F/SN UBW and Kara no Kyoukai movie series are part of the Nasuverse, originally produced by Type-Moon. Like any Type-Moon creations, they are dark in its portrayal, showcasing clash in ideals between people who inevitably fight each other. Both are fantasy series in which certain people possess magical/supernatural power.
Both based of Type Moons products, both in the nasuverse, both having awesome animation and fight scenes. Kara no Kyoukai have a mature story and atmosphere.
If you like one, you will most definitely like the other.
The forgotten part of the Nasuverse.
- Same studio but with a film budget
- Complex and interesting characters (if you liked archer you will love Touko)
- same original writer
- a darker tone (for those who thought Zero was better than Stay night)
both are mature stories taking place in and around high school, both feature teenagers struggling to fulfil their inherently flawed ideals, both main characters enter into a tournament where the grand prize is to grant miracles, sword fights are metaphors for idealogical clashes and finally I find Akio & Archer to be very similar characters.
Utena is kinda like female Shirou. Both is a lawful good hero who tried to save people, and both deconstructs heroic figure (hell, what happened to Utena in the end is practically the same as Archer's fate as a guardian and with his role and being tan himself, the Grail War Archer is kinda like Akio on some extent.) Both also has fights, one with good visuals while others with good musics as well as some SoL moments in the story.
I know that these two anime a very different but they do both involve swords. In each anime the mc has fight stronger and more powerful opponents. Both anime also have the same voice actor, Bryce Papenbrook voicing the main character.
* Both are EPIC action/fantasy type of shows.
* Both have Master x Servant relationships...
* Both has ideal MC's ( except Rin from UBW )...who can kickass when needed...
* Masters must be a magicians to have Servants...without magic power/mana they're just weaklings...
* Kill or be killed type of tournaments....
* Both has luckiest MC's ever...
* Both shows has great sidekicks, memorable BGM's....and great art/har designs...
* Must Watch series...to every anime fan/lover or bodypillow warriors xD
I'm surprised nobody mentioned FSN yet.
1. Master and Servant.
2. Servants are considered as tools, but MC treats his Servant as equal.
3. Masters must provide magic on their Servants.
4. Participated in an elimination game.
5. MCs are motivated by their dark pasts.
6. Rin = Charlotte - both are -> MC's dependable companion; considered strong in their field; possible love interest; tsundere.
7. MCs with incredible survival luck.
The set-ups are rather similar. An ordinary high-school student is unexpectedly pulled into a massive battle and teams up with a strong girl to help him survive (though Shirou teams up with two).
Shirou and Yuji both start off weak and are frequently shown to be too helpful for their own good but eventually get much stronger, while Rin and Shana both serve as a sort-of mentor to the male lead and are textbook tsunderes- in fact, they're rivals for the Goddess of Tsundere.
Both are worth a watch, although "Fate/stay night" is much better.
Both animes are death games, where the last surviving player will win something on a mass scale. To survive the death games, the characters participating are given something to help them succeed. In UBW, the characters have servants, who were once heroic spirits, fend for them. However in Mirai Nikki, the characters have personalised future diaries .
Both have a fight to the death where the reward is an all-powerful wish. Lots of action, blood, etc.
Juuni Taisen's characters are based off the Chinese zodiac animals, whereas Fate's is based of historical figures.
Both main characters are thrown into a battle involving the supernatural, and must fight in order to protect innocent people who are inevitably caught up in the conflict. Both have to deal with moral dilemmas of what is right and wrong, how far should one go to protect strangers, and the purpose to fight. In both anime other characters challenge the MC's way of thinking, as every character attempts to progress his or her agenda by killing his or her enemies.
As both anime are action anime, one would enjoy both series for their great fights and duels between either servants or parasites, although F/sn: UBW has the superior animation by far. While both have dark themes, the serious action is often juxtaposed with carefree, peaceful school and family life as well as romance. read more
Although these shows are of different genre, (horror and fantasy), both share striking similarities.
- The two main characters are unwillingly dragged into a war of survival against servants/parasytes
- The ideals and characteristics of the duos are similar. Shirou and Shinichi have a firm belief in not harming or killing innocent people and are weak without their parasyte/servant. Saber and Migi are solely focused on their goal which requires them to protect their master/host at all cost although they see them as just a tool for achieving their goal.
