You got your sun and your ocean! Still, I can't believe Conan-kun's the only boy on the beach when there's two hot girls here! How pathetic! Well, excuse me! Obviously! This is your villa's private beach! Oh, yeah! We're here to get a great tan and catch guys all summer long! You're always talking about guys, Sonoko It must be nice to know who your husband'll be! You bought that swimsuit to show Shin'ichi-kun, didn't you? That was for me?! Since I'm here, I'll get a closer look! Yuzo-san! Young girls are so nice! Yuzo Tomizawa (28) Ayako's Fiancée I shouldn't have gotten engaged yet! Oh, you! You're supposed to be in love with my sister! So he's— Yep! Yuzo Tomizawa-san, third son of the head of Tomizawa Industries! He's marrying my sister in the fall! Our two family companies are really close! Tomizawa Family Villa Suzuki Family Villa Look! Even our villas are next to each other! He saw my sister at a party and had love at first sight! You're embarrassing me, Sonoko-chan She's in our villa if you're looking for her No, I'm here to introduce her to my father and brothers! So then— They're all coming? Yeah.
My brothers arrive tomorrow, but my father should be at the villa by now.
I'll give him a call.
This is the Tomizawa residence.
We're not home right now, so please leave a message after the beep— Huh? It's the machine Do you have the time? That's weird.
He was supposed to be there at 3:00 What's wrong, Sonoko? Tetsuhara-ojisama is coming! This is no time to play in the ocean! I have to greet him! Wait! Sonoko! Oh! Dad! Oh, Yuzo! I came over here.
Ugh! I said to wait in the villa for me to bring her there! Tetsuhara Tomizawa (60) President of Tomizawa Industries I thought we might enjoy your future wife's cooking tonight! Ayako Suzuki Sonoko's Sister He sent it flying! It's gone! Three runs! Kogure sent it into the right stands in the rain! Yes! Dad.
You're sure a big Kogure fan I sure am! But you didn't have to watch him here.
I had no choice.
I'm getting bad satellite reception.
A pop fly down the center! The Falcons are on fire now! It's 9:00, so we bring you a 5-minute news break! Typhoon 11 has intensified and is moving northward from Okinawa.
As a result, many planes and boats are delayed.
The rain kept delaying the game.
Ayako-san.
Might you have a radio? It doesn't look like that game's on the radio Now, now! It'll begin soon! How about some coffee? Suzuki women are so considerate! Yuzo! You're one lucky guy! My other two sons, on the other hand Taichi, the oldest, ditched the business and became a novelist instead.
So he's still single.
Tatsuji, the middle son, joined the company but got engaged with some nobody without my consent! Stop talking bad about them! You too, Yuzo! With your stupid paintings and all! Yuzo-san! I'll be in my studio.
I have an illustration to finish.
Yuzo-san! If only he'd quit being stubborn and join the business, I'd give him a good position! It's over! The Falcons finally win 9-8 in the 11th inning! Yes! Alright! Hurray! This is the essence of Falcons baseball! Oh, look at the time.
I should get back to my villa.
Alright, Ayako-san.
I'll bring my sons over tomorrow.
Is that all right? Of course! Geez! I wonder if he plans to watch another night game tomorrow Oh, it's already 11:30.
We should— A power failure?! Looks like it.
See? The lights are out in the other villa It must've been the lightning! What is that? Someone's there! Who is that? What's he doing?! Y-Yuzo-san! Conan-kun! Stop! Conan-kun! Wait! Darn it! I lost him! Sir! Sir! Sir! What the?! I see.
So you witnessed Mr.
Tomizawa being murdered by his son Yuzo at 11:30 last night? Yes.
Ayako-san.
What's all this about? Yuzo-san! Yuzo Tomizawa?! Y-Yes Did something happen? You know full well you killed your own father! Eh?! Dad?! That's crazy! Hey! Let go! I didn't kill him! What's going on, Yuzo? Tatsuji Tomizawa (28) Office Worker Tatsuji-niisan! What's all the ruckus? Taichi-aniki! Looks like something happened! Taichi Tomizawa (28) Novelist Perfect timing.
