The official website of Meitantei Conan Kara Kurenai no Love Letter (Detective Conan: Crimson Love Letter), the 21st Detective Conan anime film, revealed the film's visual, illustrated by original manga creator Gosho Aoyama, on Wednesday.
The film will open in Japanese theaters on April 15, 2017. A teaser for the film will appear at the end of the Meitantei Conan Episode "One" Chiisakunatta Meitantei special on December 9.
The film will be a love story set in Osaka, and it will feature Heiji Hattori and Kazuha Toyama. The visual shows Momiji Ōoka, a high school karuta champion who refers to Heiji as her future husband and is a romantic rival for Kazuha. She appears in the manga for the first time in the 91st compiled volume, which will ship on December 16 in Japan, and this will be her first anime appearance.
Kobun Shizuno, the director of the last six Detective Conan films, will return to direct the film at TMS and V1 Studio. Takeharu Sakurai is also returning from earlier films to write the script based on Aoyama's story, and franchise composer Katsuo Ono is again providing the music.
The following cast members from the television anime are confirmed for the film: Minami Takayama as Conan Edogawa, Wakana Yamazaki as Ran Mōri, Rikiya Koyama as Kogorō Mōri, Ryo Horikawa as Heiji Hattori, and Yuko Miyamura as Kazuha Toyama.
The 20th film, Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare, opened in Japan on April 16, and set a record high for the film franchise at the box office. The Meitantei Conan Episode "One" Chiisakunatta Meitantei (Detective Conan Episode "One": The Great Detective Who Shrank) special, which will recreate the first episode, will air on December 9.
