Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

Conan, Ran, and Sonoko are cleaning up Shinchi's house, and their chat goes from Sonoko complaining about doing this in summer break to Ran wondering who could have been Shinichi's first love and Sonoko speculating whether Ran was his first love or not. Almost as if on cue, an old classmate stops by to check on Shinichi's well-being, then joins the group in their cleaning: her name is Asami Uchida, she used to be the student council president of Teitan High School and she now attends a local art-centered university as a literature major.

While helping Conan and the girls with their work, Asami mentions that she'll throw her birthday party in a nearby bungalow that she and her friends rented specially for the event. She had come to personally invite Shinichi, however, and drops hints about a love confession that he might have given her four years ago. Sonoko mentions rumors about a younger student stalking Asami in these days, and Ran concludes that Asami was Shinichi's first love. Sonoko manages to rope Asami into inviting them as well, and Kogoro agrees to go there, once he learns one of the people has been a three time beauty contest winner.

The party starts normally, with the additional perk that it's also a celebration for Asami winning a literary prize, a tennis tournament and a beauty contest, and everyone seems to have quite a good time. A pretty girl named Tomoko Hayasaka teases the handsome Manabu Sawai about being a playboy, but he ignores it and focuses on complimenting Kogoro for having a way with words. Around the same time the older students Yoshinobu Morimoto, Chika Miyazaki and Shibahisa Noguchi mention Asami's accomplishments: she defeated Morimoto in the literary contest, Chika was just a runner-up for the beauty one that she won, and she was a part of the couple that won a mixed tennis tournament that Noguchi participated in as well.

In the meantime, Ran and Asami are baking Asami's trademark recipe: lemon pie. Asami forgot to bring the one she already baked. The pie itself looks messy since Ran had never baked any pies, but it actually tastes good; Asami says what matters is what's on the inside, rather than how it looks.

The party goes on well, and the bungalow's fax machine gets a fax from one of Asami's professors, wishing her a happy birthday. Asami herself, however, is feeling like crap all of a sudden so she's taking a nap. Sawai and mentions a nearby karaoke parlor where they already booked a room, saying they should let Asami sleep and go there for a while...

As everyone has fun, Sonoko notices Ran is rather mopey instead. She mentions how Asami is sweet, gorgeous, smart, once was the manager of the school's soccer club that Shinichi was a member of, and looks like she's super perfect, so she guesses that Shinichi admires Asami quite a bit and correctly deduced that Ran is feeling inferior to her. Ran mentions that Asami said Shinichi likes lemon pie a lot and offered to teach her (Ran) the recipe, and confirms that she feels like she can't compare to Asami. Sonoko tries to cheer her up by saying Asami is herself and so is Ran, so she shouldn't bring herself down.

Around 3 AM, the group starts getting ready to return to the rented bungalow nevermind one or two problems: like Noguchi being drunk, Sawai taking too much time to bring cigarettes or Kogoro being for too long in the restroom. They decide to go back and then go to bed so they can clean up in the morning, but then they look through the window and the bungalow is on fire. Kogoro and Sawai immediately look for the keys to the rental car they have handy, so they can go there and rescue her...

When the group arrives, the bungalow's completely surrounded by fire - so much that it almost pours from the windows and even the doors. Ran, who was praying for Asami's safety in their way there, sees Chika trying to move a nearby motorcycle and has an idea: she puts on the moto's driving helmet, goes inside followed by Conan, kicks the door to the nearby open and rescues Asami.


Attempted Suicide?

EP100-101 Case.jpg

Location: Bungalow
Victim: Asami Uchida
Age: 18 years old
Cause: Burnt alive
Suspects: Manabu Sawai, Tomoko Hayasaka, Shibahisa Noguchi, Chika Miyazaki, and Yoshinobu Morimoto
Ran and Conan find Asami lying on the floor of the living room with no burn marks, which means she is safe and sound. But this is odd, since when the group left, she was lying on a couch. Is this all an accident, did Asami either try to commit suicide or call the others's attention via faking a life-or-death incident, or is something sinister in the works?

Part 2[edit]

Ran passes out almost immediately after rescuing Asami, both from the smoke inhalation and the huge effort. She wakes up in the nearby hospital and is fine, but Asami is still unconscious. She tells Sonoko that the helmet idea came from Conan, who gave it to her so she'd have extra protection, and mentions that he did something incredible.

Conan, Kogoro and the birthday guests are back to what remains of the bungalow and gather information. The fire began at 2:50 AM, at the living room, and was apparently caused by the b-day people's carelessness: Asami's birthday cake was left with its candles burning, they fell on the floor and the gift-wrapping papers, which triggered the fire itself and spreads it all around. Kogoro doesn't really believe this, and he wonders if Asami herself set the fire.

At the hospital, Sonoko tells Ran that when she was brought to the hospital, Asami was calling out to Shinichi and apologizing to him in whispers. They decide to go get some drinks and take a break, unaware of how Asami awakens once they leave.

Conan hears what Kogoro says and is troubled by several details. He's sure that Asami was lying on the couch when they left, but she was on the floor when he and Ran found her; additionally, several furniture pieces were in different spots. He wonders if Morimoto, who had the key to the house, set the place on fire, but decides against it since the fire began at 2:50 AM so he couldn't have had enough time and the window was open so the key wasn't needed. He also wonders about Noguchi (he had the car keys) and Chika (who has a bike), since there was some time when everyone was out of the karaoke parlor, but decides against it too: he couldn't have enough time, and her bike was already parked. Also, the policemen haven't found any specific things that could have been used to set the fire from a distance...

Conan wonders if Asami did truly set the fire, whether to kill herself or get attention. One of the firemen tells Conan not to stay too close to the burned remains and hands him two sheets of paper, apparently coming from the fax machine. Then Conan checks on the sheets and realizes some details. This adds up to what one of Asami's friends said, and the placement of the furniture around Asami.

Ran and Sonoko are still in the hospital, commenting how Asami switched from the tennis to the soccer club despite her natural tennis talent. Then they find out that Asami has disappeared. Around the same time, Conan snoops around the nearby store and finds out that Tomoko, Sawai and the already drunk Noguchi were around, and one of them may have something to do with the incident.

People[edit]

Resolution[edit]

Manga to anime changes[edit]

  • In the anime, when Sawai admits that he didn't think the fire would expand as quick as it did, Conan gets so angry that through Kogoro, he calls him on how selfish he has been: had the group been late for less than two minutes, Asami would have burned or asphyxiated to death, and Sawai never thought of it since he was that wrapped in his own feelings. He adds that if Sawai actually wanted to be loved by Asami, he should've simply stuck to become an honorable guy that she would've admired and come to love.
  • Noguchi's first name in the anime is Shibahisa, while in the manga it's Shigehisa.
  • In the anime, the professor who sent the fax to Asami was named Masao Takamura, whereas in the manga, the professor was called Hideo Takamura.
