The mastermind of the bombing event from three years ago has also escaped from prison. Is this just an accident? The Public Security Bureau’s Rei Furuya and Toru Amuro pursued the murderer of Detective Matsuda’s partner. But then someone else in a strange costume showed up and put a necklace explosive on him.

Conan enters Amuro’s underground hiding place to remove the necklace bomb securely. Conan hears from Amuro about the event from three years ago, when he and his colleagues, Police Academy students, encountered Plamya, an anonymous costume bomber, in Shibuya. At some point, a sinister shadow is cast over Conan and those conducting the probe, and the story continues.
