The mindf*ck while playing a 'game' with lives on the line + same producing studios.

The animation in this is more on the loose side and the plot is more light hearted, but they both have a similar atmosphere. It's a short one shot that takes place in a bar where the main character learns something in the end.

Similar atmosphere, similar surrounding. Both take place in a beautiful Bar with a very calm Bartender. Both deal with different aspects of live.

In both of these series, after death people are put into a strange place, where they're forced to take part in a deadly game which real purpose they don't know. The reactions in face of dying (again?) are similar.

Both are short movies with plot twist and endings you couldn't expect. Both are parts of Anime Mirai project.

Both are short psychological movies where matter of life and death is the main theme. While in Death Billiards it´s about a game of life and death, in Kuro no Sumika it´s about grimm reapers. Both are part of Anime Mirai project.

Similar theme: Mystery, suspense, twists and thriller. In order to win your freedom, you must play a life or death game. The winner lives while the loser dies.

Both have a similar atmosphere, take place in an unusual bar/cafe and are in some way psychological.

Both have a guide to the afterlife. Psychological and both have the same feel. Stress and flashbacks everywhere.

You have to play a game in order to survive. It's the same ambiance, the same frustration in playing a game in which the rules are new to you.  
report Recommended by Tenori
A Guide helps them in a supernatural setting. Both have the same feel.

Well, to begin with, both anime have the main theme of psychology. There are twists and turns in the plot which leave you baffled and at the edge of your seat. On top of this, the Man in Death Billards and Light in Death Note both gradually spiral into insanity.
