Both are thrillers/mysteries featuring MCs who can manipulate time.

same studio i only recommend it's OP, which is similar with kokkoku but with tons of recycled animation here and there.

Monsters and people with supernatural abilities both feature heavily in these series.

A must-see for all time-traveling enthusiasts. Steins;Gate explores the multitude of possibilities in the course of time as it unforlds (from a point in the past onwards) while Kokkoku is about entering a co-called stasis, a frozen frame, a single moment in time where some have the "power" to interact while the rest of the world around them is like an unmovable picture. S;G starts off really slowly but at some point BAM! it hits you strong and accelerates. Kokkoku is going fast (oh the irony!) from sec one. There's lots of violence in both cases, if you have a weak stomach better avoid them  read more

Both are sfish dramas with hyper tension and fast storyboard

From the more realism-lenient art style and chaotic opening, to the many questions posed by their concepts, both series (at least so far for Kokkoku) carry a very similar atmosphere.

- Very large and diverse cast - Winding story - Funky music - Superpowers and mystery - Lots of death and blood - Tense atmosphere The art in Occultic;Boob is nicer but the artists behind Kokkoku has a better understanding of female anatomy. Both shows also share similar short-comings but if you were able to enjoy one, give the other a try.

Where one of the main characters is an elderly man with superpowers. Also similar atmosphere, gory themes with lots of violence and action. Not many shows around with elderly people (60+ or at least looking 60+) as protagonists but that doesn't necessarily the ones that are around are any good...

The cast is a dysfunctional group/family. They are confronted with unconventional supernatural phenomenons. This leads to a mystery/psychological. The art style is similar, too.

I kinda think urasekai Picnic is quite similar to kokkoku it kinda gives of the same vibe about how in both anime the main characters enter a different world/side of the world to save someone/look for someone I really loved kokkoku it was a great anime and I'm loving urasekai Picnic too so if u like either of the to animes you'll pretty sure like the other

Similarities: Kokkuku - 1. Stops time for everyone except a select few. 2.two groups of people (one family the other you could say is type of a gang in a way, more a religious group, but they still use gang-like violence to get what they want.) 3.Stops time to save people. Tokyo Revengers - 1.Travels back and forth in time. 2. Gangs and violence 3. Uses the time-traveling to save people. They differ in many ways, but I think both have some subtle comedy in them that make them enjoyable to watch. Tokyo Revengers does have more action than Kokkoku, but in either show you get to see some fighting and blood  read more

Ok, not a perfect recommendation, but listen up. The first two episodes of Gintama's fourth season use a similar premise to Kokkoku. In both, the main characters find themselves in a world frozen in time where they are able to roam freely while everyone else is motionless.

Both have a similar vibe and atmosphere. Great soundtracks, different perspectives from different characters, and the past is unravelled for each show as they go on. 
report Recommended by ButadonMeitantei
Being in the world of parasytes and being in the world statis draws similar feelings of isolation and dread. Art: The dark grungy atmosphere and presentation of the animation are almost the same. Sound: Both have amazing opening themes that are inspired of metal rock and electronic disco.

- Small town mystery feel - Jazzy music that doesn't quite fit but the contrast in turn makes it good - Superpowers with a history (backed by powerful pseudoscience) - Mysterious cult The cast of Ghost Hound is on average younger than Kokkoku but the chars in Kokkoku aren't exactly very well written adults so there's v little practical difference.
