Location: Tanaka household
Victim: Unknown
Cause of death: Blunt force trauma
Suspects: Kazuyoshi Tanaka and Tomofumi Tanaka

They call the police, and Inspector Megure arrives with a squad to investigate. The elder brother, a rough and rude man, lets them into the house but then goes into a room while they search. The soft-spoken younger brother arrives soon after, but is cooperative with the police. However, despite a thorough examination of the entire house, no corpse is found. Inspector Megure believes that the Detective Boys were playing a prank and the police leave, to Conan's frustration.



Manga to anime changes[edit]

  • The manga version of the story takes place before "Ayumi-chan Kidnapping Case", and is the first story with the Detective Boys' Badges. The story begins with Conan giving them to Mitsuhiko, Genta and Ayumi at school. Afterwards, they go into the P.A. Room to announce themselves to the school as The Detective Boys, only to be kicked out by a teacher, which then ends with them (except for Conan) imagining the fame that will come with their cases. The entire scene is absent from the anime.
  • In the manga, after Conan knocks out Tomofumi with an iron kettle with the Power-Enhancing Kick Shoes, the kick causes him considerable pain in the foot and he jumps up screaming. Conan's pain is not depicted in the anime episode.

Translation changes[edit]


  • The names of the characters in the Funimation Dub are:
  • Hiroki - Harry
  • Kazuyoshi Tanaka - Hamilton Timberman
  • Tomofumi Tanaka - Hadrian Timberman
