|List of episodes|
Yoko takes the Detective Boys to a TV studio for a tour. When they run into Onizuka Satan, a vocalist for a visual kei rock band. The Detective Boys decide to search for his room to get his autograph. Meanwhile, a cosmetic-less Satan meets with the director of the TV station, Tenji Urushihara, and murders him.
The Detective Boys find Onizuka Satan's room and meet Satan in full make up who gives them an autograph. Soon after Urushihara is found by an employee and the police arrive at the station. While the police suspect the murderer to be Satan, Satan retorts that with his make up and costume, it would have been impossible to leave his room without being noticed. Since there is no mirror in Satan's dressing room, it would be impossible to put on his make up and absolves him from the murder. Conan still suspects Satan is the murderer.
 Manga to anime changes
- The anime version starts at night with Onizuka Satan being told by Tenji that his performance is canceled.
- The manga version of the story takes place within the Clash of Red and Black storyline (between Hades and Coma) and has a scene with Conan and Haibara debating on the relation between Hidemi Hondou and Eisuke. The anime version (taking place before the storyline) replaces the scene with the Detective Boys introducing themselves to Waka Inoue and Azusa Yamamoto.
