New Manga File to be Published on May 13

Issue #22/#23 of Shounen Sunday announced that a new Detective Conan manga file will be published on May 13, with the magazine’s 24th issue.

This will be the first new file to be published since the hiatus started in March due to Gosho’s hospitalization. Issue #22/23 teases that the story of the new file (#921) will focus on Ran and Shinichi, and will tell how they first met.

It is not yet known whether Detective Conan’s printing will return to its regular schedule after File #921, or its publishing will remain irregular.

As previously reported, Gosho Aoyama announced in March that he underwent a surgery, and while the operation was a success, he still had to stay in the hospital until the summer. For the past month, Shounen Sunday reprinted old files of Detective Conan: #156-159 (the first case to feature Kaito Kid in Detective Conan).

Movie 20 Teaser Content Revealed

Gin Kir

With the nineteenth Detective Conan movie Sunflowers of Inferno being released in Japan yesterday, we have learned a bit more about what can be expected for the upcoming 20th movie of the series to be released in April of 2016.

Following revelations from Gosho Aoyama in a series of postcards about a month ago, we learned that both Gin and Amuro would be appearing in the next film and that it would then logically be about the Black Organization. The teaser has brought more speculation about the potential content of the movie as it presents a glass of alcohol in a dark and gloomy bar with Gin’s voice being heard in the background, saying: ”Bourbon, Kir… Don’t tell me…?”.

More information will naturally be revealed about the movie by the end of the year.

More on Gosho’s Condition and the Immediate Future of the Manga

In addition to Gosho’s personal message, Shogakukan reports that Gosho already went in and out of hospital repeatedly last year, but decline to specify his illness for privacy reasons.

After File 920, which will be published in this week’s issue (SS #16), there will be no new file in issue #17. It is still unclear whether there will be a new file the following week (#18). Starting from issue #19, Shounen Sunday will run reprints of old Detective Conan files. When and how often new files will be published during Gosho’s hospital stay is still unclear.
