🪄 まじっく快斗 Volume 1 (36% ➨ 49%)

Things escalated quickly for this series…

This chapter involves a professor who kidnaps Kaito, and makes a robot clone of him, the clone kills the professor, and the clone keeps Kaito captive to drain knowledge/memories from.

I find it funny that I can buy into all the suspension of disbelief required for Detective Conan, but for Magic Kaito it can be a bit more difficult.

I suppose it’s not dissimilar to the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect. Kaitou Kid can swap from one face to another in seconds? No problem. Robot is able to present itself as a human, act as human, and convince others that it is human? Impossible (at least for 1988).

So long as the robot is able to act so human-like, it’s good that it has some ambitions in life (even if ruling the world is a little cliché).

And then everything manages to wrap up soon after. It’s going to take a little getting used to reading stories that fit entirely, from start to finish, within a single chapter.
