hello everyone , it's my first time participating here although i've been following the forum for years , anyway ..
You leaving your thoughts is very appreciated.
I agree though. It's gonna be very hard to solve a case, not to mention hide his existence/involvement if other schools sees him. The only way I see this workout is that only his class will know of his involvement(+Heizuha) and while they solve the case, Shinichi will be out of other Schools' and cops'(Ayanokoji's) sight(unless Ayanokoji becomes cooperative in hiding Shinichi's involvement in their first meeting).
overall, since it's 1000, I think we should expect an amazing series. If it's not because of any major development, it should be because of the interesting interactions(Momiji, Sera, Heiji, Shinichi, Ran, Sonoko, Kazuha.... choose your combination) and the case itself(which called for a Kyoto trip, just to gather materials). This one should be on par with London at least
, and who knows, with Sera involved, we might get some main plot clues.
