DC Special Contest: 11 vs 521-523

Postby dilbertschalter » July 1st, 2010, 1:47 am

Welcome to the DC specials contest! In this contest, 28 specials and four especially notable multipart cases will be facing off against each other for... some kind of supremacy. The format is single elimination, with pairings being determined by a standard bracket (see bottom of the post for the bracket). During the first two rounds, the faceoffs will last roughly 4 days. In the next round, they will be 5 days, then 6, the finals last 7 days. If there is a tie, the tiebreaker will be the time in seconds of the OP. If the OP was posted at an even second (.ie. hh:mm:30), the first entry will win; if the time in seconds is odd (i.e. hh:mm:31) the second entry will win. Lame tiebreak, I know. The links provided are from TheQuyen's thread, many props to him for maintaining it.

Anyway, on to the contest. This time, we have the both the oldest and the most recent DC specials.

Episode 11: Moonlight Sonata Murder Case

"The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit, and all his thoughts will perish. The uneasy consciousness, which in this obscure corner has for a brief space broken the contented silence of the universe, will be at rest. Matter will know itself no longer. 'Imperishable monuments' and 'immortal deeds,' death itself, and love stronger than death, will be as though they had never been."

Going with Moonlight Sonata here. It packs more of a punch emotionally than all but a few episodes in the series and the mystery is top notch. Murderer, Kudo Shinichi is a nice case, but the main trick was a bit too obvious and Shinichi seemed really lazily drawn (quibble, I know).

One sided in which direction? It's 2-2 right now and while that might not continue both episodes are pretty popular, no?

Is Moonlight Sonata really that highly regarded?  I figured it would take something more than a regular good episode to really fight off a Shinichi episode.

I guess it just depends on what you're looking for. As soon as "mute Shinichi" was introduced I felt like it was someone else and when the Shirigami was shown I felt like it was him. In Moonlight Sonata, I had a good idea of who the killer was, but was quite thrown off by the twist.

Going against what xpon said, I voted for Moonlight Sonata. It was just a better story period, complete with one of the most shocking twists to date. Plus it had a character named Shuuichi who wore a tuque. Foreshadowing anyone?

I like both.  A lot.

In the end... I'll choose Moonlight Sonata for the nostalgia.

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same.
