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!!

Both maybe diffrent but they both ahre the same genre and both have a deep plot. Also, both characters have to stuggle to find the cause of the curses thaey have to undergo.
Both are "mystery horror" type anime, albeit of a different plot line. Enjoyable story lines, and characters going through dark events.

both girls looks like dolls. but in rozen maiden they actually live. an in another ( i hope the don't live) and the tinds that happend are supernatural. both anime are worth to watch
The theme of dolls is heavily represented in both anime. Though Another is considerably more light hearted than Rozen Maiden, they still share many of the same aspects.
Rozen Maiden focuses more on how to make the most of your life when it gets bad, wheras Another mostly just makes you curious and tries to scare you. In Rozen Maiden the happy scenes are there to make you feel better after the scarier ones, but in Another they give you a nice scene first to make the scary ones that much scarier...
In my opinion; if you are planning on watching both, it would be better to watch Rozen Maiden first.
Both animes have in their own concept a dark/creppy yet classical ambience and a psychological relevance. Maybe it's the opening of Another that transmits such feeling, but the classical music and plus the porcelain dolls do the trick and reminds me of Rozen Maiden.
