Synopsis

Kudou Shinichi is a seventeen year-old high school detective whom people call the "Modern Sherlock Holmes." However, one night after a date with his childhood sweetheart, Ran, Shinichi witnessed an illegal trade and, caught off his guard, was knocked unconscious and fed a drug that was supposed to kill him... but he woke up and found himself shrunken to a seven year-old. In order to track down the men who did this to him, Shinichi hid his identity and lived with Ran, whose father happened to be a hopeless detective, and with that came a series of murders and mysteries that he must solve.

Seeing as how few reviews of this – undoubtedly very popular and influential – manga there are, I thought that it deserved more attention and decided to write myself one.
But before proceeding to the main body of the review I must mention that despite my personal tastes and subjectivity – as you can see I gave this manga the highest possible ranking – I understand that not everyone’s tastes coincide with mine, and I’m aware that some people may not like what I happen to like. That’s why in this review I will try to name all the ‘pro’ and ‘contra’ arguments as to if read more

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.

Story;
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
