Synopsis:

It is said that humans fear what is different, and that such fears drive much of human behavior. Naoto and Nayao learned the brutal truth of this statement when they see the looks on their parents’ faces, the day they were sent to an isolated laboratory to live out their youth. Their crime? Possessing inherent psychic abilities. Yet now, the brothers have escaped and are at last free to experience the world, but they soon discover that their prison was also their protection from the outside world. The question is, are their powers more dangerous to themselves, or those around them?

Both of these anime are about dealing with one's weaknesses. What is more, they share similar atmosphere and supernatural forces involved in plot.

Mermaid Forest TV

Mermaid Forest TV

Legend says that if the flesh of a mermaid is consumed, the body becomes immortal. However, with the small chance of immortality comes a high chance of being poisoned, morphing and mutating into a monster beyond comprehension. Yuta is a wanderer: one of the few who has eaten the flesh and survived, and lived to tell about it -- for 500 years. By chance, Yuta meets a young woman named Mana who also shares the same fate, and together, they wander the land, searching for a mermaid who can free them from their immortal lives.

These are both mystery series with two people traveling together searching for the answers to why they are who they are. Both have a dark atmosphere and the two main characters of both have a caring relationship and protect each other when they are in danger.

Mokke

Night Head Genesis and Mokke are series that deal with children who possess inherently supernatural abilities.  Both also tend to delve into their characters's pasts to note the trials that these powers bring.  The difference between the two, however, is that Mokke structures itself as a coming-of-age story, while Night Head Genesis is a supernatural mystery/psychological thriller.

Shadow Star Narutaru

Shadow Star Narutaru

While visiting her grandparents on a remote island, Shiina Tamai, our young protagonist, inadvertently finds a strange star shaped creature, which she names Hoshimaru. This creature, while seemingly harmless and unusual, holds many secrets. As Shiina and her new friend Akira soon find out, their creatures are much more than they seem to be...and against their will, they are thrown into a dangerous and hostile situation of trying to save the world from others who would use their dragonets to enslave it.

Both Night Head Genesis and Shadow Star Narutaru explore what happens when people are suddenly granted great powers and how these powers always seem to bring out the worst side of humanity. While Shadow Star Narutaru is initially a bright story, do not let it fool you as it will quickly turn into a world filled with human suffering, similar to the one explored in Night Head Genesis. Ultimately, great powers always require great responsibility, and Night Head Genesis and Shadow Star Narutaru shows what happens when people forsake these responsbilities.

Sukisho

Sukisho

Though Sukisho has more comedy, and Night Head Genesis is more of a drama, both of these anime tell the story of two people who develop a close bond because of the circumstances of their youth. As the back stories are revealed, we see the hardships that were faced, and how these boys coped with the situation.
