Anime Review: Case Closed (TV series)

according to wikipedia

Shinichi Kudo is a high school detective who sometimes works with the police to solve cases. During an investigation, he is attacked by members of a crime syndicate known as the Black Organization. They force him to ingest an experimental poison, but instead of killing him, the poison transforms him into a child. Adopting the pseudonym Conan Edogawa and keeping his true identity a secret, Kudo lives with his childhood friend Ran Mouri and her father Koguro, who is a private detective. Throughout the series, he tags along on Koguro’s cases, but when he is able to solve one, he uses a tranquilizer needle to put Koguro to sleep, and impersonates his voice to reveal the solution to the case. He also enrolls in a local elementary school where he makes friends with a group of classmates who form their own Junior Detective club. While he continues to dig deeper into the Black Organization, he frequently interacts with a variety of characters, including his professor friend Dr. Agasa, Ran’s friend Serena, a fellow teenage detective Harley Hartwell, his parents, and many other characters.

I have been a fan of fan of Case Closed ever since I first saw it on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network years ago. Although I would agree with some the premise is a bit silly. But the mysteries are the best, I could give 100s of examples like how someone was murdered as they stood alone on a balcony 10 floors off of the ground and the only who could of done it, says they were in the bathroom. Or in another case how did this one guy hang himself 30 feet off of the ground. When the only other access to the beam the other end of the rope was tied to had no sign of anyone being on it. Also why at the very bottom of that room is a 6 foot round hole.

I have no idea why Case Closed isn’t more popular, maybe it’s because you got to love mysteries to watch this series.

My only complaint about the video below is the dialog has been speeded up.
