The Severing Crime Edge

The Severing Crime Edge

Kiri has been obsessed with cutting others' hair since he was a child, to the extent that he always carries a pair of shears with him wherever he goes. So when the boy accidentally meets Iwai, a young girl with floor-length hair, he's crushed to learn that due to a curse, her locks cannot be shorn by ordinary means. And what's more, she's an unwilling participant in a deadly game where psychotic wielders of powerful "Killing Goods" do their best to take her life in exchange for a prize beyond imagination. Wielding the shears he learns are his own Killing Good, Kiri must now keep Iwai safe from those who wish to murder her and help her survive this sinister game.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

rashura rashura says...

Both are dark animes where several players fight a game to either become a god or have their wish fullfilled. Although fate/zero is more supernatural, it has the same feel to it. If you like the temporary alliances/betrayal/bets and psychological warfare in either of the series, you'll like the other.

MaraRuizu MaraRuizu says...

Fate/Zero and Mirai Nikki share the premise of a survival game where the winner gains an incredibly large price. Both series explore the possibilities of temporary alliances with people you might end up having to kill.

While Fate/Zero rely more heavily on supernatural elements, Mirai Nikki also includes a mixture of supernatural and natural fighting styles.

All in all the two are similarly dark and share many plot elements. As such, if you liked one of them, you should give the other one a chance.

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

In both series, the protagonists are playing a game in which they would have to win in order to live.

hannes33 hannes33 says...

Since the main topic of both animes is the topic of a survival game. So if you are a fond of those there is a great possibility that you like the other anime too.

However mirai nikki focuses more on horror and psychological elements the SAO does.
