DC Specials Contest: 11 vs 176-178

Post by dilbertschalter »

Last time, in the last faceoff of the second round, 345 triumphed over 516-517. This time, in this first contest of the quarterfinals, we have my sig against my avatar:

Episode 11: Moonlight Sonata Murder Case

vs

Episode 176: Meeting with the Black Organization Again (Haibara Part)
Episode 177: Meeting with the Black Organization Again (Conan Part)
Episode 178: Meeting with the Black Organization Again (Resolution)


For info on the current bracket/past and future contests, go to the info thread

edit: Forgot to put this in the OP, but there's a new tiebreak procedure- if the voting ends in a tie, whichever episode got more posts in favor wins. If both have the same number of posts, then the tiebreak will revert to the original arcane procedure I thought of.

This is a tough one, probably the toughest of the contest so far for me. 176-178 is probably the best the entire series has to offer in terms in terms of sustained gripping action; it's tight, intense, and moves quite quickly, unlike certain other *cough 345/Clash cough* BO episodes; as usual there are a few logical inconsistencies, but they aren't particularly egregious.

Moonlight Sonata, though is in a class of its own. It's just so... ridiculously good... (not a very imaginative phrasing, I know). The case is very good and does a great job of setting the tone for the first 60 episodes or so. It was after watching this episode (technically, episodes, as I watched the dub) that I became truly hooked on the series. The power of nostalgia compels me to vote for it.

It seems we're just the more vocal ones though, because the BO episode's winning D:

176-178.

Moonlight has MUCH more nostalgia for me. However, my nostalgia can go f**k itself.
