Film 22: Zero no Shikkounin/Zero the Enforcer

      Film 22: Zero no Shikkounin/Zero the Enforcer


      Das Gosho-Poster zu Film 22 ist gerade aufgetaucht. Der Titel ist "ゼロの執行人/Zero no Shikkounin" was übersetzt in etwa "Zero's Enforcer" (bzw. Zeros Vollstrecker im Deutschen dann).

      Joa, aus irgendeinem Grund wird auch Kuroda in diesem Film mit reingezogen. Ansonsten aber wie immer ein toll gezeichnetes Gosho-Poster.
      Wow, sehr coole Zeichnung von Gosho als Poster für Film 22 :thumbup: Ich glaube, das müsste das erste Mal in einer Gosho-Zeichnung sein, dass man Amuro in seiner Geheimpolizei-Uniform sieht, das sah man so bislang meine ich nur in Film 20 mit Curacao und den ganzen anderen NOC-NPCs. Was die Detective Boys da genau zu suchen haben und warum die so geschockt in die Luft starren, wundert mich auch etwas. Und Ran muss mal wieder heulen :D Sieht aber alles auf jeden Fall sehr gut aus ^^
      Vom Filmtitel mit Zeros Enforcer/Vollstrecker würde ich ziemlich stark darauf tippen, dass es in dem Film wieder einen BO-Bezug geben wird ^^ Könnte mir gut vorstellen, dass Bourbon durch welche Umstände auch immer in dem Film befürchten muss, als NOC in der BO aufzufliegen und dass jemand aus der BO sein Todesurteil "vollstrecken" könnte. Sein Spitzname ist ja Zero wegen Rei (=Null) Furuya. Aber weil die Filme ja (mehr oder weniger) Non-Kanon sind, wird das natürlich nicht geschehen und am Ende wird wieder der Status Quo hergestellt.
      Wer dieser "Vollstrecker" sein könnte, wäre natürlich die Frage. Potentiell würde sich für sowas schon Gin anbieten, aber durch Kurodas Präsenz auf dem Poster könnte es auch auf Rum hinauslaufen. Das muss ja nicht gleichbedeutend sein mit Kuroda=Rum, könnte genauso gut einfach ein Red Herring sein, warum der so prominent auf dem Poster ist ^^ Aber da Kuroda ja trotzdem nicht einfach so auf dem Poster zu sehen ist, wird er eine Rolle in dem Film spielen und mMn gibt es 2 Möglichkeiten, auch den weiteren Verlauf im Manga betreffend: Entweder ist Kuroda wirklich Rum, der Bourbon im Film evtl. auf die Schliche gekommen zu sein scheint. Oder es besteht eine Verbindung zu Bourbon/Amuro/Rei Furuya, was bedeuten würde, er wäre der Chef von der Geheimpolizei (vergleichbar mit James Black beim FBI) und wäre im Film dann vermutlich derjenige, der den Verdacht von Bourbon abwenden kann, damit der weiter undercover in der BO ermitteln kann. Ich erwarte da vom Film keine Auflösung, ob Kuroda nun Rum, Teil der Geheimpolizei oder was auch immer ist, die werden das wahrscheinlich im Dunkeln lassen. Aber ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass die Rum-Auflösung bald auch im Manga eine Rolle spielen könnte, die Filme und der Manga korrelieren da thematisch ja gerne mehr oder weniger ^^

      Also das Poster sieht wirklich Spitze aus ( auch wenn ich hoffe, dass die DB im Film nicht so eine große Rolle spielen werden wie auf dem Poster).
      Da es in dem Film ja um Zero geht tippe ich auch sehr stark auf eine BO-Konfrontation.

      Das Bourbon als NOC auffliegen könnte , als Thema des Films, bezweifle ich aber wohl eher, da dies ja eigentlich schon im 20. Film passiert ist. Somit würde es sich dann ja nur wiederholen. Andererseits kann man es ja auch noch komplett anders in Szene stellen und den Film so trodzdem spannend machen, auch wenn es mehr oder wenieger dasselbe Thema ist. Im 20. Film geht es ja auch mehr um Curaçao als um die anderen Agenten und so hätte das durchaus noch Potenzial. Aber ich glaube irgendwie es wird eher in die Richtunge gehen etwas mit seiner Vergangenheit in der Sicherheitspolizei zu tun zu haben.

      Ja, gerade deshalb bin ich auch so überrascht, dass die DB auf dem Poster so groß abgebildet sind ^^ Also insbesondere, weil die BO womöglich auch eine Rolle spielen könnte und der Fokus des Films auf Bourbon liegen soll, würde ich eine zu starke Präsenz der DB etwas merkwürdig finden, denn sie würden da nicht so richtig reinpassen. Aber warten wir mal ab, wie groß ihr Auftritt im Film dann sein wird.

      Das stimmt natürlich, das würde sich inhaltlich mit Film 20 etwas decken ^^ Allerdings sind das auch nur Mutmaßungen und Spekulationen meinerseits basierend auf dem Titel "Zeros Vollstrecker" und dem Poster, auf dem Kuroda ebenfalls abgebildet ist.
      Ich könnte mir dennoch vorstellen, dass man dieses Thema theoretisch wieder verwenden könnte, denn wie du sagst könnte man so ein Szenario dann anders inszenieren. Es soll ja in Film 22 v.a. um Bourbon selbst gehen und weniger um andere NOCs, wie das in Film 20 mit Curacao usw. der Fall war. Ich gehe ebenso davon aus, dass seine Vergangenheit beleuchtet wird, wobei ich hoffe, dass der Film das nicht alleine für sich beansprucht. Normalerweise ist das mMn schon ein Story-Element, das im Manga verarbeitet werden sollte, er scheint ja eine Verbindung zu Elena Miyano zu haben und seine Vergangenheit in der Sicherheitspolizei (dazu könnte auch seine Verbindung zu Wataru Date gehören) wäre im Manga wie ich finde auch besser untergebracht. Es wäre daher gut, wenn Manga und Film im April dann ineinander übergehen und das im Manga ebenso thematisiert wird bzw. dass der Film das nur anschneidet und der Manga dann den Großteil bringt (so wie bei Film 18, als Okiya=Akai doch schon geteasert wurde und dann kam der Scarlet-Fall, wobei diese Identität zuvor bereits offensichtlich wurde). Hauptsache der Film erledigt nicht die komplette Aufgabe des Mangas, wäre ziemlich schade ^^

