In both of that series the main idea is to `repair the world`. Both have lots of mystery but in Eden of the East last episode didn't answer to all questions.   And also Akira is similar in appearance to L.

BRID BRID says...

Both Death Note and Eden have a similar plot point in it, that out of no where the main character is given something that he is able to change the the world/country with.although this plot point changes in both animes.alot about these animes are different and similar in many ways. if u have seen either anime you would know that the main character finds out there are other people in the world/country, in the same situation as he is in (with a book or cellphone)this is another similarity.although this is slightly off a gut feeling i know u will like these animes. :)

Do you like the game? Do you want to lose the game? Death Note and Eden of the East both have a male protagonist struggling to come to grips with the rules and regulations of a rigid cage. Fast-paced, exciting, and suspenseful is how I'd describe both series. I say: watch the mice play mouse trap. See who ends out on top.

eaper eaper says...

Both of these animes are well thought out with plots that can keep you guessing. Both of these series have the protagonist given a new power in which they can change the world with.

badazz5001 badazz5001 says...

Bouth series have a lot to do with pshychollogy and morallitey. BOuth have to do with changing the world by using contovershil means and bouth have simmiler animation and thems of memorey and discovering god like powers.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

Eden of the East and Death Note are two suspenseful shows in which mind games between characters play a big part in the story. In both shows, a young man is given a tremendous power, with which he has the ability to change the world to how he sees fit. Along the way, he meets opponents he has to slyly outsmart in order to continue his plan. While Eden of the East has more mystery to it, and Death Note better suspense, I feel that if you liked one of these series, the other will definitely appeal to you!

HollowNobody HollowNobody says...

Eden of the East and Death Note are both stories of an average guy gaining the power to change his world. In both shows the power bestowed is used by the protagonist to obtain a lofty status.These shows are also similar in that they are fast-paced, thought-provoking, and full of mysterious circumstances.

MageOnx MageOnx says...

What if you possesed an item that could help you change the course in which your country is going? What if you could posses an item allpowerful, that could change the world the way you wanted it? What if you possesed an item that would help you become the ultimate saviour and ruler of your new, improved nation? Above all, if you possesed an item like that, would you be able to really save the world? Here's what two ordinary high school students Takizawa Akira (Eden of the East) and Yagami Raito (Death Note) did. One of them hero, one of them anti-hero, one of them successful and one of them not. Every for himself, one of them using others when in need of assistace and one of them gaining help from friends. These two fight for the same thing in the same way, and yet in a very different way and for a very diferent goal. one of them volounterily, and one of them forced. Epic and tragic tales of two young men fighting modern-day Japan society and law, and two very different turn-outs of the same race for creating a Utopia for the ordinary people. If you have watched one and are wondering how things would've turned out with an opposite ending, check out the other one.

thegreatmajeni thegreatmajeni says...

Seem to both be a mystery, and both holds lots of Suspense in them. Though I prefer Death Note, they are both pretty decent series.

VivisQueen VivisQueen says...

High stakes cat and mouse games done in a very sophisticated style - that is the spirit that Death Note and Eden of the East share. Death Note is gothic and plays with moral grey areas while Eden of the East is attempts the slick, high concept Hollywood format. But both turn out to be addictive, edge-of-your-seat shows that work to their strengths with immense energy. Enjoy.

RedCrossRobbery RedCrossRobbery says...

I feel that although Death Note and Eden of the East differ greatly in terms of anime, they both have a core element of young men who essentially have items that can grant them whatever they wish.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these anime evolve around the idea of bringing change to the world. Eden does it with cell phones, while Death Note does it with a little black book. The main character is a young man who uses that power to try and bring his vision of change to a world he considers corrupt. He is aided by a girl, that despite barely knowing him, is completely devoted to him.

anosora anosora says...

Yes they both are changing the world. One forced (Eden) one chose (Death Note). Eden of the East has the romantic side, that Death Note (no offense) brutally murders.

wenchtrix wenchtrix says...

Great mystery plot lines and well written characters. You have to watch the EotE movies as well as the series to get the full experience though. Well worth it!

hum4ntank hum4ntank says...

Both main characters are given the ability to drastically change the world for better or worse and both main characters attempt to cleanse the world from what they see as evil.

lyreth lyreth says...

they're both modern animes that are animated very well. they involve a main character that has some power over others but the power has strict rules and limits. they have a similar feel but Death note is much darker. eden is more bright.

hexicdragon hexicdragon says...

