Shuichi Akai

Shuichi Akai - Detective Conan Wiki

Shuichi Akai is an FBI agent and a major figure in the battle against the Men in Black Organization in the anime and manga Detective Conan. For a time, he assumed the identity of Dai Moroboshi, and infiltrated the Organization, where his code name was Rye. During this period, he became an enemy of Gin and Bourbon, and fell in love with Akemi Miyano. These days, he can also be found under the name of Subaru Okiya.

Shuichi Akai is an American-Japanese member of the FBI who is in Japan on a special mission to capture Vermouth. His superior is James Black, and his partner, Jodie Starling. He infiltrated the Organization under the name Dai Moroboshi as a spy, and dated Akemi Miyano, one of the lower-ranking members, to gather information on the Organization for the FBI, including meeting her sister, Shiho Miyano. He actually fell in love with Akemi, and had to break off his relationship with Jodie. Two years before the current timeline, he received the code name "Rye" and was called to work under Gin. The FBI set a trap in the hope of capturing Gin in a warehouse where a meeting was supposed to take place, but his cover was blown by the Organization, due to a mistake by his colleague André Camel, and Gin never showed up. When Akemi was killed, he declared her murderer, Gin (with whom he'd had tensions before), to be his personal enemy.


Akai is a very professional agent. Even with personal problems, he remains aloof and rather cold. However, he has a strong sense of loyalty. Intelligent, and capable of very good deductions, he is the Organization's #1 enemy: he has even earned the nickname "Silver Bullet". He continues to seek a way to destroy the Organization and avenge Akemi's death. He also likes to be independent, especially from the FBI and his boss James Black. James Black says that Akai is an introverted person, who doesn't easily become close to other people, and has closed himself off even more with Akemi's death. He doesn't often speak his mind. Akai seems to get on well with Conan.


Akai is a tall man of Japanese origin. He has permanent dark circles under his eyes. He is often described as having a sharp gaze. His eyes are blue in the manga (like all the other characters), and green in the anime. He also always wears a black cap. A year ago, he had long hair, but cut it after Akemi's death. Akai is left-handed, a heavy smoker, and his favorite drink is bourbon.

He's often dressed in a gray jacket over a black T-shirt, with black pants, and his beanie.



Akai is very clever. He once created an ambush, knowing that the Organization would come and try to kill Kogoro . He also said that "making them think the FBI planted the bug was a priority".

Akai is a very good sniper


Akai, is a very good sniper, able to titter at a small piece of chewing gum in Gin's hand at 700 yards, which is far more than the Organization's professional snipers, Chianti and Korn. He also manages to shoot Gin from the same distance. Akai is also good with shotguns; he shoots Vermouth at the hip, faster than she can shoot her pistol.

Akai is a very good driver. He drives fast and is very skilful, whether in traffic jams or making U-turns. He drives a Chevrolet C1500.


The bus hijacking (Manga: 287-289; Anime: 230-231)
Shuichi Akai (Episode 230-231)

Conan , Agasa and the Detective Boys board a bus to go skiing. Akai also boards the bus, wearing a mask over his face, behind Jodie Starling and Vermouth disguised as Tomoaki Araide . The bus is taken hostage by burglars demanding the release of their boss, and Conan discovers that they have an accomplice in the back of the bus, where Shuichi Akai is seated. Akai is therefore a suspect. After the boss is released, the robbers call Akai and Araide to the front of the bus, and ask them to wear their ski suits. Conan ruins the kidnappers' plans by bringing the bus driver to a sudden halt, knocking the kidnappers off their feet. Akai stays on his feet and attacks one of them, but is confused when it falls before he can touch it: Conan put him to sleep with his watch first. The police apprehend the kidnappers and Akai watches as Araide accosts Conan, trying to look at the wound on his arm. Before leaving, Akai records a message saying he was unable to find Vermouth's target: Shiho Miyano.

The kidnapping of James Black (Manga: 325-327; Anime: 258-259)
James plans to meet Akai after a show. He's unable to do so because he's accosted by reporters who mistake him for the show's wealthy sponsor, then meets the Detective Boys, with whom he has a chat. James is then mistakenly kidnapped by criminals seeking a ransom. Akai goes in search of James Black. As a former member of the Organization, Akai tricks Haibara into thinking that one of the men in black is near her.

