one guy goes into a whole world made up of money. of course, money can bring out the worst of people, so this guy has to do something about it.
their both realistic in some sort of way in regards of how people will act with money around them.
Deal with some of our contemporary issues. While Eden of the East has a lighthearted comedic feel to it, C has a more serious, solemn tone.
In both anime, their premises are based on some sort of competition between chosen individuals, in a tournament that somehow involves money.
Both are short series dealing with economics and "saving" Japan to some degree. Both main male characters are involved in a "game" that eventually affects those around them. Their futures are dependent upon these games. Money is power and success - and when you run out of it, your game is over.
- A group of people get a lot of money, giving the future as collateral, in [c] are the future of themselves and, in Eden , it is the future of Japan.
- By losing the lot, they could lose their lives , literally or metaphorically .
-They have a struggle for power and of course , greed . Since their objectives are not the same.
Both series heavily deal with money and how its use can cause a ripple effect into everyday lives.
Both shows have a main character with similar ideals, though the shows make them play out in different ways.
Both series deal with political intrigue on some level without a clear distinction of what is right and wrong.
the settings of both series are undeniably similar. in both series there is some game involved to which the main character is forced into or exposed to, an alternative game or world that manages to influence society in the "normal" world. In Higashi no Eden's case it is the game and selecao system created by Mr.Outside and in C:'s case that is the eastern financial district.
both anime series discuss the importance of money. Although the subject is discussed more directly in C, the outlook on it is quite similar; the connection between the government, society and individuals and money and its influence on them is a rare topic in anime series which is why those who enjoyed Higashi no Eden's outlook on the subject may enjoy C as well. it is important to note the in both cases the subject is not the main focus and acts only as a motive or cause for the main plot, meaning that the series' main focus is an occurrence or conflict caused by money.
3) PERSONAL OPINION
whilst this review made both series sound obnoxiously serious and boring, i can assure you that they're not. although both discuss serious topics they both delver it in a way which is not too heavy on the viewer which is why i think they are so similar. They're both the same length (11 episodes).  read more
Although the content is different, both series share a strong similarity. The main characters are offered a way to change their life, possibly in a better way. After being thrown into an alter world in which they battle for power, they form teams in order to survive. In C the characters battle for more money ,while in Accel World they battle for burst points. Each battle won enables them to an upgrade of sorts, in C they upgrade to better ATM cards and in Accel World they level up. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
Both anime has the same concept of escaping the reality to another imaginary world. In Accel World, the citizens of imaginary world become avatars, and they must fight each other to gain Burst Points (just like gaining money on C).
The main character in both series gains access to a different world. In this world he fights for advantages in the real life. Both main characters stop fighting for the real life advantages and instead focus on figuring out the secret behind this new world.
C is considerably more serious than Accel World. Accel world is more or less a romance comedy with a VR twist. C, however, only has a tiny bit of romance and the main focus is on the plot rather than the characters.
•both contain a ordinary boy who was invited to join 'a different world' which is completely separate to the real world, but the 'world' they were thrown into affects and determines the 'you' in the real world.
•both protagonists have no idea what was to happen, and they find themselves forced to fight in the 'different world' to maintain there life back in the real world.
•both animes show how much greed/determination/selfishness can lead to bad results.
•both anime supporting casts differ completely around the main protagonist, which one is situated in a school, and the other in a university.
•both contain a romance/action/angst
•they are closely similar in which they are thrown into a 'different reality/world' and are forced to fight to benefit themselves in the real world, otherwise its game over in different senses.  read more
Anti-social in the real world but a pro in the virtual realm, both series' main male protagonist makes a name of themselves in their perspective series. Both series adapts sci-fiction themes with a fantasy world setting. And in that world, there are wonders that defies the laws of nature. Although the main male protagonists' personalities contrasts a bit from each other, their spirit of fighting have a similar taste. They are also joined by companions including a main female protagonist with elite skills of her own. I recommend both series for fans of adventure and action packed drama.
Both the main characters are confused about what they want with their new powers, and they didnt really want it in the first place. Both the main source of power for the main character is a female which they kinda fall in love with, and its their best weapon ( Msyu and Inori). Both main characters are confused whether to follow a leader or find a new way. (Gai and Mikuni)
Well...if you like one, then you'd like the other. Both animes gave the same feeling. Storywise, C is better; but if it's some wicked music you want, then Guilty Crown. Art style is sort of similar, even the main characters look alike. Boy leading his normal life unwillingly gets sucked into something...BIG but he still goes through with it because it could save his country.
Similar Art Style, similar Story, Similar Character, main character in both show didn't want use their power to fight, the heroin in both show changed the main character's lfe and protected them, similar shit ending......
Both start with an interesting premise and have great visuals. But imo, both of them fall flat with unmemorable characters and a plot that doesn't seem to understand the rules of story progression that well.
