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.

Unrealistic but charming

Ok, the story is more than unlikely. But it never wanted to be realistic anyway. The characters are funny and the crimes are for the most interesting and ingenious. The main plot almost never develops, it's more of an episodic manga, but that's fine considering its genre.

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.

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.

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.

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...