      Wenn der Film in ein paar Jahren in Deutschland rauskommt, kann man nur hoffen, dass Bourbon dann eine neue Synchronstimme bekommen hat ^^ Seine Film 20-Stimme war jedenfalls eine ziemliche Fehlbesetzung und passte überhaupt nicht zu ihm. Wird Zeit, dass der 29(!!!)-jährige NOC in der BO (zumindest bei seiner deutschen Stimme) in den Stimmbruch kommt und seine Teenager-Stimme verliert :D Besser am japanichen Anime orientieren, die Stimme ist vom Klang her super ^^
      Außerdem können wir uns bei Deutschland-Release noch auf ein stärkeres Krächzen bei Conan "freuen" - yey! :D Es sei denn, Kaze hat mit Tobias Müller und uns Hörern und Filmzuschauern Erbarmen ^^


      EDIT: Hier auch nochmal der Teaser zu Film 22, der am Ende vom Film 21 zu sehen war:


      Könnte ganz interessant werden, aber gut, diesen Eindruck sollten Teaser ja ohnehin vermitteln ^^ Da ich Bourbon als Charakter sehr mag, könnte ich mir diesen Film ja wenigstens mal geben :D Warten wir mal ab, was weitere Trailer so durchblicken lassen, worum es im Film genau geht, bis auf "Irgendwas mit Sicherheitspolizei und wahrscheinlich BO und seine Vergangenheit" wissen wir ja noch gar nichts.

      Was hat eigentlich das Kaito-Kid-Symbol da zu suchen? Spielt das denn eine Rolle? Oder macht Gosho das immer so? :D
      Everything comes apart at some point. We all will. It's the law. It's what we're designed to do. We have to face it and accept it, and try to hold it together, for as long as we can.
      Meines Wissens nach macht Gosho das immer (oder zumindest sehr oft) so und zeichnet dieses Kaito-Kid-Symbol bei Zeichnungen wie eben diesem Film-Poster dazu, quasi als Unterschrift neben seiner richtigen Unterschrift, so wie Künstler das häufig tun (er ist ja Mangaka und Zeichner) ^^ Also das hat sonst keine Bedeutung für den Film und deutet keinen Auftritt von Kid in Film 22 an. Könnte theoretisch zwar sein, dass Kaito Kid auftritt, aber es besteht da keine Verbindung, weil es nur seine Unterschrift ist, zumal ich auch nicht glaube, dass er im Film vorkommen wird, dafür passt er nicht wirklich zum Thema des Films ^^

      Macht er seit 2015 bei seiner Unterschrift meist so, dieses Kid-Logo ist ein Stempel ^^ Hat vermutlich im Zuge von Film 19 diesen Stempel bekommen und das Kid-Symbol ist auch sein Autoren-Avatar im Sunday-Inhaltsverzeichnis, deswegen fand er es wohl passend, dass in seine Unterschrift auf solchen Kunstsachen zu integrieren.

      Es dürfte sogar noch älter sein, da es auch auf einigen älteren Zeichnungen/Autogrammen zu Magic Kaito auftaucht, ebenso wie in den Playback Episodes aus den Treasured Editions des Mangas (2011). Allerdings ist es schwer zu sagen, ob das da noch handgezeichnet war oder nicht. ^^ Das scheint damit irgendwie für DC (oder allgemein zu seinen Werken) übernommen worden zu sein. Einen extrem ähnlichen Avatar (ohne Zylinder, dafür mit Victory-Handgeste XD) hatte er sogar schon in seinen Kommentaren im Inhaltsverzeichnis der jeweiligen Sunday während der Zeit, als Yaiba dort lief. Vielleicht hat damit sogar sein Avatar den Stil von Kids Signatur beeinflusst, statt umgekehrt...

      Ja, sicherlich. Jedenfalls bezog ich mich auch darauf, dass dieses Gosho-Kid Logo mit der roten Farbe von Gosho in einer Postkarte 2016 speziell als Stempel erklärt wurde ^^ (inklusive "Aoyama Kid" Beschriftung :D )

      Übrigens, wenn du da mal genau hinschaust, ist es gar nicht wirklich das Kid-Logo, denn dieses zeigt nur ein verspiegeltes Auge (Kids Monokel), während das auf dem Poster zwei verspiegelte Augen (Goshos Brille) zeigt ^^ ;)

      An sich sieht das ja nicht uninteressant aus. Kogoro wird verhaftet und Eri kommt vor? Ein bisschen Courtroom-Drama in einem Conan-Film wäre auf jeden Fall eine willkommene Abwechslung. Auch einen Konflikt zwischen Conan und Amuros Behörde halte ich für prinzipiell interessantes Material. Die Action scheint allerdings mal wieder vollkommen überbetont und das Skateboard ist immer ein ungebetener Gast. Außerdem sind ja leider die DB prominent auf dem Plakat vertreten und kriegen deswegen wahrscheinlich eine größere Rolle, was in einem ernsten Agententhriller eigentlich keine gute Idee sein kann. Dass wir es scheinbar mit einem Bombenleger zu tun haben, stimmt mich auch etwas skeptisch, wobei so etwas in der Vergangenheit ja durchaus funktioniert hat.
      Das Theatrical Poster ist nun auch verfügbar; wie schon bei Film 21 stinkt es gegen das Gosho-Poster mMn ziemlich ab, aber nun gut.

      __________
      Update:
      Mit der vollständigen Version des Posters inklusive allen Logos etc. ist jetzt auch der internationale, englische Titel von Film 22 bekannt: Zero the Enforcer.

      Tja, das ist ziemlich das Gegenteil, wie es Leute bisher übersetzt haben... ups? :whistling:
      __________________
      Update 2:
      90 Sekunden Trailer ist nun verfügbar:

      Naja, naja... der Film 21 und selbst der Film 20 Trailer hatten mich mehr. War okay, kann man so machen, aber naja, nichts was der 30 Sekunden nicht auch schon bei mir ausgelöst hätte. Eri war in der kleinen Szene aber ziemlich niedlich, und zwar auf ihre eher erwachsene, passende Weise niedlich. Aber das rettet nicht den Trailer und auch später nicht den :P

      #Sidenote: Ein Satellit soll auf Japan stürzen. *facepalm*


      WARUM kann es nicht mal EINEN einzigen Film ohne Action, Bomben und DB geben. Von mir aus gerne ein Thriller oder ein Duell der Gehirne. Wenig Charaktere, die aber perfekt in Szene gesetzt und von ihrer Schokoseite gezeigt. Wird wohl für immer ein Wunschtraum bleiben...

