Manga Mavericks @ Movies continues our coverage of TMS’s newly dubbed Detective Conan movies by discussing the 19th film in the franchise, Sunflowers of Inferno! It’s another showdown between Conan and his magician rival Phantom Thief Kid, but this time the infamous jewel thief is after… a painting? It’s up to Conan (and the viewers) to see through all the red herrings and figure out Kid’s artful scheme! In doing so, we must deduce the most important question of all: Is this film a genuine work of art, or another trash-fire like The Darkest Nightmare? There is always only one truth, and we’re here to tell it like it is!
