The recent issue of Otonafami contained an interview with Aoyama:
Someone on 2ch apparently has it and posted the following:
'Excuse me! It was in the June issue. It's no longer on sale... it was only two
pages, and Aoyama appeared on it. He didn't say anything important but when they
asked him about what will happen in the story, he answered:
"First, there will be confrontation with Bourbon, the new Black Organization member.
About the movie, '13 bullets' number is a hint. It will be at a 'high' place...
Ah, I can't say more or it will be a spoiler (smile). I hope you enjoy them both
(the movie and manga)." Sorry for the lack of explanation.'

Oh god...this can't be happening...it's already started....
Whatever you say about resistance to the drug and all that, this things only lasted for 4 hours!
Mouri-no-ossan is concerned about Shinichi, but Kudo, being his usual pig-headed self, starts
presenting the solution of the case. The murderer passed string through the holes in the window
in order to open it. After the 'deduction show' Shinichi really starts to feel the pain and is
absolutely in agony. Satou-keiji suggests calling for an ambulance, but Hattori says, "He can't
go to the hospital!" This is where Ran grabs Kudo's arm.
Ran: "Come on let's go! To the hospital!"
Ran: "Go to the hospital, get better, and when you're alright, let me hear the answer to your deduction!"
Ran:"Because, because...I think I'm sure...that the answer to your deduction is....is...right....
So I'm not going to let go of your hand until we get to the hospital! I promise!"
Haibara shoots her with the spare Tranquilising Gun Watch.
Conan gently wakes Ran up in the back of Hakase's car. Ran discovers that she's holding Conan's hand
and feels really bitter, even sad, because she let go of Shinichi again...
Haibara is watching from the front seat and she smiles softly, "Such unnecessary bitterness...."
File 653 Possible Spoilers:
Suddenly Ran starts to think: He's going to go away....just like before....
She grabs hold of his clothes. Shinichi: 'Huh?' Ran doesn't say anything...
Shinichi: 'It's not just you, you know.' Ran: 'Eh?' 'There are things that even
I want to ask and say as well... so, please wait for me... but according to my
deduction... I'm getting the impression that what you want to ask me.... is the
same as what I want to ask you...
Then on the last page, Kudo-kun and Heiji seem to have worked out the truth behind
the case, but... Heiji: 'What's the matter with you? What's with all the sweat?'
Haibara is watching Kudo from a distance, checking her watch. And this is where
the file ends...
My understanding of Shinichi & Ran moment (from the Japanese spoiler) is: Ran thought
Shinichi was gonna leave again, therefore she hold his clothes, but could not say anything.
Shinichi said "It's not just you...."; Ran: "Eh?"; Shinichi: "I also have something to ask
and something to say, therefore wait for me... "
Shinichi "Probably the thing you and I are wanting to ask each other are just the same..."
The chapter ended with Haibara looking at both Shinichi and her watch.
Ran's way. Ran (is going to leave... Shinichi is going to leave)
(this translation... give Ran a clothe to wear?)
Shinichi: "oh?" (the expression is not clear)
Shinichi: this is jealously, because you....
Shinichi: hearing things and wanting to say something, is OO (smooth... there is no sense)
This is the reason why I'm waiting for you.
According to my reasoning this may be...
friends since childhood and the thing what I heard (feelings?)
I thought it was the same
Then, in the last page, Shinichi and Hattori found out the truth behind the case.
But, Hattori: What's going on? (saw a death character... does it mean death?), this sweat...
(it is possible that they are referring to the corpse's sweat)
the last sentence is a little bit complicated, it roughly means that Shinichi and Haibara,
holding a watch, the original meeting had been unconscious…… (of course there are some problems
in the translation…… = = need to rely on many words and context in order to translate properly)

