Detective Conan is one such anime that has not only stood the test of time but has successfully become a pop-cultural phenomenon. It would be an understatement to say it is one of the best anime shows ever produced.

Also known as Case Closed, the series tells the story of a detective teen prodigy whose body got transformed into a kid under mysterious conditions.

Detective Conan started in 1996 and is currently running on its 31st season. The catalog of this franchise continues after more than just TV series, as it has released multiple movies, specials, and a lot more.

The franchise also includes four live-action movies and one live-action TV drama series.

Ideally, you should watch Case Closed in the release order. That way, you can watch the episodes, movies, special episodes, live-action series, and crossover episodes according to the intended timeline. You can watch the OVAs and spinoff series between or after completing the TV anime and movies.
