Same setting: United States, Prohibition area. While Baccano! has a more unique way to tell a story and fantasy elements, 91 Days manages to be just as entertaining with a more straightforward plot and an actual ending. Also with mafia characters, blood and violence, 91 Days is perfect if you want to fill the void left by Baccano! It did for me, at least.
91 Days and Baccano are both set in the American 1920/30s, with similar animation styles. Both revolve heavily around mafia v. mafia and involve both knife and gun fights.
The main differences and that Baccano has more of a fantasy element and also can be a bit lighter (because of its comedic characters). Seeming to the contrary, Baccano is also a bit more graphic violence wise.
But overall, very similar atmosphere in both shows.
If you're looking for a really amazing mafia anime then look no further! Both include similar themes whilst being very different in many ways but both can keep you on the edge of your seat with the amazing story and tension.
The time periods of 91 Days and Baccano! are in the prohibition era of America, with a rich historical feel to them. Baccano! and 91 Days have the main characters of the show apart of mafias. However, 91 Days is a bit more serious and dark-toned compared to Baccano!'s friendship mystery. Nonetheless, these animes are both highly enjoyable to watch.
It is quite similar to Baccano in many ways. I'll keep this short: same type of storytelling, same atmosphere, this anime awakens the same feeling of anticipation as Baccano does, very tense, dark and interesting plot, setting of the story is in Prohibition-era in USA, mafia clans and wars included. It also looks like it will be brutal and it will involve a lot of vengance and character interweaving. 10/10 so far.
Both shows take place during the early 1900s and show the seeded underbelly of society during that era. Containing similar art direction, color palettes and sound mixing, these titles feel like they share the same universe. Taku Kishimoto is also credited for his Series Composition contributions on both titles as well. They're titles that gravitate away from the usual anime trappings, taking more influence from the world of cinema instead. If you enjoy the tone and atmosphere of one, there's a high chance you'll like the other.
- both shows take place around a similar era (early 90s)
- both show are spy animes
- similar artstyle
- both have betrayal as a main theme
- both start off slow but picks up in the middle
- both have an satisfying ending (imo)
- both targets the same mature audience
Joker Game is about a spy agency before the second world war and each episode talks about a story of an individual spy while 91 Days is a show about a kid seeking revenge for his family against the marfia, as he infiltrates the marfia family and tries to take out whoever killed his family.
Personally I feel like 91 Days is a more superior show as the ending is more satisfying and the story is more intense while in Joker Game, since you get one episode per spy, you dont build up that connection with the spy therefore you wont really feel anything that happens to him. read more
We have 2 anime airing in 2016 about the mafia, spying and a lot of betrayals during the 90's.
Similar artwork, smart characters, and sneaky schemes. There are also a lot of unexpected deaths you'd never see coming in both. Joker Game focus on single stories about each member of its spy agency, while 91 Days focus on a revenge tale against a mafia family, but both appeal to the same mature audience.
While 91 Days is settled on the USA during the 20's, Joker Game is settled in Japan during the WWII. What makes them similiar? Well, these suited handsome men are really skilled on their own field. Somehow you will find the connection among them. You should take into account that in 91 Days you will see mafia members and how they settle their interests, while in Joker Game, as they are spies, they work unseen and unnoted, on a very stylish way.
The theme for both TV series centers around mafia and revenge.
Nonetheless, while Gangsta contains more jokes and humorous situations, the overall impression for 91 days is rather dark and suspenseful.
Both shows portray a similarly gritty 'gangster' storyline defined by revenge and brutal killings. While Gungrave has more fantastical elements and plays out over a longer time period, if you're a fan of the slow-burning, retro 'mob movie' feel of 91 Days, then you owe it to yourself to check out Gungrave too.
Did you like gungrave's realistic mafia plot in the first 2/3 but was disappointed when it became more scifi?
Then 91 days is perfect for you. It's a gangster drama with revenge on the mix and it's pretty good.
