Case Closed, also known as Detective Conan, Meitantei Konan, is a Japanese detective manga and anime series written and illustrated by Gosho Aoyama and serialized in Weekly Sh┼Źnen Sunday since 1994. The name "Case Closed" for the English language release results from concerns of copyright conflict with the Conan the Barbarian franchise. The story follows the adventures of Jimmy Kudo, a prodigious young detective who was inadvertently transformed into a seven-year-old.

Case Closed was adapted into an anime series by the animation studio Tokyo Movie Shinsha, directed by Kenji Kodama and Taiichiro Yamamoto, and is broadcast in Japan on Nippon Television, Yomiuri TV and Animax. The first episode aired on January 8, 1996, with 520 episodes as of December 15, 2008. The series has seen high levels of popularity in both manga and anime formats in Japan since its reception, and has also been adapted into 12 Golden Week movies, with the first released on April 17, 1997, and one movie released each year since. Ten of the movies held a top 10 box office position in the year they were screened. In addition, nine OVAs have been released.

Shinichi Kudou is a high-school student who is famous for helping the police solve crimes. His almost girlfriend, Ran Mouri, is the captain of the karate club. Ran’s father, Kogoro Mouri, is a detective and blames Shin’ichi for his lack of business. One night while Shin’ichi follows someone suspicious in the amusement park Tropical Land, he is given poison by a man in black which was supposed to kill him, but instead shrinks him to the of a six year old. Under the suggestion of Professor Agasa, he keeps his identity a secret from everyone until he can change back, going under the name Conan Edogawa based from mystery writers Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Ranpo Edogawa.
