I can understand you kor that gosho can screw up.Kor wrote: ↑July 29th, 2020, 2:16 pmIn the beach flashback case, Gosho proved just how much he can mess up memories and flashbacks, which is why I actually don't have much faith in him getting these sort of things exactly right. Conan remembers from the case things that he wasn't around to witness or hear. In an ideal world, our mystery writer would be perfect, but Gosho isn't.
Here are some of my favorite "Gosho forgot Conan isn't around to witness it moments:
First let's start with something that was indicated a bit before the flashback in chapter 905:
Only problem is, there is no indication in the flashback that Ran was next to Shinichi and Masumi for this exchange. We simply don't see her near them when this happens. (in fact, the final appearance of child Ran is on page 9 in the final chapter of the flashback).
Next, we have the glimpses of memories that Conan had in chapter 969. Such as:
But throughout the flashback, Mary's clearly wearing a shirt.
Since Akai asks "who are you", it's logical to assume that Conan remembers when Akai asked him that. But in the corresponding scene in the actual flashback, it's actually like this:
Shinichi wasn't seemingly next to the Akais when Shuukichi said what Conan remembers above.
Also I'd like to add to this that the dialogue isn't 100% the same between the two memories too
As for Mary's shinigami comments, which were said at the start of 972, there's once again no indication that Shinichi's anywhere near them to hear it. Shinichi would need to be right in front of her in order to witness this, but he only first appears in page 10.
Lastly, in the beach flashback, Conan remembers at the end of chapter of 974:
But the only spot in the entire case where Shuukichi says "mary-kaa-san" happens in chapter 972, page 3, where, again, Shinichi isn't actually near the Akais to hear Shuukichi saying that.
Some of this inconsistent memory is between two cases that were written one after the other, and some of it is within the very same case. So if you were to ask me "can we completely trust Gosho to not screw up memories of characters and present them completely consistently", I'd say no, it's quite possible for Gosho to screw up these sort of things.
he ia a human being after all.
but I do think that here in magician of ripples case
screwing up in dialogues doesnt mean thst much they arent relayed directly to rum mystery.
dialogues like " you are magician"
" you are possessed " theur memories can be screwed up.
this definitely leaves a posibility that same happened with
kuroda 's memory of kohji .
but to make it a strng arguement . you have to show mistakes from scenes which were extremely important to plot . its possible but very less liely.
if you remember the small detail from vermouth arc gosho gave that jodie's pictures were actually photographs of vermouths picture .those rough edges.
thus was mimute detail which was very well handled by gosho.
so my conclusion is that in plot relevant things gosho will be extremely careful though still erare mistakes can happen.
I am not denying.
but your all examples arent important to plot
not even mentioned again in any case. so being less
careful here is okay.
