—Shinigami Jin'nai" Wicked lawyer Kenzo Kuroda! I'm here to send you to Hell! Help! It's time! "Shinigami Jin'nai— A New Challenge" Does he usually fall asleep in the first five minutes?! Really, now! We were lucky to see an early screening and you fall asleep! I couldn't help it! I was up all night working! You mean drinking! But the movie wasn't that great.
Really? I liked it Well, I guess this series IS getting stale It's Shinigami Jin'nai's actor, Hayato Nanjo! Hayato Nanjo (42) Movie Actor Excuse me Aren't you the famous Kogoro Mouri-san? Yes, I'm Kogoro Mouri, the great detective! Miyuki Nanjo (37) Nanjo's Wife I'm Hayato Nanjo's wife.
Nice to meet you! That was a great movie! Gimme a break There's something I'd like to talk to you about Right in here, Detective Mouri.
This is quite a nice office! No, we couldn't find anywhere new Here you are.
Satomi-san.
This is Kogoro Mouri-san, the famous detective.
Satomi Yoshino (28) Nanjo's Manager I'm Hayato Nanjo's manager, Satomi Yoshino.
Satomi-san.
Show it to him But, ma'am! Just show it to him.
Alright What the?! "I am coming for Hayato Nanjo tonight.
—Shinigami Jin'nai" A warning from Shinigami Jin'nai?! It was in the office mailbox this morning.
Did you take it to the police? No There's no need.
It's obviously a prank! But, Honey! I told you not to do anything! Sorry, but I must ask you to leave.
But, Nanjo-san! Your wife is this worried about you Even if the letter is real, I'll protect myself! But, still! Anyway, I'm busy! Get out! Yoshino-kun.
You can leave for today, too.
Behind me is the office of Hayato Nanjo, who has received a death threat from Shinigami Jin'nai.
It's just past 9:00.
Will Shinigami Jin'nai appear as warned? The famous Kogoro Mouri-san is also present, so the tension is high! Hello.
I'm the great Kogoro Mouri.
What're you doing? OK, we're done! Take a short break! Everything will be all right.
The culprit can't make a move as long as we're here! Now, now, Mouri-san.
Tadao Ohno (45) TV Director There's no need to get excited; he's not gonna show.
What do you mean? It's obvious that Nanjo did this just to promote the movie! How dare you say that?! Please, calm down, ma'am! I'll go buy something to drink! Let's go, Conan-kun! Huh? Isn't that Satomi-san, his manager? You're right! I guess she didn't go home yet What do you think she's doing? She could watch the office from there! She's probably worried too! Let's go, Conan-kun! So Nanjo-san's the only one here this late Hey, where's Ohno-san? He went to the bathroom What do we do next? I'll go look for him What is it? Over there! Shinigami Jin'nai! Hey! Get the camera! Give yourself up! Damn! I lost him! Nanjo-san's in danger! Crap! Satomi-san! Why are you here?! I was in that burger shop when I saw Shinigami Jin'nai run inside the building! What?! Dammit! No you don't, Conan-kun! But! Conan-kun! Was that— The culprit's still on the 7th floor! I just saw his shadow! Alright! Damn, what's this tape for?! Vinyl tape? So the killer disappeared from the scene, Mouri-kun? Yeah, Inspector.
The windows are all locked from the inside, and the elevator and the stairs are the only way off the 7th floor.
But he was gone when we rushed in.
And you're certain that nobody left the building? Yes, we and the reporters were out front the whole time But what about the emergency stairs? Inspector.
The emergency stairs here meet up with the first-floor elevator and lead to the same exit.
I watched the emergency stairs, but nobody used them.
So the killer just disappeared like smoke What's wrong, Conan-kun? Doesn't it seem strange? We saw the killer standing at the window when the lights came on.
But the light switch is by the door.
How exactly did he turn the lights on? That is strange Why did the killer turn the lights on after murdering Nanjo-san? And— Why on earth did the killer leave this vinyl tape behind? Most likely so we would trip and get tangled up in it, allowing him to make his getaway.
But you're the only one who tripped on it! "Nanjo-sama, please look over the article.
" An article check request Just about the time Shinigami Jin'nai appeared in the park But isn't this— Alright, you! Don't touch that! That's an interview that's being published in a magazine next week.
Nanjo-san was waiting for it to arrive tonight.
Let go of me! Inspector! This shady character was lurking about! How rude! I'm no shady character! Ohno-san! Where have you been?! I returned from the bathroom to find everyone gone, so I was looking around the park! So it was you who killed my husband! What are you talking about?! Come to think of it, you're the only one without an alibi! You were still bitter about the accident 3 years ago so you killed him! That's insane! What is she referring to? I work on an entertainment show now, but I was once a movie director.
Until the accident 3 years ago during the filming of Shinigami Jin'nai The designated stuntman never showed up that day We have no choice.
We'll do it without him.
I dunno, Nanjo.
It's too dangerous! You can handle it, right, Kitano? Hiroyuki Kitano (28) Movie Actor Up-and-coming actors need to be able to do this much.
Yeah Director! I'll do it! But! Kitano-kun had agreed, so filming began upon Nanjo's insistence.
The car flipped over and exploded.
Kitano-kun was killed.
I took full responsibility and gave up the director's chair.
I did resent Nanjo.
But there's someone who resented him much more right there! After all, she was Kitano-kun's lover! Is this true?! Yes.
Hiroyuki Kitano was my lover.
I worked for the same agency as a second-rate action movie actress.
Yes, it was a terrible accident! But I don't blame Nanjo-san for it! Satomi-san was out front with us when Nanjo-san was killed! Oh yeah! I caught Shinigami Jin'nai on tape in the park! What?! So that should show— There's a VCR on the 6th floor! I'll go set it up! Come to think of it, why did the killer show himself in the park? The same with the window locks— there must be some reason! It came from downstairs! Come on! The stairs are faster! Shinigami Jin'nai just— What?! And when you got off the elevator, the emergency exit was open.
