Review of the movie "Detective Conan the Movie: Scarlet Bullet"
The original manga started serialization in "Weekly Shonen Sunday" in 1994, and TV anime started broadcasting in 1996. In 1997, the first movie "Clockwork Skyscraper" was released, and the whole history of the "Detective Conan" series is a little less than 30 years.
After a one-year release postponement because of the novel coronavirus, the latest movie (24th movie), "Detective Conan the Movie: Scarlet Bullet," has finally been released at theaters.
This time, the story reveals a big incident that occurred before the Tokyo tournament of "WSG (World Sports Games)", the world's largest sports festival.
At the opening ceremony, the opening of the "Vacuum Superconducting Maglev", which boasts a maximum speed of 1000 km / h, was announced. However, an incident occurred at the party venue where the tournament sponsors gathered. The top executives of each company were abducted one after another.
And the content of this case was very similar to the "WSG serial abduction case" that occurred in Boston, USA 15 years ago.
Conan, who start the case investigation, decided to cooperate with FBI agent Akai Shuichi and other members (Jody, Camel, Black) ,who are secretly investigating because it was once under the jurisdiction of the FBI. At the same time, Akai's mother, Mary, and her daughter, Sera Masumi, who belong to the British spy agency "MI6", also started the investigation.
In addition, Akai's younger brother, Haneda Shukichi, and his beloved one, the policewoman of the Metropolitan Police Department, Miyamoto Yumi, will be involved in the incident for some reason, and the "Akai family" will unexpectedly assemble.
The above is the outline of this movie. The highlight is still "Akai Family Gathering", but it is only one good thing about this movie.
It has a spectacular uniqueness, with the detailed depiction of the characters that charms the core fans, and the essence of solid political suspense, yet the balance of each element is very good.
Even time limit suspense of "Case Closed: The Time Bombed Skyscraper", "Case Closed: Captured in Her Eyes ", "Case Closed: Countdown to Heaven", "Detective Conan: Quarter of Silence", "Zero Enforcer", and others will be included, and it will entertain the audience in every corner.
In this article, we will introduce the charms of the movie "Detective Conan the Movie: Scarlet Bullet" from the perspective of a serious fan while avoiding spoilers.
The story of "world specifications" tailored to the Akai family
First of all, one of the advantages is the basic story structure of this work.
Speaking of Conan movies, the setting of "location" is clever every time. "Strategy Above the Depths" happens in a luxury liner, "The Lost Ship in the Sky" on an airplane, and so on, so the suspense element is enhanced by setting the situation, but this time it is "SCMaglev". It is called the "Japanese bullet" because of its maximum speed is 1000km / h.
If you are a fan, this "bullet" is a hint for you. Conan is called the "silver bullet" by Vermouth from the Black Organization as a threat that destroys the organization itself, which was also the name originally given to Akai. In short, the word "bullet" is reminiscent of Akai.
And, in order to involve Akai and the FBI, past incidents of WSG at the U.S. is brought out as part of the settings.
By setting "Sports Festival in Japan", it is possible to develop a story that is conscious of the world while being set in Japan. The inevitability that not only the FBI but also MI6 will move is based on the idea, "dignitaries from each country assembled in Japan."
In addition, the need for the FBI to move is strengthened by leaving the former FBI Director as a key member of the WSG. This work is a magnificent story in which the Conan & FBI & Akai family all together challenge one case, and the setting of this part is created well.
Also, from the time of the opening, it has been made completely different from the past work, and it will surprise audience.
This work starts in Detroit 15 years ago, and a part of the WSG serial abduction case is drawn along with the blues harp played by street musicians. English staff credits emerge there, and an overseas movie-like opening sequence unfolds.
The production that is clearly conscious of the "overseas" makes us feel a challenging spirit is significantly different from the past movies.
In this way, "Scarlet Bullet" shows the tense beginning, but the situation setting of the SCMaglev is also composed well.
