Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet Synopsis
The film will focus on the FBI agent, Shuichi Akai; his younger brother and professional shōgi player, Shukichi Haneda; her younger sister and high school student, Masumi Sera; his mother Mary Sera; and Conan Edogawa himself.
In history, Japan is holding the “World Sports Games” in Tokyo. The “Japanese Bullet,” the first ultra-fast linear train built with the latest Japanese technology and timed to coincide with the WSG opening ceremony, is scheduled to go from Shin Nagoya Station to Tokyo Station at a speed of almost 1000 kilometers per hour.
However, a strange incident occurs during a party held inside the three, which quickly turns into a kidnapping of top executives. Conan deduces that this may be related to a similar event that occurred fifteen years ago. Stay tuned for the next update.
