Synopsis:

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

I believe that these two anime haven't been linked before because of the difficulty of staying oblique. Suffice to say, Gankutsuou and Kuroshitsuji are exquisite tales of revenge, hope, hatred and love, with high production values and opulent Old World settings. While Gankutsuou has a more modern edge, a few episodes in, the presence of futuristic technology stops looking strange or gimmicky, and simply becomes a quirk of the artstyle, and, at best, an accessory to moving the story well, which at times even improving slightly upon the original novel. Meanwhile, Kuroshitsuji has slight modern twists from time to time, such as televisions in the time of Queen Victoria - emphasising that this is also an alternate version of the past. While Kuroshitsuji occasionally seems to pander subtly to its intended female audience, it stays mostly classy, whereas Gankutsuou is a little more art pour l'art - often literally. However, both use strong storytelling to create a uniquely dark, rich atmosphere that can't be found in other works.

There are other, deeper connections between the two shows, but why would I spoil such wonderful surprises? Gankutsuou fans, don't be afraid to try something mainstream. Kuroshitsuji fans, don't be afraid of something so odd-looking. You'll both be rewarded.

Dark magic. Supernatural creatures. Mysterious happenings. Three elements that are woven throughout the plot of both of these shows. If you enjoyed watching the revealing of sinister motives as each mystery unravelled in one show, you will want to check out the other.

Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?

Both of these anime have young boys who make older men do their bidding, and in most cases fight battles for them. The older men would "do anything" for their "master" for various reasons.

If you like children who have the dominant hand in an adult-child relationship then I can definitely see someone liking both of these.

Loki Ragnorak is very similar to Shitsuji because it deals with supernatural elements. Loki is a Norse God condemned to earth for angering Odin and in order for Loki to regain his place next to Odin Loki has to catch evil and what other way to do this then by collecting evil energy. Also similar Kuro Shitsuji both animes have butlers who both have supernatural powers and deal with homes very similar to each other Loki living in a mansion and the toy maker living in a mansion/castle. Both animes also are very victorian.

Both Kuroshitsuji and Rozen Maiden are fantasy series with a distinctly elegant feel.

Furthermore, both have the main characters in a master/servant relationship.

If you like one you should try out the other.
