    So if the Bourbon arc had ended before the "second half," would the series have avoided what you saw as its biggest decline, up to where we are, now?



    Well, DC's doing pretty well for itself for a 23 year old series. Some are even saddened (look at the crowd reaction to such a question during his Singapore Q&A) by the prospect of DC ending. So, certainly, a contingent of the fandom is going to leave, as the years go by, if they are of the opinion that not only is DC dragging, but its execution of such protraction is dragging.



    Underwhelming, basically?


    So there's not even a slight chance that, when Gosho finally does the climax, you'd actually get the feeling you'd get during the good old days of DC (94 or 97 to 03 to 07), again? To put it another way, do you think there's no way for him to live up to the expectation people will have for the finale, even if he brings his A+ game?


    Nah, it's fine—if anything, I'm the odd one out, in terms of how I type my posts. 

    I dont know. Maybe. If Gosho didnt take that way, then what way could he have taken. Other then dont do the Bourbon arc and go straight to RUM. Also i did notice that some of his cases there have been simillar to the cases he had done beffore (i posted that somewhere )

    And i get it. Its hard to come up a case. Im not gonna hold him for that.


    I do agree there

    Some will leave and come come back when news comes out that it is coming to an end like naruto. Some are here from start to finish. And also there are like new kids every day finding out about it and watching it, but might not liking where its going or love where its going.


    Yes,it is underwhelming to some degree.   

    He most likely will bring his A game and if it goes as great as one would hope then i would be somewhat happy. Not like i would gave been 4 years ago. But my love for it will go down even more as the years go by. 

    Also i would have wanted if things went with the BO a bit diff then the usual. And no one in the FBI questions why a kid was with them. He could have searched around in piscos personal life a bit. Its not like everyone he knew was BO, he must have talked to someone and let something slip. Make haibara tell you stuff. There could have been much more "creative" ways then what we have been accustomed to see.



    I find them neat and well organized     


  2. Totaly spies i think i have seen some episodes but cant remember. I will check it.

    And i have never watched danny ohantom or herd of

    I might just find something that i missed but it coukd be so good


    If you didnt kniw avatar has a sequel called the legend of korra

    So, basically, it started to be a drag in the late 780s, nearly 170 Files into the Bourbon arc... and then there was 100 more Files of you waiting for it to end. :wacko: Props to you for hanging in there that long.



    In your case, you have to deal with AOs, too—that's worse than someone who just reads the manga and/or just watches the adaptions of the manga cases. Even more props to you for hanging in there from Episode 509–Episode 655 (just under 150 episodes).



    You mean flaws/problems that are characteristic of/unique to Gosho?



    So the resolution of this "setting and setting" and "more mysteries" has just taken too long—it's likely the reveals won't be worth your waiting time, right?

    1. Well

     The, lets call it the first half of the arc, had like good bad good bad good bad stuff. So i could live with it. Not always something i liked but half and half was better then later on. Lets face it anything that lasts this long loses its magic. After and with Holmes where more of the bad, came then the video site and then came mmmmmh


    2. I used to love the AOs right up until the kir arc. Sure there have been some horrible ones but that could be overlooked (at that time).later on it was like do you even care. And i HATE THE ONES WITH ANIMALS. Not with goro, he is nice.


    3. Yes

    Cause if you do the same thing for over 20 years it gonna loose the crowd.

    And that was why i had a lot of love for Toriyama who did DB/Z. Cause he knew there was no point in going beyond Buu. It was so well done (and i like the buu saga cause it gave a decent ending for how long that great thing ladted). Dragon ball super is so bad. Its like lets make no sense whatsoever and put it out (just mi opinion).


    4. You know when you mom is making your favorite food and you are so happy (in my case meat pie) but it took longer to make for some reason. And when its served you, well lets face it you will eat it, but it doesnt teste like you thought it would.

    Thats how i feel. I still think he puts out good mysteries. But its not the same feel for it like it was before, in my case, bourbon. And RUM   is also the same. Granted there have been better thungs there but its the same. 


    Sorry bout this type of writing.

    The ohone is limited

    And that's what Antiyonder and I were discussing—how long can Gosho keep going like this until he starts losing people (though at least some would probably just take a break and come back, later)? This is a prime case of, "the stagnation did a lot of damage."


    So at what point in the Bourbon arc did you go, "God, this has stretched way too thin... when will this end?" Was there a specific point when this feeling started and then just built up from there, or did a certain Bourbon arc case bring such a thought about?



    i have read id 

    i have thought that for a long time as well


    So after the Kir arc, which i was satisfied with ( excluding the AOs which were bad mostly), i was waiting for big things. After the clash series i was like man things will start to get heated. OK, so hes setting thing for the next thing and setting and setting and more setting. Anyway, i didnt like Holmes revelation then there were a some bad  and some great/good afterwords, but if i had to pick like the definitive point ill chose after the deign of poison and illusion

    There were a lot of stuff i just found unnecessary and the AOs didnt help either. It took to long to. In short the arc was just like the previous one with some things polished. The RUM one is decent, well, its good, but it suffers the same problems as every other arc. But this long run is so long. I mean you would think that after all these years more mysteries would have been reveled, but he keeps piling them on ( its unsatisfying ). 


