With meticulous detail he ponders how and when the event will take place. Should he pick a stranger or someone close to him? A yakuza to help society, a celebrity, someone old or young? And above all else, what will people think of him when he does it?

Personally I enjoyed Goth more than His Murder Scheme but both deal with the perverse appeal of killing and ask you to understand the killer and his frame of mind.

Omurqi Omurqi says...

Both these short manga are about the same thing, killing and a killers frame of mind. Kare no Satsujin Keikaku gives off a more realistic, everyday vibe in order to make it disturbing and Goth is very "dark and gritty", but if you liked one of these, it's definitely worth checking out the other.

NicoNicoDesu NicoNicoDesu says...

Both of these manga are short stories murder and death. "Goth" is more of a yandere-romance manga, but "Kare no Satsujin Keikaku"'s nonchalant way of addressing homicide makes it more disturbing. Both are worth a read if you can handle the themes.

While not terribly similar in plot, both Goth and Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan are about a boy-girl teenage pair with some screws loose. They have the same mood, and will definitely appeal to the same audience.

casandra29 casandra29 says...

both these manga have a similar set up and they both have dark psychological elements to them. Furthermore the male lead in both these manga are kind of similar in that they are obsessive with investigating death and enjoy disturbing things and are surprisingly smart and gallant in their own twisted way.

ChalamiuS ChalamiuS says...

Both of these manga have main characters with a bit morbid interest in death and other distrubing things. Both of the main male characters are also of the investigative type which is the main driving force behind both stories.

Both stories focus on dark and horrorific imagery with gruesome situation and scenarios that will leave you re-reading each page trying to soak in every word and image.

Lots of horror and blood etc. Both are a bad idea to read if you're squeamish. A very and idea.

Goth and Anne Freaks each have a guy/girl duo that would have been better off not being made. Themes of death, murder, and twisted justice fill their pages. If you enjoyed one- see how the other puts a different spin on the similar themes.

sothis sothis says...

Anne Freaks and Goth involve (amongst other characters in AF) a boy/girl duo with sinister, disturbing tendencies and are drawn together by danger. If you liked one, definitely give the other a try.

I don't know why exactly, but the darkness in Goth reminded me of the dark and sinister feeling of Higanjima. Though Goth is about two death-obsessed teenagers who solve crimes out of sheer curiosity and "fun" and Higanjima is about vampires, both bring darkness and evil to the table. If you like Goth, maybe you'll like Higanjima as well and vice versa.

Although Sabrina is only a few pages long, it has a strong horror feel to it. It's creepiness and gore is similar to some of the stories in Goth's chapters. If you liked one, you'd probably enjoy the other.

While Covered in Cinders is fairly short, it is a great example of a horror story with a disgusting twist near the end. This is very similar to several of the short stories featured in Goth. If you liked one, you'd probably enjoy the other.

Nijigahara Holograph

Nijigahara Holograph

Even as butterflies ominously proliferate in town, the rumor of a mysterious creature lurking in the tunnel behind the school spreads among the children. When the body of Arié Kimura's mother is found by this tunnel's entrance, next to apparently human traces, the legend seems to be confirmed. Is the end of the world coming? In order to appease the wrath of the beast, the children decide to offer it a sacrifice: The unfortunate Arié, whom they believe to be the cause of the curse, is shoved into a well that leads to the Nijigahara tunnel — an act that in turns pushes Komatsuzaki, the budding thug who has carried a torch for Arié for a while already, entirely over the edge.

If you liked Nijigahara Holograph or Goth you probably would enjoy the other as well because both are the depressing type of dark manga. In both the main characters have major psychological issues.

MangaBean MangaBean says...

Both have a similar vibe and have protagonists who are morally grey and have a fascination with murder.

Both protagonists are planning to kill their... I don't know if you'd call them their 'love interest'... maybe their 'partner in crime works' more.

Both feature lots of serial killers with different modus operandi and motivations.
