If you liked the Deadman Wonderland anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
Following the disaster wrought upon the world by a mysterious being called ‘Akira’, Neo Tokyo is now in social and economic turmoil. In such a decaying city, feisty Kaneda and his shy friend Tetsuo survive by running around in a biker gang, chasing local rivals and generally evading the police. Everything changes, however, when Tetsuo crashes into a strange-looking boy during a bike chase and the military ends up taking him away. When he eventually returns to his friends, he’s no longer the same weak little boy they always knew – in fact, a military experiment has turned him into something beyond human imagination. While the military is intent on reclaiming its specimen at any cost, Tetsuo is sick of being bullied around and is about to show everyone, including his friend Kaneda, exactly who is boss.
In the interest of honesty, I found Akira to be incredibly overrated and boring (both times I saw it over the course of 10 years), but others tend to love it. That being said, both it and the more recent Deadman Wonderland have a lot of the same themes - experimentations and superpowers, terrorism, dystopia, etc. Both are plenty violent as well, though Akira's dated animation can't really compare to Deadman Wonderland. Fans of one may enjoy the other.
In a world where supernatural beings known as youmu are hunted by Spirit World Warriors, Akihito lives an eventful life. He’s a half-breed from a human mother and a youmu father, and is immortal - a fact that saves his life on a regular basis, for his bespectacled classmate Mirai can’t seem to stop stabbing him in the chest. She’s a Spirit World Warrior with the power to control her blood, which she manifests into a sword; and with low self esteem about her abilities to hunt youmu, Mirai constantly uses Akihito as target practice. In hopes of being left alone, Akihito must now help Mirai gain confidence to take down sinister youmu.
If you liked the manipulation of blood as a weapon in Beyond the Boundary then Deadman Wonderland is a must watch. both these shows are EXTREMELY emotional and will have you bawling your eyes out! Deadman Wonderland is more shounen and Beyond the Boundary is more shoujo but.. if for some bizzare reason your first thought after finishing the beyond the boundary series was "Kuriyama's power was pretty cool..." watch Deadman Wonderland.
In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness. With the undying love and support of her family and friends, she struggles to gain the strength to move forward and regain the pieces of her shattered memories.
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?
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan using powerful mecha known as Knightmares; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, in the middle of a terrorist attack, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
If you liked Deadman Wonderland, I think you'd like Code Geass because they are both about revenge. In DW, Ganta is framed for murder and seeks his vengence against the Red Man. In Geass, Lelouch sets his sights against Britania in order to protect his sister. Not only are the elements of vengence the same, but there are supernatural power similarities as well. Ganta gains powers from the Red man, while Lelouch gains a mysterious power called Geass from a mysterious girl called C2.
