Both Chaos Head and Higurashi focus on a young man's life being flipped upside when he discovers a murder. Takumi's paranoia reflects Keiichi's own during Onikakushi-hen. Both boys are also surrounded by girls who they have trouble trusting after their life-changing discoveries. The chains of deaths around them lead them to shrink from the people they were, seeing the murderous sides of the girls before them and then their sweeter sides in school. Both have the same genres and atmosphere around them.
Both of these anime series Show Unexplained Mysteries and the ones involves are students who also goes into the same School aslo these anime series are both classfied as horror,Mystey,supense Thriler,for Those anime Fans Who like watching anime Series That will make them think as they watch each episode,will surely like anime Chaos Head because the anime chaos Head can offer the exciment Mystery and Horror they would like to see
Both anime are about creepy girls killing people where the protagonist is paranoid and thinks they are trying to kill him. Similar feel except ChäoS;HEAd is set in a large city while Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is set in a rural village.
If you liked one of these two then you'll definitely like the other one. Both are psychotic thrillers that will keep you hanging till the very end. Higurashi may be a bit more confusing but its still quite good. You'll enjoy both of them if you're a fan of horror, suspense, blood & gore. Plus a bit of supernatural in higurashi, but Chaos head has a bit more supernaturality
Its kinda sad the Way Higurashi plays with my emotion the way it did and how chaos head try to eperiment with this but absolutely failed. Chaos head is an unenjoyable watch as things start to happen for no reason but is very similar to higurashi if you want a lot of WTF moments.
Both psychological thrillers, they are similar in that they deal with unique unknown forces in the beginning with very confused/scared protagonist, and shed light on them later. Just as a good psychological thriller should do =P
The main protagonists from both series have difficulties trusting others, even when they seem to have good intentions. The first wrong act and they'll feel even more betrayed until they become hikikomori. And like most of the hikikomoris, they're addicted (or become addicted) to the 2D world, as an issue.
The main character in Welcome to the N.H.K is also a hikikomori. While Takumi (in Chaos;HEad) is convinced every thing is a delusion, Satou is convinced everything is a conspiracy. Both are very good psychological anime that will hopefully twist your mind pleasantly.
The male protagonists in both anime are "hikikomoris" (recluses) that start out with similar troubles differentiating their self-delusions in their heads with the reality surrounding outside them. Both meet and make new friends throughout their respective stories. The male protagonists in both anime gradually move on from their reclusive tendencies, and near the end, despite lingering fears and doubts, are somehow able to both muster up the courage to save the day.
The male protagonists of these shows believe that there is someone or something out to get them and they meet girls who offer their help. The stories are different however, as Chaos;Head is sci-fi while Welcome to the NHK! leans more towards drama.
The protagonists in both shows exhibit hikikomori (shut-in) and otaku life styles. In addition, they suffer from severe paranoia and delusions. Would the entrance of a single mysterious and beautiful girl change each male lead's life?
Even though there are some differences between these two anime -ChaoS is more mystery and NHK is more comedy- both have also a few similarities. In both anime, the protagonist is a male hikikomori and both are of the psychological genre. Both Satou and Takumi have delusions and don't know how to cope with them. How they deal with their situations is interesting to see and I think both are nicely made shows.
Both are thrillers about a guy who shuts himself up in his room and has hallucinations.In both the main charcther is slowly getting used to the real world with the help or women for the most part and both main charcthers have these hallucinations for the whole series and both shows can be creepy at times but for the majority they are both very enjoyable. Welcome to the NHK is more of a spice of life drama where as Chaos;head seems the same at first with a little horror quickly turns into a supernatural action.
The protagonist is always screaming and crying in the face of danger. In both the series, the protagonist just wants to be left alone. They also share the common theme of murder and mystery. Also, the protagonist eventually learn to except their roles in the story and the final battle takes place towards the end (as in any other typical story!).
Nevertheless, they are both very good anime, very closely related if you watch the entire series (or even just the first episode or two), and well worth watching!
