Detective Conan Movie Novelization




A TV program introduces Hiroki Sawada, a ten-year old computer prodigy. The reporter explains that Hiroki is already in graduate school at MIT. He has developed a DNA-tracker software and is now about to complete his second major project, an artificial mind called Noah's Ark. Since Hiroki's mother died, he has been looked after by Thomas Schindler, CEO of Schindler Inc., an influential software company. Schindler recognised Hiroki's enormous talent and encouraged him to develop it further, putting him under a rigorous study program with little free time or time to be a child.

Hiroki, who has been watching the program about himself, turns his TV off and goes back to his computer, putting the finishing touches on Noah's Ark. Once he is satisfied, he sends the artificial intelligence on his way and his computer shows the message "Noah's Ark sailed away", which also triggers an alarm in the building he is working in. A security guard notices the alarm and calls Thomas Schindler. Together, they try to enter Hiroki's room. When they finally manage to open the door, Hiroki is nowhere to be found. Dismayed, Schindler sees Hiroki's shoes on the balcony and has to conclude the inevitable - Hiroki committed suicide by jumping off the balcony.

Suicide (Past)

Movie6 Case.jpg

Location: Schindler Building, Massachusetts, USA
Victim: Hiroki Sawada
Age: 10 years old
Time: Two years ago
Cause of death: Falling
With too much pressure on him, Hiroki decides to commit suicide since it wasn't the childhood he wanted before jumping from the top of the building.

His computer screen shows a sailing boat (Noah's Ark) on water and a message that reads: "Goodbye from Hiroki".

Two years later, Schindler Inc. presents its newest product at Beika City hall, a virtual reality game system called Cocoon. Many children attend the presentation, hoping they are among the lucky ones who are allowed to test Cocoon for the first time. To be included among the first players, the children have to obtain a special badge that was quite expensive. Conan, Ayumi, Genta, Ai and Mitsuhiko watch the crowd sadly, realising none of them could afford to pay for it, when Professor Agasa and Yusaku Kudo join them. Agasa hands Conan a badge and says it was paid for for his parents and that his mother Yukiko could not join them because she has a class reunion.

The other Detective Boys trade Golden Kamen Yaiba Cards with some other children in exchange for a Cocoon badge. So, all five of them end up being called up for the game tests.

Meanwhile, CEO Schindler gets into an argument with Tadaaki Kashimura, one of his top programmers, in the basement of City Hall. Schindler stabs Kashimura fatally then use a CD data theft and leaves. In his dying moments, Kashimura dips his finger into his own blood and leaves a message for the police. He presses the letters "J", "T" and "R" on the keyboard before he sinks back dead.


Movie6 Case1.jpg

Location: Beika City Hall - Basement (Program control room)
Victim: Tadaaki Kashimura
Age: 39 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound in heart
Culprit: Thomas Schindler
Kashimura presses the "J","T" & "R" keyboard keys with a bloody finger, leaving a dying message.

Conan finds the body and decides to actually join the Cocoon test as well, recognising that there might be a clue to the murderer's identity in the game. Yusaku, who was consulted by Kashimura when they developed the game, realises "JTR" has to mean "Jack the Ripper".

Murders (Past)


Location: Whitechapel district, London
Victims: Emma Elizabeth Smith (Incertae), Martha Tabram, Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Eddowes, Mary Jane Kelly, Rose Mylett (Incertae), Alice McKenzie, Unidentified Woman (Incertae) and Frances Coles
Age: 45 years old, 39 years old, 43 years old, 47 years old, 44 years old, 46 years old, 25 years old, 29 years old, 40 years old, 30-40 years old and 25 years old
Cause of death: Stab wounds, Slash wounds, and throat slits
Culprit: Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper was a well known serial killer in London who killed at least 7 people in Whitechapel district. He was never identified.

Among great interest from the audience, Cocoon is turned on and the children are instructed to sit into special chairs fitted with virtual reality glasses. Thomas Schindler explains that participants in Cocoon are put into a trance-like state to fully immerse themselves in the game. Suddenly, the system comes alive and a computer-generated voice explains that it is "Noah's ark" and has taken control of the program to "reset Japan". Most of the children participating in the game come from wealthy and influential families and Noah's Ark explains that it is challenging that status quo. Two parents try to get their children out of the chairs but a sudden burst of electricity shocks them as they try to open the cover of the seats. Noah's Ark further explains that it has modified the virtual games so they are more challenging and the children have to play them. If all children fail, the artificial intelligence will kill them with an electromagnetic burst (EMP), but they are allowed to leave if one child wins their game.

