Munch's Missing Scream (消えたムンクの叫び Kieta Munku no Sakebi) is the 774th episode of the Detective Conan anime. This episode is a pre-story for Sunflowers of Inferno.
Ran and Conan accompany Jirokichi Suzuki to Narita Airport to wait for the arrival of Edward Munch's Anxiety and Despair. These two paintings were checked to have no defects, so they were packed and transferred to Suzuki Art Museum by a truck. The three of them get in a car and follow the truck.
Meanwhile, Munch's Scream arrived at Haneda Airport, and after it was checked to have no problems, it was sent to the museum by another truck. However, Hiroshi Numajiri tells Jirokichi that the truck carrying 'Scream' drove off course and disappeared without leaving traces.
