In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.
Intense would be the word I would use to describe these two animes.
Psycho pass and Shinsekai Yori are both gripping dramas that occur in an dystopian future. They both raise some interesting questions about what would be a right or wrong choice when the world has moved so far ahead that conventional standards no longer apply. Would it be easy making the seemly "right" choice when it could result in countless deaths in the future? There are no easy answers, and these animes will have you glued to your seats as you watch the protagonist come to grips with these terms.
Both have strong female leads that develop as the series goes on. Both provide haunting futures for humanity, that have the veil of utopia stripped away by the thought provoking antagonists.
Both are very different animes compared to what is usually the norm, and have some type of deeper meaning and make you question societal conventions. Shinsekai Yori is a bit harder to understand, while Psycho Pass appeals more to the mass market.
Both of these animes take place in dystopian futures where a strong female protagonist and her comrades go through a mysterious, action-packed journey to discover the secrets behind the truth of their worlds. Thought-provoking themes and character complexities place these towards mature audiences and will thrill viewers with the depravity and darker aspects of their storytelling.
both animes have these underlying philosophical questions of what's right and wrong while being packed with action, both animes are a must watch if you're into complex stories
Both of them ask very profound philosophical questions about what is right and wrong, and questions the ethics/morals of their and our society.
There is also enough suspense and action in both to not be tedious to watch.
It will capture you from the first episode. It will have a grip on your heart as you debate between which is the lesser of the two evils. It will make you question your own morals, as you experience what the mains have gone through and what they do not know, but you do. But most of all it will make you think about yourself and what you do to effect the world.
The two animes stem from the same psychological aspect, but differ in many ways. One is action-oriented and the other is not so much. They both twist your brain, but still have you craving more with every episode. The major thing these both have in common is a very twisted psychological core layered with a great story in both cases,
Both are worlds that you know little about and the more you learn the more the world goes from a utopia to a distopia. Also both have a fair amount of mental warfare as well at physical so botha re great although i prefer from the new world,
Both are set in dystopian futures, where the central themes involve morality. Both involve characters who seek to understand the foundation of their society,
At their core, these two series revolve around a seemingly utopian future where latent troublemakers are taken into custody before they end up hurting others. Psycho-Pass and From The New World follow the story of a strong female protagonist who happen to play a key role in the antagonist's plan to destroy the flawed system that has been set in motion.
To wrap this up, both shows study the consequences of a world where citizens are corrupted by fear and how easily they accept their fate as pawns of a superficially perfect world.
Long ago, humans lived in the sea. However, some humans defied the Sea God and moved to the land, creating the division that now exists between Shioshishio, the Sea Village, and Oshiooshi, the village of the land. Now, four middle school students from the Sea Village, Manaka Mukaido, Hikari Sakishima, Chisaki Hiradaira, and Kaname Isaki must attend Mihama Middle School on the surface. While getting used to their new lives, these four and their new friend from the surface, Tsumugu Kihara, learn how true bonds of love and friendship can overcome any separation.
Nagi no Asukara and Shinsekai yori actually don't seem really similiar,and that is the truth, but both include a group of original 5 main characters together, and their interests in another in the same group. Both of them have music that is quite good too.( If you're like me and are a sucker for anime with good music )
They are different as Nagi no Asukara focuses more on the relationships and Shinsekai yori focuses on the dark stories, using the relationships as another factor into bringing the story up into the good story it is . Nagi no Asukara , compared to Shinsekai yori, is much more lighter and happier though.
After you go into both anime's, You will realise that both are more similiar than they seem at first glance. If you like one, You should at least give the other a try.
From the New World and Nagi no Asukara both have similar appearance and the animation is fascinating. Characters are full, complicated personages struggling with identity issues. Both series place the characters in different sceneries and ages. If an eventful plot is to your liking, I recommend both.
Both from the new world and nagi no asukara take place in world slightly different than the one we're in. At first glance they don't seem that similar, one's more light and happy while the other's a little more tense and thrilling, but when you look into it the plots of the 2 have a very similar feel and flow to them that i haven't seen in many other anime.
Both series are based around a group of friends that face various challenges along their journey into adulthood. While many of these events seem to be focused around the group's focal points, being Saki in from the new world or Hikari in nagi no asukara, the other characters still play a major role in how it playes out. All in all they're both great anime and if you liked one you'll probably like the other.
Both shows have 5 main characters, and in a way, two factions (sea people and land people ; rats and humans) which dislike eachother. The story itself isn't so similar but wathing one reminds me of another.
Both Nagi no Asukara and Sinsekai Yori are animes with superb animations and soundtracks. While their plots and overall genres differ, Nagi being a political drama and coming of age story, and Shinsekai being a corrupt distopian story, as you continue watching you realize the similarities. Both deal with a group of five teens all trying to discover themselves as individual and, while Nagi focues more on relationships, both deal with a somewhat unjust society and must struggle with dealing with it.
For a darker twist, Shinsekai Yori is an obvious choice. It brings psychological and graphic disorder to the table.
Nagi no Asukara being much more tame, it tugs at your heart strings while also having underlying symbolism of corrupt political stature.
On the surface, they look similar- five children as the protagionists. Indeed, when I first saw the key visuals for Nagi no Asukara the first thing I thought was 'Shin Sekai Yori'. And the similiarites actually run a bit deeper than that, even if the main stories are quite different (SSY is dark, NnA is dreamy). For example, both make use of time skips to show aspects of character growth. Both deal with prejudice against different groups. And, this sort of relates to my first point, but both stories are coming of age stories, although in SSY we really only see this for one charatcer, whereas the scope of this is wider in NnA.
And above all, these are both visually beautiful shows with lovely music.
Both anime shows a different type of world for humans. There is some struggle between the different types of humans/creatures.
