Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet Anime Film Lands in Australia on May 13

Conan's biggest outing will be screened with English and Chinese subtitles

Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet


Hot off the heels of the best opening weekend in the franchise's history at the Japanese box office, Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet will be heading down-under to Australia on May 13 for a limited time. This will be the first time in the franchise's 25-year history that a Detective Conan movie will be shown widely in theaters in Australia, as well as one of the first times an anime film has been released with English and Chinese subtitles from Madman.



After a year-long COVID delay, Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet opened in Japan on April 16 and made 2,218,130,800 yen (around US$20 million) in the first three days of showings. Crunchyroll streams the TV anime series as Case Closed. Madman describes The Scarlet Bullet as such:


The prestigious international sporting event, World Sports Games (WSG), held every four years, is going to be hosted in Tokyo. The media are also focusing their attention on the HyperLinear train that can reach 1,000 km/h and launch of its service on the opening day of the WSG.​


However multiple incidents occur in which top executives of WSG’s sponsor companies are kidnapped but then are immediately released. No one seems to know who might be behind these incidents, but similar occurrences were observed during the WSG inauguration in US 15 years ago.​


When Conan learns of Alan McKenzie, former chief of FBI and now the head of WSG committee, is to get on the first run of the bullet train, he and Shuichi Akai make their move. Meanwhile, Akai’s sister Masumi Sera and his mother Mary are also in pursuit of the same case and have boarded the train. To make matters even more curious, Akai’s younger brother and professional Shogi player Shukichi Haneda too happens to be visiting Nagoya, where the train is scheduled to begin its run…!​
