Okay! Now, let's hide! Genta just had to kick it so hard A high schooler playing Kick-the-Can? And here, of all places? What's with this crowd, anyway? Oh! Conan-kun! What are you doing here? What are you guys doing here? A concert! We came to see a concert at the Budokan! Why the flowers? Oh, these? The concert starts at 6:00, but we thought we might meet them if we came early Because musicians usually show up 6 hours before concerts! Who's "them"? Oh, come on! The two from Two-Mix, obviously! Two-Mix? You never heard of them?! It's the super-famous team of Minami Takayama and Shiina Nagano! Oh, that gaudy dance-music group? That hurt! Don't talk all big when you never even listen to 'em! Now, now! Conan-kun is still a kid! Besides, remember when we took him to karaoke? Now that you mention it he did sing pretty off-key Yep! Just like someone else, he doesn't seem that interested in music.
So, he doesn't get how good they are Well, excuse me.
Alright, Conan-kun! What're you doing? Please play seriously! Sorry! See you later! Yeah.
Don't go with strangers! - We won't! - Don't worry! I'm here! You're the biggest worry of all! Bye! There sure are a lot of people Where are they going? Some Two-Mix concert.
Said they're gonna give 'em a bouquet— For reals?! The Two-Mix?! The ones who did the Kamen Yaiba theme song?! Oh, man! Not them, too Hey! Let's go check it out too! Let's! Maybe we can get autographs! Oh, geez Let's hurry! Yeah! Ow! I'm so sorry, kids! Watch where you're walking, Mister! You're Two-Mix's Minami Takayama! Did she say Takayama? Minami Takayama?! No way! Say, kiddos! Ya hungry? My treat! Great! Let's go! Eat all ya want! Guess that wasn't her Yeah.
This looks good! Thanks for the food! This is delicious! Hey, what happened to not going with strangers? Geez They ordered all the expensive stuff You're not having any, Minami-chan? Nah! I'm not that hungry! I should've brought more money But, is this okay? Don't you need to tune up before the show? Yeah, but my partner, Shiina-kun, hasn't shown up, and there's no answer on his cell phone So, I snuck outside to look around for him.
Why don't you try calling him from here? I'd like to, but I forgot my own phone at the office.
And that guy's been on the pay phone for a while Talk about bad luck Yup.
I've been having lots of bad luck lately How so? Like, my office locker getting broken into, or marks from someone picking my lock at home And prank calls every day! Some strange man who says just one thing: "Don't sing.
" Do you think it's a stalker? It is a case of foul harassment! This is a job for the Detective Boys! Thanks Consider this meal my payment Say, when did this harassment start? Hmm, last Sunday, I think Just after my live radio broadcast I heard that broadcast! So did I! You played part of a demo tape of your new song, right? Demo tape? I can let you hear it all, if you'd like! Really?! Here it is! The only demo tape of it in the world! What did you think?! The lyrics and music were cool! How about you? It doesn't have any strange voices or sounds How rude! Of course it doesn't! Doesn't seem the harassment is because of this tape.
So, what did you think? I guess it was okay Ah! I figured it out! You already solved the case? No! It's their voices! Something kept bugging me, but Minami-san and Conan-kun sound just alike! - Yeah, right! - Yeah, right! They do! Like two geese in a pond! You mean two peas in a pod! Maybe you can stand in for me whenever I get a cold! That's a bad idea.
Conan-kun is tone-deaf! That's all I'm hearing today Aw, man.
He's still on the phone.
You can use this! Here! What is this? What a gaudy earring It's an Earring Cell Phone! My friend, Dr.
Agasa, made it for me! So, I put it on my ear, right? No, you dial the number before you— Takayama-sama! Is there a Takayama-sama here? Oh, that's me.
A Shiina Nagano-sama is on the phone.
Thanks.
Where are you?! They already started tuning up! Sorry! Something came up I'm in the car out front.
Car? Whose car is that? I have something to show you.
Could you come here? You have it there? Y-Yeah Don't come, Minami! Stay away! What? Hello?! What's his deal? Thank you! Why is that guy Come on, Shiina-kun! Say something, will ya?! Freeze.
Shiina-kun! Now, get in.
Oh no! Conan-kun! Minami-chan's been Kidnapped! Damn it! A kidnapping right before my eyes?! Hello, this is the Budokan.
Sorry, could you repeat that? I said I have Two-Mix hostage.
Huh? If you wanna save 'em, call the police right now.
Quit kidding around, will ya? What was that? Said he kidnapped Two-Mix.
Excuse me! These kids claim Minami Takayama-san was kidnapped! Eh? What?! It's the truth! We saw her get shoved into a car! Save Minami-chan! So that call really was This is bad! Call the police immediately! Yes, sir! Looks like rain We're gonna get wet if they don't start soon Police cars! Did something happen? Inspector! This way! Split up and question people in the area! Yes, sir! Okay, let's go! Yes, sir! So, Minami Takayama-san left by herself? Yes.
We couldn't contact Nagano-kun, so she went to look around.
Afterwards, while dining with you children, she was called outside and kidnapped? Yeah.
After she got the call and went outside, the man behind her pushed her inside the car! What?! So you saw the kidnapper?! Yeah! He was as tall as old man Mouri and was wearing a ski hat and a scarf! And round sunglasses! He had long, frizzy hair and a mustache! But, it could be a disguise! And there were at least two kidnappers! Huh? How do you know that? After the man pushed her into the back seat of the car, he got into the passenger seat! In other words, someone else was driving! I see.
