Continuity

From Detective Conan Wiki


Continuity is a work in progress. This page is a work in progress. Please consider filling in the missing pieces if you are able.


Continuity is a concept in fiction used for directly referring to previous stories, establishing for them to be "in the past" of the current story containing the reference to it and thus strengthening the continuity between both or even creating one in the first place by connecting both plots. This is not the same as the Canon, even though establishing continuity helps define elements of the series that are part of the Canon. This can be done by means of a direct Continuity Nod or a Call-back.

The Manga, Anime, Movies, Games and other spin-off material aren't set in the same continuity despite sharing and adapting some of the same stories and influencing each other now and then in certain details. This is emphasized by the separation below.

  • The flashback story has to be set at least one month before the frame story and before Detective Conan as a whole, since Ginzo Nakamori is still working at Minato Police Department, while working at the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department under Shintaro Chaki "for at least one month" in Kaitou Kid and the Black Star (Detective Conan Manga, 156-159) and stays there in future chapters. It also has to be sometime between the Aquarium Murder Case (Detective Conan Manga, Files 882-884) and Prologue - Roller Coaster Murder Case (Detective Conan Manga, File 1), since Tropical Land wasn't opened yet in the former, while Kaito Kuroba and Aoko Nakamori already visited it in the meantime, and Shinichi isn't shrunken yet, which happens to him in the latter.

Golden Eye (MK Manga: 27-28)[edit]

  • This story also happens during a night on Friday the 13th, which could mean that it's happening concurrently to the night of Friday the 13th in the Foreign Suspect Case (Detective Conan Manga, 605-609), which would also fit the previous chronological info and the following story and the fact that all of these chapters were released relatively close together in real time. It would also imply that at least Files 303-604 of Detective Conan have happened in the meantime between Golden Eye and this story.
  • The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department gets introduced and becomes a recurring setting.
  • To Would You Grow Up (MK Manga: 10): Inspector Ginzo Nakamori chained the glass case in mid-air so Kaitou Kid is unable to hide in the display case, with Kaito Kuroba remembering that he did this several times before - like in that chapter from Magic Kaito Volume 2, for instance.

Love on the Ski Slope on Christmas Eve (MK Special: 6)[edit]
