Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Yagami Light finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
Sometimes the greatest distance is between people. Whether a man alienates himself from society with a façade of cheerfulness, or two friends fail to communicate their feelings of betrayal, invisible barriers plague mankind. Although love should bring people together, when a stoic renter and a dutiful monk choose to court a widow’s daughter, their mutual affections drive a bitter gap between them. During each encounter filled with mistrust and despair, the flaws of human nature slowly reveal themselves...
This recommendation is for the first arc of Aoi Bungaku (No Longer Human, eps 1-4). The character designs were created by the same person as were Death Note's, and they're so distinctive, it's impossible not to be reminded of each other. Both center around an attractive, charismatic (though incapable of forming real relationaships for one reason or another) young man and his slipping sanity. No Longer Human and the more mellow parts of Death Note have very similar tones.
The rec. kind of works for a few other arcs, too. These are the only two series where I've ever seen the protagonist write so frantically, for instance.
For the first story arc of aoi bungaku.
Bouth sereies have a lot to do with morallity and phicology. THe main charecters of bouth have simmiler views on life pshycologeys and bouth have a very simmiler animation style and bouth bring up the question what is reallly murder.
You should like this ^_^
Same studio and similar feel. Aoi Bungaku is more of a horror though.
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.
Both Play on the enivibility of Death and the Evil in the world but in one you ahve an eo Character who does the killing with the world domination and new world order in mind for himself, with the other you have a badass Vampire trying to correct the mistakes of the past by stopping the onslaught of the monsters and the twin who wants to rule the world, both have the 2 sides of the same coin scenario but you see the perspective differently in each, very interesting watch.
The concept of death is a key factor in both Blood + and Death Note, death is an inevitable thing for everyone and both these series explore the good and evil sides about it. The outcome is likely to be the same yet the perspectives are entirely different.
Death note and blood plus are very atmospheric anime with strong chaercters and supernatural thems. bouth also have a lot of mystery and tension in the plots. bouth also have animation that focise a lot on shadowing.
22-year-old Ryouta is an unemployed good-for-nothing who spends his days living at home and playing Btooom, a wildly popular online game that's sold over three million copies worldwide. Alongside other teammates, Ryouta battles it out with others using powerful bombs and sonar that can reveal hidden enemies, and his dedication has earned him the title of Japan's top player. But soon, Ryouta's pastime becomes a terrifying reality, as he and many others are dropped onto a tropical island and forced to play Btooom – but this time for real. Now, he and the rest must fight to the death by whatever means necessary, as the only way to win this deadly game is by killing seven of the other players.
In both of these shows the protaginst is given the choice to cause death to someone. They both give me the same mystery/tragic feel and gauge interest by focusing on points that animes usually avoid.
By writing down a name you can make someone disapear.
Both are about several people having to fight against each other after being put into situations that they are given powers to control life or death. Both are darker. There is also a hint at the choice of morality and playing god. Decent action in both also.
Both of these animes are very similar in the approach taken to kill someone. To kill someone, strategy is the key component and outwitting the enemy is what is most important. Also the power felt when being in control of a situation has the same feel for both.
Sakura Sakurakouji may seem like a frail and demure girl, but in reality she’s a powerful martial artist with an unmatched sense of justice. One day, on her way home from school, she witnesses a boy murdering several people with bright blue flames. That boy is Rei Ogami, a merciless assassin known as a "Code Breaker", and the latest student to join Sakura’s class! While Rei appears to be the perfect gentleman at school, in truth he lives by the principle of "an eye for an eye" and is hired to target and dispose of criminals who have escaped the law. With everyone oblivious to his true nature, only Sakura knows what he really is and his remorseless feelings towards what he does. But despite his icy heart and his threat to burn Sakura and everyone around her should she reveal his secret, the righteous teen can’t help but feel that there’s more to Rei than meets the eye...
These anime are essentially the same, Code:Breaker is just more action-oriented where as Death Note is more logic and thinking. They both deal with a teenage boy who kills any criminal not being judged (or not being judged well enough) by the law. Ogami and Light are also very similar characters in that they can be nice and charismatic, but also cold and calculating. There's also an irritating female main character in both of them, though Sakura is significantly more annoying than Misa. Both of these anime explore the morals of a death penalty and who has the right to pass judgement on criminals and who doesn't; as well as despite killing people being evil, does killing criminals actually make the world a better place?
Both of these anime develop their plot around the exploration of the meaning and limits of justice, asking tough questions about who has the right to judge and kill criminals.
Both animes are Awesome but in Code Breaker characters do not afraid of anything.In Death note he must hide himself from the police.
Shinichi Kudo is a famous teenage detective who idolizes Sherlock Holmes and solves difficult cases with ease. One day, after a fun day at the theme park with his childhood friend Ran, Shinichi witnesses something suspicious and is knocked unconscious. What’s worse, he’s forced to take a deadly, experimental drug that shrinks his body to the age of seven. To protect himself and his loved ones from those who may want to finish the job, Shinichi dons the new name Conan Edogawa and moves in with Ran, whose father is a famous detective, in hopes of closing cases that can lead him to the men in black. But little does Shinichi know just how dangerous these men, and their cause, are...
If you loved Death Note for its impressive intellectual side, you will surely love Detective Conan. The thought process he uses every time to solve a case impresses more than the last time. Its simply amazing how Shinichi can solve cases on such little evidence.
Case Closed and Death Note are two mystery anime. Death Note focuses on mystery, and Detective Conan focuses on a bunch of mysteries. If you are the type of person who loves certain anime because they solve mysteries in them, then watch both of these series.
You will absolutely love Detective Conan if you're Death Note fan that is looking for another smart thinking concept of the anime. They both possessed very good intelligent. Shinichi can be compared to Light for the fact that they are smart and thinks logically. But Shinichi's role here is to solve mysteries in crimes. There are tons of episodes of Detective Conan and each one of it will make you wanna stay all night watching it. As well as its movies.
