Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

When a famous samurai movie star, Kozaburo Hijikata, hires Kogoro for some consultations, the group is led to believe that he wants to learn about detective work for an upcoming TV series where he is to star as a detective. However, rumors of an affair between his beautiful and much younger wife Isami Nagakura and stunt actor Hajime Okita can't help but lead Conan to doubt the reason. When Isami is found dead on Okita's balcony, the group believes it is an open and shut case, but Conan doubts the authenticity when he sees a big smile form on Hijikata's face. Which side is truly right?

Part 2[edit]

Kogoro tells the media all of the current suspicions so Inspector Megure and Detective Takagi can sneak Hijikata and Okita out the backdoor for questioning, but before doing so Conan goes up to the sixth floor to try and find some evidence that his suspicion of Hijikata being the killer is accurate. In the end one truth as always will prevail, but which side is truly innocent here?
