Within the ever-expanding catalog of anime, without a doubt one of the most successful is Detective Conan, a series based on the manga by Gōshō Aoyama that, although it may not seem like it, has a great legion of followers in our country.
It is because of that Since 2018, Alfa Pictures has been releasing the most recent films of the little detective in Spanish cinemas a few months apart from Japan (or in a simultaneous release as happened with the previous film Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet).
Continuing with what is already an annual tradition, the distributor will launch from July 8, 2022 Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween, the 25th film of the saga that has triumphed in Japan with almost 14 million euros raised in its opening weekenda success that has led to confirm the realization of at least another five more Detective Conan films.
But before we get to our Detective Conan: Halloween Bride review It is time to carry out our usual review of the main events of the series, since the most recent events of the manga have not yet landed in these parts (although Planeta Cómic has a very good rhythm of the publication of the work, everything is said).
If you often watch series when traveling or in various parts of the house, these tablets can be good companions for entertainment consumption.
It is true that on this occasion there is not much new to tell, since The film focuses on Rei Furuya, a member of the secret police infiltrated in the Organization of the Men in Black with the code name Bourbon. that already had its relevance in the movie Detective Conan: The Zero Case and that we will soon see in the spin-off series that is among the Netflix news for July.
Those who also have relevance in the film are Furuya’s former companions: Jinpei Matsuda (Detective Sato’s former love who died three years ago in the bombing case), Kenji Hagiwara (who died a year before Matsuda in the same case), Wataru Date (mentor of detective Takagi who died in a traffic accident) and Hiromitsu Morofushi.
The latter is having special notoriety in the manga, since it is revealed that Hiromitsu is the brother of the Nagato prefectural inspector Taka’aki Morofushi and, like Furuya, was infiltrated in the Organization of the Men in Black under the name in Scotch code.
While Furuya believed that Shuichi Akai, an FBI agent undercover in the Organization, killed Hiromitsu when his cover was blown to further gain the gang’s trust, in reality what he did was cover up his death and now the agent is in hiding. whereabouts unknown, giving certain details about it in the film (something that is already common in recent feature films).
Trailer for Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween, the 25th film of the popular manganime
Under this premise, the movie Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween kicks off with a long-awaited event for fans: the wedding of detectives Miwako Sato and Wataru Takagi. As Conan and the other guests watch the ceremony, an assailant suddenly breaks in and Takagi is injured trying to protect Sato.
Although Takagi survives the attack, Sato can’t help but remember Detective Matsuda, Sato’s old partner Sato had feelings for and who ended up dying three years ago in a serial bombing case (seen in the Detective Conan series). ). At the same time, the culprit in the case escapes from prison. Coincidence or is there something else behind it?
For his part, Tooru Amuro, whose real name is Rei Furuya, a member of the secret police infiltrated in the Organization of the Men in Black with the code name Bourbon, manages to corner the murderer of the bombs, but a mysterious person enters the scene and tells him plant a necklace-shaped bomb.
How could it be otherwise? Conan Edogawa will end up being involved in the case and will try to help Amuro (who is isolated in a special container to avoid greater evils in the event that the bomb explodes) and the police to hunt down the culprit.but a mysterious and disturbing shadow stalks them…
Although lately you have to be up to date with the manganime to be able to understand the movies well, the truth is that In general, Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween explains very well everything necessary to understand its plot..
Except for the details mentioned above (which are only to better understand the context and the chronology in which the work is currently), the film summarizes the key points of the serial bombing case that was seen in the manganime (something on the other hand understandable since that episode originally aired in Japan almost 20 years ago and many will have forgotten important details).
As usual, Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween repeats the same formula that we have seen in the rest of the feature films (And if something works well, why change it?).
Thus, we have a case that engages as soon as there is interest in the film, with a fairly fluid and enjoyable development that culminates in a sequence that is as spectacular as it is unlikely (because in each movie they exaggerate more and more the action sequences of Conan) with which we let ourselves go and makes its almost two hours of footage fly by.

But this is also a double-edged sword since, from repeating the formula so much, we know the way things will develop by heart sensing (more or less), not only how the final sequence may be, but also who is the real culprit in the case long before its final resolution.
So, Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween is a movie that the most staunch fans of manganime will especially enjoy or those who show some interest in the work and do not mind some spoiling of the main series.
tip, we have a funny post-credits scene and the usual mini-teaser announcing the next Detective Conan movie, which we anticipate that it will also be important to be up to date with the work. Is it 2023 already?
