Detective Conan, Boku dake ga Inai Machi Recommendations
In both cases the main character becomes a child after get involved with a criminal act. Then, he has to discover the reason behind with help of their "new" friends, hiding the true of himself and what he really knows.
Lots of ERASEDs "main features" are very similar to Detective Conans.
The story in both of the series are very similar but just presented in different ways. If you like one of these two series, I recomend you to watch the other aswell!
Adult in a child's body solving crimes.
Aside from that they are very different. The case in Erased is very dark though, much like the earlier Conan cases before people decided brutal gorey murders aren't suitable for a prime-time children's TV show.
Both shows involve an adult who is trapped in a kid's body, searching for a criminal/murderer while still attempting to lead a normal life.
The major difference is that BokuMachi involves time travel while Conan does not.
The main character becomes a child but his mind is still that of a young adult. In this scenario, the main character has to solve mysteries.
In each show, the protagonist becomes little/young again. Both try to protect people who are close to them from the bad (In Conan: Organization).
There is a few things that are surprisingly alike in these two anime.
1.) Conan and Satoru both are 'stuck' in a younger body, and it can be assumed Satoru will eventually have to deal with the same problems getting adults to listen to him when he needs something done, or needs to look into something.
2.) Conan and Satoru are both attempting to puzzle out their situations. Conan being a detective, and Satoru needing to puzzle out, like a detective, what happened to his mother and the people around him and find out who did these horrible things.
Mystery and suspense.
