What to Expect in Pluto?

Pluto revolves around the life of Europol Robot Detective Gesicht. He is assigned a case of a string of robot and human deaths, which have one thing in common, their heads are shoved into or positioned as horns. What’s more puzzling is that all the evidence leads to this being done by a robot.

Gesicht is baffled as this would make it the first time a robot has killed a human in 8 years. The killer’s targets seem to be the 7 most advanced robots in the world and humans who are connected to International Robot Laws. 

Apart from this, the rest of the plot from the show remains unknown. One thing is for sure, it is likely to be adapted from the manga.
