As revealed back in September, the Detective Conan/Case Closed anime is keeping the 20th anniversary celebration rolling with a new TV special. “Detective Conan Episode One: The Great Detective Who Shrank” remakes the anime’s first episode as a two-hour TV event, and the official website updated with news of a December 9 broadcast premiere at 9:00pm Japan Time.
Yasuichiro Yamamoto directs the special and Hiroshi Kashiwabara co-writes the script. Manga creator Gosho Aoyama serves as supervisor for the production.
The episode will also explain why Shinichi and Ran decided to go on a date at Tropical Land, and will feature other main characters of the series like Sherry before becoming Ai Haibara, Kogoro Mouri before meeting Conan, and more.
