About This Book
Case Closed, known as (Meitantei Konan) in Japan and in non-English speaking
countries, is a detective manga and anime series by Gosho Aoyama.
At the beginning of the story, 17-year old (16 years in the manga) high school student Jimmy Kudo (Shin'ichi Kudo in the Japanese release) becomes the boy, Conan Edogawa. Jimmy Kudo in the beginning of Case Closed is known as a high school student detective. One day, Shin'ichi goes to a theme park named "Tropical Land," with his childhood friend, Rachel Moore (Ran Mori). He encountered a case where a roller coaster passenger, Kishida (Kenneth in the English anime), is killed in a spectacularly bloody decapitation. He solved the case and on his return home, he witnesses a suspicious deal involving some men dressed completely in black. Another man in black spots him, knocks him down, and gives him an untested poison named Apoptoxin-4869 (APTX4869), which is intended to kill him. The poison does not kill him. However, when he came to his senses, his body had shrunk down to the size of an elementary school boy...
Case Closed has the format of classical mystery/crime literature, with such classical set ups such as the Closed-Room-Type murder case, and cases with a limited number of suspects. It also includes the wrap up of the case and conclusion/solution of the case like in typical crime literature. Many references to other detective literature can also be found for fans of detective novels; References to Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie's works, Kogoro Akechi, Kosuke Kindaichi, Arsene Lupin, Maigret and many more.
