Both of these Anime have a dark, gothic feel to their art style and they are about the macbre death. They also touch on the supernatural, one about how supernaturalism isn't real, and the other based on the what if it was real.
Honestly, these two couldn't be any more similar without being almost the same story and characters. I've never witnessed so much similarity with two different animes. Simply, if you liked the other, you will definitely like the other one too.
They are both set in a historical era with the them full of mystery and a bit gothic. Dalian pretty much reminds me of Victorique, who uses a sense of authority to hide her actual feelings. Both of them also deal with mysteries paired with historical events. Overall, both of them are mind boggling and worth the time.
Both stories contain a mysterious little girl that is in a place filled with books and is found by the male protagonist who saves the girl countless times in their mysteries or adventures. The two bicker at some things, but they truly get along in some points, and there may be a future love interests in some parts of the episodes. Also both girls contain a supernatural power that either saves or solves real problems, and the truth of that power may be revealed in future episodes.
Small, smart girl solving mysteries with a kind man. There're lots of books and supernatural cases. The same times, in early 1900's , in a european country. They've got the same gothic atmosphere as well.
Cute little bossy smart loli girl wraped up in mysteries alongside a level headed, not-too-clued-up male (typcal tsundere victum) who has just stumbled into the situation and attained the status sidekick.
A period setting and wealth is very visiable in both.
Dantalian no Shoka is an obvious and blatant rip-off of Gosick. I'm sure that if you loved Gosick, you'd like Dantalian. Everything is the same, except for the fact that Dantalian has supernatural elements.
Anyone who had watch any of these shows will instantly see the similarities.
We have a small main heroine who was discovered by the main lead guy. Both heroines are bossy yet kind. They both keep insulting and hitting their companion. They also are very smart.
They both have Lolis and mystery solving. It's like scoobydoo but for pedobear. The only differences is the loli in Dantalala is Miyuki Swashbucket and the characters hairs switch.. (you know like the guy has black hair and girl has blonde hair but in this one it's like backwards..)
Both are set in a WW1/post war era. A foreign boy meets an odd, small and fragile girl who has some sort of 'power'. The characters show a very distinct similarity, just that their hair color is inverse (Hugh→Kujo; Dalian→Victorique). Both pairs team up solving mysteries.
Both are focused around library and books. Main characters are man and tsundere little girl solving mysteries and the man has a cheerful female friend who tsundere little girl doesn't like. Seriously if I were the writer of Gosick I would sue Dantalian no Shoka for plagiatarism. Sure there are some differences(Dantalian has more action and less mystery solving), but in the end these two animes are so much alike its annoying and awesome at the same time.
Similar Story - Cute girl solving cases with cool guy, Similar Character - Dalian & Victorique, Disward & Kujou

- Dark Gothic Theme
- Dark Lolita Protagonist
- Case Solving
Gosick is as starters more a detective anime where Dantalian No Shoka more goes to the supernatural problem solving. Both have a great Dark/Gothic atmosphere in them and each have their great individual character development!
With a great pace and nice story development both are a great watch!
If Gosick is about a beautiful young girl with looks akin to a doll and is a key element in its story, then the exact same thing applies in Dantalian no Shoka. The similarities aren't just in the main heroines themselves, but the overall feel and style of the animes. Though the plot may be different, themes of fantasy, the era that the characters reside in, and all the way through to the music, all of these elements give viewers that nostalgic Victorian era humans of today sometimes romanticize and long for.
Both protagonist solve crimes and have a guy who helps them. Whom they fall in love with. Gosick is an amazing anime. The girl protagonist who is smart but at times very childsish falls in love with a guy at her school who became her friend and help her solve crimes.
Gosick and Dantalian no Shoka are two excellent anime with both male and female protagonists. Funnily enough, both of these series, I always look back and think of them as a sort of mirror of each other. But, honestly, both are slightly predictable in storyline, but the concept is good enough to keep you glued to the screen.
Settings are beautifully drawn for both. The art is gorgeous and I like the consistent theme of gothic elizebethan clothing.
Both have magic components to the plot and have relatively okay-ish endings.
Both anime have a loli detective which loves books. The setting is histoical and both have gothic art style. The plot of these anime are about solving mysteries with a tiny bit of supernatural element added.
starting from the characters ....both of them found a girl somewhere (a place full of books i guess? :D) and both of the themes are very gothic same with the atmosphere kinda gloomy and dark but dantalian is more fictional than gosick.
-Both involves male and female protagonist working together to solve problems
Gosick: solve mysteries
Dantalian no Shoka: solve cases involving Gensho
-Both female protagonist are little girls
-and like sweet stuff
Dantalian no Shoka and Gosick are very similar. Both animes have a so smart and cute lolita main character female. Also two animes are involved with mistery and crimes which have not been resolved and have a Victorian gothic style. Both are insteresting animes. Recommended.
The two have similar setting, comparably of 1930's in a European setting. Both have a petite female lead character and a male companion. You could say both have a slightly gothic air about them and take on the subject of the supernatural but in drastically different ways.
Both of main female characters like books a lot (library is really the place they like), they don't act shy and deal with the mystery, but Dantalian no Shoka is more about supernatural stuff unlike Gosick while last has more detective stuff. You will enjoy to see Europe of the past century with amazing buildings, castles, clothes and overall atmosphere.
Both female main character are tsundere gothic lolita.
The theme of books are really present, where the female MC have a lot of knowledge about them.
Protagonist are clever and enjoy to solve problems and mysteries.
Even if Dantalian no Shoka is more about supernatural, Gosick and Dantalian no Shoka have a lot of common point.
Bonus point, both shows take place in similar historical period of time.
According to MAL, Gosick ended on the very day Kamisama started airing. HMMM. There must've been some kind of loli detective craze over in Japan, at the time. (Either that or the anime people were running low on material to sell to those looking for 'daughters', at the time, and opted for the not-so-popular aging detective genre. Idk.)
