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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

When the infected approached Rei and Takashi's school, it led to a gruesome blood bath that left the majority of students and staff dead or turned into the zombie-like monsters that have spread throughout the world. Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...
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
One night, Madoka has a terrible nightmare – against the backdrop of a desolate landscape, she watches a magical girl battle a terrifying creature, and lose. The next day, the teen's dream becomes reality when the girl – Homura – arrives at Mitakihara Middle School as a transfer student, mysteriously warning Madoka to stay just the way she is. 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!
