I don't know if this has been ask before or if I have the right section of the forums but now that Funimation and Crunchyroll are in a partnership will you guys be adding the earlier episodes of Detective Conan (Case Closed)? Because it would make sense if you did.

While it is possible that will eventually happen, keep in mind Funimation only has episodes 1-130. That still would leave a large gap to the point CR picked up the simulcast with episode 754.

It would still benefit CR to have the first episode, etc. of Case Closed for the benefit of new viewers for the show. People are more likely to try it out if they don't have to go looking for the beginning of the show =p

Case Closed, as a family-oriented, long-running show, shouldn't be too difficult for new/casual viewers to jump in. Is there ever a case where it isn't mentioned that Conan is a teenager who was turned into a little kid?

I think it'd be beneficial to people who are just starting the show because of character backgrounds. Not just Shinichi's. Like, FBI officer Jody and Shuichi.. or even Heiji and Kaitou Kid. Knowing Shinichi isn't as young as he currently looks isn't the only thing new viewers need to know. Haibara is a big part of that, how she came to be where she is now and why is something needed to know. The detective boys play a small part of things. Ran and Shinichi's relationship. Stuff about Ran's parents, Shinichi's parents.. A lot of clues about the BO.

While the show does seem to be plotless at times, there is a plot in there where the first 500+ episodes are needed to fully understand the story.

I hope they add the earlier episodes as well, and then get the rights to the ones that Funi doesn't have. It would be nice to get the Movies as well.. I need to see movies 18 to the current one. Maybe even the short side stories, like the one from when Shinichi was a baby.

I agree. I've been thinking about starting my husband on the CR episodes (he's only seen the Funi episodes), but I think that would be a horrible way to spoil Haibara's intro, as well as that of many other characters such as Vermouth, Akai, Sera and Furuya. CR wouldn't even have to translate the filler episodes if they don't want to spend the money on them.
