    The internet has many predatory people on it, and occasionally they try to infiltrate sites like this one because there are many young people and women. They try to gain trust and then get personal information so they can stalk and harass offsite and in private places us moderators can not see. Do not give out personal information, even to close internet friends, because personal information on the internet is always on a strictly need to know basis. Furthermore, if you have been harassed or asked questions that are a little too personal or make you feel uncomfortable, please tell the moderators the details quickly so we can take prompt action. We want to help you and stop these people, don't let it get worse because you feel uncertain if it is bad enough. Chances are they are also targeting others besides you. Please help make this site a friendly and safe place for everyone by staying vigilant, and thank you for watching out for other's wellbeing.

    Another random art thread! Here's a picture of Conan and Shinichi I drew with DeviantART muro a while ago: There's a "Watch Redraw" option on the right side of the page if you want to watch the drawing process. I also haven't added a background on it since I've been getting lazy. If any of you guys have an idea for a background that I really like, I might use it once I get the opportunity. I'm pretty open to suggestions at the moment. I might continue adding stuff on here later, but school does get in the way of things, so probably not often. TABLE OF CONTENTS: 1. Conan and Shinichi 2. Detective Conan banner | Version 2 3. Detective Conan Christmas wallpaper 4. More DC Christmas stuff 5. DC Chibis 6. >> next art post >>

    (image: 米花学园) As revealed in Gosho Aoyama's latest letter in the manga, he had to undergo some sort of surgery. Even though the surgery was successful, he still has to stay in the hospital till summer. Until then, Detective Conan manga series will be released at an irregular pace. After Gosho can leave the hospital, the manga will probably be updated normally again. Stay well, sensei! D:

    http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/10/10/crunchyroll-adds-case-closed-to-anime-simulcasts Simulcast = airs a subbed episode an hour or so after Japan airs it. This is good news for the English popularity of Detective Conan and will hopefully bring in many new fans. Now that official subbers have finally appeared, I have heard rumors that the main fansub group has indicated they will not sub any of the episodes CR does in order to support the series.

    Hello! Here is my art thread where, obviously, I will post my drawings and such .... First I will tell you something about me: I notice tgat I draw better when "copying", rather than drawing from my mind or imagination. Second: I will post some of my old drawing that I deleted before. * bourbon:

    My take on translating some of the odder-sounding Q&As (from Chinese), lol. Q28: Any recommendations on how to relax yourself? A: K-Kancolle (laughs) Q30: How do you solve the cases in Detective Conan? A: By pretending you're Conan! (laughs) Q100: My friend says that the Boss is Shinichi! A: Please tell your friend, "Congratulations, you've got it wrong!" Q101: I'm dissatisfied with the way I'm living. How can I lead a happy life? A: Please don't accidentally become an 'educated idler.' (The kanji used here is probably 高等游民 koutou yuumin, who's educated/knowledgeable but doesn't have a job, and spends his life pursuing knowledge. If any of you watch jdramas, a Spring 2015 drama, Date ~Koi to wa Donna Mono Kashira~'s lead male is an educated idler.) Q102: Hi, Aoyama-sensei! My father named me Yuria because he likes the series Hokuto no Ken. I like Detective Conan, so when I have a child in the future, I want to name him Conan. But if I do so, I can't write it in kanji, so do I have to write it in katakana? By the way, I have kanji for my name. A: Feel free to do so according to your own interests ... (laughs) Q121: Which character was the hardest to design in terms of background and appearance? A: I spent a lot of time working on Sera-chan. Q122: Do you own any consoles? A: Yep. Q125: Which murder method is the one you like best so far? A: Recently, I think the blogger actress murder case in Volume 87 uses an interesting way to commit murder. Q132: Who do you like best in K-On? A: Yui, of course! Unrelated, but there's been discussion about what actually Q77 means despite it not seeming that important (but then again, Gosho loves his pairings). The raw was posted up in one of the baidu threads, and there was another discussion going on about just what exactly it refers to ... I think it's because the wording for it was rather vague. Including the translated Chek included above, I've read at least five different interpretations of it -- whether the person being silent is Akai or his ideal girlfriend, and similarly, whether the chatty person is Amuro himself or his ideal girlfriend. To sum it up, though, the idea is that neither Akemi nor Jodie fits the type of girl who is quiet and/or able to maintain her presence even without anything being said, so does Akai actually like ... Haibara?

    I've had a few users try to contact me directly through personal messages about spammers or simply post in a thread about them. This doesn't work very well and means it takes longer for me to realize there is a problem. The way the moderating system is set up, if you use the report option, all the moderators get a bright red warning with links to the thread and user that needs moderation and a description of why. If you message me individually, it looks like every other ordinary message. If you post about the spammers in a thread, I get no warning at all. So please, please, please, please use the report button in the lower right hand part of the post. Also, don't assume somebody else has already reported the problem correctly and wait for it to go away! In that last batch of 50 magic spams, I had absolutely no regular reports, just one person contacting by private message and a few wall posts. I didn't see those until much too late. Also, this advice goes for any sort of problem. Weird or suspicious posts? Use the reporting system. Want a mod to delete your accidental double post? Use the reporting system. It lets all the moderators know there is something that should be done all at once.

