26 years ago, something terrible happened in a middle school’s third year classroom. A popular, talented student named Misaki suddenly died, and the ramifications of that incident have caused each third year class since then to live in fear. It is now 1998, and Kouchi Sakakibara has just transferred into the notorious classroom, curious about the mysterious secret that his peers are hiding from him. He’s drawn to one enigmatic girl named Mei Misaki, a quiet student who wears an eye patch and warns him about getting involved with her, and continues to seek her out against the pleas of his classmates. And that’s when people begin to violently die...
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.
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.
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.
Teiichi Niiya is a first year middle-school student at Seikyou Private Academy, an institution known for mysterious occurrences. The boy quickly finds these rumors to be true when he meets Yuuko Kanoe, a beautiful, mischievous girl who quickly takes a liking to him... and happens to be a ghost who seemingly no one else can see! Unable to remember anything about her past, Yuuko enlists Teiichi’s help to discover the truth, and together they join the school's Paranormal Investigation Club. With fellow memebers Momoe and Kirie, the pair will investigate the many strange happenings around campus, including the shadowy circumstances surrounding Yuuko’s death.
Both of these shows start with a similar feel. The horror/mystery at school. They both have a similar seriousness to them, but Another will stick more to the horror theme, while Dusk Maiden will be more sillier at times and move to a more romantic plot. However, I suspect that if you like one you might like the other, keeping in mind these differences.
Both are deal with mysteries surrounding the female lead and both deal with spirits. They also have a dark tone to them while also retaining some lighthearted moments of comedy. They have very similar settings also. It's not hard to see how you could enjoy one if you enjoyed the other.
Both have a similar feel, both quite dark, though Dusk Maiden is often more light-hearted, both extremely good animes and both worth watching for anyone who likes the supernatural!!
Mai Taniyama is a first year high school student who lives a carefree life telling ghost stories with her friends. One day, she meets Kazuya Shibuya, the head of Shibuya Psychic Research (SPR); and together, she tags along to help him investigate paranormal activities in a haunted school building. His assistant Lin was hurt during an incident to protect Mai from danger, so what more can Mai do than to take the job as Shibuya's assistant? Along with a team of other ghost hunters, they will uncover the mystery of a strange case coming their way, while Mai starts to discover her own abilities.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In an era when ordering on the internet has become the norm, online vendors have a new favorite customer: Sakurada Jun! From voodoo dolls to x-ray specs, there's nothing this middle schooler can't get enough of -- until a strange package arrives one day. Inside is a sentient doll named Shinku, who is one of a special hand crafted set of dolls called Rozen Maiden. Luckily for Jun, not only does he get to keep her, but she's decided he'll be... her new servant?! Join Jun as he struggles to keep his sanity in a house full of dolls who all want his servant skills for themselves!
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
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.
