Detective Conan Episode 1
The episode starts in a mansion where a party has been interrupted by a murder: one of the guests, President Yamazaki of Yatsubishi Bank, was found dead with a bullet in his heart. The police, led by Inspector Megure, have been investigating the crime scene, but have no conclusive evidence as to who the killer is. However, Shinichi makes his grand entrance and claims that he has figured out the case.
Ran Mouri meets up with her friend Shinichi Kudo on their way to Teitan High School. After Shinichi explains to Ran why he quit the soccer team and tells her that he wants to become a detective like the fictional Sherlock Holmes, Ran reminds Shinichi of a promise he made with her: if Ran won the regional karate championship, Shinichi would go with her to the amusement park, Tropical Land. Shinichi had forgotten, however, and Ran tries to kick him as punishment.
On December 9, 2016, a 20th anniversary two-hour special complete remake of the first episode aired. It retold the events of the first episode and added in numerous backstory scenes for characters that would appear much later in the anime including Sherry, the FBI and Black Organization, Ran's schoolmates at Teitan high, the Suzuki family, and many others. It also included remakes of important scenes for later episodes
The two-hour special celebrating the anime's 20th anniversary debuted in Japan in December 2016. The story retells what happened on the day Shinichi's teenaged body was transformed into that of a child. The special adds new material that was not in Gosho Aoyama's original manga or "Jet Coaster Satsujin Jiken" (Roller Coaster Murder Incident), the first episode of the television anime. The story begins when Shinichi sets up a date with Ran at the Tropical Land amusement park, and continues with Shinichi's encounter with Gin and the others at the park.
The corresponding manga chapters are listed in parentheses next to the episode numbers if you are interested. The first set is the overall chapter numbers and the second is the chapters as contained within each volume, separated by a bar (). If a manga chapter reference is followed by an asterisk (*), then there has been some story-critical change between the manga and the anime adaptation.
Since Detective Conan has had some direct crossovers with the Magic Kaito manga over the years, yet those parts of the Detective Conan anime never had the Magic Kaito parts that gave them context animated as well, those crossovers have never really had their full and proper effect for anime-only fans. However, now that Magic Kaito has finally received an adequate anime adaptation, I have taken the liberty of working the timings of these all-important crossovers into where they fit in with their Detective Conan episode counterparts, making the crossovers whole once more. The Internet can thank me later. The only issue is that the Magic Kaito episodes are entirely out of order. But, the order really does not matter for that series as it does with Conan, as the series is entirely episodic beyond pretty much the first episode. So, you can ignore that and watch that series in any order you wish.
An episode being on this list does not necessarily mean that I am insisting that you watch it. It is calling the case out as one that someone might not want to miss for some reason or reasons, with those listed. If the reason given does not look like it matters to you, feel free to ignore that episode.
The *Main Plot* label is only there to point out episodes that you definitely should not skip, since listing the spoiler-lite reasons alone may not be enough. Watching only those episodes is missing out on most of the character development, which is what mainly causes you to care about what happens in those episodes in the first place. While I am not necessarily recommending that you watch every case listed, I am suggesting that you find a balance somewhere in the middle that works for you.
13 [INTL 14] (manga 13-16V2F4-7*): Introduces Miyano Akemi. *Main Plot*Note her importance was far more immediately obvious in the manga (although not the full breadth of it by any means). But the anime creators were idiots, in a way they really seemed to enjoy being at this point in the anime, and changed the ending of this episode completely. Therefore, they had to make a special original followup episode later on when they got to adapting the part of the manga where the implications of the true ending started to become extremely important. Fortunately, I think they learned from this incident and stopped doing things quite so dumb from that point on.
We watched the whole of the Detective Conan anime for the first time starting in 2018, so we're relative newcomers to such a long-running series. But we got into it. After we watched all of it up to its current point, we decided to go back and rewatch it from the beginning, and, while rewatching it, we've been taking some notes episode by episode. We wrote these notes primarily for ourselves, but we think they're pretty nice episode reviews, and when we reread them, we'd like to do so in full formatted glory, so we thought they'd be fun to share here on Staircase Spirit.
