The Detective Conan (French : Détective Conan) manga is published in France by Kana and the anime was first dubbed in 2004. It has been broadcast on Cartoon Network, France 3, Mangas, NT1 and AB1.

In the French version of Detective Conan, almost all of the characters have the same name. A notable exception would be Megure, who is referred to as Maigret in the manga. As of October 2019, the manga has reached Volume 96. The anime is licensed up to Episode 214, but only 172 episodes have been broadcast, also from episode 761 are legally available to watch in Japanese with French subtitles. The first five movies have been dub to French by Kazé.


Detective Conan made its French anime debut on Cartoon Network on January 4, 2004, where only the first season was dubbed. On January 3, 2005, the show stated to air to the general public on France 3's afternoon show, France Truc. The show quickly became a hit among young people as well as teenagers, scoring over 40% of the audience. Following the positive critical acclaim from the public, AB Studio went on to dub three more seasons to add variety to the original 30 episodes. The success of the series, however, was short lived, as concerned parents complained of the show's frequently depicted violence and gore. The show was pulled out of France 3 the following year.

Following the fans' demand to see Detective Conan back on TV, Cartoon Network announced that it would bring back the show in August 2006, along with at least fifty new episodes where Ai Haibara would finally be introduced in the French anime. After March 24, 2008 the channel Mangas show 30 episodes with the Japanese master. The episodes were not released in order, which is why many of the 214 episodes never aired.

J-One bought Conan in February 2015, and began broadcasting the episodes on TV in Japanese with French subtitles on the 6th of February, with episode 761.

In September 2018, French anime editor Blackbox announced the upcoming release of a Detective Conan box-set, complete with the twenty-two first movies and two TV Specials (The Disappearance of Conan Edogawa: The Worst Two Days in History and Episode One: The Great Detective Turned Small).

There are two intros used for the anime in France. The first one is a dubbed version of Japanese, and the second one is a dubbed version of the third intro. However, the lyrics of these songs do not relate to their original counterparts, opting for different lyrics instead.
