While the 19th Detective Conan film came out back in April 2015 with Sunflowers of Inferno in Japan, distribution hasn’t been the easiest thing for North American fans. Now, TMS Entertainment has brought out the film digital for purchase through a few locations for those that want to own it. The film can be purchased on Amazon in Japanese with English subtitles for $14.99 or rent for $3.99 or the English dub for the same. iTunes has it where both languages are available with rental or purchase for $4.99 or $14.99 respectively. Google Play has it for $3.99 and $12.99 in both languages and Microsoft has it in their store for $4.99 and $14.99, again with both languages.
Other properties available include the Case Closed: Zero the Enforcer, The Crimson Love Letter, Darkest Nightmare, and Episode “One” films.
The feature is an interesting one as it’s bringing in a character from original creator Gosho Aoyama’s series Magic Kaito together. With a new TV series airing at the time and a nod to the manga getting a bit of additional life, a feature film bringing the two works together certainly makes a lot of sense. The film is produced by TMS Entertainment, which is no surprise as they’ve been involved since the beginning of this property.
Plot concept: When Sonoko’s grandfather wins the final bid for Van Gogh’s Sunflowers that was long thought to be destroyed, he announces to open an exhibition to display a complete collection of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. But the excitement is brought even higher when suddenly they discover a calling card warning of an imminent heist left by the infamous thief known as Kid the Phantom Thief.
