Detective Conan

In celebration of watching over 700 episodes of the anime and the comic being published for over 20 years now (20th anniversary was on February 2nd, 2014) I thought I should write about this show and comic I love so dearly. As there are at the time 18 films, 12 OVAs, specials, a light novel, the spin-off Magic Kaito and several games that could be accounted for except for the anime and original work, this will cover the comic and anime in general.

44233lShinichi Kudou (CV: Kappei Yamaguchi) is a 17-year-old living in Tokyo. His father is the mystery novelist Yuusaku Kudou (CV: Hideyuki Tanaka) and his mother is the retired star actress Yukiko Kudou (CV: Sumi Shimamoto). But Shinichi himself is famous too. He’s the famous high school detective that even the police trusts. After promising his childhood friend Ran Mouri (CV: Wakana Yamazaki) to take her to Tropical Land if she wins a tournament, the two of them end up in a murder case where a person was beheaded during the roller coaster ride they were on. On this ride were two men in black and – after he figured out the case and the perpetrator was taken to the police – Shinichi spots one of them being suspicious. He follows them while telling Ran to wait for him. The boy has stumbled upon a new case. But the other man in black noticed him and knocks him out cold before giving him a poison to kill him.

Left to die on the ground a police finds him  and his taken to the police station where he’s wound from being hit is treated and he realizes he has turned small. He hurries home where he meets his neighbour, professor Hiroshi Agasa (CV: Kenichi Ogata) who – after a bit of deduction from Shinichi – learns about what happens. Professor Agasa manages to get Ran to take in Shinichi – who introduces himself and Conan Edogawa (CV: Minami Takayama) – to live with her and her father, a lousy detective called Kogorou Mouri (CV: Akira Kamiya (episodes 1-548), Rikiya Koyama (episodes 549 forwards) and with the help from the professor, Shinichi (or Conan) tries to find a way to turn back to his actual size.
