There's just no end to these crimes That's exactly why your detective skills are proving so useful.
Old man Kogoro gets all the credit, though.
All done! These are my special Criminal Pursuit Glasses.
How do I use these? Try pressing the button on the side.
Sweet! It'll display the location of this transmitter within a 20-kilometer radius.
You can keep it here most of the time.
It's like a sticker! Thank you, Dr.
Agasa! My name is Masami Hirota! Please! Find my father! Go on My father, who works away from home in Tokyo, quit his taxi driver job, and he's been missing for a full month now! So that's why you've come to me? Yes.
I took time off from school in Yamagata to come look for him here! You're the only one I can turn to now, Detective! Very well.
I'll take on the case.
This is my father, Kenzo Hirota.
He's 5'9" and 48 years old! What about this cat? It's my father's cat.
Its name is Kai.
He has three others named Tei, Gou, and Ou.
Finding people isn't really my thing.
But if he had one of these on him, I could've found him in no time at all.
I know! I'll stick it on Ran and test it out! Here you are.
What the heck are you doing?! Oh, nothing The transmitter! Oh no! I stuck it there! My mother died when I was little, so my father is my only family! If anything were to happen to him! No.
Well, not yet I haven't found any leads Sorry.
Masami-san again? That's the third time today.
Apparently he didn't socialize much with other people, and he almost never talked about himself, according to his coworkers.
Goukai Teiou pulls ahead of the pack to earn his 5th G-1 victory in a row! Damn it! It's already been a week! Goukai Teiou? It's my father's cat.
Its name is Kai.
He has three others named Tei, Gou, and Ou.
Kai, Tei, Gou, and Ou! Rearrange them and This is— "Goukai Teiou" —nothing important.
Goukai Teiou truly is invincible! Yeah, that has to be it! Hirota-san loves horse races! So he named his cats after a famous horse! Hey, Dad! Hey, now! I bet you can find him at the race track! Hello?! Wow! This is my first time at a race track! Let's hurry and find Masami-san's father.
Yeah, right! Like he'd be that easy to find! Don't be mocking us detectives! There he is! See! I'm such a great detective! No way! I'll go get him! Wait! He's purposely gone missing.
We don't want to scare him away and then lose him! But We'll follow him back home.
I've been looking for you for so long! Dad! Good for her! Doesn't something seem different about her? She's wearing more grown-up clothes, and it looks like she has makeup on.
She hasn't seen her dad in a long time! Of course she'd wear make up! That case was as easy as pie in the hands of Kogoro Mouri! Who's that? He's dead?! We found him after he hanged himself last night.
What a pain! What about his daughter?! Daughter? You know, Hirota-san's daughter? The one who came looking for him? Oh? So there was something going after all? Something wasn't right about him.
He said he'd pay me a full years' worth of rent all at once if I let him have an apartment with no questions asked.
Plus all the bills were brand-new and crisp! My guess is if his daughter did come over, then she's probably dead too.
What do you mean? I thought Hirota-san committed suicide The police said it was a murder.
Yes, it was a homicide.
He was hung from the ceiling after he was killed.
Judging from the large hand marks on the victim's neck, the murderer must have been quite a large man.
What about his daughter?! These were lying on the floor near the scene of the crime.
These are Masami-san's glasses.
Her body hasn't turned up yet, but I'm pretty sure that she's— Come on, now.
Don't be so depressed.
But Masami-san might've been murdered! And she just found her father, too! How horrible! We still don't know for sure that she was murdered! We can't give up yet! But now what? If only we had a clue to go by! That's it! I accidentally put the transmitter on her! Perfect! Hey, kid! Where are you going?! The fact that it's moving means Masami-san might still be alive! Come on! Make it in time! A pachinko parlor?! What's Masami-san doing here? Oh no, the battery's dying! I have to find her quick! Ain't no kids allowed in here! Get out! The battery's dead.
Hey, you! Why were you gone so long?! Oh, you know What's up with Ran? She's been like that for a while now.
She must really be worried about Masami-san.
Something's weird about that guy.
He's been looking up here this whole time.
He's the man who was hanging out by Hirota-san's apartment! Come to think about it, the killer was a large man! He killed Masami-san's father? Wait right here! I'll go catch him and find out where Masami-san is! Where's Masami-san? What's happened to her?! Stop right there! I caught him! Good work! What great luck! Who'd have thought the killer would come to us?! Killer?! You've got it all wrong! Yeah, right! Then who are you?! I'm the same as you! What?! I'm a detective too! Actually, I, too, was asked to find Hirota-san.
By this man.
That's that guy! I'm really a detective, I swear! Then why did you run away?! That young woman came after me, so I instinctually I've always been sort of a coward I wear these sunglasses so people can't make fun of me.
Enough of your stupid excuses! Get serious! Masami-san's life is at stake here! Yes, I know.
So you were asked to locate Kenzo Hirota-san as well, then? Yes.
But there was something strange about his family This was the man who hired me! He asked me to find his brother who left Kyushu for Tokyo.
He said his brother was his only relative.
His only relative? Masami-san was supposed to be Hirota-san's only relative! That's weird, too! Masami-san's father came here from Yamagata! That is strange.
There can't be two Hirota-sans There's one other thing that's strange.
I heard this from the taxi company that Hirota-san worked at.
Apparently he would drive the same route every single evening, without bothering to pick up any passengers! And he would do this at breakneck speeds! He was just letting off steam.
Happens all the time to middle-aged men.
So, who is this client of yours? Akira Hirota.
28 years old.
He's a large man, over 6 feet 3 inches tall.
A large man?! That's right.
Could he be the large man the inspector was talking about? Tell me! Did you tell this man anything about Hirota-san?! Yes, of course And then it was after that that Hirota-san was murdered.
