Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire

The film Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer which was released last year was the highest grossing film out of the entire Detective Conan series. In its opening weekend, The Fist of Blue Sapphire managed to top the revenue of Zero Enforcer, and we are expecting this to rise up to become the highest grossing film in the Japanese box office! The film is set in Singapore where Kaito Kid steals the blue sapphire! Kaito Kid is a popular character even in the original series and with Makoto Kyogoku added to the mix, we’ve got a recipe for mayhem! Adults and children are bound to love this Detective Conan movie!
