SynopsisTen years ago, a child wished for the destruction of the world. Now, a group of people has the ability to grant their wishes depending on their power. They are called "Order User."
Before these great people who have the power of "Order", one person excels the most with the ability to rule and conquer the world and turn people into puppet when it is in his jurisdiction. This power belongs to Hoshimiya Eiji, who is also responsible for the destructive phenomena that happened exactly ten years ago.
BackgroundNo background information has been added to this title. Help improve our database by adding background information here.
Big Order is a manga by the same author as Mirai Nikki, and it's very easy to see the resemblances not only in the art style, but in the characters and story as well. It's kind of like a combination of Mirai Nikki, Code Geass, and Devil Survivor 2. This review contains several references to those shows, but there are no spoilers for them either. Currently only 11 chapters are translated.
Story - 8/10
I found the plot to be a little confusing at times, but I can still explain it pretty well.
The world has many people called "Orders" who each have a different power based on whatever wish they initially made to a mysterious being called "Daisy." These orders started appearing many years ago, but the most famous and infamous of them all is the protagonist, Hoshimiya Eiji, who is known for the "Destruction of the world." Ten years ago, Eiji made a wish which led to the world beginning to kind of fall apart. Countless people lost their lives, and he has since become hated and feared worldwide. But all Eiji really wants to do is protect his step-sister, Sena.
For a while, Eiji was just acting like a normal high school boy who skipped class often. One day a new girl named Kurenai Rin transfers into Eiji's class. For the first time in his life, Eiji thinks he is falling in love with someone. But, if you've read Mirai Nikki, you know there's no way the female lead of this manga that resembles it so much could be normal. But don't think Rin is a complete clone of Gasai Yuno either, she's actually quite different. Anyway, later that day, Rin shows up outside of Eiji apartment saying that she just moved in above him, but she lost her key. When he lets his guard down, Rin tries to kill Eiji. It turns out ten years ago, Eiji's wish kill both of Rin's parents. She has been searching for him for years, has finally found him, and now wants to kill him.
Rin attempts to kill Eiji, but he escapes. In the process, he also finds out that Rin is an Order with a power that allows her to regenerate her body making her invincible. Rin goes to the hospital Eiji's sister, Sena, is at and kidnaps her in order to draw Eiji out. She also has troops and a helicopter with a machine gun waiting at the hospital to kill him. In order to save Sena, Eiji finally uses his Order power which he has not used in ten years.
That's the one thing I really love about this manga. Eiji's power is one the most creative and unique powers I have seen in a long time. He has a power that marks his territory anywhere he goes, and only other Orders like Rin can see it. Anyone or anything that is inside his territory can be controlled by him through this strange creature that appears every time he uses his power. By using his power, he forces Rin to do several things: Not kill him or Sena and to stay within his territory at all times. As much as Rin hates this, it has now become physically impossible for her to kill him.
After this, the organization that Rin works for called Dazaifu led by Hiiragi and nine other Orders are revealed. Their plan is to help Eiji gain world domination, which ties in with his wish that he made to Daisy ten years ago. But that doesn't mean the organization, and Hiiragi specfically, is really on his side.
Character - 7/10
Now it's time for a Big Order/Mirai Nikki comparison
- Hoshimiya Eiji = Amano Yukiteru + balls
- Kurenai Rin = Gasai Yuno - the love + revenge against protagonist
- Daisy = Murmur + Deus ex Machina (there's not much explained yet about her and some mysterious other person/being though)
- Dazaifu + Eiji + Rin = 12 diary holders
- Hiiragi (this may be a little bit of a stretch) = Akise Aru
- Heavy Rockstar = Uryuu Minene
The character designs, especially for Eiji and Rin, are fairly similar to those from Mirai Nikki as well. Eiji really has a bit of Lelouch Lamperouge mixed into him as well. His desire to save Sena resembles Lelouch's desire to save Nunally, but Eiji is far less flamboyant and charismatic. Rin, unlike Yuno to Yuki, does not love Eiji. She only goes along with him because she cannot kill him due to his power, but that does not stop her from trying. She only protects him so because she will not let anyone other than her kill Eiji. Hiiragi is really a bit of a mix between Akise Aru and Yamato from Devil Survivor 2. His motives are unclear for keeping Sena hostage and helping to preserve her life from her life-threatening disease. Eiji does not trust him, and I can't blame him. Daisy is the mysterious being who resembles a girl kind of like C.C. (another Code Geass reference). not much is known about her of the other being with her except that she goes around the world granting people's wishes and turning them into Orders with special powers.
