Indexer Notes

Miss Kobayashi mentions in the story how the Junior Detective League resembles the "Detective Boys" characters from the novels of Rampo Edogawa, a Japanese detective fiction author. Rampo Edogawa is one of the authors Gosho Aoyama took Conan's alias from (Arthur Conan Doyle being the other), and admits the Junior Detective League is influenced by the "Detective Boys" novels.
