Guy moves into a town which holds a mystery that unravels troughout the show. Higurashi has some lighter slice of life episodes, but that's cool because it's pretty long including -kai.
Highly reccomend both
These both have an extremely eerie and dark mood to them making the viewer curious and wanting more. Both start out relatively calmly, with the tension gradually building up into something a lot more gruesome. No holding back with the terror and blood!
Small towns with big secrets. Horror series that show how terrifying normal school kids can turn out to be when pushed to their limits by the darkest horrors their towns have to offer. Both also have themes of cyclical repetition, with Another's events happening year after year and Higurashi repeating the same summer over and over again. The main character are very similar.
Both anime show the same theme of mystery and random deaths. However, If you continue to watch "Higurashi", all is explained towards the end of the series. Throughout "Another" the conspicuous deaths and murderers are somewhat explained all together towards the end.
During watching both of them you get the same feeling. The plot is simillar - a boy going to a new school, meet new friends and everything seems great till.. boom, everything is getting creepy, there's a lot of blood and inexplicable deaths. If you enjoyed one of theese you should see the other one.
Main character's family moves him to a new town with dark secrets. Blood and murder and sinister atmosphere. The classmates of the main character have secrets that they'd rather keep hidden from the main character, and are willing to go to great lengths to do so. They also both start off calm, lulling you into a false sense of security before turning up the horror.
An ordinary teenage boy moves into a strange rural town where his classmates seem to be keeping a dark secret from him. There's a horror and a mystery atmosphere. Both are set in the past (Higurashi in 1983, Another in 1998).
Just like another, Higurashi is a bit darker anime, with a lot of mystery, suspense and gore. It'll keep you guessing till the very end, and the atmosphere is simply amazing. The series is also spiced up with various funny moments, which surprisingly enough don't take away from the creepy feel, but only reinforce it in turn. Definitely a must watch.
Both of these anime lean towards a dark aspect with many creepy undertones. However from what I've seen of Another it has much less gore an insanity than Higurashi, so if you want something with more of a creep-out factor than gore, watch Another.
Both series are about boys who recently move to new towns and are oblivious of the creepy things taking place, but they get dragged into them anyways.
Creepiness and unpredictability are present in both series, yet Higurashi starts off as more lighthearted and funny in addition to the fact that it is composed of several arcs.
A normal boy moves to a new town. Within the first 3 episodes, we see this boy get involved with many creep factors. Both the series consist of blood, mystery, girls who are more than they seem, and just all out thrillers.
Even before finishing this series, I knew that there was something similar between Higurashi and Another. MC arrives into a small town, meets new people, and let the psychological twists begin. Murders and mystery play a central theme as the thriller-like sequences repeats over and over. In both series, a calamity that has not been lifted repeats in a Groundhog Day-like loop.
Horror animes with some bloody death scenes. New guys move to small towns that hold big secrets. The deaths in both series are believed to be the result of a mysterious curse. Both show ordinary high school students driven to insanity and committing horrifying crimes. Both take place over 10 years in the past.
It gives you the same feeling.. And it is although kind of the same because in the beginning of both animes, Kouichi's classmates seem to hide something dark from him, while in Higurashi, Keichi's friends are also hiding something 'dark' from him. I love both of these anime, they give you a creepy feeling. I highly suggest watching these two.
Both animes involve a young man who moves into a new (small) town. Certain dark events have happened before and it starts to repeat itself again. In the two animes, both stories keep blowing your mind; changing everything when the main character finds things out.
Boy moves to a new, seemingly normal and quite town. That is until past events start to unravel and everything isn't what it seems. If you enjoyed Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, you should defiantly give Another a try.
They are both very extraordinary horrors that have a great plot, story, sound and have a polished art style.
It seems to have much murders and also have a great story behind it, what ever you liked, Another or Higurashi, I can assure you, this is a must watch. I gave it a 9/10, and I'm slightly strict on my ratings.
They are similar in characters, the flow of the story and the flow of the whole series.
(Higurashi has a sequel and OVAs, while I believe the prequel for Another is to be watched after the T.V. series)
But go check it out. You have nothing to lose. You will be hooked by the 3rd episode. Enjoy this masterpiece.  read more
In a remote village in Japan before the great internet age, a group of high schoolers find themselves at the center of a series of mysterious deaths. They must find out how to survive and stop the deaths.
Both of these series also have terrible communication between friends causing most of the drama. Especially in Another where the whole plot could be solved in three episodes if everyone just talked to each other. However, if you like a suspenseful atmosphere and violet, sometimes silly deaths, then try out both of these interesting anime.
Both series start off whit a boy who moves to an unfamiliar town,which holds a curse.
A loth of mysterious,and gory deaths occur due to this curse.The horror in both is very well made,and also they are both confusing at first.
These two animes are horror and everything is mysterious...
If you watched anime Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni then you will definitely like Another.
Genre for Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni : Horror, Mystery, Psychological, Thriller
Genre for Another: Mystery, Horror, Drama, School :3
Another is much more like Higurashi than Elfen Lied. They both have a main protagonist who goes to a school in a new place and both try to figure out the mystery that is killing people. There are lots of murders and bloody scenes in both.
Another and Higurashi are similar because in both stories they have a calamity which people die from but the plots are completely different. Both are very great anime but are different an alike. Higurashi consist on more of a different plot rather where in Another it focuses on the death both have surprise endings and unexpected event. Even though Another has a shocking ending, unexpected, Higurashi has a lot of turns of events and is longer. Both series are different while Higurashi has more than 30 episodes while Another had about 12 or so :]
- follows a story of a man who just recently moved to a remote town and unravels a supernatural mystery that is occurring in it.
- a lot people dying. In Higurashi, it is caused by a conspiracy labeled as "curse", while in Another, it is plainly caused by a curse/grudge.
Supernatural mysteries are indeed interesting, but what if it's being packaged with a little gore scene? Another is more mild but gives a serious atmosphere all the time, while higurashi has a slight changes in the atmosphere but when it comes to gruesome scenes, higurashi offers more.
Both anime are ready to fulfill you desires!
