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.

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!

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.

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.

Er. Original or rehashes? Geez.

@Usagi~Gurl The 'original plots' are mostly rehashes and further developments of previous plots. How many times has the author done the 'almond scent' poison for his chapters? More than enough times to count. Enough times for TVTropes to point out on it being a defining aspect of Detective Conan's overall mysteries.

So really, not that original. Sure, first time around, but then recycled to overuse in the next 700 chapters. What keeps it innovative and alive after so many years are the slight quirks that he does from case to case, and the overwhelmingly loyal fans to Conan and his friends. What really happens underneath all the detective work is surprisingly very little - too many fillers in both anime AND manga to count.

Unrealistically dramatic - it seems as if Conan attracts a lot of murders each time he, Ran and her father goes somewhere. Is it even normal that a seventeen-year-old could possible witness more corpse than someone twice, or triple his age?

To my knowledge, this will probably an on-going manga for as long as I can count, and me being me, I do not like anything long with no character development at all, whatsoever.

And yet I love this manga. Quite possibly THE best manga I've ever read.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll continue reading the manga.

Conan used to be interesting, but it has been running for far too long! I mean, 626 chapters? Come on! I had been reading this series since I was in 3rd or 4th grade, I'm 17 now. The cases aren't believable anymore, and much of them are recycled for the gazillionth time from the older cases (which were awesome, but now they're old). There are just too many fillers now and too little of the main plot. I'd rather have Shinichi killed off already!

I dont like this, when the authors can't seem to end a story! this one as well as inuyasha need to meet a conclusion.

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.
