Ugh.
- Good luck! - You can do it! Group #1 has just left Beika Park! What place will the Detective Boys' own Wataru-kun get? We're counting on you guys! Right! Get good shots, Mitsuhiko! You too, Genta-kun! Conan-kun! Don't get left behind! I won't! Why do I have to do this too? Kids'll be kids.
Go get 'em.
Dad! Act more enthusiastic! The shopping street has some of your biggest clients! Hi, there! Why did we accept this job?! Isn't it obvious? So the public will love us! We asked really hard for the job! What? So we asked for the job?! Got a problem with that, Conan?! Never heard of such a detective group Wataru-kun has just passed the vegetable store! Oh no! Now he can't buy a daikon! What will come of this?! We, the Detective Boys, were put in charge of recording the event.
It would later be aired on local TV, and the children would get prizes depending on their rank.
The rules are simple.
Go alone from Beika Park to Beika Shopping Street, some 500 meters away, buy the items on the shopping list, and return.
However, no parents or onlookers can talk to or help them— they can only watch.
But it's actually tough.
Some kids keep coming back to ask their mothers for help, some kids get lost, some buy toys and candy for themselves, and some spend all their time in arcades.
Kids these days! I can't watch this For sure You guys are kids too.
You can do it! His group's up! That's Hiroshi-kun; he lives in my neighborhood! He hasn't started yet Alright! Let's get 'em! He's playing by himself? What're you doing? Come on! Hiroshi-kun's items are a toothbrush, fried tofu, and a shūgibukuro.
What's a shūgibukuro? You got me.
Isn't it a bag for kings, bishops, and pawns? That's it! That's chess! shōgi Geez! Maybe you should enter too! It'd be a good match! There he goes! Let's follow! Where did he go? I don't see him anywhere He couldn't have gotten far.
This area is near your house, right? That's right.
Which means that his house is also nearby.
Maybe he— —went home?! I didn't mean that.
Hiroshi-kun is a loner, right? Yes, but So was I.
I often played alone, just like him.
In my own home, or nearby You did it! Impressive! Ayumi-chan.
Does he often play alone around here? The empty lot! He's always playing there! Let's check it out! There he is! Hiiiya! Geez, not again! He disappeared again A bicycle track! It's fresh, and suddenly gets deeper.
It must've gotten heavier.
In other words, Hiroshi-kun got on the back of it Conan-kun! Where are you going?! Wait for us! Where to, Hiroshi-kun? Let me think Bye bye! Bye! Hello! There he is! It's him! He waved and ran off Is he playing a joke on us? I don't think so An abandoned building? What was he doing here? Playing by himself again? He finally made it.
He sure is troublesome.
He's finally at the shopping street! Will he be able to do his errands? First is the toothbrush! Oh no! He has to buy the toothbrush here! Maybe he's gonna get the fried tofu first? This is hopeless.
Oh, Hiroshi-kun What the Someone cut this! What're you doing, Conan?! Let's go! Right! A stationery shop? What's he buying here? One shūgibukuro, please! Sure thing! Here you are.
That'll be 200 yen.
That's a shūgibukuro?! Wow, Hiroshi-kun! It was pure luck.
Only two left! What will he do?! Here you are.
Thank you! Hiroshi-kun! Look out! Hey! We won't make it! Alright! Go! That was close No way! I put the side brake on! That rope and this car! What's going on?! Where's Hiroshi-kun? Oh, crap! Did we lose him again?! It's because you weren't filming, Mitsuhiko! It's because you weren't, Genta-kun! What?! Is someone out to get Hiroshi-kun?! Hey! Conan! What is it?! Let's find Hiroshi-kun! This is Hiroshi's Yaiba figure! But where is he?! He finally started his errands! No! He treasures this figure.
It's weird for him to just leave it here.
Then where did he go? I don't know! But he didn't go of his own accord! He was taken! He was kidnapped! What?! By who?! I don't know! But someone tried to kill him in fake accidents! But they failed twice, so then— That's bad! He'll be killed! Let's call the police! But this is just a theory! I'm not sure they'd believe us What should we do then? First, let's find Hiroshi-kun! Then we can call the police! I hope I'm wrong, though No luck! He's not that way, either! Maybe we should go to the cops Wait! If he is being targeted, then why?! Maybe that'll tell us where he is! Genta.
