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.

Preliminary (Unknown/? eps)
First of all, let me say that this type of manga is not for everybody. Obviously, that’s true for all manga, but there are some qualities of Detective Conan that will annoy some people. The main storyline moves very slowly and not much attention is given to character development. However, it is my favorite manga, and it is a great read for anyone who can handle some of the repetitive elements.

Story (10): The story itself is amazing. Like I mentioned before, the main storyline does move kind of slowly, but it has picked up speed a little around volume 73, where more of the ...

Preliminary (1069/? eps)
How do I not like manga and I love anime , Yes, manga is the one that contributed to the birth of this great anime, as it is the pillar of its events and episodes, especially since the studio quotes all manga chapters. Without a doubt, I like very much the style of the writer Gosho Aoyama, as I find it simple and very beautiful drawing style at the same time. I also like the difference in drawing the characters from the rest of the other anime characters. For example, what distinguishes Conan characters from others is their beautiful hairstyles.Like Ran's hairstyle, which I find ...

Take this more as a supplement and a warning of sorts.

This manga offers a lot of shorter cases that are interesting about 50/50 while it started so good but with time it's stuck in a rut.

At the start the story keeps going and the mystery and cases are creative and each volume has an interesting novel or TV series or movie that influenced the author.

Later on the story is going nowhere, the reading becomes a drag and it's either 85% filler or a character has a short flashback or another character is added while nothing moves forward. That's why I stopped buying ...
