Well, ever since Detective Conan came to America as the anime show, Case Closed, it's become me #1 Favorite anime. However, i've come to the conclusion that Adult Swim will most likely never aire (Did I spell that right? O.o) it again. So, i've decided to download all my episodes of Detective Conan.
Well enough of that, lets start my review. :)
Well first off, I love the storyline. Well, the theme is obviously similar to that of Detective Sherlock Holmes. (I don't know if anyone has seen that show before) (Plus, I can't remember the full name of it) It's... how do I put it, somewhat unique in my views. After all, his way of using other people to solve the mysteries that he himself can't in his present state definitely shows how much thought the writers of this anime have put into this series. Plus, if you think about it, the creators and writers (or whoever comes up with all of these ideas) of Detective Conan have thought up of hundred's of different ways for people to die. They got over 400 or more episodes, so that probably means these guys most know ways to kill people (... in a fictionalistically anime way... but that would still give me the chills)(Best not to mess with these guys. O.o)
I don't know about you guys, but my favorite type of relationship to see is a childhood relationship (I know, I know, some people may say that "But it's so easy to figure out what happens at the end for them", but that's not really the point why I like it so much). Shinichi with Ran... man i'm rooting for them, and hopefully, it really does work out in the end. (They always get so close to getting towards one another, but never get there.... most of the time. :x But yeah, definitely a thumbs up from me when it comes to those kinds of things. (What can I say? I love drama.) (... even though that makes me sound girly, but meh)
The graphics on this anime series show that it definitely was kind of the older looks, like it was made back who knows when. (Well actually, it was made in 1994 as a Comic series, and then in 1996, became an anime series, so it's got the 90's graphics on it) However, unlike most anime series, the looks and graphics on Detective Conan became better, sharper, and clearer as the series progressed (showing that they really do care to bring the best in updated quality to their anime series), plus, they even gave the movies the highest in updated graphics quality, I think.... (Now that I think about, most anime series, when they have a movie come out, use their highest quality graphics, like Inuyasha did.)
I love the bright characteristics that each character brings to the series, making it whole. I would name them all.... but uh, I think you guys get the idea on that part. All i'm saying, is that, without them, it probably wouldn't be as it is. Plus, some of the characters in the series you don't get to see all the time, however, they are still considered main characters because of how often they do show up sometimes, like Heiji, Kazuha, The police officers, and even the parents of Shinichi, and the parents of Ran. (But actuallly Ran's father, Kogorou, is definitely a main character, as you see him frequently thoughout the series)
Of course, out of a scale of 10, I give this anime a 10 because it's my favorite, and because I think it's got all the right qualities, but then again, not everyone shares the save view as I do with this anime. However, it is my review after all, so there you have it.
BTW: This is actually a pre-review. I actually plan on making a more full-in-depth review once i'm able to analyze everything. I really wouldn't like it actually if this review were to be posted on BakaUpdates. I was actually curious as to how people would think this review is like. I know it's definitely not the greatest, and I really gotta sort out what I have to put in my review, and what I shouldn't. So, if you guys get the chance, could you possibly criticize my review. I don't care if it's negative or positive. In fact, negative criticism will help me to get better at making reviews. I always wanted to be a pro-reviewer, but I could never make out the words right or organize my info. So hopefully someone will come by and comment on this. Later on, when I get enough criticism and advice, and when I clean-up my review skills, i'll post a more clearer review on Detective Conan.
