Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween, the brand new film based on the Case Closed (Detective Conan) anime series, will be having its opening premiere in Japan this upcoming week.
TMS Entertainment Co., Ltd. announced that Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween would premiere in Japan on April 15 nationwide. The upcoming movie will be the 25th film installment based on the Case Closed (Detective Conan) anime series. The film’s setting will be in Shibuya, a particular ward or municipality in Tokyo, Japan. The new movie will be during the Halloween season and will have a recreation of Shibuya’s famous existing cityscapes.
The Case Closed (Detective Conan) anime is based on the long-running manga series created by Gosho Aoyama. The series focuses on a high school detective named Shinichi Kudo. While investigating the mysterious Black Organization, he encounters two of their members. They force him to ingest a lethal poison.
However, instead of dying, Kudo shrinks into a child. Kudo adopts a new identity under the pseudonym Conan Edogawa to hide his identity. Kudo solves numerous cases throughout the series by pretending to be his best friend’s father and other characters. The manga had its first publication on January 19, 1994, and currently has 101 volumes.
A Detective Conan Wedding On Halloween?
Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween will focus on a mystery involving a dangerous and mysterious bomber called Plamya. The film’s setting will be Shibuya, Japan. The film will also feature new characters, such as Detective Miwako (the wedding bride) and Rei/Toru Amuro from the public safety police. Both Miwako and Amuro have terrifying encounters with Plamya.
The movie’s plot will have Detective Conan teaming up with Detective Miwako and Officer Amuro. The three investigators will try to capture Plamya, find out his true motives, and real identity.
As a fan of mysteries, I never knew about Detective Conan. It still shocks me that I never knew about this long-running anime series. But after reading more and doing research on this franchise, I am highly interested in watching the anime and reading some of the mangas. Possibly even watching the films. I have to figure out how to binge-watch twenty-four movies before The Bride of Halloween potentially premieres in North America.
