10. Akame ga Kill!

Akame ga Kill
Synopsis – Night Raid is the covert assassination branch of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to overthrow Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has to lead him to take advantage of the child emperor’s inexperience. Without a strong and benevolent leader, the rest of the nation is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is far from commendable and that they will likely face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the revolution’s way.

This merry band of assassins’ newest member is Tatsumi, a naïve boy from a remote village who had embarked on a journey to help his impoverished hometown and was won over by not only Night Raid’s ideals, but also their resolve. Akame ga Kill! follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire and comes face-to-face with powerful weapons, enemy assassins, challenges to his own morals and values, and ultimately, what it truly means to be an assassin with a cause.

Similarity –ELITE GROUPS + WEAPONS: The “Goku uniform” in Kill la Kill and “imperial arms” in Akame ga Kill both plays a central role in the overall plot of the stories. Both animes have a high level of action, great humor, plot twists, and unique complex characters.

9. FLCL

Synopsis – Naota Nandaba is an ordinary sixth grader living in a city where nothing amazing ever seems to happen. After his brother Tasuku leaves town to play baseball in America, Naota takes it upon himself to look after everything Tasuku left behind—from his top bunk bed to his ex-girlfriend Mamimi Samejima, who hasn’t stopped clinging to Naota since Tasuku left.

Little does Naota know, however, that his mundane existence is on the verge of being changed forever: enter Haruko Haruhara, a Vespa-riding, bass guitar-wielding, pink-haired psychopath whose first encounter with Naota leaves him with tire tracks on his back and a giant horn on his head. Though all he wants is some peace and quiet, when Haruko takes up residence at his parents’ home, Naota finds himself dragged into the heart of the greatest battle for supremacy that Earth—and quite possibly the entire universe—has ever seen.

Similarity – Both series possess an explosive energy that will draw you in with their action, comedy, drama, and dialogues. By explosive standards, both shows go beyond logic and intensify themselves with their artwork and characters.
Both series’ main female protagonists also possess a high degree of energy that unleashes itself like a time-ticking bomb. Their artwork is also similar along with their stunning soundtracks.

8. Little Witch Academia (TV)

Little Witch AcademiaSynopsis- “A believing heart is your magic!”—these were the words that Atsuko “Akko” Kagari’s idol, the renowned witch Shiny Chariot, said to her during a magic performance years ago. Since then, Akko has lived by these words and aspired to be a witch just like Shiny Chariot, one that can make people smile. Hence, even her non-magical background does not stop her from enrolling in Luna Nova Magical Academy.

However, when an excited Akko finally sets off to her new school, the trip there is anything but smooth. After her perilous journey, she befriends the shy Lotte Yansson and the sarcastic Sucy Manbavaran. To her utmost delight, she also discovers Chariot’s wand, the Shiny Rod, which she takes as her own. Unfortunately, her time at Luna Nova will prove more challenging than Akko could ever believe. She absolutely refuses to stay inferior to the rest of her peers, especially to her self-proclaimed rival, the beautiful and gifted Diana Cavendish, so she relies on her determination to compensate for her reckless behavior and ineptitude in magic.

In a time when wizardry is on the decline, Little Witch Academia follows the magical escapades of Akko and her friends as they learn the true meaning of being a witch.

Similarity – Both by TRIGGER, storyboarded by Hiroyuki Imaishi and animated by You Yamashiro. Has striking similarities in animation, editing, as well as general art direction and both shares TRIGGER’s wit, quick cuts, and clever humor. Both involve an underdog story with a female lead centered in an academy specialized in the peculiar (school uniform ability enforcement and witchcraft/wizardry) in which the main villain/conflict becomes apparent starting the latter half of the season.

7. Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)Synopsis – Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki are regular middle school girls with regular lives, but all that changes when they encounter Kyuubey, a cat-like magical familiar, and Homura Akemi, the new transfer student.

Kyuubey offers them a proposition: he will grant any one of their wishes and in exchange, they will each become a magical girl, gaining enough power to fulfill their dreams. However, Homura Akemi, a magical girl herself, urges them not to accept the offer, stating that everything is not what it seems.

A story of hope, despair, and friendship, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica deals with the difficulties of being a magical girl and the price one has to pay to make a dream come true.

Similarity – similarity comes from the fact that both shows put their own twist on the “Mahou shoujo” genre. But while Madoka Magica explores this theme in a serious tone, Kill la Kill jumps around the comedy and parody territory, with some drama gems in between.
Both have very unique art styles.
The true main villains in both anime share a very similar goal and origin.
Both have really intricate stories with lots of plot twists.

6. Punch Line


Synopsis – After escaping a bus hijacking with the help of masked superhero Strange Juice, Yuuta Iridatsu finds his soul separated from his body and in the care of a perverse cat spirit, Chiranosuke. As a spirit, Yuuta wanders around his residence, the Korai House, aiming to regain his body and observe the other residents: Meika Daihatsu, a genius inventor; Mikatan Narugino, a cheerful idol; Ito Hikiotani, a shut-in NEET; and Rabura Chichibu, a spiritual medium. After catching a glimpse of Narugino’s undergarments, Chiranosuke reveals to Yuuta that he becomes exponentially stronger upon seeing panties. However, if he sees another pair while he is still a spirit, his power will cause an asteroid to crash into the earth, ending the world and killing his friends.