      WATCH IN MOTION PICTURES :love:
      Naja, du kannst dir aber auch nicht 21 Filme lang eine Zielgruppe ranzüchten, die eben jedes Jahr ins Kino rennt und Conan kucken will, die dann auch erwartet, dass ein Film den üblichen Mix an Action, Humor und Spannung enthält. Und die DB sind natürlich auch notwendig für die DB-Fans in Japan und für die jüngere Zielgruppe.

      Mit so einem puren Thriller kannst du auch stark auf die Schnauze fallen. Selbst wenn auch ein Großteil der Kinogänger eher ruhige Fälle aus dem Anime gewöhnt sind, gibt es sicherlich einen nicht geringen Anteil, die dann mit dem Anspruch ins Kino gehen: "Das ist hier die große Leinwand, ich bezahle gutes Geld für das Kinoticket, jetzt muss es aber auch ordentlich knallen!" Selbst bei einem tendenziell eher ruhigem Franchise wie Conan.
      Ich finde es ja echt schade, wie krass Movie-Ran mittlerweile von ihrem eigentlichen Charakter im Manga abweicht. Sieht so aus, als würde sich Ran bloß auf Shinichi verlassen, der die Unschuld ihres Vaters beweisen soll. Ich denke, in so einer Situation hätte sie im Manga anders reagiert//gehandelt. Und deswegen allein habe ich null Erwartungen. Sehr schade.
      Nochmal Infos zum Teaser für Film 23 am Ende von Film 22 aus der Spoiler Box:

      Spoiler anzeigen
      12 Apr 18, 13:49
      Mak: M23 will be Kid on a ship, according to social media posts at least
      Mak: (refering to the teaser at the end of movie 22)

      Dass Film 23 wieder ein Kid-Film werden würde, wurde ja an einigen Punkten bereits angedeutet. Das mit dem Schiff als Setting hingegen ist neu. (Und stößt in der Spoilerbox offenbar nicht gerade auf sehr viel Gegenliebe. XD)


      EDIT: Hier außerdem noch die Übersetzungen von Spimer, basierend auf den Scans des Guidebooks zu Film 22, die jimmy_kud0_tv2 gemacht hatte:

      Characters


      Sayoko Iwai -> Tokyo Regional Prosecutor, Public Safety Bureau
      VA: Tomigana Miina

      Line: "This is a decision by the Public Safety Department, do you understand?"

      Supervisor subservient to the Public Safety Police.

      Supervisor Prosecutor part of the Tokyo Regional Public Prosecutor Office, Public Safety Department. Her subordinate, Kusakabe, in charge of Kogoro's case, suggests her to carry out additional investigation of the case, but Supervisor Iwai dismisses his suggestion. It'd seem she's very subservient to the National Police Agency's Public Safety Police.

      Kyouko Tachibana -> Lawyer
      VA: Ueno Aya

      Line: "Please allow me, Kyouko Tachibana, to defend "the sleeping Kogoro"!"

      A "cell-lawyer" lawyer who always loses

      A "cell-lawyer" is a lawyer that doesn't belong to a lawyer agency and take jobs over their cellphones, they're freelance lawyers. She's been in charge of many Public Safety cases in the past but cases with prosecution indictment only have a 0.1% chances of being won so she's lost in all the trials she's been at. She requests to defend Kogoro.

      Fumikazu Haba -> Former Law Student
      VA: Hakata Daikichi

      Line:"I want you to explain why I wasn't appointed!"

      He was a law student, but...

      Interview mit Gosho


      Page 1

      Q: "How did you decide that Amuro Tooru would be the main character in "Zero the Enforcer", this year's installment?"
      A: "It all started from a suggestion by Sakurai-san, the scriptwriter, it wasn't my idea.

      He said he wanted to do a tale about cyber-terrorism and he asked me "if it's cyber-terrorism, then the PSB will get involved, can I make Amuro appear?". It'd only been 1 film since "The Darkest Nightmare" so I did think it was a bit too early to do so but I also though that it would work. Amuro-kun's popular, after all (laughs)."

      Q: "What are the highlights of this move?"
      A: "The final action scene, and the talk between Conan and Amuro in the climax!"

      Q: "In which parts were you involved?"
      A: "In the story and a bit of storyboard fixes. I also helped a bit with the keyframes. The first version of the story it was very hard and led to heavy happenings. It turned into a "Amuro's become evil?" feeling, so we made it a bit softer. The first heavy story was interesting, too. Had a hard mystery feeling to it. The culprit got caught but "the truth darkness hasn't been dispelled" feeling. But I thought that wasn't something we should in Conan.

      So we made some things a bit light-hearted. Also, until we settled on using cyber-terrorism as theme we also though of tricks involving food poisoning but they were discarded very early. We felt that the motive was too small (laughs)

      I also voiced my opinion on the climax and other scenes and had them add scenes I wanted to see. Also, the scene between Amuro and Kuroda, for example, has elements from the anime so I look forward to how it ends up looking."

      Q: "What were your demands to the new director, Director Tachikawa?"
      A: "We were very detailed when we met to talk about the action scenes planning, but we didn't go so over the details when we were in the storyboard stage. There wasn't much storyboard fixing this time around. But sometimes I sent him a photo over LINE telling him "we should fix this one". (continues on Page 2)



      Page 2:

      A: "We didn't have too many long phone calls either. Talking over LINE was sufficient (laughs).

      Q: "What kind of conversation you had with Furuya Tooru-san, Amuro Tooru's VA?"
      A: "We didn't talk about the movie but I did have a meal with him in the past. Said his daughter is a great fan of Kaitou Kid. Also he did play the role of Tuxedo Mask (Sailor Moon), didn't he? I guess that he probably thinks that I used his character as model to draw Kaitou Kid. But it's actually the inverse, Kaitou Kid came before Tuxedo Mask. "Magic Kaito" is a old, Showa Period manga.

      (See Note 1) When I told him that he was disappointed, I guess that he wanted to brag to his daughter "I'm the the model for Kaitou Kid", no? (laughs). Well, it's but my speculation so... I apologize if I'm mistaken (laughs)


      I also told him that Amuro Tooru's true name is Furuya Rei and he replied "Sensei! That's overdoing it!" to which I replied "No, see, the "Rei" is actually "Zero" due to some reasons" and he was like "Huh!?"."

      Q: "I want to ask about Kazami Yuuya, who's also appeared in the manga.

      A: "He's very popular. There were a lot of fan letters after "The Darkest Nightmare" asking me to "Please make Kazami appear!" so I went like "fine, fine". "Let's make him show up!". Wondering if that would do (laughs)

      I think that the anime staff decided on his name. He's a subordinate of Amuro so he was Camille. At first he had a long and crumpled hair but I didn't understand what they meant by Camille, so they said "he doesn't look like PSB", and that someone with a bad nature was better. And so his design was remade and ended up like that. I don't watch "Z Gundam" too often. The first [season] of Gundam is the best, in my opinion. Hence why I didn't make the connection. I'm really sorry (laughs)."

