Episode 537: Kaitou Kid vs the Strongest Vault Part 1
Episode 538: Kaitou Kid vs the Strongest Vault Part 2
~ Another episode with Kaitou Kid-sama!! Weeeee~
The usual scenario when we have a Kaitou Kid episode is that Kid is trying to steal a very precious item that is being protected by Jirokichi Suzuki. Jirokichi long swear that he will capture Kaitou Kid with his own hands but as alwasys, the great thief escapes with flying colors.
But this time this is different.
Episode 537 and 538 is a complete opposite of what is the usual. This time, Jirokichi asked for the help of Kid to unlock the strongest vault ever made. The vault was designed by the master of traps himself, Samizu Kachiemon so expect that the vault is not just any ordinary vault. It's complexity and strict security measures would post a challenge to any thief that would try to break in the vault. Of course, Conan is there along with Ran, Mouri and Sonoko. And surprisingly, this time also, Conan and Kid worked together in order to open the vault. Of course the deduction is for Conan while Kid did the opening of the vault.
And so why did Jirokichi asked for help? His dog, Lupin, was stuck inside the vault and weird as it seems, he cannot open the door because the dog has the key to the vault. And so, even though his pride might get hurt, he asked for the help of Kaitou Kid to open the vault.
I do not need to say that they succeeded in opening the vault. Of course, it is Kid-sama! No vault is complex for him! Kid disguised as the clumsy new maid of the Suzuki family to get inside. You know this guy, he is not used to doing flashy entrance scenes and he loves to play disguises. Conan was able to see through his disguise (as alwaysss...) and that's when the collaboration started.
The story ended with Kid-sama saying that he is a real gentleman thief. After all, this could be a trap but Kid made a visit secretly and decided to help after seeing that the motive is true. And then he sets off as his task is now done.
