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.
In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.
Both Kuroshitsuji and Pandora Hearts have a similar darker tone to the plot, and both also mix this with a small dose of comedy. Though the subject matter is different, both are also based on the supernatural. If you liked one, then try the other.
If you liked Kuro Shitsuji or Pandora Hearts, you'd more than likely like the other just as much, or perhaps more. They both contain a small amount of action to feed your inner action-hungry self, but are both more themed to a more mysterious, darker tone, and contain both mystery and supernatural.
Another thing to note is that they both have similar clothing, which is a plus, and that every character has a unique, definable personality.
Both anime feature supernatural creatures. They also feature a boy dealing with his past, and the servant/master relationship is important in both as well. The settings are similar, and the tone and characters remind me of each other.
Pandora and Kuroshitsuji have the same felling, using a young boy as principal character. And actually the boy in both cases has a servants with weird powers.
I pretty sure that if you like one you will like the other..
Kuroshitsuji and Pandora Hearts have the same tone as well as similar characters. The two shows give a serious plot with strong willed young protagonists who are both accompanied by a supernatural being through a contract. They also share good comedic relief, if not entertainment, plus nice art and animation. If you enjoyed either Kuroshitusji or Pandora Hearts and would like to watch something akin to it, check the other out.
Having practically the same protagonists and simmilar definition of life and death, along with all characters that are not human, including shinigamis, demons and simmilar, relying on simple rules that settle the question of using the abilities of a demon (Kuroshitsuji) and a Chain (Pandora Hearts) without harming the vesel, a.k.a. the contract, and yet another also for the fabulous artwork and music, the mood of one anime is incomplete without the other. So, if you've liked one, you're most definitelly to like the other one as well.
Each of these series are fairly dark, center around a kid that has lost his parents, and contain many extremely powerful fighters. With a good mix of darkness, action, comedy, and a bit of supernatural things in the works, these series are a good fit.
both anime's were somewhat depressing at times and also funny at times and the main characters reminded me of each other
Both main characters in this series are in master servant relation, both are boys from royalty making contract with some demon. The end of it always means death to human, however they developed a bond and neither human or demon want to see each other dead.
Watching it you can find some similar characters, like white haired sweety-tooth guy witch another side to him.
And if above is not enough for you there is always nice art and animation in each of this series :)
The one show that reminded me the most about Pandora Hearts would have to be Kuroshitsuji. Maybe it is the mix of old world society and the supernatural. Or it could be the similar themes combined with the concept of a magical contract binding two people together for a common goal, but these two shows have a lot of similarities and I think if you enjoyed one you would find yourself enjoying the other as well.
Both anime have a "lord" in a lonely role with a servant who takes care of the fighting. Both involve frequent combat between the servant and some mythical creutures. Both contain a dark plot running in the background.
If you liked one, you will probably like the other.
If you want to watch some dark comedy style anime then Kuroshitsuji and Pandora Hearts are good shows to see. The supernatural undertones in both series come out shrouded in mystery and even some suspense. There is also a pleasant old fashioned feeling in regards to the clothing that bring the shows to life.
Both of these anime have a similar dark theme which will draw the audience in, as well as some of the similarities within the plot. These include a relationship where the child is the master and the adult is the servant, and will do anything for that child, although the two characters Ciel and Oz are severely different.
Pandora Hearts and Black Butler are beyond similar. The two are set both back in a Victorian Era, which is the first good thing. Both are supernatural and have a lot of gothic style for boys. Both are dark and have the same similar feel, each to its own story and interests but you'll find the similarity soon enough. If your skeptical because you love Black Butler/Pandora Hearts but won't move on, you have to rid of that skeptism because you'll really be missing out. Try out either Pandora hearts or Black Butler, they are the most similar to each other!
both have a dark, victorian-age tone in the plot and have a more seriou main theme than most animes, though they dont lack comic elements. the charakter clothing is very similar and imo the Undertaker and Xerxes Break could be twins in both appearance and behavior. Both have the master-underling-relation in the main chars (ciel,sebastian and alice,oz) but it isnt really brought out much in Pandora Hearts. before i keep rambling on: i think both animes are much alike and if you liked one, you really shoud try the other!
In Kuroshitsuji and Pandora Hearts, the story revolves mainly around the Ciel/Oz along with their butler/servant Gil/Sebastian. It can be very dark and mysterious at times or funny and interesting. Ciel and Oz will remind you of each other at times too.
