- This review does not take any considerations of any previous Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo material, and the series will be treated just by itself -

Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Returns is, of course, a sequel to Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo, which was a long running series (148 episodes) in the 90s that has also inspired, movies, OVAs and a live action series. First thing I'll make clear is that you don't really need to watch any previous material to enjoy Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo Returns by itself.

This series target a very specific type of audience, and that's the people who like crime fiction. If you read more

Both involves a smart guy solving cases although Conan is much better.

Anime: Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!
VERY UNDERRATED !!! Very similar art style. Cute round eyes in the girls. The wrestling in Sekai is HOT AS FUCK and I can't help but laugh as Sakura gets punished. I also RESPECT her for the breaking pain and collapsing exhaustion she tries hard to ENDURE from getting wrestled. Try holding HEAVY LUGGAGE with your hands and body, how long can you hang on without giving up and putting it down? I SWEAR, if KINDAICHI appeared in Sekai, He would go help Sakura with her wrestling and cheer her up cause he's such an ADMIRABLE GUY !!!

Anime: Sword Art Online
Kirito and Kindaichi are very charming and handsome. Awesome guys that would risk it all for their loved ones. They are usually cool and relaxed, but when things get serious, they get motivated. Also in common is the theme, weak and crying will do you no good and most likely get you killed.

Kirito - I will protect you with my sword!

Kindaichi - I swear it in the name of my grandfather! (to solve this case/protect you with my deep-thinking intellect)
