What's his problem?! Christmas only comes once a year! He's such a conceited mystery geek! That he is.
He's always arrogant, snobbish, and mean But maybe that's what I like about him! Ran What about you? Is there anyone you like, Sonoko? Of course there is.
Tatsuya Kimura.
Tatsuya? You know, the guy from Lex, that rock band! Ta-tsu-ya Ki-mu-ra! Oh, just some entertainer Dad got me invited to one of their live performances! I get to see Tatsuya in the flesh! Wanna come, Ran? You're going to meet them?! That's the Suzuki Group's connections for you.

Much better than some bands out there.

Katsumi Yamada (21) Drums Hey, hey, Tatsuya, that's no way to talk to her Mari's just doing her job as manager.
And have you been doing your job as our drummer? And you, Mieko.
Mieko Shibazaki (20) Guitar What was with you today?! I'm sick of your sucky playing! Sorry to keep you waiting.
Been waiting for you, Sumii-san.
I had my manager reserve this for us.
Go Sumii (28) Karaoke Box Manager Thanks! I always appreciate your business! That said, it's sad that a former band leader is stuck running a joint like this Former band leader? Shut up.
Don't make me take this back.
Huh? This song It's Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
I requested it.
For you, Ms.
Manager.
Mari Terahara (23) Manager It's perfect for you: you did believe in Santa until middle school.
Wouldn't you agree, Ms.
Snooty Manager? You jerk Fine.
I'll sing your song.
Later, Tatsuya! See ya! kurai yomichi wa Then one foggy Christmas Eve, pika-pika no Santa came to say Wow, she's good! omae no hana ga Rudolph, with your nose so bright, Damn it! What's he up to?! yaku ni tatsu no sa won't you guide my sleigh tonight? What's with that sad look? You wanna sing too, kid? No, that's okay! hoshi no kazu kazoete When I count the stars in the sky Hey, why's that lady crying? wakatta koto sore wa I realized that Because I'm saying goodbye.
To both Mieko and the band.
You're quitting Lex?! yasashii hito ni wa hoshi no ai kind people get help from the stars Yeah.
I'm leaving when this tour's over.
Everyone in the band knows.
Good riddance to that hopeless drummer, that bratty guitar player, and that snooty manager! That's Hey, that's my song! Who requested it? Tatsuya, it's time to go! We're going to miss the talk show! Shut up! I'll sing whenever I want to! Fine, then.
I'll call the studio to tell them we'll be late.
Here we go! Bloody Venus! ikashita yatsu da ze She's one hot babe! Tatsuya Kimura passionately sang omae no koto sa I'm talkin' about you! his hit song, "Bloody Venus.
" Ah, soba ni ite okure Oh Bloody Venus Ah, stay by me, oh bloody venus! Nobody knew his voice would never be heard again.
ushinaitakunai no sa omae e no ai I don't wanna lose the love I have for you Nobody except his killer.
That was awesome! How was my song? It was great! Hey, Katsumi.
Gimme one of them rice balls.
Here you go.
Thank you.
Oh, are you really quitting Lex? Don't worry, my solo debut's coming up soon.
Solo debut? My new song's already done.
His new song's done? What's it called? The title? It's called What's wrong?! Tatsuya! Tatsuya! Get an ambulance Hurry, go get an ambulance! Right! It's no good! He's dead! That smells like cyanide! Somebody planned this! Who could've done this, right in front of me?! The first suspect was Sumii, the guy who brought the food.
He and Tatsuya Kimura used to be bandmates.
But then Tatsuya went pro and became popular.
It looked like a jealousy murder.
But he was cleared of suspicion when we learned that everyone had eaten the food.
Furthermore, toxins were found on the victim's clothes and microphone, so he had touched the poison before eating the rice ball.
Basically, the killer placed poison on the microphone which indirectly adhered to him when he grabbed it.
That means it was done by the person who sang before him you, Mieko Shibazaki-san! I hear you sang a farewell song while crying.
Did something happen between you two? Tatsuya didn't dump me! He turned me down! Mieko When I told him how I felt Sorry, Mieko.
I already have someone I like.
She's gone right now, but I'm waiting for her to come back.
And she will.
I'm sure of it.
He said it couldn't work out between us! Then to pay him back, you No way! I didn't kill him! Someone he liked? Inspector.
It was Tatsuya who requested the song that she sang! She had no idea that he'd be singing next! That's why she couldn't have poisoned the microphone! That is true Say, who requested his Bloody Venus song? Hey, did Tatsuya-san always take his jacket off when he sang? Only at the start of every Bloody Venus.
Could it be?! Inspector! What part of his clothing had cyanide on it?! His left elbow area, I believe On his staff jacket?! No, there was nothing on his jacket.
That's it! Now I understand how the killer poisoned Tatsuya Kimura! And that killer is one of those three who have the same jacket on! Hey, guitar lady.
The manager and Tatsuya-san were arguing earlier; were they always like that? Yeah.
