I'd expect nothing less from the head of the Nagato Group, which stands equal with Sonoko's family! Oh, you know Miss Sonoko? She visited a few times when she was a little girl.
"Miss" doesn't quite fit her, though.
Why does someone that important want to see you?! He personally asked for the great Kogoro Mouri! He wants me to solve a big case! Or make sure his wife isn't cheating.
What was that?! Are you all right?! What are these holes around the pond? We plan to plant new trees here by the week's end Pardon my lateness, but I am Take Kuranosuke, the family's butler for the last two generations.
Kuranosuke Take (72) Nagato Family Butler Wow! The inside is amazing, too! The master waits on the third floor.
There sure are lots of guards Naturally.
It's a big case.
Oh? Haven't I seen him before? Huh?! Find your first love?! Me?! The great Kogoro Mouri?! Yes.
Dosan Nagato (60) President of Nagato Group My old friend assured me you could find her with lightning speed! But, you didn't need to bring me here just to ask that Too bad it wasn't a big case, huh?! Do you have any photos of this woman? No.
We met during grade school.
I don't even remember her face But lately, for some reason, I'm reminded of how lovely she was My late wife may not be happy to hear that, though I have no photographs, but I do know her name and her later whereabouts! Tell them, Hyuga-kun.
Miyuki Hyuga (26) Mr.
Nagato's Secretary Certainly.
Her name is Kotomi Akagi, from Kanagawa Prefecture.
After graduation, she married at age 29.
She and husband Kohei Yamato had one child, but all three suddenly disappeared five years later.
You sure they didn't flee by night? Unthinkable! Who's this old friend who recommended me, anyway?! That would be me.
And you are? He's the old friend I mentioned! Hattori Heizo Osaka Chief of Police Osaka's chief of police, Hattori Heizo-kun! Osaka's chief of police?! The one who's always on TV whenever something happens in Osaka?! l thought he looked familiar Wait! Does that mean— Heya, Kudo! How ya been?! Heiji Hattori?! Kudo? What? They still don't know? Of course not, you moron! By "Kudo" do you mean— I said "Kuro"! As in "thanks for your hard work"! go-kurō Oh, you have company, Father? Nobuko Nagato (39) Eldest Daughter of the Nagato Family Yasue Nagato (32) Second Daughter of the Nagato Family Oh, it's not just guests.
A vixen is here, as well.
I'm told you've been staying here recently.
What scheme are you cooking up? Come, now Now, now, Nobuko! I am unable to move! I need her to send notes to the office A fax machine could do that! But, it's not that simple Who are these gentlemen? Detectives.
Detectives?! Why are detectives here? He called them here to ask them to find his first— Nobody asked you! Hey, now You still have that filthy pen? I don't care if it's your dad's keepsake! It's creepy! Better watch out, or she'll steal your Mitsuaki-san, too! Sister! Such rudeness! I apologize, Hyuga-kun.
She's simply upset that she hasn't found a man yet Yes, I know.
I doubt she'll ever find one Well, I should return to the office.
Oh, Hyuga-kun.
I'd like to make the announcement tonight, so if you do pity my son— I don't pity him at all! This is our fate! A "bond of flames" has connected us for a long time now Bond of flames? You two were in the same kendo club? Yes, Nagato-san used to beat me down like a demon! Incidentally, Heizo.
About the matter Yes.
I had the guards double-check, but Who're you?! My son, Hideomi.
His face was burned in an accident long ago.
Hideomi Nagato (36) Eldest Son & Novelist Ever since, he's I think modern plastic surgery could fix most of it, but he's against the idea.
Mitsuaki Nagato (36) Yasue's Husband & Head of Nagato Construction Yeah, it's a happy ending, all thanks to the accident.
Right, Hideomi? Hey! Hideomi! Wait! What're you so mad for? I wish you a happy birthday, Father! Thank you! I'd appreciate it if you'd give me the title of president in return I'm just kidding! I must be getting back to Osaka Oh? You're not going to celebrate with us tonight? There's also the matter at hand It's alright.
I'll be leaving him in my place.
He's still green, but he's got good intuition.
