The Detective Conan series is big in Japan, and it’s not about a barbarian warrior who also solves mysteries. The show actually features a kid detective, except the sleuth’s young age is due to a chemical reversal.
IMDB charts 53 seasons of the show, and the latest offering is the movie Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween.
The trailer looks interesting; a quality soundtrack, good visuals and some familiar faces. You may, however, be left worrying just how and where that car door so successfully used as a shield came from.
The movie is due out in Japanese cinemas in April.
Crunchyroll has an introduction to the plot.
Shibuya, Tokyo, is bustling with the Halloween season. A wedding is being held at Shibuya Hikarie, where Detective Miwako Sato of the Metropolitan Police Department is dressed in a wedding dress. While Conan and the other invited guests are watching, an assailant suddenly bursts in, and Detective Wataru Takagi, who was trying to protect Sato, is injured. Takagi survived and the situation was settled, but in Sato’s eyes, the image of the grim reaper that she had seen when Detective Matsuda, the man she had been in love with, had been killed in a series of bombings three years ago, overlapped with Takagi’s.
At the same time, the perpetrator of the bombings escapes from prison. Is this really a coincidence? Rei Furuya (Toru Amuro), a member of the public safety police, is hunting down the man who killed his classmate, Detective Matsuda, but a mysterious person in disguise suddenly appears and puts a collar bomb on him.
Conan visits the underground shelter where Amuro is hiding out to disarm the collar bomb, and hears about an incident three years ago when he and his now deceased classmates from the police academy encountered an unidentified virtual bomber named “Plamya” in Shibuya. As Conan and his team investigate, a disturbing shadow begins to loom over them.
