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

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.

Similarities: -young male 'hero' -supernatural/ability elements -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!

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.

Similarities: -high school setting -high school club -supernatural elements -'powers' -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!

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.

Both animes have similar MCs. I honestly found Amagi Brilliant Park while trying to find more shows with MCs like that of Charlotte. If you liked the MC's personality in this you'll like Charlotte.

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.

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  read more

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.

Having a supernatural ability may not be as advantageous as one might think and can lead to severe issues in the person's life. The series feature supernatural phenomenons taking place around teenagers. Both main characters end up helping others affected by these abnormalities but may eventually need help with their own situation as well.

This goes to any Toaru Majutsu No Index/Toaru Kagaku No Railgun anime. However, I am only going to focus on Railgun this time. Similar : - 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 Different: 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.

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.

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.

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 /  read more

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.

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).

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.

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.

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  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.

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....

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.