Both of these anime series are undoubtedly similar, some would even go as far as saying Eden of the East is a ripoff of Death Note. The stories in them are both completly diffrent, but if you watch them both you will definetly notice many similarities. Above all though, i would definetly reccomend watching them both, In the end i truely thought it was worth it.

anastasiaIVY anastasiaIVY says...

while the story line is not similar in anyways. i felt that these were very similar animes.

First if you are an L (DN) obsessor you with love Takizawa (EOTE) similar in many ways. cute, kind of mysterious, innocent acting... easy to love!

 Death not is my very favorite anime how ever in some way i feel that it missed afew things.( like a better romance then light and misa) {{{ also Eden of the east has a great love story. GREAT! }}}

both have mysterios story lines that keep turning corners. both have some action and a great mystery. also has you constantly switching sides of who is innocent and who is not. they also seem to be animated almost the same heck L and takizawa almost look and act like the same character in both animes. Both Animes are about a character or characters who are chosen to be something besides a normal person ( ex. for death not characters find the death note and for eden of the east characters are given a special cell phone in lame mans term)

oh also a shinigami and juiz remind me of the same kind of character. both are capable of alot more then normal humans :) haha in some ways....

anyway im almost worried i am giving away too much info....

hands down both are just freaking awesome! watch them both

Durarara!!

Durarara!!

Looking for a change, Mikado moves from the countryside to bustling Ikebukuro to attend the same high school as his best friend, Masaomi. Though navigating a new school and friendships can prove tough by itself, Mikado also finds an overwhelming number of new delights and dangers in the district he now calls home. From a friendly Russian sushi bar to the violent color gangs, to even an urban legend in the form of a black motorcycle rider, each resident of Ikebukuro is unique and frightening. But the town is smaller than it seems at first, and these strange events appear to be connected. Will the growing storm sweep up the transplanted country boy and his friends or will Mikado find himself at the center of a dramatic change for Tokyo?

NeverThatBored NeverThatBored says...

Both of these shows are what I would call truly "modern" animes. Though cell phones and such have been featured in animes for years, these shows both use modern technology and the power of the internet heavily as a part of the plotline and center around the power of connectivity and the internet generation.

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series have a lot of things going on that make it rather confusing and hard to keep up with, but manage to be great series. Other than that, it is kind of just a feeling that draws these series together in my mind.

NimirRa NimirRa says...

Durarara and Eden of the East are two exciting, by the seat-of-your-pants type shows. With very interesting yet mysterious plots, they keep you guessing until the last minute. If you liked the fast paced action of one be sure to check out the other!

BlackEsper BlackEsper says...

Eden of the East and Durarara!! are two surprisingly similar series; their plots could not be more contrasting, with DRRR!! focusing on the underground and Eden on nation-wide matters, yet they have an incredibly similar feel despite DRRR!!'s faster pace, and technology such as mobile phones being heavy elements of their plot only strengthens the similarity. If you enjoyed one story of mystery and intrigue, you're bound to enjoy the other!

Arkohn Arkohn says...

Durarara and Eden are great modern anime. They both feature social networking and technology as plot devices. I also simply loved the animation quality for both of these series. All in all, while the plots are different, both of these series give me the same sort of feeling. If you enjoyed one you will at least appreciate the other.

Lenny Lenny says...

Both are very modern. I'm so sad, that there is no a 'modern' tag ;) Cause the spirit of series are very similar. Characters use mobile phones and computer technologies, the internet and communications helps them in their life. Furthermore, the design and drawing are resembling each other a little bit.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these anime involve getting people together using modern technology, such as the internet and cell phones. The feel of the anime is the same, and the characters are similarly drawn.

anosora anosora says...

They are both modern and up-to-date technology. Drrr has a more fast-paced feel, Eden has a more slow-paced feel. The plot will connect both though.

Don't be skeptic. Try something new!

snivets snivets says...

These two shows leave you wanting more. They are action-packed and suspenseful, yet also have a more sensitive, thoughtful side as they show characters struggling with decisions and relationships. Both also take place in cities, and use both the gritty and the glitzy sides of cities to weave their complex plots.

lyreth lyreth says...

they both are animated well and are set in the same time period and feature the idea that there's power in numbers. and they both involve the underground powers that affect the city.

a471 a471 says...

The main story in both series is pieced together in a way that also relies on side characters. If you like the story telling mechanic in one, you'll probably like the other.

Rohjake Rohjake says...

The general feeling in Durarara!! and Eden of the East is very similar. In both, the main characters are surronded by plenty of mysteries that are slowly unraveled. Characters have modern technology and they make good use of it. So cellphones and the internet are used heavily throughout the series.

It is also noteworthy to mention that the character designs look quite alike. 

