Gosho has never given any indication that he cares that fans are solving his stuff years early and doesn't seem to create arc-level mysteries tailored towards challenging these people. It makes sense, hyper-dedicated fans are a significant minority. If anything, Gosho prefers to reuse useful mechanics from the last mystery so he doesn't have to establish a new internal ruleset every arc. People who say "X can't be right because Gosho wouldn't do something obvious" are wrongly imposing their prior experiences with authors who are "must twist-twist-twist" types or care about the hyper-dedicated fanbase. You have to give up the "but it would be too easy" mindset to be successful with Gosho. Gosho throws some harder mysteries (explaining the mechanics of Akai's fake death which only a few people tackled to near completion across the whole multi-language internet.), and he throws some easier ones (Who is Masumi Sera), but there is no indication he avoids certain solutions because they are "too predictable".
@AkaixAkemi. They were questionable because they were adults, and I fully expect adults to have an adult relationship even in the prudish Gosholand. Having an adult relationship with your first cousin is incest. I assume they didn't know, but that doesn't make it any less incestuous. I still think the pairing would be questionable even in the half-sister theory because they are still first cousins by family ties. "Technically it's okay" doesn't quite paper over dating someone who would come to your family reunion if you had one.

The answer is that, as far as I know, this has only been mentioned in the postcards and never brought up in the manga.

While the sisters thing (Both the mother sisters, and Haibara / Akemi) still has not been brought up in the manga directly,
but the beginnings of something that may lead to it starts with the end of file 941. However its been nearly 20 chapters since then
and nothing more has come up related to it.
A quick question regarding your "Boss is possibly a shrunken adult" theory. Were there any evidence (parents;otherwise) that neither of those two students (the boy and girl) that joined Conan's class a few years ago were the Boss? If so, how would you personally see the character if you could design him?
Camel is not "case-only plain" by my definition; he's extra-time-was-put-into-drawing-him-in-every-panel ugly. You can see it in his hair especially, but also jawline and browline to a lesser extent. Keeping that many bony angles consistent is not easy, but Gosho puts in the effort! He's not even as hideous as he could be; Camel doesn't have the soulless and hideous foreigner eyes that Gosho sometimes uses for throwaway foreign characters (I'm not talking about the small pupil eyes. Look at the background foreign characters in Shinichi's NY case, London case, and red vs black background FBI for examples of the creepy foreigner eyes.). Take some screenshots of the filler FBI in chap 598 and paste Camel's pic in the middle. You can pick Camel out of a lineup of filler FBI because of the extra detail.MeiTanteixX wrote:Camel was a BO suspect during the kir arc, and although he wasn't fat/skinny, he definitely had interesting facial features that could be classified as "case-only plain".
