Detective Conan 「名探偵コナン」, is a Japanese detective manga series written and illustrated by Gosho Aoyama. It has been serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Shounen Sunday since January 19, 1994, and has been collected into 97 tankoubon volumes as of December 18, 2019. Due to legal problems with the name Detective Conan, the English language releases from Funimation and Viz were renamed to Case Closed.

The tankoubon volumes of the manga have sold over 230 million copies worldwide, making it the fifth-best-selling manga series. In 2001, the manga was awarded the 46th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shounen category. The anime adaptation has been well received and ranked in the top twenty in Animage's polls between 1996 and 2001. In the Japanese anime television ranking, Detective Conan episodes ranked in the top second on a weekly basis. Both the manga and the anime have had positive response from critics for their plot and cases.As of 2018, The manga has been sold in 25 countries, while the anime has been broadcast in 40 countries.

The anime version of Detective Conan is produced by Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation and TMS Entertainment. Over 950 episodes have aired in Japan since the anime's premiere on January 8, 1996, making it the sixteenth longest anime series to date. Initially, Shogakukan collected and released the episodes on VHS video cassettes from June 1996 to October 2006. Four hundred and twenty-six episodes were released on VHS until Shogakukan abandoned the format and switched over to DVDs, starting over from the first episode. For the fifteenth anniversary of the anime series, the series was made available for video on demand. Detective Conan was later broadcast in North America on NHK's cable network TV Japan. Crunchyroll began simulcasting the series in October 2014.

In 2003, the first 104 episodes were licensed by Funimation for distribution in North America, under the title Case Closed because of legal considerations. The Detective Conan anime has also been released in other languages such as French, German, Italian, and many more. Detective Conan debuted on Cartoon Network as part of their Adult Swim programming block on May 24, 2004, no more than 50 episodes were licensed from Funimation due to low ratings. The Canadian channel YTV picked up the Case Closed series and broadcast 22 episodes between April 7, 2006, and September 2, 2006, before taking it off the air. Funimation made the series available with the launch of the Funimation Channel in November 2005, it was temporary available on Colours TV during its syndication with the Funimation Channel.bFunimation lost the rights to the series in 2018.

A separate English adaptation of the series by Animax Asia premiered in the Philippines on January 18, 2006, under the name Detective Conan. Because Animax were unable to obtain further TV broadcast rights, their version comprised only 52 episodes. The series continued with reruns until August 7, 2006, when it was removed from the station. The California-based channel United Television Broadcasting (UTB) aired Detective Conan with English subtitles from 2011 until 2014, until episode 421.

Funimation also released DVDs of their dubbed series beginning August 24, 2004. Initially, the releases were done in single DVDs and future episodes were released in seasonal boxes; 130 episodes have been released in total. These boxes were later re-released in redesigned boxes called Viridian edition. Funimation began streaming Case Closed episodes in March 2013. Hanabee Entertainment licensed the series for distribution in Australia.

In January 2016, 52 episodes of the anime appeared on Netflix, initially under its original title Detective Conan before changing to its English moniker Case Closed. The episodes are listed as "season one", although in reality they are episodes #748 to #799. The episodes are only available in Japanese, but are subtitled. The availability is likely part of Netflix's efforts to expand its anime catalog.

Twenty-three feature films based on the Detective Conan series have been released. They are animated by TMS Entertainment and produced by Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation, Nippon Television, ShoPro, and Toho. The first seven were directed by Kenji Kodama, films 8–15 were directed by Yasuichiro Yamamoto, and films 16 and onwards have been directed by Kobun Shizuno. The films have been released in April of each year, starting in 1997 with the first film, Case Closed: The Time Bombed Skyscraper. The 23rd film, Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire was released on April 12, 2019. The second film and onwards were the top twenty grossing anime films in Japan. The revenue earned from the films funded Toho's other film projects. Each film was adapted into two film comics which were released in the fourth quarter of the same year. Funimation released English dubbed versions of the first six films on Region 1 DVDs between October 3, 2006, and February 16, 2010.

So, Now this year 2020 The Detective Conan Movie 24.The Scarlet Bullet is the 24th movie in the Detective Conan franchise and the third which involves the FBI. It will be released in Japan on April 17, 2020, which makes it the first movie to premiere in the Reiwa period. The movie is based on the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Get this petition to the distributor's attention as I want to join a screening and so do people who appreciate art. I hope people who are in international film releasing understand this concern. We have been successful in bringing Weathering With You (Tenki no Ko) to the theatres, so let's make this access too!

"We want this Movie To screen in the Indian Theatres"

There is a handful of community in India that enjoy watching anime films and shows and with that comes the question of piracy. We all want to be patriots and stop this by legally watching the film. I understand that most Indian audience have different taste but we must be open and accept other different ideals and opinions.

We all hope for the Detective Conan Movie release here in India very soon....!
