I loved everything about this volume: the long plot tying up some of the threads from the New York arc; the involvement of side characters like Harley and Vivian; and the incredible art (man, Aoyama just keeps leveling up! it's wonderful, and increases the reread value of each succeeding volume), especially the screentoning in the ghost ship/Jodie arc. But I admit I'm totally biased, because a huge amount of the story was about Anita, and she is my favorite!

So there was no way I could fail to lo

Mungkin di komik ini gak ada Shinichi, tapi ceritanya keren abis. Penyamaran Heiji jadi Shinichi dan Conan jadi Ai itu super cool dan aku suka suka suka suka suka suka sukaaaaaaaa banget. Cerita waktu Vermouth ketemu Jodie dan mereka ngomoooong mulu tembak-tembakannya di-pending. Udah gitu, ada acara Ran muncul tiba-tiba dari bagasi mobil gara-gara denger bunyi tembakan. Ditambah ada Calvados yang ngumpet-ngumpet di balik benda-yang-entah-apa-namanya itu, terus tiba-tiba muncul Shuichi Akai, dan ...more

Honestly the best one so far! Revelation after revelation, suspense, all plot progression, zero filler, and lots of trolling on the part of the author! XD
Finally more information about the men in black, this is getting interesting! :)
ini baru kasus keren abis.. banyak banget penyamaran di sini. conan menyamar jadi ai haibara, heiji menyamar jadi shinichi kudo, vodka menyamar jadi salah satu peserta kapal hantu, vermouth menyamar jadi dokter araide.. dua kasus yg jadi satu.. satu kasus di kapal hantu yg dipecahkan shinichi hattori,, satu kasus lagi antara fbi vs black organization yg dihadapi conan haibara.. dan ternyata sharon dan chris vinyard itu orang yg sama :-o
Vol. 41 had some legitimate tension leading up to this one, and this volume had a nice payoff. I keep expecting some sort of resolution, and then I remember this dumb series is like a million volumes and still going, so that's never going to happen. But it was a nice break from the formulaic non-story cases that are all becoming instantly forgettable.
This is one of the better volumes, as Aoyama brings together several long-running plot threads to advance the "myth arc" of the Black Organization. There's a nicely convoluted clash of plan and counterplan.

Absolutely brilliant. Tying off a heap of loose ends was great. I'm excited for the next ones

“Detectives are only human; we're not Gods that know everything. When detectives tell their theory, in reality, most are rather anxious.
