Detective Conan: The Crimson Love Letter is the 21st anime movie adaptation based on the highly-popular Detective Conan manga series by Gosho Aoyama, which has been publishing since January 1994 and currently has 93 volumes.
Anime News Network reported that the movie would be a love story set in Osaka, which primarily features the couple Heiji Hattori and Kazuha Toyama. Momiji Ooka, who first appeared in Volume 91 of the manga, referred to Hattori as her future husband and will be Toyama’s romantic rival.
The anime movie was directed by Kobun Shizuno, who is one of the directors of the anime series, while Takeharu Sakurai, who also worked in recent Detective Conan movie adaptations, wrote the scripts for the new movie.
The Japanese voice cast was lead by Minami Takayama as “Conan Edogawa”, Ryo Horikawa as “Heiji Hattori” and Yuko Miyamura as “Kazuha Toyama”. Satsuki Yukino, who voiced “Kagome Higurashi” in the popular InuYasha series, portrayed “Momiji Ooka” in the movie.
Detective Conan: The Crimson Love Letter has sold 987,568 tickets during its opening weekend on April 15, which earned JP¥1,286,928,000 (PHP581.4 million) setting a new opening record for the popular franchise.
