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.

These are what I would describe as good characters in a bad anime. They share a similar feel, with young protagonists who are rather helpless on their own, and must learn to rely on each other. The plots unfortunately make little sense and there are few surprises.
To make money, high school student Shinkurou Kurenai works for the secretive Benika as a "dispute mediator," acting to intervene in the disputes of clients – often violently. One day, Benika gives him a much different assignment: to protect Murasaki Kuhoin, a seven-year-old girl from the wealthy Kuhoin family. This turns out to be a more troublesome task than he expects, as Murasaki is spoiled, naive, and completely unaware of what life is like outside of the luxurious one she had previously. He also has no idea why Murasaki needs his protection, though he is slowly obtaining details from a well-informed classmate. Adding to his problems, Shinkurou still must continue to do his previous work for Benika and take care of his social relationships in school while protecting Murasaki, complicating his entire life. Nonetheless, as time passes, he and Murasaki grow close; however, trouble brews in the shadows as everyone - including Shinkurou - seems to be harboring secrets...
Functionally, both animes are quite different, with Gosick being more crime solving mystery based, and Kurenai more 'slice-of-life' based. However there seems to be some relatively thematic similarities.
Sharing the same voice actress for the female leads, Gosick's Victorique and Kurenai's Murasaki, despite their age differnce) seem more alike than just having the same ternse voice.
Both girls are dazzlingly endearing with their infectious personalities; having that droll and intellectual character mixed with the girlish earnestness and naivity.
Both Victorique and Murasaki are 'outcasts' from their elite family, and a large theme of both animes is reconciling and discovering their backgrounds and reasons for their behaviour.
Coupled with this, they both have a similar male leads who is thrown into the adventure, where their relationship between each other grows deeper, as well as grow themselves as they befriend and start to rely more on the people around them.
This recommendation feels a bit on a whim, with Gosick targeting a perhaps younger demographic, but the feel I get from both are similar, and if you've seen the above recommendations already, i think Kurenai or Gosick is worth a watch.
In the world of Prestal, Noble men perform noble deeds for noble purposes. All of this is performed under the careful gaze of the Guild, a race apart who live in cities in the sky. We see this world through the eyes of Claus Valca and Lavi Head, as their travels take us above, beyond and through Prestal, and their actions cause ripples that shall never fade.
While these series vastly differ in terms of storyline and such, the similarities exist through the relationship of older characters to the younger. In both series, young characters struggle with the coming-of-age maturity required of them when being thrown into tough situations to determine the future. Much at the same time, the older generation of previous wars/struggles have to ride back up and finish what they started so many years ago.
D'Eon is a French nobleman bent on serving his Divine Majesty Louis the XIV to the best of his abilities, following in the footsteps of his beloved sister Lia de Beaumont. However, his straight-forward role with the secret police is interrupted by the sudden death of his sister while on a diplomatic mission in foreign lands. In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake. D'Eon must ask himself what is the price of truth and who will pay it, as the French Revolution looms inevitably nearer.
Both GOSICK and Le Chevalier d'Eon are set in a historical era (Between World Wars and Revolutionary France respectively) and in French speaking countries (Fictional Sauville and France respectively). They both often take a dark tone while otherwise maintaining a light atmosphere. They both also blend gothic, European imagery with supernatural elements to create a very similar feel. GOSICK is lighter and less intense than the latter, however.
