Drahken Drahken says...

Both of these series are dark tales of a boy and a ghost-girl. In addition to the plot similarities (a guy in school encounters a ghost girl which only he can see), both series have a similarly dark atmosphere.

Ogux Ogux says...

Dark, ghostly, gloomy.. if you like these themes, "Another" and "Tasogare Otome x Amnesia" are just for you (^.^)

FableStory FableStory says...

26 years ago, in a third-year classroom of a middle school, there was a student named Misaki. As an honors student who was also good at sports, the charming girl was popular with her classmates. When she suddenly died, her classmates decided to carry on as if she was still alive until graduation. Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Kouichi Sakakibara transfers to that classroom, and he grows suspicious of the fearful atmosphere in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful, aloof girl named Misaki Mei who wears an eyepatch and is always alone drawing pictures.

Old curses and mysteries combine for a creepy effect in both. Another is the darker of the two though, as comedy and romance lighten up the storyline of x AmnesiIa in stark contrast to the horror aspect of Another.

Tasogare Otome X Amnesia isn't as gruesome and horror filled as Another but the story line is equally similar

Drahken Drahken says...

In each of these mangas there is a guy who encounters a strange girl in his class, a girl which only he can see. A girl who seems to be a ghost. Ushiro no Shindere-san is a lighter, more comedic take on the general plot, while Another takes a darker, more tragic view.
