Mouri Kogoro’s voice actor was dismissed on the DC series

If you can remember I posted the DC voice actors before and this post will be about one of the seiyuu in the series.

Kamiya Akira, the voice actor of Mouri Kogoro, was dismissed 2 months ago on the series as a seiyuu. According to Akira’s official blog site he said that “There was an issue on the contract. It’s a matter of faith, justice and sincerity” and that he’s the only one to blame.

According to Mainichi News, the reason for the dismissal was a discord between the anime producer and Kamiya Akira regarding the guarantee fee. Kamiya has been negotiating with TV companies and the anime producers to raise the guarantee fees of seiyuu, whose salaries are significantly lower than those of the normal actors. Yomiuri TV, the producer of Detective Conan, was perplexed with Kamiya’s premature disclosure because they were planning to announce the change of the voice actor in Weekly Shounen Sunday to be released on October 28th.

Kamiya Akira explained the reason in his blog. One of the staff of the production company leaked confidential information of Kamiya’s contract with the producer in a blog (probably mixi) and defamed him. Kamiya and the producer were about to reach an agreement but the negotiation broke off due to the leak, which was distorted with ill intention. Kamiya asked a man to intervene but the producers fired him in the end.

Kamiya then offered his apologies to all of the fans for this turn of fortune. He also offered his apologies to the manga creator Gosho Aoyama, lead voice actress Minami Takayama (Conan Edogawa), voice actress Wakana Yamazaki (Ran Mouri), voice actor Kenichi Ogata (Hiroshi Agasa), the other members of the cast, the staff of APU Studio, the YTV network, and the publisher Shogakukan. Kamiya begged fans to keep supporting Detective Conan.

He was the seiyuu of Mouri Kogoro since the start of the series until October 10th 2009. As a fan of DC, without him voicing out Kogoro, there will be always the feeling of nostalgia and it will be long enough to get used to it.

The new voice actor of Mouri Kogoro is Koyama Rikiya, although he sounds a little bit like the original Kogoro ~ it’s still not the best.

OVA8: Female Highschool Detective Suzuki Sonoko’s Casebook

I can’t help but to blog this OVA. So far, of all the episodes, OVA, specials and movies of this series.. this one is really something different. It’s not as what others said that this OVA is ‘bad, worst’ etc. Actually, it is plausible. Plausible because this one really struck the fans.

Who would have known that DC will be something like this?

C4

Can you tell something what’s new on the photo?

YES. It’s not a dummy. It’s a ALIEN. LOL I can’t stop laughing over this one. Mitsuhiko’s idea was a ass-kicker. That alien even resurrected the dead man LOLL and as for Ayumi’s idea LOL she’s even worst than Genta xD (In Japanese, wan-wan is what they call for their dogs bark, unlike in english it’s arf-arf)

This OVA is not only for comedic purposes. It also shows how complex a ‘murder-case’ is done especially the trick used but Gosho and Doyle is excluded :D

Ova9: The Stranger from 10 years

The Stranger from 10 years later

This is DC’s 2009 release, and it’s about Haibara giving Conan a new prototype drug for APTX-4869, I won’t further recapitulate this but instead check the summary here.

Im not that much satisfied with the story, simply because Conan’s actions here is so gay? or should I say.. overly exaggerated and it’s obviously a dream -_- for instance:

Untitled-2

really LMAO. what’s with that reaction?? SOOOO GAYYYY D:

Well, can’t blame them. They are out of storylines. lol

A Divine development ♥

Warning: THIS IS SPOILER

Detective Conan is on it’s 13th year this 2009, and never on it’s hundreds of episodes that a DIVINE development like this had happened. Im talking about our not-so lovey-dovey couple Sato and Takagi-keji <3 even on the Metropolitan Police Detective Love Story arcs, this development didn’t occurred. This was on episode 535, about the whistling man and thanks to our heroes:

Detective Boys

Our Shonen Tanteis! (Detective Boys) for making the development possible <3 Megure-keibu and company was about to interrupt Sato and Takagi again but thanks to the boys, they said that Takagi-keji just took his medicine and is sleeping so they shouldn’t bother him. And there you have it ~~~

Sato and Takagi

Sato and Takagi (2)

One reason why I watch DC for good is because I want to see how far these two can go <3
