[THIS WAS WRITTEN RIGHT AFTER WATCHING IT AND ON MY SOCIAL MEDIA ACC. KEEPING THIS HERE FOR AN ARCHIVE]
Well dragon of doom has to be the fucking strangest films of the franchise I’ve seen yet. Like it made sense plot wise and structurally but that all felt like a continuous fever dream regardless. It was fun tho. More of an emphasis on goemon which was different and appreciated but a very noticeable lack of Zenigata like mf showed up like twice and both times felt like cameos rather than actual character appearances💔
On the art side I noticed it all feeling very Tokyo crisis-y which I
was totally 😍😍😍 over bc that means it’s super easy to tell that the old detective Conan team worked on this mf too!!!!! YASSS!!!!!😍😍😍 It looked 10000x more conan-y than Tokyo crisis too somehow thank you to whatever design team this is idk how they keep showing up but I’m very much fine with it
Overall this is definitely one that’s hard to give a rating on bc i honestly still don’t know what to think of it. It was good the story was better than some of the others I’ve seen (plus the movie girl this time was a poorly written (for lupin movie standards too) evil lady so points for originality and barely being on screen) the art direction was done by the conan team, and the dub was fun and had that early funi shit crust on it that’s always funny, but it’s whole vibe is just SO STRANGE TO ME
For now I spose I shall bestow upon it a good 7.5/10. I think it’s a fair rating
