Texhnolyze
Synopsis – Texhnolyze takes place in the city of Lux, a man-made underground city that has crumbled after years of neglect and lack of repairs. Citizens of Lux have come to refer to their home as simply “The City” and treat it as though it has a mind and will of its own. Three major factions battle to control Lux: Organo, a group of “professionals” who collaborate with the criminal underworld that controls Texhnolyze (prosthetics), the Salvation Union, a populist group that seeks to disrupt Organo’s business, and Racan, a collection of young individuals with Texhnolyzes that use their abilities for personal gain.

Similarity – Ichiro was having difficulties in life which he has a family that always neglect him. Unlike hiro. He always fond of people around him. Which make him look cooler however he uses his ability to kill people that he aiming. Different from Ichiro he using his ability to help people.

9. Kurozuka

Kurozuka

Synopsis – The original novel is about a 12th-century man named Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Kurou). Kurou flees into the mountains after losing to his brother Minamoto no Yoritomo, the first Shogun to rule all of Japan. History records that he committed suicide, but instead, Kurou meets a strange, beautiful woman named Kuromitsu in her mountain hermitage. Eventually, Kurou falls in love with Kuromitsu, but then realizes she conceals a dark secret. He learns that he is unable to die and continues to live for a thousand years as Japan evolves into a future society.

Similarity – These two anime may look different, but they do have a similar tone to them. They both have a dark and gloomy tone with the main character in both of these anime trying to fight for the greater good. These two anime have amazing intro songs as well. Not to mention these two anime are very violent and can be disturbing at times.

8. ReLIFE

ReLIFESynopsis – Dismissed as a hopeless loser by those around him, 27-year-old Arata Kaizaki bounces around from one job to another after quitting his first company. His unremarkable existence takes a sharp turn when he meets Ryou Yoake, a member of the ReLife Research Institute, who offers Arata the opportunity to change his life for the better with the help of a mysterious pill. Taking it without a second thought, Arata awakens the next day to find that his appearance has reverted to that of a 17-year-old.

Arata soon learns that he is now the subject of a unique experiment and must attend high school as a transfer student for one year. Though he initially believes it will be a cinch due to his superior life experience, Arata is proven horribly wrong on his first day: he flunks all his tests, is completely out of shape, and can’t keep up with the new school policies that have cropped up in the last 10 years. Furthermore, Ryou has been assigned to observe him, bringing Arata endless annoyance. ReLIFE follows Arata’s struggle to adjust to his hectic new lifestyle and avoid repeating his past mistakes, all while slowly discovering more about his fellow classmates.

Similarity – Both involves characters whom were having a shitty life, until they got some sort of second chance opportunity that has changed their lives completely, but they both have some difference where one voluntarily becomes a live tester for a fountain of youth drug while the other is an old man who has obtained by accident an array of weapons and tech that would make him Cyborg’s grandpa.

7. Devilman: Crybaby

Devilman CrybabySynopsis – Devils cannot take form without a living host. However, if the will of an individual is strong enough, they can overcome the demon and make its power their own, becoming a Devilman.

Weak and unassuming, Akira Fudou has always had a bleeding heart. So when his childhood friend Ryou Asuka asks for his help in uncovering devils, Akira accepts without hesitation. However, to Akira’s surprise, the place they go to is Sabbath: an immoral party of debauchery and degeneracy. Amidst bloodshed and death, demons possess the partiers, turning their bodies into grotesque monsters, and begin wreaking havoc. In a reckless attempt to save his best friend, Akira unwittingly merges with the devil Amon and becomes a Devilman, gaining the power to defeat the remaining demons.

Though it grants him great power, this new partnership awakens an insatiable and primeval part of Akira. Having the body of a devil but the same crybaby heart, Akira works alongside Ryou, destroying those that harm humanity and his loved ones.

Similarity – First, getting obvious out of the way: both Devilman and Inuyashiki are adaptations of manga featuring characters that early-on are changed into beings with superhuman abilities. Then these characters use their new-found abilities to save people, all the while trying to prove they have maintained a semblance of their humanity. Later on, the hero faces off against the villain who is their polar opposite.

6. Ajin: Demi-Human

Ajin Demi Human
Synopsis – Mysterious immortal humans known as “Ajin” first appeared 17 years ago in Africa. Upon their discovery, they were labeled as a threat to mankind, as they might use their powers for evil and were incapable of being destroyed. Since then, whenever an Ajin is found within society, they are to be arrested and taken into custody immediately.

Studying hard to become a doctor, Kei Nagai is a high schooler who knows very little about Ajin, only having seen them appear in the news every now and then. Students are taught that these creatures are not considered to be human, but Kei doesn’t pay much attention in class. As a result, his perilously little grasp on this subject proves to be completely irrelevant when he survives an accident that was supposed to claim his life, signaling his rebirth as an Ajin and the start of his days of torment. However, as he finds himself alone on the run from the entire world, Kei soon realizes that more of his species may be a lot closer than he thinks.

