Full Score of Fear
Full Score of Fear is the 12th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 19, 2008.
At the beginning, we find ourselves in a concert hall. Two musicians practice and a woman watches them intently. She takes out her phone to send a text, but as soon as she's finished, an explosion destroys the entire hall.
Somewhere else, an unknown person, looking like "the murderer" (a black silhouette of a man) reads about the explosion on the internet and celebrates, knowing it has brought him closer to "finally having a silent night again".
Conan looks for evidence outside the concert hall while he, as Shinichi, chats to Ran on the phone. He spots an old man wandering in his direction, who bends down and carefully picks up a piano key from the piano that was destroyed in the explosion, storing it in his pocket. Ran tells "Shinichi" that Sonoko got tickets to a rehearsal and a concert at the new Domoto Concert Hall (Sonoko's father provided a lot of funds for the hall) and asks Shinichi to join them, asking if he can't take a night off from his investigation. Shinichi declines and asks Ran to stop meddling. Ran gets angry with him, replying he wouldn't be able to appreciate the music anyway because he's completely tone deaf, unlike his role model Sherlock Holmes. She hangs up before he can reply.
At the rehearsal, Sonoko introduces Ran, Kogoro and the Detective Boys to the artists that will perform at the opening concert for Domoto Concert Hall: Kazuki Domoto, a former famous pianist who now plays the organ; Takumi Fuwa, who used to tune Domoto's piano for him and has now been appointed director of the hall; Hans Müller, a German organ tuner; Genya Domoto, Kazuki's son who is a pianist; Rara Chigusa, a soprano; Shion Yamane, a violinist and Reiko Akiba, a famous soprano singer. The children are delighted to meet Akiba and ask her a lot of questions about music, eventually getting her to agree to help their class choir in a choir competition where they sing the school anthem. Akiba reluctantly agrees because she also attended Teitan Elementary. She immediately tells everyone to leave, telling them "they're interfering with the rehearsal", but it is likely she wanted to take pressure off Shion who seemed rather nervous about having an audience.
Ran confesses to Sonoko that she is still angry at Shinichi. Sonoko recalls that this is by far not the first time and that they didn't speak for a week during their last argument. She wants to comfort Ran, asking her how she and Shinichi made up again that time. Ran says they still walked home from school together even though they didn't speak and stopped when they heard a beautiful voice singing by the river. The song made them forgive each other but Ran can't recall what song it was.
The following day, everyone meets at Teitan Elementary to practice the school anthem together, watched by Akiba. Ran plays the piano. Akiba gives her professional verdict to the choir: Genta was too loud, Mitsuhiko spent more time staring at Ai than singing with emotion, Ai sounds too much like an adult, Ayumi hit every note perfectly and sounded great - while Conan was comfortably the worst singer in the entire choir. Everyone laughs at Conan, who wonders if Akiba has perfect pitch.
Genta has snuck away from the group and taken a thermos flask out of Akiba's backpack, asking her if he can have some of the tea she's got with her. Before she can stop him, he takes a sip from the flask and doubles over in pain. They rush Genta to the next hospital. A doctor brings him back after his examination and treatment, explaining that there were chemicals mixed in with Akiba's tea which inflamed Genta's throat. Genta will not be able to speak for about four days.
Akiba, Sonoko and the Detective Boys accompany Genta home. Akiba says she wants to speak to Genta's parents about his behaviour, when suddenly a truck comes speeding towards them. They run and try to escape, pursued by the truck. Akiba trips and is about to be run over when a taxi appears and the truck takes an u-turn and drives off. The culprit escapes.
Two days later, Osamu Shiba, another musician working at the Domoto hall, is killed by an explosion. Police retrieve the footpiece of a flute from the scene.
The same day, Hisao Sone, a violinist at the Domoto Hall, goes paragliding. His glider has been manipulated, someone has cut the fabric several times and it catches fire, causing Sone to plunge to his death in the open sea. Next to the hill from which he took off, the police find the middle piece of a flute.
These two victims, together with the two dead victims from the earlier explosion, formerly belonged to a group called the quarter quintet. Conan, indebted to Akiba for a reason he has forgotten, follows her to the forest as she is known to relax there on the day before the concert. She is attacked by a gunner who wounds her leg. They escape when the gunner pauses on shooting the killing shot. She does not report this to the police to avoid missing the concert. Upon returning home, Akiba encounters Megure, Takagi and Sato who ask her about her fiancé Hikaru Soma, but she refuses to provide them information until after the concert has ended. Later, at Mouri Detective Agency, Megure reveals to Kogoro that the four victims forced Hikaru Soma to drink alcohol, thus leading to his death in a car accident. This fact makes Akiba, who has a motive, a possible suspect. Conan then asks Takagi whether Soma still had any relative who would want to avenge his death, but he says that he only had a deceased mother and a father whose identity and whereabouts are unknown to everyone.
|Accidental death (Past)|
Kogoro deduces that the murderer is Genya Domoto as a year ago the quarter quintet badly performed the 9th symphony of Beethoven whilst drunk. Kogoro assumes Domoto was a Beethoven fanatic and seeing one of his songs defiled by drunks, murdered them. An evidence he points out was Genya's hair was cut the same way as Beethoven. Genya reveals he got his hair from his mother and his hair is natural.
At Domoto Hall, the concert is being prepared. Sonoko says that a balcony is reserved with ten seats, with one for Shinichi. After rehearsal Conan and Akiba look for Kazuki to tell him a key for the organ is a little flat. Near a lake, she and Conan are knocked out by the assailant with a wrench. They wake up downstream where it would take hours before they are found.
They hear an explosion at the Domoto Hall. Since the concert hall is built to be soundproof and stable, the explosions outside could not be heard inside. The explosions are slowly destroying the pillars outside the hall to prevent entry or exit. Conan sees a phone on top of a building. He explains that phones work by hearing chords (a combination of one or more notes played at the same time) of sounds as numbers. He knocks the phone down with the ball and Akiba and Conan exert the right chords to dial 110, calling the police.
They take a helicopter and enter the building. There, Conan sees the assailant hiding in one of the VIP suites. He explains that the irregular note on the organ sets off an explosion and that there are 24 in total; 23 pillars, 1 in the main hall. He says the concert can't be interrupted because the assailant is holding a detonator also. Akiba buys time for Conan by interrupting the concert to by singing Amazing Grace which involves only the first set of keys on the organs whilst the detonator key is on the third row.
