Detective Club Pursuit Case (探偵団大追跡事件 Tantei-dan Daitsuiseki Jiken?) is the 109th episode of Detective Conan anime.





Conan is chasing the robber with the skateboard. While chasing, Conan contacts the Detective Boys with their badges to get ready to trap the robber. When the robber is trapped, Conan kicks the can to knock the robber into the trap successfully capturing him. The police thank them for their great help and are awarded for their efforts. A sinister shadow reads the newspaper about Conan and the kids latest triumph and smiles menacingly.

After Conan, Ran, Kogoro, Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, and Genta have finished eating at the restaurant Kogoro has treated them to. They are seen walking down a narrow alley discussing a case, when Conan notices a red sportscar coming up from behind them. They prepare to move to the side, but suddenly the driver accelerates, clipping Ayumi and then bailing.

Hit and Run

EP109a Case.jpg

Location: Town streets
Victim: Ayumi Yoshida
Injury: Hit by a car
Suspects: Kenichi Shishido
The culprit escaped after hitting Ayumi.

Shocked and outraged, Ran tends to Ayumi while Kogoro leaves to call the police and an ambulance; and Conan, Mitsuhiko, and Genta take up pursuit of the culprit on Conan's skateboard.

As they rush after the driver, Conan notices to his confusion that the car constantly keeps stopping, then accelerating away as they come near it, as if the culprit deliberately wants them to stay on his tail. They briefly lose their quarry near a closed-down sheet metal factory labelled Ishikura Industries, which sports a huge puddle and a lot of tire tracks at its rear entrances. As they begin to lose hope, the car suddenly reappears in the street before them before taking off once more. But the greatest puzzle in this case is yet to come: The car suddenly stops on a public street, causing Conan and company to bump right into its tail, and then the driver gets out, goes to a nearby police box, and turns himself in.

Later, at the Beika Hospital, the Detective Boys believe that the driver had allegedly panicked after having hit Ayumi and that his conscience finally convinced him to turn himself in, but Conan is not so sure that it is that simple. Fortunately, Ayumi was not seriously injured, but she lost her Detective Boys Badge in the accident, which is now nowhere to be found. When Conan promises to get her a new one from Professor Agasa, he earns himself Ayumi's gratitude and Mitsuhiko and Genta's jealous stares. But then Kogoro approaches, informing them that in the very same factory the boys had passed by during the pursuit, a murder has taken place.


EP109b Case.jpg

Location: Ishikura Industries
Victim: Hisashi Ishikura
Age: 50 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound in back
Suspects: Kenichi Shishido

At the factory, Kogoro meets with Megure and Takagi, who inform him that the victim is the factory's manager, Hisashi Ishikura, who came to his closed facility for a check-up and apparently encountered a burglar in the process, which happened about an hour ago, at the same time the Detective Boys had passed the place.

Conan however, notices immediately that Ishikura had been tied up with duct tape at or just before the time of his death, but the tape had been removed, and that the external entrance to his office, which opens to the building's back, is in plain sight of a tobacco stand run by an elderly woman. Furthermore, Genta and Mitsuhiko find a photo on Ishikura's desk which depicts a number of people who were arranged for a group shot, among them the hit-and-runner they had chased.

At the Beika Police Station, the hit-and-runner, a man by the name of Kenichi Shishido and an employee of Ishikura's until a month ago, claims that after hitting Ayumi, he had passed by the factory by mere coincidence, and the police likewise dismiss him as a suspect, as committing a hit and run, not to mention his voluntary surrender to the police, seems atypical for a murderer's behavior. Further confounding is the tobacco saleslady's statement that nobody had ever entered from the rear, and the Detective Boy's testimony about having covered the front entrance of the factory, which apparently rules him out for the crime. Not convinced, and determined to find more evidence, Conan returns to the crime scene, with Mitsuhiko and Genta in tow. But then Conan stumbles upon several clues which shed a new light upon that case, and with the help of his Voice-Changing Bowtie he arranges a meeting with Kogoro, Megure, Takagi, and Shishido at the factory.
