Hey, guys welcome back to Kaizetsu.com. Today we are going to provide you the list of Anime which are very similar to anime named Gosick.
Short introduction to 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.
10. Ikoku Meiro no Croisée (Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth)
Description: In the 19th century, a Japanese girl named Yune arrives in Paris to work at the Enseignes du Roy. There she meets Claude Claudel, a blacksmith who makes street signs. Caught in a new cultural experience, both Yune and Claude learn from each other while they try to keep the shop open despite the declining customers. Once a popular marketplace, many nearby businesses are closing as they are engulfed by the waves of change. Experience culture shock at its cutest in Croisee in a Foreign Labyrinth.
Number of Episodes: 12
Release Year: 2011
Both series deal with a Japanese person adapting to life in turn-of-the-century Europe. Gosick is a fair bit heavier with its mystery plots and intrigue whereas Ikoku Meiro no Croisée is typically lighthearted and slice-of-life-y, but the fish-out-of-water character aspects and moments of unanticipated cultural clashes are consistant between both and provide ample similarities throughout.
9. Umineko no Naku Koro ni (Umineko: When They Cry)
Description: In the year 1986, eighteen members of the Ushiromiya family head to Rokken Island where Kinzo, the elderly head of the household, will soon choose one of them as his successor. A portrait of the Golden Witch Beatrice greets them as they arrive at the family mansion, along with a disturbing epitaph: she will be resurrected on the ninth twilight after a number of bloody sacrifices. Unfortunately for the group, the statements come true, and soon the carnage begins. Will anybody walk away from the ominous island, or are their destinies due to be forever ruled by Beatrice?
Number of Episodes: 26
Release Year: 2009
Both of these anime involve a very similar style. The clothing worn by the characters is very Victorian age, one series taking place during such an era and the other being influenced by said era. Both involve mystery, though Umineko runs more long the lines of actually having supernatural overtone, while Gosick has a supernatural undertone.
8. Pandora Hearts
Description: On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius’s fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more – thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy – he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person’s body. However, there’s a catch – in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain’s power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice – a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization – a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice’s lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there’s a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.
Number of Episodes: 25
Release Year: 2009
Both of these animes have the main characters as a guy and a girl. Though Pandora Hearts has to do a lot with getting rid of demons from the Abyss, while Gosick only deals with mysteries, they reminds each other. In each anime, the guy main character has to go find the girl main character and ends up saying their name 20 million times, then yelling it, then saying that they are friends. There is the presence of love in both animes, but it’s definitely not the main plot, in fact, it practically brushes the tip of both animes. They seem to have nothing in common at first, but if you look at the depths of the anime, you will see the similarities.
Description: 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…
Number of Episodes: 11
Release Year: 2011
Both are mystery anime which are quite entertaining, they both have assistants and also they add a sort of supernatural feel to both of them.
6. Detective Conan (Case Closed)
Description: Shinichi Kudo is a famous teenage detective who idolizes Sherlock Holmes and solves difficult cases with ease. One day, after a fun day at the theme park with his childhood friend Ran, Shinichi witnesses something suspicious and is knocked unconscious. What’s worse, he’s forced to take a deadly, experimental drug that shrinks his body to the age of seven. To protect himself and his loved ones from those who may want to finish the job, Shinichi dons the new name Conan Edogawa and moves in with Ran, whose father is a famous detective, in hopes of closing cases that can lead him to the men in black. But little does Shinichi know just how dangerous these men, and their cause, are…
Number of Episodes: 1000+
Release Year: 1996 – ?
Both series are about mysteries/cases which are ultimately solved by the protagonist, who are both highly intelligent people who possess a keen eye for details. Most cases in Detective Conan can be solved pretty effortlessly, while in Gosick they are more difficult causing you to think more. However, no matter the level of difficulty of the cases, they’re always pulled off in a unique & clever way so that even if you know who the culprit is you are still baffled as too how they managed to pull it all off in the first place. Also in both series, although the protagonists solve the cases all the credit goes to someone who couldn’t solve a case for their life. Both series are really amazing in their own ways, so I recommend you check them both out.
5. Ookami to Koushinryou (Spice and Wolf)
Description: Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.
Number of Episodes: 25 + OVA
Release Year: 2008 – 2009
“Spice and Wolf” and Gosick are both centered on Europe in the past. In both series a boy meets a “wise wolf” who isn’t supposed to move from where they are but the boy takes her out and shows her the outside world. As the series goes on the 2 grow more attached to each other but encounter great problems that may separate them. The characters in both series are very alike and the feeling both give are extremely similar to the other.
4. Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
Description: In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.
Number of Episodes: 24
Release Year: 2008
Kuroshitsuji is set in the Victorian Era and Gosick is set between WWI and WWII, with a few similarities in plots such as a “war that will involve the whole world”. Gosick starts off with Victorique solving mysteries and then getting into main plot. Kuroshitsuji is much the same, with Ciel completing various missions for the queen at the start. These two are also used as models or dolls; Victorique as a gothic loli, and Ciel dressed in adorable costumes. They have a loyal black haired companion that would give anything to serve them. These two anime have various dark themes to them, like the occult and smuggling, but make easy viewing for most audiences. I’d say give them both a go, since are also some key differences that keep both titles fresh.
3. Kamisama no Memochou (Heaven’s Memo Pad)
Description: Narumi Fujishima is an ordinary high school boy who is isolated from his classmates. When he reluctantly joins the gardening club and meets the reclusive, genius detective named Alice and her band of detectives known as the NEETs, Alice hires Narumi as an assistant and puts him to work solving the strange mysteries of Angel Fix, an illegal drug that makes people go crazy. Little does he know it could put him and Ayaka in serious trouble.
Number of Episodes: 12
Release Year: 2011
According to MAL, Gosick ended on the very day Kamisama started airing. Both of these anime feature reclusive girls who happen to solve the mysteries around them by gathering the “knowledge” around them and simulating the fragments so that they will eventually come too. Gosick is set between the two World Wars and Kamisama no Memochou is in a modern setting. While the girl in Gosick is actually older then a young girl, both girls have qwirks, one for sweets, the other for stuffed animals. Each one is also very moody and can be disagreeable when they don’t get their ways.
Description: “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!
Number of Episodes: 22
Release Year: 2012
“There are things that are really mysterious, so why not investigate these pieces and put them all together.” Both of the series follows a main character, who has high intelligence, very logical, and beyond critical thinking, where they solve these mysterious facts and give out there final results. Also, they are somewhat emotionless, who rarely crack a smile, but has a caring side when looking out his/her friend(s).
1. Dantalian no Shoka (The Mystic Archives of Dantalian)
Description: After his grandfather’s untimely death, Hugh Anthony Disward visits the estate of his inheritance where he discovers a library that’s out of this world. Embodying the archive is Dalian, a clever girl with a sharp tongue as biting as her sweet tooth. Circumstance leads to necessity, and she teaches Huey how to harness the power within—a handy trick to learn, seeing as it’s the only way to subdue the monsters brought forth by magical works of literature.
