Rei just need to have phone call with Kazami (for whatever reason), while Ayanokoji needs a special reason to get involved in Tokyo. I don't think that Gosho is gonna setup the Kyoto case in this current one(to the point that a Kyoto officer will get a involved).

My speculation regarding him is that he is a one-case-only guy that wanted that last plushy of Higo, but Haibara got it before him, so he has been trying to steal it from her backpocket, but then it accidentally got swapped with the dark-skinned boy's Sanada plushy(hence him waiting in lost and found for it to be returned). Since it seemed to only be sold online after that last plushy, that silhuette guy was probably in a hurry for some reason and couldn't wait for a delivery.


Spoiler:
True—Gosho could really introduce him in any case with Rei/Toru in it. I also wonder—if Ryusuke appeared alongside his plush, will Takahiro appear alongside his (although it must be noted he already technically made his debut in 885–887/765–766, and then appeared again in 925–927/822–823, even those both his appearances were only brief TV ones)?

Eh, I get it, but I'm still gonna hope that there's more to it than that.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”

Spoiler:
Kazami and Sanada would be my two main candidates, since the fact that Sanada's name has been dropped could easily have been foreshadowing his involvement(plus, maybe he's also meant to fit in the "full of handsomes" description in the AC hint), but yeah, because of his past cameos, I'm gonna take Gosho's words seriously and see it as a "manga debut", rather than a character introduction(in which Sanada gets his first name box). Sanada could still appear though, but probably not as the guy that Gosho teased in AC.

Ayanokoji is more expected to appear earliest at the beginning of Kyoto case setup(File 1000, if the current one is a three-parter,
or File 999, if the current one is a two-parter).

Best Soliloquy ever (998)

It really saddens me to see people continuing to talk about this series as if its dying or that they are losing interest in it. This has been one of my favorite series' since I first heard of it in 2005 and I have never looked back. I really hope that I can find someway to contribute to the community even if it's just random crack theories and looking things up for people who can't find the information they need.

I'm not sure...
Can we get someone who didn't do a Japanese --> Chinese --> French --> English translation? Some important context may have been lost there.

I think that third dot in Your translation is wrong, and means something else than what You translated. I'm pretty sure I already seen it in some other translation, and it was translated differently. Care to check again if it really means what You made it to mean?

Apparently, one dot was lost during translation. Because of that, we missed the reveal of the boss' identity.

Semi-serious question. When you read "..." out loud, what sound do you make, if any? An inhale, an underbreath sound, "dots", "dot dot dot"?

Not a single sound. In Polish a single dot . is called kropka (a dot), a colon : dwukropek (a twodot), and an ellipsis … wielokropek (a multidot). Pay attention that both dwukropek and wielokropek (despite de facto being plural) in Polish are considered masculine singular, and that's why the English translations are ending with a "dot" word, and not "dots". Their plural forms are: kropki, dwukropki and wielokropki.

Most of times an ellipsis is used either to skip some text or to force the reader to add the rest of the words and finish the sentence (to break a thought). In the case of the former, we either rather say that some text has been skipped or we are not mentioning that ellipsis at all because its existence there is irrelevant. In the case of the latter, we also skip it, because the intonation of the sentence itself suggest that either we are not going to finish what we started to say, or we already said everything we were about to say.

This is how I see the ellipsis.

The Japanese tend to write sighs as ellipsis from what I’ve seen. I don’t vocalize it.
