Interesting that this actually happened. As long as it's not just the specials over again (or better yet just continue where they left off), I'll definitely check it out to see how good or bad it is.

Too bad there won't be any Conan to make the interactions more amusing.

They're always been either good or bad... I remember when SAO was annoucned some people spectulated taht it would be either one... Well, it was both, sort of.

Uchuu Kyoudai was amazing though.

A-1 tried its best, but the source isn't that good in the first place. If only Log Horizon got A-1, it might have been the next big thing.

Hahah

A-1 has made a lot of gems in Anime, like Space Brothers, Shinsekai Yori, Gin no Saji and many others.

They did. It had 12 episodes. I didn't watch it, so I'm really looking forward to this.

Yeah, they made it but it's too episodic (and irregularly released too..) to be like an actual series.

Did they not already make something like this, like a 3-4 episode special on Conan dedicated only to this??

It was really tiring to watch, so I am not so sure this is gonna get better. And yes, I had to skip it too. I know that Conan, being a long running series, had to slim down on Animation, but DAMN... They looked absolutely juvenile outside of select few arcs.

But this is a studio with some decent animation, so I have no idea how this will be. But boy, I wish another studio would animate Conan season by season with each season having new Black Org revelations instead of the animate all, add some filler shit we have right now.

This is great! I hope it isn't just a remake of the OVA series though

I only watched Kaito in Detective Conan titles, so I don't know much about his own titles, but he seems to me as thief version of Shinichi Kudo - not to mention Kappei Yamaguchi voices them both and they look really similar.

About childhood friend thing, in Detective Conan most of relationships are based on that which is kinda stupid.

Anyway, I'm guessing this new series will most likely be what Lupin was in 70s and 80s.
