*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.

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

I wanted to like this show. Hand to God, really. It was probably one of the most visually unique programs I'd found in recent memory, and its commitment to the visual theme of a circus reminded me of Soul Eater's gothic design motifs in a refreshingly good way.

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 have a white haired protagonist (with a black haired "friend"),involved with some mysterious power and organization fighting the evil.
