DC Specials Contest (Semifinals): 188-193 vs 345

Post by dilbertschalter »

Last time, Clash of Red and Black defeated Moonlight Sonata easily. This time, in the most interesting faceoff of the entire contest, we have:

Episode 188: The Desparate Revival: The Cavern of the Detective Boys
Episode 189: The Desparate Revival: A Wounded Great Detective
Episode 190: The Desparate Revival: The Third Choice
Episode 191: The Desparate Revival: The Black Knight
Episode 192: The Desparate Revival: Shinichi's Return
Episode 193: The Desparate Revival: The Promised Place

vs

Episode 345: Head to Head Matchup with the Black Organization, Two Mysteries Night of the Full Moon (Part 1)*
Episode 345: Part 2*

*The Episode only has one part, but (afaik) because of Megaupload size restrictions the download is split into two parts.

"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."

This is really no contest for me. Desperate Revival is such a perfect summary of everything that I enjoy in DC:

-Great whodunits (190-191)
-A Fun, but scary DB adventure story (188-189)
-A Howdunit featuring  amano-a-mano clash with an extra-smug killer (192-193)
-ShinRan <3ness. (sort of all over, though it comes most in 191-193
-Serious AiCon interactions (189-190)

In other words, if you like DC, vote for Desperate Revival!
-Heiji coming in and being his usual hot blooded fool self (meant in a positive way).

As much as I love Two Mysteries, Desperate Revival wins. :) (For pretty much all the reasons dilbert listed, though not so much the ShinRanness or the AiCon awkwardness. Now, if only it had Akai too... but I guess it can't have everything.)

Desperate Revival because
1) i prefer this for the designs
2) Ai is fantastic in the hospital
3) Conan is in very danger...
4) The black Knight is so wonderful!!
5) There are Heiji, Kazuha, Araide ecc

345 is fantastic for Sharon, Akai, Ran ecc but it is the end of a part of story of DC because after all is different.

Nooo!  I think this might be worse than the last contest.

I have no clue which to vote for...

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

Two Mysteries, because it was the most epic DC episode, obviously.

I really love both, but I went with Desperate Revival.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! SO CRUEL! I CAN'T CHOOSE!

Darn! I must say I loved 188-193! It was so *-* But · · · >.< 345 and everything that happened on those close episodes WAS TOO EPIC! (I just read manga, I don't know exactly what happened on 345 but have a vagely idea) I guess I'm going for 345 · · ·  :'( *cries like a crazy*

Desperate Revival. As mentioned, pretty much has everything in it to love about DC.
