Conan & Tōru Amuro Open an Ikemen Cafe for Latest Sho-Comi Collab
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The next part of Detective Conan's collaboration with Shogakukan's Sho-Comi shōjo magazine is out and this time it's imagining the titular detective and Tōru Amuro from the Detective Conan: Zero's Executioner film. This year's ninth issue of the magazine features Conan on the cover and bundles a clear file with both characters as waiters at "Coffee Poirot" cafe.
The magazine's previous issue included "Ikemen Lines Memo" books featuring Conan Edogawa, Shūichi Akai, Tōru Amuro, Heiji Hattori, and Kaitō Kid. The pads feature "heart-pounding lines" spoken by each of the characters.
The latest issue also continues the two-part manga episode titled "Meitantei Conan: Tameshi Yomi BOOK" (Detective Conan: Custom Reading BOOK) that stars Tōru, in commemoration of Detective Conan: Zero's Executioner, which opens on April 13.
Last year's collaboration with Sho-Comi was also spread across two magazine issues. One issue featured a clear file and a collaboration booklet, and the other issue featured an "anything album" and "snapshot" images of Conan, Shinichi Kudō, and friends.
Other recent Detective Conan collaborations include a real-escape game at Universal Studios Japan, which is returning this year as part of the park's "Universal Cool Japan" event. Manga creator Gosho Aoyama also teamed up last year with Chihayafuru manga creator Yuki Suetsugu to create a collaborative illustration.
In August, Aoyama's original Detective Conan manga became the first series in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine to reach its 1,000th chapter.
