Crunchyroll and TMS Entertainment announced that Crunchyroll will begin streaming the first season of the Case Closed (Detective Conan) anime on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. EDT in North America, Central America, South America, Europe (except French- and German-speaking countries), Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Although both companies list the first season as episodes 1-42, Crunchyroll‘s streaming service is listing that the first 43 episodes will stream, with the two-part episodes 11-12 being considered as a single episode. The anime will stream with subtitles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, and Arabic.
Crunchyroll began streaming new episodes of the series in October 2014, starting with episode 754.
Detective Conan has been running since 1994. The manga has spawned an ongoing television anime series and a yearly anime film series. Detective Conan: Fist of Blue Sapphire, the franchise‘s 23rd film, opened in Japan in April 2019, and it is the seventh consecutive Detective Conan film to become the highest-grossing film in the franchise. Meitantei Conan: Hiiro no Dangan (Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet), the franchise‘s 24th film, will open in April 2021, delayed from its original date of April 17, 2020 due to concerns about the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
