Psycho-Pass

Psycho-Pass

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.

The settings of both series seem to be the same: dark, gritty, and futuristic with some pretty kick-ass technology. That aside, the animation in both seem pretty top-notch, the music is amazing (in fact, the ED theme in Psycho-Pass is performed by EGOIST, a fictional band within Guilty Crown created by ryo of supercell with the vocalist Chelly), and both seem to have protagonists who seem to be initially weak in the sense of fighting, but are called upon to fight anyways. I should probably add that these are both Production I.G. anime, so I suppose its only natural that the animation seems so similar.

Blast of Tempest

Blast of Tempest

Hakaze, princess of the Kusaribe mage clan, has been betrayed and marooned on an island by her own people. They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic. The deal is made, and the battle that will determine civilization's fate is begun: but who will play the part of its villain, and who its savior?

1) Both animes are set in apocalyptic Japan

2) Both apocalypses are caused by a source that makes people´s body turn into crystal/metal

3) Main characters are bound by friendship

4) Some higher power (state, the powerful) is trying to suppress/kill them

both animes are very similar to each other,  its just that Guilty crown has mechas X Zetsuen has magic

With the same people behind them, both of these anime have some really noticeable similarities, starting with the cast of teenagers stuck inside a conflict on a big scale where they’re forced to act, or MC with newfound supernatural powers. With quite similar progression, pace and other elements such as supernatural powers or military shenanigans, these two will definitely appeal to the same audience. If you liked one, there’s a good chance you might like the other one. 

Shakugan no Shana

Shakugan no Shana

Sakai Yuuji thought he was a normal high school student, until one fateful day when time stopped. Watching in horror, he witnesses a monster devouring the "frozen" people around him; but luckily for Yuuji, he is saved by a sword-wielding red-headed girl that calls herself a "Flame Haze". The girl informs him that he has been dead for some time now and that his current self is merely a replacement for the human that he used be while alive. He is, she says, merely a torch whose life will come to an end when the blue flame in his chest ceases to burn. After this rude awakening, Yuuji realizes that he is able to see the flames of life in other "torches"; and after discovering that a friend of his is also a torch -- and her life is burning out faster than his – he gains the courage to live out the rest of his life with meaning. Will Yuuji be able to find his place in the world before he ceases to exist?

I can't believe no one thought about this. In blouth anime we have a maile and female main character, in bouth anime, the males start soft, than they get a "badd ass" feel, going to the other side for the sake of their friends, followers, but at the end they still reunite on the"good side" {some forever, wile other in their hears}.(watch bouth to see wicb and wich).

Bouth anime give a similar feel for the action,the chaaracters, the way the main female and male character interract.

Kamui has returned to Tokyo with a traumatizing past, but he is not the only one. Many people are returning to Tokyo for the same reason: they play a part in the End of the World. The Dragons of Earth and the Dragons of Heaven now must fight for the destruction or safety of the world. But is this troubled Kamui really the key to saving the world?

If you're familiar with Code Geass, you should also be familiar with X/1999 which is the kind of the foundation for Code Geass. Guilty Crown has a similar story and tone to X as both are dark, tragic, supernatural, and apocalyptic except that GC is more sci fi than X as X is more inclined to supernatural. Japan is the setting in both stories and serves as the battlefields as well which costs the character's lives episode by episode leaving the surviving characters the not so simple finale.
