Detective Conan Special 2012

Satoh Takeru and Mizobata Junpei
The live-action Detective Conan actors are back for an hour and a half special Shinichi Kudō and the Case of the Kyoto Shinsengumi Murder.   Mizobata Junpei and Kutsuna Shiori are back as Kudo and Ran, teenage detectives.  Don't hang around them outside of school....more than likely some murder will occur.  There are two stories in the special.  One is a about a murder on an airplane.  The other is about a murder on a film set of a movie about the Shinsengumi.    The preposterous deductions and corny jokes are back and it's an enjoyable watch.  Satoh Takeru has a small role in this as well, coming back as a sort-of rival teen detective.  Too bad he didn't have much screen time.  He played Koyuki in the Beck live action movie.  He is about to star in the live action Ruroni Kenshin movie.  I am not too familiar with Ruroni Kenshin, but I do know it's a popular manga and anime.
