Hello people. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. It’s a quick review of the TV movie Detective Conan Episode ‘ONE’.


Review: Detective Conan Episode ‘ONE’

About the Show

Detective Conan, “Case Closed” as its English title, is a popular Japanese TV animation based on manga by Gosho Aoyama. Its serialization of manga began in 1994 and anime started in 1996. As part of its 20th anniversary, this special program ‘ONE’ was broadcast in Japan last December 9, 2016.

Basically, it is a half-remake of the original first episode. The original began with the scene where Shinichi Kudo (he turns into Conan) closing a murder case.  After a day he gets in trouble at a theme park. This TV movie shows untold story of how this first case started (it still leaves some conflicts but don’t mind. Just enjoy it).



It came along with previous opening songs in some scenes.

As soon as this opening song began, it brought me back to 20 years ago! It was the first opening song.

Another popular opening song from the 2000s’ was featured in another scene as well. Her songs sound very suitable with this show.



I enjoyed this half-remake TV movie. Although I haven’t seen this show for years actually, it has made feel nostalgic. I hope the series will end well though. There seems to be mysteries left still. Please don’t go another 20 years…(-_-)

See you around!

Super Easy Rice Cooker Recipe: Roast Beef

Hello people. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Christmas is right on the corner. Do you have ideas already what food to prepare? I have a suggestion for your Christmas dinner, that is, ‘roast’ beef’! I used a rice cooker to cook it instead of an oven. So, you could try it easily.


Super Easy Rice Cooker Recipes: Roast Beef


Roast beef

500 grams of beef (eye of round roast)
some salt & pepper



1 1/2 tsp of butter
1/2 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of chiken soup powder
4 tbsp of water



You need a thermometer to check temperature.


1. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the beef, scrub, and tenderize by fork.
2. Grill beef (only the surface) for a few minutes on both sides.
3. Get the meat out, cover with saran wrap, and put into a ziplock (let all air out).
4. Pour plenty of hot water (about 59 °C/138.2 °F) in the rice cooker, and press KEEP WARM button.
5. Place the meat (packed in ziplock) in the rice cooker, close the cover and leave it for 60 minutes.

Make sure the temparature stays above 54 °C/129.2 °F  (the rice cooker will do but just in case, check every 10-15 minutes for a few times).


Preparing the Sauce

Transfer the juice of the meat (from the ziplock) into the pan. Add all the sauce ingredients  and heat up for a bit. And, it’s done.

Pour it over the sliced roast beef. Tada!




How do you find it? Well, it isn’t only for Christmas. It would be very satisfying for a night that you crave for something meaty. Please try it and let me know how it goes.

See you around!
