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.

LovelyWickedDescet

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.

karcik

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 ;)

funtoo2

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! 

anosora

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.

panikinga

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

homakp

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.

11eyes

11eyes

Seven years ago, Kakeru’s sister killed herself, leaving him alone. Now a teenager, Kakeru lives a quiet life with his friend Yuka and other classmates – but things change forever when he and Yuka are mysteriously transported to a frightening parallel world filled with monsters and a deep crimson sky.

Why must they fight, and what is their purpose in the Red Night?

Bleach09

Fighting in worlds other than their own is one aspect that makes these two anime so similar.  One day the main characters suddenly find themselves running for their life in an alternate dimension but eventually come back.  Also the characters find out the truth about themselves, but it's nothing that they would have ever thought of.  These aspects make them all the more exciting and suspenseful.

Akunen

Monochrome Factor and 11eyes have similarities in the battle aspect: monsters from another world are attacking, and the characters have their own special item that allows them to fight these monsters. The plot in 11eyes is heavier than that of Monochrome Factor, but you just might like one if you liked the other.

In both anime the main character fight demons that take over a human. they both are funny and have a lot of action. so if you like monochrome factor you'd also like D.gray-man

anosora

The feel to both animes are very similar, both same darkness and humor, but much better executed in d. gray man. You'll enjoy it.

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

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^^
