Basilisk

Basilisk

Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace. Just as the two vow to reconcile the clans with their marriage, the shogun orders the feud to resume in order to resolve an internal struggle that threatens to tear the Tokugawa shogunate apart. Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?

Both series take place in the world of legendary spies - the world of ninja clans with their secret killing techniques. Both series follow touching story of love (Basilisk) or friendship (Nabari no Ou). If you liked one, you would surely like the other.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

On the surface, the two shows are very similar. One secret ninja clan fighting another to prove supremacy. Both Nabari and Basilisk are very fantastical in nature, with some over the top fight scenes and special moves being used.

The relationships between friends and lovers are explored in these shows, making them both a bit different from the usual action shows, and probably appeal more to a slightly older and more mature audience.

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.

Although the settings are very different (Nabari no Ou is about ninjas in contemporary society, 07-Ghost is Church vs Empire) these animes gave me the same feeling.

The main characters both don't remember their past and have a hidden power that other people want. The theme of friendship (nearly shounen-ai) is very strong too.

nabari and 07- ghost main characters both have a hidden power both of them helped by a group of friends and both have a  friend basically a dude  close to the main characters so yeah there nearly the same feel but different themes

D.N.Angel

D.N.Angel

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.

Though the genre is different (PoT is about sports and NnO is about ninja) the main characters and the mood seem similar. Both Rokujou and Ryoma are young and calm and cool. If you like Echizen then you'll like Miharu and vice versa.
