More new Detective Conan Netflix spinoffs are coming

The Culprit Hanzawa isn’t the only spinoff set to arrive on Netflix shortly; Detective Conan: Zero’s Tea Time will be available in July 2022. Zero’s Tea Time, produced by TMS Entertainment (Lupin the Third Part 6), starring Toru Furuya (Dragon Ball Super) as undercover detective Rei Furuya. The animation is directed by Tomochi Kosaka (Dr. Stone), and the narrative is written by Yoshiko Nakamura (Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle).

The Bride of Halloween, the latest film in the Detective Conan franchise, had its theatrical debut in Japan on April 15. Yugo Kanno rearranged the legendary Detective Conan theme tune for the film. Yugo Kanno, the composer, highlighted the pressures of changing the music, saying, “To avoid disappointing everyone, I arranged it with the utmost regard for the original. I made adjustments after obtaining advice from Katsuo Ohno-sensei (the theme’s original composer) and received the OK, which pleased me as if I had received official approval.”

The Detective Conan franchise began in 1994 when Gosho Aoyama started publishing his Cased Closed manga in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday. The series has since become one of the best-selling manga of all time. The plot revolves around a great investigator turned into a child after being abducted by a crime gang and forced to consume an unknown drug.
