Detective Conan Movie 10: The Private Eyes' Requiem

Detective Conan Movie 10: The Private Eyes' Requiem
  • Movie (1 ep x 111 min)
  • 2006

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.

Kaze no Yojimbo

Kaze no Yojimbo

George Kodama comes to the sity of Sagaru to solve a mystery from his past; his only aid takes the form of a single clue, a name: Araki Genzou. He arrives in Sagaru to find an ailing city controlled by two opposing factions, and quickly becomes mired in the conflict. These two factions, the Tanakura and Ginzame groups, wage war while George searches for his past, paying his way with work as a bodyguard. He is clever and deadly in combat, but can he alone save the city of Sagaru and still find his own answers?

Spiral and Kaze no Yojimbo are similar in that both Ayumu and George are mired in a mystery where it seems absolutely everyone involved is trying to hide something. (Each, incidentally, searching for information regarding their brothers) They may go about said mysteries in very different ways otherwise - Spiral with an arc-based mind games setup, KnJ with mafia politics - but if you liked the general dynamic of one, go ahead and give the other a go.

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.

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!

i'd really recomend these two series together only for the patient persons that keep trying to understand what's going to happend before it really does happend...they're really both mindtwisters where something complicated is bound to happen but in the end it always proves only something simple was to be done to solve everything...again if you do not like guessing what's going to happen in an anime u can still watch them since they are excelent anime nontheless
