A week after losing a close match in their middle school soccer championships, Shinichi's team finds a mysterious list of written criticisms in their teamroom, critiquing each member on their skills. Shinichi is able to discover the 'culprit', but is there something else the creator wishes to do?
This OVA provides examples of:
- A Day in the Limelight: Again Shinichi as Conan is only the narrator and Shinichi as himself is The Protagonist.
- Depending on the Writer: Ran, who can be a Clingy Jealous Girl at times, shows no signs of envy at Shinichi taking Naomi Sawamura under his wing, and even teases him about potentially liking her.
- End of an Age: Along with Detective Conan OVA 12 The Miracle Of Excalibur, also released in 2012, this is the final regular Detective Conan OVA.
- History Repeats: Shinichi played soccer with Naomi just like how he would play soccer with Kazuyoshi Miura as Conan.
- Whole Episode Flashback: This entire OVA takes place before Shinichi was poisoned.
- You Remind Me of X: Shinichi says Naomi reminds him of someone, but we know its Ran.
