The combined 22nd/23rd issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing that Gosho Aoyama will publish a new chapter of his Detective Conan (Case Closed) manga in the magazine’s 24th issue, which Shogakukan will publish on May 13, 2015.
The release will be the first time Aoyama is publishing a new chapter since he announced in March 2015 that he had to put his serialization on an irregular schedule. Aoyama explained that he had gone to the hospital for an operation. He assured his fans that the surgery went as planned without incident, but noted that he would be staying in the hospital for a little while longer.
The combined 22nd/23rd issue teases that the new chapter’s story will focus on Shinichi and Ran, and will tell the story of how and where they met each other. The issue further teases that Shinichi might reveal his secret identity.
VIZ Media is publishing the manga in English.
