Both written by the famous Maeda Jun and have the same amazing production behind his works.
Both however could be better if longer, but are still good given their short allotted time slot.
Both will make you smile, laugh, and cry as are typical Maeda Jun's works
Aside from the opening sung by Lia, the animation by P.A.Works, the original concept by Key, the character design by Na-Ga, the soundtrack by ANANT-GARDE EYES, the director being Jun Maeda, the similar humor, the special abilities premise, and unusual-yet-not-unusual school setting-- I could go on-- Charlotte purely -feels- like Angel Beats! and vice versa, if that's any indication. Both are great to watch.
charlotte is basically a rip-off of angel beats except its not in heaven
In charlotte and angel beats both there is (1) a spontaneous and charismatic main girl (2) a glasses guy who serves as the comic relief (3) a clueless main character in the beginning only in charlotte he's more lelouch-esque (4) a lead singer in a girls' band
From the creator and studio right down to the key, sound, premise and themes it is very near identical but the paths that the story takes differ. Both are interesting takes on the Supernatural which is an integral part of the structure of the plot. It provides a catalyst for action, an insight into character, and augments the impact of many key scenes. Angel Beats and Charlotte has a duality about them. The first part is comedy, rather a lot of slapstick and the latter being melodrama that relies on managing the waves of emotion of the viewer though, a problem with this is how the shows transition from these two parts at times and occasionally at the wrong times. Nonetheless if you enjoyed one you are bound to enjoy the other. read more
Same original creator. Also characters' designs were made by the same person, the art style is practically identical. The music was composed by the same creators. The op & ed are performed by the same singers - Lia and Tada Aoi.
Both are about a group od teenagers who have something in common. The action takes place at school, and the MC is a new student.
Charlotte and Angel Beats share the same sense of humor. Also, Charlotte will most likely introduce a fictional singer/band similiar to GirlDeMo in Angel Beats! (Marina, the voice of Iwasawa from Angel Beats! performing an inserted song).
Both are by P.A. Works and Key
Both have a main girl with white hair
Both take place at a school and have supernatural elements
Jun Maeda is the original creator for both
Both have a theme song by Lia and an ending by Aoi Tada
Mosty slice-of-life with a bit of supernatural thrown in, a good amount of comedy, and an action focused last half. While the backgrounds for the main characters may not be addressed during the first few episodes, there's actually a full episode dedicated to establishing Yu and Otonashi later on in their respective anime. Schools are the main settings for these stories, with a group of teenagers being the main focus. While Otonashi and Yu aren't similar at all in terms of initial personality, they have decent development throughout it that can feel about the same in terms of execution, and this is usually right after the episode that details their backstory/background. The endings can also be considered bittersweet. read more
Anime series set in a school with a similar boy and girl MC. Alot of sad pasts and hints for more sadness to come. They both really give out the same vibe with a group who do fun and sad stuff, whatever it is but they'll do it together. They to tend to go out of focus though.
Charlotte and Angel Beats! are very similar to each other. Once you have watched one of them, you need to watch the other. Tomori and Nakaruma both share their leadership roles. Nakamura is the leader of the SSS and Tomori is the leader of the school council. Otanashi and Otosaka are naive, innocent characters, who are at first clueless of what they are doing, and pulled and dragged along by their fellow girl leaders. Memory loss... Retrograde amnesia, is what both Otanashi and Otosaka have. They overcome this by encountering certain things that trigger their memory to remembering the past which they have forgotten. It works for a sense of buildup and suspense.  read more
Both Charlotte, and Angel Beats give off the same feel. The character designs are also pretty similar. Also Charlotte starts out light and funny, (although Angel Beats was funnier) just like Angel Beats did, but then gets more sad and darker.
They have a lot in common! Both manga series are made by the same artist Komowata Haruka, Charlotte's director and Charlotte's sound director worked on Angel Beats! Finally in history, the character will also attend a special school where students have supernatural powers.
Same writer for both shows. Students at a weird school with supernatural powers. The characters, art, and writing are all pretty similar which is to be expected since the same guy wrote them. Good mixture of comedy and feels for both.
Both shows are directed by the same director, so a lot of the influences of Angel Beats transfer over into Charlotte. They have similar humor and the premise of a school with ability users. They honestly just give off the same feel when I watched them. These are honestly both great shows to consider watching!
I don't know why but this Anime just came into mind immediately. School setting. A lot of sad background stories. Student council. Special powers. Both Anime give you the same kind of feel but I'd say Angel Beats goes way deeper in the feel section.
Charlotte and Angel Beats, both animes have a protagonist who joins a group charged with combating a conspiracy (AB is God and in Charlotte are the experiments). Where the leader is manipulative, one believes himself an idol and another is the senpai. Both series involve the fact that the characters acquire a supernatural aspect, be it powers (Charlotte) or be dead (Angel Beats). The series shows the multiple plans to fulfill its mission, where the majority happens in a comic way, to the point that the series does not need to be fun and shows a different background to show the dark past of the protagonist, and a radical change, when the enjoy being with your friends becomes the fear of losing them. read more
There are similar references and situations in both, and they generally have the same "feel" to it. They both have great music, which plays an important part to the plot at some parts. But although both of them have comedic moments and sometimes lowkey ridiculous gags, Charlotte is definitely more serious and maybe even a little bit "dark" towards the ends.
