Charlotte is one of those anime series that goes from zero to a hundred real fast. Following the tale of students with incredible powers, you can only imagine what kind of trouble everyone will get into. After all, how is the world supposed to know there are children out there with such immense power? But no matter what, you’ll never see the end coming; without giving spoilers for those who haven’t seen it, we’ll tell you that it’s quite the twist.

If you’re one of the fans that have already watched this show, you probably want something else that will fill your supernatural needs. Whether you’re looking for the blatant oddities in the world or for just exceptional high school students, these are some of the series you should definitely consider adding to your watchlist for a good binge-watching session!

  • The exiled prince, Lelouch vi Britannia, has one goal; to destroy the country that he once ruled over. After getting involved with a terrorist attack through unfortunate circumstances, he meets a girl named C.C. and makes a pact with her. She grants him the power of the Geass, also called the "Power of Kings". This newfound power will allow him to command anyone, even if it is against their own free will. With the obvious connection to the supernatural, especially the act of convincing people what to do, Code Geass is definitely a huge step up from Charlotte. The plot and writing are amazing, plus there are tons of episodes to binge watch!

    • Ryuu Yamada was hoping that he wouldn't have to revert to his old ways of being a delinquent, but after just transferring to a new school he finds himself bored. After an accidental kiss with the honor student, Urara Shiraishi, he finds out that he can switch bodies with her! This leads the student council officer and leader of the Supernatural Studies Club, Toranosuke Miyamura, to recruit them for their newfound power. While this anime is certainly more light-hearted than Charlotte, it's nature of being a group of super-powered students and strange occurrences makes it a great anime to cheer up with after such a serious show!

        Sakurada is no ordinary town; most of its population are born with supernatural abilities. One of the inhabitants of this town, Misora Haruki, has the ability to reset anything around her up to three days prior. No one around her, including herself, seems to know that she's reset except for Kei Asai; a boy with the ability of a photographic memory. By combining their powers, they're able to help a lot of people, even though it comes at a price when their tasks become more serious. This anime series is perhaps one of the closest to Charlotte's storyline; it holds a supernatural mystery and includes individual students getting involved with very heavy topics.

        • The Student Cultural Society was created when several students realized they didn't fit in with any other clubs. Banded together as misfits, the students find they'll be sharing more than just their personal space with each other. When Aoki and Yui suddenly switch bodies, more and more supernatural occurrences happen among the club members leading them to realize more and more personal secrets among the friends. If you want more of the strange phenomena and comradery we saw in Charlotte, you'll certainly like Kokoro's Connect
