FUCK YES !!! Kindaichi > Conan . Their manga is awesome and it ain't dragging like detective conan, take a look at how many volumes Detective Conan has , not to mention their anime episodes .....its over 650 ? That's worse than all shounen anime . Tsk

Perhaps if these OVAs get enough attention, fansubbers would consider subbing the old TV series.

I don't have high hopes for that (unfortunately) but it would be sweeeeeet~

Very interested in this one. Kindaichi is the first detective manga that I read and loved before Detective Conan, thus due to my bias I think it's better than Conan. Will be looking forward to this one.

This one better get subbed. The 1997 TV series is stalled since episode 14 I believe. This is great news.
