TL;DR Some interesting concepts. A refreshing break from Detective Conan

Gosho Aoyama's short stories collection is a collection of, well, short stories. There are seven stories in all, each of various length. Some runs for the full episode length while others run much shorter. Each of the stories are self-contained, although I like the fact that some of the stories are loosely connected in some ways.

The stories are set in the Detective Conan world, but are in no way connected to any of its characters. One story features a tiny-size detective, another story features an old man magically becomes young again. read more

Simply a masterpiece!

Delve into the mind of one the greatest mangaka artists of the late-80's to early-90's era, whilst taking pleasure in his eccentric universe and fantastic storytelling. While this short was released almost 16 years ago--as of writing this review--, the legacy of Aoyama's great works carries on.
His distinctive art-style left many, to this day, pondering whether to count it as a welcomed gift to the animanga world, or as a defiant far cry from the industry-standard of "moe", which have made it susceptible to criticism.

The specials follow 7 episodes, with the 7th being an episode that details the process of making Meitantei Conan. read more

Aoyama Goshou is best-known for ‘Meitantei Conan’, a detective manga series that already spans over 17 years of serialization with more years to come. But his magnum opus didn’t come out of nothing – for years, Aoyama experimented with his drawing style and storytelling techniques in order to create a most successful combination. We can see that in Magic Kaito and Yaiba – but Goshou is also responsible for a set of short stories that he made during his first years as a mangaka. And here we have an adaptation of these short stories – ‘Aoyama Goshou Tanpenshuu’.

As the title suggests, it is a set read more
