Synopsis:

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.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Kurahashi has never been the same since the hallucinations started. His condition is not medical in nature, and only seems to be triggered by an antique glass which shows him things he never would wish to see. For Kurahashi, figuring out the mystery of the Petit Cossette that appears to him in his waking dreams is a matter of life or death... and his sanity...

The artwork is similar. I would say that both are 'pretty' animes. They both have a sinister side to them. The lead lady's are both in Lolita style costume. Gosick is set in the early 1900s and Le Portrait De Petit Cossette has an similar age feel to it. Though Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is a short anime, I really think you would enjoy both.

In both anime, the cast solves different mysterious murder/theft cases, but at the same time, there is a plot and a main enemy. If you liked Neuro or Gosick, you might want to check out the other.

Pandora Hearts

Pandora Hearts

On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it.  Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.

I think they are somewhat the same. both european theme, a not so love story. Mysterious. And they are both great anime. The difference is I am not satisfied at the ending of Pandora's. But still I like them both :)

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?

This may seem to be a strange pairing at first, but there are actually a lot of similarities between these shows.  In each show, fairy tales and stories are more than they appear to be and come to life in very real ways.  Both shows take a while to become spectacular, but they get there, and the early stuff ends up being very important later on.  And finally, in each show the characters grow, change, and become better peoplen (and much more interesting to watch) as their relationship develops.  These are both very special shows and are incredibly deep, and I feel that both are masterpieces.

Samurai 7

Samurai 7

In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?

RedCrossRobbery

Both series have a subtle undertone of children paying for the sins of the fathers, as it were. Old struggles and factions arise again, and have to be finally fixed for good.
