Well, I guess it's time to finally watch this.
-"Whoa!" The Detective Boys react to the passable CG
-Ok, if this movie ends with Agasa actually flying with a drone to save the day like that, this movie gets at least a 9/10 by default.
-Wasn't Casino Tower in the GCN Pokemon games?
-Ok, I was kidding but that part of the floor looks straight out of a Pokemon arena...
-4 minutes in, that's explosion #1
-I wonder what sci-fi series they took these graphics from
-"There's one member of the organization that's shrouded in mystery." Anokata? Rum? To some extent Gin?
-This guy was just in the episodes I watched, how about that?
-Wait, Kogoro? What?
-The Triforce Heroes of drones!
-Agasa's Quiz is an impressive running gag to use so consistently despite probably no one actually liking or particularly caring about it
-Quizzes are the number one threat to drones
-Kogoro is too dumb to be responsible, of course
-I mean, in theory Amuro should be your adversary. He's literally working for the people who lead to you being a kid, even if he's doing so as a spy.
-Man, where's Phoenix Wright when you need him?
-"I've lost all of them
" Well we're screwed. It's Japan, I guess I shouldn't be surprised...
-Amuro is way too suspicious and not talking to be the cause of all of this, obviously.
-That Amuro's a spy!
-Entirely translated document ftw
-That Amuro's grocery shopping!
-Completely randomly and undeservedly paranoid Azusa is probably the most interesting she's ever been
-That Conan's now a spy!
-Amuro will risk breaking this guy's arm just to take a bug he could've told him about because he shouldn't be so god damn careless. I like it.
-WTF? All the electronics have exploded. What is going on?
-Y'know, normally they just try to blow up a building or two. This is like a full-on attack against a whole city's electronics. That's impressive at the very least.
-Wait OMG wasn't that episode about a kettle or...uh...something that was bizarrely connected to the internet? I completely forgot about the tie-in episode until literally right now.
-Pfft, please don't tell me that was the entire relevance of Shinichi in this movie (outside of the inevitable 3rd act calling out for him scene, of course). "Shinichi isn't helping my dad
" and then later "Shinichi is helping my dad
-"I think she might be suspicious" Wow for a smart guy, you're sometimes a bit slow, Conan.
-Amuro jumped off the railing, and is now next to the river with two broken legs.
-Nazu is everyone's favorite Opening
-"I have one chance to make something visually interesting and god damn am I gonna take it!"
-Well that person's dead
-Man, now I want a Conan skateboarding video game.
-I think this revenge might be going a bit too far
-No one wants Takagi in the picture XD
-Oh the police. I assumed it was the Casino Tower again.
-I will say, I was certain they were gonna do a lot with the actual location of that tower and they tricked me by doing...nothing with that.
-"I'm going to bring the dead back to life." Um...Amuro...I'm not sure how zombies will be able to help us. They only know how to call the police, not how to save them!
-The drone immediately crashes
-Oh wait. Ok, so maybe I will get the climax I assumed we would get.
-"I never thought i would be you" Same here
-Yeah, I kinda figured that would be the plot twist, that he was actually alive the whole time.
-"What a crazy idea!"
-"These four kids will save Japan" is the most anime thing this anime series has ever done.
-I'll be honest, I feel like the movie practically ended 5 minutes ago but there's like 20 or so minutes left...
-Yeah, obviously the movie wasn't over! Stop pretending it was!
-DRIVING ON A TRAIN!
-So does that mean if Amuro left the country, he'd be in a long distance relationship with Japan?
-"Zero" ha, I get it
-This is not the kind of music I expected for the credits
Well that was a very interesting viewing experience. For like the first half or so of this, I was actually gonna call this one of the more solid Conan movies. Not like the best or most exciting but one that was very easy to watch, knew what it was doing and kept up the drama as well as a movie series where none of the stakes matter beyond its own story reasonably could. But I felt like the last 1/3 really dragged it down a bit. It was stupid in a way that didn't necessarily fit the rest of the movie and was less fun than it should've been. And at points it really dragged as well, the last 1/3 felt as long as the first 2/3 tbh. I guess it was also disappointing they spent so much time building towards a trial only for it to not even happen, they spent a lot of time on that.
I guess it was good, and it wasn't even close to the bad ones but...I feel mildly let down at the end, which is a real shame. Oh well...
