The movie is set on a state-of-the art Aegis vessel with the full cooperation of Japan's real-life Ministry of Defense and Maritime Self-Defense Force. The corpse of a Self-Defense Force member has been found—minus the left arm—and a spy has infiltrated the Aegis vessel. The heroine Ran is put in jeopardy, and Conan is forced to stand up against the dangerous Spy "X."

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

"Ojisan, thank you".. Not everyday we can hear Conan thanking Kogoru but in this movie we definitely did, and it was a great moment♥ Conan's eyes and smile were beautifully made.

Story 9/10:
It was pretty interesting how the scenes shifted between the vacation scenes and the mystery ones and that the focus wasn't just on a certain murder case. I was a bit skeptical about it being a third sea movie but it was pulled gracefully and the story kept drowning me till the end, especially the great collaboration between the cast. On the other hand, as per usual, Conan pulls a Rambo in some read more

I went into this movie expecting to hate it. I remember watching it way back with a friend of mine and recalled it being boring, weak and annoying. Watching it today, however, made me realize that despite my negative recollection, this movie is not that bad. I'd even go so far as to say that it's actually one of the better Detective Conan movies I've seen so far.

To start, I'll admit to a certain bias of mine: my Dad is part of the US Coast Guard. As such, seeing things like rescue helicopters and US military ships in a Detective Conan movie feels like read more
