DC-ch-700_00

Detective Conan [Vol. 67?], Files 700 to 704 (The “Target Located” arc) – Been holding out on posting this one since it’s a 5-part series about  the “red shirt mystery.” Based on the chapter list titles in the DCTP site, I shall go with how they called it as the “Target Located” arc. This post tackles all 5 parts of the story, so it’s a bit long. Pardon me if I didn’t care much about the red shirts case because I was way more concerned about the Black Organization (BO) aspect of the story… The mystery surrounding Okiya/Bourbon/Akai continues! Please proceed with caution: **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**

DC-ch-699_00a

Detective Conan [Vol. 67?], File 699 (“Tomorrow is there…”) – This is a one-part chapter mainly about a Detective Boys case, and also tackles (but just a wee bit) the mysterious person who looked like Akai in the previous “Red Robbery” arc (files 677-679). This chapter also serves as a brief introduction to the next chapters (files 700-704) involving the Black Organization (BO) and the FBI. As usual, please proceed with caution: **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**

Another season, another OP/ED themes post. It’s for Spring 2009 this time. Quite a few good tunes this season. As usual, please note that this list of songs is pretty much subjective. It’s listed as “Top 5″ ranked according to my preference, followed by randomly listed titles as “special mention.”

~ Format :: “Song title” by band/artist (OP#/ED# – anime series title)

Detective Conan Vol. 65, Files 677 to 679 (The “Red Robbery” arc) – I have a couple of other drafts regarding the DC manga, but I just had to post this one first even if it’s a later chapter. Really, I just had to. Why? Because it’s a Black Organization/FBI-related arc with my favorite FBI agent possibly involved!!! ~Booyah! Oh, and once again, please proceed with caution: **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**

Another last-minute season preview from me (or is it?). Heh. So, here’s a rough list of anime that will be airing this Spring 2009. I might have missed a few others, but either way, here’s the information that I’ve been able to gather (listed in alphabetical order, by month). Some series will start airing in March, May or June, while most will be in April. As usual, batch lists of my first impressions will follow when the subs are released.

To the Spring 2009 anime preview list we go!

*Edit: (04/02/2009) Updated some air dates, including La Corda D’Oro ~secondo passo~ special episode 2.

I briefly mentioned Okiya and “Bourbon” in my previous post about the Clash of Red and Black arc. This time around, let’s have a closer look on these mysterious characters. Episodes 509-511 covered manga files 622-624 from Vol. 60, and files 638-640 from Vol. 61, which are somewhat part of the Black Organization arc. I say “somewhat” because I’m not sure about who this new BO member is exactly (codename: Bourbon). Naturally, theories about the identities of Okiya and Bourbon are all over the DC fanbase. For the purpose of simplicity in this post, I shall refer to it as “the Okiya arc” and subcategorize it as part of the BO arc. ** WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**

McDonald’s Philippines will be having Detective Conan as part of the Happy Meal until July 21! I have no idea what the toy item actually is, although it doesn’t look like a toy per se. Based on the little photo (see thumbnail) in the local McDonald’s site, it looks like a booklet thingy containing puzzles or something like that. It says there are 6 premiums to collect: (1) Mystery of Reflection, (2) Challenges from Conan, (3) Twisted Lens Mystery, (4) Secret in the Mirror, (5) Detective Boys’ Mission, and (6) Shadows of the Truth.

Anyway, I’d probably buy one or a couple of it, depending on what the DC “toy” is. I asked three branches in Makati about it today but they still have Kung Fu Panda figures as part of their Happy Meal. I’ll check again tomorrow after work, and then I’ll just edit this post when I manage to get my hands on it.

EDIT: (07/05/2008.) Okay, I finally managed to get my hands on it! I bought 2 spaghetti Happy Meals to go and chose the green one (Challenges from Conan) and the blue one (Shadows of the Truth). They were pretty cool. I took some photos with my cell phone’s camera, and here they are.

Detective Conan Vol. 63, File 654 (Series Resolution: “Deduction Answer”) – Since I wrote an entry regarding the beginning of “The Return” arc, I think it makes sense to follow it up with an entry regarding the end of the arc, no? ;) Oh, and I should add, just for good measure: **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**
