Zero the Enforcer pre-story

The Melting Cake! (ケーキが溶けた! Kēki ga toketa!?) is the 898th episode of the Detective Conan anime. This episode is a pre-story for Zero the Enforcer.

Gadgets introduced





Kogoro, Ran, and Conan go to Cafe Poirot in the morning for breakfast. Kogoro barges in before the shop actually opens causing Azusa to be angry. She, however, welcomes Ran and Conan to come in as well. Azusa uses IoT (Internet of Things) to control the electric kettle to boil water sometime before they reach the cafe. As they have breakfast, an issue seems to be happening with Amuro's cake. Last night when he prepared it, it was perfect but this morning it has melted. The Detective Boys call Conan using the Detective Badge informing him of Agasa's latest invention, a drone. While the communication is taking place, the rotors of the drone suddenly start spinning and it flies and crashes into the roof causing Agasa to be disappointed. He goes inside to fix the drone. Conan witnesses the panic on the other side.

The electrician is called for fixing the refrigerator but he claims that there is nothing wrong with it. Ayumi after eating the cake runs to a nearby restaurant which sells cakes suspiciously similar to Amuro's, but taste completely different with Amuro's being more delicious. The Detective Boys claim that someone in the restaurant probably ruined Amuro's cake to make their sales bigger. Conan, drove by his own curiosity as well as the Detective Boys persuasion, installs his phone to record footage of Cafe Poirot during the night. Nothing suspicious is seen in the footage.

Azusa says that the cake only melts two out of every three days. Conan continues to capture footage and finds that the days the cake melted corresponds to a car passing by the cafe the night before, of which the reflection is seen in the windows of the cafe but the inside of the cafe can not be seen.
