Episode 1007: Out For Revenge (Part One)

-Oh boy its time for reveeeenge!

-Oh we skipped to the dead body already. That was nice of them.

-That's a lot of blood. And from a distance, it risks looking like blood! : o

-Ok so I looked it up. I thought this was someone else whose done OPs before, but she's only done one ED, and she didn't sound like a different person in that one. Weird.

-Ah the smug trio

-"Guys its really important we cut to Conan's serious face. This adds nothing to anything, but do it to end the scene, ok?"

-But showing the "blood" up close when its this much absolutely, unquestionably, undeniably just makes it look like he spilled way too much black ink on himself and fell down. No one thinks this looks like real blood, but no one is being protected because you didn't use the color red.

-...so the lawyer did it? That's my immediate guess

-Oooh so I'd assume the lawyer disguised himself as Komoto and will kill him to make it seem like he committed suicide. Not sure the autopsy would make that work out in the long run if he doesn't have the disease he's supposed to have, but oh well.

-murder in broad daylight

-Easy to fake a dead body if he happens to have died in the water, maybe carried elsewhere. Watch as I'm wrong about ALL of this.

-...what is this incredibly specific tragedy?

-"Something's not right" it never is

Episode 1008: Out For Revenge (Part Two)

-I dunno why but it feels so much longer than a week since I saw the last episode so yes I could use this recap.

-"Something's not right" It never is

-Suddenly, he was buried!

-I do think its interesting how much pure dumb luck helped discover this information. Like normally the culprit would've made a mistake or had to leave some small piece of evidence somehow, but here its just "well it just happened to be time to dig this random place up!"

-Probably wasn't this Mr. X I imagine
https://cdn-www.gamerevolution.com/asse ... hasing.png

-Random people looking around like "why are these angry looking people all just standing around and staring?"

-Y'know in this scenario, they probably just broke an innocent guy's back for no reason.

-Considering what Crunchyroll won't actually put in the subs sometimes, I'm fascinated Kogoro-no-ojisan is apparently one of them.

-Kogoro's sudden math equation is kinda great

-This case took an odd turn

-Honestly I wish they just kept with Conan laughing for at least 10 more seconds

This case was certainly interesting. I thought for once I had a really good idea of where it was going, and it went in a fairly different direction. I mean, there being a 2nd murderer was inevitable but I didn't see anything else about it happening. It was kind of a genuine surprise and certainly is one of the more interesting directions they've gone with a case in quite some time. But I'm a bit mixed on it? Like I thought it was better than an average 2 part AO, but it didn't leave the impact it should have. So I mostly just looked at it as "huh that's interesting" rather than any real investment. I also feel like it may have been a little too cute with how it handled its twist, like "look at us, we actually surprised you". I dunno. But I will say, I did spend enough time thinking about the case, which is so hard to do with these AOs. There's been so many, and so often they just do what the series does in the manga anyway, that its so hard to care sometimes. This gets an A for effort, at the very least.

Episode 1011: Picking Wild Plants and Clovers (Part One)

-I was half expecting her to walk him off a cliff

-Look, I've complained about it forever, but that was really good until the blood was distractingly not red. It will pretty much never be anything but a consistent problem that will negatively effect (even if to a small degree) every single case with blood, unless they decide to change it back.

-I'll be honest, I would've bet money this would've been AO based on the very boring title, if not for the characters who show up in this specific one (especially the plot character)

-This small plot point is made much less happy when you know how Japanese businesses don't want working women to waste any time having or raising kids, so of course she'd quit (...though teaching seems like a particularly weird profession to be against this)

Ok I was not thinking at all, because obviously its much less happy since she sure isn't getting married now :V

-"They have nothing to do with us common folk" that still breathe

-"Ooooh" ...Detective Boys, she's just backing up her vehicle. It's not that impressive. Even for your ages.

-Yamamura! : D Oh man, how long has it even been? I can't remember the last time he showed up!

-I love how Yamamura is actually correct on this one

-Yamamura is still a delight

-Ayumi is so used to murders she can just find a four leaf clover like nothing happened

-A right eye issue, huh? That seems potentially familiar.

