The Last Wizard of the Century is the 3rd movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 17, 1999.
Ayumi watches a vampire movie on TV. The movie has just reached an exciting part, a vampire meets a woman dressed in white, when Ayumi's mother comes in and tells her to go to bed. Ayumi asks if she can continue watching for a bit but her mother reminds her that she has to go to school and that her class is going swimming the following day.
Ayumi goes to bed and sees a strange shadow on her balcony. It turns out to be the master thief Kaito Kid. Ayumi, still impressed by the movie, wants to know if Kid is Dracula but Kid tells her he isn't, he just needed a little rest and that Ayumi shouldn't tell anyone she's seen him. Kid gently presses a kiss to the back of Ayumi's hand. Suddenly, a police helicopter comes flying in and they hear Inspector Ginzo Nakamori shouting that he's spotted Kid and that they have to catch him now. Kid quickly says goodbye to Ayumi and jumps, opening his hang glider and flying away from the police.
At school, Ayumi excitedly tells her friends that she met "handsome" Kaito Kid. Conan thinks that he is going to catch the master thief one day.
On August 19, the police hold a meeting about Kaito Kid at Tokyo Metropolitan Police Headquarters. They start by giving an overview of Kid's criminal career: The thief with the case number 1412, better known as Kaito Kid, has committed 134 heists in Japan, the USA, France, Germany and 12 other overseas countries, stealing jewels worth a total of 38.925.000.000 yen. Kid recently announced his new heist in his usual cryptic fashion: "Between the dusk of the Lion and the dawn of the Virgin, when the second hand on the clock indicates the twelfth symbol, I will take the Memories Egg from Shining Sky chamber. The last wizard of the century, Kaito Kid."
The Memories Egg is a priceless egg made by famous jeweler Fabergé and belonged to the Russian Imperial family, the Romanovs. It was recently discovered in a collection of antiquities belonging to the Suzuki corporation.
The Memories Egg was originally a gift from the Russian czar to his wife on Easter Sunday. It belonged to a collection of rare eggs made by famous jeweler Fabergé between 1885 and 1916. So far, fifty of these eggs have been found worldwide, meaning the Memories Egg will be the fifty-first piece. The Suzuki corporation which currently owns the egg plans to display it in the Modern Arts museum in Osaka beginning on August 23rd.
Inspector Nakamori explains the current state of the investigation. Police believe that "between the dusk of the Lion and the dawn of the Virgin" indicates the day Kaito Kid plans to commit his heist. The astrological sign Leo ends on August 23 and the astrological sign Virgo begins on August 23, meaning Kaito Kid wants to steal the egg between dusk on August 22 and dawn on August 23. As for the next part, "when the second hand on the clock indicates the twelfth symbol", police think this must be a reference to the time Kaito Kid wants to break into the museum, but they don't have a definitive answer yet. Following Director Suzuki's wishes, the police asked Kogoro Mori to help protect the egg. Nakamori implores his officers to work together with their colleagues in Osaka and to protect the egg at all costs, telling them it doesn't matter if Kid escapes this time ... but then he changes direction and holds a fiery speech, telling everyone their reputation is on the line if they don't catch Kid as well and that they have to finally put him behind bars. He is met with loud cheers.
Kogoro, Ran and Conan get off the train in Osaka and Sonoko picks them up, announcing that she's giving them a ride in the family limousine. She introduces everyone to their driver, her father's secretary Masato Nishino who speaks English, French and German fluently and has already visited lots of overseas countries.
Meanwhile, the Detective Boys visit Professor Agasa and tell him it's unfair that Conan gets to go to Osaka by himself. Agasa cheers them up by bringing them slices of watermelon. When they want to eat, Agasa stops them, saying they are only allowed to eat if they solve his newest riddle: "I (meaning Agasa) have many grandchildren, how old are they?" Ai answers: "zero" which is correct and Agasa asks her to explain her reasoning. The solution is one of Agasa's beloved puns: "washi" (a way for elderly people to say "I") can also be read as "eagle" and "many ooku no mago" (grandchildren) can also mean many "egg's children" (tamago) - and an egg is zero years old. The Detective Boys are impressed with Ai, as is Agasa, and they all happily eat watermelon.
