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?
Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?
Both anime's seem to have a strange sort of company who does work with the mysterious, and through this, there is a lot of battles... In both anime's there are spirits that must be fought, and magickal/spiritual powers that are involved in the battles...
There are also characters who assist in the battles, but have no actual powers themselves... There is a lot of blood shed in both animes along with mature themes as well...
They are both ova's but the story's go in completely different ways so if thats okay with you, and you enjoyed one, you should enjoy the other
both of this anime are short in episode/movie number but both of them have many things in common and one that is the most visible is the extreme horror aspect from both of this two anime.Even though this two have some differences in terms of genres when we talk about intense, extreme, bloody horror animes this two are very much alike and if you seen one of this two for sure you will like the other one also
Mnemosyne and Sinners revolve around a little company devoted to solving crimes. Rin and Shiki set out to solve each crime enshrouded in mystery by any means possible. The catch is each woman is equipped with a unbeatable power. The result usually ends up being a bloodbath gore fest and only leads to a much bigger and insane mystery. If gore and mystery and killing is your thing, then enjoy.
The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
Since both of these titles are from Type-Moon, there is little surprise that a person would enjoy the other if they liked one. With similar art, sound, similar character, similar story elements, and even a similar level of violence, these series go well together.
Set in a parallel universe to Kara no Kyoukai, FSN has many similar elements; indeed, Tomoe Enjou of Movie 5: Paradox Spiral is something of the precursor to FSN's hero Shirou Emiya. The magical system, general vibe, and level of dark and violence is similar throughout all the material from TYPE-MOON, and while visual and plot parallels between KnK and TYPE-MOON's Tsukihime are more apparent, there are fun little references in KnK to things such as the "Counter Force" that are tied to the character of Archer in FSN. While FSN is perhaps not quite as well-executed as KnK is, the basis on which both sit is solidly felt in either show and will be all the more apparent once the producers of KnK get finished with the FSN prequel Fate/Zero.
With a past shrouded in mystery and a blank memory, Shiki Tohno seems to be just another "average high school student". That is, until he nearly kills a female vampire with his secret deadly ability to "see the lines". His journey to unlock the secrets of the Tohno family and unbury his own lost memories has only just begun, and now he must also help the woman, Arcueid Brunestud, find a lethal phantom named Roa, and kill it using his ability.
Shingetsutan Tsukihime and Kara no Kyoukai are works by the same author, with both set in the parallel worlds of the same universe. Indeed, though Tsukihime suffered a bit from pacing and story issues, they are undeniably two birds of the same feather - Kara no Kyoukai just happens to pick up the conceptual slack that Tsukihime left behind. With so many obvious similarities between the two, it's hard to go wrong either way; just keep in mind that Kara no Kyoukai is by far the superior of the duo and you'll be good to go.
They are both about a person that can se destructive lines, wich helps them killing anything.
When popular pop idol Mima decided to retire from her group, Cham, and become an actress, she had no idea that one person's obsession would soon spiral out of control. With death threats, letter bombs and a forged website which details her every move, Mima finds herself slowly becoming trapped in a nightmare she can't seem to escape. With murders piling up and her mental state slowly degrading, can she discover who the culprit is, before she becomes the next victim?
Both anime (particularly the 2nd of Kara no Kyoukai) share very similar and relevant themes relating to their main heroines. They also both display their respective narratives in chronologically convoluted ways which make them both very interesting to watch.
Both of these anime's have a lot of very dark and mature themes involved in them... they both are endeavor to watch for those who have a weak stomach for realistic tragedies such as rape and murder. However they also bring together a sense of overcoming those tragedies to move forward...
Perfect Blue is a movie with one plot and Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners is an OVA with several story arcs involved in it, yet the similarities of the two tragic and mysterious Anime's are great, therefore, I would strongly recommend that if you liked one of these, you will like the other..
In a land where the souls of humans fossilize to become books, a group known as the Armed Librarians strive to maintain and protect the tomes stored within the Bantorra Library. Meanwhile the Shindeki church is transforming people into living weapons. These human bombs are known simply as ‘Meat’, and they have been programmed to carry out a single action: to kill Hamyuts Meseta, the Armed Librarians’ director. Now, alongside the threat of Dragon Pneumonia, the Librarians use their powerful and unique psychic abilities to stop the Shindeki Church at all costs. But when one of their colleagues betrays them and steals one of the seven war machines of the past, the Librarians must work even harder to prevent their enemies’ nefarious plans from coming to fruition.
Armed Librarians and Kara no Kyoukai are action series with pretty large casts (many of whom have superpowers) and convoluted plotlines. Though their storytelling is a bit flawed at times, there are tons of really neat ideas in each series, which combined with the rapid pacing makes each rather entertaining. And since Kara no Kyoukai is a series of movies and Armed Librarians is arch-based, they have a pretty similar flow, as well.
Each of these titles have a large cast of magic users and a seemingly disconnected story that can be hard to follow.
