‘Charlotte’ is an anime about a high school student with superpowers. In my opinion, it’s one of the best animes ever done. The story revolves around a group of kids who have been gifted with extraordinary abilities. Yuu Otosaka, the show’s protagonist, is gifted with the power to peer into the thoughts of others. He’s clearly using his skills for his own benefit, and he’s able to get into a prestigious high school because of it. He and his sister Ayumi are forced to change schools after a girl called Nao Tomori discovers that he is abusing his skills. Nao is the head of the student council at this institution, and he aims to uncover and stop anyone with special abilities from abusing their skills for their own benefit. As a member of the council, Tomoya is now responsible for carrying out the council’s plan.
To what extent would one use their newfound abilities if they had them? Will they utilize it to further their own interests at the expense of others, or will they put others before themselves? As a result, we’ve compiled a list of the top anime that we think are the most similar to Charlotte. Hulu, Netflix and Crunchyroll all have some of these anime like ‘Charlotte’.
7. Amagi Brilliant Park (2014)
‘Charlotte’ and ‘Amagi Brilliant Park’ have a lot in common. For example, Seiya from ‘Amagi brilliant Park’ has a magical ability, yet the protagonist of both anime is arrogant. There is a limit to the abilities of both characters. While Yuu can only use his powers for 5 seconds at a time, Seiya can only use his powers on a single person at a time while they are in his line of sight. Both Yuu and Seiya have been enlisted in the service of the greater good by the organization. Invited to an amusement park by Isuzu Sento, Seiya Kanie accepts. Seiya believes that the lovely girl has invited him on a date, but this is not the case at all. As it stands, Princess Latifa and Sento are looking to hire Seiya as the park manager. He has a three-month window in which he must draw in approximately 500,000 visitors to the park. Not doing so could result in a greedy real-estate developer purchasing the park’s land. Seiya discovers that the park is inhabited by magical beings who take their energy from the joy of the people who use it. Seiya. Seiya must now put everything he has into saving the park. The 13-episode series is incredibly engaging and can easily be ‘binge-watched’.

The creator of ‘Charlotte’ is responsible for this anime’s inclusion on the list. Like ‘Charlotte,’ it features a supernatural plot line. Enjoyable and gripping throughout its run, “Angel Beats!” will have you hooked till the very end. Because so many people are involved in the story, it has a lot of entertainment value. Like ‘Charlotte,’ the series has a mix of drama, comedy and a high school atmosphere. Otonashi, the main character, has passed away and is now in the realm of the dead. For him, it’s just his first name that he can recall. Yuri, a girl who carries a rifle, is the first person he meets on his journey. The Shinda Sekai Force (abbreviated SSF) is an organization that protects the souls of those who die in battle. This group’s mission is to take on the Tenshi. Otonashi is skeptical of Tenshi’s assertions and tries to get in touch with her. However, things do not go as planned at his meeting, and he finds himself joining the SSF. In spite of this, he still finds himself drawn to Tenshi. The anime’s artwork is also pretty appealing.
5. Clannad (2007)
When it comes to deciding which anime to include on this list, Jun Maeda, the creator of both ‘Angel Beats!’ and ‘Charlotte,’ has a hand in it. Although the supernatural motif is not as prevalent in “Clannad” as it is in “Charlotte,” there is still a supernatural element to the story. A lot of drama is involved in this show, which also takes place in a school. If you own a PlayStation, I highly recommend checking out the visual novel that served as the inspiration for the anime.

He comes across a young lady one day who cries, “Anpan!” When Tomoya finds that the girl’s name is Nagisa Furukawa, she tries to stay motivated by reciting all of Nagisa’s favorite things. Despite Tomoya’s dismissiveness, Nagisa insists they are now buddies. Tomoya, on the other hand, is drawn to Nagisa over time and eventually becomes friends with her. He discovers that she has been unable to participate in the school’s theatrical club for a year because of a medical condition. In order to assist Nagisa, Tomoya and her four other friends join her. And who knows? He might end up realizing that life has more to offer than he originally imagined.