-Both are set in modern times
-Main character is introverted and paranoid
-Pink-haired girl leads main character through a mystery, while hiding her own secrets
-Main character develops a relationship with the pink-haired girl
-Supporting characters with similar supernatural powers appear
-Mirai Nikki is much more suspenseful and nerve-wrecking
-Chaos head eventually loses its horror/psychological feel
Both have this "blow your mind"-setting that keeps you constantly wondering about what actually goes on. At both series you have to think hard pretty to follow the storyline but keeps very much space for surprises. The gory scenes are pretty equal too. Both heros are very similar in character. Rimi (ChäosHead) is pretty much a second Yuno (at least by appearence). At first it felt like a weird sequel to Mirai Nikki but then the story kicked in ;)
both girls are a little bit insane, and the main characters are both terrified of the girl, but still follows them around
they both have about the same horrorish felling about them, but not as extreme as Mirai Nikki
the characters are quite alike, the main character being a boy they don't think they are worthy and are quite outcast from the rest of the world and suddenly a girl also being a main character bring them back to humanity essentially an we constantly question can we trust the people surrounding the characters and often question them themselves
Both have chaotic plots that become nonsensical over time, pink haired female protagonists, and a strange preoccupation with god. They also both have plot holes and huge casts that are utilized poorly. I would argue Mirai Nikki is worse on both these accounts, though that is not the general consensus.
Both have similar theme (delusion) although on a very different level
So, if you like harem, ecchi, and girls fighting with big swords ChäoS;HEAd is good
and if you really looking for other psychological anime with far better execution, no ecchi, and no harem
better try SE Lain
One of the best anime in a genres "Sci-Fi" and "Psychological". From here and similarities of protagonists (which consist that they avoid the real world and consequently live in virtual, they have a constant desire to find in a network and as to understand in internal "I"). In both anime it is a lot of riddles and the strange events occuring around of the main characters, (it strange messages come, them confuse in the street, they learn about those things, " which, in their opinion, they did not make ", etc.) and in attempts to understand they all plunges into a chasm of eternal questions on a reality and its perception, memory and consciousness, the God and mankind as a whole more deeply.
They're the same for all that matters.. Chaos Head is more stylish and modern with wacky characters instead of grim and inexpressive and serious.. If you liked either you'll like the other too! Although some things may feel as if they're just ripped off Lain and combined it with more generic elements.
11eyes is basically the 2009 version of 2008's Chaos;head.
Each anime was based off a game. Both center around a male character who is surrounded by multiple girls who show up either near the beginning or middle of the series that have something to do with the general plot. Most of these girls can seem extremely innocent, but they're really someone totally different
Both males (Kakeru 11eyes, Takumi Chaos;head) already have a girl who is extremely close to them (Yuka who is Kakeru's childhood friend, and Nanami who is Takumi's younger sister). The male's each meet a girl who somehow knows something about the strange things that are going around in their world. (Rimi for Chaos;head, and Kusakabe for 11eyes). Each girl is able to use some strange sword. (Although for Rimi it is revealed much later on)
The elements for each anime is rather dark, and the main characters are sucked into some strange parallel world from time to time, where they are shown strange things or are forced to fight to defend themselves. read more
The world of one young man ends up being turned upside down and the reality he believes to be true may not necessarily be true. Because his reality is being turned up side down he finds himself in a fight to save the future of man kind, only to find the relationship he's in dismantling in some fashion as he watches, either through tragedy or the actual fact the end of the world can bring out the worst in people.
This anime also has one main male character and several females ones. Similar to 11eyes, everyone has a special power but in Chaos;head,they each have their own swords and powers. Also, Chaos;Head dwells into an alternate world like 11eyes.
11eyes and Chaos;Head are both supernatural anime that share some very similar themes that make them go together very well and they offer a good amount of psychological tricks on the viewer. Both series involve magical swords that only a select few can use and main characters that are quite different but are surrounded by a harem of women. They both have a side of romance, some hectic battle scenes and plot twists but Chaos;Head is not as fanservice stocked as its very ecchi counterpart 11 Eyes. If you liked watching one of them you shouldn't hesitate to try out the other.
Male lead in a harem like situation. Well, there's a similarity there already. But beyond that, they also share the similarity of:
Both contain psychological twists
Murders that are conviniently placed right where the lead male can see them, a strange girl following him without making sense on why... if you like one then I'm sure you'll like the other. Denpateki is Chaos Head without the fantasy.
