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 -

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

by -

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.

Super recommend.

Conan is back!

by

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 -

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!

by

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 -

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 -

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.

Great for Fans!

by -

I grew up watching Case Closed so seeing this retelling of the story is refreshing to say the least. I loved seeing a little bit more about the Black Organization and the small cameo from "Sherry" was enjoyable.
The dub is done by a new team of voice actors and while I'm sad to see the old cast go (I've always been a BIG fan of Jerry Jewell's voice), I know that the new cast is skilled and I'm looking forward to learning to appreciate their work and I am grateful for their efforts in reviving this series in the west.

A nice start to a fresh revival

by -

Main thing that intrigued me was how the new dub would be. Honestly, it’s not bad. The majority of the voices are similar to the originals with little differences, with a few slightly off (but didn’t take long to welcome them). There are 2 characters specifically that are gonna take more time to get used to cause I just loved their previous voices. But overall, the dub was pretty good in this one. I’m looking forward to see how the upcoming releases will be. The special itself was entertaining, but it’s a recap/retelling, so nothing really new. It’s got updated visuals and soundtrack, which was nice, but I still prefer the original’s. There’s a couple deaths throughout but they just sort of happen and are done with. Then we get to the rollercoaster scene and let me say, they did not skimp out on this one. A bit on the gorier side instead of the beam of light. I’d suggest watching this if you’re familiar with this show, cause it spoils stuff down the road. But in all, it’s a start.

FINALLY!!!

by

OMG! Finally! I've been waiting for so long. I didn't think Funimation will continue with the series. AND I WAS RIGHT. It's not them. It's a different company yet they did the wonderful job with the voices. Honestly, it's hard to make the switch, but anything is better than nothing. And at least, they tried to make them sound more like their Japanese counterpart. Story-wise, I wasn't expecting anything more than I presumed to be "episode one". And this time, I was glad I was wrong. It provided more than what was shown in episode one as I poured my attention at the screen. Capturing every moment carefully as I found myself re-living those moments of waking up early in the morning to catch Case Closed on Adult Swim. Excited to see how far this company will go... Will they start dubbing the actual series? I hope so. But for now, I'm definitely supporting this, and considered this purchase worthy having.

Not The best entry-point for a newcomer.

by -

I purchased this installment because the product description implied this was a good jumping on point for a newcomer to Detective Conan. That turned out to not quite be the case. While the story around how Shinichi Kudo became Conan Edogawa was good enough, I was a little concerned with how they were going to wrap the story up. Essentially, they didn’t. There’s a hard cut to a montage of “Then I went on all these adventures!” Followed by a bookend featuring characters that appeared nowhere else in the movie, doing things that made absolutely no sense—since this was my first experience with the Case Closed franchise.

I’m sure this is much more enjoyable if you are an established Detective Conan fan, but it was deeply unsatisfying as a jumping-on point for the series.

A fun new take on the events of the first few episodes

by -

This is a very well done special, it's an interesting new look at some familiar plot.
I'm so glad Discotek is releasing Detective Conan stuff now, though one complaint is the subtitles are yellow with black outline and I've often had trouble reading subtitles in that color, for whatever reason it feels like they blend in way easier then white and black,
