The first movie of the Detective Conan series.

Let me fill you in on the story, Conan (Shinichi) has to find a mad bomber, who's been setting fire to buildings and blowing up other things. Bomb after bomb, Conan finds his way to the criminal, but there's always a parting gift from the villian's.

The story is pretty basic, but it's enjoyable, it's well organized and done pretty simple, yet impressive, the "final touch" was brilliant. Expect some here. It suprised me at least.

The art is very good, it's the same ol' Conan style, yet it's been animated pretty good, hope this will be getting better read more

after done rewatching this movie i just thought "ah why don't i try writing a review about it" and here i am. let's start the review

Story: 6
well the story is nothing unusual for a detective genre. the culprit called the detective and challenged him to found the bomb that he planted and give him some clue to solve it. not the most original thing but enjoyable

Art: 7
the animation are pretty well done. not jaw gaping but fluid enough for eyes and the rest is the usual detective conan art style if you like it then you will like the one here too.

Sound: 6
it reuse the read more

Well, first of all, I gotta tell you, I was a little bit surprised when I realised this movie has only one review. I personally think that this is a must watch movie for all the Detective Conan fans out there.
Anyway, lets begin:

Plot: 8
I really liked the plot. I mean, don't expect something outstanding, but it was honestly good. Shinichi, who is trapped in the body of young Conan, has to deal with someone who planted bombs all over the city. As I said earlier, the plot isn't the most original thing you'll ever see, but it's good.

Art: 10
Let's talk about the art. It's amazing, read more

As anyone who might have watched my anime list should know, I’ve been watching Detective Conan as of late and overall been enjoying myself. Of course, there’s no way in hell I’ll review the whole show until it’s over, as by that point the review would likely be outdated. What I can review, however, are the movies.

Like more than a few long running Shounen, Detective Conan has a series of annual movies that are still ongoing. In most other Shounen series, these movies are a continuity nightmare, not only with their release schedule not matching up with the events that are happening in both the read more

After 1 year of airing on TV, Detective Conan would finally get his chance to shine on the big screen. In 1997, the first ever Detective Conan movie, The Time-Bombed Skyscraper, was released to the public and became every fans' favorite movie. Despite its shortcomings, this movie is still very fun to watch to this day.

Throughout the movie, Conan has to find bombs spread throughout the city before they blow up. Seeing him chase down and deduce the location of these bombs is one of the highlights of this movie. Another thing is how much Ran plays an active role in the finale. In later read more

Story - 9
Excellent pacing with high stakes and lots of content. The case itself has a little bit for the viewers to figure out for themselves, but the action is the real star of the show. Story feels solid from start to finish.

Art - 8
Same style, higher quality and effort.

Sound - 8
Great timing and presence from start to finish.

Character - 8
Not a whole lot of development, but we got to see the characters interact a lot and very satisfyingly too. Also got a good dose of the Ran & Shinichi romance.

Enjoyment - 9
Good, clean fun. Especially for those not really into/familiar the TV series, so read more

I personally thought the movie wasn't THAT great. Perhaps, it's a great movie to pass time if you don't have anything else to watch. I heard that the other "Case Closed" movies were better than this one, so given the benefit of the doubt, I'll just assume this movie wasn't great because it was the first of the series.

I thought the art and sound was good, similar to that of the show. I watched the dubbed version of the show. The characters, especially Detective Richard Moore were hilarious. His sense of humor always made me laugh.

One thing that amused me was how people weren't evacuated read more
