The film’s new story to unveil
The new film, Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan, centers on the FBI agent Shuichi Akai. Also highlighted in the movie is his younger brother and professional shōgi player Shukichi Haneda. His younger sister and high school detective Masumi Sera. Shuichi Akai’s mother, Mary Sera, and Conan Edogawa himself.
Furthermore, Japan celebrates the upcoming World Sports Games (WSG) in the story, Tokyo’s world’s largest sporting event. The world’s first vacuum-tube super-conducting linear train, Japanese Bullet, is built with the latest Japanese technology. It is timed to coincide with the WSG opening ceremonies.
For up to 1,000 kilometers per hour (about 600 miles per hour), the said train would be running from Shin Nagoya Station to Tokyo Station. However, a bizarre incident leads to a string of kidnappings of top executives. This happened during a party held by famous significant sponsors.
Moreover, in the WSG 15 years earlier, Conan deduces a possible link to serial abductions in Boston.
