-They are both written by Lynn Okamoto
-They are both about girls and powers
-They are both violent and gory
-There is a male lead with several girls with that power
-The girls are being hunted down by the labs that created them
-Involves graphic violence and emotion themes such as:
social alienation, identity, prejudice, revenge, abuse, jealousy, regret and the value of humanity *off wikipedia
The setting is almost the same, but with another story.
That's probably because they are both from the same mangaka.
However, both include dark atmosphere, splatter and mystery, so, if you are into it you should watch it.
These two series deals with human experiments and supernatural powers and a male protagonist who helps the girls from being hunted by some laboratory agents. they are both gore and a has mild nudity. they have the same author so they are really much alike. So if you like gokukoku no brynhildr you will like this too.
Same creator, both of these give off the same vibe, with superpowers, both of the main characters have been through trauma that has to do with the female protagonist. If you enjoyed one of them you'll enjoy the other :)
A dude try to hide girls he met in the past from a powerful cruel organization. Elfen Lied is way more gore, but, when GnB will be in blu-ray, it will have some bloody scene too. GnB is in my opinion more diversified, though, the humor can be anti-climatic. They both have some excellent mystery aspect and deep universe. Really dark atmosphere.
-Both have gore elements
-Both stories revolve around a male MC that is surrounded by females with supernatural powers
-In both stories the girls with the supernatural powers are being chased down by scientists from a laboratory
-The male MC is trying to help out and save the girls with supernatural powers hide from the scientists
They're both psychological thrillers written by the same person. They're both about girls who have been used as human experiments. These girls have super powers. The male mc tries to hide them from the evil organization they came from. Both are creepy and have lots of gore and ecchi. Both are great.
Where this show is great is the feelings it can evoke, they are both brutal and honest and I think that's something everyone should experience at least once in their life. Understanding that humans are the biggest monsters, the cruelest. Where this show improves upon it's predecessor is the art and the characters, voice acting seems better too. Overall it is a well-rounded anime I thoroughly recommend to those who enjoyed Elfen Lied.
Here are some things they share in common:
- They are written by the same person
- They are about girls with powers
- They both include a male lead who does not have powers
- Graphic and violent themes, (slight comedy and harem elements)
- They both explore the same issues and emotions of, prejudice, isolation, misanthropy, evil in science, evil in humanity, relationships, regret, tragedy read more
Both anime's are pyschological thrillers that are written by the same person (Lynn Okamoto). Both animes have girls with special powers. Both anime's have lots of gore and horror scenes. My personal opinion on the two is that they are similar because of the main male lead and they both have very comedic romance scenes.
Brynhildr features a similarly gritty tone and dark atmosphere with characters having escaped lab experimentation, sporting special abilities, and becoming pursued by others sent by said lab to kill them.
Although the former is a bit more serious in tone, it can be quite grizzly at times and there's no shortage of supernatural elements. This series will probably not shock you as much, but is eerily similar in many ways.
Also, it's relativity short length makes for an ideal dark/supernatural afternoon binge-watch!
Produced by the same people who made Elfen Lied, Gokukoku no Brynhildr features girls with individual powers who have escaped from a research lab. The main concepts are similar but differ more as you go from there. Gokukoku no Brynhildr is also less ecchi and gory, so if you're someone who felt a little too overwhelmed or turned off by that in Elfen Lied, maybe this will be more enjoyable for you.
Both of the series Elfen Lied (EL) and Gokukoku no Brynhildr (GnB) is written by Lynn Okamoto.
If you're fascinated by one of these two, highly chance that you will be interested in the other one too. Gore is the main theme of both series; however romance also has been bound with these two. Definitely you will get the same vibe when watching both of the series.
Elfen Lied is heavily implied by high class issues while lift up slightly fantasy to make it up as a masterpiece. Gokukoku no Brynhildr also make its way with the same concepts as well but focusing more of the depth in the science subject.
Both of these series are written by the same person so some themes carried over. There is a boy surrounded by about four girls who have something to do with supernatural powers. The girls with powers are being hunted down by scientists who they ran away from and are trying to survive while living with the boy. Both shows are worth the watch if you have the time.
+ Both are written by the same Mangaka
+ Both have girls that have escaped from Laboratories
+ The girls are sheltered by a guy
+ The girls have Super powers
+ A little romance
+ A spoiler I can't mention here
- Brynhildr is a crappy version of Elfen Lied
- Brynhildr has too much fan service
- Elfen Lied is a much more serious show
Both feature girls with various superpowers. In both series, a group of them gather around the protagonist and together they fight against other girls and a powerful organisation.
