Situation[edit]

Professor Agasa takes the Detective Boys camping. It is a beautiful day and they enjoy a view of Mt. Fuji as well as the newly built Nishitamashi Twin Towers, the now tallest buildings in Japan. Mitsuhiko asks Agasa if they can have a look at the towers on their way back and Agasa agrees. They set up camp and Agasa and Ai prepare rice and curry for everyone. Genta chastises Mitsuhiko for not finishing his rice, saying "there will be consequences from the gods, that's what my parents always say".

At night, everyone sleeps soundly in their tents when Genta wakes up because he has to go to the bathroom. On his way back, he spots Ai in a phone booth. He doesn't think there is anything suspicious about it and runs back to the tent because he feels cold. Ai talks to an unknown person on the phone and says she will go to the Twin Towers and "he" will join her as well.

Somewhere else, at the same time, Gin and Vodka finish a phone call in their Porsche 356 A, though it isn't clear if they were talking to Ai. Gin says they are going to the Nishitamashi towers the following day.

In the afternoon, the Detective Boys and Agasa return to Tokyo. Genta complains that his seatbelt is a bit tight and Mitsuhiko replies that that isn't any surprise, after all Genta ate five bowls of rice at breakfast. To pass the time, Mitsuhiko suggests playing the 30 seconds-game. Players have to count down to 30 seconds without looking at a timer and whoever is closest, wins. Ai and Agasa sit the game out. Mitsuhiko goes first and gets 40 seconds, Conan does a bit better, stopping at 27 seconds, Genta gets all the way up to 59 seconds and Ayumi manages a perfect 30 seconds.

Genta asks Ai who she was talking to on the phone the previous night and Ai replies that he must have imagined that.

They park in front of the towers, where, to their great surprise, Sonoko, Ran and Kogoro join them, having taken a taxi. Everyone decides to go to the towers together and Kogoro explains that he was invited by the owner of the building, his old college friend Mio Tokiwa.

Chinami Sakaguchi, Mio's secretary, greets her guests in front of the towers and explains she is going to take them on a tour of the buildings. She says the Tokiwa Corporation uses all of the floors above the 31st floor and that she will first take them to the Tokiwa showroom on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Mitsuhiko tells Ayumi that Tokiwa specialises in software but deals with everything concerning computers. Yoshiaki Hara, an executive and programmer for Tokiwa, meets them in front of the showroom and presents his newest invention - a machine that can predict what someone will look like in ten years. Ayumi and Agasa try it out first. Agasa looks exactly the same but everyone is stunned by Ayumi's pretty appearance. Genta and Mitsuhiko try the machine out next and aren't sure what to make of their appearance as 17-year olds. Sonoko and Ran decide to give it a go. Sonoko is disappointed, declaring she looks old, but Ran, Kogoro - and quite obviously Conan, who tries to remain inconspicuous - are impressed by Ran's photo, Kogoro says she reminds him of Eri. Mitsuhiko and Ayumi wonder about Conan's strange reaction.

Conan and Ai refuse to participate for obvious reasons, fearing they will be exposed by the machine. Kogoro forces Conan to sit down and have his photo taken and Mitsuhiko and Genta pressure Ai to sit down as well. The machine takes a photo of them but then shows an error message, keeping Conan and Ai safe.

Sawaguchi's phone rings and she tells her guests to follow her to the 75th floor where everything is being prepared for the grand opening party of the towers. As they go to the elevator, Sawaguchi accidentally treads on Kogoro's toes and apologises, embarassed. Hara jokes it isn't a surprise that Sawaguchi is clumsy, she was born in the Chinese year of the Boar after all.

Sawaguchi gets everyone into the VIP elevator which instantly accesses any floor of the building. She explains that the VIP elevator can only be entered on this floor and the 66th floor where there is a concert hall. Ayumi and Mitsuhiko admire the view as the elevator takes them up and say it feels like going straight to heaven.

The reception room on the 75th floor is in a complete mess while everything is being set up for the party. Mio Tokiwa comes to join her guests as they get out of the elevator and introduces them to some other VIP guests: Hosui Kisaragi, a painter who specialises in the traditional Japanese ways of painting, Iwamatsu Oki, a council member in Nishitamashi who supported the building of the towers and Hidehiko Kazama, the architect who designed the buildings. Kazama explains that he studied under Teiji Moriya, which instantly alarms Conan and Kogoro but Kazama assures them that he doesn't plan on blowing his creations up at all. Conan points out Moriya wouldn't have approved of the towers because they are assymetrical. Kazama says this was intentional. One side of the tower they are in right now offers a perfect view of Mount Fuji, on the other side you can see tower B which is a commercial building with a hotel on the top floors. The hotel has a rooftop pool with a retractable roof.

