Since 1994, Gosho Aoyama's Case Closed series has been entertaining its readers through multiple formats of media. First and foremost, his manga influence and fanbase has allowed the series to publish 1000 chapters and continues to publish chapters today!
As for anime, the franchise has had its own series, Case Closed, and over 20 films to create a sprawling anime film franchise that continues to release new installments. A tradition that the films tend to follow is that there is typically a manga adaption that tells the story of the movie in printed form.
One of the highest-grossing films in the series has been Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire and released back in 2019. According to a reveal from Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday S, the anime will be getting its own manga adaption by Yutaka Abe and Jirō Maruden!
