Synopsis

Strange suicides have been taking place in New York. One day, four girls from the same high school wake up in the morning feeling tired and dizzy and not being able to remember anything about the previous night. In school, they find out that one of their classmates has committed suicide. School is canceled for the rest of the day, but instead of going home, the girls are drawn to a park by butterflies only they can see. Suddenly a man and a woman approach the girls, telling them that they all died the previous night.

Beautifully animated and strongly character driven.

PLOT: It's very difficult to write about Red Garden as its got so many elements. Part high school drama, part supernatural thriller and part musical, it deals with four very different young women who find themselves with superpowers, forced to work together to survive, thrown into a centuries old conflict and dead into the bargain! However for the majority of the time there isn't much action, Red Garden takes its time fleshing out the four girls, watching them attempt to adjust to their new predicament and at the same time solve their own private problems with their families/friends/love lives etc. read more

Red Garden is a show full of weird little quirks, but there's nothing particularly quirky about its premise: four girls are forced to fight supernatural forces. Each evening, at any time before midnight, a team of female students from a prestigious school in New York may be summoned by a mysterious woman named Lula to engage in a deathmatch against fast, vicious, zombie-like monsters. Surrender and nonparticipation are not valid options. The girls know nothing about why they've been chosen or who they're really working for, but they hope to find out before it's too late.

Studio Gonzo's artistic work here is wholly different from the read more

Murder, suicide, butterflies,Roosevelt Island and young undead girls. Welcome to Red Garden.

Red garden is a creepy horror-story starring four girls, Kate, Rachel, Claire and Rose who all died at the same place. Even thought they are dead they have been granted a life by a woman in exchange for them to at anytime fight all kinds of unnatural beings. Along with trying to live a normal life they also is trying to figure out what happened to them that night where their normal lives ended. This is just the beginning but the 4 first episodes gives hints on that there will be many plot-twists to read more

It's funny that when I first started watching I thought the characters looked ridiculous and now I find it much more 'natural' than purple-haired, bug eyed smurf-sized lolitas. Maybe it's the fantastic characterization and development that has made me warm to them. Either way the glamorous look Red Garden is given really enriches my understanding of the very unglamorous conflicts, emotions and changes the characters endure. At times I feel that they could've made it just a little bit more filthy. In fact I get thirsty during the fight scenes for some unnerving material. The first couple of episodes where Rachel's nail is cracked, really read more

Both shows have a primarily female cast. The main characters are forced (more-so in Red Garden) to fight beasts/witches, and if they give up they die. Characters don't fully understand the situation they're in for most of the series. They're both pretty dark series, and there are definitely some more similarities.

TMGK and Red Garden are both series about a happy go lucky group of high schoolers who find themselves in an unusual situation and become unlikely friends (teammates?). They both have creepy settings and both episodic and series long stories. Although I wasn't a fan of Red Garden, I think others who enjoyed TMGK may enjoy the dead girls of Red Garden as well!

Gantz and Red Garden have very similar plots albeit a little more different, They both feature peope who have died and are given another chance to live if they defeat certain monsters. However, if they die, they die forever. 
reportRecommended by JackCox
Both shows are horror and highly suspenseful. Mysterious "ghouls" appear in both that crave killing.  
reportRecommended by femalegoblin
Both have a strong point in showing the relationships between protagonists and the others. Almost all their actions in daily life it seems natural and credible.

Girls are well-designed. They having clearly characters and also are drew as a cute, but not typical beauty. 
reportRecommended by Rogi5
main characters are pushed into violence and horror as other parties use these characters for their own interests
