Detective Conan

"Detective Conan in Crime & Mystery Manga" is a popular series of Japanese crime fiction. The series is based on the works of Japanese writer Ranpo Edogawa. Like his predecessors, Detective Conan involves murders and attempted murders, kidnappings, and criminal gangs. Readers of this manga can expect action-packed adventures that are both eerie and heartbreaking.

The series focuses on the quest of the protagonist, Shinichi, to return to his adult self. In addition to the protagonist, the series is populated with an ever-growing supporting cast, each with a backstory, characteristics, and goals. Ran is more than just a love interest, as she is a powerful karate champion who comes close to figuring out Conan's secret. Detective Conan's elementary school friends, who call themselves "Detective Boys," are also part of the series, and show a knack for solving mysteries.

Unlike his predecessors, the series features a cast of talented and incredibly talented characters, including Shinichi, a brilliant mystery writer and his wife, a retired actress. Shinichi has a unique gift for reading lips and is able to defuse bombs without instructions. His ability to impersonate other characters, however, causes him to have some difficulty in changing his dialect. This can be frustrating, and many readers will lose interest in the series if they aren't able to connect with their favorite characters.


Pluto in Crime & Mystery Manga is an interesting read about the future of robots. The story of the robots reflects a futuristic world in which human emotions are manifested by machines. They are designed to be friendly but sometimes, they turn on people by attacking them with objects that look like horns. Pluto tries to find out who is behind the crimes. And, as a robot detective, he does it while avoiding getting killed himself.

This is a highly addictive manga series that involves a robot detective investigating murders. The story is linear, but there are tons of twists and mysteries. You will be intrigued and on the edge of your seat throughout each chapter. The artwork is excellent, and there are plenty of pictures to look at. The series is so well-executed that you'll want to read all eight volumes. I'd highly recommend it, if you like mystery and suspense.

It is written and illustrated by Naoki Urasawa. While there are some adult themes, they are handled maturely. Even the children reading the manga won't find the content objectionable. As with all great books, the manga is available worldwide, and you can find a large selection online. You can also find many other series of this genre. They will keep you entertained for a long time. There are a variety of themes and styles to suit your tastes.
