A Kid's Review on September 24, 2004
Format: Paperback
Of course there is a lot of comedy and a lot of romance and back story but the part that I find really interesting are the cases. This is about 16/17 year old Jimmy Kudo one of the greatest detectives you can think of. You can not beleive the cases he can solve! After witnessing a crime these men in black give him a poison that should kill him but it shrinks his body into that of a 6 year old. Until he can find the men in black that shrunk him, he (taking on the alias of "Conan" since if the men find out his real idenity they will kill him and the ones around him,) solves these ridiculusly hard cases. If Sherlock Holmes was alive he would struggle to solve them! Conan is put under the care of Jimmy's wannabe girlfriend and her 'stupid', 'not perceptive' detective father and Conan/Jimmy solves the cases for him. In the first volume the cases he solves are hard but relativly simple, but later on they have these cases that even if the pulprit walked around with a sign saying he did it, you couldn't sove them. One word, Amazing!

I can see that they changed several of the characters names from Japanese to American and may I ask why?!? Personally, I think the company should've kept with the Japanese names instead.
I would've given it 5 if they did...

My 5/10 mangaupdates review of the whole manga up to 2016: I started the anime in the early 00s when i was still a hungry teen. I liked it at first and why not? The arts was nice (but the newer artstyle is also very recommendable), the characters were fun and the cases were a who's who of famous crime novels. That part is still good and a story was still to be found. I later switched to the manga due to my hatred of filler materiel but times moved on and the series now has 89 in canon volumes, 40+ out of canon volumes and many other spin-offs. There are also yearly movies, OVAs, games and... The cast even unsuccessfully met Lupin twice but i checked out years ago. Opening up a random release now and then didn't help to get me back either. They are still crying over Cherry's dead sister, who is the one dead character Most romances are still a bust and the age regression plot will never be resolved it seems. No one aged, graduated or changed in a meaningful way way so the whole manga has been a filler since the release of volume 20 or so. I wonder if any of the recurring cast members can even feel emotions anymore as they live in the House of a Thousand Corpses in regards to the death toll. The one redeeming feature thus still remains the underappreciated art. Gosho had to come up with thousands of characters over the 22 years. A true marvel but i will admit that he uses the same body frames and face types over and over again. Especially the 4 (?) versions of Shinichi X Ran he has used in his 4 major works are the very same characters in body and personality but that is hardly the worst problem by now. I also noticed how clean cut the overall narrate is.Read more ›

Case Closed

Case Closed, by Gosho Aoyama, is the book in the magna series. The show was great and the book is even better. The book is full of suspense. You can solve the case with Conan Edagawa (main character) and get confused. All while by his side. There is plenty of times where you solved the case until another suspect shows up or a new piece of evidence reveals itself. The book is also filled with action. Conan is always getting attacked when he gets close to cracking a case. This book also has an amazing story line and some of the most amazing plot twist I have ever read.

You will fall in love with Conan as you find out how he solves the most unbelievable cases known to man. These cases range from child's play, to master mind, and finally to unsolvable. Even still Conan some how manages to solve everyone of them no matter how long it takes. Conan is like any other ordinary teenager. He has his share of girl problems, as well as friend

problems. The only difference is that he is incredibly smart for a 9 year old. You will find out why he is so smart when you buy this book. This book is I think incredibly cheap for what for what you get to read. If you are a fan of the show you will definitely be a fan of the book. Must by for any novel lover old and young.

What happens when you mix a pre-school body with a high schooler's mind? A really weird person (really close), nope! A super ace detective who has to hide his talents because he's staying at his best friend from High School's house? Yes.

When High School detective and prodigy, Jimmy Kudo involves himself too far into a mystery of two men wearing black, he ends up being turned into a tiny preschooler with a high schooler's mind. To cover up his flaw and to keep his friends safe, Jimmy must pretend to be the preschooler he turned into and stay at his best friend, Rachel's house under the name "Conan Edogawa".

Throughout the series, the hilarity of Jimmy's failed attempts to conceal his high school self rise as do Rachel's suspicions about Conan's (Jimmy's) similarities to Jimmy. In addition to that problem, Jimmy can't keep his head out of a mystery even as a little kid, bringing him into deeper trouble with Rachel's father, Detective Richard Moore.

The bloody assasinations, stabbings, head chopping, impaling, poisoning, dismemberment, drownings, and more show up to block Jimmy's way to finding the cure that will return him to normal, in the meantime, Conan (Jimmy) has to keep Rachel from worrying about his other self, and keep her from knowing the truth of how he became small.

This is an excellent series for all manga fans or mystery fans, it's funny, suspenseful, (and gory for anyone with action issues. I highly reccomend anyone to read this book and the rest of the series if they want action, jokes, mystery, a little bit of love and wit.

The Best Mystery Manga ever!
