"What happens when a teen genius is shrunk into a kid? Well, take a look, because that's what happened to me. But even though I'm small, I'm still solving crimes, and losing my physique has only sharpened my mind. With my keen eye I'll expose each lie until one truth prevails."
Episode 66, 68-69, 73, 77, 82, 84-85, 90-92, 95, 99, 101[edit]

("While there's persons involved in the current crimes there won't be any irresolute case.")

Episodes 78, 81-83, 85-89, 91-92[edit]
"La maneta d'un rellotge que va girant, un estel fugaç, el cor fred de la societat moderna. Les meves deduccions són la seva medecina."

("The hand of a watch that is spinning, a shooting star, the cold heart of modern society. My deductions are their medicine.")


Catalan (Valencia)[edit]

"Per molts crims que es cometen, no hi ha cas impossible de resoldre"

("For many crimes that commit, there's no impossible case to resolve")



"O segundeiro dun reloxo... unha estrela fugaz.... Resolver enigmas compensa"

("The hand of a watch... a shooting star... Solve enigmas compensate")



Episode 53-63[edit]
"Selama Kejahatan Modern Melibatkan Orang, Tidak ada Misteri Terpecahkan!"

"Por muchos crímenes que se cometan en estos tiempos que corren ningún caso es imposible de resolver."

("For many crimes that will commit in that current times there's no impossible case to resolve.")

"La segunda manecilla de un reloj avanza, un cometa pasa, los corazones rotos de la sociedad moderna."

"Thám tử trung học lừng danh Kudo Shinichi bị một tổ chức áo đen cho uống thuốc độc khiến cơ thể teo nhỏ và trở thành Edogawa Conan! Mặc dù thân thể bị teo nhỏ, nhưng với trí tuệ của thám tử lừng danh 17 tuổi! Mình sẽ tiếp tục phá được nhiều vụ án mà người lớn phải đau đầu suy nghĩ!"

("Famous high school detective Shinichi Kudo was forced to take a poison by a black organization that shrunk his body and became Conan Edogawa! Although my body has turned small, but with the intellect of a famous 17-year-old detective! I will continue to solve many cases that even adults had a hard time to think!")


International version[edit]

Just like the international version of the episodes that use "Mune ga Dokidoki" as the opening, the song starts over from the beginning after Conan's monologue, causing some synching errors and finishing earlier than the Japanese version.

FUNimation version[edit]

FUNimation adapted their own version of this song for the English release of the show entitled "Mystery". Although the Japanese version appears on their DVDs, the FUNimation version is the longer cut like the international versions.
