[Anime Review] Detective Conan the Movie: The Fourteenth Target (1998)

Anime Title      : Detective Conan: The Fourteenth Target
Directed by     : Kanetsugu Kodama
Produced by    : Michihiko Suwa
Written by      : Kazunari Kochi
Distributed by : Toho
My Rating        : 5 of 5


Detective Conan the Movie: The Time-Bombed Skyscraper is a Japanese animated feature film based on the Detective Conan manga series about Shinichi Kudo, a high school detective who is accidentally transformed back into a kid and named himself Conan Edogawa. This is the second movie which begins with several attacks to Ran’s dad’s acquaintances whose names have numbers in them, which are related to numbers in playing cards. The policemen and detectives start to suspect Jyou Murakami, a card dealer and ex-murderer who is just released from prison. They start to guess the next victims, and it leads them to Kohei Sawaki, a sommelier, who is going to have a meeting with the owner of a new restaurant over, so they follow him and meet other invited guests who apparently also have numbers in their names. Shortly after, they realize they are trapped, and after several attacks, Conan finally finds out who the real culprit is and saves the day.
Another awesome movie! Boy, I really love Detective Conan now. They really are genius! The unpredictable storyline, engaging conflicts, mind-blowing ending, curiosity-growing plot… Ah-ma-zing! How can they come up with such brilliant idea? And Shinichi a.k.a. Conan is so stunning! It’s great that they give audiences time to know some characters, who I thought weren’t necessary to know, but in the end, they all mattered.  Looking forward to watch the rest!
