Huh? There's a message on here.
Hey, now.
Don't go touching it.
You have one message.
Geez.
Hello, this is Aki Asano from Nichiuri TV.
I'm calling because I need to speak with you about something urgent.
You appear to be out, so I'll call again later.
Who's Aki Asano? The weather lady! You know, she does the weather on Nichiuri TV! Yeah! She's on "News City" too! She's super cool! I'm a big fan of hers! But what could she urgently need to talk to him about? Alright! Let's talk with her instead, as the Detective Boys! Yeah! Hey, now Nichiuri TV Oh? Aki Asano (27) Weather lady and newscaster So you came all the way here in Mouri-san's place? Yes! If you need help, leave it to us, the Detective Boys! Oh, are you greeting children today? Tsukumo-san Having to deal with kids just to gain popularity Kazumi Tsukumo (31) Newscaster Big-name newscasters sure have it tough! Yikes.
What gaudy makeup.
What's with that fingernail? That's not what I'm doing.
Behave yourselves, kiddies.
Don't get in the way of her work.
What an unpleasant person! Isn't she the person who did the news before you did? That's right.
We switched places about half a year ago.
Was she what you wanted to talk to Mr.
Mouri about? No.
A-Actually, uhh I was wondering if Detective Mouri-san would be on News City! Aww, what a downer.
What a relief it wasn't a case - What's that sound? - What is that? It's a pager.
Ran-neechan told me to take it because I always suddenly disappear.
Oh! You're so lucky! You had a cell phone, Mitsuhiko! It was only a receiver! But it broke, right? Yes.
For the sake of justice Oh? Really? Oh, this is the detective agency's number, so it must be Ran-neechan! Oh, I know! Could you give me your pager's number? I can contact you when I need the Detective Boys' help! Awesome! Hey, Conan! Sure! It's written right here! Thanks! Let's see Now to save "Detective Boys" to my phone There we go! All done! Oh! This only shows numbers, huh? I used to have one, too! My friends and I often used numbers to write messages for fun! Messages? Even if it can only display numbers, you can use numbers that look and sound like letters to write things! For example, "428" could be read "Shibuya"! Shibuya! Neat! Say, since you're here, how about a tour of the News City studio? - Yes! - Hurray! Oh, just a minute.
Hello, this is Asano.
Yes.
Yes.
I will.
Yes.
Okay.
I'll be right there.
I'm sorry.
I have work to do, so I can't go.
I-I'm sorry! Oh, Kobayashi-san! Yes? What can I do? I'm sorry to ask, but could you show them to Studio A? Some work just came up, so Sure, it's no problem! Oh, and could you get them some passes? Sure.
Well, shall we go? Hurray! I'm hungry How long is she going to make us wait? Sorry to suddenly ask you to stand in like this! That's fine, but what's this about Aki-san being threatened? Threatened?! Who are these kids?! They're distracting! Get rid of them! U-Understood! Running off because of a threat?! Aki-san is a failure as a journalist! We're beginning rehearsal! Sorry.
Kazumi-san hates children.
Say, she said Aki-san was threatened.
Yeah.
We came to see Aki-san in Detective Mouri's place! Oh, the famous detective?! I see.
Well, just between us, Aki-san's been getting harassing letters and phone calls ever since she started a story about a certain politician's corruption.
She got a letter this morning threatening to kill her if she appeared on today's News City.
Was this threat what she really wanted to discuss? You can see the News City broadcast on that TV.
Well, I have work to do, so I'll see you later.
Hey, do you think the phone call Aki-san got earlier was a threatening phone call?! Yes, and then that scared her No! Aki-san isn't a weakling like that! You agree with me, right, Conan-kun?! Yeah When she was on the phone then, she didn't seem afraid at all.
In fact, she sounded happy, as if she had gotten a special scoop.
That call was probably not a threat.
No, wait! If that call had been a trap to lure her somewhere—! Is it Ran-oneechan again? No.
It's probably Aki-san.
Only she and Ran-neechan know this number.
Oh! Okay! Hello, this is Asano.
I'm not home right now, so please leave your— Huh? Why'd you hang up? Was it not Aki-san? It was her home.
But it was her answering machine.
That's odd! Why would she have you call her home if she isn't there? The police?! Why would the police call us?! No! It's Aki-san! A bad guy must've caught her! So she wants us to call the police! Then couldn't she just call them herself? What if she's unable to talk? Oh no! It's an abduction That's the city code of her phone number! The police won't listen to us with only this.
If the police can't help, then the Detective Boys will! Yeah.
But this isn't enough to know where she is.
Oh Yeah And now for today's sports.
The J-League game at the National Stadium between the Tokyo— I like Aki-san a lot better I got it! It's read "temple guardian"! niou-sama So she's where there are temple guardian statues! Come on.
Can't you deduce a little better than that? The messages after 7:20 make no sense at all.
Lastly, we've just received this news.
The Special Investigation Unit of the Tokyo Public Prosecutor's Office is to question the politicians Mr.
Maruya and Mr.
Okubo tomorrow about their possible acceptance of large bribes in relation to the corruption case involving Bay Development.