Oki, who is already quite drunk, asks Mio if he can't spend the night in the hotel and she arranges for him to stay in a suite on the 67th floor on tower B. Oki thanks her and says he wants to take her out for dinner, before noticing Mio's unusual brooch. She replies she got it as a gift.

Kisaragi abruptly decides he has to leave. Kazama explains that the painter feels insulted by the way Mio treats his art. She buys his paintings and sells them for a profit without appreciating him as an artist. Hara hands chocolates to Ayumi, Genta and Mitsuhiko and invites them to his house to test a new game he created. He tells the Detective Boys to visit him the following Sunday. Ai decides to leave and Mitsuhiko approaches Ran in private and says he needs Ran's help. Ayumi also asks to speak to Ran in private. in the meantime, Sonoko still studies her photo when Ai walks past, wondering if she should get a perm.

Two Tokiwa employees get out of the VIP elevator and discuss a "luxury car" that just parked in front of the towers. They say it is a Porsche 356A which alarms Conan immensely. He asks the employees to describe the car to him and is shocked when their descriptions match the car used by Gin. Conan hurries to the elevator and keeps an eye on the car as he goes down. The Porsche drives off as soon as he gets out of the building.

The next day Mitsuhiko meets up with Ran at a fast food restaurant and asks for Ran's help. He says he has a crush on Ayumi but it is obvious that Ayumi prefers Conan. He is also confused because he feels like he is developing feelings for Ai and wonders if he's a bad person for liking two girls. Ran says there is no need for him to be ashamed and that he should treasure those feelings but stay friends with both girls.

Later, Ayumi meets Ran at a donut shop and confesses that she has a crush on Conan. She worries Conan has a crush on Ran as well. Ran doesn't believe that but Ayumi insists, saying she watched Conan and "female intuition" told her Conan has feelings for Ran. Ran is amused how serious the children take all of this.

That same night, Ran calls Shinichi and they discuss Conan having feelings for her. Shinichi laughs Ran's suggestion off.

Meanwhile, an intruder breaks into Oki's room in the hotel on the 67th floor of tower B, pulls out a knife, backs Oki into a corner and fatally stabs the politician with his knife before he escapes.

Murder

Movie5 Case1.jpg

Location: 67th floor suite of the Twin Tower
Victim: Iwamatsu Oki
Age: 55 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound
Suspects: Chinami Sawaguchi, Yoshiaki Hara, Hosui Kisaragi, Mio Tokiwa, and Hidehiko Kazama
Conan sees the picture of the blood spill near wardrobe.

As they were among the last people to see Oki alive, Inspector Megure calls everyone to police headquarters to inform them of Oki's death and question their alibis. Chiba reports that Oki died between 10 o'clock and midnight and that they found a sake cup broken in half at the crime scene. Megure says he has two theories about the cup's meaning. Either it fell out of Oki's pocket or it was a message left by either the murderer or the victim. Shiratori says the police have five main subjects. Because the building isn't open to the public, only Tokiwa, Hara, Kisaragi, Sawaguchi and Kazama could have entered Oki's room and committed the crime. Kogoro puts a theory forward - "choko" (sake cup) could refer to "chocolate" and point to Hara who is known for loving chocolate. Megure informs Kogoro that Hara is the only one among the suspects who has an alibi. The police don't really have a valid motive yet but wonder if Oki's death had something to do with the towers themselves. Oki was an influential politician who made the city government give up their opposition to the building project.

Conan asks if the sake cup couldn't refer to Mio Tokiwa because her brooch looks like it. Kogoro angrily objects but Megure says she is actually the current main suspect since she was staying on the 68th floor of tower B, making her closest to the victim. Sonoko says the sake cup reminds her of the bowl used to mix powder in traditional Japanese painting. They realise it could point to almost every one of the subjects except Kazama and Sawaguchi. Conan tells the police officers that he heard Kazama studied under Teiji Moriya but Shiratori replies that that doesn't make him suspicious as Kazama is nowhere near as much a perfectionist as Moriya was. Megure adds that Sawaguchi maybe had a motive for killing Oki as well. Her father was an investigative journalist who was looking into Oki when he suddenly died from exhaustion. Sawaguchi was in her last year at university when she lost her father. However, there is no evidence that ties Oki to Mr. Sawaguchi's death.

