then Goshō going as far to lie in an interview, an out-of-universe cheat, seems to me to be going too far in the cheating, because my assumption was that this cheating would be relegated to in-universe cheats, in the manga, itself).
That's why I think there should be some truth to his answer, albeit misleading.
He answered the question of "Is Rum certainly among the trio of Wakasa, Kuroda and Wakita?" with a yes. Muga is Rum to you, right? How does he tell a misleading truth without lying, here? At least to me, right now, such an answer isn't presenting itself in my mind. As blackmoon mentioned, it could work if another character was disguised as one of the 3, but I don't think Muga is disguised as one of them.
Anyway, more spoiler pics have come out—Here are the translations:
Yusaku: The case involving serial locked room murders that's happened for the last month...
Yusaku: Well, each victim has no connection in terms of age or job and the murder methods vary in each case... And so I was told that it's unclear whether they were all killed by the same culprit or not...
Yusaku: An emergency live broadcast next Saturday at 8PM, in Tōto TV!
Yusaku: Titled "Complete explanation of the serial locked room murder cases"! I will solve the mystery!
Yusaku: But until I saw the crime scenes photos today at the MPD...
Yusaku: I only intended to make a deduction based on the available information...
Reporter: I-I belong to another station, but I'm looking forward to it...
Yusaku: If you'll excuse me!
Reporter: Allow me one last question!
Reporter: You strangely solved a false accusation against Kid, too...
Reporter: Please send him a message!
Yusaku: Let's see...
Yusaku: If you consider you owe me one, please consider buying one of my novels...
Conan: You want to disguise yourself as Dad... and make me use the voice changer?!
Yukiko: Truth is, Yu-chan was supposed to go to the MPD HQ at noon to reveal the truth of the case, but he fell asleep before that...
Conan: I see..
Conan: You still haven’t heard the truth of the case yet...
Conan: So you want me to go home with you, show me the case’s materials, and solve it to prepare for the television special...
Yukiko: As excepted of my son!
Yukiko: You’re spot on!
Conan: Geez.... got it!
Conan: So when will the TV crew come?
Yukiko: 6 pm..
Conan: 4 hours left, then?
And here is a summary of the chapter, courtesy of Sidier#8557:
Deduction Show on TV!?
Yusaku comes out of the MPD building, and the media accosts him. He mentions that Nakamori came up to him and asked him to look into a recent crime, saying he felt something was off with it. A museum owner, arrested under suspicion of fraud that morning for selling jewels to deal with hard times for his business, had tried to make it look like Kid had stolen from him in order to get insurance money. Yusaku also reveals that he came to the MPD at Megure's request to solve a series of locked room murders that happened over the span of a month. All 3 victims were killed in different ways, and were all of different ages and jobs, so the MPD has had a hard time finding who's responsible. Having now seen photos of the crime scenes, Yusaku has figured out the trick behind the locked rooms, but he still hasn't figured out the culprit. As he leaves, he reveals that he's scheduled for a TV appearance to reveal the truth. A shadowman figure grins while watching this on their phone.
3 days later, on the day Yusaku is meant to film for the program, he's been lying in bed after eating at an Italian restaurant—he was even supposed to go to the MPD today to tell Megure about the truth of the case, so now no one else knows what the truth of the case . Since the producer of the program is the same producer who played a key role in the first-ever TV adaption of Yusaku's work, it'll be hard to turn him down, so Yukiko suggests Conan solve the case and then he can use the voice changer to relay his deduction through her while she disguises as Yusaku. A shadowman figure grins while eavesdropping on them.
Akai is out on FBI business as Conan looks at the case files. He figures out the trick to the locked room, that the 3 murders were committed by the same killer, and is thus able to get a rough idea of who the culprit is. He goes to get Yukiko, but she now has the same food poisoning as Yusaku. The TV staff have come and Conan's voice changer hasn't finished charging, so he goes to tell them to leave... but a 3rd Yusaku appears at the door.
“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.”
“Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
