A bunch of highschool kids have to kill someone to "succeed" while following certain rules.
In Dangan Ronpa, they're stuck in a school and they're only chance of escaping is to kill someone without being caught, while in Akuma no Riddle the whole class as the goal of killing a fellow classmate so they can be granted anything they want.
Both Anime series have the same concept about a headmaster's gathering students to kill
But unlike Akuma's students, Danganronpa's students are regular students and don't know how to kill.
Both involve a class against one another, only in one its 11 assassins vs 1 girl and her protector, while in the other it's a free for all.
There is a very similar feeling in both. They both involve a bunch of people with many different personalities whose main focus seems to being killing each other while being observed by someone.
Both are battle royal anime, class full of people trying to kill someone. Both have character with split personalities.
Wish it was similar in animation as Danganronpa but sadly it isn't. has similar character roles and emotion that gives you a psychotic feeling, a cheery feeling and a gory feeling. both have similar plot where you got to kill to survive (I think) and to find the odd person but for Donganronpa you find out who's guilty and sentence them to death. only Akuma no Riddle have the genre of yuri.
Survival genres. We see them in almost every anime. Akuma no Riddle is similar to Mirai Nikki in the sense that in order to survive or win, you have to defeat your enemies. Not only that, both anime have a darker story to them and especially action scenes.
However, the difference between Mirai Nikki & Akuma no Riddle is the characters. All of the cast members are female in Akuma no Riddle, while Mirai Nikki has both male and female participants.
Both include fighting among classmates and a dark tone