Charlotte is made by the same people who gave us Angel Beats!
Both use similar vivid animation styles and just give off the same general feel you'll get while watching the other. It's hard to explain, but lets say despite the rather different stories, Charlotte is more or less a carbon copy of Angel Beats! with a new plot and new characters.
Both have sad backgrounds, characters are quite similar, the art is somewhat alike, there is great drama, both the main characters have white/silver hair, and there are super powers in both. If you like super powers and drama, you might like Charlotte.
Bedsides just the fact that both series have been written by the same person, designed and animated by the same producers, what makes these series so similar?
First of all, they're both Great comedy series with deep substance. Both got just the right amount of humor that anyone is sure to enjoy.
And besides that, they're of the most exciting series ever. Both of some fast pacing and only you're in, it's like a rollercoaster. You can't stop watching once you start. There's many reference to AB! in Charlotte too.
While they're different in the theme and mood, they've got some deep hidden themes. While Angel Beats! focuses on the meaningfulness of life , Charlotte's hidden massage lies in the power of courage. If you can understand those, they're sure to become your most favorite series ever.
What else do they share in common:
-Great and likeable characters
-Meaningful songs and in-anime bands
-Great visuals and OST
-Fish Saito and Sky-High Saito! read more
They have a similar feel to it.
Angel Beats starts off sort of silly but with a paranormal twist to it. Even thought it sounds like it could get serious, it mostly tries to keep a focus on the comedy side. Still it gets dark and sad at times, but it tries to balance them out.
Charlotte also has a similar start. There are mostly jokes and fun times at the start, but things get more serious as the story progresses. The difference is that once the seriousness starts, there aren't many comedic moments afterwards.
Still, both series are quiet entertaining to watch with their mix of supernatural and daily lifestyle combined. If you liked Angel Beats there is a chance you might like Charlotte and vice versa.  read more
Made by same people, and both have a similar idea (school/supernatural/romance).
Both Charlotte and Angel Beats! are great anime, each in their own right. For Angel Beats!, I recommend giving it at least 3 episodes before deciding whether to continue or drop it.
I found Charlotte and Angel Beats! to be extremely similar. They're both original works by Jun Maeda, and are both by the studio PA Works, so it's no wonder why they turned out like that.
Everything except the premises, the basic plot lines, of these two shows are practically identical. Art, animation, characters, comedy, pacing, aesthetic, music, supernatural elements... going back to the characters, I'm pretty sure Charlotte's cast is basically a bunch of carbon copies of Angel Beats! characters minus a few people.
Now, personally I hated both of these shows, so if you dislike one, you more than likely are going to dislike the other as well.
But if you like one, then you'll probably like the other as well. Probably. Although I'd say Charlotte's giant gaping plot holes and inconsistencies are less noticeable than Angel Beats!'s.
Throughout my time watching Angel Beats!, I could not stop comparing it to Charlotte. They're too alike! read more
1. Both were written by the Same Person.
2. Both about High-school youths.
3. Both have the same light-mood and funny atmosphere in the first couple of episodes.
4. Both MC remember their forgotten sad past in the middle of the series.
5. Both have sad deaths.
6. Both have an ending that will make u shed lots of tears.
7. Both turn serious at the last episodes of the series.
8. Both have a good plot twist :'D.
Both shows have a similar artstyle and (personally) I find them very pretty. The story is deep in both cases, and you just want to watch more of it. Also, both anime have a "good" ending, as you don't mind the story finishing there. Lastly, these two series have many different characters, and a love story which isn't ecchi or harem (FINALLY!).
These both are very good animes that will make u cry to death.Like angel beats this has:
a good story
a good ending
and is super Awesome
i loved this soo much and idk how but i thought of angel beats every time i watched a episode
-Characters have supernatural power and they attend special schools where students have supernatural powers.
-Both main girls characters have silver hair.
-Both shows are made by the same producers and have the same artist singing the op/ed song.
-Contains romance and tragedy aspects.
The series are similar dramas from the same creators. They both have characters with special abilities in them and both the protagonists join a group in a school and do missions for them. If you like the type of emotional storytelling Key Studios is known for, you should enjoy both the series.
Both are produced by P.A. Works and Maeda Jun. Second, Charlotte is littered with Angel Beats references, and I mean littered. Also, you will board the feels train, cuz this is Maeda Jun we are talking about. An excellent portrayal and Maeda's second chance at a fantastic creation
it's made by the same author and studio
~both story lines are identical if i may say..
~both have similar great art and character, and both are a school, drama and Superpowers shows, almost the same at everything.
~both are 13 episode long, short and easy to watch.
~both will leave you crying at the end of it....
Time for pointing the similarities between these two shows.
