Both series are about an offbeat high school boy and his supernatural girlfriend, with plot elements including attempts to better understand her unusual situation and dark past, their developing relationship, and her desire to be a normal girl. Sankarea is overall lighter in tone compared to Tasogare Otome, but they both have serious and dramatic moments in spades.
Both anime are somewhat similar because the female MC's are not normal human being, the girl in sankarea is a zombie while in tasogare the girl is a ghost. Both anime are good and has a similar feeling when you watch it.
+Both have Horror, Romance, School, Shounen, Supernatural Genre.

Both series features the theme of the supernatural and undead as the main female protagonist bonds with the male protagonist after certain events.
Both series contains a story that is mixed with drama, comedy, some ecchi, emotions, and romance.
Both series has a similar feeling.
Both anime have an unusual coupling. In Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, its boy-ghost, while in Sankarea, the love interest is boy-zombie. They were both also released and ended around the same time. However, the animation styles are a little different but the main girl characters look similar.
+ Romance stories about high school students, and the brought-back-to-life female lead
+ Similar mixes of comedy, drama, and a little horror
- The girl in Amnesia is a ghost who can only be seen by a few people while in Sankarea the girl is a zombie
- Amnesia has much more of a school setting and a much bleaker atmosphere while Sankarea takes place in more places and has more fanservice
Getting an undead girl friend and helping them with their undead problems. Nice drama and romance for each of them.
Both get pretty dark at some point. In Dusk Maiden the girl starts just teasing the few people who can see her and discovering how she died, why she hasn't moved on, and discovering her dark side which keeps her here. In Sankarea it quickly gets to why the girl wants to die and become a zombie, the rest being dealing with a person stuck inside a corpse and can't be shown off too much.
I first watch Sankarea and loved it till the last moment, later I found Tasogare Otome x Amnesia and went into it thinking it would be almost as good as Sankarea. It did not disappoint me with how it turned out.
Personal score: Sankarea 10/10 Tasogare Otome x Amnesia 9/10
Sankarea and Tasogare Otome x Amnesia involve a girl that has died.
The comedy is funny and will make you laugh through episodes.
Very different romance anime.
Sankarea is a very unique anime that you will probably wont see anything close it to.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia is also unique in its own way.
Both shows revolve around a romance where one character is no longer of the living. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia (Tasogare Otome x Amnesia) follows a boy who falls in love with a ghost while Sankarea is about a boy who's love interest becomes a zombie. Tasogare Otome has the darker atmosphere of the two shows, while Sankarea has a much brighter look. Tasogare Otome has more of the ghost story feel where Sankarea is more a love story.
Both follow a blooming romance between a regular human and a supernatural being (zombie in Sankarea, ghost in Tasogare) and the hardships that come with a relationship like this. They are both comedic, dramatic, and romantic, however Tasogare does have themes of horror involved as well, while Sankarea is on the lighter side.
These anime are extremely similar as they are both focused on a main character helping a 'dead' girl to adjust and face their demons.
Amnesia seemed a bit darker than Sankarea to me and deals with a more mental issue.
If you liked Tasogare Otome x Amnesia there is a good chance that you may like Sankarea.
-The mc is atracted to occult(In Tasogare Otome x Amnesia the mc is intrested in ghosts,in Sankarea in zombies)
-Both anime are about loving something different,non-human
-Tasogare Otome x Amnesia has a more tragic ending than Sankarea and the relantionship between the mc and the undead girl(ghost/zombie) advances more.
P.S:I'm bad at writing recommandations
In death, they found a reason to live. Both shows have the same aura in the way they portray the afterlife. Sankarea has a pleasantly morbid narration and Tasogare Otome is a story of inner conflict, yet both take a similar approach to how they allow the characters to grow. A thoughtful and mellow watch.
Both series are soooo~ similar where the only differents are the MC's female, one of them is a ghost while the other is a zombie
Totally recommend if you're an avid horror fan but don't expect anything highly :D
It's a good romance that's actually technically necrophilia, but we don't talk about that.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia was one of the first anime I've really had to binge watch because I was enveloped in the story, and while it turns darker than Sankarea further on, they're still both enjoyable romances that are technically necrophilia
MC's both deal with the supernatural quite well and it makes sense considering their outsider status.
