Is this sequal to the old one or is it different .

Is it reboot of the original ????

Or has it started from where old one left .

you can watch any season randomly and understand the story.. they're episodic mysteries with no continuous storyline (unlike conan)

Oh fuck yes! Still have to complete the first season (at least the translated ones) and the sequels, but more murder detective series can only be a good thing. I fucking love Toei.

I still need to see the first season for the "return series" that aired last year.

But if its anything like the quality of the 1997 anime, then oh boy count me in.

Like the 1997 one, there's a few gold episodes and a few meh episodes, I guess. It's not super consistent overall, honestly.
Ah, I see, that should be cool then. Yes, the original series does have it's slumps. Where some of the set-ups are waaaaay too convenient to be believable or some of the plot-twists receive inadequate foreshadowing leading up to the development and decide to info-dump all at once (which is the kind of writing I loath). Though I wont deny that many episodes do exhibit clever writing.

been a fan for this series since i was very little, owned a lot of comic from the file series (1993-1997 one) and some of the newer one (because kindaichi is a bit rare in my country's comic store compared to Conan so it's a bit harder to find), watched the anime of it (the newer one) and i must say that i'm waiting for this

Anyways, looking forward to it for sure. Young Black Jack and this show should be interesting for Fall.

I guess a lot of people who still avoid this do it because the original series is too long and not completely translated. Maybe they don't know that you can enjoy the the new series without having seen the prequel.
