Undead Murder Farce Anime

In 2015, Aosaki introduced a captivating novel series. The manga adaptation was licensed by Kodansha USA Publishing, providing a compelling narrative:

Set in the late 19th century, a vampire’s wife is brutally murdered, prompting the intervention of the enigmatic detective known as the “cage user.” However, both the detective and the mysterious birdcage he carries harbor secrets that run deep.

When confronted with a monstrous case, it takes one to know one, and the truth behind the detective’s identity might just hold the key to solving the case. Haruka Tomoyama began the manga adaptation in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in June 2016. The manga subsequently transitioned to Nemesis magazine in June 2017, before finally finding its home on the Comic Days website in September 2018.
