Detective Conan is a manga/anime series about a high school detective who got drugged by a criminal syndicate which shrunk his body into that of a little boy. While trying to unearth the mysterious people behind the organisation, he continues to solve cases in his miniature form.
The series is very popular in Japan but strangely I don’t see many people blogging about it. I have been following the manga since its debut in 1994. It is currently at volume 61 (in Japan) and is still going strong with no end in sight. I haven’t watched the anime (must be over hundreds of episodes by now) or it’s many movies (and probably never will).
The picture above shows my volume 1 bought in 1994 and volume 60 released in Singapore last week.
Btw an interesting thing about the series is that the main character’s real name is Shinichi. The pronunciation sounds a lot like 洗衣机 in Chinese which means washing machine. ^^
