Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

These two have a strong similarity in plot - both involve people getting a hold of enormous amounts of money and must decide how to use it. Both are a mystery of sorts (EotE moreso than C), and are engaging/interesting to watch. That being said, there's some clear differences as well, including far more action and bizarre visuals in C. Still, they're unique/similar enough to recommend with each other.

eaper eaper says...

These series have several things in common. First, they each have a similar art style in many ways. While Eden of the East is more refined, C is definitely reminiscent of it (and the OPs of each are extrememly similar). Second, as each story gets on, the scope of it gets larger and larger. Finally, each series gives the ability to shape the future in the hand of some very interesting characters. If you enjoy the battles between ideals for control of the future, these series go well together.

VivisQueen VivisQueen says...

C wants to say something valuable about the economic status of Japan and its future. It wants to say it but unfortunately gags itself using the most banal metaphor ever - battles between pet creatures. For a better treatment of this sort of post-2000s let's-save-Japan theme check out Eden of the East. It has wonderful suspense, solid characterisation, a fascinating protagonist in Akira, and plenty of thrilling twists.

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

Both series focus on money. A lot. The main character has to decide how to put this money to use, and seeing the effect of how others use their money. Of course there is enough conflict between different characters to keep you clutched to the screen.

Despon Despon says...

Both of these anime take place in a very current world. Both main characters have to find their place in a conspiricy that will have massive impacts on the world. More then anything both anime deal with the true value of money, but in diffrent ways.

SwarleySupreme SwarleySupreme says...

They are both about saving the world from destruction using money. They both involve strategic plans by the main characters.

ShizukaAyame ShizukaAyame says...

Both are money games where it's game over if you run out. The difference, really, is that C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control has fighting and weird looking creatures, while Eden of the East stays in the realm of humans.

bly19vy bly19vy says...

Yeah they are sorta alike. They're both high stake games, romance, and both short.Oh, and they both use a huge amount of money. BUT..... in Eden of the East they waste money, and in MOSAPC they try to earn money. In my opinion I liked Eden of the east because it was more funny.

neuver neuver says...

Both involve dabbling in the future of the world, with the MC the major force in saving it.  Both involved mystery, and dragged people into participating into abnormal situations.  But most of all, they were enjoyable, and though-provoking.

Cut3PupGrL Cut3PupGrL says...

These two series share a strong similarity. Both main character are offered a way to change their life, possibly in a better way. Both character are thrown into this alter world in which they battle for power. While C: The Money of Soul and Possiblilty Control battle for more money, Accel World battle for more burst point. Each battle won enables them to an upgrade of sorts. C: The Money of Soul and Possiblility Control upgrade to better ATM cards, Accel World level up.  While in this strange world, both anime form teams in order to survive.  Although the content are different, the plot overall are very similar.

Aranneas Aranneas says...

I agree with basically all of the comments of the vistor above.

I'll add the caveat that I consider C to be the markedly inferior series in aspects of character, writing, and plot. For this reason I recommend Accel World as what is potentially a far more enjoyable rendition of a somewhat similar premise, but I wouldn't really recommend C to anyone for any reason.

arachni42 arachni42 says...

They both involve an alternate reality that gives people a benefit in the real world, but they must battle in order to keep their power -- although loss in C also involves heavy-duty real world loss. The battles are handled very similarly, with a scoreboard to keep track because you don't know who has what powers. The characters in C are older and more mature (adults vs high school), but both have elements of competition, friendship, drama, and romance. If you liked one you should check out the other.

snivets snivets says...

When games become all too real, the characters must learn to deal with how the game shapes their lives. If you liked either of these shows, check out the other. Both start with an invitation into a alternate reality/game, involve flashy duels, and look at how people's real world beliefs, stresses, and dreams manifest themselves in a virtual world.

Rfsancho Rfsancho says...

Both of these shows are definitely similar in a sense that the characters are thrown into a mysterious/game world to battle for some kind of mass gain, be it power or money. While that may be the only similarity sondiering the different plot and style of the show, check them both out.

closetanimefan closetanimefan says...

Both are about games that nobody wants to lose. The main characters are also similar in that they both are a little innocent for the world that they are thrown into and get bossed around by a girl who knows more about it then they do. C is darker then Accel Word, but if you liked one, the other is worth looking at.

