Both held in confinement and are abused.

Deadman Wonderland is also similar to this anime, and begins with the MC confined at a facility where they are pushed to their limits everyday for survival. Both the MCs start off as underdogs, but Deadman Wonderland has more intriguing plot points and twists, which makes it all the more interesting to watch.

Young people put in survival situation, struggling under abuse in closed environment, where they are at mercy of their guardians. Detained people sinned in both series. Make no mistake, Rainbow is masterpiece - heavy drama light years above Evil. So far Evil has much lighter mood, almost comedic elements, lower quality and I don`t like the motifs behind characters, but blood and abuse are present in both series.

Based in one area But very enjoyable to watch if you like the story of inmates/captivated Humans

it might take a while longer but a normal kid who looks like a loser becomes badass in his own unique way. they are not exactly the same though because durarara focuses on many other characters too which have their own unique and very very interesting stories while evil or live focuses on 1 protagonist.

Friendship is tested as well as the secret/hidden society element. In both anime, there is a start of despair that the characters harden up to make it through.

Both involves characters whom were considered useless members of society that were condemned to suffer in hellish environment, where survival is the name of the game.  
report Recommended by Whoahoho
Both of them start with a lame protagonist who finds himself in a tough and "unfair" world. Kaiji also has a prison arc which makes them even more similar. If you liked this show, you will definitely love Kaiji!

A young man is thrown into an unbelievable circumstance. He starts off as a spineless coward, but he goes through a drastic change due to their extreme situations.

Evil or live itself isnt structured as a survival game literally like D-game...but i canpromise it has survival, game, strategy, and a friendship formed for survival. Evil or Live doesn't have the sort of romannce vibe.
