In post-war Japan, the nation remains unsettled and crime is as big a problem as ever. Despite his sharp mind and keen deductions, "Defeated Detective" Shinjurou Yuuki frequently loses out to his rival, Rinroku Kaishou, whose information network has previously aided many police investigations. However, in spite of his poor reputation, Shinjurou continues to work on every case he's recruited to with his mysterious assistant Inga. With Inga's power to transform into a being capable of forcing any person to truthfully answer one question put to them, the pair uses everything at their disposal to get to the bottom of each crime and reveal the true culprit – even if the reality of who solved the case never reaches the public...
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"?
Both feature mysteries with supernatural crimesolvers. Inga and Shinjuurou's relationship reminded me of Neuro and Yako somewhat, and both series take a dark look at the mystery genre.
Un-Go and Neuro are extremely similar. A detective solves cases with the help of a bizarre, supernatural helper. They have a similar feel too - a PERFECT recommendation for each other.
Both are about normal human detectives that get help solving mysteries from a very quirky supernatural being. Reverse the roles of male and female for each shows detective and helper and they are pretty much the same show! check em both out.
Both of the animes are pretty much the same. Neuro and Inga both feed off on mysteries, souls and stuff. Should check the other one out if you're into this anime.
These two share a supernatural, powerful sidekick, but the nature of the protagonist is very different. If you're after more of a comic touch, go for Majin Tantei; if you're looking for a cooler, intellectual (but darker) main character, go for Un-Go.
Although I felt Neuro was much better, Un-Go was not too bad and they both really are good recommendations to each other.
You have what you may call a "monster" or a "demon" as part of the detective group along with a normal human. The duo solve mysteries for their own special purposes while meeting new people and joining forces with others.
Both these series involve mystery and supernatural aspects. The main character solves a different mystery about every episode with the aid of a supernatural partner, who tends to serve as an ace up the sleve for apprehending the suspects in the end. Un-Go is more focused on the mysteries, though, while Dantalian no Shoka is more about the supernatural.
Both of these anime are about mysteries and a pair who go around solving them. In Dantalian no Shoka there is Huey and Dalian, and in Un-Go there is Yuuki and Inga. :)
These series each focus around a set of mysteries that slowly begin to tie into one another. Furthermore, the main character in each is assisted by someone of a supernatural variety. If you like mixing the supernatural and mystery, these work well together.
Un-Go and Dantalian no Shoka are both series focusing on mystery. In each, the main character is assisted by a sidekick with unusual powers. So they don't go about solving the mystery in a conventional, straightfoward manner, but with the help of said abilities. If you liked Un-Go, be sure to check out DnS (and vice versa).
Saitou Yakumo is a young man with a very special gift: he can see the souls of the dead and communicate with them. When the aloof student isn’t duping his fellow classmates out of their money with fake card tricks, he takes on paranormal cases that pique his interest. Making use of his unique abilities, logical mind and his contacts within the police, Yakumo strives to solve each supernatural case he takes on and bring those responsible to justice. But when the youthful detective becomes the target of a sinister duo can he get to the bottom of their scheme before he is dragged into a world of darkness and hatred?
Both shows are about male detectives and have a very supernatural air to them. Both have an underlying plot to them but are still episodic enough to enjoy any episode for the thrill of mystery. Yakumo is not nearly as interesting or awesome as Un-Go is but you would appreciate one if you enjoyed the other.
These series each focus around a detective wrapped in a mystery that involves a great number of supernatural elements. Also, each series starts off somewhat episodic and becomes less so as they progress. This makes each series a good fit with the other.
Both series revolves around men that solve mysteries with a female lead that is somewhat annoying to the male leads. The mystery built up by both series is intrigeuing while both protagonist are never consumed by the darkness they encounter.
Both focus around a male lead with some supernatural ability to help him solve his cases without fail. Both really focus around the whodunnit of it all.

In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
It both series, you have the lead/s, in Code Geass Lelouch and in Un-Go Inga and Shinjurou that use intricate plots to bring down their foes instead of weapons (mostly). The most striking similarity is Ingra's "eye" ability to make a person answer 1 question, and Lelouch's Geass to make people do 1 thing.
As far as personality goes, Lelouch is sort of split into two with Inga and Shinjirou. While Inga is sort of crazy and has the eye power, Shinjirou is smart and calm. So far, I really like Un-Go, and Code Geass is one of my top favorites, so watch them both, no matter what you like.
Has someone done something to hurt you or the ones you love? Are you seeking revenge? Rumor has it that there’s a website that can service your needs. Titled “Hotline to Hell”, it contains a form that can be accessed only at midnight. Type in a name, and the Hell Girl will carry out your bidding – for a price. For though your appetite for revenge will be satisfied, your soul will also be condemned to hell after you die. But who is the Hell Girl, and does she care whether your revenge is justified? Apparently not, as long as she gets more souls…
The mystery solving cases made me think the two are a like. The para-normal in this serie is personified by the Inga character as it is Hellgirl in the other one. This plus the rest of the distant background made me think those two anime are very similar in tone and in vibe.
