Ayumi-chan's Kidnapping Case

A COLDFUSION & BAARO RELEASE My name's Conan Edogawa! High school student Shin'ichi was forced to take a drug that shrunk him.
If the organization learned that Shin'ichi and Conan were the same person, everyone close to me would be in danger! The only one who knows the truth is Dr.
Agasa! I hide my identity yet again today, in which there is only one truth!

I'm sorry to say this, but your crime is as clear as daylight.
You've made three very basic mistakes! Mistake #1: Cans scattered around the waste bin in an unnatural fashion.
The number of cans is proof enough that there's something inside the bin.
Mistake #2: The ice cream bar you were just eating is lying nearby.
You were in a rush to hide, so you dropped it on the ground, half-eaten.
Mistake #3: The most incriminating evidence of all is that I can see your big butt inside the waste bin, Genta-kun! You talk too much, you know?! "Arrested" Ayumi-chan! I found Genta too! Come back! Already?! It's no fun when you're "it"— the game always ends right away! It's no fun for me either! A high school student playing detective games in the park These badges are so awesome! "Detective Boys!" We're the only primary school students in the world with badges like these! Yeah, huh? There are tiny transceivers built inside! You can communicate over long distances by using the dial on the back to change frequencies! It's perfect for kids' games, but I'd rather not have to play myself If they hadn't come over to invite me to play, I would've gone with Ran to Teitan University's school festival! Don't you worry! I'll have plenty of fun with the university girls for you! Ok! This time I'll be the detective and you guys'll be the criminals! I have to be a criminal again?! We only need one detective! Now get going! Whatever.
One, two, three I love Hide-and-Seek! Hurry, Conan-kun! I can't believe I keep going along with this What happens if this keeps up and I turn stupid?! Upsy daisy.
Sorry! Here I come! Time to show you all the skill of Genta Kojima-sama, leader of the Detective Boys! Genta's looking hard! "Multiple girls kidnapped and murdered.
" They haven't caught them yet?! Scary, isn't it? Ayumi-chan Cute girls are the only ones they're going after.
That means I'm in huge danger, huh? But I'm not worried.
If something bad ever happened, you'd be there to protect me, wouldn't you, Conan-kun? After all, we're destined to be together! Come on now, Ayumi-chan shimpai wa iranai yo boku ga soba ni iru kara Don't worry, because I'm here for you Found you, Conan! You may be good at finding people, but you sure suck at hiding! I hate running away and hiding from people! kimi no tame ni itsudemo tatakau boku dakara I'll always fight for you That's weird though, I could swear I heard Ayumi's voice too Stupid! Hurry and hide! Was there something there? Just a cat! sora ga kumo-tte kite mo boku ga soba ni iru kara Even if the sky clouds up, I'm here for you Let's see Somewhere for me to hide What's keepin' that moron?! kimi dake ni aozora o misete ageru I'll show the blue sky only to you Lucky! shite wa ikenai to kinjirarete bakkari dakedo Even though it was only ever forbidden, Found Mitsuhiko! Odd.
Scientifically speaking, he shouldn't have found me.
What was scientific about that? OK! That leaves just Ayumi! That dumb Genta aisuru koto o yurusareta toki boku-ra wa tatta when we were allowed to love, How long can it possibly take him to find an ordinary little girl?! She is not an ordinary little girl.
Oh, never mind Guess l'll tune up the skateboard the Doc gave me.
arukidashita we stood up and walked off Um, do you mind if I ask you something? How do you How do you feel about Ayumi-chan?! I'm asking you how you feel about her as a girl! As just a friend! Oh, really? Mitsuhiko Don't tell me you have a crush on Ayumi-chan N-No! I'm simply asking your opinion to help me decide on my "life plan"! Life plan? You're not talking about marriage, are you?! You're so lucky! The Doctor makes so much stuff for you! Gimme a break! Kids these days! What took you so damn long?! Come on! I already said I'm sorry! We're in trouble if we don't get movin'! Yeah.
You still haven't found Ayumi-chan? Just give up and have her come out.
Yeah, right! Like I'd ever say anything that uncool in front of her Ah! So Genta likes Ayumi-chan too! After all, we're destined to be together! What a situation I've gotten myself into Ayumi-chan! Can you hear me? Let's call it quits.
You can come out now.
That's strange.
Do you think she went home without us? Maybe something happened to her?! I'll turn the volume up Ayumi-chan! Ayumi-chan! Conan-kun? Ayumi-chan! Ow! Ayumi-chan! Conan-kun?! Where are you?! I don't know.
