10. Gosick

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.

Killing brings more killing, and revenge spawns more revenge. How will the 91-day story of these men guided by a tragic fate end?

Number of Episodes: 12

Release Year: 2016

Both are very much rooted in history, though Moriarty is slightly more far fetched. They have very immersive worlds that bring you to the era their stories take place in. Very good artwork, particularly the use of color. They also both have good soundtracks that fit the era and the mood, though Moriarty’s often feels a bit more “modern” and imagined. If you want a good character drama that shows events from multiple perspectives, give these a try.

Japan’s take on Sherlock Holmes. In both anime there are many crimes that must be solved by Sherlock (who is the main character Kabukichou), while he tries to catch the mastermind Moriarty (who is the main character Kabukichou Yuukoku). Both are pretty good, though Kabukichou has more comedy while Yuukoku is more serious. Kabukichou takes place in modern Japan while Yuukoku takes place in industrial England.

Number of Episodes: 23

Both have the characters conning people of higher standing in society. Episodic, though Great Pretender has stories spanning 5 or more episodes. Both come up with extremely clever schemes that aren’t exposed completely until they’re seen through (most times). Really nice artwork.

3. Psycho-Pass

Description: In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident’s mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they’re considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl’s judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.

Number of Episodes: 22

Release Year: 2012 – 2019

William’s and Makishima’s character design are almost the same and they’re both as excellent anti-heroes that you just can’t help but cheer for them. Both series are about crimes and injustice and psychological wars between two main rivals. Both are great crime suspense and meaningful quotes.

2. 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

Both have that same mystery feel to it and are pretty dark in their own ways; Moriarty does bad things for a good cause while Ciel does anything for his own reasons. They’re both clever and have intriguing allies, and give you a sense that there’s a lot more going on than the viewer is being told about. They’re also both based in England and are both of high class and well known.

1. Death Note

Description: Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality.

With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light’s actions will not go unchallenged…

Number of Episodes: 37

Release Year: 2006 – 2007

Moriarty and Death Note are similar in the fact that both anime focus on main protagonists with noble goals about improving the world, who end up using crime as a means to achieve those goals. In this regard, both anime deal with themes of morals and justice in an interesting and thought-provoking way, avoiding a black-or-white sense of morals in favor of a more nuanced storytelling.
