SynopsisShinichi 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.

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 "What happened?" and the shriek-er pointing to a corpse.
- Conan and the rest doing some investigations
- Conan Suddenly solved it's puzzles
- Conan shots Mori using a sleeping needle(?) device.
- Conan uses his voice ribbon device to voice Mori
- Conan told them that one of those people that were inside of the room is the killer
- Conan explains then reveals
- The suspect denies it's allocation
- Conan explains it's evidence he encounters
- The Suspect still not convinced and ask about the proof
- Conan then explains it all and the suspect surprised about it
- Either Someone or Conan asks why he/she did the killings
- The suspect then explains that the victim is His/her fault that's why the suspect kills the victim
- And The Suspect has plead guilty
- Tune in next time on Detective Conan! Next Episode: "Repeat the Progress"
Do they running out of ideas? I mean, that's it? Also, I suspect that Conan is the real threat of the whole killing scenario, for short, he's the "Bad Luck Brian" of the anime. ("Bad Luck Conan"). Why? Well, if you watch every single episode of Detective Conan, every single one of those residence/guests of that particular place where Conan and the rest of the gang are staying, were being killed and one or few of them is the suspect. (Sigh)
Also, there's some another cliche. Whenever Conan drinks something like a Growth Hormone or something, he became Shinichi Kudo. But that Growth Hermone has a "Cinderella Effect", meaning that whenever that time comes, his body will return to his child form (AKA Conan) with some painful side effects.
Also, that's not all, there are so many cliches here in Detective Conan that I can't even count to my fingers how many are they. And that's why I dropped it all off even though it is fun to watch.
I can't say how big is the universe of Detective Conan is when it comes to it's character's development. I mean, everytime Conan and rest went somewhere, There's new characters but with the same old cliches. So, it's no surprise there. But sometimes, there's no murder happening here.
Damn, Look, I'm done... And I don't care if there are some episodes that doesn't involve murders and killings. Because after that none murder episode, they just went back to same ol' shit... Sorry... But that's how Conan is to be when it comes to these things... There's nothing new. There are also some episodes that involves about Ran and Shinichi and other main characters that will connect to each main storyline. But... Most are about murders so... I guess we will never see Conan to becoming an adult (much like Ash in Pokemon) and stay young forever.
(sigh) Ohh well, it's Detective Conan alright... What do you expect? Do you think Conan will return to his original form as Shunichi Kudo? Heh... We'll see about that... read more
It's funny. I'm not the type of person that would sit in front of the TV all day, watching CSI series, but somehow, "Detective Conan" really changed that outlook.
'Detective Conan" is about a teen detective by the name of Shin'ichi Kudo (known in the dub as Jimmy), who has a charismatic skill of solving crimes that leave the police force and its leading investigators baffled and astounded. One night, when Shin'ichi is at the amusement park with his childhood friend Ran Mouri, he whitnesses two strange men dressed in black carrying out an illegal trade. While watching, he's accosted from behind by one of the men, forcefed a drug intended to kill him, and knocked out.
When Shin'ichi wakes up, he finds that the drug didn't kill him, but has caused his body to shrink down to the size of a seven-year-old boy. Shin'ichi confides in his neighbor, the crazy scientest Hiroshi Agasa, who informs him not to tell anybody else about his condition for the safety of those around him and provides his with gadgets to help him around, such as a bowtie that can duplicate any voice and a wrist stun-gun used to put people to sleep. Shin'ichi then goes under the alias "Conan Edogawa" to conceal his identity. In order to get information about the men responsible for his small body, he lives as a surrogate brother to Ran and helps out her father, Kogoro Mouri, who is a mediocre detective with poor deduction skills.
Following Kogoro on cases assigned to him, Conan tries to help behind the scenes any way he can. The problem is that no professionals want to listen to a kid's advice, so "Conan" deducts as other work. After balancing out all the evidence, he gets everyone's attention through knocking Kogoro out with a stungun, hiding behind him, and dupliicating his voice while explaining the case.
While not that popular of an anime in North America (despite finding a fair audience among Americans), Conan has a great amount of success in Japan, spanning more than 450 episodes(and STILL GOING!!), 55 tankoban, 10 movies, and 16 OVAs.