They argued about everything.
Tatsuya always started it, though.
She's not as bad as he claimed.
She's smart, serious, and beautiful And she never caused any trouble.
Inspector Megure! What is it? We found these in Tatsuya Kimura's locker.
I don't see anything useful here A picture A band picture? That sure takes me back.
That's from when he and I had a band before he went pro.
But only he and this person are still in the music industry.
He wasn't the only one who left your band? That person over there Tatsuya said that person's why he wanted to quit But that person's not in that picture Look, it's this girl.
She's really changed, though.
No way Too much, if you ask me There's something written on the back! Lemme see it again! I see! But what a sad incident this is if it's true You know who did it? How?! Uh-huh.
Okay.
Got it! Cancel the investigation! Get everyone back there! Did something happen? He's back.
"He?" A great detective you know very well.
Shin'ichi Kudo.
Shin'ichi came back.
He finally came back! Shin'ichi! Welcome! Thank you all for coming! Shin'ichi? Shin'ichi Kudo must be watching with this camera! Move, Sonoko! Where are you, Shin'ichi?! Let's begin unraveling this case.
Shin'ichi! Though, what's with this song? It's Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Inspector Megure.
It's a Christmas song, it's played everywhere during Christmas.
It also stirred up the killer's hatred for the victim.
In other words, the killer is the one who Tatsuya-san requested this song for.
Yes.
Tatsuya-san's killer was his manager, Mari Terahara-san! It was you! The manager killed him?! No way Stop kidding around! I wasn't even in the room when he died.
You could've poisoned him despite your distance, simply by having him sing this song.
This was his hit song, "Bloody Venus!" Well, could you sing for us, using the mic I've prepared? There's no poison on it, of course.
Fine.
I'll sing, if that'll make you happy.
Please wait! Why aren't you removing your jacket? Tatsuya-san always took his jacket off when he sang this song.
Isn't that right, people? Y-Yes.
Well then, let's start over.
Oh, yes.
Don't forget the dance.
ikashita yatsu da ze She's one hot babe! omae no koto sa I'm talkin' about you! Ah, soba ni ite okure Oh Bloody Venus Ah, stay by me, oh bloody venus! Wow! She's good! Of course she is.
She used to sing with Tatsuya in my band.
ushinaitakunai no sa omae e no ai I don't wanna lose the love I have for you Ah, kanjite okure Ah, feel it with me The manager? I love ya! Well, are you satisfied? Yes.
Now try eating the food I've prepared.
You mean this? Just as Tatsuya-san did.
Pick whatever you'd like.
Assuming you can, that is.
I'd rather not.
I touched him after he collapsed! His hands and clothes had poison on them! I could've gotten some on my hands then, too! Then please check her jacket, Inspector.
Her jacket? Same goes for the jacket! I put it on after touching Tatsuya! If there is poison on it, that doesn't mean No.
It's not poison I'm looking for.
A lighter! Yes.
That's Tatsuya-san's missing lighter.
In other words, that's not her jacket: she switched hers with Tatsuya-san's to dispose of the evidence! She wiped poison on the inside of the left elbow so that some of it would get on his shirt underneath when he put the jacket on.
All that remained was to have him sing Bloody Venus.
During his dance, he threw the jacket off and touched his left elbow with his right hand.
Afterward, he died of poisoning when he ate.
But why would she do that? Her motive is in the photograph on the table.
It's from when Tatsuya-san was in Sumii-san's band.
What about it? There's no one else in the picture She is there, Inspector.
In the center of the picture, with Tatsuya-san.
Can this be?! That's right.
That picture of her is the very motive behind this murder! Don't tell me you That's right! I had plastic surgery! For Tatsuya! I fell in love with him back then, when we were on the band So when he went pro Come with me, Mari! You can be my manager! I was so happy when he said that.
I thought he felt the same way about me So I got the surgery to be worthy of him But his attitude suddenly changed after I got it.
He'd constantly call me ugly.
He even had me sing the Rudolph song earlier! That's why he requested the song for you? He made me his manager just to insult me! And I couldn't forgive him.
I couldn't forgive him because I loved him! You're wrong, Mari-san.
Tatsuya-san had been in love with you for quite some time.
Nonsense! What would you know about Mari! He's telling the truth.
Inspector.
Can I have that photo? This is a love song he wrote about you.
"I want to talk with the real you" This isn't true! It's true.
Those were the lyrics to his newest song.
He always talked about you, you know.
Why's Mari so self-conscious? Why'd she change her face for me?! But he always treated me like He wasn't good at expressing himself I guess he wanted the old you back.
It can't It can't be I see I'm waiting for her to come back.
Sorry, Mieko.
I already have someone I like.
The girl he liked was the manager Tatsuya! Tatsuya! Tatsuya! The combination of a man unable to express his feelings and a woman who hid hers, brought forth a sad ending in her weeping and tears.
Only her photograph sadly smiled.
