Case[edit]

Situation[edit]

Miwako Sato reminisces about the bomber case three years ago. Three years ago, a bomber sent a fax to the Tokyo Metropolitan Police containing the location of a bomb in the form of a riddle. Jinpei Matsuda discovers the bomb's location and realizes that the bomb contains a clue to an even larger bomb and that the clue is only revealed during the last three seconds before detonation; Matsuda sacrifices his life and allowed the police to locate the second bomb. In the present time, the bomber returns and sends a fax to the Police station.

Car Bombing - Attempted Murder

EP304d Case.jpg

Location: Shiratori's police car
Victim: Ninzaburo Shiratori
Time: January 6th
Injury: Explosion
Suspects: Partner of bomber from prior case
Shiratori managed to escape his Lexus LS400 before he caught the brunt of the blast. He sustained major injury.

The Detective Boys along with Wataru Takagi and Sato attempt to decrypt the riddle and locate the bomb. The riddle reads "I'm a fast pitching, hard-hitting major leaguer. Now the extra innings have begun. The games begin at noon tomorrow and end at 3 PM. Even if you prepare a good stopper, it won't help you. I'll turn it around in the end".

Sato explains to Conan that years ago the city was blackmailed by the bomber and his partner. The money was paid, but later they got a phone call from one of the bomber who got misinformed by a recap of the new and thought that the bomb was still on. The police decided to use the opportunity to capture the bomber, but instead it resulted in his death. His partner, who escape, must have thought that the police aired false information on the news to lured them into a trap and is now seeking revenge.

Manga to anime changes[edit]

  • In the manga version, not much is known about the bombing case that happened 7 years ago. Kenji Hagiwara also doesn't receive any specific character design like he does in the anime version, as he is only mentioned by name.
  • In the manga, Takagi doesn't slap Sato to calm her down when she tries to shoot the bomber.

Trivia[edit]

  • Gosho Aoyama, in an interview, indicated this was one of his favorite case.
  • An error occurred in the anime, in the last scene where Sato delete the last message from Matsuda. The date of the message was November 7th, even though an earlier scene show the date was January 6th.
  • The bomber criminal vehicle is White 1992 Toyota Corolla Van DX [E100].
  • Ran's cellphone was stepped on and broke by one of her kidnappers in The Smash of Determination and Love, but Shinichi gives her a new one in the beginning.