Art - 7/10
Being by the same mangaka as Mirai Nikki, the art obviously is extremely similar. Some fighting scenes are a little hard to follow, but the emotions portrayed by the characters in this dark manga are wonderfully portrayed. Not much to really say, if you like Mirai Nikki's art style, you'll like this and vice verse if you don't.
Enjyoment - 7/10
The story is a little confusing at times and the large character cast of the Dazaifu is somewhat confusing. Only around 5 or 6 of the ten Dazaifu Orders have even been showed so far aside from just giving their name and showing them alongside everyone else.
- Eiji's power is awesome and he's not a wimp (personally I like Yukiteru despite that fact, but just saying)
- Rin is not quite as good as Yuno so far, but is still a great female lead
- The art is good in darker scenes
- Character designs are good despite some not being that original
- While it has elements of Mirai Nikki and Code Geass in the story, it has Devil Survivor 2's confusing plot elements mixed in
- Fighting scenes are sometimes confusing
- Large character cast for only 11 chapters that has not been fleshed out yet
If you like any of the three anime/manga that I have compared Big Order to, then I suggest reading this. It may be a little confusing, but hopefully that will change as the story progresses. read more
Both are written by the same authors.
The female protagonists are both insane to begin with. The male protagonists however have different powers, Eiji has complete control over everything and everyone within a certain area which expands as he covers more ground, its name: World Domination(Because when he has explored the world he will control everything). Their personalities are similar in some senses but Eiji is still a lot less cowardly and as the story progresses he will probably become more determined just as Yukiteru did. The female protagonist is completely nuts just like Yuno, although in a completely reversed fashion.
-Same manga-ka, meaning greate similarities such as identical art.
-Both female protagonists, Yuno and Rin, are yanderes skilled at combat and serve as the male protagonist's companions. Personality-wise, they're incredibly similar, though there are slight differences in their interests. You'll see.
-The concept in both mangas is very much similar to a game, being administrated by a certain force that grants its "participants" power (Deus Ex in Mirai Nikki, Daisy in Big Order).
-Eiji > Yukiteru. The protagonist in Big Order is not a wimp. He has the power to fend off for himself and does not depend so heavily on others, unlike Yukiteru.
Both series are from the same author, while MN is completed, Big Order is still ongoing up to chapter 3. The stories are similar with people get "special power" from "God" and also the characters. Eiji from Big Order has similar outlook with Yukiteru, however, he is much better in personality. Rin is exactly the 2nd Yuno, very cute but insane.
Both by the same author, Big Order is shaping up to be a spiritual successor of sorts, with a leading duo of an withdrawn guy (although Eiji from Big Order seems a lot more badass) and a psycho girl, and themed powers (precognition in Mirai Nikki, wishes in Big Order).
Even the first few chapter in both manga series are likely to remind you of each others' series respectively. And of course, that's normal since the same person worked on both the stories and artwork.
Both Yuno Gasai (from Mirai Nikki) and Rin (from Big Order) also have similarities in their appearances as well as their yandere like personalities. The male protagonist in both manga also has their lives changed forever after meeting the main female protagonists.
Both manga contains action and super power themes as power is what dominates the characters.
Both manga has similar themes and concepts and in fact, some of the other supporting characters that are present makes the stories even more complicated.
Both series has a mystery like atmosphere and also has thriller like endings to keep readers at their seats.
the same author with mirai nikki . similiar main character , and also a psychotic killer girl . you will love this :D
The protagonists are very much similar. The reason why is different, but both the females try to protect the males. Both male protagonists are thrown into a situation where their lives are threatened constantly. To top it off, the art, writing, and plot styles are very similar.(They are made by the same author)
Both are written by the same authors. Big Order is a "what if" prologue of Mirai Nikki, and Mirai Nikki: Paradox is a "what if" scenario of Mirai Nikki. Big Order differs from Mirai Nikki in that it takes the main event from Mirai Nikki into a new concept where as Mirai Nikki: Paradox continues the story
- have characters who can control others with vocal commands
- have a central plot of the MC and MC's allies creating a nation and conquering others
- Both MC's are aware of the potential misuse of their powers/have accidentally misused their powers
- lots of grey and grey morality
Tokyo ESP is goofier but they both showcase a character with powers in a place where such a group is trying to overtake the regular world.
forced to be villain and leader of "Evil Organizations" when all they wanted to be were heroes
in big order you might think otherwise due to the description but once you read you may agree