Akai swears revenge on Gin

Akai figures out where James is and catches up with the kidnappers. He then goes to the front when he sees Conan and the police setting up a trap to stop the kidnappers' car. Akai drives past Agasa's car and looks inside, where Conan shields Haibara from his view. After his release, James takes advantage of the confusion to leave with Akai, before being questioned by the police. James tells him what happened and asks Akai if he brought him here to "get back together with his girlfriend" (he's referring to Gin). Akai confirms and says that he wants to make his girlfriend (koibito) regret letting him down, and that she'll cry tears of blood. He will later make Gin "cry" tears of blood, when his bullet grazes Gin's cheek in the events of "Black Impact".

Conan's suspicions
Conan suspects that another member of the Organization was present at the funeral ceremony (Episode 177-179) after reflecting on how Picso managed to obtain another purple handkerchief, while Conan had retrieved his own from the crime scene. After the bus hijacking, Habaira tells Conan that there was definitely someone from the Organization on the bus. Conan's first suspect is Shuichi Akai, whose attitude struck him as suspicious. Conan recognizes Akai from the James Black kidnapping. Conan seems to be quite nervous about Akai investigating them, when, for example, in one case, one of the suspects says he saw someone in a black hat (who was actually Makoto ).

Sato's omiai (Manga: 328-330; Anime: 253-254) and Valentine's Day (Manga: 331-334; Anime: 266-268)
Ran thinks he's met Akai somewhere

Ran notices Akai leaving the restaurant where Miwako Sato is for her omiai with Shiratori. Akai is there to keep an eye on Dr.Araide, who is actually Vermouth in disguise. Ran realizes she's met him once before, but can't remember where. Later, while in the mountains with Sonoko and Conan, one of the suspects claims to have seen a tall man wearing a black cap. Ran says she might know this person, and Conan wonders if she's talking about Akai. He then starts to ask her about it, but changes his mind before finishing his sentence.

Forgetting the crime memento (Manga: 335-337; Anime: 269-270)
Takagi informs Conan that all the archives of the cases solved by Kogoro were stolen from the police station on the day of the bus hijacking, before being further restored.Conan begins to wonder who the target is and suspects Akai of being behind it because of the timing. He wonders if Akai is a member of the Organization. He then tries to call the Mouri Detective Agency, but no one answers. Conan rushes over and finds no one there. Just when Conan begins to worry that Akai has taken care of Ran and Kogoro, he is relieved to learn that Ran has only gone out to buy meat. He tries again to ask Ran if she knows Akai, but changes his mind, thinking there's no way Ran would know someone like Akai. Meanwhile, Akai stands outside Detective Mouri's agency, watching.

Shinichi Kudo in New York (Manga: 350-354; Anime: 286-288)
Akai tries to take Ran away from the serial killer

A year before the current events, Shinichi, Ran, Yukiko take a trip to New York, while Vermouth and Akai are in the United States. After leaving Yukiko, Shinichi and Ran at the theater, Sharon Vineyard (i.e. Vermouth) disguises herself as a silver-haired serial killer in order to trap and kill Shuichi Akai. Vermouth underestimates Akai, and shoots from his side. Vermouth escapes, but Akai continues to search for her. He then meets Ran, who is waiting in the rain for Shinichi near a cab. The cab driver and Ran initially believe that Akai is the serial killer, and the cab driver flees, leaving Ran alone. Akai asks Ran if she's seen a man with long silver hair. One of Akai's colleagues arrives and asks Akai if he's found the serial killer, and Ran sees the FBI logo on his jacket. Akai grabs Ran by the arm to take her away from this corner, but she resists because Shinichi is still there. Akai then coldly orders Ran to leave the area because it's dangerous.

Meeting Ran (Manga: 379-380; Anime:308-309)
Ran meets Akai

Conan and Akai are on the street, heading home. Ran explains to Conan how difficult it is to wait for Shinichi's return, and begins to cry. He approaches a phone booth, and Akai steps out. Ran and Akai recognize each other. Conan is surprised that Ran and Akai seem to know each other, and asks Ran who he is. Ran then tells him the story of how she met Akai in New York. She mentions seeing a man in an FBI jacket. As Akai walks away, Conan loses sight of him. Conan is surprised by this new information and wonders what the FBI is doing in Japan. He also considers the possibility that Shuichi Akai is an Organization spy in the FBI, as well as the fact that he killed the serial killer in New York, and is involved in Haibara's past .

