|List of episodes|
A man named Tatsuo Mori uses his physical resemblance to Kogoro Mouri to impersonate him at a traditional hotel near a creepy forest (probably inspired by the real Aokigahara Forest), where he is invited to investigate a case where a man is said to have committed suicide four-five years ago. Kogoro goes there without knowing about the double. On the way the trio is picked up by Detective Yamamura. Yamamura tells them about a man who committed suicide four-five years ago. There were a lot of strange things about the body. It had car keys, but no drivers license, cigarettes, but no lighter, and it was wearing a red winter coat, despite that a recipe, proved that he died in summer. Kogoro explains that the inn owner has hired him to investigate a mystery. Five years ago a long-haired man wearing a red coat arrived and paid the owner to keep a letter and a briefcase for him for a year. The instructions were that if the long-haired man came back, he should give him the briefcase, if someone else comes, the owner shall give him the letter. The day after another man came and ask for the briefcase. The owner gave him the letter as told to, and the man became mad upon reading it, torn it to pieces and left and was never seen again. The owner pieced together the letter, on which were written in red 'I kill you with my curse'. When they all arrive, they learn of the double. Kogoro is first enraged, but then he decides to play along and not reveal his identity. Later that night, Tatsuo is found hanged in his room.
Conan reveals that it is a murder and that it relates to the suicide incident five years ago.
- Misao Yamamura's car is a green 1999 Toyota FunCargo [XP20].
- This is the first case that shows Misao Yamamura is highly superstitious, as he warned Ran and Conan not to pick up an idol or statue of some kind, or a curse may befall them.
- After learning of his imposter, Kogoro gave the name Ejigo Mitsuemon, which is a reference to Mito Kōmon, a period drama that’s been on Japanese TV since 1969.
- The first case that shows that Ran's cellphone has a sea-cucumber strap.
- This is the first case, if not the only one, which inspector Misao Yamamura displayed that he does know somethings about sumo wrestling.
- At the end of the case, talking to some fangirls, Kogoro said that his name was, "Toyama Kingoro," which might be Tōyama Kingorou, who is a fictional character from the 1981 tv series Yattodetaman.
