Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai, Boku dake ga Inai Machi Recommendations
There are several factors that provide some similarities between both shows. For one thing, the main protagonist's have a mental age that surpasses far more than they appear to be, giving them the advantage of years of experience and wisdom.
The key theme between the two is mystery solving for the purpose of finding out the truth and uncovering the culprit behind the murders and preventing it by whatever means possible.
Both are centered around using time travel to prevent a series of murders, each loop becoming more and more tense. A major plot point centers around protecting a young girl (Satoko and Kayo) from their abusive relative, but the major goal is to uncover who is responsible, and the answer was right under their noses.
Time travelling without time machine? Saving someone from death?
