10. Shakugan no Shana


Synopsis – The world has become a slaughtering ground for the Crimson Denizens, mysterious beings from a parallel universe who thrive on the life energy of humans. These merciless murderers only leave behind scant remainders of souls called “Torches,” which are mere residues that will eventually be destroyed, along with the very fact of the victims’ existence from the minds of the living. In an ambitious endeavor to put an end to this invisible, hungry massacre, warriors called Flame Hazes relentlessly fight these monsters.

One fateful day, Yuuji Sakai ceases to be a regular high schooler—he becomes trapped in a crevice of time and is suddenly attacked by a Denizen. Coming to his rescue just in the nick of time is a nameless hunter who seems no different from an ordinary young girl except for her blazing eyes and burning crimson hair. However, before Yuuji can learn anything more about his situation, he discovers that he has already been reduced to a Torch—merely a scrap of memory waiting to be extinguished.

Similarity –They feature very likable female leads with special powers who drag the male protagonist into situations. Both male protagonists also have powers and are not really human. They have similar feelings to them with similar mixes of comedy and drama.

9. RDG: Red Data Girl

Synopsis – Fifteen-year-old Izumiko Suzuhara just wants to be a normal girl, but that is easier said than done. Raised in a shrine deep in the mountains, she grew up extremely sheltered and painfully shy. She also has the unfortunate tendency to destroy any electronic device simply by touching it.

Despite this, she still wants to try and change her life. To mark her determination to follow through on this transformation, Izumiko begins by cutting her bangs, which shocks both her classmates and protectors. And that’s only the start! Her guardian, Yukimasa Sagara, forces his son, Miyuki, to come to the mountain shrine and become Izumiko’s lifelong servant and protector. Too bad Izumiko and Miyuki cannot stand each other. They have known each other since they were children, and Miyuki bullied her terribly. He simply does not understand what is so special about Izumiko. His father calls Izumiko a goddess, but that cannot be true…can it? Will Izumiko and Miyuki work past their differences? Is she actually a literal goddess? Find out in RDG: Red Data Girl!

Similarity – These two anime are similar in the aspect of supernatural, spirituality, and the growth of the characters due to those things.
They both have a boy that meets a girl with supernatural powers and each affects one another somehow.

8. Blood+

Synopsis- Saya Otonashi is a seemingly ordinary girl living a mundane life with her adoptive family in Okinawa City. In fact, her only peculiarities are suffering from anemia and being unable to remember any of her life beyond the previous year.

However, Saya’s forgotten past quickly comes back to haunt her—one night, she is attacked at school by a creature that feeds on human blood. Just when all hope seems lost, a mysterious man named Haji appears and fends off the creature temporarily. But when her rescuer forces her to drink his blood, Saya suddenly enters a trance and slays the monster with ease, using her own blood as a catalyst.

Saya then learns of an organization named Red Shield, founded for the sole purpose of defeating the hellish beasts. Now Saya and Haji must work together with Red Shield to fight these fearsome monsters and unlock the secrets to the girl’s past.

Similarity – Both animes feature supernatural, school girls who use their blood to fight demon-like enemies as their main characters. Both are action oriented with a slight hint at romance. Blood+ has a more serious tone about it, whereas Kyoukai no Kanata has a lot more jokes. If you want something a little longer and little more serious, check out Blood+. If you want something quick and fun, watch Kyoukai no Kanata.

7. Strike the Blood

Synopsis – Kojou Akatsuki’s days as an ordinary high school student in the Demon District of Itogami Island come to an abrupt end after a fateful encounter leaves him with the remarkable abilities of a vampire.

It isn’t long before he is thrust into the center of attention when it is discovered that he is the fourth primogenitor, an immensely powerful vampire whom most consider to be merely a legend. Fearing Kojou’s destructive potential, the Lion King Organization sends in an apprentice sword-shaman, Yukina Himeragi, to monitor, and should he become a threat, kill the boy deemed the world’s most powerful vampire. Forced together by circumstance, the two form an unlikely alliance as Kojou comes to terms with his abilities and they both struggle to protect the city from various emerging chaotic forces.

Similarity – Both series are similar with a male and female protagonist involved with the supernatural which leads to many action scenes. The female leads are quite similar as they are always with their “sempai” (male protagonist), and believing they are perverts.

6. Blue Exorcist


Synopsis – Humans and demons are two sides of the same coin, as are Assiah and Gehenna, their respective worlds. The only way to travel between the realms is by the means of possession, like in ghost stories. However, Satan, the ruler of Gehenna, cannot find a suitable host to possess and therefore, remains imprisoned in his world. In a desperate attempt to conquer Assiah, he sends his son instead, intending for him to eventually grow into a vessel capable of possession by the demon king.

Ao no Exorcist follows Rin Okumura who appears to be an ordinary, somewhat troublesome teenager—that is until one day he is ambushed by demons. His world turns upside down when he discovers that he is in fact the very son of Satan and that his demon father wishes for him to return so they can conquer Assiah together. Not wanting to join the king of Gehenna, Rin decides to begin training to become an exorcist so that he can fight to defend Assiah alongside his brother Yukio.

