Btooom!

Btooom!

22-year-old Ryouta is an unemployed good-for-nothing who spends his days living at home and playing Btooom, a wildly popular online game that's sold over three million copies worldwide. Alongside other teammates, Ryouta battles it out with others using powerful bombs and sonar that can reveal hidden enemies, and his dedication has earned him the title of Japan's top player. But soon, Ryouta's pastime becomes a terrifying reality, as he and many others are dropped onto a tropical island and forced to play Btooom – but this time for real. Now, he and the rest must fight to the death by whatever means necessary, as the only way to win this deadly game is by killing seven of the other players.

  • Survival
  • High Stakes Games

Those are the main features, for me, to watch an awesome anime. I also like the mature themes in BTOOOM, they make it more "realistic", and seinen as well. Mirai Nikki is more shonen, but still you will like it.

dezzi dezzi says...

What itoshiki94 said already. Both are survival game animes, where people are pretty much forced to kill each other off. Btooom! looks a bit more serious than Mirai Nikki though, which I like. Really nice action also.

Thrawn Thrawn says...

Violence! Crazy people! Psychlogical breakdown! A high stakes game where only few can survive, both shows are about death games and the end goal of getting rid of the opposition. Randomized weapons and tools are given to them with the world (Island for Btoom!) as their stage.

mrd456 mrd456 says...

are both games hwere people have to fight to the death and the boy anf girl fall in love with each other during the game

Bloc97 Bloc97 says...

I would recommend both animes since they both have very close similarities. To begin, the goal in both is to kill everyone (in Mirai Nikki) and to kill 7 people to get their IC chips (in Btooom!).

The only difference is that when you win in Mirai Nikki you become god, while when you win in Btooom! you only get off the island (To get sent back later... [not a spoiler]).

Both have some sort of plot twist at the end, and will make you feel bad. They all have a touch of romance too.

I wouldn't recommend these two animes to younger kids, since they are both psychological and very violent.

best love story i have ever watched till now

it is amazing how everything happens so fast but it has its special impact and it is drawn amazingly and the openning is just ... 

ok just watch 

wonkuenoemos wonkuenoemos says...

The plot set as a game where the players forced to kill another player in order to survive. Psychologically intense.

RinKumidesu RinKumidesu says...

Both are games that require use of items with special abilities. In addition, in order to win, both require strategy. There are also blood involved.

kawaiihimesama kawaiihimesama says...

Like Mirai Nikki, Btooom! is a survival type anime where the protagonist is often put in uncomfortable and dangerous situations and he has to fight to survive. There's plenty of blood and violence as well as some really unhinged characters in both these anime.

jrl921 jrl921 says...

Well both are survival shows with a lot of ppl dying.  Btooom is set on a remote island where the MC is made to enter this survival game based on a online game he is the best at. Same themes a struggling to survive and even kill other contestants while in both the MC teams up with female counterpart to make it. Very intense and strategy goes a long way in btooom as they have to use different variations on bombs as the weapons to kill. 

HeadBanger90 HeadBanger90 says...

Both are action filled and exciting. Btoom does not have a yandere character in it though which is a must for me :D but still I enjoyed both of them alot!

monokumadr monokumadr says...

Both Mirai Nikki and Btooom! are about survivaling a death game. Also they both have some little romance in it, Yuki and Yuno and Sakamoto and Himiko.

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

animeandwwefanDXXD animeandwwefanDXXD says...

Both animes have a similar feel, and significant amount of blood and gore, although Elfen lied has way more (so far compared to mirai nikki) and is a lot more disturbing in nature/themes, but also both animes somehow manage to have this along with cuteness from the same main charachter that kills people - Yuno/Lucy and then they both develop a relationship with the main male charachter - yukki/Kota

so overall if you like gore/blood animes then you would like either, and even if you don't, you still might like them for the romance/cuteness!

 i was reccomenned both these animes from my friends, and despite not liking gore, i still liked elfen lied for the romance/cuteness, and mirai nikki as well, so far has a really interesting concept.

Ebhen Ebhen says...

Yep! They are both about scary but cute girls that have no hesitation to kill people they think are in their way or are threatening to themselves or the person they love. :) There is a lot of violence and blood but you get used to it when the story grabs you.Elfen Lied surpass Mirai Nikki though in that area but the other have more psychologic approach. But to be honest, the show have a good storyline so you don't mind the gore and violence after a while.The connection between the two lead characters are the glue to hold the show together.

Mirai Nikki have an anoying and stupid main character that can drive anyone crazy but Yuno makes up for it somehow with here Yandere-style that is way of the scale! :)

(Mirai Nikki isn't finished when I write this so I can't say anything about the ending yet)

Salvio Salvio says...

Like the twisted, morbid story? Like the voilence and the killing? Blood doesn't bother you? Crazy girls with pink hair that kill without batting an eyelash? Then this is the anime for you!

popmik popmik says...

as mentioned by others, there's a lot of blood and gore in both animes and in both you've got twisted main female characters

nobless1368 nobless1368 says...