Meanwhile in Osaka, the limousine finally arrives at the Suzuki Modern Arts Museum. When the group got out of the limousine, they see lots of police officers guarding around the museum. While looking, they meet Heiji and Kazuha.
In the chairman's room, the chairman of the Suzuki Financial Group and Sonoko's father, Shiro Suzuki is glad meeting the detective, Kogoro Mouri. When he asks Sonoko who are the other two from Osaka, Sonoko introduces Heiji Hattori, the high school detective from Osaka and Kazuha Toyama, Heiji's childhood friend to her father. Later, Chairman Suzuki introduces the people to the group. First is the Russian Embassy's first class representative named Sergei Ovchinnikov, the art dealer named Shoichi Inui, a Chinese woman who's a Romanov Dynasty researcher named Seiran Hoshi and she says, "Ni hao" in Chinese saying, "How are you". Finally, the freelance reporter covering the egg's origins named Ryu Sagawa. When Kogoro asks about the business's cost, Inui answers that it's 800 million. He mentions that if the chairman is willing to sell the egg, he can raise the bid. Until sudden, Sergei tells the chairman that the Imperial Easter Egg belongs in native Russia and asks why sell it to some unknown collector when he can donate it to the National Museum of Mother Russia. Inui gets offended when Sergei calls him unknown. After the conversation about the egg, they left and they'll talk to the chairman later about the egg. Nishino brought the box that contains the egg and places on the table. After that, he was ordered by Chairman Suzuki to bring drinks to the group. When Chairman Suzuki opens the egg, there's a golden model of Tsar Nicholas II and his family inside. Chairman Suzuki inserts the key in the egg and turns it to reveal the trick of Nicholas turning the page of the book. In Fabergé's files old files, they found the plans of the egg. The file shows the picture of the egg and the golden statue of Nicholas II and his family. In the egg's title, "Memories Egg" is translated from Russian to English. It's labeled, "ВОСПОМИНАНИE" on top of the picture of the Imperial Easter Egg. In Russian, it should be: "po spi mai naii." Which is literally translated as memories. Conan asks why is the book itself called Memories and Kogoro answers the Tsar got his children together to read them a story and that's the memory. Conan then asks about the Tsar had this egg made for the queen and wouldn't she feel cheated. Chairman Suzuki answers according to the time the 51st egg was created, Russia was in a period of financial depression. Speaking of that, in Kid's message, he mentioned the Shining Sky's chamber and why would Osaka Castle be shining is what Heiji wonders. Kazuha says the one who built the Osaka Castle, noted the base of Osaka Castle was beautiful, so Kid's saying it is a light shining on Osaka's history. Superintendent Chaki and Inspector Nakamori appears and they have no doubt that Kid will be appearing at the Osaka Castle but they still have no clue about, "When the second hand upon the clock's face hints to the twelfth symbol" means. Kogoro deduces that it's an alphabet letter and the 12th letter in English is the letter L meaning 3 o'clock. Kid will be coming at 3 AM which is what "through the dawn of the virgin" means.
At Naniwa Buddha Shrine, Ran got a good fortune saying, "The one who waits will meet with love once more." Conan and Heiji just left the shrine so they could talk more about Kid's riddle. After that, Conan checks the fortune he got from the shrine and it says, "No one is hurt when a tsunami destroys your home." Conan also found, "Misfortune: Secrets will be revealed."