JonnySQ JonnySQ says...

Both Eden of the East and Durarara have this notion of single characters have major influence around them and with a single action can make a big effect on the whole city around them. With this showing how much trouble this can cause between conflicting interests and focus heavy on the power of instants communication technology.

SavannahPanda3 SavannahPanda3 says...

The story telling is similar, the narration, I love how everything connects wonderfully. Eden of the east and Durarara are both on my favorites list becuase of the wonderful story telling and they really remind me of each other even though they're not very similar story wise.

Future Diary

Future Diary

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

wanderer wanderer says...

Both titles have similar plot: few chosen people have some special phones, wich give them amazing abilities. And they have to fight each other somehow. They team up and decieve each other. Both titles have similar feeling in them.

Utawahaha Utawahaha says...

Both anime have a focus on High stakes games. Coincidentally, both have 12 main participants. Both have prominent male and female leads, and a romance subplot within. Both anime have colorful characters as the game's participants, in addition to side characters not participating in the game. Both anime share 12 participants that range from friend, foe and neutral towards the protagonists. Both anime can also be described as psychological. Finally, for what it's worth, the main tool used in the game for both anime are mobile phones. The feel is actually a little different between the two, but they share so many basic elements that if you like one, you're more likely than not to like the other.

TotalCode TotalCode says...

The teme is similair: the protagonists are forced inot a survival game, they're numbered, and genreally followed by death

Carnificus Carnificus says...

The basic premise of both of these series is very similar. The most apparent similarity one would notice is the emphasis on a survival game and changing the world. Both shows revolve around the idea of using special devices (most often this is seen with cellphones) in order to outplay the other people in the game, when only one person is left standing that last person is given the power to change the world. While Eden of the East is much more grounded in a realistic setting both series have a fair amont of mystery, comedy and romance. 

PorcupineHead PorcupineHead says...

They are both Hi-stake games with phones and 12 contestants...but that's where the simillarity ends.

Higashi no Eden is more like mysterious political thriller with extermely sympathic guy and nice girl in the lead while Mirai Nikki feels more  like another Higurashi and main characters are crybaby and psychopath

Kanariya Kanariya says...

People with mobile phones are participating in survival game where the winner can change the world.

Aitrus Aitrus says...

Both are games of survival involving cell phones and trying to outsmart the other players. While Mirai Nikki is definitely more on the mature side with killing and lots of adult themes Eden of the East is more political and a lot more mystery. Eden of the East is about a guy thrown into a game of survival while also trying to figure out who he is and making friends along the way. Mirai Nikki is about a kid thrown into a brutal survival game with a bunch of psychos and lots of messed up stuff happens.

LumpyKiyay LumpyKiyay says...

Both of these shows are about select people using their special phones to strategically seek out and eliminate all other players in order to gain a high status. Some have good intentions while others have foul plans. Both shows have great art, too.

Gavia Gavia says...

Both are high-stakes games where the very survival of the characters hangs on winning. Both of which contain the usage of extraordinary cell phones.

The shows grow similar as characters team-up, decieve and fight to win the game – leading to a dark tone and a mystery feel.

Madoka Madoka says...

Both series are a suvival games style in which each series players gain a phone with some "enhanced" feature, Eden's phones was to improve the country and each phones shows what others are doing, basically a competitive/eliminative game style whilst in Mirai Nikki the phones show other users actions whilst giving people insights to the future in different ways both which is to create a last man standing type scenario.

The series basically follow a lot of the same traits as one another and share a lot of similar plot developments. Though Mirai is more focused on murder and Eden is strategy they are quite a like.

ryanshowseason2 ryanshowseason2 says...

High stakes and phone related, Mirai is more supernaturally oriented though and Eden of the East is more of a Bourne conspiracy like take on the concept.

Mu254 Mu254 says...

While I prefered Eden of the East over Mirai Nikki, there is not denying that they are similar. They are both thrillers although the former is lightened with the use of humor. Both main characters have phones that give them some form of power over the events in the series [although the word power here refers to control and not supernatural abilities or the like]. They both have spects of romance though it is very differently themed in each series and also it is not one of the main themes. They each have a close companion and help from some other characters.

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Both shows progress through the show through a life or death survival game with the use of mobile phones

snivets snivets says...

Higashi no Eden and Zankyou no Terror both involve a high stakes game, played against a backdrop of political intrigue & characters with complex motives. Both also portray a corrupt government whose interests are at odds with what is right, just, and best for the people. If you enjoyed the intrigue of one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

Ryuju Ryuju says...

