Case

Situation

At Teitan Elementary School, Genta and Mitsuhiko see a student showing off because he owns a beetle and become jealous. At Agasa's house, Genta and Mitsuhiko tell Agasa about getting the rhinoceros beetle and Agasa knows a place to get those. Agasa's old friend lives in Kofu, Yamanashi Prefecture, so Conan, Haibara, Agasa, and the Detective Boys go on a trip.

When they arrive, they meet Agasa's old friend named Ryutarou Namatame. Later, Genta is thirsty so they all go to the shop called "Michi no eki" where they sell food and drinks. Namatame find a guy named Kei Yabe who's eating ramen while getting little upset about Yabe telling Namatame a lie that he's at playing pachinko. Yabe tells Namatame that it's not what it looks like.

Genta and Mitsuhiko find the bug cages filled with all kinds of beetles and they are impressed about it until suddenly, the man named Shuhei Ikeda tell Genta and Mitsuhiko not to touch it. He tells them that the Tocoro Department is coming to retrieve them. Namatame tells Ikeda that the kids want to look at them and Ikeda doesn't have to make a big fuss about it. After that, Namatame tells the Detective Boys when Ikeda was a child, he was very stingy.

At Namatame's house, the Detective Boys are having watermelon for snack. They have made a plan to go into the forest and catch some beetles.

In the forest, Conan puts slices of stinky bananas mixed with sake into the small bags each Detective Boy carries and ties the bags to the branches of the tree so later the beetles will be attracted to it at night.

When Conan, Haibara, and the Detective Boys find the truck, Genta looks inside and Yabe just appears from under the truck. Yabe angrily asks Genta what he's looking at. Genta didn't do anything wrong so Yabe tells the kids to go away.

That night at Namatame's house, Namatame and Agasa are having a little conversation about Agasa's inventions. At precisely 10:00 pm, the Detective Boys are going back to the forest where they made baits to attract the beetles. Namatame warns the kids that there could be snakes in the forest so Agasa will go with them.

In the forest, they are lot of beetles on the bags attached to the tree branches, and the Detective Boys are very happy catching them. Going back to the house, they spot Ikeda walking on the streets moaning about Namatame.

When Conan, Haibara, Agasa, and the Detective Boys arrive at Namatame's house, they find Namatame lying on the floor, injured.

Robbery

EP663 Case2.jpg

Location: Namatame's house
Suspects: Kei Yabe and Shuhei Ikeda
Someone stole the Buddha statue.

Haibara doesn't have a signal range on her cellphone so she goes outside to look for one. Conan finds a little amount of hair on Namatame's back and wonders what did Namatame mean by "Miyama stag beetle".

Namatame is taken to the hospital while unconscious. The police arrive, and the investigation begins. Conan and the Detective Boys report everything they've seen, and also the Buddha statue that goes missing. The police mention about the missing Buddha statue case that has occurred at Kenkan Temple. Conan gives a little amount of hair he found on Namatame to the police so they can give it to the forensics to exam it. Agasa is still wondering what did Namatame mean "Miyama stag beetle", because, of course, the culprit can't be the beetle. Haibara mentions that she and the Detective Boys saw Ikeda while walking in the forest. Genta now knows that he has seen the beetles at Michi no eki.

The police finds Ikeda and they want him for questioning. The police ask Ikeda where he was at 12:00 am. Mitsuhiko says that he was walking on the streets angrily saying, "That Ryutarou! I can't let my guard down!" The reason why Ikeda was saying that is because when he went watering the rice garden, the water was turned off. The only one who did that was Namatame. That's why he wanted to teach him a lesson when he would see him again. He says that he would haver never tried to kill Namatame. Conan asks Ikeda about the Buddha statue. Ikeda remembers there was a dirty one and he has a clue. He mentions about Kei Yabe who had lots of tools in his truck when being very sneaky. That made Ikeda suspicious. Genta remembers Yabe is wearing a Miyama stag beetle shirt.

The police visit Yabe because they want him for questioning. They ask Yabe where he was at 12:00 am. Yabe says he was at home, alone. Ikeda calls Yabe a liar because when Ikeda was watering the rice field and when he was on his way to his home, he visited Yabe's house and his truck wasn't there. The police asks Yabe if he did enter Namatame's house, hurt him, and steal the Buddha statue. Yabe denies it. Conan asks Officer Iwanaga about what the little amount of hair was and Officer Iwanaga says it was a dog's hair.

Conan, Haibara, and Agasa went back to Michi no eki to find some clues. Conan asked anybody if they remember Conan and the group visiting to Michi no eki. Nobody can't remembered except one person who sells plants. The plant owner remembered they were some couples buying the potted flower. The plant owner showed the potted flower to Conan and he finally solved the whole mystery.
