Kansuke Yamato and Yui Uehara takes Kogoro, Ran, and Conan to a mansion. Uehara reveals that the mansion was owned by a rich man in the past; The man one day decided to search for five talented people and gave the five a room in the mansion until they have reached their dreams. Uehara reveals that six people, Shusaku Akashi, Aoi Kobashi, Naoki Midorikawa, Shoji Yamabuki, Takuto Momose, and Shiro Naoki, referred to each others as colors that sound alike to their names. They were called Aka (赤?, Red), Ao (青?, Blue), Midori (緑?, Green), Yamabuki (山吹?, Golden Yellow), Momoiro (桃色?, Pink), and Shiro (白?, White) respectively. Yamato reveals that the doors in the mansion swung outward and that someone used a pile of boxes filled with books to trap Akashi inside a room. They examine the room to find one wall of the room painted red and in the center of the room a white and black chair placed back to back and nailed into the ground with the white chair facing the red wall.

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the last episode of the 2000s.
  • The case draws heavy reference to Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a classic historical romance from China. In the case, Conan and Ran are aware of this reference, with Ran reciting the historical reference for the uninformed viewers. In fact, a lot of details are inspired from them:
    • The nickname of Taka'aki Morofushi is Komel, a war strategist in ancient time.
    • The dying message of Shusaku Akashi is the case of "The death scare away the living", a strategy Komel used to scare away the living Zhongda from attacking.
    • Conan's planning for the culprit to enter Naoki's apartment was inspired from "The Empty Fort", though with opposite use. In the original, The Empty Fort was to purposely reveal resources and traps while there was no actual troops protecting the base, meaning to scare the enemy away. In this case, it was to purposely reveal weakness to make the culprit think he can break into the apartment.
  • Each person's pronunciation has reference to a color.
