The J League Bodyguard (Jリーグの用心棒 J rīgu no yōjinbō?) is the 907th episode of the Detective Conan anime. This episode is a post-story for The Eleventh Striker.





The case first starts in an office where two suspicious men are gambling and watching results on a computer. The first man says, "They are taking it in right from the start," and the other replies with an affirmative. That first man continues by telling "The Japanese will understand what gambling is all about." As they watch results, the game then comes at 8-2. The second man asks if they should proceed with buying, and the first man says that it is being taken care of.
