OK! So cool! It's the real Gomera! He truly is incredible! He looks so strong! It's been a while, Agasa! Oh, Mikami-kun! Are these the ones who wanted to watch? Yeah.
Who's he? This is Director Mikami-kun, my friend and creator of Gomera! Movie Director Daisuke Mikami Nice to meet ya, kids! Say, would you like to see Gomera close up? Can we?! Yeah, it's break time for a while.
All right! These buildings are tiny! Hey, look at that! Gomera's back is open! A person was born from Gomera! That's just a suit.
They film it to make it look like the monster is rampaging throughout this miniature city.
These buildings sure are well-made Keep your filthy hands off, you brats! Artist Ryota Adachi Wreck the set and you'll pay dearly! Director! Do something about these kids! Now, now Want me to watch them for you? Gomera Actor Shugo Matsui I don't have any scenes until this afternoon.
I appreciate it, Matsui-kun.
He's a nice guy! Gomera is on kids' sides! Gomera always rampages because of bad adults, after all! And it's Emera the fairy who quiets Gomera's rage.
Actress Tomomi Sakaguchi Emera? The ring fairy who comes out only when there's trouble?! That's right! Yeah, right! Emera's this tiny! She looks just like her.
But isn't she a little old? Hush, you! This is a nice staff you have.
Yes.
They all love Gomera, and they're like a family that's worked with Gomera for 10 years.
That will end this year.
Monster movies are childish.
Their time is over.
Movie Producer Osamu Kamei Worn-out music and tedious direction.
Over-expensive sets and special effects.
The fairy that was 14 when she debuted is now 24.
It's time to end this.
Ah, yes.
I hear yesterday's rush film is done.
Go watch it in the screening room.
You're not going to watch? No.
Say, want to grab a bite, Tomomi-kun? There's still the matter to discuss.
No.
I'll pass.
What matter to discuss? It's about his next movie.
He asked me to be the leading role as a policewoman.
How can he blame people and then ask something like that?! What's to complain about? At least you got some work.
We're left out in the cold.
Right, Matchan? No, he asked me to be the villain So it's just me? Whatever.
Let's go check out the majestic Gomera.
Alright, Matsui-kun.
The kids are all yours.
.
STOREROOM #1 Awesome! There's so many monsters! They're all the ones that Gomera beat! Hey! Sorry! I didn't think you'd be that scared! What's with that hand? It's Gomera's hand.
We use it in close-up shots.
There's also a remote-controlled face.
Wanna see it? Of course! Just a sec while I get it! Alright! Are Gomera movies really going to end? They're so good He did say they cost lots of money It must be the food costs! Gomera is big! What a bunch of simpletons Matsui-san! What happened to your leg?! It's Gomera! Gomera?! He was in here! And he stabbed me with a knife! Where is he now?! He ran out that door! Hey, wait! Kids! What is this place? You can see the studio Oh? There's someone there! Isn't he that producer? Matsui-kun? Hey! Conan-kun! Hold on! It's no good, he's dead! Footprints? He must've escaped through that door! Hey! Conan! Not you too! Did you see Gomera?! Right there.
I just ran into him Wait! Was that Matsui-san? Gomera's not here.
That can't be! There's no place to hide up here! Maybe he flew off? Genta-kun Gomera can't fly.
It's on the ground? Damn it! A suicide? It's empty! That's impossible! Pardon my asking, but where were you at around 11:30 a.
m.
? I was on the first floor of the studio, doing the final continuity checks alone.
So no one can vouch for you? No You're really sweating a lot.
Yes, I tend to sweat quite a bit.
When you entered this storeroom, the killer was in here, already in the Gomera costume? Yes Is he all right?! I gave him emergency treatment, but he needs to get to a hospital.
He couldn't have killed him with that leg When the incident occurred, why where you here, Sakaguchi-san? I wanted Producer Kamei to see the rush of the final Gomera movie.
It was really well done, so Rush? Unedited film that was just recorded.
To think something like this would happen Say, Tomomi-san.
You saw the back of the person in the suit, right? Yes, but I'm not sure who it was.
