What is death? What is friendship? Both series explore these themes in different ways, but in ways which touch the target audience. The audience is also likely to fall in love with the characters of either series, making for a rather nice slice-of-life watch with a supernatural twist.

Both written by the famous Maeda Jun and have the same amazing production behind his works. Both however could be better if longer, but are still good given their short allotted time slot. Both will make you smile, laugh, and cry as are typical Maeda Jun's works

Life after death, or better say: afterlife. Both series are significantly based on this concept. Which makes them both overall quite interesting. While Death Parade might result to have a darker atmosphere and tone than Angel Beats, this last one instead has somewhat of a more "colorful" atmosphere and in some occasions can get deeper than DP, but both series can still have lighter and funny moments here and then. Esepcially AB at the start. Now, we need to mention that both plots are different from eachother but still, the series share a great deal: - aside from the already stated strong main concept of the  read more

Both series have a white-haired, cute girl protagonist. They become friends with the male protagonist - a genuinely nice and sweet guy - and their friendship gradually changes over the course of the story. They both have humour integrated into an otherwise emotional story.

Similar animation style, both involving a mystery surrounding a high school. Similar character archetypes. Really funny moments of randomness, but can be very poignant at times, too.

While Haibane Renmei couldn't be more dissimilar, the concept of the characters being in a supposed afterlife or purgatory are both extremely integral to the setting. Although in Angel Beats!, it seems like they fear the next step and thus rebel in anyway to ensure they don't disappear. However, in Haibane Renmei, they do the exact opposite and are more resigned to their fate, and there is little conflict.

Fates entwining, paths crossing perhaps only for a brief moment. Romance, sadness, packed together with a nice little bow of a well written plot, but prepare as well for a good cry.

Both directed by Seiji Kishi. You will see a lot of similar comedic gags between the two series.

The pull comes from wanting a last moment with the ones a person loves, yet the art style for each leans towards the Gothic style with the slight horror twist with the plot. Both anime are beautifully made.

Both series take place in and around an abnormal school, with its students trying desperately to understand their situation with deaths taking place pretty much constantly. In Angel Beats! death is cheap (and impermanent), but Another plays for keeps.

In both series the main characters are trapped in a world where they would rather not be in. They try to resist and fight this world in order to regain their freedom. This is why I would recommend watching both series if you liked one of them. Both of them also involve a love story

Seems like they're at a school type of setting trying to get over some sort of past they had to move on and live life. Each character has some unique personality or past that is gone over and also has a story to go with them.

Both have great stories, are very emotionally charged, and have similar feels. Mahou is much darker in the bulk of the episodes, while Angel Beats has more comic relief, but both are powerful anime that I highly recommend.

Secrets involving the main female protagonist, but the theme of death run through both. Both use very similar Gothic styles with only slight differences color wise, but there is an emotional pull regarding the characters. The series get very dark, and very emotional, but doesn't dive in full blown right away.

Both have swapping between drama and comedy at a fast pace. Both have similar girl main interests. A stretch, but anyone who enjoys one can probably enjoy the other.

They give out the same feeling. They both have really good somewhat crazy humor moments, and touching moments, too, while the overall plot is poor and one can hardly speak about the whole anime story development. Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? and Angel Beats are similar in this: they're not your usual episodic anime and it seems like there's a story that progresses from one episode to another, but in reality it's only a ghost of the story that only takes place to move the anime on and to connect those funny and sad moments. And it'll be fair to say those moments are nice  read more

The Day I Became A God and Angel Beats are two anime created by Jun Maeda of Key (a company known for Kanon, Air, Clannad, and Little Busters) fame and produced by P.A. Works.

Both have a group of characters who are fighting the authorities (rebellion) 
report Recommended by EarWormOfNight
They both have a group of kids in an exaggerated school setting (one school in the afterlife and one school that has students battle). They're both comedies and both have some romance in them as well. Angel Beats is a little softer on the romance and comedy, and more emotional and deep as well. It really pulls you into the story. Baka to Test on the other-hand is a slapstick comedy that will have you laughing to yourself twenty minutes after you've finished watching an episode. The romance is balanced in well so that you end up loving many of the characters to boot.

The series share a similar doom and gloom attitude which leaves the viewer hoping for a better future, but whether the better future comes would provide spoilers. Specifically, there is this fight for one’s life going on, yet this normality that contradicts this fight which the characters find themselves needing to balance out.

Both anime have good action, with guilty crown having some of the best fighting scenes I've seen in a while. Also both Angel Beats and Guilty Crown tend to be more serious anime with a little comedy thrown in.

They both share a similar characteristic of playing with your emotions, although Mirai Nikki has a much much stronger element of fear added in the mix. Both have strong plots and dark character backstories that become motives for their struggles. One could also argue that Mirai Nikki is a perversion of Angel Beats! since the participants are forced to fight each other to alleviate their live's sorrows instead of working together to overcome them.

