Otaku Evolution Episode 121 - Case Closed: Captured in Her Eyes

Body: 

Fuck TMS. Seriously. They've flagged this a several times already and I've had to re-edit and upload to see if I can beat the algorithm. They're being more draconian than with Lupin videos. They're just REVIEW VIDEOS! If this keeps up, I'll have to move the video to Dailymotion or Bitchute or whatever. Otherwise the review will be about four minutes long and just have static screencaps, making it all the more the glorified slideshows my videos usually are.

 

Anyway, Case Closed (Detective Conan): Captured in Her Eyes is pretty standard Conan fare, not being especially stand out, but being pretty decent. It still has a number of flaws, though, and I'm more than willing and able to nitpick this thing for chuckles.
