Recommendation for something with a good mystery?

I've just seen PERSONA Trinity soul. I like how the show doesn't focus entirely on fights between PERSONAS and that there's enough time to develop the characters. The mystery (though revealed a bit too slowly for my taste) is nicely wrapped in that dark atmosphere. The other one I could think of that's close to this is Zegapain.

Can someone give me some recommendations close to these two shows?

Ergo Proxy perhaps, dark, the mystery gets stretched and theres character development the only bad thing i must add is that it can be boring if you watch too much

thanks for the suggestions. I'm starting on Ghost Hound. Have seen a bit of Shion no Ou and don't like it. Seen Darker than Black already. Higurashi is too violent for me. Haven't checked Ergo Proxy yet.

more suggestions welcome.

The violence in higurashi is quite not the main focus and... hardly that guro/gory once you passed through the first 2 arcs tough (5th can be a bit surprising). I don't say it is all kiddy, but it is not really atrocious and nowhere more shocking than persona, to be quite honest (and yes, I know they are in a complete different league).