Then: God...I might be going back...
I'm going back to being Conan. Right now....
In front of her... No way am I ...
Hattori says that Shinichi has a really bad cold and says that he needs to go to
the toilet. So the two pootle off to the toilet. Shinichi finds out from Hattori
that the antidote only has a working-time of 24 hours.
And so Hattori tells him that once he goes back to being Conan he can hide in his bag.
Then all of a sudden Ran and co. arrives, because she's really really concerned....
Hattori tells her that Kudo's fine and turns away the doctor Ran's brought with her.
Meanwhile... in the toilet: (This is what Kudo's saying) Kuso! It's always like this! Always!
I always go back before I can tell her anything! Dammit!
(More heart attack sounds) AAARRGG...... And, yep, Kudo goes back to Conan.
Conan: Gotta get inside the back.... otherwise she'll find out....
And then what? There's knocking from the cubicle next door...
Ran and co. thought they heard a scream (which they did) and tell Hattori to let them
through or else... The door opens... and Shinichi comes out... What happened before was that
the knocking from the next door cubicle was Hakase and Haibara and they gave him another
tablet.... and this one lasts less than 24 hours.
A little bit later: Ran had wanted to ask him whether he'd seen her panty when he'd
bandaged her thigh (talk about ungrateful, man) But in her heart, she's saying: This
is wrong! What I really wanted to ask you was.....what I really wanted to find out was...
And then at that point a new case begins. Takagi and Satou drive past them and they seem to be in a rush.
Addendum by Sere: So it's the case, that there is a car that touched the guard rail and in the
front seat the driver's condition is kind of strange. They stop with kogoro's car in front of the other
one. They look into the car and see blood and that he got strangled with a wire. Then they get the
information that there is a blockade at a check point in 1 kilometer away. Hattori says "he got killed...
this driver got strangled". Shinichi "AA! ... this is a closed room case"
So Ran and Kudo are shoved together and start talking... just talking:
Shinichi: "So... what exactly did you want to ask me?"
Ran: "Well nothing really... just thanks for...you know...bandaging me up."
Ran: "You did do the bandaging, didn't you? Shinichi?"
Shinichi: "Yeah... there was a pretty useful first aid box in the lodge."
Ran: "You... you didn't see ...them.... did you?"
Ran: "You know.... when you did the bandaging..."
Shinichi: "Well, when I bandaged up your thigh there was, like, a little bit of white."
Ran: "Oh god! So you did see them! Great!"
Shinichi: "Don't be stupid! It's not as though I wanted to see them... it just accidentally... happened."
Ran: "Oh sorry! Having let you accidentally see what you didn't want to see!"
At this point, Kazuha, who's sitting in between Ran and Kudo says: "Hey Ran, do you want
to change seats? Then it'd be easier for you guys to talk."
Ran: "Oh no! You just stay there, I am absolutely fine with that!"
Heiji(in his head): This is so stupid.
Mouri-no-ossan (in his head): That bastard! When I get home I'm gonna kill him!

It start with Ran crying while looking at the white hair person, the liar/fake/imposter
starts to confess and the white hair person joins in at that time, the liar/imposter takes
out a gun/pistol. The white hair person says: "It's no use" The white hair person picks up
the cartriges. Confirming that, the liar says: stupid, when the white hair person kicks the
gun/pistol away. The deduction start with the white hair person revealing the face
(I suppose is the liar's face)
The liar's true motive is to conceal the crime that he commited with Shinichi's name
pretenting to have amnesia to deceive Shinichi's companion, also being naked and having a
heavy cold. The liar saw Shinichi call the ambulance, then arrives at home to think about
the worst outcome that can happen. At that time couldn't save him because the body was
changing, and takes out a gun looking at "failure is death", saying that it refers to a
certain person, in order to prevent having death in mind, to prevent this occurance just
like last time the police's gun was being stolen (this sentence is a little weird and I'm
not sure they are refering to what...)
the reason for puncture is valuable (not sure what they mean by that...) forcing one self
to accept that his subconsciousness (consciousness/psychology) to accept that it is correct
all the money and medals are lost/gone, also the quoit rings, and small hammer that looks
like a bread are trown into the lake, under a tree, the fingerprint on a pocket and a knife
was found, it was an imitation of a bulgary case.
The head village's blood type is AB, Daiki is not the head village's son, and this is the
true motive, Because it cannot be announced, that is why it is said to be due of cancer
Shinichi tells the police about the truth about Makoto's family. After investigation, Makoto
didn't care about the impact.
Zenthisoror: So let's have a go at translating these possible spoilers....hmmm: The first part of the spoiler is filled with Chinese characters instead of Japanese ones... so I can't really tell who's who, but
Zenthisoror: it's looks like: Ran keeps crying... Ran doesn't need to see the Shiragami without a wig because she knows who it is already... the fake Shinichi starts to have some kind of crazy fit... and then oh
Zenthisoror: man... hmmm...I actually can't tell what the next Chinese bit is... but it looks like the real Shinichi solves the case? And then he starts getting those heart-attack things....
Zenthisoror: The second part says: Things to do with th case - Something about a second one... and how the spoiler person feels sorry for Makoto and Heiji let's him go but someone grabs his arm. Shinichi looks
Zenthisoror: as though he;s in pain because the heart attacks have come on (that;s one thing the spoilers agree on, I suppose)
Zenthisoror: The results from the policeman's study with Heiji's lucky-charm: The fingerprints on the piece of chain in the charm and the ones on the knife don't match.
Zenthisoror: Hearing from the police-person that the prints don't match Kazuha says, "But a charm's just a charm, right? What's it got to do with the knife?"
Zenthisoror: And Kogorou says: "What didn't match?"
Zenthisoror: And at this point the Shiragami comes in.
Zenthisoror: "It is a godsend which is a lifelong symbol for each and every one... and since no one has the same it becomes invaluable evidence in a criminal investigation... fingerprints, right?"

