    Since I didn't see one lying around in the manga section I added one

    The manga's been one harsh and long journey but I think we're gearing up towards the end

    chapter 700


    1) Ran suspect Conan's true identify

    2) The debut of Bourbon is coming

    3) The true identify of Okiya revealed

    4) Akai Shuichi appears again, whether it is real or fake one back to File 677 to File 679

    5) The story will be identical to Movie 13 Raven's Chaser, the massacre from Black Organization to Conan's people around him will begin

    Pretty long shounen manga, has the quality been consistent throughout the years? Or more of a drag?

    More of a drag, I would say. Too many stupid cases... I only wanna see Black Organization, and there's not enough of that. No one wants to see the Detective Boys doing stuff... They're annoying. The cases with Heji or Katou Kid are pretty good, though.

    That's exactly why people keep reading it regardless of the lack of BO stories buddy. :zaru

    Also Stupid cases? What about the case when Shinichi returns to his normal body once or the case when Ran/Rachel's dad solves a case all by himself. :C Especially, the one case involving the song moonlight Sonata. :C

    Okay, you're right. Those were pretty good. But you have to admit, that every case involving the Detective Boys, kinda sucks. They're annoying as hell. The BO should kill them.

    BTW: Who voted for Shinichi's Dad or Doctor Agasa as the Boss? :laugh

    I hate Ayumi and Genta :C

    Tho I guess they're there to balance the age difference between audiences that watches/read the series. Either way I hate them. Especially, that filler in the anime with them being stuck in the mall. God that was gay. :pek

    I hope so too :pek

    A question about Detective Conan: Is the story actualy moving somewhere ?

    I used to watch the anime alot, but even then the low amount of main plot related episode irked me , but from what I gather, this Gosho bloke does it in the manga to . Of course that was a bit ago, so I would wanna ask if there were any progressions, I don't mind being spoilered if ya spoiler tag it to avoid others screaming at you .

    Yeah, the manga's pretty much the same. The actual plot only ever moves like every 25-50 chapters nowadays. If you don't really want to read the filler chapters though, and want to just read the actual plot chapters, then you can just follow this guide, using the key at the top:

    It's not quite up to date, but it should help at least.

    I would like to know why Conan looked so shocked at the end of 699 when Ayumi mentioned she saw Akai.
    Is it because Conan knew he was "dead" or did Akai just pretend to be killed and is now acting different from what he and Conan planned...?


    There are some volumes which are not that worth reading when you?re only interested in how the main plot is progressing, but I wouldn?t recommend to just skip them, because there may be "climaxes" (like volume 42, for example) but I wouldn?t miss the less exciting cases, since even in them sometimes something important is mentioned.
    Usually, a case includes 3 files: "Series Part One", "Series Part Two" and "Series Resolution". These cases are mostly simple case occurs-murderer is searched-case closed- stories, but, as I said, I think you should still read them. Any case with less than 3 parts, you can easily skip without missing anything, while you really have to read a case with more than 3 chapters.

    I really have no clue. Shinichi wasn't ever told about Akai being believed to be dead. He could have been told off screen, but Jodie and co didn't really want to talk about it. The only thing I can figure, is that sometime after his apparent death Akai somehow explained to Conan that he tricked the Black Organization into thinking he's dead and is taking up a disguise as a result (as Okiya) through some sort of code or message (or otherwise Shinichi simply picked up on some hints that gave it away). If that's the case, then Shinichi could simply be shocked as to why Akai would have abandoned his disguise at the bank, and be considering the bank-Akai to be a fake.

    Beyond it being something like that, I have no idea why Conan would be shocked by Akai having been there, unless it's just something like him managing to figure out by some hints from Jodie's and the FBI's behavior that Akai apparently died, and being shocked at news that Akai appears to be alive, particularly a place where Jodie was present (and I believe that Haibara was also there, so he may be having thoughts about the "Akai" Ayumi saw bieng Vermouth or one of the other Black Org members closing in on her).

    Sonoko. She's just obfuscating stupidity! I mean, we've seen several times that when she actually puts her mind to it, she's actually smart.
    Of course, she's too young to be the original leader... but she isn't the original one. She killed him and took his place, using her disguising skills(learned from Kaitou Kid offscreen).

