Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

Makoto Konno is a somewhat foolish and tomboyish high school student who spends most of her time hanging out with her two male friends. Things change one day when she suddenly gains the ability to leap through time! At first, she uses her newfound ability to do things such as preventing her sister from stealing her dessert, cheating on a test, and singing Karaoke for 10 hours. However, the small alterations she makes to the timeline turn out to have unforeseen consequences that snowball into dramatic and lethal situations for her and those around her...

If nothing else, these two works are strikingly similar in tone, visual style, and character design - they seem almost born for each other. The low-key, naturalistic depiction of teens is something of a similar mindset. That both also have a sci-fi element is notable - however, Cencoroll is all about the sci-fi action (however peculiarly so); while The Girl Who Leapt Through Time uses a non-action sci-fi concept as an integral force to its low key and very human drama.

These are rather major differences to take into consideration; but the works just feel so tonally similar to me I feel obliged to cross recommend them.

Both animes are very fun because of the animation styles and charector development! You will instantly fall in love with the charectors and become absorbed into the movie! full of Drama and action! I highly recommend either one these confusingly fun movies!

Both Kamisama Dolls and Cencoroll are about school kids who control strange monsters, and are often using them to fight with each other.

Both anime involve kids/teens controlling very weird creatures of totally unexplainable origin in fights against other weird creatures. Shuu and Aki play similar roles.

Paranoia Agent

Paranoia Agent

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

These two anime have avery similar feel, especially towards the end. It's hard to explain without spoiling anything, but cute cuddley sureal pets and the humans they love are part of the course for both these shows.

Paprika

Paprika

In Japan, a team of scientists have created a medical breakthrough: a device that allows the wearer to enter the dreams of a patient, for the purpose of healing. The talented Paprika is a master at her profession, but complications have now appeared in the form of a “dream terrorist” – an unknown foe who inserts nightmares into the minds of those who use the device. The victims are swept up in a ghoulish parade of dolls, kitchen appliances, and musical animals, and are reduced to a vegetable state – or worse. Now, Paprika and the team of scientists must delve into the minds of those affected to figure out the source of the tampering before more people, including themselves, are damaged beyond repair.

With inspired electronic music and strange, shifting, bizarre things forming over Tokyo and fights that may or may not make sense somewhere along the line, Paprika and Cencoroll deliver. This is about all Cencoroll delivers, aside from some fairly naturalistic depictions of teens, while Paprika engages in a whole range of eccentric oddness - nevertheless, these works rather compliment each other.

Genius Party

Genius Party

Seven stories are told in seven very different ways. In a Dahli-esque Serengeti, a tale of a hunter and hunted unfolds. A young boy finds a useful device and is sucked into a futuristic battle. A slow-paced train ride takes two delinquent school children for a ride to the beach and down memory lane. And a baby travels through his dreams because of the ‘Happy Machine’ – amongst other tales.

This is a recommendation for the short "Shanghai Dragon" specifically in relation to Cencoroll.

Why? Well, they're both fluidly, artistically animated anime shorts that are all about conventional shonen action cliches, with young heroes stepping up to the bat to blow stuff up. There's more comedy, whimsy and nostalgia in "Shanghai Dragon" compared to the detached moodiness of Cencroll, but both are worth watching.
