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. While this method does result in well-written and engaging stories, it can take an extra level of skill to alter the way a narrative is told and pull it off correctly without any hiccups. Mekakucity Actors isn't interested in being your average, everyday anime; it's one of the few that seeks to challenge the conventions of storytelling. To give a bit read more

Upon skimming over the top 2 reviews for Mekakucity Actors, I went into this anime with rather mediocre expectations, considering as well that the average rating was below an 8. I had not heard or read anything about it otherwise.

Usually the mark of a mediocre anime sports somewhat unnatural or clumsy dialogue, and mundane art or animation. As such, I expected to encounter either. To my pleasant surprise, I immediately sensed a heavy dose of SHAFT animation, so I knew that I would at least enjoy the animation to some extent. The dialogue wasn't horrible either. I pushed on expecting to be disappointed by read more

(This is my first review so be gentle)
Mekakucity Actors was definitely among the most anticipated anime this spring season gone past. With an already well-established fanbase, an intriguing premises, and animation done by none other than SHAFT (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the Monogatari Series), the series garnered a lot of attention from the anime community. Not only that, but the creator of the Kagerou Project (the vocaloid song series from which this anime is based), Jin, also had input into sculpting the series. However, after finishing the final episode, I can summarize my feelings towards the series as a whole with one word: disappointing.

If you’re familiar with shaft anime, Mekakucity fits into their portfolio perfectly, but that’s not to say the anime is perfect. If you’re unfamiliar with Shaft anime, it’s an experience very different to any other anime producer, and it’s very important to bear that in mind. I’m focusing on some of the flaws the show has in this review, but I enjoyed the show as much as I did some of the Monogatari series, and I’m very pleased to be able to say that. Regardless of your opinion on the director, Akiyuki Shinbou’s, polarising style, he has stayed true to it and to the source read more

Supernatural abilities and a bunch of equally important characters who are more connected than it seems at first glance.

Anime: Bakemonogatari
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.

Anime: Darker than Black: Kuro no Keiyakusha
Different mood but shares similar qualities, both series adapts a small cast of main characters gifted with supernatural abilities. With those abilities also come with responsibility as they play their roles in their perspective stories. And speaking of stories, there are mysteries relating to the origins, context, and characters. There is more comedy in Mekakucity Actors while Darker than Black has a more serious nature. Nonetheless, I recommend both series for anyone interested in supernatural phenomenons.

Anime: Gatchaman Crowds
Taking place in a local city, both series involve a group of characters with superpower abilities. These characters become intertwined in a story that tells of their present lives (with some flashbacks and characterization). Both series provoke humor with its dialogues, gags, and mysteries. For Gatchaman Crowds, the story revolves more around fighting for justice while Mekakucity Actors tells the interpersonal stories for its characters. I recommend both series for people interested in supernatural stories with slight tastes of mystery and humor.

If your ready for another anime to screw with your brain or your the type who wants to understand everything about an anime and understand the entire series, then this is a great anime to watch. My head was hurting after watching both of these anime...

Anime: Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Without getting into spoilers, let's say they have similar tropes. The opening scene of MCA is also reminiscent of the opening scene of Madoka.
