MeiTanteiX ninja'd me but I'll post this nevertheless to have a copy in DCTP as well:

At a Q&A session in 2005:

Q.黒の組織について?
Q: "Can you tell me more about the Black Organization?"
A.正式名称はある。言うとボスの名前がバレちゃうので言えません
A: "There is an official name. But if I say it the Boss' name will be revealed so I cannot tell you"

From an interview in the January, 2006:

実はボスの名前は既に原作のどこかにでている。捜してみて下さい
"Truth is... The Boss' name has already appeared somewhere in the manga. Try to search for it if you may"

So it should've shown up before File 551 ("Nail and Snake"), File 8 of Volume 53

Interview in June the 30th, 2012

Q: コナンに登場する犯罪組織の黒幕は、男ですか、女ですか
Q: "The mastermind of the criminal organization that shows up in Conan. Is it a man? Is it a woman?"
A:「それは言えない。でも、今までにフルネームで登場している人です」
A: "I can't tell you that. But it's someone who's already appeared with their full name"

So we can sum it up like this:

1) The BO has an official name. Knowing that will allow us to know who the boss is
2) He/she has already appeared before File 551
3) And he/she has appeared with their full name: it's not a nameless background character

And that of "Haibara would be shocked" is from an unconfirmed, non-Japanese source so its validity is questionable. It would be better to not to take it too seriously until it can be proven if it's official or not.

I've always wondered, since Shinichi/Conan has worked so close with the police there has been a few cases where they've checked his fingerprints, wouldn't they realise that Shinichi's and Conan's fingerprints are identical?

And another thing that I find funny is how Haibara had lived in America for a while but still didn't realise that the word Vermouth is Berumutto lol.

@ginandjuice:

The police don't need to go comparing peoples' fingerprints unless an investigation demands it.

The only time Conan's fingerprints have been relevant in a police investigation was in the Shiragami - sama case when Heiji asked the village's policeman to compare a knife's handle fingerprints with those in the charm he once lent to Conan: of course that the policeman didn't know whose fingerprints they were, he just had to compare them.

When Akai was "killed" Jodie brought the cellphone Conan had lent her to the police so they could double-check the burnt body's fingerprints with those of the phone to see if it was Akai: it actually was Kusuda Rikumichi but they didn't know the owner of them, they just compared the two sets to see if they matched. They knew Conan's fingerprints were in the phone too but they didn't pay attention to them, they just compared them to the ones in the database and that's it.

And Haibara didn't react to Vermouth when Conan mentioned the name to her because he used the English reading. Ran also read it in English as well.

Japanese use the German reading of "Wermut" to refer to Vermouth. Haibara was used to that reading and didn't know the English reading.

@Spimer yeah I was just thinking that when you try to add a new set of fingerprints to the database it might come up "these already exist blabla" but I suppose I was wrong.

And I get that but if you're half British half Japanese and lived in America surely you should know that Vermouth means Berumotto even if it's different pronouncation, just a thought!

Well, Haibara has said several times she doesn't know much about alcoholic drinks and maybe she never bothered to learn the English spelling of "vermouth". More like she didn't want to have anything to do with her, we've seen how much she fears her.

Regarding Conan/Shinichi's fingerprints... Maybe they're not even in the database to begin with? Normal citizens don't need to record them unless it's necessary for the passport or something like that, I think. I could be wrong, though.

For example: here in Spain you're required to record yours when you renew your identity card so that you can use that to access the electronic ID card but I dunno how it's like in Japan.

Does anyone think Takagi ever wondered about what Conan said in the bombing case when he was stuck in the Tokyo Tower Elevator box with him.
When he said "Who are you?"
Conan was as if ready to answer him. I wonder if it's ever bugged him ???

OR TAKAGI ALREADY KNOWS AND HE'S ANOKATA >:D >:D Just ignore that last statement ;D
Or maybe Conan has secretly told him but it hasn't been shown for whatever reason? Could that be a possibility?

On a similar note, its only Akai who knows about Conan's true identity right? Camel, James and Jodie has never questioning how smart he is and willingly takes orders from him, makes me wonder if they know as well. But officially they don't know right?
I started reading Detective Conan as a kid, I loved every part of it even when I didn't understand the science or logic behind a case. Now as an adult, it's bitter sweet knowing the series has lasted this long, because I am still surprised at what Gosho has to over but sad knowing soon a big part of my life will come to an end. I'm glad to know there are people out there who love this series as much as I do and is willing to lose sleep just to discuss the intricate plot.

Gosho said in an interview that Takagi thinks that Conan is a bright boy, but doesn't suspect him one bit. I think a possible Takagi suspicion arc was probably put on the USS Abandoned Plotlines along with the two FBI Agents in the movie studio case.

Camel, James and Jodie don't know. When Yukiko slips in the Scarlet Epilogue and calls Conan "Shin-Conan-kun", Camel and Jodie are just confused by that appellation (with Jodie even thinking "Shin-Conan-kun?"), while Akai as Subaru smiles knowingly. They also don't know that Haibara is Shiho Miyano (based on James' retelling of Akais undercover operation during Clash), unlike Akai ofc, who knows about Haibara's true identity as well.

Conan said he'll tell Takagi in the afterlife I'm pretty sure so that 'plotline' should have ended there if there ever was one.

No. DCTP stopped fansubbing years ago because of a "cease and desist" request by FUNimation.

Therefore, it is forbidden to talk about fansubs on this community or ask where to find them. Posting links to them is also forbidden.

What was the name of that restaurant from "The Suspects are the Passionate Couple"?
明智 ナンシー
"Ey, babe, I found five dollahs in the bottom of a dumpsta somewhere. Lemme treat you to some McDonald's and then we can head on over to my place, how 'bout dat?"
Spoiler:
My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
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.

"Italian Aska", probably named after its owner, Teiya Asuka.

Is no one going to transcribe Gosho's Q&A in Singapore? It's quite important.

Spoiler:
He confirmed that Akai and Akemi are cousins. And the fan who asked the question screamed "Nooooooo" lol xD
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. ;)

We lack a clear audio source to uses as basis for the transcript. And we'll do so once we have access to it.
