Synopsis:

Has someone done something to hurt you or the ones you love? Are you seeking revenge? Rumor has it that there’s a website that can service your needs. Titled “Hotline to Hell”, it contains a form that can be accessed only at midnight. Type in a name, and the Hell Girl will carry out your bidding – for a price. For though your appetite for revenge will be satisfied, your soul will also be condemned to hell after you die. But who is the Hell Girl, and does she care whether your revenge is justified? Apparently not, as long as she gets more souls…

Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro

The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed "suicide"?

Both of these shows feature people who may seem normal on the surface, but act outside the realm of normal human behavior to perform groteque acts.  Both shows are episodic, telling a new story every episode as they explore the depths of human insanity.  Each show uses tools from the underworld to help bring the evil doers to justice.  Hell Girl is more focused on revenge, while MTNN is more about Neuro's obsession with solving mysteries, but in terms of how they explore the outer reaches of human nature and people's motives for their evil deeds, if you liked one, I definitely think you'll like the other.

Both Hell Girl and Now and Then, Here and There provide a rather heavy story that portrays several bad traits about this world and those living in it - be it greed or obsession with power, these things cannot remain unforgiven.

Jigoku Shoujo and Pale Cocoon have one thing that really sets them apart from other anime: the pace. Both have a slower pace, but tell a story that is different, talks about human esthetics and has a dark feeling.

Red Garden

Red Garden

Four students of the same age have nothing in common except that they attend the same elite New York City school. Kate, Rose, Clare and Rachel all belong to different cliques and hardly notice each other's existence. Then one day they gain something in common, something very important, something mysterious. They find themselves drawn together by the death of a fellow student and the secret of their own missing memories. Suddenly they are thrown into a world of hidden warfare on the city streets and are caught up in secrets which would not be believed by others. These four all have their own problems to struggle with, things that seem more important than such strange conflicts. Can they escape from this fate? The only thing they know is that despite coming from four different worlds they now have to rely on each other or die without a hope.

Both are cerebral horror set in contemporary times, and deal with common tropes associated with teenage drama.

Un-Go

Un-Go

In post-war Japan, the nation remains unsettled and crime is as big a problem as ever. Despite his sharp mind and keen deductions, "Defeated Detective" Shinjurou Yuuki frequently loses out to his rival, Rinroku Kaishou, whose information network has previously aided many police investigations. However, in spite of his poor reputation, Shinjurou continues to work on every case he's recruited to with his mysterious assistant Inga. With Inga's power to transform into a being capable of forcing any person to truthfully answer one question put to them, the pair uses everything at their disposal to get to the bottom of each crime and reveal the true culprit – even if the reality of who solved the case never reaches the public...

The mystery solving cases made me think the two are a like. The para-normal in this serie is personified by the Inga character as it is Hellgirl in the other one. This plus the rest of the distant background made me think those two anime are very similar in tone and in vibe.
