Talk:Kogoro in the Bar

From Detective Conan Wiki

Reference to film?[edit]

Hi, I'd like to know whether the title of this case is a reference to a 2011 Japanese hardboiled mystery film The Detective Is in the Bar, since in Japanese, the two titles are remarkably similar (小五郎はBARにいる for this episode, 探偵はBARにいる for the movie). In addition, in the manga, each case chapter's title starts with 探偵はBARで事件に. Thoughts? Glacierfairy (talk) 07:03, 28 May 2014 (CEST)

EDIT: I just realised the featured detective for Volume 81 is the protagonist for the aforementioned film itself, which to me is very suggestive of an intentional reference indeed. Glacierfairy (talk) 07:10, 28 May 2014 (CEST)
Yeah, that definitely sounds like it. It could also be a reference to the original novel which the film was adapted from, or perhaps both. --- Black Demon 04:00, 29 May 2014 (CEST)
Ok, I will include it into the episode page under a trivia section then. Thanks! Glacierfairy (talk) 08:07, 31 May 2014 (CEST)