Hostage taking


Location: Beika City Hall
Victims: The fifty kids participating in the Cocoon demonstration
Age: 5-17 years old
Weapon: Locking into the Cocoons
Culprit: Noah's Ark Artificial Intelligence
The children are locked into the Cocoons and the adults are threatened so that they cannot open them. The children must play the virtual reality games which have been modified so they are more difficult. Noah's Ark will kill all fifty kids with an electromagnetic burst (shock waves) if all of them fail, but as long as one child wins their respective game, everyone will be freed.

The participants are told they can chose between five different levels of the game.

Conan, Ran and the Detective Boys choose level 5, a mystery set in 19th century London. The game starts and Conan discovers he can't use Agasa's inventions. Professor Agasa is able to communicate with Conan and sends him a hint which makes Conan realise that Sherlock Holmes is the "supporting character" they have to find. Near 221 B Baker Street a vagrant plays the accordion and sings an odd song. The children don't pay him any attention.

Mrs. Hudson mistakes the children for the Baker Street Irregulars and invites them into 221 B Baker Street, explaining that Holmes and Watson left for Dartmoor a day earlier. Ran has a look through Holmes' notes and realises he is investigating Jack the Ripper, which, as Conan immediately figures out, means the serial killer must be connected to Professor Moriarty.

Finding the criminal mastermind is next to impossible so Conan tells everyone they will have to seek out his right-hand man Colonel Sebastian Moran. Luckily, Colonel Moran spends his afternoons at one and the same gentlemen's club so they know where to go. At the club, they end up in a brawl and Ayumi, Genta and Mitsuhiko have to quit the game. Conan forces the colonel into a stand-off, but before he can reply, an elderly man enters the room and tells Conan that Professor Moriarty has sent for them.

A carriage driver leads them to a carriage and tells them it will bring everyone to Moriarty. Conan exposes the driver's identity- it is nobody other than Professor Moriarty himself. Moriarty reveals that he feels responsible for Jack the Ripper's crimes. He took the boy in when he was living on the streets and Jack the Ripper learned a lot of the tricks of the trade from the master criminal. Professor Moriarty wants to play a part in bringing Jack the Ripper down and announces he will post a message to Jack in the following day's newspapers, requesting him to kill someone. He refuses to name the newest target, saying the children will figure it out once they read his message.

Moriarty keeps his promise and, reading through the message, Conan deduces that Moriarty has put a prize on the head of Irene Adler, a famous actress and, famously, the only woman Sherlock Holmes ever respected.

Attempted Murder (Virtual Reality)


Location: Royal Opera House, London
Victim: Irene Adler character
Cause of death: Falling debris
Culprit: Jack the Ripper
The stage Irene was on collapsed but Shinya and Akira saved her.


  • Game characters

  • Resolution


    • This is the last Detective Conan movie to be made using traditional animation.
    • Currently, this is the final movie to be dubbed in english by Funimation Entertainment. No new movies have been announced thus far, although Bangzoom!, another dubbing company, has since done an English dub of Zero the Enforcer, The Crimson Love Letter, The Darkest Nightmare, The Fist of Blue Sapphire, and Sunflowers of Inferno.
    • This movie is notable for having a screenplay written by a famous Japanese screenwriter and mystery novelist Hisashi Nozawa. Kazunari Kochi had written all previous movies and most of the later movies up until Dimensional Sniper.
    • Thomas Schindler's limousine is a silver Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine.
    • Yusaku Kudo and Professor Agasa's limousine is dark blue Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine.
    • The five virtual reality (VR) games are Vikings, Paris-Dakar Rally, Colosseum, Solomon's Treasure, and Old Time London.
    • The date in London is declared to be September 30, 1888 which is a Sunday, yet Moriarty says that the following day is to be Sunday.
    • Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are said to be away on business at Dartmoor in reference to The Hound of the Baskervilles case, however this case did not take place until a year later in 1889.
    • Noah's Ark may be a reference to HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey, or Ultron from Marvel Comics, who is shown as backing himself up and traveling through the internet to create chaos. It also shares settings with the popular sci-fi horror manga and anime franchise "Gantz" as the cocoon gaming pods are similar to the black orb that is Gantz. Gantz forces people to play against their will for their own survival in it's own sick twisted almost video-game like setting.
    • Conan plays Pac-Man in the last scene.
    • The gun picked up by Genta at Sherlock Holmes' house is a Tranter 54-bore self-cocking revolver.
    • Even though the children are unaware that the parents can hear their voices in the game, Haibara did call Conan, "Kudo-kun", during her game over, and no one said anything about it at all. This is also the first time that a movie only, one-time-only character will discover that Conan Edogawa is Shinichi Kudo.
