Fruit of Grisaia and Irregular, oh man. Where do I begin? The badass main character, the ridiculous harem, the overplayed enemies of the main cast. They are so similar it's physically painful. Except, what is this? Grisaia is better. Why? It's simple. Because Grisaia is horribly aware of what it is. It's a harem show with an awesome protagonist doing awesome thing. The creators know it and they break nearly every stereotype it sets. Irregular insults the audience's intelligence. They divert your attention with lengthy meta-explanations and incest they pretend isn't there. Not a single person in this entire cast was worth anything to the  read more

Seems like they're at a school type of setting trying to get over some sort of past they had to move on and live life. Each character has some unique personality or past that is gone over and also has a story to go with them.

Almost the same art style with the main protagonist being aware of his situations and intelligent. Also girls. 
report Recommended by Instabang
Similarities: Both of the MCs have hidden, tragic pasts that turn them into cold, calculated, and close to emotionless badasses. Thus, both the MCs are very strong. Similar harem type concept in both shows with the girls in the harems also being special in more psychological terms. Very similar art style and production, had to even check if they were made by the same studio. Very similar twisted side of human nature shown in both, expressed in the same powerful, distinct art style that Grisaia used.

These two series follow multiple students' lives. The art style in both, for the most part, is bishoujo...Which, you guessed it, means they have harem elements. However, they are most similar for having a hint of mystery rather than just vapid (or simplistic) slice of life. To be warned, however, Grisaia has a lot more outright fanservice and violence, while Little Busters has little to none of those things. Both of these anime keep an air of drama to them, through character development and interpersonal relationships. They also have that clean, crisp artistic style found in a lot of vn-based anime.

They both have multiple heroines with a male protagonist as the main character at the center of everything. Each heroine has a unique past later found out through the anime. However, "Rewrite" has a supernatural theme to it unlike the series of "Grisaia".

Harem. Fun and entertaining story in which the main character: a lazy good-looking sarcastic teenager with some secrets, opens up the possibility of redemption to the hot girls that surround him by helping them out. 
report Recommended by IchikuRyodai
Both have this feeling of "moe, gore and harem" with them and are based on visual novels. Grisaia no Kajitsu's first ep ended up just like Higurashi would, with this dark feeling on it. I must admit I was going to drop it, but for some reason I ended up watching the whole ep, and I'm glad I did. It's not so bad, however, it has this feeling of "getting worse during next episodes" that I hate. I guess that if you liked Higurashi you'll at least have this nostalgia feeling with Grisaia, since they're pretty similar.

If you give the girls in each series a lugubrious backstory and fetishize them completely and you have two very similar works. The narratives in each are somewhat action based, but ultimately neither feel too far away from being just another Elfen Lied clone ten years too late.

The World God Only Knows and Grisaia no Kajitsu are both in the Harem anime genre: multiple girls fall in love with one guy. The first season of Grisaia no Kajitsu and the first two seasons of The World God Only Knows are divided into several arcs, one for each heroine the main protagonist meets. One major trait shared by these two anime that made me really like them both is their amount and quality of character development. Throughout each arc of the two anime, the protagonist and the viewer learn about the heroine’s personal difficulties or a major event that took place in their  read more

While both series belong to different genres, one thing they both have in common is a similarly stoic protagonist who is always logical and hardly ever expresses emotion. And in both series, they're both mysterious protagonists, since very little backstory is given to explain their stoic personalities. But in Grisaia no Meikyuu and Grisaia no Rakuen, we eventually learn a lot more about Yuuji's backstory, explaining why he is the way he is. On the other hand, Aldnoah Zero's second season never explains Inaho's backstory.

Both animes have similar plot structures and main characters who are poignant in their personality and seem rather cautious of others. SNAFU is a bit more down to earth with hints of romance. While Grisaisa seems ordinary, but really hints at dark humor. What these two shows possess in common is nuanced character interactions and dialogue, whilst Grisaia being a tad darker than SNAFU.

Grisaia no Kajitsu's main male lead is simply Hidan no Aria's lead with his assassin mode left on. These Anime's also both contain a lot of the same features: - A strong male Lead. - A main love interest (With other party's trying to get involved.) - In depth Character development. - An action packed story. - A out of the ordinary school setting. There are some differences for instance: - Grisaia no Kajitsu is classed as an Harem (Hidan no Aria is not but does contain many features of a harem.) - Hidan no Aria contains humans with supernatural powers.

