Synopsis:

In Japan, there is a disturbing rumor being spread that people's shadows are ripping from their bodies, never to be seen again. For one young man, the frightening nature of this rumor is just beginning to manifest in the form of a nightmarish world that he can't seem to escape from. In this place full of dark minions and demons, he and his friends fight futilely against unknown enemies, only to be brought back to the "real world" as quickly as they left it. Is this real, or a dream? Only one person holds the key to destroying and saving the world as he knows it...

Digital Devil Story Megami Tensei

Digital Devil Story Megami Tensei
  • OVA (1 ep x 45 min)
  • 1987

At Juusei Academy, students are given the best education that money can buy… but there's a catch. Unknown to his classmates, the computer genius Akemi Nakajima has misguided plans to revive the demon Loki; and unfortunately for his classmates, teacher and new transfer student Yumiko Shirasagi, this requires plenty of sacrifices -- a job that falls to them. What Nakajima doesn’t know is that reviving Loki is the pretense for many demons to come, and that the fate of the world may lie in his and Yumiko's hands… if they survive long enough to defeat the ultimate evil!

Interlude is definitely newer and snazzier, but both Interlude and Megami Tensei OVA have very interesting plot similarities, as well as the horror aspect that is prevalent in both. I definitely had the same sort of "wow, this is messed up" feeling when watching both of these, which is why I chose to make this recommendation. Admittedly, I liked Interlude a whole lot more than Megami Tensei, but if you liked one, you might enjoy the other regardless.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

If you liked the complexity of Interlude's plot, the confusing yet understandable (yeah I know it's a contradition but that's how I feel) story, the dark atmosphere, the theme of different realities and the philosophical issues examined in Interlude then I think you will also like Ergo Proxy. It has an equally confusing yet clever story, a dark and chilling feel, and is  deeply philosophical. Also, a high production value.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

Largely different shows, Interlude and Guilty Crown both share a peculiar sci-fi element of a mysterious "possibly evil, possibly good" enemy, and a girl whose body lays in eternal slumber to stop the world from collapsing.

Although both Tsukihime and Interlude are tales of demons or vampires, they look to explore relationships between that which we would perceive as evil and humans within complex storylines, giving them a little more depth than your typical horror.

Paranoia Agent

Paranoia Agent

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. 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?

Both anime are reality warping mind-trips. They feel alike, but tell two different stories. But somehow, they share similarities. Try them out.
