    (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:

Is he half-blooded? A: Maybe (laugh) Q39: Is Amuro in couple with someone? A: He's single! Q42: Why is the sister from outside the domain ill? A: Why? He he he... (laugh) Q43: If Kyogoku-san, Subaru-san and Amuro-san fought, who would win? A: [can't understand the answser] Q44: Kyogoku-san is really happy compared to how he used to be in the past.

    Link to the Wiki Article Oversights in Detective Conan I have a test article set up where I hope to catalogue oversights in Detective Conan, that is errors, plotholes, omissions, etc. It is a new type of article in that it is going to be full of opinions a bit like how tvtropes works. I am hoping it will work out considering how well speculation sections are doing across the board. If you want to add something or a rebuttal, please follow the guidelines. If you have anything to add, or suggestions on how to improve the layout, I am open to advice.

    Normally I'd just outright delete this, but I figure this is a perfect example of what NOT to post as a response in a discussion, or on any forum in general. Drop this attitude. Don't comment if you don't have anything constructive to add other than flamebaits and personal attacks. We don't need this crap.

    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?

    Anyway, on topic, I personally get annoyed with Shiho for the same reason I am annoyed with Shinichi - she keeps secrets she shouldn't because she fails to trust others and in doing so causes unnecessary danger to those around her by not offering up information in a timely manner. While I understand that she may have psychological damage from being in the Organization and good reason to think Shinichi might run off and get himself killed if she tells him too much, it would behoove her to explain all the capabilities of Organization members to Conan immediately and not hide her suspicions if she fears she is being investigated. For instance, the moment she sensed Vermouth she should have explained to Conan that they might be dealing with a master of disguise. Conan would have been more careful around Araide (and everyone else in general) from the start and avoided a great deal of trouble.

    If you are looking for specific Black Organization topics, see these: Black Organization's true plan (Speculation on what is the goal of the Black Organization.) Itakura's computer program Night Baron Virus APTX 4869 Are the Magic Kaito Organization and Detective Conan Black Organization the same? How will Shinichi/Conan beat the Black Organization? Why both the FBI and CIA are separately involved with the Black Organization Why is the Black Organization "Black"? The probable ending you would give each Organization member For individual members of the Organization, see the Thread Reference Guide. Anyway, I wanted to kick start some discussion since there has been a pretty dramatic lull in manga stuff. Here are three to start, feel free to add your own. Why do you all think the Black Organization focuses on getting people into entertainment (Kir, Vermouth) when science and computer stuff is more of their end goal? Why have we not encountered any canon science/tech BO who are infiltrating clean companies? Why do you think the Black Organization members are confused about Rum's obvious appearance, like whether he is masculine or feminine, old or young, yet everyone knows and agrees about his fake eye? What do you suspect are the circumstances behind Scotch's death?

    I don't think it's very popular, but then again I also don't feel like it deserves to be any more well known than it already is. In my opinion, there are far better anime out there that deserve much more attention (whether they receive it or not is a separate issue all together) and currently DC gets as much love as it is worth. It's far from the best thing I've watched/read, but it's also far from the worst. Only reason I see it as better than average is because of nostalgia. As for the big three shounen, Naruto is over (kinda), no one really gives Bleach the light of day anymore, and the only thing worth any attention is One Piece. Their reign on the anime community is crumbling, that's for sure. A bit off topic, but anime is nothing like it used it be over a decade and a half ago. No one wants to watch a never ending series, so those have been virtually snuffed out of existence. The age of fansubs are coming to an end now that Crunchyroll and Funimation have monopolized the market. The times they are a-changin', for better or worse.

    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?

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+?

