A young man in a deerstalker hat and inverness coat identifies the culprit of a criminal case, an older businessman. The man admits his guilt, and when asked why he would commit a crime, that it was for the sake of his sick daughter. The young man pats the culprit on the shoulder as news cameras flash.

The next morning, the newspaper praises [[Saguru Hakuba]], lately arrived from London, for solving the case, and wonders whether he might be able to catch Kid. [[Ginzo Nakamori]] reads the headlines and scoffs at Saguru always asking for the criminal's motive, because Nakamori doesn't believe a criminal could have a reasonable motive. A nearby officer hopes to see a showdown between Saguru and Kid anyway, but Nakamori roars that he will be the only person to catch Kid. The sudden arrival of a Kid notice only fires him up further.

From the ice-skating rink at the edge of [[Tropical Land]], Kaito uses binoculars to watch the painting "Adam's Smile" arrive at the museum across the way. His scheming is interrupted by Aoko, on ice skates, declaring him the criminal, though it turns out she's only quoting Saguru's signature accusation-and-question. Unnerved, Kaito argues with her until she skates off, but when he tries to chase her, it becomes clear that Kaito can't skate at all. In the end he has to politely beg Aoko to give him a ride off the ice because he keep falling to the ground on his own.

That night, Nakamori prepares his team of officers for Kid's arrival. As they go to synchronize their watches, Nakamori hesitates with the time, and is interrupted by the date and time down to the millisecond -- Saguru Hakuba has arrived, with a silver pocketwatch, inverness coat, and high attention to detail. Nakamori recognizes Saguru from the paper, but dismisses him as an amateur until [[Minor_law_enforcement#Superintendent_General_Hakuba|Superintendent General Hakuba]], the head of the Tokyo police force and Saguru's father, persuades Nakamori to show Saguru the ropes of real police work. Convinced to work with Saguru, Nakamori offers to answer any questions, only to be interrogated about details regarding Kid that no one has answers to. Saguru then leaves to conduct his own investigation around the museum. Outside the museum, a bored policeman complains about the snow just before Kid knocks him out and steals his identity to access the museum, though Nakamori unknowingly berates Kid for not being at his post inside the art gallery. Back outside, Saguru sees a police notebook dropped in the snow of the entrance stairs and investigates the police cars to discover the bound, gagged, unconscious and half-naked officer. He visually inspects the outside of the museum further, and appears to have figured out at least part of Kid's plan. At the promised time, smoke emits from the barriers around the painting and obscure it. When the smoke clears the painting appears to have been replaced by a thank-you message from Kid.

<spoiler>Nakamori leads the charge after Kid, leaving one officer still recovering from the smoke, until the officer reveals himself to be Kid. Kid removes the painting from beneath his message and is about to leave when Saguru stalks into the room proper, demeaning Kid's petty, misdirecting illusions. Saguru announces that Kid is too late to succeed, but Kid abruptly loses the disguise and leaps to the upper balcony, confident in his escape plan. Saguru, however, has already cut the rope of the advertisement balloon Kid planned to use; with Kid cornered, Saguru asks why Kid steals. Kid counters that it is Saguru's job to discover why, and uses his hang-glider to escape, despite poor weather conditions for hang-gliding. The high winds catch Kid's cape and drop him right in front of Nakamori and his men, forcing Kid to flee on foot. He accidentally runs into the ice-skating rink just as he finished blowing up a dummy-double, and throws it to glide off just as he start to lose balance on the ice. Kid flops and falls multiple times while the blow-up dummy glides smoothly away, and Nakamori decides that Kid couldn't possibly be so incompetent as the real Kid is being. The police chase after and dog-pile the dummy, realizing their mistake too late to catch the real Kid. Saguru jots down in his notebook that Kid can't skate, looking amused by the knowledge.

The next morning at Ekoda High School, Kaito gloats that even Saguru couldn't stop Kid at all, to Aoko's displeasure. She wonders what Saguru might be like; Kaito dismisses him, only to hear the new student give the same sort of time-oriented introduction that Saguru gave the police last night. To Kaito's complete and utter shock, it turns out that Saguru is their age, and has just transferred into Kaito and Aoko's class at Ekoda High.

Several nights later, Kaitou Kid steals a jeweled necklace, once again eluding Hakuba and the police. Hakuba, however, does not consider the night a total loss. During his escape, Kid had left behind one vital piece of evidence: a hair. Hakuba uses his grandfather's research lab to analyze the hair's genetic material, and concludes that Kaitou Kid can only be Kaito Kuroba.

Chapter 15

A young man in a deerstalker hat and inverness coat identifies the culprit of a criminal case, an older businessman. The man admits his guilt, and when asked why he would commit a crime, that it was for the sake of his sick daughter. The young man pats the culprit on the shoulder as news cameras flash.

The next morning, the newspaper praises Saguru Hakuba, lately arrived from London, for solving the case, and wonders whether he might be able to catch Kid. Ginzo Nakamori reads the headlines and scoffs at Saguru always asking for the criminal's motive, because Nakamori doesn't believe a criminal could have a reasonable motive. A nearby officer hopes to see a showdown between Saguru and Kid anyway, but Nakamori roars that he will be the only person to catch Kid. The sudden arrival of a Kid notice only fires him up further.

