The first anime I watched and enjoyed as a kid was Detective Conan. The show is about a detective named Shinichi, who has solved many cases in his life. He’s only 10 years old when the story begins, but he solves all those crimes with help from his friends and family. Something I learned from watching this show is that even if you’re young – like Shinichi- there are lots of things you can do to help your community!
Shinichi solves all crime cases with help from friends and family
The show teaches kids that they can make a difference in the world, even if they’re young!
Another thing I learned from Detective Conan is how to be smart when solving crimes. There are lots of different clues an investigator has to look for before making his/her conclusion on what happened. If you want to solve these mysteries too, then there are always more episodes where Shinichi had solved it! You’ll figure out who did it by looking at their motives and the evidence found around them. For example, when someone dies because there was no oxygen left in this area but he noticed some strange marks on the ground.. It might have been a suicide.
Staying calm and taking time to think about what happened before jumping to conclusions is the best way of solving a mystery!
There are many lessons that Detective Conan have taught me as an adult, but there’s one big lesson I learned from watching it when I was younger: you can always make friends if you’re nice to people. Since Shinichi never had any close friends in school he started talking with his classmates more often and tried harder at doing well in class so that they would like him too. The only thing than changed was how much fun my days were! Being able to spend time with other kids who liked anime or manga just made me feel better about myself because we shared something special together instead of feeling like I was on the outside.
This lesson also applies to everyone, whether you’re looking for friends or not!
Shinichi’s plan of making a friend by being nice works because he didn’t just ask one person how their day went and then call it quits when they don’t want anything else to do with him. The more people you talk to about your interests the better chance that someone will be interested in them too which means there are new opportunities waiting for you around every corner! And if nobody is going out of their way talking to me? It’s my job as an adult who doesn’t have time for sports or other activities like Shinichi does (despite his best efforts) to make sure I go up and introduce myself to someone.
This is one of my personal favorites because I am the type of person who has a hard time meeting people and when Shinichi starts talking to strangers, it reminds me that there’s no shame in trying! And if you’re lucky enough to meet up with them again at school or work then they’ll know what an awesome guy/girl you are (and who knows? They might even want some help solving their own case!)
Shinichi teaches us how important it is not just for adults but also kids like him that we stay curious about life which is really easy for children given all the fun things to do like playing hide-and-seek. But as he grows older and finds himself stuck inside his house for days because of his condition, Shinichi starts to get kind of bored.
Shinichi learns how important it is not just for adults but also kids like him that we stay curious about life which is really easy for children given all the fun things to do like playing hide-and-seek. But as he grows older and finds himself stuck inside his house for days because of his condition, Shinichi starts to get kind of bored. He asks Mouri if there’s a way he can out smart Conan but instead they come up with something else:
“Mouri suggested letting me go on outings under heavy supervision so I could learn more about what was going on outside my neighborhood.” -Conan Case Files Vol 101 pg 67
Shinichi learns through these outings that it’s good to be curious about life and people because you never know what can happen. He also sees the importance of being a detective when he gets framed for murder:
“I was in awe, too eager at first to do anything but stare. I didn’t want this moment to end.” -Conan Case Files Vol 101 pg 104
Shinichi solves his own case with Mouri by investigating the scene of crime like an adult would, which is something he had not done before as a child. Shinichi starts thinking more critically and figures out who really committed the crimes just from looking at their shoes! And even though Conan solved his case on his own without help from Mouri, he is still appreciative of his help and all that he has done.
Shinichi meets a new character in this volume called Reiko Kujo who always seems to have an alibi for every crime she commits just like Conan does! Shinichi realizes the importance of these cases because it teaches him how to think critically about crimes and come up with possible solutions on his own without someone else’s help or guiding hand. It also reaffirms what Shinichi learned earlier: sometimes you need to be curious about life and people around you if you don’t want them to get away from your grasp.” -Conan Case Files Vol 101 pg 102
“This was my first time as I had been playing detective Conan for so long and I was surprised by how difficult it is to solve the case. It took a lot of thinking, but that’s what detective Conan does! Detective Conan always has his friends or Mouri-san (Inspector Takagi) there with him in order to help through cases.” -Conan Case Files Vol 101 pg 103
“I love reading about Shinichi and watching as he finds clues on his own without someone else telling him where they are like when Ran would ask me if she should sit next to Shinichi at school because he seemed down. These moments reinforce all those times you helped out too!” – Connan Case Files Vol 101 pg 104
This volume reaffirms everything I learned before: sometimes you need to take a break, sometimes you need help from others, and sometimes even if it seems impossible at first glance there’s always a way out. Conclusion: I want to thank Detective Conan for everything that he has taught me over the years as well as thanking Gosho Aoyama-sensei for creating such an amazing manga series! Thank you so much for this experience of reading and watching your detective work in action! Now all we have left is waiting until December 2019 when the next movie will come out (titled “Detective Conan Movie 21”!). I can’t wait to see what happens with Shinichi/Conan and his friends once again. See you soon ! A long-form blog post should
