Darker Than Black - Kuro no Keiyakusha

Darker Than Black - Kuro no Keiyakusha

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?

Darker Than Black and X are supernatural shows dealing with forces that fight each other for their reasons integrated with heavy dialoge, character focus, and plot twists that lead to a shocking conclusion delivered by the complex climax which the main character have to make difficult decisions on.

D.Gray-man and X TV are about good and evil, and the unclear line between it. Would the world be best off destroyed, or saved?

X is darker and deals more with the mystical, but both are apocalyptic stories, and both have the theme of humans wasting and destroying our own planet.

Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

In the near future, the outbreak of a terrible disease called the Apocolypse Virus places Japan under the military rule of a global organization called the GHQ - a group tasked with checking the spread of the virus and administering vaccinations. Apathetic high school student Shuu Ouma lives in Tokyo, spending his days editing videos and trying to be left alone. But things change when he meets the beautiful pop idol, Inori, who is on the run from GHQ soldiers. While trying to save her from her captors, he acquires a mysterious power called the Void Gene that allows him to pull items or weapons from anyone under the age of seventeen. Now, Shuu must decide whether to join the efforts of the well-funded radical terrorist group "Funeral Parlor" and fight against the GHQ, or shrug off his newfound power and resume his normal life - assuming that either the GHQ or Funeral Parlor's charismatic leader, Gai, will let him.

If you're familiar with Code Geass, you should also be familiar with X/1999 which is the kind of the foundation for Code Geass. Guilty Crown has a similar story and tone to X as both are dark, tragic, supernatural, and apocalyptic except that GC is more sci fi than X as X is more inclined to supernatural. Japan is the setting in both stories and serves as the battlefields as well which costs the character's lives episode by episode leaving the surviving characters the not so simple finale.