- Both MC are cynical, has a mysterious difficult past and are exceptionally skilled shooters, therefore they remind of each other - Both series has a school setting with a slight of ecchi though - While the plot of GnK is a drama/psychological-focused plot, Triage X goes by action/adventure. Altough the story of them differ from each other

There is not a whole lot that is similar between the two animes but there is a bit. In daitoshokan, the main chracter is lighthearted when compared to the main chracter of the fruit of grisaia but the main premise is similar how at one point or another the main mc helps each girl with something they have or had trouble with in their lives also like every anime of this genre all the girls are in love with the main chracter

Both shows focus on characters who were masks day by day to secretly hide their problems. As the story progress', the characters begin unraveling their masks and being more true to themselves

Yamada kun and Grisaia both utilize a badass mc that goes around solving problems left and right, all while being involving with both the characters and the environment. yamada kun is more easy going/less intense action wise and overall whilst grisaia is really dark and explosive with action. both have a harem but yamada is more magic/happy/school romance while grisaia uses more realistic themes for its harem. both have mc's that can get the job done, something a lot of animes nowadays are lacking in. if youre looking for a show to let off the steam of something serious, go for yamada kun, if youre looking for  read more

Similarities: •Main character shares similar personalities (both are strong, cynical, cares for others from time-to-time, etc.). •Main character both care for their sister. •Both share a similar atmosphere/feel. •Both anime are decently long (each has 2 seasons with 20+ episodes). (•My personal opinion but both shows are very good.) Differences: •Grisaia No Kajitsu has nudity while Darker Than Black doesn't have any. •People in Darker Than Black has powers due to contracts that were made while Grisaia No Kajitsu doesn't.

both anime is about gun war. -Revy reminds me of asako of grisaia. they're look alike and shares the same characteristic and personality. If you love guns, killings, and good story. You should give any of this a try. If you happen to watched any of these two, try the other one. Bot shows shares the same atmosphere and enjoyment. enjoy!

Both shows involve a cast of people who have had tough pasts and desire to escape them. Mayoiga has that "horror" hint to it whereas Grisaia doesn't. Grisaia has a smaller cast than Mayoiga which allows a clear story and character development (in my opinion) I'm surprised no one else has recommended Grisaia for Mayoiga.

Similarities: -Lots of screaming -Lots of dying -Both the shows have a protagonist that is involved with assassination. -Both have mother like figures who teach and raise the protagonist. -Really touching story -You will cry a lot. -You will cry a lot.

One guy....a great HAREM and just great story... Both have great art OP's are awesome [ + 1 score for overall rating... Super awesome MC's

These two series, both based on VNs, feature similar structures in their attempts to uncover as much of as many of the routes as possible in a very short timeframe (We're talking about a 20 hour VN compared against an 8 hour show, after all). Grisaia has far more "ecchi" elements to it, and much fewer supernatural elements than Kanon, but the viewer who enjoys one would likely enjoy the other.

Both shows has a MC/MP who can understand the ladies and help them about their worries in life. Very relatable characters, that speaks about reality in RL society. really worth watching. enjoy!

Main Similarities: •MC-kun are both strong. •Both anime shows characters back story of each character. On top of that, MC-kun helps the girl in need and ends up falling for him. •Each female characters have a distinct personality (never a dull moment). •Plenty of fan service. (If you like older/younger sister having a crush on the brother than try the show out) •Similar genres (romance, harem, ecchi, action, etc.). My personal opinion but both are very good. I highly recommend you to try the anime.

The Anime don't have much similarity. Although, if you like Kuzuno Honkai you might aswell like Grisaia no Kajitsu. It has Ecchi in it and weird Romance. Its more of a harem. But you will most likely like it, if you liked this anime.

- The main character in both series is studying at a girls' only school although they are male. - Both Yuuji and Ichika have a harem, although, in one of the anime, the choice that the main character is going to make / has made is more obvious than in the other. - Both have a lot of ecchi content. 
report Recommended by TheXchidori
Both contain a male protagonist who helps his classmates with their personal troubles, getting closer to them in the process. Of course, the differences in genre and audience reveal the differences in how the protagonists go about it. Some characters share similar traits, but none worth mentioning. 
report Recommended by Reload
Grisaia no Kajitsu is like what would happen if you put the protagonist of Full Metal Panic in the events of Bakemonogatari written by the guys of Key with help from Gen Urobuchi. Both GnK and FMP are romantic comedy anime about teenaged secret military top soldiers sent to a normal school where they try to live "normal" lives. Both start out with lots of comedy, then become dark fairly quick. Although, while GnK stays mostly dark after, FMP goes back and forth with comedy.