Both have supernatural elements, a somewhat dark atmosphere and are the what-the-hell-is-going-on type of suspense anime. Higurashi no Naku Koro ni however seems to operate at a higher level of the latter, I swear I had no clue what I was watching until after reading up on the series' origin. Plot twists, nail-biting action and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your chair/couch/bed (and at times knock you off of said furniture and into the floor, much like the corpses of characters in both animes). Blood, dementia, and oh did I say blood?
- New guy moves in to town
- Both Keiichi and Kouichi are very similar.
- Classmates won't tell them the secret of the "curse."
- Both involves a "curse" where someone dies every year.
- Overall mood very similar.
Both shows have sudden plot twists and their endings are both just 'wow' when the culprit is revealed.
The main characters' names for both of the show are almost the same:
Another: Koiichi Sakakibara
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Keiichi Maebara
Both of them move into a new town/village and school only to find out that people are hiding terrible secrets from them.
The supernatural theme is in both anime, though very different (one more to do with death, the other to do with, well, you'll find out).
One great similarity is how they both make you think that something specific is happening at the start, however, they lately reveal something entirely different is happening or is at work. read more
Both are horror series involving a city boy moving to a small town and discovering the bizarre tragedies that occurred there years earlier. His friends act strangely when he asks about these events. Another is very short (12 eps) whereas Higurashi is very long (50 eps)
Both series have that sort of "Guy transfers to a small, new village and goes to school and everything is quite dandy until OH WOW okay people are dying frequently and brutally... well then" feel to them. While both plots have been done before, they're done in a verry riviting way that kept me watching intently form start to end. Highly recommended!
both Higurashi and Another are centered around what is called a curse, and both have more of an in depth complex idea at the very end. For example in Higurashi the main character, Maebara Keiichi only recently moved to Hinamizawa and has been there for around a year or six months, which is quite like the main character in Another, Kouichi Sakakibara who only recently transferred to Yomiyama north and stayed in the town. If you're looking for violence and gore both of these share an equal amount, and are very well made. You also find out what's going on through each one, bit by bit, so it's quite suspenseful and has an element of mystery. The story lines are quite different yet they have similar ideas, so give another or higurashi a try, you won't be disappointed. read more
Both of these spine-chilling horror animes have a surprisingly similar setting: Your somewhat typical highschool guy MC moves to a small village, only to find himself in the middle of a vicious mystery. However, they are definitely not completely the same - The 'Higurashi' series is more focused on the story and suspense with it's super complex plot, while 'Another' is more focused on the artstyle, atmosphere and the fountains of blood.
It is also a horror story. If you like another you might as well like Higurashi....
-both of the anime has the exact atmosphere for the entire season
-both are horror and mysterious :p
-Higurashi has murder and so on while Another doesnt really have(except for the last episode)
-Higurashi's horror is centered on one specific at a time while Another isnt
When I first started watching Another, I was 100% sure it'd be extremely similar to Higurashi.
- Both of them start with a student who just moves into the village and strange murders start occuring around him.
- Both of them involve students dealing with most of the investigations.
Although Another can't be called as brutal as Higurashi, it's still a very similar show.
Both are horror and mystery series with Higurashi being psychological thriller. Higurashi is similar to another in many ways be it the mystery element or the horror or the gore or the pure mindf**k you go through.
To be blunt, Another is not as good as Higurashi. Unfortunately, there are not many good horror anime to choose from. If you enjoyed the brutal deaths and mystery of Higurashi, then you will enjoy Another. Another offers a melancholy and dreary tone with sudden, terrifying deaths keeping you intrigued. Also, the mystery behind the curse is akin to the mystery element of Higurashi.
Seems like I was late. so nevertheless by majority votes:
both shows have gruesome death and gore
both shows have this so called 'cursed'
both shows are very well made
both shows are good
and many more.
The anime have the same feel to them. Both of the plots revolve around a small "cursed" village and mysterious deaths. They are both excellent as well, if you liked one of them the other is a must see.
Both give a similar feeling: New guy arrives to a little village, and certain dark events start happening that are somehow related to a young mysterious girl. Slow and creepy atmosphere that makes you want to find out what´s going on. Brilliant ost and VA´s. Personally I enjoyed Shiki more, because it gives a deeper development to its characters and a more intricate plot. Still, Both are awesome animes that will keep you thrilled till the end, so if you enjoyed one, you will probably enjoy the other.
Well, both series are Mystery genres..
They give the same scary feeling due to the lots of creepy deaths all over the stories.
Yet, both show the main male character wiling to stop this "supernatural phenomenon".
Also a special mention to the cure of the music, which both serie have.
If you enjoyed one of those, you might probably enjoy the other as well!
The difference in shows is that in Another we don't know what is happening and why so it has to be investigated. However, in Shiki we know the cause of the deaths from the start and are simply observing everything from the distance, watching how characters will deal with the issue.
Other than that, shows are very similar. In both shows people suddenly start to die.In Another people from one class die and in Shiki in one of the villages.
In both shows characters try to find the cause and stop it. Both shows start slow but eventually end up in blood bath. Both shows have quiet a lot of under developed characters though in Another it is more eye burning.  read more
Shiki and Another are mystery and horror anime that share the same type of overall dread for the viewer. They take place in a quiet and sleepy town that soon gives way to the chaos and paranoia flowing within everyone's psyche. They also feature mysterious girls whose presence and existence psychologically bash everyone else's sanity and causes a train-wreck, chain-reaction-like phenomenon, that leaves many dead and others messed up from the sheer horror and unspeakable events that unfold. Both series, especially Shiki, also offer really unique animation and creepy background music. If you liked watching one of them I highly recommend trying out the other. read more
Both fall under the horror genre and give off similar vibes by establishing a slow-paced mystery in order to create suspense. Shiki focuses on character and buildup, while Another uses foreshadowing and atmosphere.
Perhaps creepy at times, and shocking at others.
Worthy of mentioning is that the writer for Another is the husband for the writer of Shiki. Truly, the greatest love story ever told.
Shiki is similar to both Another and Mirai Nikki. This is because again the anime shares characters and themes. The main protagonist in Shiki could be argued of being either the girl or boy, but I myself think it is the boy. Though this might sound as if it juxtaposes with the recommended anime's it doesn't. It is really quite similar. Shiki's main theme is that of death. Death is like the central for the plot as the town gets consumed by it one by one. Without giving too much away, this anime also shares the theme of fantasy, or rather, supernatural. This is another positive point to this anime that may lure many viewers in. Personally, I think that this anime is a little more retro feeling rather than the luxury art you gain through Another and Mirai Nikki. I would highly recommend this anime to those who have enjoyed the other anime's I have recommended. read more
While Shiki is more of a thriller than a horror, they both take place in a small rural town. Mysterious, supernatural deaths are also something the two series share. The protagonist in each show tries to uncover the truth behind the deaths.
