In Amberground, the land of eternal twilight, Letter Bees and their dingos – creatures trained to protect them – deliver mail to the general populace. However, unlike normal mail carriers, their job is perilous as they must traverse the country while fighting off the giant armored insects known as Gaichuu. One day, a Letter Bee named Gauche collects his latest delivery: a young boy named Lag Seeing, whose mother was taken under mysterious circumstances to the capital of Akatsuki. As the pair travels together, they strike up a friendship, but when they finally reach their destination Lag and Gauche part ways. Now, several years later, Lag is about to take the exam to become a Letter Bee himself so that he can meet with Gauche again and find out what really happened to his mother all those years ago. But before any of that, he must find himself a dingo...
An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as "innocence". This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. Allen Walker is a young Exorcist who has the ability to tell who is human and who is an akuma with the help of his cursed eye. Together with the Black Order, Allen must find all 109 pieces of innocence to protect the world and defeat Earl.
Both are shounen animes, featuring a young, white haired boy, with very special right eye. While they are completely different character, they both decide to join an elite organisation, partially due to influence of their mentor (or teacher in D.Gray case).
In both animes enemies are some sort of weird and dengerous "machine like "creatures (at least at the beginning of the show). In both cases the only way to defeat them is by using the special power (amber in Letter Bee, innocence in D.Gray )
Though completely different in their narrative, both D.Gray-Man and Letter Bee have a very similar feel about them. Both share a similar sort of comedic content, though it is a lot more prevalent in D.Gray-man. If you enjoyed one, then you might want to check out the other.
In both series worlds exists an institution with Good guys and with the Bad ones.
The main characters are of course on the Good sides :). They are white haired boys with power inside their one eye, they both are looking for their precious friend/mentor which had dissappeared in the past and even maybe joined with the Bad ones.
When watching Letter Bee at first you can think that Allen (D.Gray Man) plays Gauche Suede – he is not! He is playing Lag Seeing :)
Both main characters share many traits. For example, both talk in a very polite way and have met someone in the past, who lead them on a specific way (Lag met Gauche, Allen met Mana or/and Cross). Also both have a left eye, which holds some kind of “special power”. Letter Bee as well as D.Gray-man tells a story about an organization and its members (still having a mc of course). Also the akuma and the gaichuu share some resemblances. Both can only be fight by the exorcists/letter bees and some kind of special weapon. Also both react to the hearts of people or/and their emotions.
The foundation of alchemy is based on the law of equivalent exchange; you cannot produce something from nothing. As such, alchemy is bound by one taboo - human transmutation. Four years ago two young brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, broke this taboo when they tried to resurrect their dead mother. During the process Al's body disintegrated and Ed lost his leg. In a desperate attempt to prevent his brother from disappearing completely, Ed sacrificed one of his arms so he could affix Al's soul to a suit of armor. When his missing limbs are replaced by auto mail parts, Ed bears the name of the Fullmetal Alchemist - the youngest ever State Alchemist and dog of the military. Now, alongside his brother, Ed uses his status within the military to attempt to find any way that he can return their bodies back to their original state.
Both are shounen shows with unique fantasy world setting. While they are very different, they also share many similarities. They both manage to skillfully mix adventure/comedy parts with more darker tunes. Both worlds are strictly controled and have a large gap between different "casts" ( militaristic regime and Ishbalan oppresion in FMA, 3 different standards of living and strict way of enforcing the status quo in Letter Bee).
Also in both shows main character joins an organisation, which is looked down upon as a "dogs of the government (State Alchemists in FMA and Letter Bees in Letter Bee).
While both shows have their unique stories, the overall mood and quality is similar - if you like one, you should also enjoy the other.
Both are Shounen, but Letter Bee is more pretty? and FMAB is more actiony... They are both bound to governent (dogs of the government) with a Fantasy feel.
Both present a nation with a strict government, though most of the government´s actions are either unknown, unnatural or suspicious.
On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.
Both series are about a young boy who has to try and understand a strange world. They both also have to deal with finding and protecting the people they care most about in the world. Both series feature fantasy action with drama and humor, and they are both visually stunning.
Both series have a kind of a mistic feel to them, and leave you with more questions than answers at the end. Also, both sceneries are placed in an imaginary, fictioned world, and characters are also very interesting and simmilar at some points. The story follows a young boy who is strugling to unravell the secrets of his past that have been bothering them for a long time, and both cases have to do with dissapearance of a parent. Along the way, the protagonists of both series meet friends and allies who help them along the way and are always there to support them, offering themselves and their lives to save one another. Two touching stories with a lot of heart in them which you're sure to enjoy all the way, and about which you will be thinking a long time after finishing.
Each of these series revolve around a great number of unknowns and two main characters fighting to get their jobs done. One of the characters in each case being a female familiar-esque fighter and the other being the male contractor of some sort.
There are some things that can only be said after death. Aided by a talking staff that thinks it is alive, Fumika delivers Shigofumi, the last words and feelings of the dead in the form of letters, to their addressees. Whether they are letters of apology, revenge, or simply a final farewell, she always brings them to their destination. Delivering Shigofumi is not always an easy job; as some people refuse to believe such things as letters from the dead are possible, while others are afraid of what these letters might contain. But the mail must go through; what the recipients decide to do with it afterwards is up to them.
Both Letter Bee and Shigofumi are about mil carriers with a difference. While one is set in a fictional world, and the other in modern day Japan, both place heavy focus on delivering heartfelt emotions to people who will be unable to see their loved ones for one reason or another. If you enjoyed this about one, then it's well worth trying the other.
Each of these series reolve around someone not in an "ordinary" circumstance delivering letters. Each series is centered mainly around younger kids and supernatural events.
Letter Bee and Shigofumi are both about mail carriers whose jobs are a little more unusual than just delivering everyday mail. Both shows focus on questions of right/wrong and what it means to be human.
Three years after an accident that nearly left him for dead, Tomoharu Natsume is about to start his high school life. Though with a ghost named Misao following him around, Tomoharu is far from being an average teenager. One day a strange woman appears and gives him a trunk that contains a tremendous power. This power is known as an Asura Machina - a being that draws its strength from a human sacrifice - and the sacrifice within Tomoharu's Asura is none other than Misao. As the bearer of such a power, Tomoharu immediately becomes the target of various groups, including the Divine Guards, who want his power for their own. When Tomoharu befriends a demon called Kanade and she is captured by the Divine Guards, he joins the Dark Society in order to save her. Now, Tomoharu will have to fight alongside the Dark Society while he tries to find a way to save Misao and bring her back to life.
Each series is centered mainly around younger kids and supernatural events. Also, each of the main character fight with their familiar. Finally, they each have a final episode that sets up a lot of the next series quite well.
Probably the biggest similarity between the two is that they both feature main characters who tend to rely on other characters in the series to help them out and get them out of trouble. Though when the time comes they can fight for themselves. Also at the end of each series they both create a nice setup to lead into the next season.
