At the same time, Conan and Heiji knew where Kaito Kid would appear due to seeing a watch which gave Conan an idea.

Conan immediately returned the egg to the Suzuki family. As a result, the exhibition at the Museum was canceled, the eggs will be brought back to Tokyo with the whole crew on the Suzuki family yacht.
On the way to Tokyo, Natsumi told him everything. He showed them a partial sketch of two eggs and a key, which had been found among his late grandmother’s memento. At the same time, the detective instinct is very intense. Conan senses that the mysterious culprit who shot the Kid is on the ship with them.
Sure enough, that night Sagawa was found dead in his room with a gunshot wound to his eye. Knowing this, the train stops and Inspector Megure along with his men Takagi and Shiratori arrive by helicopter to inspect the crime scene.
At first, they suspect Sonoko’s father’s servant, Nishino, but Conan can confirm that it is not him but Scorpion.
Scorpion is a notorious assassin who always shoots his victims in the right eye. Not to mention a lifeboat missing on board proves that Scorpio escaped. After landing in Tokyo, the party arrives at the Natsumi clan’s castle in Yokosuka. Little do they know that Scorpio is aiming for the second egg.

Not realizing that Inui is dead, they continue to explore deeper into the tunnel, until they find a coffin with a corpse holding a second egg.
When it was opened, it was true that the egg belonged to the Natsumi family. However, just about to deliver, suddenly two eggs were splashed by the crooks, making no one dare to chase. Conan was the only one chasing the culprit. He believes that Scorpio is the researcher Seiran.
He shot his victim in the right eye to avenge his ancestor, Rasputin, whose body was found with the missing eye. And whoever opposes Rasputin he will kill, he even attacks Ran because Ran asked who Rasputin is.
Meanwhile, the egg he stole is also an arena for revenge. When he was about to run away, Conan stopped Seiran and the case was finally over.

Can you imagine how billionaire the Suzuki family is?
This film is Detective Conan’s first film to discuss a bit the history of another country, namely Russia. Through the Royal Easter Egg, it’s a source of trouble.
We get to know some historical figures; one of them is Rasputin as the ancestor and clan of the famous Tsar Nicholas II. The Royal Easter Egg itself is a truly special egg.
