Momiji: Iori...


Momiji: Can you let me hear it again, just to confirm?


Iori: Absolutely, Momiji-sama.

Momiji: Are you serious? Heiji...


Heiji: Don't let me repeat it countless times, big idiot!!


Heiji: If, if such a thing truly exists...

 

p.2
Heiji: I'll listen to whatever you want.

File 1039: Momiji's Challenge Letter


Series Chapter 1


An elegant face, yet concealing some kind of conspiracy.

 

p.4

 

Ran: Dear Mōri Ran-sama, this is Ooka Momiji...

 

Ran: Please forgive me for writing you so suddenly...

 

Ran: I have a code that I would very much like for Kudō Shinichi, whom I met in Kyōto, to solve...

I shall forward images of the code...

 

Ran: A code?

 

SFX: beep

p.5

 

Ran: The recently deceased, long-standing housekeeper of a certain wealthy person...

Sent this code to her four sons just before her death...

I understand that she wanted to leave the terrific treasure she had received from her master during her lifetime...

 

Ran: It appears that she loved mysteries and so, in order for her sons to work together to reach the treasure...

 

Ran: She sent each of them on sheet of the code...

However, after the letters had been sent, all communication from the eldest son suddenly stopped...

 

Ran: Maybe the eldest son had already solved the code and encountered some kind of trouble in the location of the treasure?

 

Ran: That's what the three brothers inquired about at that wealthy person's house...

 

Ran: Which is why said wealthy person requested our Ooka household, with whom they are connected, solve the code...

 

Ran: From what I have heard, Kudō Shinichi is a famous high-school detective!

 

Ran: In truth, I wanted to write to him directly, but I do not have his contact details...

So I reached out to you, with whom I had exchanged contact details, instead...

 

Ran: I happen to be coming to Tokyo today...

 

Ran: So I shall tell you more at 4pm on the roof of the Haido Central Building...

 

Ran: Wait! That's only three hours from now!

 

Ran: I need to call Shinichi immediately!

 

Ran (thoughts): Ah, but...

 

Ran (thoughts): Talking to him directly might still be too embarrassing...

 

Ran (thoughts): Maybe I better send a message...

 

Ran (thoughts): I'll also have to forward the code...

 

p.6

 

Voice: Summer holidays start tomorrow!

 

Genta: We can play games at the professor's house non-stop!

 

Ayumi: Yes!

 

Mitsuhiko: Let's relish it!

 

Ayumi: You should play too, Conan-kun!

 

Conan: Ah, yeah...

 

Ai: It's all right!

He's currently absorbed in a different kind of game...

 

Ai: A game called code breaking...

 

Agasa: What's up with that code?

 

Conan: Ran sent me the code...

Conan: It seems that there's something more to it...

 

Agasa: And? Have you solved it?

 

Conan: No, I still have no idea...

 

p.8

 

Ran: No reply from Shinichi… even though I've got to leave for Haido Central Building very soon or I won't be on time… maybe i really should call...

 

Conan: I'm home–!

 

Ran: Welcome home!

 

Conan: Shinichi-niichan called me! he's busy so he can't go to Haido Central Building, so he said to go with Ran-neechan and listen to the explanation!

 

Conan: If we're leaving right away, I'll go put my bag upstairs and be right back!

 

Ran: Y–yeah…

 

Ran: Why not to me… but Conan-kun?

 

Ran: W–Well… maybe Shinichi is also embarrassed to call directly…

 

p.9

 

Conan: That tall building, right? Haido Central Building…

 

Ran: Yeah! but the rooftop of such a building, can regular people just go there?

 

Man: "Kudō Shinichi-sama's companion, Mōri Ran-sama, yes?"

 

Ran: Ah, yes…

 

Man: "Sorry to keep you waiting, please enter…"

 

p.16

 

Momiji: Everyone…apologies for the wait…

 

Momiji: I'm Ooka Momiji!

 

Heiji: Ya can skip the introductions, give us the details already!

 

Momiji: Even if i say details, it's only one extra line… it's written "from mother, the football fan" in the code, but…

 

Momiji: She's never seen "football"… that is to say, a soccer match… not even once, you know?

