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

Aside from the opening sung by Lia, the animation by P.A.Works, the original concept by Key, the character design by Na-Ga, the soundtrack by ANANT-GARDE EYES, the director being Jun Maeda, the similar humor, the special abilities premise, and unusual-yet-not-unusual school setting-- I could go on-- Charlotte purely -feels- like Angel Beats! and vice versa, if that's any indication. Both are great to watch.

Characters have supernatural power and they attend special schools where students have supernatural powers. Both main girls characters have silver hair.

charlotte is basically a rip-off of angel beats except its not in heaven In charlotte and angel beats both there is (1) a spontaneous and charismatic main girl (2) a glasses guy who serves as the comic relief (3) a clueless main character in the beginning only in charlotte he's more lelouch-esque (4) a lead singer in a girls' band

Same original creator. Also characters' designs were made by the same person, the art style is practically identical. The music was composed by the same creators. The op & ed are performed by the same singers - Lia and Tada Aoi. Both are about a group od teenagers who have something in common. The action takes place at school, and the MC is a new student. Charlotte and Angel Beats share the same sense of humor. Also, Charlotte will most likely introduce a fictional singer/band similiar to GirlDeMo in Angel Beats! (Marina, the voice of Iwasawa from Angel Beats! performing an inserted song).

It's more similar than clannad and Ano hi bla bla in any case. Ano hi bla bla really felt overly dramatic and fake if you ask me...

The plot is kinda similar and I'm not quite sure, but I think the author is the same person who made Angel beats

Mosty slice-of-life with a bit of supernatural thrown in, a good amount of comedy, and an action focused last half. While the backgrounds for the main characters may not be addressed during the first few episodes, there's actually a full episode dedicated to establishing Yu and Otonashi later on in their respective anime. Schools are the main settings for these stories, with a group of teenagers being the main focus. While Otonashi and Yu aren't similar at all in terms of initial personality, they have decent development throughout it that can feel about the same in terms of execution, and this is usually right after   read more

Anime series set in a school with a similar boy and girl MC. Alot of sad pasts and hints for more sadness to come. They both really give out the same vibe with a group who do fun and sad stuff, whatever it is but they'll do it together. They to tend to go out of focus though.

Same studio, same vibe. The main characters in both series are helped/guided by a short powerful girl.

Charlotte and Angel Beats! are very similar to each other. Once you have watched one of them, you need to watch the other. Tomori and Nakaruma both share their leadership roles. Nakamura is the leader of the SSS and Tomori is the leader of the school council. Otanashi and Otosaka are naive, innocent characters, who are at first clueless of what they are doing, and pulled and dragged along by their fellow girl leaders. Memory loss... Retrograde amnesia, is what both Otanashi and Otosaka have. They overcome this by encountering certain things that trigger their memory to remembering the past which they have forgotten.   read more

They have a lot in common! Both manga series are made by the same artist Komowata Haruka, Charlotte's director and Charlotte's sound director worked on Angel Beats! Finally in history, the character will also attend a special school where students have supernatural powers.

Same writer for both shows. Students at a weird school with supernatural powers. The characters, art, and writing are all pretty similar which is to be expected since the same guy wrote them. Good mixture of comedy and feels for both.
report Recommended by CC9ers
Both shows are directed by the same director, so a lot of the influences of Angel Beats transfer over into Charlotte. They have similar humor and the premise of a school with ability users. They honestly just give off the same feel when I watched them. These are honestly both great shows to consider watching!

I don't know why but this Anime just came into mind immediately. School setting. A lot of sad background stories. Student council. Special powers. Both Anime give you the same kind of feel but I'd say Angel Beats goes way deeper in the feel section.

Charlotte and Angel Beats, both animes have a protagonist who joins a group charged with combating a conspiracy (AB is God and in Charlotte are the experiments). Where the leader is manipulative, one believes himself an idol and another is the senpai. Both series involve the fact that the characters acquire a supernatural aspect, be it powers (Charlotte) or be dead (Angel Beats). The series shows the multiple plans to fulfill its mission, where the majority happens in a comic way, to the point that the series does not need to be fun and shows a different background to show the dark past of the   read more

There are similar references and situations in both, and they generally have the same "feel" to it. They both have great music, which plays an important part to the plot at some parts. But although both of them have comedic moments and sometimes lowkey ridiculous gags, Charlotte is definitely more serious and maybe even a little bit "dark" towards the ends.
report Recommended by klannie
Charlotte is made by the same people who gave us Angel Beats! Both use similar vivid animation styles and just give off the same general feel you'll get while watching the other. It's hard to explain, but lets say despite the rather different stories, Charlotte is more or less a carbon copy of Angel Beats! with a new plot and new characters.