    Sorry for being late to the party! Interesting point regarding statuses from FB/Twitter. I guess it'll remove some noise indeed. I just disabled this feature for everybody besides Admin, Moderators and Donators. Let's see how it goes now.

    Here's an alternate link for the Chinese translation of SDB60+. I'll use the second one because it seems to be the source (the translation is the same anyway). There're some questions I don't quite understand but they're the more unimportant ones. Most are very trivial/useless questions so I won't go into detail. Notes: [TL note] = Note from the original Chinese translator [bD note] = My note Interview (Status: 71/71 - Completed) 1. I want to see Yukiko sing "いないいないばあ" to Conan! [TL note: 『いないいないばあっ!』is a famous NHK programme] A: You do? (laugh) 2. Why does Akai always wear cap? A: Because it's his trademark. 3. We haven't learned about Takagi's private life and past yet! Please tell me something. A. I'll draw that after some times. 4. From which volume does the scene showing Kazuha practicing at the Aikido Club come from? A: In that file with the charm (please see Vol. 66). 5. Are Chianti and Korn dating? A: No. 6. Is it problematic that Conan can usually hear private information and the like while wearing eavesdropping devices? A. Very problematic! (laugh) 7. Does Jodie pretend that she enjoys Japanese games? A: You can tell from her looks that she truly enjoy them. 8. Why did Chiba never tie a tie? A: Because he can't tie? (laugh) 9. When is Ran's birthday? When will you write about it? A: I really want to write it. 10. Please tell me Sonoko's birthday. A: I'll probably write about that in the future. 11. The characters use different first person pronouns like "オレ" (ore - katakana), "俺" (ore - kanji), "わたし" (watashi - hiragana), "私" (watashi - kanji). Is there any special meaning behind this? A: Because the hiragana usage of "watashi" is really cute. I learned to make high school students use "ore" from Adachi-sensei [TL note: Adachi Mitsuru] 12. Will there be any more shrunken victim of APTX4869? A: Ha ha ha... (laugh) 13. Why must APTX4869 be in the form of capsules, but not tablets or powder? A: Because "AKIRA" feels cool. [TL note: I don't know what he's talking about] [bD note: I don't get it either] 14. Does Kudo Shinichi's "Shinichi" come from the science fiction writer Hoshi Shinichi? A: (It actually does) Surprise?! (laugh) [bD note: Not sure about this one] 15. Why has the shop owner of Poirot never appeared before? A: How to say this... (laugh) 16. Will anyone on Conan's side die in the end? A: Maybe. Maybe not. Please wait in joy! That wouldn't be joyful, would it? (laugh) 17. How did Shinichi come across the Holmes novels? How old was he? A: He read them when he was still a child. 18. I want to see Shiho riding a Harley. Are you planning to draw something like that? A: I really want to. 19. I want to see Ran wearing uniform swimsuit. [bD note: Is that the term?] A: I want to see it too. (laugh) 20. Are Agasa's inventions increasing in number? A: They are, I'll introduce them when necessary. [bD note: Not sure about this one] 21. Will there be any development with Prof. Agasa's love story? A: That would be quite interesting. 22. If Sonoko marries Makoto, will he become a live-in son-in-law of the Suzuki family? A: How to say this... (laugh) 23. Is Okiya even going to the academy? Why does he always seem to have so much leisure at home? A: Ahahaha... (laugh) 24. If Haibara's mother is still alive, would she have accepted the FBI's WPP and went somewhere else to research APTX? A: Oh you're good (laugh). (No, [she] wouldn't) 25. I really like Haibara! Please tell me her bust size when she was Shiho! A: I'd like to know too. (laugh) 26. It is said that those with bad visual acuity will also have bad dynamic visual acuity. [bD note: Not sure about the terms] So Makoto, who could dodge bullets, has bad vision? Or is he wearing Date glasses? A: No. He's just that good. 27. Is Makoto's younger sister gonna appear? A: I want to introduce her... How should it be...? 28. I want to know the story when the Kudo couple began to fall in love with one another. When can I read it? A: There will be probably. 29. Doesn't Takagi have any childhood story? A: I'll probably draw that. 30. What were Heiji and Sonoko's records on [bD note: Not sure how to translate this, seems to be some kind of sport activity]? A: Heiji would be pretty good, but that's not the case with Sonoko! (laugh) 31. Will Yumi and Shuukichi reunite? A: I'm planning to draw about it in the near future. [bD note: He probably did with the recent Shogi case] 32. I extremely like Ran. I want to become someone like her, how can I do it? A: First make your hair look like a pointy horn... That's impossible right? (laugh) 33. How did Ran and Sonoko become close friends? A: I definitely want to write that story. 34. Will there be a story involving the police academy? A: I'll probably write it in the future. 35: The DB won't have any new member? I want new member(s). A: If there was it would be quite troublesome to draw. (laugh) 36. In the mermaid case, the name "Shiho Miyano" was shown among the guest list, then Conan thought to himself "She doesn't look like the type to pursue eternal life and youth." Was that some kind of foreshadowing? A: It was. 37. Was Date's accident related to the BO? A: No. 38. Is there a connection between BO and Tottori Prefecture? A: No. (big laugh) 39. Since when has the BO existed? A: Wasn't it a pretty long time ago? 40. When the showdown with the BO comes, just in case, will Sato die in the line of duty? A: Can't say. 41. When will we know the truth about Itakura's program? A: Had you understood it after reading, you'd already have figured it out at that time. [bD note: I'm not sure when did he mean by "that time"] 42. If you could become a Conan character in one day, who would you want to be, what would you do? A: I want to be Ran and go have a bath ♥ 43. Let me ask this straight, have you already come up with the ending for Conan? A: Of course!! 44. What's your opinion about Sato? A: I want to meet her in person. 45. Who is the Boss? A: It's... that one... That one!! 46. Do you sometimes wish to see yourself in the manga? A: I appeared in every volume's cover. Although I have to face some major crises every time. (sweating) 47. Which code was the hardest to create? A: The one with the Sun, the Moon, and the stars (Vol. 12). 48. Do you watch every TV episode of Conan? A: Of course!! 49. Have Ran found out about Conan's identity or not? A: How to say this... She will gradually. 50. Which is your most favorite character of Conan Doyle's? A: Holmes. 51. Should we call Yukiko-oneesan or obasan? A: If it was me I would call "oneesan". (uses shivering voice) 52. What would you do if you had a long time to rest? A: Travel! Also watch WC in Brazil!! 53. You come up with new materials when recover your mental strength, right? Also, when do you recover your mental strength? A: When I sleep! Also when I wake up from sleep after working, or have a doze after returning from the toilet. (laugh) 54. In which order do you come up with a character's appearance and personality? A: Personality then appearance. 55. Do you come up with the characters' clothes alone? A: I also took a look at my friends' clothes. 56. There are Conan side images at the back of the manga volumes. Is that a full series? A: Yes, it's a short story in about every 10 volumes. 57. What're your most favorite manga cover, side image, background portrait...? A: Vol 37 (Conan cosplaying Matsuda). 58.

