26 years ago, something terrible happened in a middle school’s third year classroom. A popular, talented student named Misaki suddenly died, and the ramifications of that incident have caused each third year class since then to live in fear. It is now 1998, and Kouchi Sakakibara has just transferred into the notorious classroom, curious about the mysterious secret that his peers are hiding from him. He’s drawn to one enigmatic girl named Mei Misaki, a quiet student who wears an eye patch and warns him about getting involved with her, and continues to seek her out against the pleas of his classmates. And that’s when people begin to violently die...

Another and Mirai Nikki are similar in many ways. They both havesimilar animation, are horror, and have a similar feel to them.

Another and Mirai Nikki TV both have creepy mystery and horror elements, lots of bloodshed, great soundtracks, and great plots.

AruValentine AruValentine says...

These two have an alike horror/bloody-gore aspect, very high up on levels of emotion with each character, and both can give you chills down your spine. I honestly fell in love with both animes from the first episode, they pull you in and make things very interesting right from the start. Both main characters are alike in reactions and even their attitude on things, yet reamin their own personalities all the same. Both are psychologically intense and bring out a huge level of emotion in times of dispare and death. In short, if you like one I HIGHLY recommend the other.

"Another" and "future diary" go hand in hand when it comes to detailed psychological thrillers...both shows will have you on your toes trying to solve the mysteries around them,. Lots of blood and death in both..."plus there is someone with an eyepatch in both, and that just makes it much more cool" A big difference in the two is that "future diary is a game in which the last one standing is a winner and all the deaths come from murders as opposed to "another"where people die due to strange events from a curse on a school......but when you finish either show, its great to start right on the next one...

Fate/stay night

Fate/stay night

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?

Both of these shows share similar plot elements. Both of them revolve around contests of survival, and the methods the characters use to survive (Servants in Fate/Stay Night and Future Diaries in Mirai Nikki) vary upon each contestant's personality and ambitions. At the end of these games the winner receives a great reward. The main protagonists of both these series are also similar in the fact that at first they are afraid to part take in the dangerous games, but as the shows progress the main characters become more adjusted to the rules of each game. Another similarity between them is that the main heroines of both shows are love interests to the main character and motivate their actions throughout the series. The reason why if you liked one of these you'd like the other is that they both take different approaches to the high stakes game genre. Fate/Stay Night takes a more lighthearted approach focusing on themes like loyalty and having a romance that is that is two-sided. Mirai Nikki on the other hand takes a darker approach to the high stakes game genre focusing on themes such as solitude (most of the main characters are loners) and having a one-sided romance between the main characters. The reason why if you liked one you'd like the other is that they have similar plots and are a part of the same genre, but the tone of these shows greatly differ and as such they offer different takes on the elements they have in common like romance, and survival.

Idiotchan Idiotchan says...

They both have really useless main characters and they are both about survival games and so...

I guess I agree with NinTeddie64.

Lolq Lolq says...

It's pretty much the same story background. There are some people, they are special, chosen and they fight in some kind of tournament for a big prize. I didn't like the Fate/stay night but Mirai Nikki is pretty enjoyable.

Penguindrum

Penguindrum

Kamba and Shouma Takakura have taken care of their sickly younger sister Himari since their parents disappeared years ago - that is, until the day she died. But as the boys grieve by her hospital bed, Himari sits up, adorned with a strange penguin hat. Suddenly, the three of them are transported to a vibrant world where the hat, using Himari's body as a puppet, charges these brothers with a task: find the Penguin Drum and their sister's life will be saved! Now aided by some odd penguins they received in the mail, the duo must find this mysterious item or risk losing the sister they care for so much. However, they aren't the only ones with their sights on the Penguin Drum, for new enemies await them around every turn, all connected in ways they would have never imagined...

  • うんめい- Fate/Destiny
  • みらい- Future 

What extent would someone go to in order to change their future? Is the future possible to change or is it a matter of fate? If someone believes in destiny then to change it would be to play god. Mirai Nikki and Mawaru Penguin Drum explore these matters in their own way and both become a rollercoaster full of unforseeable twists and turns. Both are highly recommended.

All I could think while watching this was how much Rigo was like Yuno. This show has just as many crazy twists and turns as Future Diary as well. You wil love both shows I promise!

Togainu No chi: Survive by fighting other people,so at the end you can fight Il Re and be the King of the city (I dont remember its name)

Mirai Nikki: Survive by fighting other diaries users so you could be the next "god"

A mix of blood, some little comedy scenes and fanservice (some ecchi in Mirai Nikki and yaoi in Togainu) makes both series worthy to be seen.Indeed, if you are a gore fan you would like each othern. ^^ 

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

Togainu no Chi and Mirai Nikki are both about a male who is forced to play a life or death game. Other than the fact that they both are high stakes games, they are rather different. There is a lot more blood and gore and insanity in Mirai Nikki and it's also less realistic. The main characters are a middle school guy and a middle school girl. Togainu no Chi has a darker atmosphere and is about two young men who end up in a lawless city in a life and death game. Still, both have a decent amount of fighting and are about two people in a high stakes game to the death.

GANTZ

GANTZ

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

itoshiki94 itoshiki94 says...

Both of them are kind of Survival, Gore (more explicit on Gantz) and the psichological stuff. Each chapter of Gantz its unforgetable, and you must see it so you can understand the story and connect it. THe same way with Mirai Nikki,each chapter is somehow related with each other and in much of them exist a suspense and you want to find out who is behind the big thing!Really, I recommend you both of them, if you are a fan of gore animes ^^

this anim has a theme like mirai nikki i did not watched it full but i think it can be like that
