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.
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 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.
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.
