Crazy girls "harem" for the main character, mystery and torture.
The similarities are evident.
Stalkers, mysteries, murders, blood, baseball bats, tasers, red-haired psychotic girls, blue & white uniforms, 1 guy & many girls: all these things surely will remind you of Higurashi.
Mysterious murders, psychopathic girls, blood and horror. These shows have them all and if you enjoyed one, the other would be a great watch too.
Both anime are mysterious.
What's more some characters are similar... eg Miya Satsuki looks alike to Rena Ryuuguu, Ame Ochibana resemble to Rika Furude...
Both involve crazed girls trying to kill everyone.
Same ambiance ; Mystery, horror, serial killers and an innocent main character surronded by suspicious girls. It's enough violent , tripped , and as interesting as Higurashi.
A bunch of lunatics, along with torture and murder, but a somewhat normal guy. Very Similar, except Denpateki isn't nearly as close to a mindf*ck as Higurashi. Both are brilliant!
Both series features some prominent violent scenes involving death and murder. There is blood to be spilled as well as a strange mystery-like atmosphere present in the background of the series.
Both series also have the school setting, contain yandere like characters, and plot twists.
Both series are horrific and intelligent performed in a well way that are sure to be worth the time to watch.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Denpa Teki na Kanojo show how tragic situations can affect on your psyche. Plot is divided on some stories (just like slice of life) which give informations about personalities of characters. This type of narration is quite enjoyable and good for them. Characters of theses serials are really similar. They are rather typical for harem anime but their problems which have to deal are very good and give lots of fun. But the best point of these titles is great atmosphere. it is really deep and you feel that something wrong will happen but you never know what and
Both mislead the viewer initially, only to take some very interesting turns later on. For the best experience, watch without reading the plot or reviews. The vibe and the feel they give off is very interesting, and with both shows it is hard to pinpoint what exactly makes them good.
Similar atmosphere, many characters are mentally unstable and are very homogenous to the characters in Higurashi and is on the subject of mysterious crimes including murder. You'll probably find something that you enjoy in this anime.
