the moment I saw Hyobu, he fitted right into the league of extremely evil bishounen Lelouch and Raitou. and he got his very own Suzaku too! confident, arrogant and style. is he really the good guy? a feeling of excitement and terror. supernatural eye powers. rebels. Both Geass and this brand new ESP series have it all!

In both series, there's the theme of superpower in a world that has both criminals and those who stops them. The main protagonist from both series carries out tasks with their group in such a world. Both series' main protagonist are cold, powerful, independent, and sometimes sarcastic. Both series features action, drama, some comedy, and has a mysterious like background surrounding the show especially in regards to the powers used by various characters.

Villainous main character who is the mastermind of a group of dangerous individuals. Both Koko and Hyoubu always have a sinister look about them.

The existence of espers and beings with supernatural abilities are prominent in both of these series. In fact, some of these individuals are considered dangerous to society. The main character in both series have similar personalities in being calculating, independent, and often does things on his own. He does have a partner though who aids him with various goals. Both series has action, drama, and a mysterious background to them. In addition, they have a similar mood to them involving organizations.

One of the main things that makes them similar is a whole super power thing. In both series we have a girl who can teleportate and a guy who can nullify any of those attacks.

Very similar powers and theme: This is for both Zettai Karen Children series and The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke series - We have an organization/ group similar to Professor X School for Mutants---ZKC-BABEL who want to create a world where Espers and Normals can coesist. Similar to Mutants and Humans in X-Men. Here they train Espers to use their powers for good while there are evil people who use them too. Another organization/ group similar to Magneto. In ZKC/Kyousuke is called PANDRA. PANDRA wants to recruit Esper who are being hated by humans and want to give them freedom. A place for them to use their powers without being  read more

pretty much the same premise. Some kids develop supernatural powers and theres a society trying to eliminate/capture or use them for their own benefit. Zetman does it better though.

-Both animes are quite action heavy -both anime have a somewhat serious tone -both have quite dark backgrounds -both main male characters are probably the strongest in their respective universes (though has to face some tough fights in the anime) If you like zettai karen children: unlimited you should check out hamatora as they both have similar feels. And for the following reasons listed above hamatora will most likely give a feel similar to zettai karen children. Though i would say that zettai karen children is a bit darker

In both worlds supernatural beings are being discriminated against. MC is trying to save mistreated by humans, although in Zettai Karen Children MC is not afraid to use force. You get the same feeling with Humans vs. Ghouls as with Humans vs. ESPs.

The feeling of the series is very similiar : "Dark". (Also to the main series "Darker than Black" is very similiar to The unlimited) And of course both animes are about special powers, like ESP. The main characters are neither good nor bad people - kinda in the "gray" zone, thats what makes the character developement interesting. And while Hyobu tries his best to save Yuugiri, and fulfill her wishes, Hei travels with Suou on his journey and is kinda a mentor to her.

-Both main character are overpowered. -Both anime have "magic powers" -Both anime have people who can be divided in two categories: normal people, and people with "magic powers" (Esper)

Humans vs. ESPs has got same vibe as Humans vs. Ghouls. MCs try to save mistreated people. Both are quite op with Zettai MC being stronger. Both are quite emotionless on outside but are kind and have desire to protect in their heart. Kaneki joins and Zettai MC creates organization to protect Ghouls / ESP.

I'm only on episode 5 of Guilty Crown, but so far this is what i can tell from it: Both main characters join a "criminal group" but both criminal groups turn out to be good. Both criminal groups adore their leader. Both main characters were tested and accepted into the group.

Both have espers who are extremely powerful. One is about ghosts and they both show how people aren't comfortable with esper powers.

They both are the most dramatic and darkest in their series. Heck even for the cute girls as well. Except GODY: The Abyssal Fairy doesn't takes it's self too seriously and the violence is mild While ZKC: The Unlimited is a lot more violent and has puddles of blood. GODY: The Abyssal Fairy is less edgier than ZKC: The Unlimited.

