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.

Both shows are about solving mysteries.

Contains gothic elements and both uses books and the individual's knowledge as a tool to solve mysteries.
report Recommended by Rokuten
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 series are acclimated in Europe, both are mystics and have got a cute protagonist.

Both anime have female characters that have access to a knowledge through libraries and books.
report Recommended by ItsDangerFoo
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.

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.

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 have a distinct air of mystery about them with a bossy, gothic-lolita type main character. Also, they are both set in similar eras and have very gothic looks.

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.
report Recommended by Stray_Nekogami
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 anime have a dark, gothic, mystery feel to them that really gives them depth. I personal think if you like Gosick then Dantalian is your show.

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.
