Synopsis:

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

These anime are bloody, grafic, violent, and lewd.

I really loved how similar they were. They both had moments where I was screaming, " Oh My F**ken God Did You See That S**t!"

Both of these had their main character that just wanted to mind their own business, but were pulled in against their will.

Noein

Noein

When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.

If you like Sci-fi where the characters are well developed and people posses great power in alternate realities then you would surely like both of these animes.

Paranoia Agent

Paranoia Agent

These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

Made in the same year, these two shows have a very similar animation style and feel. Both seem a little out-of-this-world and have a strange aspect of violence. The violence and explicit content of Gantz is much more, but both are dark and mature.

Although the plot of the two series have nothing in common, there are some similarities in both series. There is gore and the nudity in both series as well as the mindconfusing plotchanges and somewhat confusing scene transistions.

Serial Experiments Lain

Serial Experiments Lain

"I have only abandoned my body, I still live here" - are the words emailed to friends of Chisa, several days after her death by suicide. As Lain delves deeper into the world of the "Wired" (also known as the internet), the line between it and reality becomes more and more unclear. Close the world, open the nExt.