Out of all the seasons of Little Busters, LB!:Ex is propably the most similar to Angel Beats, mainly because of the first "Arc" of Ex. We have a girl fighting against some kind of force on the grounds of school, the main guy helping her out and then them trying to find something in the underground of said school - meanwhile trying to dodge several traps etc. The similarities go on like that but to keep this spoiler free I won't go into more detail on this - you know what I mean by Angel Beats and the first Arc of LB!:Ex being pretty similar  read more

Yuuki Yuuna was first opened with the mission to protect their God and world, while Angel Beats! was the opposite. Both has similar atmosphere of lighthearted, comedies, mysteries, and past dramas, but there's more bitter truth waiting for them as the stories progress... Both are directed by the same director, hence if you watch them closely, they have similarities in term of direction styles and comedies.

The charisma of this Anime is similar, but not the exact same. With Daisuke Niwas special side, it's including fun that makes Angel Beats! so special. The characters in general are similar. The story is not comparable, all though the title seems almost similar.

Both of these anime's an inspiring MC that meets a white haired girl who's both quiet and a little violent. They equally amusing comedy scenes, and the conclusion for both series is heart-wrenching and headache inducing (Meaning you'll be on the edge of your seat as your heart pumps too quickly and you get headache). So really, stop reading this recommendation and go watch Angel Beats (if you haven't, it's pretty famous you know).

Though they start off very differently, the eventual idea of both series centres around a cast of characters with internal scars which prevent them from leaving the place they are trapped in. Angel Beats is more slice of life-ish while Mayoiga is more centred around mystery.

Themes of memory and identity, being trapped in another world, computer programs, the sense of a larger plot not being fully explained... There are plenty of big differences between them, but both shows have these elements,and they're both very enjoyable in their own regard. A lot of thought seems to have gone into their concepts. Plus, the creators of Angel Beats! seem to have ambitious plans, so it may come to have the same kind of multimedia project kind of feel that .hack's been expanding on for so long.

These two are among my favorites for "music-incorporated" anime. While in both series there is an emphasis of plot elsewhere from music, music nevertheless weaves itself into the fabrics of the story, producing a perfect, brilliant, interesting complement to the main storylines.

For some reason, I always compare these 2 a lot. Both have a huge set of characters, Angel Beats somewhat fails on this while Baccano succeeds. Both include comic relief breaks to make the pacing refreshing in the forms of T.K. and Isaac and Miria. If you love to see a big cast of characters go crazy, both are must see.

Both of these animes use sound to strongly convey the feelings. While sound isn't the primary focus of Angel Beats, it helps to drive a lot of the emotions, just like in Vivy. If you're a fan of sad/bittersweet animes and a fan of a good soundtrack, both of these animes are great picks.

Various moments of pure amusement, really funny scenes, and epic battles are the main similarities between Noragami and Angel Beats. It combines comedy with drama and mystery. In Noragami, the characters who are living an afterlife (just as on Angel Beats) and fight ghosts which haunt the city and corrupt souls. Yato is a silly version of Yuri, who wants to keep peace and fight the evil, besides his bad past. Some characters can't remember anything from the time they were alive, which is relatable with Angel Beats

It's Otonashi in a new form: I say this because the English Voice actor is Otonashi from Angel Beats! And during Episode 2, he says something that Otonashi would say and act, plus it feels like the English Voice Actor wanted it to be like Angel Beats, and I sense it when he voiced this show. If you miss Angel Beats, and wanted more, this is the show, and it's all thanks to Otonashi English Voice Actor.

Angel beats is about accepting death, The persona 3 movies (and the game aswell) also have a similar theme of accepting and living with death though persona 3 does go about it in a darker way.

If you like emotional Anime, I really recommend 'Angel Beats', an anime series with beautiful courage, love, and friendship. Otonashi awakens only to learn he is dead. A rifle-toting girl named Yuri explains that they are in the afterlife, and Otonashi realizes the only thing he can remember about himself is his name. Otonashi decides to join the SSS and battle Tenshi, but he finds himself oddly drawn to her. While trying to regain his memories and understand Tenshi, he gradually unravels the mysteries of the afterlife.

This work really reminds me of Angel Beats!'s spirit. Although the plot has nothing to do, the kind of humour is quite similar (crazy, but not absurd). The characters are very charismatic and they have their own little trouble. Also, once in a while, this piece offers you some sad and dramatic moments.

This is an odd recommendation, but both of these are hilarious without relying on cuteness or grossness. Grand Blue is humour for an adult audience while Angel Beats! has more tame jokes (still gut-busting though). If you've seen Angel Beats! are looking for something that is actually laugh-out-loud funny, then watch Grand Blue. If you've seen Grand Blue and are looking for hilarious comedy that is not gross (like the top Prison School recommendation), then watch Angel Beats! (just be aware that it is more dramatic and has an actual plot).

Both involve main characters who are unable to die, but often randomly get maimed to the point where they would die, for no other reason than random comedy. Angel Beats!is a little more story and a little less humor (not by much) than Kore wa Zombie though. Both of the aforementioned main characters are also 'brought back to life' in a sense as well, with some sort of back story as to how they died.

