These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh.

Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

Although these two series take place in very different worlds, they are both shows packed with emotional, powerful storylines and plenty of action (though Claymore is more bloody). The concepts behind the stories are also different, but both are attention-grabbing, intense, and entertaining. If you enjoyed the quality of the story in one, you should enjoy the other.

Elfen Lied

Both series have a foreboding, dark vibe to them. Though placed in very different worlds, the theme shared between them is a disturbing mystery shrouded from common knowledge. Elfen Lied is more bloody, but both provide action and intensity with an enticing story.

Eve no Jikan

Eve no Jikan

In the future, androids live side by side with humans – but not as their equals, as their slaves. Though they look identical, these androids must display a holographic ring over their heads so the difference is clear. One day, a boy named Rikuo finds abnormal activity patterns in the logs of his own android, and alongside his friend Masaki, he sets forth to find where the android has been. Much to their surprise, the duo discovers a secret café known as Eve no Jikan with a single rule: within its walls, there must be no discrimination between humans and robots. In this place, androids appear to be human and are even displaying signs of independence – a trait that should not be possible. Rikou finds his perceptions increasingly challenged as he struggles to come to terms with his own android, and the relationship between man and machines...

Both series take place in technologically-advanced societies which contain loads of controversy about the new systems in place, the way cultures perceive technology, and the limits between human and machine. Each series causes the viewer to think about negatives and positives of these societies and consider for themselves how they might handle living in these situations. Eve no Jikan is a little more lighthearted, while Psycho-pass is more melancholy, but both provide subject matter that runs deep.

These two have a very similar plot and feel. Both take place in a high-tech future where society is tightly controlled by a central system. Both are essentially murder mysteries in which the characters search for the meaning behind serial killings, which leads them to a greater truth about the structure of society. I think that if you enjoyed one, you would definitely like the other.

Un-Go

Crimes. What makes some people commit them, and are we really that different? That's the theme both of these series explore. Set in more technologically advanced settings than our own (Psycho-pass more than UN-GO), both series explore the dark side of humanity, and anyone who enjoyed one will likely enjoy the other.
