If you like comedy with your shonen-ai, you'll like these series. Both are hilarious, and they have their cute moments, too.

Both animes have similar groups of friends, that make you smile or laugh, while the main characters are looking for the truth about themselves.

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

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.

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 Akunen says...

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.

Both of these stories revolve around a seemingly normal boy teenager. Both are confronted with a strange man. While the enconters are very different, both leave lasting impressions on the main male. Both of the strange men are protention love interests for the main male charater. Both the shows also involve the main characters fighting deamons that invade the darkness of people's hearts. Both also involve a shocking revelation about a friend of the main male. Both the main characters also find out that they have special powers that they were unaware of. While Monochrome Factor is less serious than Uragiri was Boku no Namae o Shitteiru both are very similar in their natures.

VideCorTuum VideCorTuum says...

Both of the main story lines revolve around high school age boys who are leading seemingly normal lives until they're pulled into a world of darkness that they don't quite understand. Both are confronted with the fact that they have powers or will come into supernatural powers, both for similar reasons that I won't state so I don't ruin the plot. Both also have protectors/partners- Zess for Yuki and Shirogane for Akira- and fight alongside their friends. I think that if you liked one, you will probably like the other.

Mushi-uta

Mushi-uta

In a nightmarish Earth, bugs (mushi) have begun to infect humans. Though not hurting their hosts initially, eventually the mushi devour the hosts' dreams, killing them in the process. Humans that are "lucky" enough to have their mushi killed ahead of time become emotionless and thoughtless zombies. In this uncertain time the Mushibune, infected humans who resist their persecution, are up against the Special Environment Preservation Agency, an organization hell-bent on destroying the mushi. Kakkou, SEPA's top agent, has been sent undercover to track down a high school student; but he didn't realize he'd meet and fall for the lovely Shiika instead...

Mushiuta and Monochrome Factor have a remarkably similar feel; they are supernatural tales filled with demons and boring dialogue - and MF adds an absurd amount of chibis to the mix. Not to mention, the strange caterpillar shadow shows up in both anime! I hated both of these, but if you liked one you'd like the other.