Somewhere dark and cramped.
How did I get here? That sound! It's a car! Oh, yeah! I hid in the trunk of a car that was stopped in front of the park.
But then I got sleepy In front of the park?! That car?! What's this?! Awesome! Money! There's tons of it in a paper bag! A million yen times 100, I bet! A hundred million?! Awesome! The car must belong to someone rich! Why would that much money be in a paper bag?! Is there anything else besides the money? Let me see Yeah, there is.
It looks like a plastic bag.
Is it filled with grilled eel lunches?! Oh, look, a saw.
A saw? But what's this thing? It's slippery! Hey.
You been hearin' a kid's voice come from the back? Knock it off.
There's no way that thing could talk.
Yeah, you're right.
Is the saw the only thing inside the bag? There's also something round and wrapped in paper Let me see what's inside Stop! Don't open that, Ayumi-chan! It's a head! A girl's head! A girl's head?! Don't tell me the car Ayumi-chan got in belonged to those kidnappers who're killing little girls! Hey! Something's not right! Yeah, I heard it too! Let me check out the trunk.
Hey, unlock it! Right! Ah! So that's what we heard! That had me scared for a minute there! Don't cry! Don't cry, Ayumi-chan! They'll hear you if you do! I know! Think of something funny! S-Something funny? Ayumi-chan? I just remembered how Genta-kun looked like a bear when he fell down the stairs the other day and got two bumps! Girls make no sense even at a time like this Ayumi-chan.
You can stop now.
Be quiet and don't move a muscle! Okay I'm coming to save you! Okay! But how are you gonna chase them?! They're in a car, you know! It'll be hopeless with that skateboard! The Doc made this for me.
It's no ordinary skateboard! It's equipped with a high-performance turbo engine! But it's solar powered, so you can only use it when the sun is out.
One hour until sunset Are you stupid? You guys wait here! That car belongs to a couple of murderers! Murder, schmurder! I can't just sit here while Ayumi-chan is in danger! Protecting women is a man's duty! You guys All right, then! Ayumi-chan! Where's the car now?! I have no idea! This car's weird, it keeps moving and then stopping! Plus there are weird sounds outside Turn up your badge's volume, would you? Okay This sound That's it! They're stuck in traffic because of road construction! The only place around here where there's construction is at the intersection on 2nd Street! We can still catch them! Here we go! Better hold on! Right! Ayumi! There's no reason to kill her, you know.
Her parents paid the ransom, and besides, she's just a kid You fool! She's seen our faces.
We can't leave her alive! Even if she is just a kid! Bastards! Hang on, Ayumi! We're coming for you! Where's their car?! Ayumi! Are you still stopping and going?! Yeah.
But it's not the same place as before.
I don't hear those weird sounds anymore, plus the car just drove a long way! plus the car just drove a long way! Hold on.
If they're in a traffic jam up ahead, then That's it! The highway! This is bad! There's no catching them if they get on the highway! Damn it! What do we do?! There sure have been a lot of police cars passing by Yeah, that's the fourth one Inspector Megure? Is something going on? the kidnappers appear to have escaped to Beika Town.
The authorities have formed a police cordon and are trying as hard as possible to arrest them.
Ayumi-chan! Have you heard any police cars?! Yeah! About 3 of them passed by when we were stopped! There's no doubt about it! They've set up an inspection checkpoint! Probably where the roads converge right before the highway starts: on Beika Bridge! Let's go! Hey! Beika Bridge is straight down that last street! Don't be stupid.
They wouldn't dare go through the checkpoint! They'd obviously take a side street to get out of Beika without going over the bridge! They'll have to come down this street! We're moving! The car's moving! Bring it on! You're as good as ours! Where are they? It's already been 5 minutes Hey! What the heck's going on, Conan?! That's odd.
Ayumi-chan! Is the car stopped right now? Or is it moving? What's going on, Ayumi-chan?! Say something, Ayumi! Did she go out of range?! No, these things have a broadcast radius of 20 kilometres! There's no way they could've gone that far in 5 minutes! Maybe she's in a tunnel or something?! Beika Tunnel! That must be it! No, they'd have to pass through the inspection point and go over the bridge to enter Beika Tunnel! Which means they must be inside a building that disrupts our signals! You don't think it's their hideout, do you?! In that case, they're like rats in a trap! The police'll find them eventually! Moron! They'll find Ayumi-chan before they get caught! She's seen our faces.
