I was about to post that Gin and Vodka don't seem to wear their seat belts, but then I checked the revive opening and was shocked to discover Gin is indeed wearing his. I would have sworn they didn't, so now I am going to go off on a near pointless crusade to see if the MiB follow seatbelt laws. brb
In the manga
178: It's hard to tell if Gin (D) has his seatbelt on.
239: Naughty Gin (D). Vodka (FP) isn't clear enough to tell.
242: Gin (FP) and Vodka (D) seem to be breaking the laws.
382: Vodka (D) is wearing his. Unbelievable. Maybe it is because Gin isn't around to be a bad influence on him.
419: Akai (D) is belted.
420: The chapter quality stinks but I think Akai (D) is wearing his. It's hard to tell.
421: Yep Akai is wearing his. A cookie for him.
429: It is hard to tell but Gin (D) may be wearing his for once, but it's the same chance those are just folds in his coat. Vodka (FP), maybe not.
431: Vermouth (D) as Araide is wearing hers. Jodie (D) and Conan as Ai (FP) wear theirs as well.
432: Same as 431
434: Gin (D) continues his lawless streak. Vermouth doesn't put hers or Conan's on when she flees but I can't count it against her. Agasa (D) wears his. I can't tell about G and V the second time we see them...
500: A gold medal for Hidemi (D). Conan (FP) and Agasa (D) wear theirs. A fail for Gin (FP) and Chianti (D).
501: Unchanged from 500, except that I think Korn (FP) is not wearing his either.
502: Good going James Black (D)! A star for Jodie too (FP).
503: With his black outfit, it is hard to tell about Vodka (D) but I doubt it. Gin (FP) fails. James Black (D) has his on but Jodie removes hers so she can train a gun on Kir which is a reasonable excuse I suppose.
504: It's too hard to tell.
553: None of the Org on the road are wearing theirs. Vodka (D), Gin (FP), Chianti (D), Korn (FP).
555: Vodka (D) seems to be wearing his while his bro Gin (FP) isn't.
596: Jodie (D) and Conan (FP) for shame! James Black (D) though wins a gold medal.
598: Kusuda Rikumichi (D) nope, Akai (D) nope, Conan (FP) nope - but James Black and jodie seem to be wearing theirs.
599: Vodka (D), Gin (FP), and Vermouth (BP) are unbuckled
601: Camel (D) is belted as is Jodie (FP)
602: Vodka (D) and Gin (FP) are breaking the law.
603: Camel (D) is belted and Akai (D) has his on to, but Conan (FP) doesn't seem to. Bad role model, Conan.
605: I can't tell for sure but I'm going to bet Vodka (D) and Gin (FP) aren't wearing theirs. I can't tell if Kir is.
609: Not sure about G or V in this chap.
700: Neither Vodka (D) nor Gin (FP) are wearing a seatbelt.
779: Jodie (FP) and James (D) superbly secure their seats to their seats.
797: Amuro (D) believes safety is central to a healthy evil detective lifestyle.
799/800: Okiya (D) as Agasa (FP) safely strap themselves in, but naughty little Ai in the back appears not to be wearing hers.
799/800: Amuro (D) and Ran (FP) are buckled up. Amuro had to tell Kogoro to put his on so he wouldn't wash the car windows in his own blood.
811: Okiya (D) buckles up, but Conan and Haibs in the back do not.
818: Gin (FP) and Vodka(D) seem to have forgotten their belts on their trip to some probably important location. Lately, we seem to only ever catch them driving, never eating out or anything... Maybe they live in the Porsche because the recession means Tokyo rent is too damn high?
827: Amuro (D) is buckled up!
852: Amuro (D) and Vermouth (FP) choose to comply with the law.Anime
129: Too hard to tell about Gin (D). He is in shadow.
176: Gin (D) and Vodka (D) add to their criminal records.
178: That's a negative on the seat belts for Vodka (D) and Gin (FP).
310: Vodka (D) seems to be wearing his...
336: Akai (D) is not wearing his despite doing so in the manga chapter...
338: Shuu (D) is good this time around.
345: That's a seatbelt for Shuuichi (D), Conan (FP), and Jodie (D). Pretty sure Gin (D) and Vodka (FP) are once again breaking the law.
425: Kir (D), Agasa (D), Conan (FP), Jodie (D & FP), James Black (D) are legal. Gin (FP), Vodka (D), Chianti (D), and Korn (FP) all are illegal. Vermouth (BP) isn't wearing hers. Jodie (BP), and Ai (BP) doesn't wear theirs in the backseat. Jodie (FP) doesn't take hers off to aim her gun at Kir this time.
464: Vodka (D) is buckled up. Gin (FP) is questionable. I can't tell if the straps on Chianti (D) and Korn (FP) are their sniper rifle packs or belts. The belts go opposite the usual configuration and they don't match the manga.Ai wa te saguri no kurayami no naka de
opening: Akai (D) wears his.
495: Jodie (D) and Conan (FP) get gold stars. James Black (D) gets one to, but Jodie is wearing hers even as a back passenger! Conan though as a back passenger seems not to have his on though.
497: Hell has frozen over! Vodka (D) and Gin (FP) are wearing one! This was not in the manga! Kusuda Rikumichi (D), Akai (D), and Conan (FP) are legal too. James Black (D) and Jodie (FP) are buckled up as well. Even Akemi (D) has hers on. There must have been some sort of edict to the animators to up seatbelt compliance.
498: Camel (D and BP
) and Jodie (D and FP) are sporting their safety.
499: Camel (D), Kir (FP), Akai (D), and Conan (FP) wear their belts. Anime Vodka (D) and Gin (D) continue to belt themselves as well defying their paper counterparts.
500: Gin (D) bad. Camel (D), Hidemi (FP), Akai (D), and Conan (FP) good.
504: Kir (D) is legal. Akai (D) isn't wearing his belt. Maybe that's to be expected since he needs to scramble eventually, but he is only on the way there... Jodie (D) buckles up.
579: Gin (FP) and Vodka (D) are safely secured while driving. Gin took his off while parked.
651: Jodie and James buckle up on their way to rescue Camel.
671: Everyone in the Amuro's (D) car seems to be buckled, even Ran and Kogoro in the backseat. It isn't possible to tell if Conan is buckled though.
672-673: Okiya (D) and Agasa (FP) demonstrate how to put on a seatbelt. It is unclear if Haibara got the message.
674: Okiya(D) takes off his seatbelt and ties it around the door handle to stabilize himself while shooting, something that wasn't in the manga. Since Kogoro (BP) was already wearing his seatbelt, instead of telling him to fasten it like in the manga, Amuro (D) tells him to stay buckled and sit tight.
684-685: Okiya (D) and Conan (BP) and Ai (BP) wear their seatbelts.
701: Gin (FP) and Vodka (D) are both strapped down.
