How is Mandarin like Japanese, and which one is more useful to learn?

i prefer the japanese culture(anime etc) but it seems that many more people speak mandarin. but then again japan comes up with all the technology, so i dont know which language would be more useful to learn. Are they related? i dont like chinese culture that much, i dont feel they are as organized as the japanese, am i wrong? should i learn both? also, ive heard chinese ppl talk and it sounds more like they use vowels, and japanese use more consonants, which i like. please help
i guess the people have spoken, chinese is more useful. but i still like the way japanese sounds way more. i wish the chinese spoke japanese
