Are we that stupid that we can't watch some easy kid mysteries?

There's at least half a dozen new cop shows per season in burgerville. Conan doesn't stand a chance.

yep
case in point: this empty thread

In a saturated genre. There's no reason to pick conan over more complex, adult or edgy mysteries.
>>
Too violent for kids. Too kiddy for adults.

>>174116773
Pretty much

>>174114496
This show has been running for ages now. My mother used to watch it as a kid, and now several decades later and it's still running.

They should have just ended it a long time ago, that way we would at least get some closure.

>>174114496
they couldn't even get the name rights, plus they did 80's style americanization of the characters' names. it was doa

Why Americans call him Jimmy?
His name is Shinichi.
>>
>>174117791
The name change was something about having to avoid confusion between "Detective Conan" and "Conan The Barbarian".
Even though the name Conan is taken from Conan Doyle (author of Sherlock Holmes).
>>
>>174118053
Detective Conan The Barbarian.
How does he solve the mysteries?
>>
>>174118033
Better yet, in the dub Jimmy and co were Canadians
>>
>>174118265
No that was Harley and co. Osaka was changed to Canada.

>>174118053
Supposedly it was due to copyright concerns. Which were baseless. Especially years later when Discotek put out the Lupin vs. Conan stuff without a problem.
>>
>>174114496
We have British television detective shows to fill that role already, we don't need more.

Scooby Doo was always better.

I can't take this show seriously. 3/4 of the member of the black organization are actually spies working for police or cia/fbi...or they don't care about anything at all. Vermouth knows exactly who Conan is, yet she says nothing and keeps it for herself. Vodka is obviously an idiot. Gin is the only real member that remains besides Korn and Chianti. The rest are spies.

Vodka is Anokata btw. The author just needs to give in.

Gin is all that the organization needs.
>>
>>174122615
Just have the antidote have a said effect that causes a Conan clone to appear. Shinichi is normal but Conan remains.
>>
>>174122615
Haibara is best girl.
No doubt. She is part of the main plot and has real interactions with Conan throughout the series.
She's funny and cute while Ran is just a generic grrl power character. Childhood love my ass.
But since Detective Conan will have a "happy end" ConanxRan is already confirmed

It's surprising any 'Murricans watched it at all.

All it takes is a bad dub or even simply a slow start/a long break or pause at some point to put the brakes on a long running series in North America

One Piece might be the biggest example of it

Yes there is. Conan is better than all of those.

Get rid of the filler and conan is a top tier mystery.
>>
>>174134451
So... just read the manga?
>>
>>174114496
Detective and crime fiction are very popular genres in the US, it's just that there is a lot of it to choose from, so Conan really didn't have a niche it could fill. Most people watching anime were watching it because what they were after (non-comedic animation not exclusively oriented to children) didn't have a western counterpart. Conan just had no place for it so it floundered.
>>
>>174134703
It floundered because it had an awful dub that ended right before shit got really good and never picked it up again.
>>
>>174116480
Because why follow something cringey when you can go with something comfy?
>>
>>174135236
Conan can't really thrive on plot though. If people didn't react well to the episodic cases the show would never stay alive.

>500 a year
that can't be right anon. That would mean every place he went, every day, someone died. Park? murder, Restaurant? murder, Vacation? murder. Even then that would only land at 375 a year
>>
>>174137088
Don't forget the episodes that span a few days in universe. Their version of year probably has over a thousand days.
>>
>>174114496
It's a kids show that played in an adult time slot. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why it failed.
>>
>>174134703
>>174135236
Plenty of shows had worse dubs and proper audience (children) would not care about an overly westernized English dub in a world where Pokemon or Yugioh could do fine. But they didn't market it and they played it on adult swim. As a kid who watched it when it aired and tried to show it to people, every friend I showed it to liked it, but it was hard to keep up with and nobody knew about it.
>>
>>174114496

They aired it on some obscure as fuck channel when I was a kid, me and my sister would get up at 6am to watch it.Its for kids, but none of the kids channels would pick it up.
>>
Sera is an overrated smelly boy.

>>174139245
I noted your downvote. But can you actually provide some discussion?
>>
>>174139191
It's still a kids show and it needs kids to survive. This is just a fact.
>>
>>174140363
>It's still a kids show
Conan was never a kids show.
Conan is a family show.
>>
>>174128637
It's only been 293 cases in the manga. That can fit in under a year.
>>
>>174140530
Which means you need kids to watch it. It's a show that relies on appealing to kids and being a brand they recognize. But fine, it's a "family" show, because apparently being a kid's show is an insult. Do full families traditionally get together at 1 am to watch things? (though that simpsons episode was eerily close) Just look at >>174138792 both of us had to go well out of our way to watch it. And that's only if we knew about it, because outside of the time block I don't remember Conan being in commercials. But in Germany, they had a softened version played in an anime block with other anime that kids watched and it lasted into the 300s and still gets movie dubs.
>>
>>174140832
>It's a show that relies on appealing to kids and being a brand they recognize
No it really isn't.
Family show means its a show the entire family can watch and enjoy.
It means it appeals to both kids AND adults.
>>
>>174140661
The cases were clearly happening in different days and a few took multiple days so the timeline is fucked just like Pokemon.
>>
>>174140918
Jesus this is sad, okay you're a big boy who doesn't watch a show for kids but a show for families. That's different because instead of marketing itself to kids and makes money from kids it markets itself to kids and makes money from kids. You're just being a bitch and arguing because you don't wanna feel bad for watching a kids show. It's a kids show, I've talked to Japanese people about the fucking show, it's for kids. It's considered even more for kids than other kids shows like Naruto.
>but adults went to movies
Adults go to kids movies all the time, especially now. Nobody cares if you see something for kids. Conan is a product for 6-12 year olds and sold in a magazine for 6-12 year olds and if you still like it, that's okay. That doesn't make it bad, that doesn't make you bad, that doesn't make anyone in the thread bad that you like a thing made for kids. Superhero movies make billions of dollars every few months, those movies are for kids. And NONE of that matters, because it has NOTHING to do with my point that Conan wouldn't work in a fucking 1 am time slot, because family shows aren't showed at 1 am. So shut the fuck up about your insecurities over watching a kids show. I'm in the thread too you whiny asshole, I'm clearly fine with it being for kids.
