Denpa Teki na Kanojo and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni both deal with murder and mystery as a concrete theme, so blood and elements of horror is imminent. Right in the begining of the animes is the introduction to some blood and murder. For the people that have already seen Higurashi, a character in DTnK resembles closely to Rena, almost as if they were twins. In the end of the first episode of both animes, they leave you wanting more!!!

So so alike! Higurashi is more sinister but Denpa is also really mystirious. Its a must watch if you liked Higurashi and vice-versa

The two series take a seemingly average school life and drag it though the mud, having it's hopless male lead wind up in horrible siuations that would not be have happened if these crazed women had just left them alone.

Yes, whether big city or small village, the murder plots are written amazingly well and you never know where the next twist is coming from.

Airotia Airotia says...

Both center on a mystery-esque theme with teenagers, which quickly escalates into something that is horrific enough to tear at the very fabric of their minds. They're both psychological, with them dealing with the killings and trying to prevent it in whatever ways they can. Each deal with how people percieve reality and what it looks like when people start losing their grip.

The main difference between them is that the supernatural element is somewhat more omnipresent in Higurashi (in certain arcs), and Higurashi has the 'reset button' that goes off in between each arc. There is a slight supernatural element to Denpa Teki na Kanojo, but it's mostly only mentioned. In both, it is... debatable as to whether or not the supernatural element exists, and is probably just in the minds of the protagnosists.

Kara no Kyoukai Movie 1: Fukan Fuukei

When an odd string of suicides begins to occur at a local high rise building, most of the townsfolk treat it as an unfortunate series of events. One girl, however, senses something more sinister at work - especially when a close friend of hers falls mysteriously ill. After witnessing one of the deaths for herself, Shiki begins to realize that a strange connection exists between each of the girls, and predicts a total of eight will die. With seven dead and the accuracy of her prediction unclear, she sets out to put an end to the killings. Yet, as she nears the truth, she finds herself closer and closer to the brink of death; will Shiki become the town's savior, or the next victim?

both animes deal with murder and mystery aspects that deep implanted, both animes have a very well defined horror aspect (more intense in Kara no Kyoukai).If you like one of this two, try the other one as well.

Both share many similarities. They focus on the dark, twisted, grizzly, gory, mysterious nature of the human mind pushed to it's limits. Highly recommended.

Wanginator Wanginator says...

There's certainly a similarity between both series, despite the big differences in storyline and plot. The atmosphere in both are almost identical, as is the style of storytelling. And at the center of each is a female lead that is shrouded in mystery when you first meet her. So if you liked the "mood" that you felt when watching one, you'll definitely enjoy the other.

Mailtiger Mailtiger says...

Both 'Kara no Kyoukai' series & 'Denpa Teki na Kanojo' gives similar dark, interesting feel with a pinch of romance in it... both are female leads though their characters vary (like 'Shiki' being more murderous, tsundere, 'Ame' is little bit more relevied of murderous instinct & more devoted to 'juu') both of them are quite similar when it comes to protecting their loved ones... if you like one please try other, you are sure to like it...

Mnemosyne

Mnemosyne

Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?

both animes deal with an astonishing mystery aspect (better defined in Mnemosyne), a extreme horror aspect and both have many bloody scenes.Both animes have mature/sexual themes (way better developed in Mnemosyne).In both animes we see female characters as main protagonists.If you like one of this two you will definitely like the other one as well.

Paranoia Agent

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Airotia Airotia says...

Both are psychological and have a lot to do with how people percieve reality. To each part of Denpa Teki there is a mystery/investigation element which escalates into a psychological drama with elements of violence thrown in... which is a lot like the formula for Paranoia Agent, except more centered on a small group of people, whereas Paranoia Agent shows the reaction and involvement of the Shounen Bat cases in a wide area.

Aoi Bungaku Series

Aoi Bungaku Series

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...

Airotia Airotia says...

While Aoi Bungaku is episodic and Denpa Teki is linear, Denpa Teki has a similar feel to some of Aoi Bungaku's storylines. Insanity and bloodlust with a tinge of supernaturality, they each give you a peek into the character's personal brands of crazy.

Denpa Teki has more blood and violence and is set in modern times, but they are both good 'horror' type anime.