Avilio is very similar to Lelouch, both are very clever manipulative tacticians, both seek for revenge for the death of their loved ones, although the atmosphere of both shows is way different, regarding the main protagonist these anime are kinda similar, if you like Avilio's character then you will totally love Lelouch Vi Britania.
The main character is very similar to Lelouch in the fact he is manipulative, has to go under a fake alias, wants to work out who exactly killed/injured his family, especially his younger sibling, and almost everything he plans goes exactly to plan. Both are geniuses, and the Mafia families are almost as ruthless as the Brittanian royal family. A definite watch.
Aside from these series being stories of revenge against three people that ruined the lives of the respective lead characters, there does not initially appear to be too much linking the two: 91 Days involves 1920's American gangsters, where as Gankutsuou is a multi-layered 'dish best served cold' saga involving French noblemen. But, by the end, the 91 Days scheme for vengeance turns out to be more complex than it first appeared...
So, read the words of Edmond Dantes and understand: "Bide your time and hold out hope." Also, watch Gankutsuou. Now.
Both have great story. Both are filled with betrayal, murders and revenge. If you are looking for an adult plot without any fan service, with reasonable characters and epic ending, dob't hesitate just watch it.
Similar theme with the mafia and opposing teams fighting against one another; with elements of treachery and betrayal as portrayed in 91 days. Although Bungou Stray dogs contains more supernatural themes unlike 91 days, it includes the excessive use of guns and weaponry; murder and secrets. It is hard to find unpredictable characters in an anime and both anime have MCs with this persona. As you watch both anime, the past of the main characters unravels soundlessly.
91 Days involves a sort of conflict between mafia gangs which make the characters much like anti heroes, the same goes with Psycho-Pass. However, Psycho-Pass is based on something a bit different; the bringing down of criminals with the use of criminals. Both of which, could make your heart skip beats and send shivers down your spine when something major happens.
Both are about a main character who tries to get revenge for his family after seeing them get killed when they were kids, the main character of 91 Days tries to get revenge by his own self, but the main character of Kuroshitsuji tries to get revenge with his butler/demon.
91 Days and Tiger and Bunny are both about the main characters getting revenge on the murderer of their parents. There are certain organizations that are both bad and good that they both join to achieve their goal. While Tiger and Bunny has super powers and is set more in the future, both anime have action.
91 Days and Izetta, the Last Witch are both shows that take place in the early 20th century. Each show has rivaling factions. In 91 Days it is the Vanetti family, the Orco family, and the Galassia family, While in Izetta it is Germania and Elystadt. Both shows have characters who were childhood friends, who were reunited in adulthood, Avilio and Corteo in 91 Days and in Izetta it is Princess Finé and Izetta. Both shows have a similar character designs. The CGI is excellent is both series. Both shows belong to the historical genre, even though Izetta has a lot of fantasy elements.
Both have the same dark-ish feel to them and distinct beautiful art.
Both are about clever plots created by exceptionally sharp characters and are quite deeper and complex than one might think at the beginning.
Both are loaded with action, drama and thrills must-see's.
While Monster's plot is much deeper and more developed and complex, 91 days' plot is developed to the best extent 12 episodes allow.
The story of a cold, calculating protagonist's quest for revenge and all the people caught in his way; both are accompanied by a quieter friend who appears on the surface to be the shy voice of reason.
There's also a fair bit of similarity between the internal family-based strife in both shows, though of course, Zetsuen no Tempest happens in a more fantastical setting and has a magic orientated plot. 91 Days is set against a gritty backdrop of Prohibition Era US, and is more liberal when it comes to killing off characters.
Baccano was already recommended so i wanted to recommend another...
Both deals with crime and have the same atmosphere/ feeling (dark, 'eerie', violent)
'Waging war in the dark' and both goes under the seinen genre i guess
Both stories present a relation with something that happened in the past and both protagonists have to solve all the problems that the past left. Furthermore, every chapter, specially in Boku dake ga Inai Machi, leaves you with an intrigue that urges you to see the next chapter.
