Description
Shinichi Kudo is a high-school student who, by using observation and deduction, is good at solving mysteries. While investigating one, he is caught by the criminals that he was watching and forced to take an experimental drug. Leaving him for dead, the criminals disappear. Instead of killing him, however, the drug turns Shinichi into a little kid.
To preserve the illusion of his 'disappearance,' Shinichi adopts a new name based on his favorite author (Arthur Conan Doyle) and becomes Conan Edogawa. Ran, his (actually Shinichi's) childhood friend takes this little boy under her wing and brings him to her home.
Conan now lives at a detective agency run by Ran's father, but his mind is as keen as ever and he continues to solve mysteries... always allowing Ran's father to take all the credit.
As far as everyone's concerned, Conan is just a little kid anyway... even to Ran. This is *extremely* frustrating to Conan since nobody will listen to a 'little boy.' Despite this, Conan has a mission... to find the criminals who did this to him and get the antidote to that drug.

Note: Won the 46th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2001.

I actually used to be a big fan of this series, but now I can only shake my head in despair. The mysteries were inventive and the plot interesting, but now it's just dragging on and on and ON! I keep skimming the new chapters in search for scraps of the original plot, but it seems this series has become more of a cash cow than anything. The only thing really worth reading now is the interaction between the minor characters, like Satou and Tagaki, Sonoko and Matoko, and so on, but those are also pretty scarce...

Okay I will admit that I really loved this series for many, many, years. It showed such potential. I liked how you figured out a lot of the mysteries as the series progressed, and the relationship between Conan/Ai in itself kept me reading this. HOWEVER, considering how long it's been dragging on, I can't give it any more than a 7/10. When he was back on the forty-somethingish volume, I thought he would finish it by volume 50. He's on volume 67 right now, and there's still no end in sight. I mean, there's a limit to how long, unrealistic, and repetitive a manga can be. Sometimes I think that the mangaka is just trying to keep his income flowing from this story's popularity.... wake me up when its finished... sad

I have been a fan of this manga for over 10 years. I stopped buying volumes when I was 15, because they became too expensive. Since then, I haven't even touched any of the books. Now I've decided to pick this series up again, hoping I would be able to find out what happened to Conan and his friends. But this is still ongoing? Seriously? I love this manga, but I really want to see how it ends... Is it never going to happen? I understand this is a very popular manga and they want to get all the cash they can get from it. It's also true that when this has been going on for so long, it can be difficult to end it... But this is just too long.

However, I am amazed how Aoyama has still kept the story interesting. Every new murder case interests me, and while the manga is VERY repetive, it still doesn't feel repetive at all. The characters are interesting, and while this manga is not very realistic (Conan just happens to bump into a murder case every single day of his life in a country with one of the lowest murder rates), it doesn't bother me the least. Don't get me wrong, I still want this to end, but hey, every good thing comes to an end, right? ...Right?

This manga is my favorite. Although some would say that the story is pretty slow. Well, this manga is in mystery genre. I mean, these cases actually add spice to this series. I mean, the fact that you would read this means you should expect for cases to be solved. Anyway, this series is one of the best!!

If you are someone who has read a bit of this series and planning to read it just to pursue the mysterious people in black, then prepare to be disappointed. This is story of Conan (with a bit of Shinichi on it).

First of all, let me start by saying that this series is by no means a bad one. The art starts good, it remain so throughout any development of the author's way of drawing his characters. The characters are well depicted (and cool), though development is slow. The cases are always intriguing (although there are patterns that follows from one case to another), and actually it's fine to have many cases to solve, it's a detective story anyway.

The problem starts here. DC started with clash between the Black Org with the main character (which give birth to Conan character). While it's true that there is development on this plot, but it's going very very slow, so slow that it's unbearable (well I might have been carried away on this but it's the truth). It's like having hundreds cases in between Sherlock's fight against Moriarty.

I give it 8 for it's quality as a detective story, but plot-wise it's not that good.

By far, this is the BEST detective series I've read. The cases are all complex and interesting, surely challenges the minds of both the mangaka and the readers (: Even though it was a bit slow around the 40's, the plot has definitely picked up in the recent chapters ^_^ Never the least, I LOVE THIS MANGA! Great work Aoyama Gosho-san! x3

I started reading this series in 2001. It's been 16 years and there's still no end in sight.
Don't get me wrong, I think Case Closed is great, with one of the most solid, intriguing main plots out there in the detective genre. I don't think anyone can deny that Conan is a superbly smart series with lots of well-thought plot twists and characters.

However, by around volume 50 or so, the random cases (so-called "fillers") really got on my nerves. They dilute the main plot, and some fillers are just ridiculous. You can use simple common sense to figure that certain tricks and gimmicks are downright unperformable. Sad to say, but it is quite clear that Aoyama-sensei must be running out of ideas! And I'm really tired of the continual introductions of unknown, mysterious characters. Yes, I understand that they play a huge role in leading Conan to the Black Organisation, but come on - after like a dozen of them, isn't it time to unfold the Big Boss?

Lately, I don't even bother to read the cases. I just picked up the chapters that have something to do with the Black Organisation. Well, what can I say? I'm one of those fans that have grown frustrated.

All in all, I'd like to say: Read this series if you haven't. After all, it is like the biggest detective manga out there; and as I said above, the main plot surrounding the Black Organisation, the CIA, the FBI, the immortality pills, etc is fantastic. But if you are looking for something that is really focused on mystery and murder tricks, Kindaichi is probably a more fitting choice.

sigh, this manga was good but really where is the progress? i mean, gosho sensei left a little bit hints (mysteries) here and there but there is no progress of the hints. actually i am okay if the manga is kinda like QED, it also didn't have any progress as far as i read and the mangaka don't give the reader any false hopes that there is actually other stories behind the case but this manga just let the readers hanging for so many chapters yet there is nothing new to add the excitement of reading new chapters.

I really love this series. It's got many interesting cases and each have some difference.(It's amazing how God/Fate or Conan or some guy can always get 3 suspects. EVERY SINGLE TIME)
Plus Conan sure ages slow. It's got many interesting characters.
I love the fact that it doesn't end (This surpases even One Piece in terms of length) I hope that it hits 2000+ chapters.