In both animes they are using terrorism to critique the Japanese government but Eden accomplishes the terrorism/social-critique angle much more effectively than ZnT.

theSentinel theSentinel says...

two super short animes, but with outstanding storylines.  If you love mysteries, and battles of intellectual prowess, tragedy, and pretty animations, these are great animes for you.

Marshota Marshota says...

Both deal with  "law enforcement thinka they are criminal terrorists" type of deals. Both have people who think outside the box to get their tasks finisheds and both have really amazing endings. (also both have explosion)

Schuichi Schuichi says...

I really have to agree, inteligence in these is surpassing another animes greatly. Both are short and  sometimes with some really breathtaking moments! Well.. but I have to ZnT is much sadder..

clarawhokcba clarawhokcba says...

They give off a similar feel - same levels of mystery, a similar essence of love, and trust is key in both.

sakara sakara says...

Both anime's have a strong underlying political message, on the surface they seem silly and childish at first but things quickly escalate and they make you think even after you've finished watching them. both animes are on my top 10 of all time and I would highly reccomend them to anyone.

Kitsunegari Kitsunegari says...

Both series have the same feeling and mysterious plot with a bunch of unsolved material, leaving the viewer wondering at times. They are both quite the mature shows with limited love along the storyline, yet funny and entertaining at times, good animation and music.

Plus: they both focus on events of terror in Japan!

FullmetalDragon FullmetalDragon says...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

NamikoYori NamikoYori says...

You should like both series: Terror in Resonance or Eden of the East, which are similar, becasue they both are about offenders in main role which meet girls who turns everything in different directions. Also both don't wanna harm mankind, but to show them something important, it also shows our society and government issues and other important problems.

catpaws catpaws says...

Though they differ in tone, they both contain themes of terrorism in the modern world, and how information spreads via social media.

EdtheRadical EdtheRadical says...

Both stories are somewhat of suspense /thriller/myster in a somewhat dystopian world. The stories revolve around learning about the background of our protagonists.

KarmicFairy KarmicFairy says...

They both deal with political intrigue/corruption and the threat of mass destruction. The plots are laid out well were it keeps you wondering what's really going on until the end when it all comes together.

sothis sothis says...

These two have a strong similarity in plot - both involve people getting a hold of enormous amounts of money and must decide how to use it. Both are a mystery of sorts (EotE moreso than C), and are engaging/interesting to watch. That being said, there's some clear differences as well, including far more action and bizarre visuals in C. Still, they're unique/similar enough to recommend with each other.

eaper eaper says...

These series have several things in common. First, they each have a similar art style in many ways. While Eden of the East is more refined, C is definitely reminiscent of it (and the OPs of each are extrememly similar). Second, as each story gets on, the scope of it gets larger and larger. Finally, each series gives the ability to shape the future in the hand of some very interesting characters. If you enjoy the battles between ideals for control of the future, these series go well together.

scizorg45 scizorg45 says...

Both series focus on money. A lot. The main character has to decide how to put this money to use, and seeing the effect of how others use their money. Of course there is enough conflict between different characters to keep you clutched to the screen.

Despon Despon says...

Both of these anime take place in a very current world. Both main characters have to find their place in a conspiricy that will have massive impacts on the world. More then anything both anime deal with the true value of money, but in diffrent ways.

Humice Humice says...

They are both about saving the world from destruction using money. They both involve strategic plans by the main characters.

ShizukaAyame ShizukaAyame says...

Both are money games where it's game over if you run out. The difference, really, is that C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control has fighting and weird looking creatures, while Eden of the East stays in the realm of humans.

bly19vy bly19vy says...

Yeah they are sorta alike. They're both high stake games, romance, and both short.Oh, and they both use a huge amount of money. BUT..... in Eden of the East they waste money, and in MOSAPC they try to earn money. In my opinion I liked Eden of the east because it was more funny.

neuver neuver says...

Both involve dabbling in the future of the world, with the MC the major force in saving it.  Both involved mystery, and dragged people into participating into abnormal situations.  But most of all, they were enjoyable, and though-provoking.

casandra29 casandra29 says...

Both these series are very alike. With C: Control the Money of Soul and Possibility as well as Eden of the East, they are set in Japan. In both series, there is a romance subplot, and there are many similarities in the main plots of these series as well. Both of these series are a kind of commentary on modern society and the way it works and in both anime, they explore different philosophical issues as it pertains to money and culture through the anime's characters and situations. If you like the story of one you will probably like the story of the other. Even though I'd say that C: Control the Money of Soul delivers a darker commentary and its characters are more jaded. If you like either C: Control the Money of Soul and Possibility or Eden of the East you will likely enjoy the other as well.

