Cumulative total of over 1.3 million copies! Masahiro Imamura’s latest work in the hugely popular series “Akechi Kyosuke no Tosousou” will be published on June 28th.
~This is the story before “Murder at the Corpse Mansion”~
The first short story collection in the series, featuring the most popular character – Kyosuke Akechi – as the main character. We are also planning to hold autograph sessions in 5 cities nationwide! * Ranked #1 in Bookmeter’s list of books to read* (April 13, 2024 – May 13, 2024, Literary Book Category/Monthly)*. *
* The latest work in the hugely popular series, which has sold over 1.3 million copies in total, and the first collection of short stories, “Akechi Kyosuke’s Tosou” *
* Published by Tokyo Sogensha on June 28th (Friday)! *

His debut work “Murder at Shijinso”, which won the 27th Tetsuya Ayukawa Award, was praised as “This mystery is amazing!” ” and other major mystery rankings, and won the 18th Honkaku Mystery Award. Furthermore, it has become a popular work that has taken the entertainment industry by storm, winning 3rd place at the 15th Bookstore Awards, being made into a live-action movie, and being adapted into a comic.
The second installment in the series, “Murder in the Box of Evil Eyes,” and the third installment, “Murder in the Kojintei,” have also received high praise, ranking highly in numerous mystery rankings, and are currently the most popular among mystery fans. This is one of the series that is eagerly awaited.

The long-awaited latest book in the series, “Akechi Kyosuke no Tosousou”, has finally been published.
This is the first collection of short stories in the series, featuring the most popular character – Kyosuke Akechi – as the main character. This is a collection of works depicting five incidents that Kyosuke Akechi, the president of the Shinko University Mystery Club, encountered before “Murder at the Corpse Manor”. This luxurious book allows you to enjoy both the author’s elaborate and bold tricks and human drama.

The main character, Kyosuke Akechi, is a big mystery maniac. He has a tremendous passion for solving mysteries, and even in this work, he pushes forward toward uncovering the truth, even though he has a lot of influence over the people around him, including his junior and assistant Yuzuru Hamura.
Together with Hamura, she uses her natural energy and imagination to tackle various cases such as the theft that occurred in the
university’s cosplay club, the mysteries of daily life whispered in the shopping district, and the exam leak incident that occurred before summer vacation. The “Drunken Underwear Ripping Case,” which exudes Akechi’s character, and the “Letter Scattered Heights Case,” in which he made his debut in the field at the detective agency where he works part-time, are also worth reading. The references to classic mysteries that appear in each story will also make readers smile. At times Akechi’s character is ferocious, at other times clear-headed, and at other times full of humanity, and not only is there something you can’t hate about him, but he’s captivated by readers.

Many readers have been looking forward to Akechi-san’s story, and booksellers who read the book ahead of time have expressed their joy and praise.
I finally met someone I’ve wanted to meet for a long time.
And in the best possible way.