    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

    I hate to start off on such a tragic note but this is very, very oh so incredibly important. Unfortunately another transgender teen, Zander, has committed suicide. I found out about this recently myself so I don't know too much information but I found this screencap of a facebook post about it along with a memorial blog for him and his personal blog. And to help raise awareness about teenage trans suicide #HisNameWasZander is being used on social media. Screencap from facebook Memorial blog Zander's blog (just as a head's up his suicide note is the second post and it's very hard to read in full and some may want to avoid seeing that) RIP Zander, Leelah and to all the other unnamed trans lives that succumbed to their toxic environments in the time between these two's passing that went unnoticed. Now that that's been said, same sex marriage becoming legal in more states is always exciting! Little steps towards equality always save my faith in humanity just a little bit. Seeing all the pictures of gay couples getting married following same sex marriage getting legalized is always really cute too. Especially with the older couples because you can tell just by how bright their expressions are that they've been waiting for that moment for an unnecessarily long time. As for the aromantics and asexuals on valentines day; I hang out in the aro/ace community a bit and it seems like the majority isn't upset about valentine's day. A lot of the day seemed to be cake jokes and talking about what would be better than going out to crowded places on a weekend all because some commercial holiday is really hyped up. And some aro/ace valentines had been circling around tumblr so we could feel included in the whole thing too which was nice. My personal favorites were these ones: If I may add, awareness for other gender identities here aside from just male/female would be nice. Gender, like sexuality, is a spectrum and a good amount of people seem to fall in the in between the two extremes. (gender's also fluid like sexuality and can change with time) To name a few some nonbinary gender identities are: Agender - someone having no gender/gender neutral Androgyne - someone having masculine and feminine traits and identifies as a mix of male/female Bigender - someone simultaneously having two genders Gender fluid - switching between two or more genders Demi-boy/Demi-girl - usually means they feel agender and male or agender and female EDIT: I remembered a few more commonly used gender identities and wanted to add them as well! Neutrois - similar to agender, pretty much a synonym for it Genderqueer - usually refers to someone still figuring out their gender identity and at the very least knows they're nonbinary though it's also an umbrella term for non-cis* people Trigender - someone simultaneously having three genders Genderflux - similar to gender fluid, almost a synonym but seems to be used when the switch between genders is more intense than gender fluid (*Cis is short for cisgender. If you are cisgendered, you identify with the gender you're born with based on your sex.) There's also a couple more but those are the main ones I see used around other websites. This topic's pretty important to me because I'm not straight (nor cis though I won't get into that.) and while I was really thrilled to realize there was a term for my lack of interest and desire for a romantic and/or sexual relationship and that I wasn't just weird because I could never contribute to conversations when my friends talked about their crushes, it left a bad taste in my mouth for a while. I felt like I was on the outside looking in because I just can't relate to how highly romantic/sexual relationships are viewed. Hell, the one time I said marriage wasn't my thing to my one parent I was told that because of that I'd never be happy in life (...thanks). The ace community has also helped me out quite a bit. Though they're almost a little too nice at times, it's a very nice place to fall back on and turn to for help when needed and the fact that I had trouble finding a forum specifically for other orientations makes me all the more thankful for it. I digress, it's just very exciting to think about how by the time our generation is the in control of things it'll be so much more accepting of other sexual orientations and gender identities. So uh... yeah,, , , ,

