100% Tantei Monogatari
100% Tantei Monogatari (１００％探偵物語 100% Tantei Monogatari) ("100% Detective Tale" or "100% Detective Story") is a one shot Manga volume from 1990 written and drawn by Yutaka Abe and Gosho Aoyama. It is a detective story for young readers containing several chapters published from 1986 to 1987 in the magazine Missy Comics (ミッシィコミックス Misshii Komikkusu) as well as two older short stories, which revolve around the young high school detective Momoko Aoyama, who solves smaller, episodic cases since she took over her father's detective agency. She is assisted Hitoshi Yamanaka, who apparently knew her father.
Yutaka Abe - who is a former mentor and current assistant of Gosho Aoyama - received support from the latter for the work on this volume, since Gosho was still Yutaka's assistant at the time.  This collaboration is also reflected in Momoko attending Ekoda High School and attending the same class - the 2-B - as Kaito Kuroba and Aoko Nakamori, who both have a multi-page appearance in the third chapter of this series.
The complete volume is legally readable on the Mangaz website (formerly known as J-Comi) by Ken Akamatsu (a mangaka famous for his works like Love Hina and Magister Negi Magi), but only in Japanese.

- Momoko Aoyama is named both after Gosho Aoyama himself and after his favorite idol at the time, Momoko Kikuchi. This was a reaction by Yutaka Abe in return to Gosho's one-shot Chotto Mattete, in which the protagonists are named Yutaka Takai and Mamiko Abe. “Yutaka” and “Abe” came from Yutaka Abe's own name, while the parts of the name “Takai” and “Mamiko” came from Yutaka's then favorite idol Mamiko Takai.
- There is said to be at least one animated short film based on the Manga - directed by Gosho Aoyama and with Yutaka Abe in charge of animation. Copies of it were sent to subscribers of Weekly Shounen Sunday as a present.
Settings introduced in this series:
- Unknown location
- Mansion of the landlady from chapter 6
Mansion from chapter 6
The mansion is modeled after the Palais du Luxembourg, in real life to be found at Rue de Vaugirard 15 in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. It also served as the model for the Ohshima Art Museum in chapter 17 of Magic Kaito and the Kurogane residence in Yaiba.
- Kaito Kuroba and Aoko Nakamori briefly appear in chapter 3. This meeting was returned in chapter 6 of their own series: Momoko Aoyama is one of the girls who gave Kaito some Valentine's chocolate and was drawn by Yutaka Abe himself. She is also mentioned in the fourth episode of the Magic Kaito: Kid the Phantom Thief Specials, which is based on that chapter. Ekoda High School, which originated in this series, was taken over in Magic Kaito as one of the main settings, too.
- Gosho Aoyama also confirmed on the bonus page of 100% Tantei Monogatari that he intended to have a battle between Momoko Aoyama and Kaitou Kid once, but for reasons unknown, it never worked out.

An alumni manga artist, Abu Yukata-san(sic) (Bear-chan's Christmas, Detective Conan Special Edition, etc.) was there. I went to be an assistant at Abu-san's work place, and he said, “Do you want to draw manga for real”? That's where it started.
