Angel Beats!

Angel Beats!

Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?

The reason i make this recommendation.Is both series deal with judgement and moving on after death one occurs at a highschool  one occurs at a bar both have differnt ways of dealing with death and unfished buisness but both shows have the people who have passed on work thourgh their lives and in the end move on to wherever they need to go. Both shows tug at your emotions and feelings as you feel empathy for the characters. Both shows also make you think seriously and offer some thought provoking moments. That is why i recommend angel beats if you liked death parade.

lizardgarden lizardgarden says...

Similar premise. Not quite as dark as Death Parade but also takes place in between life and death and is pretty sad 

zorlop zorlop says...

Both of these animes operate on a different plane of existence. Making us all think what really happens after we die. Both are great series' and have a terrific ending

Riruri Riruri says...

Both of these anime have the same life after death concept. Although Death Parade is a little bit darker than Angel Beats they are both pretty sad anime.

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Similar background, following the life after death and tackles the different problems when it comes to death and going to Heaven or to Hell. Both anime have a touching ending and are filled with loveable characters that you will easily get attached to.

TallyCrow TallyCrow says...

Death is the main subject with both of these Anime. 

Although Death Parade does it in a darker twisted away while Angel beats does it in a more comedic way.

Both of them bring out emotions you never thought you had with dramatic, intense storylines and memories from the characters. 

I loved seeing both versions of the afterlife from the Anime and I really loved both equally. 

NikorasuX NikorasuX says...

Both stories follow the concept of the transition between death and the afterlife. Although Death Parade is a darker anime, both animes present characters with very touching backstories that are developed throughout the series.

pikachu203 pikachu203 says...

While I will admit Death Parade tends to be more graphic and open with it's dark themes, both Angel Beats and Death Parade focus on the afterlife, or - more specifically - what people experience before reincarnation.  They both are highly emotional, and have fascinating insights on life after death, understanding one's existence and it's meaning, the judgement of souls after death, coming to terms with one's passing, and the hope and despair that comes with it.  Both shows are well-crafted, and have creative imagery and beautiful animation.  Overall, Death Parade is far darker than Angel Beats, but if you enjoyed one, you would likely enjoy the other.

ccallstar111 ccallstar111 says...

Both shows discuss the issue of what happens when a person dies. Both shows are incredibly emotional and deal with grief and the pain behind memories of one's life. They both are set in a limbo-like location. Both have bitter sweet endings.

haeleu haeleu says...

Angel Beats! is very similar to death parade, but it has less explanation and more action. I'd recommend Angel Beats! for those who like the idea of a situation that would occur after death, same goes for Death Parade. Both of these are fantastic animes and really enticed me to getting to know the characters. watch it!

Hell Girl

Hell Girl

Has someone done something to hurt you or the ones you love? Are you seeking revenge? Rumor has it that there’s a website that can service your needs. Titled “Hotline to Hell”, it contains a form that can be accessed only at midnight. Type in a name, and the Hell Girl will carry out your bidding – for a price. For though your appetite for revenge will be satisfied, your soul will also be condemned to hell after you die. But who is the Hell Girl, and does she care whether your revenge is justified? Apparently not, as long as she gets more souls…

GrondXIII GrondXIII says...

Both are anime that peer into the hearts of "guest characters" through the eyes of the main characters. Where Hell Girl does so to send souls to hell, Death Parade does so to determine whether souls get sent to be reincarnated or to oblivion.

PantheraLeo PantheraLeo says...

Both shows are incredibly similar. Both are about passing judgement on people. Both have very corofull casts.

doubletwix doubletwix says...

Both anime explore the idea of life and death, they both include judgements as for Death Parade who looks into the idea of void and recreation, Jigoku Shoujo just looks into hell.

ratihoct ratihoct says...

death parade has a good story with interesting characters. belive me, you'll love it!

ka0nashi ka0nashi says...

Both Death Parade and Jigoku Shoujo have the same format and a similar storyline as well as the overall aura and genre

yunaleska yunaleska says...

Who judges acts in life or death?Who decides whether you deserve heaven or hell?

In both entities some entities act as judges or executioners, as emissaries of hell.

Both anime have the high-stakes adrenaline feel, but include strategy and critical thinking into the plot. Not much else to say. If you like either of these anime, you're sure to like the other.

staffordshire staffordshire says...

death and survival type animes. both looking promissing, good staff behind the shows,so they have to be good.

tennis101101 tennis101101 says...

Both of these animes involve you putting your "life" on the line. Also both of these animes involve high stakes games that gets your blood floowing and has you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what happens next.

thor123 thor123 says...

Both anime feature people who are forced to play different games, in order to survive. The mental / psychological consequences of these games are also important in both anime.

YariMari YariMari says...

High-stake games where the characters are put into life-or-death sitations. Both are intense psychological anime.

They are not similar in regards to the storyline or characters but both deal with death, humanity, inhumanity, and moral judgements. If you like one you very well may like the other.

This is something you should see. These is a Anime that almost made me cry it was emotional and was sad had thriller and is something you should see. It was also funny.

They are related as in Death Note, he chooses who lives or dies, in Death Parade you choose who goes to Heaven or Hell.

They are pretty similar to my opinion. Both are play to win anime type and both give you that senzation of satisfaction and curiosity. The caracters are similar too, the story is captivating. 

ElisaNoIppo ElisaNoIppo says...

both very interesting and dark. Also have a good twist. Without spoiling mirai nikki becomes bery confusing especially because of the girl whilst death parade confuses the characters playing. Both worth the watch

If you're a fan of the high stakes game genre, I'd also recommend checking out Extreme Escape. Both Death Parade and Extreme Escape are about strangers who are gathered together to play a damgerous game that has mysterious grave consequences. They're both great high-tension thrillers. Unfortunately, because Extreme Escape is a promotional video only, you'll have to pick up the video game for the ending.

Mononoke and Death Parade are two hauntingly beautiful shows that will make you think. Throughout the episodes, the viewer meets various characters and will get the chance to know them; their personality, thoughts and feelings, and eventually their past are all laid out. This all done through the efforts of the show's respective main character; Kusuriuri with his 'special tools' in Mononoke, Decim and the life or death games held within his bar. Both shows are based on human nature and share a similar theme of "there's more than meets the eye", and are overall very, very gorgeous. You won't want to miss either one.

Psycho-Pass

Psycho-Pass

In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.

Much like Death Parade, Psycho-Pass deals with the core of humanity. Psycho-Pass tends to get more philosophical than Death Parade so that’s a major plus.

Both are what I would call mindfuck anime.  They are everything-possible-is-wrong anime that for that very reason are so powerful.  Each is an exploration of the human mind and condision in a different way, both are more about the philosophical themes they explore, than about story or characters.
