Detective Conan Manga Gets Live-Action TV Series 1st live-action series after 3 specials; Junpei Mizobata, Shiori Kutsuna return.
This year's 26th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that a live-action television series adaptation of Gosho Aoyama's Detective Conan manga has been green-lit. The series will premiere on July 7 at 11:58 p.m. on YTV, NTV, and their affiliates. The original manga follows a brilliant detective trapped in a child's body, but the live-action spinoffs have been set before the manga, when the title character was still a teenager.
There was already a live-action television special in April, as well as two previous specials with actor Shun Oguri (Hana Yori Dango, Hana-Kimi) in 2006 and 2007. However, the new project will be the first live-action series. The new series will retain the same staff and cast as the third live-action special, including Junpei Mizobata (Hana-Kimi, 81diver, Shibatora, High School Debut) in the title role and Shiori Kutsuna (Mei-chan no Shitsuji, Beck, Gota Keshi: Jidan Kōshōnin Shirai Torajirō) as the heroine Ran.
Viz Media will publish the 39th manga volume under the title Case Closed in North America in July. Funimation released DVDs for the television anime adaptation and some of the anime films. original source
