Why is Conan still AOTS every S even 20 years later?

Other anime, do you even try?
>>
I think the movies are all making lots of money at least.
>>
I just wish I could jump into this show without watching 700 episodes and 10 movies
>>
>>102023561
I've only watched 200 and then stopped.
The only movie i saw was the lupin the 3rd.
Can't wait for the second one.
>>
Does this manga have plot or is it like "monster of the week" and returns to the status quo regardless what happens
>>
>>102023730
I am at episode 720 and enjoyed marathoning all of it. Its truly one of the greatest things in manga/anime history Japan has created.

Long running stuff, like still running Ah My Goddess, or One Piece - all eventually get old and people loose interest. Not so with Conan - 20 years after, its still as good if not greater.

The key probably lies in huge amount of great developed characters, and the main appeal watching the show is the characters themselves. And of course, great thriller episodes and moments are what makes it stand above others. Practically every season Conan has some episodes that litterally better than anything else airing this season.

For those who cant be bothered watching 700+ episodes and dont know if its worth a try - at least watch the 11 Kaito Kid OAVs.
>>
>>102023861
It has and a very good one at that. That siad, its made the way that most chapters are normal "crime" chapters - as in normal detective novels or TV series, and some are "story" chapters - about Black Organization and stuff. Most episodes have relevant bits of info/character development for main story - but only couple a season truly focus on main thriller plot.

Its akin to say Monk or Castle - episodic crimes with few episodes per season dedicated entirely to main plot.
>>
>>102023861
Much of it is the characters going somewhere and then a crime happens. You could forget that there is a main plot about Conan.
>>
Latest Conan movie earned in box office double amount of what Madoka Rebellion earned. Its still super popular in japan.

And only anime that regularly gets OP/EDs by best japanese band.

The newest OP is good too, though nothing compares to Bz`s of course

>>
>>102024234
Conan generally manages to get very popular mainstream performers unlike most anime, that gets newbies recording companies want to promote

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyv1I-rF4o4
>>
Its also the only anime atm that still has best VA of all times, Megumi Hayashibara voicing character.
>>
I want to jump again on conan ride, is there any list with all the episode relevant to the plot and the ones with Kaito Kid?

Also, what are the best "filler" episode?
>>
>>102023924
As he said. If you did not watch Kaito Kid OAVs, do it now. Its among the best anime in years.

They'll have to end it eventually, right? Right?
>>
>>102024567
if you are able to understand basic german:
http://conanwiki.org/wiki/Liste_der_Anime-Episoden

also, is it worth carry on watching after episode 330? the filler episodes are okay, but they start to bore me after a while. they are just not as interesting as the episodes relevant to the story.
>>
>>102024567
Check the Conan wiki.But neverless, you`ll miss a LOT of character development and story relevant stuff if you only watch "Black Company" episodes. Most of episodes, have something relevant, even if its a minute or 10 seconds of it. Plus character development and introductions happen not only in "story" episodes.

Instead of trying to marathon it, might as well start from begining of currently airing season - and whenever something you dont know appears read wiki and watch relevant past episodes.

Still, marathoning Conan to catch up with current stuff is not actually that hard/time consuming. If thats not an option, read manga - since that way you`ll go through story much much faster, but not loose anything relevant.
>>
>>102024817
Conan is actually dead and he's in the Purgatory now, Cursed to solver mystery forever
>>
>>102024567
Most Conan filler is good imo, wouldn't skip it.
>>
>>102024975
>also, is it worth carry on watching after episode 330?
Of cours. Conan is separated in seasons of 24 episodes. Each season usually starts and ends with few Black Company episodes and multiple episodes tied to them (i.e. normal crime, but some development related to BO story).

Story went far ahead sinde 330, there was a hell lot of great story episodes. Its also worth watching most specials and multi-episode crime cases.

Was gutted when he quit Conan.

My main theory about who is behind BO got ruined recently. I always though Conan`s mother was behind Black Organization - since she along with Sharon Vineyard studied under Kaito`s father: and his occult research was what put foundation to black organization. Everyone in it is called alkohol name, since one of creators is Sharone VINEYARD, but actual mastermind behind scenes, conan`s mother.

However it seems i was wrong, since recent Detective Train episodes, shown the mother aware of BO, clearly on conan`s side and confronting Sharon with almost being killed by her.

So unless thats very perfectly prepared misdirection play - she is innocent. Aside from her - can see any other realistic options...

We know its not Professor, and most others lack motive or capabilities for all those things. Unless Mori`s wife is the main villain, that decided to get immortality cure after being shot by her husband.

What is Conan's beef with Lupin?
>>
>>102025149
well, the last very good episodes were 190-192, where ai was wounded. episodes with her are more interesting.
the thing is, the german synchronisation which is very good stopped at 330 and i dont like the sound of japanese...

Thats not such a big task. I also watched all of Gundam, One Piece (well, dropped at Punk Hazzard), all Smallwille, Prison Break, 24 and plenty of others. Neither required big amount of time, just some free days with nothing to do.

That said, i watched almost 300 Conan episodes over years on German TV - the rest i marathoned in few bunches, and now keep watching like 4-6 episodes at once, since they are still translated not very regularly, so just come back to it when i have time and nothing else to watch.

Just returned to it after months or so, planning to watch 712-24 today and tomorrow.

If Aoyama really wanted to be an ass, he could make the boss of the BO a minor/cameo character from Yaiba or Kaito Kid. They're in the same continuity as Conan, after all, so it's fair game to use them.
>>
>>102027108
yeah, the gold old times. they started to show them again in 2009 or 2010.
>>
>>102027138
He said BO boss is someone we know and appeared in manga. Not professor (he specifically mentioned it since it was most popular theory)

RTL 2 Anime Sozialisierung heißt: Dragon Ball, Conan, Ranma und Shin Chan. Vielleicht ist das der Grund, warum ich nur noch Manga lese. Achja, und Ghost in the Shell auf MTV 2.

Its kind of amusing though, that in Conan`s world, as "realistic as it gets" - magic actually canonically exists, and main villains goal is achiving immortality.

I'm sorry m8. I'm not german, but I used to know german pretty well when I was still watching RTL2. Ever since that time, I haven't had german practice so let's see if I can still decipher your hitlerrunes.

RTL2 still airs shows like DB, conan, ranma and shinchan (fuck yeah shinchan). However that is the grounds why I no longer read manga. Oh yes, and ghost in the shell on MTV2 (this is a channel right?)

Still though, fucking love all those shows,
Ranma was my first experience with kawaii uguu shit and I loved every second of it.
Shinchan was the funniest shit.
etc etc

Since if he would, Black Organization would assassinate him. He technically and Ai as well can switch back, but its too dangerous until he crushes BO.

I was kinda hoping that guy who said Ai died was not trolling. That would have been quite a bold move.

It's the reason why I don''t watch any anime anymore (just read manga). MTV2 was a channel, yes. I also still love Ranma, it guided me to Maison Ikkoko, which is still my favorite manga of all time.

Yup, Ranma was great. Still one of my most favorite manga/anime.

And RTL aside, VOX shown a lot of actually good anime and MTV/Viva used to show some as well.