Conflict on how the society functions. Both main characters using the special powers they received to help/fix the problem in order for a better future. Mainly both stories follow through the saying, "The right to use my friends as a weapon, that is the sinful crown I shall adorn." Shu Ouma (Gulity Crown)
Both series contain supernatural themes with the main protagonist accompanied by a girl with gifts.
Both series contain the theme of economics.
Both series has comedy, drama, and also emotional moments.
Shows that focus on various problem in the discipline of economics.
C looks at some extreme cases where the entire world economy could collapse, whereas Spice & Wolf's entire show is based on market interactions, because our MC is a merchant.
A word of warning though. Don't take the ideas in C too seriously, especially if you are an econ major.
How the main character express their feeling towards others are similar. When they first enter the new world, their purpose is to win and, nothing stood in their way in till they learn the value of life. In C when some loses they lose a part of their future in RL, in S.O.A, they die in RL. So both come to a conclusion that they must find a way to win without causalities
Similar with the alternate / separate worlds and with the characters involved in the secondary world being coerced or forced into it. While inter-character conflict is the main focus from episode to episode, the over-arching theme is one of surviving within and fighting against the reality that they have found themselves a part of.
Both protagonists are normal students thrust into another world with their lives on the line. The characters in Sword Art Online are trapped within the game, while those in C can freely transfer from the normal world to the Financial District. Moreover, the story focuses on fantasy, action, and romance as both protagonists have a female partner alongside them.
Both are AMAZING !!!! to be honest C: seems from the beginning a little bit Boring (1---->3ep) you dont even get it but then things change, this anime is dedicated to a genius ,SAO & C: are Similiar not about the world or romance in fact its about surviving its Awesome !!! as well for SAO(one is better than ...) on the other hand lets talk about the things arent similar about those animes :
1. C: (Its a virtual world but still not a game how ??? every moment he wins a duel he's money account increases on the other side if he loses every bit of money he won in this virtual world will disappear in the real world (Action/+8) Awesome
2.SAO: MMO RPG Game Amazing anime with such a wonderful story-line Action/Magic/Game/Survival/Romance(-)Thats my opp) Wonderful unfortunetly Second Season is cool still not like the first one .Rock N Roll (Dudera) read more
So after letting the show continue for a couple more episodes past the pilot episode i would have to say that these shows are similar.
While both animes deal with granting the master desires each anime deals with a different desire. In Selector Infected the show deals with winning battles to grant ones wish. While in C it deals with winning battles to gain money. Along with the chances of getting your desire granted both animes have consequences if you lose to many times. In both the animes it seems that the consequences both have a similar effect.
Also, in both animes they have an "avatar" that they do battle with in order for the chance of winning. Likewise in both animes when they are outside of the battle zone they can each talk to their avatars that are inside the cards.
As Selector Infected continues there may be more similarities between the two animes, but this is it for now. Although it is just a speculation i feel that they might have similar endings. read more
Both anime feature battles that take place in an "alternate reality" that only a select few know about.
People are required to partake and win battles for prizes and to "stay in the game".
In C, if you lose and can no longer stay in the game, it is likely that you will die or something so bad will happen that you'll want to commit suicide. You don't lose your memories related to what happened, which in turn makes it all the more traumatic for losers.
In Selector, you lose your memories related to the game. In addition to that, the wish of the selector becomes tainted into usually the opposite of what they want, which is similarly traumatic and near suicide-inducing as what happens to people who lose in C.
Within both anime, features a relationship between a "player" and a "familiar" that the player owns/plays with/talks to.
It just so happens that both anime feature tiny girls that appear to move in cards. read more
Both animes a=have similar elements and a similar feel to them.
They are basically about the protagonist fighting with an partner (avatar/asset) that lives in a card for something that they really want in another dimension.
Their wins and losses affect the real world and we learn that losses have some terrible consequences. As the stories progress, they become darker.
Wixoss and [C] both share a gamble of wishes and dreams: wishes that needed to come true and dreams that needed to be realized for the winner. Losing the game means the consequences of losing one's wishes and dreams, and more of what one could have hoped or thought for.
although the way the game is set up, they are still both about a survival compitition for dominance... while watching mirai nikki i got this feeling that it was reminding me of something and i finally realised it was C... both amazing animes
After watching half way through this show I got a slight feeling that I had been here before and then it hit me, Mirai Nikki is just like C , both are strong psychological thrillers that personally left me wanting know what would happen next each and every episode and both kept me on edge wondering who would betray the main characters next and who could be trusted. In all honesty if you could keep up with intellectual demand of Mirai Nikki then you should be fine with C and maybe even seeing the twists before they happen. So if you liked Mirai Nikki then give C a go and vice versa.  read more
Assets are like Servants and the people in the Financial district (Entre's) are like Masters. Both anime's have people who has servants/assets who fight for them and are summoned when needed to. Similarly both have the main character showing compassion and care towards their servant/asset and trying to help them in fights/duels.
