The anime and manga series Case Closed, known as Meitantei Conan (名探偵 コナン?, Detective Conan) in Japan, features an extensive cast of characters created by Gosho Aoyama. The series takes place in Modern day Japan and follows a gifted amateur detective named Jimmy Kudo where he solves cases in an episodic formula to a Whodunit fashion with the occasional Inverted detective story.
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 whilst 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.