- Both shows revolve around a school setting and its students are in some way affected by the actions of servants/parasytes
- Both main characters hide their secret from others in order to act out a seemingly normal life, not attracting the attention of other servants/parasytes.
Animes where "People Don't Die When They're Killed"!
# where the protagonist seeks a powerfull mysterious mythological object
# where sacrifices are required to save people
# where the antagonists have different motives like greed, lust, pride...
# where a battle needs more strategy then pure strength
A dark non-episodic deep epic story full of action with great animation & soundtracks.
If you have heard of Fate/UBW, then you have probably already watched Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
But if you haven't...then you gotta WATCH IT ASAP!
So I actually watched UBW then Brotherhood, and I was really happy I did in that order as well. Here's the thing: although they are not similar at face value, they pack the same punch. So, I guarantee if you enjoy one then you will enjoy the other.
(Note: I did not watch the original adaptation of FMA because most of my friends recommended that I would personally like Brotherhood better).
Both Re:Creators and Fate/Stay Night UBW are about people summoning important figures from history/literature into the real world, where they fight each other.
Both follow a story of a highschool boy who accidentally meets one of the important figures (Saber/Selesia).
Both have characters that are summon to the real world. The difference is: Fate has historical characters summon to fight against each other in a kind of war, on the other hand, in ReCreators characters from anime, manga, light novel and games are summon to the real world and they don't know why exactly. Both of them have good action scenes. Fate is a more serious one, and ReCreators have a little of comedy in it.
Both MC in these two animes was saved by a girl after getting killed. Both are fantasy anime that are enjoyable and awesome fight scenes. "Fate" is a serious series while "is this a zombie" is more on comedy. enjoy!
This recommendantion considers the two seasons of fate stay night UBW
- both animes have a fantasy plot settled in our world
- most of the characters in both series can use magic
- The characters are complex and have their own ideas, stories and motivations
- Both animes have smart dialogues and unespected twists in the story
- both animes are quite phylosophical in some aspects
- both have good action fights
- the animation and design in both series are nice.
First of all they both have a similar plot in that both are centered around servival of the best.
They both revolve around the characters reciving aid from an ally that is more powerful then themselves.(fate zero is reserected magical super spirit people while beatless is androids with hyber andvanced ai and abilities)
they both have a very interesting cast that all have their own objectives and desires out of these events.
finally they both have many different interesting and changing relations between each character (for fate both spirits and humans, for beatless both android and human)
Grancrest is similar to many of the main Fate series/movies.
(Note - If your new to the Fate franchise, I advise watching by order of release. Many will disagree, but I think it's the best way. Starting with Fate Stay Night - Studio Dean.
- Both have to form pacts/contacts in pairs to fight - GRANCREST has Lord's and Mages and FATE has Master's and Legendary Hero.
- Both fight to obtain the Holy Grail (albeit for different reasons)
- Both have a dark/light or good/evil vibe.
- Both are heavily battle oriented, with great fight scenes.
- Both have romantic elements (though not initially the main focus point)
- Both are in the genres of action, fantasy, magic, supernatural, romance.
All in all they have a lot of similar features.There are lots of differences too but I enjoyed both shows and scored them the same.
Also similar to -
Fate Stay Night - Studio Dean
Fate Zero - Ufotable
Fate Unlimited Blade Works 2nd season - Ufotable
Fate Apocrypha - A-1 Pictures
Note - Check the watch order for Fate.
I started with Studio Deans - Fate Stay Night and then more or less watched in release order.
One doesn't simply question the Unlimited Budget Works.
All jokes aside. If you are a fan of the following genre you might consider investing your time on this two series. Plot, Epic OST/BGM, Fantasy, Overpowering, Having two characters doing two different things in a linear time-line of a video without splitscreen(Both Log and Fate do it without killing your head don't worry), Know what is going on but don't really know what is going on. Yes that a genre.
You can just use a that little perception of yours and still understand what is going on but not 100% sure that is really behind it or go full deep analytical digging every single details and still end up not 100% sure what is really behind it.
Magic is the thing in both shows and plays a key role in the plot.
Only difference is that the both the male and female leads in both shows are opposite in terms of personality and strength.
