The long break is over.
After a long hiatus of the Detective Conan manga, a new chapter was published in the the latest Shonen Sunday issue (#34). Furthermore, this announcement was written on the cover of the magazine:
Conan is back – complete comeback of the weekly serialization.
On the anime side of things, last Saturday CrunchyRoll began releasing its subtitled episodes 3 days earlier than before, thus the delay between the episode’s airing in Japan and its release on CrunchyRoll has been decreased to 7 days. Formerly, CrunchyRoll streamed a new Detective Conan episode 10 days after it aired in Japan.
On its availability notes, CrunchyRoll says:
Case Closed episodes will now launch 3 days earlier, Saturdays at Noon PST.
