The noir feel of Bungou Stray Dogs paired with the detectives' supernatural abilities always makes the show such a delight to watch. It's different, interesting and certainly has a mystery behind each episode with an expansive plot that silently grows in the background. Once you've finished a series like this, it's hard to find other anime like Bangou Stray Dogs. Luckily, there are plenty of series that will help with your healing process!
Older series like Baccano! have the same kind of mystery and supernatural feel that Bungou Stray Dogs gave with a very different kind of story. Peculiar characters like Szilard and Ennis are relatively strange, but somehow relatable just like leading characters Osamu and Atsushi are. If you're looking for something that's a little more off-road, with a different approach than a detective based story, there are still plenty of shows that hold similar elements; Durarara!! is an excellent example. While it's not about detectives exactly, it still has a strange story that involves multiple people who find themselves in a web of a story that involves them all one way or another. It also doesn't hurt when a few of these have an appealing art style, much like Bungou Stray Dogs had.
