Suimin Suimin says...

Another and Blood-C are two horror titles in which a small community (class in Another) seemingly start to die by a supernatural cause, until everything goes completely wrong and out of control. They can both get pretty bloody, and if you want to watch them, I suggest you wait for the DVD release or else you'll be seeing a lot of censoring!

Do you like anime about bad things happening to school kids? Then look no further! These two shows have plenty of mystery and horror surrounded by many deaths! Blood-C adds in some monsters where Another is about freak accidents but both shows are a perfect match if you are looking for awesome gore.

AirCommodore AirCommodore says...

Both of these anime are dumb as bricks, but let's face it- you're watching for the gore, not the story. And these two certainly deliver with the gore. There's no shortage of blood, limbs, and people dying in horrifying ways. Additionally, both were directed by the same person, so they have a similar pacing and progression.

Both are horror shows with plenty of gore and some supernatural elements, taking place in mostly a school setting.

Mirai Nikki TV

Mirai Nikki TV

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

Another and Mirai Nikki are similar in many ways. They both havesimilar animation, are horror, and have a similar feel to them.

SoulE SoulE says...

Another and Mirai Nikki TV both have creepy mystery and horror elements, lots of bloodshed, great soundtracks, and great plots.

AruValentine AruValentine says...

These two have an alike horror/bloody-gore aspect, very high up on levels of emotion with each character, and both can give you chills down your spine. I honestly fell in love with both animes from the first episode, they pull you in and make things very interesting right from the start. Both main characters are alike in reactions and even their attitude on things, yet reamin their own personalities all the same. Both are psychologically intense and bring out a huge level of emotion in times of dispare and death. In short, if you like one I HIGHLY recommend the other.

spleeneater spleeneater says...

"Another" and "future diary" go hand in hand when it comes to detailed psychological thrillers...both shows will have you on your toes trying to solve the mysteries around them,. Lots of blood and death in both..."plus there is someone with an eyepatch in both, and that just makes it much more cool" A big difference in the two is that "future diary is a game in which the last one standing is a winner and all the deaths come from murders as opposed to "another"where people die due to strange events from a curse on a school......but when you finish either show, its great to start right on the next one...

both girls looks like dolls. but in rozen maiden they actually live. an in another ( i hope the don't live) and the tinds that happend are supernatural. both anime are worth to watch

Kraskie Kraskie says...

The theme of dolls is heavily represented in both anime. Though Another is considerably more light hearted than Rozen Maiden, they still share many of the same aspects.

Rozen Maiden focuses more on how to make the most of your life when it gets bad, wheras Another mostly just makes you curious and tries to scare you. In Rozen Maiden the happy scenes are there to make you feel better after the scarier ones, but in Another they give you a nice scene first to make the scary ones that much scarier...

In my opinion; if you are planning on watching both, it would be better to watch Rozen Maiden first.

yourpet yourpet says...

Both animes have in their own concept a dark/creppy yet classical ambience and a psychological relevance. Maybe it's the opening of Another that transmits such feeling, but the classical music and plus the  porcelain dolls do the trick and reminds me of Rozen Maiden.

Gosick

Gosick

In the early 20th century, Kazuya transfers to a prestigious academy as part of an exchange program between Japan and Saubure, a small European country. But while Kazuya would love to make friends and have a typical school life, the boy is shunned by his ghost story-loving peers who believe that he's a "Black Reaper" to be feared. Things change one day when Kazuya wanders to the top of the library and discovers a lush botanical garden, and a beautiful, small, blonde-haired girl named Victorique who rarely leaves the building and is fascinated by unsolved mysteries. Together, the two develop a budding friendship and take on many chilling and dangerous cases that even the famous local detective Grevil can't solve.

both anime are about mistiries and myths. gosick there is for everything a logical reason.both girl looks like dolls. but in another there is supernatural stuff. if you liked 1 you will like the other.

KingArthur13th KingArthur13th says...

Both series are shrouded in mystery and a new transfer student is thrown into the middle of it all. The main characters of Another and Gosick along side a calm and stoic female lead, go off to solve the mystery that threatens both of their lives and will forever change their future. Gosick goes into a few more mysteries before getting into the main plot but Another is one giant msytery all the way through. Both series are amazing to watch.

Let's see... teenagers, creepy atmosphere, ghost stories and sort-of-ghost stories... yep, these both have 'em. 

Granted, Ghost Hunt wasn't nearly as exciting at first, but it built, and the last few episodes had a nice combination of blood, mysterious/creepy air, and story. So if that's the part of Ghost Hunt you liked the most, and you want a more complex, longer stretching story, then you'll want to check out Another

If you want more ghost/creepy/etc stuff, but would like a bit more romance and a few more typical character interactions than Another provides, then you may like Ghost Hunt. Just know that GH is more about investigating the ghosts at first, not superstitions.

They have their differences, as you can tell just be reading the descriptions (once the Another description is up). But they have enough similarities that I can't believe I'm the first to make this recommendation.

kittykatsushi kittykatsushi says...

Creepy, Scary, and Thrilling. If yuh like one of these or mayb all of them then i suggest yuh watch this. Ghost Hunt has a scary theme tht builds up within each episode. Another may have a little bit of romance in it bt it also carries the traight of scary and creepy. Both have bloodshed in them so if yuh enjoy tht then i suggest yuh watch this.
