I liked Erased, although I had to drop it somewhere during its second act (not because I didn't like it, I just had too much stuff keeping me away from anime) and Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex. If you want a more traditional episodic series however, I recommend Detective Academy Q.

Hope this helps.

Higurashi is my fave. If you don't mind sitting through a couple seasons to get the whole story down.

There is always Ghost In The Shell but that doesn't really count I guess.

I wanna say Steam Detectives which is Neo Noir and Monster both are really damn good.

Cheesy, formulaic detective shows: Case Closed and Kindaichi, both on Crunchyrolll.

Plot mystery?

K. (yes, the title is just one letter).

A gang with superpowers is out for revenge because one of their members got murdered. There's a video showing this teenager killing him, but swears he didn't do it, and he doesn't remember it, so he has to prove his innocence. It gets really good around episode 5-6 so make sure to watch through that.
It's not on Crunchy, but it's on Hulu and Netflix. I recommend the dub, but if you really don't like dubs, the sub is good too. Both are filled with the best voice actors.

If you'd like your mystery with a side of kaiju, check out Kagewani.

Yes to Kagewani, horror/mystery and I recommend it.

The File of Young Kindaichi Returns is a pretty smart murder mystery series.

Mushi-shi deals with mysterious, half-living, unseen things called mushi and their effects on humans they come into contact with.

Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) could be considered a mystery/supernatural series.

Zetsuen no Tempest has some mystery and magic/fantasy elements.

Eden of the East is like a sci-fi/action/mystery series.

I'm sure there are a lot more which I haven't seen.

Monster - Dark/Mystery - It is one of my top anime/mangas in this category.
Hyouka - More of a slice of life mystery anime. Kids in a club etc.
