According to O’Brien, Detective Conan debuted a year after his first late night show debuted. Also, he says sleuth is a grown man in a boy’s body—an idea he says that mirrors his own predicament.

Clearly.

If only there was another person who was connected to mysteries named Conan, then this could all be easily cleared up.
