That was disappointing - I really don't like "It was all a dream" story lines... :-(

I liked it, since it was something like a possible future where Conan and Haibara never get any conclusion about the organization.

I really enjoyed it. I liked that you could see another possible outcome even though it was just in a dream. I wouldn't want that to actually be their fate anyway so having the dream was fine. ^_^

I really liked it, it was the best of the OVAs imo, besides, it was already obvious that it was a dream, the important thing about this OVA was all the development of the situation, not the end.

I thought it was great. I always wondered what it would be like if Conan never got back to being Shinichi and I think by making it all a 'dream' is the only possible way we can see it. After all, if we got that as an ending many, if not all, of the fans will be really disappointing.

I gave it an 8/10 for keeping me wonder and excited.

I really liked this OVA. But i didnt like the "it was a dream" thing...

Im proud to say Im a Shinichi x Ran fan :) Its very nice of her to wait for Shinichi that long and is willing to wait for another 10 yrs....

And this OVA shows how Shinichi will react if he ever gets the news that Ran will be married to someone else.. he even exposed his true self just to stop her ..

Seeing as this is only an OVA, I liked it.
Only problem is why their personality didn't change over the years O.O

I, on the other hand, like the dream sequence story lines. It's because it shows possible character development....
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I personally like the storyline but I prefer it to be more cute and dramatic than that. With some fangirl imagination I thought of some alternate ending like this:

Ran decided to marry Araide and forget about Shinichi. Then as sickly Conan wakes up from the dream, he will get all jelly and sad as he saw Ran and Araide nursing him together.

Then out of frustration he said, "Ran-neechan is the person closest to me! That's why I want Ran-neechan to nurse me and no one else...Like Shinichi-niichan, I want Ran-neechan to stay by my side forever."

Hearing that, Araide smiled and politely excused himself out of the room. Ran looked at Conan with a smiling face, thinking how cute his face is when he said those cheesy lines in a seemingly spoiled manner. She then replied yes, while making a pinky promise to him. :))

Conan blushed as he found himself clinging to some kind of new hope.
Then he spoke, "I'll remember this promise Ran-neechan".

The END.

"It was all a dream" is acceptable when they so obviously telegraph it as they did and that premise allows them to do something extreme like this, so it's fine.

The problem this thing has is that it lacks direction. We're a fourth of the way through the episode before it finally establishes the "ten years later" thing and for the most part the whole thing is just an exhibition of the +10-years character designs.

Luckily they're decent; Mitsuhiko and Haibara are a bit like their normal heads on a highschooler's body, but everyone else is fairly interesting to look at. Genta in particular gives off a much better impression than the dullard lump he is in his normal design.

It was fine, but not a "bad ending", it's definitely a "normal ending"... Bad ending would start with the dream from the Raven Chaser. Lol.

I was full of fears and my heart was beaten up just like a bird's !!! Omg ... What was that OVA ?! I can say that Shinichi made me so scared ! I REALLY LOVED IT ! O.O
By the way , I wanna say that it must be disgusting to wait for 10 years to become 17 again even though you have to become 27 originally and your friends who have same age with yours in real become 10 years older than you ! Omg ... Just OH MY GOSH ! How can Shinichi get on like this ?! He makes me suprised all the time.
Another sad thing about this OVA is you lose your friends and lover at once and as everyone knows we cannot turn back to the past ...
