What would you change about DC? in General Posted August 7, 2015 · Report reply I think I would have had Heiji remain more of a rival, and maybe not have included Kazuha at all. I think it would have been interesting to have a sort of Hakuba-like rival that is trouble for Shinichi both romantically and during a case. Unlike Magic Kaito where Hakuba with Aoko basically has no chance because Kaito is always around, Ran is isolated from Shinichi. It would be interesting to have a Hakuba-like Heiji offering Ran genuine emotional support while Shinichi is "away" and then falling in love with her. That would have had the potential for a real dramatic conflict and showdown, especially if altHeiji found out Conan was Shinichi and still decided to bypass him to try to win Ran's heart anyway. I agree with that, I don't exactly care about the whole love triangle thing, but Heiji always being his rival would be good, we barely get any cases in which they both compete, and it's always funny to see Heiji's arrogant altitude when he finds out something before Shinichi.
