Episode Comparisons

I’m sure if any of you have seen a dub/sub comparison website like DBZ Uncensored or Dogasu’s Backpack, you’ll know what to expect from the articles below. This is a guide to the changes made in FUNimation Entertainment’s American version of Detective Conan, otherwise known as Case Closed. Despite being an “uncut” FUNimation dub, that doesn’t entirely protect the series from major script rewrites and the like. Rarely will visual edits from the Cartoon Network television airings be covered, as the home video releases preserve almost all of the original Japanese footage. Whenever there is an exception and an edit from the Cartoon Network airing does appear, I will note it either in the episode’s comparison or in the Home Video Guide.

In addition to script comparisons, I also provide original airdates, supplemental information, manga/anime comparisons, the names of each individual Japanese/American script writer and director, image comparisons when necessary, and my personal thoughts on each episode for additional context. Enjoy!