Contact with the Organization (Manga: 383; Anime: 311)
Haibara finds Conan passed out in a locker at Kenbashi station. As they leave, Akai sees Haibara and immediately recognizes her. Akai's gaze triggers Haibara's sense of his presence, and she looks around, frightened, to see where it's coming from, but Akai has already retreated, and she doesn't have time to catch a glimpse of him.

Following Yukiko (Manga: 417-419; Anime: 335-336)
Akai finds the resemblance between Ai and Shiho striking

Shuichi Akai, suspicious that Haibara is Shiho, asks two people to follow Yukiko as she leads the Junior Detectives to a studio to see the preview of Kamen Yaiba. The two take several photos, including one that Akai keeps in his truck afterwards. Conan and Yukiko notice that they are being followed. They continue to wait in the parking lot until Takagi comes to see them, at Conan's request. They then tell Akai that they can't continue their stalking. In the end, Akai looks again at the developed photos they've been given, and thinks the resemblance between Haibara and Shiho Miyano is too obvious to ignore.

The four porsches (Manga: 420-422; Anime: 338-339)
While driving, Akai sees Conan on a live TV show, waiting in line for a restaurant. He quickly heads for the mall where Conan is. When he arrives, the police are on the scene, as a murder has occurred. Agasa calls Araide to fetch Haibara, and Akai overhears the conversation through the microphones in Araide's office. He follows Jodie and Araide to Agasa's house and waits outside to eavesdrop on the conversations using the microphones Jodie has just installed in Agasa's house.

Confrontation with Vermouth (Manga: 429-434; Anime: 345)
Akai at the confrontation with Vermouth

Conan and Jodie confront Vermouth and reveal his disguise. During the confrontation, Jodie is wounded by a shot from Calvados, a sniper hidden on some sort of shipping crate. Calvados also tries to shoot Ran, who rushes to Haibara to protect her from Vermouth's shots. Akai sneaks up behind Calvados and disables him, silently breaking his legs and taking his rifle, shotgun and three pistols. Akai then walks towards Jodie and Vermouth. Vermouth mistakenly thinks the footsteps are coming from Calvados. She is then shocked when she sees that it is Akai who is coming. Vermouth tries to shoot him, but Akai fires first, hitting his bulletproof vest and breaking a few ribs. He also lightly scratches Vermouth's face, proving that she's not wearing a mask. To escape, Vermouth grabs the unconscious Conan and takes him hostage, fleeing in Jodie's car. To prevent them from following her, she shoots through her rear-view mirror and hits the gas tank of Araide's car, causing it to explode. Akai notices, however, that at least they have his accomplice, Calvados, but at this point, Calvados commits suicide with another gun that Akai hadn't seen. Akai then hears police sirens and tells Jodie to make up a story involving a kidnapping case. Before leaving, he tells Jodie that he's not yet ready to see Haibara.

Black Impact (Manga: 499-504; Anime: 425)

Kogoro Mouri , Ran and Conan help reporter Rena Mizunashi solve a doorbell case. To catch the prankster, Conan sticks a gum-wrapped microphone in front of the door. The case is solved, but Conan forgets the microphone, which ends up stuck to the bottom of Rena's shoe. Conan discovers that Rena is a member of the Organization of Men in Black, known as Kir, and that she is involved in an assassination plot. Conan must find the microphone before the Organization notices and suspects Kogoro of planting it. Jodie Starling contacts Akai and explains the difficult situation, but doesn't know what he's going to do. James Black explains that Akai is still an introvert, and has become even more withdrawn since the death of his girlfriend (later revealed to be Akemi Miyano).

Akai shoots Gin

After hearing a lot of interference on their radios, Gin looks for the cause and discovers Conan's microphone/tracker on Kir's shoe, which she left in the car when changing clothes. With the boss's agreement, Gin abandons the original mission and heads for Detective Mouri's Agency to kill Kogoro. Conan narrowly prevents Kogoro's assassination, but Gin still has Conan's tracker with his fingerprints on it. As Gin holds it up for a closer look, Akai shoots at it from a building 700 yards away, knocking the gum out of Gin's hands. Gin grabs Korn's rifle and uses it to locate Shuichi Akai. Just as he finds him, Akai fires a bullet that grazes Gin's left cheek, causing him to bleed. At this point, Akai says "we meet at last, my dear, dear koibito-san". Gosho Aoyama uses the word "koibito" in a double sense. Indeed, he uses the kanji for "old enemy" (宿敵), but the furigana (pronunciation) of "koibito" (こいびと), giving Akai's words a double meaning. Akai has ironically dubbed Gin "the beloved", despite the fact that he considers him his sworn enemy. By flaying Gin's cheek, Akai fulfills the promise he made at the end of the James Black kidnapping, to make his "lover" shed tears of blood.

