Both feature genius main characters who have a terrorist/rebellious hero alter ego. Both of these alter egos Playmaker and Zero are super popular and charismatic. Both seek revenge for their traumatic past.

Vrains' 2nd season is identical to Zeta Gundam as a new tyrannical force takes reign allowing allies and former enemies to team up to tear down what will take over the current society that culminated events from previous series. Yusaku and Kamille have a lot in common as the story progresses and Revolver this time takes cues from Quattro Bajeena wearing shades to continue his father's legacy.

Wave Change and Into the Vrains have an identical concept where the character undergoes a transformation with the abilities of their partners to absorb anything in front of them. Later they ally with the female whose tragic past involved a family incident and are pop idols beloved by the masses.

Yugioh Vrains can be said to be the deconstruction of the internet/cyberpunk genre to the point that it is dark and edgy unlike any other series made. Yusaku is the complete opposite of Netto as an anti hero vigilante seeking out vengeance and hate against his enemies whereas Netto serves the Net Society to save the day. AI like Megaman serves as a partner in hand and guides the mc throughout the series only to end up turning against him at some point. Though I can't help but compare some of the aspects: Den City Check Into the Vrains to Cross Fusion and Jack In Check Rival with red scheme colors  read more

Both more recent iterations of super popular kids anime franchises (beyblade & yugioh). Both have very similar appeal & art styles. Both with impeccable character designs, a standard set for their larger franchises as a whole.

Vrains and Sins are the bleakest series in the entry so far. The themes will hit you to the point of depression, realism, and edginess due to how dark they are. Yusaku and Casshern starts of emotionless and ruthless searching for the meaning of their life during their journey and at one point meet companions and enemies as the story rolls along impacting their development. Though Vrains is shonen, it is far more seinen than 5ds due to the tragic backstories and deaths that the cast has. Sins on the other hand is the departure from Casshern only to target adults making it the quality show that nowadays has  read more

VRAINS and P5 deal with incidents that involve innocents and the MCs in both of their shows must exploit and bring them to justice but at the same time suffer their troubled past. 
report Recommended by WingZeroRequiem
Both series take in a setting where society has centered around the usage of virtual and/or augmented reality. They both involve playing in a game where there's actually the risk of losing your life. This particular season of SAO is a lot closer to VRAINS's situation in regards to life-threatening situations and AI sentimentality. In both shows, the AIs are developed to actually develop true intelligence, but their own self-awareness has surpassed expectations, resulting in huge complications that turn out as the main conflict.

I know it might seem odd to recommend these two, but hear me out: -Both are low poing starting but get better over ( Arc-V Synchro Dimension and Vrains episode 47 onwards) -Both are MUCH improved over their predecessors (Zexal and GX respectively) -Both are much darker than previous entrees -Both share are 2.0 of thier predecessors ( GX and 5D's) -Both feature a return to older plot mechanic (Arc V takes a lot of cues from 5Ds, and Vrains takes cues from Dm to Arc-V) -Both share an old extra deck mechanic and return old ones (Arc-V did bring back 4 eras, and Vrains brough back  read more

IBO and Arc V may have something in common regarding mythology gags and improvements over their predecessors but Vrains has more in common with IBO S2 as being the most depressing series up to date. Terrorism, child soldiers, revolution, and tragedy is the theme in both shows not to mention featuring protagonists who have endured harsh life since childhood showing no emotion fights a war for their selfish reasons and wanting to have a place to return to. Antagonists switch from time to time while one is a Char Clone who is a villain at first but allies later in order to reform the corrupt society. Later the  read more

Both take place in a modern society with characters involving in a virtual gaming system which is the focal point of the show. Both the MCs are well known and are powerful users that dominate the screen. The female lead are similar but somewhat. The characters in Yugioh VRAINS are cold and detached as opposed to SAO being all about friendship.

Both take place in a cyberpunk setting where a certain technology with a conspiracy dominates the entire society revolves around crime, vigilantism, and terrorism. Revolver and Makishima's goal are identical since they want to preserve humanity by destroying the technological aspect that is corroding their life while Makishima's seiyuu shares a lot in common with AI as they too later lead their own rebellion against the mc. Yusaku and Kogami are stoic individuals with a tragic past with the resolve to hunt those responsible for their tragedy as anti heroes. Yusaku's friendship with Aoi and Takeru resembles that of Akane and Ginoza per comparison.
