Watch cute girls with unconventional character designs battle it out in short little bursts. There's little in the way of plot or exposition. There's just enough explanation to give the characters a reason to have flashy battles.
Akari has always known two things: she’s a skilled fortune teller, and she has an uncanny knack for growing huge, healthy plants. But after experiencing a traumatic tragedy the girl soon discovers the true horror of the world: there exist evil spirits known as Daemonia that infect people’s hearts and grant their hosts wishes in exchange for a contract. After the wish is fulfilled, the human is turned into a murderous monster, and only Sephiro Fiore, a group of girls who wield the powers of the Elemental Tarot, can put a stop to them. As the bearer of the Sun card, Akari must join Sephiro Fiore and help take down those possessed by Daemonia, no matter the cost.
While not identical plot-wise these two share a similar mood/feel and the 'other worlds' aspect has a similar aesthetic style as well. Fans of Black Rock Shooter looking for something more coherent story-wise will surely appreciate Day Break, the other way around won't be as strong of a recommendation except based on a gut feeling.

For some reason, these two anime really reminded me of each other. Alright, School Days does not have any battle scenes and Black Rock Shooter doesn't have any ecchi. But the atmosphere was quite the same; it starts off (at least, the school part in BRS) all cute and happy, but turns darker and darker, and eventually, you're not sure or the series will have a happy end. If you liked BRS or School Days, you might want to check the other one out as well.
Both of these anime are based on concepts created by Supercell. Although Perfect day is a music video, it should be noted Black Rock Shooter started out as a song by as well, before becoming an OVA . Both have stunning animation and well created characters, fans of Supercell or just someone after a unique style of anime should check both out.
