Is this anime ever going to end?
the 20th anniversary movie is looking good.
No. it will continue until the author dies. Hell, it may continue even after.
Alright guys, lets get serious for a second here.
Who is Rum?
> Some sequence of brush strokes, from some sequence of words, from some sequence of panels will spell out BO leader's name in a humorous and unexpected fashion.
I-is this what hell is supposed to feel like?
Aoyama wouldn't make the main antagonist of his manga a one off character that appeared once in a random murder case and then never appeared again.
Its an established character.
Author also said it wasn't Agasa. Since the author also said he didn't expect the manga to last more than three months and Sonoko's dad didn't show up until Chapter 156, my money is the Father of the Girl from that kidnapping case at the very start of the series.
So when Gin almost exploded BO's daughter and then promptly attempted to oxygenate her brain, they just kicked back a brew and laughed over it, right?
Yeah, that doesn't fly.
>Author also said it wasn't Agasa
See I don't believe him on this because all the evidence points to Agasa. He's basically trying to deflect. There's too many inconsistencies regarding Agasa's character.
Movies aren't canon.
Or Agasa wants the drug because he's old and doesn't have that long to live. And he's keeping Conan and Haibara around to make sure there's no long term side affects.
That was a movie, so it's canon is questionable at best
Also, they don't know who that was, just that they were shooting at someone who as Not-Sherry.
Unless you're talking about an event I didn't read yet.
But Vermouth has (apparently) already tested out the drug, remember she was posing as her mother for several years?
Agasa being the BO leader doesn't make any sense, especially since Conan has been leaking their info a bit more than he should ever like. Even if he's running a test on the youth-poison, is it worth the risk, when they could just take him to a lab and run it there? It's not like that's something they wouldn't do.
So it's Christmas time in Conan land once again.
Has anyone counted how many times the holidays have happened in the manga?
>Aoyama wouldn't make the main antagonist of his manga a one off character that appeared once in a random murder case and then never appeared again.
Sonoko's father appearances: 1
But he's related to a major character.
For one, at the beginning of the series he's shown to be a bumbling inventor that can't seem to invent anything that works. However, after Shinichi is shrunk he miraculously starts making tons of amazing inventions that work exactly as intended.
He's also rich but doesn't seem to have a job.
He's rich because he sells of his shit to ISIS or whatever terrorist group is hot shit at the time
If the inventions blow up they'll just think it was suicide bombing and no one will give him shit about it
We see only one of his inventions explode and then Shinichi (a confirmed asshole at times) says that his inventions never work. I think he was just being mean.
Also Agasa made Kaito kid's gadgets
>Gosho is also the author of Yaiba
Didn't expect that
I remember watching 82 episodes and was really into it. I thought about looking how many more episodes were left because I wanted to see how the story ends.
>Found out there were hundreds and hundreds of episodes left.
I haven't watched it since.
80'ish was the sweet point for me as well. That's when the super archive torrent broke apart and skipped like dozens of episodes at a time. This was waaaay back when so I dunno how it has held up since, but I suspect the original seed is long dead.
I love how he does those all-cast stills. The old episodes with several characters, those were the best.
I just realized that if you rarely actually see the villain in these things as the main focal point.
I'm a bit impressed on how he adapted mysteries now that cellphones are around
If the focal guy is the criminal then you can guess it right every time. If the criminal is one of the others you still have to toss it up arround two or three more. Granted, being the focus then becomes a big "Not this Guy" sign over the character.
I'm almost convinced that the real reason the anime hasn't ended and has so many filler episodes is so they can provide job security to voice actors who shouldn't be relevant anymore.
I don't think the main cast is working on anything new anymore. I do know that some of them are voicing characters for other long-running series, which I imagine are running that long for the same reasons.
Why is Ran such a shitty character?
>is a blackbelt karate champion
>has engaged in hand-to-hand combat with trained assassins
>is the daughter of a detective who frequently investigates murder cases
>often follows her father along on investigations
>screams like a little girl when she sees a dead body
Because the moment the characters have to develop the status-quo is threatened and the narrative will have to move forward. When the narrative moves forward it gets closer to the end of the arc and when that happens the author will have to consider retiring.
This show was way better
theres was a latinamerican spanish dub for this one, i have been looking for it for ages, and never found it
Remember when Ran or the kids would scream in terror when they discovered a body.
Even Conan used to react differently than nowadays, like life matters, now it's usually straight to the riddle solving, no big deal.
They also used to be a lot more gruesome/violent.
Remember when Conan first goes out to catch this random criminal, and he beats hits him with the bat and then is about to finish him off in the anime?
In the manga, this sequence is like half a goddamn chapter. I'm not joking, there's like 10 panels dedicated to this guy beating the shit out of Conan with a bat.
When the Detective Boys go out, you know they're in for some big dumb adventure. Never again will there be some creepy drug selling librarian who nearly misses the chance to choke Ayumi to death with a wire.
Not to say that I want to see blood and guts, just that it's kind of hard to feel like there's any actual danger anymore.
>Not to say that I want to see blood and guts, just that it's kind of hard to feel like there's any actual danger anymore.
I understand exactly what you're saying, and couldn't agree more. It's not that we want pornographic violence, it's just that murder is ugly by nature, and by sugar coating it, it feels being trivialized. Remember how on very early episodes Conan values life and speaks about its worth, getting angry at being unable to prevent the shit that happens.
I guess it's not all the author's fault that the blood got replaced by oil and the sweet light tone of the new episodes while people are dying for our entertainment, but the TV execs and producers changed the light of the show to something not for kids but almost childish.
I remember on that movie about Miyazaki making The Wind Rises how one producer/his friend tells him about how the TV stations and the government order them how there're topics they cannot include in their works, and how there are more and more restrictions about what they can explore in the medium.
>the librarian case
That scene where the elevator slowly rises and it transitions from the dead body to him standing behind Conan has to be one of the creepiest shots in the show.
It's good for downloading episodes that aren't seeded or have no torrent available. That's the only thing I use it for and it's worked really well in letting me fill in missing episodes.
the hero we deserve.
how come even the side characters are awesome in this series?
Because there is literally no plot progression. Most episodes focus on the characters and can give them some development without breaking the canon.
It's basically filler done right