Both series deal with the supernatural as found in a cloistered community, and the drastic measures which must be taken to deal with the danger to humanity. Shiki is more cerebral and philosophical; Another is more of an excellent demonstration of classic horror tropes.
•Both are small out of place towns, that are surrounded by nature, cut off from the rest of the world.
•they also have a boy moving from the city to live in the town.
•the sense of mystery is more blunt in Another, but they both portray horror thats absolutely wonderful, if you love blood and killing.
•both have outbreak of killings as the story progresses, which are visually graphic, which is the BEST!
•they both question humanity and how their brain works when put under pressure of murder and how •they act accordingly towards finding an answer in different ways.
Both are a horror genre with a bit of mystery. Both are great anime, though I think I enjoyed another's finale more than Shiki. Both have a supernatural element that drives the story forward. Gore is also on the same levels.
If you're familiar with the horror-genre, you probably know that moving to a small town isn't really the recipe for a carefree life. Both protagonists find themselves surrounded by unknown enemies and it is their job to stop either the spreading of a 'virus' (Shiki) or to lift a curse (Another). Regardless which anime you choose to watch, there'll be enough deaths, blood and mystery to the story to leave you wondering what will happen next.
Both seem to be pretty remote towns
Both have an outbreak of deaths
The citizens in both don't seem to have any idea for what to do
Both have a pretty good suspenseful aura
Both don't hold back on showing the killing
In both, a new guy moves to a small town. Shortly after, strange and sudden deaths start to occur, and the main character attempts to find out why. Both anime have gory scenes, involve the living dead, contain mystery, and give off that same eerie feeling.
Both have an eerie atmosphere and a feel of mystery to them. Both stories take place after the arrival of a new guy in town. Both stories start out slow and take a while to reach the their full potential.
Both are traditional horror, meaning it's more about the human psych and terror that lies within the heart then blood and gore. Both anime shows just how far humans are willing to go when their lives are on the line.
New guy comes to town and notices that weird stuff is happening and wants to get to solve mystery. Both anime are full of mystery and horror. They have the same feel. Both also have good likable characters. Both are filled with emotion and have tragic killings.
- Both involve people dealing with a force that is mysterious in nature
- Both have strong psychological moments
- One of the characters becomes involved in the story after moving to the area the story takes place in
Both anime are set in an isolated village giving off a dark, mysterious atmosphere throughout the whole show with no comedy. As a result the anime gains a very serious mood while dealing with supernatural events. Shiki differs from Another due to that deep narrations of human nature and its values whereas Another inspires thrill and a desire for conclusion as such Another starts the plot right away while Shiki takes a couple of episodes to get started. All in all, if you did enjoy one of them you will without a doubt enjoy the other. :)
- Both anime center around a young boy that is in a rural city and both strange events that occur are (somehow) related to a mysterious, young girl that is less shown to the others but the main character knows her and is a friend of the girl.
-Both anime are not you're traditional "happy end" story since the end is more like a neutral one when the outcome is happy but the loss is far too great to be called an total H.E (Happy End).
-Although the characters were friends they start killing each other at a certain point in the show.
-In the end the main character has to do a choice that it will change the way he thinks forever
If u liked one you should at least try the other. If you're enough patient you'll definitely see the huge similarities.  read more
-Both creepy and produce the same atmosphere.
-Both based in a town.
-School boy recently moves to town (both main characters).
-All events appear to center around a girl.
-Both have a good plot and character development.
-Both are "horror".
I found Shiki to be more interesting than Another and felt the character development was also stronger in Shiki. Another is aimed at a slightly younger audience than Shiki.
Both are strange and dark anime, with charisma character.
Draws are beautifuls and the atmosphere is really particular, and it's a charmed for those both anime.
(and there are gore story's at the same time ^^' )
Shiki,a horror anime like Another,develops slowly but it gets better the more the story advances.
It starts vaguely,without letting the viewers know much about the story or what is happening in the village,but letting traces to allow them to go ahead of the characters.
The atmosphere in Shiki reminded me of Another and i think it deservers a try
The genre is the same - Psychological, Horror
Shiki is a bit slow, but overall i felt it is a more impactful anime than another.
Shiki also deals with 'undead' and has lots of character deaths n shock treatments.
…are mysteries about strange (and deadly) happenings in a village.
…have some gratuitous violence (Another is more exaggerated, Shiki is more serious).
…succeed at creating a dark and mysterious atmosphere.
…have supernatural elements and deal with undeath.
Another is a bit more accessible, but falls flat in terms of emotional impact and characterization. Shiki is deeper and has better writing, as well as a more satisfying finale, but suffers from a very strange art style that can be distracting at times. I think Shiki is definitely superior, but if you don’t like it you might still enjoy Another.
A story very Simillar to Another...All 2 of them takes place in a Small village,have the same Horror,supernatural feel to It..& all of them deservers a high praise on Tragic horror stories too.
A very Dark,Mysterious,Horror,Supernatural,Vampire based thriller that gives off the same vibe as Higurashi series.
The anime might seem boring on first few episodes but have some patience...because your patience will be rewarded as the story keeps unravelling & takes a huge turn to being a pure horror,Tragedic thriller that will give you the chills & the thrills.
The story is so emotional & tragic that you will even pity the villains at some point. 😣😭 read more
Groups of high school students are killed in mysterious ways by some seemingly supernatural occurrence. Another goes outside of the school while Corpse Party only takes place inside a school, but the school buildings are similar and creepy (despite Another's being to a far lesser extent). They have similar character designs and the characters have similar psychological breakdowns due to the extreme situations they are placed in, but Corpse Party is about ten times gorier than Another.
Both take place in a supernatural world/school where an unknown force causes many people to die, usually in horrifying ways. There is some sort of curse involved in the incidents and the characters try to escape.
Both contain blood and has a relatively dark atmosphere.
Well, to put it simple, without spoiling anything.
