What is the puzzle-solving adventure anime ‘Kaito x Ansa‘?
It is a new anime series related to the Fall 2016 puzzle anime Nazotokine. As the city of Tachikawa faces danger, two men who love their city, Kaito Aen and Ansa Arishin, challenge puzzles given to them by an assassin. Sometimes they work together and sometimes they face against each other in this action-adventure.
The staff of Nazotokine has returned, including director and screenwriter Naoya Fukushi. The animation will be once again be produced by Tengu Kobo. The professional wrestler Genichiro Tenyu will also be voicing a character in the anime, although details about his character have not yet been revealed.
At broadcaster TOKYO MX’s booth at AnimeJapan 2017, Tenryu was appointed as ‘Tachikawa Tourist Association’s Recommended Puzzle-Solving Special Challenger’. We wonder what kind of character he will be playing with his mysterious voice. We are looking forward to it!
