Editorial Reviews

Case Closed is the final verdict for mystery fans who enjoy wrapping their minds around a good, old-fashioned whodunit. The criminal mind is a twisted place, and Jimmy Kudo knows the shady corridors of humanity better than any detective in the game. There ain't a bad guy in town who can outsmart him, so they try to put the super sleuth down for a dirt nap. But instead of ending up in a shallow grave, Jimmy wakes up to find himself turned back into a kid. Utilizing his unlikely new persona and the latest in crime-fighting gadgetry, he tracks down his assailants as boy detective Conan Edogawa.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU FUNIMATION April 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This hidden little GEM originally aired on the Cartoon Network at the wee hours after midnight. I don't think there is any graphic content (Blood and gore) in the show that required its airtime to be after midnight, but this is the US after all and most Japanese anime shows get censored one way or another if its airing on primetime TV. Needless to say, this show ended up getting canceled way too early and that shouldn't have been the case.

I was immediately hooked on the show from the very first episode that I saw. I didn't watch this from episode number one, but was intrigued nonetheless by the plot and murder mystery involved. However, I could never remember the exact show time and at that point in my life, I was too busy with work to have any free time to watch shows that I really liked. Case Closed is probably one of the greatest anime series to grace TV in my opinion. It ranks up there with Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z, but it's also in a class all its own since the genre is completely different.

The show starts off with teen detective sensation `Jimmy Kudo' solving a case. He is only seventeen years old, but is renowned for his detective skills and case solving expertise and is a bit of a celebrity in Japan where his efforts gets noticed in the local newspaper. Because of his popularity, he ends up getting most of the business and leaves Detective Richard Moore in the dust. Rachel, is Jimmy's best friend and harbors many strong feelings for him. Coincidentally, she is also Detective Moore's daughter. One day on a semi-date, Jimmy runs off to chase after some fishy looking men only to encounter his unfortunate fate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Case Closed Box sets Whats the difference?! April 15, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ok. So case closed!( also called detective conan) The best anime i know of! is being released in box sets but not just 1 but 2 different kind of box sets. Now dont worry, these sets are exactly the same. the boxing is the thing that makes them different. Case Closed Varidian Collection is less money because its packaging is weaker. its made of plastic. Over all i recomend the varidian collection because its cheaper and its THE SAME EXACT THING AS THE COMPLETE SERIES SET. Also you can tell its the varidian collection by locating the varidian sign on the top left of the box packaging.Case Closed: Season One

5.0 out of 5 stars An anime classic July 4, 2008
By R.B
I was extremely happy when Case Closed (detective conan) came to Cartoon Network so many years ago, and so very sad when it was canceled after only 50 or so episodes.

Basically Case Closed (detective conan) is the story of Jimmy (Shinichi) Kudo, a famous high school detective and devout follower of Sherlock Holmes, that is poisoned by the mysterious "Black Organization" and becomes the child detective Conan Edogawa through a side effect of the experemental drug he was poisoned with. After moving in with his childhood friend and love interest (Their first date happens in Episode 1, before Jimmy gets poisoned) Rachel (Mori Ran) and her father Richard Moore (Mori Kogorou), Conan begins to solve cases, using Richard Moore as a puppet (after being knocked out by a tranquilizer dart, and using a voice changer to sound like Richard) as he attempts to find the black organization, and restore his body to normal. All the while, Conan must keep Rachel from learning the truth of his identity, or risk her and her father being eliminated by the black organization.

The formula for Case Closed is basically 30-50 episode spans of Conan solving regular cases, as his relationship with Rachel (His relationship with her, in the form of Jimmy) begins to degrade due to their distance, and his relationship with her as Conan grows, with an episode related to the black organization every now and again. After 500+ episodes of the series in Japan, only about 20-30 have had any relation to the black organization, so when thinking about buying this series, I'd warn you that you may never get to see the end, unless you speak Japanese (I do) and have a friend that owns every single Japanese episode on DVD (which I also do).

5.0 out of 5 stars The best anime to learn Japanese April 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am bilingual and teach some English and Japanese Case closed uses correct Japanese grammar and words compared with other Anime and the characters speak very often (other anime use weird Japanese). If you force yourself to stick to this anime learning Japanese every day through this, I am sure it will take less than half a year until you start understanding it. Although, only watching it won't help, so looking up and understanding one sentence a day in the anime or other academical approach is needed, for learning Japanese though Anime!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, the Season Set. July 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting and waiting for this. Now I can get the DVD Season Sets.

Right now I have the Cartoon Network's [adult swim] made for TV recorded on my PC. The [adult swim] episodes run from season 1 to season 3 and season 3 is just a partial set. It's missing episodes: 050 - The Book Without Pages, 051 - Driving a Bomb, 052 - The Last Dive. However, the Video Quality is seriously lacking and I love watching these in the original Japanese voice over. I have the first 80 episodes spanning season 1 to season 5 and filling in after the [adult swim] recordings with DVD copies. Season 5 is only partial, I'm just missing 3 episodes: 081 - Murder and Mahjong, 082 - The Revengeful Robber, 083 - Dead Hobo.

Here's a list of the most complete list available in the English voice over (Season designation may not be exact):

Season 1
001 - The Big Shrink +
002 - The Kidnapped Debutante +
003 - Beware of Idols +
004 - Fish Marks the Spot +
005 - The Time Bomb Express +
006 - Tragic Valentine +
007 - The Case of the Mysterious Gifts +
008 - The Art Museum Murder Case +
009 - Festival Fiasco +
010 - Deadly Game +
011 - Moonlight Sonata Murder Part 1 +
012 - Moonlight Sonata Murder Part 2 +
013 - Kidnapped: Amy +
014 - Mystery Mastermind +
015 - The Shooter +
016 - The Two Faced Brother +
017 - A Loan Repaid +
018 - Case of the Hi-Jacked Department Store +
019 - Wedding Day Blues +

Season 2
020 - Fashion Sense +
021 - The Disappearing Act +
022 - Lights, Camera ... Murder +
023 - Smooth Sailing Part 1 +
024 - Smooth Sailing Part 2 +
025 - Better Off Forgotten +
026 - The Counterfeit Ransom Kidnapping +
027 - Jack Attacks!