But the way they ran The way they ran? Yes.
They had a hard time running.
Like they weren't used to wearing it But of course.
That would be the case for everyone but Matsui-kun.
In other words Matsui-san, Sakaguchi-san and Mikami-san.
Other than you three, everybody was in the screening room.
That's right.
I watched the rush too.
Who are you? Agasa! The genius inventor who lives next door to Shin'ichi-kun! Oh! I've heard about you! You're always making oddball inventions! - Why, you - Now, now! So was the entire staff really in the screening room? She's the only one that left.
Wait, there was another who snuck out Who was it?! I think it was I told you, I don't know how this paint got here! It was him! Why would I put paint in the middle of the set when the taping was gonna be this afternoon?! Yeah, I snuck out.
I noticed something on the set when I saw the rush.
Don't tell me you suspect me? Adachi-san only snuck out for 4 or 5 minutes.
Four to five minutes? That's not enough time to don the suit, kill someone, and return to the screening room after running up the stairs.
Who put this paint here anyway? You did.
Don't you remember? You left it after the morning rehearsal.
Oh, yeah! I completely forgot! Oh, geez Say, why didn't Matsui-san watch the rush? Don't ask me.
All he said was that he didn't wanna watch.
Don't say that.
He's one of the ones who wanted to quit Gomera Matsui-san was? Yes.
I hear he often vented to the producer about being sick of Gomera and wanting to do normal roles.
I don't get it.
Where could the killer have disappeared to? We followed the footsteps around the corner and up the stairs Hey, Conan-kun.
Let's make a grave for Gomera.
And then through that door to the roof Come on, Conan-kun! His grave! Shut up! This ain't the time for that! Don't be getting mad like Gomera! Like Gomera? Look at this! There's no tail mark on the steps! That's proof that Gomera went up the steps angry! Because his tail sticks up when he gets mad! Hold on! Maybe Hey! What's the deal, Conan?! Hey! What do you see? What is it? Come on, Conan! Conan-kun! All right! I figured out the trick! STUDIO A .
Why won't you let us in the studio?! This is no place for kids! That way! Yikes, there's one here too.
Say Hey! We forgot something! Hey! What are you all doing here? Oh, Conan-kun! We're about to take Matsui-kun to the hospital.
It looks like he won't be able to play Gomera with that leg.
Forget Gomera, he can't even play a person So? Have you solved the case? No, I still don't know who did it.
Why did the killer attack Matsui-san in this storeroom? Maybe the killer came to get the knife but was spotted by Matsui-san? Movie props can't kill people Wait a minute! In that case, only one person can be the killer! What's wrong, Shin'ichi? Can't find my sleep gun Doc! What do you say to— Inspector.
We're going to take Matsui-kun to the hospital.
Not so fast! The one responsible is in this very room! Come again?! Hey! Just move your lips to what I say! Oh, come on! Let me have some glory too! Alright, Agasa-san.
If you know who did it, then please explain how the killer disappeared from the roof.
Special effects! You know those holographs? I bet the killer was one of them the whole time! Right? What?! I ran into the killer in the hall, and even saw them escape! Oh, uh, forget what I said! The truth is— It was a trick.
An extremely simple one, at that.
Tomomi-san and the children only saw the killer until he or she turned the corner! There's no telling if the killer went up the stairs or not! But there were footprints on the stairs.
Yes Hey! Follow my voice! Right The killer placed the footprints on the stairs in advance! Hardly anyone goes onto the roof.
It wouldn't be strange for everyone to overlook that stairway! Gomera's legs were probably the only parts used to make them.
As proof of this, there is a tail mark in the hall but not on the stairs.
The killer quickly removed the suit in front of the stairs, went down in the opposite direction, entered a room, lit the suit on fire, and dropped it to the ground.
Now I see! Oh, uh But would they be able to make the footprints in advance without knowing the color the paint on the set would be? Right, Adachi-san? Yeah, I just happened to put that paint there before the incident.
Hey, now, that doesn't hold up It's only natural it doesn't.