I'm sure he'll be of use to Detective Mouri! Use? Happy birthday, Father! Happy birthday, Sir! I'd like to use this opportunity to make an announcement.
My son Hideomi and Miyuki Hyuga-san are engaged to be married! Wow! Is this true, Sir? Yes.
I've been having her stay here so she would grow used to the house! Oh, so that's why! Oh? Where is Nobuko-ojōsama going? Don't mind her! She's just the only single person left! Say, I don't see Hideomi He's probably embarrassed.
I'll go get him.
Okay, Hattori! Out with it! Out with what? The real reason you brought us here! It's not like that! I just wanted to see ya! Liar Just kidding! The truth is— Hello? This is Mitsuaki.
Could you put my father on?! He's asleep at the moment.
We're just about to leave I can't find Hideomi anywhere! Where the heck did he— Mitsuaki-sama! What's going on?! Where are you?! Right below you! Someone cut the lights and attacked me with— Hey! Are you alright?! Mitsuaki-san! What's going on?! Mitsuaki-san! Hideomi-san! We gotta stop him! No why would he Damn! It's locked from the inside! I'll get the master key! Quickly! Yes! I'll check around outside with the guards! Mitsuaki-san! What's going on?! Mitsuaki-san! Detective! Here's the key! It's empty! The outside! Damn! He used a rope to escape! But where's Mitsuaki-san?! He's there.
Down below.
So, he fell onto the fence Is it true that the killer is Mr.
Nagato's son, Hideomi-san? No! Hideomi-san didn't do it! There must be some reason He's still a murderer, whatever the reason! Give my Mitsuaki-san back But Hideomi-san would never do this Besides, we don't know he's the person we saw! Eh?! She's right.
We only saw someone with bandages on their face.
Bandages? Yes.
Hideomi-san had burn scars all over his face We saw the killer shortly after 10:00 PM, when everyone happened to be in the third-story bedroom.
"Everyone" being Me, Heiji-kun, Ran, Conan, Take-san the butler, and Yasue-san.
What did you do when they left? I stayed in the room with the president.
To think the killer prepared that grappling hook to escape There's no question that the killer used it.
It was still swaying when we checked around outside.
And where's Hideomi-san? He's nowhere to be seen We looked for him while the police were on their way.
So, Hideomi-san is clearly the killer.
That can't be! At any rate, we've found the killer's weapon, hat, and bandages.
Analysis should prove— Say! What's this on his right hand? It's like he was stabbed by something It's probably from the knife or the fence he fell on! Inspector! What is it, Takagi-kun?! The exterior security cameras show nobody leaving after the murder! So the killer's still in the mansion! - Oh, no! - Hey! The president! What?! He's Damn! It's locked! Hey! Anyone in there?! What's all the ruckus?! What's with you all? What are you doing here? I came to see what all the noise was about.
Where were you before then? I was irritated, so I had a drink in my room.
Alone? Yes.
While complaining to a friend on the phone.
It must be the alcohol, but I can't recall who it was.
Anyway, is it true that Hideomi killed Mitsuaki-san? Yes, most likely Yeah, I figured he would eventually Those two would fight every time they saw each other.
They seemed to be friends since childhood, but they were like cat and dog after the incident Incident? Yes.
There was a big fire at a nearby inn 20 years ago.
Hideomi and Mitsuaki-san, high-schoolers at the time, passed by it.
Mitsuaki-san tried to stop him, but Hideomi plunged into the flames and rescued a little girl Miyuki Hyuga, to be precise! Ah, hence the "bond of flames.
" Hideomi's face was burned as a result.
After that, he quit school, shut himself in his room, and pretended to write novels.
No women got near him, of course.
She used that to make a pass at him, get recommended as Father's secretary, and even marry into the family! That's enough, Nobuko.
Oh, you're awake? Yes, ever since everyone left the room in an uproar, though things have been fuzzy Did anything strange happen afterward?! Nothing at all.
Hyuga-kun stayed with me until Ran-san arrived.
But, this is no time to look for your first love now No, it isn't.
Please forget about that.
Tell me already! Why'd you bring me here! Ah, that? Actually, the president said he heard strange sounds last night.
