Comes a new, innovative mystery series, Pretty Boy Detectives Club!
Mayumi Dojima, a second-year student at the exclusive Yubiwa Academy middle school, has lost something – a star she glimpsed just once, ten long years ago. But help is on the way, in the form of the unofficial, secretive, and thoroughly mysterious Pretty Boy Detective Club! Rumored to solve problems within the school (most of which they themselves may well have created) for reasons aesthetic rather than financial, these five gorgeous boys sweep Mayumi into their world of excitement, danger, and overwhelming beauty. So begins the thrilling new mystery series from renowned author NISIOISIN!
Details about the voice cast for Pretty Boy Detective Club have yet to be announced and are forthcoming on the official site of the series.
Pretty Boy Detective Club is expected to air sometime in 2021 and at the time of publishing there have been no announcements about an official English release of the anime.
