The world of Detective Conan is relatively expansive, especially when you consider just how many episodes the series has produced. How are you supposed to find a show to follow up such an iconic anime series that has such a long shelf life? Let's rank the best recommendations for anime like Detective Conan, with the help of your votes!

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. Anime like Hell Girl may have more to do with sins and judgment in the afterlife, but most of the short stories portrayed throughout each episode are about justice being served in its own unique way. 

Here are our recommendations for anime like Detective Conan. Vote up to let us know which of these series you'd most recommend to other Detective Conan fans.
