Description
From Yakuza:

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.

I love it...but...

I love Case Closed (or detective conan, whatever) but at the same time, there are a few problems.
Characters: I like what Gosho Aoyama has set up, they're kind of funny, cute, etc, but in the long run, nothing has really changed over 745 chapters. Shinichi turned into conan, but Conan hasn't really changed at all. Ran and Shinici's relationship hasn't gone anywhere, so it can be a little boring. The only relationships that have changed are Takagi's and Satou's, and they're minor characters. What's with that?
Plot: it's the perfect setup- all you have to do is make a few tweaks and poof! you have a new mystery. Although it's fun to see how the mystery was pieced together,and i think Gosho Aoyama is a bit of a genius, it gets tedious after awhile, reading that chapter after chapter. Also, what i'm really disappointed about are Kid's appearances. They used to be a break from the usual cases, a mystery mixed with action and adventure, but then they dropped off, taking the form of a usual mystery. Why would that happen? I have no idea, but it makes me kind of upset.

So, all in all, i can't help loving it, but it's not thaaaat fabulous when you look at the big picture.

I think it is amazing that Gosho Aoyama is able to come up with soooo many genius plots like these. I find this manga as something that someone could possible use if they wish to kill someone and get away with it. Ha Ha. But seriously, I've been a fan of this series since 2005 and I love it. I tried collecting all the episodes, but I gave up, I own about 400 to 500 episodes. It never ends does it? I think that since so many days have gone by so far, why hasn't anybody aged yet? Ran should be close to graduating, and Shinichi will probably have to repeat a few years for missing so much. When is he ever going to solve the mystery with the Black Organization. I've had enough of the side stories, and I want the climax!! I wonder if it'll EVER end. Another reason I want it to end soon, is because I want AG to start picking up on Magic Kaito again.

I truthfully admire this manga !! Shinichi/Conan is remarquably intelligent..no he's a genius!!and unlike what someone said conan did make some mistakes:ex:in the case with Yukiko and when his father appeared he did miss some point in his deduction that his father cleared up,and in the side story of upcoming movie 14(can't wait to see it),Conan and Heiji thought that the mother abandoned her child yet it was wrong!!XD Moreover,Shinichi's capacities of deduction are better than Heiji's which is revealed at their first encounter,though their pattern of thinking might be alike and they usually discover clues together ,Shinichi is always ahead of him(you might understand what i mean if you're a crazy DC fan like me ,through the episodes)Plus he's handsome and I love his smile (I won't lose to you Ran XD) As for the character they're so cool!!! Kaitou Kid is one of my favourite char !! he's charming and elegant !I also love Ran b'cause she's cute ,strong , kind and so patient(guess why bigrazz ) I love Haibara also!!she's so cool,pretty and mysterious!!!
If you like high quality mystery novels with light romance , DC is a must ead!! Good Job Aoyama sama!!!!!!!!!!!!

Long, Repetitive... But I love it!

At first, I was sceptical. A teenager turned into a little boy and solving murder cases. Really? Knowing little, my thoughts were all about "How the heck could he even get into crime scenes?" and other things along those lines, and it really didn't help that my first encounter with this series was the Anime Dub.

So, one day, bored me decided, "What the heck" and clicked couragously on chapter one.

Wow.

Let me start with what I didn't like before saying what was good.

Firstly: Right from the start it feels like the cases are moving too fast. Shinichi solves the case within a couple hours, some of them less. And after he reveals everything he's figured out he pulls out one peice of evidence, or explains one place that the culprit's figureprints are, and BAM! They confess everything.

Is one figureprint or one peice of evidence really enough for them to be convicted? Well, that's why they confess, right? Because they're sure that they're going to be convicted?

The only explaination is that they break under Koguro's glare-of-doomTM. Though it could be because the burden of killing somebody is too much to bare.

I don't think there are enough crazies. The people who kill without motives. I don't think there are any. There's, like, no real serial killers or anything. There should be more of those.

You also never see Conan/Shinichi make a mistake. You see Heiji fall for tricks and make mistakes, and Heiji is almost a carbon copy of Shinichi's thinking patterns. The two could like, communicate without talking if they tried. And when solving cases together, they sort of do.

Shinichi is only human. he should have made (and announced) a wrong deduction at one point or another.

