Can Detective Conan crack the case…while trapped in a kid’s body?

Jimmy Kudo, the son of a world-renowned mystery writer, is a high school detective who has cracked the most baffling of cases. One day while on a date with his childhood friend Rachel Moore, Jimmy observes a pair of men in black involved in some shady business. The men capture Jimmy and give him a poisonous substance to rub out their witness. But instead of killing him, it turns him into a little kid! Jimmy takes on the pseudonym Conan Edogawa and continues to solve all the difficult cases that come his way. All the while, he's looking for the men in black and the mysterious organization they're with in order to find a cure for his miniature malady.

When Conan and Harley join forces to win a crime-solving competition, it’s not all fun and games. The head of a toy company has been murdered, and the only clue is a cryptic message spelled out in wooden blocks. Then the detectives race to find a terrorist at a baseball championship—and with a bomb planted somewhere in the stadium, they can’t afford to strike out! Meanwhile, Anita makes a difficult choice. Given the opportunity to enter the Witness Protection Program, will she disappear from Conan’s life forever?
We pick up from the last issue with the Jr Detective League trying to solve a slayer case, this is quickly resolved.

The first of the two main cases of the issue has Conan and Det Moore trying to find the owner of a strange missing cell phone, different from the usual murder and robbery cases.

The other main case and my favorite of the issue sees Harley and Kazuha stop by for a nice dinner, at which a wager is made to decide what the group will do in Osaka. The team that solves the case Det Moore is working on gets to pick, it is Conan and Harley vs Det Moore, Rachel and taking candy from a baby. The case involves a murder at a toy company and the competition between the groups is great. Once the case is completed it leads directly into the event the winning team decided on and at this event they run right into the case for the following issue.

Case Closed/Detective Conan has been going strong for a full eighteen years now, and it hasn't shown even the slightest sign of faltering or fading. The Simpsons have been going since 1989 and they're all but dead; Case Closed on the other hand, has been going strong since 1994 and has churned out more than twice the amount already. Case Closed has 16 films, 21 series, consisting of 677 episodes. For eighteen years now, Gosho Aoyama has been writing Case Closed, and the writing has been as strong and intelligent as it's ever been. It's a completely perfect work of genius. It was inspired by the Sherlock Holmes stories and has now come close to being their equal. If this series reaches 20 years, it WILL become their equal. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoys manga, books, films and mysteries.
