A high-school detective guy got involved in a weird matter, and he became a little boy. Then, he wears eye-glasses and solves countless cases with his brilliant reasoning. Yes, you know, it describes a Japanese anime; Detective Conan. In the States, it is by the way aired as Case Closed.

Once a year, they have released the new film of Detective Conan from 1997. Ipso facto, we know it is a popular series.

Now, we are recommending the first of the movie series this time, it is named the Time-Bombed Skyscraper.

The story goes as a high-school detective boy; Kudo Shin-ichi receives an invitation. But he became a little boy and lives as Edogawa Conan. He gets to join with his old girl friend; Mohri Ran and her father; Mohri Kogoro. After a while, Conan receives a call from a culprit who says he stole a lot of gunpowder from a magazine by himself and set fire to a residence. Oddly, the mansion was designed by an old architect who invited them some days ago. Edogawa Conan tries to stop his strange game, inferring who he is and what makes him crazy.

How come we recommend this amongst all the films? It is because of the three whys mentioned below.

First, it keeps the taste of the original manga fairly. The movie sets Shin-ichi and Ran as its main roles and plainly gives us their romance on the road of a case. So it is just a story of rom-com mystery.

Next, they have politely described the culprit in the story. The one is not only a makeshift suspect. The movie carefully shows us his madness which led him to crimes after losing morals and sociability. Probably, he is the most popular criminal in the series, isn’t he?

Finally, we have to mention about the moving picture. Although Detective Conan has a lot of murder cases, the film describes bombs terror which looks so powerful and expresses cool-headed insanity in the offender.

Incidentally, there is a rom-com scene of Shin-ichi and Ran in its final stages. The original author Aoyama Gosho says he had longed to write that since he started to write and illustrate Magic Kaito in 1987. In other words, it is the treasured scene. However, we don’t mention a lot here for spoilers.

Anyway, you have got to face Detective Conan: The Time-Bombed Skyscraper when you have Detective Conan.
