Synopsis:

In the not too distant future, discrimination is based not on the color of your skin, but the psychic powers you possess. The wielders of these skills (known as E's) are persecuted in the slums of Gald, but are coveted in Ashuram, a military organization dedicated to enhancing these abilities for mysterious purposes. For one man named Kai, his journey from one of Ashuram's best to one of Gald's finest will take him through the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy not only all E's, but all humans on the planet as well...

Scryed

Scryed

Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.

The easiest comparison for E's Otherwise is Scryed. Both involve a schism within a group of people who have mysterious powers; both have a great mix of fast action and interesting plots.
kamirura
Magic and people with unnatural powers? is that what you're looking for. Then you should check out Scryed. It's truly a great series and it got everything you could wish for.
kerhunge
Yes, I'll concede. It's pretty much a ripoff of Scryed with a slightly different storyline, with scryed being the superior of the two. Watch E's otherwise first, so you can appreciate Scryed that much more!
sublime
The comparisons between the plots of both Scryed and E-s Otherwise are many if not stupidly identical. Super powered human beings in a post-apocalyptic future. An organisation trying to bring peace to a ravaged land, but with an ulterior motive. However you're looking at Scryed being the superior of these two series.
sothis
It's easy to think of E's Otherwise as a Scryed ripoff, but it's not that simple in reality. True, the corollations between the two series is fairly heavy as far as plot, but the overall pacing and feel is not. E's is very slice of life/episodic in a way, for quite awhile, whereas Scryed is more heavily based on action and plot the entire time. Nevertheless, the animation will please you in both, the action is great, the stories are interesting, and all in all, I don't see why you'd dislike one if you liked the other.

If you liked E's Otherwise, you would like Scryed because  quite frankly its basically the same story. They are so much alike storywise that I'm not hundred-percent sure that I could put the correct title on just a summary of one of them.

Well, it would be stupid not to recommend E's Otherwise if you are looking for anime that are similar to s-CRY-ed, or the opposite not recommend s-CRY-ed if you liked E's. The two are very similar, but unlike other reviewers I do not find them identical. The animation style is different, the presentation is different, and even if the plot is somewhat similar I can name quite a few anime where main characters have special powers and battle with/against a might-be-evil organization.

sorgesol

If you enjoy watching a young man with interesting abilities go up against a corrupt organisations and other people with interesting abilities, then either of these shows should do.

Tokyo Underground

Tokyo Underground

Beneath Tokyo lies a city whose inhabitants have inherited a natural ability to control the elements. After a civil uprising, two girls surface from the sub-terra in a bid to escape from this secret world. Together, Chelsea and Ruri  stumble upon Asagi Rumina, a man who becomes determined to protect them from those who would pursue the maiden of life. After a close encounter with death, Rumina learns that he must develop a skill of his own to keep his newfound friends safe, especially as it seems to be his responsibility to stop the impending doom rising to take over the planet’s surface. Will his power of wind be enough to take on The Company, or will he be forced to kneel before those brandishing electricity, ice and shadow?

If you liked E's otherwise you should check out Tokyo Underground. It definitely got the same magic and power discovering. Though E's otherwise feels a bit more serious than Tokyo Underground but I still think you would like it alot. It got nice and crisp coloring to as E's Otherwise.
kerhunge
Another series based losely on the scryed theme, however TU sways further away than E's Otherwise. Clean and crisp visuals and slightly goofy characters make up this anime
sublime
Hard to not make comparisons between this series, Scryed and E-s Otherwise. However E-s Otherwise takes itself a little more seriously than Tokyo Underground. You still have super powered teenagers and a big corporation at the heart of it all, so a good watch nonetheless

an anime that shows a world with many espers, different from this one that only shows elemental users but both involve superpowers

Witch Hunter Robin

Witch Hunter Robin

STN is a secret organization charged with capturing witches of all ages who misuse their inate ability of the Craft. Its newest recruit is a young girl named Robin, who wields the same power that she is helping to control. While skillful at their ability to detain quickly, the number of witches keeps seeming to increase, and the misuse of power grows stronger, casting a shadow of doubt as to what is really going on. For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...

Witches is all I can say. The character development is the same as in E's otherwise and in this one it's more an old style of hunting witches than a new one. It's magic from beginning to the end. I'm sure you gonna love Witch hunter Robin if you enjoyed E's otherwise.
sothis
Though Witch Hunter Robin is remarkably more dark, it definitely is similar as far as the raw plot, but also the general dark feeling of it. Admittedly this dark feel is only around in E's during the very first and last parts, but it's not a huge stretch to think you'd WHR if you liked E's.
blue666

Both animes contain characters with psychic/magic powers. Normal people hate those with psychic/magic powers, and thus the psychics are allowed a limited use of their powers. But not all care about that, some misuse their powers. Then there are those people in organizations with secret objectives who want to control the psychics/witches. Both animes contain may fights, as well as a small touch of romance.

Ayashi no Ceres

Ayashi no Ceres

There is a legend of an angel who fell to Earth many years ago, and was forced to marry a man because he held the key to her only way home. Hundreds of years later, sixteen year old Mikage Aya is the reincarnation of Ceres, the vengeful angel, who must now fight for her life against her family and her own twin brother Aki, the reincarnation of her past evil husband...

If you're looking for the same sort of theme you should check this out. But Ayashi No Ceres got alot more romance and is more focused on two characters. But still a close call to E's otherwise.
sothis
If dark and sinister undertones under the veil of an experiment gone wrong is your thing, you'd enjoy both Ayashi no Ceres and E's. Though AnC is definitely more romance based and girlie, both are very similar in a number of ways, including the overall feel.

She's the most technologically advanced cyborg, and everyone is attempting to get their hands on her, but this hard-hitting femme fatale is determined to find the source behind the pursuit. Armitage 3 is an enjoyable anime movie if you enjoy a lot of superhuman fighting.
