After failing his college entrance exams, 18 year-old Tsukasa Mizugaki is offered a position at the renowned SAI Corporation due to his father’s connections. SAI Corporation is known for its production and management of androids that possessed human emotions called Giftia. Tsukasa’s position is in the terminal service department where the main job is to recover Giftias that are close to their expiration, a graveyard department in every sense. To make matters worse, Tsukasa is ordered to work with Isla, a female Giftia who is never given any responsibility other than serving tea to co-workers.
- Both have a kuudere loli who isn't normal
- Both have a male lead who is a newbie and a nice guy
- Both have a certain organization the main characters are apart of
- Both have certain supernatural/sci-fi elements
- Both have a sort of way to "not exist" that isn't really dying (Plamemo has "retrievals" and Angel Beats has "disappearing")
- Both have tearjerkers
The two protagonists (both male and female) from both series are a lot alike. The art style is very similar also. Most importantly though, both are very emotionally grabbing, even being similar in how and why they are emotionally grabbing.
Story feels very similar between the two. Has a very "bittersweet" feeling to it, and I love it. If you've seen Angle Beats!, watch Plastic Memories, and viceversa.
The feelings the animes want to transmit are quite similar.
The style of the two is also closely related.
Angel Beats! has more action in it.
Both have shitty (sad/depressing) ending that will most likely make you cry.
Otherwise both of it is 5/5.
Both series are rollercoasters of emotions. They have plenty of comedic moments, but they also have plenty of sad/tragic moments. While the settings and plots of the two series are different, I think if you like one you will like the other. Just make sure you have plenty of tissues ready when you watch either of these series (because you will cry).
If I am correct, Plastic Memories and Angel Beats! were made by the same creator. These two are very similar in how they display human emotions, therefore they both fit under the psychological category. Both of them do a good job mixing the supernatural genre with comedy, romance, and psychology. The biggest similarity these two animes have are their endings.The endings are pretty emotional, and I guarantee if one of these made you cry, then so will the other. The endings will also make you see life from a different perspective.
9.5/10 for both
FEELS FEELS AND DID I FORGET FEELS?!?!?!But seriously, these animes remind me of each other so much. Both have a protagonist who is new to the... Companies lets say. He then makes friends with everyone in the workplace. Then, he gets the woman protagonist to like him. Slowly they build a relationship that everyone ships. Those are the similarities I found.
The differences are mainly the settings and what happens through out. The setting of angel beats is a rather purgatory type place. While Plastic memories took place in a futuristic era.
I know this is a short recommendation but trust me, these animes are very similar. Dont forget your tissues ! ^~^
Both have very similar main characters:
Isla and Kanade are both quiet/cute/quirky individuals and Tsukasa and Otonashi are similar in the ways interact with Isla/Kanade
Both are likely to take you on an emotional rollercoaster too.
They both have the same sadness that fulfills you at the same time
both will f*ck your sensitive little emotions up. Makes sense to get f*cked twice. And also the minimum characters of a recommendation is 100, so i'm writing this
Very few adolescent boys and girls have an onset of special abilities. Yuu Otosaka is one such man who uses his ability unbeknownst to others in order to lead a satisfying school life. Then one day, a girl named Nao Tomori suddenly appears before him. Their encounter reveals the destiny for wielders of special abilities.
They are produced by the same studio, and the feelings they want to transmit are similar; style also in somehow linked between these 2 animes...
Jun Maeda was the man behind both anime and the similarities are truly evident. Some of the character designs are similar, the story includes elements of both normal school life and the supernatural. The story structure is focused on character development into a major twist into dramatic resolution. If you're looking for "another season" of either anime Angel Beats/Charlotte are really complimentary.
Both shows are made by the same creators. They have similar openings and make you feel the same way. They are both funny shows which have their share of sadness at the end. In Charlotte, they even make an Angel Beats reference once in episode 7.
Both shows are made by the same creators, and share the supernatural vibe. They are also very emotional and really easy at getting you hooked.
Charlotte is on its way to becoming a classic, as is Angel Beats! Intelligent, funny, and emotional.
Both animes are original ones without a manga or light novel made before, the creator (Maeda Jun) wrote the plot himself in both series, the 2 of them are about teenagers, where some among them have superpowers, and the MOST important to me, there´s a lot of drama in both series.
