Both shows are in the same genre. They are very similiar as both contain locked-room mysteries which are very brilliant and interesting. Both shows also focus on the relationships of the main characters. If you like one then you'll like the other.

Both are locked room murder mysteries taking place on an isolated island. And likewise in both the victim is a renowned genius with a male/female pair acting as amateur detectives. Both also culminate in a major twist at the end.

both contain locked room mysteries that occur in an isolated island. the murders in both series are really engaging, and in both two characters are trying to solve the case.

This anime is lighter and shinier than Kubikiri. But how they change into beautiful scenes while a character does a detective analysis is similar. The story flow is kind of similar too.
