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.

I absolutely love this series and I’ve kept up with it as it is still releasing new episodes. Sadly, only the first 130 episodes were done by funimation out of what is now 928 episodes and still counting. Episodes 754-now are available on crunchy roll as well as netflix. Wish there was a way to get that middle chunk cause this is a bingeworthy show. There is a lot of filler but I even enjoyed those episodes tho the plot episodes were definitely better.
Hopefully someone new will be able to pick up this awesome series and give it the attention it deserves!
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. To make a long story short, Jimmy gets poisoned with an experimental drug that turns him into a kid and spends the rest of the series in the body of a pint size kid. In order to not get anyone in danger, he helps Detective Moore establish a bigger clientele base in hopes that over time he will eventually catch the men that did this to him. He does this by solving cases for Moore without him knowing. Jimmy gradually drops hints here and there to help Moore catch his culprit.
This is an addictive show and anyone who likes a murder mystery or a thriller will find themselves in love with the show as well. There is a great balance of humor and mystery. It's not an intense drama series, but its very light hearted and serious enough where it needs to be. Pick up this box set and watch all the excitement from the very beginning and follow Jimmy on his many adventures because "Only One Truth Prevails."

An aside to those who hate the Anglicisation of the names and some expressions the English subtitles on this set are a transliteration of the Japanese version not the dub so you can either chill after work enjoying this show in your mother tongue dubbed. Or for the language purist on a Saturday night switch to the Japanese track and turn the subtitles on if you want a more authentic experience. Out of curiosity I actually watched a dubbed episode with the subtitles on just to see how it had been changed. Apart from a change of names and expressions (for instance in one episode where Conan and friends solve clues to find some stolen gold, bank robbers referred to as simply 'robbers' in the Japanese are referred to in the English dub as Italians), reflecting the difference of viewpoint between a largely homogeneous society (Japan) Vs a multicultural society (America) and the attempt made by Funimation to make this show as appeal to as wide as possible an audience in the English speaking world. Despite this it did not change the plot or the story and it was very easy to follow both as they all followed the same premise and plot. This is the same process that has successfully been applied to probably the most successful anime translation in the English speaking world, Pokémon.
Furthermore as a Christian who cannot read Greek or Hebrew this is something I am very used to so doesn't bother me at all. It's like the difference between the King James Bible and the New International Version, both convey the same message however in slightly different ways, but this does nothing to detract from the original meaning.
It is sad that it never got picked up for general English release after season 5 however it all boiled down to economics. At the time this was released in the 90s there was stiff competition with other Japanese fayre most notably Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon which meant this show ended up relegated to graveyard times where only the dedicated fans stuck with it. We see here the unfortunate side effect of capitalism and the free market. If there is no money in something, or they continue to bleed money as CC did, it will get dropped. I am so grateful that Funimation however authorized the release of these sets and would highly recommend any serious fan of anime to give at least season one a try.
