Encased by trees that are used to make grave markers, Sotoba is a village thought to be surrounded by death - a fact that soon literally becomes the case. One summer, a series of mysterious and untimely fatalities begins to plague the small rural town. With a higher than normal mortality rate for the time of year and each cause of passing remaining unknown, Toshio, the local doctor, and Seishin the temple’s vice chief monk become suspicious and take it upon themselves to investigate. However, as the deaths begin to pile up, more people begin to wonder just what is behind this sudden epidemic; could it have anything to do with the bizarre Kirishiki family that recently moved to the village?
Both Shiki and The Future Dairy are surrounded in death and killing. The Future Dairy as a twisted survival game, while Shiki is just for survival. Both have their moments of pure horror that will have you that will have you glancing over your shoulder for anything that might be lurking in the shadows of your closet. If you like either one, you're most likely going to enjoy the other.
When Haruka, Yuu and their friends decided to go ghost hunting, they had no idea the "ghosts" they'd find would turn their lives upside down. Black-clad and wielding quantum powers, these knights from the future are after an artifact of immense power that they hope will save their dimension from destruction: the Dragon Torque; and Haruka seems to be the key. As factions within the knights violently disagree on how to proceed, Haruka and the gang are caught up in a fight with the Shangri La, in an existential battle where fates of entire universes are decided.
Both of these anime feature heavy reliance on understanding of causailty and time travel - albeit more relied upon in Noein.
Mirai Nikki includes the linear theory in which when you go back in time you and your past exist in the same spacetime, being able to create a "new future" in which you can both cause and interact with, as well as interact with your past self - something that would clearly cause a paradox, but that's neither here nor there...
Noein uses the theory where there are multiple parallel universes existing at the same time in the same space but out of phase, so as to remain separate. One can visit the paralell world - be it in the future or the past - and can only interact with the surroundings or oneself if in phase with the parallel universe.
If you can understand one you will understand the other.
Hakaze, princess of the Kusaribe mage clan, has been betrayed and marooned on an island by her own people. They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic. The deal is made, and the battle that will determine civilization's fate is begun: but who will play the part of its villain, and who its savior?
Mirai Nikki and Blast of Tempest both start out in the modern world. Slowly, they both incorporate surreal elements.
By the end of the first episodes, we are fully engulfed in these supernatural worlds. However, the rules of the anime manage to ground these other worldly elements.
Both forge amazing character connections, and are more cerebral, despite the fair amount of action each contains. If you like one, you will likely enjoy the other, although Mirai Nikki is certainly the darker of the two.
Finally, both feature enough twists and turns to keep you entertained until the satisfying conclusions (make sure to check out the OVA for Mirai Nikki!).
Ten years have passed since the demise of the bubble economy, a time that polarized the world into two groups of people: the rich and the poor. In the present day, Saiga Tatsumi (a former war photographer) has been hired to investigate a secret club for the rich named the Roppongi Club, but he soon discovers secrets much darker than he’d ever imagined. With the help of a exploited goddess named Kagura, Saiga now possesses the power to kill by simply taking a photograph; but can he stay alive long enough to save her from her captors?
At first I didn't notice how similar these two anime were, but as soon as I started breaking each down, I started catching a lot of similarities. Both Speed Grapher and Future Diary set you up with the main male lead and very early on introduce you to the main female love interest. The main couple in each respective anime go through hardships and slowly begin to show signs of love as each series progresses (FD being more romance based than SG). They also both have a lot of action wether it's hand to hand or using their abilities/diaries, both tend to keep you on your toes. They have a very lucrative story and the voice acting is superb in my opinion. If you liked one I'm sure you'll love the other.
Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!
Chibi Vampire Karin and Future Diary both feature a girl with a secret and the construction of a cute yet confusing relationship. Slice of life with a little spice just the way I like em. The mood in Future Diary is much more serious more of the time than in Chibi Vampire Karin but they both at different points show how vicious each story can become. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.
