13th film in manga-based anime franchise to open in Japan on April 18
The official website for the Detective Conan anime franchise's films has posted a teaser trailer for the 13th film, Meitantei Conan: Shikkoku no Chaser (Detective Conan: The Raven Chaser), on Saturday. Like the previous films and the ongoing television series, this film adapts Gosho Aoyama's popular shōnen manga about a brilliant detective trapped in a child's body. Detective Shinichi Kudo will once again face the elusive Kuro-zukume (Men in Black) for their "fated showdown." The film will open on April 18, 2009.
Viz Media is releasing the original manga in North America under the name Case Closed, and FUNimation Entertainment shipped DVDs for the television anime adaptation.
