Mina Katsumata (勝又 水菜 Katsumata Mina) is a character in the manga franchise Detective Conan.
Mina Katsumata is a shogi player from Tokyo, who lives in an apartment although, just like the five other members of her shogi practice group, she pays a part in the rent of an apartment for practice. She is the daughter of Chikara Katsumata, the actual tenant of the Osho title. She knows Shukichi Haneda very well, since he is her father's rival and is known to be quite good at shogi. She used to go out with Kinji Uryu, a shogi player who committed suicide because of the pressure he had from his shogi group.
She is quite short and has an asymmetric haircut and short black hair.
She is a gentle and nice person, and cannot withstand being in a crime scene. Although she wasn't best friend with the first victim, Yasukiyo Genda, she still cried a lot.
While Yumi was tailing her boyfriend, Conan followed her and both met Shukichi, who was talking with Mina and Shoko Uryu. They reveal themselves to be part of a Shogi practice group and, as they come to the shared apartment of the five players (Shukichi, Mina, Uryu, Kosuke Hishinuma, and Yasukiyo Genda), they discover Genda's lifeless body. The suspects are Mina, Uryu, and Hishinuma. After the police comes, a second murder occurs as another member of the practice group, Yusuke Kishimoto, who had taken a leave, is found dead in his house. She returns to her house frightened about the death of her two rivals. The serial killer is revealed to be Hishinuma.
