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.

Back to the main story please... It's become a boring manga... Not to mention that the case has became a piece of cake... I can guess who's the bad guy from the moment they find the dead body... Or at least 4 pages after that...

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.

Honestly I have been following Conan for the longest time, I've collected all of it (including the movie-turned books, and enjoyed it... back when I was 12.

The stories now seem very incompetent, many cases were solved merely by the criminals pleading guilty from the smallest most insignificant clues... that will not stand up to any form of judicial trial (assuming there is at least a half-wit lawyer)

The quality of the cases have gone down significantly since the 40ish volumes, perhaps the author is running out of good ideas... now it's simply milking the fanbase of its worth.

BTW, what the hell is up with the inconceivably complex dying messages in recent cases? Doesn't anyone find it strange how a dying person can within seconds think of a crazy long and complicated "riddle" to point to the killer? ... It's not like they'd use that consciousness and strength to try to live or anything...

This series is quite a masterpiece, the only really bad thing about it is that the story do progress but not by a lot, it's almost like inspector gadget that you'll never find out about the bad guys behind it all and their evil plan.

Though the new characters and even just the slight hints make the whole story refreshing after a while, it goes back to normal unrelated cases, but it's interesting the artist keep bringing us new ideas and creating new short cases, so it's quite entertaining, but you might get bored of it after a while if you're looking to know more about the main story, since it's quite repetitive and long, which happened to me quite often when I catch up to the series, I stop for a few months then I go back looking for more after the series pile up again, but still I recommend this series if you like a light hearted detective story, the characters and story are entertaining and cute at times, not to mention massive amount of characters.

this manga is great!! i will agree that the plot is moving slow, and i really wanna know the ending now. it seems that time doesn't go very fast in the manga, like one year hasn't even passed yet?? the movies are better. hehe. there was one arc with the bomber case, conan and takagi trap in lift. that was cool, coz at the end sato nearly kissed takagi!! haha. i love chapters with the 2 of them. =D

This manga is my favorite. Although some would say that the story is pretty slow. Well, this manga is in mystery genre. I mean, these cases actually add spice to this series. I mean, the fact that you would read this means you should expect for cases to be solved. Anyway, this series is one of the best!!

This is the best detectice manga I've ever read. No wonder its been running for 11+ years. I love all the characters in this manga. It gives my brain an exercise every time I watch/read it. I saw this before, but because the art didn't appeal to me, I left it, but it some how found it way back to me again, and now I'm hooked. It's soo good, that even an art picky person like myself love it.

Art is great, characters are great and funny, the cases are interesting, so the only thing missing is the story not evolving.
Other for that it has all qualities of a Manga deserving to be at the top.

I find Meitantei Konan! to be excellent. The plotline is slowly progressive, which makes it lesser good, though I figure the manga to own.

Aoyama is teh ownage.
