English title is "Psychic Detective Yakumo"
Well this here is a Mystery show and has a little bit of fantasy, but it doesnt take the fantasy part to the extreme like Umineko, but on its first episode it didnt have too much detective work involved, but Im pretty sure this is going to be a pretty sweet series if your a fan of Mysteries, not to mention the main character is pretty likable.

Heres a Synopsis: he story is about a college student, Yakumo Saitou who was born with different eye colors. His red left eye gave him a special ability to see ghosts and spirits. He believes ghosts and spirits are bound to earth because of a certain 'cause' and simply by eliminating that 'cause' will those spirits rest in peace. Being asked for help by Haruka Ozawa, together they began the investigation.

I will always enjoy a good mystery anime, and this seems like it can fit the bill just fine. Im not saying go out of your way to see this, but if you have time, I suggest you check it out.

Talk about the anime, episode, anything in general

I was wondering if comparing this to Shiki would be a good example, but Im not quite so sure yet

I've read the manga and enjoyed that. So, after I watch the 1st episode, I'll get back to you.

Edit: So, it's only the 1st episode and it already differs from the manga.. which.. kinda irks me. Only a little though, 'cause it was still a good first episode. The music is good, thumbs up for that and I think the voices fit the characters well. Another thumps up. So far, I like it. And I hope it continues to be this good.

And, I would compare it more to Ghost Hunt than Shiki (and amusingly enough, both were done by Fuyumi Ono *laughs*).

I liked it the characters are likeable (and not totally airheaded) and the concept of the story is interesting. It reminds me of Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro..
