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.

Now, This is a manga that I can specifically recommend to mystery novel fans. For the rest of you who aren't so much into mystery, it's not for you probably. It's long for a REASON; that reason being that people really like it and want to see it continue. Also, Gosho has yet to actually repeat the same trick or technique in any case. They are ALL different. In any case, this is a specific audience range: it is NOT for everybody. However, I would still suggest that you start looking at it. Who knows. You might like it.

I have to say, this is a great mystery manga. I love reading mystery novels and murders cases too. I know some people like the length of it, but i have to say it is mighty long. I wouldn't mind if there some movement in the plot or something, but something happens like only every like 200 chapters! But besides that, if you like mind games, suspense, longevity, mystery, dead people, super genious children, and a little romance on the side, this is the manga for you!

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.

Well, I for one am in no hurry to see it end. =/

I had been reading it ever since I was a child and stopped sometime during my highschool days. Quite a while back, after so many years, I read a few of my older volumes and got hooked again. Back then, I had only read up till book 20 something. But lately, I've finished all of it until the latest chapter - 666! And not once did I find it a "drag".

I think this is a wonderful series which should be savoured. You could always read little by little during your leisure. Personally, I'd say the feeling is very gratifying and relaxing. Despite not being a very huge Shinichi or Ran fan, I can still enjoy the series while anxiously waiting for the random appearences of my favourite character, Hattori Heiji. smile I can't understand why there are so many people so anxious to skip straight to the ending? "Who was the boss?" "Did the couples end up together?" "How did Shinichi get back his body?" I can't help but stay away from forums and discussions because there are too many insensitive people who thoughtlessly give away spoilers. sad

Just my two cents.

The series started out really great and had me reading every case since I was young, following it diligently for more than 8 years already. The plot involving the Black Organization had me hooked for a very long time. But once it passed vol60, it starts to get repetitive. An introduction of a new BO member isn't helping much to move the plot.

Like a user said below, I'm now just downloading each chapter, skimming through and just hoping that the plot will take a notch up instead of just another chapter of crime case. Everything seems to go stagnant after Akai's part.

At first, this manga was really interesting to me. But later, after some many chapters, i gave up on it. I'll keep reading it later, but the thing is that is is 600 chapters long and it is still ongoing and i think i was only in chapter 120?
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the mysteries are pretty much the same with the person that is the closest to the other person usually commited the crime.
i am interested in mysteries but this mystery was just gettting too long.

This serie is great. I liked it at first, and it was one of the first manga books I have read. The plot is good, and it kept me going on reading it, but 10 years after I started reading it and it still hasn't finished, I just stopped.
Its to repetitive and it seems that wherever Conan, Ran or her father goes, its always pops up a new case.
Because it was too boring I started speeding up and skipped most of the parts till I saw episodes with "Black Organization" or something similar.
Hope this manga and anime ends soon ^^,

7 for good plot and good logic. Reason I not give it a 9-10 is because its too repetitive.
