Usually, in fiction we don't like people just because they did right or not. If that is the case, Joker is not that popular.
If he could've done that, then he would've taken out Calvados way before he shot Jodie.
Let Ran have that moment—it's her most important plot moment (and on a related note, I like Shiho/Ai and Ran, together, in general—it's something I'd like to see more of, in fact).
It'd be a huge character catalyst... will it lead to anything beyond their inevitable reconciliation? I don't think so. Thus, it's not really a pure plot-based catalyst (like Vermouth, APTX or Koji Haneda).
If you're going with the popularity argument, then Batman is just as popular.
I like real people and fictional characters who do the right thing. You may not find that interesting, and, thus, not likable, but that's you.
I don't see the problem of Ran making Kogoro give the ticket back, or her recognizing the possibility that the ticket was the woman's, and taking according action, since Kogoro wouldn't.MeiTanteixX wrote:eros1607 wrote:@DCUniverseAfictionado: I prefer Ran not butted in to save Shiho/Ai.

In my opinion, this is one of the most absurd opinions I've read.
And this is coming from another person who's also been very much looking forward to their meeting.
I don't have any problems with Ran in this Shushi case. I just talk about that full moon showdown. About the character is likeable, I didn't say I dislike people who do the right things. I just say they need more to be likeable. And yeah I am looking forward to seeing the meeting of Akai and Shiho just as much as I am looking forward to seeing Amuro settle everything with Akai, Amuro's relationship with Elena, the truth of the death of Haneda Kohji, Rum's identity. Gosho foreshadows the suspicion of Shiho towards Akai for long enough. To me, they are important just like the suspicion of Ran towards Conan. My opinion may be absurd but waiting for too long sometimes can make people not always rational. I am sorry about that.
