      Well, I don't think Aoyama has ever declared Magic Kaito and Meitantei Conan
      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

      Yup, that's a very logical reasoning. Which kinda explains why Magic Kaitou
      was only published until Book 3... sheez... I gues Aoyama kinda ran out of
      wonderful ideas, huh?

      Imagine someone disappearing out of thin air or rather get blown up, landing
      himself into hospital, all of which without revealing his secret identity.
      Way too fantastic, isn't it?

      But this still doesn't explain why the story of the Black Star contradicts
      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
      confusing. ^^ll
