FILE 705: Kobayashi Sensei’s Love
<Metropolitan Police Department>
Satou: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Satou: Why do you look sloppy? // You’re a cop and you should look like one.
Takagi: I can’t help it… / I was on a stakeout last night… // <yawn>
Satou: Geez! // At least fix your tie!
Takagi: It’s fine… // I’ve finished my report and I’m just going home to sleep now…
Satou: Hey! // Stop moving!!
Takagi: Oh… // Sorry…
Takagi: You know what? It’s fine! // I can do it myself!
Takagi: See you later… // Excuse me, everyone…
Cop1: That Takagi… He’s showing off, eh?
Cop2: I heard they’ve been going out to dinner more often…
Cop3: I heard an unconfirmed rumor that they’ve kissed…
Cop1: What!? Without my permission!?
Cop2: Hey, Shiratori! Do you know anything about this!?
Cop2: About Takagi and Satou!!
Cop4: You’re the highest ranking official of the Satou Miwako protection squad!
Shiratori: I think everything is going smoothly between them. // Their feelings are mutual…
Shiratori: And I’m going to step down from my position of that squad too…
Cop3: Wha… // Shiratori!?
Cop2: What’s come over him?
Cop2: I heard a rumor that he has a girlfriend now…
Cop2: And she looks just like Satou-san…
Cop3: Who is it!?
Cop1: I’m not entirely sure, but I heard she’s a teacher… // They see each other and speak on the phone a lot…
Kobayashi: Okay! // Sure…
Kobayashi: So I shouldn’t go out alone at night?
Shiratori: Right… If you can, please avoid going out after 9pm…
Shiratori: There have been a lot of muggings in your neighborhood…
Kobayashi: I saw that on the news this morning! / I heard the suspect is a woman…
Kobayashi: I’m curious as to why… // you always call me…
Shiratori: I was worried about you… // Am I being a bother?
Kobayashi: Not at all!! // Not a bother!! / I appreciate it!!
Shiratori: I’m glad… Please be careful…
Kobayashi: Yes! / Thank you so much!! // Phew… <beep>
Conan: We’ve said that we finished cleaning up the classroom a few times now…
Kobayashi: Oh…! // Thanks! <click>
Mitsuhiko: Was that Inspector Shiratori by any chance?
Kobayashi: Yes… // Why?
Genta: It’s totally obvious!
Ayumi: You’re all red!
Ai: Has he said it yet? // That he likes you?
Kobayashi: What!? // Why!?
Ai: I guess not yet…
Mitsuhiko: Don’t you recognize Inspector Shiratori from anywhere?
Ayumi: Like, if you’ve met him when you were a child!
Kobayashi: Now that you mention it… It doesn’t feel like it’s the first time I’ve met him… // It feels like there’s a memory somewhere deep in my heart…
Genta: I’ll give you a hint! At the bookstore…
Conan: Inspector Shiratori said that he wants to tell her directly // about the time he helped her catch the people trying to steal at the bookstore, so we have to keep quiet!
Kobayashi: Books? Books…?
Genta: Oh, right…
Conan: He’s probably looking for the best time to say it and surprise her…
Ayumi: It makes me anxious!
Kobayashi: Oh!! // Could it be…
Kobayashi: Is today the day “The 20 Mistakes Made by Kaijin 20 Mensou*” comes out!?
*Kaijin 20 Mensou: Phantom of 20 Faces; a character in a novel by Edogawa Ranpo
Conan: Oh… / Yeah…
Kobayashi: I forgot to preorder it so I have to buy it today…
Conan: You better hurry up then! / That bookstore you always go to is closing early today because of the fireworks…
Kobayashi: Are you all going too?
Genta: Yeah! // We’re meeting up at Conan’s at 6:30!
Kobayashi: That’s a first… // You all always go to Professor Agasa’s house and go with him.
Mitsuhiko: He’s busy helping someone move today…
Kobayashi: Then you’re going with Detective Mouri?
Conan: He’s going with a friend to drink and watch them… / Ran neechan is away with her karate club members…
Ai: We’re going by ourselves… // Is there a problem?
Kobayashi: Of couse // there’s a problem!!
Ayumi: Hurry hurry!! // Kobayashi sensei!
Kobayashi: Sorry… // It was busy at the bookstore… <pant pant>
Ayumi: Oh no!
Mitsuhiko: There goes the first one!
Genta: Oh man! We would have made it if it was just us!
Kobayashi: Oh stop! It’s too dangerous! // There have been muggings lately, so we have to be careful…
Ai: Is that what Inspector Shiratori told you?
Kobayashi: Oh… // Yes…
Conan: She’s head over heels…
Kobayashi: I’m sure he’s worried because // I can seem helpless sometimes…
Ayumi: I think being worried about someone… // Has something to do with liking that person!
Kobayashi: Re… // Really?
Kobayashi: You think so?
Kobayashi: But… I wonder what he would be like a boyfriend? // He’s a police officer… / So I have to worry about him when he’s after a dangerous suspect… // But it might be fun to be able to hear those stories! // You know how I love mysteries… // Hey! // Where did they go!?
Genta: Whoa! Look at all the shops!
Ayumi: I want cotton candy!!
Mitsuhiko: There are fishing games too!
Ai: Where’s sensei?
Conan: Hm? I told her we’re taking the short-cut…
Conan: She’s a little helpless, but… // I bet she can follow the people and the fireworks to find her way.
Kobayashi: Oh no… // Where are they?
Kobayashi: Oh yeah… Maybe I’ll send Inspector Kobayashi a message… // “Inspector, I have a case for you…” // “5 kids vanished in front of my eyes…” // Just kidding…
??: JUST SHUT UP AND HAND IT OVER!! // I’LL KILL YOU!!
Kobayashi: Huh? // Someone’s fighting over there… // Could it be a mugging!?
Kobayashi: Should I call the Inspector? // But if I’m wrong, I’ll just be a pest… // I wish the kids were here at least… // What if the kids are in trouble? // I have to check it out myself…
Kobayashi: What? // What? // What was that?
Kobayashi: No way…
Ai: She’s taking a while…
Conan: Geez… / How did she get lost?
Conan: I’m going to go find sensei so you all stick together, okay?
Kobayashi: Uh… // Are you okay?
Kobayashi: Ah… <AAAAAAH!>
Conan: Se… // Sensei!?
Kobayashi: No… // way…
Kobayashi: Don’t come!!
Kobayashi: If you come now, that person will…
Conan: That person was still here // right now… // The person… // the murderer…
