That's what the detective anime is all about
Shin'ichi Kudō is only 17 years old, but already a brilliant detective who regularly helps the Tokyo police with their investigations. One day, however, he runs into the infamous “Black Organization”. The criminals infuse him with the strong neurotoxin "Apoptoxin 4869", which is supposed to kill the young detective – but Shin'ichi is lucky. Instead of killing him, the poison just rejuvenates him.
Shin'ichi makes the best of the situation and takes on the identity of an elementary school student. He creates his new name from the names of his two favorite crime writers, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Edogawa Rampo: "Conan Edogawa". In order to protect himself and his relatives from the “men in black”, he initially only confides his true identity to his friend and neighbor, Professor Agasa. He builds all sorts of gadgets and gadgets for him so that he can continue to resolve dangerous cases in the body of a primary school student.
Through a white lie he comes as a "distant relative" of Shin'ichi with his sandpit friend Ran Mōri. This lives with her single parent "Paps", the former criminal investigator and now unsuccessful private detective Kogoro Mōri.
