Set in the same sort or place at the same sort of time, with a similar art style and similarly large cast. Two very fast paced trigger-happy shows with winding storylines full of intrigue.
Baccano is more light hearted and has more of a fantasy element whereas 91 Days is grittier and more rooted in reality.
It's an obvious reccomendarion, isn't it?
Probably you're right, but i want to say:
"If you enjoyed Baccano!, but you didn't appreciate the supernatural aspect of it, then you'll love 91Days: same settings, great storylines, characters with deep personality and random italian names. You can't think about something better!"
But remember that there is less action in 91Days, in particular the fights are more realistic and less spectacular.
What? You don't mind and you want to watch a great anime?? Then go for 91Days!
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.
Baccano! and 91 days are similar in many ways, if we take the general ambiance and the universe of both of them, with the prohibition, the gun figth etc. We are in the same thing.
The major differences are the story way much darker in 91 days and there is no supernatural thing in 91 days
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 are stories concerning gangs or families. Though Gangsta has a bit of comedy in each episode, 91 days focuses more on the serious side and the revenge of Angelo Lagusa. Cheers to the unpredictable moves of our protagonist, really amazing!
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.
Out of all the mafioso inspired anime entries out there, these two come the closest to capturing the very essence of the subgenre. The usual themes revolving around family, loyalty, revenge, and corruption are very present.
These titles also see inner-turmoil within the mafia families that they follow and has a frenemy relationship to some capacity between the main figures involved.
With muted tones and earthy color-palettes, realistic character designs, and an invested attempt in taking cinematic cues from films that inspire it; these entries are something like gift-wrapped viewing bargains.
The only tradeoff involved being just how much fantastical flourishings that you may be looking for. If you want the bread and butter of the mafia subgenre, go with 91 Days. However, if you want something that adheres to the subgenre with a bit of a left-hook coming in the form of supernatural elements, then go with Gungrave. Either way, they're both satisfying in their own right. read more
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.
Both anime's share two strong similarities
Both share the premise about a nobody/underdog getting involved with the Mafia and climbing throughout their ranks.
Both share about a theme of getting revenge
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.
If you want noir action in anime or just an anime with a great atmosphere I can recommend you many anime, two of those being "91 Days" and "Princess Principal".
While 91 Days puts more focus on the mafia, Princess Principal puts it on spy action in victorian London.
2 episodes in to princess principal and I already love it. The mood and color pallete remind me a lot of 91 days. While I do admit, 91 days has a more serious tone, princess principal doesn't sugarcoat it either. Princess principal has episodes interesting from start to finish and 91 days makes you want the next episode right away. 91 days had a heartbreaking twist and ending (well, at least, i didnt expect the twist) and I can't say anything about princess principal's ending yet, but it's already shocked me. Princess principal has badass cute girls so that takes away from the mood a little bit but somehow its just as mesmerising in it's own way. Both shows will keep you interested in what will happen with the respective wars and the characters. If you like either show you should definitely check the other out.
also both are frustrating in the sense that they're original tv series, so while they're airing and you can't wait for the next episode, you can't read ahead lol read more
The Yorknew City arc in HxH is very similar to 91 Days. Both Kurapika and Avilio seek revenge on a group of people who murdered someone close to them. They both get involved with the mafia to get closer to the ones they plan to kill. Tons of plot twists, unexpected character deaths, and action. If you loved the Yorknew City arc, 91 Days may be something for you to check out.
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.
Revenge? Yeah, people who're fans of anime with this in it, will probably like 91 Days. Also, they may take place during different time periods, but both series give off this "deadly 1920's-1940's" feel with the mafia-ish relationships (from 91 Days) and the hitmen (from Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens).
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.
Both of the anime shows are in old second war style ( you will get it if you watch one of em lol ).
Both of the main characters try to kill overpowered character to get their revenge
because he/she made them poor af.
Over exciting, action a-a-and killing with cold blood... you know.
Tanya and Angelo use strategies to take care of people or get promotion in their
Finally they got innocent kind of stupid supporting characters.
A Lot of points but i used the most important, realized ones.
However, If you like.
-Strategies while wasting souls.
-Revenge and anger mode.
Then you Need to watch Youjo Senki and 91 Days if you didn't watch it already.
Through Darkest of your own days maybe brutal since the era sets up in a urban state of history
Every characters are portrayed doing crime things that purge syndicate who'd being doing malicious cases and savaging murderous intents
Highly inducing Mature vibes that is so deadly and very crucial as it direct towards to the society of an outsider who got involve into a random messy rotten lives in the prison/ganging up as a mafia
Conspiracies, mafia, unexpected turns, suspense. Good development of the characters. Very good atmosphere, unique world. Protagonist very carisstático, history well developed.
I design fantastic weapons inspired by video games and anime at http://www.weaponsmithonline.com/
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 take place around similar time periods, 1920s-1930s and have to an extent a similar feell.
However, Night Raid takes place in China and features spies with special abilities, whereas 91 days takes place in seemingly the USA and features the Mafia, so far without supernatural events.
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.
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 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.