These two are built on the same foundations: In both there's an all-knowing reclusive loli, solving every case with their intellect/deus ex machina powers. They recruit Mr. Plain Average to be their masochistic doormats; mostly only existing to go from A-to-B on command and have things thrown at them from time to time.
Gosick has more than in the way of romance; Kamisama only offering tsundere rage over teddy sniffing. Gosick also has its heroine display adult maturity, as well as be childish over sweets... where as Ms. Kamisama wears teddy bear attire and, outside of case-rambling, might as well be the preteen she appears to be. BUT, if you're proud of being unemployed and not receiving education, Kamisama is for you. read more
Both of these Anime feature reclusive girls who happen to solve the mysteries around them by gathering the "knowledge" around them and simulating the fragments so that they will eventually come too. Gosick is set between the two World Wars and Kamisama no Memochou is in a modern setting. While the girl in Gosick is actually older then a young girl, both girls have qwirks, one for sweets, the other for stuffed animals. Each one is also very moody and can be disagreeable when they don't get their ways.
Both deal with a reclusive girl and a boy she treats as a combo gofer-assistant solving mysteries. Although the settings and time periods are markedly different, the way the primary characters interact and the involving degree of the cases and character-derived backstory are quite alike.
-Both Alice and Victorique are similar in that they both are secluded from society
-Both solve mysteries
-and both have assistants, Alice has Narumi and Victorique has Kujo
-Both animes are very good and if you enjoy mysteries being solved then I recommend either you watch both
When I watched the first episode of Memo-chou, I felt it was very very similar to Gosick. I mean, look at the female protagonists. Both are bossy loli characters that solve the mysteries. Though Gosick didn't have a cast of characters that assist in solving the mysteries, Memo-chou does, and it successfully introduces them in a forty-five minute first episode. Is that amazing or what?
Also, the male protagonists of of both anime are reluctantly dragged into the mysteries. The art styles aren't that similar, but they have somewhat similar supporting characters as well as main ones.
Ayaka is very similar to Cecile-sensai, as she seems to be the only one able to force Alice to do things that others would be scared of trying.
Although the characters are very similar, there is one solid difference that might put off a few people.
Gosick is more horror-oriented while Kamisama no Memo-chou is more crime and actual detective work.
Despite these differences, I implore you to check out the other. They're both great. read more
Victorique reconstruct case by reading books and collecting chaos(pieces of information(sometimes are info from the paper or collected by Kujo and sometimes both of them) in a secluded area(library).Yuuko,as a hikkikomori detective,solving case by using internet and information from her helper,Narumi in a secluded area(her bedroom).Both heroine are incredibily smart and has remarkable deductive ability.
Girls solves mysteries, something like a female version of Sherlock Holmes. Intelligent, insightful, humorous and with difficulty to express their feelings.
The only difference between them, is Alice (Kamisama no Memochou) is a modern version de Blois Victorique (Gosick)
Both animes are about a girl who gathers pieces of information from mysteries around them and put them together to solve cases. Both girls are exceptionally smart, have very sharp senses, and were both brought up in complete isolation from the outside world.
Moreover, in both animes the girl meets a boy which she has much info about and indirectly asks that boy to help her with her cases except that in Gosick the relationship between both develops more romantically while in the latter, both the boy and the girl remain on friendly terms throughout the TV series.
A big difference between both is that Gosick takes place centuries ago while the latter is more modern like and is where technology plays significant role. read more

Go sick is based oin 1920s while Kamisama no Memochou is more modern,
Both have a male side-kick/assistant who does everything for the girl,
Girl is mainly short with long hair and really smart.
overall the story is quite same, the main character is a girl and they like to solve a mystery and has the boy main character helping them. but the difference is the place setting, for go sick it's victorian style while kamisama no memochou just use the usual setting place in japan. :)
Of course, both shows feature a loli detective who works with an assistant(s) to solve mysteries!
Some notable differences: Memochou takes place in modern era (Japan) thus we can relate to the technology era that is shown. Gosick takes place in 1924 (Europe) so it's more of a "classical" mystery. Gosick also has more romance.
My personal take (these are merely opinions):
- Both of the female MCs are cute, although Alice is probably cuter.
- Victorique is more overpowered; is able to solve mysteries without technological backup.
- Regarding the above statement, I personally enjoyed Gosick more, especially considering it has the much stronger "whodunit?" element. However Memochou is more comparable to our time and easier to watch, depending on viewpoint..
Simply, if you enjoyed one show, chances are you'll enjoy the other~ read more
Both anime involve a male protagonist who finds himself becoming unexpectedly involved with a younger (doll) looking female who is highly intellectual and has high capabilities in solving mysteries/crimes. With the help of the male protagonist, the female prodigy manages to solve the mysteries that come before them and grow closer as friends and more, as they continue their journey through the story.
-main male protagonist is assistant to protagonist detective girl
-protagonist female is a detective, able to solve a mystery or event
-interesting mysterious stories
-male protagonist supports detective female protagonist
Gosick and Kamisama no Memochou shares similarities in terms of mystery genre, characters and storyline.
Gosick has Victorique, a goth-lolita blonde girl who is fond on literature, sweets and cute things, and excels on forensic and plays the role of the detective. Kamisama no Memochou has Alice, who is also a lolita girl who is also fond on sweets and cute things but also she excels on computer-related skills and forensic roles. They have also male assistant who helps them to solve different crimes.
In terms of the storyline and genre (even though both stories occur on different time settings), both stories is involved on solving mysteries and crimes that cannot explained easily by a normal human being. If you are a mystery fan, you should check this out! read more
Although the Eras of these anime are different, they have a lot in common.
