Genji Kojima (小嶋 元次 ,Kojima Genji) is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan. He is the father of Genta Kojima. For most of the series he was an unseen character, only mentioned by Genta from time to time. However, he finally made his debut in the Kojima Contest Case.

Background Edit

Genji Kojima is first met by Conan and the other Detective Boys during a "Super Kojima" contest, which was actually a front for the show's sponsor, an eccentric wealthy man named Gonsaku Kojima, to find the thief of a highly-priced painting who had also murdered his beloved dog. However, the plan turned into a homocide case when the suspect revealed killed the sponsor - and Genta's father, as one of the three finalists, became one of the suspects in the case. Conan, however, managed to prove Genji's innocence and reveal the identity of the real culprit, who promptly denied the confession he had just made. But then Genji tripped him up and confronted him so agressively that the delinquent meekly admitted his guilt and was subsequently arrested.

Personality Edit

Genji Kojima prides himself of being a true edokko ("child of Tokyo"): He has a strong sense of justice, is confrontational, loves sushi and speaks with a distinct, old-fashioned dialect. He can be harsh and demanding, but he is actually very kind and caring. Though he appears strongwilled, he - like his son - may actually live under the thumb of his rather formidable wife.
