Do you like unraveling confusing murder mysteries? Then these are the anime for you. Watch a group of characters become stranded in a mansion where murders then take place. Both are fun in their unique ways. Book of Murder is humorous and somewhat ridiculous, while Umineko presents a serious, increasing tension.

The plot of both shows are based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. That is, the setting involves a group of people stuck in a physical space (an island, in the case of Umineko, and a mansion, in the case of Book of Murder), murder ensues with the member of the party dying one at a time. The culprit is assumed to be someone in the group. 

Both shows are gothic style and supernatural.

Things change one day when Kazuya wanders to the top of the library and discovers a lush botanical garden, and a beautiful, small, blonde-haired girl named Victorique who rarely leaves the building and is fascinated by unsolved mysteries. Together, the two develop a budding friendship and take on many chilling and dangerous cases that even the famous local detective Grevil can't solve.

Mystery. Someone already recommended Black Butler, not sure if anyone has recommended Book of Circus yet, but both have a well thought out mystery/mysteries.