Both Charlotte and Angel Beats:
- Were written by Jun Maeda.
- Are from the same studio, P.A. Works.
- Have School setting.
- Know how to explore the relationship between it characters.
- Are short anime. (13 episodes long)
- Have funny and sad moments.
1. Same staff that worked on Angel Beats.
2. Similar characters
3. Nice animation and soundtrack
Both anime's are so alike that people even theorize that maybe the two animes are connected somehow. Enjoy!
From the same studio, and a story just as beautiful. This is an example of how two different stories look a like so much. You can also find the personalities of all Charlotte characters back in Angel Beats (reincarnations?).
They're written by the same writers, the female protagonist looks exactly like Angel, protagonist has a sappy back story, high school setting, music inserted via a pop idol + pop rock band, tsundere protagonist who's bossy, leader of the group, misunderstood and hence disliked by others, lonely.... does this sound like anybody else? Yeah, she's a mish-mash of Yuki and Angel.
Loads of other similarities too, including how the series jumps from comedy to drama to loads of other things I can't mention because I don't want to spoil the series.
They are both written by Jun Maeda and have a somewhat similar format. They also both have strong insert songs sung by Marina for their fictional bands (Zhiend and Girls Dead Monster). Heck, even the OP and ED are sung by the same people. The MC’s memories and sisters also play an important role in the MC’s character and actions.
so watching these, you might not catch it at first but the animes have the same atmosphere. A group of kids trying to make it by while still having that kind of sad feel to it, it's made by the same person so that's also probably why it has the same feel. But do check it out if you havent already. The anime is great, also has a nice story to it
I'm not telling you that both theses shows are the same because the opening has the same animation quality, the opening music brings the same feelings, the set-up is the same, the character set-up is the same, the cruel world in which they live in is cruel, the characters have tragic pasts, the characters from both shows have a lot in common, the art style is the same and the plot twists brings the same feelings
but yeah, I'm telling you that both these shows are the same.
I did not like both of these anime due to how messy their stories were, but if you like to watch stuff that might as well make you cry, smile, and laugh, then check both of them out. They were made by the same writer, Maeda Jun.
In the beginning, the main was either confused or used something wrong. In the middle, they both figure out what they are actually supposed to do and can make a big difference in the world. They fall in love with another (girl ofc).
Charlotte and Angel Beats! are different but they share something similar, both are emotional as well.
You like music? Good.
Angel beats is about a load of young people who were killed. For some reason they were tormented, and forced to live forever in a high school. In this, they set themselves a target for the biggest bullies who ever died. Bullying this young girl who doesn't communicate well with others, they force her to develop new ways to manipulate her body for defense.
In the anime, these stubborn children refuse to come to terms with their deaths and move on. It isn't until very late in the anime when they are forced to give up immortality that they actually move on. Up till that point, you are allowed to enjoy some of the most heart warming scenes ever put into an anime, as well as one of the best soundtracks.
Charlotte tells of a boy with powers who meets other adolescents with powers. In the end it resorts to time travel. These kids, with fantastic abilities, are hunted down and tested on like lab rats for being special. As a result, the main character and pals try to save the others.
The anime has a lot of good music in it, and has a few episodes that focus a lot on the band that you'll probably forget the name of after watching Angel Beats. Z something or the other.... Anyway the lead singer is blind. The anime uses impairments a fair bit as a way of getting you to feel for a characters situation. One of the side characters is mentally unstable, and only Z's music can calm him down. The power of music!
So if you like music with a side story of action, then these two anime are well worth watching. read more
Impacted with the idea of supernaturalism, both are original stories written by Jun Maeda with similarities alike to one another. While they started off as lighthearted comedies with a tinge of silliness, the group of teenagers will have to face emotional turmoils leading up to drama, action, and subtle romance. Backed by a beautiful quality in audiovisual, these two are the manifestation of a touching tale.
Both series are created by the fabulous Jun Maeda, are adapted from Key visual novels, supernatural and school setting, features a main character with silver hair (Angel & Nao), and the series opening and ending were sung by Lia and Aoi Tada, respectively.
These are quite different shows tonally, so the enjoyment of both shows would mainly rely on one's enjoyment of watching high school kids using super powers. These shows both are set in a high school full of super-powered teens. It's always entertaining to see the different techniques characters use to apply their powers to a situation, and how two or more characters' powers interact with each other. With these powers also comes the theme of the pressure these characters face by being thrust into difficult situations that kids their age in our universe would never have to deal with.
Both anime have the concept of “superpowers” but they see it in different lights. In Boku no Hero, it's not a sickness and it's more common. Instead of it being looked down upon, people idolize those with good superpowers. If you want to see a kid fighting for his dreams, Boku no Hero is for you. You end up really rooting and feeling for the main character.
