The 23rd Detective Conan Film to Open in Japan in April 2019

The first 2019 issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine has announced the title and details of the 23rd film in the Detective Conan franchise. The new film is titled Meitantei Conan: Konshō no Fist (Detective Conan: Fist of Blue Sapphire), and will open in Japanese theaters on April 12, 2019.

The film will be set in Singapore, and will be the first Detective Conan film set outside of Japan. The plot will involve a large gem known as the “Blue Sapphire,” which sank to the bottom of the ocean at the end of the 19th century.

The film will focus on Kaitō Kid, Makoto Kyōgoku, and Conan Edogawa. It marks a return of the Kaitō Kid character to the Detective Conan films since his last appearance in Detective Conan: Sunflowers of Inferno, the franchise’s 19th film, in 2015. It is also the first appearance of the character Makoto Kyōgoku in the franchise films. In the film, Makoto, an undefeated karate master with 400 wins, confronts Kid as Kid tries to steal the Blue Sapphire. Meanwhile, Kaitō Kid brings Conan to Singapore against his will.
