The main character - Ayumu Narumi - has deduction similary to L. Having nearly none of information, he can figure out an enemies' plans giving for example precisely percentage probability, culprit's feet size etc.
These two have extreme similarity in the cool characters, thought-out plot and the general serious mood. They both can make you really attached to the story and make you want to watch them over and over again, just beause of the overall atmosphere and sensibleness.
They both have a character which isn't someone with normal abilities. They are intelligent, using their own mind to solve problems. Maybe character from Spiral is even better because he hasn't got any "magical" thing to help him.
Both animes are mystery-solving, although Spiral is more realistic than Death Note (without Shinigami stuff). Everyone who enjoyed Death Note will sure enjoy this 25-episode puzzle solving anime! You gotta watch it ;)
the main male characters are the same cuz theyre both prodigies and geniuses and theres a seemingly annoying girl in both of them. the plot isnt really that similar but i guarantee ur into that kind of genre u shud try both
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.

- confusion on who really is the antagonist in which there is a clash between moral and logic
- Cool detective work
- characters varied from avoiding, accepting and fixing the past
- And, unfortunately, the ending is what really connects these two animes together...
Spiral and X does connect a little bit, since Ayumu Narumi and Kamui Shirou was created as a savior of people, not to mention their seiyuu is the same, Suzumura Kenichi. It is like that even Ayumu doesn't want to believe about his fate as well as Kamui, fate will still make a way for them to do what fate told them to do so. They also doesn't get the point of what is destiny and that the two heroes could only change the future with their own choices and Ayumu's sister-in-law, is look up to be like Kotori that believes that the future is not decided in which the two of them believes about... read more
Solving mysteries like a pro. Both of these anime(s) are unique and rare little gems that some fans might miss out in the old school days and the current era. Regardless, these two anime(s) offers something special for those who are into mystery, a bit of thriller, and detective fiction.
In both main character has an older brother, who is involved in the mystery of the plot, whose whereabouts are unknown for some time and with whom the main character is sometimes compared. Also, in both the names of those older brothers sound alike.
Kaiji is constantly in situations of despair, but when it comes down to it he can create ridiculously amazing and effective strategies to break out from the seemingly impossible sitautions, similar to the latter parts of spiral where narumi is faced with problems with his life on the line.
Both anime are mysteries. For main character Takizawa, in Eden of the East, it is the "Selecao" and for main character Narumi, in Spiral ~ Lines of Reasoning, it is the "Blade Children". Takizawa and Narumi are alike, each with a "devil may care" persona. They also share a style of humor that is very sarcastic and dry. Both come off as cool, confident and nonchallant, and withhold pertinent details from companions while resolving mysteries that will, I assume, inevitably lead them to their goal.
They are both really similar in that the main character is intelligent and cool!!!XD & they both dont care about anything, nor do they have many friends in the beginning.
The ending is quite similar too! it ends up that both animes doesnt explain at all everything and makes you think there will be a second season.
Spiral: Using detective skills to solve things.
Spice and Wolf: Focuses on Cheating people out of money and Revenge (and you cant forget, getting Hora back to her homeland.)
They may contrast in background information, but they are both animes that you can relate to real life.
For example, Spiral: There are detectives solving crimes today. Spiral gives you the feel of a classic Shurlock Holmes movie.
For example, Spice and Wolf: Everyday, people are cheated out of money and everyone wants to get revenge on someone.
I believe that these animes both focus on the skills and emotions of human beings. And to me, u can't have skills without emotions. So that is why I think that if you enjoyed Spiral you might like Spice and Wolf. read more
