Spiral and Neuro are two detective anime which have twists: Spiral with an insidious and ongoing villain and Neuro with its demonic undertones. Both have a similar feel, though Spiral is a bit darker. I didn't care much for either of these, honestly... but if you liked one, you'd probably like the other too!

Monster

Monster

Dr Kenzo Tenma is a genius surgeon working in post-Cold War Germany who has a bright future ahead of him. He is admired by his colleagues, loved by his patients, and due to marry his boss' daughter, the beautiful Eva Heinemann. One day, when two patients in desperate need of emergency surgery are wheeled into his hospital, Tenma faces a terrible choice of saving the orphaned boy who came first or the mayor of Düsseldorf, whose recovery would raise the hospital's profile and boost his own career. Against the demands of his superior, Tenma does what he believes is right and saves the child. However, his decision not only damages his prospects, but unleashes a chain of events so horrific that it might have come from the depths of his worst nightmares. Laden with guilt, Tenma begins a journey across Germany in search of a formidable young man who will challenge his morals, his love for life, and his very sanity.

See beyond the average animation style in both of these shows, and you are treated to some deep thinking, twisted mysteries.

Most episodes are stand-alone, but all work towards the grand finale. Monster is much heavier going and more psychological, whilst Spiral may appeal to a wider audience.

Both main characters are struggling to fight against life, and the difficulties thrown at them from the protaganist. Further reading can be found in the excellent manga both are based on.

Detective Conan Movie 10: The Private Eyes' Requiem

Detective Conan Movie 10: The Private Eyes' Requiem

Kogoro, Conan and the rest of the gang have arrived at Miracle Land for a special and mysterious job. Upon their arrival, the client’s aide passes out a free park pass – a bracelet - to each of the kids and adults, and sends everyone but Conan and Kogoro on their way. Unfortunately for our heroes, the client is anything but kind; three detectives before them have been summoned to solve his mystery, and three detectives have been killed – via the explosive device in the bracelets – for not being able to solve it in time. Unless Conan and Kogoro use their powers of deduction to solve the mystery by the evening, they and all of their friends will die! They will be joined by Kaitou Kid and other familiar faces; can they discover the identity of the client and figure out the mystery in time?

Though I don't believe Spiral is a good recommendation for all things Conan, I definitely think it fits well with Movie 10. Both are detective dramas of course, but both also specifically have deadly consequences and are, at their hearts, thrillers. If you liked one, try out the other.

Kuroshitsuji

Kuroshitsuji

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

Both anime are detective stories and have a kind of fantasy. They have a lot of misteries and they'rre very fascinating. And all the characters are very interesting.
