Every time I scroll through the listings of all those anime streaming sites, my first thought is “there sure has been a lot of anime over the years, but we’re still missing one about a butt who solves crimes.”
Well, that won’t be an issue much longer, because Toei Animation is bringing a series of children’s books called Butt Detective to the screen.
To the internet screen, that is: Butt Detective, directed by Megumi Ishitani, will be produced for YouTube and the Japanese YouTube KIDS app.
It starts Yuko Sanpei (Boruto) as the titular detective and Ayana Saito as a dog named, somewhat unfortunately, Brown.
Actually, the series may be for kids, but it looks pretty darn fun (and for those of you studying Japanese, kids’ series are a great resource). Plus, you know, it’s about a giant butt who solves crimes. That’s something everyone can get behind.
Butt Detective premieres May 31.