Conan sneaks another look at the photo of the victim hidden in Megure's notebook and notices that blood is suspiciously missing from a place where it should be. Ai looks at the photo with him and says she has noticed the same. Conan quietly tells her he worries the sake cup could point to the Black Organisation but Ai calms him, saying they would never leave such an obvious message.

Out of the corner of his eye, Conan sees Genta, Mitsuhiko and Ayumi having a quiet discussion and apparently agreeing on something. The three friends meet up at Beika Station to get ahead of Conan in their investigation, but Conan sneaks up on them, surprising them and makes them promise never to do anything this dangerous again, after all they could meet a murderer. Genta explains he asked Ai to join them - she declined, saying she had housework to do. Actually, Ai spends the afternoon by herself and watches a gangster movie which reminds her a lot of herself now she left the Organisation.

Mitsuhiko explains their plans to Conan. They are on their way to Kazama's house and plan to visit Hara the following day. Mitsuhiko says they also found out Kisaragi lives in a house he had built in Asahino, in walking distance from Kazama, and that he moved there three years ago.

Upon arrival at Asahino station, the Detective Boys first go to visit Kazama. Conan is impressed by the CAD system the architect uses to digitally design his buildings and models. Mitsuhiko starts questioning Kazama on Oki's death. He says he had no reason to be angry at the politician and was actually quite grateful for his support in the twin towers project and thanked Oki for it. Kazama also tells them about his son and that he has to call his family now. Conan realises Kazama can't be the murderer as he was completely relaxed around them.

Kisaragi is working on a painting of Mount Fuji when the Detective Boys knock on his door. He is originally furious with them for disturbing him in the middle of his work. Conan notices Kisaragi has the blinds drawn even though his house overlooks Mount Fuji perfectly. Kisaragi draws caricatures of all the Detective Boys, hands them to the kids with a grin and shoos them away.

That night, Professor Agasa wakes up from his own loud snoring. He gets up to have a glass of water and overhears Ai speaking to someone on the phone. The following morning, he calls Conan and says Genta told him something similar had happened during their recent camping trip. Agasa fears the Organisation has lured Ai back in, but Conan tells the professor to trust her.

Conan puts the phone down and meets up with the rest of the Detective Boys to visit Hara. Hara's doors are not fully closed, making Conan instantly suspicious. He takes his shoes off, sneaks into the apartment and they find Hara dead on the floor of his living room.


Murder

Movie5 Case2.jpg

Location: Apartment room 407
Victim: Yoshiaki Hara
Age: 32 years old
Cause of death: Gunshot wound
Suspects: Chinami Sawaguchi, Hosui Kisaragi, Mio Tokiwa, and Hidehiko Kazama
Hara is killed with a Beretta 92FS Suppresed in his apartment while eating chocolate cake.

Hara has a single wound in his chest that could come from a gunshot. Conan also spots a knife with chocolate cake remains on the floor next to Hara's body and another broken sake cup.

The police arrive and Takagi wonders what the sake cup could mean. Shiratori says it is obvious that they're now dealing with a serial killer. Conan privately asks Investigator Tome from the Crime Scene Team about the cup and Tome points out that this one doesn't have any bloodstains on it, meaning it could have been placed at the scene after Hara's murder to draw attention away from the actual murderer.

Shiratori and Megure update Kogoro on the newest developments and say Hara was likely killed between 5 and 6 at night a day ago. Someone apparently also wiped Hara's entire computer data. The remaining suspects are Tokiwa, Kazama; Sawaguchi and Kisaragi. Megure says he wanted to ask Tokiwa to postpone the opening party, but she refused, sending two ivnitations to the party to the police instead.

A black Porsche 356A parks in front of a block of flats and Gin steps out. He enters the building and meets with Vodka who is searching one of the apartments, previously belonging to a certain Akemi Miyano. Gin says they could use Akemi's computer to run a call tracing program to find out where Sherry is and Vodka switches the computer on.

At the same time, Ai gets up and calls Akemi's number, leaving a message about the party that will happen the following day. Gin's program is almost successful, but three seconds before it can reveal Sherry's current location to him and Vodka, the line is cut. Conan has secretly followed Ai and pulled the plug. He chastises her for being so reckless, reminding her that the Organisation already turned up at the Twin Towers. Ai runs back to her room in tears. Akemi's phone rings again shortly afterwards but the caller only uses it to remotely delete Ai's message.