Akai then fires twice into Gin's bulletproof vest to encourage him to leave quickly, while deliberately not killing Gin, although he was capable of doing so. Akai later explains that he wanted to avoid a shootout in the middle of Beika, where people could have been hurt. Despite Gin's misgivings, Akai managed to make the Organization believe that the FBI was behind the tracker, and that Kogoro was merely bait.

Kir in hospital (Manga: 550; Anime: 462)

The FBI discusses what to do with Mizunashi Rena. Akai wants to use her as bait to trap the Organization and notices that her name is a pun on "007", reminiscent of James Bond.

The false patient (Manga: 595-598; Anime: 495-497)

After hearing that Eisuke Hondo is in Haido Central Hospital after finding a clue, Conan and Jodie talk about Ethan Hondo. Jodie says that Akai verified that Ethan Hondo was a CIA agent. Conan asks Ran about the clue found by Eisuke, and discovers, that it's someone dialing the Organization boss's phone number. Jodie reports to Akai that a member of the Organization has infiltrated the hospital. Akai hears the news and heads for Rena's room. He already suspects that Rena is also a member of the CIA, and wants to use her against the Organization.

Akai pursues Kusuda Rikumichi, who has escaped.

Conan asks one of the nurses about Eisuke, and she tells him about another patient (the infiltrated Organization member) who asked about Rena Mizunashi. Akai seems happy to hear the news, and thinks it's a good opportunity to get a second lead. The FBI obtains profiles of the patients most likely to be members of the Organization, and Conan films them in their rooms. Both Akai and Conan correctly deduce that the Organization member hiding in the hospital is Rikumichi Kusuda. The FBI keep an eye on Kusuda, but he is spotted and threatens to detonate a bomb. Kusuda escapes by car, and is pursued by Akai and Conan. After realizing that Akai is after him, Kusuda commits suicide. Akai deduces that now that Kusuda's reports to the Organization will stop, the latter will know that Rena is in Haido's central hospital.

The Organization's counter-attack (Manga: 599-605; Anime: 498-503

The FBI holds a meeting and decides to move Kir now that the Organization knows she's in Haido Central Hospital. Akai suggests setting up a trap for the Organization, allowing them to get to Kir and then ambush them. Akai goes to the roof, alone, to think about the plan. Conan takes the opportunity to ask James Black about Akai's past. James reveals that Akai wants to avenge the death of his girlfriend, killed by the Organization. Akai infiltrated the Organization under the name of Dai Moroboshi, dating Akemi Miyano in order to get close to a high-ranking scientist, inform the FBI and perhaps learn the identity of the boss. Dai was given the code name "Rye" and was called in to work for Gin, but the FBI's plan to capture Gin fell through, so Akai's identity was discovered, and he was expelled from the Organization. James Black goes on to explain that the Organization wanted to get rid of Akemi too, but couldn't, because his sister was too important to them. The Organization came up with a plan to make Akemi pull off a billion-yen heist, giving them an excuse to kill her when she ran out. Contrary to the Organization's belief, Akemi succeeded, but was killed by Gin without consideration. Akai kept Akemi's last message, asking if he would date her if she left the Organization. Then there's a P.S., the contents of which have yet to be revealed.

Conan and Akai meet on the roof and exchange plans. Their first move is to secure Kir's cooperation. Akai and Conan trick the FBI officers guarding Kir's room into giving up their parents, thus providing Eisuke with the opportunity to "wake the sleeping princess". Because of Eisuke's provocation, about to kill her, Kir stops pretending to be in a coma. Conan and Akai enter the room and drag Eisuke out so they can try to convince Kir to return to the Organization. Akai and Conan answer Kir's questions about how they found out she was an FBI agent, then tell them a little about her history. Kir agrees to take part in their plan to trap the Organization, and promises to provide information to the FBI. Akai calls André Camel to help with their secret plan, because to carry it out, they need to fool the FBI too, who don't yet know that Kir is an FBI agent.