Both young male main characters with a female partner (asset) and they fight to protect those close to them and whats important. They struggle through their battles but show great potential and determination.
Main characters are very similar, especially in their initial indecisiveness and the development of their relationship with the female lead. Overall, Assets = Servants, Entres = Masters, Holy Grail War battles = Financial District deals. The set-up is also very similar with the relationship between the protagonist and the antagonist with the main villain or anti-hero giving the hero his reason to fight. Also, both series eschew black-and-white morality for a more complicated battle between parties who each have reasonable and nuanced motivations and values.
The life of a normal high school student is thrown upside down when he is given a girl of some sort to fight for him against people who have other people to fight for them. In C if he loses the fight he loses money and in Fate/stay night if he loses the fight he loses his life.
Nakamura Kenji as director and Iwasaki Taku as OST-composer.
Similar genre type.
Both possess at the same time an "eye-candy" animation and interesting story, something very rare in now-days anime productions!
Both these shows are very secretive and have somewhat of an undercover organization. Both of these undercover groups have great power and can change the world very easily. If you liked one, you'll like the other.
Both are made by Tatsunoko Productions and this is shown by the similarities in the art direction and the use of CG. Both have a similar feel of being quite mysterious but you eventually learn about the powers as the shows progress. even though both shows are quite different in their premise, the fact is that if you like either one of these shows, you will like the other.
In both there exists a different world where people fight each other. In this separate world there exists an "avatar" of a person in our world. In C it's the person's "Asset" which reflects one of the person's possible futures. In BRS it's an another person (resembling the real world version) which reflects the feelings of the person in the real world. In C their fights happen consciously and they affect the real world while in BRS it's vice versa, they fight unconsciously and the real world actions affect the fighting in the other world. The main characters are somewhat similar personality-wise. They both don't want to hurt others but at the same time are afraid of getting hurt. read more
They are both short and dark, with no actual protagonists or antagonists, merely people with different ethics. The ethics in C are very interesting, especially to apply to other situations. Like in Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the combat isn't the primary concern, with C spending more time analysing the consequences.
Very similar protagonists are forced into a situation that they know very little about yet happens to have ties to their past. Additionally, the plots both have the same pacing and fights work the same way with a cost applied to the loser.
Although these series are quite different in their mood and idea, they share the following two things:
(1) Protagonists in both series get in a mysterious parallel world and fight there using powerful "familiars" (actually, they're not usual familiars, but explaining them would be a spoiler, so let's leave it at that). The reasons for fighting and effect of the battle outcome are really different, but the process is pretty much the same: the familiars combat under their owners command invoking different technics and weapons, and that makes a really nice and impressive action.
(2) There is a mystery that protagonists are trying to figure out in both series. read more
*Both animes have two different worlds. In Persona 4 there is the normal world and the TV world. In C there is the normal world and the Financial District.
*Both animes summon monsters using cards. In Persona 4 they are known as Personas, while in C they are known as Assets.
*The overall moral in both stories are extremely different
*The way each story progresses is different
The main character(s) of both anime go to an alternate world because their lives weren't so great in the real world. They also gamble something very precious to them with each battle they participate in.
- Interacting with/in an alternate world
- Colourful designs
- Battles with lots of shiny beams
- OP MC
- Energetic and weird God character
There's not as much fanservice in C as there is in NGNL though.
Money plays a huge role in both animes. How it affects society, how it effects people, and what what could happen if it all went away. C is pretty much exclusively about money, but in Speed Grapher it is only prevalent in the villain. However both have a lot to say about money and society.
Same vibes where the main characters are very similar. Although the premise of [C] might be dark, it's actually full of hope just like Pokemon. The main character Yoga is like Ash in a lot of ways. He also has a pokemon, in which it is termed as an "asset" in the world of [C]. Msyu is the said asset, who acts just like the pokemon Pikachu. Pikachu though the cuddly and cute-looking one, is actually the one who has a deeper and more human-like personalities than the humanoid Msyu. Both are very DEEP.
*C: The Money of soul and possibility control uses Money (Midas money) and Assets to save the world
*Devil Survivor 2 uses demons to save the world
Boy protagonists meets a guy trying to change and save the world even if it means to sacrifice.
Both series are survival
Well, to begin with, both anime feature a male main character. Their lives are both flipped completely once they become involved in a game. Along with this, the anime revolve around the theme of survival. Because of this, there are a good amount of battle scenes which feature a variety of demons.
You saw Lelouch's attempt at rescuing Japan from the clutches of Britannia. Now we're on a mission to rescue Japan from financial collapse! Just like in Code Geass, the two main characters in "C" start out as friends, however they soon become enemies. Both of the main characters are trying to save Japan, but their different methods conflict with each other.