The main females are both beautiful and strange, giving the romance plots similar feels despite the stories and themes of the shows being quite different.
Both shows have ecchi elements but in a more sexy and mature way (esp in Monogatari's case) than most anime can manage to pull off.
My goodness its hard to believe that studio deen made such a nice looking anime (sankarea) that it almost look like Shaft made it (people who made bakemonogatari). The animation is so alike with bakemonogatari being more uppaced with its scene changes and being a bit more unconventional but this show to (Sankarea) looks like it has alot in store for us.
The main characters are somewhat similar in personality. The style of the show is also quite similar, although Bakemonogatari has a serious plot with comedy spread throughout, whilst Sankarea has a serious plot in the beginning and comedy at the end.
Both has that same atmosphere where they talk about some awesome stuff that I can't describe very well with an awesome music in the background . Watch first few episodes of both , you will feel the same way . Also the artwork .
These to anime have a very similar pace and atmosphere. They both deal with the supernatural, and helping the main love interest with a sort of supernatural ailment. The artwork is similar in both. Also, the main characters are similar in the way they talk, and in their random perversion.
Characters deal with the supernatural with a similar atmosphere and artstyles, featuring fanservicy shots.
One has a focused straight normal relationship, while the other is pretty much "harem", think about that.
Bakemonogatari doesn't show nudity like Sankarea's level, but the latter shows 25% less fanservice in quantity.
Bakemonogatari mostly focuses on "arrebations" and vampires. Sankarea instead makes it's direction into zombies.
There's a mystery involving on each character on Bakemonogatari compared to just one in Sankarea.
Both have somewhat likable male protagonists (Araragi and Chihiro), and both anime take a similar general direction, complete with oddity girls and the random [insert here] banter and perfectly executed fanservice and comedy.
If you're fan of comedy involving supernatural beings or certain day when a normal character becomes abnormal, then Sankarea and Blood Lad are two series that should be worth a try.
They both involve the concept in which a normal character who recently died returns to life but no longer are the same as they are before. They must adjust to their new living conditions and often faces new strange twists with the "life" they live now.
Both series has a lot of comedy and fun dialogues. The character interactions are also amusing to watch. At the same time, expect little bits of romance development along with supporting characters that also gets caught into the mix. read more
They both have the same goofy comedy but yet serious moments. Although, the romance in these are not the same, i believe the obsessions are. The two main characters show similar traits and i felt like i was watching almost the same thing as Blood Lad. The women in these shows are similar as well as being shy and clueless, but independent in a way you can't oversee. Overall, the comedy is way to similar too miss, in my opinion.
After watching both, I was able to conclude that these two anime had a lot in common, even more so then some of the other recommendations for these shows (considering I've watched a good portion of them).
I especially found that the characters are fairly similar, Staz and Chihiro are similar in the sense that they are both otaku's and have a love for women that are outside of their respective species. Those species being zombies (although technically just un-dead humans; in Chihiro's case) and humans (in Staz's case). Although Staz has powers and Chihiro doesn't, I still felt they shared several similarities.Then there's the love interests which both happen to be kind-hearted, blue eyed black haired high school girls. They both become something other than what they started off as (which was human), and both seem to have this ditzy and kind personality.And then, there's the non-love interests , which are ironically very similar appearance wise (blonde, green eyes, with large breasts) as they are personality wise; loud, bossy and pushy. They also both share an unrequited love for the main protagonist.
All-in-all these shows both have a slowly progressing romance, comedy, and a supernatural aspect. Although Sankarea is more focused on drama with little action, while Blood Lad tends to have more action/fighting scenes as, they are still pretty similar besides that. I'd recommend this especially if you were a fan of the characters of Sankarea, which is the area I find these two anime to be the most similar in. read more
Blood lad is about vampire, with some actions and comedies. if in sankarea the normal(human being) one is MC(guy), but in blood lad, its heroine. both are quite samiliar, like running away from family.
Both anime felt as if the main girl was entering a new world (very true in Blood Lad) and having to go through a huge change which they then had to deal with. Blood Lad is more humorous and has more action though.
Both series involve around romantic comedy and the whole undead theme. Both male protagonists seems to have an indifferent attitude towards life but seems to later change through chance encounters with other various characters. Both series contains light hearted comedy and some fan-service to spice things up.
Both deal with one of the MC's becoming a zombie and dealing with life.