At the museum, Chairman Suzuki and Kogoro are planning going to a restaurant to have dinner for killing time since Kid will be coming at 3 AM. Nakamori appears and he's about to take the egg. Kogoro asks is it going to the exhibit. Nakamori reveals it's a fake. The police have tried to take the target where Kid mentions in his notice and trap him, but that doesn't work against Kid. Now the plan is to hide it somewhere he doesn't know of. Kogoro asks where will it be, but Nakamori can't tell him. Only Nakamori and his subordinates know the location. Nakamori already checks his subordinates' faces to see if they're Kid or not. Until sudden, Kogoro pulls Nakamori's cheeks with his both hands to see if it's possible that he's Kid. Then Nakamori starts pulling Kogoro's cheeks but they are both fighting by pulling each other's faces. While they are fighting, there's a dove with a hearing device.
At the Japanese Restaurant "Kakahei", Chairman Suzuki and Kogoro are having a good time watching the fireworks while having dinner together. Conan knows that the fireworks at Osaka Castle are to divert attention away from Tsuuten Tower. When Conan asks Nishino where the egg is, he answers that Nakamori took it to another location. Meanwhile, Kid now uses the remote to make the bombs exploded at the power substation (Kansai-electric-power Haginochaya Substation) which made the entire city turned the power outage (Blackout). When few places haves turned the emergency power back on, Kid now knows where the egg is located and it's in the warehouse. Kid flies to the warehouse with his hang glider. Conan went after Kid with the skateboard but later he got stuck in a dead end. He went with Heiji on the motorcycle instead. Once they get to the warehouse, Conan enters and went upstairs. He found Kid stealing the egg and Nakamori with the police detectives knocked out. Kid fires with his card gun to create a smoke and flies away. Conan went down by using the rope and went back on the motorcycle with Heiji. Later, Heiji got hurt when he fell down and tells Conan to keep chasing Kid. While Kid is flying, the mysterious unknown culprit fires at Kid's right eye with the gun and he fell into the sea.
After Conan found the injured dove and the egg, he can't find Kid's body. The police conducted a wide-area search for him and no one knows whether Kid is dead or alive.
The next day on August 23rd, to assure the egg's well being, the exhibition was cancelled so it could be examined. The group returned to Tokyo on the Suzuki's Luxury Liner. In the luxury liner, Natsumi is having a conversation with the chairman. She says her great-grandfather's name is Kiichi, he worked with Fabergé's company as a craftsman. While working in Russia on fine arts, he married a woman and returned to Japan. Not long after her great-grandmother gave birth to a girl. Not long after, she passed away. Nine years later, her great-grandfather died at age forty-five. That baby girl would be Natsumi's grandmother. Her grandfather and parents both passed away in a car accident when she was five years old. She was raised by her grandmother. Unfortunately, she passed away last month. Natsumi previously worked in Paris as a beautician. After coming to Japan, she was looking through her grandmother's possession. When she came across this, it's an old sketch by her great-grandfather. It looks like the middle is missing though. Conan found something strange that there could be two eggs because if it was the same egg, the outline aligns. Conan thinks it was actually a large sketch with two eggs drawn, and now the middle is missing. He now wonders what "Memories" actually mean while examining the egg but until sudden, he found a piece of glass under the egg and touches it. The glass falls off. When he picks it up, he found a strange reflection. Conan tells Nishino to turn off the lights and uses the wristwatch flashlight on the glass to create a projection on the wall. It shows an image of the castle. It's a mirror that's been modified with images, originally from Asia. Legend states followers of the Christian faith used these special type of mirrors to project the cross in secret. The image is the Yokosuka Castle and it was built by Natsumi's great-grandfather, and in turn her grandmother inherited it. Kogoro deduces that while Natsumi's grandfather was fleeing from the Russian Revolution, he brought the two eggs along with him. Then, Kogoro believes that her grandfather sold the gems from second egg which leads to believe that he built the castle and hid the gem-less egg there. He then left the hidden message in the egg's mirror for his descendants to discover. Natsumi brought the key that she found with the design and asks is it important. Kogoro says that must be it and the key to the second's egg's location is somewhere in the castle. Kogoro will be going to the castle with Natsumi including the people that they all wanted to go.
