Sayuri Haruno dreams of becoming a pastry chef and enrolls in Fleurir Confectionary Academy, an elite school located in Tokyo’s trendy Aoyama district. At Fleurir, she finds herself surrounded by charming boys, each one distinctly unique. Out of the entire class, Ryo Kouduki’s desire to become a pastry chef is the strongest. Blessed with unparalleled technique, instructor Mitsuki Aoi acts like a prince and is hugely popular at the school. Gilbert Hanafusa, the mood maker of the bunch, is a student from France. Yoshinosuke Suzumi is not very good at expressing his feelings, but underneath his stony exterior lies a wholehearted passion for wagashi (Japanese sweets).

And now for a title that many of you have been asking for, Case Closed, known in Japan as Detective Conan, will finally be making its simulcast debut here on Crunchyroll for members in the USA and Canada! Details on air times will be announced later, and we will be only streaming the simulcast episodes at this time.



There's no mystery Conan cannot solve!

The son of a world famous mystery writer, Shinichi Kudo, has achieved his own notoriety by assisting the local police as a student detective. He has always been able to solve the most difficult of criminal cases using his wits and power of reason. One day while on a date with his girlfriend, he encounters two suspicious men dressed in black. His natural instinct and intuition leads him to believe that these men may be associated with some kind of criminal activity, so he follows one of them. Just as he becomes a witness to a crime being committed by this man, he is knocked unconscious by the man’s accomplice and is forced to drink a mysterious liquid. When he next wakes up, he finds he has reverted back to being a small child.

Dazed, confused and not knowing who to turn to, Shinichi heads for home where he comes across his neighbor and a scientist, Dr. Agasa. After some intensive convincing, Dr. Agasa finally believes that this little boy is in fact Shinichi. As the mysterious liquid appears to be some kind of a new invention, there is no way to turn Shinichi back to his formal self until the ingredients of this liquid are discovered. Therefore, to keep Shinichi away from any more trouble, Dr. Agasa advises him to hide his true identity and stay at his girlfriend’s house whose father, Kogoro Mouri, operates a detective agency. It is from here that Shinichi will be able to obtain the information about the men in black who poisoned him, and the evil organization behind them.

As he must remain incognito, Shinichi now must assume a new identity and is henceforth known as Conan Edogawa and as such, the distinguished Detective Conan is born. With the brains of a genius detective and the looks and strength of an elementary school student, Detective Conan proceeds to solve crimes for Kogoro and Inspector Megure using his inborn talents as well as secret weapons created by Dr. Agasa all the while without letting them know he is the one solving these mysteries. Will Detective Conan be able to find the men in black so that he can return to his true and former self?

Join Detective Conan in his adventures to solve the greatest mystery of all time.