However, Gokukoku no Brynhildr is more serious and has less fanservice. And its protagonist is much more capable than the useless wimp from Sekirei.
They have both good stories.Good romance and a lot of OPPAI :D I would tottaly reccomend both to watch.worth it. Both Sekirei And Gokukoku no Brynhlidr are few woman group fighting each other forcefully
* Powerless/nearly useless male MC surounded by a bunch of superpowered yet dumb girls....
* In both, girls are like pokemon with different types/powers...
* Sekirei handles comedic and emotional scenes way better than GnB....
* Both are harems ( most hated/disliked genre in MAL ).... both are for open minded people....( yeah, fuck you feministes!!! )
* Both has fights every episode for survival, coz u know - Gotta catch 'em all !
* Still, in both our Protag-kun tries to help these girls to survive this nightmarish reality...giving them a place to stay(?), food supplies and other crap...
* Both has open endings ( read the source material!!!! to know proper ending!!! ) read more
Both shows have the main cast in an astronomy club. Both shows also have characters that have premonitions about the future to warn their friends. The two animes have sense of mystery and with a bit of romance. The only major difference is that Brynhildr is focused on fighting.
Astronomy Club members solve mysterious events around them. A mysterious object/person is the key to stopping it. Supernatural events are occurring that changes their lives forever. One series is based on a manga while the other a visual novel.
Similarities: Both have main guy as MC, both have dark and tragic undertones, and have this Astronomy Club which is also the place where most of the scenes are happening. Both are also harem-like animes that has this main girl which is the love interest of the guy MC.
Both are harems full of fanservice and try to be serious.The girls all have social problems and are hunted by some eeeevil organisation and seek shelter from the main character, who is the only guy who can save them with the power of friendship
-Both feature girls that have different abilities
-Both feature a boy living with girls that people would normally not accept them into society
-Harem with girls that have special abilities
-Both have hilarious scenes (Except Date A Live has more).
- each girls have their own problem and different abilities
- They just have a difference plot and characters design
Which one is better?
I feel like Brynhildr have a better story plot
Teenagers who secretly have superpowers team up with each other to try to live a normal life while helping out other teens like them.
They also are trying to avoid getting caught and experimented on for having powers.
If these two are anything to go by, lately there has been something of an anime fad where DARKDEATHBLOODDOOOOM subject matter gets blended with... the desires of otaku. One minute you'll be watching a gruesome dismemberment scene; the next you'll be watching lighthearted anime humour, with boobs and pantsu thrown in. HUH!?
Brynhildr has a premise involving predicting future deaths, human experimentation, needing medication to not die horribly whilst coughing up blood and many other feel good aspects. Then, naturally, you have Mr. Average Harem lead forming a girls-only observatory group--the heroine, ofc, being a childhood friend with no memories. New girls are introduced one after the other, with pantsu and perverted humour at the ready.
Akame has a premise involving assassination, corrupt nobility, torture and many other happy thoughts. The lead quickly becomes a member of an assassin group, determined to right the wrongs of society... but not before getting to know each female member of his group; including a tsundere with a gun that is angered by the lead walking in on her naked. In fact, even the 'villain' of the series - known for her cold-hearted, sadistic slaughter - sees the lead and instantly decides she wants to mate with him.
Akame is more over the top with its shounenish character design exaggerations and more entertaining because of it, but both shows SHOULD leave the viewer perplexed. If you go into it wanting DARKNESS, harem time will result in cringing. If you got into it wanting future waifu candidates, you'll want to skip the whole blood-death thing. The question is, who actually gets what they want out of these shows? NOT ME! read more
Those shows kind of gave me a similar feeling while watching. The plot isn't very similar but the character setup and the overall vibe of the shows kind of resemble each other.
First off, you have a male main character who is kind of hung up on childhood friends that supposedly died. He is surrounded by a lot of girls that are quite strong fighters and own special abilitys (GnB) or weapons with special abilities (AgK).
They include fanservice quite a few times and some of the girls are similar in their behavior as well.