The art, animation, visuals, and character design are splendid in both shows. Soundtrack in both shows are insanely well done.
The female protagonist depend of the male at the end
Same unsatisfying ending
The female protagonist somehow empower the male protagonist
The "Iwillsacriceforbettermentoftheworld" type of protagonist
Both are shonen series apparently deep but rather childish actually. Both have many grandiose dialogues and the main characters are quite alike. But most of all, I make this recommendations because of the sensation it provokes after watching is so similar.
If you have seen either shows, you will notice something similar. Both installments are darker than their counterparts along with having similar elements. Yusei and Shirou start off with their daily lives only to realize that their destiny is leading them to something greater than they can imagine. They are later accompanied by powerful beings (Stardust Dragon and Saber) along with friends they trust (Ex. Jack, Rua, Ruca, Aki and Rin, Archer). For the most part despite the differences using weapons and cards, the concept of time is used in both series. What is interesting is that SPOILER ALERT: Kirei and Rex are similar as well as Zone and Archer. read more
Similar artstyle and similar start : Mysterious murders happened in the city MCs living at, and as it's revealed the incidents are related with supernatural events the MCs just discovered. The main characters in both anime are teenagers whose powers to summon a supernatural creatures to fight.
Both anime are also adapted from an interactive game/VN with action RPG.
However, Fate/ Stay Night : UBW is more serious and action-focused, while Persona 4, despite also has actions, more excels in its mysteries, comedies and the fun aspects of its characters' interactions.
Ambos tem um grande enredo e épicas lutas de espada, com protagonistas focados em seus objetivos.
Both have a great plot and epic sword fights, with protagonists focused on their goals.
In both shows gods/warriors of the past and from mythologies are manifesting in the modern world and humans with magic fight against or alongside them. Both male MCs aren't knowledgable about myths, history and magic and need the help of the female MCs.
The concept is the same summoner-summoned relationship where the male MC doesnt know much about the new world he has stepped in. Both male MC and his summon(girl) fight against other summoners for their own reasons, but they also gain some friend(s)/companion(s) along the way.
These two anime share so much in common with respect to the circumstances their protagonists find themselves in. Shirou and Kaneki both struggle to hold on to their "Borrowed Ideals" and are always willing to sacrifice themselves for others. If you enjoyed watching this struggle between ideals and reality, Fate/Stay Night UBW will offer you with that same experience.
While the stories and animation styles are quite different, the characters are strikingly similar.
-Araragi and Shirou: both guys trying to "save" everyone, have a harem, try to solve all problems by getting themselves beaten up, have healing abilities
-Senjougahara and Rin: both tsunderes and the girlfriend of the MC
-Oshino and Kiritsugu: father figures who tell the MC that he can't save everyone
-Hachikuji and Illyasviel: both non-human little girls who latch on to the MC
-Sengoku and Sakura: both tormented with serpent-like creatures (snakes or worms), childhood friend of the MC
-Hanekawa and Taiga: both associated with cats and may gain cat-like features when stressed or angry
-Kanbaru and Saber: both somewhat manly, good at physical exertion and fighting read more
if you like fate stay night UBW and Fate Zero try to watch this one to but if you haven't watch fate stay night or fate zero you will have trouble for understanding the plot because everything is explained in the prequels. however this is a same universe with fate stay night and fate zero
Fate Apocrypha is a pararel world of fate zero and fate stay night world
if you can get the 2006, and you are a big fan of the series you can try to watch this but the art quality can be comparable with fate zero and fate stay night UBW
This is the other route for fate stay night because fate stay night is a visual novel that have 3 path way, the last one is Heaven Feels that will be aired in 2017 and have 3 part of movie
The concept is the same summoner-summoned relationship where the male MC doesnt know much about the new world he has stepped in. Both male MC and his summon(girl) fight against other summoners for their own reasons, but they also gain some friends/companions along the way. The summons are historical/heroic/mythical figures.
Holy Grail War=Alice Game, A battle royale setting
Master=Medium, The one who supply the Rozen Maiden/Servant with mana/energy.
7 Servants=7 Rozen Maidens, The one who must fuch each other for the prize
There is actions, character chemistry, and everyday life scenes.