+ Both girls are supposedly genius detectives
+ Both meet a boy who later becomes their assitant in solving mysteries
+ Both girls are lolis
+ Alice and Victorique are very alike. Both of them are secluded from society
- The Eras. Gosick is set in 20th century while Memo is 21st century.
Both anime have the central plot of solve riddles. Hyouka takes place at school environment, and Gosick between the First and Second World Wars. Gosick has more drama and romance, while Hyouka shows you more comedy and slice-of-life (and even moe) aspects. Gosick has a more elaborated plot, but Hyouka has arcs, so it's easier to watch without getting bored.
Both are about child detectives that for the most part only solve mysteries when persuaded.In Hyouka the Main Charcther is the detective while in Gosick the Main Charcther meets the detective and is the one who persuades who to solve mysteries while in Hyouka it's the opposite where the Main Charcther is persuaded by the female lead.Both are very enjoyable and can make you think but in Gosick it's much darker were as Hyouka is mostly every day mysteries.

MYSTERY GENRE: The main characters in both shows, Victorique and Houtarou, uses detective style reasoning to solve mysteries. They make detective work sound so easy since they are constantly bored and apathetic towards situations and others.
Both are great mystery/drama shows. In this case Gosick actually has more substance to its story, however this doesn't detract from the quality of Hyouka. Both shows are guaranteed to keep one entertained.
They are pretty much the same.
The smart person is asked to solve a mysterie.
he/she finds clue's, thinks, and solves it.
Both have their funny and exciting moments.
The difference between the two is that Gosick is about real crimes while Hyouka is more about school problems.
Both detectives in these shows have similar traits : laid-back, quiet, lone-wolfs, grumpy, and both have opposite gender sidekicks who are full of curiousities and often urged them to solve mysterious cases.
But the detectives also quite opposite : while Oreki from Hyouka avoid meeting cases because it will spend his energy, Victorique from GOSICK asked her sidekick to find cases for her entertainment.
"There are things that are really mysterious, so why not investigate these pieces and put them all together." Both of the series follows a main character, who has high intelligence, very logical, and beyond critical thinking, where they solve these mysterious facts and give out there final results. Also, they are somewhat emotionless, who rarely crack a smile, but has a caring side when looking out his/her friend(s).
Gosick takes place in the past where it follows a female character partners up with male character. Hyouka takes place in the present and follows a main male character, with some support of his friends.  read more
Both of the series are about a detective character (Oreki in Hyouka; Victorique in Gosick) solving mysteries that are usually inquired by another friend. Hyouka and Gosick function in small arcs, where one mystery passes, then another comes. However, Gosick definitely has more of an overarching story and seems to connect between the arcs (not to mention the big romance part of it) while Hyouka appears to be more fragmented (and barely any romance). The Setting is also different: Hyouka is mostly in the highschool, while Gosick is set in the entire kingdom. Despite the differences, both series does an excellent job with the mysteries, making them incredibly... addictive to watch (not to mention the amazing graphics as well). If you liked one, you'll probably like the other. read more
Both Gosick and Hyouka are great mystery anime.
Gosick is set in the early 1920's.
While Hyouka plays of in the modern day.
Only people who find enjoymend in series set around mystery solving will like Hyouka.
That's why i recommend watching Gosick first, to get you in the mood for these kinds of shows.
And to see if the mystery genre is really something for you.
Both anime use logic and deductive reasoning to potentially solve a wide variety of cases that are using small details that have a tendency to be overlooked and as a result it gives the audience insightful but interesting thrillers (a similar effect to the Sherlock Holmes franchise). Hyouka is set in a Japanese high school solving trivial/petty cases while Gosick is set in a European Country with political conflicts after war can be compared to England after WWI solving much larger cases that affect the city. However both give off the same Sherlock Holmes feeling. :)
These two anime focus on solving mysteries that no other person or people can solve.
Gosick revolves around the time of the early 1900s and Hyouka (came from a light novel) in a regular high school. These two anime are very similar with the mysteries that only one person can discover what will happen. After a series of mysteries, the detectives discovers some feelings.
If you liked Hyouka, I recommend watching Gosick. For both anime, the mysteries are sometimes episodic, and sometimes over the course of many episodes. However, if you liked Hyouka for the moe, you won't find nearly as much Gosick.
School kids solving mysteries, but while hyouka solves mysteries like 'who stole the spatula?' gosick's mysteries are much darker. Both have a bit of romance between the male and female protagonists too.
Both Hyouka and Gosick are mystery anime. Gosick happened during a gothic-era like in literature while Hyouka happened during the recent years. They are both aimed at people who loves mysteries and a little bit of life mysteries. Their tone are very much the same making Hyouka as an extension like to Gosick.
Both series involve the main characters solving mysteries. As Oreki solves mysteries in Hyouka, Victorique solves them in a similar fashion. Gosick also has a few romantic situations as well. If you like the mystery genre, watch Gosick as well.
Obviously, both have the same genre which is mystery. Although the mystery in Hyouka is lighter than in Gosick wherein people really die. It also has a great mc that has great detective skills especially in Gosick.
Gosick is a darker anime but I suggest it if you had come to like Hyouka.
Both are mystery animes, with some horror, set in historical Europe. The animation and historical atmosphere are very well done. They star very cunning and calculating children (Ciel, Victorique). Kuro is more of a shoujo, Gosick is more of a shounen.
Kuroshitsuji is set in the Victorian Era and Gosick is set between WWI and WWII, with a few similarities in plots such as a "war that will involve the whole world". Gosick starts off with Victorica solving mysteries and then getting into main plot. Kuroshitsuji is much the same, with Ciel completing various missions for the queen at the start. These two are also used as models or dolls; Victorica as a gothic loli, and Ciel dressed in adorable costumes. They have a loyal black haired companion that would give anything to serve them. These two anime have various dark themes to them, like the occult and smuggling, but make easy viewing for most audiences. I'd say give them both a go, since are also some key differences that keep both titles fresh. read more
Gosick and Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler are two series that at first glance not too similar but does have quite a lot of similarities such as:
The similar time setting being Victorian.
