Synopsis:

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.

Kurokami The Animation

Kurokami The Animation

Beyond the knowledge of most people, the world contains a dark secret: of every person in the world, there exist two identical copies (called Doppeliners) with the same body and mind. Among the three, however, is distributed only a finite amount of fortune; should they ever encounter one another, the one with a smaller portion dies and the remainder is distributed until only one, the Master Root, survives. Keita Ibuki lives his day-to-day life as ignorant of this as everyone else until he stumbles upon a mysterious young girl named Kuro who explains to him these secrets of the world. Despite not wanting to have anything to do with her or the danger that inevitably seems to follow, their fates become intertwined and he finds that the Doppeliner system has more to do with his past than he realizes.

They both have a "potential" couple where the feminine role has a special power which needs to be realeased by the male who is the main character. They are both humorus at points but can be thrilling and serious the next moment. i love both of these

wolfangel87

If you are looking for an awe inspiring display of female power, look no further than Pandora Hearts and Kurokami the Animation. The drama and suspense is ever thrilling as the young girls try to get the heroes to release their power.

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Le Portrait de Petit Cossette

Kurahashi has never been the same since the hallucinations started. His condition is not medical in nature, and only seems to be triggered by an antique glass which shows him things he never would wish to see. For Kurahashi, figuring out the mystery of the Petit Cossette that appears to him in his waking dreams is a matter of life or death... and his sanity...

Pandora Hearts and Le Portrait de... gave me the same feeling. Both have pretty dark atmospheres and situations, and the animation gave off similar vibes (to me, at least).

NimirRa

This is a gut feeling recommendation, but I think these two shows have more in common than meets the eye. Whether it was the strangeness of the Abyss (Pandora Hearts) and the fantasical elements present in Le Portrait de Petit Cossette that sparked the similarity in my mind or be it something else altogether, I think if you liked one of these shows the other might be right up your alley.

Nocturnalgloria

Faux-Victorian England, young aristocrats who just happen to be orphans, contracts with demons and supernatural entities popping up at all times, fancy dressing: it could either be Pandora Hearts or Makai Ouji. Apart from all this they combine a lot of parody with drama and rely heavily on a cast of very pretty males between which there are enough BL undertones to go around.

sothis

Pandora Hearts and Makai Ouji share a victorian feel, fantastical bishies and a similar mix of darkness and comedy. They just share the same tone - try out one if you liked the other.

Nabari no Ou

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. 

ccflier

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.

In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class.

Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
