Tokei Jikake no Matenrou Movie Poster

Meitantei Conan Tokei Jikake no Matenrou (名探偵コナン 時計じかけの摩天楼; Detective Conan The Time-Bombed Skyscraper) is the first movie released for the Meitantei Conan anime. It was released in Japan on April 19th, 1997 and English-dubbed on October 3rd, 2006. This is the only Meitantei Conan movie not to be one of the highest-grossing movies in their year of release.


Our young and innocent schoolboy Shinichi Kudo assumes the alias of Conan and is challenged tenaciously by a terrorist bomber who has posed a major threat to a large and heavily populated city. While tracking down this culprit, Conan must go through a series of complicated and thrilling ordeals, but being the diligent detective, he is able to narrow the focus of his investigation down to one person.
