Magic Kaito episode 7 discussion (The Splendid Rivals)

Spoiler:
Well, that certainly was interesting. Hakuba using Kid as bait to get at Spider... wasn't expecting that. Pretty awesome.

I loved this episode so much. The anime is turning out to be better than expected.
Spoiler:
That being said, the Detective Conan wiki says on Spider's (the person) page that he is just an agent. I, on the other hand, think not. What about you guys? Then again, if Gunter von Goldberg II is his true name, his father might be the boss...

I think that we should have a game here whenever an episode airs, called 'Where's Conaldo?' (Get it? Conan... Waldo... yeah...) Did anyone spot him? :P

I'm quite interested in how Hakuba knows about Spider and why he's so interested. Also, what is up with anime and manga people making the bad guys  so darn attractive?

I'm confused, why does the already subbed episode need spoiler tags? I'm the leader of the anti-spoiler brigade and even I think that's silly.

While I had a guess based on that thread referencing him, but Spider is here. And...that's one way to introduce a villian. Have him force kids to fly and turn into angels who fly around him. Wow, I'll admit, that's a new one for me.

It's still weird how much Magic Kaito's plot has moved forward vs. Conan's. The side series (or at least in retrospect a side series) has more stuff going on than the main series. It's interesting how much they are changing considering how little they changed in Conan, even in the early days.

Speaking of Conan, POINTLESS CAMEO. Silly Haibara, he is fighting back against Okiya. "Take that, I can out cameo you!" Hahaha, he's amused at this. Awesome.

Okay, I am a bit mixed about all this. A bit. Just because this feels really rushed. They probably should have saved Spider's 2nd appearance to a later episode and just let Hakuba have the spotlight. And it's only episode 7. That being said, Spider is already awesome. Seriously, a shonen villian that's part of a huge organization who uses illusions to assassinate, you've already won. That's the type of stuff that makes shonen anime awesome. I just had a big grin on my face at the climax, it was that great. And he has an evil laugh. YES.

I'm sure some people are annoyed at the changes. By that I mean, stupid people bawwing over Magic Kaito having a worthwhile villian and Hakuba not being wasted on just being generic rival character 3.

Also, am I the only one who finds the opening song's title hilariously sadistic?

^ Well, the subs I watched didn't sub the opening... so... I don't know the rest of the song, unless you count when they sing in English. xD

Also, can I just add in the fact that I really like how Spider is voiced by Daisuke Namikawa? That guy's awesome! He voices Italy, TYL!Tsuna, Giotto, Fai, and just recently Hisoka... the guy's a genius. xD

@slider: Sorry, I'm just so used to posting in the manga spoilers. xD The climax WAS really epic, though. I love how Hakuba helped out Kaito Kid. Something tells me that they'll be rivals for most of the time, but when Spider shows up in episodes, they will work as a team. Also, I was thinking about those angel kids last night, and something tells me that those kids were a part of the illusion.

I absolutely looooved the Hakuba-KID tag team, but detest that Hakuba is not at all obsessed with KID, as he was supposed to be.

And Spider is too... are they rushing the ending or something? Or if not, after Spider has been defeated, KID will have to face more animal-named opponents until he gets to the boss?

Nope, I don't think Gosho rushes. But he is FINALLY continuing the storyline.  :D

I loved that too :D. Seeing Hakuba out of breath, helping Kaitou even after what he did to him.

I thought that was Hakuba's hidden agenda.

He still has the same voice he had on the Conan episodes, if that's what you mean.

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask, but where are you guys able to see this episode? Are there any places that stream it at high quality and subbed?
