Spoiler:
Are those preschool scenes from "Futari no Byoshin" supposed to be from the upcoming adaptation of that manga case with young Shinichi and Ran?

Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

@Swagnarok: I think it would be best if you enclosed your question in a spoiler box to avoid spoiling any other users who only watch the anime and don't want to be spoiled about upcoming episodes. Regarding your question...

Spoiler:
Yes, those scenes are indeed from the kindergarten case which is yet to be adapted into the anime.

@Spimer I see you have opened a thread for the said Q&A. Thank you! ^_^
DC has been an important part of my childhood, it's one of those shows that I watched as a kid.
I begin to take DC seriously in 2012 when curiosity of BO got the better of me. And I never regretted that. ;)

Hey guys i heard many times that in the introduce case from Bourbon people say that Bourbon made a wrong conclusion on purpose to test Kogoro. But i cant find any scene where it proofs it that he wanted to test kogoro. Is it true that he wanted to test Kogoro in the scene and he would have let Banba go outside so his alibi would be destroyed?

Well, he had obviously noticed the cake on Banba's shoes which was proof that he hadn't come out the bar and was acting in a way to make Kogoro be able to gather clues.

The way he provoked Banba to try to punch him and dodged him was to allow Kogoro to spot that and see if he would reach the same conclusion.

He didn't say anything when Banba was being led away because he was expecting Kogoro to react: if he was as good as a detective as he was said to be then he should bring the cake on the shoes as argument. If he didn't say anything then Amuro was surely going to conclude Kogoro wasn't that big of a deal in the end.

So yes, he was testing Kogoro. Even if he didn't explicitly say it his actions were a clear sign of it.

I don't agree. It is certainly true that Amuro didn't say anything when the suspect was about to unwittingly destroy the evidence that could exonerate him, but it's not clear whether Amuro purposely did that, or just didn't realise it. In the chapter, Amuro argues that Banba is the culprit and it can well be true that he believes that.

It seems too contrived to me to suggest that Amuro provoked Banba on purpose, so Kogorou could see the stains on the shoe. That would imply that Amuro was aware they are there before he actually got a look at them. Conan seems surprised when he sees the bottom of the shoe which tells me he didn't think about it before. Normally in this series, other people, even detectives, don't notice things before Conan does, with the possible exception of Yuusaku.

In my view, Amuro's deduction simply isn't right, and Conan is there to set the record straight. We've seen this on other occasions where Heiji or Sera got things wrong before being corrected by Conan.

In Sera's introductory case, there is the case to be made that she actually wanted to see Conan performing Sleeping Kogorou, so she purposely gave a solution she knew to be incorrect in order to force Conan to put Kogorou to sleep. That is subsequently backed up by many hints pointing towards her knowing Conan's identity even before her introduction to the series. I can see why she'd be interested in botching her own deduction.

In contrast, I don't see why Amuro would care about Kogorou. The reason he is there and ultimately sticks around is a perceived connection between Akai and Kogorou. I don't see why Amuro would have any interest in seeing whether Kogorou is a good or a bad detective.

We can't say for sure, so I guess it's a matter of opinion at this point.

IMO the following: A unknown Detective suddenly becomes famous as The Sleeping Kogorou. As Amuro might checkout why this happened, he might check out Kogorou. It is also possible that the BO might also want to investigate this as well in case he might become a threat.

I might be wrong, though.

Spoiler:
I recently watched 828. In this episode, it's revealed that Masumi has a scarf thingamajig labeled "Mary". Based on this, Conan deduces that the mystery girl living with Masumi is named Mary. It's been revealed also that Masumi's mother is named Mary. The Wiki has gone on to declare that the girl is Masumi's shrunken mother.
However, is there any solid evidence that the girl in question is this Mary person?

They look identical and Masumi calls the girl "Mama" as well, even in private situations. The girl in the hotel room also follows Shukichis career and is happy about his achievement without Masumi knowing anything about it.

Do you want to imply that the girl is an impersonator who went undercover as the fake shrunken mother of Masumi for some reason and the real mother is held captive by someone?

Uh, no, I'm thinking that Gosho might be trolling his readers.
So to be clear, those four things (extremely similar appearance, the scarf, being a fan of Shukichi Haneda, and the "mama" reference) are the only evidences of the girl being Mary?

Pretty much. And that the girl cares about Shukichis career without even Masumi knowing why the girl would be interested in shogi.
(Also, she looks identical apart from age, "Mama" is not a reference but the way Masumi addresses the girl and her mother in the flashback and the thing with the name "Mary" on it is a handkerchief and not a scarf)
