In the technologically-advanced Academy City, millions of students study superhuman and psychic powers. Judgment, a group made up of specially-trained students and adults, helps combat threats to the city and its people by helping apprehend power-wielding criminals. Mikoto, Kazari and Kuroko are three friends who juggle school and Judgment, all the while learning how to best use their skills. Together, they will help keep Academy City safe from the bad guys and have plenty of fun in the process.
In the town of Sakurashin, demons and humans live together in harmony; and to help transition its new members, the Youkai Life Consultation Office provides support and guidance. Its members contain mind reading, cat-eared Ao, strong and beautiful Hime, conjurer Kotoha, and Akina - a human with the ability to vanquish the souls of harmful demons. Together, the quartet will help the town stay safe and try to keep the peace between humans, demons, and those who would harm them.
Railgun and Yozakura Quartet aren't exactly the same, but both involves a group of people protecting a 'magical' type of city and helping out its residents. I got the same 'meh' feeling from both as well.
Both anime have children protecting a town with their superpowers. Both have annoying and lovable characters too. Very similar art style as well. If you liked one check out the other.
In a post-apocalyptic world overrun with great beasts called Filth Monsters, a glimmering dome protrudes from the wasteland. This is Zuellni, a mobile city unique for having a consciousness in the form of ‘electronic fairies’. Moreover, Zuellni is an academy where the next generation of powerful Heavens-Blade wielders gather to pit their strength against each other in inter-platoon competitions. Nina Antalk, military student and leader of the 17th Platoon, is intent on recruiting only the best; thus, when mysterious Layfon Alseif transfers to the academy, she instantly recognizes his abilities and decides he’s the perfect candidate to join her group. However, with a secret past that won’t leave him alone, and unknown powers beyond the academy taking an interest in Zuellni, Layfon joining the team is only the start of all their troubles.
Chrome Shelled Regios and To Aru Kagaku no Railgun feel familiar. Part of it is the school setting, with students having special abilities. And of course, there is the girl who has worked hard to bring the level of the ability to wear it is now. And of course, there is plenty of fighting in both of them.
Regios is more action oriented, and the school setting a bit more militant, while Railgun is more relaxed and has more social interaction. However, I am sure if you enjoyed one, you would enjoy the other.
Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?
As I watch To aru Kagaku no Railgun I can't help but notice the similarities between it and My-Hime. For starters both anime have a slightly ecchi feel to them but not so overwhelming that you are compelled to find a new show. Also, both anime deal with characters that have super powers and their learning of how they work (and use them in combat). There is also a good deal of humor in both of them (usually at the expense of one of the characters).
Though I have to say that one of the biggest comparisions I have to make is between Mai and Misaka Mikoto. They both are similar character archtypes (complete with their loving and clingy sidekicks) and both have a ton of power. The also are quite similar when it comes to disposition as well.
One more comparision for you between these 2 series is the sheer size of the cast. The both have a lot of characters in them and there appears to be a character for everyone in both series. You like Tsundere's? They both have that. You like shy and quiet? Got that too. The both do a great job of building up the characters as well so you will become quickly attached.
If you like one of these you are sure to like the other.
Ai has always lived in the shadow of his brother Zero, one of the strongest psychics of this generation. After Ai's aura tests true and he is recommended to the Psychic Academy (where his first love Orina attends), he sets off to follow his path. Once arriving in this chaotic place, where people can fight using just the power of their auras, new friends (such as the well-endowed Myuu) are drawn to his side. As he is forced to fight against those who hate psychics and psychics alike, he is also faced with a difficult choice: the girl from his past, or his new fiery soulmate?
Chrome Shelled Regios and To Aru Kagaku no Railgun have obvious initial similarity: Students with special abilities. Beyond that, both series have a strong social component between the characters in the storylines that I feel is somewhat similar.
If you enjoyed one of these series, you should try the other.
In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
They both take place at an academy or city that was built for children to learn how to hone their superpowers and skills. Both have the school life theme along with plenty of action during most episodes. Both have a lot of duels and back strories to not only the main characters but to the supporting cast as well. Both main characters have a female protagonist. All in all, soul eater is mostly a light hearted story that at times can become fast past and entertaining much like To Aru Kagaku no Railgun.
