10. Durarara!!


Synopsis – In Tokyo’s downtown district of Ikebukuro, amidst many strange rumors and warnings of anonymous gangs and dangerous occupants, one urban legend stands out above the rest—the existence of a headless “Black Rider” who is said to be seen driving a jet-black motorcycle through the city streets.

Mikado Ryuugamine has always longed for the excitement of the city life, and an invitation from a childhood friend convinces him to move to Tokyo. Witnessing the Black Rider on his first day in the city, his wishes already seem to have been granted. But as supernatural events begin to occur, ordinary citizens like himself, along with Ikebukuro’s most colorful inhabitants, are mixed up in the commotion breaking out in their city.

Similarity –We find conflicts between different gangs.
In addition, there are characters with supernatural powers (Celty, Anri, and Mob, Teruki) with normal characters without supernatural abilities (Reigen and Mikado).
Durarara!! is, however, more serious and mature than Mob Psycho 100 is more focused on comedy.

9. Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited – Hyoubu Kyousuke

Synopsis –Kyousuke Hyoubu, an ESPer who was betrayed many years ago, is now one of the most powerful ESPers—and also a fugitive. However, behind that glare lies a kind heart. His main mission is to save ESPers who are mistreated by humans, even if that be by force. Through his methods, he has saved many ESPer lives and gained the loyalty of those he has saved. The name of his group: P.A.N.D.R.A.

Similarity – Both have espers who are extremely powerful. One is about ghosts and they both show how people aren’t comfortable with esper powers.

8. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Synopsis- In the dawn of the 21st century, magic, long thought to be folklore and fairy tales, has become a systematized technology and is taught as a technical skill. In First High School, the institution for magicians, students are segregated into two groups based on their entrance exam scores: “Blooms,” those who receive high scores, are assigned to the First Course, while “Weeds” are reserve students assigned to the Second Course.

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows the siblings, Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who are enrolled in First High School. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Though his practical test scores and status as a “Weed” show him to be magically inept, he possesses the extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magic techniques—making Tatsuya the irregular at a magical high school.

Similarity – If you want to see the main character as an all powerful protagonist hero. I’ll gladly recommend “Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei”. In both anime, the main protagonist is the strongest yet no one recognized it first. And you can find similarity both in psychic and magical power. Hope you can enjoy both.

7. Bungou Stray Dogs

Synopsis – For weeks, Atsushi Nakajima’s orphanage has been plagued by a mystical tiger that only he seems to be aware of. Suspected to be behind the strange incidents, the 18-year-old is abruptly kicked out of the orphanage and left hungry, homeless, and wandering through the city.

While starving on a riverbank, Atsushi saves a rather eccentric man named Osamu Dazai from drowning. Whimsical suicide enthusiast and supernatural detective, Dazai has been investigating the same tiger that has been terrorizing the boy. Together with Dazai’s partner Doppo Kunikida, they solve the mystery, but its resolution leaves Atsushi in a tight spot. As various odd events take place, Atsushi is coerced into joining their firm of supernatural investigators, taking on unusual cases the police cannot handle, alongside his numerous enigmatic co-workers.

Similarity – Both Bungou Stray Dogs and Mob Psycho 100 focus on characters who face challenges because of their powers and the effects that they have on people. These characters grow and develop over time with the help of those around them, and, of course, there is some action sprinkled in over the way. Mob Psycho 100 has a bit more comedy, and the art styles differ quite a bit, but overall I think this would be something to watch next.

6. Ao no 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 – They both have the similar brotherhood theme.
-Rin & Shigeo/Mob have the massive power inside their body (Rin has satanic power/Shigeo has psychic power). They have to learn to control their power. They always there to protect their younger brother.
-Yukio & Ritsu didn’t have that power but they can do many things better than their older brother. Despite that, they always have the strange feelings towards their older brother because they think they were ‘nothing’ compared to them…

5. Devilman: Crybaby

Synopsis –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 – There are two defining traits that come to mind when comparing these series. The first and probably most obvious is the supernatural theme. Both Devilman and Mob Psycho feature battles against supernatural forces, often delving into Lovecraftian-levels of horror.

The second common trait is the use of unique art styles to create equally-unique character animation. The animators were not afraid to go off-model when creating scenes in both Devilman and Mob Psycho, showcasing warped and squished faces and bodies to excellent effect. The use of sakuga is also prevalent throughout both series.

So if you like supernatural horror-action pieces that showcase unique animation styles, you can’t go wrong with either. Also, as a final note, they are both regarded as one of the best anime to come out in their respective year. Devilman is WAAAYY more mature than Mob in terms of content, but the similarities exist nonetheless.

4. Kekkai Sensen

Synopsis – Supersonic monkeys, vampires, talking fishmen, and all sorts of different supernatural monsters living alongside humans—this has been part of daily life in Hellsalem’s Lot, formerly known as New York City, for some time now. When a gateway between Earth and the Beyond opened three years ago, New Yorkers and creatures from the other dimension alike were trapped in an impenetrable bubble and were forced to live together. Libra is a secret organization composed of eccentrics and superhumans, tasked with keeping order in the city and making sure that chaos doesn’t spread to the rest of the world.