- Loads a gore
-All of the stuff happens at a school, just like Corpse Party
-very strong on the story,and story before the anime.
I was very thirsty for some gore animes when i watched corpse party, so if anybody wants just more than corpse party, watch Another, very great characters, story is perfect, animation and sounds are good, really creepy most of the moments, and the deaths.. The deaths are over the top.
For the corpse party, it was just simply glorious deaths.
Both animes are about students who are being killed by something supernatural and they try to solve the mystery behind these tragic deaths. A lot of blood, a thrilling atmosphere, many horror scenes and agonizing feelings are the common characteristics of these two series.
Both series are blood spurting, thrilling anime with a shroud of mystery.
Well, this anime doesn't have any similarities to the protagonist that you liked or loved, but I have created this recommendation to share the similarities of the story.
Both series' story is surrounded by mystery which unknown to the characters, which they are trying to stop.
Students are mysteriously killed in horrifying ways in their school. Both have supernatural themes and students try to escape a curse. Corpse Party has more gore but both are bloody and scary. Both have their own twists that you most likely won't have seen coming.
In both shows there is a supernatural curse in which the characters are being killed by. Corpse Party definitely has a lot more gore than Another but if you liked Corpse Party then you'll most likely like Another.
-They're both gory
-Both set in a school
-Characters have weird and sad pasts
-Both are about/focus on death
Corpse Party is only 4 episodes, and has more tension, whereas Another has 12 episodes, and the story starts off slow. The story does get more tense in the last few episodes though, I thoroughly enjoyed both.
- Students group.
- Anime gore and mystery.
- A curse surrounding these guys, where everyone is at risk of dying . Because of dead people and ghosts of the past .
- But there is a way to stop this curse.
They are both full of gore and have unique death scenes. They also have very unexpected plot twists that will shock you that it happened. They also take place in a very creepy setting and both involve murders that happened at schools. This is a really good series to watch and I recommend to all horror fans.
Both animes are about a bunch of students who are in a school where a lot of mysterious deaths happen. These deaths seem to be the result of a curse. Other similarities are that both include ghosts in some way and that a lot of students end up dying eventually. However, there's more gore in Corpse Party than in Another.
Did you looooove Anothers gore scenes? Well step right up to probably the grand mester of gore, Corpse Party.
If you on the other hand saw Corpse Party... well. Another has some really great gore scenes but just watch the uncensored version of the scenes on youtube, you don´t need to go through Another XD
Both feature cursed schools, unraveling mysteries, creative deaths, gratuitous gore, and the awareness that no character is safe.
Bonus: you could exchange the theme songs and it would work either way.
But wait, there's more:
Siblings! Loss! Frustration! Blood all over the school! Ensemble casts! An emphasis on counting!
If you like gore that will make you want to throw up yet you actually enjoy a good horror story that isn't all jumpscares, than these two animes are for you! The characters are all well made and the art style is easy to look at. The story is also very well done and it makes it worth watching. It doesn't even take that long to finish!
They are similar because they both have a lot of death scenes. They are both pretty gruesome and very dramatic. You feel sorry for the characters who die and they contain a tiny bit of love. They are both scary but they both have those happy moments as well.
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.
It must be acknowledged that both Another and Mirai Nikki are similar in more ways than one can imagine. Coincidentally, both Another and Mirai Nikki are of the fantasy genre as well as the horror genre. The fact these anime's share both of my favourite genre's is enough to lead me in, but there's more. Also, both of these anime's have the same themes present within them. These themes consist of death and teenagers. These themes continue throughout every episode. Both are very dark and have similar characters. I shall explain further. Mirai Nikki's main central focus is around a girl. This is also subsequent of the anime, Another. They both also have the sub-protagonist of a male in both anime's. The male in both anime's also helps further the plot, by being the female's goal. Both anime's also have exquisite art. I would highly recommend this anime if you liked and loved Another, and vise versa. read more
•Both have a guy and a girl pairing focused on as the main characters
•both have supporting characters dieing/murdered around them as the anime progresses
•both question the existence of humanity, if one wants to survive in this game/curse, they have to do what ever it takes to win/solve to keep themselves from dieing.
•both have horror in it, that is cringe worthy, and the mystery is more exposed in Another, but mirai nikki is questionable.
•they are similar in the mystery deaths/murders/killings and those who love to watch people die
Both are well made shows involving mass death and killing. The two also both involve a female lead who is nice, but seems a little too willing to kill people when necessary. It also involves a death of many main and supporting characters, as well as each of those characters killing each other. The relationship between the two main characters is similar, where the boy likes the girl and knows she's misunderstood, and she likes him, but there's a hint of distrust.
Both series are very dark and based on horror. The main character in both series is boy who comes in contact with a certain girl that changes his life (and that of everybody else) completely. The element of mystery that suround the story in both series makes in one hell of a ride that will have you marathoning episode after episode in order to know what happens next. If you like gore and situations where people have to fight for their lives, these series are perfect for you.
Mirrai Nikki and Another is similar in the sense that it is all mystery, thriller, and somewhat school-relatred. They both contain death of many people related to the game(Mirrai Nikki) and the curse(Another).
If you enjoy horror I would recommend Mirai Nikki
These series are known to have dark atmospheres, suspense, and horror. As the main characters (usually a boy and a girl) progress, they mostly survive these obstacles, but several other characters either, become missing or get killed off in the end. If you are a big fan of horror and suspense, then these two will fit your time.
Mirai Nikki is based on competition and is mostly action where the characters use a phone as their weapon. Another is based on a mysterious girl gallivanting around the school with a strange horror phenomenal around them.
They're both about a killing game - Mirai Nikki is survival-oriented but Another is deaths at random. There's a fair bit of gore in both of them, and they both have psychological thriller elements. Music is also similar.
Both Mirai Nikki and Another are based on a group of people being picked off one by one, the whole event caused by a supernatural force. They're both complex and tricky to follow at times, and have some real gory deaths.
Both consist of weak plots which easily fall apart just by the main characters asking questions, they'll have you trying to wrap your head around how characters could be so stupid. Both feel like everything happening is contrived nonsense. But they both made me laugh, I don't know if it was on purpose or not but whatever.
