Both series are about teenage boys who posess extreme powers and destined to become the leaders of other worlds they know nothing about.

Both of the main protagonists were common boys before something threw them into a world they knew nothing about. There, they learned they were the destined ruler of a magical realm that intertwined with their own. While Kyo Kara Maoh has demons, and Nabari no Ou has ninjas, both have copious amounts of bishounens.

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.

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^^ 

Pandora Hearts

Pandora Hearts

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 feature a boy who has to deal with a hidden power. He winds up surrounded by people with incredible powers as he tries to discover his true self. Many of the characters in both anime are dealing with their past, and friendships are important themes in both anime as well. The tone in similar in both, so if you enjoyed one, you might like the other.

I Think You would love watching this! Both anime have the male protagonist fighting an unkown force, and being thrown into a world that he had no idea existed. The world seems twisted and unfair yet it lies peacefully co-existing with the peacfull world he once knew.

For Niwa Daisuke, turning 14 should be accompanied by romance and the promise of new adventures into adulthood, but instead comes with a surprising revelation: all male children of the Niwa's bloodline inherit the powers (alter ego) of Dark, a phantom thief, upon their 14th birthday! Now, in addition to his ever-present quest to win the heart of his childhood friend Risa, Daisuke must commit acts of thievery (with his doppelganger Dark controlling his body), to steal mysterious pieces of art for unknown purposes. For Daisuke, his growing pains are just beginning!

Both series are about boys who are unexpectedly told that they are people of great importance. They suddenly have to change all their life and start being some kind of 'star'. If you liked one you'll like another for sure.
