Conan’s latest mystery to solve might be his spookiest one yet

The story begins with a wedding that is being held at Shibuya Hikarie in Tokyo’s Shibuya district. Surprisingly, the bride is Detective Sato of the Metropolitan Police Department (who might be marrying Harry Wilder). Before the ceremony can proceed an assailant suddenly bursts into the wedding venue and attacks while Conan and the rest of the guests watch in shock.

Detective Takagi tries to protect the bride and is nearly killed. Although Takagi gets out of the altercation unscathed he ends up seeing the image of the Grim Reaper in Sato’s eyes. He saw this same foreboding and ominous image before when Detective Matsuda, a man he was very close to and cared for deeply, was killed in a series of bombings three years prior. Little did Takagi know it, but at that very moment, the perpetrator behind the bombings made his escape from prison.

Meanwhile, a policeman working for the Public Safety Police, Rei Furuya, who was also a close colleague of Detective Matsuda, is trying to track down his killer. In the middle of his investigation, a costumed villain places a bomb collar on him. Conan discovers the underground shelter where Amura is hiding in order to help him disarm the bomb collar. While Conan is helping him Rei tells him a story about an incident that occurred three years ago in Shibuya when he and his now-deceased classmates from the police academy encountered a disguised bomber, who called himself Pramya. Conan begins his investigation in earnest but a shadow looms over him and his allies.

The visual captures a moment when members of the police academy are dressed in their Halloween costumes and are in the middle of a busy intersection in Shibuya at night. Rei Furuya is dressed as Dracula, Jinpei Matsuda is dressed as a werewolf, Kenji Ogiwara is dressed as a devil, Hiromitsu Morofushi is dressed as a mummy, and Ko Date is dressed as Frankenstein.

From October 26 to November 30th Detective Conan had a special Halloween collaboration with Tiktok where a Halloween-themed visual of the police academy was available as an effects setting for a limited time.
