Shinichi and Ran


Relationship analysis

Shinichi and Ran

Ran Mouri and Shinichi Kudo are childhood friends and each other's canonical love interest. They have been friends and playmates since kindergarten.[1] Their friendship has received some censure from Ran’s mother, Eri Kisaki, when Shinichi would convince Ran to do things that could be considered dangerous, such as walking to and from their elementary school after dark[1]. They are very close to each other: even as students in their second year of high school, they address each other by first names without any honorific. Ran is occasionally annoyed by Shinichi's obsession with Holmes, and Shinichi is a bit disturbed by Ran's ability to crack concrete when she's unhappy,[2] but they generally get along well. Prior to the storyline beginning, both seem to have been clueless about each other's feelings. However, when Ran first meets Conan (whom she's unaware is really Shinichi), she confesses that despite his flaws, she really likes Shinichi—which causes him to blush and nearly confess his real identity despite his resolution to hide it.[2] Shinichi and Ran also appear to share a close empathic link due to their strong feelings for each other, making them almost impossibly aware of when the other is in extreme danger, and often able to sense the other's worried thoughts.[3]

Shinichi Said " I don't want to be a novelist, I want to be a detective, to be Heisei Sherlock Holmes " he told to Ran with confidence. (scene from Episode one.)

Many of Ran and Shinichi/Conan's friends tease them about their relationship. Sonoko always reminds Ran about her 'boyfriend' or 'husband' whenever they're together. Haibara always teases Conan about how he cannot properly expresses his feelings, and about how much he likes Ran, and often makes cynical remarks about relationships not lasting, but will tease and say there are rare exceptions with a sly glance towards Conan. Heiji and Kazuha are very supportive of their relationship, Kazuha encourages Ran to confess, and Heiji teases Conan. Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, and Genta sometimes tease Conan about his affection and interest towards Ran. Even Kaitou Kid teases Conan about his 'girlfriend' and Masumi Sera towards Ran about her 'boyfriend'. Eisuke Hondou asks Conan/Shinichi to take care of Ran. Additionally Shinichi/Conan's parents have teased him on multiple occasions about his relationship with Ran. When Ran and Shinichi/Conan are teased about their relationship, they always deny being in a relationship and are shown blushing after that.

Conan currently lives with Ran and her father, Kogoro Mouri, who is a private detective. Ran treats Conan like a little brother, including holding his hand often or hugging him, once sleeping in the same bed, and once even dragging him into a hot spring bath together (the mere memory of it gives Conan a nosebleed and a healthy fear of Ran ever discovering his true identity).[4] Conan is very protective of Ran and is jealous of her receiving any attention from other guys, going so far as to admit to Eisuke Hondou that he is Shinichi in order to forbid Eisuke from asking Ran out (and eventually to go to America with him).[5]

Non-canonically, Shinichi has confessed to Ran in the 4th movie 'Captured In Her Eyes', which she mistook as his attempt to get her memory back due to him unknowingly using the same words Kogoro used to propose to Eri ("Because I love you. More than anyone else in this world.") while Ran confessed she likes him in the 8th movie: Magician of The Silver Sky, but later thinks she was talking to Kaito Kid in disguise. Canonically, Shinichi nearly confessed to her during the Desperate Revival arc, where it was implied that if he hadn't been interrupted by a murder case and then reverting to Conan, he would have proposed.[6] Additionally, during the visit to London, Shinichi finally revealed his feelings to Ran; while she didn't explicitly respond in kind, Shinichi figured out her feelings by the way she prompted his own confession.[7] As for Ran, she confessed her feelings towards Shinichi during the Crimson School Trip arc, when he asked Ran about her thoughts of his confession in London.

Shinichi continues to hide his identity from Ran because if the Black Organization discovers Conan's true identity, anyone connected to Conan or Shinichi would likely be killed to maintain the Black Organization's secrecy.[8] Ran has nearly figured out that Conan is Shinichi several times in the series, but each time Conan manages to create an alibi that she'll accept, since Ran seems to prefer that Conan not be Shinichi.[9] Ran would not be in danger just for knowing the truth, but as has been seen in the series Ran's behavior toward Conan changes the more suspicious she is about whether he is Shinichi.[10] If it were confirmed, one slip could be enough to tip off the organization, and Conan will keep up the charade rather than put her in danger that way, no matter how much he wants to tell her. However, he still remains in contact with her over the phone using the Voice-Changing Bowtie, despite the inherent dangers of staying in contact.[11]

Shinichi started liking Ran since he was little[12]. Ran realized her feelings for Shinichi when she was about 15 years old, after their case in New York[13].

In earlier stories, she would become violently suspicious if she thought Shinichi was philandering, although more recently his confessions (in the "Holmes' Revelation" Arc) have led her to trust his intentions.

  • Shinichi stumbles out of the room after seeing the first victim since his antidote is wearing off for the day. Ran worriedly asks him if he's okay and that she can go get him some cold medicine but Shinichi snaps at her to stay away from him. He then softens, saying he just doesn't want her to get his cold. Secretly he thinks that he cannot let her see him transform back into Conan.

  • Shinichi grabs her arm and asks her how she feels about him, since she never explicitly gave her reply to his confession to her in London. In response, Ran grabs him by the tie and kisses Shinichi on the cheek and says happily, "That's my answer." Shinichi is dumbfounded, blinking at her and blushing furiously. Then he thinks, "You can't do that... not on the cheek" and he grabs both her shoulders and pulls her to him.
