posted on by Egan Loo
The website for the Detective Conan films began streaming the newest full trailer for the 18th film, Detective Conan: Ijigen no Sniper (Detective Conan: Sniper From Another Dimension), on Friday. The trailer previews the theme song "Love Searchlight" by Kou Shibasaki.
The film features the appearance of FBI agent Shuichi Akai, and revolves around a sniping incident case. Even though someone was aiming a sniper rifle at Akai, it was Sera who was shot in the chest. The people in Tokyo are afraid of getting involved in this dreadful sniping incident. Will Akai, who should be dead, be targeted again? And why was Sera hit? The film will also include appearances by Subaru Okiya and FBI agent Jodie Starling.
Kobun Shizuno, who directed the last three Detective Conan films, is directing the new film, and Kazunari Kouchi and Katsuo Ono returned from earlier Detective Conan movies and the television series to write the script and handle the music, respectively.
The main cast features Minami Takayama as Conan Edogawa, Wakana Yamazaki as Ran Mōri, and Rikiya Koyama as Kogorō Mōri. Shibasaki previously guest-starred as Nanami Fujii in last year's Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea film. The special guest stars in this year's film include actor Sōta Fukushi as Kevin Yoshino and comedian Patrick Harlan as Jack Waltz.
This year's film will open in Japan on April 19.
