Detective Conan Movie Novelization




Child prodigy Hiroki Sawada is introduced by a TV program running in the background, while Hiroki himself is working on a computer. The program host explains that by the age of ten, he is already a MIT graduate school student and has developed a DNA Tracker software and is now in the final stage of his second major project, an artificial brain dubbed Noah's Ark. The program host goes on to explain that Hiroki has been under the guardianship of Thomas Schindler, owner of the software giant Schindler, Inc., since his mother died, and that he has been put under a rigorous study program and has had a somewhat deprived childhood. After turning the TV off, Hiroki finishes Noah's Ark, and sends the software through the telephone lines, which causes his computer to show the message "Noah's Ark Sailed Out", simultaneously triggering an alarm in the guardroom. The security guard calls Thomas Schindler and both try to enter Hiroki's room. When they finally break into Hiroki's room, they find that Hiroki is not in the room. Schindler finds Hiroki's shoes on the balcony; He jumped from the top of the building to his death.

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.

The image on his computer screen shows an ark sailing in water and the words "Good-bye Hiroki."

Two years later, at the Beika City Hall, Schindler, Inc. holds a demonstration of a virtual reality game system called Cocoon. Many kids, including the Detective Boys, are invited to the demonstration. However, only the kids with badges are chosen for the demonstration. Professor Agasa and Yusaku Kudo arrive at the City Hall. Agasa gives Conan Edogawa a badge and tells Conan that his mother, Yukiko Kudo, would not be there because of an alumni reunion. The rest of Detective Boys trick a few kids by exchanging badges for the Premium Golden Yaiba Cards. They all use the badges and participate in the demonstration.

In another room, Schindler kills Kashimura, one of his top employees, and Kashimura types in a dying message: the letters J, T and R.

When the demonstration begins, Hiroki's artificial intelligence system, Noah's Ark takes control of the game system Cocoon. When two of the parents try to get the children out, the parents get shocked by a sudden burst of electricity. Noah's Ark then warns the audience that if all fifty kids in the demonstration lose the game, it will kill the kids with a large electromagnetic burst.

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 if all of them fail, but as long as one child wins, then they may all go free.

The kids in the demonstration are given a choice of five stages in the game, and Conan and the Detective Boys choose the final stage, a re-creation of an 1800 London mystery. In the beginning of the game, Conan discovers that Agasa's inventions don't work. After receiving a hint from Prof.Agasa they decide to go to Sherlock Holmes for help. As they near 221B Baker Street they meet a strange accordion playing vagrant who sings a strange song, but they shrug it off. Conan and his friends arrive at 221b Baker Street, only to find that Holmes and Watson are at Dartmoor. Mistaken for the Baker Street Irregulars by Mrs Hudson, they are invited inside. Ran finds Sherlock's investigation notes on Jack the Ripper, which implies that Jack is highly likely to have a connection to Professor Moriarty. Since finding the Professor is next to impossible, the kids decide to talk to his right hand man Colonel Moran at his favorite hang-out to find out the Professor's location. After causing a brawl and losing Mitsuhiko, Ayumi and Genta, Conan forces the Colonel into a standoff by holding Moriarty's wine hostage. It is at this moment an elderly gentleman comes and announces that Professor Moriarty requests an audience with the group. After being led to another gentleman in a carriage, Conan calls out Moriarty for testing them; Moriarty was the gentleman who led them there. After explaining their situation, Moriarty reveals that he found and trained Jack the Ripper when Jack was a street urchin. The professor promises the children an opportunity to bring Jack down by posting a message in the next day's newspaper to kill someone, but refuses to name the victim-to-be, telling them they'd find out by reading the paper. The next day after reading the paper they realize the next victim is to be Irene Adler, the only woman Holmes ever loved.

    • 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, though another dubbing company has since done an English dub of Zero the Enforcer.
    • 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.
    • Hiroki Sawada is possibly modeled after Doctor Zell, a former Nazi officer and mad experimental scientist in episode 50-51 of the anime Lupin III: Part II, a source of inspiration for Detective Conan. Indeed, before death, Zell uploaded his mind into a computer and created an artificial intelligence system.
    • Thomas Schindler's limousine is a silver Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine.
    • Yusaku Kudo and Professor Agasa's limousine is dark blue Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine.
    • 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.
    • This is the first movie to use a virtual reality game as the main 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.
    • This is the first movie where Conan's gadgets are primarily absent, as in the game, they are converted to a normal accessories, rendering them useless. The next movie where Conan is unable to utilize them is The Fist of Blue Sapphire, though he gains them back later on.
    • Gin and Vodka make appearances in the introduction sequence of the movie as always, but are also featured in a cameo where Yukiko and Yusaku Kudo are disguised as the pair cornering Conan in an alley way.
    • Yukiko, aside from appearing in the introduction sequence and her in game portrayal of Irene Adler, is absent in the film itself, with Agasa explaining to Conan that she had a high school reunion, and was unable to attend, meaning that she technically hasn't appeared in the movie herselves.
    • This is the only movie where either of Shinichi's parents are directly involved with the storyline. Yusaku make a cameos appearance in The Fourteenth Target and the two appear in the introduction sequences for Countdown to Heaven and Crossroad in the Ancient Capital, but not in the movie themselves, though Yusaku is mentioned later on in Countdown to Heaven
    • The version of the main theme used in the film is a slightly modified version of the one from Countdown to Heaven and would again later be reused and modified again for Strategy Above the Depths.