Incidents occur both inside and outside the train that moves at a 1000 km / h speed, and the highlights of Conan, FBI, and the Akai family are shown at the same time. Further details will be spoilers, so we will not tell it, but the speedy development that each character solves multiple cases and links them brings entertainment and exhilaration to the story.
It can be said that this is a good example of both the propositions of recent Conan movies, "character showcase" and "strength as a story".
Reality-oriented script by Sakurai Takeharu
The greatness of the setting comes from the skills of Takeharu Sakurai, a scriptwriter of the popular dramas "Aibo" and the movie "Zero's Enforcer". It is interesting that his participation, who specializes in criminal stories with elements of political suspense, creates a social drama atmosphere.
For example, during the story, some lines warn against slander on the internet that "America is tough for those who succumb to terrorism", and "It is an era when others who have no interests attack in a bundle".
There are also scenes where the FBI says, "Thieves should be eliminated", and Conan confronts the difference in beliefs with, "Even thugs don't deserve to die." It is also a part that clearly shows the difference between the American stance in the gun society, which is opposite to Japanese, and many moments depict various problems of modern society in "Detective Conan".
The criminal's motive is also quite tasteful, including the line on the flyers "The chain of sorrow is now accelerating", which makes the viewer think more even after watching.
In the first place, it was planned to draw an event that clearly reminds us of the Tokyo Olympics, and to hit the story that "a bloody incident will occur before the opening ceremony" at the time of the event (originally scheduled to be released just before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics). So, when you look at the actual event, you can see that it is a very aggressive project.
Nowadays, the Conan movie is recognized as a festival movie that is sure to be a big hit, but the story of this work, while preparing a showcase called "Akai Family Gathering", is taking a lot from the real world.
In addition to the moments from above, the tricks used by criminals to cause terrorism involving the general public also use medical expertise. Also, there are some small stories such as "USMS (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and FBI are not on good terms, so it is difficult to ask for information."
It may seem like "creating a place for the Akai family to play a more active role", but in "Scarlet Bullet" a story linked to the real world is unfolding more than ever.
As a result, it can be said that it is noteworthy that there is a profound feeling.
The tag battle full of characters' love is hot!
However, it is wonderful that it covers the development that entertains the fans while incorporating such realistic elements. It's not just about making the Akai family appear, it's also preparing tag battles in various ways.
Not only Conan and Akai, but also Conan and Sera, Sera and Mary, Akai and Haneda, and other popular characters appeared together in several joint battles can only be seen in this movie.
For example, when Akai (Okiya Subaru) is waiting for Conan in front of Dr. Agasa's house, and a scene where they hold a "strategy meeting" while driving, a brother-sister confrontation between Akai and Sera, etc. We want to avoid the details because it is better to watch, but even in casual scenes, many things will delight fans, and make them say, "this interaction is hot!".
In addition, in the scene where Conan and Sera form a tag team, a thrilling offense and defense are drawn in which Conan faces a case resolution while exchanging a search from Sera who is convinced that Conan's identity is Shinichi.
Also, the way of drawing the early members Conan, Ran, and Haibara is exquisite. The exchange between Shinichi (Conan) and Ran, who became lovers after confessing feelings on a sunny day, has become more intimate, and it should be deeply emotional for fans who have followed the series for many years (Well prepared "Ran!" and "Shinichi!").
Furthermore, in this work, the cooperation between Conan and Haibara explodes. Conan's overwhelming trust in Haibara was shown many times, and while Haibara grumbles, "You're treating me bad", and she is practically Conan's best companion. It is nice to see the strong love of the creators for their characters.
Although it is a small part, the scene where Haibara wears Conan's spare glasses has a special meaning for fans.
Originally, in "Pisco Arc" (comics volume 24), in which she fell into distress of desperation, Conan handed her glasses to Haibara, saying, "If you put it on, they won't catch you." Since then, Haibara often wore glasses in serious times such as the important moment (volume 42) when Jody and Vermouth confront each other, but this time it was set to prepare in advance so that an unexpected situation occurred in Conan.
