Part 1

Conan, Masumi, Sonoko, and Ran go buy swimsuits in an upscale department store. The girls spend a while trying on many two-pieces, which causes Conan to remember something from the past. As goes out for a stroll to clear his mind. Conan witnesses the extremely bitchy behavior of a rich woman named Ritsuko Sashihara. She belittles and abuses another client (Tomoyo), the shop assistant in charge (Reia) and her assistant Ayami. Few later, Ritsuko is found strangled to death and bleeding in the dressing room. Conan and Masumi check on the corpse and realize that she left some dying clues, and Conan recalls more and more of the old incident that he's been thinking about through the shopping trip.

  • Resolution

    Manga to anime changes

    • Because the three manga chapters were not enough to make two episodes, some scenes were either made longer, or dialogues were added.
    • During her interrogation scene, Ayami is asked about the gifts in her purse. She tells the police that the boxes contain perfume and are a gift for the store manager. In the manga, Takagi requests to see the contents of her perfumes boxes. In the anime, however, Ayami herself offers to show him.
