Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

The Detective Boys attend an animal show starring a white lion named Leon. Outside, a man named James Black, is mistaken by reporters for Randy Hawk, a rich man who sponsors zoos and animal shows. The Detective Boys lead him out of the crowd of reporters by pretending he is their English teacher after Conan realizes that his accent is British by the way James says "can." Professor Agasa reveals that Randy Hawk has a Southern accent. In return for their help, James offers to treat them to lunch and leaves to get his car only to be mistaken for Hawks and kidnapped for ransom.

Kidnapping

Ep258-259 Case.png

Location: Street
Hostage: James Black
Culprits: Three fake police officers
When James Black came to get his car, two fake police officers confront James Black and claim that the vehicle was reported stolen. When they order James to get in their police car, James tells them that he has to inform his friends about it but suddenly they kidnap him.

Growing concerned, the Detective Boys search for James. Their investigation leads them to believe he was kidnapped. They find James' strap from the animal show in an alley way and discover blood on the letters P, &, A on the strap.

Part 2[edit]

Ayumi notices that James Black still has her Detective Badge, allowing Conan to trace the signal and have Sato set up a road block intercepting the vehicle. The kidnappers manage to elude the road block since their vehicle is disguised as a police car.

Resolution[edit]

Manga to anime changes[edit]

  • The animal show is a bit longer in the anime with it starting of with a clown, bear, elephants and horses. Also, the manga starts with showing the exterior of the building, while the anime doesn't.
  • The anime extends the scene where the kids going by as James Black is kidnapped as they observe the event.

Remastered version[edit]

  • A remastered version of this case was aired on April 5, 2014 (Part 1) and April 12, 2014 (Part 2).

Trivia[edit]

  • James Black refers to Conan as "Cool Guy" which is what Vermouth called him. Unlike Jodie Saintemillion, she refers to Conan as "Cool Kid".
  • This is the second time that Conan encounters Shuichi Akai after the bus hijacking case.
  • The fake police car is a 1989 Nissan Skyline Keisatsu [R32].
  • The six police cars that followed the fake police car are a 2001 Daihatsu Mira [L700S] (Yumi's car), a 1991 Toyota Crown [S140] (white & gray police cars), and two Nissan Skylines [R32].
