Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?
Both Deadman Wonderland and Speed Grapher at very similar for many reasons. The main characters in their respective series are forced to fight or flight and are infused with special powers which they use to protect/save their friends/love interests. There are provocative scenes, character deaths, and lots of gore. If you're interested in more mature types of anime then these are for you.
Also there are characters that use their blood as weapons in both anime :) If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.
While the plots between Deadman Wonderland and Speed Grapher diverge quite a bit, there are a few important elements which they share... Both involve a protagonist with some kind of a special power who is fundamentally trying to do good, both involve a special relationship between this protagonist a mysterious girl who also has some kind of uber-special power, and both take place in a climate where a few powerful/elite bosses are pulling the strings on everything and exploiting the special powers of our characters for personal gain in a market of perverted rich people.
Hope’s Peak Private Academy is a super-exclusive institute that gathers the best and the brightest, provides them with a world-class education, and propels them into any career they wish. At least, that’s what the average student Naegi used to think. Having been accepted into a class of 15 students through a lottery system, the boy quickly comes to learn that Hope’s Peak is no ordinary school. In reality, he and the group find themselves trapped inside and learn that the only way to "graduate" is to murder a fellow student and fool everyone in a trial that determines life or death! Led by the whimsically-cruel, teddy-bear-like Monobear, Naegi and the others must do whatever it takes to escape this bizarre, deadly game.
Both is struggle to surivial.
Both are kill or get killed
Both are characters(most) doesn't want kill but forced to
Both deal with a survival type game. With all students, it also applies a test of wits and strength ^^ Also, the plots don't fully revolve around killing as an end result (unlike mirai nikki); Both have characters that work to escape.
60 years ago, a strange case of insomnia struck the population, forcing them to stay awake for more than a full week. The victims, completely sleep deprived, all went mad. To cure this illness, a new medicine was produced, but the side effects turned the patients into vampires. Humanity went to war against this new species and triumphed, but some of the vampires managed to survive. Born from a Human and a Vampire, the main character Mi Liu, “The Child of Hope”, is to represent the new hope that will connect the two species. Ringleader of a bank robbery, Mi Liu is arrested and transferred to a special prison of the National Defense Agency that monitors Vampires. Trying to break free with Anji, Mi Liu is attacked by strange monsters and he finds out that the prison location corresponds to the birthplace of Vampires, the old capital “Blue Town." Why are Vampires trapped in Blue Town? What are those strange monsters attacking them? Our heroes must fight to solve those mysteries.
Both of these series follow a young man wrongly accused of murder. In both, the protagonist is taken to a strange prison where survival isn't guaranteed. Oh, and he has super blood powers. So, if you liked one, check out the other.
The main characters are taken as prisoners, as they try to escape/explore, they discover newfound powers.
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.
Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
Perhaps a bizare recommendation, but Teito (07-Ghost) is a former slave who is also betrayed and eventually seeks his vengenace against those he trusted. Whereas in DW, Ganta was framed by the Red Man for murder and seeks to avenge his classmates' deaths. In both shows there are elements of supernatural powers. The main similarity between the two is that both characters can't remember their pasts. Ganta can't remember what happened to him ten years ago, and Teito can't remember what happened to him before he came to the military. DW has more blood and gore, but Ghost is not lacking in action, and with many twists and turns, it will keep you throughly entertained.
