What's the 906 case, by the way? Nothing comes to mind for me...

Volume 86, Files 906-08.

It's the Scriptwriter Murder Case with the 3 men who each fit the descriptions of RUM.

erm.. that's quite the jump. We don't know to what extent they keep him updated, and a second-in-command handles more than just the members.


Right, so here's a no-brain-er's fact about RUM.
1. He has access to the APTX victim list and he knows about Shinichi Kudo being on the list, and it is suspicious that the recent news report spreading news about him being active, so he requests Bourbon to investigate about Shinichi.

2. He has authority to delegate orders to BO code-name members (unless Bourbon is his DIRECT subordinate; otherwise, it means he basically has authority to delegate orders to all code-name members for being number 2).

So basically he pays attention to events involving BO and has authority over BO members. That basically is all we know for now and no idea what other affairs he is in charge with, but he definitely has a hand in ordering BO members. ;)

Since tomorrow the Wakita-episode is airing,
might someone check if Wakita and Chikara have the same voice actor?
Thx guys.

It might just happen that Wakita = Chikara
since there are a few aspects pointing at this.
We might this rule out (pretty much) if they have different ones.

No, they're different VAs.

Katsumata = Minoru Inaba.
Wakita = Shigeru Chiba

Also, it's not like out of universe links are the key to solving the mysteries, they might be hints but not the key to resolution.

Yep—they'd be but additional/supplemental pieces of the case one would build, coming well after the most crucial points.
“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.”

Two little rejoinders,

1) Shigeru Chiba also voiced Lau-san, a father who abandned his daughter to win a tournament and hone a different martial art.
2)Minoru Inaba has voiced Cyclonus prime, the second in command of Decepticons.

Ah. Thanks. The way he (?) said it implied some kind of case where the number 906 was important.

Either present Karasuma or RUM or both must be body doubles, that's what Gosho wanted to convey in Mermaid Legend, where a young woman disguised, body double, took over role of immortal grand priestess after original death

I think that case was more so hinting to Chris disguising as her own mother Sharon, since that was the ongoing mystery during Vermouth arc.

Was Gin´s mission really to poison Shinichi ? Nope, the mission was originally the transaction with the company owner. The encounter with Shinichi was also a coincidence. Also if we think, Gin said, Its the first time they used the APTX4869, so he didnt know any side effects of the drug. (Only Shiho knew). The person who messed up is actually Shiho, because Gin thought the drug is actually a killing machine with leaving no evidences.

So I think that Rum isn´t blaming Gin. I mean, Rum can´t actually blame him.