      Q: "I want to ask about Kazami's and Amuro's roles"
      A: "To make it clear that Amuro's the great one, Amuro is on the elite section of the NPA, and Kazami belongs to the Police HQ's PSB which is a lower rank. I think Sakurai-san was the one who suggested for Kazami to be older than Amuro.

      As for Amuro's career, he was in the same class as Matsuda and Date. Scotch also was in the same class. They all died but they were cool types.

      And Scotch was Amuro's childhood friend. Because, you see, he called him "Zero". And that was nickname of Amuro when he was a kid. I'll have to draw that, indeed."

      Note 1: "The author of "Sailor Moon" , Takeuchi Naoko-sensei, was told that Tuxedo Mask's model was Kaitou Kid and was glad about it (From the "Aoyama Gosho 30th Anniversary Book").

      (Continues to Page 3)



      Page 3:

      Q: "I wanted to ask about Conan's first spin-off, "Culprit Hanazawa-san"..."
      A: "At first, the person in charge showed me the name and asked me "this is the name, will it be OK?". So I replied "Oh, sure. Perfectly OK.". Thought it was fun. I had a meal with Kanba-sensei after that. I told him "feel free to do anything you want to do". Kanba-sensei's hometown is Shimane Prefecture, which is next to Tottori so he's also close to my hometown.

      The persons who appear are suspicious, Ran-chan's hairstyle, and her horn popping from the middle are fun. I thought it was good to give off a "imposter" feeling. It's pretty good, and fun."

      Q: "What about your health, and when will [the manga] resume?"
      A: "Thank you for your concern, I feel very good. I get a feeling of "get to work already!". I think there'll be good news soon enough.

      I want to write a long story about Detective Chiba and Naeko-chan as well after the manga resumes. With the feeling of "Bayside Shakedown", I'd say. Please look forward to it."

      Q: "Please give us a message for Conan fans as conclusion of the interview."
      A: "Both those who know Amuro and those who don't know him... Those who don't know him, they'll know what kind of man he is, and those who know him will get to know him a bit deeper. So please go see the movie.

      Also, Amuro will be appearing a lot in the manga in the future. Since he was told to "Investigate about Kudo Shinichi", it's inevitable for him to get involved. Look forward to it, too!"

      Sign: "Detective Conan Cinema Magazine 2018. Aoyama Gosho."

      Bottomost right note: "Sensei drew Conan & Amuro for the magazine. He quickly makes a sketch with pencils, and adds a magic pen without any hesitation. It'd seem he's drawing a lot of cuts of Amuro often.

      He jokingly said "If you make a blonde with squat eyes and dark-skinned there you have Amuro (laughs)"



      Interview mit Furuya Toru (Amuros Synchronsprecher)


      Profile:

      Amuro Tooru / Rei Furuya VA

      Originary from Kanazawa Prefecture. His representatives works are "Mobile Suit Gundam" as Amuro Ray, "Star of the Giants" as Hoshi Hyuuma, "Saint Seiya" as Pegasus Seiya, "Dragon Ball" as Yamcha, "Sailor Moon" as Tuxedo Mask amongst others.

      Page 1:

      Q: "Will Amuro Tooru, in the 22nd movie "Zero the Enforcer" become a main character?"
      A: "No way. It's 2 years after "The Darkest Nightmare" so I think it's too early to say that he's become a main character (laughs). Personally, I was very glad and surprised, I have both of those feelings.

      I didn't know anything about the contents, and at first it was that trailer with the countdown included in "The Crimson Love Letter" so I thought it'd be a movie with hard content."

      Q: "What's your impression ever since you read the script?"
      A: "It was a bit different from what I'd imagined. Amuro does his job as PSB officer to face organized terrorism against Japan and heads straight forward. And then Conan-kun would get involved. That's how I thought it'd be like.

      But as I did the trailers and the teasers, that was before I got the script so I eventually began to understand the contents. I firstly though "Huh? He's going to be enemies with Conan?". Despite that in the main story we finally got to know he was an ally of Conan, so I thought that them being enemies now would draw Conan fans away... I felt a bit of danger, actually (laughs).

      But I did think that that wouldn't be the end of things, and there women who feel attracted to bad guys so maybe it would be good for them to be enemies when seen from that perspective.

      There are people who like Bourbon, so I expected that the charm of a cool Furuya Rei would further increase in this movie as well. I didn't think that it'd show details about the state of things within the police, though.

      Q: "What points do you have to respectively act his 3 faces of Amuro Tooru, Furuya Rei and Bourbon?"
      A: "In the case of Amuro Tooru, working at the Poirot part-time, I take into account the image that he behaves like a kind guy and is an attractive young man. Conan knows his identity, but when there are other Detective Boys present, he acts as if he was but a strong and young detective. That's how I voice him like. I use a bit of a higher tone of voice, with a soft feeling.

      In the case of Furuya Rei, he's a worker and a pro so I voice him in a sharp and edgy manner. To give out a dark feeling I make a lower tone of voice. There also times in which he gives out orders to Kazami, so there are parts in which he turns stricter. I add changes in scenes like those.

      Speaking of voice tones, I use the lowest one when I voice him as Bourbon. Vermouth and he have a grip of each others' weaknesses so it's a bit special yet when he talks to Gin or similar scenes I use a very low tone.

      Also, when it comes to Akai Shuichi, he's got a feud with him involving what happened with Scotch so he clearly hates him. His emotions get the best of him. When he faced Akai, he behaves like a kid. So when Akai is around he unusually brings out his emotions in a straightforward way.

      When reading the movie's script, when he moves around as Furuya Rei, and when he talks to Conan... I thought that it would be better to use Amuro's voice for those scenes. When I had to act scenes as Furuya Rei, I wrote the "Kou" kanji from "kouan (Public Safety)" on my copy of the script and when it was Amuro Tooru I wrote "an". So they overlapped with "kouan" and was hard to understand even for me, so I wrote the katakana "A". I distributed them in the script as much as I could.

      Q: "What's the charm of Amuro Tooru, in your opinion?"

      (Continues to page 2)



      Page 2:

      A: "Hmmm... He has 3 faces so I guess he's 3 times more handsome than normal people (laughs).
      His 3 faces are the first of his charms. So even though I'm acting a single character, I can experience being 3 persons at the same time and acting 3 persons. That's a charm yet it has difficult parts to it so I feel like it's worth doing it.