Well, if you know what both of these shows are about, it's pretty obvious what these shows have in common. I'm far from the first person to make this recommendation. But, while the shows are very different in tone, and liking one is not a very good guarantee you will like the other, the simple plot point that these shows share is enough to justify this recommendation. In both shows some people have superpowers. Charlotte is not a superhero anime, but the characters do have superpowers. Beware though, Charlotte is a bit darker than Hero Aca. Wait... no that show can be very dark sometimes. So actually they're similar even in that regard. read more
Both featured children with superpowers (Specail Abilities for Charlotte and Quirks for MHA) and high school setting. The difference is that in Charlotte, their powers are classified as a disease because in My Hero Academia/Boku no Hero Academia is considered a gift.
Main character possesses the power to control people using his eyes, both powers require eye contact and are somewhat restricted.
Said powers are used mainly to achieve MC's selfish goals, sometimes disregarding all the consequences.
Other people are able to use powers of their own, however they are different from the MC's.
Both main character are very theatrical and use excessive gestures.
Annoying sister is only a cherry on top.
- the MC has the power to control a person for a certain amount of time and cannot use it multiple times on the same person
- excessive hand movements and use their eye for their power
- villianous in some ways and mischievous
- younger sister who is enthusiastic
- family problems
- involved in the student council
- meets girl who is a bit indifferent and has a super ability
Charlotte is code geass version with no action, mecha, armors, geass, sci-fi, immortal girl, politics war, pizza girl (oh leave it), and some idealism inside..
beside it, both have strange girl, main hero with a badass-evil and fake smile with the power in their eyes (also the power isn't same), cool-but-baka partners/friends, super power, good strategy/tactics (i'm think code geass is more of tactics), and drama that can drop your tears ..
With the different and similarities from both series, we can conclude that Charlotte is Slice of life and reality version of Code geass with less tactics and strange heroine.
The personality and the abilities of the main characters are very similar. Both have the power to control other people and are faced with a choice of whether to use it for their selfish goals or for greater good.
These anime are about a guy with supernatural powers that he has little control over. He is able to take control over other people, but this is power is very limited. He later understands that time travel is the only way to save the ones he loves. If you want a gripping supernatural romance the one you haven't seen should keep your interest.
-It all started with a comet
-Hint of romance
-Both are about a boy and a girl
-Alike story progression
-Both are drama/school
Also, in Kimi no Na wa, the two people switch bodies, on the other hand in Charlotte, Yuu could possess ones body.
Both are very dramatic and has a bit of fantasy and sci fi. Both also very calm and soothing to watch.
Both anime are telling about people who got 'abilities' like switching places (kimi no na wa) and other powers (charlotte).
Both anime involves comet.
In kimi no na wa, the comet is something that become the trigger of the whole story.
In charlotte, the comet named charlotte is the one that gives abilities to teenagers which is the main of the story.
Both animations have a comet as the origin of their story's conflict.
Both animations deal with adolescent life.
Both animations deal with the main characters' development as a person.
Both have Sci-Fi (in this case Time Travel) elements that is used as the solution to the protagonists' problems.
Both are intense love stories beyond its supernatural atmosphere.
Charlotte starts off like most Key series. A lighthearted beginning with a forced tragic ending. It even has an innocent naive girl (Yusa) common in all Key series. You will see similar themes in Madoka Magica: innocent girls with seemingly funny stories in the beginning but becomes tragic in the end. However the folks at Key seemed to copy the plot of Madoka into this show. I won't reveal any spoilers but involves having the main character saving those who face potential anguish. Essentially taking in the burdens of others for themselves becoming a Christ-like figure.
Both of these shows explore the realm of saving people (that's all I can without spoiling). The love between each of the characters is definitely and visibly what drives them. Both of these show also explore the duality of hope and despair, although Madoka Magica does it on a much more contrasting manner.
The music of both anime is quite amazing, and although the art style is different, both are refreshing in their own ways (with Madoka being more abstract and Charlotte being more "normal").
If you enjoyed one, chances are you'll enjoy the other!
Change the fate and saving a important person with the power of time ..
thats presented from both series, the power of time ..
Both have moe design with some dark theme and despair ..
with these unique plot, they become interesting show and very nice ..
Built on the theme of the opportunities granted by superpowers and the sacrifices that come with them. Unfortunately hamstrung by one-cour length, resulting in insufficiently developed characters and plot.
Both Madoka Magica and Charlotte have supernatural elements involved, as well as a seemingly light, fluffy start that takes and a darker, tragic turn. Both protagonists have strong sense of hope and become "heroes".
Both deal with trying to help or deal with other ability users that have caused havoc or have their own problems. It has the same premise of possessing an ability that only lasts for their entirety of their high school lives.
There are many funny moments as well as many sad stories of each featured character in both animes.
Main characters have unique powers only they can use. Those who have such powers are gathered in one place. Similar powers such as switching bodies, turning invisible and more. Both have comedy, romance and drama. One deals with witches and the other something other worldly.
girls around the mc , mc who how looks a bad person in the beggining and then gets a better person, powers that came out in a teenager age and disapear some years later when they grow in adults , if you like one you will like the other.
Both works are related to the powers that teenagers end up winning due to certain cirscunstâncias and last until the end of his adolescence. The works also deal with the problems these teenagers end up having because of the powers and the help they end up with their friends, both animes possuim a humorous side and a suspenseful side added the plot but without taking his serious side related to history .
