Case[]

Situation []

After visiting an exhibit on hidden treasures Conan and his friends find a piece of paper with symbols and the word "Oro" written on it. A treasure hunt ensues but does not discover much. Conan, initially not interested in the children's treasure hunt finally realizes that the paper is a treasure map after learning that "Oro" means gold in Italian. That night, Conan determines that the symbols refer to neon light signs on buildings.

Robbery

EP4 Case

Location: An Italian bank
Suspects: Dino Cavane, and Cavane's accomplices
The day before Conan and the Detective Boys found a treasure map, Dino Cavane was arrested by police but the whereabouts of the 15,000 Maple Leaf gold coins he stole is still a mystery...

Resolution []

  • Evidence
    • There's no doubt that Dino Cavane and his accomplices are responsible for the theft of the Maple Leaf coins, but Cavane refuses to say where the coins are hidden.
    • Conan and the Detective Boys find a piece of paper with odd symbols drawn on it and the word "ORO" as they leave a museum.
    • After looking at an Italian-Japanese dictionary, Conan realizes "ORO" means "Gold" in Italian. Conan is shocked to realize he and the Detective Boys really did find a treasure map.
    • Conan is puzzled why someone who is Italian would make a reference to a Japanese street name near Tohto Tower.
  • Conclusion

Conan realizes that the shapes on the treasure map really refer to the shapes of neon signs near Tohto Tower. It wouldn't make sense for someone who does not speak Japanese to make a reference to a Japanese named street, but rather draw pictures of a recognizable objects they saw.

Conan and the Detective Boys manage to find the location of the missing Maple Leaf coins, only to be confronted by Cavane's thugs. Thanks to Conan's quick thinking, Conan and the Detective Boys manage to knock the thugs unconscious and run to the police.

Manga to anime changes[]

Main article: List of differences between the manga and anime

  • An entire portion of the story is left out of the anime where Ran takes Conan, Genta, Ayumi, and Mitsuhiko to Tohto Tower. She recalls a time when she and Shinichi visited the tower and when he bought her a cold drink, which he put up to her cheek. Conan does the same thing, which prompts her to ask him about his true identity (as the manga version takes place after the The Shinkansen's Bomb Case). Conan responds by stating that he is Kamen Yaiba. The scene in question would later appear (ironically) at the begining of the fourth movie Captured in Her Eyes which Ran has a flashback too.
  • In the manga, Genta envisions that the Italian gangsters will shoot him, and imagines himself lying in a pool of his own blood. The anime substitutes a less graphic and more stylized image, with a miniature Genta being riddled with colorful, cartoon-like gunshots.

Remastered version[]

On June 6, 2009, a remastered version of the case was aired
