Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya's Detective Notes 2 (円谷光彦の探偵ノート2(ツー) Tsuburaya Mitsuhiko no Tantei Nōto Tsū?) is the 1096th episode of the Detective Conan anime.




After a long day of helping to clean and tidy the birdhouses at the park shed, the Detective Boys inquired of the park warden, Satoshi Kimishima, if he had more work to deploy to them. Fearing that he would not trust their abilities, they introduced themselves. After that, Kimishima finally asked them if they could find the owner of a hat that had stayed in the lost-and-found box for so long that it was time to dispose of it. After the Detective Boys had accepted the offer, the park warden walked towards another man, Hayato Izumiya, who was handing Kimishima a big purse filled with stuff. According to the park warden, there are many visitors that give the birds food, so it must be a bag full of food.

The lost hat.

Mitsuhiko, using his perceptive observation skills, along with his astonishing deduction skills, managed to find the hat owner. Evidently, the owner of that hat is named Nozomu Katsumi. He was also surprised when Mitsuhiko handed him the hat and inquired how he knew it was his. Since the symbol on the hat looked custom-made, it was most likely an amateur baseball team. In addition, they contacted the hat manufacturer, following the clues, which helped them find Katsumi's teammates - that was how he found the hat owner. After that, Mitsuhiko disclosed that he actually consulted the "canon" of Sherlock Holmes Stories. And this time it was "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle".

When the Detective Boys left Katsumi's premise, they found out by questioning some regular park visitors that most of their (or their friend's) jewels were stolen by the new burglar. That was infamously known in the entire district, and a police officer the Detective Boys met informed every resident and strengthened their awareness of it. At the same time, Haibara showed a police officer a sketch book that a female old lady gave her. There were a lot of drawings she drew within this park, and after the police officer had seen it, he pointed at a man drawn on the sketch book, which was apparently the park warden, Kimishima, and said that he had questioned him three times already because he felt him being somewhat suspicious, however, no falws were found on him. This sentence gave Conan a clearer idea of what was going on. And combining the discovery Mitsuhiko found, which all of the people who got robbed were regular park visitors, Conan figured out the culprit's trick of stealing jewels. Conan claimed Kimishima was the burglar, who knew the park visitors' time out. With this information, he could steal the jewels when the visitors were strolling out in the park. Moreover, to avoid any evidence being left on himself, he decided to take advantage of the pigeons he raised. With some practice, it should not be difficult to make them steal the jewels. He knew very well that pigeons have "homing instincts", which are their ability to return to their nests. But when the Detective Boys went to see Kimishima, they found Kimishima struggling in the head with tonnes of blood. What happened to him?

Attempted Murder

Location: Warden's cabin
Victim: Satoshi Kimishima
Age: 32 years old
Modus Operandi: Blunt-force trauma
Suspects: Unknown

The Detective Boys analysed the situation of this attempted murder: there were leather shoeprints on the floor, which were apparently not the victim's since Kimishima wore sneakers; and the weapon to strike the victim's head was the bat left in the lost-and-found box. In other words, the culprit was someone Kimishina knows, probably an accomplice or a robbery-related person. The mess in the shed might not be the result of their tussling, but Conan deduced that the culprit must have been searching the shed to find someone. Most likely flee away when seeing the arrival of the Detective Boys, they must be hiding somewhere in this park to watch out for another opportunity to sneak in once again. Later on, the Detective Boys began their investigation into "finding the culprit". When the sun was about to set, all of the members of Detective Boys had gathered together, except Mitsuhiko, who was still poking around in the park.

Inside the restroom, Mitsuhiko was washing his hands. When he lifted his hands upward, he recalled himself carrying the birdhouse this morning, which made him think of something. He swiftly ran out of the restroom and went to the shed, seemingly understanding the truth of the case. On the other hand, the culprit was watching him at the back of the tree trunk. Thus, what did Mitsuhiko find out? And who is the culprit?

    And so, my epiphany solved the case once again. I had quite the scare, too, but you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. I'm one step closer to becoming Watson.
