Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village.

Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death.

Both anime have cute characters surrounded by a dark mystery, are capable of grusome, evil things and characters which drown in acute paranoia. The two are very, very similar.

Darkskeleton Darkskeleton says...

Both Higurashi and Chaos;Head have a deep story which will keep you confused for a while slowly giving away details to make sense of the whole situation. In both anime, you usually see the story from the main characters perspective where he is the least informed of the characters about what is happening and later on becomes the hero. Also, they both share the theme where the characters go a 'bit' insane because of psycological reasons.

Jabau Jabau says...

Both share similar psychological aspects and do have some nice twists and turns. The story(plot) themselves aren't exactly very similar but the animation on both are amazing, the mystery elements on both are great and they are both titles that can be interesting throughout, can get you thinking and leave you with things to think about.

Kiyohime Kiyohime says...

Although Higurashi is ALOT more gorey than Chaos, both these animes are the same when it comes to horror filled delusions. Both main male characters seem to suffer under paranoid delusions. Murder, unconceivable deaths, and two faced secretive characters make up these dark, and sometimes confusing animes.

Shadowfang3000 Shadowfang3000 says...

Both animes are psychological wargrounds, and each one definetly keeps you holding the nearest blunt object for emergencies...

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

Both pretty dark anime, with a gloomy story behind them. Oh, don't forget the random murders/deaths(although higurashi is a bit closer to this).

Phantomtick99 Phantomtick99 says...

Both series have a lot of tension and uncertainty. The main characters of both have a lot of trouble with trust.

Shiraiyuki Shiraiyuki says...

If you liked Chaos;Head, i'm sure you'll like Hirgurashi and vice-versa, because they both have a paranoic and delusional main character, that is acused with crimes that he didn't comit , surrounded by beautifull, teenage, killer girls.

They also have that messed up story, that can put someone insane, when they try to understand.

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Both shows seem kinda cute at the start, but quickly take a dark turn. They both have a story that makes you confused the first time you watch it. Please do note that higurashi is a lot gorier than choas;head if you don't mind that you'll probably enjoy both shows.

Both of these animes start off like regular school-life animes. Then, "strange things" get revealed to the male protagonist. Suddenly, the world he knows goes topsy-turvy and all the women start carrying weapons. What's a guy to do?

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

Chaos;Head and 11 Eyes are exceedingly akin. In both we have a male lead surrounded by a female harem with varying degrees of usefulness regarding the plot. Magical swords, battles, girls running back and fro and an attempt at creating suspense reign supreme. As it turns out, the main character has some sort of power upon which salvation rests. With this said, Chaos;Head is not as fanservice stocked as its very ecchi counterpart 11 Eyes.

truthillusion truthillusion says...

11eyes and Chaos;Head share some similar themes that make them go together well. Both stories involve magical swords that only a select few can use, they both deal with a male lead character surrounded by women, and both have a small amount of psychological tricks on the viewer. If you are a fan of either, then I highly recommend seeing the other.

penguinkidkyri penguinkidkyri says...

If you liked one, you will like the other because they are both alike in the psychological way of how the characters think. Both have a side of romance, some hectice battle scenes, and plot twists. If you liked the craziness of one you will like the caziness of the other.

neutrino neutrino says...

The premise and atmosphere of both are pretty similar.  They involve teenagers realizing that there is more than what they see around them, and fighting in an unknown world against mysterious enemies. 

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

In both anime there is a world beside the normal world we live in, where teenagers fight their battles with other dudes in that world. If you liked one, check out the other.

punkypoison punkypoison says...

The similarities between the two animes are quite uncanny. Although the main characters are quite different, one being a hikikomori (chaos;head). The general vibe of the animes are similar too. If you enjoyed one you'll probably enjoy the other.

ShinuGami ShinuGami says...

To put it simply, if you liked 11eyes as i did, you'll defo like chaos;head :)

Enjoy

rhymewithlime rhymewithlime says...

Chaos;Head is a better romance/thriller version. Not as cookie cutter as 11eyes. Theming is very similar, but don't go too crazy over it. If you thought 11eyes was okay, don't expect much more from Chaos;Head.

