My favourite is Detective Academy Q and my 2nd fave is Ghost Hunt.
Ghost Hunt a lil more creepy, that's why I love it so much, especially the Bloodsmeared Labyrinth episodes. :D

I'll have to take a look at Ghost Hunt. I had completely missed that show.

I think I agree about Detective Academy Q, but I'd also like to mention Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo. Unfortunately I've only managed to find 13 episodes translated to English out of about 150... :(

Great Detectives Marple and Poirot would be right up there among my favorites if a) the cases weren't so familiar from the Marple novels and b) that duck.

Detective Conan
Detective Academy Q

I haven't watch Agatha Christie's Great Detectives Poirot and Marple but I would love to watch it. I love watching Detective Poirot on cable (I think it's a movie :/) and I read her novels before :)

Ghost Hunt focuses on exorcism. They have mysterious cases where some "ghosts" are included. The first File #" is not a big deal, but the other cases are more better than the first one. Cases are called "File #" in Ghost Hunt.

Also I haven't watched Agatha Christie's Great Detectives Poirot and Marple yet. But Soon I'm going to watch it. About Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo, never heard of it before. Tnx for mention it! Add to Plan to watch :D.

I just started getting interested in detective anime and manga and for now my favorite is Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro (and I don't think it's gonna get off the top 5 for a looong while) and also I like Spiral (does this count as detective?) - manga.

Not seen or read either of those... They're going on the to watch list. :)

Another I thought of which barely qualifies is Meitantei Loki Ragnarok. It was a while I watched it, but I think it was less mystery solving and more action, though my memory of it is a bit fuzzy.

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro:
Never heard of it. Tnx for info :D
Spiral: Oh yeah! Almost forgot! Great anime and I think we can count it as a "detective" anime :D

Detective Conan at the beginning of the series was kick ass......but now it sucks and it's like it will never end. T_T

Detective Academy Q.....was nice, I love it

Matantei Loki Ragnarok was fine, not good mysteries like the others mentioned before..but its worth for watching it.

Should we make a poll ? that could show the trend with a better efficiency ^^

for myself, it's for sure Ghost Hunt as fav =)
death note is really good too, but there is less frightening scenes .. and less romance XD
I like spiral too, for the atmosphere .. and loki ragnarok because it's really kawaii ^-^

Ghost Hunt is actually on my faves list!
Also like Spiral.
Detective Academy Q is on hold.
I haven't watched any others on your list yet. I'll think about whether any others should be added (that I've seen so far!)

I'll go for Ghost Hunt and Paranoia Agent.
Ghost Hunt for great proportions of humour and horror.
Paranoia Agent for... being paranoid :p I loved everything about it.

I also liked Death Note, as a story, but while I hated main character from the firs till the last episode [I was sooooooooo happy at the end :p] I won't say it's one of my favs.

Not sure. I think it's sci-fi + psychology, not detective story.

I guess Ghost Hunt is Detective if you think that detective means non-paranormal only. But it looks like we're including it in this club--and it still involves the process of detecting, and various cases to be solved.
I just finished Spiral (the anime). It seems like a low-key ending. Since I have yet to figure out the spoiler button thing, I can't go any further. I still like it, but it's debatable whether the "mystery" part of it all was solved.

If the essence of detective anime/manga is to solve tricks employed by the villians, then my vote goes to Kindaichi.

As of right now I would say my favorite is Detective Conan. Picking a favorite detective show is like picking your favorite dessert. They are so many that are good. I'm really interested in Kindaich but it hasn't really been subbed that far yet.