Shuichi Akai - Detective Conan Wiki

The FBI's plan is to drive off 3 vans, one of which contains Rena, and then deceive the Organization into believing that Kir has left, while Camel actually drives her back to the hospital. At the same time, the Organization launches its counter-attack: they cause 3 accidents designed to flood the hospital with patients, then send them gifts containing small bombs. Akai suspects that they may be trying to kill Kir by causing the hospital to collapse when the bombs explode. Akai and the FBI recover the bombs from the innocent patients, but are surprised when they see Rena Mizunashi on TV, speaking from her hospital room. Akai and Conan realize that the bombs, which the FBI agents kept on them after defusing them, have trackers, but they're not quick enough to stop the rest of the FBI agents from heading for Kir's room.

Akai tells the other FBI agents the real plan

With the location of Kir's room discovered, the FBI immediately launches the plan with the 3 vans. Akai, in his Chevrolet, follows one of the vans for some distance, but is eventually discovered by Vermouth, whose mission, given by Akai, was to keep an eye on him. Gin correctly deduces which van Kir is in and recaptures her, just as Conan and Akai had planned. The FBI are initially very disappointed, but Akai then explains his true plan. Gin, however, is suspicious, being surprised that Akai didn't interfere more strongly when the Organization recaptured Kir. He suspects he has another plan.

Akai's death (Manga: 605-609; Anime: 501-504)

Akai has a bad feeling

Gin is suspicious of the FBI's ineffective plan and Akai's lack of resistance. Gin thinks Akai is hiding something and this doubt is relayed to the boss, who plans a test of Kir's loyalty. Meanwhile, André Camel becomes a suspect in a murder case. Akai is in a sense amused by this situation, while Jodie decides to go and see Camel to get him out of it. As Jodie leaves, Akai holds her back for a few moments to tell her that he has a bad feeling about the day, and that she needs to be careful. Jodie remarks that it's Friday the 13th.

Gin threatens Kir into calling Akai.

The Organization takes advantage of the distraction caused by the André Camel murder case, and Gin meets with Kir and passes on the boss's ultimatum: Kir must kill Akai in order to regain the Organization's trust. Gin explains to Kir that she must call Akai under the pretext of wanting to flee the country, as the Organization has been putting pressure on her since she was caught by the FBI. Akai will fall into the trap if she promises him information, and they can meet, alone, so that Kir kills Akai while wearing a camera and microphone. Gin will be able to observe the scene from a distance. With Gin's revolver behind his back, Kir calls Akai.

Jodie finally joins Camel, and their discussion turns to Camel's mistake, which caused Akai's expulsion from the Organization two years earlier. Camel explains that Akai had just been promoted within the Organization, and that the FBI had planned to capture Gin during a meeting with Akai. The FBI hid in the warehouse, waiting for Gin, but instead, an old homemaker entered and sat down. Akai ignored him, but Camel came out of hiding to tell the old man to leave. The old man was actually a member of the Organization, and Gin never showed up. This event created a chain reaction, leading to the death of Akai's girlfriend, Akemi Miyano, almost 2 years later. Camel, feeling responsible, felt obliged to take on the role of driver in Akai and Conan's plan.

James passes the phone to Akai

Meanwhile, Akai, sitting in his truck, recalls some of his last moments with Akemi. When he had revealed to her that he was in fact an FBI agent, she had already seemed to know, leading Akai to ask why she hadn't walked away from him. Akemi simply replied, with tears in her eyes: "Can't you tell without asking?". Akai is brought back to reality by James Black, who signals that his phone is ringing. Kir, on the other side of the phone, repeats what Gin told him to say, and asks him to meet her alone. James thinks the meeting is a trap, and that Akai shouldn't go. Akai says, assured, that he trusts his sixth sense and Rena to be able to pull through. James starts to call Jodie, but Akai, confident, stops him and asks him to trust him. The meeting is scheduled for 7.00 p.m., at the 7th left-hand bend in the Raiha passage.