Both have some gore in them but also include some rather light hearted moments and "slice of life"-ish aspects.  read more
Both have the cast of characters being "killed off" by each passing storyline, so detailed that they involve blood & gore for dramatic effect. The girls in the group like to tease the MC, so fanservice is within certain parts of the show for comedic relief. A subplot involves sisters (Akame & Kurome) (Kuroha & Mako) belonging to the good & bad side that eventually duel each other to the death.
Both shows have "organizations" that focus on female experiments to do "work" for them. Both shows are extremely bloody and divide their female characters by "ranks", Claymore numerically, and Brynhildr alphabetically. However, Claymore is more of a hack and slash anime in a medieval setting, while Byrnhildr is in a modern setting.
What do they have in common?
-Both are violent and gory
-Both are about girls and powers
-Girls are "created" by an organisation for their usage
-Organisations make the grils fight each
-Girls are ranked based on their abbilities
-Girls questioning their origins
-Involves graphic violence and emotion themes such as:
social alienation, identity, prejudice, revenge, abuse, jealousy, regret and the value of humanity
What is different?
-Comedy aspect here
-Claymore is focused on the action and fight scerens while Brynhildr uses mystery
-Claymore has a Middle Ages setting while Brynhildr is set in our current time
Both have the same situation where the guy and girl met once when they where children and after sometime they where able meet again.
Both have the same school settings.
Both have the same sci-fi, romance, harem and action genre.
Both have similar situation where girl is running away from an evil organization.
And, both have the same predicament where guy got involved.
One has an extra comedy genre, while the other one has a mystery genre.
The girl in one anime is an ET, while the girl in the other anime is a gov't science project that got away.
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.
Both are serious harem story.
both MC protects the girls.
In brynhildr the MC really protects the girls eve he is powerless physically, he able to sacrifice himself just to protects the girls from enemy.
In grisaia. the MC is skilled and smart.
Both shows have people with supernatural abilities who attempt to gain freedom from a twisted place
Both shows has quite a bit of blood and death
In both shows the people who have the supernatural abilities are set to die if they do not take a candy(in Deadman) or pill(in Gokukoku).
I watched these two anime pretty much back to back and noticed that brynhildr was very similar to deadman wonderland.
Both anime have a similar system of people required to consume something (candy/pill) to stay alive. In deadman wonderland, they have branches of sin-blood weapons, and in brynhildr they have powers such as erasing people's memories.
The character relationships also have similarities.
Deadman Wonderland - Shiro + Ganta played together as children
Brynhildr - Neko + Ryouta played together as kids
I believe that there were more similarities, however because it has been awhile since I've watched these animes I cannot recall them.  read more
Both have situations where one must take pills in order to survive
Both need to beat people that are clearly stronger
No one is to overpowered
The plot is completely different. Canaan requires the use of guns and pure strength but Brynhildr is witches
Both have a main character who believes in the existence of aliens, but in Denpa the main character thinks she's an alien, while in Brynhildr he just thinks they exist. Both have the alien aspect, but actually have little to do with aliens.
Both animes focus on a blue haired girl who likes stargazing and has an obsession with aliens. In both of them, the male lead ends up looking after after her, and they have a fairly close relationship. There is also other girls who want to get with the MC. They both have somewhat similar art styles as well.
Other than that they're completely different though.
If you're interested in mystery involving high school students then this is for you. What these series excel in is building up an atmosphere which keeps you wondering what the secrets behind these incidents are.
Although one involves zombies and the other involves witches both have uncanny similarities. In "Gokukoku no Brynhildr" the male protagonist "Murakam, Ryoutai" has the amazing talent of photographic memory and the ability to stay cool, calm and collective in situations that really count.
Situations arise around Ryouta which call for quick and cleaver decision making which he follows through brilliantly to protect his childhood love and everyone around him. Characters come and go really quick but if you look at "Highschool of the Dead", a lot of characters come and go really quick or should I say the main cast dispose of them really quick and to the best of their ability at that.
Here is another story that has just as many girls, the same environment, where both casts just want to lead a normal life. (One is the zombie apocalypse; the other is scientific experimenting with "said items" making witches.) Highschool of the Dead's male protagonist "Komuro, Takashi" has the "swing the baseball bat in any direction" approach to the struggles that pursue him and his group. Although he is not as clever as Ryoutai, he is however far more resourceful of the tools and various items around him, with knowledge of everyone's strengths and weaknesses’, he’s in a brilliant position to make sound and tactical decisions, to benefit himself and the ensuing cast around him.(Although he doesn't realize it!!!)
