Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

When a fan of Kogoro, who works as a famous potter, invites the Mouri family out to his place for the weekend, Kogoro wins an valuable cup of pottery. After a long night of drinking, the group awakes and finds that a suicide has taken place. Inspector Megure thinks it may be more than a coincidence, but what is the real truth behind this mystery?

Suicide?

Anime[edit]

  • The names of the characters in the Funimation Dub are:
  • Kikuemon (Birth name, Mankichi Tsuchiya) - Forgemaster (Birth name, Stygas Wafulcot)
  • Masuko Tsuchiya - Margery Wafulcot
  • Yoshihiko Arita - Artie Stonewall
  • Ryuichi Seto - Sammy Hammerstoltz
  • Kaoru Otani - Otto

Trivia[edit]

  • During the party, Kogoro is asked to tell his deductions on some of the cases he solved. He was asked to tell how he solved Tsukikage Island case and Kiritengu case which Conan solved while as he was asleep, so he avoids telling those stories. He insists on telling the reunion case which he partially solved and was not put asleep. But he had already told them that story. He also had already told them about museum case and magician case which he also partially solved and was not put asleep.
  • Conan notes that these are the only three cases that were solved while he was awake.
  • However, this is not true if TV original episodes are taken into consideration. In The Mystery Weapon Murder Case, the case was also partially solved by Kogoro and he was not put asleep, so he could have told that story during the party.
  • Inspector Megure is frustrated as he notices that wherever Kogoro goes, corpses are found.
  • In the manga Japanese version, the hiragana ideograms on Kaoru's surname meaning "Ooya" and not "Otani".
