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.

Both anime are detective stories and have a kind of fantasy. They have a lot of misteries and they'rre very fascinating. And all the characters are very interesting.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

I know many people might be surprised by me saying that Kuroshitsuji and MoHS are similar. But I'm not crazy because they really are. In Kuroshitsuji it defies cliches and is serious and funny and so many things all wrapped into one. This is also true for MoHS.

Also, the characters Sebastian and Haruhi are similar in the way that they can pull off basically anything at all. And sometimes when they do it's just absolutely hilarious.

Like the time in Kuroshitsuji episode one when Seb had to do all the work cuz everyone else at the mansion is incompetent. XD and then how Haruhi blackmailed the computer club.

Both characters have no problem using blackmail to get what they want(or in Seb's case follow orders) and they also have a general disdain for useless people(with some difference in opinion of who counts as useless of course)

Trinity Blood

Dark, Supernatural, Bishounen (like Kuroshitsuji). Refreshing take on Vampires.  A lot of action and great character development.  Too bad the author of the manga died.

I recommend both of these for each other simple for their art styles. The art styles are so similar it looks like it could have been drawn by the same person.

I noramlly pick and anime/manga based on the art first then the storyline.

Masato Hijirikawa from Uta no Prince looks kinda like an older Ceil.

And Syo Kurusu looks like Finnian.

The two stories are completely different, but I love them both! And the art is amazing!

Zombie-Loan

Zombie-Loan

Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...

Firstly, both were produced by Square Enix.Both have eye-patches, Shinigami, contracts, death, and a dark mood.But the most notable similarities are those between the characters: in both series we have the usually clumsy meganekko (Michiru/Meilin), the gay man who provides some comedy (Hakka/Grell), the always calm and kinda tedious Chinese guy whose eyes are constantly shut (Toho/Lau), the emotionless pretty girl (Kuze/Ranmao), the weird and non-human ferryman/grave-digger (Bekko/Undertaker), the cute and cheerful shota boy (Yuta/Finnian), and even the domesticated wolf (Raika/Pluto).