I wonder why Momiji called both Heiji and Shinichi. Only one of them was enough to solve the code.

 

Spoiler

probably to give Heiji an incentive to compete in her planned bet on that if Shinichi wins, Heiji will marry Momiji (based on chinese spoilers).

Momiji is as pushy as Masumi. She is just more polite about it.

 

Spoiler

Hopefully no killing in this case? Poor eardrums if all three ladies scream at the same time

I found the English translate "From your Real Madrid Fanatic Mother". But when I check the raw version, it is actually Football フットボ ウルAnd I think the most important part is the bold part like フットボ ウル in the first and second code; and フットボ ウル (bow) in the third code.

File 1,040 text spoilers are now out, courtesy of Sakaki and Baka:

Spoiler

"Basically Heiji and "Shinichi" solve the code at the same time, and Heiji can't have none of that.
So Iori suggests they go to the place indicated in the code Haido warehouse 4 and whomever can deduce what's going on there wins the contest.
That's where they find a murdered dude. 
Basically the chapter ends with them using the newly murdered dude as the next "contest".
Kazuha is asking what would have happened if they couldn't or did solve the code after she came all the way to Tokyo and Momiji is like "I dunno".
Momiji is pretty pissed that Shinichi didnt turned up and thinks that this handed a Heiji a massive advantage by being present.
They solve the code by hearing something about "addition and subtraction" from Momiji (in a forceful manner, so she probably figured it out beforehand)
There is no new code btw. And the sons are also there since they all got a message from their mom to show up. Obviously there is nothing plot related in this file as well."

 

EDIT:

1,040 spoiler pics now out, with translation courtesy of Murakami, and the following link provided by Baka:

No break next week—we can expect 1,041 spoilers at this time next week.

 

UPDATE:

Here's a 1,040 text summary, courtesy of Murakami:

Spoiler

FILE 1040: From your footbowl loving mother (aka From your Real Madrid loving mother)

 

Momiji asks herself if Heiji, who knows that Shinichi won't be able to come to that place, isn't too advantaged.

Conan is connected [to Shinichi] through phone, and so follows them, with Ran being dissatisfied, asking why he contacted Conan and not her.

 

The sons of the housekeeper were adopted when their father died due to an illness, but never met for 30 years.

Only the eldest son and the housekeeper seemed to be in contact with them, through email.

 

Kazuha is worried that guys who could have heard speaking of treasure could have come and stole it, pretending to be one of the brothers.

According to Momiji, though, it's not a problem, because on the palm of the hands of the four brothers there is a burn trace, which hit their mother [and presumably was inherited by the sons].

 

Kazuha, seeing that Conan and Heiji found the place where the treasure is at almost the same moment, asks if they can't go on as if it were a tie.

Iori answers that if Shinichi sent the answer to Conan, then Shinichi solved it faster than Heiji.

 

Conan, who doesn't want his identity to be exposed by Heiji, covers up by saying that he was surprised by the loud voice and simply parroted what was being said, and thus it was basically at the same time.

So, following Iori's proposal, the person who will be able to shed light on the truth and on the reason of loosing touch with the elder brother will win.

 

Entering the place where the treasure is, the 4th warehouse of the Haido Harbor, they find the corpse of a man and three other shocked men nearby.

Apparently, the elder brother has died, and the other 3 people are the brothers.

 

Conan and Heiji understand that none of the brothers has touched the corpse, although it seems like an accident or a suicide.

With a closer inspection, though, they notice at once that it's a murder, caused by one of the three brothers.

 

Ran and Kazuha think that it isn't a game anymore.

On the other hand, Momiji says that the one who grasps the truth of the case first wins.

I don't remember seeing this explained but... what's "Happa"?  Why is Kazuha called that? Since I don't watch the movies, if it's something from the movie context, I don't get it :(

It is, indeed, movie context—from Movie 21, specifically (though if you're fluent in Japanese, you likely won't need to watch Movie 21 to get why Momiji calls Kazuha that).