The following morning, Ai explains herself to her friends at Teitan Elementary. She says she knows she is doing something dangerous, but she misses hearing her sister's voice and the only way she can do that is by calling Akemi's number and listening to her mailbox message. The Detective Boys comfort her and reassure her she isn't alone anymore, she has got all of them now.

Opening night at the Twin towers arrives. A metallic ball is rolled into the central surveillance room in the first level of the tower basements. The ball releases a gas that immediately knocks out the guards watching the CCTV screens. The culprit plants bombs in the main server room, near the entrance and on the rooftop of tower A.

At the same time, at Kogoro's Detective Agency, everyone meets up to go to the party but Sonoko is late. Conan and Ai quietly discuss the case and Conan asks Ai if Hara could be involved with the Black Organisation. Ai says it might be possible, the Organisation looks to recruit different sorts of specialists from all possible fields to work on its research projects.

Sonoko finally arrives, wearing her hair in a perm like Ai. Outside of the buildings, Takagi, Chiba, Megure and Shiratori stand guard, having had their entrance refused by Tokiwa, so all the police can do for now is watch the guests arriving for the party.

In the reception room, everyone immediately notices a shiny red Ford Mustang Convertible on a pedestal. The kids wonder how it was transported to the 75th floor as the car is too big to fit into the regular elevator, but Ayumi notices there is another elevator for cargo that was used to bring the car upstairs.

The guests enjoy a beautiful view of the sunset from the high windows and Mio Tokiwa walks on stage. She announces the guests will now be able to join a game she herself learned from her father, the "30 seconds- game". Participants will have to guess when 30 seconds have passed without using their watches or phones. Whoever comes closest will win the Mustang. If there is a tie, the winner will be decided by rock-paper-scissors and the loser receives a mountain bike with a helmet. Mio's assistant collects everyone's watches except for Conan's and Ai's. Before the game officially begins, Conan notices that Kisaragi didn't participate either.

Mio starts the stopwatch and, to everyone's immense surprise, Kogoro wins the game.

Sawaguchi calls up several guests of honour who helped build the Twin Towers to the stage before the lights are switched off for a special presentation. On a screen in front of the stage, the guests see a variety of paintings made by Hosui Kisaragi as an announcer talks about his artistic career, saying they will now officially present his latest masterpiece.

The spotlights are turned on, revealing a massive painting of Mount Fuji and Mio Tokiwa's body dangles from a wire in front of the painting. She was hanged.

Murder

Movie5 Case3.jpg

Location: Twin Tower stage, 75th Floor
Victim: Mio Tokiwa
Age: 36 years old
Cause of death: Hanging with Pearl Necklace
Suspects: Chinami Sawaguchi, Hosui Kisaragi, and Hidehiko Kazama
The tokiwa President is death by hanging with Pearl necklace in ftont of the painting of Mount Fuji.

Kogoro brings her body down to do a first inspection and notices a sake cup on the floor next to Mio's corpse. This one, however, is unbroken. They draw the curtains and Kogoro calls Megure and his officers to join him at the scene of the crime. They notice Mio's body was attached to a hook tied to the ceiling with piano wire, so she choked to death when the painting lowered and the wire was being pulled upwards. They decide to recreate the moment the murder was committed, instructing all suspects to stand where they stood when the lights went out. Kogoro accuses Kisaragi of committing the murder as he stood next to Mio, saying his motive was to prevent Mio from making a profit with his paintings. Takagi interjects, saying Kisaragi had no idea about the sake cups being left at the other crime scenes. Kogoro now declares it has to have been Sawaguchi, accusing her of being as ambitious as her father and of continuing her father's investigation into Oki's wrongdoings. Sawaguchi's father believed Oki was being bribed by Tokiwa to allow the building of the Twin Towers to continue. Sawaguchi asks Kogoro if he has any proof and he comes up with an outlandish theory. He says "choko" (sake cup) is spelled with the kanji for boar and kuchi and is a hint at Sawaguchi, who was born in the year of the boar. Conan wants to interrupt but Ai motions him over, saying she has an idea about the way the murder was committed. Ai says Mio couldn't have noticed someone attached a piano wire to her Pearl necklace as she had been drinking and this is how she was lured to her death. Conan has a look and finds a lone pearl next to the place Kisaragi stood in. He quickly gets the elevator to the ground level to confirm his suspicion for Kisaragi's motive.

Suddenly, at the 4th basement level, one of the bombs planted by the culprit explodes in the power generator room and all the lights in A tower go out. The second bomb detonates in the Server room and eradicates all data on the servers belonging to the Tokiwa corporation, setting off a giant fire in the process.

