Honami Shimogasa (下笠 穂奈美 Shimogasa Honami?) and Minaho Shimogasa (下笠 美奈穂 Shimogasa Minaho?) are characters in the anime franchise Detective Conan.


The two standing together.

They initially worked as maids for a former singer star. After she was murdered, they got introduced by a person, who was an acquaintance of the hotel staff, and became employees of that hotel.


They do not usually show any exaggerated emotions, and speak in a steady, ruthless tone. They know each other fairly well, and their speeches and movements are all synchronised, probably with telepathy. When they perceive a sense of crisis, especially when seeing horrendous murder cases, they hug together.


They are identical twins with short brown hair, and wear a maid outfit.

  • Abnormally, these characters appeared in two anime-original cases, although having different screenplay writers: Koujin Ochi and Chiaki Hashiba. Ochi was the screenwriter who created these characters. When the second case was aired, Hashiba had already passed away, and precisely Ochi was responsible for the storyboard and episode director. Therefore, Shimogasa twins were not included in the original script by Hashiba, and they have been added by Ochi during the episode conception.
