A COLDFUSION & BAARO RELEASE As long as modern-day crimes involve people, there are no unsolvable mysteries! Today's case is about Conan's origin! And the detective from out west makes a reappearance! He sees the single truth for what it is, and looks like a kid but has the mind of an adult.

Yes It is noteworthy as the very first story Sherlock Holmes appears in! "The Red-Headed League" is my favorite! Mine's "The Sign of Four"! Oh! That one was internationally acclaimed! Impressive, my boy! You can read kanji? Yeah Gimme a break.
Why do I have to go on this stupid tour? Because Conan-kun applied for you without asking And then I was unlucky enough to get picked Ugh.
Which story do you favor? Who, me? Yes.
Good question.
I'd say I prefer "And Then There Was One.
" That's "And Then There Were None.
" Toshiaki Fujisawa (47) Train Station Attendant And that novel was written by Agatha Christie, Nanako Shimizu (24) Librarian not my beloved Conan Doyle-sama.
My word.
Ikuo Kawatsu (25) High School Gym Teacher Who let this amateur on the tour? Talk about a real party pooper I'm supposed to live with these jerks for three whole days?! These aren't the only guests.
Hitomi Iwai (24) Lodge Employee As we speak, the tour director is in another car, taking the other guests back to the lodge! Oh man Oh, come on.
The more the merrier! I'll give you merrier! Ouch! Welcome, everyone, to the Mycroft Lodge! I'm Kanaya, the director of this tour Hiroyuki Kanaya (51) Lodge Owner and this lodge's owner! Each one of you here today is a superior Sherlockian that I have carefully selected.
Are you sure you were careful enough? It seems a complete amateur who knows nothing about Holmes is among us.
Oh? Is there really? Maria Toda (43) Fortuneteller Over there.
That mustached man.
Oh, my.
That's it.
I'm out of here.
Please wait, Mouri-san! This man I've brought here today is none other than the great, modern-day detective that compares with our beloved Holmes— Kogoro Mouri-san, right? I know who he is.
I've seen him many a time on TV and in the papers.
He certainly appears to have a superior intellect, Kento Togano (22) University Student Logic Studies Club President but he clearly doesn't compare with Sherlock! Certainly not.
Ayako Oki (21) University Student Logic Studies Club Member In a real contest, you probably wouldn't even begin to compare to him! I can't let them get away with saying that! Now, now.
You're being compared with Holmes; it's to be expected! You shut up! I refuse to lose to a stupid fictional character! Besides, this is all because you signed me up for this tour! Conan-kun! Conan?! Oh! Your name's Conan?! Truly?! I like it too! Isn't it a great name?! It's magnificent! I guess I didn't need to worry after all.
Conan-kun's usually cool and strangely un-childlike.
But as I look at that innocent face of his, I feel relieved.
But Conan-kun's fascination with Holmes is almost the same as his! His? You know who! He's snobbish and arrogant, a mystery nerd, a Holmes freak, and is tone-deaf, but a superb high school soccer player, and the guy who ran off during our contest the other day before I could recoup my losses Shin'ichi Kudo, right? Hattori-kun! You're a Holmes fan too?! Of course not! The reason I applied for this tour was 'cuz I thought I might find Kudo.
Besides, Ellery Queen's much better than Conan Doyle On second thought, maybe Doyle's better! It's growing late, so we'll call it a night.
Breakfast is tomorrow morning at 9:00, lunch at 1:00, and dinner at 8:00.
And then after dinner is the annual super-difficult mystery quiz! And those who get a perfect score on the quiz will be presented with Conan Doyle's greatest work which brought Sherlock Holmes into this world— a first-edition copy of "A Study in Scarlet!" However! First, I must see proof of how devoted you are to Holmes! Proof? What my maid is passing out right now is the Holmes Cult Test of 1000 Questions! You have until dinner tomorrow evening to turn it in.
Only those who get over 990 correct will be able to participate in tomorrow's quiz.
Just to be safe, if you have a cell phone or any Holmes-related literature, please hand them over to my maid now.
There's no point in trying to hide them! Placed throughout the lodge to watch over you are security cameras and listening devices! If you're caught cheating, you will be asked to leave at once! Hey, now.
Do I have to take that test too? Certainly not; you're a special guest.
All I ask is that you give us a lecture later on Hey.
If I get over 990 right, can I be in the quiz too? Sure Let's see "What was the exact date that Holmes fell to the bottom of the valley with Professor Moriarty?" May 4th, 1891.