Akai confronts Kir

Akai arrives at the meeting point, where Kir is waiting on the other side of the road. She shoots him in the lung, while Gin and Vodka watch from the other side of the gorge through the camera Kir is wearing. Blood pours from his mouth, Akai turns, and sees the Porsche. Kir tells Gin that Akai will soon die from the lung wound, but Gin orders him to shoot him in the head. As Kir approaches, Akai seems to calmly accept what is happening to him. He remarks that he didn't think she'd go that far, and Kir nods. She shoots Akai in the head, and he collapses on the front seats of his truck. Just then, the police, on their way to the scene of an accident, begin to approach, and Gin orders Kir to place a bomb to detonate Akai's body and truck. Kir sets the bomb and drives off. It explodes as the police pass by. The explosion and ensuing fire destroys most of the body, except for the right hand, allowing us to recover fingerprints.

Jodie and Camel leave the scene and return to the hospital. James announces that Kir has arranged a meeting with Akai, alone, while the news starts talking about a truck that exploded with a body inside, and whose right hand remained intact. Jodie wonders if it's Akai, and takes Conan's phone, which Akai touched earlier with his right hand, to the police. The fingerprints match, Jodie breaks the news to James, then breaks down crying. James remarks that they can't blame Rena Mizunashi, who had warned them that her mission for the CIA remained the most important.He sadly comments that, with Akai, they had managed to make progress in their investigation, having an informant inside the Organization, but that his death was too great a price to pay.

Scarlet Showdown (Manga: 896)


A new identity? (proven to be correct in file 898)

Subaru opens an eye that looks like Akai's

After faking his death, Akai created a new identity with the help of Yukiko Kudo. It could be that it was Subaru Okiya who swore to protect Haibara from the Organization and the Bourbon threat, in keeping with Akai's promise to Akemi. Subaru also helps Conan with several cases, and seems to keep a close eye on his colleagues in the Organization.

In film 18, The Dimensional Sniper, soldier Hunter explains to his pupil that only the Silver Bullet sniper can shoot from the second-highest building in the district. This soldier is referring to Akai. During the confrontation, Subaru fires from this building to disarm the student. And at the end of the mission, he speaks with James Black, where his voice changes to normal.

This theory, that Akai faked his death and is now hiding under the identity of Subaru Okiya, also seems to be proven by the end of the Mystery Train arc (Anime: 701-704), where we see Subaru open an eye, which appears to be the same as Akai's.

Moreover, we can see in manga chapters 622 to 624 (anime 509 to 510) that Subaru Okiya is called "the Red Man" in the diary of Kaito Suigiura (Conan's classmate). In Japanese, red is "akai"...

Subaru Okiya

After Akai faked his death, he developed a disguised persona with the help of Yukiko Kudo . As Subaru Okiya , he sought to protect Haibara from the Black Organization and the new Bourbon threat in accordance with the promise he had made to Akemi. He also helped Conan with various cases and kept an eye on his FBI comrades.


Okiya is generally shown to be calm and reserved, and often seems unflappable in the face of normally stressful situations, such as when Ran attacked him while he was brushing his teeth, thinking he was a burglar, or when a murderer took Ayumi hostage. He often acts friendly and modest: he smiles, rubbing the back of his neck when someone compliments him or says something about him. He loves to cook and is ready to help with many tasks. He doesn't mind interacting with the Junior Detectives; he's always polite to them, and listens to their theories during business. He is often shown drinking Bourbon.

Okiya becomes more serious when working on a case, and loves to reveal the truth to others (a bit like Conan ). Sometimes he speaks mysteriously, leaving the meaning and intentions of his words to the interpretation of the recipient. Okiya has another, more threatening side, when he goes on the offensive, or when he concentrates intensely on something. In this state of mind, Okiya deceives Haibara's sense to spot members of the Organization.

detective conan

Skills and attributes

Organization aura


Okiya emits what Haibara describes as the aura of the Organization of Men in Black, when he is intensely focused on a person, or when acting against an aggressor. Haibara only gets this feeling from him temporarily.

Hand-to-hand combat

Okiya shows he's equally adept at hand-to-hand combat when he knocks the knife out of a culprit holding Ayumi hostage, while freeing her from the culprit in the same movement. He also easily knocked out a kidnapper.

Okiya also possesses great physical stamina. On their first encounter, Ran mistook Okiya for a burglar and hit him directly in the jaw, but unlike his other "victims", Subaru wasn't knocked out instantly.