So I wondered if there was any connection That's it! This man murdered Hirota-san! And then he took Masami-san with him! Well? How can I contact him?! He contacts me! So you don't have any clues? Sorry It's him! There's no mistake! It's the man I ran into at the pachinko parlor.
But why did the transmitter on Masami-san's watch lead me there?! If he really is the killer, and he was wearing Masami-san's watch then she's already— —been murdered! Hurry and recharge it, Doc! Stop rushing me! Being impatient isn't going to help you any! But if we don't hurry Say, do you remember the robbery from the other day, the one where they stole a billion yen? Yeah, the one with the trio of thieves? A security guard was killed when he recklessly tried to stop them.
That's what he got for taking them lightly.
Calm, cool, and collected That's your style, isn't it? I get it.
Is he really in this hotel? Definitely! I saw him go in on my way home from school! That's strange! The transmitter hasn't moved at all for a while now! He didn't take the watch off and escape, did he?! Yes, he's staying in Room 802.
Come on, hurry up! Who'd have thought he was really here? Just when I'm in a hurry, too! Thank you! Open up! I know you're in there! It's open! He's dead! This sweet smell it's potassium cyanide! I see.
He couldn't live with what he had done so he killed himself! We should contact the police! That's Masami-san's watch.
So he did take it from her.
Empty duralumin cases.
Wait! Two separate, yet conflicting requests to find the same person Kenzo Hirota-san acting strange and driving the same route everyday And then these cases What if Huh? Hirota-san was single?! Yeah.
He didn't have any daughters.
Plus he was born and raised in Tokyo.
That can't be! That's it! I have this case figured out! These empty cases are the key to unlocking this mystery! Masami-san, Kenzo Hirota, and Akira Hirota Now that we know they're not relatives, they have no connection whatsoever! But in the context of the other recent incident, the entire mystery comes unraveled! They're the three thieves who stole the one billion in yen! Judging from the number of cases here, they must have been filled with the stolen money.
If so, then the reason Hirota-san sped down the same route everyday was to rehearse their getaway! Their plan succeeded, but he took all the money for himself and ran.
He betrayed them.
Eager to catch Hirota-san, the two partners concocted lies and sent separate detectives to locate him.
And then when he was found, he was killed.
Killed by the large man, who was then killed in this very room.
Killed by the woman who claimed she was Hirota-san's daughter.
Perhaps she was the mastermind behind these murders! Wait! Her hairstyle and overall appearance were different, but her build and the number of suitcases she had weren't! Where are you going, Conan-kun?! I found Masami-san! Ran! Hurry! Hey, kid! No cutting in line! Our dad's gonna be chopped into pieces and buried alive in the mountains if we don't hurry and save him! G-Go right ahead Follow that taxi! What about the mountains? The reason she seemed different the second time we saw her was because when we found Hirota-san, she was in a hurry and hadn't completed her disguise! And then Hirota-san's reaction when he saw her That wasn't because he was surprised to see his daughter.
It was because he was terrified of the partners he betrayed coming to exact revenge on him! Damn it! Why didn't I realize it sooner?! What now? We lost her! I'm 100% certain she entered this harbor! She's definitely somewhere nearby! Conan-kun! Where's the money, Masami Hirota? Or should I say, Akemi Miyano-kun.
Okita-san! What's going on?! The sleeping drug you gave me to put him to sleep The instant he drank it, he fell to the ground and stopped moving! Explain! What he had in brute strength he lacked in intelligence.
There's no doubt that he would alert the authorities by throwing all his money around the instant he got it.
As long as someone that dangerous remained alive, my own plans would be hindered.
You intended to kill everyone from the start, didn't you?! Now hand over the money.
It isn't here! It's being held at a certain location.
I'm sick of you using me! I'm through with this! Do you honestly think that is an option? I do.
After I escape overseas, I'll let you know where the money is.
We can't have that, now.
As long as you're alive, my plan is in jeopardy.
Once you're dead, all links to me will have vanished.
I can easily find any number of replacements for you and the other two.
Getting my own hands dirty goes against my principles, but it will be the finishing touch.
How simple-minded.
Kill me, and you'll never know where the money is.
I have a pretty good idea where to find it.
You did a good job.
Allow me to express my gratitude by killing you.
Masami-san! Take this! Are you alright? Just a scratch.
You're the boy from the detective agency! How did you know I was here?! My transmitter! Transmitter? When we first met at the agency, I accidentally stuck it on your watch.
After following the signal, I arrived at the hotel and then ran into you.
Seeing you with all the large suitcases, I realized you were leaving with the billion yen that you stole.
Who are you? Conan Edogawa.
A detective.
I had no idea there was anything on the watch.
But the watch belonged to that big man, right? No, he broke his own watch when he lost control and killed Hirota-san, so I gave him mine.
This guy intended to kill everyone from the very start, didn't he? Yes.
Hirota-san realized this, so he betrayed us before we knew what was happening Does that mean this man is the mastermind behind the billion-yen robbery? That's right.
Okita scouted for people he needed to realize his plan.
He would put these people into teams and have them commit robberies.
Rumor had it that he would eliminate his recruits to keep them silent after they would finish his jobs, but I didn't know it was the truth! You're not going to run away? I'm tired.
I'll tell you where the suitcases with the one billion yen are! The front desk of the hotel, right? How did you know that?! When you got in the taxi, you didn't have the suitcases with you.
I simply assumed that You're really something.
That's enough! You talk too much, woman! Masami-san! Who's he?! The boss behind the billion yen robbery! Just as she had said, the billion yen were being kept at the hotel.
The bill codes matched those of the stolen money.
Thus the billion-yen robbery case came to a close.
Thank you, little detective.