I need an idea for a new novel T-Triplets?! Yuzo Tomizawa! You're under arrest for the murder of your father! Detective! Please wait! We did see the killer's face But we only saw his eyes and nose! We didn't know Yuzo-san had two identical twins! Which means it was one of you three I was in Okinawa last night on a business trip.
I took the first flight out and landed at Haneda 3 hours ago.
The last flight to Okinawa leaves at 8:00 PM.
I couldn't have been at the villa when it happened! Check it out! Yes, sir! I thought Okinawa was— Say, Detective.
I'm not sure I can call it an alibi, but You have two messages.
Do you have the time? That's weird.
He was supposed to be there at 3:00 That was me! I called from the beach! Hello, this is Taichi.
Here's mine.
Glad to see the Falcons won, Dad! Kogure pulled that homer to the right in the bottom of the 6th! What a batter! Well, see you tomorrow! You're certain it happened around 11:30? Yes! I had checked the clock before we saw the killer! Doesn't look like he did it! That game was only on satellite! It ended just after 11:25.
He couldn't have known how it ended unless he watched it all! Confirm that with the TV and radio stations! Hurry! Yes, sir! Say, if neither of us is the killer Yuzo's the only possibility.
B-Brother! No! I'd never kill anyone! Then where were you last night? I was in my studio the whole time.
Yes! A fellow illustrator called and woke me up! Just after 11:30! He woke you up? Yes! I dozed off! I had to pull an all-nighter to finish this job Then we'll check with him! Detective Yokomizo! About that passenger list What? My name was there, right? Yes, it was.
The issue is the time the plane landed! The plane you were supposedly on landed at Haneda 30 minutes ago! That can't be! I guess the typhoon delayed it! They said so on the news last night! Yeah, you're right! How about you tell us where you really were last night?! Tokyo! That's right! I returned to Tokyo last night! To Hiromi's place in Tokyo! Hiromi? My fiancée.
I heard she had collapsed I didn't want my dad to find out I dropped work for her, so I had someone cover for me! It's the truth! Please believe me! Can anyone vouch for this? Hiromi.
Yeah! I just mentioned how the game ended! No news programs were covering it at 11:30! I know, because I flipped channels, hoping to see that home run again! Detective Yokomizo.
He's telling the truth.
It was after midnight when TV and radio stations covered the game.
Say, are you a fan of Kogure? You were praising him on the phone! He's awesome! Only he could hit a home run into the right stands! Hit?! Explain yourself, Taichi-san! You said he pulled it to the right on the phone! Were you really watching that game?! Guess the truth's out.
So you killed your father?! Nothing of the sort! I meant that I didn't see the game on TV.
I listened to it all on the radio while playing pachinko.
I was taking a break from writing I guess the only radio broadcast was in Osaka, where I live.
He's right, only one radio station in Osaka aired that game.
Besides, I left a message at the time of the murder.
Yes, that's true Who is it?! One of those three is lying! And the victim's missing watch bugs me! Why would the killer take it? To keep the time a secret? Or— Huh? This VCR is blinking! Yeah, there was a 10-minute blackout at 11:30 last night! Oh, yeah! There was a blackout just before the murder! A blackout? Wait, this is strange! What he said is impossible! And at the time, it was— Then the watch taken from the victim was Could it be?! No doubt about it! The killer is the one telling two lies! I have to ask all three of you down to the station! But! Hey, this isn't funny! Why me? We have no choice.
These folks saw the killer's face just after the murder! One that looked just like you three! In other words, one of you killed your father! I know who did it! It's definitely the one with the strange alibi! Alright! I'll knock Sonoko out and make her a detective! What're you doing, Conan-kun?! What's with this watch?! It's— What's the matter? He was aiming a weird watch at you.
It's a toy! Dr.
Agasa gave it to me! A BB comes out if you press a button! You're such a troublemaker! I gotta use the bathroom! Sonoko?! Hey, Sonoko! I've figured it out.
I know that he killed Tetsuhara-ojisama! Not one of the three has a clear alibi! But there's one who's clearly lying! The killer is Taichi-san! Taichi-san?! Sure, kid! Interesting.
