Aya, Omi, Ken and Yoji are four seemingly normal high school boys, who make up an elite assassin group known only as Weiss. The hits involve taking out corporate businessmen and corrupt politicians; however, trouble arises during a routine job, when Weiss clashes with a rival gang of assassins, Schwarz. With Schwarz in the way, they will reach the limits of their elite skills while trying to defeat their ultimate target: the Takatori family...

Law of Ueki

Law of Ueki

There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!

Both series have very different plots. First, Weiss Kreuz It's about aya,omi,ken and yoji working for vice  to defeat evil people.There is romance, revenge and a little bit of comedy.Unlike The law of ueki, it has comedy and action.Its about a guy named ueki who is selected by his teacher to fight battles to become a king of his world.These two series may have diferent plots but i know if you enjoyed watching one you'd also enjoy the other one

Meine Liebe

Meine Liebe

It was a time of political instability. While most of Europe was involved with power struggles, the island country of Kuchen followed its own independent path; and with the leadership of an intelligent king and his advisors, the people worked to restore their kingdom. These advisors, with strong minds and good backgrounds, were graduates of a prestigious boarding school known as the Rozenstolz Academy. Follow the lives of the five students with the potential to become the king's next advisors (known as the Strahl candidates), as they strive to achieve their dreams.

It is difficult to pin down exactly what makes Weiss Kreuz and Meine Liebe so similar since one deals with hitmen in the modern world while the other takes place in a academy in a vaguely historical setting but they share a certain atmosphere. The almost all male ensemble that has to interact and cooperate in close quarters as well as the contrasting personalities add an air of drama, the characters' backgrounds that are brought to weight on the narrative and the overall feeling make these titles reminiscent of each other. Those who were able to turn a blind eye to the flaws of one are likely to enjoy the other.



In the mystical world of Shangri-la, demons and humans live side by side, watched over by a parthenon of ancient Chinese gods. But when normally-civilized demons start to go berserk, the gods require the services of Genjou Sanzo - a Buddhist priest with a magical gun, an evil-banishing scripture and a take-no-prisoners attitude. Aided by the ancient monkey god Son Goku, the half-demon Sha Gojyo and the demon exterminator Cho Hakkai, he sets off on a treacherous journey westward, with armies of demons, dark mages and angry gods all standing in his way...

Both series follow the premise of wandering souls kept from going forward in life by their horrible pasts.

Many of the characters in Weiss have very similar additudes to those in Saiyuki. Aya/Sanzo the anal-retentive "leader"  , Schulidich/Gojyo resident flame-haired cocky know-it-all. Both series also share voice actor Seki Toshihiko.

However there are also many difference between both series which make them enjoyable for any viewer. While Weiss has a generally serious tone with occasional laughs from random flowershop fangirls or Youji's incessant flirting, Saiyuki has rather dramatic shifts from histerical laughter to extreme drama. Both series have great back stories for each of the main characters which is probable the greatest simlarity between the series. There also seems to be quite a few fans which intently follow both series.
