This is definitely the weakest of the Detective Conan OVAs for me, thus far. The story starts off somewhat interesting, but eventually trails off. Despite Kaitou Kid being featured in the title, and on the cover, he barely shows up, and what we're left with is an empty story where things tend to happen without any real reason, and the mystery that's solved is simple and boring. There's a few funny moments which work well enough, but that's not good enough to fill an entire episode with. By the end, there's no real conclusion to the story, and things just kind of end with there being no actual ending.
The characters are still just as interesting as they are in the show normally, the art is passable, as is the soundtrack. Everything besides the story is passable, but overall, this is a really weak, tepid episode, which doesn't offer up anything significant to the overarching Detective Conan storyline, and also fails to be an interesting stand-alone story. If you're a fan of the show and have a need to watch every episode, feel free to watch it, but for everybody else, I'd say that this one is definitely skippable. read more
