As consolation for the holidays delaying the completion and release of our Conan & Kindaichi Nintendo DS translation project, we wanted to give everyone a little something out of the ordinary. As such, we decided to fulfill a request from the community for translations to these clips from past Detective Conan games that appeared on Playstation in the early 2000s. These games, as you will see below, often featured anime segments as animated by the TV series’ staff and were voiced by the usual actors.
Please note that we will only be translating Detective Conan & Kindaichi Case Files: Chance Encounter of 2 Great Detectives and not either of the two games below. Also be warned that these clips feature spoilers for the games mentioned.
We hope you will enjoy these rarely-seen clips from the Conan universe. Happy New Year!
The news many had been anticipating leading up to its initial premiere has finally come: Crunchyroll has picked up Magic Kaito 1412 to simulcast alongside Detective Conan.
Episodes one through four of the solo Kaitou Kid series are already available for streaming in the U.S. and Canada. New episodes of the series will be added every Saturday at 7:00 AM EST, with two episodes being uploaded each week until the service is caught up.
A synopsis for the series from Crunchyroll is replicated below:
When Kaito Kuroba‘s father dies under mysterious circumstances, he finds out his father’s secret identity; a famous international criminal known as International Criminal 1412: the Phantom Thief, and that he was murdered by a mysterious organization for refusing to aid them in retrieving the “Pandora Gem” – a jewel that grants immortality.
He vows to stop the organization from obtaining the gem, and assumes his father’s identity. His only clues as to the gem’s location are that it glows red under the full moon and that it is a doublet: a gem hidden within a larger gem. Kaito researches and steals famous priceless gems with interesting histories from incredibly well-defended areas, but always returns them after the very next full moon.
The official site for Movie 19 released the first trailer and unveiled new information about the upcoming movie. It has been confirmed that the movie’s official English title is Sunflowers of Inferno (業火の向日葵, Gouka no Himawari).
A certain world-famous painting was to be auctioned at an auction house in New York frequented by the rich. The piece of art was one of van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’, a masterpiece thought to be destroyed in Japan.
Jirokichi Suzuki fights off all bidders by putting forward $300 million to buy it, stating that he intends to collect all seven of the ‘Sunflowers’ paintings that are scattered around the world.
It will be given its greatest exhibition ever in the Japanese museum ‘Lake Rock’, which boasts iron-clad security, he announces live on worldwide news being watched by Conan and Ran.
He has collected seven specialists known as the ‘Seven Samurai’ to protect the Sunflowers, but just as they are about to appear, Kaitou Kid suddenly shows up!
He declares war, stating that he will steal the painting no matter what, before vanishing. Why would Kid make such a statement when he usually only goes after Big Jewels?
And just as everyone starts to panic, a high-school detective appears on the scene, having heard rumors of Kid’s appearance: Kudou Shinichi.
Then, the ‘White Shadow’ launches an aerial assault on the passenger plane carrying the ‘Sunflowers’ to Japan…
The curtain opens on an art mystery that blends truth and lies, focused upon a peerless treasure…
As previously reported, the movie will open on April 18th, 2015 in Japan.