If you liked Pandora Hearts or Kuroshitsuji, you'd also like the other because both of them are set in Victorian England where the master of the mansion is entrapped within a devilish contract with an unworldly creature. The relationship between the two characters evolves throughout the story. They become inseparable and indispensable for one another. If you like Horror lived by cute English characters, you know what to watch !
If you like the protector role for the rich boy, I reccoment also Pandora hearts.
It is almost the same, I hope you like it to!!
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
FMA and Pandora Hearts might not look similar at first glance, but they have a very familiar mix of genres and story progression - not to mention a heavy dose of darkness interjected between oft comedic and dramatic scenes. It's hard to explain why I think this is a good rec - it just is. I had an unmistakable sense of nostalgia when seeing Pandora Hearts, and I think you may agree.
Pandora Hearts and FMA are very similar. They are both about two main characters that are on a journey in regaining something that they once lost. Both series are filled with action and adventure and if you like one, i bet you will like the other. =)
Pandora Hearts and Fullmetal Alchemist may not seem similar at first, but as you progress you'll see it. A dark kind of mystery is spread out between the action and comedy throughout both series. The characters of the shows also hold many similarities, these can be seen when comparing the relationship between Ed and Al (of Fullmetal Alchemist) with Oz and Gil (of Pandora Hearts), or Fullmetal Alchemist's homunculi with the Baskervilles from Pandora Hearts. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll like the other.
The two anime's seem to follow the same kind of character development and story progression. With the darker tone storylines there is that occasional comedy thrown into the mix of the drama scenes to help keep watchers interested. Hard for me to completely explain the recommendation but the two series just have that matching scheme that can be noticed throughout the anime which I liked. If you like one or the other watch at least 4-5 episodes and you will understand they fit eachother.
PH and FMA have really similar tones. Both are about young protagonists running around alternate-universe Fantasy Europe (kinda-sorta) that has a really dark and bloody past. Both feature a similar blend of dark mystery/action/adventure with a bunch of comedy to lighten the mood. PH's uncle and FMA's father are really similar. ALSO! Both has a giant cast mostly filled with bishounen, just waiting for fangirls to ship everyone up in improbable yaoi pairings.
FMA and Pandora Hearts, may not look similar right away, but when you dive right in to it i am sure you will notice it to. Both main characters have lost something very important and are trying to retrieve it, from the world in which they have to travel. They both have traveling companions that are similar to both anime, along with the villains in each. They both have comdeic parts along with a new "darkness" entering it that gets you sucked into it even more! Just trust me if you like one you WILL like the other. xD
Each series has a fair share of comedy, magic and action, all the while progressing the plot in unexpected ways. Also, each series has some rather dark tones throughout, making the action even more intriguing.
Secret societies, conspiracies, and multiple layers are just three things these two shows have in common. They also both have enough comedy in them to balance out the dark elements present in both shows. If you enjoy any of these things in one of these shows or even are just interested in unique types of magic and fighting- you'll enjoy the other.
Both of these animes, I find, include doses of humour and both have a dark edge to their plot lines. While there are scary parts and realizations, the humour makes you laugh out loud. Both animes are about young teenagers that must take on a difficult adventure in order to seek truth, though these truths are different from each other. The main character in both animes must go through harsh realities to grow. Through both animes you really get to know the depth of the characters and come to understand and love them. Also, both animes are drawn out artistically well.
Teito Klein is a former slave who attends the Barsburg Empire's military academy. Having no memory of his past and the power to wield a rare ability called Zaiphon, Teito is constantly under the scrutiny of his peers - except for his best friend Mikage, the only person he connects with. After seeing and remembering the man who killed his father, Teito tries to kill him and finds himself on the run from Barsburg's military might. Now, with the evil beings known as Kor after his soul, the Barsburg Empire after his blood and only the legendary Seven Ghosts to protect him, Teito must unlock the memories of his past before he ends up as a sacrifice for Verloren, the sealed God of Death.
For a first: Both PANDORA HEARTS and 07-GHOST both contain neat, classic modern-day anime style art. Art is of course a big factor, for those like me of course, who are picky about old-new anime styles or people who get annoyed because the clarity and 'cleanness' of an anime.
Second: They both have good paced plots. Not too fast, not too slow.
Third: Both contain great, interesting and funny main characters.
Last: They both involve mysterious powers, and have a certain focus on friendship and bonding.
If you liked 07-Ghost or Pandora Hearts, you'd like the other because they both have a storyline that just draws you in after each episode, they both also deal with the main characters trying to find their place in the world while helping others on their journey.
