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.

I just recently read the entire series in one go. It is an extremely long series but I believe the character personalities make up for it. The plot is amazing the story is sometimes confusing and definitely is a lot of fun and has many twists and turns. The best chapters are the ones with Kaito the Kid and the Black Organization, the only downside to the manga is that the plot develops very slowly and some of the cases begin to get repetitive. Overall though it is still a great series; especially for mystery lovers, but is not for everyone.

I think Conan should have grown up even without an antidote by now...
The single cases are nice (though too overcomplicated to be believable), but the series in whole became boring long ago.
The comedy is way overused, and the mysteries behind the crimes are repetitive.

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.

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...

He should just grow up again

I only saw a few episodes and I thought that they were, to put it mildly, childish. What intrigues me about this series is that during these 800 chapters Conan didn't hit puberty again, I mean a case takes a few days to solve, and there must be some time between the cases, so even though he became a child again he should grow.

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!

Sell out? Excuse you! Is there a lot of filters in this series? Hell yes! Are all of them written and drawn by the author himself? Probably not, since there are a lot of filters. But sell out? First off, what is his relatio ship with the voice actress has anything to do with the continuation of the manga? They are both successful in whatever work that they are in. Ending conan wouldnt be such a big deal for any of them since the author is probably stinky rich and the voice actress is a popular singer and has other voice acting jobs. And on your point about nothing but fillers after volume 20.. Have you actually read the damn manga? There are amazing canon chapters after volumes 20 (and why volume 20, such a random number to pick)! And also with the recent developments that starting to tie up all loose ends, the manga is still going strong for both canon and non-canon chapters. Many fan read conan is bc of all of the random cases (they love the intricate plot line too). I am one of these fans. Doing what the fan love you to do is not selling out. Also if the mangaka wanted more money, he should really start producing more kaito kids, since there r hungry fans waiting for buy volumes and volumes of that series. Anyway, having a lot of GREAT, MIND BLOWING fillers is not selling out, and a lot of time, the fillers contain clues for the main plot that wont be reveal until later..
