Based on the manga by Seimaru Amagi and Fumiya Satou, Tantei Gakuen Q is about the young Kyuu, who is talented at deduction and reasoning.

If you're a mystery maniac or just looking for an entertaining series to watch, you can't go wrong with this one. Although the age of the characters belies the depth of each case, its a good plot for anyone who once and still wishes to be like sherlock holmes, nancy drew, etc. Imagine a school that actually develops one's deduction skills at a very young age. The graphics could use a bit more improvement, but nevertheless the cases are varied -- ranging from light to crimes that leaves you feeling regret and pity for the characters involved. There are plenty of funny scenes, and suspense read more

This crime anime may seem somewhat childish at first, but eventually a true appreciation for the intricate plots both episodically and arcing emerges along with a respect for each character. There are emotional angst-y parts nicely balanced with adorable comedy and character interactions. Fun to watch alone, but even more fun to watch with another friend or two to guess "who done it" for each mystery plot ; ) For an anime with murders as the most common crime there is very little bloody violence, so good for younger and older crowds.

Detective School Q is also a very intriguing anime, whih is similar to Detective Conan, though Detective Conan is much better.

They are both detective anime, but the mysteries in detective academy Q are more solvable and intriguing whereas the problems in spiral are more on the unreasonably difficult side.

Ghost Hunt is about supernatural investigations. Tantei Gakuen Q is also about investigations, it may not be supernatural, or have good animation (old) but if you like good detectives stories, then watch this 2 animes.

Both series have high school detectives. They also have school settings. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
It starts like a mystery-solving episodic story based on deduction where everything ends OK, but as far as the show goes on some mysterious power appear little by little, maybe some secret organization or a person that chases our characters, and is somehow connected with some of the characters' past. Gosick isn't even half-aired yet, though we saw some glimpses of the evil guy, and he seems to be similar to TanteiGakuenQ's

If you're looking for some detective fiction, then these two series are for you. Although presented differently, these two series have some tastes of mystery in them.

Both series has a cast of characters who are eager to become detectives.

Both series has a lot of comedy, drama, and some mystery here and there.

Both series also follows an episodic theme.