Both have sad backgrounds, characters are quite similar, the art is somewhat alike, there is great drama, both the main characters have white/silver hair, and there are super powers in both. If you like super powers and drama, you might like Charlotte.

Bedsides just the fact that both series have been written by the same person, designed and animated by the same producers, what makes these series so similar? First of all, they're both Great comedy series with deep substance. Both got just the right amount of humor that anyone is sure to enjoy. And besides that, they're of the most exciting series ever. Both of some fast pacing and only you're in, it's like a rollercoaster. You can't stop watching once you start. There's many reference to AB! in Charlotte too. While they're different in the theme and mood, they've got some deep hidden themes. While Angel Beats! focuses   read more

The writing style of these two are very similar, mixing in good comedic moments, decent action, and slife of life genericisms,with dark elements that while dont perfectly blend; still compliment eachother. Add in a decent amuont of emotional tension from the previous episodes and all youre mising is a romantic subplot.

They have a similar feel to it. Angel Beats starts off sort of silly but with a paranormal twist to it. Even thought it sounds like it could get serious, it mostly tries to keep a focus on the comedy side. Still it gets dark and sad at times, but it tries to balance them out. Charlotte also has a similar start. There are mostly jokes and fun times at the start, but things get more serious as the story progresses. The difference is that once the seriousness starts, there aren't many comedic moments afterwards. Still, both series are quiet entertaining to watch with their mix   read more

Coming from the same producers, both anime have the same feel. The combination of action, fun and drama is true with both shows.

Made by same people, and both have a similar idea (school/supernatural/romance). Both Charlotte and Angel Beats! are great anime, each in their own right. For Angel Beats!, I recommend giving it at least 3 episodes before deciding whether to continue or drop it.

I found Charlotte and Angel Beats! to be extremely similar. They're both original works by Jun Maeda, and are both by the studio PA Works, so it's no wonder why they turned out like that. Everything except the premises, the basic plot lines, of these two shows are practically identical. Art, animation, characters, comedy, pacing, aesthetic, music, supernatural elements... going back to the characters, I'm pretty sure Charlotte's cast is basically a bunch of carbon copies of Angel Beats! characters minus a few people. Now, personally I hated both of these shows, so if you dislike one, you more than likely are going to dislike the   read more

Both shows have a similar artstyle and (personally) I find them very pretty. The story is deep in both cases, and you just want to watch more of it. Also, both anime have a "good" ending, as you don't mind the story finishing there. Lastly, these two series have many different characters, and a love story which isn't ecchi or harem (FINALLY!).

Drama anime which will make you feel in an emotional turmoil after some scenes. Contains supernatural and sci-fi elements.

The series are similar dramas from the same creators. They both have characters with special abilities in them and both the protagonists join a group in a school and do missions for them. If you like the type of emotional storytelling Key Studios is known for, you should enjoy both the series.

Both are produced by P.A. Works and Maeda Jun. Second, Charlotte is littered with Angel Beats references, and I mean littered. Also, you will board the feels train, cuz this is Maeda Jun we are talking about. An excellent portrayal and Maeda's second chance at a fantastic creation

From the same studio, and a story just as beautiful. This is an example of how two different stories look a like so much. You can also find the personalities of all Charlotte characters back in Angel Beats (reincarnations?).

Both anime share similar themes of loss, friendship, and the struggle to overcome past regrets.

They're written by the same writers, the female protagonist looks exactly like Angel, protagonist has a sappy back story, high school setting, music inserted via a pop idol + pop rock band, tsundere protagonist who's bossy, leader of the group, misunderstood and hence disliked by others, lonely.... does this sound like anybody else? Yeah, she's a mish-mash of Yuki and Angel. Loads of other similarities too, including how the series jumps from comedy to drama to loads of other things I can't mention because I don't want to spoil the series.

so watching these, you might not catch it at first but the animes have the same atmosphere. A group of kids trying to make it by while still having that kind of sad feel to it, it's made by the same person so that's also probably why it has the same feel. But do check it out if you havent already. The anime is great, also has a nice story to it

Another good Anime from Jun Maeda if you enjoyed Charlotte you will enjoy Angel Beats! too or vice versa

I'm not telling you that both theses shows are the same because the opening has the same animation quality, the opening music brings the same feelings, the set-up is the same, the character set-up is the same, the cruel world in which they live in is cruel, the characters have tragic pasts, the characters from both shows have a lot in common, the art style is the same and the plot twists brings the same feelings but yeah, I'm telling you that both these shows are the same.

