posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 44th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Mai Kuraki will sing the theme song "Dynamite" for the two-hour anime special commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Detective Conan manga. Meitantei Conan: Edogawa Conan Shissō Jiken ~Chijō Saiaku no Futsukakan~ (Detective Conan: The Disappearance of Conan Edogawa: The Worst Two Days in History) will premiere in December during YTV and NTV's Friday Road Show! slot.
Kuraki will release a best-of album to mark her 15th year as a professional singer on November 12. 10 of the album's 30 tracks are Detective Conan theme songs, including "Dynamite." Also as part of Detective Conan's 20th anniversary, the traveling art exhibition "Incident in Conan Exhibit" will run at Osaka's Hirakata Park from December 13 to January 12.
Kenji Uchida, the director of the critically acclaimed comedy film Kagi Dorobō no Method (Key of Life) and a Detective Conan fan, wrote the special's story about Conan losing his memories. Yasuichiro Yamamoto, the chief director of the Detective Conan television anime and the director of several previous movies and videos in the franchise, is helming this new special.
