After summarizing the 2021 TV anime, the scene shifts to Hiroshi Odokawa (CV: Hanae Natsuki) getting a passenger from the past whom he doesn't immediately recognize.

Odd Taxi, stylized as ODDTAXI (Japanese: オッドタクシー), is a Japanese manga series written by Kazuya Konomoto and illustrated by Takeichi Abaraya. It is currently being serialized under Shogakukan's Big Comics imprint.

The TV anime was produced by animation studios OLM and P.I.C.S. and aired on TV Tokyo and AT-X in Japan from April 6 to June 29, 2021. The series revolves around taxi driver Hiroshi Odokawa becoming involved in the disappearance of a little girl, thus attracting the attention of the police and even the yakuza.

Eccentric and blunt, the walrus Hiroshi Odokawa lives a relatively normal life. He drives a taxi for a living, and there he meets several unique individuals: the jobless Taichi Kabasawa who is dead-set on going viral, the mysterious nurse Miho Shirakawa, the struggling comedic duo "Homo Sapiens," and Dobu, a well-known delinquent.

But Odokawa's simple way of life is about to be turned upside-down. The case of a missing girl the police have been tracking leads back to him, and now both the yakuza and a duo of corrupt cops are on his tail. Set in a strangely familiar city filled with unusual individuals, Odd Taxi is a bizarre story about a humble taxi driver and the mystery of a lost high schooler. (from MyAnimeList)
