Ayatsuri Sakon and Spiral are both fantastic detective series. Ayatsuri Sakon tends to be more arc-based, with random murder mysteries. Spiral has an embedded plot. Both have fantastic animation, AS being the darker of the two.

Though there are many horror anime, few are as similar as Ayatsuri Sakon and Mononoke. Though they visually are not alike, each has an element of detective work that makes it unique. Both the Medicine Seller and Sakon both must use their powers of deduction to get to the bottom of fairly gruesome cases. If you liked one, try out the other.

The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks.

Both Zombie Loan and Ayatsuri Sakon can be classified as horror anime with perhaps a bit of mystery. The characters are unique and fun and incredibly easy to love, but are completely difficult to understand to the very end. Enjoy them both, I am sure you will!

Both anime involve a dynamic duo solving mysteries, one more competent than the other. The protaganists also have a psychic power, that helps them solve mysteries.
