The Casebook of Female High-School Detective Sonoko Suzuki
Sonoko volunteers herself to write and direct a stage play by Teitan High School students for charity at a church. She came up with a murder case featuring characters from the series (i.e. Kogoro, Megure, etc.) and herself as the female high school detective who will solve the case. However, she can't come up with the meaning of the dying message the victim leaves, and how the rest of the story plays out.
At first, Sonoko asked Ran to talk to Kogoro for suggestion on how the meaning of the dying message should be. He ended up saying the same thing as his deduction in Sonoko's script. Ran then decided to call Shinichi hoping he could give a good suggestion, but Shinichi said he'll call her later. So, in the meantime, the Detective Boys tried to help Sonoko come up with the story.
The case below is the story Sonoko came up with for the stage play.
- In this OVA, Haibara makes Sonoko cry because of the loopholes in her stage drama play.
- The representation of the drama play was presented in Beika Church.
- The title of the case comes from a book of Arthur Conan Doyle titled The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes.
- Although this case in non-canon, Sonoko observed that Conan goes to the bathroom a lot, which happened twice in this OVA, and both times was to get on the phone as Shinichi.
- Although it was only in imagination land, when Shinichi called Ran, he was playing the violin, which is the first time to see him play a musical instrument so far.
- This is the first case, however non--canon, that shows the windows that spell out "Mouri Detective Agency" do actually open, by sliding over or under another window.
- The usage of the song "Amazing Grace" can be seen as referencing the movie from the same year Full Score of Fear. Likewise, important instruments used in the movie appear in the ending credits (flute, recorder, violin).
- A homage to the movie E.T. is made.
