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.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

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

You're a few episodes in, thinking, "it's been creepy, but nothing blatantly gory... And then it happens, the first school girl dies in a pool of blood. And from then on, the black haired female protagonist watches as her classmates are picked off in strange ways. Both anime are the scenario above, with some differences. If you liked one, try the other. 

Jigoku Shoujo

Jigoku Shoujo

Has someone done something to hurt you or the ones you love? Are you seeking revenge? Rumor has it that there’s a website that can service your needs. Titled “Hotline to Hell”, it contains a form that can be accessed only at midnight. Type in a name, and the Hell Girl will carry out your bidding – for a price. For though your appetite for revenge will be satisfied, your soul will also be condemned to hell after you die. But who is the Hell Girl, and does she care whether your revenge is justified? Apparently not, as long as she gets more souls…

They're similar in way that it is also in a school and Enma ai, and Misaki has the same creepy "red eyes". Although Misaki isn't related to hell, they share the same aura of death. 

deideiblueeyez deideiblueeyez says...

Though different in terms of plot-- Jigoku Shojo a story about a girl that has set up a website that will summon her to answer your call for revenge on another, and Another, a town that is plagued by its history of mysterious deaths all linked to the high school's Class 3 each year-- both feature a very stoic and seemingly emotionless girl as a main character who are in the center of all the trouble that abounds in bot series. If you like a horrorific anime with spooky and a supernatural 'cursed' lilt to it, I suggest either one.

serenitii serenitii says...

Both anime revolve around a "legend" in which some people believe and others don't. Though the pacing is very different   between each anime, both have that slight eeriness that will leave you feeling spooked. Though, unlike Another, Hell girl is episodic and repetitive, in the end you will get pretty much the same thing out of them. If you liked one, you will likely enjoy the other.

Michajel Michajel says...

Both Another and Hell girl have dark athmosphere, horror elements, and some hidden secrets you have to discover little by little.

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.

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...

Death Note

Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality.

With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...

scramblingbalam scramblingbalam says...

Almost all every genera that "Another" is taged with apply to Death Note as well.

While they are both Psychological Horror with supernatural and mystery overtones: where Deathnote flies off into unrealistic Epic Anime land; Another stays grounded.

If what you liked about DeathNote is the fact that he can play god than Another may not me for you. If what you liked is the Horror of being in a situation that that is out of your control than you will find Another gripping.

I found Another much more terrifying because I could imagine it acctually happening, it even seemed to follow a supernatural logic that might be consistent with quantum mechanics. The other thing that makes Another frigtening is that unlike Death Note or other Middle School Anime the Charecters seem like they are actually in High School. We are reminded that these are just kids. They have a vulerability that makes them more simpathetic, it reminds me of what I think middle school is really like for most people uncertain and scary, this is set up from the second episode as the students talk about being worried about what high school they can test into, and continues as it becomes more obviouse that death is ttwalking among them.  

Hutai Hutai says...

Supernatural, detective, mystery etc. A case where people die for "unknown" reason. Lots of deaths, good story, animation and music. 

Pickletom10 Pickletom10 says...

These animes are both "sitting at the edge of your seat" animes. Once you watch one episode, the suspence will have you wanting more. I enjoy murder/death mysteries and if you enjoy watching genres like that, you are sure to love either of these. Death Note is about Light Yagami (Kira) killing people with the power of the death note. Another is about Kouchi Sakakibara and class 3's death curse.

If you enjoyed the darker themes of either of these shows, you will most likely enjoy the other. Also, both have supernatural themes to them.

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.
