One of the members of the detective agency Nagaya*. He has a brilliant mind but is very eccentric. He collects information with all his senses. His sense of taste is better than most people’s. He loves Rakugo so much that when he solves a mystery, he announces it through a ‘Rakugo Deduction’.
He is a medical examiner at the university hospital in the West and a regular guy without distinctive features. One day, disturbing events began to occur in his surroundings so he escapes to the East. He wants to regain his peaceful days and visits the detective agency. He thinks about hiring Sherlock with his problem, but then strange things begin to happen.
A high school student who often hangs out at the detective agency. At first glance he looks like a regular bratty boy, but he has the ability to get to Sherlock through reasoning. He also has a cute side to him, like when he found a four-leaved clover for his younger sister. He is also the leader of a group of kids who formed a Flying Squad for Kabukicho.
A member of the detective agency. Using the detective work as a stepping stone, he tries to get out of the East and into the West. His current case is connected to the serial killer Jack the Ripper. He always wears gloves because he is a clean-freak. He started to like Maki, a regular customer at Pipecat, but he has a hard time getting closer to her.
Lucie’s younger sister. A small devil who plays with people around her and is good at reading the feelings of guys. She also has Lucie in the palm of her hands. While she seems like an easy-going girl, she looks at things surprisingly calm. She is the opposite of Lucie and likes to scheme. Their team work helps them utilize their strengths for detective work.
He is part of the detective agency and works in a team with his younger sister Mary. He looks very cool but is actually straightforward and kind. His hobby is watching Sumo. He dotes on Mary and would put himself into danger for her. He was born in a fisher village in Aomori but came to the city a few years ago and since has worked at the detective agency. He is the type to act first before thinking.
Part of the detective agency who formerly worked as a detective in the East. Back then he was the boss of Inspector Lestrade, but he was caught in a scandal, got fired, and his wife took their children and left. He is rather sly and uses his connections to the police and mafia to solve cases. He is also a gambler and likes anything to do with it, from betting and playing pachinko to going to casinos.
A member of the detective agency. He was born and raised in Kabukicho and is a former yakuza. His face looks scary and intense but he gets full points for cuteness and honesty! His reasoning skills are not that good but his advantage is utilizing the community during his detective work. No matter if the case is big or small, he will take it on and sometimes he can be found working part time at the Pipecat.
One of the most influential people of Kabukicho and the Onee-master (reconstruction not finished yet) of the detective agency. Also the owner and manager of Pipecat. Mrs. Hudson dotes on the children in Kabukicho, because she has such a loving nature. She has a beautiful voice, which she sometimes likes to show off at shows at the Pipecat.
A huge male Ragdoll (reconstruction completed) owned by Mrs. Hudson. His base is the Pipecat but he comes and goes freely as he likes and walks around Kabukicho. He sometimes might end up missing Mrs. Hudson or the bartender but he considers all the detectives from the agency as his servants.