You like music? Good. Angel beats is about a load of young people who were killed. For some reason they were tormented, and forced to live forever in a high school. In this, they set themselves a target for the biggest bullies who ever died. Bullying this young girl who doesn't communicate well with others, they force her to develop new ways to manipulate her body for defense. In the anime, these stubborn children refuse to come to terms with their deaths and move on. It isn't until very late in the anime when they are forced to give up immortality that they actually move on. Up   read more

Impacted with the idea of supernaturalism, both are original stories written by Jun Maeda with similarities alike to one another. While they started off as lighthearted comedies with a tinge of silliness, the group of teenagers will have to face emotional turmoils leading up to drama, action, and subtle romance. Backed by a beautiful quality in audiovisual, these two are the manifestation of a touching tale.
report Recommended by OVERPOWERED99
These two anime have the same atmosphere, I would say. They both involve a male main protagonist who is thrown into a new situation he is mostly unfamiliar with, and forms bonds with the other characters. Both of these anime teach important lessons about what to value in life. It also is one of the reasons why I'm an organ donor ;)

They're both pretty funny at many points, contain some action, but despite all of that, they both manage to become serious and depressing.

Both series are created by the fabulous Jun Maeda, are adapted from Key visual novels, supernatural and school setting, features a main character with silver hair (Angel & Nao), and the series opening and ending were sung by Lia and Aoi Tada, respectively.

Both are produced from the same creator and studio. The comedy and the themes are really similar and enjoyable if you like one of them. However, both had the same flaws, consisting of rushed pacing near the end.
report Recommended by Prizma10
Many of the creators and staff behind Angel Beats went on to create Charlotte, so there are many similarities—some of the same character archetypes (Takajou is literally Takamatsu in terms of appearance and same voice actor); a supernatural anime that primarily takes place at a school and kinda has slice-of-life-ish episodes; a group of students at said school being lead by a girl with a serious attitude; an interesting blend of comedy, drama, and action; music, etc... honestly I could go on, if you've seen one of these, go ahead and try the other.

Angel beats and charlotte have the same structure: the first half of the show is comedy based and the second one is drama based. I found Charlotte much more clearer to follow and better in general terms. It had a stronger impact on me than Angel Beats

Another creation of Maeda Jun sensei which can make anyone cry like a baby. A plot and the stroy of evry individual characters is well established and nicely placed. The whole anime is heart warming with amazing soundtracks and the ending has a different feel to it.

Class of the preternatural. Angel Beats and Charlotte follow abnormal schools in which the MCs all spend time together as well as helping one another out during these times. With AB, uninformed Otonashi is teleported into a school located in the Afterlife. With Charlotte, Yuu is sent to Hoshinoumi Academy, an academy with teenagers having special powers. Both anime present Otonashi's and Yuu's time with their allocated groups learning about different people's values in life. Both are pleasing heartwarming comedic anime with a side of supernatural elements and drama by the same creator Jun Maeda.

Both of these animes have really sad things and great musics/songs, graphics and everything else that you can imagine!

Angel Beats! and Charlotte come from the same creative team. Both follow a group of teenagers in a paranormal setting, Angel Beats being set in the Afterlife and Charlotte being set in a world where some teenagers gain superpowers upon entering puberty. They are similarly structured, being filled with comedy and wacky characters. If you loved Angel Beats, there's a high chance you'll like Charlotte.

Charlotte is drama-action anime that doesn't show it's full "power" at the beginning. In the first ~8 episodes the anime is already good but the end is the insane and lovely part. It's the same at Angel Beats!, at the beginning they show you a normal good anime but then it totally changes and becomes totally interesting. In general i think this anime is a must-watch, if you haven't watched it yet, do it!

Both have energetic leaders and lead a team which works to fulfill a particular goal. Both have bands and though the leaders of these bands appear for a brief period of time, they play a vital role and have a greater impact later in the whole series Leaders of the team in both anime have a sad past. One of the main characters in both anime have a family member who are very influential in the character development, combined with their tragic past.
