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.

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.

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.

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.

Both animes future brilliant detectives, that use their "gray cells" to solve criminal cases!

There both about mystery and detective related. The main characters are detectives, or they work for them.  
report Recommended by SoSimpleSessy
It really reminds me alot of Detective Conan Anime. Especially in solving thoes Cases. The most cases get solved by a Detective (in Detective Conan) and here in "Gyakuten Saiban" the cases get solved by an attorney. 
report Recommended by Alex-chii
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.

If you like the mystery of Yuukoku no Moriarty, you're gonna love Detective Conan. Has a similar feel although, with Moriarty, it's from a more antagonistic viewpoint whereas Conan is from a protagonistic viewpoint.

Has a mystery feel to it and both are about finding culprits in murders and other situations 
report Recommended by Zephys
Murder mystery anime series. Both series gives clues for the viewer to find out who the culprit is. Detective Conan is lighthearted mystery while Danganronpa is a thriller mystery.

Similarity - Involve with murder cases and find criminal(s) Difference - Psycho-pass is an lot more serious Which one is better? Well, it gives a difference feeling, so can't choose

Both are detective TV shows, un-go focuses more on supernatural cases while detective conan focuses on daily, realistic cases. Both are accompanied by feelings of Shounen genre bits

Similiar ideas, solving a case about murders and killers, there are intelligent characters who can solve the case!!!

The same genre where it involves young dudes with good observation and deduction skills, except the dude in one anime is taller than the other dude from another anime. 
report Recommended by RazorRamona200
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

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.

The main characters are both turned back into their younger selves from a drug. Detective Conan has 800+ episodes and focuses more on solving crimes. But just like in ReLIFE, adapting to a new life as a younger version of yourself is part of the plot.

Both Anime are of the detective genre with a sort of supernatural twist to them, if you are so inclined.

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  read more

they are both case by case in each episode with their own slow progressing storyline. one solves mysteries of murder cases while one helps the victim of a bad encounter to get their revenge...

Milky Holmes pokes fun of the classic type of mystery that shows up in Detective Conan series. The original Sherlock is also mentioned at times. 
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
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.

1. Long list of episodes so youll never be bored 2. Great plot 3. Interesting characters 
report Recommended by RagonWest
Both feature an adult or near-adult that gets transformed into a small child if that is your cup of tea, and involve various pitfalls and struggles in trying to adapt to a smaller body, including hiding their identity in some parts and pretending to be a younger relative to themselves. The two series have this element in common but completely different tones. Detective Conan takes on a more action/mystery oriented atmosphere with many comedic highlights while Asatte no Houkou is relaxed and melancholic, mixing emotional drama with warm, happy moments 
report Recommended by Novern
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.

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 are extremely slow paced mystery/thriller/detective shows , and while detective Conan has its lighthearted moments, Monster keeps getting darker and darker. 
report Recommended by AhmedJafar1
- both are detective genre - both involve a detective agency - both protagonists are staying in a detective agency - one of the characters share the same first name (Edogawa Ranpo , Edogawa Conan) - same kind of drama x comedy. - The main protagonists can kinda transform.. Atsushi can turn into a tiger, and Cona/Shinichi can turn into a child (but with some kind of a drug) - I love both series !

How being poisoned can change your life? What awaits is not death but shock, thrill and suspense! 
report Recommended by Lucek
These anime are similar in that both anime deals with mysteries. Kuroshitsuji deals with the mystery of who killed the MCs parents and in Detective Conan you deal with the MC trying to get his body back from the black organization. 
report Recommended by Konan_Edogawa_
Lupin III is more similar to the Action aspect of Detective Conan. If you enjoy the thrill in Detective Conan where Conan catches criminals especially in the movies) or the times when there are Kaito Kid cases, Lupin the Third is definitely the anime for you. Both have: -Police vs Criminal scenes -Phantom thief characters (Kaito and Lupin) -Similar Humor These two anime have also had 2 crossover movies.

Both series are about the inhabitants of a Detective Agency that solve cases they get involved into. Also, both main charaters, Conan in DC and Kat in LMDA, get looked down to and have to prove themselves thought their series, Conan because he's now a kid and Kat because his father, professor Layton, was the one who solved mysteries. So, if you are looking for a detective anime that won't make you wait until 2099 to see the end of it, I think LMDA is a great option with its light mysteries and interesting characters.

They both have the same feeling when I watch them. Kogoro Mouri and Ryo Saeba also share the same voice actor in Japanese (Mouri's VA was changed at ep553) and funny enough, both Mouri and Saeba are Pervy funny guys that solve crimes/help people. Tho i gootta say that Ryo is way more competent in his job. B Both anime also are directed by the same person what makes them feel more alike. I gotta admit they don't look much alike at first but if you enjoyed one of them I bet you'd enjoy the other one aswell.

Shinichi and Kaiji both have a similar method of deduction and meticulous yet mysterious sense of planning things out. If you enjoy the thrilling drama from one series and sense of discovery the main character gives, especially as the series goes on, you might end up liking the other.

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.

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 
report Recommended by Eriuu
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.

They both have "kaitou" kid in it where he steals valuable and precious items.

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

Antagonist in each series believes he killed the protagonist, but his victim survives and wants revenge. Drama, Mystery and some Action in both series.

Well the only similarity between these 2 anime is that they both turn into little kids 
report Recommended by AkatsukiUlquiora
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.

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. 
report Recommended by Mayuka
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. 
report Recommended by gdjdelacruz
Both series are made up of episodic stories instead of long drawn out plots. Even though Golgo kills people and Conan solves crimes, the formula is pretty much the same. 
report Recommended by moush
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. 
report Recommended by Lemon
- 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  read more

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.