Even though the stories are different, the similarities are defined in the horror. Both anime's tend to build up some sort of suspense as the series comes to an end, and as a complex story starts to unroll, it really does get your imagination to go somewhere.
Horror, gore, great plots and unfolding storyline. This is a great horror anime that is a must watch for anyone who aren't sensitive to blood and gore.
With intense splatter and great mystery, both these series had me pinned to my TV for the whole show.
Another will, just like Elfen Lied, have you constantly switch sides and give you a hard time "choosing sides" since new information and unexpected discoveries makes you doubt what you thought about the characters so far.
Sit back and enjoy the bloodbath that awaits you!
both similar animes include horror style.they have a fair amount of blood and secret files. Elfen Lied is more violent and bloody while Another have a big amount of mystery.if you like mind blowing animes then these animes have complicate plots
Both are about killing without using hands but in Death Note the killer is the main but in Another the killer is unknown :> but you shall know at the end
in death note they have eyes to see names of other people in Another Misaki has an eye to see the dead people and nearly dead ... both are amazing.
They're similar in the sense that people are dying in the local area and the cause is unknown to the locals which creates some kind of word of mouth legend. With Another, it's set in a school and you don't know the killer. With Death Note, the anime is from the killer's, Kira's, perspective. The only difference I would say is that Death Note has more aspects of detective work than horror.
They're smiliar in how they always makes you try to figure out what's going to happen, how they kind of have a detective story going on and it's all revolving around death. They are both amazing animes and if you like one be sure that you'll like the other!
both series deal about mysteries, dramas, thrillers, and tend to have a climate envolvente.bons characters with similar psychological profile.
hope you enjoy watching. Good anime and manga at all. sayonara ;)
both Death.Note and Another have unique mysterious supernatural mixed with horror
wonderful perfect story and character development
strange deaths and the main characters investigating about it
they have same atmospheres and background and it's too dark
i think they also have similar drawings and styles
If you like the creepy aesthetic, and the thriller aspect of Death Note you may enjoy Another. The narrative is completely different, but it's just as much of a thriller in my opinion. It's also a horror anime though, so be prepared for that.
Both series have a high school boy protagonist joined by an unusual female student who goes overlooked or is ignored by others (Another because of curse-related superstitions, Tasogare Otome because she's a ghost), and deal with the frightening and dangerous results of curses and superstitions relating to their school. Overall they both have a similar dark ambiance and ocassional disturbing moments, resulting in both series giving off a similar feeling.
They both have a supernatural/horror element while involving a very peculiar girl who is in a way directly connected to the supernatural element. Besides that they both have some mysteries, both stories develop in a high school and they both have a dark atmosphere.
Revolves around the similar theme of someone who already has died but keeps their presence in the world of the living. Another has a more serious tone while Tasogare Otome x Amnesia has more comedy. Both series however involves mystery.
They are both similar in the sense that in both shows someone has died but has comeback. They're both horror/supernatural/mystery with some romance ( well dusk maiden more). I honestly liked them both if I had to choose I prefer Dusk Maiden of Amnesia just because of the comedy added to it as well.
Both animes pass in the school year. In both the people of class thinks that a curse is being pursuing them. In both animes an air of mystery was breathing, but, in Tasogare, exists a lot of comedy and the ghost main character is real, isn't created by the teenagers, but the real story of Tasogare is very seriously, and we will discover it as they go chapters.
Ambos animes pasan durante la edad escolar. En los dos la gente de la clase piensa que una maldición se está llevando a cabo en ellos. En ambos animes un aire de misterio se respirando, pero, en Tasogare, existe mucha comedia y el personaje principal fantasma es real, no es creado por los adolescentes, pero la verdadera historia de Tasogare es muy seria, y la vamos a descubrir a medida que avanzan los capítulos. read more
I found these shows to be alike in their atmosphere. Another and Mayoiga are very eerie and set a certain uncomfortable (something bad is going to happen) atmosphere. Mayoiga and Another are both uncovering a secret about a village/class and indulge in mystery. Another is more horror geared than Mayoiga that's more mystery based.
Group of people trying to figure out what is going on because strange occurrences started happening. Going through all kinds of hardships and trust issues between friends in progresses on finding answers.
- Both have a (specific) female character who is the most suspicious
- And both have a main character who is determined to solve the mystery/mysteries, and want to protect the most accused female
- Both mystery and have a bit of horror (thriller, and drama too)
- Lots of accusations in both shows
- Both have mysterious events, incidents, disappearances, and deaths
- Cliffhangers and plot twists in both shows
- Both have an eerie and dark atmosphere (same vibe)
+ Both has a lot of characters for such short [12 episodes each] shows
+ Both started to build hilarious mystery from ep 1...
+ Both tried to be dark/edgy/mature(??) in which people suffer [ Another was better at this than Mayoiga ]
+ Both female MC's are weird....and their Male counterparts also....
+ Both have cliffhangers at every episode [ which is great btw ]
+ Funny character interactions...idk that was fun to watch... you'll be entertained...
- Salty haters a.k.a Critics = I know that you don't like nonsensical plot, but to hate these shows so much just for that??? idk, probably you don't like to turn off your brains for a while and enjoy the shit out of them....especially with Mayoiga, when you must look at it with different point of view....  read more
I'd say that both have the same thriller vibe, where unsuspecting people would die one after the other, but I do have to say that Another has more to offer than Mayoiga in terms of thriller, cu'z Mayoiga is more of a mystery thriller. Never the less both were promising.
The general feel to both is these anime is very similar. If you liked the dark and horror in one of these series, you will probably enjoy the other one two because they are very similar when it comes to this. Both series also contain a character with an eyepatch but that's just a detail. If you like series with horror and a lot of mysterious elements, then you have just found two perfect anime for yourself!
Both Another and Tokyo Ghoul has a supernatural element, questioning the aspect of "humanity" to a certain extent, is gory and has a beautiful beautiful haunting soundtrack. Differences is that Another is mystery/horror whereas TG is more dark fantasy.
I recommend Another, because it has a pretty interesting/creepy story plot. There aren't any fighting scenes, but it's crime/mystery/supernatural based. The main characters develop their personality through the anime and I can say it's really worth to watch.
Both series take place in and around an abnormal school, with its students trying desperately to understand their situation with deaths taking place pretty much constantly. In Angel Beats! death is cheap (and impermanent), but Another plays for keeps.
