it is somewhat similar because both is about solving a case.., in detective conan there are random cases in death note it ahs only one case, the Kira case~
... both are good ., those two are anime to watch for!
Both series are filled with mind battles, cat and mouse games, psychological battles, and thier main focus is on a detective trying to put the clues together to capture a criminal. Although neither anime focuses on action, their fast paced deductions, and dramatic scenes will put any action series to shame, as both shows have the punch of an action show, and the intellegence of a character drama (You will feel like your watchign some fast paced action show, although action isn't really present in either show). Both are smart well written series, with very interesting characters. L and Jimmy Kudo (Shinichi Kudo) are two of the smartest detective in all of anime and very similur. The cat and mouse game between L and Light is very suspenseful and thrilling, and the same for Jimmy's cat and mouse game with the many criminals. And Jimmy's endless serach for the Men in Black that streches the series lenght is very similur to L fighting Light. It's all very engaging.
The difference is Case Closed is episodic with bits of overarching plot seeping in every once in awhile, while Death Note has a few archs, but overall is one story from start to finish. read more
Mind battles, detectives, murders, crimes, police, geniuses, suspense, strategies.
Not to mention that Takagi and Matsuda are so similar it hurts.
Detective Conan has more typycal shounen elements, and is not as psychological neither as good as Death Note, and is much longer than the latter.
Mystery surounding teenagers, cropping up into their lives. On one side (DC) you have high schooler Shinji who solves these crimes, while on the other (DN) you have light, who creates locked room senarios where it is the ultimate locked room.
Both include detective-like logic for solving cases. Death note is like a cat and mouse game with L hunting down Light trying to get him arrested for using the death note. Conan has less storyline because it has more cases than one.
I'm sure many of you out there have seen the great hit Death Note, but may have glanced over Detective Conan or "Case Closed." Or maybe even the other way around! Both shows share the value of intelligence, cunning, planning, and deducing the actions of others. Both forged with great storylines, they are really deserve a good watch. The main differences are that Death Note is a bit "darker" both in color and in terms of death, while Case Closed is a much longer series with a little worse artwork, and the plot of each individual episode is what's important while the plot of the series as a whole takes the backseat. If you like either of these series, or just the elements they share, I implore you to check both of them out for a good watch! read more
They are both similar in the fact that you must grind your brain to decipher Conan's latest theory, or Light's next way to outsmart L. The story in both of these animes is excellent, and really worth watching. I can't stress how much you need to watch DESU NOTO or Detective Conan. The main characters are both very intelligent, and this helps. For example, you could have a main character like Naruto, who is annoying and dim-witted, but the show itself is great.
Death Note focuses on two things: Justice and Death, Detective Conan obviously & mainly deals with Justice, but not death. Although, I could argue that Conan and L. are very similar characters who both obtain a very great desire for their viewpoint of "justice," that killing is a crime, no matter the circumstances.
Both are about young dectives who solve many different cases. While Conan is looking for the people who shrunk him, the Kids in Tantei Gakuen Q are working for a goal and to defeat Pluto... a great series if you like detective shows.
both anime are detective series.. they have many interest part and some similiar story cases.. both main character are also teenager detective.. and there are many similiar thing on these anime.. during I have watching many anime.. these are the best anime of detective series.. for you guys who like detective series.. I really recommend you to watch them.. ^^
They're basically both detective shows. Also, the protagonists are both teenager...well, Shinichi and Conan are the same person so Conan really is a teenager. Both has a touch of comedy and dark cases. I can't really say which is better, because in my opinion both are pretty good.
Detective Conan and Tantei Gakuen Q are very similar. They are both mystery, and focus on a very smart, young detective who solve cases. They both have someone who is very good at fighting. Also they both have "master of disguises". They both have organizations looking for them. While Conan is solving cases to find information about the Black Organization, Tantei Gakuen Q are working to ambush Pluto!
Little children solving cases one after another. While the first one is originally a High School student turned to a boy due to a drug and the second one is purely loli with a dark past, both anime still portrays cases in which needs to solving that range from murder, conspiracy, a black organization and more.
It has a lot of mystery within this show. Also, you could compare Victorique to Conan because they are brilliant when it comes to solving mysteries. You could also compare Grevil to Richard. They both steal credit from the actual person who solves the mystery. The overall feel of the mysteries and how complex they are should get anyone to like either of these animes.
