Detective Conan: Police Academy Arc Wild Police Story (Meizzantei Conan Keisatsu Gakkō Hen Wild Police Story), the Detective Conan spin-off manga set about seven years before the beginning of the main story and still unreleased in Italy, by Gosho Aoyama and Takahiro Arai, will be adapted into an anime series.

The news was given in issues 36 and 37 of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine, which also announced that the Detective Conan manga is currently on hiatus but will return in the 46th issue of the magazine in October. Shogakukan instead will publish the 100th volume of the manga on October 18.

Detective Conan: manga and anime

Detective Conan is a manga written and drawn by Gōshō Aoyama, published in Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine since January 1994. In Italy it has been initially translated and published by Comic Art in 1998 and later by Star Comics from 2005 which also published Detective Conan Special Cases, a series of volumes containing short stories, which do not affect the plot of the main manga, published in Japan starting from 28 January 1997. In addition, Star Comics will launch on September 1st the new edition of the original manga whose cover is not yet available but which you can pre-order on Amazon.

The main series inspired an anime, broadcast in Japan since 1996 edited by the broadcasters TMS Entertainment (producer of the series), Nippon TV (NTV) and Yomiuri TV. In Italy, the anime debuted on Italia 1 on May 13, 2002, with 724 episodes or 776, as the longer episodes have been broken, and is now available on Crunchyroll.

The franchise also includes some films, which have been released annually in Japan since 1997, the latest of which, The Scarlet Bullet, was released in April this year, not to mention the crossover film with Lupine III, entitled Lupine III vs Detective Conan, released for TV in 2009 which was followed, in 2013, by a crossover for cinema, entitled Lupine the Third vs. Detective Conan - The movie.

Detective Conan Announces Spin-Off Anime

Detective Conan is reportedly preparing for a new spin-off anime! Gosho Aoyama's original manga series (which was originally licensed as 'Case Closed' for its initial English language release) has been running in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine since the early 1990s, and has sparked a huge multimedia franchise over the years since with successful TV anime, live-action, and theatrical adaptations. Now it seems like the franchise is getting ready to launch a new spin-off anime series that's adapting an already successful spin-off manga that ended its run late last year according to new reports.

According to a new report from @SugoiLITE on Twitter and many others, the Detective Conan spin-off, Police Academy Arc - Wild Police Story, will be getting an anime adaptation. Unfortunately due to the nature of the report, there are no more details as to the production staff, cast or potential release date for this new adaptation beyond its existence. It's yet to be officially confirmed by Shogakukan to be in the works, however, so take with a grain of salt.

Detective Conan: Police Academy Arc - Wild Police Story is an official prequel spin-off series overseen by original series creator Gosho Aoyama and illustrated by Takahiro Arai. It's a fairly short series that only ran between 2019 and 2020 with two collected volumes as of this writing, so if an anime does happen it'll either be a short TV series (or a TV anime with added original content) or potentially even a film).

It's set seven years in the past and follows Rei Furuya during his time at the police academy before he becomes the undercover detective that we meet in the main series. The 13 chapter spin-off series would be a perfect fit for a single limited series anime suited to taking on each of its arcs, but it seems we'll be finding out soon enough if Shogakukan confirms this is truly in the works. But what do you think?
