Indeed similar, while watching Mirai Nikki it brought me back the feeling i had when i used to watch Higashi no Eden. Both series are action and mystery genres, as well both share an important point of the main line in the plot: a teenager (Akira for Higashi and Yukiteru for Mirai) received a "special phone" and has to somewhat change the world with it. Akira has 10 billions of yen which he has to use to change Japan for good, as well Yukiteru has the diary of future which he needs to use in order to survive and become the new god of space and time. Still,  read more

Both anime are survival death games. While Mirai Nikki lets players use personalized Future Diaries, Btooom! gives them specific types of bombs. Mirai Nikki has supernatural elements while Btoom stays on real side. Main characters are incredibly dumb but Btooom!'s MC at least doesn't care about ethics that much which makes him more interesting.

Both of these Anime deal with notes that fortell things. On one side, you have a strong male lead who writes the death futures, on the other side, you have a weak male lead who sees his own future predicted and his possible death.

Both series will have you cheering on morally ambiguous or even psychopathic protagonists in violent confrontations. There's a bit of (usually dark) humour and exploring relationships between characters, including romantic subplots. Also, pink hair.

Both anime narrate a deaths sequel, one is more like a game that the one who lives will be the new God, and the other is a school tragedy, that the peaple will stop dieying just when they found out the 'ghost roomate'. Blood and drama, characters with tragic stories, despair, two very popular anime from the same year.

If you take a serious look at both of them, you might discover that they are really alike. I first watched Mirai Nikki (when it was released) and two days ago I have also watched Guilty Crown; my first impression was: this is very similar to Mirai Nikki. They are both Thriller /Action /Superpower animes with the necessary drop of romance, drama and fine graphics. They are similar in graphics, in action and interest. Also, the characters are at some point alike (if we are talking about the main characters : Shuu is similar to Yuki quite a lot, even though Inori is not completely alike  read more

One victor - for the ultimate price, both series involves a scenario where the main character becomes a target for assassination. Luckily, they do manage to make friends with an unlikely alliance who has their own skills in protecting them. And although different in man ways, they bond throughout the series and learn about each others' dark pasts. Both series features a cast of diverse characters each with their own set of skills and personalities. Expect grim scenes and horrific sequences when it comes to attempts to kill off their targets.

Both basically have the same idea of survival fighting people with similar origin of special powers. The protagonist gets a psycho female sidekick and they venture out into the world to achieve whatever goals they have. However, the female sidekick in Big Order wants revenge on the male protagonist whereas the female protagonist in Mirai Nikki basically loves the male protagonist to death. Literally to death.

Something that people enjoy is turned into a living nightmare and it involves technology. A character who is unable to make friends is suddenly able to make friends only to lose them due to the "game". There is also a "god" in the game too.

Creepy mystery-thriller plots. Feature a stalker girl. And lots of blood and whacks. Shiki is a lot more mood-driven, and Mirai Nikki feels more mainstream.

"I am here to protect you because we are destined to be together." And of course the main character is thinking along the lines, "What is up with this crazy chick?". Well, the hero and heroine go through a bunch of mysteries of sorts in order to survive, whether it be from a "game" or it be killers on the street.

Both have a school setting and a romance where one of the girls is basically THE definition of "yandere" and the boy doesn't speak his mind (or, quite frankly, is an idiot). There's gore in both shows (though in Mirai Nikki a lot more). School days rather focuses on the romance and the drama, while Mirai Nikki has a plot that revolves around a survival game, though the romance is still important for the way the character act. Both can be a bit disturbing at certain parts and both are kind of hit-or-miss shows with a lot of people loving them and a lot of people  read more

Mobile phones get used as tools of survival game warfare, whilst characters act stupid and die/suicide for 'so bad, it's kinda good?' entertainment purposes. This is why I don't have a phone. Ousama Game has Light Yagami's voice; Mirai Nikki has cute waifu yandere Yuno. Make your choice wisely. Mirai Nikki also has a budget.

