It's always a pleasant surprise to come across an anime that isn't afraid to present itself in a way different than most others. More often than not an anime's narrative is linear, with a straightforward progression that is simple for mostly anyone to comprehend.

"Serves you right."

Mekakucity Actors is a fairly straightforward story depicted in a far too contrived, convoluted and pretentious way.
I approached this anime as a supporter of some of the most renown Shaft productions. I love their artistry in portraying surreal worlds and concepts through the use of captivating art and unusual views. But this time, I think Shinbou went overboard and, as a neophyte of the Kagerou Project, I found myself wrapping my head around trying to grasp what the anime was aiming to convey.

Recommendations

Clean unique worlds from both series where plots have to be grasped to get a clear understanding. The artful animation and expresison of the characters is something to be galvanised with. Environments appeared sophisticated in both arrangements and structure that will give you an out of this world experience.
same feel for both shows, both deal with the supernatural, both are mystery too, both focused on one city, also weird red eyes