In the distant future, the human race is on the brink of destruction. Mankind, which now drifts in space aboard a massive, technologically-advanced base known as Avalon, is poised to launch one final, desperate attack against its enemy, the alien race Hideauze. It’s during this battle that Ledo, a mecha pilot, is thrown into a wormhole and sent to an unfamiliar place: Earth, the lost birthplace of humanity said to have turned to ice long ago. Having been saved by the inhabitants of the Gargantia, a fleet of ships that traverses the now-flooded planet, Ledo must come to terms with these primitive people with their backwards language and technology, learn to communicate, and try to find a way back home to his place in the sky.
Gargantia and Shinsekai Yori are sci-fi animes. Otherwise, they have little in common, except that they are shining examples of sci-fi anime done well. Both have complex, layered stories that explore big questions through their characters. If you're big on sci-fi with a good plot/story, these two will both be of interest to you.
Scifi, weird world, dark secrets... Altought gargantia is absolutely more light than from the new world. Both have great atmosphere and can really make you think.
Gargantia and shinsekai yori are actually quite similiar to each other. Starts with the main character, born into the world only following what the adults say and well, dark secrets are revealed, and if you actually follow it through for both animes , you'll find out that they are really similiar.They get decieved by lies and it all makes you think about the psychological part of it all.
The difference is that it is in different worlds and that shinsekai yori has a darker aspect to it compared to gargantia.
These shows are surprisingly similar. It takes a while for the plot to unfold and for the deeper secrets to be revealed, but the process of discovering what is truly going on behind the scenes is what makes each show worthwhile. Both shows explore the deep psychological themes of loyalty, friendship, loss, honesty, and secrets and focus not only on a group of friends, but also on the larger political system of the world. These are both excellent shows and if you liked one, I think you will like the other.
These are both anime that really make you sit back and consider the definition of 'humanity'. Definitely worth a watch if you like a deep, thoughtful anime!
Tarou has dreams - distressing dreams, related to the trauma he suffered as a child. His dreams and visions disturb his ease of mind, constantly reminding him of the darkness of his fear at the time he lost his sister all those years ago. He relives the fear, but can't recall any of the details of the time. Now, a new transfer student, Masayuki, takes an interest in Tarou's troubled past, as well as their school mate Makoto's connection to the dark incident. Under his persistence, the three boys end up visiting the site where Tarou was held hostage as a child: a decrepit hospital beyond the dam. The three venture forward to face their pasts and fears, unsuspecting of the bizarre world they are about to enter...
Both Stories focus on a theme of psychology and the relationship between coming of age and the world that shapped you.
A plot revolving around spirits and the world of magic in a serious setting makes both series a wonderous story.
The biggest similarity between these two anime is the overall feel that they give off. They have very little similarities plot wise, but they're both unorthodox horror stories. And also, while the animimation isn't exatly the same, they both very... brown... and the way the spirits in ghost hound and certain creatures in Shin Sekai are drawn is similar.
While the protagonists and the plot are remarkably different, when I saw this reccomendation I couldn't help thinking that they're very similar. Even the animation looks similar, the colour play is very remarkable. Shinsekai yori didn't give me the shivers like Ghost Hound did sometimes, but I watched the latter much, much earlier and I think that Shinsekai Yori would've scared me more back then. Both develop in a very interesting way and they're not your common, mainstream anime. They definitely keep you on the edge of the seat, even though they feel surprisingly slow paced.
Centuries ago, humanity carelessly ravaged the Earth’s environment, forcing them to leave and form a colony elsewhere. To prevent the same mistakes from happening again, they allow a supercomputer to run their lives. Children are genetically engineered and at the age of fourteen take ‘adulthood exams’, a process whereby the supercomputer ensures they are suitable for membership in this perfect society. Those who pass have their memories erased and are guided into the next stage of their life; those who fail are immediately destroyed. Jomy is a boy about to take his adulthood exams, but things go terribly wrong when a man wreathed in light interrupts the process. He is a Mu -- an aberration, a new generation of human with extraordinary powers usually detected and eliminated by the supercomputer. This man tells Jomy he too is a Mu and introduces him to the Mu society. They are a rebel group in hiding from the oppressive human regime, who live in the hope that they will find a life of peace on Earth some day. Can Jomy leave behind all that he has known, come to terms with his awakening powers, and help the Mu return to their beloved Terra?
1. Both anime follow the lives of a few children as they grow up (shown via time skips).
2. Psychic powers exist in both worlds. Specifically, psychic powers gradually develop in human beings due to evolution. As a result, some human beings do not possess psychic powers (most of the humans in Toward the Terra).
3. As a result of a deteriorating world, the previous generations of both anime worked to control their societies through cruel means. As both anime progress, the protagonists discover the conspiracies and fight to protect what they care about.
So you're interested in a story about a society with psychic powers. Ok. But you'd like those powers to have rules and downsides. Sure. And maybe there's a power-struggle between those who have power and those that don't. Absolutely.
Well you just described Toward the Terra and Shin Sekai Yori, both stories about cultures that seem like they're well-adjusted and maybe a dash utopian but are turned on their head by the young, well-meaning but inquisitive protagonist.
Both have heaping handfuls of action and conflict, but what sets them apart is the shades of gray morality. You'll find that people do bad things for good reasons, and vice versa. It's difficult to pinpoint who's the true evil, and that makes for a dynamic cast and a storyline that will draw you in. Set some time aside, because once you start you'll want to marathon until the end!
Both shows raise questions about humanity, morality, and species' drive to survive and evolve. While the settings are different the themes explored are similar, and the writing is subtle and inspired. We get to see the progression of time and how key characters grow. These shows require patience and careful observation on the part of the viewer, but represent some of the best storylines anime has to offer, and go beyond typical anime in being geuinely thought provoking.