A: Watch sports, TV dramas. And then "KanColle". 63. How many novels do you read in one year? A: [The number] is increasing by year. 64. When drawing a character, which part of the body is drawn first? A: The eyes. 65. Will you cheer for the Gainare Tottori? A: I'll do that in my heart! I wish they could play in the J. League Division 1. 66. When you draw the manga, what is your expression when you think of something new. A: It'd probably look like the character's expression. 67. How old was you when you resolved to become a mangaka? A: Around the third year in college. 68. Do you have any idol? A: Toda Erika, Hashimoto Ai. 69. When the series first started, have you ever expected that it would turn out this big (with the BO and FBI etc.)? A: No, not at all. (laugh) 70. If DC characters were real, who do you want to become good friends with? A: Ran. In the bathroom... again. (laugh) 71. What's your future dream? A: Do animation works for the anime, draw for the movies. Boss (Note: Not part of the interview above but presumably also comes from SDB60+) Inside the Org., there is a boss who is called "That person". This person hasn't appeared in front of Conan. Their name and gender are still mysteries. The only known information is "dialing the Boss' email address will create the sound of 'Nanatsu no Ko'". Okay so I need a second (and probably third) opinion with this one. Technically, the line's literal meaning (at least judging from the Chinese translation) is "hasn't appeared in front of Conan". However, I wonder if we can simply assume that there aren't any ambiguities behind it. Therefore, I'll copy the original text over here (this is hidden content that only registered users can see, but you can check the book if you've bought it): 組織には、「あの方」と呼ばれるボスが存在する事がわかっている。コナンの前に姿を現した事はなく、名前も性別も謎。ボスのメールアドレスを打つと『七つの子』の音階になる事だけは確実な情報だ。 Is there any chance what the publisher wanted to say is "the boss hasn't reveal their identity/true color in front of Conan", rather than "the boss is someone Conan has never met face-to-face", because the latter will rule out 98% of the cast. Also note that this is just a summary of the boss in the book, not what Gosho said directly.

    The context is that I'm having a debate with an IP related the the Boss of the Black Organization article, and I need to be sure I have my facts straight first. Argument that the boss's number is an email address (copied from talk page). Argument that the number is a phone number The best evidence about how the address is actually being used suggests that it is a phone number that is being used for texting. You can't dial an email with a 9 digit keypad to make the nanatsu no ko sound (no .s or @s). Nor do I think it is a coincidence that the length of the number is the exact length of a Japanese phone number (9 digits for a geographic number), and has no @s. Promotional offers in Japan related to Conan (I recall one for M13) had people dial the boss's phone number to hear a pre-recorded message - which suggests that it is a phone number not an email. Also keep in mind the cellphone arc took place way back in 2003/2004, which was pretty early in the smartphone tech cycle. Other mangas (forget which ones) use the convention # to replace phone numbers to make them unworkable. # is used because the pound sign is on a phone. I will add to my side at least as I think of new stuff and keep the other party's arguments updated.