Okiya managed to hack into Kogoro's computer to see what business had been posted on his site. Later, he hacked into Haibara's phone and was able to see the message Vermouth had sent her.


Okiya is a good cook, although he describes his own culinary skills modestly. He often uses cooking as an excuse to go to Agasa's house, or to get involved in affairs with Haibara , Conan and the Junior Detectives. Mutton, soup and boeuf bourguignon seem to be his specialties.

Red, white and yellow arson (Manga: 622-624 , Anime: 509 - 510 )

After school, Conan receives a phone call from Jodie who tells him that the Black organization has activated a new member named Bourbon . Meanwhile, the Detective Boys receive a request from classmate Kaito Suigiura to investigate the actions of a strange man in his father's apartment building, which is close to Shinichi and Agasa's home . The next day, the Detective Boys find that the apartment has been set on fire. Subaru Okiya appeared for the first time as one of the suspects in this arson case. When Inspector Yuminaga introduces the detectives to the suspects, Okiya gives Ai Haibarales the thrill she only gets from those who have been in the Black Organization, even though she doesn't know who is responsible at the time, and the feeling of pressure unexpectedly disappears.

The revelation that Kaito Suigiura's diary describes a suspicious "yellow" tenant who had quarreled with the landlord the night the apartment was set on fire leads the police to question the three suspects about their alibis at the time of the arson, as well as their preferred color . Subaru Okiya's alibi was that he was driving alone that night on the verdant Teimuzu River to clear his head after submitting a paper to his teacher. Although he loves the greenery of plants, Okiya said his favorite is black, "because it covers things inside me that I don't want to know about", although he hates color for the same reason.

Conan and Subaru Okiya seem to agree when Okiya acknowledges that Conan quotes a line from Sir AC Doyle's "The Adventure of the Copper Beech Trees". After Conan solves the case, Okiya asks to meet Professor Agasa. After introducing himself, Okiya asks Professor Agasa if he could stay at his house until he finds somewhere else to live, offering to help Agasa with his research in his spare time. Agasa agrees, as long as Haibara does too, but Haibara firmly refuses. Conan chimes in by offering Shinichi's house, saying that Shinichi has suddenly disappeared and Conan will later tell Shinichi that Okiya has moved in. Conan overcomes Haibara's concerns that the Org might find out from Okiya that Shinichi is still alive by simply saying, "A Holmes fan can't be a bad person! "

Paper plane case (Manga: 638-640 , Anime: 510 - 511 )

Ran and Sonoko visit Shinichi's house to clean without knowing that Okiya lives there, and they confront him thinking he's a thief. Okiya can't explain fast enough and ends up on the receiving end of Ran's karate kick. Conan calls Ran to explain that Okiya lived in the house after the fire and warns her not to talk about Shinichi in front of him. After the two girls apologize, Okiya correctly deduces that they had gone to "Welcome Burger" earlier.

During the detectives' confrontation, Okiya overhears Sonoko talking about Shinichi's deductions and demands that Shinichi should also be the owner of the house. Ran, thinking of Conan's warning not to tell Okiya about Shinichi, interrupts Sonoko to tell her that they're consulting a "Kinichi" and that the owner Shinichi has no special deductive abilities. Okiya easily sees through the lie and reveals that he has looked around the house but found no personal identifiers.

" revealing that he knows of Detective Boys' many previous successes. Indeed, with such a hint from Mitsuhiko and Haibara, Conan and Okiya simultaneously realize who the culprit is. After taking turns explaining the case, the culprit pulled out a knife and grabbed Ayumi Yoshidaen hostage. Conan had no gadgets to help him. At that moment, Haibara felt a threatening aura from Okiya, and he slowly approached the criminal, saying he couldn't escape and even if he did, could he bear the pressure and loneliness of hiding in fear that someone would discover his identity? The provoked criminal removed the knife from Ayumi's neck and rushed at Okiya. In an effortless move, Okiya overturned the criminal's knife and took Ayumi from his grasp. Despite his rescue, the malevolent pressure Okiya emitted and his words left a strong impression on Haibara, who is certain that he is one of the members of the Black Organization.

