Funimation Entertainment Acquires Four Detective Conan Movies from TMS Entertainment

Flower Mound, TX (July 17, 2009) – FUNimation® Entertainment today announced that it has acquired Broadcast, and DVD distribution rights to the mystery suspense anime movies “The Last Wizard of the Century” “Captured in Her Eyes” “Countdown to Heaven” and “The Phantom of Baker Street” from TMS Entertainment.

The movies are directed by Kenji Kodama (who also directed previous Case Closed movies “The Time Bombed Skyscraper” and “The Fourteenth Target”) and produced by TMS Entertainment, Ltd. (“Lupin III”, “Virtua Fighter”, “Project ARMS”, “D.Gray-man”).

The Last Wizard of the Century
When The Phantom Thief announces his intentions to steal a famous Russian Fabergé Egg, Conan is in hot pursuit of the criminal on Interpol's most wanted list. But there's far more to the case then a mere robbery, as history's ghosts seem to haunt the present. Just who is the Last Wizard of the Century?

Captured in Her Eyes
There's a killer on the loose, and the targets are none other than the boys in blue. No cop will be safe until Conan cracks the case. There's just one problem – only Rachel has seen the fiend in action, and she has amnesia from the trauma of witnessing a murder first-hand causing her to forget everything she ever knew and everyone she ever loved.

Countdown to Heaven
As the grand opening of a pair of towers nears, death and mayhem mars the fresh start to the architectural marvels. Conan, suspecting that the mysterious Black Organization that poisoned and left him for dead of being involved, goes to investigate. But soon finds himself in harm's way, trapped, as the buildings are set to blow.

The Phantom of Baker Street
At the launch party for a new virtual game that includes a world heavily modeled off of the stories about Sherlock Holmes, Conan and the Junior Detective League find themselves among the lucky few to try out the new game. But when a hacker takes control of the game and changes the stakes, solving the mystery and catching the killer becomes a matter of life and death.

FUNimation Entertainment will release each movie individually beginning winter 2009.