At first I thought this anime wasn't all that interesting and was poorly animated (stopped thinking that after finding it was made in 1996), but after watching the dub more on Adult Swim, I got more attached to the characters, storyline, and everthing that made the show so admirable. For two years I watching both the English and Japanese versions, bought merchandise, and tried to work my way up to the current story development in the manga.
Leaving off the personal experience bits I thought about putting in, I'll get to the qualities that make "Detective Conan"such a favorite to the Japanese and other nationalities as well.
Now starting with the artwork, I'll have to go out on a limb and say that it can take some adjusting to at first, with the pointy, "barely-there" noses, the round eyes, and "jug ears" and all the other oddities in the art. It'll eventually grow on you, nonetheless. Also, the artstyle advances to higher quality in both the anime and manga as animation methods and improve as well as Aoyama's drawing skills, so the artwork still is able to better itself.
The background music for the series really gives it that "classic detective drama" feel. It's a combination of jazz, some saxophone jams both slow and quick, as well as some themes that play in the background on occasion. It sets teh atmosphere and tone for the format and purpose for the playing of the episodes.
The cast of characters starts to build thoughout the series, from the tough but sensitive Ran and the overconfident Kogoro to the brooding Ai Hiabara and the individual members of the Metropolitan Police Force. All of them have distinct personalities that may not develop quickly, but are interesting to explore while watching this long series.
The cases, murder cases, suicide cases, puzzles, kidnappings, and cases involving those men in black and their organization, are so brilliantly laid out. You just want to watch every darned bit of the episode to see the conclusion. The way Shin'ichi uses his logic in each episode just makes one think, "Whoa. This show's amazing." And the series can get somebody hooked with just deductions alone. However the episodes play out in almost the same format, kind of like Law & Order, with the same episode formula, but different twists and clever setups in the cases that keep viewers coming back for more every time.
Overall, "Detective Conan" is all that and a bag of chips, being possibly my ultimate favorite as well as the favorite of many other fans. It can be a bit boring for those that hate being overloaded with details, but mystery fans and intellectuals are bound to love it. 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 to consume an experimental drug that was supposed to kill him, but is instead transformed into a 7 year old boy while maintaining his intellect. To track down these men, he conceals his true identity to protect his loved ones from any sort of danger and opts to live with his childhood friend because her father owns a detective agency and believes that information regarding the mysterious men may be reported to this agency. This marks the beginning of endless encounters and
complicated mysteries, most of which only he can solve.
I was immediately captivated when I started watching Detective Conan in 2003. I was 14 years old and by then it was already a fairly old anime that made its premier 7 years prior. I am now 24 years old. Making it's debut in 1996, it has produced over 600 episodes in roughly 20 seasons, over 16 movies, countless OVAs and is STILL going strong. Detective Conan is my favorite anime of ALL TIME. Yeah, i said it. Where do I begin with such a flat out brilliant series? Everything about the anime is simply extraordinary. But what really makes Detective Conan, as well as what makes it my all-time favorite anime all comes down to two things. The first one is the
The cases and mysteries in this anime are mind blowing. I can't emphasize this enough. The writer is a GENIUS. This show is a sigh of relief from the Scooby-Doo inspired cartoons that presented mysteries to you, that a blind donkey could solve in 20 seconds. The storylines are all well thought out, and the solutions to mysteries are NOT obvious, but can be solved by an observant viewer who thinks, just as Conan does. There will be many cases where you will be utterly stunned by the cleverness of the solution. Whether it's the murder cases, the romance elements, or the comedy factors, every episode is very well-put together. I learn something new JUST about every episode due to the fact that the writers put so much heart and effort into their work. One example being episode 616 takes place in London. Don't worry, this review is spoiler free, so keep reading. Did you know that Gosho Aoyama personally went to London himself to gather materials and data at the exact places
the scenes take place during the anime, due to the fact that the main character (Kudo shinichi) is a Sherlock Holmes freak, and he wanted to give the scenes and story of the birthplace of Sherlock Holmes justice? Pretty impressive and praise worthy if you ask me. Anyways, aside from the various ways to kill someone, it teaches you about japanese tradition/culture, medical terminology, world famous structures/figures, and much much more. I soak up Detective Conan like water to a sponge. I get so absorbed and drawn into every episode, that everything around me becomes irrelevant and it's just me and the episode. It's captivating. There is no other word for it. EVERY episode is fresh, and EVERY mystery that is solved is profound. The series has wide appeal and I would say it is one of the few shounen animes I have seen that
breaks down age barriers with ease. This is a series that plays to adults just as well, if not more so than to children. I occasionally watch this with my 56 year old father, and can say that he can enjoy watching it as well.