These are two very different titles, but if you like the crazy and bizarre visuals of C (especially during the battles), I think you'd love the game scenes that eventually happen in Summer Wars. That, and it's a damned good movie in general.

MADwonderholic MADwonderholic says...

They both center around a boy that gets involved in a virtual world. The battles both have a similar bizzare feel to them, and similar aesthetics. If you like one, you'd probably like the other.

eaper eaper says...

These series each focus on two seperate world- one being the real world while the other is a world with the power to control the real world. Each series also has interesting visuals throughout.

animeandwwefanDXXD animeandwwefanDXXD says...

similar themes of real life contrasted with a huge virtual world/virtual reality that still effects the real world ;) similar avatar and human charachters as well...animation kind of.....similar...(kind of!) ;) summer wars probs the better of the 2 from memory...

lunamanzia lunamanzia says...

Although not similar in plot, both C: and Gankutsuou share the same bizarre, unique style of animation and a world/setting where the future plays a role in the plotline (however, in different ways). Character wise, both shows share a pure-hearted male protagonist and a revenge-driven antagonist accompanied by a female, pallid "sidekick" of sorts. Also, both shows revolve around the idea that money brings power and authority. All in all, if you like one show, you'll probably like the other.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

So... do you like money thrown about like it's spare change? Gankutsuou and C: Control are all about having the money to do what you wish; to save or destroy, to buy buy buy, whatever. All encased in a trippy world that is a treat for the eyes. Their plots are hardly the same but it's all about the animation and wealth.

animelibera animelibera says...

While the plots for each are very different, both have money as a very important plot device; the power to change the future. The shows have similar artsy animation styles.

GrnEydDvl GrnEydDvl says...

Both of these shows focus on the concept that money=power and those with money have the potential to change people's fate, although not necessarily for the better.  They both explore deep and twisted psychologies about people's relationships to money, each other, and the world.  The art styles, while not the same, were also reminicent of each other in their futuristic and etherial style of a world that doesn't seem to be fixed.  While these shows follow very different stories, I think there are plenty of similaries in them that would appeal to the same types of people.

Selector Infected WIXOSS

Selector Infected WIXOSS

WIXOSS is a card game that's popular with teenagers. Supposedly there exist "Rulig Cards," female character cards with wills of their own. Special girls can hear the voices of the Ruligs, and those who possess them are called Selectors. These Selectors have card battles in a dimension that other humans cannot access. It's said that whoever triumphs in these battles will have their wish granted. Ruko Kominato is the latest girl to find a Rulig card. She names hers Tama, and without any further explanation is thrown into her life as a Selector.

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

If you're a fan of the battles in WIXOSS or C, then this is a rec for you. There are a few differences between the two shows, but the fighting is pretty much the same. Holders of mysterious cards do battle by summoning a supernatural being from inside the card. The holder then commands the being, and if they win, they are rewarded. If this kind of battle system is what you're looking for, then look no further. 

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

If you like anime about high stakes games that start off simple, but then grow to have world changing consequences then you should check out these titles. Both C and Wixoss start out with their characters just trying to have fun with these new games they've discovered, but thy quickly come to realize that there is a lot more at stake in these games. 

In C the characters play a lot of different games and the cards are just used for avatars. Wixoss is about a card battle game so there is less variety in the game. Wixoss also does a poor job of explaining the card game so it can be difficult to understand what is going on most of the time.

Both these anime have real world and game world settings. The real world in both anime are shown as a bit drab and gray, but the game worlds are colorful places full of fantastical design. C has the better designs and more interesting look of the two, but both anime have a second world that only a few selected people can see. 

If you're looking for games anime where the stakes seem low at the start, but suddenly become world shaking then check out either of these titles.  

Issengard Issengard says...

Apparently Selector Infected WIXOSS is a mix of Madoka Magica and C the Money of Soul, where a young and innocent protagonist have to fight in battles in order to accomplish a wish that can also betray them in the end.

DaisukeKun DaisukeKun says...

yes, they're very likely. However, the plot in C is much more insteresting i think and i have to write one hundred words, but no