Ran and Conan are healing the dove by putting bandages on. Someone knocks on the door and they check who it is. It's actually Sagawa recording with his camera and left. Sonoko, Natsumi, and Nishino appears and enters the room where Conan and Ran are staying. When the dove flaps it's own wings, Nishino fled quickly while covering his nose.
Sonoko and Conan went to Seiran's door and invites her to go to Ran's room to have fun. Seiran thanks Sonoko for the invitation and gets ready. They notice the back of the picture frame that says, "Grigori". Sonoko asks is it her boyfriend and Seiran says yes while putting down the frame to cover the picture.
In Ran's room, Natsumi told Ran that she has been living in Paris since she was twenty. Natsumi's eyes are gray. Her mother and grandmother have the same color eyes. Seiran also has gray eyes too. Ran mentions that Seiran's name means blue orchid and her name means orchid. Seiran says her name is the Japanese pronounciation, originally it is Chinglan. Sei is Ching, Ran is Lan. Hoshi is Pusi, so her name is Chinglan Pusi. Ran Mouri's name is Lan Maoli and Sonoko Suzuki's name is Yuanzu Lingmu. Seiran and Natsumi both have the same age since Seiran was born on May 5th and Natsumi was born on May 3rd. Once Conan said he was born on May 4th, Ran got suspicious that Conan is Shinichi because that's Shinichi's date of birth but she thinks it's impossible.
At afternoon, Natsumi and Serian took a seat with Kogoro and the chairman. When Kogoro pours a drink for Seiran, Seiran noticed that Sagawa is wearing a pendant. It's a ring and it's labeled "Maria". It belongs to Tsar Nicholas II's daughter, Maria. After he shows it to Seiran, he went back inside the luxury liner.
That night at 7:30 PM, Sagawa is murdered, shot in the right eye by the unknown culprit.
Nishino went to Kogoro and tells him that Sagawa is dead in his bedroom. When Kogoro, Ran, Conan, and Nishino went to Sagawa's bedroom, they found his dead body.
Kogoro examines the body that he was dead about 30 minutes ago and notices that the pendant has been taken. Kogoro tells the chairman to call the police.
At the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Headquarters, Inspector Megure receives a call and the police are on their way to the luxury liner by taking a ride on a helicopter. Takagi and Shiratori are also coming too. They arrived at the luxury liner and investigates the crime scene. Kogoro tells Megure that the culprit's motive is to steal the ring. Suddenly, the crime scene investigator found a pen which belongs to Nishino. When they went to Nishino by asking him if it's his pen or not, Nishino confirms it and wonders what's it doing in Sagawa's room. Nishino claims he was preparing dinner and went to tell Sagawa but he found him dead. Megure asks where was he at around 7:30 and Nishino answers that he was taking a shower in his room around 7:10 PM, then took a short nap. Takagi went to Megure and reports that the video tapes are missing in his room. That explains why the room was torn apart. Suddenly, Conan just ran off and Ran went after him. While Ran is looking for Conan, Shiratori appears behind her and he tells Ran to go back with the others and he'll search Conan for her.
Conan is on the phone talking to Professor Agasa and he requests for him to search for a criminal who shoots victim's right eye online. Agasa understands and he'll get to work. Later, Conan calls back to Agasa and Agasa says he found some information on the ICPO's criminal database. Age and gender: unknown, a thief wanted for murder. The unknown criminal is called Scorpion.
