Fictional reasoning:In the name of fiction, the truth of reasoning

Fictional Reasoning is coming to an end, and although there is still one of the final four solutions to be found, it does not prevent us from analyzing the innovation of Fictional Reasoning — or the original work of the Steel Man Seven Programs of Fictional Reasoning.(Note: This article will briefly introduce the final four-fold answer. Although it will not involve the specific answer, it will somehow let some sensitive viewers guess the answer, so those who are worried about the reveal can avoid it or skip the reveal part.)

(Note: The following term “Fictional reasoning” refers to the original work of the Seven Seta of the Steel Man)

First, “Fictional Inference” is a mystery novel?

Fictionalized Mystery is mystery, the obvious conclusion.

The question of how to define mystery fiction is a very large one, and it has nothing to do with what this article is about. But if we look at the common patterns of mystery novels, we will find that most mystery novels have several elements in common — the mystery, the solution, and the volt or mystery that supports the solution.

Throughout the development of mystery novels, whether it is the early Sherlock Holmes series (although the series is relatively missing), the famous works of Agatha Christie, John Dixon Carr and Ellery Quinn in the classical mystery period, or the works after the Japanese Shin-Binge, such as the early works of Awaji Tsuji in the Homological Hall Incident, Recently, for example, Masahiro Imamura’s “The Mystery of the Corpse Village” and so on, even if the screenwriter of the next door “Alien Invasion” (if I remember correctly), Wang Taro Maliki’s work “Disco Detective Wednesday”, in the radio and the setting and solution of the rage, still can see many can support the solution of the volt line.

Therefore, in this sense, although we cannot confirm that Fictional Reasoning is a mystery by definition, in general, Fictional Reasoning meets the 1) mystery of how to explain the events of the Seven Seta; 2) The solution — the four-fold solution given by Koko Wanaka; 3) Volt line – the answer to the use of various clues, such as the existence of the notebook, the relationship between the seven set sisters, cigarettes, the setting of the Interpol and so on have appeared before the answer, so it can be said that “fictional reasoning” is a mystery novel, this is beyond doubt.

2. Multiple solutions in mystery novels

Before detailing the innovation of Fictional Mystery, we should first introduce the multiple solutions of mystery novels.

Multiple solutions, simply put, are the same event, with the preceding volt line can be inferred to get different solutions, and the final can perfectly explain the truth of the answer is the “true solution”, and in addition to the “true solution”, not the truth of the answer is the “false solution”.

What most readers or viewers are most familiar with is that some not entirely reasonable “pseudo-solutions” are given by non-detectives (such as the very familiar Maori Ngoro), and the “true solutions” are given by detectives at the end. The meaning of “pseudo-solutions” seems to be only to eliminate interference items for readers or viewers.

However, in fact, in mystery novels, “pseudo-solutions” are not just “exclusion” function, some of the “pseudo-solutions” the degree of logical rigor, the degree of volatile recovery, the degree of cunning whimsy are comparable to “true solutions”.

For example, in the works of Ma Ye Xing Song “dark with wings”, before and after thrown out a number of very good quality “pseudo-answer”, one of the pseudo-answer, but also won the welcome of many mystery novel lovers, although the answer is “false”. At the end of the novel, it is not even clear whether the last one is true or not, and the seemingly “true” solution can be a “false solution.”

For example, in Inoue’s true and false work The Poisoned Cup of Saint Mary; several parallel “false answers” even become the main body of the novel.

Why is this fascinating form of multiple solutions?

The reason, again, lies in the nature of the mystery novel — the mystery, the solution and the curve. “Puzzle” is a problem to be solved; “solution” is the strategy to solve the problem, and “volt line” as a number of solvable tools.

For example, if we want to repair a broken computer (puzzle), we can do it ourselves, we can contact the buyer, we can call relatives and friends, and we can even pray to heaven (solution), we can do it ourselves or call friends, the premise is that this person has the ability to repair the computer, even if it is to pray to heaven, As long as the rule that “there is a god in the world who does fix computers” is established (volt line), the solution is still valid.

