Case Closed: The Time Bombed Skyscraper, known as Detective Conan: The Time-Bombed Skyscraper (名探偵コナン 時計じかけの摩天楼, Meitantei Konan: Tokei Jikake no Matenrō) in nhật bản, is a 1997 Japanese animated feature film based on Gosho Aoyama's Case Closed manga series and featuring detective Jimmy Kudo. The film takes place between episodes 54 and 55. Funimation released the film in North America.


Mortimer Cornhouser, a wealthy heart surgeon, is murdered in his own home page, bludgeoned with a miniature statue that was left behind. Also at the scene is an unnatural bloodstain on the floor near the body toàn thân. He left a dying message using his blood đồ sộ type the keys on his computer’s keyboard: JUN. The suspects are Mortimer’s wife, Mina, his son Magnum, and housekeeper Manami Goodsbe. When Richard wrongly accuses Mina on the grounds that “JUN” in nhật bản is “Minazuki” and Mina was born in June, Conan tranquilizes him.

Conan uses Richard’s voice đồ sộ explain that the killer snuck up on Mortimer and bludgeoned him. The victim turned around and was stuck again, causing his hand đồ sộ brush the keyboard đồ sộ the ground and accidentally switch it đồ sộ hiragana. Barely alive, Mortimer typed the message “JUN” but when the facts come in play, reads "Ma-Na-Mi” for Manami Goodsbe, revealing her as the killer. As evidence, blood is found on Manami’s sock; she removed her footwear đồ sộ reduce the chance of being caught when she snuck up on Mortimer, explaining the unnatural bloodstain found at the crime scene. Manami confesses, stating Mortimer was drunk when he performed surgery on her husband Kevin, who passed away as a result. She altered her identity and gave herself a Japanese name knowing Mortimer would hire her and today is Kevin’s death anniversary. Manami is arrested.

The next day while sorting mail at Dr. Agasa's house, Conan finds an invitation addressed đồ sộ Jimmy from Leo Joel, a famous architect. Jimmy calls Rachel using his voice-changing bowtie and asks her đồ sộ go in his place. Rachel agrees, on the condition that Jimmy goes đồ sộ see a movie with her on Saturday at the City Center Tower. She explains how Saturday is May 4th, Jimmy’s birthday, and she will surprise Jimmy with a red Polo shirt when they meet. At the tea các buổi tiệc nhỏ, Professor Leo Joel introduce himself and proposes a small riddle for Richard đồ sộ solve; it ends up being solved by Conan instead. Joel makes a subtle comment about architecture and the people involved in the field who are only chasing a paycheck.

That morning, Conan receives a Gọi from a strange man asking for Jimmy, who has recently stolen C-4 explosives and challenges him đồ sộ a game of cat-and-mouse. Conan accepts the challenge, and the mystery caller gives him clues leading đồ sộ bombs hidden all over Tokyo.

Conan finds, intercepts, and destroys all of the bombs, injuring himself in the line of fire while transporting one out of harm’s way. He notes that the location of the bombs were or near structures that professor Joel designed. On one occasion, members of the Junior Detective League received a toy plane which is actually rigged with explosives from the bomber. Amy remembers the man having a sweet scent emitting from him, wore a long jacket, had a beard and wore sunglasses but is likely a disguise.

Some of Professor Joel’s projects are burned đồ sộ the ground, including the Kurokawa, Mizushima, Yasuda, and Akutsu households. Professor Joel is interviewed as a precaution. Inspector Meguire recalls a case where Jimmy Kudo was called đồ sộ assist and deduced that a thành phố councilman fatally struck an office worker while under the influence; his son attempted đồ sộ take the blame instead. The councilman was a supporter for one of Professor Joel’s projects. With the counsilman arrested, tư vấn stopped, but Joel holds no grudges. While transporting a bomb đồ sộ a safe location, Conan notices the timer has stopped. He backtracks his steps pointing out the park nearby which has English style gas lamps nearby.

After stopping another round of bombs on the city’s railroad loop line, Conan visits Professor Joel once again đồ sộ investigate, viewing a perfectly symmetrical model project. He notes the similarities between the gas lights near the park and the one in the model. Seeing the connection between the arson and bombings, Conan understands the truth of the matter.

Conan calls the authorities using Jimmy’s voice and lures them đồ sộ Leo’s gallery where he promptly deduces that professor Leo Joel đồ sộ be both the serial bomber and recent arsonist. Having inherited his knowledge from his father, Lionel, Leo exceeded expectations in his field. After gaining fame and fortune from the Loop Line Bridge, Leo quietly snapped with a desire đồ sộ destroy some of his award-winning projects. This is evidenced by his own sentiments how today’s generation of architects are only in the field for a paycheck and lack beauty in their work.

The Kurokawa, Mizushima, Yasuda, and Akutsu buildings, and the Loop Line Bridge were all built in classic English styles, but were not symmetrical. After stealing C-4 from the plant, Leo sat out and planned đồ sộ destroy and replace them with symmetrical structures (all of the bomb targets were either at or near buildings he designed). His insanity came after being forced đồ sộ make drawbacks, either due đồ sộ customers' preferences, thành phố standards, or neighborhood guidelines. Additionally, Leo challenged Jimmy Kudo for his own revenge, after Jimmy convicted the counselman for his hit-and-run, who supported his Lilly Valley West project, subsequently halting his building plan. Leo stopped the mèo carrier bomb as it was near the gas lamps that he designed after the ones from his hometown of London.

To seal Leo for his wrongdoings, Conan reveals the bomber’s disguise near his model project, tricking Leo into revealing the real disguise is hidden in his study. He is also responsible for giving the Junior Detective League the toy plane bomb earlier, evidenced by the sweet scent Amy noticed coming from Leo’s smoke pipe. Leo attempts đồ sộ detonate the bombs inside his house, but is stopped when Conan reveals that he removed the batteries earlier. Leo is arrested but taunts the group that he has "one more" place that he wants đồ sộ destroy, the City Center Tower, which happens đồ sộ be the venue for Jimmy and Rachel's date. Leo angrily cites that the tower is his least greatest achievement due đồ sộ the local economy bursting during its construction, selfish taxpayers and drawbacks made because of them, then counts down the time as Richard, Meguire, and Santos watch in horror. Conan steals the bomb's blueprints from Leo's coat pocket and sets out on his own đồ sộ disarm the final bomb.

The bombs cut off the exits and entrances, killing and injuring a number of innocent people, trapping Rachel and more inside. Conan makes his way through the collapsing building, but a warped door blocks him off from Rachel. Using his tie and cell phone, he calls Rachel and asks her đồ sộ look for the bomb which is hidden in a large shopping bag. To disarm the bomb, Jimmy tells Rachel which wires đồ sộ cut. Joel has made two extra wires at the last minute, one red, one xanh rì, one of which is booby-trapped and coldly taunts Richard over Rachel's dire situation. He also gave Jimmy 3 extra minutes.

Jimmy tells Rachel đồ sộ cut whichever one, having gave up hope and riding on faith. As the rescue team arrives and carries him away, Jimmy realizes that Joel knew that Rachel's favorite color was red and booby-trapped the red one and that the 3 extra minutes were meant for Jimmy đồ sộ enjoy his birthday. In the last few minutes, Rachel makes a desperate decision and cuts the xanh rì wire because the red wire represents the red string of fate between Jimmy and herself. A celebration ensures and the injured are tended đồ sộ. Joel, shocked and disgusted that his bomb was successfully disarmed, is finally defeated and arrested for his various crimes.