The unsuspecting element, the odd gloomy atmosphere, and the mystery the urks around the theme of the anime. Though without the supernatural element present in ChaoS;Head, it still presents it's own unique element to make up for that difference. Overall it's a great anime despite only being an OVA with two episodes.
Both animes are hard to follow,in which Steins;Gate exceeds with its amazing story.Although Chaos;Head "talks" about murders the design of its story is really similar to Stein;Gate but the way how its presented(in my opinion) is kinda stupid.
When talking about MCs,they are delusioned in their believes but also really inteligent when it comes to solving the mysteries.
While Steins;Gate is definitely the superior anime here, Chaos Head gives the watcher that feeling of confusion and messes with his or her head pretty seriously. One of Steins;Gate's strengths was keeping the watcher out of the loop while its crazy time/space changing events took place, Chaos Head also hits the nail on the head here. A lot like Steins;Gate, Chaos Head can be rather difficult to watch at times with its weaving through dimensions and time. If you are slower with subs, or have not watched a lot of subbed anime I would HIGHLY recommend watching the dub of this anime. The voice actors are fairly decent and unlike some anime, this dub is definitely watchable and does not take away from the anime as a whole. In short, if you are looking for an anime that can bend your mind like Steins;Gate did, give Chaos Head a shot. (Excuse the art which can be rough at times). read more
These two anime's share a similar resemblance not in plot or story, but in the way occurrences happen mainly on a cellphone or on a computer. And how the main characters needs to solve each piece to the "puzzle" if you will, as they go along and must rely solely on him self. Both main characters feel utterly alone at certain part of the show. There are some more similarities, that are to minor to mention.
What is time? What is the universe? Because all this happens to me? The mere fact of a curiosity, leads our protagonists to a world that seems impossible to believe. Where there are lines of time, space that should not be crossed, that will put at risk their closest beings. He will have to fight his weaknesses, with this constant mental game that makes him look like a madman, desperate to find answers to his intriguers. These series start in a similar way, the death of a person, which turns out to be a vision ?, or can be true ?, it all depends where you are. There is also an organization that is interested in our protagonists, since they are always present in the strange happenings that happen in the city. read more
The storylines are completely different but the 2 animes deal with some strange phenomena. Boogiepop Phantom is a really dark anime, the episodes don't seem to be linked but in fact they tell the same story from different points of view. The graphics of Chaos;Head may not seem quite serious but it doesn't matter because the plot is unusual and the story is interesting and breathtaking.
Two very good animes!
Aside from the fact that Boogiepop Phantom is much more a cult-series than Chaos;Head, and the latter is definitely easier to digest, Chaos;Head and Boogiepop share their feeling of creepiness and thriller-like mystery surrounding a certain "untouchable person". If anything, Chaos;Head is like Boogiepop, but made accessible for a larger audience. Fans of either that are looking for something similar, but different on the heaviness, give this one a try.
There exists a personification of your innermost feelings and thought processes. In Chaos Head it exists as a "delusion", something brought into reality, while in Persona 4 it exists as a "persona". If you aren't careful, you can be killed.
Both have another world-kind of feeling and they have plot and characters that resemble each other. I think they are really related why? Because they both origin from japanese role-playing video game.
Similar plot, starts with murder, then the murdering is stopped and the main characters have to find out more like why or how. There is like a fantasy world and the real world and they are mixed together in a really great and original way, I really love both anime
In both these series, the true potential of the protagonist are kept a secret. They eventually come to realize how strong and powerful they are.
Also, there are random series of murder which start making sense towards the end.
Both anime contain viable amounts of mystery and action and are worth watching!
Both series features strange phenomenon that happens over a city that is shrouded by mystery.
Both series contains elements of both supernatural and science fiction themes featuring some action later on as well.
Both series' main protagonist has "delusions" that are occur in various episodes.
Both series also include plots featuring a murder that has many questions that needs answers.
Both series contain a strange atmosphere and a feeling.
In both anime, the main protagonist has delusions or rather feels as though reality is playing around with them. They meet a strange girl in both series that seems to be connected to his delusions and reality switches.
Chaos;Head is constructed in a more psychological way while Interlude takes a more philosophical approach. Still, the feeling of mystery is there as the main protagonist in both series struggles to deal with his reality.
