    Default Similar Anime to Death Note?

    Hi, I have just finished watching Death Note!! WOW! What an amazing series! I always avoided it before because of how popular it was, I just assumed it would be bad, but it was brilliant absolutely brilliant!

    I now have a serious anime void!!! Can anyone recomend a series similar to Death Note, I loved the drama and the storyline. Thanks very much!!!

    Also is Honey and Clover very good?

    Go watch 'Monster', a show which is (in my opinion) greatly better than Death Note. It follows a doctor's pursuit of a young psycho which he once saved through a surgery. Just like DN, Monster has that dark and eerie feel all throughout combined with psychological, (a little) drama, and biblical elements.

    Let's not put Monster in the field with Deathnote. Monster was a literary masterpiece...Deathnote was a shounen manga.


    Try Onani Master Kurosawa. It's more-or-less a parody of Deathnote and Code Geass, though it's certainly "for mature audiences only". You also need a bit of a twisted sense of humor.

    I also recommended Code Geass,
    a friend and i did a paper over their similarities.
    I am too connected to you

    Days away I still feel you
    Touching me, changing me,

    Thus giving the OP the option to enjoy the said elements present in DN taken to a level of excellence that separates seinen (not saying that ALL of it are good) from shonen (not saying that all are bad), and the transcendental from the trendy.

    Code Geass sounds good but I don't like mechs either so maybe I'll watch an episode and see what its like. Monster sounds brilliant I've wanted to watch it for ages but I can't find it on DVD anywhere, searching just for "monster" seems to get a lot of results. Any help?

    DVDs aren't available just yet for Monster. Viz will release the first boxset (13 episodes) this December. If you're interested in the manga version, that is already available to purchase. However, the anime adaptation is pretty much perfect, no filler or slow pacing since it aired after the manga had already finished.

    Code Geass is excellent, and the main character is far more easy to "root for" compared to Light. He does do rather awful things in order to bring about peace, but he actually cares about his friends/comrades, and he doesn't have a messiah complex that would make him naive and easily corrupt. The mecha are definitely present, but there's so many other story elements present that it'd be silly to overlook the series just because they're there.

    I could recommend Hell Girl/Jigoku Shouju. Its not an in depth thing like Death \note but it has a few similarities. People type the name of someone who is causing them trouble in on a website and Hell Girl appears and offers to take them to Hell however the person who made the request will also go to Hell but not until they die. It might be something you would like if you enjoyed Death Note.

    I am not sure if they have the same story line...

    But I know they both talk about deaths xD and people deciding the death....

    Either monster, or if you don't mind a game: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance has a pretty good story where you play as the villain.
