Hailed as the savior of the Japanese Police Department, high school detective Shinichi Kudou uses a combination of observational skills, critical thinking, and all-around knowledge to solve cases that leave the police stumped.

One day, while at an outing with childhood friend Ran Mouri, Shinichi bears witness to a suspicious transaction between two men and is caught. As a result, he is forced to ingest a poison that is supposed to kill him, but unexpectedly shrinks his body to the size of a grade-schooler instead. Now believed to be dead, Shinichi takes up the alias of Conan Edogawa (a compound of the names of the famous mystery authors Arthur Conan Doyle and Ranpo Edogawa) in order to hide his identity and begins his new life as a seven-year-old living with Ran and her private detective father.

Meitantei Conan follows Conan as he continues to solve murder cases, all while slowly working toward exposing the men who shrunk him and eventually restoring his body.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Meitantei Conan was awarded the 46th Shogakukan Manga Award for best shounen manga in 2000. It has sold over 150 million copies as of 2015, making it the 5th highest selling manga series of all time.

The series has been published in English as Case Closed by VIZ Media under the Shonen Sunday imprint since September 7, 2004 (the Funimation dub name changes are kept in the publication). It is also published by Shogakukan Asian as Detective Conan, keeping the original Japanese names. Shogakukan Asian has also been publishing Detective Conan Kaito Kid Special Collection, a compilation of cases which feature the character Kaito Kuroba, since July 2017.

The first time I read this series was when I happened to pick up a copy at the library. At first, didn't really think much of it, but eventually it's grown on me.

Story: most of the cases they present are really entertaining, and often suspenseful. I find myself anticipating what will happen and I enjoy the suspense; I think that's what pulls you to the story. However, having read so many chapters now, with almost one case every 2-3 chapters, you start to find some ideas being repetitive. Overall though, it's still good.

Art: not much to say for art. It's read more

Right let start at the beginning, this is my first review "EVER".

Now onto the review,

When I got to this manga I expected there to be some stories that I would not enjoy and some stories that I would enjoy.

This manga's story regarding the BO is brilliant everything surrounding them is well planned and executed however the other stories regarding investigations after a while got so boring that I wanted to quit multiple time over because they were basically the same with different characters which made the reading more of a chore instead of enjoyment.

For me the actual cannon material that I mentioned above "The Black read more

Me having no life I been able to read almost 500 chapters of case closed. I
must say this series about as old as me is a good series. What first grabed my attention in this book was the way the crimes were pulled off and I stayed hooked.

After abot 75 chapters or so I started to feel the series was repetitive with some ideas over used. But once you want to stop reading it, it beings you back in from random cases to plot effecting the characters whitch make me want to keep reading.

POSSABLE SPOILER it seems so far everyone has some read more

this isn't so much a review, as it is a guide to your full enjoyment.
read the first 3 cases, if you liked them, you will love this manga, currently as of writing this, i'm in the 500 range, but i didn't update and when i left off i forgot how far i was, so i'm leaving this at 487.

i am saying this that the first 3 cases are not spoiler and will only talk about the beginnings not the ends, as to not ruin it for you.

there are 3 case types:
first there is the non event, basically they are not investigating anything read more
