Anyone up for a silly post? If Kira from Death Note was facing off against Columbo, who would win? Kira seems the type who's so arrogant and conceited that he'd fail for Columbo's whole routine.

Columbo, the series, was created to normalize police harassment as the police's only investigative technique, by showing you the murder first to pretend they only harass the right guy, and at a more basic level to pretend that there was any investigation at all when too much of the public was becoming aware that the only method the police still used was picking the nearest person from a minority and beating a false confession out of him, "third-degree interrogation", decades after the Wickersham Commission's https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickersham_Commission#Findings "Report on Lawlessness in Law Enforcement". By contrast, Japan openly uses "hostage justice" 人質司法 (ひとじちしほう) as its only investigative technique in the vast majority of cases, whereby a suspect is kept indefinitely in pre-indictment detention, in fixed periods that are invariably renewed, without lawyers present during questioning, until he confesses https://www.hrw.org/news/2019/04/10/call-eliminate-japans-hostage-justice-system-japanese-legal-professionals regardless of guilt. So Columbo, the detective, wouldn't even be needed for Yagami.

However, in a fictional Japan that eliminated "hostage justice", there is an episode of Columbo, the series, that provides the answer to OP's question. It's an early one with the psychologist using his patient to provide him with an alibi after murdering his wife, by dressing up as his wife and acting out a scene with him at the airport. Columbo repeatedly admits that he has no way of getting him on the evidence, he can only get him through her, and the evidence also supports this without needing Columbo to admit to it. Columbo gets the doc to say that he has no feelings for the naive patient and was going to arrange her death if she ever started making demands or blackmailing him. She is secretly listening and at that point agrees to testify against him.

So the doc is sociopathic enough to commit cold-blooded, calculated murder and to use her as a tool, but not sociopathic enough to kill her preemptively to close any avenue of getting to him. In the equivalent scenario, being untouchable on the evidence and never cracking himself, Yagami would have no problem with preemptive murder to close any avenue of getting to him. Therefore in the equivalent scenario Columbo would lose.

Except, of course, that it is precisely the amoral profits-uber-alles sociopath, in other words the capitalist, who commissions and funds police-fellating propaganda like Columbo, the series, in order to fool the sheep into believing that the state's suppression force https://theintercept.com/2020/06/02/history-united-states-government-infiltration-protests/ that grew out of two things, hunting down runaway slaves and crushing unions, is there "for their protection". This provides a second path to the same answer to OP's question, Yagami couldn't lose to Columbo because Columbo would be reined in by the state, because the state wouldn't care one iota about the dead citizens compared to how much it would care about acquiring that novel method of killing people at a distance to use it for its military, which is how you get the research facilities from Elfen Lied.


Hey, can you take this to the politics thread instead? Thanks.

Hey, fellow Anonymage, I hope you're having a good day. Can you explain, just briefly, how Columbo and a clip from The Simpsons "relate to Japanese culture and media", since you did not object to those two, but two posts that provide direct answers to OP's question and explicitly use as part of their justification "hostage justice" 人質司法 and "research facilities from Elfen Lied" do not "relate to Japanese culture and media", since to those two you chose to publicly announce your objection? Thanks.

Here's a catgirl for good vibes.


Holy shit, you are an extremely talented troll.


JFC, no wonder nobody posts on Wizchan anymore.



Not wrong

>If Kira from Death Note


Wait…watching Death Note is what clued you into being a normie casual? Not the fact that he watches Columbo?!


Columbo is old enough most people haven't actually watched it. They just know he's a detective.


>Columbo is old enough most people haven't actually watched it.
Am I the only old person on this chan?


It was last on live television almost twenty years ago.


yes you are lol xd


I had it on tv some month earlier. Good stuff.


>Deathnote, 2003
>about edgy teenagers oneuping each other and dating whores.
>Columbo, 1968
>about an old bumbling policeman with a lazy eye who pretends to be retarded to outwit famous and rich hollywood normies who look down on him.
yes, yes it did.


No, they were still doing reruns as recent as 2017 to my knowledge. Probably still running it to this day.