This is actually pretty easy! Next one "Write down the entire code from 'The Dancing Men' exactly as it appeared.
" Conan-kun Are you still up? It's 4 o'clock, you know.
Ugh.
No TV, no phones, no newspapers On top of that, there's not even any air-conditioning, despite this heat! A single security camera is all there is.
This is the best! That was great! The owner hasn't shown up at all, has he? Go get him and start grading the tests already! But I've been told to entertain you all until he comes Kudo ain't here.
I shouldn't have come on this tour Damn it! I've had enough of this! I'm going to my room! Sir! Sounds like the rumors were true He was lying when he said he would give away that first-edition copy.
He finds fault in people's answers every time, and makes it so nobody ever wins.
He only holds this tour to show off that book of his! Sorry, but I'm going to sleep too.
Same here.
Um! This is ridiculous.
I'm going to bed too.
What now, Conan-kun? I'm going to stay here.
Oh, man.
I'm at my limit, too.
Come on, Kento.
Let's go back to our room, too.
Be patient! Making a move at a time like this would mean defeat! Huh? Isn't that the car we came in? That's the owner! He's driving! See, the mystery quiz is finally starting.
That's my Kento.
Wait! There's a cliff there! Oh no! It's speeding up! Hey, Mister! What're you doin'?! Stop the car before you drive off! There's a blanket on the car's panel! And what's that sound?! It's not the engine! Hey! Mister! I'm talking to you! What? The owner's dead?! Yes.
He drove off the cliff just now before our very eyes! That can't be! Why would he do that?! It was a suicide.
He probably didn't want to part with his first-edition book.
No, this just might've been a murder! Someone put him to sleep or killed him in advance, sat him in the car seat, and put the car in drive to make it move forward automatically.
The killer most likely did all of that inside that garage.
Then does that mean one of us is the killer?! Yes, something like that.
That may be, but the car sped up at one point! There was also a strange hissing sound coming from inside! It wasn't the engine! Oh, that must have been the air conditioner! The AC was set to on, so when the engine was started it kicked in by itself! At any rate, the body is unrecoverable.
Our only choice is to contact the police and wait.
But the owner took all our phones They must be in his room! Oh? What are you looking at that tire track for? Just looking for something Ow! Not you too, Hattori-kun? Don't look at me! I was just checking to see if the AC was really on or not! And then I run into this kid again— Wait a minute! He also collided with me when I was looking for evidence during that previous incident! It's too dark to see well, huh? Yeah How's this, young detectives? Thanks Much obliged The phones have been demolished! Who would do such a thing?! The first-edition book is gone too! Damn it! I've had enough! Let's take the remaining car and get out of this place— Pointless.
The car in the garage had its gas tank punctured and all the gasoline has leaked out! On top of that, the battery's been removed.
That car's not going anywhere! You can't be serious! It would seem the owner was killed by someone, Detective.
What kind of trick the killer used to speed the car up is a mystery, but the fact that we're trapped here means that the killer still plans to continue this murder drama! Whatever the case, the killer is in this room.
If we properly investigate we'll uncover them soon enough! Oh, yeah! The security cameras might have recorded something! I'm sorry.
Those aren't real.
He puts them up every year for this tour.
With thumbtacks.
Thumbtacks? Even so, we know it was around 3:30 when the killer put the owner in the car and sent him on his way.
And that it was impossible for the five of us who had been in the living room for several hours prior to have done it! Hold on a second.
So the killer was one of us five who weren't in the living room?! Please refrain from counting me! Hey.
Did you find what you were looking for earlier? No, not at all I see.
Ayako? I just figured out both the killer's identity and their trick.
Along with conclusive evidence.
What?! I'll give you 10 minutes.
If you don't wish to hear your name from my mouth then you'll come clean before then.
Ayako! Where are you going?! The bathroom.
Are you crazy? The killer might go after you if you're all alone! Oh, but you'll protect me, won't you? Hey! Wait! Your big reputation's on the line, huh? She's probably bluffin'.
No! She must have found a clue we don't know about yet! Yeah, that must be it.
Now that you mention it, Ayako-san was acting odd this afternoon.
I ran into her on the way back to my room after lunch.
But when she saw me, she quickly hid some papers behind her.
I think it might've been the Holmes test that was passed out last night The test? Don't tell me she was cheating? Talk about low Alright! Who's the killer?! You secretly asked her, didn't you? Please tell us! She said she wouldn't tell even me and then shut herself up in the bathroom.
