After decoding the letter, Conan goes to meet the Phantom Thief face to face at a rooftop of a hotel. He lights a firework hoping that the cops would come and arrest him, but to his surprise Kid imitates the inspector’s voice and calls all of the inspector’s men to the rooftop. Just when it looks like the Phantom Thief is cornered he escapes with a blast bomb and leaves another note containg another clue.

This time the note states that he will board the ship that is carrying the Black Star. While last time was a test run this time he will actually steal the Black Star. To try and prevent this, Tomoko devises a plan. She has given all the guests a fake Black Star replica in hopes that Kaitou Kid won’t be able to figure it out before the cruise ends. Sonoko can’t find her sister so she calls her and finds out that her sister and dad are still at home. This means that the Shiro Suzuki they just saw had to be the Kaitou Kid in disguise.

Tomoko brings in a magician to put on a show but Kaitou Kid then drops another letter. Fake Black Stars start exploding and the guests start panicking. Thats when he steals the real Black Star which Tomoko was wearing the whole time. Conan on the other hand has figured out where and who the Kaitou Kid is.