Charlotte and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (or Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) focus towards a group of students who have their own supernatural abilities such as teleporting, invisibility, etc. Some characters even have a depressing backstory or life in general yet they keep their heads held high
The group of friends or acquaintances set a goal to find other people with supernatural abilities like them to accomplish something important using teamwork
Yu's possession ability is somewhat similar to Yamada's ability of switching bodies bodies with people, . Characters have the potential gaining powers similar to Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo where becoming a witch, allowing them to gain a power.
-high school setting
-high school club
-a tad of mystery
Both series include a group of high school students that join a club. In Kokoro Connect, this is a club that friends are in together. In Charlotte, the 'club' is the student council. In Charlotte, however, the abilities are all different and are used on a voluntary basis. In Kokoro Connect, the abilities the club receives are not voluntary.
If you like high school 'drama' and supernatural elements such as powers and abilities, Charlotte may interest you just as much as Kokoro Connect did!
They're surrounded by supernatural things. Both of them are bunch of high schoolers and their power basically were given to make everything better. They are funny and cute plus their ending were so unpredictable. If you like supernatural love comedy, you should watch them. I prefer Kokoro Connect btw.
Kokoro Connect is centered around a group of teenagers and their relationships that are manipulated by random supernatural events, but the characters of Charlotte are in the driver's seat of their abilities. A diverse set of characters with powerful (and sometimes comical) abilities makes Charlotte a great watch for those who enjoyed Kokoro Connect and its subtle supernatural, high school mystery style.
Both are shows have supernatural/mystery elements. Both shows feature a group of teenagers in a high school setting who possess super/supernatural powers and abilities. The main difference between the two shows is in Kokoro Connect, the characters seemingly have no control over their abilities while the characters in Charlotte somewhat have control over their powers. Both shows have a similar feeling and give you a similar experience and both rely heavily on the drama and emotional aspects.
-young male 'hero'
-high school setting
While they may not seem super similar in terms of plot, Guilty Crown features a male protagonist that winds up with an ability he does not know the full extent of, just as in Charlotte. Both use these abilities to save many people. In Charlotte, abilities are the norm while in Guilty Crown, 'voids' (manifestations of one's soul/heart) is the norm. The main characters both use others' abilities/voids to their advantage to help others. Both take place in a high school setting.
If you loved the supernatural elements, thrill and hero protagonist in Charlotte, you'll love Guilty Crown!
Many have complaints about the character development and overall plot of Guilty Crown, so I believe Charlotte is an anime that takes the same formulas but works them together much better. Although Charlotte's protagonist, Yuu Otosaka, is fairly OP, he has a few more checks and balances than Guilty Crown's Ouma Shu. Despite not being entirely scientifically accurate, the backstory of Charlotte is also more plausible and flushed out than Guilty Crown. The leading lady Nao Tomori is also far less submissive and annoying than Yuzuriha Inori. Even so, the character development in Charlotte is not any more spectacular than Guilty Crown, but it's still tolerable. The animation is just as good, though not as sci-fi or shiny as Guilty Crown, but the fight scenes are also well-done, nonetheless. read more
Guilty Crown and Charlotte share a similar concept in which the main character has the power to use other peoples' "abilities". Both characters are forced into similar situations, and also display extreme pressure in taking the heavy role of "saving the world". Both anime have amazing visuals, however, they lack in the plot development and construct department, so be prepared for another disappointment.
Both main characters are blessed with supernatural powers that could save the world and high school setting.
Both main characters use their abilities to heal other people infected with abilities (in Voids and Ability users infected by Charlotte) with a great cost (amnesia for Yuu and blindness for Shuu)
the Mc's both have a scarily similar feel to them; honestly it feels like i'm watching the same character but in a different anime.
they also give a very relaxing feel mixed with supernatural elements that make the shows unique and easy to watch and enjoy.
They are both amazing short anime, quite nerve wrecking and might i say both of the Male MC is conceited (But they're both still really hot)
- Includes supernatural and fantasy-like plot
- Both Female MC are very cute. +Very kuudere
- Amazing climax and ending you'd rewatch it like idk a few times
- A very heart-warming story that would touch your heart
Charlotte and Amagi Brilliant Park have the same kind of vibe about it, and both animes have some connection with a form of supernatural power about each other.
MC starts off being dragged into something he'll never get out of, next thing you know he drags himself deeper because of another characters statements.
Both of these seriess deal with students with superpowers in an ordinary school setting. Sagrada Reset focuses comes across as much more dialogue based and serious, whereas Charlotte is more light-hearted and focuses more on light comedy and humor. If you like one you will probably like the other.
Same super-power wielding students. The difference is that in charlotte, they have a organization where they gather all the teenagers with supers powers while in inou-battle they are already in a club before they "awaken" theirs.
Both are about humans gaining superpowers. The main casts are both teenagers who have to keep their secret a secret. Also of one member their (almost) useless and imperfect abilities turn out to be one of the strongest!