    This is a joke, for all those who do not get that...

    Anyway, how many episodes are there and did they try to animate the whole series or did they have an filler ending like FMA?

    For anyone interested in german censorship and edit stupidity (mandatory shortening of every episode individualy instead of just having a shorter opening and doing it once- this decision stil baffles, it defies all logic and the very basics of reality itself . Like Orqwith, except that it sucks beyond suck (anyone who pinpoints the two comics tose references came out of shall be repped for being a good boy :awesome)) on Conan, as well as On Piec and the like and can speak german, go to animedigital.de by the way .

    Oh, on the subject of the Detective Boys : kinda meh, all episodes seem the same . Well, one had bears , but it also had stupid emotional stuff, so .....but the old hunter guy I kinda liked . Over all, though, these are less enjoyable then the others .

    As for the endless array of cases, while it may disturb me a bit that the actual plot seems dead and burried at times ,watching the show was realy pleasant, like watching an anime version of a show like "It's murder she wrote" or "Columbo " . Okay, a few things I found to be kinda stupid, but overall certainly entertaining enough and providing something to look forward to, while not being to conected .

    But letting Sonoko solve cases and no one being even slightly confused about it , that was real stupid .

    To Gosho-sama he wants to make a series as long as Sherlock Holmes series is or surpass him since that's the whole premise of Detective Conan.

    Btw any of you guys think Eisuke is apart of the Black Organization the way he suspected Kogoro of not being responsible for solving all his cases while everyone else was too dumb to take notice of it is a bit on the o_O side. Also when he was looking for Rena you can't help but think it's also on the Organization's behalf as well. Also when he found out Conan's true identity it's like tat the BO sent Bourbon to spy on him.

    Not really... Just can't see it: It's just not his character to me. Eisuke's dad was a CIA agent: that's where he gets it from. Plus, if he was a member of the Black Organization, he would have known about Rena and her being Kir and such, and wouldn't have had to look for her (beyond looking for the hospital she was in, I mean: He would have known who she was, and been aware of who and where she was up to that point, which it seems he didn't). Plus, there's no way the Black Org would keep someone as clumsy as him around.

    Basically, I suppose Eisuke is no more likely to be a member of the Black Organization than a person like Hattori is to me.

    1. Find out if Akai is really alive and kill him
    2. Learn of the other threat to their organization eliminate him as well.

    Oh come on, Gosho. You can't be serious. BO stuff already over?! Screw that! :notrust

    Anyways... I've been watching the anime lately. I'm at episode 208 now... Still a long way too go. But I like it so far. You only get the good stuff like Heji, Kaito or BO at every 30-50 episodes, but it's still good. Anime-Original cases are not that bad either. Can't wait for Movie 13. Looks pretty good.

    Considering they had went on summer and winter holidays barely countable times (let´s disregard the fact that it had been Christmas once, Valentines Day twice and Shinichi got seventeen somewhere between volume 1 and volume 20), I have no idea. But I think it´s supposed to be less than a year, since Ran... well, hasn´t graduated yet and I thought that should/would be mentioned when she does.

    Ah, the series Detective Conan. It really brings me back, enter years of nostalgia. I recall watching the anime quite a while back, if I'm not mistaken it aired via Adult Swim. I would always stay up and watch it and I remember the cases being exciting as well as intuitive. Though at times the lack of main plot had become rather tedious, it was still interesting to watch nonetheless.

    I want to get into the manga but seven hundred plus chapters does feel a bit excessive for a series such as this. I'm merely only really interested in happenings dealing with The Black Organization, Kudo X Ran romance progression, and Kudo solving his growth abnormality. This of course isn't to say I just want to skip around manga canon in an attempt to only read main plot material. I say if your going to read something, you should make an effort to read it in it's entirety

    I think within the week I'll make an effort to start reading the manga from the beginning. Hopefully the scanlation quality of the earlier chapters of the series are decent enough to read though. I'm curious is the series near it's end manga wise or should we expect over one thousand chapters? I hear the anime is ongoing, though Ive yet to see a site with new episodes released. If anyone has a site to download Detective Conan episodes that would be great as well.
