At first glance, Nabari no Ou and Loveless do not seem to have much in common but the way the characters develop is similar. In both we have a young male protagonist who starts out as being utterly indifferent to life and those around him, only to learn through trials how to connect with others and gain a purpose. The supernatural element and overall mysterious allure of one is also present in other. The plot convention of secret societies is explored in both anime but perhaps what really makes these two anime akin is the interaction between the lead and a character whose motives are somewhat dubious, in Nabari's case Yoite and in Loveless' case Soubi.

There are many similarities between the two main characters in both of these series. A younger, indifferent character and an older, broken character partner up in both of these series in order to achieve their ends.

Also both have shounen-ai, (though it is implicated rather than official in NnO), and both are fantasies set in the modern day.

Nabari no ou and Loveless has not a very similar story plot to each other. The thing that makes them very similar is the main characters point of view at live and how they suddenly start to enjoy life after meeting someone "special".

Miharu and Yoite in Nabari no Ou does not have a same sort of relasionship like Ritsuka and Soubi in loveless does. In loveless the relasionship is much shounen-ai while Miharu and Yoite is connedted in another way (kinda like brother/idole sort of way)

The very similar part is the development of the two main characters together.

Monochrome Factor

Monochrome Factor

Though the world may seem to be a normal place, in the midst of shadows lies the supernatural and terrifying. Beings from the shadow world known as Kokuchi have begun to invade the human world, and it’s up to certain people to defeat them; Akira Nikaido is one such person. Though his life used to be ordinary, one day, the bishounen and affectionate Shirogane asked Akira to form a pact with him; and consequently, Akira became Shirogane’s shadow partner. Together, the two hunt down stray Kokuchi – but more importantly, Akira must fend off Shirogane’s advances and try to make his classes!

Both anime are shounen-ai and contain a mix of action, comedy, drama, and fantasy.  They also have the same director.  If you like one, you will probably like the other.

The animes are very simmilar in terms of plot, e.g. the necessity of relationship to fight bad guys. 

homakp homakp says...

the opening is so same

the stuff are also same

and i feel so many similarities in the way both stories are picturized.

though, the plot of MF is not as strong and mysterious as Loveless. yet both character designs are equally strong.

There's the slightest hint of shounen-ai in this series. Also, Loveless's French feeling and soundtrack have a similar sophisticated feeling to Gankutsuou. The animation is of the same quality as well. If you liked one, try the other.

youkais youkais says...

Both of them have a unique scene, with colors and textures. gankutsuou is a bit more dramatic than Loveless and have a really intriguing plot, with family misteryous, just like Loveless.

Also there is possible shonen-ai hints between the main characters in both.

You should try it.

Both series are shounen ai and include all of the good things: bishounen (handsome guys) and romance. In both, a cute boy falls in love with a tall handsome guy (or the other way around) and you follow their difficult journey to be together. If you liked one of them, you'll surely like the other one as well.

Day22 Day22 says...

This has exactly the same feel. The semeXuke set ups are basically the same. It's lighthearted yet serious. The character are pretty much the same just in different enviorments.

Loveless and Angel's Feather take a dramatic approach to shounen-ai mixed with magic. Both Angel's Feather and Loveless include supernatural battles and a growing romantic relationship between male characters. A very vibrant and elegant design pervades these anime as does the occasional feeling of fragmentation that makes one feel that the whole story is about to begin exactly when it comes to an end.

Both Angel's Feather and Loveless have a mysterious plot and involve a great deal of action. Both series also involve relationships between male characters, and the stories progress in an artful way with beautiful animation.