Similarity – When one person is caught between a mysterious government agency and terrorists, it’s hard to expect any joy in life. The more subtle similarities deal with the action and the character relationships. In both, action scenes are characterized with brutal hits and pretty free-flowing CG. However, the intensity of bloodshed isn’t too high in either. There is a little more in Inuyashiki, but so far it is not gratuitous. Then there’s the way that Kei approaches Satou and tries to reign him in. This seems to be the route that Inuyashiki and Hiro are taking

5. Death Note

Death NoteSynopsis – A shinigami, as a god of death, can kill any person—provided they see their victim’s face and write their victim’s name in a notebook called a Death Note. One day, Ryuk, bored by the shinigami lifestyle and interested in seeing how a human would use a Death Note, drops one into the human realm.

High school student and prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon the Death Note and—since he deplores the state of the world—tests the deadly notebook by writing a criminal’s name in it. When the criminal dies immediately following his experiment with the Death Note, Light is greatly surprised and quickly recognizes how devastating the power that has fallen into his hands could be.

With this divine capability, Light decides to extinguish all criminals in order to build a new world where crime does not exist and people worship him as a god. Police, however, quickly discover that a serial killer is targeting criminals and, consequently, try to apprehend the culprit. To do this, the Japanese investigators count on the assistance of the best detective in the world: a young and eccentric man known only by the name of L.

Similarity – A battle of wits between two unorthodox character tropes that somehow resemble each other. One young teenager with deadly powers, no mercy, and delusions of grandeur against a quirky, out of shape-y but the extremely wise opponent put in a thriller set in a modern world with the addition of some kind of supernatural powers and trinkets.

4. Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo GhoulSynopsis – Based on the best-selling supernatural horror manga by Sui Ishida, Tokyo Ghoul follows Ken Kaneki, a shy, bookish college student, who is instantly drawn to Rize Kamishiro, an avid reader like himself. However, Rize is not exactly who she seems, and this unfortunate meeting pushes Kaneki into the dark depths of the ghouls’ inhuman world. In a twist of fate, Kaneki is saved by the enigmatic waitress Touka Kirishima, and thus begins his new, secret life as a half-ghoul/half-human who must find a way to integrate into both societies.

Similarity – Both belong in the Seinen genre.
Darker theme and atmosphere intended for mature audience.
Both contain gore and violence.
Psychological drama.

3. Gantz

Gantz
Synopsis – Thought your life was bad? Sometimes, death is worse. There is no salvation, peace, nor god waiting to receive you into their care. But wait, a god? Maybe you are talking about that big black ball stuck in the room with you. Now you are thrown into a game, fighting green aliens and robot monsters for the chance to survive.

When Kei Kurono is killed, he thus finds himself caught in such a game—a test of his skills, morals, and will to survive. His life is not his own; his death is spat and trampled upon over and over again. What happens if he does not listen? God knows.

Similarity – These two anime are based on a manga from Hiroya Oku. You have characters in both of these anime that are affected by advanced alien technology. They also have a similar dark and disturbing feel to them seeing how they are both filled with violence, blood, and gore.

2. Zankyou no Terror (Terror in Resonance)

Zankyou no TerrorSynopsis – Painted in red, the word “VON” is all that is left behind after a terrorist attack on a nuclear facility in Japan. The government is shattered by their inability to act, and the police are left frantically searching for ways to crack down the perpetrators. The public is clueless—until, six months later, a strange video makes its way onto the internet. In it, two teenage boys who identify themselves only as “Sphinx” directly challenge the police, threatening to cause destruction and mayhem across Tokyo. Unable to stop the mass panic quickly spreading through the city and desperate for any leads in their investigation, the police struggle to act effectively against these terrorists, with Detective Kenjirou Shibazaki caught in the middle of it all.

Similarity – Both series are mature in tone and tackle morality, terrorism, and what it means to be human. They are set in modern Japan and feature more realistic styles of animation, but they also have a slight sci-fi element: in Inuyashiki, humans gain robotic abilities through an unexplained alien encounter, and in Zankyou no Terror, children are experimented on to make them genius savants. Both series have some very dramatic and emotional moments, too!

1. Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu (Parasyte -the maxim)

Kiseijuu Sei no Kakuritsu (Parasyte -the maxim)Synopsis – All of a sudden, they arrived: parasitic aliens that descended upon Earth and quickly infiltrated humanity by burrowing into the brains of vulnerable targets. These insatiable beings acquire full control of their host and are able to morph into a variety of forms in order to feed on unsuspecting prey.

Sixteen-year-old high school student Shinichi Izumi falls victim to one of these parasites, but it fails to take over his brain, ending up in his right hand instead. Unable to relocate, the parasite, now named Migi, has no choice but to rely on Shinichi in order to stay alive. Thus, the pair is forced into an uneasy coexistence and must defend themselves from hostile parasites that hope to eradicate this new threat to their species.

Similarity – These shows have characters with unique powers. The experience is fresh and not something is seen before in other anime. The story is quite dark, innocent people die and the story is mature and realistic. And the best of all is that you always want to see the next episode. Sometimes there is so much tension that I have to stop myself from reading the manga to find out what happens.
