Just a question for the anons who follow Detective Conan:

I've only read up to vol8 so far and we've gotten no further in the Men in Black/reverting back to Shinichi's true size investigation. I understand that the series will probably come to an end if it's ever resolved but some development would be good. So, can I expect this storyline to be developed? Surely Ran would catch on sometime?
>>
oh you!

Actually, is there a good place to get a translation of this from?

Or for that matter, any old anime? All the groups seem fixated on releasing only the newest most mainstream crap. Every 12-year-old and their dead nine-year-old kid in a sandbox has a nartuo/bleach manga release group.

I would kill for a group that's done Lupin the Third or Blackjack. or fucking Captain Harlock.

You mean.. 30+ volumes and still NOTHING?

Subs for the anime, fucking WHERE?

>>11527071
Seconded. I suppose it'd be faster to scanlate/learn it yourself than wait for someone?

I believe there are a few episodes where they find a temporary fix, to restore him to normal size, but only for a brief time.

It's a pretty bad plot device.

I guess you could get some of those darkhorse translations. Most old manga has been re-lisenced in the states, but it didn't sell well and they're were many books printed to begin with.

It's just not profitable to sell old comics/manga, so because of the "fad-like" nature of manga fans, the original stuff is vanishing. No one is archiving it or preserving it.

Seriously, try to find some stuff by Tezuka, "The Father of Anime". Find me a copy of "Lost World". or his TV show "Vampires"

Gone the way of the Dodo bird.

I gave up on this series even though it has delicious loli and mildly interesting detective drama because the story never seems to go anywhere.

thanks!

The frame story in Conan was never the main point.

After about 42 books, it does not really go anywhere, but now and then it gives a backdrop to some exciting action and resolves some of the more mysterious aspects. But then Aoyama comes up with something to replace that.

The ending better be some epic shit.

Conan/Shinichi occasionally brushes with the men in black but just before Conan is able to get important info (fingerprints, documents, etc.) from the MIB, shit happens and he's only able to get fragments that only gives him clues but doesn't really help nab them MIB.
More random cases pop up in between before Conan will encounter the MIB again.

This sort of series has no end. It's a serial.It only ends if the author dies without passing it on, or if it stops making money.
>>
>>11527325
here's your epic ending

Detective Conan is about selft-conclusive cases, if you watch it for the main plot and character development you'll be dissapointed.
That doesn't mean that it's inexistant, but they're just like "bonus".

bumping for old manga