Damn it! How dare she taunt us! Say There were other people besides Ayako-san who skipped lunch, right? Yes.
Just Kento Togano-san and Nanako Shimizu-san.
At any rate, the fact that she's suspected of cheating means that Ayako knew from the very start that those security cameras were mock-ups! Hey.
Did Ayako-san come to your room this afternoon? No.
I did the rest of the test in my room, but nobody came.
Which means she did see it in someone's room! Something significant to this incident! Something that one of those four alibi-less people had— —in their room! Isn't Ayako-san late coming back? Now that you mention it It's been over twenty minutes She couldn't be! Hey! Ayako-san! Ayako-san! What's all the racket?! It's rude of you to gather around the bathroom, you know! No, we were worried about you, so— We'd like you to tell us who the killer is! Oh, that? It seems I made a mistake.
I'm sorry.
Bah.
So it really was a bluff Why? Why'd she suddenly change her attitude? Damn it! And there're so many things I don't know! Huh? Where's Ayako-san? She went for a walk outside.
We tried to stop her, but she insisted there won't be any more murders.
Well, we do have all four suspects here, so Nothing will happen if we just stay still.
What was that sound?! It came from the garage! What on earth happened?! Don't tell me Ayako-san's in there! Ayako! Ayako! You moron! Jump into that and you'll only burn to death! Somebody get an extinguisher! There's one over here! Please! Somebody put it out! Otherwise that book will be— Looks like it's out.
Ayako! Where are you?! Are you there?! Ayako! What is it?! Ayako? Ayako! Ayako! Judging from her clothes and figure, there's no question it's her.
And she was perfectly fine just a short while ago Come to think of it, she did say she figured out who the killer was So the killer killed her to keep her quiet? But I believe all the suspects were in the owner's lodge when the fire erupted in this garage.
Then who set it? It wouldn't just start by itself No, there is one person who could have done it! The owner! He drove off the cliff, but wouldn't everything fit if he were still alive?! Yes! If it had been a dummy or something in the car, then There was a novel like that Nope.
It was the owner, in the flesh.
I saw him too! I don't think there's any question about it! Then who the hell did this?! Somebody's just killed Ayako! Calm down! In any case, it's painfully clear that the killer is not one of us 10.
For now, let's retreat to the house and wait until morning.
Let's stay in the living room.
As if I'd ever mistake a person for a dummy! But all the suspects were in the lodge Could someone have put a time-activated detonator in the garage? No, there was nothing of the sort! Then how did the killer start the fire?! We don't know that, so that's why we're— What was Ayako-san doing in the garage, anyway? It's really coming down If this downpour keeps up, there's no leaving come morning I'm tired from staying up all night, not to mention hungry Shall I make some coffee and something cold to eat? I'll help you! I'll come too! I'd be worried if you two girls were all by yourselves.
I'll come too.
But if the owner really is the killer, why would he pretend to die and then kill Ayako-san? He's enjoying his murder! Have a look at this card! Had I not been careful I would've been killed! "If you want the book, then come to the garage at 5 AM tomorrow.
I'll put it beneath the back seat.
" It was past 4:30 when the fire started in the garage The back seat? That's where Ayako's body was! Say, where did you get this card? It was stuck in my door when I returned from dinner last night.
That's it! I figured it out! Listen, Mister! How many times do I have to say it?! The owner was dead! Can I really trust what a kid saw? What'd you say?! Judging from where Ayako-san died, it would seem that she, too, went to the garage to get the book.
Which means the only remaining mystery of the second incident is how the killer lit the garage on fire while still in the room.
And it's because of detectives like you that so many cases go unsolved How rude! My dad solves his cases every single time! He takes a sleeping-like pose whenever he analyzes things, so everyone fears him as "Sleeping Kogoro"! Right, Dad?! Sleeping? Hey! Come over here! What are you doing? Where is he when your old man starts analyzing?! Who? You know, the one who's always hangin' around you guys This kid! Conan-kun? Now that you mention it, he never is around Yeah?! Oh, but he often appears from behind my dad and helps explain his theories! From behind him? You help from behind him? I love to play detective! A power outage?! Was it from lightning?! No! It's just a blown fuse! Then hurry and reset the circuit breakers! Damn it! Now, of all times! Here, Miss.
Use this light An ice pick! What's going on?! What's that sound?! Glass.
Maid! Hurry with the lights! Fujisawa-san! How?! Dad! The window glass! Dammit! They smashed the window and escaped! No! The killer's still in here! And— And now I finally know how the killer set the garage on fire while in this room!
