Not only will Minato Aqua, Oozora Subaru, and Momosuzu Nene sing the ending theme song for The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! anime, Shirakami Fubuki and Natsuiro Matsuri from the same agency are also now slated to make an in-anime appearance in The Detective Is Already Dead anime.
The official Twitter account of The Detective Is Already Dead anime announced on Tuesday that Shirakami Fubuki and Natsuiro Matsuri will appear as themselves in episode 3 of the upcoming anime.