      It was fun voicing the 3 of them but I really like Furuya Rei. He feels like a hero of justice. Apart from action, he's also good with his driving technique. He often has cool lines to him, and like in this occasion, I was able to voice him a lot in the movie, since he doesn't appear that often. So I'm very glad at it."

      Q:"Can you tell us anything that happened during the dubbing?"
      A:"Takayama Minami-san (Conan) and Yamakazi Wakana-san (Ran) encouraged me a lot and were glad at Amuro's popularity, and Yamazaki-san said, about the movie, that "Amuro-san, you're sure to get a lot of new fans!".Minami-san did ask "This is about that person and that other person?", when checking uncertain lines and scenes...

      In the interactions with Conan during the climax has a lot of action so ad-libbing becomes needed and it's hard to coordinate them but when we did the first test we matched things perfectly despite no previous meeting to coordinate things. Our sensibility as voice actors is similar, I guess. Weren't that the case, we wouldn't have been able to synchro the timing so perfectly. I was really surprised.

      The climax scenes lines were also good, and so the Suzuki Sonoko VA Matsui Naoko-san was very happy at it, and said "Your pierced through my heart!" (laughs)"

      I was a bit unsure how to voice Amuro's lines on the movie's climax, and unexpectedly enough, during the tests, I made a strong tone of voice that wasn't what I had on mind, and Naoko-san was very glad so I told my "Oh yeah, this is it" to convince myself it was good enough. I had the feeling to act along with Minami-san and that's the voice that came out during the dubbing.

      Q: "You've had a long career. Yet how do you feel about acting a popular character like Amuro Tooru?"
      A: "I'm really happy at it. I've been a VA for over 50 years, but, for me, it's the first time that a lot of fans had gotten crazy about a character I voiced, crazy over Amuro Tooru.

      Amuro Ray also has popularity, yeah, but he couldn't beat Char to it (laughs). I often voice the main protagonists of series and so the rival character often gets the attention drawn to him. Nowadays you can see the encouragement through SNS, I like how a lot of followers appear in Twitter, and I'm very surprised at his popularity.

      Between the Amuro fans, there are some who bought a real white FX-7 (see Note 1). He also makes incredible driving in this film, but whenever the co-stars crash they get severely told "you're wasting the tax money!" (laughs).

      Q: "Amuro Tooru appeared on Volume 75 of the manga, he appears in the latter half of the story, but were you surprised by the naming at the time of this debut?"
      A: "We were fans of "Detective Conan" to begin with. My daughter, especially. We often went to the theater to see the movie together.

      I knew that Ikeda Shuichi-san voiced Akai Shuichi, so I did feel that "the author, Aoyama-sensei, really likes Gundam". I secretly hoped that "maybe one day I'll be offered a role". And when "it finally came" I was "Huh? Amuro Tooru?" when I heard his name. "There's barely any difference (with my name)!".

      And later, when his real name of Furuya Rei was revealed, I went "Hey, sensei. Didn't you overdo it!?". I did really comment upon those. Around that time I also got a chance to have a lunch with Aoyama-sensei so we brought colored papers and we got each other's signatures, but then... "No, there's a proper meaning to the "Rei" in his name"... That it mean the "Zero" division in the Public Safety Police and things neatly linked together.

      But he really loved "Mobile Suit Gundam", and seeing how he uses our names as VAs in his work, I feel very thankful to him. I feel very glad, he even added the car plate... (Note 2)

      Q: "Last question. What are the highlights of "Zero The Enforcer"?"
      A: "In this movie, there's the "way adult men do things" plus "charm" as the themes I acted upon. There are several scenes that make you feel that, so I hope that you will savor them.

      Anyway, there's "Numbers very dear to me which I must protect even if I bet my life on it" (laughs) so I hope you go to see it several times, and that you fully experience the charm of Amuro Tooru. There's also the lines in the car that Sonoko-san accmails as well and which I want you to focus on. Counting on you guys."

      Caption of pic:
      "Great driving by Furuya (Rei) that Furuya (Tooru) - san likes. In the "Darkest Nightmare" the car drifts in the beginning by Amuro (Furuya), Akai and Curacao are reality!"

      Note 1: "A Matsuda RX-7 which isn't produced anymore at the present. The serial number of the Gundam, RX-78, comes from here."
      Note 2: "Amuro's car number plate is 73-10, Mr. Furuya's birthday is July 31, and has a 0 to match the "Zero" nickname.


      Interview mit Minami Takayama (Conans Synchronsprecherin)


      Profile:

      Edogawa Conan VA

      Originary from Tokyo Metropolitan Area. Her representative works are "Kiki's Delivery Service" as Kiki / Ursula, "Rantaro" as Inadera Rantarou, "YAIBA" as Kurogane Yaiba, "Ranma 1/2" as Tendo Nabiki, "Moomin" as Moomintroll amongst others.

      Q: "What's your first impression of the 22nd Detective Conan Movie, "Zero The Enforcer"?"
      A: "Good point. When I firstly read the script, I did think "Ah, maybe this story is a bit too complicated". If you see a lot of police dramas like I do, I think one would understand the existence and roles of the "Public Safety Police" and "Prosecution" but for those who don't see them and for children, I was like "would they understand it?". That was my first impression.

      But by when we finished the dubbing, the impression changed a bit. If you properly listen to what the characters say during the story, I think you'll be able to understand it."

      Q:"The movie's plot revolves around "Amuro is an enemy?". What did you think about Amuro Tooru or Furuya Rei? What are you impressions of Kazami Yuuya and Kuroda Hyoue?"
      A: "I did think that I wanted to prove that Amuro-san "isn't the enemy". Kazami-san appeared 2 movies ago, in "The Darkest Nightmare" but in this movie you get to know his relationship in the PSB with Furuya-san. He'll also appeared in the TV series in the future as well, I think.

      Superintendent Kuroda makes his movie debut in this movie. Whenever he appears in the TV series he's totally suspicious (laughs). He's as suspicious as always, but for some reason he doesn't feel dangerous. He probably is (exposes her deduction) ...or so i think. What I told you is still secret, though (laughs)."

      Q: "How about the dubbing work?"
      A: "It went very smoothly, and we finished it on that day. We almost took until past the peak (12:00 AM) but human drama was the axis so we focused on each one's lines and the tempo was good."

      Q: "How about your work together with Furuya Tooru-san?"
      A: "We didn't do much consulting about how we would perform the dubbing so but there was a point that Furuy-san asked "it's **, right?". "Yes, I think this is **.", "Thought so!". That was the confirmation we took with each other. We also check with each other the points that picked us in our lines.

