  1. I've been making a list of Rum related posts as I've gone through the Rum arc to see my theory progress and it's super obvious your ideas have had the most influence over my thinking. It's pretty amazing how you'd hit me with something and then after initial resistance I'd come around to it. I'd love to see a super post summarizing your current thoughts on everything.

      Hyoue - Currently someone swapped, but I think he might be part of a backstory that isn't known yet, so we still haven't "met" his real ID in the story yet if that makes any sense. I think he knew Elena or Mary.

      I acknowledge it's not a bad idea, but I'm not really on board with the Tsutomu idea because I am uncomfortable with the 7 year time gap between 10ya coma start and the 17ya case when Tsutomu disappeared. If there was evidence that Tsutomu survived the BO for many years or had a connection that would explain how realHyoue and Tsutomu would cross each other, I'd feel more comfortable with it.


      Rumi - Asaka (On top of being Amanda's bodyguard, she had a personal connection to Koji (I think that it's more likely that they were lovers rather than family members, though)—she witnessed the double-murder, escaped, and, now, is out for revenge against Rum—she's now testing Shinichi/Conan to see if he can help her) [heck of an echo in here]


      Kanenori - Amuro's boxing teacher who also taught him a thing or two about waitstaffing and cooking. I am inclined to think he is on the side of good, but I am uncomfortable really calling it because he needs a followup case.


      Uploader - Rumi

      Tsutomu - no opinion yet.


      Muga - basically Akako's monster butler with a makeover. Plot useless except for romantic comedies with Heiji.


      Asaka - Rumi


      Rum - Chikara because of course it's gonna be the final shogi showdown of ultimate destiny between Kohji's protege and his killer, getting the Akai family some vengeance.

      Not that into the idea of Rumi loving Kohji though. I don't know why its so personal beyond she's pissed someone killed her charge and Kohji, but I'm in wait and see mode for that.

      I agree that the 7 year gap is a pretty big issue—it's yet another case of too little info currently available to us—and I also agree that another person could've replaced the real Hyoue. Still, if the real Hyoue's been replaced, where is the real Hyoue? Still in a coma, elsewhere?


      Yeah, for Kanenori, I might change my opinion from him being a high-ranking BO member to him being someone who just has a personal connection to Rei/Toru, depending on what we get from him in the next case he's in. I'm unsure about him, too, because I just don't know which mislead Gosho's gonna go with—is Gosho trying for a mislead, in terms of a BO member's identity (Kanenori turning out to be a BO member, but not Rum), or an alignment mislead (Kanenori turning out to be neither Rum nor a BO member)?


      I'm unsure about Muga, too—I'm still wondering if he and Momiji have a role to play beyond interfering with HeijixKazuha. I think it'd be a waste for Gosho to have them play only that role—just as much of a waste as him ultimately having Sakurako play no role in the plot. 


      As for me thinking Rumi is Koji's girlfriend rather than his sister—there's no reason a sister wouldn't be more or less driven over a sibling's death (as far as Rumi has clearly been driven) than a girlfriend would be over a lover's death. I guess some would say that my guess is, in fact, another example of the incorrect perception that romantic love has more of an impact than familial love. So maybe I should leave whether she's his girlfriend or sister alone until we actually get exposition/flashback from Rumi that answers that question directly.

  2. I have a reply for you in the works for the suspicious characters thread, but a medical emergency came up that I had to take care of. It might take a bit for a reply since I have to regather all the quotes (copypaste does not save them). I hate this new forum system that doesn't let you save the raw text of your posts :( 

    1. DCUniverseAficionado


      Just asking—I didn't offend you in how I responded to the "perilous" part, did I? If so, it was not my intention. If not, then I'm getting better in not unintentionally offending people, thanks to purely text-based communication, over the Internet.


      "I hate this new forum system that doesn't let you save the raw text of your posts :( "


      I know, right?


      Above all—hope you feel better. ^_^

      It's not me who had the medical emergency. It turned out okay btw.

      You didn't offend me, but I think you overreacted thinking I meant something much stronger than what I actually wrote. I wasn't accusing you of jumping off the deep end or claiming that your ideas are wrong (I am not a fan of the Mary = Asaka, but Wakasa = Asaka is a decent idea); I was saying that discounting the vanilla theory (Asaka = Rum) because it is simple and no-twist before the evidence has come in is a bad habit in my experience.

      "It's not me who had the medical emergency. It turned out okay btw."


      Well, I hope they're feeling better, and that you're doing good, too. ^_^


      "I think you overreacted"


      Not coming off like I'm overreacting is something I, personally, have to work on—I can tell you that's absolutely the case... but just to let you know, your use of the word "perilous" was why I responded in a more direct manner than I would have, otherwise.


