Detective Conan’s best cases

So just recently the previous post to this hit 150 views and I thought to myself what made it so popular?

So today I give you some of the best cases of Detective Conan.

Episode 521-523 Murderer!, Shinichi Kudo

Heiji takes Kazuha, Kogoro, Ran, and Conan to East Okuho after receiving a letter from Makoto Okuda addressed to Shinichi.

The letter tells Shinichi to meet with him so he could justify Shinichi’s deduction mistake from his past investigation. Upon arrival, the group discovers that Makoto has been missing for over a year and that everyone hates Shinichi because of this said mistake.

Conan recovering from a nasty cold separates from the group and heads to the meeting place disclosed in the letter and is eventually trapped inside a shed by an unknown culprit. Conan realizes he took the antidote to the APTX 4869 instead of his cold medication and flees through a window, falling into the river before reverting to Shinichi.

When Conan/Shinichi is found, he apparently has lost his memories. The villagers assume Shinichi was cursed by the Shiragami, a forest god, resulting in his amnesia. Heiji finds out from Haibara that is Shinichi retained his amnesia after revering back to Conan in 24 hours, his identity would be revealed.

Heiji discovers that Shinichi was summoned to investigate the mayor’s and his wife’s murders a year ago, which were determined to be a forced double suicide . Misato Kawauchi, a journalist, threatens to expose Shinichi’s secret unless he confesses to faking his amnesia. Kawauchi is discovered with a stab wound the next day, with Shinichi standing behind her holding a knife.

Is Shinichi the Murderer?

Episode 616-621 Holmes’ Revelation

Kogoro, Ran, and Conan come across a cat belonging to a wealthy British woman who agrees to pay for their trip to London so Kogoro can tell her friends about his detective adventures. Haibara gives Conan two antidotes to the APTX 4869 for the trip and the return trip to get past airport screening.

A young boy named Apollo Glass approaches the Sherlock Holmes museum and demands to see Holmes’ Apprentice in order to decipher a code that will prevent a murder. Conan proposes that he solve the puzzle by impersonating Holmes’ Apprentice. Apollo reveals that a mysterious man gave him a note with seven coded riddles and a warning that if they are not solved, someone in London will die. They hear from the cops that a large number of children have received the same code, which Conan interprets as a large number of people would perish. While attempting to decipher the riddles, Conan and Agasa isolate themselves from the rest of the party.

Can Conan, Agasa and the rest of the party solve the puzzles before it is too late?

Episode 669-670 The Dark Tower’s Hidden Treasure

The Detective Boys meet Nanami Kyoudou, whose grandfather, Seitarou Kyoudou is the one who built “The Black Tower”, rumored to have no entrance and treasure hidden within. Later, they visit her house, where Nanami Kyoudou’s mother, Momoe Kyoudou has apparently been pushed off of the Black Tower trying to find the treasure within it.

The Detective Boys explore the building, which is packed with various illusions, even more determined to find an entrance. Ayumi and Haibara need to use the toilet. However, after Haibara instructs Ayumi to proceed, she falls through a secret passageway concealed behind a bathroom mirror. Ayumi immediately informs the boys of Haibara’s disappearance, and they begin an investigation of the restroom; as a result, Conan notices wind coming from the mirror, but is unable to enter the passageway behind it.

Conan is alerted by Mitsuhiko that there is a storeroom next door, and the Detective Boys rush next door to check the storeroom, convinced that there is another entrance. They find two mirrors there: one large one attached to the wall (though it appears to be leaning against it) and the other smaller one on a desk. Ayumi discovers that the smaller mirror is covered in the same strong perfume Momoe Kyoudou is wearing, inadvertently flips the mirror, and the large mirror Conan was investigating slides down to reveal a masking tape-covered entrance.

Can the Detective boys find Haibara, solve the mystery of the tower and how Momoe died from falling from a tower that has no entrance?

Episode 701-704 The Jet-Black Mystery Train

After Haibara’s identity is slowly found out by the black organization (Vermouth who already knows and her new partner Bourbon) the detective boys and party head the jet-black mystery train experience.

The Detective Boys discover that the train normally only runs once a year, but that this year will be different because Jirokichi Suzuki wants to run it a month later in an effort to lure Kaitou Kid out once more. Sonoko also intends to leave her love letter for Kid in the train car, where he will be able to read it. Masumi Sera appears out of nowhere and expresses her interest in the deduction quiz that will take place on the train.

The mystery game begins and the detective boys are on the case while Haibara is trying to keep herself hidden from prying eyes,

When Scar Akai leaves one of the rooms, Haibara, who is slightly behind Conan’s party, follows them half-hardheartedly. Scar Akai, however, who is dressed in a formal outfit, ignores her and continues walking in the opposite direction. Haibara manages to catch a glimpse of him.

Noticing something is wrong with the mystery game that is supposed to be some harmless fun ends up going horribly wrong as a murder takes place.

Can the murder be solved and can Haibara save herself from impending doom as the black organization close in

Episode 927-928 The Scarlet School Trip

Shinichi’s school trip to Kyoto approaches and he finally convinces Haibara to give him the antidote so he can go but she gives him a condition, he has to wait 8 hours after the back shrinking before taking another one, Enlisting Hattori with his help, Shinichi is able to go on his class trip.

