NHK has developed an animation series built around Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, the two world-famous detectives created by mystery novelist Agatha Christie (1890-1976). The creation of the new series is part of the launch of a special department the network has created to develop original animation to add to its core lineup. Agasa Kurisuti no Meitantei Powaro to Mapuru will start July 4, running every Sunday at 7:30 p.m. for 39 episodes.
NHK is Japan’s national public broadcaster. Read the rest of the DAILY YOMIURI article here.