The story is broken into 2 kinds of arcs. I call them the "main arc" and the "everyday arc". The "everyday arcs" reside over small, one to two episode cases that occur on a normal daily basis, and sometimes have generally nothing to do with the main arc, but are usually very interesting in their own right. These are NOT filler episodes. They are simply everyday occurences that the main cast go through on a daily basis, waiting patiently for clues to make progress. Then there's the "main arc". The "main arc" is of course the main storyline and the episodes where progress between the main characters and the main plot advance forward. Getting to watch these episodes that allow the main storyline to progress is similar to the feeling of receiving all the presents you wanted on Christmas day because you waited ever so patiently to get them. Sure the same cycle/pattern occurs almost every episode. And by this cycle I mean that someone dies, and someone is caught as the culprit. But these patterns are executed with grace and near flawlessness that allow you to never get tired of watching this cycle. There is a build up of hype and anxiousness that make you want to see progress of the "main arc". There are usually long waits between episodes where the plot moves forward, but if you're patient enough, you'll be rewarded with an unbelievable storyline you will NEVER forget. Most fans, myself included, seem to have grown accustomed to this style and have come to enjoy it.
The second factor that really makes this anime is none other than the characters. What would the show be without it's godly cast of characters? Nothing.
Each character is engaging and filled with so much depth and personality, it's hard NOT to love every single one of them. In short, I TRULY believe that they are the greatest cast I've seen as a whole, in ANY anime series that I've ever watched. I love these characters. The episodes that have the occasional reccuring characters appear, are the ones that you will truly enjoy. The relationships and interactions between the main characters and these reccurring characters is character synergy at it's maximum level. I won't go into any detail about specific characters because that would spoil the whole thing for those who have yet to watch Detective Conan. And if by chance you were to start watching from episode 1, and the character art is too old for you, I'd have to remind you that this anime was started in 1996 and the
character art has since been modernized and revamped. Give it time and I PROMISE it WILL grow on you. Anyways, putting all these factors into words to describe these god-like character creations will never be enough to capture how BEAST they truly are. You'd have to watch it to understand.
The catchphrase for this anime is “There is always only one truth!”... And the truth is, this anime Kicks Ass.
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 and traditions, you could learn japanese as well (yeah, this is the only anime which i learn/know alot of japanese more than any other animes). You would know also the life of occupations of people in real life and for the overall, as the anime progresses it really gives you the satisfaction (even have movies,ovas,specials and magic files).
What's more fun about it, is that you can exercise your detective skills on who is the culprit on this case. If you got it right, thats a job well done for you and if not, you will get to improve yourself more and more.
The Story follows the adventures of Shinichi Kudo (also known as Jimmy Kudo in Case Closed) a Prodigious young detective who was inadvertently transformed into a child due to poison. It was all started when Shinichi Kudo was in suspicious of the two men dressed in all black. He went to investigate those persons in outskirts of Tropical Land, but only to find out unaware one of the suspicious man in blacks knocks him out from behind and gives him a prototype poison to kill him. And instead of dying because of that poison, it he made him shrinks down to the size of a seven year old. He was suggested by his close friend and Professor Agasa that must keep his identity secret because the Black Organization will kill him and others associated with him should they discover the truth. He will be renaming himself Edogawa Conan to hide his identity in order to protect his beloved ones. He later moves into Ran and Mouri Kogoro.
Even as Conan, he still continues in solving cases one after the other, He help build up Kogoro's reputation in hoping to find cases related to the syndicate called the Black Organization, who were responsible for his transformation in the first place.
Known as Case Closed & Meitantei Conan; Creator/Artist: Gosho Aoyama
Since: Anime: Jan 8, 1996 & Manga: Feb 4, 1994 (both on-going)
And as you can see the reasons of why i like it much is all written from above as you can read, in addition, its the only anime for me that is irreplaceable and have a big impact in my life and you can appreciate that being a detective is cool and fun work indeed :D and Gosho Aoyama, A+ on your work ,especially Detective Conan. The very 1st anime that i ever watch that has the longest ever (but it deserves to be)
Its an anime/manga for all ages. If ever you are new or old to anime/manga take a chance to watch or read it and you will see Just Give it a try.Up until now, i'm keep on watching it haha. so addicting and more new characters + more stories on it that will soon to unveil everything read more
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!
