Video: 'Cuticle Detective Inaba' teaser
Cuticle Detective Inaba, a new anime series, is scheduled to air in Japan on January 4, and a short promotional video is available for viewing.
The series, adapted from a manga of the same name, revolves around Hiroshi Inaba, a genetically altered part-human, part-wolf hybrid who works as a private detective. Hiroshi gains information by examining and tasting people's hair (and, as a result, he has a major hair fetish). Hiroshi can also transform into a more wolf-like form and can use special powers and attacks from whatever type or colour of hair he eats.
Hiroshi runs his detective agency with the assistance of his cross-dressing secretary (a boy named Yuta) and a "mostly normal" straight boy named Kei. His adversary is Don Valenino, a mafia boss who is an anthropomorphic goat and who literally eats money.
