Ai has always lived in the shadow of his brother Zero, one of the strongest psychics of this generation. After Ai's aura tests true and he is recommended to the Psychic Academy (where his first love Orina attends), he sets off to follow his path. Once arriving in this chaotic place, where people can fight using just the power of their auras, new friends (such as the well-endowed Myuu) are drawn to his side. As he is forced to fight against those who hate psychics and psychics alike, he is also faced with a difficult choice: the girl from his past, or his new fiery soulmate?
Ever since they met, emotionless Hotaru and ditzy Mikanhave been best friends, and are virtually inseparable-- that is, until Hotaru is invited to attend a strange school far away, a school for those who have special abilities known as "Alice". Unable to be separated from her friend, Mikan soon sets out on a mission to find her. After traveling to a city far away, she finds Hotaru at last, but gets much more than she bargained for. Now, she is lost in a school full of kids with strange powers, unusual animals, and has secured an immediate rivalry with the toughest little punk in town!
If you liked Psychic Academy you would like Gakuen Alice because they are both about a school with people who have special powers. The main characters are both unaware of their true power until after they enroll into the school.
Takasu Ayako can handle anything; duels with foreign powers and assassination attempts don’t faze her. But can she handle falling in love? Fellow students at the prestigious school for Beatrice users are shocked to hear that their "Angel of Death" Ayako, who has never even shown a smile before, has fallen in love at first sight with the diminutive freshman Yoshimura Mamoru. Mamoru must decide how to respond to the sudden confession of love, the resulting fascination of his fellow students, and the dangers of being near Ayako. Will his own powers ever measure up?
Psychic acadamy and Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo!are both anime about characters going to a special school to learn to control their special abilities. Love interests, comedic relief. In both there are two different love interests and sometimes it hard to decide who to root for. These anime go perfect for each other
Some years into the future, a strange, unexplainable natural disaster has broken off a piece of the Japanese mainland. Known as the Lost Ground, it is now inhabited by people with Alters -- machine-like extensions of their own will. In order to keep the peace on the Lost Ground, the HOLY organization uses its own Alter capabilists to police the region. In the midst of the chaos is a young man named Kazuma, whose life will soon change forever as he discovers his hidden abilities, and how to wield them.
Both of these series have strikingly similar plotlines. In both series, there arises a new sub-population of people with extraordinary powers of a psychic nature. In psychic acadeny these powers are known as "auras", while in s-cry-ed they are known as "alters". In both series, each person has their own individual type of aura/alter. Each series also has a governmental group that is seemingly trying to corral & educate these special people, but which seem to have something more sinister up their sleeves.
Psychic academy has a lighter tone than s-cry-ed, but if you liked the plot of one, you will also like the other.
In the technologically-advanced Academy City, millions of students study superhuman and psychic powers. Judgment, a group made up of specially-trained students and adults, helps combat threats to the city and its people by helping apprehend power-wielding criminals. Mikoto, Kazari and Kuroko are three friends who juggle school and Judgment, all the while learning how to best use their skills. Together, they will help keep Academy City safe from the bad guys and have plenty of fun in the process.
Chrome Shelled Regios and To Aru Kagaku no Railgun have obvious initial similarity: Students with special abilities. Beyond that, both series have a strong social component between the characters in the storylines that I feel is somewhat similar.
If you enjoyed one of these series, you should try the other.