The main purpose why I've chosen to suggest you watch Angel Beats is because these 2 anime really have a lot of common; characters' setup, atmosphere, etc. I mean, when you are watching it, you feel the same tranquility, though Another has some elements of mystery, horror... But, let's get back to the main matter; if you really liked Another( I think that I'm absolutely right), you must see Angel Beats because these two anime are masterpieces and, AB is even more wonderful than Another.
These two anime series are similar at the start. A girl is somewhat lonesome, and a guy goes and talks to her even when the others tell him that he shouldn't do so, which eventually leads to a chain of events that the protagonists would need to risk their lives to stop. Very similar but completely different storyline each with their own deep meaning, which are very fitting to the story.
A boy new to the area is welcomed by a group of people and are befriended by them. A girl that everyone pretends she doesn't exist, isn't seen by anyone. The boy befriends the girl and his friends wouldn't allow a dead person to be friends with the boy.
Not sure if its truly right to compare something so early in its debut but
Judging purely from episode 1 of Another, both series' share:
- a similar eery atmosphere
- psychological horror genre?
- a dark mystery in need of uncovering
- a similar look, use of music and mood
- a main male protagonist who has had a death in the family
Supernatural phenomenon or ghost stories have been one of our greatest interest. Both anime offers that element, wrapped with a solid story which will makes us wonder, what would happen next and you will push the next button continuously.
The mystery element is also intriguing and plays an important role in developing both stories.
a kid comes to live in a rural town and is greeted by his class with open arms.
also the town is f---ed up but no biggie.
supernatural stuff happens
people are "mysteriously" disappearing every episode
MC should have GTFO'd out of there ASAP
Both series revolves around the main protagonist moving to a new town and mysteries taking place. Psychological, mystery, and horror themes are present in both series as strange incidents occurs as each episode moves on.
Both anime involve a newcomer to the area with similar circumstances (everyone welcomes him, both look similar, want to find out more about strange events which have been happening, etc). Both anime also have a theme of death surrounded by mysterious circumstances.
In both animes, a boy comes to live in a new town and his class welcomes him with open arms. Also, mysterious events(deaths and disappearances) start to happen. As the series go on, the boy finds himself involved in something supernatural. Both of them have a thrilling atmosphere and agonizing feelings.
Most of the show is inscrutable plot exposition, but when it comes time for bitches to die, you get your money's worth, no doubt.
It takes quite a bit longer for the mayhem to kick in in Blood-C, but once it does, it's pretty brutal.
You like blood and gore? Yeah, both series offer that. Some characters also seem very similar to each other. In my opinion, both of these series also kick some major booty. So that's how they're similar. *shrug* That's about it. Hope you enjoy 'em! :D
Both of these anime series involves a small town or community where mysterious murders takes place. Of course from there, you can expect blood being spilled in both series as the mystery and psychological themes begin to take hold.
Both series also revolves around the school setting and the main character tries to put an end to the deaths.
Both series also contain horror themes and gore so expect violence, freak accidents, and death. If you can take all those, then these two anime series will be a good watch.
In both anime, the main character meets a mysterious girl and the pair finds themselves in the middle of danger (in Another, a deadly curse - in Denpateki, a string of serial killings as well as a cult-like prankster group). The investigations build up similar atmospheres; though Denpateki is a bit more serious than Another, they both take a look into the psychology behind the characters and each has its fair share of death/gore/crazy people/plot twists.
Two works of terror, carried out by 2 school boys, a strange girl, which the protagonist suspected of her. These kids are wrapped up in the mysteries that live around them, and will try to find an answer to their questions. A supernatural air can be felt by mixing the anguish, the terror of the human being and the daily life of the characters trying to keep going, although they hide chilling secrets, after each death, after each case
They are both of the mystery/horror genre, although another has more horror and also a supernatural element that Kanojo doesn't have. They both contain plot twists and somehow give a similar vibe. Although Another is a lot longer.
Both series contain the following genres
About the protagonists
Both count on a mysterious past
Are attracted and betrayed by dangerous people.
A boy and a girl as protagonists.
The girls are withdrawn and without many friends.
People close to the protagonists begin to die.
Deadman Wonderland and Another heavily revolve around death. The protagonists in both series deal with different types of lethal misfortune that they have no control over, and a strange mysterious girl who they befriend. There is a lot of blood in both anime (which I can't go into without revealing spoilers).
Although it isn't a horror anime like Another, Hyouka is an excellent anime for those who like mystery. And while for some people Another was lacking in romance/relationships, Hyouka's characters grow and change throughout it. Maybe I'm grasping at straws here because this is my first recommendation, but I think Hyouka is a better version of Another with deeper characters, less blood, and a better plot.
Personally, I find that Hyouka and Another have a similar atmosphere, despite the fact one is a horror and the other is a mystery. Both aren't very lively or comical, neither do they rely on fanservice.
-Almost depressive character with a lead role
-Finding answers plays a large part of the storyline
-One is horror, the other is mystery
-One of which has a highly energetic character
-Hyouka has a slightly notable romantic element
If you've watched either of these, I'm pretty sure you'll also like the other due to the similar feel and foundation behind each.
Mystery/romance; Another is much more bloody, gorey, and creepy than Hyouka, but still a mystery romance nonetheless. Main hetero couple has personality reversal compared to Hyouka, though. Also, there's a lot less romance. But it still takes place at a school.
Both are thriller/suspense dealing with the supernatural. Both have an ominous and eerie atmosphere. Another was the first series Shinsekai Yori reminded me of. That's gotta account for something, right? lol
While these two shows may seem very different at face value, they have quite quite a lot of similarities. To briefly point out their differences, Shinsekai Yori is much more science fiction/fantasy oriented where as Another is horror. On the other hand (looking at similarities now) Shinksekai Yori does retain a similar horror vibe as "Another". The scary moments in Shinsekai Yori, similar to Another, are centred around the setting and have a lot to do with a classroom environment.
The whole school-life setting amidst the fantastical world the characters dwell in is strongly appealing in Shinsekai Yori and the school aspect of it is also very similar to Another.  read more
Both of these horror anime have a similar eerie vibe and atmosphere. Both have settings revolving around kids from the school disappearing. A shred of consistent mystery surrounds the plot. The character drawings and animation also look rather similar.
