Its story is set in Beika-cho in Tokyo, a fictional town that is the center of the story in the Detective Conan main series, and follows the daily life of the “Shadow Man” (Hanzawa-san the Culprit), a silhouette of an unidentified criminal in Case Closed.
Hanzawa begins on Japanese TV on October 3 at 25:05 (effectively, October 4 at 1:05 AM), with Netflix set to stream the series in Japan on October 4. Netflix will be releasing the series internationally later at an unconfirmed date.