We can't leave her alive! Even if she is just a kid! If something bad ever happened, you'd be there to protect me, wouldn't you, Conan-kun? Ayumi! na ku Conan-kun! Where are you?! Ayumi-chan! Why wouldn't you say anything, you jerk?! Calm down, Ayumi-chan! They'll hear you if you yell too loud! There's no way they would hear me! The car's so loud that I can't hear their voices! Do you know where you are right now?! No! There was this roaring sound and then you stopped replying to me! Roaring sound? So they were in the tunnel?! But how did they pass through the checkpoint?! We'll come after you right away! Just keep quiet and wait for us! Come on, faster! The skateboard'll stop soon if we don't hurry! Conan-kun! It sounds like the car's in some sort of shop now! Shop?! I heard someone say, "Welcome", and this weird sound just started! Sound?! A gas station! Which one?! Ayumi-chan! Let me hear what's going on outside! Okay.
We're currently giving away Yaiba towels and T-shirts We don't need any! We're in a hurry! The only gas station where you can get Kamen Yaiba goods is Yotsubishi Gas, which we just passed! I finally found them! What was that sound, Conan-kun?! Ayumi-chan's definitely in the trunk of that car! As is the girl's head and the money! They're the ones kidnapping and killing little girls! Hey, did you hear anything strange just now? It's just some kids playing pranks! What's going on? What's going on, Ayumi-chan?! Ayumi-chan! Respond! Ayumi-chan! Hey, something's definitely strange! It's probably just a stray cat.
No need to get worked up! Bastards! There's no escape now! Huh?! What's going on?! They're getting away! Oh no! There's not enough solar power! We have to do something before we stop altogether! That's it! Hey! Stop, you kids! Stop the car! Or else I'll do this! Damn kids! Who were those kids?! Hell if I know! Let's just hurry! There's no time! Move! Ugh! My hands are going numb! I can't hold on any longer! Genta! Ayumi! Ayumi! Ayumi! Ayumi! Ayumi! It's those kids! Who cares?! Let's just get her out of there and split! Right! Who're you?! Who is this brat?! Don't kill me! What?! Ayumi! Here goes! Hey, be quiet! Ayumi! Get down! Take this! Ayumi-chan! You're all here! Ayumi-chan! I'm so glad you're all right! You had us worried! It's all over for you! You're the ones who've been kidnapping and murdering little girls! Murdering?! There's no point in playing dumb! We heard your guys' conversation in the car! Yeah! You said you'd have no trouble killing little kids! And then there's the corpse and money in your trunk! Try talking your way out of that one! You idiots! Take a better look! They're all hand-made props! Props?! Our conversation in the car was us practicing our lines one last time! Practicing your lines? "Teitan University School Festival" We're performing in a play here! Come to think of it! Let's go to Teitan University's school festival, Conan-kun! I hear they're going to have an interesting mystery play! And besides, they said on the radio that they just caught the murderer! Inspector Megure! So was that the real killer then? Look at what you've done! He's been smashed and the head's busted Well, it was nice meeting you Not so fast! Y-Yes? You'll have to take responsibility for this! Just my imagination Playing with threads around my finger while drinking lukewarm tea samekaketa koucha nominagara yubi ni karamu ito o asobase bossa nova no rhythm de keikai ni arukou Let's walk lightly to the bossa nova rhythm puzzle no piece wa te no naka sa The puzzle pieces are in my hands That's right sou sa Ah-Ah-Ah- I'll be in the same place next week but with different clothes raishuu mo ore wa chigau fuku de onaji basho ni iru sa Step by step, there's no reason to be anxious Step by Step aseru-koto nante nai no sa Case by Case warawareta-tte kamawanai Case by case, I don't care if you laugh kazoekirenu hibi no mukou ni aitsu ga matte-iru kara Beyond the countless days, she's waiting for me I gotta go my own way "We Won't Live to See Tomorrow" Her parents paid the r ransom, and besides, she's just a kid You fool! She's seen our faces! We can't leave her alive! Hey, there's something weird about that actor.
You think? He can't stand up straight, and he keeps blowing his lines! You're so beautiful, Miss! Let's do tea, let's do tea! No thanks Oh, come on, now! Wouldn't you like to see my famous detective skills— That's enough of that! Genta! Say the next line! I don't know how to read this word! That's right—we were put onstage as a main character.
That's pronounced "cruel"! Incidentally, the role of the decapitated head That's cruel! went to Ayumi-chan herself.
