Synopsis:

Akari has always known two things: she’s a skilled fortune teller, and she has an uncanny knack for growing huge, healthy plants. But after experiencing a traumatic tragedy the girl soon discovers the true horror of the world: there exist evil spirits known as Daemonia that infect people’s hearts and grant their hosts wishes in exchange for a contract. After the wish is fulfilled, the human is turned into a murderous monster, and only Sephiro Fiore, a group of girls who wield the powers of the Elemental Tarot, can put a stop to them. As the bearer of the Sun card, Akari must join Sephiro Fiore and help take down those possessed by Daemonia, no matter the cost.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...

I'm astonished that at the time of this recommendation, no one else has linked these two anime together. Day Break Illusion is a near carbon copy ripoff of Madoka Magica (which in turn is a near carbon copy ripoff of Bokurano, but that's another story ;) ). They're similar on basically all levels: reluctant girl who's fated to join a team of magical girls that have to take part in brutal battles in weird, dreamlike landscape; psychological/horror aspects with the deaths; even the super cutesy shoujo style. If you liked one I can't imagine not liking the other.

Bradalee

These two magical girl shows appear to be very similar to each other from the get go, and while they do have similarities, Day Break Illusion is not a rip-off of Madoka by any matter of means. What they do share is a cutesy art style that is in stark contrast to a darker story that contains the odd shocking scene. Beyond that the shows have as much in common with each other as any other magical girl show.

If you enjoyed Madoka then there's a high probability that you will find Day Break Illusion interesting, but the comparison should be treated as a solid starting point rather than crying rip-off.

KingArthur13th

Day Break Illusion and Madoka Magica are incredibly similar in their dark magical girl like taste but they also manage to be quite different. Both series contain a kind hearted girl who relunctantly becomes a magical girl and ends up learning the disturbing fate behind their new role. Both series revolve around sacrificing one's own being for the greater good of humanity.

Sasukefanx12

Because there are cutesy loli magical girls in both of these anime, you think it's gonna be some happy, girly series, but in fact they are both very dark. They both deal with fate, life and death...lots of death actually. They also both have to do with the price of having a wish granted and that nothing in this world is free. 

Karmillina

While both Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou and Puella Magi Madoka Magica have cutesy character designs, blood everywhere, and a nice touch of Design Student's Porn, each series has their own personality regardless of the similarities and is perfectly capable of standing on their own. For those into Magical Girls and adorable characters involved in dark, dark stuff... sandwiched between nice opening and ending music.

Rastamepas

Kind of hard not to recommend these two together. They are very much alike in multiple aspects. They both have a cast of cutesy like girls who all have very differing set of personalities. Both deal with magical girls fighting battles in dark wierd alternate areas. They also share the uncommon theme of a darker style story involving "shoujoish" style magical girls.

If you like one you will most likely enjoy the other, or at the very least similiar and interesting

Naga

While it may not be that similar in terms of plot, or charachters, it's hard not to notice the similarities between these two. Both deal with a really similar concept, and that is Mahou Shoujo with horror elements. Both have a cast of cutsy looking girls with different personalities, who fight monsters for a reason or two. 

If you liked one of them, there's a good chance you'll enjoy the other one as well. 

KinkyRice

If you like magical girls and moe but also a serious psychological plot and mild violence both series are for you. PMMM is a bit more on the psychological side than Day Break Illusion, but the latter makes it up with seriousness and also a bit more blood and violence. The characters are young but still relatable and they are as loveable as the PMMM girls. I highly reccomend these series.

LadyPsychic

Both are magical girl anime that have a dark twist to them.  Don't be fooled by these two series' cutesy moe-ish artstyles.  They both have a rather dark plot and lots of plot twists.  Personally, I thought Madoka Magica was the better of the two, but if you like dark magical girl shows then you will probably enjoy both.

Black Rock Shooter

Black Rock Shooter
  • OVA (1 ep x 50 min)
  • 2010

In a dark and dreary dimension, the mysterious Black Rock Shooter roams the desolate landscape with her gigantic gun, pausing only to battle against other mysterious super-powered girls. Elsewhere, a teenage girl is excitedly preparing for her very first day of junior high, eager to begin her new life of attending a basketball club and befriending the elegant new girl. But what exactly is the connection between these two worlds?

While not identical plot-wise these two share a similar mood/feel and the 'other worlds' aspect has a similar aesthetic style as well. Fans of Black Rock Shooter looking for something more coherent story-wise will surely appreciate Day Break, the other way around won't be as strong of a recommendation except based on a gut feeling.

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

If you like watching people transform and use spritual weapons to kill "undead" monsters, both of these are quite similar (at least for the first little while of Bleach). When killing Hollows is still a major part in Bleach it's exactly the same situation as the Daemonia in DBI. A person is turned into said monster and can never be returned to normal, both series' having the issues of having to kill people they love after being turned into their respective monster.

Cardcaptor Sakura

Cardcaptor Sakura

Sakura Kinomoto never imagined that by opening a book in her father's library, she'd be responsible for releasing wild magic into the world, yet that's exactly what she did. Too powerful to be let loose on the world, the magical Clow cards were sealed away long ago by their creator, Clow Reed. But all is not lost, for the guardian beast, Keroberos, was sealed along with the cards! Can Sakura, with the help of Keroberos, retrieve the cards before they wreak havoc on the town?

Both series revolve around Magical girls fighting monsters with the aide of Tarot cards. The major difference being that Cardcaptor Sakura has only one magical girl who uses multiple Tarot cards where as Day Break Illusion has multiple Magical Girls who are limited to the use of one Tarot card. DBI is much darker and contains more gore than CS but if you like one series, you'll probably enjoy the other.

D.Gray-man

D.Gray-man

An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.

Each character in both of these anime are given some special power, by a Tarot card in GBI and "innocence" in D.Gray-Man. They are then thrust into a special organization in which they use these powers to kill evil beings that were once human, sometimes even humans that the character has loved. The way these people become evil beings is also quite similar, in DBI it is the despair and sadness of wanting a wish granted at the cost of their souls, in D.Gray-Man it is someone elses despair and mourning wishing to bring back the dead that turns the ressurected person into an akuma.
