SDB stands for Super Digest Book and they are books that are released for every 10 volumes of the manga that come out. They collect details from the volumes and present them in summary form and compare them with past instances in the series. For example "60+" collects information from volumes 51-60 and examines it compared to the previous volumes. The sections in these books are "Data": collects information on the actual cases but doesn't spoil the conclusions, "Drama": describes instances of drama, "Love": tracks where characters are in their love stories, "Mystery": points out more information on some of the interesting cases of the volumes, and "Fun": has interviews with Gosho, questionnaires with Gosho, fan art, polls, and puzzles. This thread's purpose is to collect the translations of all of the questionnaires from the Fun section.
I noticed that all of the SDB translations are spread out across the community some in General Discussion, some here in Story Discussion, and some only in DCW forums. I wanted to try to centralize them to one spot to see what has been translated and what hasn't. Note: These translations were not done by me. They were collected from the mentioned places.

Q57: Gin's not going to really turn out to be a good guy, is he?

Q58: What do you think of the 'wall slam' technique that's popular in Shoujo manga lately? I'd like it if you did a 'wall slam' scene in Detective Conan. [A 'wall slam' (kabe don) is a situation 1) where a boy corners a girl by slamming his hand against a wall with his body over her, trapping her, usually in a romance scene; or 2) when someone gets so angry out of frustration that they want to punch a wall]
A: I've drawn Ran doing a 'telephone pole slam' on Shinichi before, actually...
Q59: I like black-skinned people. I really want Hattōri Heiji, Kyōgoku Makoto, and Amuro Tōru to appear together in the manga. If applying the tone is troublesome, you could just make two of them appear at the same time. Please, Aoyama-sensei!

Q64: I want to see a collaboration between Sera-chan and Hakuba-kun!
A: You do? How come? (laughs)
Q65: Were you the one to chose Noriko Hidaka as the voice actor for Sera, or is it a member of the production company who chose her?

A: She doesn't know.
Q68: Does Sera have a boyfriend?
A: No! But there is someone... (laugh)
Q69: Please tell me if there is anything surprising about Akai, Amuro, and Sera! (Q42 and Q69 are related.)
A: They're all tone deaf, or something (laughs) [Later on in the thread, someone clarifies that the original says オンチ in both cases, which in that context can mean anything from being tone deaf, or completely hopeless with directions. Gosho never used kanji to write that word, so it could mean that they're all horrible at something.]
Q70: Does Akai-san have a gun he really likes? He’s always using the one he stole from a Black Org member… When he shot Gin with a rifle, what kind of rifle was it?
A: I should ask my assistant Yamagishi.
Q71: Akai-san has repeated that he would "give his life to protect someone". Is it a foreshadowing for his death?
A: Stay tuned!

Q75: Does Shuuichi Akai have back pain?
A: Why? (laughs)
Q76: If you went on a date with Shuuichi Akai, where do you think he'd take you?
A: He'd probably keep driving for the whole thing.
Q77: What types of women do Shuuichi Akai and Tooru Amuro like?
A: Let's see... Akai would like someone who can have a controlling aura without saying a word. And Amuro would like someone who doesn't mind him talking all the time.
Q78: I want a real Subaru Okiya to appear, one that isn't Shuuichi Akai in disguise, Yuusaku Kudou in disguise, or anyone at all in disguise. Is that an impossible request?
A: I guess it is...
Q79: Is Akai Okiya?
A: Sorry, please go read the manga.

A: Will he? (laugh)
Q81: How much money does the BO make annually? Is it more than what you make?

A: They won't be solved at the same time! Moreover, he didn't get killed!

A: Not for the moment, but he's going to be interesting!
