Katsumasa Ogura (小倉 功雅 Ogura Katsumasa) is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Katsumasa Ogura is a 49 years old ramen shop owner that lives in Beika Town. He works every weeks and doesn't take any vacation since he really loves his work. He owned the shop since Sayo Ohashi, her present employee, was young and usually saw her with her father eat there until Mr. Ohashi died. His shop suddenly went popular after Kogoro Mouri and Conan Edogawa went there to taste the Ramen to die for. He is the inventor of the "Death Lord Ramen", which soonly became popular after the murder that occured there. He was one of the suspects in "The Killer in Ramen Ogura" case but wasn't really suspicious and an eventual culprit was caught. He is not skilled in publicity since t here wasn't a lot of clients that went there before it went reknowned.
Katsumasa is a pretty chubby man who doesn't care being a bit overweight and big eyebrows. He likes to keep the same clothes to work so he could be recognizable with his big black bandana and his yellow sweatshirt. He wears an apron while he's cooking to stay clean and has a brown skin and big eyebrows.
The owner of Ramen Ogura is a really nice person who likes to greet correctly his clients and doesn't become frustrated when Tokumori Saizu, an evil Real Estate Agent, threatens to tear down his building and disturbs the clients. He likes to tease his friends and make bets and jokes to keep the atmosphere joyful. He always out detailed information in his descriptions so the interlocutor won't be deceived.
After relentless efforts to find an appropriate dinner, Kogoro and Conan arrive in Katsumasa's shop Ramen Ogura and quickly thought it to be an old ragged shop but still gave it a try. It was revealed Katsumasa and Sayo's skills were really fitted for the tastiness of the "Death Lord Ramen" but soon, a murder occurs as the owner of the shopping district, Tokumori Saizu dies from poison. They find out at the end the culprit is none of the workers of Ramen Ogura but in fact Atsushi Taninaka, a barber shop owner who resented him.
Conan decides to invite Ran and Sonoko to Ramen Ogura since they watched a show about ramen cooking and just as they wished, Ramen Ogura moved in Beika district so they met again with Sayo and Katsumasa at their shop. As they were eating the "Death Lord Ramen", Yumi Miyamoto and Naeko Miike arrive saying that a possible killer is hidden amongst the 3 guests other than them. They finally found the culprit after investigations and the jewels they had stolen from the victim.
He is the one who employed Sayo and also an aquaintance of hers since her childhood since he was the owner when she was yound. She likes to tease him and make bets with him when they have nothing to do in the shop and she really lives close to him. She cooperates with him and obey to his tasks.