Then Shinigami Jin'nai came out of the office, fired, and ran off? Yes That's odd.
It's exactly one hour since Nanjo-san was killed.
Did he hide in the building and avoid police detection the whole time? And why did he shoot, anyway? Satomi-san was alone.
Running off would've been far safer than firing and attracting attention! Inspector.
We finished examining the murder scene.
Good work.
Did you find the bullet? No.
It probably flew outside through the emergency exit.
In which case, finding it will be difficult.
Inspector.
The video's all set.
Let's have a look.
Why's this one by itself? It's still warm.
And it's not rewound! Could it be?! You shouldn't touch other people's things.
I'm sorry! Aha! I've figured out the killer's trick! But I need more proof! That's it! That fax! Hey, Conan! Where're you going? Just as I thought! No question about it! That person is the killer! Hey! Conan! Quit running around! Look at this! Huh? This is just that fax What's so big about it? Hello? Right.
Inspector.
It's Mouri-san.
Thanks Hello? Mouri-kun? What?! You solved the mystery?! Yes.
The killer didn't disappear.
He was never there in the first place! What?! What does that mean? It means Nanjo-san was already dead when we got to the building.
But Conan-kun and the others saw the killer in the window! That was a trick the killer set up.
Trick?! I'll demonstrate it for you.
Have everyone come back upstairs.
Please bring some vinyl tape and fishing line as well.
Vinyl tape and fishing line? It seems everyone's here, so I'll begin.
First, after murdering Nanjo-san, the killer cut the lights and placed the vinyl tape on the window in a zigzag manner to create the shape of a person.
Next, he affixed the fishing line to the area between the elevator and the outer door.
He then wrapped the line around the light switch in the office, and tied the end to the tape roll on the window.
All that remained was for someone to call the elevator down The light made it look like someone was in the room.
The tape came undone when the line was pulled, making it look like the person was crouching.
When pulled far enough, the tape roll caught on the elevator, and then the line snapped, leaving the roll behind.
But what about the gunshot? That was a cassette tape recording.
A cassette tape? Yes.
The killer shot Nanjo-san with a silencer-equipped gun, set up the elevator trick, took the stairs to the 6th floor, and put a tape with a gunshot on it in the stereo.
There'd be no way to make certain the gunshot was heard below The killer added 15 minutes of silence to the start of the tape and used that time to appear in the park as Shinigami Jin'nai and lure us to the building.
The killer then met up and heard the gunshot with us to create an alibi.
Hold on a second! Does that mean the killer is— Yes! The only one capable of pulling off this trick was you, Satomi Yoshino-san! But what was the second gunshot for? The second gunshot wasn't meant to happen.
Yoshino-san didn't realize the stereo was set on auto-rewind.
As it was a 60-minute tape, the same gunshot rang out one hour later! When you went downstairs to set up the VCR, you probably recovered the fishing line! Then the gunshot suddenly played! Surprised, you quickly hid the tape and came up with a lie.
There's no proof! But there is.
Inspector.
Have a look at the faxes.
Alright One of the pages should have bloodstains on it.
That fax came in just as the murder was taking place.
Here it is! In other words, the time on the page with bloodstains is the real time Nanjo-san was murdered.
We heard the gunshot at around 10:15.
That makes it 15 minutes before then.
There should be a gunshot on that tape you took from Conan.
Plus, Shinigami Jin'nai could move so nimbly in the park because you used to be an action movie actress.
You're right.
I killed Nanjo.
To get revenge on him for killing Hiroyuki three years ago! But that was an accident I thought so too at first! But then I found Hiroyuki's diary.
The week before the accident, there was talk of him replacing Nanjo as Shinigami Jin'nai! I joined Nanjo's agency as a manager to learn the truth about his death! And then a month ago, Nanjo got drunk and divulged everything! Hey, Yoshino.
Remember that kid who died three years ago during the filming of Shinigami Jin'nai? Yes.
Didn't he get in an accident while doing his own stunt? Accident, huh Accident, indeed Here's something interesting.
I lied to the stuntman so he wouldn't come that day.
The kid was a beginner but thought he could steal my role! You know what this is? No.
What is it? My good luck charm.
A bolt that keeps a car's front wheels in place.
What?! That means— That's right! He didn't wait for an accident to happen! He killed Hiroyuki himself! I wrote the letter to use the media as an alibi.
When I advised using it to promote the movie, Nanjo readily agreed.
The rest was as you said.
Kimi ga inai natsu tsurai asa wa unzari suru ne I'm weary of bad mornings tsumadzuite mo tanoshiku ikite-yuku yo Even if I stumble, I'll live my life in happiness kuridasou oikakete haruka na yume o Let's sally forth, toward that distant dream 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 koboreta hizashi ni kokoro ga nijinda My heart is blurred out by the overflowing sunshine ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotte-iru Ahh, I pray slightly for a time that can never return ahh mou modorenai toki o chiisaku inotte-iru Ahh, I pray slightly for a time that can never return Shinigami Jin'nai versus Detective Kogoro Mouri.
Looks like Shinigami Jin'nai lost completely.
Of course he did! The word "unsolvable" isn't in Kogoro Mouri's dictionary! And who do you have to thank for that? NEXT EPISODE Damn it! We'll just have to bust it down! Eh?! None of their things came out positive?! The one behind this manipulated the victim in this empty office and poisoned him! As if by magic! Next Conan: The Finance Company President Murder Case Next Conan's Hint: Toilet Look forward to the next episode! Next time, it's really tough! That guy smells.
Sorry.