I've figured out what Aki-san's messages mean! For reals, Mitsuhiko?! These are indicating the names of the politicians who took bribes! And the 96 of 096 is "kuro"! So Aki-san is trying to say it's Maruya who's guilty of corruption! Then what do 2003 and 5656 mean? They're bank account numbers used for the bribes, of course! Alright! Aki-san must be captured at Maruya's home then! Let's hurry and save her! I heard he lives in West Teitan, one subway stop from here! Let's go, Conan-kun! Okay.
Now there's thunder! Let's run, guys! "Maruya" Hey, Conan! Hurry up! Conan! Keep watch for anyone coming! Mitsuhiko! Hurry up here! Right! Hey, you! What are you doing?! Come down here! I'm sorry! Can't believe you guys ran off without me.
Next time, we'll have to do something about the guard and the dogs.
- You saw them first! - Stop it! Aki-san?! It's Ran-neechan.
Oh I'll go call her! Aww, it's raining again Hello? Ran-neechan? Conan-kun! Where are you at this time of night?! I paged you and paged you, but you ignored me! S-Sorry! I'll be home soon! You better come home quick! Huh? There's thunder where you are? Yeah.
It's really rainy and thundery.
It's nice weather here.
The moon is really pretty! It's pouring here, so I don't think I'll be home for a while.
Where are you right now, Conan-kun? Should I bring an umbrella and come get you? Moon? What? Hello? Conan-kun? Hey, are you listening to me? Now for tomorrow's weather.
A cold front in the northern Kanto region will bring clouds and rain.
Southern Kanto will have clear skies.
Tomorrow's high temperature We're going back to the TV station! Hurry, everyone! - Wait up! - You better explain, Conan! Here.
Try reading 2003 on its side.
On its side? M-O-O-N.
Oh, I get it! Awesome! So, what's that mean? It spells "moon" in English.
Now, the reason Aki-san sent this "2003" message first was because she wanted us to look up at the night sky.
The "2003" was displayed at 7:20 PM.
As I recall, the moon was in the southeast then.
But it wasn't visible from Maruya's mansion, because of buildings to the southeast.
Which means Aki-san isn't at Maruya's home, right?! Right.
She's being held somewhere where she can see the moon.
But that isn't enough to tell us where she is.
Exactly.
So she used numbers like weather symbols to indicate weather changes where she is! What about the 5656 at 8:31? Say the sound effect for thunder out loud.
Goro-goro I get it! 5656 was referring to thunder! Yep! So she's being held where there was rain and thunder around 8:30! Places with thunderstorms at 8:30 PM? Oh, the only one was the area around this TV station Nichiuri TV News Bureau — Meteorology Center within a 1-kilometer radius! It was a passing shower! Thanks! It's just as you thought! Aki-san is somewhere in this area! Yeah.
Wouldn't 01 be the symbol for "clear weather"?! No, it's still cloudy here.
It must mean something different.
I bet 0109 means, "I want to eat a huge eel box lunch!" After all, she's probably hungry! I think you mean you.
I'm hungry What's your problem?! It's not that funny! Sorry, sorry! That's not it! Nice work, Genta! Thanks to you, I know where Aki-san is! The large prop room? Yeah! That's where we got separated from her! As I recall, it's the northernmost room on the first floor Thanks! H-Hey! Aki-san's in the large prop room! Like Genta said, you read the 0, 10, and 9 of that 0109 separately! O to ku? Large prop! ōdōgu There are lots of rooms in TV stations that people rarely enter! If the kidnapper works here, they could use one! Does that mean you know who it is?! Yeah, because Aki-san told us who! End of the line! It's no use running.
We know everything.
Give yourself up.
You called Aki-san here, knocked her out with drugs or something, and locked her in that back room to make others think she had run away, out of fear of that threat.
Yes.
You tried to ruin her credibility and have her kicked off News City! Aki-san used her cell phone to send us messages about her location by referencing weather changes she could see outside the window! Except, there was one message she sent that I didn't understand.
This number came in after a message to call the police.
But, if it didn't indicate her location it indicated her kidnapper's name! Oh no, you don't! Take this! We're the Detective Boys! There's no getting away from us! That's right! Aki-san! Hang on! Aki-san! Changed to kanji and read aloud "tsu-ku-mo.
" That would be you, Kazumi Tsukumo-san! Get off me! I just couldn't stand it News City was my idea! It was my show from the start! But then they replaced me with someone younger, someone cuter! This is serious business! This is Then earn the spot back with actual skill.
However you rationalize it, a crime can't be justified.

And cut! Good work! Sorry for the wait! Thank you all so much for yesterday! But only the Detective Boys could've realized that my messages were weather codes! But how did you know it was Kazumi-san? When she tried to put me to sleep, I caught a glimpse of her nails.
Oh! The nail art! Yep! The design reminded me of a weather map, so I remembered it.
That means you're snow pellets, Genta-kun! - Snow pellets? - See?! Snow Pellets Ah! That image fits you perfectly! Hey, you! Hey, Genta.
You're not just snow pellets.
