Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary.

Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

The Future Diary and Steins;Gate are both anime that will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next.

Both deal with the idea of how your actions in the present will effect your future, with Future Diary having an instant result.

Both have unexpected turns and shocking twist.

And both have endings that will leave you satisfied.

So if you like one, you'll surely like the other.

Robotics;Notes

Robotics;Notes

In the year 2019, the Robotics Club of Central Tanegashima High School has only one goal in mind: to create a working replica of the giant anime robot Gunvarrel! But doing so isn’t easy as the club only has two members: Aki, who took over the project from her now-graduated sister; and Kai, a lazy gamer who’d rather be elsewhere. What’s worse, the school’s vice principal has decided their club is a waste of school funds and plans to shut them down! Now, the duo must convince her otherwise by winning a fighting robot tournament and gaining new, machine-savvy members, but when Kai accidentally stumbles upon an unbelievable conspiracy, the Robotics Club becomes the least of his concerns...

Both Robotics;Notes and Steins;Gate are anime based off video games developed by 5pb. Though their plots vary pretty drastically, they have a similar feel, as they both start out simply, with slice of life elements, but turn out to be something much more deep and intriguing.

SuriZen SuriZen says...

Both are based off visual novels by 5pb, so they have a similair feel to them. Steins;Gate is darker, while Robotics;Notes is more light hearted. Both start off slow using humor to draw you in, but then unfold into something more intriguing. Steins;Gate pulls this off better than Robotics;Notes.

chisakuralucy chisakuralucy says...

Both stories derive from video games made by the same developers.

As for similarities, they are both based on a novel cast of characters who are united by a scientific hobby-related club, inventing in Steins;Gate and creating hobby/giant robots in Robotics;Notes. They are also both science fiction stories set in the present or near future of when they were written, so they are a different kind of science fiction story than you get if you are watching a show set far in the future.

Now there are some major similarities in Haruhi andSteins;Gate. Firstly, a weird main character who has a strong will and is determined to uncover the secrets of the unnatural. Secondly, the entourage the main character gathers around her/him, and especially that one support person with the love/hate relationship. And lastly, the supernatural theme and similair plot twist, without spoiling more.

FatalGlory FatalGlory says...

What does a show revolving around the anthropoid principle and one revolving around time travel have in common you ask? Both shows feature quirky characters, psychological elements, paranormal activity, paranoia and good character development all beneath a sugary exterior that begins to fall apart. So if you enjoyed either one of these shows, then I think that you will enjoy the other. 

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?

If you like weird plans and happenstances and also odd cellphone conversations, both anime are for you. In both stories the characters act very mysteriously. The main character often doesn't know what's really going on, so the viewer is always in anticipation of the next plot twist.

lilien lilien says...

In both animes we follow a similar group of characters, whose actions get the attention of a mysterious and shadowy organization. Although the plot is different (Eden of the East is not about time travelling), both animes have eccentric main characters, good humor, a subtle and nicely paced romance, hackers, neets and the same feeling of suspense and mystery. Also, both animes are obsessed with cellphones.

Gintama

Gintama

In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