The animation styles are extremely similar, as well as the magical storyline. Utterly engrossing, both are slightly longer series that will entertain the viewer. With a dark plot line, comedy is also used sparingly with good effect.
They are very similar. They have that same dark atmosphere to each other, with the same comedy/humor. Male protagonists and development, the tone of both animes are very similar.
Both Pandora Hearts and 07 Ghost are nice anime. Their style of art and animation is good and consistant too! Pandora hearts is about "The Abyss" and the 2 sides of Alice (both are cool) while 07 Ghost is about the main character Teito Klein who has his memories locked away and is in a nation war. Pandora hearts also has a war between humans (contractors) and chains (abyss creatures). 07 Ghost has 7 Godly ghosts and Kor (winged skeleton things). I would say more but I don't want to spoil, watch them both -- they're good!
The plots are very similar, yet different enough to clearly stand out as seperate. It doesn't feel like one is copying the other, but the theme of a determined young boy with a strange power caught in a battle bigger than himself runs in both. Both include a good balance of serious drama, action, and comedy moments between characters. The idea of journeying to find yourself also runs in both anime, as does an overall air of mystery due to memory loss.
Both 07-Ghost and Pandora Hearts have a similar feel, darker with touches of light humor. The protagonists/plots are also very similar: lots of mysterious pasts and supernatural powers.
The power to cross over dimensions is one that is deeply coveted -- a lesson that childhood friends Sakura and Syaoran learn the hard way when an unknown enemy attacks an archaeological dig in their country. As a result, Sakura's memories are scattered to different dimensions, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. In order to save Sakura's life, she and Syaoran must journey to various worlds in search of her memories, with the help of fellow travelers, Fai and Kurogane. But finding Sakura's memories won't be easy, and the price for traveling through time and space is high...
The element of fantasy, along with the search for the female protagonist's memories, brought Tsubasa Chronicles to mind instantly. Having watched both seasons of Tsubasa and just a few eps of Pandora Hearts, there are definately things that would attract the same kind of viewer.
both of Pandora Hearts and Tsubasa Chronicle series having common elements. characters , kind of music, magic, even a sort of the story relating like the main character is helping his girl to get back and collect her scattered memories.
Each of these series are driven by attempts to regain lost memories of a main character. Furthermore, there are some interesting things going on behind the scenes.
Lost memories? Check. Loyal guy/girl duo? Check. Willingness to protect the other no matter the cost? Check! These shows have much more in common than I mention, but if you enjoyed the elements I mentioned in one show give the other a shot and see just how similar they are!
I couldn't even watch Pandora Hearts without comparing it to Tsubasa Chronicle in my mind. Both anime have a character who has lost their memories. But don't worry! Thats what they make ever-so-loyal friends for. You'll watch as our amnesiac's friend braves different dimensions and magical worlds in search of the lost memories, risking life and limb on the journey. But hey, you'd do the same for your buddy, right?
Both Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and Pandora Hearts follow a lead character, Alice in Pandora Hearts and Sakura in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, who is trying to get her memories back. There's a male lead who's helping her and giving her support, who are Syaoran from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and Oz from Pandora Hearts.Along with this basic story, there is one main character similarity. Xerxes Break from Pandora Hearts is very similar to Fai Flourite from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle. They smile the same way and there's a lot of spoilers in both series that give them many similarities.Both series have a good mix of drama, action, and comedy. Pandora Hearts has a darker feel than Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle does, however, so be prepared if you haven't seen Pandora Hearts yet.
Both titles revolve around the mysterious female being who lost her memories. Merry is a Dream Demon and Alice is a Chain, both need human counterparts to sustain them. The two characters are similar in personality as well. If you like the mystery and supernatural elements of one then you will definitely like the other.
Both feature butt-kicking female protagonists and a rather otherworldly feel. Bits of comedy lighten the tension between trips between two worlds and some well animated combat. If you liked one, be sure to try the other.
Both series feature the not so average male lead who partners up with a girl who is from another dimension to fight monsters that are also from that other dimension. Though in the case of Yumekui Merry the denizens of that other dimension are known as dream demons and in Pandora Hearts they are known as chains. With a good mixture of action, comedy, and mystery I'm pretty sure that if you liked one then you may like the other.
A girl from another world besides our own enters this world tied to a guy. In both anime, more bad guys from the other world try to outdo the girl./boy pair. Recipe for awesomeness
If you liked one, check out the other.
Yumekui Merry and Pandora Hearts have two main, strong female characters with strikingly similar personalities. The series are filled with mystery and a wonderful supernatural aspect.