Both shows have a tight knit family of friends who have to fight to survive as part of an agency of sorts. Both shows have esper and supernatural elements and have a perfect mix of darkness, sarcasm, and lighter humor. Both shows are relatively short, but have interesting stories that are occasionally shrouded in mystery, and both shows focus on character development by way of flashbacks and history. The second season of Bungo, which is fairly highly regarded, actually reminded me a lot of The Unlimited, which came out a few years before, but is criminally under rated and largely forgotten. If you liked Bungo,  read more

Both very op main characters. Both are fighting for a purpose.

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited is about a psychic terrorist group. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is about a battle magic training school and harem. So what can be similar between these two seemingly different shows? - The underlying theme in both shows is "us against the world". Despite their strong abilities, the MCs are shunned by the majority of society. How will they fight for their acknowledgement? - MCs have the support of a few close friends. Watch how they go through difficult challenges with friendship and teamwork. - MCs can only use their full power for short periods at once. How will they work within their limitations?

When I was watching Captain Harlock I found myself thinking that it was similar to the Unlimited. Some plot points and actions the characters take reflect each other in both series. The setting and overall story is different, but both are action-oriented and enjoyable to watch.

First, let's examine the similarities: - Small communities of users with superhuman abilities being targeted by organizations. - MCs are OP, probably the strongest within their groups. - MCs have the emotional support and teamwork from a close group of comrades. Despite sharing similar themes, both shows have very different initial tones. Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited starts off with a bang, showing a psychic terrorist group raiding facilities across the world. Charlotte starts off on a gentler note, showing how school children use their special abilities across daily life in hilarious ways. The contrast makes both series complement each other in refreshing ways.

In terms of a main character being overpowered and badass these two match in a ton of ways. Other than that I can't say the stories are similar other than they each a somewhat of a community in which they are trying to protect/fight for.

Both involve people with psychic abilities who are hated and persecuted by normal people.

Both share similarity in that people born with esper powers are feared and hated by non-espers.

Both are stories of a company build up with people with superpowers in fictional versions of real life world wars. -Also, both have ridiculously strong protagonists from the start.

* ESP power * fight between good and bad espers * two leading "races" in universe: normal people and espers

Similarities: Both have the same character's with special abilities. Both have the same kind of genres Both involves characters who fight against evil. Dissimilarities: In one anime the characters fought against people who either wants to manipulate them or destroy them, while the other anime, the characters fight against evil. One has a particular character who can dispel the powers of another character, while the other one hasn't.

Lets say I just had a similar feeling while watching both anime Both have humour and a something dark in it, though zettai karen is a bit darker Both main characters have special powers Both have someone who is new to the situation and doesn't except it easily (Noragami - Yukine, Zettai - Andy) And both are just awesome

Both have unrestrained violence, beings with superpowers and ones without, and an overall tone that is a mixture of hope and fear for the future of humankind.

While not necessarily following the same premise, both of these series adapts a supernatural/super power theme that comes into play many times in each episode. The main male protagonist from both series is a calculating individual who is independent, badass, and somewhat cold towards others. Yet, he does care quite a bit of his comrades as well as the people he works for. Both series has action, drama, some comedy, and also some emotional moments. Both series' main character also has a troubled past that seemingly made them the person they are as of today.

In essence, both series incorporates characters who has esper powers. They use their powers for various purposes, some for good while others for evil. Both series' main protagonist are powerful espers who has perfected their powers for their own use. Both series features a super power like theme but at the same time has some lighthearted backgrounds. The series follows a group of espers and what they do in their every day lives. Both series has a lot of drama, action, and some comedy.

Both series have really great action that involves organisations fighting against each other, as well as likable characters and elements of comedy.

At first glance, I thought these two series weren't too similar. However, at many instances, I see a lot more similarities than one may imagine. The main characters from both series are similar in terms of personalities. They are part of a group who often undertakes dangerous tasks in a city of crime, prejudice, and other cases involving dangerous individuals. The setting is similar with that city background with a crude outlook on life. However, the main characters from both series are used to it and gets their jobs done well. This is usually the result of teamwork and coordination. If you like action, drama, and some good  read more
