About what? Your chocolate for Valentine's Day! This huge event only comes once a year, you know! We have to use chocolate to capture men's hearts! Oh, right You're like spacing out or something Am I? Oh! What about him! Who's "him"? Oh, come on! Those two guys who tried to pick us up at the coffee shop that one Sunday! Remember? They said they were both medical students at Beika University! Especially Minagawa-san! He's totally cool! The other one was Wakamatsu-san, was it? He's perfect for you, Ran! He seemed really interested in you, after all! Hello there, Ran-san! I've been looking for you! What good timing! Don't you agree? We'll solve any case at all, no matter how difficult it may be! If you have any problems, just leave it to us! Conan! Stop loafing around and help! I'm high school detective Shin'ichi Kudo! I'm not about to play games with a bunch of pipsqueaks! Ran! Ran-san! I'm here today to ask you something important! Ran-san! I'm here to ask you on a date! Date?! Would you come with me to tomorrow's Valentine party? Valentine party? Yes.
Girls are supposed to give chocolate to a boy they like, and if the boy feels the same way for her, he will eat the chocolate right there on the spot.
Say, will Minagawa-san be coming too? Of course.
The party is taking place at his house, after all.
We'll come! Ran and I will both come for sure! Sonoko! R-Really?! This is great! Thank you very much! Valentine party? Gimme a break.
Well then, I will come pick you up tomorrow.
Bye-bye! Why did you say that without asking me?! I guess I was right after all.
You like Shin'ichi-kun, don't you? You're being faithful to him and giving all other guys the old "no thank you" routine! Don't be stupid! Who would actually like that big mystery geek?! Well, excuse me.
Then you'll go to the Valentine party, right? Of course I'll go! Alright! It's decided! Just you watch, Katsuhiko Minagawa! I'll use my chocolate to melt even your bone marrow! Sonoko's fired up "Mouri Detective Agency" I'm the great detective Kogoro Mouri What are you doing, Ran-neechan? Nothing much It smells like chocolate! Tomorrow's Valentine's Day! You have someone to give chocolate to then? How rude! I wouldn't be making chocolate by hand if I didn't have someone to give any to! Oh, right! Who knows, Shin'ichi-niichan might just come back! Shin'ichi? Now that I think about it, there was a guy by that name Hey, now.
I'm going now! OK.
Go and catch a rich man.
That's weird.
Conan-kun isn't here either.
Ran! What're you doing?! We're about to leave without you! I have no choice but to find out where that chocolate winds up! Sorry to keep you waiting! And away we go! Cheers! Now then, let us introduce our Beika University tennis club to our guests, Ran Mouri-san and Sonoko Suzuki-san! You go first, Minagawa! OK.
I'm Katsuhiko Minagawa, the captain.
I'm happy to meet you two.
Really?! I'm happy too! Calm down, calm down I'm Kaori Sekiya.
Sonoko-san.
You're still young, but you shouldn't go overboard like that She's envious of me.
She's really pretty but obviously really jealous too Naomichi.
You're next.
Come on.
You really are gloomy, you know that? I'm Yoshimi Watanabe.
Nice to meet you.
And then there's me, the strong, yet sensitive, Toshihide Wakamatsu! Who does Ran think she is? She actually looks like she's having fun.
I'm sorry for the wait! Here is today's main dish! Thank you ever so much, Mrs.
Minagawa! You're Minagawa-san's mother?! You're so young! You certainly know how to flatter a woman! Hey, lady! Let's play together! Susumu! Go to your room! You're disruptin' the party! You're Minagawa-san's younger brother? You're so cute! But he doesn't really look like Minagawa-san, does he? How long is that stupid Ran going to be here?! I'm so cold and hungry! Oh no! Conan-kun! What are you doing here?! I was just going to a friend's house but then I got lost! Do you know that boy? Yes.
He's been staying at my house lately for certain reasons.
It must be cold outside.
Come in.
OK! I think someone should perform something.
Naomichi! You do it! You not hear me or something?! Get this party started! I'm not very good at that sort of thing.
What?! You dare defy me?! Just looking at your face makes me sick! Don't you think Minagawa-san's got a bit of an attitude problem? It's good for guys to be a little like that! Anyway, did you bring your chocolate?! Yeah Watch! Minagawa-san's down for the count once he eats my chocolate! You sure you didn't put poison in it then? I, Sonoko Suzuki, humbly offer- Say, beautiful girls like you must have hobbies like tea ceremony and flower arrangement, right? Karate.
How could Ran-san do anything so uncivilized! Karate.
As if such a lovely and charming woman would ever be into karate! Kaori.
Stop treating Naomichi like that.
It really pisses me off when you feel sorrier for him than me! You mean to say you're worse off than him? What?! You've changed! You've become so reckless ever since then! What do you know?! I know enough! We grew up together, after all! Get a hold of yourself! Will you accept this? Knock it off.
I only want to be friends.
I see I guess you really do like Yoshimi the best What's the matter? It should be OK, right? It's just her hand Here goes! I have to take the initiative! What lovely hands Ran-san! Outta the way! Conan-kun! R-Ran-san! Yes? Take that! Freakin' kid! Stay away from Ran-neechan! Conan-kun! Susumu! How many times do I have to tell you?! No sweets! Your cavity still hasn't healed yet! But Kaori-oneechan gave it to me! Kaori.
It was Katsuhiko, wasn't it?! Did he do something bad to you- It's none of your business! Katsuhiko's nothing but human scum! There's no reason for him to hurt you like that, no matter what! Just leave me alone! Damn that Katsuhiko! Go, Minagawa-san! Katsuhiko! It's 10 years too soon for you to challenge me! Well, everyone has to be good at something, I guess.
