Ah, so that's how much she's saving DC for you, huh?
Antiyonder wrote:Honestly I can appreciate if there are fans who appreciate the series as a whole as it currently is, but I don't think there's any shame in being critical, nor do I think one should be shamed for having some criticism.
Criticism doesn't equal hate, and liking/loving something or even someone sometimes means being able to point out the flaws of the subject of their affection.

Antiyonder wrote:For one thing with decent writing, a rarely changing series can still work and still have a good share of creativity. Everything from the first chapter to the Vermouth arc arguably succeeds for the most part in this regard.

DCUniverseAficionado wrote:So everything since the Cell Phone arc hasn't? Or just hasn't been as good? How come?
Theoretically, someone must be a good or even great enough writer to maintain the status quo and yet keep people hooked and not want to just walk away after nearly 1000 Files. So I suppose Gosho's limit, for you, was nearly 450 Files.
Antiyonder wrote:If any thing I feel the criticism of the series to be even more so valid if only because maybe Gosho made a mistake in adding a serialized elements to begin with. I mean if it's a story he wanted to tell, fine. But if it's out of fear that the audience wouldn't follow a pure mystery series with episodic cases only? I don't know, but Simpsons has lasted up to now with no end insight with just comedic stories and it has 4 year on the manga. And even to this day, there still seem to be many Conan fans who are more invested in the episodic mysteries to the point of not being bother with the storyline being stretched out to decades.
So maybe Conan should have just been a child prodigy with the whole continuity and storyline being jettisoned.

Many elements reappear and get mentioned later on. In the Nue case Heiji mentioned the Ebisu Bridge and the latest case was a follow-up on that. Everything the characters do even in the most irrelevant cases were build up from something.