Long. Many of the mysteries are the same thing over and over. After they discovered their 200th CLOSED-ROOM-MURDER!(c) it should have been less of shock... and when they get cut off from the world and are getting killed off one-by-one Ran and Sonoko should be really calm about it by now. Like: "Oh? Again?"

In the begining there was some plot progress and some diffrent and interesting cases. Then the boring and repetitive cases begin. In these chapters or so there is very little plot progress. Somewhere in there you've got some new characters that will probably be essential to the ending, but just when it seems he's finally caught on the leads on the Black Organisation that have been surounding him for fifty chapters something happens and they all disapear.

After a bit, there was something that looked like plot progress, and there's variety in the later chapters again.

The characters and drawing style:
The characters are great (though Shinichi needs to make more mistakes). The drawings are nice to look at. I've seen worse.

The plot: It's slow moving, but it's there. Relationships between characters seem to be at a standstill, but are very slowly moving forward.

Speaking of time: Why the heck is Conan still in first grade? I know manga world moves slower than real time, but I've seen some dates that indicate Shinichi has been a kid for like, at lease two years. (there was a Valetine's day thing about 100 chapters ago, and next thing I know I'm seeing the date Feb. 3rd across my screen. Ummm...

The mysteries are good. Predictable, some of them are. Some though, the diffrent ones, are something to look forward to, and between all the annoying murders and such, there is usually some kind of interesting thing going on.

I also like how Megure began to notice that dead bodies follows Koguro around, and that he should lock himself in his house (though it's more like they follow Shinichi...) and how people don't just write off his "Sleeping Deduction Shows". It's become his trademark thing, and he has fans that want to see him solving cases, but it's just not writen off.

Character development feels non-existant, but after going back and reading, you can see so plainly how far the characters have gotten from where they began.

All in all though, this a very enjoyable series if you're looking for something diffrent: I highly reccomend it.

it's good, original at the time it was released but the best thing about it is the Main plot, it's simply Awesome! as for the downside, it's very very very...etc SLOW!!!! but i just read somewhere that the Mangaka hinted that it's ending soon X) i really want to see the end....>.>;;; it just got to 60 volumes...What i'm advices to anyone who like this series is to simply read the first 10-15 books and Skip to the last 10-15 books ^^

Its realy depressing that after what? maybe 10 years this manga has not ended.

it was GREAT when it fist started and i LOVED it! but it went on too long, i usualy have no problems with long series but detective conan is just repetitive - they should have finished it ages ago as they seem to reuse the same methods of killing again and again.

Someone above said inuyasha was just as bad as this but it ain't - inuyasha had plot proggresss!

if your looking for a grat open and shut story - don't pick this you'll die before it ends!

Great manga but the quality has went down

I agree with the last post. The manga was great. Back when i was small, i enjoyed it alot. But now it just gets boring. I stopped reading conan 2 years ago because theres no development of the main story. They are just solving random cases with no relation with the story at all. That repetitive is boring.

Not to mention that the case quality has gone down drastically. I remember some cases in the past which actually moved me that i felt sadness and really sorry for the culprit. I think its time the author concentrated on the main story and ended this story before it became totally trash.

I give this series 9 though because it was a great series until volume 40 or so.

I've read all fifty volumes and I must say that I'm REALLY impressed with the series, although I was less than thrilled with the drawing style at first (as I'm more into really realistic drawings), then I really got into it - especially the enigmas at hand. The first volumes often cover closed room mysteries or impossible cases but they soon evolve into cases where you have to discover who's the culprit by dismantling the alibis and whatnot - but in the meantime, you will be sure to be EXTREMELY surprised, especially with the way crimes were committed and the way the crime scene were tampered with to make them appear unsolvable.

Character design is very good and provide excellent settings for drama, slight romance and most of all, comedy. We follow the series through different circumstances - according to who is accompanying Conan, be it Kogoro Mouri, the Detective Kids, Heiji Hattori or with the "anti-Black Organization squad". It is not a series that will stretch eternally. There is a path but the development is quite slow.

But in the meantime, the plot turns will be most likely, if not surely, to REALLY surprise you, as the setting for a hypothetical final confrontation and the solution to Shinichi/Conan's plight draws near.

By then, you'll have learnt a truckload of miscellaneous facts about science, biology, history nature, logic and other fields, some of which give a good insight to our world's secrets and Japan's way of life.

It is a must-read, especially if you're fond of mystery cases and seemingly impossible crimes. God knows I'm going to read it to the end.
