The thing that makes these anime so fun to watch is the powers these characters possess and all the conditions that come along with those powers.

This is a great way to welcome many anime viewers to a bunch of new types of stories about the supernatural and the types of realities we can only dream of living in.

Let’s not waste any more time, let’s jump right into these anime and hopefully you will find some great recommendations.

Similar Anime to Seikon no Qwaser (The Qwaser of Stigmata)

Similar Anime to Seikon no Qwaser / Similar Anime to The Qwaser of Stigmata

1. High School of the Dead

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 5, 2010 – September 20, 2010

The story revolves around Takashi Komuro and his fellow students. The main cast consists of a few high school students who quickly form a small group to fight back against the mysterious decease which causes the dead to rise again. How will these young kids survive such a terrible zombie outbreak?

Both anime have a lot in common. The main characters of both anime are quite the same when it comes to personality. Other similarities include the ecchi themes, the action and the art style which both anime use. The only difference might be that High School of the Dead is more realistic in the sense that the story takes place in a normal time like ours – minus the zombie outbreak of course.


2. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

  • Episodes: 64
  • Aired: April 5, 2009 - July 4, 2010

This is a world in which alchemists exist – people who use and study the art of alcemical transmutation. The main protagonist, Edward Elric, is a famous alchemist, who got the nickname of ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’. He got the nickname from his metal limbs which he needed after sacrificing them when he almost lost his little brother in an alchemy accident. Throuh this, his brother’s soul was saved, but not his body. The brothers are now on a quest for the philosopher’s stone, which is the only way they can regain what they lost.

Seikon no Qwaser is actually like a gothic version of Fullmetal Alchemist. The similarities lie in the unique ways they activate their powers in each anime. In FMA, the focus is on transmutation circles which allow matter to change forms, while in Seikon no Qwaser, the characters get their powers from drinking milk. In addition, the characters in both anime also have supernatural powers which they use to manipulate elements and other source materials. In short, Seikon no Qwaser is a more adult version of Fullmetal Alchemist because of the ecchi theme. Definitely worth the watch.


3. D.Gray-man

  • Episodes: 103
  • Aired: October 3, 2006 – September 30, 2008

At the end of the 19th century, Allen Walker and the organization of Exorcists he recently joined are tasked with destroying the creatures called Akuma. Allen has a cursed eye and an anti-Akuma weapon as an arm. With this power, Allen and the Exorcists must do all they can to save the world.

These anime are similar because of the dark atmosphere they both share. As well, they share themes of action, supernatural events and super powers. The main characters even mirror each other too: a lovable, white-haired boy with a red scar which goes through his left eye. They also have similar painful and sad pasts. Additionally, neither anime strays too far from their manga origins.

He later learns that she is his fallen angel – the vicious kind. One would think this is the end, but he is reincarnated as a devil by his most beautiful senpai.

5. Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi (Queen’s Blade: The Exiled Virgin)

The reward for the savior is a prison cell. But when the woman they saved wants to become stronger and better herself, then everything changes.

The two anime are alike by the fact that both have dominant female characters who also have supernatural powers and skills in combat. Both anime include a lot of ecchi moments and aren’t ashamed to do so. At some point in both series, such ecchi is even passed as being a source of power.

6. Freezing

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: January 8, 2011 - April 7, 2011

These girls fight against the aliens, and their male partners are called Limiters, who have the special power ‘’Freezing’’ which limits their opponent’s movements.

Both Freezing and Seikon no Qwaser have a similar kind of atmosphere. They are both action-based, filled with ecchi, drama, romance and fighting scenes. Both anime happen to portray girls with large boobs and these girls throughout the anime develop feelings for the main protagonist. The only difference is that Freezing focuses more on a science-fiction theme while Seikon no Qwaser focuses on the supernatural.