Both series are about mysteries/cases which are ultimately solved by the protagonist, who are both highly intelligent people who possess a keen eye for details. Most cases in Detective Conan can be solved pretty effortlessly, while in Gosick they are more difficult causing you to think more. However, no matter the level of difficulty of the cases, they're always pulled off in a unique & clever way so that even if you know who the culprit is you are still baffled as too how they managed to pull it all off in the 1st place. Also in both series, although the protagonists solve the cases all the credit goes to someone who couldn't solve a case for their life. Both series are really amazing in their own ways, so I recommend you check them both out. read more
Both tells about mysteries/cases and romance. Cases are solved by the protagonist, who are both has high intelligence. Many cases in Detective Conan can be solved easily, but in GOSICK, they are more difficult, so you must think more. Both series are really amazing.
But, I like GOSICK more.
They're both mystery, or in their case, homicidal solvers. If you love the thrill of finding out a way to bring Kudo back to his normal self in Detective Conan, then you'll definately like the thrill of finding out who the blade children are in Spiral.
Both Spiral and Detective Conan deal with the main character using reasoning skills to solve mysteries. There is also an 'evil group' in both animes. However, Detective Conan is still ongoing and Spiral is shorter by comparison.
In both cases the main character becomes a child after get involved with a criminal act. Then, he has to discover the reason behind with help of their "new" friends, hiding the true of himself and what he really knows.
Lots of ERASEDs "main features" are very similar to Detective Conans.
The story in both of the series are very similar but just presented in different ways. If you like one of these two series, I recomend you to watch the other aswell!
Aside from that they are very different. The case in Erased is very dark though, much like the earlier Conan cases before people decided brutal gorey murders aren't suitable for a prime-time children's TV show.
Both shows involve an adult who is trapped in a kid's body, searching for a criminal/murderer while still attempting to lead a normal life.
The major difference is that BokuMachi involves time travel while Conan does not.
There is a few things that are surprisingly alike in these two anime.
1.) Conan and Satoru both are 'stuck' in a younger body, and it can be assumed Satoru will eventually have to deal with the same problems getting adults to listen to him when he needs something done, or needs to look into something.
2.) Conan and Satoru are both attempting to puzzle out their situations. Conan being a detective, and Satoru needing to puzzle out, like a detective, what happened to his mother and the people around him and find out who did these horrible things.
They both have the same storyline : SOLVING A MYSTERY. Both have a main character who will solve crimes/mysteries. The difference is that Detective Conan has a more complicated and more bloody crimes/mysteries than Hyouka. Hyouka is much simpler compared to Detective Conan.
Kaito Kid, had appearances in Detective Conan it was always Shinichi Kudo a.k.a Conan Edogawa vs Kaito Kid,the story is Similiar.
Conan or Shinichi Kudo tries to find out about the organisation that made a gift that shrinked his body. And Kaito is searching for the organisation who murderd his father.
There is a lot of Mistery to solve,a lot of Detective work.
If you miss the characters from one of the shows they both have
EXACTLY the same Characters personality everything they even look like their copies
Detective Conan in the first episode is essentally Kaito except that he's a detective
then after the poison hes essentially the young detective that gets in Kaitos way
then theres the love interest in both Detective Conan and Magic Kaito shes the daughter of a detective
and in both MK and DC the protagonist makes her dads work hard so shes always complaining to him about it
Both conan and Kaito are pervs
Both are of course great mystery and detective shows. One thing I see that is kinda similar in the two series though is that Neuro basically uses Yako to solve cases in Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, and in Detective Conan, Conan uses Kogoro. So it's like both detectives use others to solve cases.
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro gives a lot more of a supernatural feeling though, whereas Detective Conan is a pretty much straight mystery series. So that certainly gives enough difference between the two for entertainment.
Both shows involve solving mysteries and the way the culprit kills the victim is always very clever. Conan and Neuro both hide there true personalities. The characters neuro and conan don't work by there real names they use somebody else identity in this case is yako and kogoro to take all the glory.
Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo is one of those anime that seems to be forgotten in the mainstream of things. It is precursary to works like Detective Conan. They show a nice progression of the detective genre over in Japanese Anime/Manga.
there both very good detective stories conan may be more Long running in this case alot of people may be driven away from Conan cause of Pacing issiues.
for those watch Kindaichi its Tighter than Conan in story telling on the other hand i admit i like conan more my self but as an overall Character Narrative the show im recommeding here is tighter told and has better case for the most part  read more
Truthfully speaking, I have doubts about the similarity between the two, while the first one is all rational and can be explained properly at the end of ever episode, the second one is rather perplexing. Though both still solve cases in the most rational mind that "humans" can commit the said murder to remove the fact the death may have been cause by some paranormal reasons.
both are detective stories, mysteries.
both have same feeling while watching
both the main character goes missing in between .
both the main character.
both main character in anime grows and shrinks.
both have detectives .
both have detective rivals
both have crimes are usually made opening in front of every one .
both anime the culprit creates false proof [alibi].
Action, mystery, and intrigue, the nail biting suspense is nonstop. Your quest for the truth begins right from episode 1. With more action and mystery than most new anime I've seen lately. Okay to be fair it's not the most difficult case to uncover and I was comfused at first, but it's the first one of the series so I went easy on it and gave it a chance. The mysteries and the other cases's just get better and darker from there, and trying to solve them is so much fun. (I think that's the whole point of this anime)
Bot these shows have a great mystery set up. They both have smart, but physically restraint heros. Conan has a deeper story and better mysteries, but Kamisama is a fun watch bringing more personality to the characters at times. kamisama's mysteries arent as deep and difficult as conan's but that can also work to its advantage because you feel like you can "win" more often watching it as well. If you dont mind the loli and schoolgirl like giddyness, kamisama is a great show for anyone craving more mysteries.
Can't believe no one made this rec...LET'S GET STARTED
- Both have zero mediocrity
- Both are a masterpiece
- Both are a genius anime
- Detective Conan is about the smartest guy catching the killer
- Monster is about the guy catching the smartest killer
- Both main character try to stop evil
- Both main character are smart, have wisdom, and brilliant
- Both main character do detective work
The protagonist Shinichi Kudō, chooses the pseudonym "Conan Edogawa" taking parts of the names of the detective novelists Arthur Conan Doyle and Edogawa Ranpo. And Ranpo Kitan is inspired by the works of author Edogawa Ranpo. Therefore, both are mysteries and detectives anime.
both of these anime are about solving mysteries and there's romance between the female main character and the male main character
the difference between the two is that detective conan is more based on logic and more "real" and psychic detective yakumo is more based on supernatural reasoning
there's suspense in both animes and both are worth watching
if you like on then you'll like the other
you'll fall in love with both the main characters personality and theres no annoying side characters in both animes
Both anime exhibit 'mystery-solving' act in their respective shows. The difference is, in Detective Conan, the main character himself personally investigates the crime scene and gather evidences while in this show, the protagonist relies on the evidences presented during the trial and deduce the case to defend his client. Both protagonists are very keen for details and have sharp minds to deduce the case.
Both series deal about grown-up characters turn into little kids. Both Loki and Conan, work as detectives since they have the minds of adults. The major difference is that the first is a demon god while the latter is a high school student.
The Domain of Murder OVA is very much like the Detective Conan TV series. Both are about detectives, who solve cases, and the mystery plays an important role. Domain of Murder is a one shot OVA of a manga series, while Detective Conan is the extremely popular anime of the even more popular manga series, that's nothing short of a phenomena in Japan (not so much in the U.S.). Both Domain of Murder and Detective Conan deal with realstic mysteries, that usually involve murders. Both animes have great characters. There are some differences however, like how Domain of Murder is pure seinen, while Detective Conan is a show made for everyone (not childish or anything though). Domain of Murder is more mature, and only a short almost unknown OVA (and a Live Action Movie), while Conan has multiple movies, OVA's, a live action drama series, and a TV anime that's well over 530 episodes. The animation in both Detective Conan and Domain of Murder are similur, but the character designs are very different. Also Detective Conan is more upbeat. If you like one of these, check out the other one. read more
For anyone who enjoys a collection of good mysteries, I recommend Ayatsuri Sakon. Being classified in the same genre as Detective Conan, both series share a common ground. Whereas I view Detective Conan as something fun that could be watched for entertainment, I found Ayatsuri Sakon to be more believable and enjoyable when comparing the two. One of the best things I liked about the series is that all the cases are never solved within an episode, whereas the majority of Detective Conan cases are often solved within that time frame. I find this helps to keep your interests in check throughout the series, as well as giving you time to form your own conclusions. For anyone who enjoys mystery, I strongly recommend Ayatsuri Sakon.  read more
Small children solving small mysteries! The Detective Boys episodes in Conan where the gang of three boys and one (sometimes two) girl(s) go around solving things is very similar to the set-up of Tantei Team. Conan deals with more crimes where in reality it would actually be deeply inappropriate for grade-schoolers to be meddling in though, like murders.