Similar relationship between the two main protagonists.
Both the main protagonists are stubborn yet an intelligent child with many demands.
Both tells story of the series in a various arcs/sub-plots
Both series has similar artwork.
Both series has a taste of mystery.
Both series has comedy, drama, but also some emotional moments mixed in.
Both of these animes have mystery in them and an older setting, both have some comedy as well as tradgedy, and if you love Ciel, you will like Victorique. Kuroshitsuji did not really have much romance (with the exception of Ciel's fiance), but Gosick does.
Both Gosick and Kuroshitsuji have main characters who help some kind of higher order solve 'unsolvable' mysteries. They also both have main characters who have a helper, in Gosick its a sidekick while in Kuroshitsuji is a butler. Gosick and Kuroshitsuji both are set around the same time period and have that same kind of vibe of something forever dark but somehow funny at the same time. While Gosick has more Romance in it Both are types of anime that will scare you almost half to death but keep you captivated while you are watching blood spill, even if your not the type to like such things. While in Gosick the helper is a human he is called The black Reaper which almost shares a tie into Kuroshitsuji where Sabastion is not a Grimm Reaper but a deamon. As you watch, like I said before, you will become captivated by what is going on even if its watching blood spill, but at the same time you will gain a kind of love for all the characters in them. Lastly both have huge climaxes that make you want to scream for more story and of the charaters in each. (which in Kuroshitsuji happens with the second season.) Hope you enjoy them. read more
Both series are set in a European style and older timeline which classifies to the genre historical and mystery since the two series also involves several mysteries to be solved. Both main heroines are served and by main guy. In Gosick, Victorique was highly respected and served by Kazuya Kujou but not directly as a butler while in Kuroshitsuji, Ciel was served by Sebastian as a butler.
They are alike, because...
-both involve a shortie being the detective
-they have a victorian style
-both involve the mystery of the MC's parent(s)
-both take place in Europe
-also the MC from Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) and the Heroin from Gosick are similar
Ciel and Victorique are very similar, because...
-they have someone who acts like a servant/protecter to them (a Butler, and a Japanese boy)
-they have a bad past
-they are harsh
-they love sweets
-both have some sort of power
Kuroshitsuji and Gosick are quite different, but both are placed in a similar time era and both have main characters who try to solve mysteries. Kuroshitsuji is more dark, while Gosick is more romantic.
These two series are in the "mystery" side, while Gosick is more of a detective serie more than a "dark theme mystery" like Kuroshitsuji, they both are nice to watch and enjoyable until the last episode.
They are both set as a traveling adventure in old Europe. The relationship between the main 'couples' are very similar, especially in the way the female lead treats the male lead. Both have a fair share of comedy and drama, Gosick is more tragic though (unexpectedly, considering Spice and Wolf feels more mature overall).
both set in the past with very similar scenery. Holo and Victorique are both the smarter one in the couple, and like to show it off. Kujo and Lawrence are also similar in that they are lacking in physical prowess, but would still put their lives on the line to protect the girl. i think if you like one, then you'd surely like the other
Both series involves a setting in the old English times. As such, the feeling that these two titles gives off is similar.
Additionally, the main female protagonist from both series are haughty, cunning, and intelligent as well as being wise for the choices they make throughout certain situations. She also shares an interesting relationship with the main male protagonist in which in the beginning, it seems to be annoyance. However, later on, they become compatible and the two are willing to help each other in whatever ways they can.
Both series carries an adventure like feeling that involves certain cases/situations dealing with thinking rather than action. Of course from that, there is also comedy, drama, and some emotions.  read more
After watching a few episodes of Spice and Wolf, I just thought "Amazing, another anime that gave me the same feeling as watching Gosick." Both of these anime are not set in modern times and they are both in the same geographical location. The first thing I realized was that the interactions between the two main leads are very similar. The females, both are "wolves", are very cunning and shows off how smart they can be. There is the excellent chemistry between the two leads. I wouldn't say it's overly romantic, but there is romance in both anime. Although the male leads do not possess any strong physical ability, they still try to protect their partners. Both anime contain a lot of dialogue and stories that require the audience to actually think about it for a while to understand fully. If you liked one, it is highly recommended that you watch the other. read more
"Spice and Wolf" and Gosick are both centered on Europe in the past.In both series a boy meets a "wise wolf" who isnt supposed to move from where they are but the boy takes her out and shows her the outside world. As the series goes on the 2 grow more attached to each other but encounter great problems that may separate them. The characters in both series are very alike and the feeling both give are extremely similar to the other.
Both are about a guy who has a random meeting with a very knowledgeable female lead.Both Are set in older times and both series really on focuses on the couple.Also both relationships in both series seems similar.
If you watched Gosick for the romance/character interactions rather than for the mystery elements(which is the correct way to watch it btw) then I highly recommend Spice and wolf.
The character interactions between the main characters are actually quite similar, although I do personally find the conversations between Holo and Lawrence to be more witty and their relationship more mature.
Also do keep in mind that Spice and Wolf depends less on Moe, whether that is a plus or minus you decide for yourself.
Both anime have strong female character, Victorique and Holo
Both main character accidentally meet the female protagonist
The female character lead at first, but toward end the male is the one who lead
Both anime have sad story
Gosick is like a darker, more mysterious version of Spice and Wolf in several aspects. Similar settings, similar character interactions between the leads. Similar attention and personalities of the main female leads. Gosick is definetly more intense, but if you like one you are certain to like the other.
>Same type of old-Europe vibe;
>Same type of relationship in the main characters couple;
>The female leads are sassy and bossy around the male characters to cover their insecurities / flaws.
