Gosick

Gosick

In the early 20th century, Kazuya transfers to a prestigious academy as part of an exchange program between Japan and Saubure, a small European country. But while Kazuya would love to make friends and have a typical school life, the boy is shunned by his ghost story-loving peers who believe that he's a "Black Reaper" to be feared. 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.

both about young and genius girls who solve mysteries and the random guy who befriends them. if you like one you'd definitely like both because they're nearly identical.

alucard07 alucard07 says...

Both are about an intelligent girtl who seems to be a recluse but is found to be very intelligent. The girl solves mysteries in various ways and this amounts to a great start and a great story for the series. I loved Gosick and Kamisama no Memo-chou seems to be the next Gosick!

DarkEmerl123 DarkEmerl123 says...

Both series involve a boy that ends up solving cases with a young, genius girl. But while Gosick has a old-fashioned school/town setting, Kamisama no Memo-chou has a modern city setting. If you liked one, you will surely like the other.

Justaway Justaway says...

Both are about a young genius girls who lives as a shut-in until they befriend a boy who then helps them with their cases.

diclonius1 diclonius1 says...

Both are about a genius, young girl who meets a random guy and they solve plenty of cases. They're quite similar in many ways so if you liked one I'm sure you'll enjoy the other.

reina0nyao reina0nyao says...

If you liked Gosick,You'd also like Kamisama no Memou-chou and vice versa because they have a lot of common things,like a short girl who can solve cases.

mmag13 mmag13 says...

Both Gosick and Kamisama no Memo-chou involve a brilliiant young girl who is a bit of a shutin as the lead.  Gosick is more European in flair, while KnM is set in modern Japan, but both series involve the protagonists solving mysteries that have baffled people twice their age.  If you liked one of these series, be sure to check out the other one.

Bind Bind says...

Both of the series have similar settings where the protaganist is the assistant of a highly intelligent girl with a small body.

snivets snivets says...

Both of these shows revolve around an odd, imperious female lead who stays in her room all day, but is curiously able to solve mysteries with small amounts of information.

ShiiV ShiiV says...

Even though Gosick have a more clear story throughout the whole anime, and a more feeling one too, they are both similar in the way the caracters are presented.

Both animes feature a somewhat tsundure bossy female, who loves to solve different mysteries, and the male protagonist being something of a "servant" or "assistant" to the female.Gosick does however do a better job with making you feel something for the characters, you are quickly made hoping that things will go well etc etc. This without losing the focus on its terrific mystery solving, not leaving any details out so that you have the possibility (well if you do know som background facts) to solve the mystery on your own. Victorique (the female protagonist) also present the details in such a way that you are amazed by her (atleast I was).Kamisama no Memo-chou however, does a worse job with getting you involved with the characters. You somehow does not feel as worried for the characters as in Gosick. Kamisama no Memo-chou also lack the clear thread running through the entire anime, instead having a few independent mysteries. I would recommend Gosick in front of Kamisama no Memo-chou, though both animes are clearly worth seing of you like detective work and mysteries!  

Madoka Madoka says...

Both series focus on a girl who is quite the brains when it comes to solving mysteries. If your a NEET detective or just a Golden Fairy it's undiniable these two are alike. Both series have a similar style of progression, Gosick is based in the early 20th century whilst Kamisama no Memo-chou is a more modern setting, both tackle common crimes from murder to gangs and drugs, Both series feature quite serious cases and though Gosick is a little longer which offers it a few "laid back" chances they both do a amazing job and keeping you hooked into the mysteries. I watched Gosick first and recently Kamisama no Memo-chou and i must say, Memo-chou is basically Gosick in the modern day, they are a perfect match and both very enjoyable.

Durarara!!

Durarara!!

Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?

DarkEmerl123 DarkEmerl123 says...

Both series are in a modern city setting, and involve things like gangs, criminals, etc. While Durarara!! has many events loosely connected to each other with lots of characters involved, Kamisama no Memo-chou involves solving numerous mysteries.

Kurasan Kurasan says...

Both series depict a colorful variety of characters in a larger-than-life city. Each character is made with their own quirks, and the art styles are very similar.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of the anime focus on the hidden society within Tokyo's districts. With gangs and technology playing a major role in both anime, the feel is very similar. Though Durarara!! had a more supernatural element, I am sure that if you liked one, you'll like the other.

anosora anosora says...

The characters are very similar. Ordinary, useless male protagonists. But they develop to be more manly, and more responsible. You wouldn't believe it.

