I've also read my fair share of Rampo stories, and no, Shadow Man and 20 Faces are not the same character. Shadow Man btw was a full length novel and not a short story, I think you remembered that...

I will still weep for what it could have been.
Both the Human Chair and Shadow-Man plot have been reduced to mere name-drops on rather clichÚd writing. Especially Rampo's Shadow-Man was really good...

I would generally agree, though not with the comedy aspect.

Only that so far the "mystery" isn't that much above a typical fanservice show, so in my eyes the show still has to redeem itself.


Kobayashi was described as a young, beautiful boy, with his...

Though I would still bring up the counter-argument (which is my personal opinion of course) that Kobayashi is not a well drawn trap. Kurapika and the likes are still sort of identifiable as boys, be...

I'd have to agree with this, I don't see most of the stances against the Kobayashi character as that much grounded in any homo- or transphobia, but more in the fact that he isn't even much of a well...

I'd also rather go with the 30 year gap than the 20 year gap, but on the other hand, Battler could also just look really horrible for a 50 year old. I know from experience how especially sickness can...

You should probably put very few things past Kinzo. And even a dead man can be capable of causing quite the ruckus with what he left behind.


Glad to hear that.

The question here is, would you put it past Kinzo to violate a family member? And if you believe that he could, what would that tell about him?!

I'd also say that it was probably the strongest of the four arcs, but it also looses quality as the episodes go on. They probably shouldn't have blown the budget on the Virgillia Beato battle.
