Both shows involve cute girls with some sort of magic power being experimented on by scientists in a lab, in addition to slice of life moments with other characters in a house. The two plots collide in interesting ways, though while Elfen Lied takes on a very dark tone, Alice to Zouroku embraces the happiness of its characters and their powers
Its main characters are both a fugitive and is a dangerous creature .. she always sought by the investigators to be used as an experiment .. and eventually met a guy who is none other than the main characters as well ..
They both have fantasy (Alice in wonderland inspired) world's in which the main character 'controls'. Both have an animation style (although different) that is respectful of said fantasy world. Whilst Alice to Zouroku is slightly more SoL oriented than Flip Flappers (which I think is more adventure oriented), If you like one you will definitely enjoy the other.
it seems like it will be some sort of Rozen Maiden all over again, in this case "dreams of alice" both contain mystical girls with supernatural powers, and the MC that gets involved on it no matter what... pretty similar to this point.
it yet has to develop, but so far if you liked Rozen Maiden, i'm sure that you will enjoy this
Pretty much the same older man to loli relationship, except one was more of slice of life, while the other is more on sci-fi considering that the loli there is a science lab experiment who got away, while in the other one, the lolis there where more like interview subjects.
Sana is the red queen and Anna is the red princess. Both are little girls with magical powers who have been forced to endure painful testing. Both have also found friendship with a grumpy man. While the two stories are quite different, Sana and Anna have a large number of similarities.
basically Alice to Zouroku in reverse. a girl with an exceptional talent compared to all the other talents goes into a special compound designed to protect normal society from these special people to save her friend and ends up learning about life and how confusing it can be and that not everyone is a good person deep down.......
i'm gonna be one of those people and say the manga was better, for really no other reason than more in-depth back story and continuation of the story; although the ending really sucked......
Both have cutesy main characters. I was instantly reminded of Tsumugi when I started Alice. The dramatic elements are way stronger in Alice but both have very tender moments. Sweetness and Lightning has a lighter mood and is strictly more "slice of life" about food and Tsumugi being raised by her single dad. Sana in Alice is somewhat raised by old man Zouroku so they are similar in that regard as well.
Both are very sweet overall and get high ratings from me!