Relationship analysis

Family and friends

Akemi Miyano

Shuichi Akai and Akemi Miyano were together while he was infiltrating the Organization. Akai's original mission was to date Akemi Miyano in order to meet her sister, Shiho Miyano , a more senior member of the Organization. Akai used Shiho's influence to move up the Organization's hierarchy, gaining the trust of the highest-ranking agents and eventually capturing and interrogating one of them. James Black explained that, although their relationship began as a stepping stone to the Organization, Akai actually fell in love with Akemi. Because of this, he had to break up with Jodie Starling.

Soon afterwards, Akemi became suspicious of Akai, thinking he wasn't really who he said he was. After his expulsion from the Organization, he confirmed that he was an FBI agent. To Akai's surprise, Akemi didn't seem surprised, so Akai asked her why she'd never said anything about his suspicions that she was being used by him. To which Akemi replied that it was because she loved him. Initially, the Organization could do nothing about Akemi, because they needed the loyalty of her sister, Shiho Miyano, but 2 years later, they decided that the risk of her coming into contact with Akai was too great. To get rid of her easily, they made a kind of contract with her: if she succeeded in robbing a bank, which she was supposed to fail at, she and her sister would be free to leave the Organization. But the Organization had no intention of leaving her alive, and created this situation so that they could kill her on the pretext that she had failed. Shortly before the day of the robbery, Akemi sent Akai a message, asking if he would be her real boyfriend when she was finally released from the Organization. After the successful robbery, Akemi was killed by Gin, and it's not known what (or if) Akai replied to her message. Akai carefully stores this message in his telephone. It also contains a PS, the contents of which have yet to be revealed.

How Akemi and Akai met in the manga is not known, but in the anime, Shuichi Akai met Akemi by an "intentional accident". She accidentally hit him with her car when Akai deliberately crossed the street in front of her so that her car ran him over. A concerned Akemi called for help, and stayed by his bedside until he recovered. When he woke up, he wasn't angry and asked her his name, while for his part, he gave her his false name: Dai Moroboshi. However, this element isn't canon, and isn't part of the manga.

Jodie Starling
Jodie and Akai

While Jodie and Akai's relationship appeared to be that of mere colleagues, it was later revealed that Jodie and Akai dated 5 before the current events. However, after Akai infiltrated the Organization under the alias of Dai Moroboshi, he began dating Akemi Miyano with the aim of using her to gather information about the Organization. However, Akai eventually fell in love with Akemi, leading him to break up with Jodie . Despite the break-up, Jodie still has strong feelings for Akai, which have not diminished with his supposed death.

James Black is the boss of the FBI agents in Japan, and therefore also of Akai.

André Camel
André Camel worked with Akai when he was undercover in the Organization, and again since the confrontation of Red and Black.

Ai Haibara
When Haibara first met Akai, she thought he was a member of the Organization. Akai seems to know Haibara's identity. Haibara knows him as Dai Moroboshi, her sister's boyfriend, who betrayed the Organization. Haibara should know that Dai was a spy and FBI agent, having heard the exchange between Bourbon and Kaito Kid (during the mystery train) over the microphone, but she doesn't know that his real name is Shuichi Akai.

Conan Edogawa

Conan and Akai seem to be capable of the same reasoning. In the short time they've worked together, Conan has earned Akai's respect for his deduction and intelligence.

The Men in Black Organization

Gin and Akai are rivals and hate each other. It's implied that they didn't get along even before Akai's cover as an FBI agent was exposed. Akai refers to Gin as "Koibito", which ironically means "lover" but is also spelt to mean "old enemy". Gin killed Akai's girlfriend, Akemi, so Akai sees Gin as his sworn enemy.

Shuichi Akai and Bourbon, aka Touru Amuro, are enemies. Bourbon is said to hate Akai more than Gin hates him. Bourbon believes he is the only one capable of killing Akai, and refused to believe that Akai was dead. Akai's feelings towards Bourbon are unknown, but while they are surely mutual, they are not as extreme on Akai's side. The reason for their rivalry is, according to File 897, a dispute over a member of the Organization who died, apparently through Akai's fault, when Amuro was already in the Organization.

Origin of the name

Akai's name comes from Mobile Suit Gundam character Char Aznable, whose nickname is "Red Comet" (Akai in Japanese), and Char's voice is that of actor Shuichi Ikeda (who is also Akai's). What's more, his alias, Dai Moroboshi, comes from Char's real name, Casval Rem Deikun (which sounds like Dai-kun in Japanese). Moroboshi also means filler star, another possible allusion to Red Comet.
