Detective Conan: Halloween’s Bride opened in Japanese theaters on April 15 with Susumu Mitsunaka directing the film at TMS Entertainment. The film opened in Australia and New Zealand from Crunchyroll on June 2, which describe the movie as such:

Shibuya, Tokyo is bustling with the Halloween season. A wedding takes place in Shibuya Hikarie, where Detective Miwako Sato of the Metropolitan Police Department is dressed in a wedding dress. As Conan and the other guests watch, an assailant suddenly bursts in and Detective Wataru Takagi, who was trying to protect Sato, is injured. Takagi survived and the situation was resolved, but in Sato’s eyes, the image of the grim reaper she had seen when Detective Matsuda, the man she was in love with, had been killed in a series of bombings in the bombshell three years ago, overlapped with Takagi’s.

At the same time, the perpetrator of the attacks escapes from prison. Is it really a coincidence? Rei Furuya (Toru Amuro), a member of the Public Security Police, tracks down the man who killed his classmate, Detective Matsuda, but a mysterious disguised person suddenly appears and puts an explosive collar on him.

Conan visits the underground shelter where Amuro is hiding to disarm the collared bomb, and hears of an incident three years ago when he and his now-deceased classmates from the police academy encountered an unnamed virtual suicide bomber. identified as “Plamya” in Shibuya. As Conan and his team investigate, an ominous shadow begins to hang over them.
