“The collaboration will include co-production of local language content ranging from drama series, animation to variety shows on Disney Plus for both Japanese and global audiences and the availability of both companies’ content on their respective platforms,”

The First Nippon TV Show on Disney+

It seems like The Files of Young Kindaichi, a high school show about solving mysteries and building relations with your classmates which will be getting a live-action treatment will be the first show in the deal between Disney and Nippon TV as it comes to Disney+ in the coming months.

A story about of Kindaichi, a young boy joining a prestigious school and then being invited to a club in the school which investigates the mysterious nature of the school.

With an amazing protagonist and some of the most intuitive side characters in anime, packed with an honest to God mystery keeping you up on your toes about what’s going to happen next in the crazy and often full of surprises, the best choice for the first show to appear on Disney+.

With three seasons and a massive fanbase to boast, The Files of Young Kindaichi seems like a safe and sound choice for Disney to take under its umbrella in the beginning steps of this partnership.
