Episode 878: The Blind Spot in the Changing Room (Part One)
-Not even kidding here, I didn't notice this magician thing going on with Sera until the anime explained it right now. I think at least one of them was from when Bourbon had properly been revealed but then Gosho awkwardly put Sera focused stuff before the end of the Bourbon arc for no apparent reason. While Gosho will probably never top "forget the plot exists for a year and a half", "wait nearly 2 years to end the Bourbon arc after the last cases where Bourbon was the real focus" is kinda close.
-Ok, waiting a second to show she was talking to Sera and Sonoko was actually kinda funny. I was gonna ask "why does she want Conan's opinion on this?"
-Ran and Sera both specifically looked at her boobs. Like tilted their heads to do so.
-"Sonoko-san, a woman must keep her hips warm."
-"A typical japanese man" ALL JAPANESE MEN ARE DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE WARMTH OF THEIR GIRLFRIENDS' HIPS! How...specific of them?
-For a second I thought it was weird that they showed Sera wearing so little, considering how much they don't show in the anime anymore, but that is the least fanservice-y, least sexy thing ever. Ran in a sweater would seem more sexualized by comparison.
-Conan has the strangest Nam Flashbacks
-"Nope, I've already had my fill" pffft
-I've determined, unquestionably, that the single worst part of Detective Conan cases is the parts where the asshole one-off character/s show up to be assholes. Easily. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
-"I don't know what's going on, but I'm staying out of that." Conan, please stick to your word on this.
-Nooooo...you can't point out that her dying is the cliche and then just do the cliche. STOP!
-I've also determined that child Shinichi and Ran need to appear more, so that's good
-This is not a favorite of mine so far. Between asshole characters we will never see beyond this case and some non-attempt at fanservice, maybe(?), this was kind of a disaster. At least for me. Kinda of a shame, as the recurring characters and plot I liked as per the usual and the case seems like an interesting idea at the very least. But the bad parts of this were just obnoxious and a reminder that this series will be on long after we're all dead.