Because Tomomi-san and Adachi-san are lying to cover for the killer! Lying?! That paint was placed there by the killer to use for the footprint trick! So these two know who the killer is?! Adachi-san probably only followed Tomomi-san's lead, but she should know! She probably saw the killer when she bumped into him in the hallway.
So who exactly is the killer? The killer was among the four who weren't in the screening room or who left the screening room at some point.
Adachi-san was only gone for Tomomi-san saw the killer with the children; she's innocent too.
That leaves Director Mikami and Matsui-san.
Hey now, Matsui-san is seriously injured, and Mikami-kun is my best friend! And therefore this comes as a shock! Yes! The killer is What're you doing, Conan-kun? You're bothering me! Shoo! Bothering you? Shoo? Oh, just a noisy fly! Shoo! So, who is the killer? The killer is you, Matsui-san! Get real! He couldn't escape in that suit with his injury! Assuming he really acquired that injury before the murder.
You're saying his injury was— Yes.
After the murder, he dropped the suit, returned to the storeroom, and stabbed himself with another knife to deceive us! But the children saw his injury before the murder! That was probably fake blood.
This is a movie set; it would be easy to come by.
But after they saw his injury, they followed Gomera out to the studio! There's only one way to the studio from the storeroom.
Where exactly did Matsui-san pass ahead of them? Murder Scene - Studio The studio is right next to the hallway door.
He probably entered once the children left.
He then donned the suit and murdered Producer Kamei.
This trick would need witnesses to follow the paint footprints.
I see.
So he chose these children who couldn't follow as quickly.
Children are bundles of curiosity; tell them not to go and they'll go.
The suit was lit on fire to destroy sweat traces inside it.
What proof is there that Matsui-san did it? The knife he used to stab himself is in the storeroom prop box.
It was probably the only place to hide it; he couldn't walk after stabbing his leg.
There's one more thing- the shirt he's wearing! His shirt? The killer ran off at full speed with the suit still on.
The shirt would naturally be soaked with sweat! But his shirt has no sweat stains Of course not.
Because he changed it.
He changed it?! Conan-kun can prove this! Here I am! Remember when Ayumi-chan spilled juice on your shirt? But that's weird.
There's no stain here.
Where did you change clothes? I thought you couldn't move with your stabbed leg? Are you sure you're not mistaken, little boy? Maybe the juice was spilled on the floor instead? But I really— Are you really sure? Try hard to remember! Please! Little boy! It's over, Tomomi-chan.
He's right.
I was really sweaty, so I changed shirts.
The shirt is inside my bag.
All right! Check it at once! Why would you kill Producer Kamei? Didn't he give you work in his next movie? That had never entered my mind; Gomera was all I thought about.
But weren't you the one who wanted to quit Gomera the most?! That's something that Producer Kamei made up.
I thought it was strange how everyone encouraged me with sad smiles.
I can't believe I only learned of his lies two weeks ago I hastily negotiated with him, but he said there was no turning back as he had already announced this was the final Gomera movie.
Everyone'll have long forgotten that rubber freak in a year! Why didn't you talk with us?! I couldn't.
It was too hard after seeing everyone working hard one last time But I regret nothing.
Now Gomera won't have a final death scene.
I only feel bad about making the children see that.
Say, Tomomi-chan.
Did you really see him in the suit from behind? No, I didn't see anything.
He disappeared so quickly.
Then how I could tell by his movements, without having to see inside.
After all, he's been my partner for these past 10 years.

The last scene was connected with all the previous films and Gomera's death scene was cut.
Gomera can now live forever on the screen.
Crowds hold their breaths as they watch the powerful visuals and plot! Yet, Gomera's war cry sounded especially forlorn to me as it echoed throughout the theater NEXT EPISODE When Teraoka-san tried to arrest Matsuyama-san, the gun went off! Was this an accident?! There's one thing we kept from the media— we found three sets of fingerprints on the gun.
Who does the third set belong to?! If the gun's owner did as I think, then Next Conan: The Third Set of Fingerprints Murder Case Next Conan's Hint: Video Cassette Case Look forward to the next episode! Next time, it's another really unique case! I'm looking forward to next week!
