*Decided to re-write my review*

Karneval- An anime with a strong plot, great characters, and amazing artwork.

At first glance, Karneval looks like nothing more than a bishie parade. Which is sorta true, beautiful people, beautiful people everywhere, but, if that is all you look at, and don't at least give Karneval a try, there is something wrong with you.

Karneval isn't that well known, which is a shame. It really is a good story. At least, the manga. Trying to smash great character development and a somewhat confusing plot into 13 episodes wasn't a great idea.

Art and Animation
Karneval's art is just superb. If I could give it read more

The show must go on! No literally, the show should really keep going on. I only recently finished it and I'm already aching for more episodes.

At first, what may appeal to you and make you want to watch the show is the art. After all, it's very colorful, bright, and overall beautiful. It's enticing to say the least, and the first thing that hits you is probably how beautifully animated and drawn it is.

After the outstanding art settles in, the characters and plot may seem lacking. It centers around Nai and Gareki; a dynamic duo who met by chance and chance alone. They're soon read more

Recommendations

Both series feature two protagonists—one white-haired, the other black-haired—in a sort of guarded-guardian relationship. As well, both white-haired protagonists have more to them than meets the eye. The characters of Karneval and K [Project] interact within alternate realities wherein mystical occurrences are possible.

The two series share the quality of having fantastical aspects in play throughout their progressions. Characters' powers are unique, and there's no shortage of futuristic gadgets and sci-fi elements. In conjunction with this environment are paramount forces and organizations that engage in power struggles as connections between characters are gradually revealed.
Similarities:
Both involve people with special abilities and secret organizations going after evil elements. Both have characters with very optimistic and artistic personalities. Both have the same action genre and the art of both anime are a bit too fancy.

Dissimilarities:
One has an extra supernatural, comedy genre and a yaoi element in it, while the other has sci-fi and school as its extra genre. One has an extra ecchi element, while one doesn't. The MC in one anime is boy who's more like a damsel-in-distress, while the other anime also stars a boy but he however, can kick ass.
