    Suspicious characters! Discussion about Hyoue Kuroda, Wakasa Rumi, and others.

    Gotcha. Essentially, I'm captivated by the uncertainty before me, right now. Regardless of what I consider to be the most probable or likely, I could see the Rum arc potentially going in completely separate directions—I'm not absolutely certain of Gosho's true answer. In the end, I'd be down for Muga or the other three turning out to be Rum. At the same time, I'm eager to have an answer—to see where Gosho intends to go with this. I'd say the latter possibility is more likely, but, yes—I now concur that Gosho could have been misleading with the answer to that question, and thus, Muga could still be Rum.

    Suspicious characters! Discussion about Hyoue Kuroda, Wakasa Rumi, and others.

    So you're claiming Muga and one of those three (Hyōe, Rumi or Kanenori) are actually the same person?

    Suspicious characters! Discussion about Hyoue Kuroda, Wakasa Rumi, and others.

    Honestly, the twist that the butler of a romance subplot character is Rum actually looks pretty valid to me. The only issue is that, in Super Digest Book Black Plus, Gosho said that Rum was either Hyōe, Rumi or Kanenori—and only one of those three—his answer to that specific question didn't leave room for him to give an evasive answer and leave open the possibility of a fourth suspect. If it turns out there is a fourth suspect, and that suspect is Rum, then Gosho didn't just mislead, evade, or misdirect with this answer—he straight-up lied. And I don't recall Gosho straight-up lying when it comes to questions regarding the unrevealed big mysteries of the series. I don't recall him ever declaring, be it in Let's Talk Days or SDBs or interviews—before the reveals—that Vermouth wasn't disguised as Dr. Ariade, or that Hidemi Hondō and Rena Mizunashi weren't the same person, or that Scar Akai was Bourbon, or that Bourbon was Tōru Amuro. So I don't think he'd lie about Rum only being either Hyōe, Rumi or Kanenori. In spite of this, I can't deny the possibility that Kanenori is actually Tsutomu Akai—if there was evidence proving he couldn't be Papa Akai, though, then I'd easily name him as my top suspect, even above Muga. For me, the possibility that Kanenori = Papa Akai and Gosho's answer to that SDB Black+ question are my biggest points of contention—if it turns out that there are only 3 Rum suspects, and Kanenori turns out to be Tsutomu, then Rum must be Hyōe or Rumi (I don't honestly think that Rum is Tsutomu—Gosho subverting Shūichi's Gundam-inspired backstory and make his dad the second biggest of the bads, instead of really dead and/or a heroic figure, is quite a longshot). If it ends up that only Hyōe or Rumi can be Rum, then one of them has been playing the long game and biding time, in spite of knowing info that could be devastating to Team Conan if they simply acted on it—Rum waiting to spring a trap on Team Conan and the NOCs despite knowing such important info to his goal seems to go against his impatience. From here, we have to consider the Vermouth = Rumi possibility. If that's true, and Tsutomu is Kanenori (and not Rum), then Hyōe must be Rum (assuming there is no fourth suspect, of course). I want to say that Hyōe's knowledge precludes him from the suspect list completely, but I just don't know if he's biding his time or not. So, at this time, my ranking of the suspects, in terms of how likely it is that they'll turn out to be Rum, goes like this: Most likely: Kanenori and/or Muga Second-most likely: Rumi Least likely: Hyōe

    Suspicious characters! Discussion about Hyoue Kuroda, Wakasa Rumi, and others.

    He was eager to talk to Taka'aki—after that conversation, Taka'aki thought of Rum's signature phrase. If Hyōe is just Rei's/Tōru's NPA boss, then he may be looking to loop in the older Morofushi on the plan Team Conan's proposed to Rei/Tōru (the plan that still hasn't been revealed—just like the plan they came up with during the Vermouth arc climax). Apart from that, he did go out of his way to approach Rumi—Rumi's probably related to any purely personal motives he may have—yet he didn't intervene while the Kyōto case aftermath was going down, like Kanenori (and to a lesser extent, Rumi) did. He even ordered Rei/Tōru to help Shinichi/Conan out with a case. Out of the 3 suspects and Muga, I'd be most surprised if Hyōe turned out to be Rum, honestly.

    Suspicious characters! Discussion about Hyoue Kuroda, Wakasa Rumi, and others.

    Yeah, I noticed that, too, while reading 1,040—especially the bit where he actually counted the minutes and seconds. And what's your opinion on the impatience and time sensitivity of Hyōe, Rumi and Kanenori, by comparison?

    It is, indeed, movie context—from Movie 21, specifically (though if you're fluent in Japanese, you likely won't need to watch Movie 21 to get why Momiji calls Kazuha that).

    No, it's not the lighting—Shinichi/Conan even called himself "Arthur Hirai" to Ran in the December trailer, so it seems to be a disguise applied to him by Kid.