    Combined list of translated questions from Conan Super Digest Book SDB 80+. Note there are a few that don't seem to be numbered correctly or snuck in from another book or something like that. Q1: Don't you think it would be interesting if Conan has a brother? A: Eh? Why a brother so suddenly? It would be interesting, but it would also be hard to draw. Sorry! Q2: Which horn is the hardest between a rhino horn and Ran's horn? A: What? Q3: Will there be a love story in the Gunma prefecture? A: What? You want to see one? Q4: What are the reasons for people to join the Black Organization? A: There are many reasons. Q5: Are Elena Miyano and Shuichi Akai's/Sera's mother sisters? A: Eh? Why's that? [Question 5 and 62 are related] Q6: Why did Akai-san decide to join the FBI? A: It will be explained in the future. Q7: Have you already thought about drawing a fight between Heiji and Kaito? A: Hm... Should I do it or not...? Q8: Will Conan be in Shinichi Kudo's body for the final showdown? A: Stay tuned. Q9: Will there really be more than 100 volumes? Thinking that I'm going to wait many years to read the end of the story makes me sad... A: I think I can do more than 100 volumes, there's still room for the story. Q10: The drawing of Conan and Shinichi sitting on the chair for the 20th anniversary of the manga is really cool. What was your inspiration for this drawing? A: A drawing I had already drawn before where Conan was sitting on a char, and I just added Shinichi. Q11: In volume 42, Conan receives a message where a "Ok" with a heart is written. Don't tell me that was Heiji?! A: It was him, sorry (laugh) Q12: I'm really amazed by something... How do you manage to draw a manga with so many sub-plots? A: Well... (laugh) Q13: What do you really take care of when you create a character? A: I don't want him to look like a character I've created in the past. Q14: I want to see a kiss between Conan and Ran in the manga! A: What?? Not Shinichi?! Q15: Why can't Conan remember where he has seen Sera? A: He's pretending (big laugh) Q16: What kind of feeling Conan has for Haibara? Is it trust? A: I think he has total trust in her. Q17: What's your favorite thing about Conan? A: The fact that it gives me money (laugh) Q18: I would like to visit the studios where Conan is animated, can you give me the address? A: Don't ask me that kind of things~ Q19: What happened to the 10 million yen given to help raise Conan? A: They're probably spending it on lots of things, I expect... Also, Ran-chan's looking after the money. Q20: Does Conan-kun like Fluke Fin [Engawa] Sushi? A: What, because his name is Edogawa? (laughs) Q21: How could someone become a friend of Conan's? A: By reading and buying (many) mangas! Q22: If everything goes on like this, could Conan not be able to regain his body again? A: Stay tuned (laugh) Q23: What would happen if Gin [Jin] fell down the stairs and twisted his ankle? A: Huh? That would hurt, wouldn't it? The pain would probably be really 'sharp' [Jiin]! (laughs) Q24: When did Gin and Vodka meet? A: Huh? When could it have been...? (laughs) Q25: Please reveal something about Gin's private life. A: I won't tell you (laugh) Q26: Why is Gin hair long and grey? A: Because it's cool! (laugh) Q27: Please give Gin more appearances. And let him pull off an assassination sometime too. A: He killed Pisco, you know... And Irish in the movie, too!! Q28: Any recommendations on how to relax yourself? A: K-Kancolle (laughs) Q29: You must have a great mind to think up so many cases!! What should I study to have a mind as great as yours? A: Oh, my mind's not that great. (laughs) Q30: How do you solve the cases in Detective Conan? A: By pretending you're Conan! (laughs) Q31: If Conan-kun's a primary school student and a freeloader, how come he has a nice mobile phone? Did he buy it himself? A: It was probably bought from him out of the 10 million yen they got... Must be nice to have all that. Q32: Lupin vs Kid!!! A: I want to see that too (laugh) Q33: If you had one of Agasa's inventions, what would you do with it? A: I would get to sleep my editor with the watch so I could sleep. Q34: Please write Amuro vs. Shuukichi! A: Eh...? As in shogi? Q35: Is Amuro-san popular with the girls in his job at Poirot? A: Of course he is! (laughs) Q36: Amuro went and sacrificed his own car (the RX-7) to save Conan, but being that crash should've wrecked it. Did he buy the car he drives after that secondhand? A: Maybe he bought it secondhand off a manga artist who hardly ever gets to drive his car, and repainted it. (laughs) Wait, that's me! Q37: What does Amuro like? A: Boxing. Q38: What Amuro blond when he was born? Is he half-blooded? A: Maybe (laugh) Q39: Is Amuro in couple with someone? A: He's single! Q40: There was a preview for 2015's movie at the end of 'The Dimensional Sniper', but I have no idea what it's going to be about from just a sunflower! What sort of film is it?! Or will I just have to wait until it's out in cinemas? A: You'll have to do that. (laughs) Q41: Why does the sister from outside the domain seem like she has a weak body? A: I wonder why, hehehe ... (laughs) Q42: Is there anything the perfect human Akai is bad at? (Q42 and Q69 are related.) A: He's tone deaf (laughs) [Later on in the thread, someone clarifies that the original says オンチ in both cases, which in that context can mean anything from being tone deaf, or completely hopeless with directions. Gosho never used kanji to write that word, so it could mean that they're all horrible at something.] Q43: Who would win in a match between Kyogoku, Subaru, and Amuro? Do you have plans for a match between them? A: Probably not all three of them at once, but I really want to have a showdown between any two of them! Q44: Kyogoku-san is really happy compared to how he used to be in the past. Is it because he found love? A: Of course! Q45: Thank you for doing so many stories in Gunma prefecture. There's more than just mountains here, so how about doing a case set at the Tomioka Silk Mill, a world heritage site? A: Would it reallly be a good idea to have a case occuring there? Q46: Mitsuhiko's pretty bright. Is it because he used to be a third-year middle schooler and was shrunk by the BO? A: Nope! (laughs) Q47: Please tell us how the Kudo couple met! A: It's explained in a special! Q48: Will you draw a story explaining why Takagi wanted to become a police officer? A: Do you want me to draw it? (laugh) Q49: How much does Takagi know of Conan being Shinichi? Or rather, what does he think of Conan? A: Well, he thinks that Conan is incredibly smart, but hasn't noticed anything else about