In Nishino's room, Takagi found the ring under Nishino's bed which means Nishino is the main suspect of murdering Sagawa. Nishino claims he didn't do it. Conan found a padded pillow and asks Nishino that is he allergic to feathers. Nishino says yes and Conan now confirms that Nishino is not the suspect. Conan reminds the police that in Sagawa's room, there are feathers at the crime scene. The culprit ravaged the entire room, tearing open the feather pillows. Someone with feather allergies wouldn't be able to do it. When the police ask the chairman, he confirms that Nishino is allergic to feathers. Even with just a few feathers, he can't stop sneezing. That's why Nishino uses padded pillows to sleep instead of using feather pillows. Sonoko remembers at that time when Nishino enters Ran's room, he ran out quickly because of the dove. Megure then wonders who is the culprit. Conan mentions about Scorpion, a criminal focused on stealing treasures of the Romanov Dynasty, and often kills by shooting through the right eye, which means Scorpion is the right suspect of killing Sagawa. The same suspect of attacking Kaitou Kid was Scorpion also. Scorpion attacked Kid in order to steal the egg. When Kogoro asks Conan why does he know criminals like Scorpion but Conan nervously can't answer it and suddenly, Shiratori says that he got the information from Agasa. Megure then asks why would Sagawa's missing ring show up in Nishino's room if the culprit is Scorpion. Nishino remembers Sagawa that he met him from three years ago in Asia. Sagawa was recording a video of a weeping girl who just had her house burned down. Nishino told him to stop, but when he didn't, he just punched his face to stop it. When Conan gave hints to Kogoro, he has finally got it. Kogoro deduces that it's two cases intertwined to one. The first case is Sagawa framing Nishino for stealing the ring. To do this, he made it seem as if Nishino stole the ring, that's why he presented it to the group of people. While Nishino was in the shower, Sagawa snuck into the room and hid the ring under the bed. Then, Sagawa took Nishino's pen. This was to complete his plan of stacking evidence against Nishino, but he didn't succeed just as the second case occurred. Sagawa was shot by Scorpion. Kogoro believes the motive for killing is that Scorpion's identity was unveiled on the tapes. Then, Scorpion couldn't find the ring, scavenged the entire room. Shiratori says the lifeboat is missing which means Scorpion has already escaped. Scorpion could be targeting the other egg which Scorpion will be at the Kousaka family's castle. Shiratori will accompany Natsumi to the castle.
The next day on August 24th, the luxury liner arrives at Tokyo. Meanwhile, the Detective Boys are taking a walk. Once they arrived at Agasa's house, they heard Haibara that she and Agasa are going to the castle. After that, they sneaked in Agasa's car. While Agasa is driving a car, the Detective Boys surprised him.
Shiratori and the group are going to the castle by riding two cars. In a taxi, Sergei asks Kogoro did Sagawa's ring truly belongs to Maria. Kogoro can't say yet, but Inspector Megure is having it examined. Sergei mentions that it's been said Maria was the kindest of the four daughters, and had stunning gray eyes. After the revolution in Russia, the Tsar and his family were executed, but only Maria and the prince's corpses have yet to be found.
The group finally arrived in Yokosuka Castle. The castle is in German style, resembling Neuschwanstein Castle. It's been called a perfect stage for Cinderalla. Conan wonders why is it German style and remembers that Natsumi's grandparents are from Russia. Suddenly, Agasa arrives at the castle and gave Conan a new glasses with the special upgrade that he requested. Inui is late because he said he had an errand and would meet the group. Later, Inui arrives back while carrying a bag.
When they went inside, Kogoro tells Sawabe to lock the doors to keep the children outside from entering the castle. The Detective Boys are trying to find a another entrance to look for the treasure.
The group are in the knight's armor gallery, there are pieces displayed featuring Western designs from the medieval times. Next they went to Dame's lounge room. The old mistress often spent the entire day in just in that room. Another room they went is Tsar's gallery. Inui secretly sneaks back into the lounge room and searches the treasure. When he found the vault that's hidden behind the frame, he got the lock pick from his bag and opens the vault. He found the treasure and tried to grab it but got caught with the cuff. The ceiling door opens and the swords fall from the ceiling which it has been linked with chains. It scared Inui and he thought he was going to die. The group found him and Sawabe frees Inui with the key. It is a theft repelling installation Kichi installed. There are many dangerous traps in the castle.
