Haven't seen Detective Conan yet but from what I understand, I don't really need to right? A friend of mine did recommend me to though but I'm not sure yet with that many episodes..

Nope. Unless,


I also read that some episodes in this adaptation will cover cases from Detective Conan that included Kaito Kid, but this time in Kid's perspective. I'm very interested in seeing those.


Okay, thanks for answering this. Are there any other cross over characters from both series?

Other characters that appeared in Conan:
Inspector Nakamori always shows up in Kid cases. Aoko had a brief appearance in the first Kid episode. Hakuba had a prominent role in episodes 219 and 479. He also had a small appearance in movie 10. Jii appears every now and then as he helps Kaito.

The first part of Conan episode 219 adapted Magic Katio chapters 23-24. You might remember Shinichi and inspector Megure making an appearance and both are Conan characters. That's probably the reason why they adapted those chapters.

After reading chapter 31, I guess that makes it clear who the shadowy figure is. Tying the events of the new manga chapters with the anime this soon is a great idea.

Sadly, no one got the rights to it.

I'm glad other people are watching this it's had my favorite premiere of the shows I've seen so far. Hopefully it doesn't drop off in entertainment.

So far I'm pretty glad I picked it up on a whim.

Episode 2

Hmm, the episode deals with the involvement of a jewel. Should of known. Anyways, it was alright and I like the way it was executed overall.

Kaito showing up was pretty classic at night. Fits well with his style. And somehow, his athleticism never ceases to amaze me. The ED song is perhaps one of my favorites from this series now.

The music has made every moment of this show enjoyable so far, let's hope this trend continues.

Guess I'll add my thoughts here since this is the show's thread.

I love the Kaito x Aoko subplot of the episode. Really love the present her gave her. The opening and ending are so addicting. When I listen to the opening, I upon reflex listen to the ending, rinse, and repeat. And the fact that my favorite composer is doing music composition is awesome

I do feel kinda bad for the inspector though , at least he had a good time at the end of the episode. One reviewer I follow commented that the jewel they are looking for is like the Philosopher's Stone, and I hit myself in the head for not realizing it earlier.

Anyway, great episode, can't wait for more. Makes me want to check out Detective Conan when the early episodes are available here.

The latest episode was okay with the action picking up a bit in the second half. I didn't know Kaito had skills at playing pool...

Was Akao drunk? LOL. Oh that girl.

I enjoy watching Kaito but since episode 5 I can't help but feel a little... let down? Is that the right word? Not sure, anyway:

We all know that Kaito Kid appears in several of Conan's cases and that the two have a rivalry and each has a grudging respect for the other's skills. I also know that Magic Kaito is a being separate from Detective Conan's Kaito Kid and that this episode with Witch is from the original manga, albeit in a slightly different skin.

But in my mind I cannot shake the connections between Kid and Conan and seeing Magic be proven to be real, curses, voodoo, and the such, cheapens the interesting case work in Conan. Imagine how easy it would be to commit an untraceable crime via magic! Murder via voodoo doll would be practically impossible to prove and min-controlled theft would make the culprit practically untraceable.

I realise I'm being cynical and picking holes where I really don't need to, but in a created universe so tightly ties together as Aoyama's is Magic Kaito's existing story really feels like the weak link.

Show has magic, like not magician magic but like thaumaturgy type magic. Not sure if I like it yet, but it might make an interesting plot point in the future. Did magic exist in DC?

No.

Detective Conan has always made a point of disproving "magic" and the only iffy-plot points would be the science of the drug that shrank him down to child-size.

The Magic Kaito 1412 series is a reboot of the previous Magic Kaito series and specials back in 2010 and 2011, and though they originally aired as "Detective Conan Specials" it would be a mistake to conjoin the two together as one complete universe.

The original Magic Kaito Manga series began publication in Shogakukan in 1987 but Detective Conan began serialisation in the same magazine, but in 1994. That being 7 years later.

The Kaito Kid that appears in Conan's world is a completely separate but almost entirely identical being to the Kid In Magic Kaito.

Ah ok. I thought it would have been weird that there's actual magic in the same universe with DC. Gracias

The latest episode just made my night. Kaito on the coaster had me balling. As a girl, I could actually see that ice cream line working in real life, even if it is a bit...haha...but it was the right atmosphere. And loved that trick Kaito used to get out of that situation. It seems that he's been getting a lot of close calls in the past couple of episodes.