>Gosick is darker in its themes while Spice and Wolf is lighter (yet still feelsy);
>Spice and Wolf is more mature than Gosick in the way it handles the main relationship and the dialogues, at least considering Gosick's first half.
The relationship between the protagonists are really similar (especially the girl main). They both are in a love-hate situation, and is really entertaining.
The only thing that differs is that there is no detective work.
If you liked Toradora you will defiantly like Go sick because the relationship between the two main characters are very similar to Taiga and Ryuji's.
The whole love hate thing. Although the plots are no where near similar. But, Taiga reminded me a lot of Victorique!
Even though Toradora is more Slice of Life whereas Gosick is Mystery, the main characters are really similar: there's a main guy whom eveybody thinks is scary because of his appearance when in reality he's kind-hearted and soft, and a main girl who's tiny but rude and treats the main guy like her servant. The main girl has problems with her father in both anime (though the situations are very different).
It has an adorable girl with an attitude and a boy by the same name who people find scary because of his appearance. They become friends and go on adventures. GOSICK is a scary and midly grusome show though.
In both of the series the main characters have little to no friends since everyone is scared of them.The feelings of the 2 main characters for each other grow stronger as they go through hard times and the boy takes care of the helpless tsundereloli. They are both based on light novels.
LOVE-HATE RELATIONSHIP: Victorique and Kujou's relationship reminds me so much of Taiga and Ryuuji from Toradora!
Victorique and Taiga are both TSUNDERE characters. They're both abandoned by parents, so they somewhat go through the same childhood experiences.
Kujou and Ryuuji are both responsible individuals as they take care of their opposites and the girls rely on them heavily.
Plots may have been different since Gosick is about mystery and Toradora is just an average highschool story.
These are both romance anime at heart. Though they have very disparate themes, they feel fairly similar. The female main in both are tsunderes, and their relationship with the male main has the same dynamic. If you liked the romantic aspect of this anime, I would really recommend checking this one out as well.
both anime are about short girls, that enjoy bossing a certain male around. GOSICK has a very touching ending, and so does Toradora. Both female protagonist are a little violent and blunt in their behavior.
Both stories have a love-hate relationship and slow romance, though Toradora focuses more on slice-of life-while Gosick focuses more on mystery. (Perhaps the plot is really different from each other.) There are also a lot of similarities between the two main characters.
People are scared of the guys (Ryuuji and Kujo) in both anime, but both care a lot for the girls. The girls (Taiga and Victorique) are both small, long-haired girls who are bossy to the guys. Both also have problems with their father.
Both anime have a similar relationship between the two main characters
Victorique is like a quieter, more refined Taiga, with the same (or more) amount of cuteness
If you liked one of them, your bound to like the other :D
Alright listen up. Literally during the first episode of Gosick I thought that this was going to be like a mirror of Toradora, and I was excited. The only real difference between the two shows is that Gosick is darker, and has mystery elements to it, while Toradora is completely rom-com/slice of life. However, both plots both progress the romance of the two MC's very well, and the characters are almost IDENTICAL.
Let me give a few examples:
-Both MC's are misunderstood and feared by most of the outsiders.
-Kujou, the male-lead from Gosick, is a little less aggressive than Ryuji, but not by much. And they BOTH talk about how their eyes make give them a bad impression.
-Both female-leads have the same attitudes towards the male-lead, but I won't go into it much considering I would have to show some spoilers.
Overall the love story is very alike and they both wrap up in a very similar fashion. If you enjoyed Toradora, and don't mind a little mystery and a darker plot, you should love Gosick. If you enjoyed Gosick and want a show focused more on comedy and relationships, you will love Toradora.
Both show's left me with a void longing for more. Just go watch them. read more
If you liked Taiga and Ryuuji's relationship and personalities then Gosick would be a pretty good match for you. Victorique is just like Taiga. Freakishly long hair, tsundere behavior, and small stature.While Kujou has a similar personality to Ryuuji. A lot of drama and romance too. Both have satisfying endings that can leave you with a tear or two.
The relationship between the main protagonists is very similar, and not only that but they are even similar to each other. The main girls in both are of extreme edginess and also very agressive. The main boys are both calm and are very feared in school (for very different reasons though).
Basically, in the plot is when they differ but in the romance... it's the same.
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.
There similar not only because booth are detective gender but because the way they solve the crimes are just so mind blowing who will ever guess that was the culprit XD also both have really nice graphics and good music
When i'm watching either of these I can't help but think of the other.They both give off the same feeling.Pretty similar setting they deal with detectives.Animation is not far off.Both are kinda weird art.But hey if you like one you may like the other :)
I feel Gosick and Un-go have a similar feel to each other in the setting because when it first starts out it make's you kinda restless with the mysteries and the main characters in which here the "main" one's are Victorique and Kujo and Inga and Shinjuro. These characters referring to Victorique and Inga both have a weird aura or vibe and the stories are quite interesting there both mysteries and worth the while it just gives you this nice feel that makes you keep watching i on accident found both of them and fell in love! maybe you will to? haha
Both of these anime involve a very simular style. The clothing worn by the characters is very Victorian age, one series taking place during such an era and the other being influenced by said era. Both involve mystery, though Umineko runs more long the lines of actually having supernatural overrtone, while Gosick has a supernatural undertone.
Both animes are set in similar times and have a similar style/feel to them. They're both not afraid to show blood, but Umineko takes that lack of fear a bit farther than GOSICK does. They each are very mystery-oriented stories(though it doesn't adapt well in the Umineko anime), and are quite fun to try and figure out!
I'd say GOSICK is pretty much a mix between your average detective anime and Umineko, but with a bit lighter feel to it..
Both animes involve mysteries, murder, and one intelligent "detective", who is able to create a sort of truth scenario when announcing their claims. Their settings also give off a similar, European, feel. The only main difference is that in Gosick, we are always 100% assured of our "detective's" claims.