The group went to the study room. There are many pictures of Kichi, his family, and of the activities he enjoyed in life. Conan asks Natsumi where is her great-grandmother's photograph and Natsumi says she hasn't seen one herself. She doesn't even know who she looks like. Inui notices the picture of Rasputin. There is even G. Rasputin's signature. Ran asks her dad who is Rasputin and Kogoro believes he's known as the most evil man of the century. Inui says he was also known as Mad Monk Rasputin. He caused the downfall of the Tsar, and eventually to the ruin of the Romanov Dynasty. He was quite imperious then. After all the evil he had done, the Tsar's brother, Duke Yusoupov killed him. The corpse was found on the river, with an eye missing.
When Kogoro is smoking the cigarette, Conan sees the strange movement of the smoke. Conan asks to borrow it and says that there's a air current coming from below the floor. Conan found the Russian alphabet buttons. It is for opening the door of the basement. Sergei puts the password, "The Last Wizard of the Century" and it finally opens the door. Going down with them, Natsumi explains the origin of the password to be of her great-grandfathers reputation. Meanwhile, the "Detective Boys" have found their own way beneath the castle, and choose to go forward in the tunnels instead of waiting for the professor to get help. With Conan's group who has traveled underground by now, Conan notices a sound made by the four other children, and goes to check it out accompanied by officer Shiratori. Inui, meanwhile, sees a shadowy figure in one direction of the tunnels, and when he chases after it around a corner, he is shot by a silenced handgun held by the figure.
After the "Detective Boys" and Conan's party have grouped together, the collective party come to a massive wall in the tunnel, covered in ornate engravings and pictures. Almost immediately, Conan figures it out, telling Officer Shiratori to shine his flashlight beam exclusively at a two-headed vulture drawing's single crown. The concentrated beam of light triggers the crown like a switch, as it is made out of photometer, and a set of hidden stairs appears, leading to a chamber even further underground.
The inside of the chamber is designed like a crypt, with a small shrine surrounded on all sides by water. A massive copper coffin lies in the center of the chamber, which Natsumi opens with the key that she had found in her great-grandfather's sketches. Kogoro heaves open the lid of the coffin, revealing a corpse inside, with the second egg placed on the chest. When asked about the identity of the corpse, Natsumi supposes that it is that of her great-grandmother, who could not be buried in a regular cemetery because of her Russian roots. When opened, however, the egg is revealed to be empty. Ayumi suggests that the egg is like a Matryoshka Doll, in that it needs to be put into something, or something needs to be put in it. At this point, Officer Shiratori reveals that he had borrowed the first egg from Sonoko's father, and had it in his bag all along. The first egg is placed into the larger second egg, but nothing happens. Conan figures that the many pieces of glass inside and outside both eggs are lens, and tells everybody else to extinguish the candles lighting the chamber. Next, Officer Shiratori's flashlight is placed vertically into the center of a goblet-like holder, and the two eggs, one inside the other, on top.
The vertical beam of light shines through the combined mechanisms of both eggs, triggering a photometer switch inside them. What results is multiple beams of light being projected from the eggs and hitting the walls of the chamber, revealing pictures of Nicholas II's family and friends. Everybody realizes that the golden figurines inside the first egg aren't reading a book, but a photo album - that's why the eggs are called "MEMORIES". Amongst the pictures are one of Natsumi's great-grandfather - alongside her great-grandmother, who she had never seen before in her life. When the lights fade, Conan begins to wonder where Inui went, just as Ai drops a cryptic question - why was Rasputin not amongst the pictures in the lights? After all, he was close to Nicholas II. Just then, Conan notices a laser sight creeping up Kogoro's body, over his right eye, and manages to knock him out of the bullet's path by throwing his flashlight at him.
However, the unknown assailant is now targeting Ran, who Conan manages to push out of the way as well (and only further deepening Ran's suspicions that Conan and Shinichi are somehow connected).
However, as everybody is running in panic, Natsumi falls and drops the interconnected eggs, and the assailant scoops it up and runs out of the chamber, Conan chasing after him/her. Leaving Kogoro to take care of the rest, Officer Shiratori chases after Conan.
