Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.
In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.
I believe that these two animes are very similar in that both main characters are shown to be very weak in the beginning. Eventually they become turn into more of a better charter that most people like gradually.
They also have the girl with pink hair by their sides. :)
if you liked mira nikki you probably wont find anything better but guilty crown is definitly somthing you will enjoy. they are simeler in the sense that the main charechter is somone forced into a world of death and sadness
both animes are similar, because in a way both main charakters need to struggle to stay alive. During their time, when they constantly need to fight they start developing and eventually become stronger charakters.
Both are thrillers that have a somewhat wimpy guy and a pink-haired girl of questionable sanity. In Guilty Crown I am not referring to Inori. You'll see.
They both sort of have a similar feel of a boy struggling to stay alive with the aid of a mysterious pink haired girl. Long story short, if you liked one you'll probably like the other.
22-year-old Ryouta is an unemployed good-for-nothing who spends his days living at home and playing Btooom, a wildly popular online game that's sold over three million copies worldwide. Alongside other teammates, Ryouta battles it out with others using powerful bombs and sonar that can reveal hidden enemies, and his dedication has earned him the title of Japan's top player. But soon, Ryouta's pastime becomes a terrifying reality, as he and many others are dropped onto a tropical island and forced to play Btooom – but this time for real. Now, he and the rest must fight to the death by whatever means necessary, as the only way to win this deadly game is by killing seven of the other players.
Those are the main features, for me, to watch an awesome anime. I also like the mature themes in BTOOOM, they make it more "realistic", and seinen as well. Mirai Nikki is more shonen, but still you will like it.
What itoshiki94 said already. Both are survival game animes, where people are pretty much forced to kill each other off. Btooom! looks a bit more serious than Mirai Nikki though, which I like. Really nice action also.
Violence! Crazy people! Psychlogical breakdown! A high stakes game where only few can survive, both shows are about death games and the end goal of getting rid of the opposition. Randomized weapons and tools are given to them with the world (Island for Btoom!) as their stage.
are both games hwere people have to fight to the death and the boy anf girl fall in love with each other during the game
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.
i agree because both manga has like a sick demented theme both of them has a major tragedy i would say that these are two shows you should watch or read
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.
Takumi is a reclusive otaku who wants nothing more than to be left alone to play online games and watch anime. He only attends the minimum necessary to pass his classes, and rarely leaves his cramped room except to purchase the newest figurines. One evening, while Takumi is chatting online with his friend "Grim," a stranger called "Shogun" joins the channel and, after "Grim" leaves, posts a series of disturbing photographs depicting a man impaled to a wall with metal stakes. The following day, Takumi is horrified when he wanders into an alley and once again sees Shogun’s images – but this time, the gruesome scene is reality. From then on, Takumi sees the world through a new set of eyes; imaginary delusions meld with reality, and he isn't sure who he can trust. With suspicions and confusion at every turn, Takumi must struggle to determine what's going on - but most importantly, whose eyes are those eyes?
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.
Both series feature a MC that’s suddenly thrown into a surreal survival game with his new found power that comes from his cell phone. In both cases their cell phones are able to predict their future, but in DSTA their cells come with a power to summon monsters to fight for their wellbeing. With a big focus on action and drama around survival, you might like one of those if you enjoyed the other.
