Fairy Gone is an exciting new anime from the Spring 2019 lineup. After a long and painful war, Fairy Soldiers - people who have received organ transplants that give them the ability to summon fairies to fight for them - no longer have a place in society. While some attempt to integrate, others turn to crime. That's where Dorothea, an organization staffed by people with the same ability, come in. In order to avoid being arrested for using their abilities illegally, the members of Dorothea seek out other Fairy Soldiers and bring them to justice.

Not only does Tokyo Ghoul have a dark vibe that aligns well with that in Fairy Gone, it also has a common theme - powers passed along through organs. In order to attain control over fairies, a person needs an organ transplant from an animal that was possessed by a fairy. In order for a human being to attain ghoulish abilities, they need an experience like Ken Kaneki's - an organ transplant from a ghoul's body. These transplants can not only grant superior powers, they can also cause the recipient's lives to plunge into chaos. Besides the organ thing, both shows feature excellent fight scenes.
Both Fairy Gone and The Ancient Magus' Bride open on an auction scene. In Fairy Gone, the auction is dedicated to selling fairies and other magical paraphernalia, whereas the auction in The Ancient Magus' Bride also sells people - namely, the protagonist, Chise Hatori. Both auctions lead to the a connection between two people from very different worlds. Where Mariya winds up joining a fairy-control organization called Dorothea, Chise ends up learning to control her own magical powers under the tutelage of a mage named Elias Ainsworth. As she studies under him, she'll meet plenty of magical creatures - including fairies!
After his entire village is destroyed in a vampire attack, Yuliy dedicates his life to bringing the monsters who took his family from him to justice. He does this by joining the Jaegers, a group of highly skilled guerilla warriors who get their jobs done by pretending to work alongside the police. What Yuliy doesn't know is that his brother wasn't savaged by vampires - he actually became one of them, forcing the two siblings into opposing sides of a great war.
This bears a striking resemblance to what happens in Fairy Gone. Along with her best friend Veronica, Mariya is one of the sole survivors of an attack on the Suna village. She spends years attempting to find her friend - but when she does, she discovers that they may not be on the same side of a conflict
Fairy Gone plays with the idea of different species mingling together to create something more powerful than either on its own - and so does Parasyte: The Maxim. In Fairy Gone, fairies possess animals, and the organs of those animals are transplanted into humans, allowing them to wield fairies as summoned weapons. In Parasyte: The Maxim, sentient parasites burrow into human brains and turn their bodies into powerful fighting machines. In both cases, these hybrid creatures pose a serious threat toward humanity as a whole - and must somehow be controlled.