High Schoolers with unbelievable Super Powers, Romance involve(InoBato isn't that romantic though :c). Charlotte isn't a harem anime but InoBato seems to be, I don't know why it doesn't have the harem genre. Both Animes Are Really Enjoyable c:
Very similar. Extreme plot twists and many other similarities that I can't say without spoiling one or the other. If you like one, you're sure to like the other! Lovable characters and great, captivating, gripping plotlines.
A boy who suffers a great tragedy attempts to redirect the course of his life through supernatural means. One-cour length series shows initial promise but is ultimately crippled by inadequate development of characters; ineffective communication of overarching themes; and a hollow, abrupt timeskip conclusion with feel-good intentions that fails to deliver.
the similarities between these two anime is that they have memories lost. If you like Erased because of the unexpected events, I would greatly recommend Charlotte as there are also many unsuspected events that happened and is very enjoyable to watch.
Both have really big plot twists you wouldn't expect and both cover people with disabilities and or unfair life chances. They both have very lovable characters too so i would really recommend you watch this if you enjoyed Charlotte as much as me!
The main characters(most of them) have special abilities having to do with their eyes such as turning invisible to specific people.
The main character also starts off simple fun but nothing special until the halfway point where he's upset over something bad happening to a person he was really close to. They're also a secret group of teenagers.
Male protagonist who is fighting to save those he loves with the support of those around him. You have to watch the entire anime if you want to unravel the mysteries and get the entire story. These two animes have a lot in common, but I do not want to spoil anything.
The core elements are what obviously link the two animes. Lovely optimistic characters, good story line with dramatic depth twist and humor. Steins gate got it all. Charlotte is good but not as detailed as steins gate is with double the amount of episodes. So if you enjoyed Charlotte you might get a really lucky find with steins gate.
But otherway round also works ;P
Although likely different genres, both shows follow a similar pattern involving a slow, slice of life, buildup with foreshadowing throughout the first few episodes, then picking up in a big way halfway through the show.
Both shows involve saving a loved one, a side (just a bit) of romance (both only at the ending), and some time-travel. Both gave me an emotional rollercoaster, so if you love that kind of stuff then that would be great for you. Pretty cool fictional concepts that aren't too much out of the world.
Both shows focus on people who were born with or acquired special abilities.
Both main protagonists of each show had dark and sad pasts and they're trying to overcome them by stopping those who abuse their special abilities and saving those who posses similar powers also from normals and their fellow people.
They also had bad encounters and experiences with scientists who want to experiment their abilities.
Anyway, what makes both of these shows different from each other is that in Charlotte their abilities are temporary until they reach a certain part of their life when it is no longer there while on the other hand, the potential Minimum Holders in Hamatora have to have their abilities tested or have their triggers identifies to be recognize with such position or title.  read more
Hamatora is a mix of supernatural, comedy and some mystery. Charlotte is exactly that there are funny part there are serious part. Hamatora also features a small ability known as minimum which is much similar to ability used in Charlotte (A Small ability which come with its own limitation). Hamatora and Re: Hamatora follows a somewhat darker storyline which charlotte only have towards the end.
There are people with supernatural abilities, but that's not the reason I think you'd like Charlotte if you liked Hamatora and vice versa. Both series start as light-hearted comedies - Hamatora as a random action-comedy and Charlotte as an episodic slice-of-life comedy where the characters help out other people with powers, not entirely unlike Natsume Yuujinchou. But eventually, both animes turn pretty dark, while still maintaining comedy elements. Overall, Hamatora is longer and more focused on action and excitement than Charlotte, which has more drama in it. If you like captivating and emotional stories that still crack a few jokes throughout the dark plotlines, these two (or three, because Hamatora consists of two seasons and the second season is what really made it as great as it is) deserve a place on your list. read more
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.
Both center around a group of psychical-ability wielders who disguises themselves as a group of high-school students that take part on various activities, under the name of SOS Brigade and Hoshinoumi's Student Council. Both groups are composed of similar characters : socially-outcast girl who leads the group, reluctant MC and his cute little sister, etc.
Haruhi tries to find them to recruit them into her club, while Nao for the sake of securing them from evil scientists.
High school students with special abilities in a club trying to find more people with special abilities. Somewhat similar characters (Nao = Haruhi + Yuki, Yuu = Kyon + Itsuki). Baseball episode. Alternates between character-based slice of life and supernatural drama.
Esper... human who have unusual special ability. This both series will give you a story about a group of espers. And of course, there is a good espers and bad espers. Good espers will protect ordinary people (non-esper) and other espers from bad espers who will harm them. Yuu (Charlotte) and Rinka (Tokyo ESP) just ordinary high school students at the beginning. But everything change when they realized that they have something different from other people. Curious? Just watch both series and you will join Yuu and Rinka to the world of espers
Both are about highschool students with superhuman abilities. Both also has similar artwork since they are both made by key. As you guys already know, key makes mostly emotional animes so i am sure you guys can be hyped to get ready for the feels (sadness, happiness? Anything... i wont spoil) I m sure you guys will like this anime even if they have different plots. They are similar in one way or another.