Excuse me for my bad english, I'm still learning it...
My friends and I call Angel beats "da feels" as it is a vary emotional show charlotta is simallar in that it has a lot of emotianal moments and a lot of great humor that works well to balance out the deep moments. both shows delv into heart wrenching backstories that are "enough to make a grown man cry... but not THIS man! get back in there tear." I'm somewhat picky on art style and if you liked charlottes art then youd like angel beats art.
the music of both shows are also very enjoyable to listen to I am partial to angel beats though.
Charlotte was also created by the same studio that made angel beats so right there you know these shows with have some good sad moments.
Angel Beats is essentially a more meaningful and developed version of Charlotte, which, towards the end, showed a lot of promise but failed to deliver. On the other hand, Angel Beats, which has better developed characters and a similar artwork, leaves the audience with a satisfying ending that is not far-fetched or rushed which results from a gradual crescendo in the plot.
They both give off a similar feeling.
A boy being thrust intoa world he finds baffling, with some comedic interruptions. Both boys are pulled into a particular group of people, and have to work with this group to survive.
Angel Beats has a similar feel to Charlotte, with good character development but without the deus ex-machina power at the end of it all. Angel Beats is also similar in tone, with it being rather touching yet sad at the end of it all; the strong bittersweet ending that is rarely executed in anime.
The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!
The main characters have the same personality, Yuri is bossy like Haruhi, but none of them have bad intentions; and Otonashi is incredulous as Kyon. This personalities are so similar that I can assure you that if you liked one, you would like the other.
Both animes are centered on school students, specifically a club with "particular" and fun activities, one named SOS and the other SSS (even tho this one keeps changing).
You'll enjoy this if you liked this, got a good similar weird plot line and it's just thouroughly epic.
What can I say? Two essentric egotistically female protogonist that warm the viewer hearts! Meanwhile we enjoy the crazy adventures along the way. Hell even the main characters have strong similarity in the the design, leadership style, outfits and looks. SSS club, S.O.S. Brigade...same difference.
Both anime have a prominent and strong protagonist, that is Suzumiya and Yuri, which is i personally like the most. Eventhough I can say "Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" is one of the best anime I had watch due it's unpredictable storylines and actions, I can also recommends Angel Beats! because of it's humour and moral lessons (which is also exist in Suzumiya). Overall, I recommend all the readers to watch both if they are looking for some cool and humorous contemporary anime.
Angel Beats! and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya both offer surprisingly though-provoking overtones. Haruhi delves more into the philisophical implications of having someone who is, for lack of a better term, omnipotent, even though she doesn't realize it. Angel Beats, on the other hand, deals more with life after death and finding something to live for. Both anime have great animation syle. That is to say that both offer consistent and beautiful animation. Both have great soundtracks as well. And finally, both have good English voice casts, if you cannot handle subtitles (something I mention only because I know quite a few people who get headaches from reading subtitles or have issues with reading them fast enough)If you're a fan of either Yuri or Haruhi, the other will strike a familiar chord. This isn't because of something like an animation studio re-using a character (the two are very different, both in style and personality) but the overwhelming prescence of each character struck me as quite similar. Especially when they are barking orders.
Feel like AB takes a lot form these series, if you liked charachters in one of those two the other have them also, personalitties are so similar that one could say rip off.
The main characters are incredible similar: Yuri is just like Haruhi, and Otonashi is just like Kyon. The outfits, the animation, the clubs (SOS Brigade, SSS...)... a lot of things in Angel Beats! resemble Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu and visa-versa. If you liked one, there's very little chance you won't enjoy the other (:
Haruhi and Yuri have the same attitude and they both are seemingly eccentric. The plot also has similarities since they both have comedy and romance in them, but Angel beats focuses more on romance unlike Melancholy of haruhi Suzumiya wherein the anime focuses more on the comedy part. Either ways, you'll love watching them both
A young woman quietly falls to the earth, escorted by a solitary crow. This sort of dream, as many other before have dreamed, comes just before being reborn as a Haibane, a charcoal-winged angel. On the outskirts of the walled-in city lies Old Home, a haven for Haibane to study, live, and learn, while waiting for their chance to ascend to the heavens and escape the confines of their new world. Rakka is the newest inhabitant of Old Home who wants nothing more than to remember her past and discover the secrets of her kind. Together with Reki, Kuu and plenty of other new friends, Rakka will laugh, explore, and search for the meaning of their existence in the process.
