When a group of children discover a strange cave at the beach, their lives are forever changed. Inside they find a hide out filled with computers and a man named Kokopelli who gives them a curious offer: to participate in a special game in which they save Earth from fifteen giant monsters. To defeat the invaders, he will give them a powerful mecha of black armor. The children eagerly sign the contract, name their new weapon Zearth, and must now take turns to pilot it; but the 'game' is in fact all too real and the consequences of battle become the stuff of nightmares. With no option to cancel the contract, is there any way to stop the game before it is too late for all of them?
Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Yagami Light finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. 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...
Death Note is yet another anime that, just like Bokurano, shows us human nature. Death Note feels more like a detective story as there is less mystery and more analyzing going on, but it does have similarities with Bokurano. It also talks about morals and adds a more intelligent storyline. I truly had the same feeling watching these anime.
discovers how the people involve in a strange events,found an answer to their questions. and what they are doing, to escape from their terrible destiny.
Both of these deal with the same question - if it's what's best for the world, is it okay to kill people? They both also have a plot that keeps you interested all the way through, and you always end up thinking "just one more episode".
One thousand years from now, humanity live pastoral lives aided by psychokinetic powers and the subservient Monster Rats. Saki Watanabe has just come of age, and her power has been reined in through meditation and hypnosis. She joins the Unified Class, where she will learn about her power and the world around her; yet so much of the truth is kept hidden. Her friends Shun, Mamoru, Satoru, and Maria share in her curiosity, and decide to go out of their way to seek the truth. But will the secrets of the past and present turn out to be things that Saki really wants to know?
At first glance these 2 shows aren't all that similar but my gut tells me otherwise so bare with me. Children suddenly find themselves working to keep the people they love safe. The children in both shows have access to special powers. Mecha in Bokurano, telekinesis in From the New World. The atmosphere and the tone of both shows are very similar along with a dark feeling of doom that keeps you watching to see what will happen next.
So yeah it might just be me that feels these 2 are similar but either way try one if you liked the other.
Although both anime differ greatly in terms of plot, there are a few striking similarities.
1. The protagonists are all children. Most part of Shin Sekai Yori, anyway.
2. The children of both anime are plunged into a cruel conspiracy created by the adults of both worlds. As both anime progress, we will soon realise the truth behind the cruelty of both worlds.
3. In both anime, the children are given special abilities to fight with. In Shin Sekai Yori, the children's psychic powers will awaken when they come of age (i.e., mainly telekinesis). In Bokurano, the children were given robots to pilot.
Albert de Morcerf had it all: wealth, loving parents, great friends. The only thing lacking in his life was excitement... until that fateful day on Luna. After a chance encounter with bandits and a daring rescue, Albert invites his newfound friend and savior, the Count of Monte Cristo, to his home in Paris. Little does he know what fate has in store for him and his loved ones. Just who is the mysterious Count, and what does he want? As tragedy touches the lives of those around him, can Albert’s only recourse be to wait and hope?
Mouth-gaping drama, that's what Bokurano and Gankutsuou give. The events that occur and the human behaviour they portray is very dramatic; there are plenty of twists, turns, and surprises too. I believe that if you indulged in the enticing drama (really, there's no other word for it) of one, you'll definitely like the other.
Up for something intelligent? Than you should watch both of these, I consider them both masterpieces.
It is the year 1983; and in the village of Hinamizawa, on the night of the cotton drifting festival and in the days following it, a series of deaths occurs. The only hope for the village and its inhabitants is the shrine maiden Furude Rika who, with the help of her invisible partner Hanyuu, is able to travel back in time and alter the events that led to disaster. Unfortunately, regardless of what changes are made, each voyage ultimately ends with the death of Rika and many of her friends. But when Rika’s friends start remembering things that happened to them in previous worlds and take steps to avoid the same outcomes, Rika realizes that their chances of survival have never been better. Can she really challenge and defeat fate itself?
Both series are stories about people who know that they are going to day. We can watch their movements and see what is happening to them just before the death. But both of them also show how we can change our life and face the destiny and fight it. If you like a deeply psychologic series you will like the one i recommend for sure.
Both of the series have a dark plot to them, where characters must keep pushing toward a seemingly pyrrhic victory. You will enjoy how the plots unravel in a very similar fasion.
What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...
Both Infinite Ryvius and Bokurano psychologicaly focus on a group of kids facing incredible and pressing circumstances. Both are series with a multidimensional focus, specific to a range of characters, though it could be argued that Infinite Ryvius handles a much larger cast. Both series feature a mecha power aspect, but the emphasis is more on the characters and the consquences that come with using that power.
Character driven dramas that explore the actions and psychology of groups of youth in life threatening situations. They share science fiction settings as well, with Bokurano's being slightly softer overall.
