Casshern Sins, Death Parade Recommendations
Both anime feature nonhuman characters in a death-related setting who meet a large variety of characters that help them grasp the nature of humanity and death.
They both are also very stylish in presentation and, while it's mostly dark, can vary wildly in tone
I just can't stop but think that Death Parade is somewhat identical to Casshern Sins. The ending gives me the Casshern Sins vibes, where the music has a kind of isolated melody.
Also, both are made by the same studio, Madhouse.
Both Death Parade and Casshern Sins are highly psychological and most of the show has an episodic feel to it. Though Death Parade moves on a stirring pace, Casshern Sins is a much more slower and prolonged series.
If you enjoyed Death Parade there is a brief chance you may like Casshern Sins as well.
The two series have been made by Studio Madhouse with exceptionally well-done art and animation. Death Parade has no manga, however, Casshern Sins does not strictly follow its source material. The direction of both series are episodic in the first part and the latter goes to the main story-line that attempts to solve its mystery, but are actually more style over substance in terms of plot.
Both present non-recurring secondary characters and a deadpan male protagonist. In addition, the two provide some existential thought for its themes and are basically one-trick ponies.
However, Death Parade is much faster in pacing while Casshern Sins is
Both of these Anime deeply analyze death and life as well as the meaning or lack there of in both.
Casshern Sins is an older anime so it's animation isn't as good as Death Parade's, but the story is certainly intriguing enough to hold ones attention even if it takes longer to form.
I would recommend this anime to anyone who has an interest in the psychological reasons behind a characters motivations.
