Both of these series involve orphans living in a walled-off area to protect them from monsters in a post-apocalyptic world.

The orphanages also harbour some dark secrets that the children eventually find out about.

Teoca317 Teoca317 says...

Both anime are similar in the horror and mystery themes. The Promised Neverland and Heavenly Delusion have their cast in a safe and isolated area that juxtaposes the dangers of the outside world. Throughout the story, the characters slowly discover the truth and try to act to save themselves. Both anime also have orphaned child protagonists. I think that if you like one, you'll like the other.

Mix of children, horror, secrets, and a dark mysterious world. While the children were raised to believe they had to live in a bubble, they slowly start to question the world around them, and learn its dark secrets.

Very similar concepts, both involve children in grotesque ways and have similiar vibes and many other similarities which you have to see for yourselves...

Both have a male+female pair exploring a dangerous area they don't know much about replete with bizarre deadly monsters and looking for something that may or may not exist. Both similarly combine cutesy moments with brutal/messed up situations throughout.

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

Both with a setting of exploring the world with unknown and weird creatures. They need to fight and trying to achieve their dreams. Both are with a sense of desperate with small hope and optimism.

AceII AceII says...

I feel like they both hold good mystery and suspense to keep you guessing whats gonna happen to the characters in the next episode I odn't know about made in the abyss S2 but everything else YES.

Alfie02 Alfie02 says...

Very similiar concept of children doing dangerous stuff... A lot of gore in both and many other similarities which you have to see for yourself

Both are post-apocalyptic thrillers that depict a group of kids/teenagers with supernatural abilities who lead a seemingly serene life in a sheltered community but then gradually start to discover the dark secrets behind their existence and the world on the outside. Similar mysterious atmosphere.

Kari5 Kari5 says...

Getting very similar vibes from both of these shows. They are both about a group of young people living in a word "created" by adults and they slowly start to ask questions and learn about the dark true surrounding them.

Nanou007 Nanou007 says...

These two shows feel like they were cut from the same cloth. They give the exact same feeling but because from the new world is 26 episodes, it completes itself

While Hell's Paradise has a higher focus on violence, both of these series are about a strange world/place and a group of main characters traveling together trying to find something. The worlds themselves are full of mystery to the viewers. Plus, weird monsters!

"Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" and "Heavenly Delusion" are both anime series that fall into the horror and supernatural genres, but they have distinct differences as well. Let's explore some of the similarities and differences between the two:

Similarities:

1. Horror Themes: Both "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" and "Heavenly Delusion" contain elements of horror. They explore dark and disturbing themes, often featuring violence, gore, and supernatural elements. This makes them suitable for viewers who enjoy the horror genre.

2. Post-Apocalyptic Settings: Both series are set in post-apocalyptic worlds, where society has collapsed, and chaos reigns. This setting adds a dystopian and gritty atmosphere to the stories.

3. Violence and Action: As implied by the title "Violence Jack," both series feature intense and graphic violence, as well as action sequences. Fans of brutal combat and gore may find elements to enjoy in both.

Differences:

1. Tone and Atmosphere: "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" is known for its extremely grim and violent tone, often delving into extreme brutality and chaos. "Heavenly Delusion," on the other hand, might have horror elements but is generally considered to have a more balanced and nuanced approach, including character development and psychological aspects.

2. Story and Plot: "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" is more episodic in nature, with loosely connected stories and a central anti-hero protagonist. "Heavenly Delusion," on the other hand, typically has a more structured and continuous plot that revolves around its characters' experiences and challenges in the post-apocalyptic world.

3. Themes: "Heavenly Delusion" tends to explore themes of survival, human nature, and personal relationships in a world gone awry. It may incorporate elements of mystery and psychological horror. "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" often focuses on the brutality and chaos of the post-apocalyptic world, emphasizing gore and shock value.

4. Audience: Due to its extreme violence and content, "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" is generally intended for a more mature and niche audience who can handle its graphic nature. "Heavenly Delusion" may have broader appeal, as it incorporates a variety of themes and character development, making it potentially more accessible to a wider range of viewers.

In summary, while both "Violence Jack: Hell's Wind" and "Heavenly Delusion" share some similarities in terms of their horror and post-apocalyptic settings, they differ significantly in terms of tone, storytelling approach, themes, and intended audience. Viewers looking for a more brutal and shock-oriented experience may prefer "Violence Jack," while those seeking a more complex and nuanced narrative might lean toward "Heavenly Delusion."