Ran-san must be sick of being with a guy with muscle for brains.
Minagawa! Are you lookin' for a fight?! I just call it like I see it.
What?! You're always like this! Why not think about other people's feelings for once?! You mean you have feelings too? Why you Now, now, that's enough! How about something to work off that alcohol? Let go! Say, Katsuhiko— What?! You gonna lecture me too?! I would never— Now then, let's all have dessert! Ah, here it is! Mrs.
Minagawa's home-made cakes! I hope you like them Of course I will! Thank you! Say, is that cake good? Both the cake and the coffee are great! Bitter! Don't drink her coffee! Here! Have some cake! Katsuhiko.
Aren't you going to eat your cake? No.
I hate sweets.
Don't you think maybe you're smoking too much? You should try to cut back a little.
Get off my case and quit annoyin' me! Looks like I got a little drunk.
Think I'll go get some fresh air.
Empty.
You can have mine.
Yoshimi likes him after all What does she see in him, I wonder? Which reminds me, do you have any chocolate for me, Ran-san? It's Katsuhiko! He's K-Katsuhiko! Katsuhiko! Katsuhiko!! Call for the police and an ambulance! Right! Katsuhiko! Mrs.
Minagawa Katsuhiko-san passed away earlier.
The cause appears to be agricultural chemicals used as food poison.
Yoshimi Watanabe-san.
He collapsed shortly after eating your chocolate, did he not? Yes.
It goes without saying that this case is an easy one.
What are you doing here?! Having received word from my daughter, I, the great detective Kogoro Mouri, hastened to the scene! You did it! You poisoned the chocolate in order to kill the victim! Romantic issues were your motive! All we have to do is check the rest of your chocolate to prove it! No! It wasn't me! Yoshimi! Everything's too convenient for it to have been her.
Everyone's eaten the exact same things as the victim.
Even if the sushi was poisoned, it would be impossible to tell which ones the victim would eat.
Everyone drank coffee that came from the same pot.
Which means it was the cake? No, the victim didn't eat it! No.
I hate sweets.
What does it all mean? Was Yoshimi-san the murderer after all?! That's it! Mister! Come to think of it, there was a cigarette butt at the crime scene, wasn't there? A cigarette? That's right! That's a possibility too! So this is the cigarette butt discovered at the scene of the crime.
Yes, there are ways to poison cigarettes I saw it! When Minagawa-san went outside, Naomichi-san gave him his cigarettes! N-Naomichi! How could you?! Well?! We can always find out if we examine the cigarette butt, you know! It's true! I did it! I've hated him for a long time! That damn Katsuhiko was always making a fool of me! He even hurt Kaori! So I put poison in the cigarette filter! The filter? No! He didn't do it! Mommy! My tooth hurts! She's washing the coffee cups.
At a time like this? That's it! I got it! Here goes! I call this the Anesthetic Watch Gun.
With it, you can make anyone within close range go to sleep instantly.
His voice was Number 59, if I remember correctly One moment, please, Inspector Megure.
He is not the murderer.
What are you talking about? He's confessed to it, you know.
He did indeed plan to murder the victim, but he failed.
Have a look at the cigarette butt.
All of the victim's other cigarettes in the house were unfiltered.
After receiving the cigarettes from Naomichi, the victim removed the filter before lighting one up.
In other words, he didn't smoke the part that had the poison in it.
Then who did it, Dad?! The real murderer was you, Katsuhiko-kun's mother! What are you talking about?! How in the world could I have done it?! By poisoning the food.
Everyone ate the same food! Yes.
But only Katsuhiko-kun died.
He died because he didn't eat.
What do you mean, he didn't eat? Mrs.
Minagawa.
I hear you were nearly red with anger when Susumu-kun ate some chocolate.
Yet you let him have some cake! Why was that? It was because you put poison in the coffee and the antidote in the cake! Seeing Susumu-kun drink the poisoned coffee, you rushed to give him some of the cake—and the antidote! You knew that Katsuhiko-kun probably wouldn't eat the cake since he hated sweets.
Then, upon devising this plan, you decided to use the fact that Yoshimi-san loved him to your advantage! You knew without question that he would eat her chocolate.
Being the very first person on the scene, you took the chocolate he partially ate and replaced it with poisoned chocolate! All while trying to make Yoshimi-san look guilty, of course.
Pure fiction! There's no proof! But there is.
In the coffee cups.
Before the police came, you washed the coffee cups as quickly as possible.
No matter how much you washed them, detailed examination will still find the poison! Even if there isn't any left in the cups, there will still be some in the drain pipes.
Mrs.
Minagawa.
It appears it's starting to melt.
Yoshimi-san's real chocolate bar, which you hid in your kimono, that is.
Nonsense! How would I know that he would eat Yoshimi's chocolate?! Why would I kill my own son?! No! Katsuhiko's real parents died Then you, his father's sister, took him in! Katsuhiko liked Yoshimi because she looked like his real mother.
That's how you knew for sure that he would eat her chocolate! I'm so sorry, Yoshimi-san! I just happened to see you buying chocolate one day and then the idea suddenly came to me! I had no other choice! We desperately needed Katsuhiko's inheritance because my husband's business went under! I wanted to protect this house and Susumu's happiness!

Ran-san! Here you are! I could give you a ride home if you want No, that's okay Oh! Is that chocolate for me?! No— Thank you! I'm utterly delighted! That's enough! Just leave me alone! I'm sorry for bothering you! "For Shin'ichi-kun" Ran You can eat it if you'd like.
I'm sure Shin'ichi wouldn't mind either.
You followed me to keep me safe, right? Thanks! NEXT EPISODE Sending 25 million yen along with toys seems too much to be a prank.
