Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

in both series the main characters (ichigo- bleach Akira - MF) are suddenly dragged into a world they don't know where they are dragged to fight with horrible monsters in order to save their friends and all humans. Great fights and very funny scenes with a lot of action and great twists. All characters have a great friendship beetween them. You'll surely like one if you liked the other.

Both the series contain supernatural enomanies, that both main characters must battle to protect the world from. Both the main characters (Akira and Ichigo) meet a mysterious and strange person one day fallowing afterwards an event that transforms them, and that will change them and the world as they see forever.

In both series, main character meets a strange person, obtains superpowers, discovers that there is another, "magical" part of our world and has to fight with weird monsters.

Except for the plot similarities, in each there is also a lot of humour, so I'm sure like them both ;)

In both animes, the main character is in a life or death situation and unknowingly becomes not human. They are now stuck in keeping the world in balance. And have help from their friends who have obtained unique powers even though they're human. Both animes are action and comedy. And I recommend both!

They are both supernatural and shounen styled. Their auras and story line are very different, but Bleach is really good. I'm sure you'll get hooked.

Loveless

Loveless

Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. 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 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.

VVV and MF are supernatural tales with demons and people with superpowers; however, they are also both relatively boring. I strongly preferred VVV to MF, not only for subject matter but also for appearance. Regardless, if you liked one, you may enjoy the other.

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

Venus Versus Virus and Monochrome Factor follow the same pattern: normal student becomes empowered and fights supernatural creatures with the help with a team. The fact that these monsters possess human victims and that they are unseen by normal humans only adds more to the similarity between these titles. Venus Versus Virus is mostly a serious anime with female leads while Monochrome Factor is heavy on the comedy and with bishies galore.

both main characters are dragged into a dangerous world they don't know, while nabari no ou is about ninjas and MF about evil spirits they both share the friendship beetween the characters and how they protect each other. In both animes there are also two sides, the "good guys" and the "bad guys", and they are constantly fighting each other. Great action, humor and drama, you'll pretty sure like one if you liked the other.

homakp homakp says...

there are a lot of similarities, in case of characters and story line.

the difference is i think MF characters and design are a bit stronger, specially for Shirogane.but then Yoite also has a complicatet-strong character.

 if you liked MF, i'm 80% sure that you'll like NNO, but if you liked NNO, i'm 99% sure that you'll like MF!

finally, both have something in common: a strong ending (in my opinion) which made me forget the whole series and watch the last episode again and again^^ 

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!

redfire389 redfire389 says...

both animes revolve around spirits, souls, evil spirits. in both animes there are spirits who sometimes control people, and as they grow up inside of them and their hatred and sadness they become more powerfull. In both animes there are the good guys eliminating bad souls, trying to balance the world. those and the action, humor and drama on both animes will make you like one if you liked the other.

anosora anosora says...

Their feel is very different but supernatural/shounen similar. Soul Eater is more comedic, but much more attracting. It'll draw your attention if you liked Monochrome Factor, I tried it and it worked!
