The warship Aegis Destroyer is conducting public exercises in Maizuru Bay where, coincidentally, a suspicious foreign ship was recently spotted. Conan Edogawa, Ran Mouri, Kogorou Mouri, Sonoko Suzuki, and the Detective Boys all receive a ticket to attend this event. However, while the ongoing military operations are underway, one of the crew members comes across a lieutenant's severed left arm. Conan later discovers that a foreign spy may have infiltrated the warship to obtain classified information by any means necessary. If the information were to leak, Japan's line of defense would be exposed, leaving the country unprotected from hostile attack.

With the help of the police at sea while other friends and allies investigate on the mainland, Conan must now prevent this national crisis and identify the spy for the sake of Japan.

The best Conan movie so far! All the elements came perfectly together
I love how all the different groups like the beika police, kyoto police, marine force, shonen tantei, agasa and heiji all had their important parts in it. Everyone was working together with Conan as the central point.
The new boy they added was very cute too, I cried in the end.

And I thought it was SO COOL how Ran really fought evenly with the enemy. not just the usually 'ow no, Ran got caught again'. she was totally kicking ass!

And the way how she disappeared really seemed impossible to find her this time. Everyone's reaction read more

As expected from a Conan movie: exciting and a very nice treat for conan fans :)
The story was good, and I loved how they incorporated real-life details about the Japanese self-defense force and the Aegis system.

Lovely end song. Art is the usual, but I especially liked how accurately the design of the destroyer was depicted. The movie has a nice, smooth development and many thrilling moments. I thought the ending was slightly exaggerated, but I won't spoil anything. The very last scene was really touching :')

I surprisingly enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Overall, it was a lovely thing that many Conan read more

If you ask which movie is the best in Conan. Of course, my answer would be, without hesitation, Private Eye in the Distant Sea. Dear reader, if you want to know the reason for my choice. Is that I felt a beautiful and warm feeling while I watched it. I cried because I couldn't bear the thought of losing Ran. And I rejoiced from the bottom of my heart that she did not die
Well, this movie has a special story. It touched political aspects of our daily life and touched Japan's national security. And the risks to security, read more

Not many of the Detective Conan movies really feel like they're episodes of the same show, but that generally isn't a problem at all. It's a movie, so the stakes have to be higher. But what if one movie managed to combine the big stories of the movies with the general feel and charm of the show? Well my friends, you would have the 17th movie: Private Eye in the Distant Sea.

Story (8/10): Conan and friends are boarding an Aegis Destroyer for a day of fun on the high seas. But, as usual for this group, trouble follows in the form of a severed read more
