I've often wondered what types of firearms were being used in the Detective Conan series, but not being a gun person, have been completely clueless.

Then today, I stumbled upon this awesome website.

IMFDB - The Internet Movie Firearms Database.

They have an entry on Detective Conan, especially the firearms the Black Org and FBI uses. The Movies each have their own entry.

... Am rather amused that for Movie 10, they refer to the gun Kid uses to shoot out the windows as 'Kid's MAC-10'. There's no mention of his cardgun. ^__^

Super easy question for y'all (but I can't find my original raws):

How does Hakuba Saguru refer to Aoko? Both in the 1) directly addressing her sense, and 2) talking about her in conversation when she's not present sense.

Also, part two--same question, except switch the person to Keiko.

Thanks all!

Tracking Devices

Gaaaaaaaahhhh... Hitting a complete mental blank.

I know the Detective Boy badges have a tracking device in them that enables the person wearing Conan's glasses to track them.

... Does his dart watch or anything else have a tracking device in them? Vague memories of the glasses also having a tracker in them, but not entirely sure.

Hi! I have 2 quick questions, which might be answered in the show, but I'm only in the early hundreds and I haven't seen any thing on these.
1. Why is Ran living with Kogoro? I have an impression that she chose to stay with him, but I also get a feeling that maybe Eri was too busy to have kept her?
2. At what age did Shinichi's parent's leave him? If I am understanding the manga right, when Ran flew to the States with him, they both were visiting. I know they were in Japan before Tochi died, but beyond that I don't have a clue.

Kogoro belittles Ran, acts like she's stupid, and yells at her a lot. She does have a stronger character, but I do wonder why she doesn't leave to stay with her mom even if its for a short break. Hoping they would get back together isn't a stable enough reason for her to stay and take that abuse. After meeting Conan's mom the first time, it seems like everyone just ignores the issue of his parents. Which, if Shinichi was left alone at a young age, would seem normal to Ran if she grew up where her best friend had absentee parents.

I hope I'm making some sort of sense...

...well that's new

I was re-reading Kid's last case and realized something we may have missed (not sure since I didn't go far enough back in the comm to see, but...

Kid knows. About Shinichi, or at least, that he's Conan. After all, Conan's mother is not known as an actress, but Shinichi's is, and Conan mentions her at the end of the last case, when they're talking about being fans of Ryoma (which then leads into discussion about Kid not being able to resist his mother).

Yes, it's a small detail, but neither boy is known for missing those, and even if Kid didn't know about it before that moment, it wouldn't have taken that long for him to figure it out in the downtime after.

Doesn't change much of the story, but it does add that second layer of confirmation that many have speculated about regarding the matter.

Thoughts? Opinions? Yelling at me for dissecting the manga too much?

Kid Appearances-related question...
by leonawriter (leonawriter)

I'd like to know whether or not the Tantei Koshein case was before or after the Knightmare one in MK, and when the Movies are in relation to the DC arcs.  Specifics aren't really needed, just a general idea of when they were released, so I can figure out what people know at different points.

I wasn't an active fan of the series when most of those bits were released, so that's why I'm asking - it's a thing that's been bugging me.

A brief question and possible future project
by kaitou_pandora (kaitou_pandora)

 How much does Kogoro Mouri/Richard Moore typically earn as a private detective? Would other private detectives (i.e. Heiji Hattori/Harley Hartwell and Saguru Hakuba) earn the same amount as him? I know he gets money from "Conan's" mom for taking care of him, and then there's also the case of Kogoro/Richard earning 500,000 yen to shadow a guy, but I'm not sure how accurate that amount would be given that shadowing the guy was a set-up of a guy's alibi.

(I'm crazy enough to decide that I have to reread every chapter of DC eventually, if only to provide myself with a brief detailed summary of each case. If anyone wants to request anything added to the list of things to look for when I actually do it, comment below and I'll take it into consideration. The summary will have the names of all the characters, method of murder, whether it's plot-related/Kid-related/just plain murder, and possibly my personal reflections on the case, plus volume and anime references. Consider this something like an abridged version of DC, if it ever works out. Expect this project to take a LONG time to be finished.)

Canon Birthdays

current mood: curious

So there's been some discussion about birthdays, the ones we know, the ones we don't know. We know a few canon birthdays.

Shin'ichi = 4 May (From 3rd Movie, Series bible)
Kaito = 21 June (Series Bible)
Saguru = 29 August (3 MK volume)
Aoko = September (4th MK volume)

And as of File 709, we have a new canon birthday:
Eri = 10 Oct. Libra.

Have I missed any? What other birthdays have people heard? What canon evidence is there to back it up?

Police Divisions

This has been a question bugging some of us for a while, and Wren just found the answer on the Japanese Wikipedia.

The Criminal Investigative Section is divided into three divisions.

Division I deals with 'homicide, robbery, assault, assault, kidnapping, barricaded, rape, dealing with crimes such as arson'.

-Megure, Shiratori, Satou and Takagi are all Division 1. In File 708, Satou is referred to as being from 'Division 1, Section 3'.

Division II investigates 'criminal intelligence, Bribery, violation of the election, counterfeit currency, fraud, embezzlement, breach of trust, corporate extortion, tax evasion, financial crimes and illicit trafficking, economic crime, dealing with corporate'.

-Nakamori and the Kaitou Kid Task Force is Division II.

Division III is 'thieves, snatcher, stalking, theft and handling'

And then each division is broken down further from there.
