At the same time, the film’s director Susumu Mitsunaka, best known for his directorial works for the Haikyu!! anime series, posted his comments on Twitter.


“Finally, the Conan film opens tomorrow! Our first meeting was before the Corona disaster, so we worked on it for over two years. I feel sorry for the directors of the past films… The entire staff worked as hard as they could. Please come see it in the theater!”


“I have to say this. The content of the film has nothing to do with reality. It has nothing to do with reality, but I sincerely hope that the world will become a peaceful place. I just want people to enjoy watching the film.”

Story introduction:


Shibuya, Tokyo, is bustling with the Halloween season. A wedding is being held at Shibuya Hikarie, where Detective Miwako Sato of the Metropolitan Police Department is dressed in a wedding dress. While Conan and the other invited guests are watching, an assailant suddenly bursts in, and Detective Wataru Takagi, who was trying to protect Sato, is injured. Takagi survived and the situation was settled, but in Sato’s eyes, the image of the grim reaper that she had seen when Detective Matsuda, the man she had been in love with, had been killed in a series of bombings three years ago, overlapped with Takagi’s.


At the same time, the perpetrator of the bombings escapes from prison. Is this really a coincidence? Rei Furuya (Toru Amuro), a member of the public safety police, is hunting down the man who killed his classmate, Detective Matsuda, but a mysterious person in disguise suddenly appears and puts a collar bomb on him.


Conan visits the underground shelter where Amuro is hiding out to disarm the collar bomb, and hears about an incident three years ago when he and his now deceased classmates from the police academy encountered an unidentified virtual bomber named “Plamya” in Shibuya. As Conan and his team investigate, a disturbing shadow begins to loom over them.