Pursuing photography as a hobby, Leonardo Watch is living a normal life with his parents and sister. But when he obtains the “All-seeing Eyes of the Gods” at the expense of his sister’s eyesight, he goes to Hellsalem’s Lot in order to help her by finding answers about the mysterious powers he received. He soon runs into Libra, and when Leo unexpectedly joins their ranks, he gets more than what he bargained for. Kekkai Sensen follows Leo’s misadventures in the strangest place on Earth with his equally strange comrades—as the ordinary boy unwittingly sees his life take a turn for the extraordinary.

Similarity – Both Kekkai Sensen and Mob psycho feature an insecure boy trying to figure out life and their powers.

Both protagonists have passive personalities.

Both have a totally different visual style but feature unique animation.

3. Boku no Hero Academia

Boku no Hero Academia (My Hero Academia)
Synopsis – The appearance of “quirks,” newly discovered super powers, has been steadily increasing over the years, with 80 percent of humanity possessing various abilities from manipulation of elements to shapeshifting. This leaves the remainder of the world completely powerless, and Izuku Midoriya is one such individual.

Since he was a child, the ambitious middle schooler has wanted nothing more than to be a hero. Izuku’s unfair fate leaves him admiring heroes and taking notes on them whenever he can. But it seems that his persistence has borne some fruit: Izuku meets the number one hero and his personal idol, All Might. All Might’s quirk is a unique ability that can be inherited, and he has chosen Izuku to be his successor!

Enduring many months of grueling training, Izuku enrolls in UA High, a prestigious high school famous for its excellent hero training program, and this year’s freshmen look especially promising. With his bizarre but talented classmates and the looming threat of a villainous organization, Izuku will soon learn what it really means to be a hero.

Similarity – Both are animated by Bones and are very fluent, consistent and overall stylish with animation. Both have pretty rad supernatural elements (MP100 with psychic type powers and BnH focuses on a variety of superhero powers) Both use uncommon shots, camera angles and funky perspectives for fight scenes. Both have a unique style that you won’t find in many other shows.
Boku no Hero Academia is less comedy based than Mob Psycho 100 and Mob Psycho 100 has more of a psychedelic vibe, especially with its opening. Boku no Hero Academia has more characters and a slightly more polished style than Mob Psycho 100.
If you enjoyed the animation and artistic innovation of one series, you will probably enjoy the other

2. Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan (TV)

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ nanSynopsis – To the average person, psychic abilities might seem a blessing; for Kusuo Saiki, however, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Gifted with a wide assortment of supernatural abilities ranging from telepathy to x-ray vision, he finds this so-called blessing to be nothing but a curse. As all the inconveniences his powers cause constantly pile up, all Kusuo aims for is an ordinary, hassle-free life—a life where ignorance is bliss.

Unfortunately, the life of a psychic is far from quiet. Though Kusuo tries to stay out of the spotlight by keeping his powers a secret from his classmates, he ends up inadvertently attracting the attention of many odd characters, such as the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the delusional Shun Kaidou. Forced to deal with the craziness of the people around him, Kusuo comes to learn that the ordinary life he has been striving for is a lot more difficult to achieve than expected.

Similarity – The protagonists of these series have overpowered psychic abilities, so much that no one stands a chance against them. They actually have to restrain themselves so that no one else gets hurt. A big difference is that, in case of Mob Psycho, Shigeo is portrayed as a character who is as simple as he can be, so everyone at first glance won’t pay any attention to him. On the other hand, Saiki from Saiki Kusuo tries his best to avoid any type of attention and realizes no matter what he does he is going to be at the center of every little and big events around him.

These series have some of the top comedic elements, and they were used in the best possible way.

1. One Punch Man

Synopsis – The seemingly ordinary and unimpressive Saitama has a rather unique hobby: being a hero. In order to pursue his childhood dream, he trained relentlessly for three years—and lost all of his hair in the process. Now, Saitama is incredibly powerful, so much so that no enemy is able to defeat him in battle. In fact, all it takes to defeat evildoers with just one punch has led to an unexpected problem—he is no longer able to enjoy the thrill of battling and has become quite bored.

This all changes with the arrival of Genos, a 19-year-old cyborg, who wishes to be Saitama’s disciple after seeing what he is capable of. Genos proposes that the two join the Hero Association in order to become certified heroes that will be recognized for their positive contributions to society, and Saitama, shocked that no one knows who he is, quickly agrees. And thus begins the story of One Punch Man, an action-comedy that follows an eccentric individual who longs to fight strong enemies that can hopefully give him the excitement he once felt and just maybe, he’ll become popular in the process.

Similarity – When I saw the first episode of this show, there was only one thing going through my mind: One Punch Man. Why? Simple, the main character of Mob Psycho 100, Kageyama, is like a mini Saitama from One Punch Man. Here are some things the two main characters have in common:
– They are always bored
– They are overpowered
– They are both very calm most of the time
– Their faces… I’m serious.
– They have a sidekick… Completely useless… But they are still sidekicks… Right?

The characters are always fighting monsters in an original and funny way, which is something they have also have in common.
