  • Resolution


    • Storyboard artist Hiroaki Takagi revealed in his personal twitter account that Urasawa devised other cause of death initially, but when he was planning for the episode, he proposed that it is necessary to be altered, and the current cause of death which the victim drowns in the red bean paste was actually director Yasuichiro Yamamoto's idea.
    • Hiroshi Ogawa is named after the actual Detective Conan prop designer Hiroshi Ogawa.
    • The red car is a 2014 convertible Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The license plate is 新宿 300, に 5-93 (Shinjuku 300, Ni 5-93).