Bombing

Movie5 Case5.jpg

Location: Twin Tower A building (various areas)
Suspects: Unknown bomber
The explosives are get the blackout of Tower A and burning in 40th floor.

Sawaguchi remembers that the VIP elevators are still working as they run on an independent power source. All women and children are instructed to escape by the elevators which directly lead out of A tower and Megure instructs the men to use the emergency stairs, cross over the Sky Bridge and run down tower B. Firefighters arrive and formulate a plan to put the fires out. The evacuation begins.

Conan almost fits in the elevator but the weight sensors go off, making him wait for the next one. The elevator stops on the 66th floor and the Detective Boys get out as well, leaving their place to a frightened young woman and her baby, but leaving them stuck in the building as well. Conan realises the way the bombs were planted directly points to the Organisation, it was too precise to be committed to an ordinary criminal.

The elevator finally returns to the 75th floor and Conan, Ran and Sonoko step in. On the way down, Conan suddenly realises that the Organisation think Ai, or rather Shiho Miyano, is at the party as well and that they now mistake Sonoko for her thanks to her new hairstyle. He zooms in to the roof of B tower, using his glasses and spots Gin who has a sniper pointing his rifle directly at Sonoko.

Attempted Murder

Movie5 Case4.jpg

Location: Twin Tower elevator
Victim: Sonoko Suzuki
Attack Types: Shooting
Culprit: Gin
Conan uses his glasses to zoom in across B-Tower's roof and sees Gin with a sniper pointing directly at her.

Conan tricks Sonoko into moving out of the way and Gin, who observes them from the roof, realises that this can't be Shiho, as Sonoko behaves rather strangely when a bullet hits the elevator next to her. The elevator gets stuck.

Conan uses the elevator hatch to escape and Ran opens the door to the 45th floor. With flames making their way upwards, Conan hurries everyone across to the second Sky Bridge.

Gin and Vodka lock their scope lenses onto the second Bridge, believing Sherry must be escaping with the men. When they don't see her, they decide to blow up both bridges in the 60th and 45th floors, leaving Sherry trapped in tower A. Just as the Detective Boys want to hurry across the bridge in the 60th floor, it is blown up by Vodka, sending it crashing into the bridge on the 45th floor, trapping Conan and Ran as well. Smoke starts billowing into the room and Conan and Ran start to feel nauseous. Ran quickly thinks of a way to escape, breaks the glass hatch next to her, grabs a fire hose behind the hatch, ties it around Conan and herself and jumps off the building, using the force to break another glass window just as the hose starts to burn.

Conan and Ran reach the police downstairs but Conan can't see the Detective Boys. At exactly that moment, Genta contacts him with his badge, telling him they are still stuck on the 60th floor. Megure calls for a helicopter to rescue the kids. Conan sneaks across to Agasa's car to grab his skateboard, takes the elevator up to the 60th floor of B tower and jumps across the remains of the Sky Bridge to A tower, helping the Detective Boys escape to the roof before he goes back to the 75th floor to confront the serial killer.

People[edit]

  • Resolution[edit]

    Translation changes[edit]

    Anime[edit]

    • For some unknown reason, Gin refers to Sherry as "Shelly" in the English dub. This could be because of a translator error in the script or yet another edit TMS Entertainment required in the dub version.
    • The names of the characters in the Funimation Dub are:
    • Chinami Sawaguchi - Cherilyn Chrisabel
    • Iwamatsu Oki - Augustine Odell
    • Mio Tokiwa - Madison Monroe
    • Hidehiko Kazama - Theodore Radcliff

    Trivia[edit]

    • The car that Kogoro won which was used by Conan to jump from Tower A to the pool in Tower B is a 2002 red Ford Mustang GT convertible [SN95].

    • This marks the final speaking appearances of Gin and Vodka in the Funimation dub.
    • Copies of the film were withheld from home video release in the United States due to the film's plot involving the bombing of a twin tower building, as the film's DVD release was not long after 9/11, which saw the bombings of the World Trade Center buildings in New York.
    • There are conspiracy theories stating that the plot of this movie was meant as a warning about 9/11, as the film was released the same year that the attacks happened, and the attacks were very similar to some of the events depicted in the film, with twin tower buildings being bombed in both and the subsequent fires causing massive structural damage.
    • The movie Haibara was watching in the cinema, in which a gangster uses a M1928 Thompson submachine gun, is Bonnie and Clyde (1967).
    • Gin's sniper assault rifle used to shoot Sonoko is a Colt M16A2.
