In addition, FUNimation also sent out the following press release:

Today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific, in conjunction with a panel at Anime Expo 2003, FUNimation Productions, LTD. announced that it has acquired the rights to mega-hit series from Japan, Detective Conan.

Detective Conan is the story about a detective named Shinichi Kudo. He is still in high school but he is a crime-solving genius. Shinichi's dream of becoming the best detective in the world takes a step in the wrong direction when a pair of villains unwittingly transform the teen back to his childhood size. Not wanting his best friend, Ran, to know the truth, Shinichi adopts the persona of Detective Conan, a pint-sized detective who must find a way to solve crimes the police can't seem to figure out all the while searching for clues to the men that put him in this form!

FUNimation has also acquired the rights to the first two Detective Conan movies "The Time Bombed Skyscraper" and "The Fourteenth Target." Home video release dates are tentatively scheduled for late Spring 2004.
