Following a string of six murders, the police have set up a meeting with Kogorou and officers from various prefectures in order to solve the case. Afterwards, Conan realizes that the Black Corporation - who fed him the Apotoxin-4869 that turned him into a child - had infiltrated the meeting; he decides to investigate the murders himself and get closer to those who drugged him. After a chance meeting with Vermouth, Conan discovers that one of the murder victims was an undercover agent for the syndicate, and that a memory card containing a database of all their covert envoys is now in the murderer’s possession. Now Conan must discover the identity of the killer and retrieve the data before the corporation, as well as try to find out which officer is actually the disguised agent codenamed ‘Irish’. But with someone secretly investigating him, is Conan’s true identity about to be revealed?
Detective Conan Movie 13: The Raven Chaser was an absolute joy to watch! Definitely a stand-out for the DC movies. With an anime original story about the Black Organization, I was worried that I wouldn't feel the stakes of the storyline. Despite knowing that there would be no main story consequences, I still held onto every moment! Even if you're new to the series, this movie could be pretty easy to get into. The main meat of the movie doesn't have anything to do with the BO. That being said, the movie does a great job establishing who they are. There are some really fun gags in this movie, but overall I would say that the movie leans more seriously than other DC content. The end of the movie is actually so insane. If you are a Detective Conan fan, you will absolutely love this movie but the ending especially shines. This part is for Detective Conan fans: Once again, these movies impress me with the character development that occurs. Ran is hardly in this movie, but at the very end, she has a super intense fight which was amazing. The character focus for this movie was the police force. I have to say: I think they brought in too many police officers from too many prefectures. I get why it was necessary but there were too many of them. Also, Sato just randomly is like "um yeah so grand conspiracy theory" and then just calls everything absolutely like it is. Then Takagi goes "you're tripping" and she just goes "haha you right"??? That majorly bothered me. Beyond that, I loved seeing the intensity of the BO, especially with Gin! The dream at the beginning made me audibly gasp (despite me calling that it wasn't real). It's not a stand-out for me in terms of cast developments, but it did give me that fan service I expect from DC movies.
