-Joining a Agency / Club
- Agency / Club gets interrested in the main character
- The one joining the agency/club has a strong "special power"
- But agency fight the crime or an enemy
- But main character have white hair
A group of teenagers with special powers are in a group, helping people from the city by taking on jobs that such as investigations, bodyguards etc. The main character from both anime have a problem with their self-identity and how their powers are used (they both fear themselves and the prospect of their powers hurting others), and are led by a more experienced and "wiser" mentor. Both shows have a similar atmosphere and pacing as well, being very arc-based. If you enjoy one, it is likely you'll enjoy the other!
-Both involve an agency solving mysteries/problems
-Atsushi from Bungou and Yoshio from Trickster, both main characters, have supernatural powers and similar physical traits
-Osamu from Bungou and Kensuke, also main characters, have a very similar carefree attitude thus making the humor of both shows similar. They also share some physical traits.
-One of the main characters of both series wish to die (won't say who xD)
The same plot where it involves an outcast by society who found a meaning to his life by fighting evil, and both have the same action that focuses on the very people who deals with evil, however , the main character's role were different in some ways.
Similiar setting of Quirks/Powers in humans and is a police/detective style drama as well.
Bungou Stray Dogs has 2 seasons also episodic in nature. Character development and back story is much more satisfying in Bungou Stray Dogs. Bungeon's aesthetic is more developed and noir.
Fight scenes are well-done and mystery elements more nuanced in Bungou Stray Dogs.
Nice and Hanasaki are similar in how they have seemingly OP powers and how they are fun loving characters. They both seem happy go lucky and both work with a team, however, at times they are both serious when it pertains to certain subjects that they care about. The storylines for both of them are similar in how they caught my interest. The characters seem to be searching for a "killer" or "terrorist", an antagonist that seems to be dragging the story somewhere. That's all I can say for now.
The two MCs in Trickster have a very strong resemblance to Yato and Yukine in Noragami. So if you enjoy that relationship dynamic, you'll enjoy watching these two together.
The plots are relatively similar as well: the MC carrying out a series of tasks, and the other begrudgingly tagging along for different reasons.
So far both shows seem pretty similar in some aspects, but are very different in others. Trickster is a story based on problems that will happen on a normal person life and there is Boys' Detective Team which will help you with that problem as long as you pay them. This is a similarity between both shows because Yato from Noragami will also fix your problem if you pay him five yen which is much cheaper than Trickster.
However, unlike Trickster, Noragami story is based on Gods and supernatural events related to demons. In Trickster the characters just face the what you can call normal problems.
But in both animes there are two characters that get along really well (even though it doesn't look like it sometimes). Trickster's Kobayashi and Hanasaki and Noragami's Yato and Yukine. Kobayashi and Yukine are also pretty similar to each other and the same happens with Yato and Hanasaki. Plus this double as a female friend that advises them a few times, Noragami's Hiyori and Trickster's Noro.
In conclusion, we can find similarities in both shows in this little things but in general the stories behind the shows, so far (I'm currently watching Trickster as it airs), aren't very similar. This, however, doesn't mean that they are really good animes and are worth your time.  read more
Both are detective shows based on Edogawa Rampo's literary works. In both shows, the detective Kobayashi gets recruited to do detective work as his way of living. The biggest difference is that Trickster is more action-oriented while Rampo Kitan is more mystery-oriented.
Lots of similar elements in the story & characterization like solitude, revenge, friendship, pain, secrets of the past, mind control & betrayal. The painful childhood of the MCs made them live in solitude. The secrets of the past which connects and explains the role of their "guardian" & the antagonist. The MC requesting the assistance of the other MC to die and have their existence erased from the world. In the process, they develop genuine bond & friendship despite the other one rejecting the fact. MC temporarily siding with the other faction. Antagonists using people as tools to achieve their goals plus the element of mind control/false ideology. read more
Both deal with suicidal thought and help you to look for bigger picture in the world .Teach us that every life hold value
- MC that was given life but refuse to continue while Trickster MC never experience death but he tried to self-harm countless time
- Both MC keep living on for the reason of their friend/family .They experience loneliness at first but find that "one person" that help to move forward
- Both don't remember about their past at first but we get a hint that it was somehow painful one
Both Trickster and Psycho-Pass are anime worth seeing for anyone who enjoys questions of morality or likes crime dramas or anime set in a realistic society of the future. In many ways they are very similar, but there are some significant differences too, enough to pleasantly enjoy watching both without feeling like one is a rehash of the other.
Similarities between Psycho-Pass and Trickster:
* Both anime feature the basic "good guys versus bad guys" premise.
* Both anime blur the lines of morality by calling into question whether the good guys are truly good and the bad guys truly bad.
* The "bad guys" in both anime employ terrorism and charismatic brainwashing of everyday citizens to strike against the "good guys" while taking very little action themselves.
* Both are set in a near-future society where the lives of average citizens are heavily influenced by the technology they use.
* The "bad guys" in both anime are seriously sexy. Some of the good guys are too!
* Both anime feature predominantly (but not exclusively) male casts.
* Romance is not a major aspect in either anime, but specific relationships in each lend themselves to ambiguous possibilities.
On the other hand:
* The society portrayed in Psycho-Pass is more dystopian and dark, while the world of Trickster is mostly a bright, optimistic view of the future.
* Police and para-police forces take on the role of the "good guys" in Psycho-Pass, while in Trickster, the focus is on a private detective agency's employees.
* The cast of Pyscho-Pass is primarily 20- through 35-year-olds, while the cast of Trickster is mostly teens. read more
