After escaping from well-meaning but skeptical park security, with nowhere else to go Shinichi runs home. He there encounters into his next door neighbor and close family friend, Professor Agasa. He convinces Agasa of his identity and head inside Shinichi's home to discuss the next move. Agasa warns him that he must keep his identity secret because the Black Organization will kill him and others associated with him should they discover the truth.
Shinichi's next real appearance after shrinking is when a strange detective from Osaka named Heiji Hattori arrives at Mouri Detective Agency looking for Shinichi in order to determine which of them is the better detective. A strange combination of having a cold and drinking the baijiu that Heiji had brought along allows Conan to briefly grow into Shinichi once again. However, the transformation quickly wears off and he develops an immunity to the alcohol and cannot replicate the transformation.
Shinichi's next appearance is when, while on a case with Heiji, Conan goes missing and 'Shinichi' seems to appear. This 'Shinichi' is actually someone who had gotten plastic surgery to look like Shinichi and is trying to frame Shinichi for a murder. The real Shinichi hides in the forest until he can clear his name. Shinichi had been temporarily restored by another of Haibara's prototypes, but this time by accident; Agasa mistakenly gave them to Shinichi thinking they were cold medicine. After the case is solved, Shinichi transforms back into Conan, but luckily Haibara secretly followed him there and gives him another antidote, saving him from revealing his identity to Kogoro, Ran, and Kazuha. While driving home from the case, the group is stopped by another murder which Shinichi and Heiji investigate together, despite increasing pangs that warn of his imminent reversion to Conan. After the case is resolved, Ran tries to stop Shinichi from leaving, saying she has something to tell him. Shinichi stops her, saying \"According to my deductions, what you have to say and what I have to say are the same thing.\" Ran seizes his hand while he is transforming back into Conan, and though Haibara knocks her out with Conan's wristwatch, she refuses to let go of his hand. Haibara and Professor Agasa have to cut and re-pin Conan's shirt onto him because Ran is still clutching his hand and he refuses to pull out of her grip.
Although Shinichi asked the police to keep his involvement in the case secret again, rumours about high school detectives helping in the case spread quickly through the internet, with one poster mentioning seeing Shinichi in Kyoto, which doesn't go unnoticed by Hyoue Kuroda and Kanenori Wakita. The rumours then rapidly evolve into another media frenzy around Shinichi's person.
Although not related by blood, there is a strong family-like bond between Shinichi and Hiroshi Agasa. Agasa was the first to know about Shinichi's shrunk predicament and was the one to tell him to keep it a secret. Most of the gadgets that Shinichi has were made by Agasa to help Shinichi catch the criminals and solve the cases as Conan. He also knows about Shinichi's romantic relationship with Ran and sometimes teases him about it in front of her (when Shinichi can't do anything about it since he is Conan).
When they first meet, Conan and Heiji seem bound to become lifelong rivals, especially after Kudo beats Heiji in their first case. Even though Heiji discovers Shinichi's secret, he decides to keep quiet (though he often slips up and calls him Kudo in front of others). After Heiji realizes the truth, the two have become best friends, and consult one another on cases, developments concerning the Black Organization, and even their \"girlfriends\". They have solved many cases together, and Heiji is the person Shinichi turns to for advice or for confirmation regarding a deduction. Heiji has, on several occasions, declared himself to be Shinichi's best friend or brother.
Despite the fact Toichi and Shinichi only met once prior to Toichi's death, it's worth mentioning that Toichi referred to Shinichi as his \"older brother\" and himself as the \"younger brother\". This is because Yusaku created and thus was the father of the moniker Kaitou Kid, Toichi's secret identity. Toichi's son and successor, Kaito, has also only crossed paths with Shinichi as Shinichi once, during the Clocktower heist. Kaito thought Shinichi made the heist harder (and thus less boring) in Saguru Hakuba's absence, and Shinichi found Kid's intention of 'stealing' the Clocktower in order to save it from demolition to be fairly admirable. Notably, neither of them saw the other's face.
There are only a few characters in the series who know Conan's real identity and none have betrayed Conan's identity to date. The main characters to know the secret are Hiroshi Agasa, Conan's parents, Heiji Hattori and Ai Haibara. Vermouth also knows, but she has kept it a secret from the rest of the Organization to protect Shinichi because he had saved her life in New York. Eisuke Hondou, the younger brother of C.I.A. agent Hidemi Hondou, also knows and keeps Conan's secret.Kaitou Kid was first aware of Conan's identity in the movies, showing up as Shinichi in the third movie to protect Conan's identity, making it non-canon. Canonically however, File 1018 implies that Kaito is aware of Conan's secret, as he addresses Conan and Heiji as \"the high-school detectives\". Ran gets suspicious on occasion, but so far Conan has managed to trick her into thinking Conan and Shinichi are two different people. Also, Subaru Okiya has seen Conan use Shinichi's voice with his bowtie voice modifier. Since Subaru Okiya is actually Shuichi Akai in disguise, this means that Akai knows about it as well.

Nonetheless peace was short lived as tragedy occurred. The Koukawa clan was mysteriously massacred by Nomad and Edwin Black. Nomad, was a large international criminal organization, which was lead by Black, the secret Vampire King. However, \"Oboro\" returned but was changed, now having joined Nomads side. She formed the Oboro Ninja Troops, a group that became notorious in the criminal underworld. Using the ONT, as a proxy group, Nomad was able to attack the Taimanin and with Oboro's strength almost nobody was able to fight her, as Shiranui and others were retired at this point or had died.
Her sister, Igawa Sakura, that looked up to Asagi, had trained in secret to become a Taimanin. Though she lacked the formal training, she had awoken to a Ninja Art, a fact she kept secret. Asagi, was not delighted that her sister now wanted to be a Taimanin and initially rejected the idea. Though, Asagi felt like a traitor for being happy with Kyousuke and expected to be married soon, which felt unreal to her at times. This personal peace was broken when Asagi was unexpectedly contacted by the \"Igawa Elder\" years later, who had taken the position of clan head after Asagi retired. The elder informed her that Oboro had returned to life and was already starting to kill Taimanin again (TA1). Asagi took Sakura on a short information gathering mission, and they learned from the orc shopkeeper Byg, that Oboro acted as the master of an illegal fighting ring, the Chaos Arena. At this point, Kyousuke hinted he would propose to Asagi, but wasn't able to tell her the news because he had gone to help a relative, unknowingly falling into a trap. When Asagi returned home, she was greeted by Kyousuke, but as he was talking about their engagement, his body started to transform into Oboro. Her body revived by demonic cells from a tumor on Kyousuke, which caused him to be fully absorbed into her. Oboro also displayed a new power, she obtained after their last fight, a new Ninja Art which could control movements.
When Asagi caught up to her sister she found Sakuura defeated. The strange girl they saw the past few days was a secret Ryuumon bio weapon called Saya, a former Taimanin that was transformed into a crazed child-like monster. As she started to transform into a giant spider, she claimed this was a power inherent to all Taimanin. Meanwhile, Tokyo Kingdom Bridge exploded, with this also being a plan of Ryuumon to cut of Asagi and Sakura from any outside support. Saya's strength by herself was more than a match to a weakened Asagi, and even after landing some good hits, in the end Saya was able to defeat Asagi with her strength and tentacles. Knocking both girls out. They awoke cut off from support like Kuro, in a Ryuumon Hideout, bound to odd tentacle creatures.
During this period, Asagi is cured of her Body Modification by Kiryu Sabato, which had joined the Taimanin
