Both series originaly derive from visual novels by Type-Moon.
The stories are also somewhat similar, both featuring a teenage boy being drawn into a conflict, supported by many female characters, and both series have strong female main characters.
If you by any chance liked the anime of the highly-celebrated eroge game Tsukihime, there's no reason for a person who played Fate/Stay Night to not see the anime. Despite lacking the in-depth story telling present in the games, any fan should at least watch it and compare it to them. Of course that for those who haven't played both games, and loved or enjoyed watching Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night should be something they should watch as well. Same universe, different place, different setting. Can you make any connections between both series or their characters?
In both animes the main character is a boy whose life is in danger. Then he gets involved with a girl from another world who becomes his fighting partner. Both animes have quite a sad, serious feeling. Fate/stay night might be a bit more flashy.
When the main male char runs into the vampire princess Tsukihime one day, his life changed drastically. Together with Tsukihime he fights against the evil guy, so in this way it is similar to Fate/stay night. It has also a similar ending.
Fate/stay night and Tsukihime plays on the fantasy world on the "modern" era. Fantasy in the sense of monsters and magic, with action and blood.
Animation style, the world in Tsukihime seems a bit more gritty, while Fate/stay series is a bit more vibrant.
From the same creators, Type-Moon
Both based on the erotic visual novel game.
However, they do not use the nude and sex scenes as a crutch in either series. Even though they are targeting the audience of teenage males, the strongest characters are the female leads.
Having seen both of these to the end I can say the only true similarities (they are similar of course) are that although one is male and one female, both anime contain a protagonist that has the mystic eyes of death. They see lines and the way their eyes are perceived are the same (seeing lines, cut through them, things die), and both of them are called "bloodthirsty killer" at least once. Both have a friend of the opposite gender. Tsukihime is more vampire based while Kara no Kyoukai is modern day (sort of)
Both also have a powerful male antagonist.
both have similar skill in using dagger to become their main weapon,both character is also fight only in the night so that make the series become gore and horror. in this series contained a lot violence.
First off both anime are made by Type-Moon, and on top of that the plot and character are very very similar. The MC from Shingetsutan & the MC from Kara no Kyoukai both have mystic eyes of death, both series have many female characters and romance is also a main genre........
Characters in both series have a lot in common. Tohno Shiki all the time reminded me of Kokutou Mikiya, these charcters have a lot of in common (even the voice actor!). So Brunestud Arcueid assocites with Ryougi Shiki having shy appearance and looking alike.
In both of these anime you will see nice fights, mystery, supernatural stuff and searching the truth about some events.
Both have a Vampire female protagonist which has a haunty air, but is clumsy in social situations. Both are the elite of their kind. They both interact with the male protagonist in a similar sort of air. The male lead is a born killer, though unaware of the fact and has some supernatural force by his side (Shiki with his eyes of death perception and Akira being a werewolf likebeing).
The animation has the same kind of feel, but tsukihime is noticalby older.
Both could be for fans of Twliight (and for once with a vampire related story)
ALSO FOR THOSE WHO DONT!
Main female characters in both anime are supernatural beings and male characters have mysteries in their past. Similar dramatic plot lines with good romance and minor, but decent action. Also, both anime have wonderful soundtracks.
These are both very mysterious, about mythical beings and creatures. If you liked one of them, I really recommend watching the other one. They both have an amazing storyline and plot.
If you like secrets being unfold, then these animes are definately worth your time.
Both of these are very close in term of plot and how everything develops.
Sola does have some different aspects that more mixed with Ef and kara no kyoukai which also are similar. But like all these a nice mix of drama romance and action.
the main protagonists in both share the same name and the ability to see lines which once cut the whole object crumbles. they both have this dark feel to them and involve a series of murders. if you haven't watch neither i suggest you watch kara no kyoukai first as it is a vastly superior story with better developed characters, drama, and romance.
These strike me as similar, they are both romantic dramas, both a bit tragic. both have action as a major genre as well. The main charter in each dose not want to fall in love. There are more similarity's but if I told you them I would be giving it away! Watch the other and see what I mean. ;)
This show is also a Type-Moon work. The series both have very strong and profound characters, both have romantic themes, and both have fantastic music. However, Fate/Zero seems to have better animation.
Both animes are rare in the fact that they are excellent and short, but don't leave you with the feeling that there should be more. Both have a compelling conceptualization of vampires that is particularly rare, as well as a strong plot, animations and sounds which contribute to a chilling and engaging atmosphere. These animes don't have particularly weak characters, however could probably benefit from a bit more character depth. Kurozuka, however, is not quite as accessible as Tsukihime, and may be difficult for some people to follow.
Although the stories and even tones of the two animes are completely different, they have a coule things in common; for one, they are both extremely dramatic and sad. Both also rely quite a lot on secrets and a moderate amount on betrayal and regret. The style of art in both is also not extremely cute, but definitely pretty. If you liked one, you will probably like the other.
The main character is similar with looks with Arcueid as princess... they are both great fighters and Falis has same vampire eyes when she goes berserk as Arcueid when she is serious and uses some of her power... The style is similar too like TYPE-moons [my favorite artwork]. So I think u will like it, if u liked the main character. ^^
Both are directed by Katsushi Sakurabi, this one is a director of character and development. Assate is, like Tsukihime, a slow anime. A series where little actions and silences are more important that the action.
Both feature main female heroines with supernatural powers who fight enemies that are somehow related to the source of their own powers.
Both have a regular male companion to their adventures.
Both have a dense and dark feel to it.
Art is similar.
These two animes are similar, because their plots and characters are somewhat the same in the sense that they both involve a male, main character, that ends up protecting a vampire girl, and ultimately fighting along side her. Moon phase is the cute side, while Shingetsutan Txukihime is a little more violence, than it is cat ears.
These two animes are similar in the sense that they are both about vampires and vampiric activity. However, Tsukihime has a dark storyline, whereas Karin is a lighthearted romance comedy which has vampires and vampiric activities which are quite different to the usual image of vampires and darkness.
They both have similar main characters. Both main characters have shinigami eyes. Zombie loan's main character has eyes which allows her to see a dark ring around a person's neck. This ring symbolizes the person's impending death; once they are marked to die, a gray line, which is invisible to normal people, appears on their neck, and once the ring turns completely black, the person dies. Tsukihime's main character has shinigami eyes which allow him to see lines on all objects living or not which if he cuts (with a knife he has had with him since he was a child) will be destroyed or killed
These two are similar mostly because they both deal with individuals who have rather odd "latent" abilities (dealing with vampiric practices sort of) until arriving into their high school lives. They both also deal with blood sucking environments (vampires again). Each series has a dark undertone (Tsukihime is somewhat on the lighter side though).
It may not seem, but these series are almost alike. Both Shiki and Takumi have unusual powers and, at the beginning, they are scared by unusual, beautiful girls. And they get support from female characters. The difference is that in Shingetsutan Tsukihime they are fighting vampires, and in Chaos Head they're fighting illusions.
I do not know how this is never .. For I can not control at first sight, I saw a kind of typical events, which are somewhat Mixed few episodes, especially in the end, the story seemed similar .. All of them talk about students having to travel away for a long time and then start the story until he returns to see things have not been deemed by the events change the course of his life for reasons unknown, we will see them in the end
