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.

dragged out for too long

it starts real well

the cases are challenging and the art is good
however, too bad this is shounen manga - too few tragic moment, too much fillers and too many repetitive cases.

it's still a good read when you're bored though.

if it was a seinen manga with more tragic love drama and less kiddie stuff it'd be perfect.

its movies are good though smile I especially love the one with all the cards - shooting your lover to save her.

the one took place on the aphrodite ship wasn't too bad either - it was really touching in the later half.

but the author really should have made shinichi being a little kid an arc instead of dragging out this long.

now here's a manga that challenges the intellect. A modern Sherlock Holmes. Don't underestimate the complexity of the plot, the case can be very difficult to solve, even for detective fans.

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.

This is an exellent manga, with great humour, interesting plot and cases, characters and it's really educational so instead of studying, you should read this ;).

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.

I read this series since i was seven, and now i'm twenty and it's still go no where.
too many unrelated case from main story, somehow this manga fell like agatha christie's novel put in one title, with only one main detective.
even it has main story, the author do not dig it deeper, not even given some clue of the main plot.
where is the black suited man confused confused almost a thousand chapter and there is no conclusion in black suited manconfused
altough i like this manga, i'm bored with too many unrelated episodic case, it's just like doraemon in detective style.
it's like hajime no ippo, 1000++ chapter and never fight miyata.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!
