since this is the very first thread here in detective conan i think i should start out with a summary of the story and i hope you guys will forgive me if you are to say that im wasting my breath and time talking about it but like i said in the title its for newbies so i hope you bear with me. (although i highly doubt anyone would be a newbie if you were born before 1996 which was the release of the anime)
Detective conan is an old manga but is still going on up to now... i find it a great read since it leaves you guessing who the criminal is/are... its a story about an high school detective named shinichi kudo who got shrunk by an unknown medicine while snooping around by an unknown organisation... now he only looks like a little kid but actually has a brain of a 17 year old. so now he is trying to find the antidote to cure himself and bring his old body back without anyone noticing.
all in all i like this manga its great fun but you might get tired of the art since the people tend to look like each other more often as you go along the story most likely the criminals will look like people from past cases but still i enjoyed reading it and still reading since its not finish yet after more than 10 years now.
