In the early 20th century, Kazuya transfers to a prestigious academy as part of an exchange program between Japan and Saubure, a small European country. But while Kazuya would love to make friends and have a typical school life, the boy is shunned by his ghost story-loving peers who believe that he's a "Black Reaper" to be feared. Things change one day when Kazuya wanders to the top of the library and discovers a lush botanical garden, and a beautiful, small, blonde-haired girl named Victorique who rarely leaves the building and is fascinated by unsolved mysteries. Together, the two develop a budding friendship and take on many chilling and dangerous cases that even the famous local detective Grevil can't solve.
"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!
a rather bizzarre reccomendation considering they differ in atmosphere, setting, artwork and mood; but it is good if you enjoy the solving of mysteries from rather eclectic bits if information.
gosick is infinitely darker and more complex whereas Hyouka is lighthearted fun but both worth a look
I started watching Hyou-ka for the mystery that I had felt in Gosick. If you like mystery with a bit of comedy, Gosick and Hyou-ka come together with the way of solving, it is all solvable by the viewer you just need to think quite deeply sometimes. The backstories and atmosphere are a lot different but both are entertaining.
If you enjoy a character who solves mysteries based on seemingly unrelated and irrelevant scraps of information, these shows are for you. Additionally, the interactions between a low-energy and a take-action character keep both shows entertaining.
Both animes might have there diferences, but the way the mysterys are solved and the characters that solve them are quite a lot. Because they both are kinda these loners how are extremely good are piecing together information, even when there is very little. Plus they both are drawn into there knew life by someone.
Thou note Gosick is more darker if thats the right word, well Hyou-ka is more fun.
In an era when ordering on the internet has become the norm, online vendors have a new favorite customer: Sakurada Jun! From voodoo dolls to x-ray specs, there's nothing this middle schooler can't get enough of -- until a strange package arrives one day. Inside is a sentient doll named Shinku, who is one of a special hand crafted set of dolls called Rozen Maiden. Luckily for Jun, not only does he get to keep her, but she's decided he'll be... her new servant?! Join Jun as he struggles to keep his sanity in a house full of dolls who all want his servant skills for themselves!
They both have a goth lolita looking girl and a servant like boy,if you like tsundere based relations this is one for you :)
Both of them feature a gothic lolita girl, Rozen Maiden has several. Lots of tsundre goodness there, while the male main character is isolated from his peers. Both series get an awesome "I'll protect you" moment.
They both have an air of mystery, more heavily in Gosick, and fantasy elements, which are more present in Rozen Maiden.
Both Gosick and Rozen Maiden have distinctivly vicorian feels to them, mixing gorgeous dresses with dolls and magic, or detective stories. The two stories are more or less in the same range of darkness/light.
The main thing that ties them together are the bossy main girls. Both treat the male leads of their respective series as servants, all while warming up to their company.
If you like one you should give the other a change.
26 years ago, something terrible happened in a middle school’s third year classroom. A popular, talented student named Misaki suddenly died, and the ramifications of that incident have caused each third year class since then to live in fear. It is now 1998, and Kouchi Sakakibara has just transferred into the notorious classroom, curious about the mysterious secret that his peers are hiding from him. He’s drawn to one enigmatic girl named Mei Misaki, a quiet student who wears an eye patch and warns him about getting involved with her, and continues to seek her out against the pleas of his classmates. And that’s when people begin to violently die...
both anime are about mistiries and myths. gosick there is for everything a logical reason.both girl looks like dolls. but in another there is supernatural stuff. if you liked 1 you will like the other.
Both series are shrouded in mystery and a new transfer student is thrown into the middle of it all. The main characters of Another and Gosick along side a calm and stoic female lead, go off to solve the mystery that threatens both of their lives and will forever change their future. Gosick goes into a few more mysteries before getting into the main plot but Another is one giant msytery all the way through. Both series are amazing to watch.
Shinichi Kudo is a famous teenage detective who idolizes Sherlock Holmes and solves difficult cases with ease. One day, after a fun day at the theme park with his childhood friend Ran, Shinichi witnesses something suspicious and is knocked unconscious. What’s worse, he’s forced to take a deadly, experimental drug that shrinks his body to the age of seven. To protect himself and his loved ones from those who may want to finish the job, Shinichi dons the new name Conan Edogawa and moves in with Ran, whose father is a famous detective, in hopes of closing cases that can lead him to the men in black. But little does Shinichi know just how dangerous these men, and their cause, are...
Although not as sinister or stylish as Gosick, the riddles that need solving and the genius who can are certainly there. If you really like the detective aspect of this series and like puzzeling on the cases yourself as well, you'll definitely like Detective Conan.
Pint-sized detectives and larger than life mysteries are two elements to be found in both Gosick and Detective Conan. The settings are different but the themes are the same. Both of these anime present their mysteries in a whodunit style, with the undersized private eye unravelling the mysteries in the end. If you liked one be sure to check out the other.
After brilliantly solving yet another difficult case in London, Professor Layton and Luke receive their next challenge from one of Layton’s former students, Jenice. Now a talented opera singer, Jenice recently received a visit from a young girl who claims to be the reincarnation of her deceased friend Milena and insists she’s discovered the key to eternal life. To investigate, the Professor and Luke travel to the Crown Petone Theater for a special opera performance, but what they find there quickly becomes a game of life and death with dire consequences...
Dapper gents and porcelain dames solving mysteries around a turn of the century Europe? These titles have a very similar feel to them.
If you liked Gosick, Layton might be a good bet. It has a similar old-timey feel and a thrilling murder mystery to solve. I don't necessarily think the recommendation works as well the other way around since Layton is more whimsical and overall superior, so if you liked Gosick, give this Layton movie a try.
