The sniping accidents by an unknown sniper are occurring continuously!
The film "Detective Conan: The Sniper from Another Dimension" is the 18th film under the "Detective Conan" film series and was created to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the original work. This film will feature the key person of the latest film, Akai Shuuichi's younger sister, Sera Masumi, and the mysterious university student, Okiya Subaru, who is freeloading at Kudou's house.
The female high school girl detective, Sera, who is chasing after a guy that might be connected to the continuous sniping accident by a skilled sniper, is approaching the truth of this case together with Conan. However, behind-the-scene, the FBI was also secretly involved in this huge conspiracy...
This is the first appearance of the key person of the latest film, "Akai Shuuichi's" younger sister, Sera Masumi, and the mysterious university student, Okiya Subaru.
"Detective Conan: The Sniper from Another Dimension" will feature the first appearance of the key person of the original work, such as the female high school girl detective Sera Masumi and Okiya Subaru. This work will feature the achievements of Sera Masumi and it will also reveal the identity of the mysterious Okiya Subaru. Don't miss out his final statement.
Also, the guest voice actors are the actor Fukushi Souta-san and Patrick Harlan-san from the comedy duo, Pack'n Mack'n. Both of them will be voicing the former American military officers, who appear in front of Conan and others that are investigating this case. On top of their acting skill, they will also need to speak in English, and this is also one of the highlights of this film.
Conan (voiced by Takayama Minami), Ran (voiced by Yamazaki Wakana), and others participated in the opening ceremony of Tokyo's Bell Tree Tower that was just completed. On that day, the suspicious guy, Fujinami was sniped when he was pushing some inferior property to foreign couples on the observation deck. Conan suspected that the "Black Organization" was involved due to the accuracy from the long distance and started to chase after the sniper. He was then helped by Sera Masumi (voiced by Hidaka Noriko) and the FBI Investigator Jodie (voiced by Ichijou Miyuki) during a pinch, but the culprit has managed to escape.
Based on the various evidence, such as the dice, that was left on the sniping location, the FBI concluded that the culprit is Timothy Hunter (voiced by Nakai Kazuya), an ex-Navy SEALS and a talented sniper. After he got prosecuted and got all his badges confiscated as he shot a civilian in the battlefield, he got injured on a battlefield and begin to experience a harsh life.
After they found out the next 3 targets of Hunter are in Japan, the police started to cooperate with the FBI in the investigation.
Kevin Yoshino (voiced by Fukui Souta), who managed a military shop in Fussa claims that the sniper, who prosecuted Hunter, Waltz (voiced by Patrick Harlan), was framed by Hunter's...
Then, Sera and Conan hurried to the house of Moriyama, one of Hunter's targets, after they got ahold of his location. However, a new case happened when Moriyama was sniped in front of them, this caused the news to report the case as a "random spree sniping incident" and it has caused the public to panic. After that, another sniping incident happened, and the culprit ofto all this incident, Hunter was killed...!?
The broadcast date of "Detective Conan: The Sniper from Another Dimension" on Nippon TV affiliated "Kinyoubi Road Show" is at 9:00 PM, on April 16, 2021.
The nationwide released date for "Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet" is on April 16, 2021, on Toho affiliated theatres.

Both songs are included in the trailer along with a new video.

▼About " Image no Uta”
When I was working on the TV drama "Jimmy: The True Story of a True Idiot", I realized that even a song that is ingrained in my body can be conveyed to the people of today, and I wanted to perform "Image no Uta" in some way. So, I contacted Yoshida Takuro and he gave me the OK.
I told him that I wanted the song to be sung by a woman, so I would like to change the lyrics, and he said, "Sure, sure, whatever you want.” He said.
I realized that this song needed to have these lyrics. I wanted to have a woman sing it, but it was difficult to change the lyrics, so I thought it would be better to have a little girl sing the adult lyrics. This time, I asked a 10-year-old girl, Inagaki Kurumi, to sing it, and she understood it incredibly well. I told her the story of how Quincy Jones told Bob Dylan to sing like he was talking, and when I asked her to do it like that, she said, "Yes, Bob Dylan.” And wrote his name down on the lyric sheet (lol). I'm glad that this song will be released to the world again.
▼About the ending theme song "Taketen”
I had been in contact with HIDE of GReeeeN for a long time, and when I was having dinner with a good friend of mine, I jokingly asked HIDE to write a song for the movie, but it was passed on the spot. After a while, HIDE asked me, "Can I write a song for the movie?” He wrote this song by gathering information about me from TV and magazines when I was young, and he did a lot of research about me. I was bowled over. I sent HIDE about five ideas for the song's name.
HIDE understood that I was obsessed with "laughter" and said, "I appreciate other title ideas, but 'Taketen' is what I want. That's how we decided on "Taketen".
Theme song sound production, ending theme: GReeeeN
By chance, Sanma-san came across a wonderful book called "Gyokou no Nikuko-chan". We, GReeeeN, read the book and enjoyed writing the song! Before we started writing the song, we talked with Sanma-san many times and imagined the scene of the movie, and we came up with the ending theme song "Taketen". I'm sure that's what you're thinking. The title of the song, "Taketen", was given to me by Sanma-san!!
In your mind, write the word "Ten" for tempura under "Takekanmuri". A certain character may have come to your mind. (It's not exactly "heaven", but...) There is someone who wants to make you laugh, there is someone who wants you to laugh. And there is someone who wants you to be happy. That's how I feel! I was also involved in the sound production of the theme song, "Image no Uta". With respect for Yoshida Takuro, the original composer of the song, I received an idea from Sanma-san that he wanted a little girl to sing the song, and after discussing it with Takebe-san, the arranger, the song was completed. I was touched by the wonderful straightness of Inagaki Raizumi, who sang the song! Please watch the movie in theaters and pay attention to the music as well. ！！！！
Theme song sung by Inagaki Kurumi
I like to sing, but I'm not a good singer, and I was very nervous. During the recording session, HIDE and the staff made it very easy for me to understand the song by saying, "Sing this part as if you were singing at the end of fourth period gym class. So, it was very easy and interesting to sing. Sanma-san praised me very much. I was confident that Mr. Sanma had chosen me for my voice, and I sang the song. Sanma-san and all the staff nodded their heads, so I think it turned out to be a very good song.