Both series have the setting of ordinary students who possess supernatural powers with a dark story behind the scenes regarding the experiments scientists do only difference is in Charlotte people with powers are not made public while in Toaru they are
Trinity Seven and Charlotte are shows about children with special powers. Both anime have a similar setting and the cast of characters have a lot in common (just think about the Sherlock sisters from Trinity and Yusa and Misa from Charlotte).
A Main Male Protagonist Has Insanely Powerful Powers, Arata from T7 is the Demon King and Yuu from Charlotte, and doesn't even realise how powerful they really are, AT ALL.
Both are surrounded by people they never knew, but now have come to love and share friendship with.
T7 is based on Mages (Strega) and actual magic, Where as in Charlotte it's more scientifically focused and doesn't involve magic.
this is my first entry but i'll try my best so let's get started
#both of them have romance in them but chuunibyou has more.
#both of main characters are dragged to join a club.
#both of them have something for super powers.
Both anime with funny school life comedy
Both anime equally funny if not Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! is funnier
Both Female Mc have the same VA (Uchida Maaya)
But in Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Not only comedy but it has a good plot and plenty of great action scenes.
It can make you die of laughter at the same time it also can make you cry.
If you're looking for a loner main protagonist, I'll recommend you to try charlotte.
As a guy, we are looking the same kind of MC right? cuz its cool not just the coolness of the characters, it's the story. is it great? yes! it was great and I can call it a masterpiece. both series shares the same man sided romantic ride. :D
Both stories are, of course, set in high school but there's more than that. The main characters share experiences: making new friends in a brand new school, adventures to find a truth or build a relationship, and a good opening... Both shows also focus on a 'minority' group of students (geniuses? in Youkoso and kids w/powers in Charlotte).
Also, I watched them each in 3 days... what am I doing with my life...
Both anime involve characters with abilities but they have restriction on using them both are very well made amazing story and art style one is the abilities are held by anyone and the other only teens can have abilities.
After a certain phenomenon, humans who developed supernatural abilities are starting to appear. Some are able to control it, some aren't, some use it for misdeeds.
Main characters and co. go after them to prevent more chaos.
Although Charlotte has more comedic start while DtB have more stoic-ish feel, both shows are pretty dark.
Angel beats is the hit show for 2010, 5 years later another show done by the same ppl made Charlotte which is not as good as the PA works premiere show and biggest show.
Kill la kill made it big in 2013, 3 years later another show was done by the same creators and made Kiznaiver, again not as good as the Trigger premiere and biggest show.
what im trying to say is that Charlotte and kiznaiver where both done by the same animation studio that has done big hits.
not anything cool in both shows, its kinda like an "if you watched Kill la kill, watch Kiznaiver!" or "if you watched Angel beats, watch Charlotte!" read more
If you liked the idea of teenagers with powers but aren't a fan of the big shot superhero shows these days then I think this is a must watch for you!
Odd phenomenon appearing in young children in japan is an obvious place to start us, no one knows why it's happening but some think it'll come in handy. We start our journey, well story in a city in japan and with some young feisty teens trying to work with their powers though what they're doing with them differs I think the enjoyment will carry over.
There's not a lot that can be said without spoiling the show but more similarities are made the further you progress into the show, Art, for example, is a character you may find yourself seeing mirrored in Charlotte more than you'd think.
I know I haven't really said enough to sway you but that in itself is what I hope will push you to check out this beautifully animated series, let the curiosity carry you to go and watch Charlotte's rollercoaster of emotions that Hamatora once made you feel!
This goes to any Toaru Majutsu No Index/Toaru Kagaku No Railgun anime. However, I am only going to focus on Railgun this time.
- Ability users
- Main characters use abilities for good purposes
- A group of four people (Main Characters)
- Both groups supposedly have the strongest or one of the strongest ability users
1. Main protagonist is boy (Charlotte)
1. Main protagonist is girl (Railgun)
2. Group of 2 boys and 2 girls (Charlotte)
2. Group of all girls (Railgun)
3. Ability is apparently a disease (Charlotte)
3. Ability is a strength/gift. (Railgun)
4. Ability can be found all around the world (Charlotte)
4. Ability is mainly found in Academy City (Railgun)
Both have a satisfying ending, although with both there are many questions left unanswered the ending is something the audience can live by. I would recommend this to anyone stuck with nothing 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.
If you like the feel of a slice of life anime but, near the end things get serious. Then these are for you.
They are both a easy watch and they can be watched [ and if you are really determined you can watch the second season of medaka box]
YES THEY BOTH HAVE DUBS!
enjoy crying....IM MEAN LAUGHING
I planned on getting into details, but it turned out to be a gigantic spoiler, so instead I will just put this simple. At first glance these shows have little in common, but after you finish Flip Flapppers you realize, that in fact the theme of the shows was quite similar.
These 2 worlds have an aspect of magic, even though Charlotte has more uses of the powers in their universe, Zetsuen also implements magic really well.