If you like rivers of blood and serial killers than you will like this anime too! Total genocide and mysterious challenges don't let you go until the end.

Din0queen Din0queen says...

Mirai Nikki and Elfen Lied have a lot of things in common, Elfen Lied has more gore but Mirai Nikki has more psychological warfare, they're both great to watch and if you like one, you'll definitely like the other one, the headcharacters are also pretty similar, Lucy/Nyu and Yuno both have a cute side as well as a murderous side, and then we have Yukkii and Kouta, both boys who, over time, learn more and more about what's happening

LagannHorizon LagannHorizon says...

Gore galore, and a love story between two people who have a twisted past with one another. Both are superb anime and I could not recommend them any higher. Stop everything in your life and watch these!

Noiz19 Noiz19 says...

Well they both have a relationship based story, and they bth have horror and thriller. they are both enticing and intereting, i recommed both of them and if youve watched one, watch thet other.

xanixade xanixade says...

Has same plot bending, same horrifical kind of characters which live a dramatic love. If u loved Elfen Lied. Then this is what you should also love.

usagishiroi usagishiroi says...

Both have a deep story and heavy on the darkside. Mirai Nikki deals with a boy who is stuck in a avoidable situation, while Elfen Lied is about a girl who was was treated like a test subject and is "broken" mentaly. they both have to fight to live and both have to come to terms with whats around them. I would reccomend both of these anime more mature people due to the graphic nature of both. 

Guilty Crown

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.

Khguy Khguy says...

I believe that these two animes are very similar in that both main characters are shown to be very weak in the beginning. Eventually they become turn into more of a better charter that most people like gradually. 

They also have the girl with pink hair by their sides. :)

hannes33 hannes33 says...

both animes are similar, because in a way both main charakters need to struggle to stay alive. During their time, when they constantly need to fight they start developing and eventually become stronger charakters.

seine seine says...

Both are thrillers that have a somewhat wimpy guy and a pink-haired girl of questionable sanity. In Guilty Crown I am not referring to Inori. You'll see.

ferengi4 ferengi4 says...

These animes are both my FAVORITE animes, they are the the top 2 I recommened to people daily. Both have good stories, sound track, characters, and overall great animes. If you havent watched either of them you are reallly missing out

phoenixaurora phoenixaurora says...

Weak, spineless coward MC meets mysterious, dangerous pink-haired girl with pigtails and gets thrown into a fight for his life against people who are targeting them. Side characters include MC's high school school friends who he's not really close to due to his introvert nature. They bond over teamwork in dangerous situations. Betrayal and death of loved ones turns MC into a ruthless, coldhearted tyrant in the second half. Female yandere alert.   

Steins;Gate

But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...

TheFuture DiaryandSteins;Gateare both anime that will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next.

Both deal with the idea of how your actions in the present will effect your future, withFuture Diaryhaving an instant result.

Both have unexpected turns and shocking twist.

And both have endings that will leave you satisfied.

So if you like one, you'll surely like the other.

KenichiSora KenichiSora says...

These two animes both had an aspect of going being able to mess with thime via cell phone, and both series have the main charactor use it for personal gain until they realise the consequences for thier actions, both shows are very interesting and if ou like one, you probably will like the other, Mirai Nikki just has epic Yandere, take it or leave it

konradqwerty konradqwerty says...

Playing with time.

Changing future.

Running away from death and fate.

Love, death.

linanimex linanimex says...

In both anime there are characters who know the future and tries to experiment with changing it. They are also experiencing the outcomes of their action in changing the future. Also towards the end of both anime the story turns more and more tense and involving.

veqtor veqtor says...

Both have very similar themes and atmosphere, and are very good. I would recommend Steins;Gate over Mirai Nikki though

The Severing Crime Edge

CommanderKarasu CommanderKarasu says...

Crime Edge and Mirai Nikki both revolve around a deadly survival game with unusual weapons. In Crime Edge, participants use possessed items known as "Killing Goods". In Mirai Nikki, they use cell phones that can predict the future in ways unique to the user. Crime Edge comes off as a bit silly at times compared to Mirai Nikki, but if you enjoy unorthodox games, survival, and a little bit of gore, and you liked one, you should give the other a try. 

Lightness20 Lightness20 says...

Competition between a group of people sharing something in common, a power that makes them different from your average Joe. All of this in order to satisfy their own selfish desires. 

Bestanimeserie Bestanimeserie says...

Both shows are about a killing game, with items that have special powers. In mirai nikki it's the diary's and in Crime Edge it's the killing goods. Both have tons of action are a bit gory but beware Crime Edge is full of fethishes other than that if you liked on you'll like the other as well.

TheBear9696 TheBear9696 says...

It just has that sense that this select few people must kill each other to make there dream come true. Even though one uses sell phones and other media devices and the other uses weapons they both have varying ability of what they can do. It also shows just how crazy someone can be if it to protect the one that they love

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

A life or death game where participants try to kill each other and a male and female trying to protect each other. The female does more protecting in Mirai though and in the Severing Cime Edge everyone is after one girl mainly while in Mirai it's everyone against everyone. Both have a supernatural element to them.
