About Fanlistings

A fanlisting is basically an online list of fans for almost anything. Fans from around the world visit the site, and joining/creating/etc. is free; you just need your name, country, and in most cases, an email address. Most fanlistings are just fanlistings, but some feature more content, while others may even have an entire fansite portion dedicated to the subject.

About the Movie

In the city of Kyoto, Hattori Heiji, the "detective of the West," fell in love with a girl at a young age; to this day, he has yet to meet her again. One day, a masked man kills four people who are seemingly connected through the possession of a cryptic pictogram, as well as a book on folktale. Recent news of a temple's missing Buddha statue's whereabouts have brought Conan/Shin'ichi and Heiji together, much thanks to Mouri Kogorou's fame. In between Kogorou's crazy deductions, Conan and Heiji must race against time. Will they decipher the pictogram before the Buddhist temple must announce to the public that it was stolen eight years before? Who is behind these murderers, and what is their intention? What does the pictogram lead to? Will Heiji meet his first love during this case? All these are answered when the paths to these cases intersect.

This is the first Conan movie which features Hattori as a main character (compared to his sparse roles in the television series). Crossroad also has, in my opinion, one of the most hilarious introductory scenes from all the Conan movies I've watched. Hattori gets plenty of screentime, so if you're a fan of the Kansai-ben detective, don't miss this.

Interesting things to note are that since opening on 19 April 2003, box office sales have broken 3.2 billion yen (approx. $26.6 million USD), and has become the second-highest grossing Conan film to date. The movie that is on top is its "prequel" BAKER STREET no Bourei. It was also the last movie directed by Kodama Kanetsugu, who had directed the six previous movies, too.

About the Title

When I first applied for this fanlisting, I was unsure of what title to pick. o___O Technically, the title reads as "Meitantei Conan: Meikyuu no Crossroad" (Meitantei KONAN: Meikyuu no KUROSURO-DO), but the kanji that read "Crossroad" are read together as juujiro. As a result, the title should be read as "Meitantei Conan: Meikyuu no Juujiro," and that's what I ultimately chose as the title.

The translation was also a bit weird. The official translation is "Crossroad in the Ancient Capital," but juujiro actually means "crossroads." I just went with the official one 'cause that's the easiest one to choose. XD
