Hello everyone. I love mystery works, but I've hardly ever been able to guess who the culprit is. I'm Boss from Otaku Republic.
Hello everyone! I love mystery works but I never guess the culprit right, so I don't even try to predict while watching. I'm Saori from Otaku Republic!
The reason we're both talking about mystery works is because there's a highly anticipated show starting this October in the Fall Anime season! So, let's get into it! This is the work we're talking about!
【Fall Anime】A trending mystery manga serialized in Shonen Jump+! Witness the brilliant deductions of a genius detective with a fatal flaw! Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective!
I feel like I've seen this manga's art style before......
The manga artist behind it is pretty famous!
What is Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective?
Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective is a current mystery and detective manga serialized in Shonen Jump+. It's the latest work by Amano Akira-Sensei, who used to serialize Katekyo Hitman REBORN!, and it's attracting a lot of attention.
Ah! It's a work by the author of REBORN!
●Katekyo Hitman REBORN!
Exactly! It's a manga known for its incredibly cool artwork. The protagonist is a legendary detective who has been expelled from the detective world!
This is what Ron Kamonohashi: Deranged Detective is about!
The protagonist, Ron Kamonohashi, was a brilliant detective...... “was” being the operative word.
Ron Kamonohashi, the protagonist, was a student at the world's top detective training school, 'BLUE,' and had been called a 'genius' ever since the school was established...... 'had been' being the key phrase.
I can't help but notice that everything is in the past tense.
Ron possesses extraordinary deductive reasoning skills, but it was discovered that he has a 'fatal flaw' as a detective. As a result, he was expelled from the academy. In this world, you can't get involved in cases as a detective without an identification card.
Sounds like the story ended in just one episode.
However, one day, Ron witnesses Totomaru, a not-so-competent detective, encountering a difficult case. Ron gets involved in the case as an advisor to Totomaru, rather than actively participating as a detective.
Ron seems full of mysteries, which is intriguing. What was the 'fatal flaw' as a detective that led to his expulsion?

That's already revealed in the manga, so I think it will also be portrayed in the anime (although it's not clear if it will get that far in the adaptation). So if you're curious about Ron's secret and the cases the two will tackle, be sure to check out the anime starting in October 2023!