Though Haibane is much slower and considered to be more 'intelligent'/thought provoking, it and Angel Beats are incredibly similar series. Both revolving around a group of young people who've died and must deal with their new lives. A good rec for sure.
Angel Beats! tries to deliver a similar experience to Haibane Renmei. However, it doesn't lend itself to be taken seriously enough to actually achieve it. If you like the whole concept of a loosely defined limbo-like existence, and what that entails to the characters in the show, you will enjoy Haibane Renmei. Similar, yet very different, both shows share a mysterious feeling surrounding their respective worlds, and characters trying to understand them.
Each of these series has an extremely similar setting, taking place in some sort of afterlife, with beings that have to come to terms with the fact that they've died. Beyond that, each series seems to have some grievances against whatever powers put them there/know why they were put there and what is going on. Also, each story has an extremely similar plot line, although how the plot is given and progressed is extremely different.
Angel Beats and Haibane Renmei open in similar circumstances. The characters find themselves in an artificially small world, implied to be the afterlife. Moving beyond the situation, the plot in both shows centers on personal themes of coming to terms with both their present situation and the nature of their previous lives. Despite their differences, they raise quite similar questions, and follow them through to similar conclusions.
Both these series deal with a life after death and rebirth concept as their main story plots. While slightly different in the approaches both series work to give the viewers a sense of mystery, confussion, and eventually hopeful resolution. The end really isn't the end, but trully a new beginning.
Haibane Renmei has the same sort of setting as Angel Beats: a world that seems to be transitional between life and whatever comes after. In terms of mood, Haibane Renmei is much more subdued than Angel Beats. It is quite slow-paced, and is not an emotional roller coaster. The whole show is very intimate, and I think you can form connections with the characters in Haibane better than you can with Angel Beats.
Angel Beats! is more lively than Haibane Renmei, but they deal with the same thing - life after death. They're both set in a purgatory-like world and the characters must deal with their sorrows, regrets, or sins from their previous life. Haibane Renmei is more serious, slow, and thought-provoking than Angel Beats!, but the ideas are the same. If you liked one, you may be interested in the other.
those anime have simmilar storyline,
angel beats and haibane renmei both have strange mysterious worlds, where everything is possible - worlds of ppl who died...
both stories says about dealing with the past
After death, humans go to either heaven or hell. But for some, at the instant of their death, they arrive at the Queen Decim, a bar attended by the mysterious white-haired Decim. He challenges them to the Death Game, wherein they wager their lives and reveal their true natures. Decim himself is the ultimate arbitrator of who wins and who loses, who lives and who dies.
Both of these animes operate on a different plane of existence. Making us all think what really happens after we die. Both are great series' and have a terrific ending
Both of these anime have the same life after death concept. Although Death Parade is a little bit darker than Angel Beats they are both pretty sad anime.
Similar background, following the life after death and tackles the different problems when it comes to death and going to Heaven or to Hell. Both anime have a touching ending and are filled with loveable characters that you will easily get attached to.
Death is the main subject with both of these Anime.
Although Death Parade does it in a darker twisted away while Angel beats does it in a more comedic way.
Both of them bring out emotions you never thought you had with dramatic, intense storylines and memories from the characters.
I loved seeing both versions of the afterlife from the Anime and I really loved both equally.
Both stories follow the concept of the transition between death and the afterlife. Although Death Parade is a darker anime, both animes present characters with very touching backstories that are developed throughout the series.
While I will admit Death Parade tends to be more graphic and open with it's dark themes, both Angel Beats and Death Parade focus on the afterlife, or - more specifically - what people experience before reincarnation. They both are highly emotional, and have fascinating insights on life after death, understanding one's existence and it's meaning, the judgement of souls after death, coming to terms with one's passing, and the hope and despair that comes with it. Both shows are well-crafted, and have creative imagery and beautiful animation. Overall, Death Parade is far darker than Angel Beats, but if you enjoyed one, you would likely enjoy the other.
Both shows discuss the issue of what happens when a person dies. Both shows are incredibly emotional and deal with grief and the pain behind memories of one's life. They both are set in a limbo-like location. Both have bitter sweet endings.
Again could not have said it better with the show of afterlife for the characters on both fronts was a good change of pace to dark horror comedy.
