Finally the moment we’ve been waiting for, the official air date for the first episode of the Mystery Train arc has been announced. Episode 701 will kick things off on July 13th. Episodes 702 and 703 will air on July 20th and July 27th respectively.
The announced episode titles are as followed:
Episode 701: The Raven Express (All Aboard)
Episode 702: The Raven Express (Tunnel)
Episode 703: The Raven Express (Junction)
To all Detective Conan fans, Get Hyped!
So apparently this arc is going to be five episodes instead of four. I wonder how are they going to pull it off as the arc is seven chapters long. Probably one of the episodes will have a bad pacing while comparing it with the other four. I’m still very hyped for this arc.
The Raven Express (Releasing Smoke) airs on August 3rd
Episode 705: The Raven Express (Final Destination)
airs on August 10th
The schedule has been changed. The arc is now four episodes long and not five. Now the episodes are:
Episode 701: The Raven Express (All Aboard) airs on July 13th
Episode 702: The Raven Express (Tunnel) airs on July 20th
Episode 703: The Raven Express (Junction) airs on July 27th
Episode 704: The Raven Express (Final Destination) airs on August 3rd
Apparently TMS realized that making five episodes for seven chapters will be difficult, but I guess we will never know the real reason why they changed it to four episodes. I’m actually relieved that it’s four episodes now. The pacing will be much better. Episode 705 will still air on August 10th and it will be the start of a new manga-based case.
