Synopsis of Kabukichou Sherlock

The eastern side of the Shinjuku Neighborhood, the neon-lit Kabuki-chō district, stretches along the center of this chaotic city. Where the light shines, there are also deep shadows. However, even deep in this darkness where criminals hide, the light of a detective house shines. The house run by Mrs. Hudson has seven peculiar and shady individuals.
The curtains have been raised on this stage at night when a strange murder by Jack the Ripper occurred. Is this suspense? No, comedy? An indistinguishable drama is about to begin.
