Shinichi Kudou, a great mystery expert at only seventeen, is already well known for having solved several challenging cases. One day, when Shinichi sees two suspicious men and decides to follow them, he inadvertently becomes witness to a disturbing illegal activity. When the men catch Shinichi, they dose him with an experimental drug formulated by their criminal organization and abandon him to die. However, to his own astonishment, Shinichi is still alive and soon wakes up, but now, he has the body of a seven-year-old, perfectly preserving his original intelligence. He hides his real identity from everyone, including his childhood friend Ran Mouri and her father, private detective Kogorou Mouri, and takes on the alias of Conan Edogawa (inspired by the mystery writers Arthur Conan Doyle and Ranpo Edogawa).

Animated by TMS and adapted from the manga by Gosho Aoyama, Detective Conan follows Shinichi who, as Conan, starts secretly solving the senior Mouri's cases from behind the scenes with his still exceptional sleuthing skills, while covertly investigating the organization responsible for his current state, hoping to reverse the drug's effects someday.

In 2003, Funimation licensed the first 104 episodes of the series for North American production under the name Case Closed. In 2014, Crunchyroll obtained a license to stream simulcast episodes of Detective Conan on their website.

Ohh great... It's another anime again with the same cliches that's still producing up to this day.

WTF is this? One Piece? Naruto? Pokemon?

Anyways, let's talk about an anime that is still living up to this day. This is... DETECTIVE CONAN (AKA: Case Closed)

First of all, and for the love that is holy, STOP REPEATING THESE CLICHES OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN... This is freaking insanity damn it! Detective Conan is freaking hilarious in so many ways due to this ff. cliches:

- Conan and the rest went to a place.
- Someone get killed
- Someone shrieked and Conan and the rest were surprised
- Asking read more

If you aren't into extremely long series then stop now because when this review was written there were nearly 798 episodes and 19 movies to the series. However, if you're okay with long series that have quite a bit of a repeat in patterns than you'll be just fine.

Detective Conan is about an High School Ace Detective that was well-known for solving cases but one day he "up and vanished" only to be replaced by a pint-sized shrimp known as Conan Edogawa. He stays with a family friend, Mouri Kogoro, who was a detective as well but unfortunately not so well-known...

Time ticks on... Conan digging read more

"I'm not a fan of detective themed shows." Psh. What the hell do you think this is? Scooby Doo? CSI? Law and Order? Get out. Detective Conan is entirely different. And at the same time, it is the mystery/detective genre at its BEST.

Gosho Aoyama's most well known creation tells the story of 16 year old Kudo Shinichi; genius high school detective who one day witnessed illegal trade while on a date at a theme park with his childhood friend Mouri Ran. He is then struck from behind the back of the head with a metal bat by mysterious men wearing all black, and is forced read more

Detective Conan is beyond your average detective anime. What i mean "beyond your average" is that it definitely got "everything" in it. Likely said, it has the funny moments (Humors), it got also Love story (Romance),the Drama, silce of life they do have the very unique plots of stories some are based on the Mysteries (we have know of) and that you will soon know through watching the series, It will give you the thrills and chills because its more than just the crime scene or solving crime since there are storyline which people called arcs. It also let us know more of japan's culture read more

Anime: Death Note
it is somewhat similar because both is about solving a case.., in detective conan there are random cases in death note it ahs only one case, the Kira case~ ... both are good ., those two are anime to watch for! 
reportRecommended by ka-ki
Anime: Tantei Gakuen Q
Both are about young dectives who solve many different cases. While Conan is looking for the people who shrunk him, the Kids in Tantei Gakuen Q are working for a goal and to defeat Pluto... a great series if you like detective shows. 
reportRecommended by Kiyashi
Anime: Gosick
Little children solving cases one after another. While the first one is originally a High School student turned to a boy due to a drug and the second one is purely loli with a dark past, both anime still portrays cases in which needs to solving that range from murder, conspiracy, a black organization and more.

Anime: Spiral: Suiri no Kizuna
Both include mysteries that are fun and interesting!!!

Anime: Hyouka
A high school detective everyone believes is an elementary school student and a high school detective who doesn't believe in his own self.

Anime: Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro
There both about mystery and detective related. The main characters are detectives, or they work for them.
