THE IRREGULAR AT MAGIC HIGH SCHOOL
Grisaia and Irregular’s fruit, oh my god. What do I do first? Overused plot devices include the brash protagonist, a foolish harem, and comical villains. It hurts my body how similar they are. Aside from the fact that… Grisaia wins this round. Why? It’s a cinch to do. It’s because it’s brutally obvious to Grisaia what it is. It’s a harem show with a fantastic lead character who does fantastic things. Most of the stereotypes it establishes are broken by the designers, who are well aware of this. Irregular is a slap in the face to the audience’s wit. Meta-explanations and incest they pretend aren’t there distract you from the main point of the story. There was not a single character in this cast who added anything of value to the plot. NOTHING. The plot would have remained the same even if you had changed any of their characters or eliminated any of their backstory/existence.
The MCs in the Mahouka and Grisaia series are fiercely supported by equally impressive casts. In Mahouka, the supporting cast is underdeveloped, and the plot concentrates around the MC and the MH, whereas in Grisaia, the backstories of the characters are rich, and there is a great deal of action and drama. You’ll enjoy it if you’re a fan of good MCs, animation, sound effects, and more.
1. Angel Beats
When it came to the second half of the song, it was very reminiscent of Angel Beats. There is a lot of discussion in both shows about mortality and the way people act when they are facing their own demise. Characters in both shows have a strong sense of guilt after (they believe) harming a friend or a member of their family.
When compared to Angel Beats, which takes place in a place where everyone in the story has already died, Grisaia no Kajitsu explores what it’s like to survive a near-death experience. From the second half of Grisaia no Kajitsu to the two sequels, these issues are thoroughly examined.
Both MCs encounter a large number of girls who are struggling, and he offers his assistance in resolving their issues. MC is a vampire in Monogatari, and the girls are frequently possessed by spirits or aberrations throughout the series’ storylines (often caused trough past traumas etc). They all have mental health issues or have been traumatized by the MC in Grisaia. In addition to their possession, several of the girls in Monogatari have mental illnesses.
Monogatari, on the other hand, is a lot smarter and does things in a much more thoughtful manner. A lot of sarcasm and metaphor. Even though it can be overly serious at times, Grisaia is a lot of fun.
Both MCs have the courage to make their own decisions and are not frightened to do so. Action and ecchi are present in both series.
3. Classroom of the Elite
As much as I enjoyed Classroom of the Elite, it brought back vivid memories of my time spent watching Grisaia. All of the MCs and the majority of the supporting cast/harem are identical. Grisaia and Classroom of the Elite both have protagonists who aid a group of females with their problems, but Grisaia goes further in this vein than Classroom of the Elite. Parts of both tales veer towards absurdity. Their animation and acoustics are top-notch, but both feature excessive amounts of gratuitous fanservice.
Grisaia has more developed characters and a more intricate plot, but Classroom of the Elite does a better job of focusing on the school and the surroundings.
Aside from that, Classroom of the Elite pales in comparison to Grisaia’s maturity level.
You could always give the other a shot if you liked one.
4. Little Busters!
The lives of several students are chronicled in these two series. Bishoujo is the predominant visual style in both… That’s right, they have a harem-like aspect to them. They are most comparable, though, in that they have a tinge of intrigue rather than being just another boring slice of life. There is, however, an abundance of explicit fan service and violence in Grisaia, whereas Little Busters has none of these characteristics.
Through character development and interpersonal relationships, both of these anime maintain an aura of drama. They also have the sharp, clear art style that is common to many vn-based anime productions as well.
Grisaia no Kajitsu and Clannad redefine the term “harem” in their own works. Both films are heartwarming tales of high school love, with likable leads. A few episodes are devoted to each of the girls in the series. Both programs are tragic and effective tearjerkers.
6. Brynhildr in the Darkness
Two extremely comparable works can be created if the heroines in each series have a dark past and are fetishized totally. Both stories have an element of action, but in the end, neither one feels like an Elfen Lied clone that came out 10 years too late.
7. The World God Only Knows
One guy falls in love with numerous girls in both the Harem anime The World God Only Knows and in the manga Grisaia no Kajitsu. In the first two seasons of The World God Only Knows, there is an arc for each female the main protagonist meets, while the first season of Grisaia no Kajitsu is separated into multiple sections. The quality and quantity of character development in each of these anime made me fall in love with them. Throughout each of the two series’ arcs, the protagonist and the audience learn about the heroine’s personal struggles or a major event in her history, and the protagonist helps the heroine overcome the scars or handicaps that emerge from these events. Both anime have sequel seasons with narratives that diverge from the original, but retain many of the characters from the first season.
8. When They Cry
Both are based on visual novels and have a “moe, gore, and harem” vibe to them. Just like Higurashi would, the first episode of Grisaia no Kajitsu had this horrible atmosphere to it. I had reservations about watching the entire episode, but for some reason I did, and I’m glad I did. It’s not terrible, but it has this nagging feeling that it’s going to become worse in the next episode that I absolutely despise.
For those who like Higurashi, I’m sure you’ll get the same nostalgic sense from Grisaia.
Both stories revolve around a male protagonist who is the central figure in both stories’ casts of female characters. Each character has a distinct backstory that is revealed later in the anime. However, unlike the series “Grisaia,” “Rewrite” features a supernatural element.
Both shows have a similar stoic protagonist who is usually logical and rarely expresses emotion, despite their various genres. Since there is no context to explain their austere dispositions in both series, they are mystery characters Yuuji is portrayed in Grisaia no Meikyuu and Grisaia no Rakuen as a complex character, but we discover more about his past in these two volumes. The second season of Aldnoah Zero, on the other hand, never goes into detail about Inaho’s past.
11. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
In both anime’s synopses, it’s easy to see similarities. That’s because they’re both originals in their own fields. As you learn at the end of the first episode, Grisia is not your ordinary harem. Not all of the characters in Yahari are happy and hopeful. Both films contain gloomy undertones that are out of character for their respective genres. Because the primary characters in both anime have such wildly divergent personalities, no two encounters with them are ever the same.
12. AntiMagic Academy 35th Test Platoon
The following is a list of the most striking similarities between the two:
In both anime, the back stories of the characters are explored in great depth, making MC-kun a formidable opponent. On top of that, MC-kun ends himself falling for the girl he helped. There is a particular individuality to each of the female characters (never a dull moment). Fans will not be disappointed. Try the program out if you’re a fan of the older/younger sister having a crush on the younger brother. •Similar genres of music (romance, harem, ecchi, action, etc.).
Both are excellent in my opinion. I really encourage you to give anime a shot.
Harem girls have problems dealing with the outside world, and a mysterious stranger appears out of nowhere to help them.
14. Darker than Black
The main character has a lot of the same characteristics as the other characters (both are strong, cynical, cares for others from time-to-time, etc.). Both the main character and their sister are concerned about her well-being. •Both have a similar ambiance/feeling about them. •Both anime have a fair amount of episodes (each season has at least 20). I think both shows are excellent, but that’s just my view.
While Darker Than Black does not have any nudity, Grisaia No Kajitsu does. Contrary to Grisaia No Kajitsu, people in Darker Than Black have special abilities granted to them through agreements they’ve signed.