Punch Line follows Yuuta as he unravels the mysteries surrounding Korai House, its residents, and a villainous organization attempting to end the world. Will Yuuta be able to save everyone, or will the ever-present threat of panties result in their doom?

Similarity – Both shows have similar over-the-top comedy, weird superpowers, transformations, some sort of secret organizations and hidden relations between people. Kill la Kill had ecchi elements despite not being of the genre, but Punch Line is officially ecchi.

5. Kakegurui

Kakegurui
Synopsis –Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has the quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school.

Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou’s special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn’t play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table.

Similarity – OP female MC enters a new school and challenges the students, one by one, making her way up the student council; Kakegurui’s conflicts are based on gambling and mind games, whereas Kill la Kill’s conflicts are based on fighting and determination, and also outwitting the opponent.

4. Uchuu Patrol Luluco


Synopsis – Living an abnormal existence in Ogikubo, an intergalactic melting pot of humans and aliens as well as the only Space Immigration Zone on Earth, Luluco is a bubbly middle school girl who just wants to be normal. One morning, however, her father, who works at the Space Patrol, eats a volatile sleep capsule by mistake and is frozen solid! To make matters worse, Luluco accidentally breaks him, so she hurries off to his office for help. There, the chief of the Space Patrol, Over Justice, hires Luluco as a space temp worker for undercover investigations, so that the institution may crack down on crime within her school.

Made to don the Space Patrol suit and sent on her way to mete out justice, Luluco attempts to maintain the image of a normal girl who does not stand out in any way. But she soon discovers that with the automatic systems and inherently zealous judiciousness of the Space Patrol suit, continuing to be normal will be more difficult than she thought.

Similarity – Kill la Kill and Space Patrol Luluco are very high action and animated by studio Trigger. The main character of Kill La Kill (Mako) is high energy, carefree, and simple and the main character in Space Patrol Luluco is also carefree and strives to be as simple as possible. Each story takes place in a sci-fi school setting and pulls the viewer in with its unique art-style and diverse setting.

3. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt


Synopsis – The “Anarchy Sisters,” Panty and Stocking, have been kicked out of Heaven for, to put it mildly, misbehaving. Led by a priest named Garterbelt, these angels must buy their way back by exterminating ghosts in Daten City. But this task requires unconventional weapons for these unorthodox angels—they transform their lingerie into weapons to dispatch the spirits. Unfortunately, neither of them take their duties seriously, as they rather spend their time in pursuit of other “hobbies”: Panty prefers to sleep with anything that walks, and Stocking favors stuffing her face with sweets than hunting ghosts.

Follow these two unruly angels as they battle ghosts, an overflow of bodily fluids, and their own tendency to get side-tracked in Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt.

Similarity – They kinda have the same feel. The sequences are really fast. Both deal with “wrong” topics (such as dictatorship, death, fighting), but in a funny and careless way. The animation is great and singular. Both have a very particular, colourful, and enjoyable art. Lots of gags during each scene. Both have fanservice and sexy gags. Both are quite messed up, though Kill La Kill seems to have a plot, to begin with. Overall strange but somewhat epic. If you enjoyed P&S, you’ll love Kill La Kill.

2. Needless

Synopsis – At the onset of World War III, nobody could have predicted the effect it would have on Japan. While it had officially ended fifty years ago in 2150, its battles still persist. Large, mysterious areas known as “Blackspots” appeared across the country, filled with the contaminated ruins of cities and countrysides. Those insides were trapped to halt the spread of contamination, and their powers began to mutate—be they shapeshifters, pyromancers, or controllers of gravity itself—they all became known as the Needless.

Adam Blade is one such Needless, possessing remarkable regenerative abilities and incredible strength. In order to restore peace to a war-torn Japan, he and his allies must fight together to rise against a heinous research group by the name of Simeon.

Similarity – Both have over the top fighting scenes, post-apocalyptic universe, fanservice and hilarious characters.
The ‘villains’ are a group of four with a leader.
Kill la Kill has Imayoshi’s special touch in animation whereas Needless certainly influenced by Gainax but not as crazy as Kill la Kill

1. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Synopsis – Simon, and Kamina were born and raised in a deep, underground village, hidden from the fabled surface. Kamina is a free-spirited loose cannon bent on making a name for himself, while Simon is a timid young boy with no real aspirations. One day while excavating the earth, Simon stumbles upon a mysterious object that turns out to be the ignition key to an ancient artifact of war, which the duo dubs Lagann. Using their new weapon, Simon and Kamina fend off a surprise attack from the surface with the help of Yoko Littner, a hot-blooded redhead wielding a massive gun who wanders the world above.

In the aftermath of the battle, the sky is now in plain view, prompting Simon and Kamina to set off on a journey alongside Yoko to explore the wastelands of the surface. Soon, they join the fight against the “Beastmen,” humanoid creatures that terrorize the remnants of humanity in powerful robots called “Gunmen.” Although they face some challenges and setbacks, the trio bravely fights these new enemies alongside other survivors to reclaim the surface, while slowly unraveling a galaxy-sized mystery.

Similarity – Very similar art styles in just about way from the character designs to the action to the fanservice. The action is always as over-the-top and nonsensical as it can possibly be and (almost) no one in the show ever finds it the least bit strange. Similar mixes of comedy and drama (most of the comedy comes from the nonsensical parts). Strong people are extremely overpowered and keep getting stronger. Matoi is kind of a mix of Simon, Kamina, and Yoko all rolled into one girl.

Credits – MAL
