Anime In Depth
This is going to be short since I’ve only seen the first 9 episodes (won the DVDs in a costume contest). ^_^; But after checking a list of anime titles, Detective Conan seems to be the only “D” anime I’ve seen a bit of.
Detective Conan begins with Shinichi, a teenaged detective. While investigating a case at an amusement park, he’s attacked by two gangsters who feed him an experimental poison with the belief that it should kill him. However, the substance doesn’t work as expected and shrinks Shinichi into a little kid instead. Worried that the gangsters would try to kill him again or harm others close to him if they find out he’s alive, Shinichi takes on the alias of Conan to disguise his true identity.
As he gets used to his new body, he continues working on mysteries with the hope that he can track down the men who gave him the poison and find an antidote. In the part of the series that I saw, Conan did succeed in solving several cases but did not have any luck finding the gangsters.
Although I usually like mysteries and there are some clever twists, I have to admit this series didn’t really grab me because it seems mostly episodic and I tend to prefer anime with ongoing plots that play out over the course of the series. ^_^;;;
