Hiroshi Agasa (阿笠 博士, "Agasa Hiroshi"), known as Dr. Herschel Agasa in the English dub, is a character in the manga and anime series, Case Closed.

Character information

Professor Herschel Agasa is Jimmy Kudo's next door neighbor, and an inventor. After Jimmy turned into a child, Agasa was the first person to know his identity.

As an inventor, Agasa uses his technological expertise to aid Conan in his cases, most notably the tranquilizer watch and the voice-changing bow tie which Conan uses primarily in most of his cases.

He is also a congenial and friendly person, which makes him very popular in the community; throughout the manga series he receives a number of gifts and invitations to social gatherings, which he usually attends with the "Junior Detective League" in tow (and which inevitably turn into some criminal case).

In his life, he was a big child like Genta. Forty years ago his first love was a girl who was afraid of animals whom he helped get over that fear [Case Closed Chapter 410] She is now currently a designer for women's clothing and is filthy rich. She meets him 40 years later when Conan solves the code to the spot where they are supposed to meet every decade. She pretends not to know him, thinking the Detective Kids are in fact his grandchildren and miserably returns to her company never to come again. She mentions that she was waiting for him all her life.

Name

His first name "博士" has double meaning. Read as "hiroshi" it is a Japanese given name; but read as "hakase" it refers to the title of Doctor of Philosophy. Since Agasa does have a PhD, Conan Edogawa refers to him as Dr. Agasa ("Agasa-hakase"), but if his whole name and title has to be referred, it would be 阿笠 博士博士 ("Agasa Hiroshi-hakase").

Professor's Agasa's name is a pun of the famous mystery writer Agatha Christie. Agatha written in Japanese is "アガサ" (Agasa). It is spelled with an "s" because the Japanese language does not inherently have a "th" sound.

List of Inventions

Agasa has made a large amount of inventions in the series; most of these inventions are for Conan Edogawa but he made inventions for different other people and the general public as well.

*Flashlight Watch- A watch that has a built in flashlight.
*Voice-changing Flu Mask- same feature as the Voice-Changing Bow Tie. This has been used by both Anita Hailey and Conan, when they disguised as each other for different situations.
*Personal Jetpack- He uses it in Jimmy's house flying and hovering all over the place. He ends up knocking over a bookcase, and causing a mess for Jimmy in the first episode. ["Case Closed(anime)", Episode 1 ] .
