Both shows involve alot of mystery, suspense and are focued around a series of deaths. Both contain a supernatural element that helps drive the plots forward in way that is neither cliche or forced. If you liked one you'll more than likely find something to like in the other.

another is also interesting but I much preferred death parade, Another was too one sided for me and wasnt flexible so the narrative became tedious.

Both Dantalian no Shoka and Another showcase a creepy supernatural plotline with a mysterious little girl as a main character. They also have aspects of a mystery-type show, though Another focuses on mystery much more than Dantalian no Shoka, whose episodic episodes are more about the supernatural. Dantalian no Shoka's characters and overall mood is much livelier and more quirky, adding to the uniqueness of each episode, while Another's is more subdued, adding to its suspense and creepiness.

Both series transport some sort of depressing, melancholic mood and have fragile but mysterious female protagonists and occult themes.

quietfragility quietfragility says...

Both Another and Elfen Lied have a slightly haunting feel to them, and an element of questioning morality in situations where murder(s) is concerned. Another and Elfen Lied's female protagonists are received in similar ways by other characters, and both have deeper pasts which are explored as each series progressed.

There is bloodshed in both of these series, so fans of yandere might appreciate this element(!)
