Both of these have a main duo with contrasting personalities, resulting in a fun dynamic. There are jazzy themes, with a western aesthetic. Both require suspension of disbelief but in a really fun way that only adds to your enjoyment; Great Pretender with the con artist skills and Fugou Keiji with Daisuke's expensive gadgets.

-Both anime's mains are duos who solve problems together -FKBU is more into the serious type, while jr is a light-hearted anime about jewels. -JR is more into showing the different types of love. -The visuals are aesthetically pleasing and relaxing.

Both dealing with mysteries and sassy detectives. I just get familiar, fun, badass vibes from each anime. However, Bungou Stray Dogs includes magic while Fugou Keiji is different in that there is none. But besides that factor they're very similar!

Detectives working separate cases realize that certain mysteries are related, leading to a deeper darker conspiracy. Police-work is aided by high-tech.

Both anime feature main characters with essentially magical items, whether it's a phone, wallet or card to spend obscene amounts of money to do all sorts of crazy things to accomplish their goals

In both anime, the two detectives who don't get along with each other. The reason they can't get along is because they want to solve things with different solution methods. 
report Recommended by Ewolver
Both series are somewhat similar with trying to bring justice out from an crime case, I would recommend zankyou no terror with more mature audience But both are really similar , I found millionaire detective has a lot of comedy ans stuff you should really check them out both

Both shows feature a crime-solving duo that have a rough beginning but over time, develops into a friendship through their adventures together. They both feature futuristic technology that aids their investigations, as well as a fun police team they are apart of.

Rich people use their money to fight crime. Both have protagonist with a mysterious past. Both have secret agent vibes to it. Both have high end action scenes. Both shows deal with corporations using powerful objects for their own gain. Similar aesthetic.

report Recommended by AayameMiyamizu86
Both approach the same theme, the mystery. Both have male characters as protagonists and a female character as deuteragonist. Light and easy to watch anime. Enjoy, and one more thing, both are wonderful.

Both the MCs kinda give the same vibe. Both come of respectable high class families and are kinda spoilt by the facilities they have been getting since childhood and both hate responsibilities and are kinda lazy to abide by the rules.

Similarities: - Both are police animes - Both have two main characters who get closer to each other than the rest of the force. - They both have an experienced worker being moved down to work with the lowest in the police force. Differences: - Fugou Keiji has a lot more action whilst Hakozume is more slice of life based. - The main characters are boys and boys and girls and girls. - Fujou gets more into cases and doesn't get into normalised police work, Hakozume does.

Both these anime are truly amazing, they both show different sides of mystery and adventure. I would recommend that if you like one you’ll like the other. Balance unlimited was a quick love for me, as soon as I saw the first episode I knew that it would become one of my favourites. However compared to that Classroom of the Elite was slow to begin for me, but as I got to know the main character I was hooked, he was just too interesting. But this could be related to the fact that the main character is apathetic in a way that draws watchers in.  read more

Although Balance Unlimited isn't as dark as banana fish, the similarities I have from both is big people have their hands on a dangerous thing (banana fish/adollium) that can ruin the whole world. 
report Recommended by Paradiso09
Both are crazy, nonsensical and over-the-top comedy that has ridiculousness built into it. Although Fugou Keiji is more serious and has less echi, I recommend you give the show a try 
report Recommended by juliuschai
Both episodic shows centered around 'law-keeping' in an alternate universe and associated misadventures Very similar bold style of character introductions and general vibe Balance Unlimited is more realistic and "cool", with a James Bond-esque feel in an alternate world appearing similar to modern day. Kekkai Sensen is very colorful and playful, taking place in a magical version of New York City Both explore the city/worldbuild within the premise of the case per episode, but also have a long-term dramatic narrative arc.

similar character and vibes if you like Acca 13 you will find something interesting here  
report Recommended by Ali_Almazrouei
both anime are about characters dealing with situations their own bizarre way in case of The Millionaire Detective it's with money! 
report Recommended by Girasol
The characters are practically the same people, however, in Ikebukuro West Gate Park (IWGP), the MC tries to solve problems only when it occurs in their set/area/neighborhood. Main characters Makoto (Haru) and Takashi (Daisuke) are statically the same people, however IWGP is about gangs and warring factions, where as Fugou Keiji is a detective/crime based genre. Each still focuses on learning the truth and to clean up the streets within their respective areas.

Both animes are about special police departments, where a couple of colleagues are investigating strange cases. Each anime has a partner who, for some reason, has a phobia about gun.