The MC's are both men who have lost someone before (a bit different in Charlotte's case though) Zetsuen has a completely different story and the way magic / powers are used but I really enjoyed it.
It does get confusing however it is worth the watch (both feature romance to some degree but I feel that Zetsuen has more romance in it)
I'd also like to recommend to watch Zetsuen as it really makes you think, then the typical supernatural / magical anime. Though you can guess plot lines as it can be quite generic at some points however I feel the story has a good strong plot to it that isn't so similar to Charlotte however it does give off some nostalgia in some areas such as art and visuals. read more
Charlotte and Bungou Stray Dogs (BSD) 2nd Season are both about people with supernatural abilities trying to find justice. Although both have comic relief, they both weave in darker elements involving the main characters' backgrounds. Also the main characters of Charlotte share a bit of Dazai's OP-ness. However, Charlotte has quite a bit of romance, unlike BSD, but overall I put them both in high regard.
both have the similiar characters. kousei and otosaka as the main character who have a flat life, then both of them meet the cheerfull girls that changed them life(?). but the most tragic is shigatsu wa kimi no uso T_T
Not much similarities in terms of the characters but I recommended this because both anime deal with a bunch of students with abilities trying to deal with others, which have the same abilities/conditions in their world and trying to "save" them.
Like Noragami, Charlotte features characters with special abilities. In Noragami the characters are gods and phantoms, the characters in Charlotte are more like superheroes. But both series have a serious storyline with very comedic situations mixed in. Both are blends of drama and comedy.
Okay, let's see..
at first, I think its not really similar, its just similar in both hero evil laugh. But when i watch 8 eps of charlotte, i discover that some characters are too similar like Nao + Yusarin = Misa, Yuu = Light (in some case they're similar) and many more ..
and do you know? Some scene in this both are similar if u watched carefully ..
both hero are very potential to rule the world with his power (Yuu with his looting power and Light with his death note). But with these powers too, sometime both characters will looks like the antagonist..
In Death note, you'll be served with a mind-battle and more strategy and Charlotte delivers a struggling-against fate show ... read more
Both have an abnormal story setting. Also the characters have very similar properties. However there are some differences such as the genre types of supernatural for Glasslip and super power for Charlotte, or the character development such as for Charlotte they use singular character development and for Glasslip they use multi character development. But, overall there are many more similarities than differences. If you liked Charlotte you'll probably like Glasslip if your into the whole supernatural genre.
If you have a desire for more special ability children in high school. Nerawareta is the weaker link in my own personal opinion. Both of these can be frustrating for some people who dislike too much Drama but well worth the watch regardless.
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
Charlotte really reminded me of both seasons of Tokyo Ghoul combined. From the way in which certain group are targeted (sometimes in a very cruel way) for what they are and how the main character tries to take the burden of putting an end to that on himself. I found the Ken/Touka and Nao/Yuu relationships to be quite similar. Also both anime had at times a sad/desperate/tragic tone to them.
Both Charlotte and Mawaru Penguindrum involve teenagers who are somewhat special and get caught up in a lot of supernatural stuff. They center on orphaned brothers who go to great lengths to protect their younger sisters, with the younger sisters being cute and innocent as well as the caretakers of the household. While Mawaru Penguindrum is much more surreal and utilizes a lot of symbolism, Charlotte is shorter and more direct with its premise. However, both anime gave me a similar emotional feeling and if you watch both, you'll definitely see a lot more thematic similarity that I won't go into detail with because of spoilers. read more
I think it's similar because it has alot of characters in it with different powers and/or weapons and that they have something important that they have to do together.
There are many funny moments as well as many sad stories of each featured character in both animes. [ AgK has more of them]
The music of both anime is quite amazing, and although the art style is a little bit different, both are refreshing in their own ways
AgK ending was so freakin sad....!!!! Charlotte's ending was - mehhh....
These series are both absolute eye-candy. The backgrounds in both of them are bright, colorful and simply beautiful. The animation is fluid and flawless. The effort that is put into the appearance also enhances the emotional impact of the drama that both of these series contain.
-Both MCs are school students who got involved in the world where only certain people have different super powers.
-They got one of the most powerful powers.
-If you liked Nao Tomori from Charlotte, then you might like Izzie from Taboo Tattoo too.
The characters on these two shows possess special abilities that varies from one person to another. Another similarity is the characters are gathering members with special abilities to join their group.
Pritty much anime any with Supernatural is bound to have something like superpowers. So this is an anime that tells an interesting story of a boy with superpowers meeting other character with superpowers. It starts off slow and funny, however after the mid part it begins to really show it's strong points. The opening is AMAZING IMO. The characters are actually interesting and the sittuations they run in-to are kind of average but the way they handle them is diffrent from the traditional heroes way. If you have the paitence to watch it till the end you will not regret it ! It starts of slow and funny but ends really strong and hard ! I gave it a 9/10 because it made me feel happy as much as it made me sad and i never EVER skipper the openning ! IMO this is a hidden gem that needs to get more popular ! read more