him. Q50: The Organization has a "very secret" plan wich started half a century ago. Are the Black Organization and the Pacific War connected? A: What~? Do you think that these two are related? Q51: Who is the Organization's boss? You can just say a hint. A: Hint: It's not Agasa! Q52: Could you draw a showdown between the original Kaito Kid, Toichi Kuroba, and Yusaku Kudo? A: I would like to draw it! Q53: Who drives the fastest between Sato and Yukiko? A: Sato, because she's the White Witch (laugh) Q54: What good thing has happened to you recently? A: [don't understand. I think it's a KanColle reference] Q55:Please give the series a happy end, with Shuuichi Akai and Jodie getting back together, and draw what happens after they do (For example, with Akai's cooking skills, he'd be an elite FBI Agent by day, but when he comes home, he's actually a family man who's better at housekeeping than Jodie, maybe?). A: That wouldn't be interesting! (laughs) Q56: Will there be Shinichi and Ran'z wedding at the end of the manga? A: What's going to happen? Look forward to it (laugh) Q57: Is it possible that Gin is actually a good guy? A: Impossible! (laughs loudly) Q58: What do you think of the 'wall slam' technique that's popular in Shoujo manga lately? I'd like it if you did a 'wall slam' scene in Detective Conan. [A 'wall slam' (kabe don) is a situation 1) where a boy corners a girl by slamming his hand against a wall with his body over her, trapping her, usually in a romance scene; or 2) when someone gets so angry out of frustration that they want to punch a wall] A: I've drawn Ran doing a 'telephone pole slam' on Shinichi before, actually... Q59: I like black-skinned people. I really want Amuro-san, Kyogoku-san and Heiji Hattori appear together in the manga. If drawing their face is a trouble, you could just make two of them appear at the same time. Please, Sensei! A: Now, with computer painting, colorizing his face is not a trouble anymore, the main problem is the shape of his face. (note: not sure about the answer) Q60: What do you think will happen to Shinichi and Ran after graduating high-school? A: That's something you're going to have to wait and see! (laughs) Q61: Araide-sensei hasn't made an appearance! Please let him appear! A: Ah! I completely forgot! Sorry (laughs) Q62: Are Sera and Haibara cousins? A: Stop asking in a roundabout way, I'm not going to get tricked! (laughs) [Question 5 and 62 are related] Q63: Is Sera-san going to be a key person in the conclusion? Also, will she ever become more feminine? (laughs) A: Her mother has huge boobs... So I think she'll have a nice body in the end! (laughs) Q64: I want to see a collaboration between Sera-chan and Hakuba-kun! A: You do? How come? (laughs) Q65: Were you the one to chose Noriko Hidaka as the voice actor for Sera, or is it a member of the production company who chose her? A: I chose her, because I like her! Q66: Does Sera-chan never show two doubled-teeth at once? A: Do you want her to? Q67: Does Sera know about the Black Org? A: She doesn't know. Q68: Does Sera have a boyfriend? A: No! But there is someone... (laugh) Q69: Please tell me if there is anything surprising about Akai, Amuro, and Sera! (Q42 and Q69 are related.) A: They're all tone deaf, or something (laughs) [Later on in the thread, someone clarifies that the original says オンチ in both cases, which in that context can mean anything from being tone deaf, or completely hopeless with directions. Gosho never used kanji to write that word, so it could mean that they're all horrible at something.] Q70: Does Akai have a gun he really likes? Every time the Organization appeared, Gin used a sniper. A: I should ask my assistant Yamagishi. (note: not entirely sure about the question) Q71: Akai-san has repeated that he would "give his life to protect someone". Is it a foreshadowing for his death? A: Stay tuned! Q72: Before Akai came to Japan in Volume 29, did he investigate or solve any cases as an FBI agent in America? I'm curious about what happened during the two years Akai was in America after he left the BO. A: He investigated normal cases and also cases involving the BO. As for why/how Akai became an FBI agent, I can't tell you right now. (laughs) Q73: Does Akai-san like kids? A: He probably has come to like them. (laughs) Q74: Could someone like Akai be real? A: No, it's impossible (laugh) Q75: Does Shuuichi Akai have back pain? A: Why? (laughs) Q76: If you went on a date with Shuuichi Akai, where do you think he'd take you? He'd probably keep driving for the whole thing. Q77: What types of women do Shuuichi Akai and Tooru Amuro like? Let's see... Akai would like someone who can have a controlling aura without saying a word. And Amuro would like someone who doesn't mind him talking all the time. Q78: To have the real Okiya Subaru make an appearance, without it being Akai or Yuusaku in disguise ... Would that be possible? A: I don't think it is. Q79: Is Akai Okiya? A: Sorry, please go read the manga. Q80: Will Chiba be married? A: Will he? (laugh) Q81: How much does a member of the Organisation earn a year? And do they make more or less than you, Aoyama-sensei? A: Don't ask that! Q82: Does Inspector Yamato have stubble [bushouhige] because he thinks it's fashionable? Or just because he thinks it's a pain to shave? A: He has stubble because he's a commander [bushou]. (laughs) Q83: I want you to do a story about Teitan Primary's Culture Festival! I'd like to see Conan-kun acting in a play if you did. A: What? You want to see that? Q84: Who decided wich character owns wich car? A: I decided for Subaru's RX-7 and 360, but it's Yamagishi who decided for the other cars. Q85: I want to see Heiji Hattori vs Kaito Kid!! A : You want it~? Q86: If you put the first kanji of Heiji's and Haibara's name together, it makes the word "peace" (和平"). Did you do it on purpose? A: I didn't do it on purpose, but I like it! Q87: While solving all the problems in Conan, will the mystery on Kaito's father getting killed get solved in the mean time as well? A: They won't be solved at the same time! Moreover, he didn't get killed! Q88: Eisuke Hondo hasn't reappeared yet? A: Not for the moment, but he's going to be interesting! Q89: Why are there red bricks on the covers of the volumes? A: The design department decided it. Q90: In Detective Conan, who is like Aoyama-sensei? A: Kogoro Mori. Q91: Is Ran better in karate than she was before? A: If there was karate at the Olympics, she would get the Gold Medal (laugh) Q92: I hope women characters are going to give kicks in the crotch of other characters! A: Officer Sato does it very well! Q93: