Detective Conan Movie Novelization

The Scarlet Bullet[1] is the 24th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was originally scheduled to be released in Japan on April 17, 2020, which made it the first movie to premiere in the Reiwa period, but was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It was released on April 16, 2021[2][3]. The pre-story is The Beika City Shopping Center Garbage Bin Mystery.

On February 10, 2021, a global release was announced. A video featuring multi-language movie opening in Japanese, English, Korean, German, and Chinese was also released.[4]

The movie become the first Detective Conan movie that was released in IMAX, MX4D, 4DX, and DOLBY CINEMA in Japan.





Japan is about to celebrate the world's largest sports festival, "WSG-World Sports Games", in Tokyo. In line with the opening ceremony, it is announced that the world's first "Vacuum Superconducting Linear" train, boasting a maximum speed of 1,000 km/h which combined all of Japan's technologies, will be opened to the public between Shin-Nagoya Station and Shibahama Station and established in Tokyo. As the world's attention is garnered, an incident occurs at a party venue where famous tournament sponsors are gathered, leading to an abnormal situation where top dogs of companies are kidnapped one after another. Behind the scenes are Shuichi Akai who monitors the incident, and the FBI who waits for orders from Akai.

Conan's reasoning reveals the relevance of the apocalyptic WSG kidnapping incident that occurred in Boston, USA, fifteen years ago, and that the incident was also under the jurisdiction of the FBI. Is this a coincidence? What is going to happen in Japan, where many types of people from all over the world are gathered?
