As every DC fan would know, the series has been airing for 16 years now, it is indeed the longest anime series that I know. I started watching DC in 1990s, I stopped then re-watched everything in 2007 up to present. Through these years, I can’t help but to notice that the cases seems repetitive now. I am truly a Detective Conan fanatic that no matter how repetitive they are, I wouldn’t drop the series from my list but there are times that they are not interesting anymore, most especially for the anime fillers. Gosho have said in an interview that the cases are not all his ideas, of course, he needs a second, third, fourth brain. I guess if it wouldn’t have been for that, DC wouldn’t last this long. I’ve also noticed that (i’m referring to the anime) the summaries in the beginning of the episodes are quite long.. longer than the older episodes which is kind of annoying to me, although it helps us to remember the previous episode. Most of the time, I just skip that part.
The series stayed as it was since the beginning, there are few changes but wouldn’t “something new” will make the fans more excited until its ending? Like:
- Makoto would have a major role at least even in just one episode.
- Detective Boys never left 1-B, they should grow..
- Yusaku Kudo in detective mode
I’ve written this post to know what you guys think of Detective Conan now. I created a poll and would appreciate it if you take some time to answer and/or leave comments about this topic.