But I was in an Osaka pachinko parlor.
I don't think I could've been here then.
A pachinko parlor at 11:30? Yeah, that's right.
Don't you know that pachinko parlors can only stay open until 11:00 PM?! Yes, pachinko parlors are generally forbidden to operate past 11:00! Even in Osaka! That means you're lying! My mistake! I heard the broadcast in a taxi on my way home from the parlor Honestly?! Don't be like that.
It was a simple mistake.
Besides, I left a message when the murder took place! How do you explain that? I can! And the major oversight you made during the murder! What?! You should know; you were there! The power went out for 10 minutes at 11:30! Yes! The answering machine wouldn't work without power! Its batteries power the clock, but it can't record messages! So what's your message doing there at 11:34? But you could ask Yuzo the same thing! He said he got a call just after 11:30! You don't know anything, do you? You can still make calls during a power outage! What?! It's true.
Telephones receive power through the phone lines.
Someone must've messed with the clock to frame me— There's no telling when you'd call.
Nobody could've matched the times just right.
In other words, when the game ended, you left a message on the machine whose clock you had set ahead in advance.
Glad to see the Falcons won, Dad! As if you left the message just when the murder happened! Then you turned the clock back, and waited for your father to return.
Your father, who came next door to see the game! And that's when you killed him! But I couldn't have known when he'd return! No, you knew.
You used a transmitter to hear! A transmitter?! I bugged your villa? Then go ahead and look! There won't be any! Nobody said you bugged the house.
Isn't there something unnaturally missing from the victim? His watch! Aha! With a bugged watch, he could keep tabs on both the victim and the game! So the watch was taken to remove the evidence? That's right! Bugging the victim's watch, and breaking his satellite receiver to make him come to my villa As his son, you could easily do this! Nice theory.
I almost want to use it for a book.
But it'd be a third-rate novel.
Do you have any proof that I changed the answering machine's clock? The times match; even Yuzo's message had the right time.
You talk big for having no proof— Quit playin' around! The fake time and message on the answering machine actually prove that you're the killer! Brother! It can't be true! Yeah! This must be a mistake! You had no reason to kill Dad! Stop that, Yuzo.
I'm not the great brother you take me for.
Money.
I wanted the old man's inheritance.
So I could keep writing.
Brother! Things got tough.
I suddenly ran out of work and money I found out when I went to Dad for help He had pressured the publishers to drop each job that came my way! I guess he wanted me to quit and follow in his footsteps.
So then you— Yeah.
I used his visit here to kill him.
That's also why I sent him the bugged watch and broke his receiver.
Yuzo.
I was going to try pinning it on you.
To increase my share of the inheritance.
It was all so I could keep writing my novels But it seems I wrote a poor mystery.
To think the power would go out just then I guess fact is stranger than fiction Maybe I didn't have the skill to be a writer.
Kimi ga inai natsu tsurai asa wa unzari suru ne I'm weary of bad mornings Even if I stumble, I'll live my life in happiness tsumadzuite mo tanoshiku ikite-yuku yo Let's sally forth, toward that distant dream kuridasou oikakete haruka na yume o However far apart we are, I still know don'na ni hanarete-ite mo wakaru azayakasugiru kimi ga inai natsu In this overly vivid summer without you ano koe ano shigusa ga hirogatteku That voice, those mannerisms, they spread on out kotoba ni nanka dekinakute mo ii It doesn't matter if it can't be put into words My heart is blurred out by the overflowing sunshine koboreta hizashi ni kokoro ga nijinda Ahh, I pray slightly for a time that can never return ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotte-iru ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotte-iru Ahh, I pray slightly for a time that can never return What's with Sonoko? She's spacing out She's probably relieved Yuzo-san wasn't the killer! Uh oh.
She's staring at her arm.
Don't tell me she noticed I shot a sleeping dart in it I failed What're you talking about? That was great detective work! Detective work? Just look at my arm! It's totally white! I was supposed to get a tan and catch some guys! I know, Ran! Let's go to a tanning salon! Not now! We have to give our statements at the police station! What for?!
