A lady enters a suspicious testing lab by pressing her hand on the passcode to enter. She pours coffee and milk and starts to open her desktop computer. It is revealed she is Sherry. She is working on a suspicious experiment in the Black Organization Lab. She views some live footage of test subjects (mice) on a computer screen. She then phones her sister Akemi and asks her to come over, saying that she will show her something interesting.
Shinichi Kudo's Aquarium Case
Shinichi explains Ran how detective are like sharks. The opening features snapshots of important manga pages accompanied with the first soundtrack of Detective Conan, "Mune ga Dokidoki". After Shinichi has solved the case and they are on their way back home, it starts to rain. Ran puts on her hood and the phone that Shinichi put on it accidentally falls. Ran is very upset and blames herself for trusting her new phone with Shinichi. Shinichi tells her he'll buy her a new one and to further lift her up, promises to take her to Tropical Land.
Gin and Vodka's Meeting Scene
Haido's Karate Champion
Suzuki Family Scene
There apparently are guests at Sonoko's home. Her mother scolds her for not knocking the door before she entered. The guest, Takanori Sewa seems to have some problems with his New Year Party. He has been receiving threatening letters. Shinichi offers Sewa his assistance, but he declines saying that he has already increased the number of guards. When they stand to leave, Takanori accidentally puts his electronic wheelchair on reverse. Shinichi rushes to help, but Ran pushes him off, saves Takanori and catches the vase which was falling. Takanori initially scolds Ran for trying such a reckless stunt, but realizes his mistake and praises her.
Sonoko and her parents want Ran to use a special suit they made for her for the coming Karate Competition, but there are regulations for the dongi they wear in competitions. She still accepts it saying that she'll use it for her practice, if they don't mind. They are still happy. Sonoko seems all excited, since she had carved "Love Shinichi" on the back collar of the dongi.
In the end, Ran's new phone wasn't bought. Before parting ways with Shinichi, she remembers she forgot her wallet at his home. She finds it and goes to bid goodbye to Shinichi, who is reading at his home library. Ran thinks Shinichi's first crush was his actress mom, but he denies it. Ran questions then who was it? Shinichi stares for a while at Ran and tries to say that it was she, but Agasa interrupts this moment with a mobile rocket experiment gone wrong. Ran provides first-aid to Agasa. Shinichi thinks his experiments are way dangerous for a device carrying out transportation. Agasa brags that he put safety first in building his mobile rocket and starts it again. His rocket flies him away screaming.
Meanwhile, Vodka expresses his suspicions regarding the man who wants to hold their important transaction in an open ground. Gin seems to despise Bourbon.
Karate Tournament Scene
Ran is doing well in the competition, going further step-by-step. Sonoko cheers her while Kogoro and Eri argue on which one's characters their daughter inherited. In her fight with Hina Wada, she faces tough competition and on the brim of losing. At such a vital time, Shinichi gets a call from the Inspector regarding a case and he has to leave urgently. He apologizes to Ran for leaving. But she is in a burning rage, surrounded by dark aura. Hina Wada and even the referee is scared at her look. She is definitely going to win the tournament.
Case 1: Crime at the Private Mansion
Takanori Sewa's New Year Party has been interrupted by a murder: one of the guests, President Yamazaki of Yatsubishi Bank, was found dead with a knife that pierced through his heart. The police, led by Inspector Megure, have been investigating the crime scene, but have no conclusive evidence as to who the killer is. Shinichi makes his grand entrance and claims he has figured out the case.

Manga to Special Changes
- In the manga, the victim of the first case was the mansion owner's wife. In this version, similar to the original episode, a bank president named Yamazaki was killed instead.
- Both Gin and Conan are shown in possession of cell phones in scenes that originally did not contain them. In the original, Shinichi simply witnessed the Black Organization deals and Gin had a camera; in the Special they both use their phones's cameras instead.
- In the manga, Gin uses a metal rod to knock out Shinichi. Whereas in this version he uses his retractable walking stick, which makes more sense since such a blow to the head would have left him with more than a minor injury.
- In both manga and anime, Gin just places the pill in Shinichi's mouth and then forces him to drink the contents of a bottle to force him consume the poison that would shrink him. In the special, he also sticks his fingers up Shinichi's mouth to make sure the pill will be swallowed.
- Hina Wada, a character created rather recently in the manga, gets a brief scene where she apprehends a thief by herself.
- Characters not yet created at the start of the manga (like Wataru Takagi, Kazunobu Chiba, Chianti and Korn) get cameos in the special.
- Sewa was in a normal wheelchair in the manga and anime, whereas he uses an electronic one in the special.
Anime to special changes
- In the original episode 1, Yamazaki was shot in the chest. In this version, he is stabbed with a knife.
- In the original episode 1, The evidence that caught Sewa was his hospital records that Shinichi earlier investigated instead of first meeting him at Sonoko's residence, and him noticing his foot was already healed.
- Sewa's wife is seen alive and well. Her and Sewa's son shows up too.
- The news castors that are talking about Shinichi as he walks by have been replaced by Rena Mizunashi and a co-host.
- The scenes with the Detective Boys sneaking into the Mystery Coaster and finding the pearl strand were cut. Instead, Shinichi and Ran encounter them playing soccer earlier in the Special and Shinichi even plays soccer with them a little.
- Ran and Shinichi visit Sonoko and her parents in their mansion, right before Sewa kills Yamazaki. Sewa himself is there and briefly freaks out when he realizes Shinichi's identity.
- The karate tournament won by Ran is shown, with Hina Wada as her opponent. Additionally, both Makoto and Sonoko are seen and it's stated that this is when Makoto fell in love at first sight with Sonoko.
- Instead of a shining white light censor, a dark blood fountain is seen during the decapitation scene. There's so much blood that Ran gets all stained with it.
- During the flash forward, the scene where Akemi Miyano is killed is exactly like how it was in the original manga, while the anime altered this scene so that she would live, and later another episode had to be made in order to fix the plothole.
- The scene where Shiho sees Shinichi and Ran came from Nazo.
- The subtitle of this episode "The Great Detective Turned Small" (Chīsakunatta Meitantei) is the same title that was used by file 002 of the manga.
- During Yusaku and Yukiko's brief appearance, they are in their "Night Baron" and "Fumiyo Edogawa" disguise from Conan Edogawa Kidnapping Case.
- During the scene where Eri is talking to Kogoro over the phone, a calico cat is shown lying on her desk. This is Eri's previous cat that is mentioned in file 528, it had died a month earlier off screen resulting in her taking in Goro from a friend. Since this Special takes place before that, her first cat is still alive.
- The number Ran bears during the karate tournament is "910", which can also be read as "Kudo" in Japanese.
- On the cover of file 984 Ran's texts for Shinichi are the exact same structure and content that were on Ran's note in this special: the note she left for him after their date at Tropical Land in, the one where Shiho finds with a picture of Shinichi and Ran.
- The car of the man in the bar is a White Mercedes-Benz s 350 2011 although the logo is modified to avoid product placement.
- The mysterious man vehicle in car bombing is an Atomic Silver Lexus RC 350 F Sport.
