You REALLY Want to Know What to Watch?


All of the episodes of course! But yes, there's episodes and then there's the ones that actually deal with Conan and his quest to return
to being Kudo Shinichi while alieviating the world of the Black Organization ... Since I've been asked a few times over the years

Thus, you would ideally want to watch these episodes in order so have a good idea of where the series going ... uum, SUSPECT
of where's it's going ... Aoyama is extremely clever!


And this is *NOT* to say you shouldn't watch all the other episodes (or label them as fillers!!).
The true star of this series has always been the CASES (mysteries) not ANY actual character.



Yeah, yeah, one of these years I'll break it down more as to what was significant in each of these episodes ~_~
