Meanwhile, aside from a new manga chapter, the franchise will also have a new movie adaptation coming.

Titled Meitante Conan: Hiiro no Dangan or Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet, the film will be out on Apr. 16, 2021, in Japan.

Initially, the film was set to be out on April 17 this year. However, due to the widespread coronavirus, it was also delayed, along with other supposed TV and movie releases.

TOHO recently dropped a new movie trailer, promoting the film with a Reload Project video featuring 12 movies from the franchise.

Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet is the 24th movie in the franchise that will feature the story of the FBI agent Shuichi Akai. It will also tell the story of Akai’s younger brother and professional shogi player Shukichi Haneda.

Fans will also meet their sister and high school detective Masumi Sera, their mother, Mary Sera, and Conan Edogawa himself.

In the film, Japan is celebrating the upcoming World Sports Games (WSG), which is known as the largest sporting event, not just in Tokyo but in the world.

The movie will give a glimpse of the famous Japanese Bullet, the world’s first vacuum-tube super-conducting linear train. Built with the latest technology, it is set to coincide with the event’s opening ceremonies.

However, amid a party held for the famous sponsors, something terrible is going to happen. There will be a string of kidnapping involving the top executives.

From here, Conan will look at the connection of this latest incident to the serial abductions that happened at the WSG 15 years ago.

So, fans are about to wait for two Detective Conan projects: Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet and Detective Conan: Hannin no Hanzawa-san.
