Can Detective Conan crack the case...while trapped in a kid's body? When ace high school detective Jimmy Kudo is fed a mysterious substance by a pair of nefarious men in black-poof! He is physically transformed into a first grader. Until Jimmy can find a cure for his miniature malady, he takes on the pseudonym Conan Edogawa and continues to solve all the cases that come his way. Serena introduces Makoto to her parents! Her dad is thrilled to learn that his daughter is dating a karate champ, but all her mom sees is a brawler from the wrong side of the tracks. Makoto decides to prove himself by stopping the Kaito Kid from robbing Serena's family yet again-and he's even more motivated when he suspects the Kid might also steal Serena's heart! Then Conan finds the owner of a lost cat, but the case goes from fluffy to fatal. And Detective Takagi wonders if his girlfriend, Detective Sato, is investigating for two!
Gosho Aoyama made his debut in 1992 with Chotto Matte (Wait a Minute), which won Shogakukan's prestigious Shinjin Comic Taisho (Newcomer's Award for Comics) and launched his career as a critically acclaimed, top-selling manga artist. In addition to Detective Conan, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 2001, Aoyama created the popular manga Yaiba, which won the Shogakukan Manga Award in 1992. Aoyama's manga is greatly influenced by his boyhood love for mystery, adventure and baseball, and he has cited the tales of Arsene Lupin and Sherlock Holmes and the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as some of his childhood favorites.
