"Okay, I've seen a lot of stores and websites advertising Deadly Illusions as Case Closed vol. 2. It isn't. It's actually volume 1 of the fourth series and starts at episode 53 "The Mist Goblin Murder, part 1". For some reason, Funimation seems to be releasing seasons 1 and 4 simultaneously. Yeah, wierd, huh? Anyway, the series is about a 17-year-old genius detective named Jimmy Kudo. Because of an experimental poison slipped to him by some mysterious men in black, he is shrunk into the size of a second grader. To hide the fact that he lived from the bad guys, he poses as Conan Edogawa, only letting his neighbor, Dr. Agasa know the truth (and getting a lot of cool gadgets from the good doctor in the process). There is supense in every episode (it is a mystery series, after all), humor (in the form of the bumbling detective Richard Moore, whom Conan/Jimmy uses to track down clues leading to the Men in Black), and some romance (in Jimmy's now frustrated crush on Richard's daughter, Rachael). I highly recommend the entire series to anyone who's a fan of animes like Lupin III, or a fan of mysteries like Sherlock Holmes."

"I was really glad I picked up this DVD. ^^; I like how they're releasing the episodes now, since they took Case Closed/Detective Conan off Adult Swim so it's nice to see the new episodes.
These were good episodes, and I especially liked the Mist Goblin ones. ^^; I'm a sucker for any Jimmy/Rachel (Shinichi/Ran) moments. The 3rd episode really got me thinking. This is a great series if you love to solve mysteries and like some romance. ;) It usually always keeps me thinking, and some of the ways the murder takes place are awfully bizarre. I especially like how they're translating the Japanese songs into English. It's interesting to hear, and I actually prefer the English songs sometimes over the Japanese. ^^' If you're a fan, go ahead and pick up this DVD, it's got some good episodes and new songs."
