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.

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

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.

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.

where the heck is this story going?!

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.

My Super Top Notch Manga EVER~!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

This manga is absolutely my super top notch one since I always crazy about mistery and all detective stuff.
I'd been reading this manga since about 9 years old (i'm 22 now) and never get tired of it. But sadly i couldn't solve the cases myself. Well, I think my logic isn't strong enough >_<
For this 'Masterpiece' rating 10 is still too low, isn't it?!

Aoyama Gosho sensei, Good Job! Banzai! ^o^

This is a nice fun manga that I've really grown to enjoy reading. My only real comment is don't read it all in two weeks, take your time with it. While the stories are all fun, your almost garenteed to get sick of everyone getting murdered left right and center >.>

Amazing. The mystery, the storyline, the characters, the anime, the art... simply amazing.
It's just a... a little bit too long, though. It's still amazing though.
