Technically the story plays out in real time, but realistically it is at the whim of the author. Assuming the cases appear in chronological order. You'll notice that none of the characters ever age or even graduate. There are many discrepancies the Eisuke/Kir Arc alone has some serious and problematic time discrepancies. It starts with the Nail and Snake ...

Saying Conan doesn't reveal his identity is wrong, there are 10 people who know about Conan true identity, and Conan told 2 of them. (Link contain spoiler) Conan never told Ran because it's dangerous for her to know the truth. Professor Agasa warn him about it at the first time he know about Conan, Second Chapter - The Shrunken Detective Knowing her ...

Whether or not Detective Conan was catchy enough isn't the cause for the change in name in this particular case... At one point Funimation's "Case Closed" website had a FAQ page with this question asked. An archival copy of this page can be found here. Q: Why did you change the name to Case Closed? A: Due to legal considerations. We see the same vague ...

Of course, Conan's real age is the same as his age before he shrank. He was 16 at the time he shrank. Conan does mention his age in the first volume of the manga in File 2, when he almost accidentally tells Ran that he is 16, instead of 6. Later in the series, Conan's age is 7, as he has experienced a birthday. Conan is also around the same size as other ...

There hasn't been any official announcement related to the end of the manga or the anime, but here's an interview with Aoyama Gosho which took place in 2011. I really didn't expect it to last this long. I thought it might end after the first volume. Also, about the name "Conan," initially the editor-in-chief told me to change it to Detective Doyle because ...

A nice question. I have to get around a few topics to find a logic answer. Let's start with the explanation of the "Liar" statement against Toru Amuro. The life Amuro is living and showing to all people around him is just a lie / fake. He claims to be a detective like Kogoro in the first episode he appears. And after the case is solved, he wants to be his ...

Officially, neither the birthday is revealed, nor has it really played a role in the plot. However, Aoyama said in an interview, that there is an "obstacle" preventing him from revealing Ran's birth date, but since the birthday hasn't passed Ran is 16 right now" The interview, quoted from Detective Conan World's forum: 蘭の誕生日教えて!→...

My first theory is, in order to make sense of the Detective Conan universe, the stories must overlap! So the only thing that's in order is the first episode. From there, we have probably 5 cases going on at a time, and when he solves one he goes on to another. Every day he has a case to solve, whether it's one from weeks before or not. My second theory is ...

To expand my comment, it's because she's a transfer student and always act mature Ayumi tried to call her Ai-cahn several times but too afraid to do so But in the end, she was able to call he Ai-chan, but when the other called her that, she refused Pictures taken from Case Closed Chapter 398 and 400

She may well have noticed the resemblance, but seeing an elementary school student who looks a lot like how a friend of yours used to look in the past, does not immediately lead one to the conclusion that that student is in fact your actual friend! It is never explicitly stated, but in all likelihood she simply noted (subconsciously?) the similarity (if she ...

As of current writing, there's no special episode/manga chapter featuring the crossover of Detective Conan and Kindaichi Case Files. The only real crossover is the Nintendo 3DS game (as you already mentioned), called "Meitantei Conan & Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo: Meguriau Futari no Meitantei" (or "Detective Conan and The Young Kindaichi Files: The ...

I'll be basing my answer off the anime adaption of these chapters, which took place in episode 425. There were three possible victims this time, all of them were candidates for the House of Representatives in Japan. This number is based off the fact that there would be three interviews. The letters "DJ" were overheard as the target and the place they ...

It is because in first episode shown in anime they made certain changes from the manga. The new first episode is going to be fully made according to the manga. For example, in the manga Shinichi was viewing the transaction through a camera, but in the anime Shinichi was watching without using a camera. Also, the original manga creator said he added new ...

