The vocalist and lyricist, Sakai Izumi died in 2007 There are rumors searching for a replacement, but that is a large gap to fill really. Which is why I suggest resurrection. Anyone happen to know the location of the Resurrection Stone from Harry Potter? We could make use of it, and figure a way to sustain her!
No no! Let us perfect the incomplete detective, so that we may raise the dead against the sea of time!
Ran with a dress on the top of the rock ? (How did she even get up there in the first place ?)
At least there is no trace of Kaitou Kid.
I think Ran atop the spire was supposed to evoke the whole 'princess trapped in a tower by the forces of evil' thing, so I'm guessing that the evil forces that separated Ran and Conan in the beginning were the ones who put her up there.
I loved this opening.
...Except when Ran fell off the pointy rock tower thing and Conan saved her. >_>
CONAN. STOP. SAVING. RAN. PLEASE.
It bothers me as well, that Ran's role in this opening was damsel in distress, because it really undermines Ran's true character. More often than not in canon, Conan is the one who is the damsel in distress, and Ran needs to come to his rescue.
That being said though, I liked the intimacy between Ran and Conan in this opening. The two of them holding hands, Ran falling gently into his arms, them staring lovingly at one another... X3
