The first place is “Shinichi Kudo / Kaito Kid” by Detective Conan. It is a longevity program that has been broadcast since 1996 and plays the main character after junior high school in a national animation made into many movies. Conan Edogawa, played by Minami Takayama, appears as the main character in most parts of the anime. Still, Shinichi Kudo, who has not transformed into Conan in flashback scenes, may appear. In addition, the phantom thief Kid, who has two appearances, Shinichi Kudo and Uri, is depicted as a rival of Conan Edogawa.
