The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed "suicide"?
Plot-wise these two aren't similar at all - but the very creepy, odd character designs of Neuro and Masakaki completely reminded me of each other. If you're looking for something outside of the norm visually, check out either of these.
Agreed with sothis that they're not similar in plot, but that Neuro and Masakaki have similar personalities and roles.
just like sothis has said, plot-wise they are similar and animation wise in some areas too. They both have a nice story and it can be a little confusing on both, unless you pay attention like i did.
Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.
If you were disappointed like I was with C then you should definitely check out Spice and Wolf for an enjoyable watch. Both have economic themes but Spice and Wolf does a much better job overall with its execution in its plot and animation. Spice and Wolf is a better option compared to C.
Both these series have that economics feel to them. Though S&W is more of a merchant tale with great drama/comedy, money and business relationships still play a part. C is fairly similar and, though it has a slightly more serious tone at times, it has the same feel to it as S&W in terms of assets and high-stakes decisions.
Economics for the fantasy world in S&W, and Economics in a more modern world for C. If one dosnt hit you, look to the other one. Or if you just like Economics, watch both.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
While C is very colorful and involves battles with sentiant helpers, Deadman has carnaval corpse, where the two people fight. Also the main two characters are similar, at least in the part the guy cant get a break and he has a happy and strong girl at his side during his story.
Both of the protagonists are forced into a situation in which they must fight for their lives. Neither wish to fight. Winnings are earned but running out money will result in death. Deadman Wonderland is darker and more mature but if you are okay with that you will probably enjoy Deadman Wonderland as well.
Both have some unnatural events and circumstances supernatural or something. Both have a main male and female stuck in a situation where fights occur and losing has a significant cost whether it's your organs, your life, your friends, your family, etc. They definitely have a lot of differences, but Deadman was the first show that came to mind when watching C because it has a lot of important similarities.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
These series each focus on a lead male unwillingly thrown into a battle for his life and the future. They each have the main character paired with a female that forces them to fight. Ideals and realities battle to take control of the future in both series, making them go well together.
C is to economics as Code Geass is to chess. They both have these themes that are applied to the plot, though in both cases it makes far more sense symbolically than literally. C is lacking in the "All according to plan..." gambits that Code Geass is chock full of, and the main characters' reactions to the power they're handed are quite the opposite. C is the more unique concept, but the characters and plot are not as fleshed out as Code Geass. Still, both series play with their respective themes and take them to over-the-top levels. They both have something new to bring to the table.
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
While these series may seem miles apart, they both focus on a main character that can't completely decide which world they want to live in and what they want to do with it. Eventually, they finally decide and cause a very similar ending in each. Without spoiling, all I can say is if you liked the ending in one, or the struggle to decide what's right and wrong, and who to believe, it's definitely worth giving the other one a try.
These shows may have very different settings and protagontists, but they actually have quite a bit in common. In each show, the protagontist is essentially asked to make a deal with the "devil" in exchange for something that will benefit them. The actual cost of the deal becomes more and more apparent throughout the show, and the characters fight desperately to minimize the effects and stop the "devil" from continuing to negatively affect the world. If this Faustian psychology was why you liked one show, then you will definitely like the other.
