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...
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 E's Otherwise, you would like Gode Geass because both series are stories of friends who by mere circumstances end up on different sides. Both are sci-fi stories set in war-ravaged countries with just about the same feeling. If you liked E's Otherwise, you're gonna love Code Geass.
For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!
Both DNAngel and E's Otherwise are impossibly good. The stories mainly revolve around a young boy who is forced to face the difficulties of the world, just for the fact that he was born to be special. They find love and they also find deep sadness, and discover that people are not how they seem to be. Some of their enemies eventually become allies and some of the allies eventually become their enemies as the stories progress along.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
The lead male characters in both E's Otherwise and Fate/stay night are extremely similar. They both want to do what's right and save everyone they can, but along the way they both begin to doubt exactly who they're fighting for and why they're fighting. Both series also have a fair amount of action, F/SN more so than E's. If you enjoy the characters and the action in one, you'd surely like the other.
In a post-apocalyptic future, gangs of savage thugs prey on the fleeting remnants of civilization, raiding them for food and water in the endless wasteland the world has become. Humankind's only hope for the future may lie in a young girl with an amazing ability and in the only man powerful enough to protect her and punish evil--Ken, the Fist of the North Star!
In the year 200X, World War III began. Special bombs destroyed parts of cities such as Tokyo, leaving decimation in their wake. Decades later, ground zero in Tokyo – an isolated section known as the Black Spot – remains an enigma. Its residents known as Needless possess strange powers such as the ability to control fire or telekinesis, and are constantly hunted down by Simeon, a large pharmaceutical company with sinister motives and Needless of their own to do their bidding. Young Cruz is part of a resistance to fight against Simeon and its Needless figurehead leader, Adam Arclight; but after the resistance is brutally killed by Simeon’s minions, he finds himself saved by a motley crew: Professor Gido, scantily-clad Eve and badass Blade. Together, the gang fends off Simeon’s attacks and tries to discover the truth behind the corporation’s actions. What is Simeon really after, and why do they desperately want to find Fragments?
With an almost identical plot (part of a city destroyed, strange corporation using people with powers to hunt others with the same powers etc) and extended fights, E's and Needless are two peas in a pod. Note that I didn't particularly like either though.