That is a two-hour remake of the original 1st episode, in celebration of the anime celebrating 20 years in broadcast. The special retells what happened on the day Shinichi’s was transformed into the body of a child. The special includes new scenes that weren't in the original manga or the first anime episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_g9zHvMXBQ

Haibara is still in the form of a child and is not hidden from society, so people know who she is. If she doesn't go to school, people will question what is going on, and she can probably keep better tabs on Conan and make sure he doesn't accidentally reveal his identity. According to Detective Conan World Wiki, Because she occasionally works overnight ...

according to the detective conan wiki:4 Agasa updated the glasses so they can zoom in on a distant target and enhance visibility, even in the dark. As of the anime episode The Unsmashable Snowman and Volume 54, Conan's glasses can only have some form of magnifying lens. This lens is on the right, according to the manga, while the Criminal Tracking Glasses ...

At this time unless and until canon says otherwise, it is reasonable to assume that Sera's brother is Shikichi Haneda. However, Gosho Aoyama certainly knows how to mislead his readers, so it's definitely not a sure thing as far as I'm concerned. See also Shukichi Haneda

Remember the very first chapters which creates the setting for the story of a primary school detective. Shinichi Kudo was caught by the Black Organization when he was doing some investigation, and he was force-fed the drug, which is supposed to kill him (but he only shrink to the body of a child). Although his small body is inconvenient in everyday life, it ...

There is a reason behind this. Gosho Aoyama stated that there is a reason behind all the names of the, as we call it, Black Organization. He also said, that if we would knew the real name of the Organization, we would know the boss. Now, we just have to wait until Mr. Aoyama reveals the real name. And it better be something better than "Bar", "Club" or "...

Conan never learned about their codenames in the anime due to the plot modification, which makes a big plothole. Detective Conan World's Wiki stated: The first season of Detective Conan rarely featured the Black Organization because the anime writers wanted to downplay their presence. Two of the episodes at least, were altered heavily in light of this: ...

There's no contradiction between the two episodes: in episode 219, Shinichi never saw Kaito Kid (even during the "duel" with the guns, Kid was hidden behind the sheet) and he didn't even hear the name "Kid": he did ask Megure what's the thief's name at the end, but Megure was so focused on the code that Shinichi gave up asking, while still thinking "but then,...

I would say that you have to look only at cases that are canon. And by that I don't mean the ones that are in the manga. I mean canon as in something in the story line moves along and it's not just a 'guess who did it'-case. There are only in about maybe 300 canon eps where the storyline is moved along in 750-ish anime eps. And stuff like 'The Clash of Red ...

There is a website called Animefillerlist. They list all the canon and filler episodes of certain anime.

Furuya Rei is a member of 「黒の組織」(kuro no soshiki = the black organization). I don't know what chapter or episode you are referring to, so I cannot verify the original Japanese for "Japanese secret police" used there, but: Yes, in real life there was a Japanese secret police along the same lines of Nazi Germany's Gestapo and the Soviet Union's KGB. It ...

You are talking about episode 771 of the anime (chapter 892 in the manga) The woman was Elena Miyano, the mother of Shiho Miyano (Ai Haibara) who created the first prototipes of the APTX-4869 for the BO. Acording to DC world wiki: While the true relationship between them has not been revealed yet, We know that they knew each other when Rei was younger. ...

The translation is incorrect but was probably trying to convey a joke on Hondo Eisuke's bad luck in this show since every time I see him, he seems to suffer from some sort of event. Anyway, what he said here was "Bou to tsutate ita boku ga doji de noruma data desukara." which translates to something like "Me standing here and daydreaming being careless and ...

Three is a number that would make the story go more smoothly. If there were only 2 suspects, the evidence would continuously weigh one one another, making the case go for 5 chapters compared to the usual three. If there are four, or more than such, it would be like watching longer replays of the 50 million suspects case, but these are fillers with no ...

A cut rope or branch (or any piece of wood) will start to discolor almost immediately. If you know what a fresh cut and non-recent cut look like it is not difficult to spot anything in between.
