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.

GeorgeJQ GeorgeJQ says

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.

Nagi no Asukara

Nagi no Asukara

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...

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.

Flarezo Flarezo says

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.

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.

Gaeryc Gaeryc says

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.

ShinigamiRULES ShinigamiRULES says

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.