Shinichi's going to go away! Shinichi!
Ran wakes up in a little hut. Her wounds have been treated by someone.
Hattori finds Ran in the hut, along with a white wig and lots of empty bullet shells.
The person who called the police and ambulance had a cold, and the person who called
out the reporter from her hotel claimed himself to be Shinichi. Yep, the reporter thought
that he was faking his memory loss. Hattori works out that Conan must have attempted to
get out via the window and thinks - "You've got to be joking! Did he/ is he/ etc. ?" The
mayor was particularly good at throwing quoit rings, something he always cleared with
perfect marks. Hattori asks the police to investigate something for him and orders Mouri
to make a bonfire (?) Suddenly there's a scream from the policeman, but when they all ask
him what happened he simply tells them that he had met the Shiragami and lost a part of
his memory...and his gun holster is for some apparent reason open, but it hasn't been taken
away. Hattori gathers the people of the mayor's household and starts his 'mystery show'
Hattori says: "From whichever angle I look at this case this guy looks like the murderer...
well, yeah, of course, because he is the murderer!"
Kudo: "That reporter...she was trying to expose what I'd done last year... (there's a chunk here
that's been cut out by the spoiler person). I got scared, and so..." He starts to cry bitterly.
Ran: "Who is this guy? No! This guy isn't Shinichi! Not the guy I was waiting for! Not the one I
was looking forward to meeting again!"
The house is lit up by lightning, and at the same time the Shiragami arrives
Ran: "This is awful...Kazuha-chan was right...now my tears... my tears won't stop..."
A lot of supplementary explanation... There is a receiver in the other room of the cottage.
The door to the other room has wooden planks nailed on to it and is completely sealed so the
black guy enters and leaves the sealed room via the window. The other room of the house has
lots of photos of Shinichi, including the ones that got torn by the black guy. There are some
broken pieces of mirror on the desk along with the writing “failure can only be paid with death”

Shinichi is looking in his own hands and sees the knife and says: "Did, Did I do this?
Did I do this? The reporter is actually not dead, they believe there are still some breathing.
Mouri, Kazuha, Ran and Hattori wanted to call the ambulance and the police, but doing so,
Shinichi will become a suspect. Hence, called the ambulance. Hattori removed the possibility
that Shinichi can the murder and believe that is must be one of the villagers who did it.
They wanted to hide Shinichi but the ambulance and police already came (they haven't called
them yet) They left everything to Kogoro; Hattori/Heiji and Shinichi escape through a small road.
Shinichi is hidden in trunk of the car and Hattori deals with the police. On the other hand,
Ran heard if Shinichi sees Shiragami, he will surely gain his memory back. She went to the forest
alone. She saw the white haired person and was so scared that she couldn't talk. When she was,
she fell off the cliff (I'm not saying a big one...) Behind where Ran fell off, the white haired
person shows up. When Ran was running, she said: "I beg you! Please return Shinichi to how he
was before(Shinichi before losing his memory)!! If you can I can give you my heart... So please
give Shinichi, the real Shinichi... (give back him back to me) I beg you!! Shiragami sama!!!
cynthia: Its basically like the reporter's not dead and Shinichi's muttering
"did i did this?" and then the gang decide to just call the hospital since shinichi
would be suspected by the police. The police come still (maybe someone called them
to make shinichi in trouble) and then shinichi and heiji ran away and shinichi hid
in a car while heji goes with the police. And then ran heard that if shinichi sees
the shiragami his memories will comes back so she went to find that shiragami. She sees
it on a tree and was afraid and fell from a cliff and behind the fallen ran is shiragami...

9 years ago, Mokoto's sister disappeared, found death in the woods 2 days later.
Their father who went to search for her has gone missing as well. Hirikawa claims
to have seen a white haired monster that beared his/her teeth while laughing. The
village head was a candidate for japanese repesentative in Olympics... or he
participated it, i'm not sure. Which game it was is not known. Some of the medals
don't have strings on them for some reason. Something about there being only one brass
statue...each one costs 5 million yen. In Makoto's room, there is large picture of
Shinichi (since Makoto admires him). But Makoto is shocked by Shinichi's deduction.
He tries to get in contact with Shinichi but can't get a hold of him. The newspaper
reporter tells amnesiac Shinichi "You might be able to decieve the friends that came
with you, but you can't decieve my eyes. When you have given up(decieving), come to
my hotel. I'll report the truth that shouldn't be said...." Ran tells Kazuha that when
she looks at Shinichi, she feels that he's far away. The long haired stranger is
breathing hard on top of a tree. Next morning, someone sees Shinichi going to village
head's room. Heiji goes there and finds Shinichi covered in blood, with death body of
the newspaper reporter.
9 years ago, Mokoto's sister disapeared in the forest/woods. The
body was discovered 2 days later. The father who went out for search is
still missing. Hirikawa sees the white-haired monster, laughing at him with
its teeth bared, in a tree. Village head will become a representant for the Olympics.
After the game, there are a lot of medals that doesn't have a string attached
to it. There is only one bronze statue of Deva King (used the name that is
already in the translated spoiler), costing 500 million yen. Makoto's room
is filled with Shinichi's picture who ihe worship. He was very suprised with
Shinichi's detection. He tried to contact him but didn't work. A news reporter,
posted a note to amnesic Kudo (there might be another tranlation for that
sentence but that's what I get) "friends that come along can be deceived,
my eyes cannot deceive me,. Welcome to my hotel for those who listens to
destiny/God's words. Wanting to report the truth Ran, looking at Shinichi
far away, said " I don't feel right" (I'm supposing she's trying to say that
something is not right) A long haired person on a tree is panting to breath.
The next day, Shinichi went into the village head's room, sight testimoney.
Hattori sees Shinichi covered with blood and the corpse of the journalist.