For the record, we're not as familiar with the manga version, so our notes are going to reflect that. We're going to specifically talk about the experience of watching Detective Conan as an anime, which has both episodes based on manga chapters and episodes invented by the anime team. People refer to the latter as filler, since they can never further the overarching plot, but we wouldn't tell you to skip those. In our opinion, many of the anime-original episodes do serve the purpose of furthering and exploring pre-existing characterization in ways that strengthen the overall story. At the top of each review, we will point out which episodes are based on the manga, and which ones are not.
The very first scene of this show is a murder investigation in progress. The cops are there, questioning a guy in a wheelchair about the man who was murdered at his party, when in the front door walks a teenager wearing a bowtie. It's Shinichi Kudo, high school detective. Although he has nothing to do with what's going on here, and nobody asked him to come, here he is, walking in the front door as if it were a stage. He starts proclaiming all of his brilliant deductions and points at the murderer, who is right there... (Toggle whodunit...) It's the guy in the wheelchair! But how could this guy have done the crime while he's in a wheelchair? The teenage bastard assaults him by hurling a decorative globe, and when the guy hops out of the wheelchair, it is revealed that his broken leg is already long healed, and the cops take him away. It's a good thing that Shinichi was right, or else he would have just smashed this guy's face with a globe. But Shinichi is so certain in his deduction that he doesn't even consider what might happen if he read the situation incorrectly. Inspector Megure, who was in charge of this case, thanks Shinichi for all his help, and a horde of journalists gather to interview high school detective Shinichi Kudo. Pose for the fans, pose for the fans!
Unlike later characterization which will sanctify Shinichi into a wonderful genius that can do no evil, episode 1 presents Shinichi in no uncertain terms as a JACKASS. He's smart, he's competent, but he's a smarmy fuck that doesn't care about anybody but himself. On top of that, he's letting his fame really get to his head. One high-profile case, and he's strutting down the street with love letters in hand, which he even shows to his best (and only) friend / love interest, Ran. Their relationship is... complicated. They've been friends since they were children, and have feelings for each other. Ran is starting to understand her feelings for Shinichi, and Shinichi... not so much. He struggles to understand his feelings for her, or her feelings for him, or, for that matter, anyone's feelings about anything. For example, here, after bragging about his love letters, he goes and insults Ran's father.
Ran's dad, Kogoro, is a professional private detective. He's introduced in the anime in a scene with Ran where he sits at the desk of the detective agency, complaining about this goddamn kid in all the newspapers who's driving him out of business. And when you think about it, he does have every right to be annoyed. He's a professional doing this as a job, and we'll later learn that he has altruistic motives for being a detective. He has a lot of vices and he often falls prey to the allure of fortune and fame, but when the rubber meets the road, we can generally count on Kogoro to do the right thing, or at least what he thinks is the right thing. Meanwhile, Shinichi's qualifications are just... he's read a lot of mystery novels. And his motives are questionable: he admires Sherlock Holmes, and wants to be just like him, all the way down to playing the violin (poorly, in Shinichi's case). So, Shinichi waltzes into crime scenes and starts spouting deductions in order to feed into his fandom devotion. And because he's not half bad at it, he becomes a sensation as a teenage detective, and now he's getting drunk on the popularity and stoking his ego. Ran defends Shinichi, but can you really blame Kogoro for being annoyed?
Shinichi gets to put on a whole deduction show of figuring out who murdered this guy and why. But more importantly, Shinichi notices two suspicious men wearing black trenchcoats, who were also on the roller coaster. Shinichi takes one look at them and decides, those are the eyes of a cold-blooded killer. Dude, what happened to being an objective and observant detective? Such unwarranted prejudice, just because you don't like someone's face. 041b061a72