What is Ran and Shinichi's bloodtype? Isn't it type B? A: Think what you want, choose wichever you prefer. Q94: I want to know what Ran does in her everyday life at home. When Kogoro and Conan are at home, what does Ran do? A: Do you want to know? <3 Q95: How old will be Ran when she'll get married? A: Do you want to know? <3 (laugh) Q96: When will there be a devlopment in Shinichi and Ran's relationship? Ran only got scared after the confession in London... A: Please look forward to it! (note: not sure about the question) Q97: Please make Ran cuter! The manga series needs more Ran! A: I've got a lot of Ran stuff I should draw someday soon. (laughs) Q98: I want to see Ran wearing a kimono in the manga. A: It's really complicated to draw, except when I draw it with colors (laugh) Q99: Tell me how I could look like Ran! A: You would have to do a horn in your hair. So you should just drop it (laugh) Q100: My friend says that the Boss is Shinichi! A: Please tell your friend, "Congratulations, you've got it wrong!" Q101: I'm dissatisfied with the way I'm living. How can I lead a happy life? A: Please don't accidentally become an 'educated idler.' (The kanji used here is probably 高等游民 koutou yuumin, who's educated/knowledgeable but doesn't have a job, and spends his life pursuing knowledge. If any of you watch jdramas, a Spring 2015 drama, Date ~Koi to wa Donna Mono Kashira~'s lead male is an educated idler.) Q102: Hi, Aoyama-sensei! My father named me Yuria because he likes the series Hokuto no Ken. I like Detective Conan, so when I have a child in the future, I want to name him Conan. But if I do so, I can't write it in kanji, so do I have to write it in katakana? By the way, I have kanji for my name. A: Feel free to do so according to your own interests ... (laughs) Q103: What do you take the more care of when drawing the manga recently? A: I want the criminal to be the less sucpicious than possible. Q104: Who are your favorite characters? A: I like them all. Q105: Are the lines under Akai's, Sera's, and The Sister From Outside The Domain's eyes supposed to be dark circles? Or are they just eyelashes? A: They're dark circles. They all have threatening gazes. Q106: I'd like you to draw a scene where Amuro-kun's eyes turn into little dots! A: Huh? Wait, I haven't drawn that already? (laughs) Q107: If you were involved in a case, Aoyama-sensei, would you try and deduce it? A: Sometimes I think, 'Well, if this happened...' but if it came down to it, it'd seem too indecent... Q108: I've heard that you wanted to draw anime when you were young. I hope you'll draw until you die! A: Oh, leave me alone! (laugh)/Sure! Leave it to me!! (laughs) Q109: I think Aoyama-sensei will probably grow some beards, will you also add beards while drawing your eggplant-like self-portraits? A: Then it wouldn't be an eggplant anymore! Q110: Did you like deducing stuff before? Is it because of this that you are that skilled? A: Before, I liked going to the library to read books about Sherlock Holmes. Q111: Have you always liked mysteries, Aoyama-sensei? If so, what was the first thing that got you interested in mysteries? I've been interested in them ever since I read the Sherlock Holmes story 'The Dancing Men' in my primary school library. Q112: I know you were born in Tottori Prefecture, Aoyama-sensei, but do you write Heiji's Osaka Accent by yourself too? I have one of the editors who's from Osaka edit it afterward. Q113: How many times do you go to Tottori each year? A: Once, in January. Q114: Well done Sensei, for the Tottori Conan Airport! A: Ah, yes! Q115: The Boss = Ano Kata = the first letter of his nickname = A, just as in "Aoyama Gosho", don't you think? A: Interesting! But no. Q116: Who is the producer currently? A: It was Kurosawa before, now, it's Uchida. Q117: Who's your favourite movie director? A: It used to be Akira Kurosawa. But now it's probably Kenji Uchida? Q118: Wich character tires you the most to draw? A: Kid! Q119: When I draw, I don't manage to draw well hands... Any tip for me? A: Look at your own hands. Q120: Conan has been in many cities, and many times in Osaka. I live in Osaka, and I'm really happy each time I recognize some buildings! Are you interested in Osaka? A: Yes, because it's near Tottori. Q121: Which character was the hardest to design in terms of background and appearance? A: I spent a lot of time working on Sera-chan. Q122: Do you own any [video game] consoles? A: Yep. Q123: Would you like to do mountain-climbing? A: No. Q124: How do you manage to be healthy? A: Vegetable juice once a day! Q125: Which murder method is the one you like best so far? A: Recently, I think the blogger actress murder case in Volume 87 uses an interesting way to commit murder. Q126: What manga or book would you recommand? A: Chihayafuru. Q127: What makes you really happy, Sensei? A: K-K-Kan Colle! Q128: How can I do so that my question appears in the SDB 80+? A: Congrats, it appeared in the SDB! Q129: Where would Sensei recommnd us to go in Britain? Or in other countries? A: Big Ben. And for the other countries, Venice's sunset is really nice, but I don't have time to go in Italy. Q130: Why do some people think you really are an eggplant? You're human! A: I'm human! Q131: Would Sensei like to do voice acting in a movie? A: I'm too shy, so it's a no. Q132: Who do you like best in K-On? A: Yui, of course! Q133: Do you practise sports when you have vacations? A: I don't have vacations. Q134: Was Sensei happy to go to Brazil? A: Really happy! Q135: In 1997, there were the "Detective Conan Puzzles" wich I loved, they were really interesting. I hope there are going to be more of them. A: They were good, weren't they? See, Mr. Editor? Q136: Do you mix curry with rice? A: No I don't. Q137: No more questions, just good luck for what happens next! Love Conan! A: Thank you, I'll do my best! Q138: Do your best! I will do my best too for my exams! A: Good luck Probably from other interviews or misnumbered Q12: plz draw conan being sick or close to death, that kind of dangerous story. Gosho: i used to draw his being sick often. maybe something will happen in the future Q17: how much does Genta weigh? A: dont know...池中玄太 is 80 kilograms (176 lbs.) Q24: do u go online to see ppl's plot predictions? if yes, how do u feel? A: Gosho: sometimes. when they predict correctly, i think "wow they r good!" and even when that happens, i dont think of changing the plot. (I know he means the Japanese ones, but, Chek, I'm lookin' at you..) Q32: Please, Amuro vs Haneda! A: Heh? A shogi match? Q42: Why is the sister from outside the domain ill? A: Why? He he he...

