tokyo-MX and BS11. WOWOW will air the anime beginning January 15, and it will stream on dTV and GYAO! in Japan. The first three episodes will pre-screen on December 7 at the Edogawa Cultural Center.

Tarou Iwasaki (Isshuukan Friends) is leading the series as director, with Mariko Kunisawa (Handa-kun) penning the script. Natsuko Kondou (Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san) will serve as the character designer and chief animation director, and Satoshi Motoyama (Little Busters!) is the sound director.

Damn... that blonde guy is hot af. What a stud. As if that wasn't enough, it is voiced by the madlad, Takahiro Sakurai.
Anyways, I feel like Uchida Yuuma is everywhere now, he's instantly recognizable for me at this point

Staff and studio seem really nice, the cast looks great, but this:

I'm already melting. Richard is perfect and beyond beautiful. They did him and Seigi justice (as Seigi's name means). I can't wait for all the bromance and heavy jewel drama to unfold.
