In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
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 have similar settings, taking place in a unique fantasy world. The characters of each are unforgettable; from the eccentric, to the insane (and even sadistic). The comedy in each is solid, and even in the dark parts of each, you'll find yourself laughing from the character interactions.
Soul Eater and Pandora Hearts are dark shounen action/comedy/mystery/everything else-s that feature the fighting system of having two chatacters team up, one of which acts as the "weapon" of the other. This makes the way the casts (both of which are large and varied) "mesh" with each other fairly interesting.
For some reason, they both have a simlar feel. In no way are they the exact same, for I think Soul Eater is much more a comedy than Pandora Hearts. (Although Pandora Hearts has Its moments)
They also seem to have some simlar characters. (Break/Dr.Stein) for example.
If you liked one, you'd love the other.
In a dark and dreary dimension, the mysterious Black Rock Shooter roams the desolate landscape with her gigantic gun, pausing only to battle against other mysterious super-powered girls. Elsewhere, a teenage girl is excitedly preparing for her very first day of junior high, eager to begin her new life of attending a basketball club and befriending the elegant new girl. But what exactly is the connection between these two worlds?
Both offer nice fight scenes but also have a story of the characters' relationships. At first I was bummed that this was only a single hour long OVA and that was that. The characters were easy to get attached to and an hour was more than enough time to grow to love the story which accounts for my initial reaction. If you were offered one bite of the best food in the world, would you take it for what it's worth or pass it up completely?
I didn't know what it was about BRS that reminded me of Soul Eater until I thought about it for a few mintues afterwords. Both Soul Eater and Black Rock Shooter take advatange of a "fish-eye lens"ish directorial device, and overall share similar animation styles. If you liked one, you may appreciate the other.
Some things in life are so bad that you'd like to pretend they're just a dream. Unfortunately for Kazuki, trying to save a strange girl from being brutally killed by monsters (and ending up dying instead) is an unfortunate reality. Out of pity, the girl replaces Kazuki's heart with an alchemy-based artifact known as Kakugane, so that he may live on. With this strange device, Kazuki gains the power of Busou Renkin -- Arms Alchemy; a power that will come in handy when monsters (and worse) begin to plague his town! Kazuki soon meets the girl from his “dream” (named Tokiko) in reality, and she tells Kazuki to get on with his life; but with his sister and friends in danger, that might not be possible. Besides, if Kazuki gives up the chance to show off just how manly he can be, how can he hope to win the heart of the alluring older-sister-like Tokiko?!
Both Busou Renkin and Soul Eater are battle series with magical/enchanted style weapons and superpowered enemies. Busou Renkin has the alchemic warriors using their Busou Renkins to fight off the homonculous, and Soul Eater has Meisters and Weapons fighting together to defeat the evil Kiishin souls and witches. Both series have a lot of action, with some comedy mixed in for good measure. And as a minor correlation, both series involve a school setting. Busou Renkin has Kazuki Muto and Tokiko Tsumura spening a good portion of their time at the local high school, while Soul Eater has it's cast spending a large amount of time at the Death Weapon Meister Academy (or DWMA) where Meisters and Weapons study and train hard to fight Kiishin souls, Witches, and ultimately for Meisters to turn their Weapon partner into a powerful weapon. I have a strong feeling that if you liked one, you'll like the other.
(: Trust me ... Busou Renkin involves the partnerships and all of the drama or fighting like soul eater
In the future, a man roams through the desolate wastelands. His enemies whisper his name with fear and awe: the "Demon of the Sands".

Yet, he is still a man, and may have finally met his match in the beautiful and very well endowed Asagiri Junko. Now, he must learn to deal with the the harsh climate, hapless outlaws, and his complete weakness for the opposite sex!
Both of these anime will make you laugh. They both have great action. If you like anime that make you laugh and at the same time in the grip of suspense I would choose desert punk or soul eater. Both of these anime are completely random and filled with slapstick humor.
LOVED both shows have great action and drama, although Desert Punk does have echii ness involed, I would recommend either full of LMFAO humor, an keep you entertained throught out all the episodes enjoy!!!
Enter the world of devils! Laharl, the prince of the Netherworld, awakens after a two-year-long slumber to find the land thrown into chaos. His father, King Krichevskoy, has died and the land has no ruler. Laharl decides that he is the only one worthy to replace his father, so he sets out on a journey back to his castle to claim the throne before another rogue devil tries to take what is rightfully his. Aided by the unlikely and unfortunate Flonne the angel and the deceiving former assistant to the King, Etna, what kind of hardships, misadventures, and bizarre encounters will they inevitably run into along the way?
Both series are great series that nail down that very childish sense of humor with passing marks. I laughed my way through both series while still getting good action and good stories.
The term that comes to mind for both of these Anime is 'chaotic comedy'. Viewers will immediately recognise the similarities between the two groups of main characters - many personalities, but the ones that show through the most are the brash, opinionated and yet occasionally still shy characters of Laharl and Etna in Disgaea, and Soul, Black Star and Kid in Soul Eater. Indeed, Kid and Laharl share another trait in that they are both the sons of immensely powerful and well respected figures.
The style of both Anime is also comparable - both studios are obviously comfortable in using different delivery methods within the same scenes to emphasise and exaggerate the story and the character's emotions - and the fantasy worlds in which the stories unfold are comparable too for their strange dark undertones that are represented in imaginative and colourful ways.
