I'm personally interested in the theory that Anokata is James from the FBI.
I like a plot that someone on a good side was acrually a godfather.
James is one of the few characters with an actual alibi. Near the end of FBI vs. the Organization, Gin received permission from the boss to change targets to Mouri Kogoro. At the time Gin's permission was received, James Black was driving a car with Conan and Jodie in it and thus would not be able to manipulate a cellphone while driving without Conan and Jodie noticing.
There are a bunch of other arguments against James being the boss on the not the boss list.
in my persnal opinion boss is none other than gin who is also vermouth(sharon=chris)'s husband.he may have two phones like conan and uses those to disguise his role as anokata.that's why most decision are left to gin.
don't know where i read but somewhere it was said (possibly detectiveconanworld) that in conan drill it is hinted that gin and vermouth had sexual relationship meaning the theory that gin is sharon's husband isn't farfetched.
It isn't hinted. It's stated outright that Vermouth and Gin have had a physical relationship.
If Gin was the boss, we need to make the assumption he is pretending to be his own agent. He has engaged in many rather open missions where he has been attacked. This is risky behavior then, contradicting what Vermouth said about the boss being very cautious.
Also, if the boss's favorite is Vermouth, we somehow need to rationalize that behavior with Gin not liking her for keeping secrets, threatening her with a gun, and trying to drive an icepick through her head. (for fun?) Two people can be physically involved without liking the other, but Vermouth is the boss's favorite. If was all about the sex, why would Sherry not be the boss's (Gin) favorite considering it was suggested they were involved?
Gin did not know about Bourbon's plan to disguise as Akai. Vermouth said she had the boss's permission for the plan because he was very cautious. Of course this relies on the basic Bourbon arc speculations being true.
The FBI were hoping to capture Gin who would lead them to the boss. This means Akai and the other FBI think there is someone over Gin at least. (599.09)
