If you liked the Yumekui Merry anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
When Makoto saw Kotonoha on the train one day, he fell in love at first sight. Luckily, his classmate Sekai’s nosy personality ensures him an introduction to his crush, and soon the two begin to date. However, Kotonoha isn’t the only one with eyes for Makoto - a fact that any horny teenager would be delighted with. With endless temptations, lies and heartbreak at every turn, Makoto and Kotonoha’s relationship will soon be put to the ultimate test...
Both animes start light-hearted and develop quickly in too dark story that don't let go, both characters have to come to term with what they have done and the damage it has cause. Also character who look innocent can be very misleading...
The dark undertones of School Days and Yumekui Merry reveal themselves little by little as the stories unfold. As the characters develop the heavy weight of their actions come through.
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!
Soul Eater and Yumekui Merry both have an oddly similar feel to it, although they are fairly different.
In Soul Eater, people turn into weapons to weapons and their partners use them to fight demon-like enemies.
In Yumekui Merry, Dream Demons need Vessels in order to exist in reality.
Here's where they start seeming kind of similar: In both series the Demons are drawn to/by the most powerful among them, and the main characters are partners which fight these demons in order to achieve their ambitions (like getting home, or becoming a Death-Scythe). Whenever something important happens in either of these series, they give off the feeling of it being partially distorted; like it isn't really happening, but you know for a fact that it is.
Soul Eater seems to focus on Action, Fighting, and Characters
Yumekui Merry seems to focus on the Storyline/Plot, and Characters.
All this may change soon enough (considering I'm writing this just after 6 episodes of Yumekui Merry first airing), but I do think that if you like one, you'll like the other.
i didn't think i would see the punk style of soul eater again but here it is, and in my opinion Dream Eater Merry is better in that field but soul eater is superior in the script department, worth watching both
Athletic Mato is excited to start middle school and meet new people, including Yomi, an artistic girl who doesn't open up easily to others. While awkward around each other at first, things change when the girls discover their mutual obsession for a fantastical picture book. But just as the pair becomes fast friends, they're torn apart by a cruel, wheelchair-bound girl who considers Yomi her personal possession and refuses to let anyone else near her. What's worse, Mato has recently begun to have strange dreams about girls brawling in bizarre colorful worlds that seem to parallel her personal struggles. With jealousy, insecurity, and foreboding dreams always getting in the way, can the two girls ever become true friends?
They both deal with supernatural dreamlike worlds that can influence the real world and the emotions of people, and they do that by creating a very enigmatic and mysterious atmosphere. Weird and cool fights are also something they share. While Yumekui is a bit more shounen-ish and less serious (and it also lacks a proper ending), I think those who got caught by the style and execution of one of these series will recognize the resemblance and like the other the same way.
If you liked Yumekui Merry or Horizon in the middle of Nowhere you would like the other because:
In Dreameater merry, the male main character has a magical gift to see dreams. The two main characters team up to bring the female main character, Merry, back to the dream world. Merry has a lonely past in the human world for 10 seasons(years) or a number realitively close.
In Horizon the main character also has a lonely past and compensated his love for a missed one as being a male-slut(sorry for my lack of vocabulary). His goal is to help others get happy as suggested from his sister and his ultimate goal is to tell his loved friend from the past that he loves her and live happily-ever-after. He's also gone about 10 years or so without her.
Long story short, watch the recommendation.
When people dream, they express their utmost desires and emotions within the confines of their mind; but when their strong emotions cross the border into reality, the dream can turn into an uncontrollable nightmare. Touko and Rinko are sisters known as "yume tsukai" (dream users), and their job is to take care of these nightmares. Using toys as weapons, the girls must both destroy the nightmare and return the dream to its rightful owner before the nightmare does any sort of serious damage. Have no fear, Touko and Rinko are here!
Both are about dreams and how to deal with them, and while Yume Tsukai may look bright and cutesy, it can sometimes be much darker than Yumekui Merry.
If you like one, then there's a good chance you'll enjoy the other.
