Anime News

Yes folks, Japan’s favorite detective is still at it! The official website of the Detective Conan films has recently revealed a teaser trailer for the newest film in the franchise. Entitled Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan (Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet), the film is the 24th movie in the franchise. Check out the trailer here!

According to the trailer, the movie is set for an April 17, 2020 release in Japan. There are no news of international screenings yet—but as with other Detective Conan movies, it’s highly possible that this will be released outside of Japan.

The movie centers on FBI agent Shuichi Akai, his younger brother and professional shogi player Shukichi Haneda, his younger sister and high school detective Masumi Sera, his mother Mary Sera, and lead characer Conan Edogawa himself.

A main visual was also released along with the trailer, which features the mysterious Akai family.

Anime News Network describes the film’s story as such:

“In the story, Japan is celebrating the upcoming World Sports Games (WSG), the world’s largest sporting event, in Tokyo. The “Japanese Bullet,” the world’s first vacuum-tube super-conducting linear train, is built with the latest Japanese technology and timed to coincide with the WSG opening ceremonies. The train is set to run from Shin Nagoya Station to Tokyo Station at up to 1,000 kilometers per hour (about 600 miles per hour). However, a bizarre incident occurs during a party held by famous major sponsors, leading to a string of kidnappings of top executives. Conan deduces a possible link to serial abductions in the WSG 15 years earlier in Boston.”

Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan is directed by Tomoka Nagaoka, who also directed the previous film Fist of the Blue Sapphire. Takeharu Sakai, who wrote the script for the Zero the Enforcer movie, returns to the same role for Hiiro no Dangan.

According to the website, more information on the upcoming movie will be revealed on the December 7 episode of Detective Conan.
