Detective Conan's New Kaitō Kid Special to Air on Xmas Eve (Updated)

Shogakukan indicates special will follow caper on holy night

The Japanese publisher Shogakukan announced that the Detective Conan anime will air the next Kaitō Kid special on Christmas Eve, December 24. Shogakukan indicates that, now that the mystery behind the death of Kaitō Kid's father Toichi Kuroba — the original Kaitō Kid — has been unraveled, the new special will follow a caper on the holy night.

The original Magic Kaito manga centered on a young budding magician named Kaito Kuroba who follows in his late father's footsteps as the legendary thief Kaitō Kid. The character has since appeared in Detective Conan stories, often as a formidable rival. Kaitō Kid or Magic Kaito specials also aired in Japan in August and September. A new 2-part Magic Kaito manga ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in September as well.
