The mystery in both series works the same way. They both give extreme thrills as the main character goes through obstacles to discover the truth. There are lots of chase scenes that remind me of each other. Not only that, both series have similar style of art and music where it's very traditional/classic and revolves around myths and stories. They are both incredible mystery/sci-fi series.

Anime with a simple narrative, but with the highlight of the protagonist the story gets very exciting and reflective about the filthy society in which we live, and showing how rotten healthy human beings, by the vision of a pessimist surrounded by "gentle girls."

Angel Beats, an anime that begins funny and serious at times, after some events, as revealing the stories of some characters is gaining more emotion, then revealing the story of the protagonist can not contain the tears. Overall very good, but with some problems of scripts but nothing that disrupts the emotion that the anime passes. Overall very good with charismatic characters and a protagonist to be proud of.

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV)
Watching Classroom of the Elite really reminded me of Grisaia. The MCs are very similar, and the main supporting characters/harem around the MCs are similar too. Even the themes resemble each other to a large extent, both revolve around the protagonist helping a bunch of girls with their respective issues, Grisaia to a larger extent than Classroom of the Elite. Parts of the storylines in both verge towards the ridiculous. They both have a relatively large amount of unnecessary fanservice, but nice animation and sound. Classroom of the Elite does the school aspect better and focusses on the environment more, but Grisaia has better developed characters and a more complex plot overall. Grisaia is also quite a bit more mature than Classroom of the Elite. Nonetheless, if you liked one, you might as well give the other a try. XD

Instead, focusing on a group of 4 girls with different ages and grades who would hang out together in their countryside, going school together and spend many precious moment together. It is SO SO SO heartwarming that it really set the bar for the Slice of Life genre. It is one of the best and most enjoyable SOL anime among many other titles. I often say that it is not easy to produce a great SOL anime and Non Non Biyori is definitely one that did. If you life Yuru Camp △ because of the comedy and heartwarming scenes, then I assure you that you will FALL IN LOVE with Non Non Biyori.

Ao no Exorcist
Both are shounen series about exorcists whose protagonists regularly drink respect women juice. The female background characters are treated with lots of respect and are surprisingly well fleshed out for shounen series, which I think is due to both series having female authors. For example, in D. Gray-man, although one of the main female characters wears a short skirt and one of her main abilities is in her boots, there are no panty shots, which made me really glad. And in Blue Exorcist, Rin and Yukio's main love interest, Shiemi, although somewhat of a homebody, is still characterized as having her own goals and interested, outside of the main male protagonists.

Travelling protagonist, away from the comfortable confines of their homes, thrust into an unfamiliar situation in order to achieve an important goal. Protagonists are incredibly sociable, befriending all characters they come into contact with. Protagonists idolise an older person, but when presented the opportunity, are deathly afraid to actually interact with this idol. Even with the large gap in time of production, you can still find similarities, especially in the art style, such as their large eyes, a physical manifestation of their intelligence and later, their perseverance. Neither of these anime are life-changing experiences. Follow all conventions and stereotypes of their respective genre. Both utilise a very diverse voice cast, producing clear audio from your speakers. Characters are well designed, in order to match their personalities and traits, producing a wide range of characters to explore.

Crybaby is abundance means. Animation is great. HU keeps high quality by plural studios. Crybaby proves ability in precious scenes.

Yeah, this point is for adults. I'll write about more characters. Guts and Fudou fights for their faith and human. However, Griffith and Ryou thinking save world in another way. According to fair way. Casca and Miki are their friends. Especially Casca cares Guts, Miki cares Fudou. This triangle is very alike. In spite of Era is different. What a miracle. Anyhow, If you loved KDB, you'll like Devilman: Crybaby positively. Probably Berserk's author was influenced by Devilman. If that's the case, I'm so glad as fan of both shows.

He is ostensibly Fudou's friend, but the other side of his face is proud as same as Vergil. To change about Devil May Cry's anime version. Both have stylish design, stylish fights, stylish voice acting, stylish dialogues. Both OP song is instrumental. Sound and Quality are over-the-top good. ED song also nice. Protagonists fights Demons for human. In addition, Demons design is similar. Way of appearance, too. Music genres and Story structures are different. Devil May Cry is Rock, and just episodic process. Crybaby is Electronic, and continuous plot. Atmospheres are different. Devil May Cry is not too heavy. Crybaby is dark and serious relatively. Both Animation is nice and unique. Devil May Cry is realistic style, Crybaby is cartoonish style. There are easy to the eyes. Maybe. Crybaby have more splendid quality. But only show that outweigh stylish...DEVIL MAY CRY.

Both have stupendous art style and totally unexpected plot. People start to die off one after another. Ryuk and Devilman are slightly similar because Devilman's look commixture of Shinigami. Light and Ryou's personality also very similar. They are cunning and have a big ambition. This time, I deliberately reduced similarities. It is difficult for me to compare both shows more than ever before. Crybaby is more esoteric than DN. Seriously. You need to be prepared. Crybaby is full of surprises.

Anime: Mahoutsukai no Yome

Mahoutsukai no Yome
The main thread that ties Magus Bride and Death Parade together is the dynamic between the two leads of each series. For one, the male leads (Decim of Death Parade and Elias of Magus Bride) are both tall, stoic, imposing, otherworldly and otherwise well-dressed figures. Being immortal, neither of them can comprehend human emotion and show very little of it themselves (one has a bone-face so he can't help it). However, they are rounded out by their respective female counterparts. Both Chiyuki in Death Parade and Chise in Magus Bride serve as assistants to their respective male counterparts. Because both are mortal and new to the worlds in which they are introduced, Decim and Elias serve as their mentors, respectively. However, the gentlemen themselves may have something to learn from the ladies about what it means to be human. Other common factors between the two are somber themes dealing with death and depression, beautiful artwork, lovely soundtracks, and a colorful cast of secondary characters.
