List Of Case Closed Characters

The anime and manga series Case Closed, known as Meitantei Conan (名探偵コナン?, lit. Great Detective Conan, officially translated as Detective Conan) in Japan, features an extensive cast of characters created by Gosho Aoyama. The series takes place in modern day Japan and follows amateur detective Jimmy Kudo who solves cases in an episodic fashion.

The series begins when Jimmy Kudo is fed a deadly poison by Gin and Vodka which was designed to kill a person without any physical symptoms. The poison instead changed his body to that of a young child. Jimmy realizes that if the two men learn of his survival, they would murder anyone associated with him and takes up the alias Conan Edogawa. Hiroshi Agasa places Jimmy in the care of his childhood friend and love Rachel Moore, and her father Richard Moore. Jimmy then adapts to his daily life as Conan and helps Richard solve cases while keeping his identity a secret from others. During the course of the series, Conan learns that Gin and Vodka are part of a mysterious criminal syndicate called the Black Organization and thus begins his quest to take down the Organization. Throughout the series, Conan interacts and befriends many characters with the most notable being: The Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the local police in Conan's prefecture; The Junior Detective League, a group of children who solves mysteries for their clients; The FBI and Harley Hartwell, a high school detective in Osaka who knows of his true identity.

The manga became licensed by Viz Media while the animation was licensed by Funimation Entertainment. The two companies attempted to Americanize the character names with both companies using different names for the same characters on several occasions. The list follows the Viz transliteration names.

    My list of things I never pictured myself saying when I pictured myself as a parent has grown over the years.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    I make it a kind of pious rule to go to every funeral to which I am invited, both as I wish to pay a proper respect to the dead, unless their characters have been bad, and as I would wish to have the funeral of my own near relations or of myself well attended.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    Alas for the cripple Practice when it seeks to come up with the bird Theory, which flies before it. Try your design on the best school. The scholars are of all ages and temperaments and capacities. It is difficult to class them, some are too young, some are slow, some perverse. Each requires so much consideration, that the morning hope of the teacher, of a day of love and progress, is often closed at evening by despair.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The attention of those who frequent the camp-meetings at Eastham is said to be divided between the preaching of the Methodists and the preaching of the billows on the back side of the Cape, for they all stream over here in the course of their stay. I trust that in this case the loudest voice carries it. With what effect may we suppose the ocean to say, “My hearers!” to the multitude on the bank. On that side some John N. Maffit; on this, the Reverend Poluphloisboios Thalassa.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a list of mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.
    Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)
