Japan's hottest service is Nicaea, a website that sends your friends a picture of your death before it happens. Daichi and Hibiki are two teens who didn't expect Nicaea to actually be real – that is, until the boys receive an email about their demise, and die shortly after. On the brink of going to the beyond they're given a choice: expire, or have a second chance at life. And so the two awaken to discover the city's been destroyed and they now have the ability to summon demons – an ability that a secretive branch of the government insists they use to help combat an imminent threat. For unless summoners like the teens put a stop to otherworldly invaders destroying the planet, the world will soon disappear...
The protagonists of Mirai Nikki and Devil Survivor 2 are seemingly ordinary everyday teenagers, but they're suddenly thrown into a game of survival (literally a game in Mirai Nikki's case) where they must fight with the help of unusual cell phones. Both phones are able to predict the future, but the phones in Devil Survivor 2 are even more special because they can also summon supernatural beings to battle. Action and drama are a big focus in these two series, as no one is entirely sure who is friend and who is foe, or how they're going to get of the mess they're in.
If you're interested in supernatural survival stories and enjoyed one of these shows, you're sure to want to check out the other.

If you like one of these animes, you will probably like the other as both series handle their fighting scenes in a very epic way. Art is very detailed and can make certain characters look creepy at times. There is also a good amount of drama that happens between characters and even some romance.
Both of these animes actually explore the relationships that would occur during a crisis such as Z-day or a Hunger Games-style death match and they focus on the desperation people would feel. They're also both brutal and don't hold back on the violence

But when she and her best friend Miki are pulled into a twisted illusion world and meet a magical creature named Kyubey, the pair discovers that magical girls are real, and what's more, they can choose to become one. All they must do is sign a contract with Kyubey and agree to fight witches that spread despair to the human world, and in return they will be granted a single wish. However, as Homura's omen suggests, there's far more to becoming a magical girl than Madoka and Miki realize...
Both of these series are deeply immersed in complex story elements and both are quite well versed in the amount of symbolism that is conveyed.
Both of these anime are very dark themed. They rely on characters that have bben through horrific events that make them who they are. Modoka magica doesn't quite have as much gore as Mirai Nikki, but it's dark fantasy theme brings tragedy and horror down upon the characters!
In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.
The Main Characters in both series are exactly the same. The Only Difference is that in Mirai Nikki TV the Main Character is stuck in a Battle royal with psychologically insane people and in Neon Genesis Evangelion the Main Character is Forced to fight Beings of Immense Power surrounded by Psychologically insane people. Both are the same except for the setting.

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...
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.
