Karneval, I had high hopes seeing the logo and art style of the promotional banners, an interesting mix of cheery and gothic. I was sad that the art didn't continue very much into the actual show further than the costuming of the circus agents. The overall feel felt like a brighter version of D.Gray Man. The story was interesting but could have used a little more thought and the characters were decent, (despite Nai's lack of a back bone driving me nuts) but the downfall was the work put into the dub.

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.
-Both involve a guy protecting the main character
-Both give off same aura and feeling into the anime
-Both anime similar setting time of era
-Both anime involves supernatural
-Both anime involves main character has powers but they don't know
-Both anime has action
-Both are dark at times yet funny
-Both really good
