In downtown Tokyo, walking the streets has become dangerous once the day turns to night. Lifeless demons called "Oni" have taken over the streets and are devouring innocent citizens of Tokyo, leaving them dry and lifeless. Kyouichi and Tatsuma are two high school students who hold supernatural abilities that allow them to defeat the Oni at night. Though they continue to fight what seems to be a never ending battle, they've yet to discover the main threat towards humanity -- the group working behind the scenes in charge of the Oni...
Well, both Red Garden and Tokyo Majin deal with a group of students who - despite the fact that they would normally have nothing to do with each other - wind up having to band together by night to take on some unknown demonic sort of threat. Unsurprisingly this sends both anime a similar direction, involving some degree of investigation into the enemy, the characters learning to get along, and naturally some battle.
Although Tokyo Majin doesn't have the kind of drama in the character's daily lives that Red Garden does, and Red Garden doesn't have the tao mysticism that pervades Tokyo Majin, these two anime still feel awfully alike. So, unless the only draw for the one you watched was that mysticism or that drama, you should certainly find the other one to your liking.
The pace of this anime is almost the same. There are five 'chosen" individuals in this series compared to four in Red Garden.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Red Garden and Darker than Black are intelligent anime that have strong and intricate plots. They both deal with people with superhuman powers and examine how people struggle to deal with them. The action in both series is exciting and well-executed visually. Chances are if you like one you will enjoy the other as both have strong underlying mystery themes and plenty of high quality action.
Red Garden and Darker than black share a stylishly animated approach to supernatural, future based anime which emphasise the main plots. There are some similarities between the two in terms of plot and the evolving relationships of the groups in them, Red Garden focusing more on forming bonds than the slightly more action orientated Darker Than Black. Essentially, motives are unclear as a result of the organisations they are employed by and the little understanding of their overall purpose.
What happens when authority and consequence are removed? When the inmates truly run the asylum. On the spaceship Ryvius there are those who would fight for order, and many more who would fight to destroy it. Love, hate, anger, greed, avarice, and perhaps hope are the fuel for the Ryvius, and only one can save those who call it home...
Murao Mima has created a robot daughter named Key, but after raising her for a very short time, Mima dies, leaving behind cryptic messages telling Key how she can become human. Key must struggle alone to learn the harsh lessons of life and search for the 'key' to her own dream: the power of 30,000 friends to make her a real human girl.
If you like anime with a plotline that is obscure and cryptic, and only comes clear over time, while retaining a strong sense of characterization, then you'll be happy to know that these are the common traits shared by Key the Metal Idol and Red Garden. Another feature of both these anime is a nebulous and threatening enemy which proves difficult, if not impossible, to get a grip on, let alone defeat.
There is a legend of an angel who fell to Earth many years ago, and was forced to marry a man because he held the key to her only way home. Hundreds of years later, sixteen year old Mikage Aya is the reincarnation of Ceres, the vengeful angel, who must now fight for her life against her family and her own twin brother Aki, the reincarnation of her past evil husband...