A black person hits the picture of Shinichi in a newspaper article for
some time with a knife. Conan and Co. went together with Heiji to a place
called "Achioku Homura". Heiji got a letter with another letter for Shinichi
in there. They are discussing the content which includes wrong reasonings
in Shinichi's past. The letter is confusing because they don't know why Shinichi
is included and why he is told to come alone. As they reach the townhall, and
Shinichi's name is mentioned, there seems to be heavy agitation. So they go to
a house to do some more research, but before leaving Conan mistakenly switches
his medicine with the antidote for APTX. Conan has to jump out of a window, but
there are the cliffs so he falls down in the sea. Ran and Co. are looking for him
when they get to know about a boy who was caught out of the sea, and it is Shinichi.
She calls him with his name, and he answers "Shinichi? So that's my name?"

Having heard from Ran about Shinichi, Okiya starts saying that he'd like to meet him. Conan finds out about this
by a text-message, and so replies, "Okay. You go ahead. I'll see you there." Okiya smirks. Although Ran, Sonoko and
Okiya arrive at the place where the aeroplanes were found/ spotted, there are so many people there it makes investigating
pretty much impossible, so as they haven't eaten lunch yet they decide to buy something from the convenience store.
Okiya however tells Ran to stay there, as 'he may come', and leaves the group. A paper aeroplene lands by Ran.
When she opens it up, it shows a photograph of a man's burnt corpse.
(Translation by Mina)
After hearing about Shinichi from Ran, Okiya says he would like to meet Shinichi. Conan, who learns of this through mail,
replies "Got it. Go ahead of him". Okiya smiles. Ran, Sonoko and Okiya arrive to the paper airplane area. However, there
are a lot of people so they cannot investiage. Okiya tells Ran and Sokono that since he hasn't eaten, he's going to a
convenience store, and tells them to wait there since he (note: I'm assuming he meant Shinichi) might show up. A paper plane
flys to where Ran is. When she opens it up, it was picture of a burned man's corpse.

(Spoiler verified? Link to title name)
Translated by Mina!
At school, while reading news reports on his cellphone, Conan suddenly remembers about Bourbon.
Putting that aside, Ran and Sonoko, who came to clean Kudou's house, bump in to Okiya, who was
staying there. Out of reflex, Ran kicks Okiya's jaw but doen't seem to have effect. Now that
the misunderstanding has been resolved, Okiya gives them a deduction of where the two of them
had just eaten. (kinda like how Shinichi does this to Agasa back in Vol. 1. But unlike that time,
Okiya isn't trying to prove a point, he just does it for "fun", for lack of better word). Seeing
Okiya deducting like this, Ran feels like he resembles someone whom she has met before (but
doesn't seem to be Shinichi). Here, Sonoko comes up with idea of having a deduction competition
between Shinichi and Okiya. She e-mails Shinichi to solve mystery of about 100 paper airplanes
that will be flown in two days. Shinichi and Okiya deduct that this(the paper airplanes) is an
SOS at pretty much same time.

While they are talking, a man in Rolls-Royce drives by and they talk to him,
but he (very rudely) insults Agasa "Then stay there forever, old geezer!"
Agasa and D.Boys start talking again when there is suddenly a car explosion.
From the emblem of the car, they realize it's the same man that passed by earlier.
Police come and they speculate that the driver was smoking while driving and that caused the explosion.
Ginbayashi(person who knew Sudou, the driver), cries and says "I thought he'd said he quit smoking".
Hearing this Conan realizes something is a miss, and this is not an accident but a crime.

His information gathering skill is superb..."
"His code name is... Bourbon! Be on the lookout!"
"Inferring from Rena's rough speech pattern, this new member is
quite skilled, and the target is probably... the blond girl that
was called Sherry"...
"As an FBI, I would like to stick with that girl to protect her,
but that would put her living place at risk. So I will try to avoid
seeing her for now..."
(To Conan) "It is your job to protect her and watch out for
dangers in the surroundings!

