^ he's been going back there a lot more lately actually.
Also i don't really see what you mean by people looking like each other, other than the main characters(ran, shinichi, kid and heiji all have the same heads, just with different hair and eyebrows), the people involved in the cases generally don't look like any previous people involved in cases unless it actually is the same person. If you're talking about the art style however, then it can't really be helped, I mean no matter what manga ur reading it is drawn by the same person, so obviously the same art style.
Also I actually don't like cases that streches out throughout a whole volume e.g. detective kindaichi. Because it gets streched out and boring, I prefer the short and interesting ones, plus i like the stories about sato and takagi or the other side characters, since it's usually quite fun to read. Also, after 57 volumes it's amazing how some of the cases gosho makes can still be hard to figure out and I'm not talking about the ones that require you to understand japanese either.
And as for kid, for those who are interested, he has his own manga although i think it only goes up to volume 3, since I think gosho has more or less made him a permanent character in conan now
Just a couple nice pieces of info -
1) Magic Kaito (volume 4) just came out in Japan - and there was a special just a few weeks back.
2) It will be scanlated.
you didn't read my message properly i said they tend to look like each other so you can get confused in some of them... i did not say they look alike like they are the same person... so please do not be confused everyone...
do you even know what the meaning of the word tend is?
cos i think what you meant is that "they sometimes look similar", but what you actually said is that "they usually look like each other"
either way, you didn't read my post properly either, of course characters drawn by the same person(i'm sure his staff actually draws the extras, but their style would be similar to his) would look similar for a manga that's been running this long, since the art style is the same. But i have never actually seen a character that looks so much like a previous character from another case that i'm confusing them with the previous character from that other case. Also forgot to add saguru hakuba to the list of characters with same head shapes, but he's a character that originally started in kaito kid anyway and is supposed to resemble kid the way heiji resembles shinichi.
okay whatever you say... im just saying that I get confused and it seems other people are like me... so im not like you who can distinguished them properly... im sorry if you feel hurt that i said what i said but i just said my personal opinion on the matter and how i feel about it and from past post it seems other people are like me
the tend im saying is a short word for tendency and im saying it has the tendency to look a like if you like another meaning i mean it seems to look like or there is some resemblance
well yeah, they are drawn by the same person, but i understand what zmon is getting at. DC has one of the most similar character artwork i've ever seen. and to put it simply if youre not paying close attention, i'm not surprised that youre confused. that's maybe the only thing that i would criticize on. i also really like how the cases arent that long. if you draw out a story thats bound to be solved sooner or later, as a reader, i would get really bored.

finally someone understands me ^^ its not that im saying they are exactly the same as you have been suggesting chinsee... anyway i like the manga very much...
I LOVE DC!!! it's the only series that i've spent so much money on buying movies and manga books and hours of my life on the internet looking for info on!!! xD
And although Kaito Kid technically has his own series, from what I hear (and my own inferences), the Magic Kaito series was discontinued (until he released that special) and Gosho had decided to bring Kid in as a secondary character in DC (although he's becoming more and more important as Conan draws nearing to the BO). ^_^
On a separate note, we should have a thread about the movie(s)-for example the first post could include a summary and a (spoiler-hidden) synopsis for people who want to read about it, and then people can talk about whether or not they liked the movie and the mystery case(s) behind them...xD because i love the movies!
IIRC, few of the cases are really long, sometimes a volume worth... And it's really intense when they do get around to the Black Organisation...
It's been around for a long time, there's a healthy community (magicbulletgirl is one of them, I saw her post on another topic here) that's working on it, it's nice ST finally hosts it...
