The criminal mind is a twisted one and Jimmy Kudo knows the shady corridors of humanity like no other detective in the business. He's put more scum behind bars than just about anyone on the beat and his skills have earned him plenty of enemies, and he pays the price one dark night. Being poisoned and left for dead.
But rather than meeting his end in a shallow grave, Jimmy gets a new beginning. Awakening to find himself transformed, the evil elixir of his faceless foes has changed him into a small boy- the perfect cover! Utilizing his unlikely new persona and cutting edge technology, Jimmy is hot on the trail of his assailants as Conan Edogawa.
The path to justice will be littered with cruelty and madness, the worst of man on display as this sleuth cuts through the underworld in search of answers, solving one sick crime at a time. Truth is not open to interpretation. There's no room for error when life and limb are on the line.
Case Closed Season 3 set includes episodes 53-79.

In the third season of the popular mystery series Case Closed
(1996), the filmmakers introduce new elements to keep the program from going stale. In the two-part adventure "Footsteps of the Hero," a Sherlock Holmes trivia contest brings Conan into conflict with his old rival, Harley, who realizes only one person possesses such amazing powers of deduction--and that Conan must be Jimmy Kudo. But what will he do with this knowledge? At a video game convention in "Game Gone Bad," Conan finally stumbles onto a clue about the men in black whose poison turned him into a little boy, only to see it destroyed before he can act on it. The writers manage to keep the mysteries intriguing, although some elements inevitably recur (or murderers use an awful lot of monofilament fishing line in Tokyo). But "The Mist Goblin Murder" involves a Tengu
, a mountain goblin in Japanese folklore, while "Gomera" spoofs Godzilla
-style monster movies. The high point of the season is the two-part finale (which aired as a one-hour special in Japan) that introduces Phantom Thief 1412, a.k.a. the Phantom Thief Kid (originally the Kaitou Kid). A brilliant young magician, master of disguise, and cat burglar, the Phantom plays Professor Moriarty to Conan's Sherlock Holmes. Each opponent is forced to admire the other for intelligence, skill, and imagination equal to his own. Voice actor Jerry Jewell obviously has fun playing both characters in this entertaining rivalry, and it's clear Conan and the Phantom will continue to bedevil each other's plans in the seasons to come.
