While at the bank, Conan witnesses bank robbers driving away with the 1 billion yen in a truck. The police finds the abandoned truck under the bridge and come upon a mask used for the robbery.

Plothole note

The manga version of The Strange Person Hunt Murder Case ended with Akemi Miyano encountering and being fatally wounded by Gin, then being found by Ran and Conan, and finally dying in Conan's arms. The anime version altered the outcome so that Masami Hirota would live and work at a bank leading to episode 128 (as well as replacing Gin and Vodka with an episode exclusive character named Okita).

Since the story is very important to the continuity (such as leading up to Ai Haibara's appearance) this episode was made to fix the plot hole. The murder scene proper is very similar to the original one, save for three details: Ran isn't present until after Akemi dies, Shiho Miyano's silhouette when Akemi brings up her sister is ommited, and the blood on the scene is severely censored.


  • Gin can be obviously seen using his right hand to fire the gun. Every other time Gin had used his left hand. It is assumed this was just a discontinuity, and does not suggest the fact that Gin is ambidextrous.
  • This is the first episode where Officer Tome is referred to by name.
