In Norse mythology, the end of the world was foretold as the final war between the gods, and its name was Ragnarok. In a twist on the lore, the god Loki finds himself exiled to the world of humans. Mayura, a girl obsessed with mysteries, ends up entangled in Loki's struggle to return to the world of the gods without realizing it, and meanwhile, the gods divide into factions. Some are willing to help Loki find his way home, while others are after his life -- the end of the world, the final war: Ragnarok. And in the center of it all is Mayura...
For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!
D.N.Angel and Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok both succeed in wasting an incredible amount of potential that they had in store and only remain as average throughout their entire run. Both series are lighthearted but have some "dark" undertones that feel decidedly out of place. Both series are also greatly episodic in nature, choosing to saturate the last few episodes with a laughable attempt of a "plot" in order to redeem itself. So fans of one series will feel right at home with the other.
Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
The art style and main characters of these two animes have so much in common that if you like one, you'll like the other. They both have talking animal sidekicks as well. The flow of both shows is similar, not quite slice of life, but with enough discontinuous episodes that it feels like it at times. The fight scenes also have a lot in common.
While Jing and Loki have very different plots they are very similiar in approach and basic mood. The characters, while not deep, are enjoyable. The fights are usually quick and to the point while still fun to watch and there's a sense of humor that runs through both of them. The fact they have a similiarity of style is probably largely due to having the same director, so if you liked how one was done then you'll like how the other is done.
The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed "suicide"?
If you like detective shows with a twist, you'd enjoy both Neuro and Loki Ragnarok. LR definitely is the more attractive of the two, involving mythological elements compared to Neuro's demonic undertones. I didn't care much for either of these, but know that fans of one would probably enjoy the other too.
I agree with sothis. If you like one you will most likely like the other. They both have mysteries that are solved with a supernatural twist. I loved both.
Ayaka Kisaragi is the best at her profession -- hunting down vampires, spooks, and evil spirits who haunt the citizens of Tokyo! Ghostbusters, beware! The crew of the Phantom Quest Corporation is on the job. From vampires to the undead, there's nothing her hip and paranormal team can't handle... EXCEPT their debt, of course!
Thirty years ago, Tokyo was destroyed in a massive earthquake known as The Great Fall. Today, the remains of the dead wasteland stand as the city of Kyuto, which is inhabited by few. In this city lives the head of the Hyuuga family, twelve-year-old Mayuki, who is able to understand the world around him with the help of extrasensory abilities. Along with Minori and the twins Kouta and Rakuta, Mayuki will solve the strange events taking place in the city; but who are the nefarious forces that are running the show?
Both shows feature a boy detective who has mysterious powers as the protagonist. If you liked Loki, you will probably like Suteki Tantei Labyrinth, and vice versa.
This two series are focuses almost the same way. A cute boy with fantastic ways of reasoning (maybe somehow superpowers) and myteries that are not so reality related with.
Both are episodic type, but have a common plot behind.
Full of comedy, suspense and touching moments, if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other as well!