Shinichi and Ran secretly hope that Ran will give an answer to Shinichi’s love declaration back in London.

Shinichi meets Keiko, an actress and an old friend of his mother’s who stays in the same hotel as Shinichi and his class, along with some university friends with whom she filmed a blockbuster centred on a tengu and other monsters. She requests Shinichi’s assistance in deciphering a cryptic code written and sent by their late friend Michio Dekuri, who committed suicide a long time ago.
Nishiki, the film’s screenwriter, obtained the code along with red aralia leaves, which are native to Kyoto.

Not even having time to solve the clue Shinichi gets a text from Keiko, telling him to come to them straight away, after arriving with Sera they find Nishiki dead in his hotel room and that blood is splattered over the ceiling, along with footprints, as Shinichi becomes close to becoming Conan again he switches places with Hattori and goes to sleep leaving Masumi to help the police.

How do these cases relate to the Tengu film, Will ran confess to Shinichi, and what awaits the rest of the school trip?

Anime Discussion: Celebrating Detective conan’s 1000 episode

January 8th 1996, Detective Conan (cased closed) was released on screen, this anime has celebrated its 25th year just this year! And as of today It has reached its 1000th episode and as an anime community and it has to a very big achievement.

This April detective conan will release its 24th film that I’m so excited to see once it has its subtitles and is released.

Unfortunately with so many episodes, I have probably only watched 20% of this series but what I have watched is all 23 movies already released, and I think that is a real achievement for me πŸ˜‰

If anyone isn’t aware of this show ill give you a little synopsis

Shinichi Kudo (in english he was named Jimmy kudo) is a highschool detective in Tokyo, Japan and when on an non official date with his childhood sweetheart when he sees a deal go down between men in black and goes to investigate. He doesn’t see one of the men’s partner come up behind him and knock him out, to keep him from talking he is forced to take a drug to kill him, instead of killing him it shrinks him back into a little boy.

To keep his identity a secret, he adopts the name Conan Edagawa in relation to his love of sherlock holmes and goes to live with his Childhood sweetheart Mori, Ran (Rachel Moore) and her father, whom is a private detective Mori, Kogoro (Richard Moore).

To find the men in black he basically makes Mori, Kogoro a famous detective and in just a short time makes him The great detective even though he’s a lazy drunk.

Since this isn’t a review of this fantastic anime, I won’t give any more details if you want to go and check it out.


This anime has some very interesting characters such as The detective boys Ayumi (amy), Genta (George), Mitsuhiko (mitch) and later on around 130 episodes Ai joins the gang, and she isn’t all that she seems to be, along with Shinichi’s next door neighbour Professor Agasa.

Next we have the other highschool detective but from Osaka Hattori Heji and his childhood sweetheart Kazuha Tomya and both of their fathers are high ranking police offers in Osaka.

We have the many detectives Kogoro, Ran and Conan meet on their many adventures, my favourites have to be Fumimaro Ayanokoji from the Kyoto police department and Sango Yokomizo from the Shizuoka Police District even though Inspector Yokomizo relies too much on Mori’s reasoning and doesn’t really think for himself as for our main Inspector from the Tokyo department Inspector Megure who used to work with Kogoro Mori gets annoyed when he’s there at the scene and basically solves it for them (he basically calls Mori, Kogoro a Shinigami which translates to a bringer of death).

And with this anime being located in Japan because of the nature of the story we have many agencies (FBI, National Police Agency, CIA and MI6) apart from the storyline and produced some fantastic characters such as Shuichi Akai, Jodie Sterling and Rei Fruya.

But even if we have so many beloved characters there is the organisation who tried to Kill Shinichi who take on the names of alcohol to keep their identities a secret the main ones being Gin and Vodka and a little while later we meet Vermouth (and she’s her own blog just on her own haha)

We even gone through half of the fantastic characters in this show including Kaito Kid a famous thief who even has his own show

There are many different cases Detective conan has gone over the years such as

  • The impossible cases
  • Kidnapping cases
  • Blackmailing cases
  • Locked room murders cases
  • Poisoned people cases
  • Attempted murder cases
  • Kaito Kid cases
  • Dying messages cases

and many, many more

If I was given the choice of my favourite cases? Well they’d have to be…

  • Episode 68-70, The Night Baron case
  • Episode 558-561, The Mansion of Death and the Red Wall
  • Episode Episode 779-783, The Scarlet Return

I already have my favourite 5 films here

My 5 Favourite Detective Conan Movies

When an anime goes as long such as this you wonder if it’s actually wondered if it’s worth it to watch it?

I have only watched 20% of the show already, I feel like I’ve accomplished in understanding this anime and the reasons behind the artist’s idea and how much love he’s put into the characters and the story.

At 1000 episodes you wonder if there is anything else left for this show to give?

We’ll I’m not sure, but I am so excited to find out at the moment the manga is at 1047 chapters so were close to the manga, and we wonder what happens if we catch up before more chapters can be released?
