I would've given it 5 if they did...
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.
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!