  5. A bit late to the party.

    RUM arc has been a step up from the Bourbon arc for me.

    But what, i guess, will always be the minus in this manga/anime is how long it is. I dont get to enjoy DC like i once had. Its greatness is stretched thin after so much...i have to say unnecessary things. Other stuff that i complain about everyone knows so not to go in to detail.

    I was hoping that after Kir he was going for the end and thats it.

    After RUM he has no other way to go but the BO/boss arc, it just has to go that way.

    And i would love if we didnt get Conan in every episode or chapter.

    I would love to see a Eri, Vermouth, Chiba case where they do it without conan being present case or an MPD case, even a day in the BO. 

    Its like every time i watch the police is incapable of solving anything and i know they are smarter then seen in the show.

    Also, the decline for me started in the Bourbon arc, i dont know, i guess i was disappointing in the truth of that the end wasnt coming any time soon

    True, but that doesn't mean one should instantly dismiss criticism either.  At the very least give one's critique a thorough reading and if you find it's disagreeable, then directly rebuke it rather than just ignoring or dismissing outright.

    You dont have to tell me twice

    Its just that i have seen where this is not the case

    A lot of times


    The name of this topic is soooo....

    Does anything deserve to be called the greates ( speaking ofcours about stuff like DC )

    It all your personal preference



    Im not disputing that DC wont down as one of the best and a clasic given its looooong run and to your point not adventure themed

    But to me, and i do love DC  a lot and think of ot as one of my favorites, its strengths are also its weaknesses

    One person did it in practically one day, and neither English nor Japanese is their native language.


    And, at times, its no worse than:



    One is more likely to have grammatical issues like that when English isn't one's native language—that's just the way of things, especially in a solely text-based format.

    the way i write is my choice

    we are not in school grading this stuff, not to come of rude or anything. I have been watching friends lately and picked up some chandler stuff


    its not the translation that bothered me cause i can understand  DC japanese to some degree since its always the same old story

    what bothered me was the speed of the subs or sometimes they werent there to begin with and that throws you off

    Really? That's interesting. I remember when I used to enjoy the DC movies, especially the earlier ones. 

    here is hope for 21

  8. so i have sat down at watched it

    its a dry movie for me

    they spent too long in what ever tropical aquarium you want to call it

    no kogoro :(

    curacao was great

    RUM is left to the imagination

    gin seemed somewhat crazy

    recycled M13

    ran was near danger not in danger 

    nice team up between akai, amuro and conan

    its not that i dislike action in DC but the action, in lets just go with this movie, is so not even scifi possible 

    how folks survived is a mystery more then the mystery the movie provided

    DBs were weak

    haibara was good

    i guess life in the BO is back to normal after this

    matsuda got aroung, nice

    man, can they fight and do stunts here



  9. the refs suck

    they made like a bunch of stupid mistakes

    still you cant blow a 14pt lead

    play brutal D in the 4th

    kyrie sucks without lebron

    he cant beat anyone

    and this is a testament to how great lebron really is 


    man did he dunked on him


    but before he got a T...for dunking...wtf

    but that last play should have been a foul

    its not like last year KD didnt get called for a less then this one, the 2 FTs  that iggy made for OT

    i really really hate the refs in games like these

    i think like green and someone got tangled below the rim and the ref there called it but went to the one at the center line to ask what did you see

    i think warriors are talent vise better but in their heads they are weak

    and most of those TOs are zazas fault

    just catch the damn ball

    Just for comparison, what is a manga case where they were annoying?

    i didnt like them in the blogger case, three first discoveries , im not sure on taiko meijin case. 

    it seems that im forgetting fast 

    i know i didnt like them in that kite flying case. 

    sorry my memorie is not what it once was regarding DC

    its not that i think they are a waste of time

    maybe this comes from a lot of bad AOs with them, so the line gets blurry

    there are a lot of episodes where i find them charming



  11. Here is the thing

    Im all for resting players like every 10th-15th game depending on the flight sched.

    The guys feel tired and pain. And do folks realize how much training in between there is. They are entertainment vut still human. There is no reason to push beyond that point and get hurt.

    Its sad that the fans wont be able to see them but what you gonna do.

    Im still waiting for gsw to rest their players

    And they should


    D is not looking good

    They should bring in kobe when they come back to LA for the long HS 

    Show them at least mam to man D

    But the future is bright

    Gad the lakers sign KD there wouldnt be any probs like this

    He could close the game


    Kid reminds of hakeem 

    Its just

    I hope he can play more minutes in the future and not be limitet cause of past injuries

    Which brings me to

    The lakers should trade deng for noel

    That would be sweet at this moment


    The east is all kinds of crazy right now

    1,2 are a clear guess

    But the rest...

    The knicks are worse then what i expected

    Noah isnt playing the way i thought he would and thats a drag for them

    But i do like the bucks

    Giannis is in 2 years the next lebron


    They should at some point give the bench more games 

    Get some d leaguers

    And rest the 4 superstars they have


    Have you seen the cba agreement

    My god

    Apsurd amount

    And to break up gsw

    Will anyone take a pay cut
