Two young men get wrapped up in strange happenings that threaten their lives and the world around them. The main characters in both series are friends, but at the same time, they're entirely different. What they want is different. How they want to achieve it goes against the others beliefs. Can they put their differences aside to work together and save the world, or will their bonds fall apart? Will there be betrayal, or worse yet, death? You have to watch both to find out. Zetsuen no Tempest and No. 6 are not entirely identical, but when it comes to their characters, they're quite similar.

To Aru Majutsu no Index

Touma Kamijo's right hand has the ability to nullify any form of supernatural power, whether it be magical, psychic, or divine; he lives in a city populated by students with these powers. Yet unfortunately for Touma, his arm also seems to nullify good luck. Despite his bad luck, the boy tries to stay out of trouble and just live out his life, trying to be the "good guy" whenever he can; but trouble enters his life one day when he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony. She turns out to be a nun of the Church of England, bearing the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum - a collection of 103,000 forbidden texts, and as a result has a number of people after her. How far will Touma go to protect his new companion from her pursuers?

Recommended for premise . Both storeis revolve around multilayered plots, main characters without much in magic themselves but they get involved in the deepest depths of the power balance that governs their worlds. Plus the love story...

They're both great animes with dark themes where the protagonists fight to right an injustice and an almost brother/rival relationship between the two male characters. They have complex characters where motivations are not always clear cut and events can turn the story on its head.

The characters are also similarly somewhat haughty and arrogant (CG - Lelouch, ZnT - Shakespear quoting lolita complex guy) anti heroes. I liked Geass a bit better due to its length but Tempest has a much more satisfying ending imo. Enjoyable animes both.

Noein

Noein

When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.

Both of these anime deal with time travel, confusing powers with convoluted storylines, and are set in contemporary worlds that are in danger of being destroyed. 

They also are both very similar in how the dramatic and comedic elements of their stories are told.  And are scored with music that sounds unique and hauntingly beautiful.

I would say that Noein is the better anime out of the two, because while both are extremely convoluted, Blast of Tempest gets pretty rushed in the third act and unravels quite a bit.  In terms of animation Blast of Tempest is a lot cleaner and flows better with a better use of color (I'm sure uses more computer animation techniques).  Noein seems to have more of a hand drawn look (especially during action), which isn't bad, but it can be a little bit distracting and take me out of the story a bit.

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.

Mirai Nikki and Blast of Tempest both start out in the modern world.  Slowly, they both incorporate surreal elements.

By the end of the first episodes, we are fully engulfed in these supernatural worlds.  However, the rules of the anime manage to ground these other worldly elements.

Both forge amazing character connections, and are more cerebral, despite the fair amount of action each contains.  If you like one, you will likely enjoy the other, although Mirai Nikki is certainly the darker of the two.

Finally, both feature enough twists and turns to keep you entertained until the satisfying conclusions (make sure to check out the OVA for Mirai Nikki!).
