Detective Conan is a manga that has gone through the test of time and has been running for more than two decades. Unlike other mystery and thriller mangas with no other choice but to end due to lack of interesting plot, Detective Conan has continuously served the readers with great content.
Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet is the 24th movie of the franchise. The movie was originally slated for release in April 2020 but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The official website of the film has announced that the movie will be released in April 2021.
Gosho Aoyama, the author, and illustrator of Detective Conan posted an illustration of Conan, Shuichi Akai, and Masumi Sera, where the characters apologize for the delay and promise to meet fans in April 2021.
The story of the film takes place at a time when Japan is celebrating the upcoming World Sports Games, which is to be held in Tokyo. The inauguration of the “Japanese bullet” (world’s first vacuum superconducting linear train) will be held simultaneously with the games’ opening ceremony.
Japan’s top sponsors have gathered at the venue when suddenly one person after the other starts getting kidnapped. Conan links the incident with a similar case in America 15 years ago. Will Conan be able to save the face of Japan?
The pre-purchased tickets for the film can be used when the film is released in 2021. The specific release date will be informed later.
The anime film is being directed by Tomoka Nagaoka. Takeharu Sakurai is in charge of scriptwriting. The theme song “Scarlet Alibi” will be performed by the Japanese rock band, Tokyo Jihen. Let us sit back and look forward to Conan’s case solving skills and the various new gadgets that he will use.