Occultic; Nine and Chaos; Head. These works of the same creator are locked in possibilities that are out of human understanding, trying to explain what does not seem to make sense. Both involve a young man who could be considered somewhat clear of society, although he has friends, he keeps for himself all the suffering of his mere existence. These protagonists are witnesses of death, are involved by chance, where each person related to him has somehow related to the events. The series usually use elements like the internet, police, even characters with certain similarities. Both seek the truth behind the dark world that presents itself before them, that chain of supernatural events that are accumulating. read more
The complex plot in both of these animes written by the same guy so they do have similarities in. Both are where stuff like Serial Experiments Lain have ended up today not quite the older cyberpunk genre and this what it has become today.
A loner main character with no ego or spine whatsoever and a cast of females are psychologically manipulated into fighting for the sake of the ego-maniacal head of a shadowy corporation seeking to play god. Mental molestation ensues.
Pathetic male protagonist surrounded by more girls than he can handle. Both series have a Rei-type character (pale blue hair, red eyes, etc). Also pure mindfuckery in both animes, but in NGE this is only the last 2 or 3 eps. In Chaos Head, the whole anime is twisted. Also, a mysterious corporation is behind everything in these animes.
The history is very similar to it аниме. The main hero appears in campaign of girls with not ordinary abilities. He is just human. But by the end too becomes one of them. And well certainly love to the girl with pink hair =)))) xDD
Both Higashi no Eden and Chaos Head have a main character who is thrown into a difficult situation with no recollection of their past. They both have the ability to change the world. Higashi no Eden is slightly more realistic while Chaos Head has a lot of supernatural elements, but they both take you on a short 13 episode suspenseful joy ride that just leaves you hungry for more.
At first glance, these two series are a bit different. However, there are various similarities once you start both series.
While sola deals with more romance, Chaos; Head focus on the psychological. Still, the connection is between the main characters and their almost identical past. Furthermore, there is a mystery-like atmosphere in both series that is hard to ignore once the episodes progresses. And who could forget the similar style of action in both series.
their places took the same place, in Shibuya
in ChäoS;HEAd we can see 1 boy with so much girls, but in Digimon Frontier we can see 1 girl with so much boys
the enemy themselve also claim that they had surpassed "God", but it was totally failure that because they underestimate the heros/heroines
the main boy fell in love with the main girl
all chara combine their power to defeat enemy
*nb: the way hero & heroines in ChäoS;HEAd combine their powers, it really resemble "monshou" (crests) in Digimon Adventure
Both protagonist are NEETS and scared to go out in public, Both have female characters that stick with them and care about what happens to them. The main characters find themselves breaking out of there NEET life to help fight against secret organization that wants to control society. The two series include Mystery, Sci-Fi, supernatural, and Romance in them.
Contains that psychological feeling that you get after watching both series as the Protagonist gets paranoid. It also has that thriller-like style where each episode leaves off on some sort of cliffhanger that leaves the viewers wondering "what's going to happen next?"
In both anime mysterious and gory murders occur which involve the main character. Both also have a very complicated plot so it will take a while before you understand what is going on and things are not always what they seem to be. Both have a lot of fighting with blades (swords in ChäoS HEAd, daggers in Kara no Kyoukai)
Both shows deal with making their imaginations become a reality (which is key in both).
The main characters in both have an extremely similar "background".
Both deal with a major company serving as the antagonist of the series, who on the outside seems good but actually has evil ulterior motives.
- Both are psychological
- Both contain gore and nudity
- Both have a very, very, very similar protagonist, a pathetic loser that thinks about nothing but sex.
- Both have supernatural elements, aliens in Gantz and imaginary objects in ChäoS;HEAd
- Both are very hard to watch but they keep you entertained somehow
Both of these anime have to do with characters skewed perceptions of their reality, and how those perceptions play into their lives. Chaos;Head focuses more on the concepts of paranoia and hysteria, while Gakkougurashi explores the vast field of psychological disorders. Both contain characters that may not actually exist.
Main character is an otaku gamer. He hides from real world in anime-related games: dating sims and eroge. While the story line develops, he meets strange girls with mystery powers. World of games and real world mixes in weird way. Both anime are harems but have a very few number of ecchi elements.
