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.
Many of the suicides against a perpetrator will be certain of a human names the crime scene investigation case is very difficult and between the two characters of a detective.
Between the two caused the victim of a death ie one of them written the name of a suicide note or a black man
They are both mystery anime with an exquisite plot (both)about teenagers who's lives are complete secret and are unknown to the public.They both have a mager secret that if ever leaked could endanger their lives!If you love a good mystery you'll love death note
Both are mysteries in their own sense. While Death Note is more psychological puzzles, Detective Conan has actual mind boggling mysteries. If you're a fan of any kind of mystery, I highly recommend Detective Conan
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!
Those two are similar... I think lol, here's their similarity:
- Both mystery
- Both stories with both detectives
- Both main characters are really smart when comes to case solving
- Both involves school in a way
The main difference between both shows is that Detective Conan is about a high school student who is really good in soccer(Football for some) and case solving, but one day gets "kidnapped" I can say by a criminal and gets tested with a certain drug which makes him younger and tries to find that criminal in that young form with his grade school friends, Tantei Gakuen Q is about a boy who gets accepted in a high class detective school, but instead of getting into class ranks (A for highest, D for lowest) he got into a special class which never happened before called "Q". read more
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!
Adult in a child's body solving crimes.
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.
- In both anime the main character becomes a child and has to hide it
- Both cointain mysteries (Detective Conan takes a more episodic aproach while Erased is a single case)
- Both have a romantic subplot with the main guy and girl
in both anime the protagonists are forced to turn into kids and live again a childhood life while making sure noone understands who they really are and they also have to solve the mystrery that will allow them to turn back to their normal life for shinichi to capture the black organisation that forced him to take the medicane that turned him into and satoru to find who is the criminal from 18 years ago
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.
Both of these are mystery themed anime and the lead characetrs both rely and trust only in logic and deductive reasoning.
Both also have amazing levels of character development and show how events and people connect up.
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.
They both are about kids solving cases
- Conan/shinichi and Ayuma are really good at deduction
-they both are looking for someone, the people in black cloths for Conan and his older brother for Ayuma
-Both have detectives and mysterious and case solving
In short I feel that if you enjoyed detective conan you will also like Spiral.
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.
Both involves mystery and suspense - Detective Conan involves solving crime cases whereas Hyouka involves solving general mysteries. Also, both involve main characters of high school with good deductive capabilities. Also, both has some romance and sometimes, emotional scenes.
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
Both are the story of genius detectives. Both main characters are smart and solve all the cases in the shows. Conan has a wider audience since it has a lot more slice of life moments whereas kindaichi has more realistic characters and more interesting cases.
A shounen series covering mysteries and murders with a lot more depth and complexity to the characters and the murders process. It gives you more of a thriller vibe and devolve well into the methods by which the hero solves the cases. Less action for more thriller a good change that makes this series atleast as enjoyable if not more in a different way.
"Truth will smile upon me." VS "There is always one truth!"
Both are mysteries, both have nods to classic mystery cases of Christie, Conan Doyle, etc. If you are a fan of mysteries of one, I think you'd enjoy the other.
In terms of quality, I'd say DC is better and more original (and less derivative since ACnMPtM is based much more on the books), but mystery buffs like myself would likely enjoy both I think.
Oh, one small difference is that ACnMPtM focuses on two detectives Poirot and Marple whereas Conan is the clear main focal detective in DC (though there are others too like Heiji/Akai/etc)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 styled in a similar fashion. Each has a individual story that lasts 1-2 episodes that is ultimately, albeit slowly, making up a larger story. Detective Conan is a crime solver who puts bad guys away behind bars. Jigoku Shoujo is a crime solver who sends criminals to hell. (Although the people she sends away aren’t always criminals it does turn out this way a lot)
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.
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.
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)
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 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
-Police vs Criminal scenes
-Phantom thief characters (Kaito and Lupin)
These two anime have also had 2 crossover movies.
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 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 !
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
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.
- 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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
While it seems most recommendations on this site are meant to go both ways, this is more of a one-way recommendation. If you enjoyed Kijutsushi x Majutsushi, I'd consider giving the long-running Detective Conan a try. The latter may not have any sex scenes, but what it does have should be more than enough to make up for this one insufficiency. As for the similarities between these two works, there are several. Ignoring the sexual content, both are essentially about people trying to solve cases. Both have a self-proclaimed team of detectives working together. Both have characters making crazy deductions (sometimes crazy in a funny sense, other times crazy in a ridiculously smart sense). And one of the characters, the Phantom Magician, is similar to Kaito Kid, a recurring character in Conan. Really though, the big similarity is the mystery aspect. So if you liked that about Kijutsushi x Majutsushi, as mediocre as it may've been, that should be more than enough reason to consider Detective Conan. read more
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
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.
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.
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.