Episode 1012: Picking Wild Plants and Clovers (Part Two)

-Instead of using someone literally trapped in a closet to make obvious jokes, I'm going to guess who is.

Obviously Eisuke. Even his attempt to ask out Ran were a ruse so...

By contrast, Sera isn't in the closet. Unless there's some not early scene where Ran or Sonoko ask if she has a boyfriend anyway. But she's the recurring character in this series I'm most certain isn't straight.

Headcanons

-They did the "ding" sound effect

-Yamamura got his very own Conan puppet : D

-Yamamura face meets tree

-...yeah I have no idea why Conan blushed there for a second...ok maybe just because this is weird to do with someone who doesn't normally do the sleeping Kogoro thing

-Kobayashi, the strongest woman in the world!

-The cool thing about the sleeping detectives is that basically every character who goes through with it has a voice that makes for a fun contrast with their normal wacky persona. Like they can pull "unexpectedly serious" very well. Maybe not as much for Yamamura though, but that might just be because credible, serious Yamamura basically doesn't exist outside of this mode.

-Ok Conan. ...you gonna do something? No. Ok.

This case was pretty good. I think it needed a bit more or better atmosphere (giant contrast to the church case) to be anything all that special, but it worked well enough and was enjoyable for what it was. Even with a lesser one, Gosho cases still tend to stand out as highlights compared to the rest. But after all this time...you gotta do something at some point. It's not the Bourbon arc where it was infuriating how there'd be large breaks in the story (even if one of those breaks advanced a different story), its intentionally a more chill arc until something finally happens. But at some point...something has to really happen here.

Episode 1016: The Monorail Sniper Case (Part One)

-I didn't think the monorail sniper would happen while they were on it, but I'm also surprised there's a sniper in an AO (I just doubled checked this for all the remaining already aired episodes, for reasons).

-I remember seeing a train sniper situation in one of the movies in the past couple of years, so it was either one of the last couple of movies or when I rewatched movie 18...

-Well if there were suspicious blood strains going that far, I'd still investigate! That's a weird thing to find regardless of relevancy!

-Ok that's a pretty cool coincidence. Potentially not a sniper at all!

-"What's this smell? Oh of course, the smell of a kidnapped woman!"
...I mean, that's what that scene is implying by just cutting to commercial right there

-From not sniper to exploding cars, what a wild episode

-I wanna believe this is just going the greatest lengths possible to avoid being found out for the one murder.

-Kogoro was probably thinking something like "the dentist, of course!"

-This is in contention for the silliest Shadowman has ever looked

-This ED song is...mildly interesting. It feels like small bits of music from random cultures.

Episode 1017: The Monorail Sniper Case (Part Two)

-I don't know why but the shot of the three people with the forklifts going towards the camera with a serious expression on their faces is hilarious

-Shadowman slowly driving by is also hilarious

-Fitting to open something that looks like it belongs on a casket to try to find the body

-"His heart shall belong to me forever!" No seriously, that was about to be way too much for any era of this series

-It'd be a surprise if it wasn't, but I'm pretty sure that guy just shot himself in a non-lethal way

-I said that BEFORE he did a little smile in the ambulance lol

-Well he better have not shot himself in any way to cause even the slightest of injury, or else Takagi is being massively careless just to catch this guy

Well that was a very fun case, even if the latter half wasn't as interesting as the first. Particularly compared to the standard formula in AOs, I much prefer when they try going all over the place and seeing things consistently happen rather than slow it down for half the time to just slowly uncovering evidence. I think they're generally better at that when they don't have Gosho's own material to work off of. Though considering how Kogoro had a gun pointed at him, it felt like that part was weirdly less exciting than it should be.

I vibe with this opening for ZTT. It kicks off with those iconic spy-like instruments but that singing in the second half is fantastic.
OP:

ED:

This message is in the beginning of the episode as well.

Also, the first episode of ZTT starts off with some really beautiful and calm melody, that track is an absolute killer! Is that from the new music producer? It doesn't sound like anything from Ohno. Anyway I really like that track, long and well-rounded to set up the atmosphere. Someone better find it.
