* 1 Hour Special

The Scarlet School Trip (紅の修学旅行 Kurenai no Shūgakuryokō?) is the 927th and the 928th episode of the Detective Conan anime. They are composed of two 45 minutes special episodes and have been co-produced with Gosho Aoyama's supervision. It introduces the first canonical performance of Fumimaro Ayanokoji and his pet chipmunk, and is set in Kyoto, where the animation team went to recreate the most realistically possible all the landmarks, including Kiyomizu Butai. There were also special guests from Yomiuri TV, which were introduced as voice actors.





Shinichi eventually manages to take part to the Kyoto trip with Ran and their friends, thanks to the series of antidotes Haibara gave Conan. Each time Conan takes an antidote, he has to wait 8 hours after the back shrinking before taking another one. Shinichi and Ran secretly hope that Ran will give an answer to Shinichi's love declaration back in London. On the Kiyomizu-Dera, Shinichi meets Keiko, an actress and old friend of his mother, who stays in the same hotel as Shinichi and his class, with some university friends with which she shot a blockbuster revolving around a tengu and other monsters. She asks Shinichi to help her to decipher a mysterious code written and sent by their late friend Michio Dekuri, who committed suicide some time ago. The code was received by Nishiki, the movie's screenwriter, along with red aralia leaves, typical from Kyoto. Shinichi tries to solve it, while enjoying Kyoto with his friends, in particular Masumi, who knows Conan is Shinichi but still keeps it a secret. The group of friends visit Kyoto's temples and their gruesome crimson ceilings, that were at first the temple's floors spilled with the blood of samurais who committed mass suicide/seppuku and left many footprints, it was so astounding that the floors were kept and turned into ceilings.

Bright Red Arc[edit]


EP927 Case1.png

Location: GION Hotel
Victim: Taro Nishiki
Age: 38 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound
Suspects: Mineto Mayama, Shinya Ihaya, Keiko Kurachi, and Riki Agata
After Nishiki meets with the others to show the riddle, he dies less than an hour later and is seen stabbed dead on the floor. Around him are scattered sheets of the screenplay, labels and a new riddle. On his forehead have been made two bumps and on the ceiling was a blood pond (in fact red paint painted beforehand except for a few droplets of real blood) and footsteps leading to the exterior of the room as if it was a tengu's doing.
Attempted murder

EP927 Case2.png

Location: GION Hotel
Victim: Riki Agata
Age: 37 years old
Attack Types: Stabbing
Suspects: Mineto Mayama, Shinya Ihaya, and Keiko Kurachi
Just and hour after Nishiki's murder, Agata is seen screaming in his room which alerts everyone. They gather at the door and get it unlocked by the bellhop before seeing inside Agata on the floor with two bumps on his head and screaming for help at a tengu on the ceiling. He then throws his ashtray at it before it explodes and vanished. The next day, Agata slowly recovered from the injury and there wasn't any new riddle.

EP927 Case3.png

Location: Isogiyama Restaurant front porch
Victim: Shinya Ihaya
Age: 37 years old
Cause of death: Slit wound on the throat
Suspects: Mineto Mayama, Keiko Kurachi, and Riki Agata
After a hord of people disguised as tengus disturb the group (Shinichi, Nakamichi, Ran, Sonoko, Momiji and Masumi), they fight them before finding out that someone on a website was paying them 100 thousand Yen. As they feared it was the culprit's actions to distract them, they head back to the restaurant and find out it was too late: Ihaya was dead, lying upside-down on the Inuyarai where there were the same footprints as in Nishiki's room.

Crimson Love Arc[edit]

Suicide (Past)
Location: Kiyomizu Butai
Victim: Michio Dekuri
Time: 3-4 days ago
Cause of death: Falling
A few days before the murder spree in Kyoto, one of the previous members of the filming team who had wrote the first version of the story (in manga) killed himself by throwing himself from the top of the Kiyomizu dera shrine after he thought he was forgotten by the others (Mayama, Agata, Nishiki, and Ihaya) since they didn't put his name in the credits or so what he thought.


  • Resolution[edit]


    • The OS on the laptop Yusaku and Yukiko use is Windows 10.
    • This case was initially planned to be set in Singapore for the manga, but was later changed to Kyoto. The Singapore setting was then recycled for The Fist of Blue Sapphire.
    • The two episodes were aired as a one hour and a half movie on January 10, 2019, at the Tokyo Shiodome cinema, two days before the broadcast of the second part. Every staff member who worked on the two episodes were invited, along with some pre-selected fans who had the opportunity to ask questions to the staff.
    • In Thailand, just like the release of Episode One TV special. The episodes were first released as a movie on January 3, 2021 in selected theaters.
    • Along with Conan and Ebizo's Kabuki Jūhachiban Mystery, this is the second one hour and half special episode, transmitted in two parts.
    • The anime staff went to Kyoto to take reference material (photos, videos, etc.) for the two episodes special in the last months preceding the creation of the special.
    • Shinichi and Nakamichi's room is 927, just like the episode that makes the first part of the case.
    • Mai Kuraki's manager seen in the episode isn't the real manager, since the real one is a man named Toshinori Masuda and the president of Being.
    • Gosho Aoyama worked as key animator for episode 928.
    • The taxi taken by Mineto Mayama to Kiyomizu Dera is the same as in Conan Kidnapped (Koba Taxi car 567) but with a different license plate: 東山 500, こ 58-84 (Higashiyama 500, Ko 58-84).
    • Greg Erwin, a real life author-interpret and singer makes a appearance as himself as he impersonates a Los Angeles news announcer with a character design similar to his look. He was born in the United States but lives in Japan and speaks perfect Japanese.
    • Restaurant Danny's Dining reappears at the end of episode 928.
    • Naomoto Awards are named after the famous japanese Naoki literary awards.
    • The monkeys from the timestamp 9:33 of The Scarlet School Trip (Bright Red Arc) is the famous three monkeys that represents see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil.

    Manga to anime changes[edit]

    • The scene with Mai Kuraki and her manager is only seen in the anime, although the quote about the double couple was proposed by Gosho Aoyama.
    • The part when Ran asks Keiko Kurachi if she has won the Macademy Awards is skipped in the anime.
