Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween Film Hits Screens April 15, 2022

Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween Film Hits Screens April 15, 2022Detective Conan fans were shocked and dismayed in April 2020, when the yearly Conan film was delayed by a year (thanks Covid).

That film finally came out in April 2021, and now things are back on track. It’s been announced that the latest and greatest Conan adventure will come out April 15.

It’ll be called Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween (Halloween no Hanayome) and, by the way, it’ll be the 25th movie in this long-running franchise. 25 years, and no one’s aged a day!

For those who can’t wait to get their Conan fix until then, there’s also two spinoffs headed to the Big N.

Here’s how GSC Movies describes Conan #24, The Scarlet Bullet:

The story is set in Tokyo. The world’s largest sports festival “WSG: World Sports Games,” which only takes place once every four years, is scheduled to be held soon. And it is also announced that the world’s first “vacuum superconducting linear” train will start running from Nagoya to Tokyo in conjunction with its opening ceremony. Then, the event’s prominent sponsors are kidnapped at a party venue. Shuichi Akai is monitoring the incident and FBI is waiting for an instruction from him. Meanwhile, Conan finds a connection between the kidnap and the abominable WSG successive abduction happened in Boston 15 years ago, which was also investigated by FBI. Is this just a coincident? What will happen in Tokyo where people are gathering from all over the world?