      "I was saying that discounting the vanilla theory (Asaka = Rum) because it is simple and no-twist before the evidence has come in is a bad habit in my experience."


      It's just not my primary theory, right now (as of File 971). Once we get more info about the case in question and Asaka, I might swing towards the Asaka = Rum theory, and IT will become my primary theory, depending on the info we get (and this examination of the info we have will continue until the truth is ultimately revealed). Trust me, I'm not discounting it—if it came off like that, then that's another thing I'll need to work on.

  3. Sorry for borking the Rum topic. The poll couldn't be updated. Please resubscribe.

  4. Pinned a bunch of rando threads in General as a test.

  5. Today a light fixture on an automatic timer malfuntioned and caught fire in my bedroom. I was home so I stopped it before it spread, but if you don't have a fire extinguisher, I suggest you get one.

      I find that listening to The Sound of Music's soundtrack helps me out a lot as well. There are some really uplifting and beautiful songs in that movie.

      I needed this today. Thanks :)

    4. Rye


      Thanks, Chek! :)

  7. I think you hold the record for the most name changes at DCW.

    1. Maltavite


      xD, Actually it's Strawberry Knight who holds the record now.

      By the way, I might update the Guns in Detective Conan because Tokarev TT wasn't included.

  8. No 38Cutie is definitely not in the clear. He has a stack of warnings telling him to lay off the culprit forgiveness threads. Thanks for the report

    1. Akazora


      I see, good to know. And no problem!

  9. Thanks for the report!

    1. Akazora


      No problem, just keeping an eye out!

  10. Main Black Organization wiki page has some new stuff under the timeline and modus sections that had been secretly hidden before now. One section is still invisible. Also did some work separating manga from extended canon.

  11. I had to look up what QQ was. :P I am not very familiar with all the Chinese websites. I think I want to stick with the DCW forum, because I don't know about the rules for foreigners using Chinese services.

    1. chinese


      haha,Don't worry that,chinese services not rules,in fact the rules not one will to obey.it don;t like DCW .

  12. I found Gosho's next murder trick. https://giant.gfycat.com/RichActiveJay.gif

      couch lovers murder case :-D

    4. EthanHunter


      "couch lovers murder case" LOL! xD but i do think it would be interesting to have an older trick repeated, hopefully not as the main trick of a case though :)

  13. The manga theory threads have had so much traffic. It's been great. Nice case too!

    1. EthanHunter


      Yeah, plot developing cases with interesting tricks are always great to read! :D

      tfw college has prevented me from catching up with the manga and the case(s) are actually good ones

  14. A test article about errors in detective conan has been posted on the wiki section of the forum. Check it out!

  15. Don't leave any more links to full episodes or I wil ban you.

  16. Poll for Shinichi article open in Wiki Discussion subforum

  17. "Why anyone would allocate their time to be so disrespectful is beyond me." Beautiful.

  18. Featured the Mountain Villa Bandaged Man Murder Case article on the wiki. If you have anything to add or copyedit, that would be great!

    1. Akazora


      Bit late in saying this, but lord did that case freak me out when I first watched it back in the day.

  19. Dear wiki IP who makes minor edits on pages to point out we don't yet have certain character pictures: make an account and please upload them yourself! We are volunteers with lives, not picture uploading robots.

  20. And our first permaban of the spring season goes to yet another Indian spammer.

    1. Kjeldahl


      I apologise for the behaviour of my uncultured brethren.

    2. Balthazar Manfredie

      Balthazar Manfredie

      you are also half german

      but seriously, what up with folks from there spamming dcw. i even thought that hinata was indian

    3. Akazora


      Spring you say? It's already Friday?! I have been lied to...

      it's because the Jap->Chin->Eng translation of file 918-919 came out recently

    3. Balthazar Manfredie

      Balthazar Manfredie

      Thanks MT for telling me that 918 and 919 are out. I have been reading the manga from the beginnig to see where its diff from the anime, and i have to say that im kinda disappointed that the anime changed a lot of stuff.

    4. MeiTanteixX


      You're welcome! :) and you should thank Skye as well in tumblr for her appreciated work! ;)

  23. As promised a late case analysis has been posted in the spoiler section.

      A quick question: how can you know the beginning and end of a season?

      This question has just popped up in my head when I saw the beginning of a new season (#24).

      Thanks in advance ^_^

    4. Kirsch


      I don't think they really care. Unless you check the anime calendar or the DC wiki, you wouldn't know. They've ended on plenty of fillers, too.

  24. Why is it that when Conan slips while walking, he somehow ends up flying 5 feet above the ground upsidedown?

    1. Black Demon

      Black Demon

      It's a parody of a scene from Key of Life, but the character from that movie (who's also featured in this special) steps on a soap.

      That's really interesting!