Haibara, who has a tragic past, gradually finds her place, which is an important highlight of the "Detective Conan" series, but in this work, that awareness can be felt here and there.
It is a nice moment for fans to see a lot of interaction between Ran and Haibara when Haibara tossed Ran and bothered him, and both of them were concerned about Conan's safety, and the initial communication failure (Haibara Ai rejected Ran). We can say, that for the first time in the movie two of them shown grown up enough to overcome their problems.
Check out the richness of facial expressions drawn by director Nagaoka Chika
The balance between the depiction of each character and the folding of the suspense action is an exquisite work, but we think that Nagaoka Chika, who debuted as a director with "Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire" is just as important as Sakurai's script.
She is a creator who brought out the new charm of Suzuki Sonoko with "The Fist of Blue Sapphire" and was acclaimed for her delicate psychological depiction and her loving production of the character. In this work as well, you can see many "character exquisite facial expressions" unique to the director Nagaoka.
For example, Ran's embarrassed expression when she calling Shinichi, the smile that Yumi's kindness and strength coexist with while watching over Haneda and expressing her unwavering affection, and Akai and Haneda in poses - all character move lively and their facial expressions are rich.
Personally, we were particularly surprised by Haibara, and perhaps because of the depth of the tag battle with Conan as mentioned earlier, each of her facial expressions is really rich. The main story is about the Akai family, but we think the visual that everyone will remember is "Haibara Ai".
Also, the wonderful collaboration between the director Nagaoka and scriptwriter Sakurai is shown in the scene where Jody talks about the witness protection program.
Her parents were killed by the Black Organization Vermouth, and she has a history of accepting approved protection programs. That's why talking about approval protection programs is also traumatic for Jody. Her expression on her face makes shows her sadness and anger, yet she determines to move forward.
This is just an example, and the character and story still show a wonderful fusion in the play.
About action, there is a tremendous showcase in the second half of "Scarlet Bullet", and you will be surprised at the theater. We hope that you will enjoy the all details of the new Conan movie, which is a wonderful work with all the spirit, technique, and physical strenth.

After a year of postponement, the 24th film in the "Detective Conan" series, "The Scarlet Bullet," finally hit theaters nationwide on April 16. I'm sure there are many people who were excited about the opportunity to finally see the new film.
However, there is one concern. In the less than 30 years since the original "Detective Conan" series was released, the story and characters have grown in scale and complexity.
The original comic series will soon reach its 100th volume and the TV anime series will reach its 25th anniversary, making it even more interesting, but as is the fate of a long-running series, it is now becoming difficult for beginners to get into the content.
However, it would be a shame to let that put you off. In order for you to enjoy "Detective Conan: the Scarlet Bullet”, this article will explain "five things you must know". I hope you find it useful as a guide when watching the film.
Point:1 Who is FBI undercover agent Shuichi Akai?
The main selling point of "Detective Conan: the Scarlet Bullet" is the gathering of the Akai family.
Some of you may be wondering, "What is the Akai family? So, let's start with a review of this part. First, let's talk about the central character, Shuichi Akai.
In the original story, he first appeared in volume 29. Initially, he was a mysterious "friend or foe", but in the later chapters of Kudo Shinichi & Mouri Ran drawn in Volumes 34-35, he was revealed to be an FBI agent.
Later, as the volumes progressed, more and more details were revealed about him, such as "he had infiltrated the Black Organization, but his love (Miyano Akemi, Haibara's sister) was killed by a Black Organization Gin," "he is an excellent marksman and has a sharp mind," "he is currently hiding his true identity and disguising himself as Okiya Subaru, a graduate student who is Dr. Agasa's neighbor," and "he and Conan have built a trusting relationship through encountering many incidents, and now he is a good friend and a reliable companion.
