Detective Conan opening info[edit]

The animation for opening 21 had three different versions: One focusing on Takagi and Sato (487), one on Kogoro and Eri (489), and one on Conan, Ran, Heiji, and Kazuha (490), while episode 488 merely played the song over scenes of the main characters leaving for a TV studio rather than using an opening sequence. The first version is the only opening in the entire series to not feature Conan or Ran.

Conan's opening speech[edit]


("The glorious future is just one step away. Naturally, all my preparations are OK!")

Catalan (Catalonia)[edit]

"Fem un pas decidit cap a un futur gloriós. Estem del tot mentalitzats."

("Let's go steady towards a glorious future. We are totally prepared.")


Song info[edit]

The song was the last song ever recorded by the lead vocalist of the band, Izumi Sakai, before her death on May 27, 2007. The song was technically unfinished, as Sakai only recorded her vocals, which she did in the studio weeks before her death. Other parts from the song were from unfinished and unreleased recordings by the group, from various times. The song also featured Nakamura Yuri from GARNET CROW as a backing vocalist.
