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**

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**

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**

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**

Detective Conan Vol. 62, File 646 (Series Part 1: “Village of Animosity”) – It has been quite some time since I have been this eager to read what happens next while reading DC (well, at least not since the recent Clash of Red and Black arc). Based on the chapter list titles in DCTP/Knightus’ site, I shall go with how he called it as the arc of “The Return,” which makes sense too since a certain someone is back… with a twist. I’ll give you 3 guesses who. ;) - **WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**

Just a quick, probably pointless babble to release some of the giddiness in me. Lol.

Um, well, at least it’s good news for me since I liked Nomiya and Yamada from H&C. ;P

This is the latest Black Organization arc in the Detective Conan anime (episodes 491 to 504). I think it’s a really good arc to kick off yet another new season. I’ve put watching DC “on-hold” for a while due to certain reasons, but I occasionally watch a few episodes in bulk now and then. I’ve been continuously reading the manga, so it’s really not much of a loss. Besides being a fan of the mystery genre, Sherlock Holmes, and DC itself, there are three main reasons why I’ve been following DC regularly: (1) Black Organization – I want to see how Conan takes down the BO with the help of the FBI and CIA; (2) Ran, Shinichi/Conan, Ai/Sherry – I want to see Conan become Shinichi once again and reunite with Ran. I want to see Ai become Sherry again and have her own happy ending; (3) Takagi x Sato – I want to see them get married! Seriously, these two have had the most progress story-wise in the DC world, even though they’re side characters. ^_^

So basically, significant episode arcs involving the BO are the ones I totally watch, followed by Ran x Shinichi (like the Desperate Revival arc), and Takagi x Sato (Metropolitan Police Detective Love Story arc). Heiji appearing in several episodes is something to watch as well.

Ahem. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that this year, I’ve been pulled back into watching DC weekly because of this “Clash of Red and Black!” story arc. If it’s going where I think it’s going, and judging from the preview of ep. 495, the next series of events would be the one I’ve been dying waiting for to be animated from the manga. Oh, I think it’s gonna be really good.

Episodes 491-494 covered manga files 585-590 from Vol. 56-57. Episodes 495-500+ will probably cover manga files 595-609 from Vol. 57-59, which will air on 02/11, 02/18, 02/25, 03/03, 03/10, and 03/17/2008 (maybe even throughout April if this arc goes beyond the 500th episode, which I think is more likely to happen).

Speaking of these volumes, I’ve read and re-read files 595-609 multiple times. :D I’m eagerly anticipating the next BO arc that will deal where this series of events left off. A lot of theories and hypotheses are swirling in the DC fanbase. Naturally, I have my own suspicions too. ** WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**