The title is "Red, White and Yellow".
Jodie phones Conan that she has changed the new handphone, that is why
Conan cannot call her by using the old phone number.
Jodie told Conan that she received information from Rena that there is
a member of Black Organization who is a great detective-like person.
Inspector Yuminaga appears in File 622. This is a policeman
from DC 39-1 to DC 39-5, Red Horse Case.
Ai-chan feels that there is a member of Black Organization mixed
inside the three suspects of the case.
* Bourbon is a whiskey distilled from a fermented mash containing
not less than 51 percent corn in addition to malt and rye.
Detailed Summary: http://mina-nya.livejournal.com/11361.html#cutid1
Update: The information at the bottom regarding the anime
special on 10/15 came from the spoiler, and is now on Koware.
The probability of the spoiler being true seems very high now.
'Series solution. This case has nothing to do with Kyoukyoku.
(I think the spoiler skipped the solution of case itself to the fun part)
They are leaving the scene. As Conan is going to drop by at the
bookstore, Hondou volunteers to stay with him. Hondou tells Conan
that he decided to go to America; but not as Witness Protection
Program, but in order to get into CIA. Conan asks why he came back
to school if he's going to America.
Hondou: Although it was short, I wanted to see my friends before
I go... And I wanted to also tell Ran-san...
Hondou's had a crush on Ran since first sight. *love*
Hondou asks Conan for a way to contact Shinichi to ask if it's
okay to confess (his feelings) to her.
Hondou: I, different from Shinichi-san, won't leave Ran-san by
herself! My wish is to bring her to America and live happily!
Hondou: Not you... I want to ask Shinichi-san...
Conan: SO I AM SAYING NO!!
Hondou is overwhelmed by Conan's fierceness.
Hondou: The... Then... Are you...
Conan: Yeah... I am!
Suddenly, Hondou laughs out saying the mystery is solved.
Hondou suspected that Kogorou, along with bad guys, was
hiding Mizunashi Rena. He says he noticed dramatic increase
of Kogorou's detective skill and Conan being with him,
so he suspected "Conan=Shinichi" from the beginning.
At the end, Hondou says someone in the FBI is MIA, and he leaves.

Additional Dialogue -
Hondo: As I thought! You are that Kudo Shinichi!
Conan: As you thought? You're saying it like you knew it already...
Hondo: Yeah, I anticipated that! Ever since Sleeping Kogoro started
to show up, you were absence from school. Furthermore, I happen to be
not clumsy boy for once, and fell (on the floor) on purpose.
Hondo: "Remember! When I first met you, I said 'Nice to meet you, Detective Mouri'
Conan: Then what you said earlier was to drag me (to reveal my true identity)?
Hondo: Ah, but my love from first sight to Ran-san is true! Please make her happy!
Finally info about the anime:
-Conan is on a break from 9/10 to 10/8.
-Resumes October 15th at 7pm with a 1-hour police love story special.
This was posted alongside spoilers for several other mangas.
Therefore, it is most likely true.
Issue #38 will apparently be a break, so it looks like 2 weeks of
breaks (till August 29th) after this file due to the double issue.
(Translation [clarification thanks to Eastsoldier])
Hondou returns to school.
As Conan, Haibara, Ran, Sonoko, and Hondou walk back
from school, Haibara notices that they are being followed.
Conan, who noticed before Haibara, suspects that it is an
FBI agent keeping eye on Hondou. Except Haibara, the four
of them congratulate Hondou's return in a Karaoke box.
Immediately after Hondou- who wasn't feeling well- comes back
in 30 minutes, the man who was following them is found dead.
Usual kind of development. No progress.
Call is from horse racing colleague.
No file next issue."

File 611 (Possibly/Reliability has really been up in the air)
(Was the original spoiler person arrested a couple weeks back? We should
know for sure by judging the actual contents of 611 when we get it).
(Translation by Eastsoldier)
[F611 Starting from the last week's scene] To the suspect Conan asked the question,
police, after knowing she is hairdresser, ask her what she was doing at the time of the crime.
And she declares that she was cutting hair, and Kisaki also seconds that.
Kogorou doubts her[suspect], and fights with Kisaki defending her. When she was cutting hair,
the body was already disposed, so the police think her alibi is solid.
But Conan seems not convinced yet. Anyway they go to suspect's hair salon,
and suspect and Kisaki explains which chair was used for the haircut at the time
of the crime. During that time, Conan takes a look around inside the salon. He found
something on the ceiling of bathroom, and asks Takagi to pull him up to the little
window in there. Takagi willingly do so. Looking at the scene from the window,
Conan says "I see... [suspect] used a trick from here," making a smile. [Continues next]

Megure says "Si-Ran-Pu-Ri" (trans. 'act as if you don't know,'
but it doesn't matter here). To 3 of them, it sounds like 'Sit Down Please,'
so they sat, but to Tobey Keynes, it is pure Japanese.
So he couldn't read what memo says, got scared, took the memo.
Toby confesses as the memo is found in his pocket.
[SC] At night road of mountain, Akai and Kir meets,
but Akai comes in different direction. He says he went around to make sure that
Kir came alone. To Rena asking if he is sure now, Akai says yes.
Gin and Vodka sees Akai/Mizunashi through the monitor. Rena shoots Akai,
then Akai bleeds from mouth.
As he looks back, he sees a car far behind his car. Akai says, "Porsche 356A... [scoffs]...
"I guess this is it for me..." or "You did that much to get me..."

