Top 20 Most Popular Mystery Anime of All Time

Every year new anime works appear, which can be assigned to the mystery genre. But which series have been able to achieve the greatest international popularity so far? Here’s the list of Top 20 Best Mystery Anime of all time.

The Best Mystery Anime

The following ranking is based on the anime databases MyAnimeList and AniList. We looked at how many users added the various mystery anime to their list. The values are listed separately for both sides. Sequels, such as the second season of “Attack on Titan”, were excluded.

Unsurprisingly, the anime adaptation of the manga classic “Death Note” took first place. Close behind are the equally acclaimed series “Attack on Titan”, “Tokyo Ghoul” and “Erased: The Town Where Only I Am Missing”.