      Truth is, when I made my debut, since I was playing a boy, I used Furuya-san's acting as a boy as reference. Of course, I can't act like he did but I did wonder what a "boy" is like? So I tried to get the gist from his voice acting. So, secretly, inside of my heart, I thought of him as my "teacher" (laughs). In the dubbing, I am always allowed to practice with my "teacher". He's a big senior with whom I can work very well so it was very fun.

      Q: "What's your impression of the new Director, Director Tachikawa?"
      A: "We got friendly very soon and I called him "Tacchi" (laughs). After the dubbing, I asked him "What's the genre you're apt at?". And he replied "I am apt at action, but... I guess human drama is it.". That's shown in this movie, indeed! He's a young director, but he gouges out the deep parts of humans.

      Since it involves deductions, I think that human dramas are very important. The deduction of the culprit, the actions of the cornered party, must be things that "humans do" or the whole thing will fail.

      The way the action scenes are scattered is good, but, if you don't properly depict "the human part", the story feels dull... There's been a lot of similar human drama in Conan movies insofar but this time around it felt "really hot". I think this is the director's tastes.

      I act on it, so you feel that it's a character with "body heat, and feels related to", that's a must have creed. You can hear the heart's sound, they breathe, they're not limited to the 2-d of the screen or the scene, it feels "alive", that's how I like to voice characters. So I like hot dramas like this one."

      Q: "The identity of "That Person" has been made public in the manga already, yet...?"
      A: "True. Truth is, during the recording of "The Darkest Nightmare", we casting (about 20 of us, was it?) tried to predict "Who's That Person?". When looking at the answer sheet I'd kept sealed since then, it had an accuracy rate of 25%! It'd seem I checked a lot of things during breaks (laughs).

      I also showed it to Aoyama-sensei, who'd come to see the dubbing. His reply was "What, they all know who it is!" (laughs). By the way, my answer was wrong.

      Sensei had let out hints before, and Karasuma Renya's name had considerably popped up but I ended up reading too much into the thing and wrote someone else as my reply to the question."

      Q: "Last question: what are the movie's highlights?"
      A: "In this 22nd movie, prosecution, police, and PSP... It's a story in which a lot of words you don't normally hear pop up.
      Also, in the interactions between characters, there are some crucial points as well so pay close attention and enjoy it until the very end without taking your eyes off the screen. It's a very, very exciting human drama.

      One last thing to finish, "Amuro-san is someone incredible.".


      Interview mit dem Produktionsteam


      Director Tachikawa

      Profile: Born in 1981. He revealed the "Death Billiards" which was his original idea, script and direction at the "Anime Mirai" of the Agency for Cultural Affairs in 2013. It was made into an anime named "Death Parade". He also directed "Mob Psycho 100".

      Q:"How were you appointed to direct this movie?"
      A:"In a raising program from the Agency for Cultural Affairs aimed at young animators I directed a serious film named "Death Billiards" and the judge in charge at the time was the "Detective Conan" Producer, Suwa (Michihiko) - san. He bought a lot of the stuff I made. And he asked me to "Direct the 22nd Movie". "

      Q: "What's your impression of "Detective Conan"?"
      A: "I first came into contact with Conan around Elementary... Or High... Or Middle. I loved to read it as a normal reader but there was 1 time I stopped reading. I came into contact with it again once I became a producer. When I got told to be the director of this movie, I re-read again from the part I'd seen years before."

      Q: "What are the parts you put most detail or attention to as the movie's director?"
      A: "To not to omit any of the good points that Conan had had insofar. The relations between characters are very interesting. So I took especially care and detail in character depiction. And this movie was more suspense-touch than the usual. The PSB is a main actor and the feeling's more serious. It's made so that if people who like mystery dramas see it then I think they will enjoy it."

      Q:"What's your favorite character?"
      A: "Haibara Ai, Professor Agasa, Mouri Kogoro, Hattori Heiji and Detective Takagi... I'd say. To avoid coming off as faulty, I also like Conan as well. But I rather like the famed side-characters who support the work. As well as the actual actors. So my preferences aim over there."

      Q: "What's your vision of Amuro Tooru as as director?"
      A: "I thought that fans would like his mysterious parts so we paid a lot of attention when depicting those. But I also wanted to show Amuro's house as well. I like those parts that reveal one's true nature. I think that it shouldn't be done, but, I also wanted to do a scene of him bathing in the bath."

      Q:"What's your favorite film?"
      A: "The first films remain in my memory... "The Time-bombed Skyscraper", "Countdown to Heaven", "The Phantom of Baker Street". I was by Producer Ishiyama (Keichi) -san that "it really looks like the balance in Director Kodama Kenji's (see note 1) works". I didn't have it on mind, truth to be told, but I do like the initial Conan so that's why it ended up like that, or so I think.

      Q: "Last question. What are the highlights of the movie?"
      A: "This movie mainly focuses on Amuro Tooru so there's a lot of cool scenes. Also, his gestures of combing up his hair or after he gets hurt... There's a lot of scenes showing aspects of him one normally doesn't see. So I hope you have a good look at the film while enjoying those day-to-day scenes."

      Note 1: "Director Kodama Kenji directed Conan Movie 1 to 7"

      Scriptwriter Sakurai:

      Profile:
      Born in 1970. Scriptwriter. He also was a movie producer at Toho. While he was in office, he received the 1st Yomiuri TV Scenario Great Award. He then became a freelancer scriptwriter. His representative works are the "Aibou (Pal)" TV series and the "Forensic Researcher Woman" TV series.

      Q:"This is the 4th movie the script of which you write up after the 17th movie "Private Eye in the Distant Seas", the 19th movie "Sunflowers of Inferno" and the 20th movie, "The Darkest Nightmare". How did you begin to get involved with Conan and how did you receive the offer for this project?"
      A: "At the time of "Private Eye in the Distant Seas", I think it was Producer Suwa (Michihiko) -san who contacted me, and I accepted the offer. It was an anime, so I thought of writing a story that couldn't be done in a normal film. After "The Darkest Nightmare", I was asked "When can you make a new script?" and I replied "I'm free in 1 year's time", that was how the offer came.

      Q: "What are the requests from Aoyama-sensei?"
      A: "There weren't many. But regarding Amuro's view of love I was told to "please add this line". As well as "Add this scene with Azusa" or "Add this at the end". Not more than that. Most of it I wrote it up myself but I directly asked him if there were parts I didn't understand. How Amuro would interact with Conan, for example. I hadn't gotten a grasp of it yet...
      Amuro doesn't yet know that Conan is Shinichi. But despite that, he supports him a lot and relies on him. I wanted to ask Sensei about what kind of distance feeling I should use."