From the ice-skating rink at the edge of Tropical Land, Kaito uses binoculars to watch the painting "Adam's Smile" arrive at the museum across the way. His scheming is interrupted by Aoko, on ice skates, declaring him the criminal, though it turns out she's only quoting Saguru's signature accusation-and-question. Unnerved, Kaito argues with her until she skates off, but when he tries to chase her, it becomes clear that Kaito can't skate at all. In the end he has to politely beg Aoko to give him a ride off the ice because he keep falling to the ground on his own.

That night, Nakamori prepares his team of officers for Kid's arrival. As they go to synchronize their watches, Nakamori hesitates with the time, and is interrupted by the date and time down to the millisecond. Saguru Hakuba has arrived, with a silver pocketwatch, inverness coat, and high attention to detail. Nakamori recognizes Saguru from the paper, but dismisses him as an amateur until Superintendent General Hakuba, the head of the Tokyo police force and Saguru's father, persuades Nakamori to show Saguru the ropes of real police work. Convinced to work with Saguru, Nakamori offers to answer any questions, only to be interrogated about details regarding Kid that no one has answers to. Saguru then leaves to conduct his own investigation around the museum. Outside the museum, a bored policeman complains about the snow just before Kid knocks him out and steals his identity to access the museum, though Nakamori unknowingly berates Kid for not being at his post inside the art gallery.

He visually inspects the outside of the museum further, and appears to have figured out at least part of Kid's plan. At the promised time, smoke emits from the barriers around the painting and obscure it. When the smoke clears the painting appears to have been replaced by a thank-you message from Kid.

Chapter 17

Akako continues to be frustrated by the fact that Kaito Kuroba - and by extension, Kaitou Kid - are immune to her magical charms. In an attempt to calm her, her crystal ball shows her a vision of the future: Kaitou Kid will soon be arrested by Saguru Hakuba, and disappear from her life entirely.

Several nights later, Kaitou Kid steals a jeweled necklace, once again eluding Hakuba and the police. Hakuba, however, does not consider the night a total loss. During his escape, Kid had left behind one vital piece of evidence: a hair. Hakuba uses his grandfather's research lab to analyze the hair's genetic material, and concludes that Kaitou Kid can only be Kaito Kuroba.

The next morning, Hakuba personally invites Kaito and Aoko to the Ochima Art Museum, where Kid's next heist is to take place. Though Kaito is initially suspicious, his ego wins out, and he accepts. Akako attempts to dissuade Kaito, but Kaito rebuffs her, explaining (without confessing his double identity) that Kaitou Kid would never back down from a challenge.

Chapter 18

Kaitou Kid targets the Treasured Sword, a priceless heirloom owned by the Mine family. At the Mine household, Inspector Nakamori and his squad ask to help protect the sword, but are ejected by the Mine matriarch. The Inspector and his men must make do with watching the house's perimeter; meanwhile, the house's youngest inhabitant, the energetic child samurai Yaiba, anticipates the idea of fighting Kid.

Late into the night, Kaitou Kid hang-glides toward the Mine household, but collides with Yaiba's vulture friend Shonosuke in mid-air. Kid falls into the Mines' koi pond, awakening Yaiba's frog friend Gerozaimon, but quickly hides himself. After Gerozaimon's cries are dismissed as sleepwalking by the rest of the household, Kid quickly recovers and resumes his plan to steal the sacred sword. During his heist, he encounters each of the household's three women, but seduces them all into stepping aside.

Eventually, Kid enters the Mine Dojo, and finds the sacred sword being protected by Yaiba.

Chapter 19

After another heist, the fifth for the month, Kaitou Kid is contacted by a mysterious figure who warns him to stay away from jewels in the future. Kid is left puzzled by the conversation, but dismisses the warning.

The next morning, Kaito crows over the target of Kid's next heist: India's largest sapphire, the Blue Birthday. His joy is quickly interrupted by Aoko, who complains that Kaitou Kid has left her father a busy, sleep-deprived wreck who cannot even attend her birthday party. Though somewhat dispirited by Aoko's hatred for Kid, Kaito agrees to attend her party and perform magic tricks for her guests after finishing an "errand" for the night.

After night falls, Kaitou Kid successfully foils Inspector Nakamori's security measures and steals the Blue Birthday - not knowing that the police had planted a transmitter on it. As Kid escapes onto the museum roof prepares to fly over to Aoko's house, a sudden gunshot shatters his glider, trapping him on the roof.

Kid is soon confronted by a gang of men in chapeaus and overcoats, led by an armed man with a distinctive mustache. This man, mistaking Kaito for the first Kaitou Kid, confesses that he had murdered Toichi Kuroba eight years ago. He then demands the Blue Birthday at gunpoint, promising to spare Kid's life in exchange. After Kid obeys, the man goes back on his word and shoots him, sending him tumbling over the roof.

At the Nakamori house, Aoko begins to worry, wondering when, or if, Kaito will appear.