Both of these animes have the main characters as a guy and a girl.
Though Pandora Hearts has to do a lot with getting rid of demons from the Abyss, while Gosick only deals with mysteries, they remind me of each other.
In each anime, the guy MC has to go find the girl MC and ends up saying their name 20 million times, then yelling it, then saying that they are friends.
There is the presence of love in both animes, but it's definitely not the main plot, in fact, it practically brushes the tip of both animes.
They seem to have nothing in common at first, but if you look at the depths of the anime, you will see the similarities. read more
A person comes from Japan to Europe and they end up dealing with the cultural differences between their country and the one they are visiting. On top of this the people around them learn about the cultural differences too.
Both series deal with a Japanese person adapting to life in turn-of-the-century Europe. Gosick is a fair bit heavier with its mystery plots and intrigue whereas Ikoku Meiro no Croisée is typically lighthearted and slice-of-life-y, but the fish-out-of-water character aspects and moments of unanticipated cultural clashes are consistant between both and provide ample similarities throughout.
I cant say they are too much similar, but the foreign effect of both animes and that cute and innocent love story side (LOL) is somewhat made me do this recommendation. Otherwise Gosick is centered on mystery, but Ikoku is more has a sweet and calm side.
although both animes have some differences, the artwork and characters are really similar. Both have a very cute main protagonist, also, a both anime's have the two main characters from different backgrounds, however, instead of the lead male going to the lead females country, its the other way round. Also, Ikoku Meiro no Croisee is more refreshing so if one enjoyed gosick, its more likely they'll enjoy this anime too.
Art and style in both animes are heavy influenced by France during the 19th-20th century. However, Gosick is a detective type plot and much more serious and mature in contrast to Ikoku meiro which is more childish and laid-back.
While seemingly similar at first glance, these two series actually have a bit in common:
1) Both series has a young girl (although different personalities) that is cute/doll-like who has a friend who cares for her
2) Both the male protagonist in the series have similar personalities
3) Both series has a similar setting as in the French/Victorian like style
4) Both series has similar artwork
5) Both series are lighthearted that contains comedy, drama, and some emotions
Both these anime involve solving supernatural mystery (singular for death note, plural for gosick)
The differences show where the super smart protagonist is male in Death Note but female in Gosick.
Victorique has wierd habits and solves mysteries insanely fast and police often rely on her, just like L. She also only takes cases that interest her, just like L. Also Gosick is told from protagonist point of view, where as Death Note is told from antagonist point of view (mostly)
Both are mystery anime and have a very similar atmosphere. The main protagonists, a female genius and a soft-hearted but brave supporting male student solve mysterious cases. Though every episode greets us with yet another mystery there is a clear secret around the main character Sakurako, as we had it in Gosick with little Victorique.
The main female protagonists act very similar; sometimes they are very honest and concentrated on the case, other times they act childish, especially while having an argument with the male protagonist.
An amazing detail to notice is the way both Sakurako and Victorique solve those mysteries. Victorique gathers her 'fragments of chaos' in a wondrous, fantastical demonstration of her way of thinking shown as splitted crystals and Sakurako seems to be trying to feel the situation as we can see bones floating around with her saying 'let us solve the mystery!'.
Both shows give mystery lovers this epic, unique feeling. read more
Both are Mystery genre.
Both are a story about a female protagonist with a male guardian who counter an incident and solve it like a detective.
The differences are, Gosick is in middle-age setting with a loli as female protag, and Sakurako-san is a adult woman.
Gosick and Sakurako-san are animes which star a female protagonist who are great at solving mysteries. However, the female MC in Gosick is a loli who is basically a crime solving genius while the female MC in Sakurako-san is a mature (extremely debatable due to her personality) woman who loves studying bones which then gives her the knowledge to solve mysteries.
Both animes also have a male protagonist which basically acts as their guardian or aide. Compared to the female protagonists, the male characters don't really have skills or knowledge that can help solve problems. However, the male characters are crucial in keeping the female protagonists safe (Gosick) and also keeping them in line (Sakurako-san).
Gosick has a really gothic, European setting (something like the Industrial Age in London), with the art making it look a little more dark or depressing (in a good way). While Sakurako-san is set in the 21st century and the animation and colors are absolutely gorgeous.
Both anime are really amazing. They both have great mystery stories, and if you liked Gosick, I strongly recommend Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru (There's A Dead body Under Sakurako's feet)
Both protagonists are geniuses. Both anime have this supernatural - mysterious feeling, but, in the end, everything makes sense.
Both feature a blonde female lead character who is initially arrogant towards the male protagonist but also are trapped physically and mentally by conditions set upon them (Victorique with her father and Mina with the three clans). The male protagonists end up being the ones the female leads cherish. On a side note, Mina and Victorique are voiced by the same seiyuu.
I just finished Dance in the Vampir Bund and thought of Gosick, because Mina(DTVB) seemed alot like Victorique(GS) The whole master/dog relationship (although not specified in Gosick, you can tell) is common in both. However if you are looking for similar plots then these are NOT similar at all, although they are both amazing and not very long animes, only the character personalities are the same, not the plots. But I found it very funny that Mina Tepes(DTVB) is the same voice acor as Victorique(GS)!!
The story is about a boy who try his best to protet the vampire queen, and so he finds out that he is a werewolf. Then he remember that when he was just a kid he asked the demons queen why is so sad and then the queen ask to be by her side for eternyty and to preotect her and make her happy, or he will die. He fight with many vampires, giant spiders and even werewolf, to protect si precious queen.
Both storyes are about a boy who try to protect his beloved girl.
Solving mysteries with a partner has never been so damn fun. Both these series adds humor, integrity, and style to solving mysteries. Detection fiction is the central theme of both these anime(s) that also mixes in some themes of tragedy.
