Death Note

Death Note

Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...

DeathCrunch

Staring incredibly charismatic and devious liars as lead characters, who also happen to be the spitting image of each other, playing both the criminal and the detective.Changing sides and dropping Xantos Gambit's like no-ones business. Mystery and suspense abound.Death Note deals with the criminal pretending to be a detective. Switch, the undercover detective.

Why recommend the two? The first reason is the incredible resemblance of the characters and the mood that is maintained throughout both the OVA Switch and the series Death Note. Simmilar animation, camera angles, dramatization, mystery, suspence, the mix of both realistic detective work and logic and the supernatural have had me thinking about one all the time while watching the other. Although Switch is shorter and nothing is explaned at the end (but that is exactly how Death Note started), and it also has implied features of fan-service at some points, nevertheless it is still able to parry the unbeatable Death Note and still make a decent match.

Both Death Note and Switch are very similar. When I first saw the opening of Switch, it reminded me of Death Note. Then when I got a bit further into the anime I realized that they both are really similar with the character designs and how the characters were introduced. Both series have a similar feel to it when you watch it and both left me hanging.

Both are about two guys that fight crime, and the guys are pretty into each other (It's much more obvious in Fake, though).

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro

The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed "suicide"?

Switch and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro are simmilar in many ways, so I'll just name some of them: both series are a mix of mystery, detectives, suspence and supernatural; both series hide secrets that aren't revealed even at the end (and they have to do with the supernatural); both include psychological thinking, etc. Although maybe you'll find Neuro a bit more random and more fond to the supernatural side of things, unlike Switch which is more consirned about the pure detective research, the bottom line is, it is supernatural detective work and it is interesting to the point of not breathing. ^.^
