Yoko Okino (沖野 ヨーコ Okino Yōko?), which is also the character's name in the Funimation dub, is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.


[edit] Background

[edit] Early life

Yoko attended Konan High School and had a boyfriend named Akiyoshi Fujie. Yoko began pursuing a career as an idol which lead Akiyoshi to break up with her after being persuaded by her's manager, Yamagishi, but it was later revealed that Akiyoshi never stopped loving her.[1][2]

[edit] Idol career

Yoko Okino 1 Profile.jpg

Yoko started her idol career as a member of the quartet "Earth Ladies", along with Kaoru Kusano, Yuki Takeno, and Terumi Hoshino. The team was quite successful, but after some time they disbanded to pursue their own careers. Yoko has remained successful and quite popular in the pop idol and acting business.[3]

In the beginning of her solo career, she became good friends with another idol, Yuko Ikuzawa. However at a later date, Yoko got chosen to play a role that was supposed to go to Yuko, which sparked some animosity.[1][2]

Yoko first met Conan Edogawa, Kogoro Mouri and his daughter Ran Mouri when she asked for Kogoro's help in apprehending a stalker who had even penetrated her apartment (and of course, Kogoro would not hesitate to take the case). But in the apartment they found an unknown man impaled upon a knife, turning this case into a murder investigation. Soon, however, Conan figured out that the 'victim' had actually committed suicide: The man was Akiyoshi Fujie, Yoko's old boyfriend who still loved her. Due to a fatal misunderstanding, involving Fujie mistaking Yuko for Yoko, Akiyoshi fell into despair and plunged himself onto a knife, making it appear as if he had been murdered by Yoko in order to take revenge on her. Luckily, Conan found out the truth before damage could be inflicted on Yoko's career.[1][2]

Overcoming her grief, Yoko has carried on her career and has remained a friend and valuable contact to Kogoro and Conan in the TV and idol industry ever since. She has also gone on to appear in several movies, such as "Kiss Note" and "Zombie Blade".

[edit] Personality

Yoko is a modest and friendly person whose fame hasn't got into her head and is devoted to her friends and fans; perhaps one of the reasons she has remained popular to this day.

[edit] Kogoro Mouri

Kogoro Mouri is completely infatuated with the young popstar and has all of her appearances in movies and music on tape and DVD, and has even once appeared on her cooking show. Yoko in turn considers Mouri, Ran, and Conan to be good friends. She often suggests Kogoro for participation in her TV shows and commercials, and often invites him, Ran and Conan to parties and dinners. However, the latter often tend to evolve into murder cases.

[edit] Kaoru Kusano, Yuki Takeno, and Terumi Hoshino

She has remained close to her former band members throughout the years. In episode 249 she invited Kogoro, Ran, Conan and her former band members Yuki Takeno, and Terumi Hoshino to Kaoru's wedding party, although it was ruined when Kaoru was attacked and almost killed by getting her throat slit, however she survived.

[edit] Ryusuke Higo

In a TV interview broadcast during the Kite-Flying Competition Murder Case he reveals he attended the same high school Yoko Okino did.

[edit] Trivia

  • In Episode 495, Yoko is seen singing Yukidoke no Ano Kawa no Nagare no Yō ni (the 29th closing song of the Detective Conan TV series) on TV.[6]
  • In her introductory case, there are cigarette stubs in an ashtray in her apartment despite her claims to not smoke. Some fans speculate that this may have been a hint at her being the boss of the Black Organization when the series was still planned to be short.
