The January issue of Shogakukan's Shōnen Sunday S magazine revealed on Monday that Yutaka Abe and Jirō Maruden's manga adaptation of Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer (Meitantei Conan: Zero no Shikkōnin), the 22nd Detective Conan anime film, will reach its climax in the magazine's next issue on December 25.
Abe and Maruden launched the manga in Shōnen Sunday S in its July issue on May 25. Abe and Maruden have previously drawn manga adaptations of other films in the franchise, including the 21st film Detective Conan: The Crimson Love Letter.
Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer opened in Japan in April 2018. The film was the second-highest grossing domestic film in Japan in 2018, earning 9.18 billion yen (about US$83.1 million) by the end of the year.
The film is 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, appears for the first time in a film for the franchise.