Don't be skeptic. Try something new!

neutrino neutrino says...

Both series are about a young man who manages to stumble upon a group of seemingly unrelated quirky people who function as a family or gang.  The art styles are reminiscent of each other, as are the narrative styles.

AltairSteam AltairSteam says...

When I saw the first episode of Kamisama... I thought "new Durarara!!". Plot is similar: young guy comes to the big city and meets a lot of... very interesing people. Also we have a strange group: in DRRR!! are Dollars, in Kamisama... - NEET's. Of course, Durarara!! is more supernatural, but both of them have a characteristic urban climate.

discospider discospider says...

Both series revolve around what appears to be at least regular guys who get involved in some mysteries and an underground world eccentric characters.

krukky krukky says...

I agree with the guys before me. These two animes have a really similar feel to them and are both about life in the big city with its numerous and differing characters.

GrondXIII GrondXIII says...

Both involve protagonists using gangs to improve quality of life for those around them and to solve problems. They also work hard and earn the respect of those around them. Quite a few querky characters and hidden plot suprises in both series as well.

hotspot hotspot says...

Both anime involve a cast of characters, who live in this big city. Many different things are happening, and in some cases, gangs and the mafia run wild.

They both have a similar feel.

KarmicFairy KarmicFairy says...

Both of the main characters are very similar, and there is an ensemble of interesting characters. Both deal with city life with gangs and the underworld although Durarara has a mystical element to it. If you like one, its a good chance you'll enjoy the other.

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

There is a high emphasis on NEETs in both of these anime. While Eden has a little broader setting, Alice's network (Memo-chou) reminded me of the Eden of the East program. There are other similarities plotwise, and I suspect that if you liked one, you'll like the other.

wordsphoenix wordsphoenix says...

Both shows have some focus on NEETs, and they also share an overall feeling of mystery. Interesting characters have to follow trails to discover the truth, whatever that may be, in each, and there's some nice backstory development for them as well.

student20 student20 says...

Both are set in cities and involve mysteries. Eden of the East is centered around one big mystery, as opposed to several smaller ones like Kamisama no Memochou. But there is a similar feeling to the two anime.

Sorry - there's no lilocon genius in Eden, lol.

Hyouka

Hyouka

"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!

Both Kamisama no Memochou and Hyouka involve groups of people who solve mysteries together. While Hyouka is more grounded in reality, both are involving and great to watch.

Kurenai

Kurenai

To make money, high school student Shinkurou Kurenai works for the secretive Benika as a "dispute mediator," acting to intervene in the disputes of clients – often violently. One day, Benika gives him a much different assignment: to protect Murasaki Kuhoin, a seven-year-old girl from the wealthy Kuhoin family. This turns out to be a more troublesome task than he expects, as Murasaki is spoiled, naive, and completely unaware of what life is like outside of the luxurious one she had previously. He also has no idea why Murasaki needs his protection, though he is slowly obtaining details from a well-informed classmate. Adding to his problems, Shinkurou still must continue to do his previous work for Benika and take care of his social relationships in school while protecting Murasaki, complicating his entire life. Nonetheless, as time passes, he and Murasaki grow close; however, trouble brews in the shadows as everyone - including Shinkurou - seems to be harboring secrets...

Both are about a young man who is suddenly thrust into an entirely different world, one that involves the care of a young girl.  There are also mysteries to solve, and fights to get into, but the overall focus is the young man's transformation into an adult.

Madoka Madoka says...

You might wonder why i have liked a serious detective series with a comedy series. Well, whilst milky holmes mainly uses their front as a detective more for comedy whilst Alice is the real deal i do believe the series have some small simularities which a certain audience might enjoy.

Milky holmes, though jokes left right and center still has it's moments, where as though again supernatural creates that detective feeling. The series still holds foundation (normally in the end) of a dectective series, so if you like detectives but fancy a laugh when watching, milky holmes might be your thing.

Memo-chou, though more serious and based on real mysteries which actually hold feeling to the real world we live in (oppisite to supernatural) still hasn't it's somewhat smaller moments of comedy,So if you feel like a little less laughs and a bit more serious you might like Memo-chou.

I seperated them due to their differences which though seem oppisite, in a sence do pull together.

Both anime involve a group of characters, all apart of a detective agency. They go out into a big city, solving mysteries. They face many different opponents, such as thieves and the mafia.

Having started Trickster first (Since Heaven's Memo Pad came out years prior), I instantly got a Trickster vibe from HMP.