Both deal with mystery. Victorique and Ayumu are both exceptional at solving these mysteries, followed by the character that helps them obtain information (Kujo and Hiyono). Both have a family member who has disappeared, but gosick gives it less relevance. They both take place in a school, even when a lot of the mysteries don't take place there. Gosick takes place in a alternative version of europe in the beginning of the twentieth century (between the first world War and the start of the second). And while we don't have a clear image of when it takes place, we know for sure is in this century.
Both share the mystery aspect, but if you liked one there is no grantee you will like it. But give it a try both are worth it. read more
They both contain a male protagonist who is in love with the girl and helps her out with her journey. Both contain hilarious comedy and are incredibly funny. Both of the female protagonists are unsure about the the guy at first. I can't quite fit the similarities in this paragraph with out it being a page long. If you liked one, I guarantee you'll love the other.
These two series brought me lot of joy to watch. ZNT and GS have lot of similarities - for example there are two main characters in both series, the female and male hero who are madly in love, but the female character always acts pushy, noisy, aggressive, upset, jealous and of course call's her male friend a servant all the time and bullies him.
And the male character always shows his love, courage and will to defend his beloved Louise/Victorica in full action and adventure story of love and courage.
If you watched ZNT you will definitely love Gosick or in another way.
Imagine Zero no Tsukaima without comedy and magic, placed somewhere in time (for example, 10 years after WWI), seasoned with some mystery... Now it's no longer Zero, it's Gosick. They are so similar, yet different.
In both series, there is a couple between a native girl and a foreign boy (japanese). They start to develop feelings for each other, and need to overcome challenges togheter, one of which being the girl's family. Both main girls are special, one has a secret magic power which is very powerful, and the other is the most intelligent person alive. The boys are pretty much the same, following their lover's orders, and rescuing them if necessary.
Gosick is a more serious approach of a similar theme, and it's undoubtedly a very good series. read more
History buffs, especially those fascinated with the tumultuous years between the two world wars, will come to love (or at least appreciate) that which Gosick and Senkou no Night Raid bring to the table. These two anime tell fascinating fictional tales rooted in history, both starting off with somewhat episodic and seemingly unrelated cases/missions that all tie together and culminate into an overarching, global plot.
they are both interesting stories about mysteries that don't seem to be connected, but end up actually being connected in the end. the cast of gosick, while not as big as that of baccano is very interesting and fleshed out. the relationships between the characters seem realistic and don't feel forced. they also take place in a similar time period.
While in danganronpa the characters fight to survive and get out of a Life or dead game in which they need to solve the mysteries behind the deads that occur in a school where they are arrested Gosick happens in a school of a foreign country where the main character meets a young blond haired girl who's a big detective and together they solve the mysteries about old legends and crimes. Both are worth watching and have lots of mystery
For the mystery murder part, the two have a very similar vibe, as the resolutions of the murders are very fast but are logical and interesting. Also, the fact that the detective is the sub-protagonist Victorique/Kirigiri and her "assistant" is the protagonist Kujo/Naegi is very similar, due to all of them having similiar personalities (well, Victorique is a bit mean but she can be as serious as Kirigiri if the situation deserves that).
There is a major plot behind the two as well that happens in the second half where no more murders will practically occur, and if they do, it's totally relevant to the plot.
So, if you liked the style of cases in Danganronpa, give Gosick a try. Both are very well done. read more
Both shana clone, kuudere/tsundere female characters with male nice guy love interests. An extremely similar dynamic between the two main characters, with a more dominating female. Inu X Bokuu SS is more of an Urban Fantasy in modern day japan, while Gosick is a historical mystery set in Europe. Inu X Bokuu SS has more action and romance and is a bit funnier, with Gosick being more serious.
The main female leads, Victorique and Ririchiyo, both have similar personality traits, including how they are unwilling to acknowledge their true feelings. They are also short and often accompanied by the main male character, Kujo and Miketsukami respectively. They rely on the main male and become closer and closer to them.
However, although both of them have romance, they do not have similar plotlines. Gosick is about solving mysteries in the Victorian era, while Inu x Boku SS is about youkai, leaning on the supernatural genre (though it mainly revolves around the romance and drama).
Both of the stories have young children solving cases beyond adult capabilities. Although Labyrinth does contain more fantasy, they have similar plot lines and anyone who enjoyed Gosick will most likely enjoy Labyrinth too.
First of all, it's all about the suspense and the atmosphere of the anime! The creepiness and awesomeness and all the exciting mysteries and... ah! *fakes cough* What I mean to say it, they're both amazing ;3
both main character leave their homeland and leave to Europe to make them self better beacause of their Father, and each one of them spend the time with some girl , and get involve in solving the problems and mysteries , and each couple have a teacher always seeking for what they doing.
and both girls are annoying and always get protected by the boy main character.
specially in Gosick and not so much in machine-doll.
They may seem different at first but both I find both series share a surprisingly amount of similarities.
Taking place in a more old age setting, the main male protagonists are both clever, intelligent, and has courage to fight for what they believe in. Their encounter with the female protagonist can be interpreted as peculiar yet seems like fate. Additionally, there is a solid degree of comedy in both series.
-both have that character thats calm, cute, mysterious yet smart
-both have epic mysteries and cases
-both have characters that are usually bored unless theres a case to look over
-ranpo kintan is just like gosick exept it is set in the modern age
Boku dake ga Inai Machi involves a main male character who is working things out mostly by himself and solving a mystery. It is suspenseful and psychological.
Gosick is similar in the aspect that there is a main male character, and there are many mysteries to be solved, although the main character does not do it alone.
Time is a key element in both shows, and flashbacks and other imaginings are common in Gosick.
Some female characters show resemblance in both shows, and one of the only major differences is the time setting.