The atmosphere is very similar in both, dark, eerie, yet also some quirkiness at times... and the presence of much blood and gore, very graphic and psychotic... The male protagonist in both also seem similar in that they are just normal students until they are entangled in a "game" of life and death, contemplating murder in order to survive. They both also met very crazed girls who seem to hold no remorse for killing.

"Dude, you're so way dead unless you do something to change it," your cellphone suddenly tells you.

BTW, the world is totally ending, so have fun with that!"

To Kill or Be Killed Both shows employ the concept of "Battle Royal", where contestants will fight or kill each other until only one survivor remains. The only difference is Mirai Nikki has a vast location while Danganronpa is only limited to a specific place.

There is this common link between the two series which is hard to get into without getting into spoilers for 11eyes, yet in some ways the common link is one that is going to vary from person to person, as one person’s favorite character isn’t going to be the favorite character of another person. What I can say though regarding this common link is that I personally have felt a deep connection with the characters of both series, but found myself rooting for said characters. Yet, in this regard, both series are dark, so one should not go in expecting a happy ending.

I found that the main characters of both (Zero Two and Hiro, Yuno and Yuuki) have very similar traits and characteristics that bring together their independent series'. Zero Two and Yuno have very passionate and goal-directed behaviour, whereas Hiro and Yuuki are both leaders in their own right (Yuuki falls into the category a lot later than Hiro though). And yes, each pair have the same hair colour.

They both share a similar characteristic of playing with your emotions, although Mirai Nikki has a much much stronger element of fear added in the mix. Both have strong plots and dark character backstories that become motives for their struggles. One could also argue that Mirai Nikki is a perversion of Angel Beats! since the participants are forced to fight each other to alleviate their live's sorrows instead of working together to overcome them.

Both are involved with tournament-survival game, where book owners (Gash Bell)/diary's owners (Mirai Nikki) will have to destroy each other book/diary. The winner, which is the last one standing will became king (Gash Bell)/god (Mirai Nikki). Mirai Nikki is darker than Gash Bell in many prospects including destroying diary will lead to death of the owner, thus owners mostly wouldn't care less to kill each other directly. While in Gash Bell, the demon of the book will return to demon world after destroying the book.

A group of individuals are selected to fight in a death match. Both settings are urban and the contestants are a variety of unique characters. Their their battles include well animated fight scenes and calculative and strategic monologues. Mirai Nikki has plot twists and interesting character backgrounds which involve complex romances.

The art styles of both Anime contain Gothic elements. The story lines are dark. The main characters are nobodies. Technology is in some manner involved. A game is involved that could leave one completely out of the game for good. Things slowly get revealed over time. They also have interesting casts of characters.

Both involve some way of surviving in a supernatural setting. In Mirai Nikki, one person has to survive to replace the current God, who is currently running out of time and in Gunslinger Stratos, two teams (both teams are the same people, but with alternate personalities from a different world) fight each other to the death, to determine which world should survive since there are two worlds. Both are also violent and action packed.

These to animes are similar because it's about God/Deus (latin). There is this game going on where the main characters go all out, meaning betting their own lives on the games they are playing. Of course, we have a God who watches them and observes the process, but does not interfere with them. I want to end this recommendation with the fact that there are a lot of plot twists and surprising moments which you cannot always predict.

The main similarity shared between the two anime is the theme of "Love." In both anime, the lead female character loves the leading male protagonist so much. With this, it makes them seem as a stalker/yandere... which is true (It's obviously true in Mirai Nikki as she killed people for the leading male while the leading female in Netoge No Yome acts like one, but never actually kills a person). "At first, the leading male doesn't care much for her, in fact he views her more of a creep. But over time, he tends to like her more and more." This is true for both anime. So  read more

Both animes are death games, where the last surviving player will win something on a mass scale. To survive the death games, the characters participating are given something to help them succeed. In UBW, the characters have servants, who were once heroic spirits, fend for them. However in Mirai Nikki, the characters have personalised future diaries .

