Scary! Ran's always tense on days she has karate matches Conan-kun! You better come cheer me on! Yeah I'll come right after school! You better! I absolutely can't lose to my opponent today! So, you better come! If you don't Ran's really raring to go! Oh, it's just construction See you, Conan-kun! I'm in a hurry, so I'm off! 4:00, now! I gotta hurry to the karate arena or else I'll meet that roundhouse again! Hey, Conan! Just the voice I don't wanna hear Yeah? Crap! I got caught! Check this out! It's a wideband reversy! No, Genta-kun! It's called a wideband receiver! Same difference.
What does it do, again? It's like a powerful radio! It can even pick up taxi and cordless phone conversations! Looks like a toy to me Send a fire truck immediately! Rairaiken? I'd like three ramens and two dumplings That's awesome! But, isn't it wrong to listen in on people's phone conversations? That's called "wiretapping" We can't bother anybody if we're just listening! It's pretty creepy, though Whoops, I'm in trouble if I don't go see Ran's match I know! Let's listen in on Amie Namuro, that singer! OK?! Eh? She lives in this area?! I dunno Then we can't.
This receiver only picks up random signals within a 1 kilometer radius.
Random? That's no fun So, we can't choose who to listen to.
Watch.
You turn the dial like so until you find someone talking, like before.
See! I found one! I have your daughter.
What?! What did he say?! I said, I've kidnapped your daughter.
Call the cops and she's dead! A threatening phone call! This for reals?! Where are they talking from?! This only listens, so I can't tell! He kidnapped his daughter! Conan-kun Don't look at me What if it really is a kidnapping?! Even if it was real kidnapping, all we know is that they're within a 1 kilometer radius! It's just 1 kilometer.
He might call again! Let's wait and see! Okay, Conan-kun?! OK! The Detective Boys are back in action! Oh, geez "Beika Martial Arts Arena" "Gyokushinkai Karate Tournament" "Beika Martial Arts Arena" "Gyokushinkai Karate Tournament" In blue, Ran Mouri.
Ossu! Not good.
At this rate, I'll get stuck with them, again Where are you going, Conan-kun? Nowhere Looks like you haven't called the cops.
Daddy! Junko! What are you going to do to her?! I'll do anything you want! So, please let her go! For now, take your cordless phone and step out onto the balcony.
Good.
Now stand there.
Your satellite dish is in the way! Take it down! Eh?! Just do what I say! What's he making him do?! The kidnapper is watching him from somewhere! He probably told him to go onto the balcony to see him better! I'd forget about calling the cops if I were you.
I can see you nice and clear.
Do anything funny and I'll kill your daughter on the spot! He's going to kill her! What do we do?! Shouldn't we tell the police— Alright! I'll do whatever you say! What is it you want?! Money?! Do you want money?! That sound Don't get worked up.
Just wait there for a while.
He hung up! What now?! Tell the police? But would they believe us? He's right! All we know is that a Junko-chan might've been kidnapped! Plus, they hung up Let's do it ourselves! Eh?! We don't have time to go to the police and sit around! Okay! We'll catch the kidnapper! But how? We don't have any clues Oh, yeah I learned something from that last call.
Eh? What did you learn? What're you getting your math notebook out for?! It's not what you think! It's Dr.
Agasa's Electronic Map Notebook! Oh! That inventor relative of yours? Alright.
Here's our school.
That receiver picks up signals within a 1 kilometer radius.
The victim's home is somewhere in this circle.
And, that faint sound in the background It was a train.
The victim probably lives along a train line.
There's only one railway that goes through this area! The Beika Line! Ah! Alright! To the Beika Line! We made it to the train tracks Now what? These are the only tracks within the receiver's range! In other words, the victim is along this 600-meter length of track! OK! It's only 600 meters! But, isn't there any other way, Conan? I have one more hint, but What is it?! The kidnapper told him to take down his satellite dish, right? Yeah Satellite dishes are pointed to the southwest.
Which means the victim has a balcony facing southwest, but OK! Then the victim's house Has a balcony on the south or west! Let's go! Satellite dish? No question about it! That's it! Thought so But, there's tons of 'em! They're on the opposite buildings, too! Yeah, we don't have enough clues yet! But Hello.
The kidnapper called back! Great! Now give us some sort of hint! I'll find a clue this time! No, I will! Quiet! Seems you haven't contacted the cops.
Is Junko all right?! That all depends on you.
You mentioned you'd do anything I said.
So first, I want you to get naked.
Eh?! Naked! Take your clothes off! Naked?! I got it! He's making him go to a public bath nearby! What?! Good! Some high school girls are about to pass below your apartment! Wave to them! Or, do you not care what happens to your daughter?! Shout, "Hello!" and wave to them! Alright Hello! Hello! Whoa, look! Totally lame! Hello! Hello! How's it feel to be made fun of by high school girls in sailor uniforms? Keep doing that for a while.
Sailor uniforms I could hear quite a few high school girls over the wideband receiver That apartment building is likely on the way to a girls' school.
The only girls' schools in that 600 meter area are Seijun Girls' Academy and Beika Girls' High School I bet high school girls always made fun of the kidnapper.
Yeah, a girls' school teacher! No teacher would do this! I've figured out the schools, but I don't know their uniforms Seijun uses blazers.
Beika uses sailor uniforms.
Eh? Come again?! I used to dream about wearing a sailor outfit when I get to high school, but lately I've been considering a blazer and loose socks, too.
Which do you think is better?! They're both okay A blazer would look better! A sailor outfit! Beika Girls' High School! That narrows it down to a 300 meter radius! That way! Hey, wait up! A man waving from his balcony? I don't see any Maybe we should ask some high school girls? Alright! You can quit waving now.
