Description
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.

My two cents

I think this manga has gone on long enough, a lot of people do (as I can see by reading the comments) but I do have a theory why the poor author won't be ending this one very soon.

Like most of the manga dominating the scene (Pokemon, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, too many to continue...) this one has been going on for YEARS. 10+ really. They've run for so long that stopping them would be like halting a moving train with your bare hands. It's difficult to end gracefully. (And no matter how much no one wants to admit it and barks about how it should end, ending it badly would only make us bark louder.)

Also, the manga industry -actually, the paper-based book industry as a whole- is going under. Nowadays, the future of manga relies almost solely on the backs of the big-boys (as I have dubbed them). It must be stressful and at times fairly boring to be writing the same story week after week for years on end. A good chunk of their lives has gone into this. Really, how many of us could keep people reading for over 10 years?

(Oh, and congrats to Tite Kubo for finally ending Bleach. Hope you go on to write other series but I really think you need a break >.< Take one.)

Anyway...back to my point (did I even have one besides ranting? >.>) Be kind to Aoyama-sensei. He's been writing this for almost 2 decades and that's worth a lot of credit. It'll end at some point, so we might as well go along for the ride smile

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.

Before fans of this manga counter me I would like to say, "I read it, I liked it but the story's stagnated" 800 Chapters and we are no closer to the end than we were at chapter 100. That's a major turn off. A great story is one which (sadly) comes to an end or at least has an ending. Does Detective Conan have an ending?(NO) Does it appear that there is a possible ending in the future? (NO) Does it appear repetitive? (yes for the past 500 chapters). Is it starting to get lame? (No, it was lame for the past 500 chapters, starting would be an understatement).

Btw, the detective logic in this manga is so horribly flawed. (sigh)

this manga used to be my favorite manga years ago. but now, even I still read it and I think it still a good manga, I cant place it in my top list manga anymore. it just too much, too long for it running. because there's so little progress on him to find out who the hell black organisation. When will this manga end, and conan back to his true form? it has been over 15 years..... and i'm tired to wait.

Ah I remember when I used to love this series in middle school....that was 12 years ago. I remember reading over and over the story in which Conan temporarily changes back to Shinichi, and hoping for when he and Ran can finally be together....now more than a decade has gone by and the plot has still not progressed whatsoever. Moreover, the mysteries have gotten increasingly preposterous. Every solution involves some rube-goldberg type killing or escape mechanism that would never work in real life. I hope the author can give us a decent ending to the series before another decade goes by!

It's a good manga , but the way it goes on and on with no plot development and no new plots , it gets so booooooring and I just had to stop reading.

I love Case Closed (or detective conan, whatever) but at the same time, there are a few problems.
Characters: I like what Gosho Aoyama has set up, they're kind of funny, cute, etc, but in the long run, nothing has really changed over 745 chapters. Shinichi turned into conan, but Conan hasn't really changed at all. Ran and Shinici's relationship hasn't gone anywhere, so it can be a little boring. The only relationships that have changed are Takagi's and Satou's, and they're minor characters. What's with that?
Plot: it's the perfect setup- all you have to do is make a few tweaks and poof! you have a new mystery. Although it's fun to see how the mystery was pieced together,and i think Gosho Aoyama is a bit of a genius, it gets tedious after awhile, reading that chapter after chapter. Also, what i'm really disappointed about are Kid's appearances. They used to be a break from the usual cases, a mystery mixed with action and adventure, but then they dropped off, taking the form of a usual mystery. Why would that happen? I have no idea, but it makes me kind of upset.

So, all in all, i can't help loving it, but it's not thaaaat fabulous when you look at the big picture.

I actually used to be a big fan of this series, but now I can only shake my head in despair. The mysteries were inventive and the plot interesting, but now it's just dragging on and on and ON! I keep skimming the new chapters in search for scraps of the original plot, but it seems this series has become more of a cash cow than anything. The only thing really worth reading now is the interaction between the minor characters, like Satou and Tagaki, Sonoko and Matoko, and so on, but those are also pretty scarce...
