Durarara!!, Steins;Gate Recommendations
Durarara!! and Steins;Gate share quite a few interesting themes:
* Both start off with a slow paced "slice of life" ambience that, very subtly, foreshadows the following...
* ...Jump into a neatly intertwined plot.
* Insane characters;
* Norse Mythology references;
* A sprinkle of metaphysics: Time Travel (in Steins;Gate) and Norse Myth Fairies (in Durarara!!).
If you liked any of these aspects in one series, you'll most likely also enjoy the other.
Also, there's the "same voice actor" bonus: Mamoru Miyano and Hana Kanazawa.
Well, at first glance, you don't see much similarity between these two as both series starts out with an almost slice-of-life like scenario. However...
- Both later gets into complex plots
- Both have suspense and thriller like scenarios
- Both have comedy and drama
- Both have darker tone of the story as the episodes progresses
All in all, you will enjoy both of these series. At least, I hope.
Both anime are about bizarre phenomena occurring in a city setting, with various events that all end up tying together in the end.
They both have the same investigative type feel dealing with fictional topics like time travel or mystical creatures. If you liked one you'll probably like the other
Both shows start off very slow paced, but eventually builds up to an intense plot. Although the plot is completely different, they both gave off a similar vibe. There is a lot of suspense and unexpected plot turns.
-Both animes makes use of non-linear storytelling
-Good Plot twists
Both can at turns feel like a slice of life series, but splice in more compelling narratives that keeps you engaged. Also the settings (contemporary urban Japan), make the atmosphere feel similar in both.
Both very character driven stories and both are urban fantasies