Here is a blog's thoughts on the new file.
Translated by Eastsoldier.
First Akai's past, and now Camel's... [Aoyama] likes past storytelling...
thinking such things, here goes the impressions (^^;) Well, as suspected,
the agent who made a mistake on the mission 2 years ago seems to be Camel...
Speaking of that, it is an unacceptable mistake... Akai is ignoring it,
so he shouldn't have to worry as much... Or maybe there was a thing that
BO doesn't have 'old people'... [Camel] probably didn't know what BO really
was back then... since it would have been so at that time. From this file,
the most memorable thing is, of course, Akemi's tears... Camel's past seems
like continuance of Akai's past (^^;) [Akemi] probably knew Akai was FBI at
some point, but since she already liked him, so acted as if she didn't know
(T-T).... because if she said so, then Akai would no longer stay there...
So, in other words, when Akai is to say that himself, that means that
time together is ended. Even though it was a deceiving relationship, she
probably wanted to prolong that time just a bit more... FBI and BO... once
parted, then they probably would never meet again... And Akai--he has been
showing much of him so that she noticed. More I think about it, it only becomes
And one more thing! Trying to consult with Jodie, James tries to call her.
Trying to consult with Akai, Jodie tries to call him. Are you guys willing to
do anything on your own? ...too late to mention this now, but... I feel sorry
for Akai (T-T). Well Jodie cannot be helped, but I hoped at least James sent
Akai off with dignity... From looks of it, without Akai, FBI is no good.
Camel was also no good, but he's grown from a sense guilt and responsibility...
In that sense, I know Camel can be relied, but... So, that Camel, with the case,
has his hands tied, so now is the chance, but...
Where/How does BO get police intel? FBI would be hard since they are on guard...
(But if they searched around the hospital, it seems it'd be possible to know that
FBI are there.) I don't want to think that there is a spreading rumor "Camel is
held as a suspect~" (smile) The only ones who know are Jodie as she got called,
and James and Akai... probably(^^;) Since police are, of course, "that way (sarcastic)"
that's where BO is getting intel, probably. Well... what is Akai going to do......
I wonder what the progression of next file would be.
Gin and the boss, out of suspicion against Mizunashi,
orders to kill Akai by herself, with camera/radio tapped.
To Mizunashi saying she needs time, Gin pulls a gun on her,
saying it's no good unless she calls Akai out right here and now.
[SC to Inspector's] Talking about the memo president left being a 'dying message.'
Content was "Bring my tux." Secretary says tuxedo is needed for party tonight.
Is it just a memo then?
[SC] With Gin's gun pointed at her, Mizunashi calls Akai, telling him to come out.
Akai consented. Akai knows it is a trap, but also knows Mizunashi will be in danger if he doesn't go.
When James tries to call Jodie in order to come up with a plan, Akai stops him.
[SC to Inspector's] With memo still unsolved, investigation is at a halt.
To Jodie saying she can't use her cell, Conan lends her his. Their phones are Memory Card-type.
(*like an SIM card system in US) By changing the cards, the phone can be used under her name.
Although the looks are different, inside is the familiar cell phone of oneself.
"What is seen cannot be reliable." From Conan's words, Jodie got a hint,
and now knows everything that's happened.
Shocked at Camel's appearance, Conan says, "Why (How)"?
Camel, soaked with sweat, makes a hand expression for "shush" secretly.
Conan, making sense from his recollection, starts to doubt Camel.
Inspector summarizes the case. The time criminal could use for escape seems to be about 5 minutes.
[A Model in the restaurant at housetop. An English teacher in the toilet.
Camel who was racing down the stairs]
Suspects explain themselves. Camel was working out.
He says he would get into trouble if his occupation is known.
When Inspector asks what his job is, Camel cannot answer.
3 of the Detective Boys say, "because his occupation is a professional killer!"
[Conversation continues] Camel cannot answer. Conan makes a call.
[Scene change to hospital] Jodie is who Conan called. Akai is also
added in to conversation. Jodie goes out.
[Scene change to Conan, Time passed] Jodie protects Camel's safety.
Jodie says they are lovers. [Conversation continues]
A subordinate appears with a paper bag. Inside, there is a
raincoat, gloves, and a pistol.
[Conversation continues] [Conan notices something, and
Jodie notices something]
[Scene change to Rena, on the phone] After she hangs up, Gin appears.
Rena seemed to have been wiretapped (transmitter/mic).
Gin has an assignment for Rena given from the Boss himself.
If she takes out a certain person, they [BO] will believe her.
Rena says, "well, who would that be?"
Gin replies, "FBI Agent, Akai Shuuichi."[Continues next]
[Recollection ends after suggestion to Rena to return to BO]
[Recollection seems to have been explanation to the FBI]
Conditions Rena is going back: Witness Protection Program for Eisuke;
CIA mission of her father will be first-priority.
[Conversation] To Jodie, who says people in the hospital are in danger,
Conan says, "Probably, by now, Mizunashi Rena-san is..."

