Alrighty, so what are peoples thoughts on this series? (If there is anyone out there caught up, other than me).
So until I know there are people who watch it, I won't say anything and let someone choose what we talk about.
Note, I am caught up on the manga and anime, so if people have questions about the series, feel free to ask me.
I haven't seen any of the Detective Conan. I don't think I will be watching 700+ episodes (that is the number you've mentioned, right?) of the original series, not yet at least - it is just a little too intimidating undertaking =0 But I'd like to see something, so I am thinking, would it be better to watch first few episodes or jump into a movie. What would you suggest?
If you skip the filler episodes, it cuts the anime in half. I do recommend the movies, they are all great. So if you want to watch those first, go for it. I do recommend watching it in subbed because the dubbed version changes the names of people and places to be Americanized. Plus, dubbed only has 6 of the 18 movies (actually there are side movies too) and 130 dubbed episodes (which equals out to only the first 123 episodes in subbed).
Alright, that is good news. Usually with movies that come along with TV series it is a game of chance, you can get good ones, like with Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro or mediocre ones like with Bleach movies and such. Since from what I've heard Detective Conan is kinda episodic, I thought they should be able to have good side stories, hence make interesting movies.
So do I start with Detective Conan Movie 01: The Timed Skyscraper? =)
