Kogoro-san is a Good Man (小五郎さんはいい人 Kogorō-san wa Ī Hito?) is the 661st and 662nd episode of Detective Conan anime.





Part 1

When Ran, Sonoko, Sera, and Conan are walking, they receive a phone call from Ran's father Kogoro, who asks her not to bother cooking dinner for him as he will be gone for the night. Upon Conan's explanations, the most logical explanation for Kogoro's behavior for the last few days is that he is carousing at a nearby beer garden. Ran, of course, gets understandibly upset about her father irresponsibility, but then an old lady named Takae Kiritani interjects, claiming that Kogoro has been visiting her lately and helping out with some minor household chores, free of charge.

Upon Ran's revelation that she is Kogoro's daughter, Ran and Conan accept Mrs. Kiritani's invitation for dinner, and soon meet the man the old lady believes to be Kogoro Mouri: a young student named Ryohei Onda, who was asked by Mrs. Kiritani's granddaughter, a fellow student, to help her grandmother against a burglar gang. Though even after the burglars were eventually caught, Onda kept visiting her and helping her out with chores and trivial problems. Now caught in the lie, Onda promises to let to of this deception after this visit, but unfortunately, a loud scream alerts everyone to a crime nearby: in a neighboring apartment house, a man was found in a pool of his own blood.


EP661-662 Case.jpg

Location: Apartment
Victim: Gensuke Denkawa
Age: 44 years old
Time: 5:00-7:00 pm
Cause of death: Slit wound on the throat
Suspects: Kumi Bannai, Ken Ishigame, and Junji Hyodo
Conan runs onto the scene past a broken door to find three people standing near a dead man who has collapsed in a doorway holding a knife in his right hand and a room key lying on the floor near him.

Conan asks three people why's the door busted. They answer that the bell on Denkawa's alarm clock wouldn't stop ringing so they came to his door to asked him to shut it down, but he didn't answer so they had no choice but to bust through the door and go inside and found him dead. They answer that all of a sudden, Denkawa started watching television really loud. What's more, he was just zapping through channels the whole time. Suddenly, the apartment landlady tells the three people not to worry because she brought the famous detective, Kogoro Mouri (which is actually Ryohei Onda pretending to be) to solve the case. Later, Sato and Takagi had arrived at the crime scene to investigate. They receive the testimony from three people at the crime scene. Takagi curiously asks Conan that what is he doing at the landlady's house and Ran says that she is an acquaintance of the landlady so Conan came with him. Sato asks Onda of who he is and Onda acts so nervous. The landlady cannot believe that the police doesn't know that the famous detective, Kogoro Mouri is here. Of course Sato knows Kogoro, but until sudden the landlady tells Ran that she's Kogoro's daughter so she wants her to tell the police something. Ran thanks Sato for taking care of Kogoro, while pretending. Sato and Takagi got confused and wondered what exactly is going on.

As Ran secretly told Sato and Takagi everything about why Onda is pretending to be Kogoro Mouri, they'll play along to make the landlady not to find out. So back to the investigation, forensics put the estimated time of death between 5 and 7 PM last night. According to the three people's testimonies, Denkawa was alive around 6 PM, the room key was near the body, and he was holding a bloodstained kitchen knife in his right hand. Judging from the situation, it seems that Denkawa slit his own throat after the three people went out between 6 and 7 PM. Conan doesn't thinks it's suicide and he wonders if the grim reaper did this. The key is on the blood but there's no blood on the key. When Conan found the body, he touched the key a little, it was slightly warm. That's probably because someone hid the key in their palms and threw it near the body when those three entered the room to make it look like the room was sealed. One of the three people who broke the door and entered the room did this. One of those three must've thought that after murdering Denkawa, they'd make a perfect alibi. The three people ask that what was the loud tv sound they heard before setting off and they're certain it's coming from Denkawa's room. Sato answers that someone probably recorded the tv sound ahead of time and used the timer to play it. But then they say the first thing they heard was the 6 PM news, and the date, the weekday and the contents were all from yesterday. Denkawa started zapping two or three times later tough. Sato then thinks he used the DVD or the tape recorder. Nowadays, TVs can turn off automatically if you schedule the time for a program you want to watch and using several extra devices you can make it look like it's zapping through channels. Conan doesn't think that's possible because there's only one tv in the room and doesn't look like there's a timer either. One of the fans fell over and it was Hyodo who tripped on it and knocked it over. He wanted to stop the alarm as soon as possible. The room was dark when three people came in. Bannai tripped on the legs of the body and skinned her elbow. Finally, Ishigame pulled on the cord to turn on the light. Though the room's quite tidy, the laundry was left undried, and there are clothespins scattered all over the place. The newspaper leaflets on the futon also took off. What's more, there's only one tv, so why are there two tv remotes? Conan suddenly notice there's a bloodstain on the side of the remote. He moves the curtain to see through the window. What Conan sees is the next door house of the landlady. He is now certain that the killer is one of those three who found the body.

Part 2

Three people are being impatient right now because they're waiting for the police to let them go free until they solve the case. The landlady tells the apartment residents to stop complaining. She also grabs Onda and tells the police that the great detective is right here, so she tells them to ask him an opinion. Suddenly, Onda tells the landlady to hold on and accidentally calls her mother. Later, the landlady's cell phone rings. She opens the cell phone and answers by saying hello. No one is answering because it's actually email. Conan asks the landlady to borrow the cell phone for checking the email. The email is from her granddaughter and it says, "It's been a while, grandma. It's been three months since we last met when I went to Tokyo for my high school reunion. But thanks to my husband's schedule, we'll be back in Tokyo next month. We'll bring our son and look forward to seeing you." It seems that her granddaughter was married already which means what Onda said about being the landlady's granddaughter's boyfriend was a lie.

Meanwhile, the three suspects are wondering if "Kogoro Mouri" can solve the case quickly as soon as possible because they are getting tired of waiting. The police tells them to hold on because even if Kogoro can't solve the case yet, they got no intention of letting them go since they're suspects. Now the three suspects got suspicious of why is the police always following Kogoro Mouri's instructions are ignoring him this time round is because they brought the fake Kogoro Mouri. Sato asks Takagi that they should spill the beans but Takagi said they made the promise to Ran. Unfortunately, Ran said never mind the promise because she wants to find out what's Onda's real purpose of being the fake Kogoro Mouri. Onda is acting so nervous and he sweats a lot. Conan used the voice changing bowtie using Onda's voice saying, "Then as you wish. The great Kogoro Mouri shall reveal the truth behind this case." Conan then drags Onda to the kitchen while pulling his arm where they could talk. Conan told Onda that he called the real Kogoro and heard the truth behind the case from him so Onda will have to go along what Conan says with his deduction.
