Based on the investigations of the latest episode, I think it was kinda obvious to draw connections between the roses (more specifically the names with the victims) and the reactions of the fire alarm. Quite an easy case to figure out imo although I still found it to be unique in a way.

Kindaichi just had to piece together it like a puzzle from the very start.

Episode 11

Oh man, Takuto's face this episode...


The case itself is still quite thrilling filled with flower symbolism and actual meaning as Misaki described. Episode also takes a violent twist with a direct confrontation in the garden. Seriously though, cases like just just never seems to end well. I expect to see more of Takuto in the future. The background story with the fire in this episode felt kinda cliche imo.

So we got the 1 hour special this week although there will be a break after. Oh well.

Kobyashi seems like a newbie, kinda fitting for a lower rank detective I guess.

I find the episode interesting as it also introduced Akechi, a more capable detective. Yup, I think this episode felt refreshing as well because it didn't just focus on an ordinary case about Kindaichi or his adventures. Idk how I feel about the case itself, seemed kinda of like it was dragging until the second half. Akechi a pretty cool dude even for a detective. Hoping he will make more cameos in the future.

I just came here to investigate this as well, but having not found any answers, I have come to the conclusion that it is probably a two-week break - most 2-cour shows have a one week break about halfway through, but since Kindaichi aired an hour long special, I guess they might be counting that as something to 'tide people over' for two weeks instead (idk I'm clutching at straws here)

Show is back now.

I'm glad it is because it's the start of a new arc involving the legend of a Snow Demon. Hope this will be less predictable as a girl has already disappeared on the skii trip.

This case has been one of my favorite so far. I'm starting to suspect that either the culprit may be getting help or knows external knowledge about one of the victims. Either way, the clever trick using the temperature was interesting. Nothing complicated but almost threw some of the guests off except Kindaichi. I hope they solve the case soon as the culprit really is a mastermind behind the disappearances.

I am so happy to see another season! One of my favorites and the reason I started using crunchy roll! I just finished the first case of season 2! However, I was very disappointed with...



Anyway I am happy to see the English subtitle for this show which is one of my favorites. Too bad they do not have an English dub or anymore mangas released in English anymore.

This latest case has been rather strange. I like it with the Marriage of the Fox theme but didn't find it too complex. It's just a shame that friends from the past can't always get along...

Really like how it ties together between the storytelling though.

I hated this show at first (I watched the first nine episodes), but started to enjoy it somewhat after checking out some in the second season. The writing seemed to improve significantly.

Was the latest episode the last one? Somebody's comment seemed to indicate that it was...

I have been watching this and Conan since the season just ended for most of the anime I was following , these 2 anime are my inbetween season anime

There are more murders in Kindaichi's cases lol and everytime he said that line .... man ..it sure start to sound annoying lol after watching so many Kindaichi cases in a row

Anyway...

the nice thing with the more seasoned anime is that its good to hear veteran seiyuu still working

but at the same time its also sad that they hardly get any parts in any new anime not unless their characters are older.

I remembered both Nakamura san and Sugitan san were saying in their online show how most of the characters they audition for are getting older as well. The japanese seiyuu industry is very conscious about the age and looks of the seiyuu they pick and of course their popularity.