Both series contain plenty of mystery revolving around mysterious deaths and suspense. Both series' plots are twisted and contain plot holes as confusion and horror spreads as the episode progresses.
Both series contain a cast of characters that begin to lose themselves in hopelessness as the murders continues in unfit matters. Additionally, some of the murders are graphic and increasingly violent as the death count toll piles up.
If you like Umineko no Naku Koro ni, you will like also Another. Both stories have an enigmatical environment and the main character has to discover the answer to a mystery that seems to be impossible to solve. Both of them have something strange and the plot is very interesting. There are many inexplicable deaths. If you like the mysteries and detective i suggest you to watch Another.
Similar feel, but Another is more dark. Both anime is of a class of students who are all have a risk of dying and in both anime the class has to find the 'special' person, where in Danganronpa it is the murderers but in Another it is the 'Extra' one. Also, both a bloodbath of an anime.
In essence, both these series contain the elements of horror, mystery, and the thriller like feelings when you watch its progressing episodes. In other words, there are some cliffhangers that leaves the viewers wondering "what will happen next?"
At any rate, Another and Ghost Hunt are similar in a variety of ways. Both series contains a school like setting where mystery is present. Additionally, the main protagonist is accompanied by a girl throughout the series with all the strange phenomenon going around.
Both series although different in terms of story structure builds itself through suspense, horror, and mystery.
Both series' characters are also teenagers and thus has an urge to be curious and solve complications going around them despite the potential dangers. Both series overall should be an entertaining watch for those into detective fiction with a little added horror and thriller like ending vibes to them.  read more
As you may infer from the title it's about Ghost Hunting. A group of people are contacted by various people to check out the ghostly thing that are happening to either their house of around them. The case are intriguing and awesome which you can also try to solve with the characters. One thing I love about the cases are that they are not cliches or boring old ghost stories.
Both share horror themes. While the deaths are not similar, the victims died of an unfortunate fate regardless of the situation. Ghost Hunt in addition has somewhat better storytelling and certain cases within the series are truly horrific.
Just check the cover... Need I say more? lol... Just kidding...
In all seriousness though..
* Both have weird Female lead
* Both of them have an eye Patch
* Both Male lead are almost identical
* Both series required a whole new level of imagination to be created
* Both series will leave you clueless in a different way though for each of them
* Both series are so alike yet so different :D
Guaranteed though that everyone will enjoy both..
They are both short, 12 episode animes that take place in a school setting. The female protagonists both have a thing for eye patches and are considered "unusual" or alienated by their classmates. They both behave differently from everyone else and manage to drag the male protagonists into their strange sphere of influence, thereby setting him apart from his fellow peers as well. As time passes the boys naturally dissolve into the unusual world that the girls are "trapped" in and become a pillar of support for them. The happiness of the girls becomes the boys' primary goal above all else.
1. Main character with a physical illness moves to the countryside.
2. He befriends a girl who is an outcast/bullied by the social group they belong to.
3. He protects the girl even though he doesn't know her backstory.
Whilst watching Another I was thinking how similar it was to H20, it wasn't the story line but more the characters. You have the boy who is sick and moves to the country side and the classmates who keep secrets, as well as the girl who is treated different from the rest of the class. H20 is what Another would be without Horror.
They both revolve around a weak, clueless protagonist who moves to a new, isolated town as a transfer student. In both, he befriends a girl who everybody else hates and ignores because of the village's customs and beliefs.
Both have the same thriller, Horror, School, mystery, where one individual is a jinx who bring the curse to his classmates, and one after the other kicks the bucket in very strange circumstances...........
Lots of people are going to die in these shows. In another, it's kind of like final destination, with most people dying natural deaths (lightning, burning, crushed etc.). In Ousama Game, people are given tasks on their phone, and if they don't do the task within 24 hours starting at midnight, the person dies.
First of all, it's all about the suspense and the atmosphere of the anime! The creepiness and awesomeness and all the exciting mysteries and... ah! *fakes cough* What I mean to say it, they're both amazing ;3
The two anime pertain a gore and mystery genres. In both you can see a big grade of kills, mutilations, and things they can make you vomit, but in Corpse party more than Another. The stories pass in a high school which have a curse, and the teenagers are being killed by her. You should search this anime without censor because it if have censor, this anime will turn a piece of shit.
Los dos animes pertenecen al gore y misterio. En los dos se puede ver un gran grado de muertes, mutilaciones y cosas que pueden hacerte vomitar, pero en Corpse Party mucho más que en Another. Las historias pasan en una escuela secundaria que tiene una maldición, y los adolescentes están siendo asesinados por ella. Deberías buscar este anime sin censura, ya que si tiene, este anime se volverá un pedazo de mierda. read more
Both dealing with unnatural phenomenons and surrounded in mystery. The emotional leaps and ecchi that were in Steins;Gate are not present in Another, but I would say you should at least give it a shot. I enjoyed it.
Both have great and detailed animation that gives a lot to the atmosphere of anime and feeling. Lots of action, fights, deaths, blood and gore. Ajin has more of terrorism and killing, whilst Another has some detective horror story.
They both have that element of mystery and suspense which keeps you on the edge of your seat through both series. Another and Ajin both are pretty gruesome anime at times, but believe it when I say these types of anime are the best.
Both deal with figuring out "Who is the person that doesn't belong?"
In Rokka no Yuusha's case, it's figuring out who the seventh person is when there's only supposed to be six. In Another, there's an extra person in the class and no one knows who it is.
- Both are mystery anime that have you constantly thinking along with the show trying to work things out and piece things together
- Both are supernatural anime
- Both have 12 episodes
- Both are great shows
Both Gantz and Anther are similar in terms of mysterious settings,and unique horror style.Gantz focus on violence and deadly battles while Another have a very dark atmosphere.i think the only difference between these shows is the main story but i guess if you like one then you should at least see the other one..
Both the protagonists have secrets in their family that help drive the stories to their conclusion and the final ending. It is a dark Gothic with lots of death and a nice mystery of trying to figure out the bigger picture.
Both anime's involve the main character that has a strange eye colour than everyone else,
which makes them able to see dead people and spirits (good or bad)
The setting revolves around mysterious happenings at school or at other places and with their specialty, they are able to help others out with there problems.