Strange sounds? Yeah.
Someone sprinting through the hall in the middle of the night, and something hitting something else, lots of times! Could it have been— Yeah! Someone inside the house was doing something for tonight's murder! Me and my old man figured it was a burglar scoping the place out, so we brought in security and called you.
We thought he'd show up again tonight, but it was a life that was taken! A premeditated murder But doesn't it seem strange? That Kogoro Mouri guy you made famous was here.
The killer musta been really confident with his plan.
Or, he couldn't change his plan.
What bothers me are the killer's items that were lying by the body.
There was no need to drop the hat or bandages, never mind the weapon! And the way the killer purposely showed his face to us Almost as if to frame Hideomi-san The only one who coulda done that is Nobuko-san, who left beforehand! We then searched every nook and cranny of the mansion, but Hideomi-san was nowhere to be found.
We were all about to give up two evenings later, when Can't find him anywhere, Inspector.
What?! It's my fault Hideomi never married?! So, are you saying he held back for me?! No, I just meant that he thought highly of you Miyuki-san! Wait! Please stop! That pond is deep! But that pen is my father's keepsake! Without it, I Drain the water, quickly! Yes! Right away! This is one filthy pond Madam kept carp in it, but once she passed away Why?! Why did this have to happen?! Brother! Hideo-oniisama! What is his estimated time of death? He's been dead for approximately 1.
5 to 2 days.
Mitsuaki-san was pushed off the balcony at 10:00 the night before last, 44 hours ago.
If Hideomi-san drowned himself in this pond before we arrived, everything would fit.
However, he didn't drown to death.
We can't be sure until the autopsy, but he likely ingested poison before entering the pond.
The body didn't float up because of these rocks in his clothes.
So, Hideomi-san carried the rocks into the pond and poisoned himself?! He probably didn't want anyone to see him dead.
Still, as hostile as Hideomi-san and Mitsuaki-san were with each other, murder is a bit much It's possible.
Hideomi-sama and Yasue-ojōsama were very close, so he was vehemently against her marriage with Mitsuaki-sama.
So he couldn't stomach the idea of losing his dear little sister to his bad friend Foolish child Inspector Megure! Here's the lab report! Read it.
Right.
"The marks on the knife match the wounds on Mitsuaki-san's arm," "and the blood on the knife matches his as well.
" "The hair follicles in the hat and bandages belong to Hideomi-san.
" That reminds me, there was a meter-long grappling hook in Mitsuaki-san's jacket pocket A grappling hook?! Was the cut on his right hand from the knife, too? No, it was different What about the blood type of the saliva on the knife?! There wasn't any.
Seems it was wiped off Inspector! I found this paper in his pocket! "I'm not fit to marry you" "I choose death to atone for the sin I committed.
" This is his will! Miyuki-san! It's addressed to you! Is it Hideomi-san's handwriting? Yes, it looks like it I'll get some of his writings from his room Miyuki-san! Here's the pen you dropped in Wait— Let her be.
I'll give it to her later.
Hideomi-san This pen's really been burnt How odd.
Yeah.
This case is totally weird.
Even more unnatural is that will.
It said, "The sin I committed.
" Meaning he wrote it after the murder! He didn't have time to write a will then! Which means someone forged it or forced him to write it.
Either way, there's little doubt that someone drowned him with the will after poisoning him.
But, the only time anyone got near the pond was when we all went looking for him! In other words, Hideomi-san had been murdered before it happened! Kimi ga inai natsu I'm weary of bad mornings tsurai asa wa unzari suru ne 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 don'na ni hanarete-ite mo wakaru However far apart we are, I still know In this overly vivid summer without you azayakasugiru kimi ga inai natsu That voice, those mannerisms, they spread on out ano koe ano shigusa ga hirogatteku It doesn't matter if it can't be put into words kotoba ni nanka dekinakute mo ii My heart is blurred out by the overflowing sunshine koboreta hizashi ni kokoro ga nijinda 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 NEXT EPISODE Hey! Don't tell me Hideomi-san was actually— Yeah, right! His estimated time of death was So, there was a way, after all! Say, Hattori.
