The upcoming anime series is set for a January 9, 2020 premiere.

Crunchyroll News describes the series’ story as such:

“[The story of The Case Files of Jeweler Richard] follows Seigi Nakata, an earnest college student, who rescues Richard Ranashinha Dvorpian, a strikingly beautiful British jeweler, one evening when Richard is being harassed by a group of belligerent drunks. Later Seigi asks Richard to identify a ring that he inherited from his deceased grandmother, and in the process Richard reveals not just the ring’s background but also the past, secrets, and feelings of Seigi’s grandmother. Seigi decides to take a part-time job at Richard’s shop, the “Jewelry Etranger” in Ginza, and together the two men solve jewelry-related mysteries.”

Seigi Nakata is voiced by Yuma Uchida (Kyo Soma in Fruits Basket 2019), while Richard Ranashinha Dvorpian will be voiced by Takahiro Sakurai (Kururugi Suzaku in Code Geass).

The anime will be directed by Tarou Iwasaki (One Week Friends, Ryoko’s Case File) for studio Shuka (Durarara!!). Scripts will be written and the story will be supervised by Mariko Kunisawa (Ascendance of a Bookworm). Natsuko Kondou (Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san) is chief animation director. The studio also hired a real-life jewel appraiser, Naozaku Kudo, to supervise the depiction of jewels in the anime. Kudo is the representative director of Japan Jewel Patent Judgment Association.