    I actually completely disagree with Kuroda being RUM, these are my thoughts on the whole RUM thing: There are 3 suspects so far that have a chance of being RUM, they are: 1) Kansuke Yamato, although i doubt it since he doesn't have an artificial eye(though he may have been putting it in front of organization members), and since he is the first suspect I also doubt it,, besides, he saw Haibara, and unless 'RUM' doesn't know Shiho or knows her but is like vermouth and hides the fact that he knows she is Haibara from the organization(I doubt both cases) he should've already reported her a long time ago. Besides, he isn't that old, and the reason I think RUM is old is because I highly doubt someone who is young and thus hasn't been with the organization for long could make it to the second in command, unless he did something unbelievable, but I still highly doubt it. 2) Kiyonaga Matsumoto, although he injured his eye, and it might be artificial, i just can't see him being mistaken for feminine or old, however, it is also very likely that the characteristics of 'RUM' aren't what we think they are, but anyway he's 54 years old, I still think he's too young to be the 2nd in command. 3) Hyoue Kuroda who was just introduced in the latest chapter(913), he is 50 years old, his right eye is injured, and he is a well-built man, according to chapter 914, he was in a 10 year-long coma because of an accident and after it he looked like a completely different person. He is also clearly acting suspiciously, and he knows that Conan is the mastermind behind sleeping Kogoro. Some people say that Hyoue sounds like a female name, although even if that was true, one RUM's characteristics is a feminine man, not a woman, so I'm not so sure. The reason why most people think he is RUM is because his name is Kuroda, Kuro means black but to me, the more obvious it is, the less suspicious it is(we've already been trolled with Jodie and Okiya, not to mention the other characters in these arcs, and I honestly think it's way too early to decide who is RUM, I think the whole RUM arc might be as long as the Bourbon arc since it started in the same way, Kir warns the FBI about a new member, then about 20 chapters later someone with the characteristics of that member is introduced). 'RUM' might just be a new character we have never seen though. But I'm sure it's not Yamato, and it's also not Kuroda, and the obvious reason is because he reminds me of a certain character back in the Vermouth arc: Jodie, Jodie did a lot of suspicious things and seemed to know about how smart Conan is, so she was the most obvious choice for being Vermouth, however it was clearly not the case, so the same applies to this guy, he is not RUM(although to be fair, Kuroda looks way more evil than Jodie, you can tell by his eyes, but I think that RUM would still look more evil, since even Gin looks way more evil than Kuroda, anyway it's normal that he looks evil, since this is one of the suspect of being the 2nd in command we're talking about, he has to do things that are very suspicious, who knows, maybe he would know Conan is Shinichi, besides there are other things that make me doubt he is RUM such as his age, and the comma that he's been in, since it's hard to imagine the 2nd in command being in a 10-year long comma, since the BO would probably have some problems.), not to mention there is also something weird about him if he was RUM, he has a big burn mark that surrounds his artificial eye, which should be easily distinguishable, so it should've been one of the characteristics of RUM that were told of Haibara, it is also likely that members would also tell Haibara which eye is artificial, since it's clear from the burn mark. However, I'm pretty sure he is a plot-related character(and also, when I'm looking for a suspect of being a member of the BO, I try to see their actions and which ones are not explainable, and when it comes to Kuroda, his actions can be explained easily, it's simply that the Nagano police really know that Conan is the mastermind behind Sleeping Kogoro, so it's natural that he also knows, however, if a suspect of being RUM does something that can't be explained by normal ways, then he's most probable RUM), because so far, every single suspect of being a member of the BO who turned out not to be that member was later shown to be a plot related character, examples are: Jodie, Shuichi, James Black, Eisuke, Okiya(who is Shuichi) and Masumi, but the thing is, if he is plot-related, what would he be? Is he just someone from the police who is investigating about the BO? Or is he an MI6 agent who is working in the police while also investigating the BO? Anyway When it comes to RUM I still think that it can't be any of these 3, because in my opinion, RUM has to have been one of the original members of the BO, or the first member along side the boss and Vermouth, which is why he has to be at least 70, and non of these people are that old, besides, non of them really show the 3 characteristics of RUM, although for some reason, I think that RUM's characteristics are not what we think they are, maybe there is some sort of secret or trick behind them, like for example, it may be related to RUM's actions rather than appearance, like some members heard or saw RUM do something feminine, some others heard or saw him do something old people would do, and others heard or saw him do something only a strong man could do, or it might be related to the generations of the BO, like, the old members remember young RUM as a feminine man, the younger members remember him the middle aged RUM as a strong man, and the young members who joined not too long ago remember him as an old man, because unless RUM's characteristics are not physical, he can't be one of those 4, but anyway the reason I think RUM has to be one of the first members of the BO is because as I said in Yamato's case, I don't think any member can just become the 2nd in command unless they have been an original member, since I doubt the boss would trust anyone with that rank so it has to be someone old, so for now I'm voting for a new character. As for RUM's personality, I think it would be like Gin and the boss, it's like Gin as in he would probably be suspicious of anything, and would take care of it immediately, and it's like the boss as in he would be extremely cautious, I think that while the boss would give an important order, RUM is the one to do the action, like for example, I noticed something, the fact that every time someone says it's an order from 'Anokata' to justify there acts, the other members wouldn't even say a word, which makes me think that maybe if someone opposes the boss, they would be killed, although it might just be because of their loyalty, but let's just say that they would be killed, I think that RUM is the one to execute them. I also think that RUM is probably a type of person that will give you one chance, and if you disobey him once, you'll be killed, for example, in an alternative path, instead of Akemi meeting Gin, she met RUM, when she told Gin that the organization should release her sister and then she'll tell them the whereabouts of the money, Gin said that they won't and that it's her last chance, while I think that RUM would've killed her immediately. The most dangerous thing about RUM is that no one knows much about him, not even the organization members themselves since each one describes him differently, Haibara never even met him, the FBI and CIA never knew about him, which is weird considering he's the second in command. I think RUM will be the one to discover that Kir and possibly also Bourbon are traitors, which would mean they would be killed. But when it comes to RUM's objective, it's really hard to figure it out since this is the 2nd in command we're talking about, usually whenever a member is on the move, they are not even an executive member, but this time, it's the boss' right hand man, so what is his goal? well, after thinking about it, there can only be 3 objectives: 1) He is going after Kudo Shinichi, after all maybe the boss and Gin are starting to have doubts about Shinichi's death, so RUM's objective may be to gather information about it. 2) He is looking into the members of the organization to see if any one is an undercover spy for another group, and since RUM is probably the most loyal member, he can judge the others. 3) And this one is my favorite, he is looking for new members, and not just any new members, scientists and programmers, since when you think about it, it's unreasonable for the BO to stop their main goal, the only reason they weren't working on it is probably because the priority was Sherry's death, and now that she's dead to the BO, there is no way that the BO is just going to forget about the program and the drug, and since it is related to the BO's main goal, RUM is the most capable member of doing this objective. Although it could be all these 3 objectives together. And btw I'm new to this forum . Oh and as for RUM or Kuroda being Akai's father, it's doubtful, especially in Kuroda's case, but first, I'll talk about why RUM is not likely to be Akai's father, you see, Akai was infiltrating the organization for 3 years, if RUM is his father, then that means one of 2 things, the first of them is that he's also undercover, which no one wants, and the second one is that he's loyal and he just stayed silent about Akai being undercover, but you could say that he didn't know he was undercover or that he didn't even meet him, but anyway Akai's father is supposed to be dead and there is nothing to prove otherwise, his estimated time of death is probably 16-10 years ago, and it doesn't really make since if he faked it at that time, one would expect him to fake his death(if he did) when he joined the organization. As for Kuroda being his father, that is not possible, first of all the eye thing was only in one chapter and it didn't even resemble Akai's eyes much, then we all know that Akai and Sera got their eyes from their mother, not their father, so that pretty much cancels the whole thing, if anything Kuroda should look like Shukichi(since he's the middle brother) yet he doesn't.
