When an odd string of suicides begins to occur at a local high rise building, most of the townsfolk treat it as an unfortunate series of events. One girl, however, senses something more sinister at work - especially when a close friend of hers falls mysteriously ill. After witnessing one of the deaths for herself, Shiki begins to realize that a strange connection exists between each of the girls, and predicts a total of eight will die. With seven dead and the accuracy of her prediction unclear, she sets out to put an end to the killings. Yet, as she nears the truth, she finds herself closer and closer to the brink of death; will Shiki become the town's savior, or the next victim?
In the present day, terrorism is on the rise and the Ua Virus – a biological agent with a 100% kill rate – has been unleashed into the populace. In Shanghai, Canaan is a near-unstoppable soldier who roams the streets, always in the path of a bullet. She is a Synesthetist – a person able to use all five senses at once – who harbors a burning desire for revenge and has a past shrouded in mystery. While the Ua Virus infects more people in the city, others cross paths with Canaan including Minoru, a freelance journalist; Maria, Canaan’s close friend who was infected with the Ua Virus and lost her memory of the incident; and The Snakes, a shady and violent group with mysterious motives. Danger lies at every turn for Canaan and ultimately the rest of mankind…
If you liked the visual feast in Canaan or the KnK movies, you're gonna find the other quite a treat. Both works feature strong, isolated female leads, more at home inflicting violence than having a normal conversation with a friend.
Lastly, both anime possess an engaging and memorable ensamble cast who bring a human element to the unbelievable events of the story.
Ryougi Shiki and Canaan are almost exactly the same, except one uses a gun and the other uses a knife. Because of this, both series feature a sort of "search for oneself" conflict that the lead characters have with themselves.
Both anime have main female leads who posses interesting killing techniques, are totally badass, and aren't afraid to shead some blood. Cold and blunt these women seem like they are ice queens but come to care for those who are closest to them eventually. Both anime are action packed with an amazing story to go along with it. Check out one if you liked the other.
With each of these shows coming from Type-Moon, there is little surprise that a person would enjoy the other if they liked one. The art work is the same, several of the story elements and character are very similar, and they are both fairly violent.
Both animes have a strong female lead and they both posseses various killing techniques. Both are cold hearted to start with but will start to care about the one's close to them. The character development in Canaan and Kara no kyoukai is very good and so is the artwork. I strongly advice you to watch the other if u liked one.

both animes deal with murder and mystery aspects that deep implanted, both animes have a very well defined horror aspect (more intense in Kara no Kyoukai).If you like one of this two, try the other one as well.
Both share many similarities. They focus on the dark, twisted, grizzly, gory, mysterious nature of the human mind pushed to it's limits. Highly recommended.
There's certainly a similarity between both series, despite the big differences in storyline and plot. The atmosphere in both are almost identical, as is the style of storytelling. And at the center of each is a female lead that is shrouded in mystery when you first meet her. So if you liked the "mood" that you felt when watching one, you'll definitely enjoy the other.
Both 'Kara no Kyoukai' series & 'Denpa Teki na Kanojo' gives similar dark, interesting feel with a pinch of romance in it... both are female leads though their characters vary (like 'Shiki' being more murderous, tsundere, 'Ame' is little bit more relevied of murderous instinct & more devoted to 'juu') both of them are quite similar when it comes to protecting their loved ones... if you like one please try other, you are sure to like it...

If your after a strong female lead, then these two anime both offer that. While they have largely different basis for their storyline, the same style of storytelling mixed with action means that it's actually comfortable to sit and watch one if you've seen the other. Throw in two amazing soundtracks and your pretty much sorted. Go watch!
Both animes focus heavily upon their lead character whom in both cases is a powerful and headstrong woman. They even share very similar character designs for their respetive leads!
These series have a very similar feel, a fairly bloody story, and very similar lead females. On top of that they attempt to impart some philosophy into the stories.
Both animes have a strong female lead, both the female leads are killing machines in there own way. Overall the animes are both realy good and u should check out the other if u liked one
Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.
In a row: bloody/dark atmosphere, leading female with unique personality that changes through the story, supernatural, plot-order, romance background and so much more alike. You just can't help but loving and hating these girls.
Are you into that? Then check this anime.
Both start out with dark atmosphere, with an episode which is out of the chronological order of the other episodes. The main character of both series are women, who have a disturbed backstory, and their character personalities change dramatically during the story, whilst on their journey of dealing with the supernatural. On top of this, both series rely on suspense, and often treat the viewer to awesome action scenes.
Each of these titles are told in a non-chronological order, center around extremely strong women, and deal with supernatural phenomenon very violently. If you enjoyed one of these series you'll likely enjoy the other.
Unbeknownst to humans, demons from an overlapping dimension walk amongst them in the streets of Tokyo. The balance between the worlds is kept by the crow guardian Karas and Yurine, its master and voice of the living city. However, the time of harmony nears the end as the once-Karas Lord Eko returns. Seeking to purge humanity for its evils, he terrorizes the city with his minions that feast on human blood. The ultimate battle between good and evil awaits; can Yurine and her newly initiated Karas prevail against Lord Eko and protect their city against his monstrous horde?
Both animes both share a very 'epic' broad arching plot which may require concentration and thought to fully comprehend. They also both utilise superb and dark animation syles with seamless, yet selective, use of CGI.
Both are ova's with some intense graphical scenes, the story in both are episodic, yet related... and if you enjoyed watching one of these series because of the crazy graphical content and the intense action and some parts with a bit of mystery... then you should enjoy the other as well
Both are darck supernatural film series that take place in an urben setting. They both are very complex and can be very confussing. While is i perfer the garden of sinners karas isint completley awful eather. if you like karas youll love the far suppiorer in the garden of sinners
