    Peacemaker Kuragane’s ED’s song was called “Hey Jimmy”…I think it was at least. But that show has nothing to do with Adult Swim. And it kinda sucked.

    And no, I don’t know why I thought of that.

    Anyway, Conan’s back so let’s fire up all the armchair detectives.

    GO!

    A preview, OK? :D

    I'll just repeat what I've written before:

    There's a reason why this series shan't be shown where kids could watch it, and we'll soon find out tonight. ;)

    Also, for those who dislike the Jr Detectives League, especially Amy, you should enjoy this ride. :D

    I was worried that they WOULD show it and then cut to a commercial break to make ASA the same as the rest of general CN :sweat:

    Yeah, so did mine. Darn Comcast! At least I got to see the Stunning Conclusion!

    well, it ended up being a pretty light episode. It's nice to see that Conan is fallible (luckily not when it counts).

    The next episode looks pretty cool, and Rachel seems to have a pretty strong part. That, and
    is quite a hint.

    Hmm a Junior Detectives League episode that I found enjoyable, who'd of thought. I discovered the truth about the *killlers* near the end though. Would have been better if those were real killers with a real body though.

    I give it a B+.

    What was wrong with that man in the park? Conan just sat on his lap and he didn't say anything. Then he got his paper taken away. What was wrong with that guy?

    BTW Sampo's gotta get a shot of Amy holding the head. I couldn't stop laughing from the expression on her face.

    Ha ha,that was definetly a good one tonight. I somehow thought that those 2 bad guys were actually good guys. Although it looks like Conan is finally "wrong" and is made to look like an idiot for the first time. That had to be the best part of it. One more thing though, did he really have to go and do that kick thing again? I dunno what I see more, Conan doing the kick thing or Conan knocking out Richard with the stun gun. Nice skateboard action though.

    10/10 for me. Much Much Much better Junior detective episode than that crappy treasure map one. And someone please get a new VA for George,that voice is killing me.

    VERY big, unexpected, and refreshing plot twist in the end. Caught me totally off-guard.

    Is it just me, or it did that Rachael/Ran and Richard/Kogoro seem kinda...City Hunter-ish? I swear, it was so similar to CH's infamously tired, every-episode "comedy" routine? Sure, it was nowhere near as extreme as City Hunter, but it was just enough for me.

    Oh, and, on a side note: Richard/Kogoro's original VA= Kamiya Akira, who also =Saeba Ryo. Hmmmmm...

    I didn't like the twist on the ending, I was really looking forward to seeing how Conan, Geroge, & Mitch were going to take down the kidnappers/murderers. Especially with so much tension being built up.

    Tomorrow's looks really good, as Rachel gets personal and confrontational. And the return of the hint! I gotta say, $100 million is kind of a silly hint...

    Woo! We got words to the theme song, though they sounded incredibly stupid. "A new century is born, 100 years after the old one" I think was how it went.

    Good show tonight. Some funny bits with Conan and the kids. I was a bit freaked out at first with the whole child murderer plot, but it did create that sense of urgency that keep me drawn in for the duration of the ep. A silly twist at the end was well, surprising to say the least, but it gave me a few chuckles (My God, George can't act). Also, it was an episode too late, but Richard gets hit by Rachel hitting on an unsuspecting female (karma works on Case Closed).:D

    Here I thought this episode tested the limits of Adult Swim. Should have known it was a fake head with the TV PG rating.


    Some random question, Conan has been going on for over 350 episodes in Japan, right? So even if we say one episode = one day almost a year has past in the show. So to my question, does Conan ever grow taller or does anyone ever wonder when his birthday is?

    Actually, the clue is more likely

    Anyway, today's episode introduces two new gadgets for Conan (one that's a possible way to get some help/clues from the Jr. Detective League without being mistaken for a nuance a la episode 5, another as a way to chase bad guys and
    not to mention that it shows that even Conan makes mistakes.

    BTW, Lostrune, do you have any idea of what the kanji said:
    1. on the sign that Mitch was wearing at the beginning of the episode
    2. when the boys have that "Ugh!" expression when Amy was talking on the transmitter.
