The spring 2020 anime adaptation of the novel Fugo Keiji as Fugō Keiji Balance: Unlimited got underway with an April 9th, 2020 premiere in Japan. With Funimation picking it up for streaming, it was localized as The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED. The second episode hit and the production went on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, setting a July 16th debut set for it where it’ll begin from the first episode again. With that coming up in a couple of weeks, Funimation has released a new two-minute promo featuring a look at the two main characters and interviewing their voice actors talking about the show and what went into it.
The series has Tomohiko Ito directing based on the scripts coming from Taku Kishimoto. Keigo Sasaki is on character designs with CloverWorks handling the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes Yusuki Onuki as Daisuke Kanbe and Mamoru Miyano as Kato. It also includes Kōzō Shioya as Yukihiro Kiyomizu, Akira Kamiya as Chо̄suke Nakamoto, Kentarō Kumagai as Shinnosuke Kamei, Reina Ueda as Mahoro Saeki, Shinya Takahashi as Teppei Yumoto, Rikiya Koyama as Katsuhiro Takei, Junya Enoki as Ryо̄ Hoshino, and Maaya Sakamoto.
Plot Concept: The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED follows detective Daisuke Kambe and partner Haru Kato as they work on cases at the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters–where only people who’ve caused problems for the police end up.
Daisuke is a bit materialistic, using his vast wealth to solve crimes, becoming ever-detached to the human element of it all. Kato, on the other hand, believes money isn’t everything, and is repulsed by Daisuke’s lack of compassion. These two investigators will have to overcome their stark differences if they’re going to solve the mysteries ahead of them!