Gin won't do anything now because of/for Rena.
Rena and BO-woman on the bike see each other.

Haibara says she wants to meet Akai once. Conan answers ambiguously.

Suspicious person who is brought is, once again, Camel. [Continues next]
Series Solution File 604 [Older Sister/Younger Brother]
Points (From Eastsoldier):
Hondou Rena and her dad are CIA; Eisuke did not know this; Rena acted as a different person [ie. seemed to not know Eisuke] since she went undercover.
Lie-detecting trick Rena used for Conan is used usually in CIA. And when she said, "Thanks for helping me" (Conan picked up her shoe) that means she thanked him for not having to kill the guy.
V48 Kir "Our achievement is not usually known to public, but..." is usually said by CIA.
Hondou's death was a fake, after realizing Rena had a transmitter on her (since she was new) for Gin to come.
Hondou : "Dont give up! An ally will appear if you keep waiting! Finish the mission instead of me!" (Here, he calls Rena "Hidemi")
The real reason Rena requested a case (doorbell one) to Kogorou is that she wanted him to protect Eisuke.
Conan knew Rena was awake when he quickly went back for 'something he forgot' ; the sheet was moved slightly.
Conan knew Eisuke was hiding from conversation w/ Nakamichi (Shinichi's classmate). Conan said "Eisuke" but he quickly replied with "Hondou" (There is another Eisuke in Shinichi's class)

[602 spoiler key points - from Eastsoldier]:
-TV was a fake to gather FBI. After figuring out their[BO] objective, Conan said "Don't go to Rena's room." But it was too late. BO guys talk while looking at laptop. James suggests taking Rena out of hospital.
-Conan then suggests taking a Beetle (VW?). Akai says we can no longer put civilians in danger, and seems to have thought of a good plan after hearing Conan's words.
-When FBI were to pick a driver, Andre puts his hand up. When Akai says don't be scared, Andre says "There is no one to mourn for me if I die." Jodi think back when she met him, gets suspicious.
-Conan glares at him, then talks to Akai. Andre goes up to start the car, Jodi tells him to switch (her as driver). Andre hands her key, then punches her in stomach. File Ends...

File 600 コナン
Translated by Mina on the cbox! Thank you!
Akai and Conan have conversation.
As he enters the hospital room, Conan says, “the victory or loss of this is all or nothing…”* (“ichi ka bachika”)
As Conan and Akai look down at the close up of Rena’s sleeping face,
Conan asks “Do you want to join in[to the plan]?” (doesn’t actually say plan but that’s what’s pretty much implied.)
Color up until here.
FBI is in middle of strategy meeting.
Important looking person says that in the worst case scenario, Rena will be rescued out[of the hospital].
One of the additional investigators suggests taking Rena out now. The important looking person dismisses that idea.
The meeting continues. Akai and Conan show up to the meeting.
The additional investigator seems to have strong faith in the drive-tech.
FBI woman tells Akai that she may have seen the additional investigator somewhere before.
She has suspicious feelings about him.
Akai leaves the hospital room. The important-looking person says Akai is the trump card.
Scene change to the city.
In restaurant, people with abdominal pain appear. In train station, abnormality in throat, eyes, and smell occur. In movie theater, a fire starts.
Scene change to the hospital. The woman notices the fire. Akai (“so you came that way…”)
At reception desk, a package for James Black arrives. The sender is Kusuda Rikumichi
The content is a potted plant. It’s kind of like a warning. (The flower is apparently called Odamaki.)
In language of flowers, Conan interprets the flower to mean, “Will obtain without fail!!” “Determined to win”
Flood of patients come to the hospital. The FBI at the entrance announces that they cannot check them all.
The FBI predict that the BO came to investigate using the human-wave tactic (*in other words, by hiding themselves in the flood of people)
“The aim is something else…” says Akai. Conan says he hears sound from the sent potted plant.
Conan, “That sound….it’s getting louder and louder”. The file ends with the ticking sound.
The front cover is Conan and alcohol person(?). Long haired, hat wearing person.
[Sounds like Gin to me]
-Entrace of the Black Organization.
-Setting change to the hospital.
-Akai's lost sweetheart appears to somehow be Haibara.*
A followup post was made a few hours later saying:
Sorry. Correction. I made a mistake while reading.
Akai's lover's younger sister is Haibara.
From conversation with the FBI jiisan Conan thought:
(Then that scientist really is Haibara!!)
| Younger sister scientist of Akai's lover.
-Hondou enters Rena's place shortly thereafter.

