** Apparently the writer believes in a claim that [[spoiler:rumor can't be tracked when and who spread it]] since similar things happened in "Legend of Amakusa Treasure". To elaborate, [[spoiler:the killer spread a rumor about "White-haired Ghost" in less than 3 months bbefore Amakusa Trasure Hunting was conducted. The thing is, even the tour guide said that it was an old story passed between children in the village!]]

* AngstWhatAngst: Reika considering all she's been through. [[spoiler: Her father was murdered in a botched kidnapping, the man she thought was her father was actually the kidnapper/murderer (though it's clear he genuinely loved Reika as his own) who then murdered a man to protect his secret and was then murdered in turn by her long-lost brother who then sacrificed himself to save her with Reika reflexively yelling out "ONIICHAN!" just as he was buried by an avalanche, and she was also kidnapped by her envious, bitter manager in a later case. How this girl hasn't had nervous breakdown is a feat unto itself./spoiler]]

* FridgeLogic: In the very first case, Hajime [[spoiler: should have been tipped off that someone brought a functional weapon to the theater when PhantomOfTheOpera needed no such thing. However, Hajime did admit that he didn't read the entire script the first time, he should have noticed that someone sneaked in a weapon.]]

* ValuesDissonance: One case involved a tragedy behind [[spoiler: a secret marijuana farm.]] The events that led to the tragedy might seem very excessive in American viewer's eyes but in Japan, [[spoiler: marijuana]] is portrayed as the worst thing ever.

* CriticalResearchFailure: In "The Santa Slayings," Kindaichi says that the story about oerseus and Medusa tells of how Perseus make Medusa look into his shield, which was shiny enough to be useable as a mirror, in order to make her look at her own face and thus get [TakenForGranite turned to stone.]] You don't need to be a scholar to know that this is as wrong as it possibly could be. The myth actually tells of how Perseus looked at the reflection of Medusa in his shield in order to be able to see her without being literally petrified by fear. That was the entire point of the shield, and Kindaichi's version is as wrong as claiming that Superman is strengthened by kryptonite.