Both shows feature small children playing football/soccer.
Both are long running series that dealt in mysteries of crime, where it involves youngsters investigating it, however Detective Conan is still continuously running series, while Kindaichi is often divided by seasons.
Phi Brain is like Detective Conan, but without the whole teen-turns-into-child plot going on. Kaito is Shinichi. Nonoha is Ran. The side characters are pretty similar too. Like the other person said, there's a secret organization out to get the main character and his friends, so the main characters go out and solve puzzles or solve murder mysteries. A very similar feel even if the animes are a decade apart.
Shinichi is a teenage male who suddenly goes through a transformation into a different being. Now he must keep his secret from his friends or family, as well as his love interest and discover the secrets behind all this madness.
- Clever, mentally OP protagonists who enjoy monologuing and who are constantly surrounded by incompetent people of higher social standing.
- Lots of mystery, strategising, and pulling random perfect solutions out of hats.
- Some efforts were made in both shows to give depth to the characters; similarly poor outcomes result from those efforts. Conan is more inconsistent with the amount of effort put in as a result of airing continuously for over two decades.
- Fun shows for trying to solve the murder mystery/optimal battle strategy before the characters.
- Everything is explained extremely clearly, to the death (pun intended).
Both are good shows if you have difficulty reading subtext and/or want to feel superior to the brainless masses who can't possibly understand your hidden genius and complexity. For the rest of us, there's actually very little intrigue considering one's a show about political intrigue and the other about supposedly intriguing murders, but they are enjoyable shows none the less if only for the deadpan reaction faces and moments of unintentional humour. read more
The two have a lot of mention of different alcoholic beverages. Also, Ryu Sasakura (Bartender) is a very observant and able to take deductions of any detail as many characters in Detective Conan person. Both are professional enough credits.
Though Haruchika and Detective Conan differ in terms of setting (HaruChika focuses on school and clubs while detective conan has a broader aspect), they are closely the same when it comes to the mystery genre. The first episode of Haruchika displays an interesting mystery puzzle that needs critical thinking and analysis, the same as the anime, Detective Conan did. Haruchika and Detective Conan are anime for those people who likes logic and riddle.
Both series provide an unlikely hero doing the work of an adult and surprising all those involved. Also, Kindaichi, like Detective Conan (Case Closed), has a certain amount of comic relief incorporated into it. Anyone who loves Conan will enjoy The Kindaichi Case Files.
Detective Conan (Case Closed) is simular to CLAMP because both of the animes are about child detectives........ in detective conan the main character Edgawa, Conan is actually a teenage detective who, by certain circumstances, was reverted back into his child form. CLAMP Gakuen Tanteidan is about a group of middle school detectives who, like Edgawa, Conan from Case Closed, solve crimes/mysteries
Both Detective Conan and St. Luminous Mission High School happen to be mystery based, though the second is more supernatural while the first is more detective based. They also have twists to the plot line that no one expects.
Both Detective Conan and Ghost Hunt revolve around solving mysteries. While the mysteries are much different, Detective Conan revolving around murder, and Ghost Hunt revolving around ghosts and spirits, both are quite enjoyable.
Both characters try to find the thing they need in order to be not in danger. Kobato needs to find these little star thingies while Conan tries to find evidence to get the suspect. Both are really good shows.
While 'Master Keaton' is not exactly a detective anime (some episodes may be thriller, action or slice of life), Keaton works as an insurance investigator for Lloyd's and frequently has to solve cases for his clients. 'Detective Conan' is an example of a classic detective and is much more deduction-oriented. Both shows can be recommended to mystery lovers, but at the same time they both feature strong non-detective storylines.
both are about solving mysteries and bringing down organization. detective conan is more based on deductions and facts and yakushiji is more supernatural. they both have some romance in it and are full with suspense and some comical moments. highy recommend seeing both of these animes, they re story are different so theres no feelings of repetition but if you like watching one you will like the other
They both star a kid detective, except that this series takes place in a London-esque town that is also powered by steam. Both shows were animated in the mid-to-late 90's, so if you like traditional cel painted animation (that still manages to hold up) I highly recommend it!
It could also be a great gateway anime for comic book fans, as the villains in this series wear costumes to conceal their true identities.
