A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Deadman Wonderland and Darker Than Black (Season 1) both play out almost exactly the same. A mysterious "hole" appears (Black in DTB and Red in DW) and certain humans gain certain powers. In Darker Than Black, they have to give up something to use their powers, and in Deadman Wonderland, they have to use their blood, AKA a limited supply. Both series are action-packed, wonderfully paced, and gorey.
Both are dark and gritty and deal with people who posses unique and cool powers. If you liked darker than black and want some more in the way of awesome kinda gorey superpowers check out deadman wonderland.
Both of these anime deal with people who acquire powers due to an unknown phenomenon, which causes them to be catagorized as dangerous. Darker Than Black is bit darker in my opinion and the storyline is really good, and there is more character progression than Deadman Wonderland, also the main protagonist in DTB is pretty badass, whereas the protagonist in DW can be a little wimpy at times but both of them are quite interesting.
Clumsy, good-natured Saya lives a happy life surrounded by her classmates, her admirers, and the loving guidance of her father, the priest of a shrine. But mysterious, bloodthirsty monsters have begun to appear, and as the daughter of the shrine, Saya is tasked with keeping the village safe – even if it costs the girl her life. Now, between her schoolwork and friendships, Saya must pick up the sword and keep these brutal creatures at bay. Will Saya be able to return to the quiet life she once knew?
Even though they both have slow beginnings they pretty much have non-stop action with decent dialog. Nobody seems to be who they say they are. Great amounts of blood and tragic stories. Must see.
Both Deadman Wonderland and Blood C and are fast paced, mysterious, bloody anime. There's times when the action does come out of nowhere somewhat randomly, and then there's times when the plot drags a little in a good way imo. There's surprises in store for you in both anime. If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.
Bllod? Yes. Gore? Also yes. Supernatural mumbo-jumbo that boils down to "special blood is special"? Yeah...
Both of these feature a less-than-powerful protagonist that can quickly turn super powered if stressed. They quickly get surrounded by a mountain of bodies, and don't quite have the mental capacity to cope. So, if ypu liked one, check out the other. Psychosis and blood await you.
Jin is an energetic young boy living in a shanty town and making ends meet by performing good deeds for money. However, when his mentor dies during a fight with a strange monster he finally learns the meaning of death. Having been taken in by a stripper named Akemi whom he once saved, Jin begins to live a quiet and normal life - though in reality he is anything but ordinary. With superhuman abilities and a group of mysterious men searching for him under the name of Zet, over the years Jin finds himself drawn into a world of creatures with dangerous powers called "Players". But what is Jin really, and with his vicious methods of defeating these threats, is he really a hero for justice or simply another dangerous monster?
These two animes have similar basic themes. Both have superhuman characters that fight a secret war mainly for the enjoyment of the rich. Survival is key. Though Deadman is showed in a prison, Zetman displays what happens when superhumans get loose. Great show. Tons of action, and gore.
Very similar shows in tone/style about science fiction universes with superpowered individuals and lot of gratuitous violence.
as not a fan of deadman wonderland, in a way zetman is very similar in the fact in zetman the character has to deal with obtaining something and trying to live with what he obtained.
In secret, alien parasites drift downwards toward Earth. Their directive: to take control of a human body and thrive in secret. When a parasite attempts to take over Shinji, an ordinary high school student, he stops it in his arm to save his mind. With the strange power of amorphous muscle, the curious parasite strikes an uneasy truce with Shinji: it will keep him alive and strong so that it may continue living, and will help protect him from the other parasites that might not take kindly to Shinji's mind still actively working. Can Shinji gain the courage to face the parasites and protect humanity? And would it even make a difference if he did?
In both shows, the main character gains gruesome superpowers that he doesn't want, and said powers end up changing their entire lives.
both of them are a little gory, a little depressing, but still have plenty of action. I'd say parasyte is better, but deadman is pretty good too.
Gorey with monsters and crazy plots between monsters and humans and monsters vs. monsters. Takes a look at the negatives and positives of both humans and monsters and gives you perspectives of both sides. Both have crazy villains and awesome main characters that grow and change as the series progresses.
Maebara Keiichi, an ordinary high-school boy, has transferred to a new school in Hinamizawa, a small rural village. At the outset everything seems peaceful and Keiichi becomes friends with a nice group of schoolgirls with whom he spends many idle summer afternoons. Suddenly violence encroaches upon the blissful peace of the village and Keiichi becomes entangled in an endless cycle of fear and death. The inconsistent, but inevitable horrors of Hinamizawa are told and retold becoming an endless and inescapable nightmare of insanity. Will it end even if the mystery of Hinamizawa is solved?
Both animes, give a sense of mystery, as the story slowly unfolds by itself, usually leading to a big twist. Also if your really into loads blood, then this anime is for you!
If you love blood and a good story, you're going to love them. In both anime the characters are trapped in a world they want to break free from. While trying to break free, they will walk down a path filled with gore and madness. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other one as well.
