Despite not being even a fraction of the length your favorite detective series has, there's quite a few anime series out there like Detective Conan that have exceptional storylines perfect for your next binge session. Detective oriented stories such as Detective School Q or Psychic Detective Yakumo are great follow-ups with their distinct similarity, but there are also other series that go beyond traditional justice.
