    My opinion on the series is nowhere near as harsh as some—after all, I'm still invested in the characters and what's going to happen, even after all this slow pacing.


    Well, the pacing is self-explanatory. The Bourbon arc took nearly seven years to complete, and it seems the Rum arc is going to beat even it out, in terms of length. Look at Kir—her appearance in this case is her first appearance since August 2009 (File 704).


    As for the narrative, it suffers due to the pacing—the longer it takes between BO cases, it decreases focus and leaves the readers languishing. What was once a more tight and compact narrative has been diffused and spread out more and more as Shinichi/Conan has found himself facing problems caused by people who should be his allies against the BO (Rei/Bourbon for the Bourbon arc, and Mary for the Rum arc). It leaves fans wondering if Shinichi/Conan and the BO are actually going to face off against each other, and even if there is going to be impact and/or resolution with even these longed-for BO cases.



    Well, once the series is over, at least we can start giving out series read/watch order guides so newcomers can have a better experience without the years of uncertainty and lag.

    amen to that

    any news when it will end

    What you mean with "narrative and pacing"? Can u give some examples? I agree with you with the direction the series took after Kir introduction.

    you are a really old member

    The quality, huh?

    The longer delays between files is better than Goshō making his health worse, but if you've got issues with the quality, I can't help you with that.

    I wish I could just ask Goshō questions about narrative, pacing, etc., so veteran fans (who don't approve of the direction this series has taken this past decade) could at least have an answer as to why he's executed things like this (that isn't a generic answer like, "he's lazy because success and money", because an answer like that just isn't interesting to me).


    i wish gosho well, but he dragged this thing for way too long

    i give naruto proops for knowing its way

    dc should have known as well

    Mine's the opposite I think. I feel like the reason why I feel so down all the time is due to me not just focusing on my self for now.


    Maybe...? Lol but hey. How's it going?


    @Kirsch Hey how's it going? Long time no see!


    OMM: Ahhh... hope I'm overthinking but my fear of abandonment is kicking in again. Are you just really sick as you're saying?

    not bad

    i manage broski

    Kitty Paw pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject, but wow. 


    Over the years, I've popped back in a couple of times just to see how the forum's doing. I don't think anybody's particularly proud of their early-teen years, but I had a lot of fun on here. DCW was always a cozy place to be. Like others have said, it's kind of sad to see how slow the traffic is nowadays, but it happens. I just hope our overlord (hello Maurice!) knows that we love our little corner of the world. Servers don't last forever and I'm sure the costs add up, but it's always nice to know my emo Dear Anonymous are currently still preserved on the interwebs!


    OMM: @Raki just caught up to all the DC manga today. And now she's updating me on spoilers. Goshoooooooooo

    Hey, there. Been a while. ^_^


    Well, this is what happens when yearly file/case output literally drops by half—and in spite of the Akai, Miyano and Morofushi info we've gotten since 2018 (and longer cases in general), Gosho seems to be in no rush to have the big arc confrontation case, so here we are. Volume 100 (Files 1,059–1,069) is not far off, but who knows how many more volumes will come after that.


    Suffice to say, once DC's all said and done, newcomers will be able to avoid any potential pacing pitfalls (provided they have a filler guide, of course).



    thanks for the update

    wish i could have contributed 

    but i gave up on DC