Both deal with moving on from the afterlife and presents death in similar ways. Though Angel Beats! is more serious and action oriented and Konohana Kitan is much more slice of life and lighthearted.

Both series use concepts that are synonymous with other genres as allegories in a coming of age story. Both series also have similar senses of humour and end in similar fashions.

Both of these animes have really good music in them, one one than others  
report Recommended by MidnightSprinkle
While at a glance, the two seem to be entirely different genres, both anime share similar themes of afterlife and memory loss. When I watched demon slayer, I felt the same emotions I felt when I watched angel beats. It's a bittersweet feeling. Life regrets and the leap it takes to "move on" from said regrets are perfectly represented in both series.

To me, these are similar for the quality of their music, their animation, and their stories. Shelter might be a one episode story, but it still feels warm from the sadness that the main characters of both shows must feel when they think about their "end of the world" kind of past.

Sora and Otonashi—young boys transported to another world. The difference is that the former is well-versed in the rules of that world, whereas the latter isn't. Of course, the real parallels come in when you consider that they both have lolis who are better than them at their job accompany them to victory, while at one point, they both also manage to turn an enemy, who happens to be a cute girl, into a loyal friend with useful powers. While Angel Beats! sports more of a melancholic vibe to everything, being a Jun Maeda work, No Game No Life is much sillier and more exciting.  read more

Scout. AB and BSD both feature a protagonist who is unlettered of the complicated surrounding they find themself in. With this, they are both forced to join this crew in their mission that needs every bit of help they can find from rarities as themselves. AB does this with Otonashi joining the SSS in their quest to get revenge on God. BSD does this with Atsushi joining the Armed Detective Agency in policing against the crimes within Yokohama. Both are good action and comedy anime with both having the slightest touch of romance.

Both are anime that are mostly funny, but can and will probably hit your feels out of the blue. Though the situations are vastly different the vibes feels pretty much the same. Also both made me cry like a kid.

If you liked the comedy in Angel Beats! you will likely enjoy Assassination Classroom. They both have teens trying to kill what they believe to otherworldly beings that they later form alliances with to take out the main threat. Aside from having very similar animation styles and lots of GUNS, they both have a similar formula of emotion+comedy to create an overall enjoyable experience. However the emotion in Ansatsu isn't as strong but the comedy is a lot better than in Angel Beats!. They're similar enough that you'll like them, but not so much that you won't be able to appreciate them for what they  read more

-Main character enters into a new world that they never knew existed (Angel Beats: world of those who died and cannot rest peacefully and Houkago: the existence of alien, space, and magic) -Meet irreplaceable/memorable friends and shows you their pasts, their wish, and why they ended up in the position where they are now -Both involves having to do a mission/a purpose -Both the animes romance are very similar to each other -Basically, both animes are very similar, but Angel Beats is more dramatic and dark. As for Houkago, it's more happy, yet depressing. It's not as deep as Angel Beats, but both are very great. -If you like Angel  read more

Both shows involves with being dead, unable to die and using guns and swords to fight. Although, Zombie loan focuses on killing zombies, Angel beats focuses on a story on people who are unable to live their youth lives properly. Zombie Loan involves more mystical(supernatural) abilities/creatures.

Both have strange plot, good comedy and dramatic parts, thin love story and too little episodes. Angel Beats! is closer to mainstream though.

Both Angel Beats! and Durarara!! are amazing for the same reasons, including engrossing (but much different) story lines, lovable characters, great use of animation and art style, in depth development of characters and much more. For this they're both similar and just as amazing as each other. Don't let the difference in genre put you off, if you enjoyed Angel Beats! and can handle violence in anime then I 100% recommend Durarara!!

Both have girls with guns fighting, although in Upotte, the girls are guns and in Angel Beats, they are not. Both have some good humor in it, but Angel Beats swings more to the romance side. I highly recommend people who saw Upotte to watch Angel Beats.

Both are heart warming stories that deal with the daily lives of teenagers and an occurring supernatural event. Animes talk about death, life and reincarnation.  
report Recommended by Princes
Both series fluctuate between surreal comedy and sombre drama as a group of spirited teenagers struggle with their core existences. And as the main characters are so easy to root for, this leads to a vivid emotional experience for the typical viewer.

Both series involves action, comedy, drama, and girls with guns. Crude humor and stunning soundtrack are also present.

- Heavy emotional involvement - Involve watching someone slip away right before your eyes - Touching character interactions - Good character development (which Kowarekake no Orgel amazingly manages to do in 30 minutes) - Moe - Tugs on your heart strings - Great music, including some tracks with powerful vocals In reality, Kowarekake no Orgel is good if you're a fan of ANY of Key's works, but it's most similar to Air in terms of plot.

The Main characters look very much alike Both shows have a 'Tachibana' who both look alike (hair, eyes, politeness etc.) Both anime have the same feel to them bought about by the illuminating colour schemes They don't have over stylised fight scenes They're both very light-hearted (exception Angel Beats at the end) And of course mysterious girl introduces main character to whole new world
