Detective Conan better watch out because a new rival's in town. That rival, who will soon be getting his very own online anime series, is a jiggly butt of a detective named Oshiri Tantei, which literally translates to Butt Detective. Joined by his little sidekick Brown, he solves crimes and fights the bad guys like a true case cracking hero. Did we mention his face is one giant butt that talks, drinks, and eats (and farts, but we’ll get to that later)?

While Oshiri Tantei might seem like another odd creation from the world of Japanese animation, it’s actually based on a popular picture book for children of the same name. The anime series will be put together by Troll/POPLAR and Toei Animation, and though it’s mainly targeted for children in elementary and middle school, we can definitely imagine adults getting a kick out of it, too.

According to Oshiri Tantei’s official website, Butt Detective is a butt of refined taste, and is always calm and collected. He loves warm drinks, sweet snacks (especially sweet potatoes), reading, and tea time. His catchphrase is “Hmm... something smells,” and he doesn’t mean his fart — the fart he releases when he needs to incapacitate his adversaries.

The specific details of the Oshiri Tantei animation have not yet been released, but we do know YouTube will be its platform. In the meantime, we can try and make sense of the 3-minute trailer above, which shows memorable scenes from the original picture books.
