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

I came in this anime with low expectations, and I'm glad I did, otherwise I would have been so upset with the experience. But it wasn't all that bad, there were some good things that came along the way

Story: 5. It was supposed to be a 4 but since the plot was rather unique, I decided to add a point. I got the grasp of the entire story when I finished despite it being so messy , but in the end it's just super shallow. I didn't even get the whole of the story or the ultimate objective of the "Mekakushidan". They were trying 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

As expected of a Shaft production, the artwork for this show was phenomenal. I just wish that the plot wasn't so confusing. I feel that if they lengthened the show, they could have made the plot more linear and cohesive, instead of the confusing jumble that it was. The story had so much potential, so I was disappointed by how the confusion got in the way of what it could have become. There was just too much information in too short amount of time. Otherwise, if they ever make a second season I would be more than excited to watch it.

Recommendations

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