Though the plot of both these shows couldn't be further apart- the characters' personalities, relationships, and interactions are very reminiscent of each other.

First off any one who loved eather series based off of the deep underlying social and political issues will love the other. bolth series deal with political,social,and worldly issues.GIT has more of a futuristic feel to it, but the computer and net theme are also in eden. i believe that Akira's charicter is very similar to that of The Laughing Man.

Also if you loved how beautiful the animation was in one of these series you will surely like the other. bolth shows had very good levels of detail to everything.Though i like the charicter desighns better in GITS.

hyperactve hyperactve says...

If you like the political mumbo jumbo in GitS:SAC you can check out Eden of the East. And if you like Eden of the East, I recommend you to check out GitS.

In GitS:SAC the corrupt politicians do some really bad thing and then a hacker namely Laughing Man comes forward to unmask them and that leds Japan to frenzy.

In Eden of the East a business magnet gives twelve people a chance of a lifetime to make Japan a eden providing each of them with 10billion Yen and the political influence he gathered during his lifetime. I'm keeping the rest a secret.

Well, I think you are getting the hold of this.

Kaisaria Kaisaria says...

The two biggest reasons why I reccommend these anime as similar are because of two big reasons, one being that the plots feel very simiar when you watch them. The main protagonist addressing social/political issues in Japan in a covert manner. And second is the element of realistic sci-fi that is present in both anime. While it's more of a focus in Ghost in the Shell, Eden is not without it's science fiction elements.

If you like weird plans and happenstances and also odd cellphone conversations, both anime are for you. In both stories the characters act very mysteriously. The main character often doesn't know what's really going on, so the viewer is always in anticipation of the next plot twist.

lilien lilien says...

In both animes we follow a similar group of characters, whose actions get the attention of a mysterious and shadowy organization. Although the plot is different (Eden of the East is not about time travelling), both animes have eccentric main characters, good humor, a subtle and nicely paced romance, hackers, neets and the same feeling of suspense and mystery. Also, both animes are obsessed with cellphones.

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Although the plot is different each show revolves around mobile phones and have a group of very interesting characters. Both shows are also very mysterious and happen in modern day time.

They are both simular in theme. Although the plots a totally different, it has the same futuristic setting around japan. I love both of these animes equally and i think they are worth watching

But now, one of the Red King's vassals has been murdered, and a viral video shows the killer's confession at the scene. He is one Yashiro Isana, claiming to be the Colorless King; and he is now a wanted man - not only to the Red King's faction, but also the Blues charged with keeping the peace. He is even sought by Kuroh Yatogami, a knight of the former Colorless King sworn to slay any unworthy successor. Only, the subject of their struggle, "Shiro", is a nondescript young man living an unremarkable life in an island academy, and seems to have no recollection of killing anyone.

snivets snivets says...

K is puzzlingly unique, but Eden of the East comes to mind as a similarly exciting title. K has sets of rival gangs competing in a power grab but doesn't focus so much on the stakes of the game, while EotE has rival individuals competing with a much higher set of stakes. In both, the main male character has amnesia which is tied into the plot--if you liked either of these shows, I'd say give the other a go.

neuver neuver says...

As Person A above said, they both have amnesia about their pasts, but end up as major players to how events unfold. Although I have to say, the situation in 'K' could have become as dire as the ones promised in 'Eden of the East,' so the struggles of the characters are fairly significant.  Their personalities are fairly similar as well, in that they're a bit silly, but strong in a strange way, and  very serious about their goals (once they recall their memories, that is).

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Let's make Japan great again! Whether through magic or money, both of these anime are about larger forces working to bring peace and prosperity to the land of the rising sun. A student finds himself caught up in the schemes, and has to fight for his life, even if he doesn't know why.

In the streets of Tokyo, a new menace has surfaced: Shounen Bat, a young boy who wears golden roller skates and a baseball cap, and likes to whack people on the head with a golden baseball bat. These seemingly unconnected and random attacks soon become a police investigation... but after all is said and done, is there a pattern to this chaos?

They are both about how human mind works, as an individual or group, children or adults. They are both about society and very "up-to-date".

At first glance these two series may not have anything in common aside from its impending mystery. But they both dabble in issues of the human mind, albeit Paranoia Agent focuses more on individual human nature while Eden of the East, in collective human nature. As mentioned, both series deal with an on-going mystery which highly affects the characters as the enigma unfolds. So if you were hooked with Paranoia Agent for this reason, you'll surely like Eden of the East (or vice versa).
