The official website of the Fall 2016 anime Trickster: Edogawa Ranpo "Shounen Tanteidan" yori announced on Wednesday an additional voice cast member for the series. A new character design by animator Shinya Yamada, based on original designs by mangaka duo PEACH-PIT, was revealed on the website. Designs for the two lead characters were also revealed earlier this month.

It will air over 24 episodes beginning October in a new programming block called Anime no Me, which will be broadcast on the Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, and BS11 networks. A manga adaptation will begin serialization in the seventh issue of Magazine Special of 2016, which will go on sale on June 20.

Ryou Inoue: Yuuichirou Umehara (Young Black Jack)

Sausage fest confirmed, will give this a swerve

The setting does have some very interesting female character, but the club itself, as title suggests is made up of antisocial genius orphaned boys collected by Detective Akechi(basically Japan's equivalent of Sherlock Holmes). A lot of Ranpo's works have bizarre erotic subtext and androgynous characters tho.

Another Ranpo Edogawa type anime. Hopefully this can be the first good one.

As far as setting, atmosphere and characters, that show nailed it tho. The problem was overall writing and planning.

Yeah, I was just thinking, "Wait, weren't the previous anime based off this guy's works just bad/dull? What'll make this any different?" So I'm being skeptical about this because I want to believe Ranpo Edogawa is a good, influential author even though I have no idea where to read his works for myself. I just have no idea whether-or-not his works are that hard to adapt, or if the other shows suck at it.

Could really be a hit or miss. Glad to see Peach-pit involved in this project though.
