Normal schoolboy develops a romance with a supernatural horror-themed girl? Check. Manages to develop deep themes, eery auras, and love-stories that break the cliches involving characters you care for? Check. Interesting visual styles and musical choices? Check. These two surprises both hit the airwaves in Spring 2012, and while they shared the above similarities, they were very different in plots, tone, and styles. Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is the at times tragic, at times comical, love story involving a ghost. Sankarea is the bizarre and disturbing love story involving zombies. Both are fresh and massively entertaining. Give them a shot.
A human schoolboy and a girl who has died but then came back. Tasogare and Sankarea's main themes were quite similar, in addition to which they both also paid attention to practical problems involving such a romance. Whether it was a problem with public displays of affection in Tasogare or trying to figure out how to slow down decay in Sankarea, they both deconstruct the idea of the "cute ghost girl". Both also balance between the feeling that the couple's love will eventually end when the girl passes on and the hope that the status quo can be preserved somehow.
These both revolve around a boy and a girl who is not quiet human. Both deal with the dynamics of a relationship that was never meant to be and death. not to mention the female leads lood similar. Anyway if you like the angle one takes on supernatural relationships you may also enjoy the other.
A romance between a slightly naive boy and a dead girl. The heroine of Dusk Miaden of Amnesia is a ghost while in Sankarea, it's a zombie. Both of the male leads in these two series look after the heroine while attempting to find a solution to allow these undead girls to live a happy life. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia is much more dramatic than Sankarea but if you enjoy one series, you will definitely enjoy the other.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
Supernatural elements, mystery, ghosts who won't rest, twists in plot, comedy introducing the characters giving way to drama as we delve deep into their pasts. Both Tasogare Otome x Amnesia and Angel Beats! have all these in common. And they're both excellent shows in their own rights. If you enjoyed one, I'm sure you'll enjoy the other.
Both animes have a simular plot, and is very serious, but has a twist of humor and romance.
And of cause it is filled with charecters you cannot do nothing but love
It was hard for me to classify either of these shows into a single genre; both are a blend of school life, action, and something darker. The pace in both is similar, with the dark parts of the plot barely being hinted at until, in the end, dark truths are revealed.
Long ago, young Meiko Honma tragically died and her tight-knit group of friends, shaken by the event, drifted apart. Now, ten years later, Meiko has re-appeared as a ghost that only Jinta, the former leader of the gang and an avid shut-in, can see. All she desires is for Jinta to fulfill her final wish so that she can move on to the afterlife, but with no memory of what it was, it’s up to the teenager to gather his former friends and discover what will allow his beloved friend to rest in peace. With so many feelings left unsaid, can this group work out their strife and help the ghost of the girl they once adored?
In both animes, there is a ghost of a dead girl who can be seen only by main hero and noone else. Even if these titles are different, because Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is slight horror, artistic and mystery while AnoHana is somehow slice-of-life and romance, they resemble each other in aspect of "dead girl wandering around as a ghost". If you're looking for something like that, you'll like each other!
They both have normal, male main characters in love with a dead, female character that needs to do something in order to move on. And both dead, female main characters don't remember something important.
Both series revolve around the male protagonist being able to see the female protagonist's ghost. Dusk Maiden has comedy, but both are dramas. The focus of each differ slightly, since Anohana is about dealing with someone's death, while Dusk Maiden is about accepting your own death.
26 years ago, something terrible happened in a middle school’s third year classroom. A popular, talented student named Misaki suddenly died, and the ramifications of that incident have caused each third year class since then to live in fear. It is now 1998, and Kouchi Sakakibara has just transferred into the notorious classroom, curious about the mysterious secret that his peers are hiding from him. He’s drawn to one enigmatic girl named Mei Misaki, a quiet student who wears an eye patch and warns him about getting involved with her, and continues to seek her out against the pleas of his classmates. And that’s when people begin to violently die...
Both of these shows start with a similar feel. The horror/mystery at school. They both have a similar seriousness to them, but Another will stick more to the horror theme, while Dusk Maiden will be more sillier at times and move to a more romantic plot. However, I suspect that if you like one you might like the other, keeping in mind these differences.
Both are deal with mysteries surrounding the female lead and both deal with spirits. They also have a dark tone to them while also retaining some lighthearted moments of comedy. They have very similar settings also. It's not hard to see how you could enjoy one if you enjoyed the other.
Both have a similar feel, both quite dark, though Dusk Maiden is often more light-hearted, both extremely good animes and both worth watching for anyone who likes the supernatural!!
Mai Taniyama is a first year high school student who lives a carefree life telling ghost stories with her friends. One day, she meets Kazuya Shibuya, the head of Shibuya Psychic Research (SPR); and together, she tags along to help him investigate paranormal activities in a haunted school building. His assistant Lin was hurt during an incident to protect Mai from danger, so what more can Mai do than to take the job as Shibuya's assistant? Along with a team of other ghost hunters, they will uncover the mystery of a strange case coming their way, while Mai starts to discover her own abilities.
Both Ghost Hunt and Tasogare Otome X Amnesia have a good mixture of romance and horror. They both have the "paranormal activity investigation" element where the truth to ghost stories and superstitions is constantly challenged only to be proven later on.
If you liked the serious approach to horror stories in one, you'll love the other!
I love the intricacy of the ghost stories that appear in both. They have elements of comedy and romance (a little over done in Tasogare but that also acts as part of the plot so it isn't bothersome) Even with those elements they still are able to portray the severity and morbidity of the death of characters. Ghost hunt has a variety of stories while Tasogare only has one, and Ghost Hunt ghost keep their 'mystical existence' while in Tasogare the ghost is simply portrayed as not being able to be seen by humans, but hardly scary (but because of that, they can do some fun jokes).