The fun of mystery novels is not only the truth of the event, but how the event will be solved under the foundation of the previous text. The fun of multiple solutions (or the fun of mystery novels) is built on this.

3. What is the innovation of Fictional Reasoning?

In the mystery novel category, in fact, there are many distinctive works. But the most classic pattern is the legend of murder. We are very familiar with the mystery comic “Jungian a young incident book”; “Detective Conan” also has a lot of legend murder.

This kind of “mystery” is often set up by a demon or undead, causing unsolvable crimes (such as the Chamber of Secrets). Of course, in the end, after the detective to solve the problem, the so-called monster or spirit of the disguise is uncovered; the murderer is often ordinary human, using a variety of magical tricks to achieve the unsolvable crime.

If we look at the structure of such mysteries, we will find that the “false solution” in these works is often that the dead kill people, while the “true solution” is that human beings commit crimes. And these “true solutions” bring about a fatal contradiction — reality and story.

Realistic murder may not be so interesting in mystery novels, while some impractical but very imaginative solutions are the romance of mystery novels.

This is easy to understand because, as mentioned in the previous section, the fun of mystery novels is “what the solution will be”. If the solution is “hiding behind the door” and “dropping the key when no one is ready”, although very realistic and feasible, it does not break the scope of our imagination and therefore is not very interesting.

However, Fictional Reasoning solves this contradiction by changing the traditional “true solution” into “false solution”.

Since the fun of a mystery novel is to come up with unrealistic, catchy solutions, that’s it.

So, the stage of “fictional reasoning” was built up — in order to eliminate due to people’s imagination and born of the dead “steel man seven program”, must attract the attention of those people online, with a kind of attractive, interesting, mystery novel type answer (story), to let the wind direction of public opinion change. Let the mystery novel become “mystery novel”, thus well solve the “true solution” reality and story this contradiction.

The reason why it is called “mystery novel style” is that the four pseudo-solutions in “Fictional mystery” almost all uses the common elements of mystery novels.

[Note: The following contents involve part of the bottom discharge]

For example, the first answer: physical trickery, should be the Detective Conan fans familiar with the genre; But there is also the familiar pattern of the accidental killer mystery novel (though I dislike the term myself);

Second answer: suicide frame, also do not know why will be very common a common trick;

The third part of the solution: the relationship of the misunderstanding is a common logic in mystery novels, although not a separate trick, but as a reversal point is very common;

The fourth solution: identity argument is also a common reversal point in mystery novels.

[Bottom discharge part has ended]

Thus we can see that Fictional Mystery completely reverses the structure of traditional mystery novels, treating the dead killing as the “true solution” and the common trick elements of mystery novels as the “false solution”.

Nonetheless, a favorite technique of mystery writers who write multiple solutions, linking fake solutions together as a basis for a true solution, is also used in the fourth fake solution of Fictional Mystery. The last pseudo solution is a combination of virtual and real, quite volt line recovery, series solution taste. In this sense, Fictional Mystery is indeed a standard mystery novel.

Iv. Summary and works recommendation

The above is a simple analysis of Fictional Reasoning.

In a word, Fictional Mystery, as a mystery novel, reverses the structure of traditional mystery novels and rationalizes the contradictions of “true solution” in traditional mystery novels. However, it can also see many common elements and techniques of mystery novels, which can be said to be a bold innovation under the premise of inheriting its spirit and framework.

Of course, as a mystery novel with a special structure, I wonder if animation will not be too friendly to the audience of non-mystery works. That’s why I wanted to write a long review at the end of this show about what makes Fictional Reasoning so appealing.

Admittedly, I’m not a big fan of the genre (because I don’t like the idea of repeating a paragraph over and over again (I didn’t realize this was a drawback after animation)), but I do appreciate the creativity of Fictional Mystery.