Horror series featuring a mysterious girl and an ordinary boy trying to discern and overcome the supernatural circumstances plaguing them. The plots are quite different, but the creepy ambiance pervading both is remarkably similar.
Both of these anime's fall under the horror, supernatural, and thriller genre! Both female protagonists have black haired, red eye color, and lack showing emotions. Both anime's have a big deal that revolve around the idea's of death and curses. And both are very entertaining and mystical to watch!
The mood of the 2013 adaptation of Rozen Maiden has a similar feeling in comparison to Another. Otherwise, there's also the themes of dolls present in both series as well as a mysterious atmosphere. Both series also deals with a normal boy whose life becomes abnormal after a faithful day.
Both series' OP song are also handled by ALI PROJECT.
In essence, both series are handled by the same producer, P.A. Works. Hence, the characters' designs are a bit similar. But beyond that, the atmosphere of both shows shares a few similarities. They seem to be calm and shrouded by mystery.
The main female protagonist has somewhat similar personalities in being rather in the dark and not too outgoing around others.
Both series also takes place in a school life setting.
There is a mysterious type of feeling going around the background that invites questions which needs answers.
Another and Aku no Hana give off the same eerie feeling, they're both very real and psychological, and have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what may or may not happen. Another is more shifted in the horror category where as Aku no Hana lies deeply in the Psychological.
Both series have a group of characters who are dying one by one with seemingly no way to stop it except possibly by killing off one member of the group, who's identity is unknown. Both series focus on finding out how this situation came to be and how to stop it, all the while the bodies keep piling up.
In Danganronpa 3 Mirai-hen all deaths are caused by humans, while in Another there is a supernatural reason for these deaths and they are 'accidents'.
Both are centered around a younger crowd and have a dark artistic style to them. The story lines themselves aren't particularly similar but the style is simalar. Another is atmospherically darker. Madoka may feel at first like it's too "pink" but it gets darker very quickly and becomes very interesting.
Both have good and detailed animation, a bit of realistic feeling from Another and a whole lots of it from Monster. Detective, horror, psychological story with lots of action, mystery solving and development ( well Monster is by all means better, but another has a bit of it too)
An atmosphere of dark mystery pervades both series. The story in each develops gradually with intermittent instances of shock and revelation. The character development also has a similar feel as each person struggles with internal conflicts and an uncertain trust in those around them.
Both have a high level of mystery and the complete picture isn't revealed until the very end. The rumor/legend aspects and high school protagonists also give a similar feel. Another is more violent, although both have horror aspects. Boogiepop is more mature in its story telling and is more approachable for adult viewers.
The main character is introduced to a situation and setting in which everyone is in danger of dying by otherworldly means, and has to try to escape from the situation. In order to achieve this, they must figure out a) what the fuck is going on and b) who is behind it all. Both animes start with a large group of characters but by the end most have been thinned out and few survive. Another's ending and answer to the mystery is pretty conclusive... but King of Thorn just leaves you with more unanswered questions.
Caos, misterio, terror y ganas de más. Son algunas de las sensaciones que esta joya nos puede dejar al final de verla, desde el minuto 1 este anime hara que entre en tu cuerpo una intriga que probablemente no te sacie incluso con la resolución final.
Chaos, mystery, terror and insatiability.This are some feelings this little gem can give us after whatching it, from the first minute, intrigue will be built inside you and will probably not be satisfied even after the end
They both have a boy and a girl MC
There are plot twists
A bit of mystery surrounding the MC
They both involve death
One of MC from both series has a special ability
Everything ties together
They have the same base, everybody wants a person to disappear (better said "to die"), but the main character decides to get to know that person better and protect her. The difference is, Another is a bit more creepy and Akuma no Riddle is a bit of a shoujo-ai.
Contains that psychological feeling that you get after watching both series as the Protagonist gets paranoid. It also has that thriller-like style where each episode leaves off on some sort of cliffhanger that leaves the viewers wondering "what's going to happen next?"
Everyone seems to be targeted by supernatural phenomenons. Our main characters must solve the mystery behind it. Prevent deaths to come. Both series having that chilling like horror feel. Dark, gory, and thriller. The Opening theme song for both series is very haunting.
In both, Another and Kara no Kyoukai (all 7 films), you get the same feeling, that creepy and scary feeling. Both are masterpieces in their genre (horror, supernatural, etc.) and they are worth your time to watch them. They also have gore parts in where you can see how the person is actually dying, or how their extremities are cut and stuff. As I just said, they're masterpieces that no one should miss.
If you longing for a mesmerizing artworks from P.A. Works, 'Another' will give you a gloomy and mysterious (opposite to Hanasaku's calming and nostalgic) yet realistic atmosphere due to it's wonderful artworks
Both have mystery elements and an assailant who is after multiple characters in the show. Another is far more gory/gruesome but there are a fair share of bloody scenes in Kotoura-San. Both also involve high school daily life but with a twist.
Both are psychological and horror, contain hidden plot twists that become apparent over time, and have gruesome scenes (although there are more in Pupa). Both main guys are involved in something (larger), and both contain death.
While "Another" is more horror and "Ansatsu Kyoushitsu" - more humorous, both stories involve a class which is being avoided by others. These two animes also involve a certain "ritual", which is done by the whole class, for example killing Koro-sensei in "Ansatsu Kyoushitsu" and ignoring a certain student in "Another".
They are both about a MC that recently moved to a small village without knowing the backstory of it. They both give the same atmosphere when watching and you can relate both of these anime very strongly.
they are murder mysteries, and when I watched Another, i continually thought "i should watch Paranoia Agent again"
and to be honest, how the victims die is hilarious, dying in ways that would have a 1:500 chance happening [Another] and dying by a "little kid" [PA], is just funny as hell.
Besides art style being pretty similar, themes and atmospheres of both animes coincide with each other, especially during about episode 6 on from Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi when more of a school genre is introduced. Both series can get emotiona and deal with mystery solvingl as well with themes of death however, Another is much more darker than Kamisama while Kamisama is much more emotional.
Both have the same basic premise: A teenage male transfer student comes to a new town and meets a beautiful, strange, and nonetheless intriguing heroine. Denpa is more comedy and harem with some sci-fi, while Another plays with the horror genre. Both are awesome.
