work on Magic Kaito . . . it's never come out regularly, and it
seems like more of a side project to his main series (Yaiba, then
Conan). Maybe all of his better ideas went into his weekly
series? ^^; It's probably a good thing for him that it's come
out so irregularly, though, because too much work leads to burnout.

ep 219, but only for the manga. Originally, that clock tower story
in ep 219 was a Magic Kaito story in the manga (2 chapters, released
in Shounen Sunday in 1999), but ep 76 (vol 16 file 6-9; released in
1997) was a case in Conan from the start. So as far as the manga
goes, the two stories are still unrelated, and according to my theory,
would still be in different continuities. The anime crew seems to have
no care for keeping continuity (as demonstrated here, and in many
other cases), so they placed the MK story into the Conan anime unchanged.
But in a nutshell, I think the timeline in Conan is just impossible
to logically explain. ^^;; Just look at the passage of the seasons,
and how everyone is in the same grade they were at the beginning of
the series . . . One can't explain continuity in the anime, and it's
almost as hard to explain it in the manga. And I don't think we
the readers are expected to try to explain it, either . . . though
it is fun to try. ^_~
