Detective Conan (aka Case Closed) will be airing its 1,000th episode on March 6, 2021. To celebrate, a classic episode is being remade, and it has been announced which episode will get this honor. The rebooted mystery will be Episodes 11-12, “The Moonlight Sonata Murder Case.”
The mystery is notable for multiple reasons, amongst them its status as a fan favorite. It’s also the first double-length mystery the anime adaptation ever released. It also marked an important turning point in the plot of the series: it was the case that kicked off Conan’s vow to never let a culprit die.
It was also announced that classical pianist Aimi Kobayashi will be performing “Moonlight Sonata” for the remade episode. The 25-year-old musician has won multiple awards since her childhood debut, and played with orchestras around the world from the Salle Cortot to Carnegie Hall.