Both main characters have undergone some serious training in the deadly arts since childhood and have been made into tools for killing (assassins duh) Both animes kinda go deep and focus more on the MC's past , imo if not for the fan service GnK would be a totally serious anime. It also shows you the events that have transpired before leading upto to the MC's cold cool personality in the present!

These two start out pretty light-hearted, with only hints of some darkness. The storylines involve high school-aged kids. However, in the final few episodes, plot twists abound and they become very dark. 
report Recommended by Valkyrie_Wings
These series both focus on harem elements. They can have some comedy and light-hearted moments, but something darker with a hint of mystery lies underneath. Grisaia, I think, is a little more dark than H2O. But they are both satisfying mystery-type harems IF you enjoy these genres/themes.

Both have a focus on characters that work on getting over sad pasts including mental illness and trauma.

The drama and progression of the story line have a similar feel. The pacing of the shows of smaller cases that lead up to a large multi-episode arc is also similar.

These two series are bishoujo, visual novel-based harems. They feature a colorful cast of characters that actually get development (some more than others) in their respective arcs. Grisaia is more fanservice and violence-heavy, though. They both contain tragedy and plot twists.

-Main characters are very strong indeed. Yuuji from Grisaia wants a normal student life on the other hand Sora wants some action. They are both skilled in some way Yuuji is based on assasination and martial arts combat, Sora is a true no life gamer who does not need anybody except for his younger sister Shiro. -In both animes they use their brains to solve problems however in no game no life is about games as I said and in Grisaia is more about solving other people's (past and present) problems. -There is plot in both series -Grisaia is more of an psychological anime and no game  read more

They both relates to assassination. Both main characters protects a female character or characters. The feeling you get from watching Akuma no Riddle is similar to the Grisaia series.  
report Recommended by Krazybigk
This is a very specific comparison, but Grisaia no Kajitsu’s protagonist has an origin story that parallels much of what we see in Kiritsugu’s early childhood. Grisaia has a story based more around a scientific world that has many elements and seems often times unfocused, but the attention to character development also is a similarity between these two series.

Similarities: • A happy-go-lucky comedy with something darker underneath. • Characters with traumas in their pasts, and who are struggling to deal with it in their own ways. • Certain similar events taking place (it's hard to explain this without spoilers) • Foreshadows the mystery and darkness early, then dials it back to gradually sneak it back in later • Both have music composed by Elements Garden Dissimilarities: • Where Grisaia's underlying plot is more believable, Koi to Senkyo to Chocolote is more absurd. • KoiChoco is more plot driven, GnK is more character driven • Lots of fan service in GnK, not so much in KoiChoco.

Both anime have central plots of an MC with a serious demeanor, who tries to help each of the 5 main girls accept themselves and each other. The part that differs and makes QQ so enjoyable, by dodging cliches in present in most harems the show is able to stay funny. So if you liked Grisaia but wished for a more lighthearted, wholesome and a bigger emphasis on romance, I 100% recommend QQ. optional read Got me back into anime after a long 2-3 year hiatus. so pretty damn good :)

Both animes gives to the viewer the similar feeling of dependency and sadness that each heroine has to the hero of the story. Also in both stories heroines have to carry a huge pain and burden in their hearts and the hero helps them to overcome.

The two Animes starts with a humorous beginning of the protagonists. The two protagonists are intellectual of their surroundings and will make the impossible into a possible situation. Although Steins;Gate was in more of a fantasy realm, and Grisaia no Kajitsu is more of a realistic realm, Steins;Gate is a very mysterious and mind-blowing Anime to watch.

Both Male protagonists are forced into relations with multiple girls. Each character has a secret that they would rather not share with others. Both stories are set around school life and how each character builds deeper friendships with one another. Both series share Comedy, Drama, Romance, Ecchi, and Harem genre elements.

As far as the setting goes, the two aren't very similar, but that's not the case with the main characters. Both come from a relatively secretive background and have had some sort of special training. They both attend a formerly-all girls academy where they create a harem. The biggest difference between the two is that Juuou Mujin no Fafnir's MC is comparably a lot less fleshed out and more potato-y than Grisaia no Kajitsu's protagonist.

- both psychological af - childhood connections with the male characters - sexy ass females - lots of killing differences: - grisaia no kajitsu is more school themed and characters are more fucked in the head - elfen lied is supernatural and brutal - graphics are completely different but thats what you would expect from such a gap in age