Mitsuhiko.
Play back all your footage of Hiroshi-kun! Did they tape something suspicious? I didn't notice anything Me neither No! Go back a little! Go back more! Play that part again and pause it! That's it! Huh? What did you find? Look closely.
In Genta's camera, he looks like he's waving at us but in Mitsuhiko's camera— What is this? A curb mirror? So Hiroshi-kun was waving at this? Exactly.
More precisely, at a reflection of something in this mirror.
The window! Ah! Now I get it! He was waving to someone in that window! That's right.
He didn't stop here to play.
He had some kind of reason! But what does that have to do with him being kidnapped? That's what we're checking.
Looks like I'm right! Hiroshi-kun's hat! Does that mean he's inside? DANGER BUILDING PLANNED FOR DEMOLITION DEMOLITION BEGINS MAY 19, 1997 AT 1 PM NO ENTRY The demolition is today! We don't have much time! Alright! I'll go in alone Let's go, Detective Boys! Careful—the floor is fragile.
Doesn't seem to be in here Let's check upstairs! "Keep Out" We can't go any further.
That means nobody's upstairs.
We can go downstairs, though! A basement?! Do you think he's down here? Hiroshi-kun! Are you there? It's too dark to see anything Hiroshi-kun! A dead guy! Is Hiroshi-kun dead too?! It's alright.
He's alive.
An anesthetic! So he was kidnapped and brought here by the killer! But what is a dead body doing here? And why Hiroshi-kun? The killer planned to make the murder look like a demolition accident.
The first floor was fragile; if any debris fell during the demolition, the basement would be wrecked.
That was the plan.
But then Hiroshi-kun showed up.
Hello! Judging from his actions, I doubt he witnessed the actual murder.
But the killer didn't know how much he saw.
So they ran ahead to the shopping street— —but failed.
The killer eventually decided to fake his death too.
That's right.
You're pretty smart for a couple of kids.
But this is the end.
Oh no! He's going to kill us too! No way! This can't be happening! No! What's taking them so long? Hiroshi-kun isn't back yet either.
What could they be doing? Probably loitering around somewhere.
Kids'll be kids.
Let's get this done quickly.
No good.
It won't budge.
I don't wanna die down here! Mommy! Ayumi-chan! Calm down! This is all because you wouldn't call the police! But you're the one who wanted to come in here! Yeah, but— An earthquake?! No! The demolition's started! It's all over! It's hopeless! Mommy! Running water? Could it be? We might survive, guys! Stop worrying! They'll come back! Kids'll be kids! But what if something bad has happened to them?! Let's look for them! Stop pulling so hard! What's that sound? How did you Surprised? You shouldn't underestimate us! We're the Detective Boys! Too bad, Mister.
We should've been crushed along with that dead body, but thanks to the weak support struts, the basement wall crumbled.
Luckily, it led right into an underground tunnel Mister! You have another store, right? That's great! Fried tofu and one toothbrush, please! What? What's going on? Oh! That was your convenience store, wasn't it? That's right.
A dirty stockbroker tricked me, and I racked up more debt than I could ever pay off, and my family ran out on me.
It was that stockbroker that I killed.
My store was repossessed and shut down.
It wasn't as popular as stores on the shopping street— it would be quickly forgotten.
But Hiroshi-kun remembered it! He came to buy from your store for his first errand! Hello! He did The very same Hiroshi-kun that you tried to kill I'm sorry, little boy! Forgive me! Conan-kun! What're you guys doing?! A huge victory for the Detective Boys!

How boring.

Alright! Let's go, Detective Boys! What the heck am I doing? Why am I stuck doing this? NEXT EPISODE What're you looking at, Conan-kun? I was watching that apartment's balcony.
She jumped off! This was a murder! Meaning the most suspicious person is— —the guy on the phone who told her not to jump.
But how could he do it from so far away?! Next Conan: The Illustrator Murder Case Next Conan's Hint: Contact Lens Set Look forward to the next episode! Next time, a glimpse into the adult world! Wait, Conan-kun, don't look!