Similarity – In Kyoukai no Kanata there are spirit hunters and spirits and in Ao no Exorcist there are similarly exorcists and demons. So they’re very similar when it comes to the exorcisms /battles. Kyoukai no Kanata’s kind of humour is also found in Ao no Exorcist, but in bigger doses, and they both contain the ”many characters all coming together to defeat their enemy and the relationships they have are also presented” element. If you enjoyed the plot and character development of Kyoukai no Kanata you’ll definitely adore Ao no Exorcist!

5. Hyouka


Synopsis – Hōtarō Oreki doesn’t like to do things that he considers a waste of energy. However, things start to change when he enters high school because even though he does not want to join any non-compulsory school activities, his older sister requested that he join the memberless Classic Literature Club so that it won’t get abolished. Unbeknownst to him, another student, Eru Chitanda, already planned to join; but instead of being free from club obligations, Hōtarō eventually joined as he is strangely unable to refuse or escape from Eru’s passionate gaze of curiosity. Together with his friends Satoshi and Mayaka, they began to discuss a variety of mysteries in school that only Hōtarō seems to be able to solve, including the mystery that lingered on from Eru’s childhood memory.

Similarity – If you liked Kyoukai no Kanata, you’ll definitely like Hyouka. Both are made by the same company, so it has the same look to it. Kyoukai no Kanata is almost exactly like Hyouka, except for the fantasy/supernatural that you find in Kyoukai no Kanata. Also while in Hyouka it has a bit of comedy/romance to it, Kyoukai no Kanata follows on that genre bit more, as well as some action. Both are good watches.

4. Bakemonogatari

Bakemonogatari
Synopsis – Koyomi Araragi, a third-year high school student, manages to survive a vampire attack with the help of Meme Oshino, a strange man residing in an abandoned building. Though being saved from vampirism and now a human again, several side effects such as superhuman healing abilities and enhanced vision still remain. Regardless, Araragi tries to live the life of a normal student, with the help of his friend and the class president, Tsubasa Hanekawa.

When fellow classmate Hitagi Senjougahara falls down the stairs and is caught by Araragi, the boy realizes that the girl is unnaturally weightless. Despite Senjougahara’s protests, Araragi insists he help her, deciding to enlist the aid of Oshino, the very man who had once helped him with his own predicament.

Through several tales involving demons and gods, Bakemonogatari follows Araragi as he attempts to help those who suffer from supernatural maladies.

Similarity – both show has the same genre, although bakemonogatari has more complex story plot, while KnK has simple, yet moe-esque story. both show have a superbly good art (as we expected from shaft and kyoani) and good op/ed too

3. Myriad Colors Phantom World


Synopsis – Phantoms: supernatural entities such as ghosts or youkai that, until recently, were thought to be superstition. However, when a virus that infects the brain spreads throughout society, people’s perception of the world changes as the mythical beings are revealed to have been living alongside humanity the entire time. This virus has also affected those of the next generation significantly, allowing them to develop special abilities that they can use to fight against dangerous phantoms.

Haruhiko Ichijou and Mai Kawakami are two of those that were granted such power as Haruhiko wields the ability to summon and seal phantoms through drawings while Mai imbues the power of the elements into martial arts. Together, along with the friendly phantom Ruru, they form Team E of Hosea Academy which is dedicated to dealing with these often mischievous beings. In a world where the real and surreal intertwine, Musaigen no Phantom World follows the adventures of a group of friends as they handle the everyday troubles caused by phantoms.

Similarity – Both are done by Kyoto Animation, and as such have amazing animation and art. Both follow the story of high school phantom hunters who fight youmu/phantoms to keep the peace and earn some compensation. Both are lighthearted and are a great watch, however KnK is more story based, where MnPW is more episodic comedy based.

2. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!

Synopsis – High school freshman Yūta Togashi was once a “chūnibyō patient” i.e. an overly self-conscious middle schooler. He wants to bury this embarrassing past and begins a new life in high school—unsuccessfully. His classmate Rikka Takanashi, a “current” chūnibyō patient, has found traces of residual symptoms on him and used the fact to force Togashi “making a contract” with her.

Similarity – The animation is beautifully done by KyoAni both times. We are introduced to two similar shy main female leads in both series, although they are quite different between each other on some specific focuses, just like the series themselves. In specific, that would be the fact that Chuunibyou tends to focus purely on the romantic comedy with a slight touch of harem, while Kyoukai no Kanata is a tad less intensive on that matter, but rather emphasizes the supernatural activity.

1. Noragami: Stray God

NoragamiSynopsis – Yato is a minor deity who lacks even a single shrine. In order to build his own shrine, he scrawls his cell number on the wall of a downtown bathroom telling people he will help them in exchange for a 5-yen offering, becoming a self-styled “delivery god.” Hiyori, the daughter of a respectable family, is almost killed in a traffic accident, but is rescued by Yato. This causes her to become a “hanyou,” a person who can easily lose her soul. She chases Yato down, and they begin to work together. Yato also finds a boy named Yukine who becomes a “sacred treasure” that can be used by a god. The three of them battle “you” who bring harm to humans as Yato’s hidden history is gradually revealed.

Similarity – Both series are about a ‘boundary’ between two realms/worlds, where evil spirits are coming into the real world. Both have protagonists that have superhuman powers (Yato and Mirai) that are funny characters who are hiding an important issue, and both have a ‘normal’ friend (Hiyori and Akihito) who try and lead them in the right direction, morally.
