How long do you intend to detain all of my guests? We don't have any more time to be part of your fruitless investigation! Now, now, sir.
The victim was a guest invited to your party— President Yamazaki of Yatsubishi Bank! Please have a little more patience.
Are you suggesting that the one responsible is in this room? Precisely.
The door was locked from the inside.
The killer entered from the next window over on the third floor and then left the same way.
There were no footprints below the window, which points to the fact that this was an inside job.
Nonsense! It's almost 10 meters to the next window! Jumping from one to the other is impossible! If the killer used the edge of the roof to get across to the next window, there would be less than of the room where Mr.
Yamazaki was.
What childish reasoning.
So how did the killer leave then? There's no way they could have jumped the 2 meters to the roof edge, which only sticks 10 centimeters out! The killer brought some rope when leaving the next room over, affixed it to the veranda, and then later used it to return.
But then how was the rope removed from the veranda afterward? It's simple, Inspector Megure! A stick was tied to one end of the rope and attached to the veranda.
It easily came undone when tugged.
Check the veranda.
You should find marks from when the rope was affixed to it! But what was Mr.
Yamazaki doing inside a locked room? Most likely, the killer told him to wait there with the door locked because he had something important and secret to tell him.
I've had enough of your pompous talk! Just who was it who broke in and killed Mr.
Yamazaki, my best friend?! There is only one person who knows enough of this house's layout and who could walk throughout it without raising any suspicion.
That person is That person is None other than you! You must be joking! My leg hasn't even healed yet! There is always only one truth! Y-Your leg! Oh no! Your leg healed 3 months ago! Isn't that right, Inspector Megure? Give it up.
Your physician has disclosed everything! We also know that you and your best friend Mr.
Yamazaki had under-the-table financial dealings.
Oh no you don't! Goal! I'm really in your debt, Kudo-kun! Thanks for always being there to help! No problem at all.
If you run into any other difficult cases, feel free to contact me, Detective Shin'ichi Kudo! ter Mu ller Coaster Murd oller Coaster Murder C The Roller Coaster Murder Case The Roller Coaster Murder Case The Roller Coaster Murder Case The Roller Coaster Murder Case The Roller Coaster Murder Case What the Give me a break here, Dr.
Agasa! I just thought I'd wake you up! Works better than an alarm clock, wouldn't you agree? The number of books you have here never ceases to amaze me! Well, it was because of all these that your father was able to become an international mystery writer.
Stop moving around, Doc.
Oh, sorry.
What were you testing this time? Don't tell this to anyone, got it?! This is just between you and me! This is a Personal Mobility Rocket! Once I perfect it, traffic jams will become a thing of the past and I'll be filthy rich! What are these? Oh, books.
Hopeless.
Dammit! That stupid kid again! Get a hold of yourself, Dad.
It's 'cuz he's a high school student playing a detective that I hardly ever get any jobs anymore! It can't be helped.
Shin'ichi is just really good at it.
I have to make a living, you know! I'm going to school now! Go wherever you want! The famous detective Shin'ichi Kudo! The modern-day Japanese Sherlock Holmes! Also considered by many as the savior of the Japanese police department! Shin'ichi Kudo is so cool! Maybe I should write him a love letter! Ran Mouri You're so stupid! Grinning like you're some big shot What're you so angry about, Ran? Nothing at all.
I'm not mad at all that my dad can't get any work because of you.
It's not my fault your dad doesn't get much work, he's just not good at it.
But I told you, I'm not mad at all Just what I'd expect from the head of the karate club If you hadn't quit the soccer club, you would've been a big hero here I only did soccer to acquire the physical prowess that all detectives need! Holmes had his fencing, after all But those are just novels.
But he's a detective that everyone's heard of! He's so amazing! He's always calm and composed no matter the situation, and he's practically overflowing with intelligence and refinement! And his keen powers of observation and deduction are unparalleled! On top of that, his violin skills are equal to those of a professional! Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes is the world's greatest detective! If you like him so much, why don't you become a writer like your dad? I don't want to write about detectives, I want to be one! The modern-day Japanese Sherlock Holmes! The exhilaration from catching the bad guys is beyond description! Try being a detective once and there's no going back! And look at all these fan letters! Detectives are popular! It's fine that you're always flirting with girls, but at least choose a favorite! My favorite What're you staring at? No, nothing! We better hurry or we'll miss class! Wait! You haven't forgotten your promise for tomorrow, right? My promise? Come on! You said if I won the karate tournament that you'd take me to Tropical Land! Sicko! I remember Ayumi Yoshida That was so totally fun! Mitsuhiko Tsuburaya Genta Kojima No, it was so totally bad for the heart! Let's go home For a big guy you sure get scared easy, Genta-kun But the Mystery Coaster should be okay for you two, right? Ayumi-chan, we only have enough left for the train back home.
That's fine! Just leave it to me! Hey, look, Shin'ichi! There's room on the Mystery Coaster! Let's go! Tryin' to sneak in for free, huh? Sheesh, kids these days The coolest thing about Holmes is when he first met his assistant Watson, he could tell he went to Afghanistan as a military doctor just by shaking his hand! Like this! You're in a gymnastics club, aren't you? H-How did you know?! Do you know him, Hitomi? It was the blisters on her hand.
