Part 1[edit]

Robbery

EP845-846 Case1.jpg

Location: Asada's Law Office
Victim: Kimihiko Asada
Age: 55 years old
Missing items: Altered documents
Suspects: Unknown
Kogoro is asked by lawyer Kimihiko Asada to investigate a break-in and theft in his office. The object of the robbery was the altered last will of Gotaro Karahashi, the late chairman of the Karahashi Group, who - instead of favoring his next of kin, as previously intended - left his entire vast fortune to his lover and long-time secretary.
Kidnapping

EP845-846 Case.jpg

Location: Asada's Law Office
Victim: Conan Edogawa
Suspects: Unknown
While going shopping for new video games with his fellow Detective Boys, Conan noticed the burglary into Asada's office and decided to investigate on his own. He caught the culprit breaking the safe open, but was discovered, kicked into unconsciousness, and taken away.

Part 2[edit]

Accidental Homicide (Crushing)

EP845-846 Case2.jpg

Location: Kuriniji Scrapyard
Victim: Conan Edogawa
Cause: Left to be crushed
Suspects: Unknown
The kidnapper enclosed Conan in a box inside an unused hearse in order to secure the material witness and the altered testament, to be released after the original testament's purpose had been executed and thus made legally valid. However, unknown to the culprit, the hearse in question (with the box inside) was assigned to be scrapped and is driven to the Kuriniji Scrapyard. Fortunately, just before the car is compressed, the box cracks, allowing Conan to break out with his power-kick shoes.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the New Year Greeting to the viewers, Mistuhiko says that last year, Conan and Ichikawa Ebizo XI were the ones to do the New Year Greeting. This is a reference to Conan and Ebizo's Kabuki Jūhachiban Mystery.
  • There is a mistake in the first episode. In the earlier scene, Mitsuyo has the white and black shoes but Kozo's feet does not. Later all three siblings have on the white and black shoes. This is an important detail because the culprit wore this distinctive pair of shoes in Conan's flashback of him being kidnapped.
  • The sunset painting in Mitsuyo's house is from Wakamatsu villa in The Design of Poison and Mirage and Kataoka household in The Secret of the Statue of Kogoro Mouri. Open spoiler box to see images.
  • Yasuo Murakami is the same name of the culprit in A Dangerous Recipe.
  • Gotaro Karahashi's hearse is a 2013 Black Toyota Crown Hearse [S210]. The license plate number is 新宿 800, い 31-87 (Shinjuku 800, I 31-87).
  • The Japanese Buddhist style hearse crushed is a 1999 Black Toyota Crown Hearse [S180]. The license plate number is 新宿 800, あ 36-88 (Shinjuku 800, A 36-88).
  • The taxi is a 2001 Yellow Toyota Crown Sedan [XS10]. The license plate number is 新宿 500, い 54-68 (Shinjuku 500, I 54-68).
