1. Favorite Manga goes to Oguri [Rating: 8/10]
I have to say, hearing the idea didn't sound all exciting because the manga form was awesome that I didn't know what they would do to make this one different. Then finally watching it, I did quite enjoy the story. Before Shinichi became Conan is a nice plan of action, it gets Aoyama away from the constant story with Conan and his identity. Overall it was worth the watch, Oguri Shun is still an awesome actor, and now I can kinda picture him as Shinichi, though I thoought that Kurokawa is a little young to be playing Ran, and Iwase didn't fit. Though I still think Kurowkawa is a very talented rising actress and she did well to try to portray Ran as best as possible.

I applaude this drama!

2. Kindaichi is better [Rating: 7/10]
Kindaichi live action is much better than conan, i like all version of kindaichi (Matsu-Jun, Domoto Tsuyoshi and Kame). The actors in conan is horrible, not talking about their acting but their character. Only Jinnai Takanori is perfect fit as Kogoro Mori!!

3. Ok! [Rating: 6/10]
This series was ok. I think Oguri Shun is a great actor but he is a little too old for this role.

I love this! Although it wasn't as interesting as the 2nd installment, but I still really enjoyed it! Shun was great as Shinichi! I thought he was really in-character & he's so hot! =D I laughed at those comments suggesting that he "can't act"! If Shun "can't act", then neither could MOST other japanese actors! lol! =P
And I don't understand why so many ppl don't like the lead actress, I like Tomoka, yes she's a bit too young for the role and she isn't really "fit" enough, but I still think she did the best she could & I thought she was actually quite good, she's cute too. I do see some chemistry between her and Shun, if not on-screen, then it's off-screen...I've seen the press con & some of the making of part 2 & they both seemed to have gotten on pretty well off-screen. I do like them together =)
Overall, this is a really good adaption (although part 2 was slightly better).

I'm a fan of the anime series so of course I'll watch the this one. Much to my disappointment. I like both Oguri and Tomokawa for their respective roles especially Jinnai Takanori who really fit the role of Mori Kogore. But the only letdown was the case. It was so plain and simple. I easily spotted the killer the moment it appeared.

2nd Special: I give it a 9. This is much more exciting and interesting than the first one. But the only disappointment would be the child portraying Conan. Wasnt there anyone else to play this role?
3. Comments by Jeanxi [Rating: 4/10]
This really would have a much lower rating if it wasn't for the fact that it is a Conan movie. Sadly, I don't think any main character in this drama special can act (particularly Oguri Shun), which contributed to the entire downfall of the drama. The story on the whole wasn't too bad, though I guess the whole tone and the speed of plot progression is more suitable for a manga than for a drama.

Oguri Shun did a really well presentation of Kudo Shinichi. Dunno who's the girl who played Ran but she potrayed the emotionally insecure Ran perfectly. Although I like Mayuko san, I think Sonoko's character should be exaggerated a wee bit more like in the manga. And I think there was more chemistry between Shun and Mayuko than with him and the actress who played Ran.

AMAZING!! i mean, its detective conan!! what is there really to say??
i think all the actors perfectly portrayed their characters according to the anime!! so if you're looking for a realistic take on the anime, then dont watch this. Mouri acts EXACTLY as he does in the anime, down to the insane facial expressions, and its super comical!! i loved every minute of it!
6. Comments by joychin [Rating: 10/10]
I love detective stories XD. Shun really looks like in the manga. I always wonder how they actually manage to figure out a crime and solve it....i mean,there are SO many detective/'supernatural' dramas like trick 1,2,3,special ,kindaichi 1,2,3,special 1,special 2, special 3, Liar game, Furuhata Chugakusei and now conan.
7. Comments by outlaws0025 [Rating: 8/10]
Very nice short movie (or SP or whatever it is). I have never read or seen Conan before, so I had no idea what to expect. All I wanted was a good crime story with a script almost as good as Galileo or TRICK... and that's what I got!
TRICK and Galileo are still my favorite detective series, but this is pretty good too.
8. Comments by Patazilla [Rating: ?/10]
I you like Detective Conan this definitely is a really nice special! It is just like the anime series, with all the Conan-stereotypes in it. |3 And even if you are not interested in Conan or don't know anything about the manga/anime, it is worth watching as all the actors do a great job and the story is good, too.
9. Comments by Dr_Pain [Rating: 8/10]
I never liked Conan as Manga/Anime but again Shun made me watching it. Shun as Shinichi? Might be interesting I thought and I wasn't disappointed at all :D
just Ran was a little bit annoying as usual.
but I loved the 1Litre dadday actor for playing Kogoro. This role really suited him ^^
10. Comments by occultangle [Rating: 6/10]
I really don't have any qualifications to judge this as I have never read the manga, nor watched the anime. I only watched it because I am a fan of Kurokawa Tomoka. Doesn't seem too bad, but the second special is pretty stupid.
11. Comments by Kirari Ililah [Rating: 8/10]
This was one of my favorite mangas growing up. At first, I wasn't sure if Oguri was the right fit, but then I got used to him and he did quite well. Kurokawa is kind of young to play Ran, but she did do a good job too.
12. Comments by japanezejade [Rating: 10/10]
I was surprised when I watched it. Shun Oguri was Shinichi Kudo! But, so sad it was only a one episode special.. You know, Conan became a kid. But, Shun was definitely awesome. He is so cute. =)
13. Comments by marspeach [Rating: 6/10]
Okay cheesey mystery special. Seemed to be clearly made for fans of the Conan series. Shun is also getting too old to play high school students, no matter how hot he is.

Disappointing, I used to be a huge Detective Conan fan ever since I was a child, and I was kind of dispointed to see my hero in live action lol
15. Comments by lesamouraifou [Rating: 5/10]
not bad at all, but I'm not a fan of detective conan..
I didn't know a lot of actors without oguri shun. I think he didn't play well there!!

a nice case showing Conan before being poison and turned into a kid. This is the last case he solved before he turned into a kid.

I was quite disappointed, because Shun's dramas were ctually good most of the times, but this one didn't surprise me at all
18. Comments by MyDyingDoom [Rating: 8/10]
The storyline is quite simple, and the cast, none of them seemed to be good expect Oguri Shun, cool as always!

1.) The First Dorama I watched. Because of Oguri Shun (Kudo Shinichi) I started to watch other Doramas.

Interesting. Nice story and cast. Not really funny, but the story is intriguing.
26. Comments by sw33t_laydee [Rating: 8/10]
It was really good. What i liked most about it was it was really unpredictable
27. Comments by Megumi_Nagase [Rating: 8/10]
It's an entertaining SP, but not a master piece, so i would rate 8.

it was alright..
i would recommend it if u like short ass stuff

Oguri Shun is good but the storyline could be more interesting.
