Oshiri Tantei (おしりたんてい) was one of my favorite things I found when I was in Japan! Translating to ‘The Butt Detective”, I found this gem in the children’s books at a bookstore in Sapporo. Naturally I fell in love with it so I had to bring the first book home XD
Oshiri Tantei is exactly what you would expect it to be; a talking butt who solves crimes. He also uses several different methods of subduing criminals though of course the most entertaining to me is the fart. The show is a series of 3 minute long web animations produced by Toei Animation and Poplar Publishing; featured voice actors include Yūko Sanpei, Ayaka Saitō, Takahiro Sakurai, and Ikkei Watanabe.
I can’t even begin to describe how absolutely excited I am for this animation! The DVD was released on August 22, 2018 as a companion to the popular children’s series written and illustrated by Troll. Take a look at the trailer for this anime down below and let us know what you think in the comments below!
