Both psychological thrillers are about people forced into a "kill or be killed" kind of survival game. Where the characters are forced to question their own morality.

Both series have a kill-em-all survival game set-up. Battle Royale gets a lot more gratuitous with the sex and violence (not that Mirai Nikki lacks either of those), and Mirai Nikki has some mild fantasy elements, but if you like enforced kill-or-be-killed scenarios, both deliver in that respect -- and might give you some nightmares in the process.

Did you just see a new character on the page? Then you can expect the same fates for said characters in both series. It might not get them now, but it will catch up with them at some point. Also the "one must survive by killing all the others" thing is present in both series, as well as equipping the characters with weapons in order to help them achieve this (future versions of diaries in Mirai Nikki, random things like scythes, guns, and forks in Battle Royale). Many of the characters in both series are also pretty damn crazy.

Mirrai Nikki differs as it features supernatural elements with specialised phones as the character fight against each other for the hopes of becoming the next   read more

Battle Royale's influence, at least talking about the original book, is undeniably big, even if you can find similar plots from older works, it's with the book that this kill or be killed game was popularized, Mirai Nikki is one of the many works post of Battle Royale that would utilize this basically same basic plot, so most of the themes of death are present in both, Mirai Nikki adds sobrenatural elements to make it's story more of it's own, but overall both are recommended series of the same genre.
