Both Poirot and Marple and Detective Academy Q are detective stories that involve many characters and have the whole crazy crime set-up. If you liked one, try out the other.
Excellent series which stimulate the viewer's intelligence and challenge creativity without focusing on the gory elements of crime. Plot turns and twists everywhere. These are masterful works of ingenious detective fiction. Agatha Christie is known as the Queen of Detective fiction, and the writers of Detective Academy Q are hot on her tracks.
It is only natural that you would enjoy Detective Academy Q if you liked Agatha Christie Poirot and Marple. The same applies for vice versa. Both series cover engaging and intelligent detective work. Common events that occur involve murder and deductive skills. It is an episodic series that deals with the same cast of characters, but the cases they address involve different people each time. Both anime definitely give the same mood of "mystery". Detective Academy Q has a more colourful cast with embeded humour, while Agatha Christie Poirot and Marple takes a more conservative role.
Tachibana Sakon is a skilled puppeteer with an unusual hobby: solving murders. Along with Ukon, a one-of-a-kind puppet made in the Meiji era, Sakon manages to find himself in a variety of life-threatening situations. Join the duo as they put their detective skills to the test in terrifying cases of revenge, malice, and murder.
Both are mystery series that focus on the younger main character. They both showcase strong intellect rather than other traits to solve their crimes as well. Both also use a steady amount of humor and have a light side.
Both of these series are detective mysteries, obviously, but more than that they share the element of "participation" - letting the audience guess "who did it." In Ayatsuri Sakon, this becomes more of a process of elimination as the suspects are picked off one by one, while in Great Detectives it's more deduction. Though Ayatsuri Sakon is far more "scary," any mystery fan will enjoy it just as much as Great Detectives.
