About Case Closed Episode "One" Blu-ray
Detective Conan: Episode "One" The Great Detective Turned Small is an anime film directed by Yasuichiro Yamamoto and is a thrilling and inventive retelling of the original Detective Conan origin story. Created twenty years after the legendary young detective made his TV anime debut in 1996, this film serves as a re-introduction to Shinichi Kudo's crime-fighting exploits as Conan Edogawa, his distant and wistful romance with Ran Mouri, and his burgeoning friendship with Professor Agasa and the Junior Detective League. Hundreds of TV episodes and dozens of movies and specials featuring Detective Conan have been made, but don't fret -- you can pick the trial up right here!
It all started when Ran Mouri lost her smartphone. Shinichi Kudo, her would-be boyfriend, promises to replace it, but the high schooler is already making his name as a consulting detective for the police; when he abruptly leaves her karate tournament to skillfully solve a high-society murder case, Shinichi's going to have a take Ran on a special date to get back on her good side. A colorful amusement park beckons-- and so does a horrifying act of homicide!
In pursuing this new murder mystery, Shinichi stumbles across the shadowy Black Organization, a crime syndicate that attempts to silence the gifted sleuth the only way they can without attracting attention-- by force-feeding him a strange drug with unknown properties. Now, Shinichi finds himself younger--so much younger, in fact, that his police allies don't even recognize him! Armed with nothing but his wits and a brand new identity as Conan Edogawa, boy detective, Kudo takes off in pursuit of justice, answers, and someday, a return to his original age.

Conan is back! :)
by Jacob -
When I first heard there would be new English dubbed Conan content I was ecstatic. Case Closed (Detective Conan) is my favorite anime series of all-time so this was an instant purchase and this new English dub did not disappoint. I can't wait for more so just take my money!
Love it, Great for New and Old Fans

This is a must for any fan, old and new.
This is a reimagining of Conan's first episode to celebrate its 20th anniversary. It does a great job of expanding the events before and after the episode.
The plastic and cardboard they made to craft this blu-ray are beautiful and surprisingly sturdy. The special itself includes the original Japanese audio AND a dub. I was not expecting this and was thrilled to find out that it includes the original Japanese names. For context, the manga by Viz and the seasons from Funimation both gave the characters western names. Shinichi was Jimmy, Ran was Rachel, but in this dub they are Shinichi and Ran~! The dub is also pretty good.
I really hope this is a sign for more Conan and with a movie up for pre-order already it looks like that could be true. Whatever they do I'll be there for it.
The special features only include a Clean Opening, but that's okay. I cannot recommend this enough.
Conan is back!
Case Closed/Detective Conan is my favorite anime of all time, followed by Lupin the 3rd. I still remember when these two shows were on Adult Swim back to back all those years ago. I couldn’t be happier that a second run of this dub was released! The voice cast is different from the Funimation cast, and that will take some getting used to, but the new cast is very good!
This TV special of episode one does a great job of laying the foundation for the series, thus allowing newcomers to know the basics before watching the movies. I hope that TMS eventually decides to take a stab at the TV series as well, even if it’s just episode collections as opposed to the entire series. In the meantime, I’ll be buying every movie and TV special they release.
Thank you TMS and Discotek, you guys rock!
A great Retelling!
by Jake -
It's a great retelling of episode one with new details. It has Easter eggs fans of the series will love and its a great starting point for new fans of the show with a fantastic new English Dub. I do wish there was a little more in special features wise but its not that huge of a deal for me.
For the first time since 2010, Conan is back in English!
As a long time fan of Detective Conan/Case Closed, I never thought there would be anything for us fans who want to see something from this great series in English again. Seems like everyone had given up on the little detective.
Now, 10 years after the last US Conan home video release, it's back with a new English dub, and I still can't believe it. It is very great to have Conan back in America, and this Blu-Ray is a great place to start for those wanting to get back into the series or watching it for the first time.
Great Special, Great New English Voice Cast
by Mico -
A great and expanded retelling of the beginning of the series with a bunch of fan service for series veterans. Featuring a new English voice cast, that while noticeably different from the Funimation crew I grew up on, turns in a great performance that I look forward to hearing if more movies and specials from Detective Conan/Case Closed are localized.
If you are new to Detective Conan/Case Closed this can serve as a jumping-on point, although keep in mind there are a lot of references to characters and events that may be a little confusing for those who aren't familiar with the long-running series. These references can be ignored and don't spoil anything but I think it is useful to know that going in so you don't feel left behind.
Detective Conan/Case Closed is a personal favorite series of mine and I am excited that we got this special localized and I encourage anyone on the fence with this long-running series give this special a shot.
It's A Coin Toss
by Jared -
Overall it's a nice TV movie retelling the start of the series, but you are not getting too much new content. I did like how they added a little more to the various mysteries that lead up to the encounter with the men in black though. They also did a good job showing how fierce the men in black can be with the added scenes.
Aside from that I didn't feel like I got much more than if I re-read or re-watched the first couple of episodes of the series. I don't feel strongly one way or the other in terms of if you should buy the movie though. It's a coin toss, really.
