Both of these animes can fit into the romance genre yet also have a serious psychological aspect to both of them. If you enjoyed h20 or Chaos;Head I believe you would be interested in the other too.

The psychological aspect in Choas;Head and H2O are what really make the two series stand out in my mind as being similar.  There is also a slight almost to the weird romantic fascination that overtakes the characters making some decisions more difficult than others to bare.

I think, you'll like it for psychological content. And both have great animation. I really love both animes.

I think that if you liked Chaos;Head, you'll like Deadman Wonderland because....well they're not similar in the plot, or anything, but when I watch Deadman... I think "OMG this anime's reallly messed up..." - yet I love it

That was what I felt when I watched Chaos...

In both these animes a guy's world is turned upside down when he learns that there are people with strange abilities that inhabit that same world. He quickly makes friends with some powerful allies, but finds out there's something even bigger lurking in the shadows. While Deadman is considerably more bloody than Chaos;Head, they both share a plot with plenty of mind-bending twists.

Both have the same bloody and thriller feel. Moreover, the characters' personalities are in the same line, the outcast Hero and Yandere heroines.

skitxophrenic skitxophrenic says...

Chaos;Head attempts to portray a semi-romantic "relationship" between main character Takumi and Rimi, but the show does not focus on this and the relationship subplot ultimately falls flat. However, if you liked the concept behind this relationship and want to see a successful attempt at this, then check out Future Diary, which features a similar relationship between Yuki and Yuno ... which is actually focused on and developed. Particularly, it feels as though Future Diary's Yuno is a much more realized version of what Chaos;Head's anime adaptation wanted Rimi to be.

Robotics;Notes

Robotics;Notes

In the year 2019, the Robotics Club of Central Tanegashima High School has only one goal in mind: to create a working replica of the giant anime robot Gunvarrel! But doing so isn’t easy as the club only has two members: Aki, who took over the project from her now-graduated sister; and Kai, a lazy gamer who’d rather be elsewhere. What’s worse, the school’s vice principal has decided their club is a waste of school funds and plans to shut them down! Now, the duo must convince her otherwise by winning a fighting robot tournament and gaining new, machine-savvy members, but when Kai accidentally stumbles upon an unbelievable conspiracy, the Robotics Club becomes the least of his concerns...

KenichiSora KenichiSora says...

Along with steins;gate, these animes are based off the virtual novels made by 5pb. however i feel that thier are also a lot of similarities between the two main charactors. thier both addicted to a video game and have the same kind of aura about them. its just that the main char of chaos head is insane.

chisakuralucy chisakuralucy says...

Both stories are based off of video games from the same developer, as is Steins;Gate. Robotics;Notes and Steins;Gate actually share more similarities, but Chaos;HEAd also has a lot in common, such as being science fiction stories that take place in the present/near future, and involving advances in a particular area of technology: robots in Robotics;Notes, the inventions they work on in Steins;Gate, and internet-related and frankly all kinds of bizarre and mysterious possibilities in Chaos;HEAd (too hard to explain).

The most stark difference is the main chraracters, who are all actively involved in related fields in Robotics;Notes (as well as in Steins;Gate), whereas Chaos;HEAd features the classic pure otaku shut-in dragged into fantastical mystery. Also, Robotics;Notes and S;G are very group oriented, whereas Chaos;HEAd features a much more isolated protagonist, so his quirks, struggles and perceptions greatly dominate the narrative, as opposed to being provided with multiple perspectives.