Now, sing a song! Sing loud enough for the whole neighborhood to hear! Do it! I don't hear him It must not be this neighborhood.
There's some kind of sound! That sounds like a temple bell! That's it! The victim lives behind a temple! It sounds like a taiko drum! The kidnapper must be playing along! No! That sound It sounded just like that! It's a pile driver! Pile driver? Yeah! The machines that pound piles in at construction sites! But, finding construction sites around here would— I got it! If we follow that, it'll lead us to a construction site! This narrows it down to a 150 meter radius! I don't hear him As close as we are now, it's still a 150 meter radius! Without anything definitive Parents sure are pathetic.
They'll do anything for their kids! I know how it feels.
I used to be a parent myself "Used to be"?! The little girl who fell to her death one year ago I'm sure you remember, as it was from your apartment building.
That was my daughter who died! "Young Girl Falls to Death" Tomidokoro-san?! Is this Tomidokoro-san?! That's right.
I'm the one whose daughter you murdered.
What?! That was an accident! Shut up! The door to your roof was always off-limits and locked! So, why was it unlocked then?! Someone had picked it, or it just broke by chance! One whole week earlier! So why didn't you do anything about it?! I figured nobody ever went up there So it was nobody's fault?! Quit screwing around! I'm gonna let you experience the same sadness I did! The exact same sadness! What're you gonna do to Junko?! This is bad! We have to do something! Stupid train crossing! Now we can't hear! That's it! Gimme that! Hey, that's Never mind that! One Two Three Four Five Six Seven Eight There it is! 8.
2 seconds! This way! How do you know they're this way?! The sound of the train! It took 8.
2 seconds after it passed until I heard it on the receiver! Beika Line Speed Trains on the Beika Line go 100 km/h! That's about 27.
8 meters per second! I heard the train on the receiver Seconds In other words, the victim's house is 27.
8 meters x 8.
2 seconds away! Victim's Home And that would be here! A building around here with balconies facing south or west! And an apartment with a naked man on the balcony There he is! That's the man whose daughter was kidnapped! That just leaves the kidnapper's location Damn it! Where is he?! I'll do anything you say! Just spare my daughter's life! Anything? Anything at all! Good! I was waiting to hear that! Go get a knife from the kitchen.
A knife?! Alright Now I see! The kidnapper's going to force him to kill himself to get revenge without dirtying his own hands! I brought it.
Alright.
This will be my last demand.
Thrust the knife into your throat and I'll let your daughter go.
I can't do that! Oh? So, you don't care what happens to your daughter? Damn it! If I don't hurry! Where's the kidnapper?! Alright I'll do what you say! Just let me talk to Junko one last time! Fine.
Daddy! Junko! Are you all right?! Just hold on a little longer! Daddy! I wanna go home! I hate this smell! It smells like rubber! Rubber?! The tire factory! Over there! I can't see the building! Damn! It's not the tire factory?! Calm down! What buildings near the factory have a view of the victim's balcony? There's three of them! Which one?! Which apartment building?! The only one downwind from it is that building! That's gotta be it! Somewhere in that building are the kidnapper and Junko-chan! Conan! Do something, quick! He's really gonna kill himself! Junko-chan is in danger, too! I'm gonna let you experience the same sadness I did! The exact same sadness! The exact same sadness The roof! The kidnapper is on the roof! Eh?! Of that apartment building! One of you two call the police! Right! Wait for me, Conan! That's it! Jab it right in! Don't be rash! That's it! Just thrust it in! Do it! Thrust it in! Junko! What're you hesitating for?! Do it! Jab it in! Junko! Who's there?! Who the hell are you?! Conan Edogawa! A detective! Eat this! You did great! Junko forgive me! Junko-chan's dad! She's safe! I caught the kidnapper! Daddy! I'm safe now! I was rescued! Junko You really are safe?! Thank goodness! Thank goodness! Here I come, kidnapper! Huh?! Aw, you beat him up yourself? No, uh, he was so surprised when I showed up that he fell and hit his head! Aw, man Negaigoto hitotsu-dake Song by Miho Komatsu How did they meet doushite futari wa deatta no? Looking at such a lonely sunset? kon'na ni sabishii yuuhi o miru nante Even as I try to find clever words ki no ki'ita kotoba sagashite mo hanareta kokoro o tsunagu kotoba nakute There are none to connect our distant hearts dekiru-dake no egao de te o fureba Do you think if I wave with my best smile That I might look even a little prettier? chotto-dake demo kirei ni mieru no ka na negaigoto hitotsu-dake kanaete-kureru-nara If I could have one wish granted kizutsukeatta ai ga hajimaranai-you ni It would be that our love wouldn't make us both hurt It's broken! I'm really sorry Guess that means good riddance to these things! But, at least it was useful before it broke, Mitsuhiko-kun! Yeah Oh, geez Crap! I forgot! "Gyokushinkai Karate Tournament" "Beika Martial Arts Arena" Yikes! It's over already?! But, that was one mean roundhouse that high school girl won with! Yeah! You mean Ran Mouri?! She was awesome! So, the clincher was Ran's special roundhouse kick? Conan-kun! Did you watch?! Of course! Your roundhouse in the finals was awesome! I used my roundhouse to win in the semi-finals! I won the finals by default because my opponent was hurt! Conan-kun You broke your promise, didn't you?! I'm sorry! NEXT EPISODE So, the arrow was shot through this window? What's this? The shards are all lined up Part of the soot is gone An unburned wood chip Next Conan: The Crane That Returned a Favor Murder Case Next Conan's Hint: Bird's Nest Look forward to the next episode!
