Detective Conan: The Culprit Hanzawa Episode 2 Recap
Hanzawa enters the city of Beika carrying a yellow bag and already planning to kill someone. He arrived at the station, where he saw two high school girls walking toward the station. Out of them, one girl’s ticket falls off.
So he returned it back to the. But to his surprise, the girls were disgusted by his look. Whispering into each other ears that he looks like a creep and that they haven’t seen someone like him in the city before.
After a few seconds, we see Hanzawa inserting the ticket into the ticket machine to pass through. But when he tries to cross the barrier, the barrier automatically closes, indicating Hanzawa didn’t insert the ticket properly. After this incident, the officer guided Hanzawa. And taught how to correctly insert the ticket.
After seeing how clumsy Hanzawa is, one of the two girls started laughing at him, saying he was so cute. But the other girl warned her not to laugh at weird-looking strangers. After watching the girls laugh at him, Hanzawa was very angry and started to plan how he would kill them.
But he let them go and started looking for a place to live.
In the search, he came across an advertisement related to a rental apartment. And he was shocked to see how cheap the apartments were renting. So, he went to the location mentioned in the advertisement and found out the 32,000 yen apartment was actually available.
But he started to suspect the owner, whether this was a trap. And the owner told Hanzawa that in this apartment, a woman was killed.
After listening to this, Hanzawa got freaked out and asked for another room. But all the rooms the owner guided Hanzawa to had deaths in them. So Hanzawa asked for a normal room with no deaths, and the owner told him for a normal room, he had to pay 150,000 yen.
But Hanzawa was not happy because the owner was renting the place at a very high cost. So he started to plan whether he should threaten the owner and reduce the price to 120,000 yen. But again, we see him not taking any action.
