They both have similar type of psycho-horror and one very, very dangerous yandere girl...
report Recommended by Seviexe
Both of these are seemingly harmless at first, but then get pretty violent later >3

Did episode 6 of School Days creep you out? Did you love all the revenge in episode 12? Did you love the loli killers? Higurashi's got this, times 10. Less about love, but an amazing series with a diversity of scenes.

It's basically like School days minus the harem scenes. Plus cute psycho loli characters!

School Days portrays the innocence of High School Drama and intensifies it with a little more disturbing conclusion than others. However, if you're looking for extreme "disturbances" with" innocent and cute" Anime girls then look no further than Higurashi's twisted masterpiece.

if you watch higurashi no naku koro ni then watch school days,after watching 12 episodes of school days it's reminds me of higurashi i have no idea why but it's just pop up of my head after watching the ending.*(it's an anime that you have to watch till the end)

Both have that "mind fuck" element. School days is easy to follow b/c it doesn't have multiple overlapping arcs. Higurashi is a must watch if you like crazy twisted violence!

Both start out pretty nice, but get really dark later on.

Both start off innocent and harmless at first but ends in gruesome violence. For mature audiences.

- Both were visual novels adapted to anime. - Some psychological drama. - Yandere fans probably will like it.

I actually watched School Days because I read so many times that people who liked Higurashi would probably like it. And I did, it was great. In the start, School Days seem pretty normal, but towards the end, it's not that normal. I'm not a fan of this type of anime, but I liked it a lot! So, if you like School Days, watch Higurashi, and if you like Higurashi, watch School Days.

Both Higurashi and School Days are psychological dramas and have crazy plot twists. ^_~

Both are based on a Japanese horror VG, and both have a bunch of moe characters placed in a creepy situation. If you enjoyed the creepy, disturbing and totally unexpected [if you ask me Oo"] ending og School Days you will certainly enjoy watching Higurashi. :)

Higurashi has taken out the element of sex and added in more murderous intent. Same feeling that makes you think that b****es be crazy. School days has more stupid characters while you don't mind the consequences that they recieve but in Higurashi you know that bad things are gonna happen and you try to not get attached to the characters but your heart still surges when something happen

Both anime's start off with a nice simple setting that's peaceful then later on the anime gets very intense in a very short period

Both Higurashi and School Days are thrillers that take you on a phycological rollercoaster ride! School Days starts of with a boy named Makoto Ito who sees this incredibly gorgeous girl at the train station named Kotonoha Katsura. He takes her picture and dreams about asking her out but doesn't know how to! Ito's friend, Sekai Saionji, decides to help him with his girl problems. Over the course of the episodes Sekai starts noticing she has feelings for Ito and secretly wants to be with him. She tries her best to hide it from him and keep the relationship between them lighthearted and fun. The story is built   read more

At first glance, the show seems to be nice and fluffy, with pleasant characters. However, once the show gets dark, the characters go absolutely insane, and they may be blood when everything's over.

• Both anime have a WTF?! moments. • Both have unexpected plot / twists.

Psychological, yanderes: If you like those you'd definitely want to check out this.

⦿ Freakiest slices of life ⦿ Really not that innocent looking ⦿ Main boy and +5 girls harem but no ecchi, only gore and creeps ⦿ The artistical composition and music is on point and suits A LOT ⦿ Me myself got them empathy feelings in these ones - The differences are mostly the genre and buildup of the characters, Higurashi has some paranormal ideas and School days does not. But the vibes are similar imo

Both animes have their own little harem going on. Characters in both animes do not have much of a backbone and are very indecisive. Animes begin vibrant, cute, and cuddly until they gradually get darker and the characters begin to go from best friends to enemies until they lose trust in each other. Betrayal, lying, and hiding things from each other affect the story. Both have love triangles that have characters sharing similar personality traits characters in School Days. Both have superstitions and traditions, School Days is the breakroom, the dance at the fire, and the cellphone charm. Whereas in When They Cry it is   read more

The two are completely insane, and are pretty dark regardless of their beginning. Both focus in the psychology of the characters pretty much all the time, making the variable of hate/love in those characters much more difficult. They have differences though; Higurashi is more horror, School Days is more drama... but at the end, I can't spoil but School Days will remind Higurashi for those who have seen it first. I reccomend both to fans of Psychological anime or Horror anime, because they are masterpiece on those genres.

If you watched Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, I warn you, do not watch School Days, cause you will suffer even more then HnNKn characters. If you actually enjoyed school days then you will like the twists of Higurashi, even though it's a bit more realistic in the end.

Both start out cute and innocent and later comes horror that catches the viewer off guard. Both also contain yandere that do some crazy shit. I HIGHLY recommend Higurashi since it is better.

Higurashi and School day dont this anime for child because they have Violent killing people,deep story,and taking school that way make this series have deep story.
report Recommended by Syureria
On the outside, they are seemingly cute, nice-looking young ladies. But is only when you slowly swim deeper into them, deeper than they have allowed for, is when you unleash quite a disturbing presence, that was none other than their true colours, to begin with. Higurashi and School Days are excellent examples of anime that subvert expectations, using a seemingly harmless setup with an ever so slightly eerie wave passing every now and then. The two manage to bring forward some great turn of the events in ways a viewer may have not seen coming. The two do this with everyday box standard setups, such as the   read more