And then you got the call.
Yes.
They said they had kidnapped Two-Mix and to call the police What exactly are they planning? You'd expect them to say not to call the police Perhaps they're really confident? Or Or, they never intended to release their hostages from the start! That's terrible Inspector! It's them! Get ready to trace it! Well, you have the honors.
Right Don't worry.
Just stay calm.
Alright.
Try not to agitate the kidnappers.
Agree to all their demands.
And stall them as long as possible.
Right.
Go ahead.
Hello Yes.
Alright.
Inspector, he wants to talk to the officer in charge.
Alright.
Hand it here.
Put it on speaker.
Hello? This is Inspector Megure.
Oh, what a pleasant surprise! It's a real honor to have the Section 1 inspector on the case! How are they?! Don't worry.
They're taking a little nap together.
What is it you want?! Money?! Or maybe— Money? I'm not interested in that.
I'm one of those so-called stalkers.
I want everything that's related to them.
Yes, like the bag she forgot at the restaurant, for example Bag?! This?! Alright! I'll have one of my men deliver— Don't mock my intelligence.
The brats.
Have them bring it.
You can't mean those four brats who were eating with Minami-chan.
But There's no time to be hesitant.
I have two hostages here.
I wouldn't care one bit if one of them went on to the afterlife.
Just get those four runts to bring the bag! No! I can't put children in such a dangerous situation! I'm sorry, but I can't accept that demand! Is that so? Then I have no choice.
Guess I'll turn Two-Mix into One-Mix and then get back to you.
Wait! Alright! We'll take you your bag! Yeah, Conan's right! We can't just sit around while Two-Mix is being held captive! I'll try my hardest! Hold on, now Great, then it's decided.
Hold on! In 15 minutes, I'll call a phone at Kudanshita Station.
Wait If even one of 'em is late, I'll start blastin' people! You get a trace?! I know they're in the direction of Haido, but he was calling from a moving car so I can't pinpoint him Alright.
Contact HQ at once and get a list of all suspects still at large from recent cases of mine! Yes, sir! But why The kidnapper knew my name, and hid his speech behind a voice-changer and polite talk! It's likely that I investigated him before! Right! Conan-kun.
Yes? I want you to promise me you won't do anything dangerous.
I promise.
Run away if you think you're in danger! Got it! Do you understand, too?! Um What should I do about the concert? Cancel it! That's not necessary! We'll rescue them before the concert starts, so just hold on! Hello?! Good.
Now get on the Toei-Shinjuku Line and answer the phone on Platform 13 at Shinjuku Station on the Yamanote Line in 15 minutes! I dropped the bag in a gutter earlier You dropped it in a gutter? Hey! Is the tape alright?! You idiot! Have you forgotten we want the tape destroyed?! Oh, yeah So, they are after the demo tape! But, why make the kids bring it? Especially with police escorts? Tell cops not to come and they'll come anyway.
Plus, with four kids, they'll assume they'll never lose sight of 'em.
We'll use that to our advantage.
What are you doing? Writing the lyrics on the demo tape.
The kidnappers are after this tape.
I can't find any strange sounds on it In which case, there has to be a keyword in these lyrics that poses a problem for those guys! Inspector.
We just got word that the kidnappers' car was abandoned by the Teimuzu River! Damn! They switched cars! Which means those four kids are our only hope now I'm dead tired All we've been doing is going around the Yamanote Line Do you suppose they're toying with us? No, they're just waiting for their chance! The moment the police lose sight of us! Give the tape to someone else? Yeah.
I'll call back in 3 minutes.
Hand it over in the bathroom and make sure the cops don't find out.
This is weird! Who did he say to give the tape to?! Tell us, Conan-kun! Say, when Two-Mix played this tape on the radio, did they mention anything else? Not really.
They did say they thought up the lyrics when they passed by a temple Shoenji Temple, I think Shoenji?! Wait! That's near where that murder happened last New Year's Eve! That was when some creep with a gun attacked a man but was killed when it went off during the struggle I'm pretty sure the man was acquitted for self-defense reasons Now I know why they want this tape! It's almost time! We gotta hurry Wait! I have a good idea! The phone's ringing.
The kids are picking it up.
That's the plan.
That'll get rid of those cops.
Don't screw up, now! The doors are about to close.
Please be careful.
Ayumi! Are you alright, little girl? Yes Anyone manage to get on?! Just us two How about the kidnappers? No, nobody yet The kids are throwing the bag out the window! There! So, that was the plan! OK! You watch the kids! We're heading for the bag! OK! Let's move! Huh? Where's that girl Wait! Your guys' work is done! You don't need to run away! Stop, little boy Eek! "Eek"? Anyone gotten near the bag? No one, so far.
Hello? Good work, little girl.
There aren't any cops around, I hope? No, there doesn't seem to be anyone Perfect.
Ready to come, like I told ya? Yeah I'll try my hardest! What?! Conan-kun and Ayumi-kun switched places?! My word 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 Let's sally forth, toward that distant dream kuridasou oikakete haruka na yume o don'na ni hanarete-ite mo wakaru However far apart we are, I still know 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 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, 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 NEXT EPISODE Are these your "Tracking Glasses"? Conan-kun You guys! What're you doing here?! You idiots! Why didn't you give the glasses to the police?! We just wanted— You'll have plenty of time to fight in the afterlife!
