Kindaichi can easily be compared to Conan; both characters solve the most difficult cases with ease. However, beyond the general recommendation, the Kindaichi movie and Conan movie 12 are both mysteries involving the fine arts and classical music. Liked one? Give the other a try.
Both movies are about detectives that must solve a murder mysters that involves preforming arts. Kindaichi is a tad more bloody than Conan but both are sure to please. You don't really need to have seen their series to enjoy these movies at all.

Both movies are pretty weird in the situations that occur to the characters in it. They both have an idol theme to them as well. Both have an interesting amount of murder gore to them too. Perfect Blue might mess with your head a little but more but I highly suggest you check one out if you liked the other.
