Japanese Folklore in DC

Postby Xytan Whitcombe » November 21st, 2017, 7:04 pm

Quick question as I hardly read DC anymore.

Does anyone recall cases in which Emperor Jimmu or Momotaro were mentioned?

There was an anime original episode on Momotaro

I hope that I can find someway to contribute to the community even if it's just random crack theories and looking things up for people who can't find the information they need.

Thank you. I appreciate your help. Unfortunately it proved to be a dead end.

I was so certain that Gosho had some type of Japanese folklore thing going on as the guestbook name we all assumed was the bosses could be interpreted in a very specific religious way and that when Gosho was mentioning that the bosses name had appeared somewhere, I was very certain that we were overlooking it as it was not the name of a character or person in Detective Conan, but likely a casual reference to a Japanese folk figure whom the Boss shared a name with. Thus I was certain that it was either connected to Emperor Jimmu who lead all of Japan with the help of the Yatagarasu a three legged crow, or Momotaro which is a story about a boy growing up/getting bigger to defeat a black Demon Lord and his seven henchmen.

Unfortunately, as my foundation just eroded on me 10 minutes ago, it looks like there is no over-arching theme with Japanese folk and myth in Detective Conan. At least, not from my perspective.
