Is It Any Good?

This dark comedy series manages to still be funny on its own despite being a spin- off. That said, Detective Conan: The Culprit Hanzawa is still a show that's best for fans of the popular Detective Conan series. There are a lot of references and guest character appearances from the main series that will please fans. It's a pleasant surprise that it still manages to stand on its own by actually being funny without needing any prior knowledge of the main series.

The story is goofy and never takes itself too seriously despite its dark content. Although he tries his best to follow his twisted dream, Hanzawa is inept, goofy, cowardly, and always manages to botch every situation he finds himself in. He often gets swallowed up by the big city and taken advantage of by the more experienced and serious criminals, but it's usually pretty funny to laugh at his misfortunes. Overall, this is a silly short series that anyone can watch for some sly fun and quick laughs. But you'll probably find it more enjoyable if you're already a fan of the main Detective Conan series.
