Detective Conan

Shinichi Kudou, a high school student of astounding talent in detective work, is well known for having solved several challenging cases. One day, when Shinichi spots two suspicious men and decides to follow them, he inadvertently becomes witness to a disturbing illegal activity. Unfortunately, he is caught in the act, so the men dose him with an experimental drug formulated by their criminal organization, leaving him to his death. However, to his own astonishment, Shinichi lives to see another day, but now in the body of a seven-year-old child. Perfectly preserving his original intelligence, he hides his real identity from everyone, including his childhood friend Ran Mouri and her father, private detective Kogorou Mouri. To this end, he takes on the alias of Conan Edogawa, inspired by the mystery writers Arthur Conan Doyle and Ranpo Edogawa. Detective Conan follows Shinichi who, as Conan, starts secretly solving the senior Mouri's cases from behind the scenes with his still exceptional sleuthing skills, while covertly investigating the organization responsible for his current state, hoping to reverse the drug's effects someday.

Detective Conan: The right thing is… to have faith in life, until you’re sure of death. That’s what makes a great detective.
Detective Conan: They say time and a people’s heart are inversely proportional. The more it passes, the more they grow apart. It seems there are some rare exceptions though.
Detective Conan: She should want to see me. If I had said how I feel about her, she would miss me even more. All this time, I've been breaking her heart by keeping her wait, yet I can't still appear before her eyes. I never want to see her cry anymore. Even if it means I no longer exist in her heart. How immature of me, right?

Detective Conan: Flowers are fragile and ephemeral... Even if you meant to protect them with a surrounding fence from wind and rain, they would die without sunlight...and a spindly fence has no power against a strong wind. Are you fully aware of that, Kudo-kun?..
Detective Conan: If you force me to pick one… It’d be black. It covers up the things inside of me that I don’t want to be known about. Well, for the same reason… Black is the color I hate too.
Detective Conan: You can't perform the same trick twice with one audience. If performed only once, the magic leaves a strong impression. It will then blossom into a beautiful miracle in their hearts.

Detective Conan: Sorry, a trick is nothing but a puzzle mankind came up with. If you use your head, you can uncover the logical answer. It’s disappointing. No matter the explanation I think of, I cannot understand why one person would kill another. Even if I can see why, I can’t understand why.
Detective Conan: People have emotions. A troublesome attribute that's not only invisible, but also changes easily. If it's friendship or love, then that's fine. But if by some trigger it changes to malice and vengeance, then that could bring forth thoughts of murder.
Detective Conan: Don't judge people from the outside. Like any rose has thorns, the more the person appears nice on the outside, the more you should doubt the inside.
