Because we all know that what organisation does with the traitors.And even if he was able to come out successfully,the organisation would have known about him.I mean the senior members at least.
Maybe he was found out, though? While I don't know how much of Kuroda's given backstory is true, it's at least safe to say he was gravely injured in the past. Maybe the BO thought they had him but he survived (and as such had to go with a different identity. And as far as the BO and traitors go... Akai managed to survive pretty well all things considered.
Haibara indeed got triggered in the burning tent case but it wasn't because they emit bo aura.Because of the way Rumi was staring at that one eyed dude.There's difference. Yeah it's true that her radar completely failed during that shrine case but I think we can still believe in her bo radar because it failed only once and rum is number 2 of the organisation.
I'm not convinced it came from Rumi when a few panels later we see Kuroda also looking at the scene and due to the nature of the BOdar to fool us. (And if it's coming from Rumi that means she's also in or was in the BO, which would then require an explanation of why some BO woman is targeting Conan, has a shogi piece, scars, and also is probably not a bad person at the end of the day.)
Btw, that guy she was staring at wasn't one eyed (not important, just wanted to point that out).
So you really think Wakita is rum?
Yes, the "time is money" thing sealed the deal for me for the most part. It's exactly the type of silliness Gosho would be willing to go for (as evident by the "Aono" hint from the latest case). I'm also not looking for other suspects besides the main 3, and under the process of elimination, Wakita fits the bill the most.
In Wakita's intro case he calls rum weak. How do you explain that? Is rum self critical?
Dunno, maybe. Maybe Gosho thought that by having Wakita imply that Rum is weak, then readers won't find him the most suspicious of the bunch? But who knows...
Also, If I were number 2 of the organisation,I wouldn't go myself disguising to check on my targets....I would give other members order exactly what the actual rum did.He ordered Amuro.
And if I were Shuukichi, I wouldn't start avoiding my girlfriend at the expense of getting seven titles in some game under the pretense that she'd be really into that, much less would I condition my marriage to her based on getting all of those seven titles because that's a really stupid thing to do. I guess that my point is that what we would be doing if we were the characters isn't that great of an argument, and characters in this series have exemplified time and time again that they can be dumber than a rock and their actions can be inherently silly. Especially the organization, which has showcased quite the incompetence considering all the spies it has in it.
I don't look at it from the mindset that Rum is like this genius tactician who will be smarter than the rest of the bunch. Since he's a character that's written by Gosho, he'll probably behave like a character that's written by Gosho.
Its true that we are currently aware of only 3 people being involved.But you can't deny the possibility of fourth person being involved.
The inability to deny a possibility doesn't inherently mean said possibility is more likely than others. There are plenty of possibilities I can't deny currently. I mean, you can't deny the possibility that Kuroda could be Tsutomu, right?
What if rum is not one of those 3 suspects and is actually a fourth person?
I've yet to see a super convincing theory that uses all the knowledge we have to pinpoint Rum as a 4th person, though. I also tend to believe that the idea of a 4th person stems from wishful thinking by readers who hope Gosho wouldn't be so repetitive or predictable (even though Gosho is extremely repetitive as a writer). I always leave room to the possibility I'm wrong, though.
