Ikki Sawamura Gets in on 26th Detective Conan Anime Film Cast
The 26th Detective Conan anime film—Detective Conan: Kurogane no Submarine—is set to open in Japan on April 14, and ahead of that we have another new cast member to introduce. Ikki Sawamura (Tomoya Shinohara in live-action Gokusen) has been cast as director of Interpol’s Pacific Buoy facility, Yosuke Makino.
Here’s the character’s design:
This time’s location is set in the sea near the Hachijo-jima island, Tokyo. Engineers from around the world have gathered for the full-scale operation of “Pacific Buoy,” an offshore facility to connect security cameras owned by the worldwide police forces. A test of a certain “new technology” based on a face recognition system is underway there.
Meanwhile, Conan and the Detective Boys visit Hachijo-jima at Sonoko’s invitation and receive a phone call from Subaru Okiya (a graduate student in the Graduate School of Engineering at Tokyo Metropolitan University, who is an FBI agent Shuichi Akai and a black-robed organization’s Rye) informing them that a Europol employee was murdered in Germany by the Black Organization’s Jin.
Conan, who is disquieted, sneaks into the facility and finds that a female engineer has been kidnapped by the Black Organization…! Furthermore, a USB drive containing certain information in her possession ends up in the hands of the organization… A black shadow also creeps up on Ai Haibara (Detective Boys’ Ai Haibara / Shiho Miyano / the Black Organization’s Shelly)…
