Well, this isn’t the sort of collaboration you see every day. Anime franchises cross over from time to time, but a British live-action show and a Japanese anime being featured together in the same event? Well, it might make a little more sense than you think.
The anime series Detective Conan and the BBC’s popular live-action series Sherlock both air on the Japanese station AXN Mystery Channel. To celebrate their upcoming 15th anniversary, the channel is scheduling a quiz event for fans who watch special airings of both series. Those who answer correctly will be entered into a lottery. Prizes include 150000 yen for one lucky winner, a plush of the AXN mascot for ten winners, a Sony tablet for three winners, and an AXN QUO card (a sort of prepaid card that can be used in a variety of places) worth 1000 yen for 100 winners.
If you happen to live in Japan and want to get in on the fun, the quiz event will start August 31st at 5 PM and run through September 8th.