      Q: "And what were the requests from Director Tachikawa?"
      A: "It was a harder story at the beginning but he changed it from a hard story to a softer Conan episode. It was a bit more severe and nerve-wrecking world. But that wasn't the first Conan story that the director wanted to do. There were several conflicts with that."

      Q: "What are Amuro's charms, in your opinion?"
      A: "He has a wide mental capacity. If it's not someone with a lot of room in their heart then it's hard to live in 3 different world-views. You'll get crushed. Even as Furuya, even as Amuro and even as Bourbon, I think that his base is always the same. His feeling of justice as well, he just changes his form of expressing things. I guess that both shooting a gun and brewing coffee stem from the same feeling of justice.
      Also, I personally like Furuya a lot, and being chose to, as a charge commander, write a story about Furuya and the PSB which hasn't appeared in the manga often was very exciting. I think it derives from him, even as Amuro, even as Bourbon and eaven as Furuya."

      Q: "Last question. What are the highlights of the movie?"
      A:"At first you see through the viewpoint of Conan, the main protagonist, and then you see through Furuya's PoV, and if you see it from a 3rd PoV that'd be the culprit's... And they all look like different stories. And, also, there might be a 4th PoV...
      Also, when you see it the first time, as a hint to guess the culprit, I wish that you pay attention to the "screen within the screen". A TV screen or a PC screen might appear but pay attention to that "screen within the screen" which one normally oversees. We're using a lot of screens this time, so there might be news announced there or investigation materials, there are hints rolling in several "screens"."


      Hierarchie der japanischen Polizei in Detektiv Conan




      Things you want to know before seeing "Zero The Enforcer"!

      The Japanese Police

      We will introduce the composition of the Japanese Police in the world of "Detective Conan" in a simplified manner. This movie will mainly involve the Public Safety Police. Let's check where Amuro (Furuya) belongs to.

      Amuro bubble: "I'm affiliated to the National Police Agency's Security Bureau, Security Planning Division", see!"

      National Police
      National Police Agency of Japan :

      Japanese Prime Minister
      ↓
      National Public Safety Committee: (Minister of State, Committee Chief and 5 Committee Members)
      ↓
      Metropolitan Police Department
      1) National Police Agency Chief
      2) Vice-Chief
      ↓
      Branches of MPD:

      1) Chief Government Secretariat
      2) Life Safety Bureau
      3) Crime Bureau
      4) Traffic Bureau
      5) Security Bureau
      ↓
      5.1 A) (Left branch): Security Planning Division -> Furuya Rei affiliated here
      5.2 A) (Left branch): Public Safety Division
      5.3 A) (Left branch): Security Division
      5.1 B) (Right branch): Foreign Affairs Information Department
      5.2 B) (Right branch): Foreign Affairs Division
      5.3 B) (Right branch): Counter International Terrorism Division
      6) Information Transmission Bureau

      Furuya (Amuro) belongs to the NPA's Security Bureau, Security Planning Division. He works as a Japanese Public Safety Police but secretly works in a section named "Zero" behind the scenes.

      NPA Info:

      . Japanese Administrative Organ
      . National Government Workers (Paid by the State)
      . Career / Semi-Career
      . Approximately 2.100 officers

      The NPA is the administrative organ of the police. Under the supervision of the Japanese Prime Minister there's the National Public Safety Committee, and the and the NPA is established under this committee's control. It creates the organization for the police to counter a wide range of organized crimes, and is also in command of each prefecture's police regarding crime examination and criminal statics.

      To put in simple words, the pinnacle of the Japanese Police is the NPA, and terrorism and organizations which involve the Public Safety are also controlled by the NPA with the cooperation of all prefectural polices. Also, to become an officer in the NPA one must either pass a Government Worker "General "Exam (career bureaucrats) or a Government Worker "Common" Exam (semi-career bureaucrats).

      Caption: "The Approval Rate of the careers is about 1% with a standard score of over 77. It's a super-hard exam. Furuya (Amuro) probably was a top-class approval case.


      Tokyo Metropolitan Area Police
      Metropolitan Police Department:
      Tokyo Metropolitan Area Governor
      ↓
      Tokyo Metropolitan Area Public Safety Committee
      ↓
      Metropolitan Police Department
      ↓
      Branches of MPD:
      ↓
      1) General Affairs Department
      2) Police Department
      3) Traffic Department -> Miyamoto Yumi, Miike Naeko
      4) Security Department -> Detective Matsuda ( Transferred to First Investigation Division of Criminal Department), Detective Hagiwara
      5) Regional Department
      6) Public Safety Department -> Kamazi Yuuya, Scotch
      7) Criminal Department -> First Investigation Division -> Superintendent Kuroda, Inspector Megure, Inspector Shiratori, Detective Satou, Detective Chiba, Detective Takagi
      8) Life Safety Department
      9) Counter Organized Crime Department

      MPD Info:

      1) Tokyo Metropolitan Area Administrative Organ
      2) Regional Government Workers (Paid by the Tokyo Metropolitan Area)
      3) Non-Career (Those with career come from the NPA)
      4) Approximately 43.500 officers

      It's the police organization of the Tokyo Metropolitan Area and the headquarters of it. They split the Tokyo Metropolitan Area in 10 Districts with their District HQs and 102 Police Stations. The prefectural police forces of each prefecture (such as Kanazawa or Osaka) have the same positioning but as the police organization protecting the capital of Japan, the MPD has further authority than other regional police forces. It has the biggest amount of police officers in Japan and it's a big-scale organization and is the best by far when compared to the regional forces.

      The greatest rank of the police, the Superintendent General of the Metropolitan Police, is always chosen from the chiefs of the MPD. There's also a lot of people who come from the NPA as well. Also, Peep-kun is the the symbol mascot of the MPD. In the MPD's HP one can even see anime.

      Caption: Kazami Yuuya is affiliated to the MPD's Public Safety Department. This section within the MPD is filled with elites. Scotch, who was undercover in the Black Organization, also belonged to this section.

      Public Safety:

      It's the name of a department established within the police to maintain the public safety.

      Mission: Prevent big incidents (such as terrorism) which might threaten the safety of Japan

      The Public Safety Police protecting Japan from terrorist threats. The "Zero" in which Amuro (Furuya) is involved with is a code-name which means "unexisting organization" and secretly acquire information from across the nation, as well as having the authority to mobilize the Japanese Public Safety Police. The "Backstage Administrator" is named as the top of the organization. Information gathered by "Zero" is reported to this figure. The missions of "Zero" are top-secret and Prefectural Police HQ Chiefs (Superintendent Supervisor Class) don't receive this information, either.