They both need to find criminals and murders happen in every cases much like death note but real culprits :D!
Both series are filled with mind battles, cat and mouse games, psychological battles, and thier main focus is on a detective trying to put the clues together to capture a criminal. Although neither anime focuses on action, their fast paced deductions, and dramatic scenes will put any action series to shame, as both shows have the punch of an action show, and the intellegence of a character drama (You will feel like your watchign some fast paced action show, although action isn't really present in either show). Both are smart well written series, with very interesting characters. L and Jimmy Kudo (Shinichi Kudo) are two of the smartest detective in all of anime and very similur. The cat and mouse game between L and Light is very suspenseful and thrilling, and the same for Jimmy's cat and mouse game with the many criminals. And Jimmy's endless serach for the Men in Black that streches the series lenght is very similur to L fighting Light. It's all very engaging.
The difference is Case Closed is episodic with bits of overarching plot seeping in every once in awhile, while Death Note has a few archs, but overall is one story from start to finish.
Mind battles, detectives, murders, crimes, police, geniuses, suspense, strategies.
Not to mention that Takagi and Matsuda are so similar it hurts.
Detective Conan has more typycal shounen elements, and is not as psychological neither as good as Death Note, and is much longer than the latter.
Mystery surounding teenagers, cropping up into their lives. On one side (DC) you have high schooler Shinji who solves these crimes, while on the other (DN) you have light, who creates locked room senarios where it is the ultimate locked room.
Both include detective-like logic for solving cases. Death note is like a cat and mouse game with L hunting down Light trying to get him arrested for using the death note. Conan has less storyline because it has more cases than one.
Epic Battles of minds, except DC gives you a new challenger every season or so. If you like strategy, suspense, and complex human relationships, either Death Note, or DC work for you.
I'm sure many of you out there have seen the great hit Death Note, but may have glanced over Detective Conan or "Case Closed." Or maybe even the other way around! Both shows share the value of intelligence, cunning, planning, and deducing the actions of others. Both forged with great storylines, they are really deserve a good watch. The main differences are that Death Note is a bit "darker" both in color and in terms of death, while Case Closed is a much longer series with a little worse artwork, and the plot of each individual episode is what's important while the plot of the series as a whole takes the backseat. If you like either of these series, or just the elements they share, I implore you to check both of them out for a good watch!
They are both similar in the fact that you must grind your brain to decipher Conan's latest theory, or Light's next way to outsmart L. The story in both of these animes is excellent, and really worth watching. I can't stress how much you need to watch DESU NOTO or Detective Conan. The main characters are both very intelligent, and this helps. For example, you could have a main character like Naruto, who is annoying and dim-witted, but the show itself is great.
Both has that element of crime-solving.
Death Note focuses on two things: Justice and Death, Detective Conan obviously & mainly deals with Justice, but not death. Although, I could argue that Conan and L. are very similar characters who both obtain a very great desire for their viewpoint of "justice," that killing is a crime, no matter the circumstances.
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.
When it comes to the mystery genre for Anime and Manga, both series are well known and could be considered classics for their own reasons. Both series feature high school detectives too.
The main characters have super intelligent for solving crimes
both anime are detective series.. they have many interest part and some similiar story cases.. both main character are also teenager detective.. and there are many similiar thing on these anime.. during I have watching many anime.. these are the best anime of detective series.. for you guys who like detective series.. I really recommend you to watch them.. ^^
Both are about detectives solving all kinds of cases.
They're basically both detective shows. Also, the protagonists are both teenager...well, Shinichi and Conan are the same person so Conan really is a teenager. Both has a touch of comedy and dark cases. I can't really say which is better, because in my opinion both are pretty good.
Same mystery genre. However, mysteries are solved by a team of gifted middle schoolers. Also, the cases here are much more realistic than Detective Conan.
Both shows are about solving cases and having an organization as antagonists
Detective Conan and Tantei Gakuen Q are very similar. They are both mystery, and focus on a very smart, young detective who solve cases. They both have someone who is very good at fighting. Also they both have "master of disguises". They both have organizations looking for them. While Conan is solving cases to find information about the Black Organization, Tantei Gakuen Q are working to ambush Pluto!
