My bias does come out for many predominant "Shinichi-Ran" cases but this particular one was nice since the flashback journeyed to grade school (where everyone is cute no matter what). The idea that you could write a message with mahjong tiles was also very interesting and yet hilarious with its connotation (kyu, kyu, kyu).
The story is fair - unlike most Detective Conan arcs, this is more "cute" than heart pounding (there is actually really no mystery to be solved here). The art drastically improved since the last Magic File and is basically on par with most new Conan animations. Sound as always, is decent. The characters themselves are fine (my bias against Ran does make me rate it lower) but overall enjoyment is quite good.
As with the other OVA's in the Magic File series, they are not often necessary to understand per say but (as the real fans know) it fleshes the story. read more