      Top panel, left bubble: "How about you get out already..."
      Bottom panel: "From my Japan..."

      Caption: He openly shows hostility to the FBI Investigators Jodie and Camel. Amuro (Furuya) has patriotism for Japan so they're words typical of him.

      Kazami Yuuya

      Kazami, who handles announcements in the great investigation meetings is a hi-ranked member within the MPD's PSD. One of the few who can contact Furuya without intermediaries.

      National Public Safety Police (right)

      The Public Safety Departments of all prefectures are under the administration of "Zero" as well. "Zero" is a small-scale elite unit so it doesn't need a deployment unit, the MPD and other Public Safety Police work as their hands and feet.

      Even within the NPA's Security Department, "Zero" is given out special orders to engage in out top-secret missions. By directly commanding the Public Safety Police, they prevent information leaking. Also, the Public Safety Police members keep a lot of things secret from their families as they live on.

      Public Prosecutor's Officer:

      1) Supreme Public Prosecutor's Office (1 Office): answers to the Supreme Court. There's only 1 in Tokyo and handles appeal cases from the Hi-Rank Courts.
      2) Hi-Rank PPO (8 Offices, 6 Branches): answers to Hi-Rank Courts. It has 8 offices: Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Sendai, Sapporo , Takamatsu.
      3) Regional PPO (50 Offices, 203 Branches): answers to Regional Courts and Domestic Courts. Located in all prefectures, including Hakodate, Asahikawa and Kushiro with a total of 50 Offices.
      4) District PPO (438 Officers): they answer to Simple Courts. There's 438 across Japan and handle light criminal cases.

      Procedures:

      1) Accusation / Indictment / Rejection and persons sent by investigation organizations such as police
      2) Prosecution Officer (Prosecutor) Investigation (Left) -> Indictment -> A) Trial Request (left), B) Simplified Request (right)
      3) Accepting Case -> Processing Case -> Non Indictment (Right flow)
      4) Trial

      The Public Prosecutor's Office supervises the work of the Japanese Prosecutors. As a special organ of the Ministry of Justice, it places the 4 types of Offices listed above across the nation.
      When the police arrest a suspect, they are sent to the prosecutor along with the case's records within 48 hours. The prosecution is carried by the prosecutor in charge who inquires the suspect and the persons given as references. If there's not enough evidence, they might request a new investigation to the police, or after enough consideration decide whether there's indictment or not. Cases that are indicted proceed to a trial.

      Police Ranks

      (About the ranks)
      Apart from their positions, police officers also have ranks. Those with career ascend without any exams. They begin from Assistant Inspector, and all other ranks below Superintendent Supervisor depend on the potential of the person.

      Those with semi-career begin from Police Sergeant and the max they can aspire to is Chief Superintendent.

      In the case of non-career persons, who are Regional Government Workers, they must undertake an exam to ascend their rank as well as work for a set number of years. The max they can aspire to is Chief Superintendent, but there's almost no-one who makes it that far.

      Also, those from Senior Superintendent and above become National Government Workers even if they don't have a career.

      Blue: National Government Worker (NGW)
      White: Regional Government Worker (RGW)

      (Not a Rank)
      NPA Chief (NGW)

      Note: The NPA's top assumes office as NPA Chief. It's the only person who's not part of the rank system but in terms of position, it's the highest rank a police officer can have.


      Ranks:
      1) Superintendent General of the Metropolitan Police (1 Person) (NGW)

      Note: The MPD's top assumed office as Superintendent General of the Metropolitan Police. There are no cases of someone who hasn't had a career assuming office. In the world of Conan, Hakuba Saguru's father occupies this rank.

      2) Superintendent Supervisor (38 Persons) (NGW)
      3) Chief Superintendent (NGW)
      4) Senior Superintendent (NGW)
      Note: approx. 0.5% combined
      5) Superintendent (Aprox. 2.5% of the total) (Both)
      6) Inspector (Aprox. 5~6% of the total) (Both)
      7) Assistant Inspector (Aprox. 30% of the total) (Both)
      8) Police Sergeant (Both)
      9) Police Officer (RGW)
      Note: both are aprox. 60% of the total

      Japanese Police: Aprox. 300,000 Members

      Other Words' Explanations:

      . Suspect (higisha): the suspect (yougisha) believed to be the culprit of the incident / case. Its reading resembles that of higaisha (victim) so information media often use the word yougisha instead.

      . Send to prosecutor (souken): the police send the case / incident they've been investigating to the prosecutor. "Person sending (migara souken)" is sending the suspect along with documents or evidence to the prosecutor. "Material sending (shorui souken)" is sending only the materials without arresting the suspect.

      . Prosecutor Officer (kensatsukan) / Prosecutor (kenshi): prosecutors and assistant prosecutors (fukukenshi) are amed Prosecutor Officers. Regarding the case sent to them by the police (souken) they re-check whether the suspect is the culprit or not and decide whether a trial will be held or not (indictment / kise). If there's not enough evidence they might request the police to carry a new investigation. In Japan, prosecutors can indict people.

      . Indictment (kiso): to carry out a trial. If a prosecutor indicts, things move from the investigation phases to the trial proceedings. The suspect (yougisha / higisha) will become an accused (hikokunin)

      . Non-Indictment (fukiso): the measure taken when a case sent to the prosecutor (souken) is deemed to not need a trial. There are 3 types of non-indictment. When the suspicion of a crime is cleared up is "no suspicion (kengi nashi)". When the suspicion of a crime isn't totally cleared up but the trial judges that they can't be declared guilty is "insufficient suspicion (kengi fujuubun). And even if the suspect is known to be guilty, there's the decision by the prosecutor according to the circumstances to do a "indictment postponement (kiso yuuyo)".

      . Region Prosecutor (chiken): short for Regional Public Prosecutor's Officer. In the movie, it also serves as shortening for "Tokyo Region Prosecutor" to refer to the Tokyo Region Public Prosecutor's Office.

      . Coming voluntarily to be questioned (nini doukou): when police investigation organs carry out inquires of the suspect, and the suspect appears in a police station escorted by a police officer. Suspects which haven't been arrest can reject it. It means to be escorted voluntarily (out of one's free will).

      - Court-appointed attorney (kokusen bengonin): when someone who's been arrested can't call for a lawyer of their own due to poverty or other reasons, the nation pays the fees of a lawyer and appoints one. These lawyers cannot chose who'll defend so in most cases they're appointed after the suspects are indicted, so it's very hard for them to turn over a indictment processing into a non-indictment.