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Besides the fact the both shows are based off a visual novel and the character cast is also pretty similar.

Both male main characters get sucked into a world they never knew of and have to find their own power to defeat evil, these anime are both pretty dark and chaotic. (guess the name chaos head heh.)

Other things that are quite similar is that both male's are in a harem like situation both shows have magical swords and they both feature a bit of romance, so if you liked one you'll also like the other.

Knyffen Knyffen says...

In both Chaos;HEAd and 11eyes the male protoganist is surrounded by girls with fighting potential and past traumas. The male protoganist is targeted because of a special power that has yet to awaken making him weak while carrying the key to the enemy's plan.

Serial Experiments Lain

Serial Experiments Lain

"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.

Unusual occurances stretch the boundries between real and unreal. The more events unfold, the more you question. What is the real story?

AnarchicQ AnarchicQ says...

Both anime have a lead character who is obcessed with the online world and begin to have trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality.

Vejhed Vejhed says...

Both animes have an anti-social main character with questionable multiple-personality issues. Each anime questions the line between reality and fantasy, oftentimes creating somewhat abstract scenes as it stretches the boundaries of reality. I think if you liked one, you'd definitely like the other.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

These shows blur the reality between the real world and a cyber world. You will frequently be asking youself whats going on, but the mystery is something you must wait to the end to have fully explained.

The story is quite deep and involved, and might turn a lot of people off, but if you enjoy one, you should like the other.

EcthelionGenesis EcthelionGenesis says...

Without spoiling the plot of both of these series, I'm limited to saying that they share themes, content and so on. However, if you're into futuristic, psychological thriller-type plots, driven by a main character who is as clueless as the viewer when it comes to where the plot is going to twist next... you may well be on to a winner here.

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Both shows feature a confusing story, though chaos head has more ecchi wereas lain has none. Both are good Psychological shows the difference between the two is that chaos;head has more action and lain has a better story, but if you liked one you'll probably like the other one as well.

Steins;Gate

Steins;Gate

The eccentric mad scientist Okabe, his childhood friend Mayuri, and the otaku hacker Daru have banded together to form the Future Gadget Research Laboratory, and spend their days in a ramshackle laboratory hanging out and occasionally attempting to invent incredible, yet generally useless, futuristic gadgets. However, their claymore is a hydrator and their hair dryer flips breakers, and the only invention that’s even remotely interesting is their Phone Microwave, which transforms bananas into oozing green gel. But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...

If you liked Chaos;head or steins,gate, you'd like the other because the plot and style is familliar and it's the same touch on both

 

Bradios Bradios says...

They're both made by the same company, but although they share absolutely different story aspects, it's good to check both of them out since the characters, while somewhat different can be related to each character personality wise.

Also, Science.

IndependentSK IndependentSK says...

If you liked Chaos;head, then you'll absolutely love Steins;Gate because it's made by the same company but it's billion times better

LunarNeko LunarNeko says...

They have the same kind of feeling to them, almost as if Chaos;Head was a prototype of Steins;Gate (since Steins;Gate in my opinion is much, much better). Many characters seems familiar although the animes' plots are totally different. It feels like the concept is kind of the same though. Just watch Steins;Gate and you'll understand... and also you'll love it!

akumasaint akumasaint says...

Strange things happen to some what regular people and they become something more that they didn't think could happen. It also does hurt it that the game version of both were writen by the same people. 

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?

Two shows with a mix of humor, the bizzarre, and the surreal that revolve around strange crime sprees.

Merryberry Merryberry says...

To be honest, both series both have the premise of something ordinary to start of with...but eventually end up somewhere completely different from where you expected.  The psycological aspect of both shows is rather interesting and will probably appeal to both audiences.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

Both Paranoia Agent and Chaos;Head are thrillers with a seemingly untouchable villain with unknown motives or origin. Both shows are all about uncovering the thruth behind this person, before much more harm is done. If you liked this in one of these shows, you'll enjoy the other as well.
