20th Detective Conan Film's Title, Visual, Story Unveiled
posted on by Karen Ressler
TOHO's official website for the 20th Detective Conan (Case Closed) anime film revealed the film's full title, teaser visual drawn by Gosho Aoyama, and premise on Wednesday. The film's title is Detective Conan: Junkoku no Nightmare (Detective Conan: Pitch Black Nightmare).
The story begins:
On a dark night, the Japanese police is raided by a spy. Different countries' intelligence agencies—such as England's MI6, Germany's BDN, and America's CIA—as well as the FBI's secret files are going to be taken, but public safety officers led by Tooru Amuro arrive just in time. The spy steals a car and escapes. The spy and Amuro are then locked in a dead heat on the highway, and just as it is about to cause an accident with multiple cars, the spy's car is hit by FBI agent Shuichi Akai's rifle bullet and falls off the roadway.
The next day, Conan and his friends go to a newly-remodeled aquarium in Tokyo. Under the main attraction, a Ferris wheel, Conan finds an attractive woman alone and injured. Her left and right eyes are different colors.
But the woman has a case of amnesia so severe she doesn't even remember her own name, and the cellphone she's carrying is broken. Conan and his friends promise to help her regain her memories, so they stay with her.
Throughout all this, Vermouth is watching behind the scenes. Afterward, she pulls out a silencer and speaks into an attached intercom, "It's as planned, Gin."
The movie will open on April 16 in Japan, and it will feature members of the story's Black Organization that have previously appeared in the series: Gin, Vodka, Vermouth, Chianti, Korn, Kir, and Bourbon. The website also hints at the appearance of Rum, who has never been shown in the series.
The 19th Detective Conan film, Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno (Meitantei Conan: Gōka no Himawari), premiered in Japan on April 18.
