List of episodes

The Case On the Opposite Shore (対岸の事件 Taigan no Jiken?) is the 978th episode of the Detective Conan anime.





Conan, Haibara, and the Detective Boys are watching birds, but Conan proposes another game to them called "human watching". While teaching the Detective Boys how the game works, trying to determine people's jobs and occupations by watching them, they stumble upon detectives Takagi and Chiba apparently on a stakeout.

Location: Shibata house
Victim: Mika Shibata
Age: 5 years old
Time: A day ago
Suspects: People at the park
The police officers are on a stakeout to watch Mr. Shibata carrying the ransom. They are waiting to see who will approach him and arrest that person, since it is likely to be the kidnapper.


  • Resolution


    • The birds observed by the Detective Boys are in order, a heron, a sandpiper, mallard ducks and a kingfisher.
    • In the culprit's house, there are fake Adidas sports shoes and fake Nike soccer shoes.
    • The fraudster's shirt has the word "scam" written on it, making an obvious hint to what he's doing.
