Millionaire Detective Anime Resumes July 30 After COVID-19 DelayThe Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED is set to return following a COVID-19-related production delay. That’s the word from Aniplex, which reports Funimation’s simulcast will return July 30.

Only two episodes of the series, based on the novel by Yasutaka Tsutsui (Paprika), had aired before the delay, but Otaku USA readers were enjoying it enough to vote it one of the best series of spring 2020.

It’s directed by Tomohiko Ito, best known for Sword Art Online, and written by Taku Kishimoto (ERASED).

Here’s how Funimation describes The Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED:

Detective Daisuke Kambe has no problems using his own fortune to solve crimes even if he assesses human lives based on their financial worth. Compassionate Haru Kato sees all life as sacred and is sickened by Daisuke’s materialistic ways. Can they stop butting heads and overcome their opposing world views for the sake of solving the toughest crimes in the precinct?