Stories that explain the reality of otaku culture, showing the consequences that brings in the lives of their culture, obviously only speak Japanese but a reflects the protagonist who takes refuge in to leave reality and achieve happiness .
Instead of a Yandere girl, its a Yandere Boy. He is also a shut in who lives by himself and hates conversing with people. The plots are different though. Chaos Head has a more fantasy type plot where they kill a bad guy with special powers. Watashi is a girl trying to get by.
both are from 5pb and Nitroplus
both are sci-fi adventure based
both are much more of a fiction than science, compared to Steins;Gate, which is much more of a science than fiction
Chaos;Head is the start of the three 5pb and Nitroplus sci-fi adventure anime. i suggest you start chaos head, then Steins;Gate to understand Robotics;Notes even more
both use 'trigger' system
It envolves a normal guy, that from nowhere is life changes, and all he see's its blood,
The main character got Kaneki personality and have almost the same feeling, when he see's assassins that kills people etc.
Also both animes got blood!
I trully recommend Tokyo Ghoul / ChaoS;HEAd for someone who wants to see some anime similar to Tokyo Ghoul / ChaoS;HEAd .
"ChäoS;HEAd" and "Adventures in Beauty Wonderland" both deal with delusions to a certain degree. The former is focused on the inner thoughts of the protagonist as well as the power of his imagination whilst the latter is based on the classic fantasy story "Alice in Wonderland", which was a tale that evoked the imagination of so many people. It is clear that the creator, Tanaami Keiichi, utilized such wild themes and imagery to really distraught the viewers.
Furthermore, another similarity would be how confusing these two pieces are, especially considering their lack of explanation or poor explanation.
Lastly, these two works will really make you wonder in regards to what possible reason they were ever created for and what went through the minds of the creators as they planned each out. read more
both series are typical harem type anime series consisting of 6 girls plus one guy, with the male and female protagonists as a couple (makoto okano and minamo narukaze and takumu nishijou and rimi sakihata), and both male protagonists have one of the series main female characters as a sister (hinata okano and nanami nishijou), although unlike wind a breath of heart, the male and female leads of chaos head are not childhood friends
Ready for some more mind twisting, shocking, startling, and edge of your seat thrills? ChaoS;HEAd will surely mess with your brain, it's not your usual psychological thriller, more like an "Alexander in Wonderland," throw in a few friends to join the story and you might not be able to follow the events taking place. Add some time to think while these stories progress, you might find yourself in awe at how the author managed to write such a twisted plot.
It may not seem, but these series are almost alike. Both Shiki and Takumi have unusual powers and, at the beginning, they are scared by unusual, beautiful girls. And they get support from female characters. The difference is that in Shingetsutan Tsukihime they are fighting vampires, and in Chaos Head they're fighting illusions.
What is reality and how far are you willing to go to protect those that you care for? When does something just disappear and becoming nothing, and when does it become real. Both of these Anime deal with characters who can summon something and it comes from their personal feelings.
Both shows give the same over all feeling with very similar elements. They both revolve around youth and their unholy powers as they try to learn and cope with the chaos around them. They also share similar elements in which people are trying to exploit the characters for personal idealism and gain. If you enjoyed one, there is a good chance you would enjoy the other.
They're both harems, to say the very least. You have the main hero guy getting more girls one-by-one as the story progresses. Interesting to say, these are both action series where the guy isn't just standing by the sidelines while the ladies do the work. They take the effort to be useful and stand up as a hero to them.
They both are Sci-Fi, where you can manipulate the brain. Both deal with reality and the finding of oneself.
Chaos;Head is a bit more dramalike and seems less real than Ghost in the Shell. Chaos;Head is more a thriller than Ghost in the Shell.
This animes Series are very good stuff for those that are interested in Psicologically and good-stories about mind and fiction. I recommend these because I like good series that have in their posses a great End.
both series are harem type anime with one male protagonist and 6 female heroines. plus both female leads rimi sakihata and nanami konoe are both romantically linked to the male leads takumi nishijo and kenji tomosaka, plus both male leads have one of the 6 heroines as a sister (nanami nishijo and suzuka tomosaka)
Both shows focus on psychological aspects of the mind that lead to semi-paranormal events occurring. The main characters both have a bit of mental problems, although it's much more apparent with chaos;head.
