In a Japanese house in Arashiyama, Kyoto's outskirts, the reigning Satsuki Cup champion is murdered. Several karuta cards were spread around the victim.

Location: Yajima Residence
Victim: Toshiya Yajima
Cause of death: Blunt trauma to the head
Suspects: Koji Sekine, Kensuke Achiwa, Togo Kaieda and Shikao Nagoro
While Yajima is watching the match of Momiji Ooka, a mysterious man went to his room and killed him with a katana.

A bombing case at Nichiuri TV in autumn. The Satsuki Cup, which crowns the winner of Japan's Hyakunin Isshu, is currently being filmed inside the facility. The incident results in a big commotion and, while the building is burning to ashes, the only people left inside are Heiji and Kazuha. They get rescued just in time by Conan, who rushes to the scene. Both the identity and purposes of the bomber are unknown.

Location: Nichiuri TV Station
Victim: Heiji Hattori, Kazuha Toyama and Mikiko Hiramoto
Age: 17 Years old (Mikiko Hiramoto)
Injury: Explosion
Suspects: Koji Sekine, Kensuke Achiwa, Togo Kaieda and Shikao Nagoro
Bombs planted in the building exploded, making it engulfed in flames. A bombing threat was sent, of which content is about karuta.

While confusion takes over due to the explosion, Conan meets a mysterious beautiful girl who claims she is "Heiji's fiancée". Her name is Momiji Ooka and she is the high school champion of the karuta game from Kyoto Senshin High School. As fate would have it, Kazuha is going to face Momiji in the Hyakunin Isshu, so she begins to train with the help of Heiji's mother, Shizuka, who is a skilled karuta player.

Later, Ran finds out that Heiji once made a yubikiri/pinkie promise to 'take Momiji as his bride'.

Conan and Heiji, along with the Osaka and Kyoto police departments, begin their investigation on the Satsuki Cup and the related murder case. As the inquiry goes on, they come across a secret connected with the Hyakunin Isshu. They found that the cards that were left at the crime scene and sent by email to victims were all Shikao Nagoro's favorite cards, all of which had 'Momiji' in their poems.

[edit] Trivia

  • Takahiro Ōkura, a detective novelist famed for his Assistant Inspector Fukuie series (featured in Volume 85), wrote the script for the movie. It was his second Conan work. The first is the script for The Mysterious Boy, which is different from the movie, being really showy and flashy.[5]
  • The poem recited at the beginning of the official trailer is the 77th poem from the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, a classical Japanese poem anthology that is prominently featured in the movie.
  • The black figure who detonates the bombs with a remote control is seen wearing a ring, which directly indicates the culprit.
  • The movie has a running time of 112 minutes.