    Reading this topic reminds me of the moronic facebook posts made by some girls who thought the Boston Bomber brothers were innocent because one of them was cute. Yes, that was a thing. Justice is blind for a good reason. I find Shinichi and Ran idealistic when it comes to their principles about murder. One way to look at ethics is to measure how much someone values sticking to good principles versus good outcomes. A principle-driven person would not support bad means even if it led to a very good end, while an outcome-driven person would be upset when good principles prevented good ends. Shinichi and Ran are both very principled, and that works well in places like Japan which is attentive to crime. It is hard to be principled in places that are unfair. For instance, there have been lots of cases in India where repeat rapists and killers who kept getting away because of connections or threats were then killed by mobs. (Akku Yadav was a famous one.) Is it worth standing by your principle not to murder when a rapist will keep attacking the women and children in your community with no hope of justice? That's the sort of decisions some people have to face. Even though I live in a nice country, I can recognize adherence to principles is a luxury rather than universal law that will work well for everyone. That's why I think that Shinichi and Ran are idealistic - they are inexperienced when it comes to struggles others have to face in unfair places. Mostly I hate it when Gosho tries to say one side of the ethics measure I mentioned above is the right one. There was a moment of really strong values dissonance in the fandom when Sera tried to get that hostage taker shot in Mouri agency hostage case but Ran stopped her because she didn't want him to be killed. Gosho made it seem like Sera was worse than Ran for trying to put a good outcome ahead of good principles. I don't like that sort of simplistic thinking about ethics. Both sides have their merits.

