The Holy Grail War is a battle between seven magicians who each summon a mythical hero to fight for their cause. Shirou, a twice orphaned high school boy, had so little magical talent that his foster father did not bother teaching him about the war and its meaning. Thanks to that lack of foresight, Shirou finds himself in a bit of a pinch when he accidentally summons a hero of the strongest class, and is sucked into the fray. The Grail grants the winner any wish they have. But driven by an unyielding sense of justice and self-sacrifice, for what will Shirou fight?
This title and this series are remarkably similar to each other. Almost to the point of just swaping characters in some cases. The story and settings are similar and the characters are almost literaly the same archytypes. Even the characters powers particularly the main characters are almost the same. If you enjoy this series you will like the other and vice versa since its pretty much the same scenario except told by a differant storyteller.
Yumekui Merry and Fate/stay Night have many of the same personality characteristics, even to the point that the powers of the characters are strikingly similar to one another.

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.

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.

When humans came down from the sky they brought the Testament, the guide to the path they must follow if they wish to return to the skies. Now, in a world where only the islands of Japan are inhabitable, the nations of the world vie for power. But the Testament ends abruptly, and it is now the last year. Is this the end of humanity, or can Tori Aoi and his fellow students somehow affect the course of destiny? Who and what is the Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere?
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.
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.