This recommendation may be a stretch, but these two series both gave me weird feelings while watching them. Mysterious Girlfriend X is more light-hearted and lovey-dovey while Mirai Nikki has more of a serious tone to the whole anime. Both series have their main characters obsessed over one another (Yuno and Yukki in Mirai Nikki, Tsubaki and Urabe in MGX). If you liked MGX, I think you should be able to like Mirai Nikki, and vice versa.

Both really Plot-twisty and exciting to watch. The main girl characters (AIKA, YUNO) have interest personalities and story twist is main revolved around them. The main characters really does not have any special powers whatsoever. Similar Length. Both has questionable moments about what the main conflict is as well as who or what is the antagonist. Both Mysterious. Both really underrated and overlooked animes.

Tbvh this Mirai Nikki isn't even similar to Corpse Party at all. But it has that psychotic, crazy, mental feeling in it that makes you want to say "This is so messed up but wtf that was cool as hell." Especially at the end of Corpse Party I was like //woah. Plus! If you like gore and blood and just crazy psycho characters running around killing people with wide open eyes and creepy smiles then Mirai Nikki is for you. And to throw in a bonus you will meet the queen of yandere's: Gasai Yuno. You'll have a blast with her :))

Both of these Anime involve a dark storyline from the start. While Mirai Nikki doesn't have actual puzzles, the characters have to figure out a kind of mental logic puzzle when it comes to the other players in the death game. As for Phi Brain, while the death games aren't as drastic, the main characters have to solve the puzzles so that they or other people won't die.

The psychological tension is in both animes. Death parade i guess more. If you like psychological and plot twist animes i have to recommend Death Parade because it's really interesting , not quite similar to mirai nikki but I feel like the mood and theme is same. In Death parade people are put into very tense situations and from that you can see mental breakdowns and more interesting ''events''. Have fun watching it, Don't marathon it - Its more interesting 1-2 episodes a day!

Both revolve around the idea of diaries and the future; in Orange the MC keeps a diary which she uses to know the mistakes she made to tell her past self. In Mirai Nikki, the MC(s) use diaries that tell them of the future. Both revolve around this but present the idea in different ways; I'd recommend watching both!

Tonally and in terms of the relationship between the leads, this is the closest I've found.

Whereas Mirai Nikki is interspersed with random bits of humor and lightness amidst the violence and dark themes, Tasogare starts out lighter in tone and gradually grows darker across the run of the series, eventually including that level of violence.

Let's see here: -Both shows have a lot to deal with supernatural themes -Both can get rather extreme at times (although this happens more in Mnemosyne than in Mirai Nikki) -Both have a female lead who is associated with the show (Yuno Gasai in Mirai Nikki, Rin Asogi in Mnemosyne) -Both happen to have at least one female character who has "god" powers in a way (Mnemosyne has Rin Asogi and Mimi; I can't say who the characters are in Mirai Nikki without spoiling them, but if you've seen Mirai Nikki, you'll know who I'm referring to) -Both are really scary and violent

Both aren't for the light-hearted and fairly deep plots. Very sci-fi centered themes. Psycho-Pass has a future and adult based setting whereas Mirai Nikki is more of a present, fictional and (slight) high school setting. Psycho-Pass is, however, superior.

Both leave you wondering why something happened in most episodes and have unexpected series of events. The female character is a mystery in both of them. Mirai Nikki doesn't look as good as Gode Geass but it is really interesting

Just like Mirai Nikki, Kiseijuu has a lot of gore and bloody scenes, the plot is original and the graphic is awesome just like Mirai Nikki. Both animes have unexpected turns of situation. Also, you may like that little drib of romance inside it that makes the character grow little by little.

- both anime talks about group of people who fight to beat each other in order to make their wishes comes true , in mirai nikkie they fight to be God and In wixoss they fight to be Eternal Girl so they can make their wishes. - both anime are psychological.

Same feeling of helpless excitement/tension. Both bring a certain sense of relief when things go right and a feeling of dread when it goes wrong. MCs are a lot alike too. Helpless at first but well rounded and tactical later on.
