Detective Conan

Shinichi Kudou, a great mystery expert at only seventeen, is already well known for having solved several challenging cases. One day, when Shinichi sees two suspicious men and decides to follow them, he inadvertently becomes witness to a disturbing illegal activity. When the men catch Shinichi, they dose him with an experimental drug formulated by their criminal organization and abandon him to die. However, to his own astonishment, Shinichi is still alive and soon wakes up, but now, he has the body of a seven-year-old, perfectly preserving his original intelligence. He hides his real identity from everyone, including his childhood friend Ran Mouri and her father, private detective Kogorou Mouri, and takes on the alias of Conan Edogawa (inspired by the mystery writers Arthur Conan Doyle and Ranpo Edogawa). Animated by TMS and adapted from the manga by Gosho Aoyama, Detective Conan follows Shinichi who, as Conan, starts secretly solving the senior Mouri's cases from behind the scenes with his still exceptional sleuthing skills, while covertly investigating the organization responsible for his current state, hoping to reverse the drug's effects someday.

I've been following DC since 2000. The art is constantly improving compared to 10 years ago. Plus, this series is pretty popular so I need not mention much. All I can say is prepare yourself for a witty battle because "there's only one truth" you (or Conan :)) have to find it.

This anime is just fantastic, but some people might find it repetitive. It's also one of those anime's with 300+ episodes, BUT they are all wonderful! Animation is a bit old and off (Huge ears lol)... but do you.. Want a better love story than twilight? You got it! Want action and tension? YOU GO IT! WANT NEVER ENDING ADVENTURE OF A LITTLE DETECTIVE... YOU #@$!ing GOT IT! Overall it's an enjoyable anime with many well thought out episodes that will keep you guessing who's the real culprit every time! I sure as hell don't guess the right one half the time.. but as all great detective shows, they have the explanation scene :D OH OH OH AND SKIP THE ENDINGS WHERE THEY GIVE YOU A HINT AFTER EACH EPISODE FOR THE NEXT ONE... YOU DON'T NEED HINTS! and I feel like they spoil it for me..
