Synopsis:

Harry MacQuinn is a teenage loner. He's frightened of confrontation, is extremely awkward, is all but invisible at his school, and has no self-confidence; but there's one thing that makes him unique: Harry has telekinetic powers. After he haphazardly saves Catherine - a girl he has a crush on - from attackers, he unwittingly reveals his powers to her. And after his powers are seen on video, events unfold that bring to light an interest in Harry from a secretive organization, attention from the local police, and the most dangerous aspect of Harry's ability: every time he uses his powers, someone near him dies.

Night Head Genesis

Night Head Genesis

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 them have psychic powers involving misterious that almost always are related with death and some organization manipulating.

Anyway, the plot is based (in both cases) in Gerge Iida's manga.

kissmetgen

Both series are about teens with physic powers and goons after them. However, Night Head Genesis sourrounds two siblings, whereas, Sci Fi Harry concerns only one teen. The plot moves a little faster in Sci Fi Harry though.

LeaT

Based off similar premises, Sci-Fi Harry and Night Head Genesis attempt to explore what happens when psychic powers are granted to humanity and how powerful people will always be interested to use and control these powers for their own ends, leaving a trail of human suffering behind them. Suffering are very strong themes in both shows, and they attempt to show what happens if people are left to suffer but also what they are capable of when feeling loved.

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied

For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...

Both Elfen Lied and Sci-fi Harry focus on the ability to kill with psychic powers. The animation in both series is very crisp and the characters are all very distinct. If you liked one you'd probably like the other.

NimirRa

The strange and formidable powers the characters of these two shows have tie them together. Though the plots are quite different they both feature violent acts that arise from these powers and people that are determined not to let it fall into the wrong hands.

Gilgamesh

Gilgamesh

Two siblings, Kiyoko and Tatsuya, live in a future reshaped by a terrorist attack known only as "Twin X". In this terrible new world, advanced technology such as computers and radios no longer function and even the very sky has become something terrifyingly alien. With the siblings' mother dead, they are hunted by loan sharks who want recompense for her debt as well as a mysterious Countess who wants them for her own reasons. Even worse, they are also coveted by their father, the terrorist who caused the "Twin X", Gilgamesh!

Both anime are about "looser" children who get powers that will somehow help save the world they live in. Both leave you feeling a little numb inside and confused weather you enjoyed watching the anime or hated it. I felt this way and I still don't know how I feel about them to this day. Check one out if you "liked" or "hated" the other.

neutrino

These are both stories about adults meddling around with encoding psychic powers in genetics, and the terrible consequences of their actions.  Neither of them  are particularily good, but have an interesting premise.

Blood+

Blood+

In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness. With the undying love and support of her family and friends, she struggles to gain the strength to move forward and regain the pieces of her shattered memories.

Throughout Sci-Fi Harry, I was constantly reminded of Blood+, mainly because the art was similar, but also because the premises seemed alike.  Both involve teenagers who think they're ordinary,  but quickly find out they are not.  They both have secret powers that get them caught up in shadowy organizations that take away from the intruiging premise of the initial plot.

E's Otherwise

E's Otherwise

In the not too distant future, discrimination is based not on the color of your skin, but the psychic powers you possess. The wielders of these skills (known as E's) are persecuted in the slums of Gald, but are coveted in Ashuram, a military organization dedicated to enhancing these abilities for mysterious purposes. For one man named Kai, his journey from one of Ashuram's best to one of Gald's finest will take him through the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy not only all E's, but all humans on the planet as well...

Sci-fi Harry and E’s Otherwise both contain psychics (or psychic). Because they are psychics there are organizations that want to control them. Not only control but to study as well. Both, Harry and Kai, get captured, run away, and fight back.
