being in the same Universe... the appearance of Kid is just like a little
crossover to make the plot interesting, in my humble opinion. And I'd
totally agree with you that they own their individualities.(is there such a

Way too fantastic, isn't it?

with the Detective Conan Special Edition. You see, both of them are
Meitantei Conan shows, but both of are different... I'll repeat this again
then, and try to make it less confusing. In the Special Edition (Shinichi VS
Kid), Shinichi was trying to nab Kid at the clock tower and blah... In the
story of the Black Star(where Kid tried to steal the Black Star from the
Suzuki), Conan didn't seemed to know Kid at all, since he was eager to meet
him. And from the way he had tried to analyse Kid, it goes further to show
that he hasn't met him before. Which comes to the question of why they are
contradicting each other(the two plots.) Hope I don't make it sound too