In the movie version, he played an active role in the 18th movie "Dimensional Sniper" and the 20th movie "The Darkest Nightmare". In "Dimensional Sniper," it was suggested that Okiya Subaru's true identity was Akai Shuichi, which shocked fans.
In "The Darkest Nightmare", he had a direct confrontation with Amuro Toru (Furuya Rei), a public safety police officer who also infiltrated the Black Organization (Akai was hated by Amuro because he was involved in an incident that killed his best friend).
In "Scarlet Bullet," a case involving the FBI's past unfolds, and Akai is forced to take action.
Point:2 About the "Akai Family" in this film
One of the major highlights of "The Scarlet Bullet" is the coming together of the "Akai Family" with Shuichi Akai as the eldest son. The family consists of father, Akai Tsutomu, mother, Sera Mary, first son, Akai Shuichi, second son, Haneda Hideyoshi, and first daughter, Sera Masumi.
The father, Akai Tsutomu, is deceased and was a member of the British secret intelligence service MI6 (as was Mary).
There are still many mysteries about this family, but here are the parts that are known.
Mary, who is currently working for MI6, is as small as Conan in size.
Haneda Hideyoshi is a professional Shogi player and the lover of police inspector Miyamoto Yumi.
The youngest child, Sera Masumi, is a high school girl who attends Teitan High School like Ran and Suzuki Sonoko.
The reason why each of them has a different surname is presumably because of an incident their father was involved in.
Incidentally, Haneda seems to be the only one who knows that Akai is alive. Mary, on the other hand, lives with Sera.
Therefore, even though they are family members, not all of them are aware of each other's current situation. For this reason, the "Akai Family Gathering" in "Scarlet Bullet" is an extremely rare "incident". It's a must-see for fans.
In addition, recent Conan movies have been closely linked to the original story, and there are many patterns of "new facts being revealed in the movie," such as the suggestion in "Dimensional Sniper" that the true identity of Okiya Subaru is Akai Shuichi.
There is a good chance that new facts about the Akai family will be revealed in this film, so fans' expectations are rising.
Incidentally, Sera seems to be convinced that Conan's true identity is Shinichi, and the battle between the two will be the key to "The Scarlet Bullet".
→Next page: Point:3 Akai's fellow FBI members also play a big role!
Point:3 Akai's friends, the FBI members, are also very active!
There are three FBI agents who are working with Akai in Japan (although unofficially, they are in hiding in order to pursue the Black Organization). They are also very active in this film, so if you know the basic situation, you will be able to get into the story smoothly.
The first is Jody Sterling. Her parents were murdered by Vermouth, a member of the Black Organization, and after being placed in an authorized protection program, she followed her late father's wishes and became an FBI agent.
She worked as an English teacher at Teitan High School for a while, and through that she became acquainted with Conan and Ran. She is also the former lover of Akai Shuichi.
And Andre Camel. He is Akai's subordinate and is skilled in driving. In the past, he and Akai made a mistake when they were chasing the Black Organization, and he is determined to get revenge.
The one who unites them is their leader, James Black. He is a cool-headed man with a keen eye for observation.
The three of them are chasing the Black Organization under the guise of being on an extended vacation in Japan.
In "The Scarlet Bullet," the characters are involved in a case in Japan that is very similar to a series of abductions that took place in the U.S. and was under the jurisdiction of the FBI. In addition, the former director of the FBI also appears in the film, so the story is very relevant to them as well.
Point:4 What is the current relationship between Conan (Shinichi), Ran and Haibara?
The relationship between Conan, Ran and Haibara is one of the most important things to understand before watching "The Scarlet Bullet".
Shinichi and Ran were childhood friends and had feelings for each other, and finally decided to tell each other their feelings and start dating.
Since Shinichi still can't return to his original form as Conan (and can't reveal his true identity), they became lovers, albeit via a long-distance relationship. With this premise in mind, it should be easier to understand their relationship, such as in the phone scene between them in "Scarlet Bullet.