    Some reports regarding Let's Talk with Aoyama-sensei Day 2015: https://twitter.com/sksnkmn A few translations by Fuji: The reason Yuusaku didn't go to the Macademy Awards himself is because he and Akai have roughly the same height. What's the reason that the boss' phone number (it says phone number, btw) has the area code of Kurayoshi? -> It's just coincidence. Apparently Gosho did some shooting in Hawaii. Gin chose his car (Or Gosho chose Gin's car, I guess), cause it's cool. When's Haibara's bday? --> undecided Why does Akai always wear a knitted hat? --> Probably cause he likes it Conan or Kid - which one do you like better? --> I like them both the same. In Countdown, we didn't get to see 10-years-into-the-future Ran. Will we get the opportunity to see that some time? --> You will~ Who pays Heiji and Kazuha's plane tickets? --> His mom Which of Conan's movements are impossible? --> All of them. How old are Satou/Miyamoto/Shiratori? --> I imagine them to be 28 Which cosplay would you like to try out? --> The flashy guy in white

    (Image source) DCW Secret Santa Event 2014! What? How could this be? It isn't even past Thanksgiving! It's way too early for this! I agree, it seems a bit early. But here's a bit of my reasoning on why this is going to get started soon. I also ran the previous Secret Santa event for 2013 (link here) and I started it up too late. Due to the strict time constraints, an issue came up during the event and one person did not get their gift on time. Also, because it started up so fast, there were people that wanted to join but just couldn't. I want to get this event started soon so issues can be handled in a less rushed manner, get everyone who wants to participate on board, and give people plenty of time to make their gifts. Just for reference, the 2012 and 2011 events had their topics about this time, and they worked pretty well. This event won't work that differently from the other years' events, so if you are curious on how it worked, check out the links in the previous paragraph. With that said, here's some information about this event: How to Join: In order to signup, just post in this topic. You can also PM me or leave a comment on my profile. Remember that once signups close, gift-giving is mandatory! You can't drop out after signups close, so please make sure that you have time in your schedules to make a gift! While you can signup first and post your wishlist (see below) later, I prefer that you do both at the same time. If you signup through PM or comment, please post your wishlist in this topic! How to Make a Wishlist: Your wishlist is just what it sounds like, a wishlist. It's a way to tell your Secret Santa what you want. Remember that this is only a suggestion, and while most Secret Santas will try to fit your wishlist, others may not or can not. Wishlists are not binding. This should consist of at least 3 (and preferably exactly 3) series, characters, or other things that you want to see in your gift. These need not be native to Detective Conan, but try to keep at least one Detective Conan related thing in your list, and if you decide to go for a non-DC character, please note where the character comes from! Note that I said that the wish list should consist of at least 3 things. You can put more than 3 things, but this is just a way for people who simply can't decide between 5 of their favorite series or characters and really want to put down all 5. This is not for people to put down an excessive amount of things. In general, I would keep it to 3. You're more likely to get what you want, and your Secret Santa isn't going to have as many troubles deciding. If you want, you can also list what kind of gift you want (music, fanfic, etc.), but your Secret Santa is not necessarily obligated to make that gift. Here's an example wishlist that I made: How to Upload Your Gift: So you made your gift! Great, but how do you get it to your awesome receiver? Well, this honestly depends on what gift you are uploading. Here are a few general guidelines: Fanfics/fanart: Either posted here or on another publicly accessible site. AMVs: Youtube, preferably, I really can't hold a lot of movie files on my computer. Songs: Upload it as an .mp3 file to some public file-hosting website (I'm fond of Mediafire). If you can password-lock it, please give it the password: secretsanta (all lower case, no caps). You can also upload it onto Youtube. If you happen to be making a gift that doesn't fit the above categories, or you just have questions, just PM me. We'll find a way. Remember that once you upload your gift, please give the link to me through PM! It's no good if I don't have access to it! I'll always send a confirmation PM noting I did get the link, or there were problems with your link, or what not, so keep tabs on your inboxes! Any other questions? Feel free to ask! Did I leave out something? Point it out! Timeline for this Year: Deadlines always expire on the day listed below, at midnight, in Mountain Standard Time. For your convenience, I also highlighted the particularly important dates. - ***November 24, 2014***: All signups close! Remember that gift-giving is mandatory, so if you realize that you're going to be too busy this coming month, tell me so I can remove you from the list! I will assign everyone who signs up a person and give them their wishlist through PM by a few days after this date. - December 15, 2014: I will begin screaming in this topic and maybe through PM to remind everyone that the deadline for gifts is the following week! REMEMBER THAT THE DEADLINE IS NEXT WEEK, PEOPLE! Something like that. - December 21, 2014: Winter equinox! (Though you should be finishing gifts instead of appreciating this small fact. :V) - ***December 22, 2014***: Deadline for gifts! Get your gifts in! Barring exceptional circumstances, I'm not going to take any gifts beyond this time. I need to organize all the gifts, and that will take time! Please make this process easy for me so there won't be any hassle before the gift-giving! Note that while this is the deadline, I will most definitely accept gifts earlier. While I don't want to encourage rushing, if you have your gift done early then by all means turn it in! - December 23, 2014: Stretch! Relax! You turned in your gift, and now it's time to wait while I organize the gifts behind the scenes for your convenience. - December 24, 2014: Silence. This is fun, isn't it? - ***December 25, 2014***: GIFTS! Here comes all the gifts that you made for each other! The reveals! The surprises! The drama! O, what fun... Current signups: - kirsch - Misaki-chan - MeiTanteixX - astraculpa - Kjehdal - Hikari chan - Raki

    It's Thanksgiving Break where I live, so I finally got the opportunity to finish some banner I was working on for a while: If there are any suggestions you would like to make (fonts, color scheme, arrangement, etc.), feel free to insert them here. This is only one type of style I enjoy working with, so I'll probably showcase some others later. I make a variety of stuff like banners (or signatures for DCW), avatars/icons, wallpapers, etc., so if you have anything you would like to see, ask away! Brownie points to whoever can guess the DC openings this banner was inspired by, haha. >> next art post >> << previous art post <<

    Haha, I'm back! Thanks guys for the feedback~ Here's a fan art I made for Conan-kun! I used Krita and a cheap tablet, and referenced off his wiki picture:
