This is all because of the doc's phone call Eh? Izu? Yes! Three days and two nights at a hotel in Izu! And for free, too! Let's go! Free sounds good to me.
What am I doing in a place like this? I should be out looking for those men in black who shrunk me.
But the occasional break is nice What's wrong? You should come swim, too, Conan-kun! Come on, quick.
Eh, why not? Only half has been paid?! Yes.
A reservation for three in the name of Agasa, right? There's no mistake.
That's impossible! Check again! What's the matter, Dad? Okay, you! Only half of the hotel's cost has been paid! What's wrong with paying half then? I didn't bring that much money with me! Come to think of it, the doc did say Is it really free?! In your case, Shin'ichi-kun, it's as good as free.
In my case? What do you mean? Just listen.
My scientist friends and I like to communicate via PC lately.
One of them found an interesting tour on an online forum and invited me to apply for it.
It's called the "Izu Mystery Tour".
Mystery tour? Luckily, my friend, his granddaughter, and I all were chosen! But his granddaughter caught a cold, so now I'm offering you our spots.
Six parties will attend— ten people in all, including you.
Everyone gets a 50% hotel discount.
But the tour organizer is one of the other seven people, and whoever figures out who that is gets to stay for free and wins floppy disks containing a certain program.
Though you wouldn't have a use for the program So how do I look for this mysterious organizer? Don't worry.
We received the names and room numbers of all the attendees.
And the organizer's supposed to play a certain character and cause an incident during the tour.
A certain character? Yes, a character you know very well from novels.
His name is the Night Baron.
You're him, aren't you? That's how long you took to respond to my question.
This was most informative.
I'm Shiro Kon'no, Room 2002.
Shiro Kon'no (28) Bank Employee Pleased to make your acquaintance.
You'll never find the Baron's identity that way.
You're the one who answered in 2.
86 seconds Tokio Ebara (32) Computer Programmer Ebara-san, Room 2101.
Do you ever shut up?! Gen'ichiro Kaneshiro (74) Computer Company Owner Exposing oneself when caught off-guard is the way of man.
Isn't that right, Shizue-san? Shizue Hayashi (56) Kaneshiro's Butler Yes, sir.
Kaneshiro-san, Room 2001 It took you 6.
29 seconds to respond.
My eyes are bad, as you can see.
I never expected you would question me That's all right.
I'll know the truth once I process this data.
But that data's incomplete.
You're still missing someone's information.
Hideko Kamijo (29) Software Company CEO Isn't that right, Mr.
Night Baron? W-What was that, Kamijo-san of Room 2102?! Add it in after my Um Yes? What is this Baron thingy? You mean you don't know?! Yeah, right.
He's just playin' innocent.
Hey, he shows up in lots of Shin'ichi's dad's novels! Yes.
The Night Baron is an elusive villain created by my father, Yusaku Kudo! He's a thief of the darkness and sometimes a crazed murderer! My father, Yusaku, hasn't revealed the Night Baron's identity yet, but either way, whoever's using his name is one these people This makes no sense.
I'm going to our room.
Dad! What about the money for the hotel?! Hold on.
There were supposed to be ten people.
With me, Ran, the old man and the other five, we're just eight.
We're missing two.
What do you think you're doing?! Come on, it's just your butt It's no big deal.
Why don'tcha come with me and fill my drinks Why, you Knock it off! What're you doing?! That's my line! Satoru Maeda (30) Jonan University Electrical Engineering Assistant What?! Are you Satoru Maeda-san?! Yes.
Ran-neechan.
Do you know him? Know? He was Japan's karate champ six years ago! He's the reason I started practicing karate! I'm Ran Mouri! I won the recent city championship! A karate champ and a city champion! I never expected to meet you here! I'm super-lucky! Who's super-lucky? Who's she? Akiko! Akiko Sayama (24) High School Math Teacher Let me introduce you.
This is my fiancée, Akiko Sayama-san.
You're getting married?! Hey! Don't take it personally.
Akiko gets jealous pretty easily You're the Night Baron, aren't you? Room 1901, Maeda-san 0.
75 seconds.
Sayama-san He's still at it.
But it's strange.
You're supposed to be two doctors and a little girl.
They couldn't come, so we came in their place.
That was my father, and he's a detective, not a doctor.
A detective?! Yes.
His name is Kogoro Mouri.
Kogoro Mouri? I've seen him in the newspapers.
Yeah, they say he's a great detective How dirty of him to send a detective instead.
Oh, come now.
We have fewer possible Barons now.
But with Kogoro Mouri here, we cannot afford to show our faults.
Sounds like Dad's famous! All thanks to me, of course.
Who's there?! Conan-kun.
Conan-kun! Let's go back to our room.
Okay Oh, that's the deal? So that's why they were shocked when I said Dad was a detective Yeah So it's basically like this If I find which of those seven is the Night Baron, we get to enjoy the Izu Beach for free.
I see.
So that's why Dr.
Agasa told Conan-kun it was free! Could be But of course! Because there's no mystery that I, Kogoro Mouri, can't solve! Gimme a break.
You were just ranting about going home 'cause you have no money.
Okay, then! I better go do my preliminary questioning! Dad's in such high spirits! What do you say we look around the hotel? Okay What's wrong, Conan-kun? Let's move on! I'm going to stay here a little longer.
Oh? Well, I'll be in the gift shop downstairs.
Okay! I'll be there in a bit! Why? Why were they all so shocked at the mention of a detective? It's just a game, right? All you get is to stay for free, so why? And that murderous glare! And then there's what the doc said and wins floppy disks containing a certain program.
Though you wouldn't have a use for the program Somehow I've got a bad feeling about this Guess I can just call him after dinner and get all the details The Night Baron! What the?! A pool! Are you all right, kid?! Damn him! He's gone! He must've changed in the toilet and then taken the stairs.
But who dressed up as the Night Baron?! Without counting me, Ran or the old man, there's seven people on this tour.
The purpose of the tour is to find its organizer among the attendees.
The organizer who would cause an incident as the Night Baron! But it's just a simple game to stay for free.
Who'd push someone off just for that?! Oh, that program? Agasa Residence What exactly is it?! No idea.
All the ad said was that it was the "ultimate program".
Oh, that reminds me.
My doctor friend mentioned something or other about a virus A virus?! It's odd, though.
He shouldn't know any more about it than I do.
Hey, doc! Don't tell me that virus is Conan-kun? Ran-neechan What're you doing?! I've been waiting at the gift shop this whole time! What happened?! You're dripping wet! I, uh, slipped and fell into the pool! That's nothing to laugh about! What's wrong with you?! But you don't seem hurt.
Go change and then we'll have dinner.
Okay! It's crowded.
What should we do? Hey! Ran! Ran! Over here! Dad! And Maeda-san and Sayama-san! What are you three doing together? Your father just finished interrogating us "You're the Night Baron, aren't you?!" and such.
Geez, Dad Akiko-san! That's a lovely dress! T-Thank you.
But be careful.
Some perverted wolf might be on the prowl.
That old perv just doesn't learn Akiko-san signed you up for this mystery tour? Yeah, Akiko's a huge fan of Yusaku Kudo's novels.
Especially the Night Baron ones.
Nobody knows more about the Night Baron than I! Even my hairstyle is the same as his! You're not the only expert on the Night Baron young lady.
I hope that's food for thought.
Now if you'll excuse me What an outfit That's why Mom ran out on you! Quit ogling her, Satoru! That is one great outfit Please stop, sir! Huh? The old perv didn't even glance at her! Maybe she's not his type? That's Kaneshiro-san, Room 2001 Looks like Shizue Hayashi-san isn't with him.
Okay! Time to do some investigating! Where are you going, Conan-kun? Just the toilet Dad! You've had too much! Say, mister, are you after the computer virus too? I'm Conan Edogawa from Room 1902.
Do you remember me? From whom did you hear about that? The people on the tour keep talking about a virus.
But I don't know why they're talking about it.
All they should know is that it's the "ultimate program" It's the name.
There was once a mysterious computer virus that infected computers at large corporations and ravaged all the data.
Naturally, it is an unstoppable and undetectable "perfect program.
" In fact, it was so elusive that the people named it "The Night Baron!" The Night Baron?! Everyone who knows computers knows its name.
I see.
And the tour organizer is also named the Night Baron! So that gives some idea as to the contents of the program! Hearing that name brings back memories.
Of my son who died four years ago Son? What's the matter, boy? Nothing! Bye, mister! Be careful, Shizue-san.
That lad is one sharp rascal.
Yes, sir.
That's Kon'no-san from Room 2002.
Looks like he's on the phone.
Wonder what he's talking about? So it was Tokio Ebara Tokio Ebara? The old perv? So he was the hacker? A hacker?! A person who steals computer data?! Yes.
And then? I want one of these someday! Don't touch Satomi! S-Satomi? It's the name of my mother who died last year! Are you alright, Satomi?! Whew, you're okay! This guy's named his PC after his dead mother! Oh? The old perv's gone! Hey, Miss! Do you know where the person who was sitting here went? He went back to his room to do something.
Oh, boy, if you know him, could you return this to him? Come to think of it, he had this necktie wrapped around his head Huh? Conan-kun! Ah, Ran-neechan Don't you "Ah, Ran-neechan" me! Always sneaking around like that Oh? Where are the others? Dad, Maeda-san and Akiko-san all went to their rooms long ago.
Oh? Looks like Dad's not back yet Come on, Akiko! Let me in already! Yeah right, you flirt! Come on, you've had too much to drink! Did something happen? She says I was eyeing the waitress You were! Geez Guess I'll go up to the top lounge until she cools off Why don't you come too, Ran-san? Just forget about her! Well, let's go! Okay Seriously? Observation Lounge The starry sky looks so pretty! Yes, but not nearly as pretty as you.
Just teasing! Oh, excuse me.
Wow, the ocean's pitch black.
Oceans sure are creepy at night! Conan-kun So, Maeda-san, when did you first meet Akiko-san? When I was a kid.
I was best friends with her older brother.
He died three years ago, though Akiko-san's brother passed away? Sounds like everyone else here Ran-neechan.
Where did the old man go anyway? I saw him earlier with a woman.
Kamijo-san from Room 2102, I believe.
I see Forgot about the other old pervert Princess Hotel 2F Pub Emerald Sorry I see, so you were married Yes.
I divorced three years ago, though.
Why would anyone divorce such a beautiful woman?! Anyway, could you tell me now? You know who the Night Baron is by now, right? I can't tell you! The hotel fee's at stake here! Oh, come on! At least a hint! Please, Mr.
Great Detective! She's got great boobs You're so stubborn! This could be one fun night! Well, guess I should get back to my room.
Yeah, get lost already! Akiko should have cooled off by now.
Plus I'd get bitten if I stay with you any longer by your little bodyguard.
Later.
Um, do you know what the virus is? Virus? Like a cold? Nevermind What kind of weird question was that? The perfect computer virus, "Night Baron".
With it, one could threaten banks or corporations out of large sums of money.
I'm sure lots of people would like to get it.
But what is the tour organizer trying to do by gathering such people?! Is it just a game?!
