Case[]

Situation[]

Part 1[]

Ran and Sonoko are getting ready to attend a huge concert by the very popular J-Pop band Two-Mix. Some hours before that, Conan and the Detective Boys go to a coffee parlor and meet a lady with sunglasses and a cap... who turns out to be the singer of the group, a woman named Minami Takayama whose voice is rather similar to Conan's.

At some point, however, Takayama gets outta the parlor and is confronted by two mysterious men in a car. She's then forcibly pushed into the backseat of the vehicle, where her partner Shiina Nagano is bound and gagged! The children witness this and notify Megure and Takagi, trying to help as much as they can to rescue the two artists...

Kidnapping

[15]

Location: Front of the café
Victims: Minami Takayama and Shiina Nagano
Suspects: Satoshi Miyahara and his assistant

Part 2[]

Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, and Genta tells Inspector Megure everything except how to find Conan. They decide to follow him and they learned who the kidnapper is and why the crime was committed.

People[]

Resolution[]

  « Hide spoilers[20][21]Satoshi MiyaharaSatoshi Miyahara is the kidnapper who wants to destroy Two-Mix along with the song that they wrote because the lyrics coincidentally reveal the truth behind a murder that he committed. He killed an unknown man last New Year's Eve near Shoenji Temple. That temple is where the Two-Mix came up with the lyrics. It was around 11:50 PM when the bell was ringing out the old year, the police found a dead man holding a gun in his stiff hand. Because one bullet was missing from the loaded gun and smoke was found on the dead man's hand, the court ruled in Satoshi's favor and the case was closed as self-defense. However, that is far from what actually happened. The gun belongs to Satoshi and not to the victim. He intended to kill the victim from the beginning. First, he shot the man dead. Then, he put the reloaded gun in the victim's hand and shot the ground. This way, the police would detect smoke from his hand as though he fired the gun. Satoshi's accomplice is also involved in his past crime. The accomplice carried a bullet and then the empty cartridge of the first shot from the crime scene while Satoshi called the police. It would've been a perfect crime since there are no witnesses. However, the Two-mix heard them at that time and applied what they heard to their lyrics in the belief that the gunshots were fireworks. Satoshi heard the song on the radio so he decided to destroy the Two-Mix along with the demo tape before the police found them.

He admitted his crime and points out that the man he killed was a guy who fled from Japan after their successful robbery 8 years ago. The man suddenly came back and blackmailed them for money saying he would go to the police. Actually, a priest of Shoenji temple saw Satoshi's face when he was on the way to kill that man. However, the priest was deaf and stayed at the temple the whole night.

With some tricks from his cell phone, Conan is able to save the captured Detective Boys as well as the Two-MIX members. 30 minutes later, the police arrested the two kidnappers.

While Takayama and Nagano are saved, they need some more minutes to get ready backstage before the concert. Conan manages to win them some time by grabbing a microphone and horribly singing from the back, until they're all set. Takayama happily pulls him and the Detective Boys with her, and they all sing together the song tha Nagano plays onstage for them.

Remastered version[]

A remastered version of this case was aired on August 22, 2015 (Part 1) and August 29, 2015 (Part 2).

Trivia[]

  • In the original (and e.g. the German version), Conan is seen at the karaoke box singing opening 1.
  • The demo tape song's lyrics seem to be based on Two-Mix's song "Living Daylights".
  • The song Two-Mix performs at the concert is "BREAK" from their "Fantastix" album. It has been dubbed into English, Galician, German and Italian in their own dubs.