Only girls who train on the horizontal bar ever get this many of them.
But you can get blisters doing tennis too Actually, I saw earlier when the wind blew her skirt up! Only those with experience on the horizontal bar get marks like that on their thighs! It's not fair if you knew from the start.
How long are you going to keep holding her hand? Oh, right! Hey, you! Quit botherin' my pals! A friend of yours? In that case, why don't we switch places in line? No, that's okay! Plus it'd be impolite to disturb Aiko and Kishida-kun! Ran I've liked you ever since I was— Shin'ichi Me too Shin'ichi! Let's go! We can get on! Oh, right! Now what do we do?! Now we just get in line for seats! Which way is the line? That's what we're trying to find out! and then Holmes Out of the way! We're first! So do you see? Conan Doyle must have wanted to be like Holmes! Cut it out with Holmes and Doyle, you big mystery geek! I looked so forward to coming here with you, Shin'ichi Why can't you see the way I feel about you? Ran Um, actually, I feel the same— Got you! What're you so nervous about? I'm obviously just kidding around! You won't make a good detective if you're tricked so easily! Bah.
But you know I really did look forward to this! Water? What was that?! Let's get the heck outta here! What's this? Those are police cars! Hey, there.
We didn't sneak in for free! Aren't you that high school detective?! Shin'ichi Kudo's the name.
Why Kishida-kun?! How horrible We don't have time to loiter around because of an ordinary accident! Let us leave already.
Wrong! This was a murder! And the culprit was one of the seven other people on the roller coaster! Shin'ichi! Where did you go?! Is that the truth, Kudo-kun?! What?! Kudo?! That's Shin'ichi Kudo, the famous high school student detective?! He's the savior of the Japanese police department! So he's Kudo.
So, temporarily taking you and Ran-kun out of the picture, there were 5 passengers total.
Passengers A and B in the first row were both friends of the victim.
C, who was both friend and girlfriend to the victim, was in the third row.
And D and E were the men in black who sat behind the victim.
But everyone had their safety guards on, so only the woman sitting next to him could have committed the murder! Hurry up, will you? We don't have time for your little detective games! What with this guy's icy stare? He's glaring like he's killed lots of people before without a second thought.
W-Who is he?! Inspector! There's a knife in this woman's purse! No way! I've never seen that before in my life! Aiko! And I thought you and Kishida-kun were on good terms How could you N-No! I didn't do it! It's obvious the girl did it! We'll be leaving now.
Alright! Take her into custody as the prime suspect! Wait, Inspector! She isn't the murderer.
Eh?! T-Then who is There is always only one truth! The one responsible is you! W-What are you talking about?! The knife was in Aiko's purse! Severing a person's head with such a knife would be impossible.
Especially for a young woman.
You put the knife in Aiko's purse in advance to put the blame on her.
But she was sitting in the very front row! Doesn't that make it impossible?! No, it's entirely possible if she utilized the coaster's speed in conjunction with a bit of piano wire or some rope.
Everyone ready? I'm the murderer, and Inspector Megure is the victim.
First, before pulling the safety guard down, I put a purse-like object behind my back.
Then the guard comes down and See? With the extra space, it's easy to slip out.
Next, I take out a pre-prepared rope with a hook at the end.
Then I put my legs around the guard, stretch back, and place the rope loop around the victim's neck.
All while inside a pitch-black tunnel, of course.
Then I attach the hook to the rail.
After this, the coaster's speed and power will take the head right off.
As a gymnast, doing all of this while on the coaster is entirely plausible! This is crazy! What proof do you have What happened to your necklace? The pearl necklace you were wearing before you got on the ride.
Is this not it? Your tears served as another clue.
You knew beforehand that the victim was going to die.
Which is why you silently wept before doing him in.
The trails of tears that go horizontally across your face The only way your tears could have flowed horizontally was if you were crying while on the coaster.
It was his fault, I tell you! He forsook me! Hitomi, you were going out with Kishida-kun? That's right! Long before I met you two in college! So that's why I decided to kill him where we had our very first date, using the necklace he gave me! Come on, don't cry! You aren't affected one bit, are you?! I'm used to crime scenes now.
You know, torn up bodies and stuff That's horrible! It's best to forget about it as soon as possible.
These sorta things happen all the time, you know! They do not! Huh? It's one of the men in black from the roller coaster Sorry, Ran! You go on ahead! Wait— I'll catch up with you! He's leaving! I'm not sure why, but I could just tell somehow I got the horrible feeling that I'd never see Shin'ichi again Sorry for the wait, Company Director.
You're late! I've been waiting for two hours! I came alone, just as I promised! I know.
I rode the roller coaster and checked from above.
Just hurry and give it to me! Don't get ahead of yourself! The money comes first! Here! I take it you have no objections?! Whoa! There's at least 100 million in there! This concludes our transaction.
Hurry and give me the film! The incriminating film that shows your company smuggling weapons? Here.
This is all of the film, right?! Of course.
Who in the world are these people? That's enough of your little detective game.
It was just our luck, having this punk kid follow us around Isn't he that detective, boss?! Want me to take care of him?! No.
The place is still crawlin' with cops.
We'll use this.
Our organization's latest poison.
It won't even show up in autopsies.
It hasn't been tested on humans yet, but let's consider this a trial run.
So long, Detective.