If Mizunashi Rena is a coma, a doctor will conclude it. But those [ that it is

that it does not understand -- three persons -- watch -- ‚Æ -- it has said. It says that
he is one person, Conan is consent, and it is following next number that Akai attaches

there is consciousness midway and there is description. Three to of suspects the

who assume covert roles in organizations without ties to the government for
which they work. Such agents or operatives are typically abbreviated in
espionage lingo as a NOC (pronounced "knock")."

Q: The animated version of "Detective Conan" is welcoming it's 10 years anniversary. Looking back on these ten years, How do you feel?
Gosho: Even though that is a long time, to me... it feels like a blink of an eye.
Q: Are there any differences between now and then?
Gosho: (Conan) grew taller. *laugh* In the beginning, I was drawing him at the cute size of three head sizes. Now I'm slowly drawing him at 4 head size, because kids in real life are taller now.
Q: What's your favorite moment in the anime?
Gosho: "The moonlight sonata case". In the manga, there was no sound so it felt better with music in the anime. Other ones, are like the bomb case of Sato-san.
Q: How'd you feel when they decided to make an anime?
Gosho: Conan is based on logical deduction, so I thought it was better to make it into a play. As an anime, if there's no action, if it can't make people happy, it wouldn't be accepted. At the time I felt even if Conan was made into an anime, it won't be accepted so... I thought it would be over very soon *laugh*
Q: You never expected that it would last ten years?
Gosho: Never... I'm surprised myself.
Q: What's the most important thing to take note of when drawing Conan?
Gosho: When it was made into an anime, I told the artist not to draw Conan like the edogawa detective group's Rin-san but draw him like Kogorou, a person who looks like he's overseeing the whole case.
Q: What do you feel when looking at the anime?
Gosho: Conan's voice is my wife's voice, but in the anime she'll say "yatte ne" in a voice more fitting of her beautiful attitude *laugh*
Q: What's hardest to draw in Conan?
Gosho: The corpse, if you draw it too scary, too ugly, or too rough... people won't find it interesting. It's very hard to find the balance in this area... but still fit for kids to watch because kids are really smart these days. In truth, I've drawn a lot of content that's just more fitting for adults.
Q: Were you ever worried about the possibility that the anime might be more popular then the original work?
Gosho: I never worried about that before, I don't mind the anime originals that the anime staff came up with.
Q: What do you think of the anime original?
Gosho: Conan in the Manga says only stuff that I know, stuff that I researched, and stuff that I heard and sources like that. Anime Original is different, I've got no idea of the plotline. Sometimes I'll let out a "Ho~o, you're so smart!" or "Wow, you even know things like that" remarks.
Q: Did you even think about drawing the anime and the manga at the same time?
Gosho: Of course, of course, especially when I'm drawing action scenes like Ran's karate because if you see it in anime, it is very interesting. Like Conan's kicking scenes. There wasn't any sort of continuous action in the manga.
Q: The reason Conan is so loved by fans over this long period of time?
Gosho: Yeah, to tell you the truth. I'm not really clear on it. I guess it's because everybody likes to see detective shows and drama shows. The man who was shrunk and can not confess his love, everyone seems able to embrace this.
Q: What does Conan mean to you?
Gosho: Painful days and happy days. I'm very happy when I'm drawing Conan, but at the same time... it is very tiresome *laugh*
Q: What is the most tired period within these ten years?
Gosho: Well, because there are so many lines... it took a long time to produce it. If anybody feels that the lines are too long, that's because I wrote it that long. *laugh* This is a really tiresome work. I have a few pages full of lines in tiny letters.
Q: Compared to your other work, is the production time the same?
Gosho: It's completely different. When I was drawing Yaiba, if I'm lucky, I can be done in 4 to 5 days. Conan needs at least 1 week or a bit more then 1 week. For a weekly published manga... I killed quite a bit of my brain cells.
Q: How many more years do you set as your goal?
Gosho: Because I've been drawing it for 10 years, I haven't thought of the future. Although I have already thought of the ending, because I can't lay the clues if I don't have the ending.
Q: The 10th movie that's going to premiere in April.. what's the difference between it and the 9th film?
Gosho: It's different, to say... there's going to be a lot more detectives this time. (Did you see that poster with all the detectives) Yeah, even though this guy came out before, this time, he's coming out at the same time. The other point worth mentioning is my other project "Magic Kaito". The showdown between Kaitou and his nemesis Hakuba. Heiji, Conan and Hakuba. The joint appearance of the 3 high school detectives at the same time.
Q: The story of the movie?
Gosho: Within limited time, can the case be solved? Can the criminal be captured? The criminal will have a lot of hostages... It's not good if I say anymore *laugh*
Q: Finally, do you have anything to say to the audience?
Gosho: This time it's the 10th movie, so all the detectives who've shown up within these ten years should appear. So even though I can't say fancy, it's the 10 year special. Please look forward to it!
