The official website for the Detective Conan films began streaming a 90-second trailer for Detective Conan: The Eleventh Striker on Wednesday. The 16th Detective Conan film has the pint-sized detective being stalked by a criminal unless he can decipher the criminals' coded messages.
The website also announced that the band Ikimono-gakari will perform the theme song "Haru Uta" for the film. The film's new trailer features the song. The group has performed theme songs for television anime including Bleach, Naruto Shippūden, Ghost Slayers Ayashi, and Big Windup!.
Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: Quarter of Silence, Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Toki-den) is directing under the supervision of the franchise's chief director Yasuichiro Yamamoto. As they have for most of the Detective Conan films so far, Kazunari Kouchi (Aoyama Gōshō Tanpen-shū) is writing the script, and Katsuo Ono (DNA Sights 999.9, Fake) is composing the music.
The story begins when the Mōri Detective Agency suddenly receives a threatening phone call. Then, a car explodes right before Kogorō Mōri's eyes. If Detective Conan, Kogorō Mōri, Ran Mōri, and the others cannot decipher the coded message that the culprit lays down as a challenge: "Aoi shōnen to aoi shimauma, ue kara no ame" (A blue boy and a blue zebra, rain from above…), they won't be able to stop the next bomb. The threats continue until Conan and the others are at a soccer match between the rivals Ganba Osaka and Tokyo Spirits, and the culprit threatens the entire stadium.
The film will open in Japan on April 14.
