Search for Maria-chan! (マリアちゃんを探せ! Maria-chan o Sagase!?) is the 941st and 942nd episodes of the Detective Conan anime. This case marks an important revelation about the Black Organization, since we finally reached the identity of their boss.




Part 1

Maria Higashio hasn't come to school today and Kobayashi sends Haibara and the Detective Boys to her home to see how she's going and if everything's all right.


EP941 Case.png

Location: Teitan Elementary School
Victim: Maria Higashio
Age: 7 years old
Time: All day
Maria Higashio hasn't come to school, which is quite weird, and her parents didn't notify Kobayashi about the reason of her not coming to school.

Meanwhile, Conan, bed-ridden with a cold, enjoys Ran's agreement to hook up. He goes to see Professor Agasa and reads in the news that someone saw Shinichi Kudo at Kyoto and on TV. He starts being very nervous and asks Haibara and Heiji about it, while Ran, Sonoko, and Masumi read it as well. The media overrun Heiji and Shinichi's high schools, and Shinichi's house, though Okiya can't let them in. The Detective Boys believe Maria went to her late paternal grandparents' house and took part to the scavenger hunt they organized for her. Haibara helps the Detective Boys to follow the arrows and understand the messages. Suddenly, they arrive in a room where a bookshelf was knocked over, and fear Maria might be stuck under it. But it's not the case and there is instead another code to decipher.

Part 2

The Detective Boys understand Maria went downstairs and try to find out the other arrows. Shinichi has still trouble finding who is the "Kudo Family Freak" blog owner and how to stop all that mess. Ran tries to figure out what happens and why is Shinichi considered like a ghost. Heiji tells Conan he'll try to settle things on his side. The Detective Boys finally arrive to a bathroom but the only arrow points to the shower, and there's nothing inside. They convince Haibara to ask Conan's help, and the latter tells them to give some water to the drinking bird next to the arrow.

The Detective Boys give the drinking bird a glass of water and the bird starts bending and unbending. They then notice the glass's water has reversed the arrow's direction, which now points towards the opposite direction of the bathroom, another room the kids fail to open. Kanenori Wakita rings at Professor Agasa's door and asks what's is the hustle and bustle in front of their neightbours' house all about, he can't do his deliveries.

Conan tells the Detective Boys that the door isn't locked but the difference in temperatures between the cold corridor and the warm room where Maria is, creates a pressure gradient that can be dispelled by pushing the door strongly and opening a vent. Maria is indeed inside, asleep. She had come to watch some videos of her grandparents, but was then unable to open the door to leave the room, and thought she had to watch every video for the door to open.




  • Just before this case, the special episode which introduced Renya Karasuma was remastered as a two-halves episode.
  • The Secret of the Moon, the Star, and the Sun was before Haibara transferred in the manga, while in the anime version she didn't came here, so the Detective Boys' statement is wrong.
  • Just like in The Darkest Nightmare, Rum was only given a computerized altered voice, and the credits do not list a voice actor. They did this intentionally so that no one could look up what other characters that voice actor/actress might play.
