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?

Set in a parallel universe to Kara no Kyoukai, FSN has many similar elements; indeed, Tomoe Enjou of Movie 5: Paradox Spiral is something of the precursor to FSN's hero Shirou Emiya.  The magical system, general vibe, and level of dark and violence is similar throughout all the material from TYPE-MOON, and while visual and plot parallels between KnK and TYPE-MOON's Tsukihime are more apparent, there are fun little references in KnK to things such as the "Counter Force" that are tied to the character of Archer in FSN.  While FSN is perhaps not quite as well-executed as KnK is, the basis on which both sit is solidly felt in either show and will be all the more apparent once the producers of KnK get finished with the FSN prequel Fate/Zero.

The feel of both anime is similar at times, aswell as some of the styles of animation used during the action scenes. They are both pretty serious and rarely detract from the main plot for the sake of humour. They are both action packed and visually impressive. They both deal a lot with the morals and philosophy around war and fighting. Both of the main protagonists are in high school, and are chosen by a very powerful and beautiful female assistant, who begins the series far more powerful than them, but the gap bridges as the series progresses. These female assistants are similar in demeanour, as they are humourless cold, but likeble for this very fact. They also both lived in another time.Infact these female protagonists have so much in common it's a reason alone to watch both. If one of the main things you liked about one series was the female protagonist, be prepared to fall in love again. Fighting with reference to ruling kingdoms/empires, and family ties is touched upon often in both series. It dosen't seem like many, if any others have linked these series together, which suprises me, as they share a lot of good points, so i think you may find what you liked about one in the other.

Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

If you like Fate/stay night, I feel that you will definitly like Angel Beats! Angel Beats! has the strange mysterious feeling for a while as well. The main character has a case of amnesia, doesn't know what exactly is going on, but still jumps in to on an impulse.

Fate Stay Night and Mai-Otome are quite similar in the general theme they posses. Both are quite dramatic in plot line, with a dark premise of people fighting each other with their own guardians. The storyline does differ in what they what to obtain, Mai-Otome is to save the world whereas Fate Stay Night is to obtain the Holy Grail and be able to make a wish.

Although Hero Tales doesn't involve as much magic as fate stay night does, I think that the epic battles as well as the way they show the relations of the characters prove to be similar. If you liked one, I would definitely give the other a chance.
