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.

Funny as hell. It has a bit of everything...but it is getting repeditive.(So I gave up and am just watching movies, ovas, and important episodes)

What I was really enjoying was by the same manga author. "Magic Kaito" was a story about Kaito Kid and him stealing things! I want to read more of that, but I can't find it!!!

Never Ending story?

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.

How to sell out - The Manga

I started the anime over a decades ago when i was a still hungry teen. I liked it at first and why not?
The arts was nice (but the newer art style is also very recommendable), the characters were fun and the cases were a who´s who of famous crime novels. That part is still good and a story was still to be found. I later switched to the manga as fillers are just the worst but that was then and the series now has 86 in canon volumes, 40+ out of canon volumes and many other spin-off´s. There are also yearly movies, ova´s, games and... They even met Lupin twice but i checked out years ago and opening up a random release a few rime did not help at all to get me back.
They are still crying over Cherry´s dead sister who is the one dead character, the romances are still a bust mostly and the age regression plot will never be resolved it seems. None age, graduate from school or changed in life in any way so the whole manga has been a filler since volume 20 or so. I wonder if any of the leads can even feel a thing as they live in the House of a Thousand Corpses by now what the death toll is concerned.
The one light to be found is the stellar art! Gosho had to come up with thousands of characters over the 21 years and it is a marvel even if he uses the same body and face types over and over. Especially the 4 (?) versions of Shinichi X Ran he has used in his 4 major works are the very same characters in body and personality but that is hardly the worst problem by now. I also noticed how clean cut everything is all the time as nothing objectionable (none are gay or moraly grey for example) happens past the beading in the first case but let´s stop. I will come back for the last volume only and i wouldn´t be surprised if it resolved nothing past the age thing and if the one dead character showed up again. I also advice too google who the author married (and soon divorced).
Hint: It´s Conan´s voice actress from Two-Mix. Crazy hm? Everything i sad also applies to it´s brother in arm´s Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo which is even sexist on top so deduct one point there.
Read these crime manga instead as Conan is money printing only or stop when you start to get bored:
Billy Bat, Death Note, Master Keaton, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, Monster and Yokokuhan.

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!

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.