The factual opinions to why I would recommend Gokukoku no Brynhildr and H.O.T.D are simple the cast, the adventure, the action, the suspense, the thrill of watching these two series is so intense, you could simply lose yourself and fall into that exact world and envision yourself as your favorite character seeing how well you could survive in the exact situation.
In my opinion these two animes are really a like.
First, both have a dark atmosphere, althought there's some light comedy in Brynhildr.
Secondly, the art is really similar, and Murakama looks like Oz to me.
Their characters are also alike, Murakama tries to protect Kuroneko, wile Oz tries to protect Alice.
Murakama and Oz both are ordinary humans, while Kuroneko and Alice have magic powers.
Alice and Kuroneko both have dark past - Alice's been to Abyss (Hell) and Kuroneko has been basically a laboratory rat, which developed her to become a modified witch.
Both girls are running from their past, falling in love with the guy who saved them and having pretty strong enemies to fight with.
If you want some mistery, dark atmosphere, beautiful characters, interesting story and anime that will keep you glued on your seat, then I recommend these two read more
Gokukoku no Brynhildr and Ajin deal with humans who have gained supernatural powers. Both protagonists and their friends are hiding from scientists who want to run tests on them. Both contain gore, psychological and horror elements.
1 Scientists experimented on main characters
2 both have mystery, horror, and supernatural genre
3 girls have superpowers
4 similar way of dying ( Gory and blood )
5 recalling the events of the past (when they were children)
-girls with esper powers.
-guys who was living a peaceful life gets turned upside-down when they met a girl
(Touman and Index, Kuroneko and Ryota).
-Brynhildr has a dark atmosphere
Girl with special powers escapes from research facility in which she was experimented upon and finds custody in our MC.
The main difference is that Alice to Zouroku is more light-hearted while Gokukoku no Brynhildr is quite violent.
It's Otonashi in a new form: I say this because the English Voice actor is Otonashi from Angel Beats! And during Episode 2, he says something that Otonashi would say and act, plus it feels like the English Voice Actor wanted it to be like Angel Beats, and I sense it when he voiced this show. If you miss Angel Beats, and wanted more, this is the show, and it's all thanks to Otonashi English Voice Actor.
Both series feature cute girls in the main cast that have special abilities, live apart from or are shunned from society, and have shorter than normal life spans. Both shows also have the MC treat these girls as regular people and he helps them experience just being human. This in turn endears him to them. Although the plots to the two series are quite different, this underlying theme is present in both shows.
Both of these anime have a slightly echi side to them. Both harems are filled with girls with unique abilities. The male protagonist in both is constantly trying to save and help the girls in the harem. The character design for the main female interest is similar and are both voices by Taneda Risa. The episode and series pacing for both is also very similar. The main female interest in both can be violent with the MC when he does anything with another female.
Both animes share a similar sadly dark feeling where the MC is the only person who really cares and tries to save a bunch of 'magical' girls in trouble AND he also develops a romantic relationship with one of the girls.
Not-so-ordinary-harem with pretty girls who are not exactly humans.
"Pretty girl is supposed to kill the group but eventually she will join to them" concept.
Sora no Otoshimono is more comedy and Gokukoku is more gore but I like both of them and story is really quite similiar, I'm quite surprised that I'm the first one making this suggestion :)
Both are fast-paced series with horror elements, that involve the main characters attempting to outwit their mysterious enemies using their intelligence. Brynhildr has more fanservice and more cute girls than Shiki, though.
Everyone seems to be targeted by supernatural phenomenons. Our main characters must solve the mystery behind it. Prevent deaths to come. Both series having that chilling like horror feel. Dark, gory, and thriller. The Opening theme song for both series is very haunting.
Well it deals with aliens first off. Its also about girls enhanced through medical and surgical means to be in super human. Its also ecchi however I enjoyed Byrnhildr in the darkness a little more than freezing.
-medically enhanced female characters
-naive airheads that had bad pasts
-tits.... They're everywhere 😑
-One they are actually fighting the aliens in one of them
-They are both pretty serious anime that sometimes has a light feel but get darker as the show goes on
-Both Male Protagonist Desperately Want To Protect The Female Protagonist
-Both Male Protagonist Have Feelings To The Female Protagonist
-Both Female Protagonist Eventually Develop Feelings To The Male Protagonist
-Have Similar Action
-Somewhat Have A Sexual Scene
-Somewhat Have A Gore Scene
