Mobile phones get used as tools of survival game warfare, whilst characters act stupid and die/suicide for 'so bad, it's kinda good?' entertainment purposes. This is why I don't have a phone.
Ousama Game has Light Yagami's voice; Mirai Nikki has cute waifu yandere Yuno. Make your choice wisely. Mirai Nikki also has a budget.
Very much filled with adult content just like Mirai Nikki.
The story is about a group of people trying to survive by following their cell phones command or else they will die, and Mirai Nikki has the same idea except their cellphones have abilities that would help them survive in this survival game. The characters all have their own twists and turns.
its the race against time.... while the deathly game continues, The Scaredy Protagonist along with Big muscled easily embrassed guy and cowardly twin tailed girl trying to solve the mystery of the game, Its Like Deja vu you know??
Another.... , Mei and Kouichi, with no extra guy BUT an old guy... A TRIO!!!, trying to solve whos the extra one.... Maybe Ousama game has also the EXTRA ONE, trying to find out WHO THE REAL KING IS!!! or maybe its not included... One by one... piece by piece.... for the next 24 hours there will be the next VICTIM....
Both have the same thriller, Horror, School, mystery, where one individual is a jinx who bring the curse to his classmates, and one after the other kicks the bucket in very strange circumstances...........
Lots of people are going to die in these shows. In another, it's kind of like final destination, with most people dying natural deaths (lightning, burning, crushed etc.). In Ousama Game, people are given tasks on their phone, and if they don't do the task within 24 hours starting at midnight, the person dies.
Both shows involve a new transfer student who is brought into a class that is now/was always undergoing a death based situation. Ousama game is more death game based, whereas Another is more death mystery based
Bonus connection in that in both shows, characters die left and right in the most ridiculous ways
One's a phoney, and Another's a phony. If you were exposed to King's Game first, then it's clear that it was handled more poorly. Both are close to death, the thing we all seem to inevitably reach. Have an empty can ready. There is strength in numbers, but the numbers can be depleted quicker than I can text this statement.
They look the same "anime style", the 2 have Horror and Mystery etc. And the 2 animes arevery similiar, in "Another" we have one person that are the cursed, and in "Ousama Game" we have "The King", no one knows who is this 2 characters, the 2 animes have deaths and are so equally. If u like one watch the other.
Mayoiga is marketed as a horror however it can be watched as a comedy, similar to Ousama Game.
The atmosphere is dark and edgy in both shows, however, Mayoiga is less serious.
Both shows are in the mystery genre and neither show tries to explain the supernatural events in a comprehensive way.
While I would consider myself a fan of the survival game, psychological, horror and mystery genres respectively, I would categorise each of these titles near to the bottom of the barrel.
Both include a weak and forgettable ensemble cast - primarily due to their 'large cast' syndromes - completely devoid of any character development, realistic reactions to plot-driven events and originality in both design and personality. Each series takes itself unduly seriously, with both suffering from poor plot execution and contrived character interactions, subsequently making prevalent and rehashed plot devices feel abrupt and unnatural.
On a more light-hearted note, both posses decent OPs and EDs and can provide for an entertaining watch, as long as you do not go into either series with unrealistically high expectations. read more
Both series have people forced into a game with rules based off of a similar game that people are familiar with. These series both show a lot of gore and death, but Ousama Game is more graphic with the deaths while Btooom! is more graphic with the violence itself. They both also have a kill to survive aspect.
"To live or to die?" Charging straight at you, Ousama Game and Mahou Shoujo Site try their best to grab your attention by utilizing bizarre and outright mind-numbing tactics. For better or for worse, they'll be an experience you won't forget for a while.
They're both missing the comedy tag, although the characters in Ousama game aren't as one-dimensional and unbelievably unrealistic as the ones in Mahou Shoujo Site. If you like darker themes, magical girls, or unintentional comedy, I recommend this anime. I think it's entertaining in similar ways, the mystery they're trying to figure out, and the characters they meet along the way.
Sequels of their respective titles. MC are survivors of their previous killing games. Once again are forced to participate in another killing game with restrictions imposed upon it's participants and are punished if failed to act upon predetermined conditions.
- a group of people must fulfill a task or they'll get killed
- main character survived the previous survival game and everyone in the new survival game suspects him to be the main antagonist and organizer of the game
I feel like every season has an an anime where there's a "game" and only one person can win everyone else dies- If you like watching death left and right and never getting attached to a character but love to watch the world burn this is for you lol.
- both use the - only one person can "Survive"
- both continue/repeat the death game/cycle over and over again
- both show the evil sadistic side of characters that seem innocent on the outside.
Well, similar to Ousama game, you have a lot of characters dying and fighting to live. Shiki takes place in a remote village - similar to yonsaki village and surprisingly has a quite a lot of romance to do with the main characters like ousama game. The MC in Shiki starts out as a very cold guy and unwilling to make friends (see that connection with Nobuaki in the first episode?)