"Why?" You ask? Detective School Q really have a strong mystery included, same thing like in Detective Conan. I have both Anime and Manga series. It's very great to watch. And I recommend it.
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.
We have here a modern high school detective series that is well know and then a historical high school detective series where the detective is also a female.
Both are about solving mysteries and have similar elements.
It has a lot of mystery within this show. Also, you could compare Victorique to Conan because they are brilliant when it comes to solving mysteries. You could also compare Grevil to Richard. They both steal credit from the actual person who solves the mystery. The overall feel of the mysteries and how complex they are should get anyone to like either of these animes.
An alternative detective story with more emphasis on presentation (graphics for example) and character development.
Both include mystery and romance ;)
Both series are about mysteries/cases which are ultimately solved by the protagonist, who are both highly intelligent people who possess a keen eye for details. Most cases in Detective Conan can be solved pretty effortlessly, while in Gosick they are more difficult causing you to think more. However, no matter the level of difficulty of the cases, they're always pulled off in a unique & clever way so that even if you know who the culprit is you are still baffled as too how they managed to pull it all off in the 1st place. Also in both series, although the protagonists solve the cases all the credit goes to someone who couldn't solve a case for their life. Both series are really amazing in their own ways, so I recommend you check them both out.
Both tells about mysteries/cases and romance. Cases are solved by the protagonist, who are both has high intelligence. Many cases in Detective Conan can be solved easily, but in GOSICK, they are more difficult, so you must think more. Both series are really amazing.
But, I like GOSICK more.
both anime talks about young people who trying to solve mystery and cases .
Both include mysteries that are fun and interesting!!!
Both about detectives. They have a similar plot, too..
Both the animes is detective novels, and about young boys that are detectives.
They're both mystery, or in their case, homicidal solvers. If you love the thrill of finding out a way to bring Kudo back to his normal self in Detective Conan, then you'll definately like the thrill of finding out who the blade children are in Spiral.
1. Both shows have unkown organizations.
2. Both are the mystery genera.
3. Both deal with high school detectives.
4. Both shows have very good characrters, at least by my opinion.
detectives-police solving cases
They both are about detectives, mysterioyse illnesses, secreat orginaztion and ways to kill people.
Both Spiral and Detective Conan deal with the main character using reasoning skills to solve mysteries. There is also an 'evil group' in both animes. However, Detective Conan is still ongoing and Spiral is shorter by comparison.
In both cases the main character becomes a child after get involved with a criminal act. Then, he has to discover the reason behind with help of their "new" friends, hiding the true of himself and what he really knows.
Lots of ERASEDs "main features" are very similar to Detective Conans.
The story in both of the series are very similar but just presented in different ways. If you like one of these two series, I recomend you to watch the other aswell!
This is about two man becoming childs ,trying to prevent crimes in Detective Conan is the Black Organization ,in Boku dake ga inai machi is the abducter
The main character becomes a child but his mind is still that of a young adult. In this scenario, the main character has to solve mysteries.
There is a few things that are surprisingly alike in these two anime.
1.) Conan and Satoru both are 'stuck' in a younger body, and it can be assumed Satoru will eventually have to deal with the same problems getting adults to listen to him when he needs something done, or needs to look into something.
2.) Conan and Satoru are both attempting to puzzle out their situations. Conan being a detective, and Satoru needing to puzzle out, like a detective, what happened to his mother and the people around him and find out who did these horrible things.
A high school detective everyone believes is an elementary school student and a high school detective who doesn't believe in his own self.
They both have the same storyline : SOLVING A MYSTERY. Both have a main character who will solve crimes/mysteries. The difference is that Detective Conan has a more complicated and more bloody crimes/mysteries than Hyouka. Hyouka is much simpler compared to Detective Conan.
Both anime have this Detective aura. They both solve mysteries and makes the brains of its viewers working and thinking of who may be the culprit, or what did just happened.
The similarity between them are both of them are all about solving mystery.
And both of the male protagonist have an incredible ability to solve the problem.
Both worth to watch it!
Episodic detective themes with romance, also good with newcomer to anime. Conan has some thriller and suspense, while Hyouka has more chemistry in its romance (that actually goes nowhere).