In "The Scarlet Bullet," Conan and Haibara's joint play is also well depicted. In the past, Haibara was almost in love with Conan, but now she seems to have changed to become just a good friend.
As the story unfolds with this in mind, it would be more enjoyable to review the history of the two in the background of the buddy-like scenes.
In the beginning, Ran and Haibara did not have a good relationship because Haibara was jealous of Ran. However, Ran's straightforwardness melted Haibara's heart (Comics vol. 31), and now they are able to get along without any conflict. In this work, the interaction between Ran and Haibara is closely portrayed, which is deeply moving for the fans.
Point:5 A powerful staff that even connoisseurs can enjoy
Before watching "The Scarlet Bullet", it would be a good idea to know the "personalities" of the staff.
First, let's talk about the director of the film, Nagaoka Chika. After gaining experience in TV animation and theatrical series, she made her directorial debut with the 23rd film "The Fist of Blue Sapphire", which was highly acclaimed for its detailed psychological depiction.
She has a deep understanding of the characters and her skills are on full display in "Scarlet Bullet" as she directs Suzuki Sonoko, who had a strong image as an energetic character, to show unprecedented expressions as she struggles with her relationship with her boyfriend Kyogoku Makoto.
Be sure to pay attention to the details, such as Ran's embarrassed face, Haibara's relieved smile, and Yumi's calm and composed expression.
And then there is the screenwriter, Sakurai Takeharu. He is the author of the popular TV drama series "Partners" and the social phenomenon "Zero the Enforcer". He is good at writing detective stories , so his writing about the FBI has strengthened the element of political suspense.
The clash between Conan's conviction to "arrest without killing" and the FBI's conviction to "eliminate threats as a priority" and the socially conscious dialogues included in key parts of the story are a treasure trove of compelling words. The good chemistry between director Nagaoka-san and Sakurai-san is also a major weapon in this film.
Another fun feature of Conan the Movie is that the original writer, Aoyama Goshou, participates in the storyboarding. This time, too, his handwriting is used in storyboards for important scenes. We hope you will enjoy it as well.

Please feel the heat of "Yowamushi Pedal" at the cinema with me!", and Nagase added, "As for Sakamichi, sometimes things you normally take for granted could be the key to unlock your talent for something else.

It has been announced that the filming of the live-action "Yowamushi Pedal" has been completed. Comments and photos of Nagase Ren (as Onoda Sakamichi) and Itou Kentarou (as Imaizumi Shunsuke) have also been received.
"Yowamushi Pedal" is originally a manga with the same title by Watanabe Wataru, which is currently serialized in Weekly Shonen Champion. The story depicts Onoda Sakamichi, an anime-loving high school student who commutes to Akihabara from his hometown in Chiba on his mamachari (lit. “mom’s bike”, Japan’s ubiquitous city bicycles). There, he decides to join the Bicycle Club for a particular reason, and with his new friends, he will overcome his limits through bicycle racing.
The film has already been adapted into an anime, stage play, and drama series, but this is the first live-action movie.
After the film shooting started in early February, it was interrupted due to the declaration of the state of emergency. However, the filming restarted carefully in June after the cancellation of the declaration, and now it has been completed.
On the last shooting day, the race showdown with Onoda Sakamichi played by Nagase Ren and Imaizumi Shunsuke played by Itou Kentarou was filmed. The scene of the two of them desperately climbing up the steep hill (which also appears in the original story) to the very edge under the blazing sun is a must-see.
Nagase commented; "Today's scene was just hard! But we all worked hard from practice all the way through, and now it has become a good memory!", while Imaizumi said, "Today was the hardest day for me too! It took from the cold to the hot season, but I'm glad we could finish it without any injury!". Finally, they both said, "Now that we can't experience what we took for granted in the past, I hope you will be able to see our efforts and enjoy the springtime of life".
The live-action film "Yowamushi Pedal" is scheduled to be released in theaters nationwide on Aug. 14, 2020.
