The story of anime and the manga they are orientated from are not always the same. The anime stories are twisted and turned to make them more interesting. These stories have changed a little too much. When the storyline or plot of the anime is similar to the text, it becomes canon.
Even a slight change in the story can make the part a filler. E.g., if a character died, got married, or even killed someone, and that was not written in the manga, it becomes a fanon. If a manga and an anime have the same story, then the one which was released first will become Conan.
