Ouri is an orphan who was raised by Keisei, a man he considers to be his older brother. One night, Ouri finds a strange wounded girl in the temple of the orphanage.

After secretly watching Keisei heal the girl without explanation, Ouri decides it's time to leave the nest. However, he has picked a poor time, and he soon realizes that he's tangled in a strange, supernatural web. Why does Ouri continually meet this girl as she hunts monsters? What does Keisei have to do with it all and what exactly is her mission?
Both have anime that have chicks kicking ass against the undead with some help from their male counterparts. Highschool of the Dead is way more fanservicey but both have lots of action and plenty of violence. Check out one if you liked the other.
God forsook the world on a Sunday, leaving mankind unable to stop living - even long after they've died. The sole hope left for humanity comes in the form of gravekeepers; only a burial by one of these chosen few will allow the deceased to finally rest in peace. Ai is a young girl who serves as gravekeeper for her sleepy village, taking over the job after her mother’s death five years ago. However the tranquility is shattered when Ai returns from digging graves to find that everyone in town has been slaughtered, and the culprit is a young man going by the same name as her long-lost father: Hampnie Hambart. Forced to lay to rest everyone she's ever known, Ai must now forge her own path into the unfamiliar world in search of answers.
Okay probably the only thing similer are the undead. The thing is I think if you like Highschool of the dead you'll like Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi. Another similarity is it both focus on the point of veiw from a child though the situation is alot more dire in HOTD and he is older while shes only 12 and its been 15 yrs after it first began (i think). I enjoyed both so if you like HOTD im pretty sure you'll like Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi.
Rhiannon is the fair and gentle daughter of a village chief. Unfortunately for her, she's also exactly the sort of maiden who is needed as a sacrifice to wake the Demon King Arawn from his thousand-year slumber and is soon kidnapped for this very purpose. However, when Arawn is summoned, he decides to spare Rhiannon's life, instead killing her captor and freeing her from mind control. Taken with his kindness, Rhiannon immediately decides to marry the Demon King, making him the new village chief. All of this is bad news for Rhiannon's protective but hot-headed brother Arthur, who must now pledge his knightly service to his new Lord, Arawn. Together the three of them must journey and together they must fight, encountering new friends and new foes along the way.
Tears to Tiara and Highschool of the Dead are both very similar to me, due to the dumbing down of characters rational thoughts. The storyline of both series progresses quickly, as different characters deliver weak, melodramatic speeches that instantly change the mind of everyone. They also have breathtaking graphics, and likeable characters.

Both series involve a group making their way across a city that has been faced with a great disaster while doing their best to survive. As one of their main themes, both series examine the affects such disasters can have on people and how they treat each other when faced with choices that can mean their survival at the expense of others.
