Joker and Kyotaro catching the criminals

Kyotaro first appeared in chapter 50 in the manga. In this chapter, Joker was stealing the sheet music for "The Moonlight Suit". When Joker entered the mansion through the section that looked like it had the least amount of security, Joker was surprised to see the entire room was filled with police officers. Kyotaro explains that he made the security in the room look lax on purpose and Joker along with Hachi, had to run away from the scene temporarily. At the same time, Kyotaro was tasked with finding out the "riddle of the Otowa Family Inheritance". Which was finding the musical instrument that opened the safe containing "The Moonlight Suit". Joker comes back disguised as a police officer and begins investigating with Kyotaro. With the subtle hit Kyotaro had given him, Joker figured out the code and obtained the treasure. However, the supposed inheritors turned out to be fakes and had previously captured Hachi. Using excellent team work, they managed to tie up the culprits with piano wire. Joker then escapes with the sheet music and vows to shock and amaze Kyotaro next time.