Is this a Zombie is more action based while Sankarea is more life based.
Both have at least a bit of romance in it while Sankarea focuses on it more.
Both are zombie animes,other than that these two are completley different.Sankerea is about trying to prolong a zombie girls life while Highschool of the Dead is just about escaping from the zombie infestation.But you dont find many zombie animes so if your a zombie fan like me you'll enjoy both.
Shikabane is almost like a darker Sankarea. The female character is even a dark version of the main female character in Sankarea. They're both daughters of wealthy families, they are both zombies, they both get close to the male the spend time with.
After being killed, both series involves the main character being bought back to life with a second chance although in undead fashion. Corpse Princess seems to be a bit more serious with a direct storyline while Sankarea is a bit more lighthearted with comedy. Expect drama, romance, and fantasy in both of these series.
Both Sankarea and Ano Natsu de Matteru are romance genre. The male protagonists falls in love with a girl that isn't human, and many things occurred to try to stop the male and female protagonists together. However, they still try their best to stay together.
This two are very similar in its way of presenting a tasteful romantic comedy. Both shows deal with the main character having romantic feelings for a supernatural being. Also, they similar in the sense that both shows also deal with a love-triangle along with their childhood friends.
Both start off as fairly lighthearted and innocent anime but quickly delve into more serious themes such as incest and pedophilia. Even though they are dealing with these mature topics, they never take things seriously and instead entertain with their quirky characters and comedic situations. In addition, both plots feature an unsuspecting male lead who suddenly has to take care of a girl desperately in need of his help. Overall, both have very similar vibes to them and I think that if you enjoyed one you will likely enjoy the other. Hell, I think Sankaera could easily be called "there's no way my little zombie could be this cute". read more
Both of these anime are about a girl adjusting to a 'new world' and being taken in by our protagonist (also a boy in C3). Both have a running romantic theme. Both of the main plots of these anime are reliant on the acceptance of the main character of the girl's odd quirks (like Rea being a zombie and Fear being cursed are quirks)
C3 is slightly heavier than Sankarea and puts more focus on side characters. This anime is also quite action packed.
The moment I saw the main female character I got Sankarea in mind, its very similar in drawing, personality and talking style, note both animes have completly different plot, sankarea consists in a zombie fanatic who wants to have a undead girlfriend and Flying Witch is a slice of life with a witch as the main character.
Although the differences I think if you liked Flying Witch and like zombies you will like Sankarea.
An odd boy ends up living with an already dead girl (a ghost in Ano Hana, a zombie in Sankarea). Note that the "odd" and "already dead" parts are portrayed differently. Then; as the days of living together go by, some romance starts to bloom.
The two are very different in what they're trying to be though. Ano Hana aims for drama while Sankarea aims for a romcom type of story.
-Both have main female character are same. Personality wise.
-Hiyori turned into half-spirit while Sankarea's main female character turned into a zombie.
-Hiyori grew a tail while Rea's eyes turn red.
-Both have a supernatural and romance genre.
-Main male characters are almost the same.
-Both animes have 12 episodes.
A supernatural romantic comedy where a the FMC, a sweet girl with daddy issues, suddenly becomes a supernatural being and is taken in by and taken care of by the MMC, her future love interest. While both comedies, Sankarea is a lot more serious while Kamisama Hajimemashita is mostly lighthearted with a small amount of drama.
If you like watching zombie in a cute and comedic manner, these shows are the best choice.
Keep in mind that Sankarea tend to focus on the romance and drama between the main characters, as opposed to Zombieland Saga which is using over-the-top comedy as its main selling point.
These two anime have a similar concept with a human falling in love with someone who is not a human/monster. They both focus on the idea on having feelings for someone who is not human and how it affects each other. These two anime also have comedy and a decent amount of blood. I think fans of one will definitely appreciate the other.