Both anime are fairly well done mysteries that force the viewers to really think and consider the individual characters' situations. While the mystery in Erased was more obvious than most given the small cast of characters, the mysteries in Gosick are not as obvious on the surface and are more involved and unexpected. So, if you were either unsatisfied with the mystery in Erased or are looking for another, then Gosick is your best bet.
Both anime share a series of intricate mystery theme and slight hint of romance, with a main lead who finds himself unexpectedly fascinated by an enigmatic girl (Victorique/Fremy). Victorique and Fremy share a similar dismissing personality towards others, which we slowly see evolve.
These two shows have many differences, but the overall feeling a viewer can get from them is similar. They both have this enigmatic atmosphere that wraps around the viewers. They are about mystery and solving that mystery. In Rokka no Yuusha the mystery involves all of the main characters who work together to solve it. Gosick on the other hand has many mystery cases that are mainly solved by one person. Romance is included in both of them. Nevertheless the mystery as a theme is displayed strongly in both of them and that is what makes them similar.
Both involve a second party character that stumbles into the main characters life. Both involve a detective that relies on the main character to solve problems. Both of the main characters have some kind of special power that allows them to solve mysteries.
First would be how both the main characters, Victorique and Cossette have similarities in terms of outer appearances(dark-lolitas) so there would be instances that they give strong similar aura around them so as for Kujou and Eiri.
Second is that both animes also have elements of romance and mysterious/dark stories around them though Cossette no Shouzou is indeed a more serious type of storyline.
-Nevertheless both of the anime are very interesting and is worth the watch for fans who love the same genre of Cossette no Shouzou or Gosick.
Both stories have a girl character that have amazing abilities and are initially viewed as only "tools" to be used by others. They meet a boy and they find out that they are more than that. The boys both try to protect her but sometimes fails; they have a good heart but not much strength. The stories fall into the genre of romance and a decent amount of action.
If you liked Lelouch Lamperouge as a character, you'll probably like Victorique de Blois as well. She's a nice character whose is very intelligent and better of all - she's moe. Very moe. Although she is more near to Lawliet from Death Note it's also some enjoyable motivation to watch Gosick.
Both are rather similar to period pieces. While FMA focuses largely on shounen aspects, Gosick airs more closely to the political aspects. Both have elements of suspense and mystery- Gosick specifically is a mystery in itself, but the sense of suspense which pervades throughout the course of both shows is very similar.
Both include mysteries, action (not as much as Nijuu, but enough) and adventure.
Just like how the littlest details are important to figuring out the mystery in Nijuu Mensou, the same goes with Gosick.
Both are set the 1900s (Nijuu Mensou-1950s/Gosick-1924) and have.
The main reason why I recommended Gosick is because they're alike in several ways and keeps you on your toes when you're watching the Anime.
(Just like in the Pandora Hearts Manga) Literally every detail contributes to working out the mystery.
Also, Gosick is cute.
Who doesn't think a 5' 0", almost doll-like, girl with very long blonde hair and emerald eyes with a tsundere personality isn't cute?! read more
If you are looking for a series that will make you weep at the end then this is the anime for you.
I say, Sunday Without God and Gosick are similar because:
1.) They somewhat have the same atmosphere.
2.) There is at least one character that makes you laugh.
3.) At least one character that has great determination.
4.) Both make you weep at the end (not telling why)
Although the plots differ quite a bit, both shows have girls who don't quite fit in with the rest of society. These girls slowly change as they become friends and develop a relationship with the male protagonists. Also, the male and female protagonists must overcome some sort of adversity together near the end of the show.
If you want a story set in somewhat of a Victorian London look no further Gosick and Princess Principal are the best anime for you.
Gosick is full of intriguing mysteries and Princess Principal is all about the spy action.
We have two UN-feeling girls who solve supernatural cases though Miyu has powers and is a vampire. The two shows have a dark theme center around it no happy ending just suspenseful and strange, In Gosick their is more of a duo effort in solving cases while in Vampire Princess Miyu she mostly solves her cases on her own with the occasional guide of Larva.
Two shows in very different genres/tones - but at their core both have a plot structured around a duo solving smaller problems (games/mysteries) within a larger game/mystery. The female leads are very analogous.
Both main female character has high deductive skills & can think logically.Gosick focus at solving normal cases but Denpa cases were solved by the main character by analyze the perspective,the tendency of the criminal's behaviour and their mind.
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
A guy taking care of a young girl and fighting to protect her. She initially behaves like high-class uptight girl, but together they experience many adventures and come to rely on each other.
Also both involve powerful families and the secrets within them.
Besides Aoi Yuuki is the voice actor for both Victorique and Murasaki.
Both Layton like Victorique are characters based on the greatest creation of Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes. They are people very clever and deductive. They keep quiet because they know that their wisdom will solve all enigmas.
In Gosick, the chapters that are dedicated to Alchemist are most noticeable where the resemblance between these two animes.
Layton Kyouju to Eien no Utahime is a film in the style of the 70's, It focuses on the story and not add useless and misplaced details; while Gosick is tailored for this time, that is, has several features very 'commercial', such as romantic situations, stereotyped characters and moments repeated in many series.
Because Gosick is a series, you have more time employed to carry the plot and give more moments of mysteries, although some details misplaced.
Both animations are somewhat emotional but the end of Gosick is more developed.
Why Layton Kyouju to Eien Utahime is more similar to Gosick that Dantalian no Shoka ? Because Dantalian no Shoka is more fantastic read more
Well Sket Dance is mainly a mystery. It's about a club that solves problems. If you liked the romance in Gosick, there are a few episodes in Sket Dance with lots of romance. Also, some of the characters are alike.
I couldn't help but notice that both of these series involve mysteries with partners. In this case, Gosick has our main heroine Victorique and her partner while Phi: Brain has Kaito and Nonoha. The setting is a bit different but the mystery theme involving solving problems remain similar.
