Is It Any Good?

Detective Conan: Zero's Tea Time is primarily a fanservice show created for the fans of the main Detective Conan series. There are lots of references to events and characters from the main Detective Conan series in this spin-off that will be lost on new viewers which may impact how enjoyable the show is. That said, the story does provide enough information to follow Rei's daily activities which can be both exciting and charming. If you're already a fan of Detective Conan series, then you'll likely enjoy this. Otherwise, you might have trouble getting invested beyond enjoying its simple premise.
