posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Detective Conan anime films unveiled the main visual for Meitantei Conan Zero no Shikkōnin (Detective Conan: Zero's Executioner), the 22nd film in the series, on Wednesday.
The tagline in the visual reads: "The one who exposes the truth vs. the one who pierces through justice. Their souls will confront each other in this secret mission mystery."
The film opens in Japan on April 13.
Yuzuru Tachikawa (Mob Psycho 100, Death Parade) is directing the film. The film will be a sequel of the series' 20th film, Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare, and centers on Tōru "Zero" Amuro. Police chief Hyōe Kuroda, who is rumored to be Rum in the Black Organization, will also make his first appearance in a film for the franchise.
In the film's story, there is a sudden explosion at Tokyo Summit's giant Edge of Ocean facility. The shadow of Tōru Amuro, who works for the National Police Agency Security Bureau as Zero, appears at the site. In addition, the "triple-face" character is known as Rei Furuya as a detective and Kogorō Mōri's apprentice, and he is also known as Bourbon as a Black Organization member. Kogorō is arrested as a suspect in the case of the explosion. Conan conducts an investigation to prove Kogorō's innocence, but Amuro gets in his way.
The manga series centers on Conan Edogawa, the alias of detective Shinichi Kudo, whose body shrunk after being poisoned at the beginning of the story. Together with detective Kogorō Mōri and his daughter Ran, Conan helps the police solve difficult mysteries.