The only similarity between these two anime is the mature storyline that is aimed at audiences. On top of that, they are not that commercially based e.g. cute character, love etc. They deal with things that could happen in real life for example, the economy, murder, psychology and so on
We can appreciate these similarities:
- People who are chosen from millions, have the opportunity of their lives. But to enjoy that opportunity you must earn points, even if that means ending someone else's life.
- A survival game, where they put the future of the person in play, which have a power that can be beneficial for others and for itself.
- We can also appreciate the lives of the people who participate, who needed this power, to help themselves with their lives.
- You can learn a lot about these animes, the two are not limited to make big money orders they want, if not explained in the Classroom If a company's dealings C:TMSP and economic theory.
- Romance is slight and slow, but take time but you can see a romance that fits well with the main story.
- The drama, how you feel, how mistreated they are the main characters.
The main characters have the same feel; in [C], Kimimaro and Mashu are in a trust relationship that also seems like a one sided master pet relationship; in [K], Neko and Shiro also have the same relationship.
Additionally, both animes contain a fine line of fantasy, and the fighting style is similar [although in C they use assets, and in K they use swords or other magic]
Minaki also highly reminds me of Mikoto Suoh from K.
The two go well in-depth into how an economy works and both feature two pairs of main characters who, at first didn't have very good chemistry, end up becoming very close towards the end. Themes of money and power control are also constantly present in both, though the two have drastically different settings.
Instead of remembering about yourself the main character is trying to remember about his dads past, also both have some type of spirit which helps them on there journey,
another thing the genre makes it much alike and the settings and art style is very similar
C is about money and is more fantasy
Amnesia is just about forgetting and trying to remember who she was
Blue Exorcist and [C] are not similar in many ways. However, where they are similar is astonishing, and quite amusing.
Both animes have two worlds parallel to each other. And both parallel worlds "invade" "reality." For [C], the money invades, but for Blue Exorcist, the demons are the ones that invade.
Both animes have fun fight scenes. And the fight scenes are mostly about the main character. However, I felt that [C] focused more on other characters, unlike Blue Exorcist, which was all about Rin.
The main characters Okumura Rin (Blue Exorcist) and Yoga Kimimaro ([C]) are not alike in any respect, besides being the main protagonist of the show.
Another final detail that made these animes alike is the similarity between two very amusing characters: Mephisto Pheles (Blue Exorcist) and Masakaki ([C]). They are both very intriguing, and share a similar personality. Besides, the smiles are similar. And they both "help" their own main characters.
So, I'm not going to say that if you liked one, you'll like the other, because they're hardly similar at all. I can just say that if you liked Masakaki, you'll like Mephisto, and if you liked Mephisto, you'll like Masakaki. These two animes don't even have a similar feel apart from these characters. But you'll probably like both, because in their own respect, they're both very interesting apart from one another. read more
The shows are very different and are geared towards different audiences, but they both use an English Computerized voice when they use their powers. The computerized voice sounds almost exactly the same.
Both are stories dealing with changes in time flow and main characters who notice the changes and their [mostly negative] effects.
C has more of an internal, personal conflict, while Steins;Gate's conflict is more external.
Both are about a main protagonist who is a normal boy at first but then he later is involved in a strange chain of events that seem to connect and affect all the people around him. While DRRR was supernatural tones, C has fantasy.
They both have the protagonist entering a game that turns out to be more than what they bargained for. They both control avatars that fight their battles with unique personalities and those avatars both have a mysterious relationship to the human world. In both stories there are also real world consequences for winning and/or losing the game that have to do with wishes and or desires being realized or dashed.
Besides the fact that these series mostly revolve around the use of drawing their powers from card(s), there are some serious tones throughout the plot. The duels of both of these series determine the player's of the big outlook of Survival of the Fittest. Losing a duel could be least costly of dropping reputation to costing lives.
With less childish art, another world for battles, battles which involve the movement of money with great action scenes and a more mature plot, C provides much more food for thought for the average viewer and would probably be enjoyable to most who enjoy this series although the reverse may not hold true.
C's bank world has the same feeling to Bakemonogatari
they have similar amounts of love (dont really know how to put it)
both like to cut around alot, you understand if you seen one
both (C's bank world, not real world) use like odd colors and colors that have... ...emphasis compared to the surrounding
both have weird creatures that are connected to certain humans
Older teen is forced to frequently fight in a separate dimension under the control of an otherworldy creature. Gantz is darker/more mature and about survival ... while C while remaining a serious show is less dramatic/dark and is all about money.
Small actions result in large results. In Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei, the protagonist explores the different paths he may take while in college, which in each one results in his demise. In C, the protagonist ventures in the world of the 'Financial District.' In that world, those who lost 'money' or go bankrupt would suffer in the real world. Both series share the common idea of earning an opportunity that could either make or break you.
