We're back to anime this week as we tackle the mega-hit from Japan that failed to catch on in America, Case Closed. Known as Detective Conan in its home country, this long, long, long-running series about a teenage master detective trapped in a boy's body hit Adult Swim in the summer of 2004, but its mix of kiddie antics and extremely dark subject matter mostly confused an audience tuning in for the network's typical stoner humor. But some recent attention from Conan O'Brien just might increase Case Closed awareness as the show continues into its 23rd season in Japan... maybe. Special guests Nick and Chris Daniel join us to help unravel the enigma of why Conan's many mysteries are just so fun.