Main heroine is non-confident girl with "father" problems
Accidentally, she changes in mythical way (possessed by ghost / becomes zombie)
Male lead try care about her, they live in the same house
Energetic childhood friend inclining in their romantic development
Despite supenatural state, main heroine tries her best to live like normal human, that leads to comedy, drama and (ofcourse) ecchi
-Both Main females have a limited time left to live (Obviously)
-Both MC's love the Main Female
-Both Mail and Female MC's have no regrets
Why Plastic Memories is better (Opinion)
-Plastic Memories does have a proper ending, whereas Sankarea is left on a cliffhanger and you need to read the manga for a proper ending
-A lot more focus on their relationship then Sankaera (Aka more cute scenes)
Both Sankarea and Kokoro Connect present themselves as a supernatural romantic comedy - and they indeed are. However, on top of that, they also deal with a lot of darker and more serious drama; and blend these two aspects together very well. Both also entail a few people trying to keep a supernatural secret, exploring the depressing backstories of the main cast; and two female characters being in love with the male lead, though he only loves one of them.
Both main guy has to take care of a girl.
The difference between these two anime is that the girl in Dragon Crisis is a Dragon!
while the girl in Sankarea is a ZOMBIE!
Both anime is definitely worth watching and both anime deserve a second season!
Sankarea is about zombies yes, but it all starts with a boy ressurecting his pet cat he can't let go of. Nyan Koi! is about cut kitties yes, but it's also about pennance for a curse. These shows both have a great sense of humor, and in a way they're both about a 'cursed' main character. Also, they both deserved to be a season or two longer.
Sankarea reminds me a lot of Penguindrum. When watching the first few episodes I got that same wonderful feeling that I got when watching Penguindrum, that this anime was going to be great.
The hilarious thing is that Sankarea and Penguindrum both have Ryohei Kimura in it. Both anime also have storylines about parents who were abusive and the background music is very similar too. I am sure if you like Sankarea you will like Penguindrum and if you like Penguindrum you will like Sankarea :)
Despite the fact that one is shounen and the other is shoujo, they are actually quite similar to each other as far as the atmosphere and the way the shows ~feel~. The romance in both is slow and quite adorable. Rea and Sawako also have somewhat similar personalities.
Supernatural fills the void for both of these series.
In both anime(s), there is the female lead with a mystery. The MC of both series becomes friends of them and learns more about their character. Incidents happen and events foretold as episodes progresses.
There is comedy, romance, and a source of mixed in mystery about the main plot. Both series also takes place in a school-like setting.
There is an abnormal and obsessive love for someone, in Mirai Nikki Yuno for Yukki and in Sankarea the father of Rea for her, you will think that kind of love is not normal in both anime, if you want to see a crazy and obsessive love I recommend both.
Mirai Nikki is higher in that and darker and Sankarea has dark setting too but with more comedy and romance.
If you like the main protagonist and the kind of romantic relationship in one, I'm sure you'll like them in the other because Sankarea and speed grapher have very similar background setting for the main girl.
The premises are entirely different, but they do share some similarities
-the protagonist in both is a teenage boy
-both have comedy, drama, and supernatural aspects
-the girls in both come from extremely strict/weird families and live sheltered/unhealthy lives, and the boy protagonist tries to rescue/protect the girl from her family
Both animes have to do with a boy falling in love with a "monster" girl.
Both have to do with dangerous "monsters" and myths
Both have the MC looking after the girl
Pretty much the same as far as main couple go except Sankarea has zombies, while this one has demons
While ef - a tale of melodies has mainly the love story and the drama genres, Sankarea can't be complete without its zombies. Even though the anime are not similar in terms if the context of their story, I can only point out the likeness of two characters from each of the anime. That is Yuuko (from ef - a tale of melodies/memories) and Rea Sanka (from Sankara). I don't want to spoil any of the details, but let me just hint out that both grew up the same way. Either way, both are excellent anime. Enjoy.
The relationship between the main characters (girl and guy) are pretty much similar. They also have this same dark aura theme with romance (though Sankarea have these ecchi parts). These two are really great animes.
Supernatural vampire shows in which vampires look and behave nothing like how they were portrayed in the Western fantasies. In fact, vampires wear bright, colorful clothes and is not turned into beasts by their blood-lust.
Granted though, that Shiki is a dark show with very brutal scenes while Sankarea is much more light-hearted.
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru doesn't have anything related to zombies or the undead, but the love story moves on the same plot. Both anime tell about how the main protagonist treasures someone they love and how he tries to solve her problem.
Both main guy has to take care of a girl.
The difference between these two anime is that the girl in Chobits is a ROBOT!
while the girl in Sankarea is a ZOMBIE!
Both anime has dark theme and very serious drama and some ecchi moments. Although more comedy in Chobits
