Allen Walker is not your average fifteen-year-old boy - he is an exorcist and a member of the Black Order, an organization charged by the Church with the elimination of Akuma. The Akuma are the minions of The Millenium Earl - an evil demon-like entity intending to cleanse the world by destroying the entire human race in the manner of Noah's great flood. Allen and the other exorcists are special people who are compatible with a substance named Innocence, which allows them to form Anti-Akuma weapons; and as such Exorcists are the only ones capable of fighting the Akuma. Allen and his friends must battle to save humanity from the Akuma and Earl's evil plans.
Ichigo Kurosaki is an average high school boy with a not-so-average ability to see spirits - something that hadn't affected his life much until a strange woman entered his room one day. Named Kuchiki Rukia, she's a shinigami who was sent from the spirit world to destroy a hollow - a dead-soul-turned-monster; and much to her surprise, Ichigo can see her. When the hollow suddenly attacks his family, Rukia intervenes and is injured in the process, leaving Ichigo to fight it himself. But when Rukia lends him her shinigami powers - which is forbidden - he inadvertently drains them away and has no way to return them. Now, Ichigo is a full-fledged shinigami who must juggle his studies with his newfound duty of fighting hollows; but having gained his powers through forbidden means, the spirit world isn't going to leave Ichigo alone. Ichigo and Rukia must keep their situation a secret from the other shinigami, or the consequences could be dire.
Bleach and D.Gray-man have similar concepts. The main characters in both mangas use weapons that free souls from demons. Hollows and Akuma are both pretty much born from the emotions of human beings (although Hollows are born from the person who dies, while Akuma are born from people who were close to the person who dies). The shows both deal with spirits and the dearly departed as well.
Both D.Gray-man and Bleach are primarily action based manga. Both also have a strong central character that works to protect people from the darker side of life, be they Akuma or Hollows. Both also thow a bit of comedy into the mix so if you like one then it's worth trying the other.
It's because they both contain supernatural stuff, and having fights between monsters, plus some places in both are very funny >_<
they've some similiar concepts ;
Exorcist - Shinigami
Innocence - Zanpakto
Akuma - Hollow
D.Gray-Man and Bleach, both have:
- a focus on shounen, action, fighting,
- an organization that fights agasisnt evil spirits.
Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boy’s Monastery. One day, however, Rin encounters a boy who has been possessed by a demon. Amidst the struggle, he not only awakens latent powers sealed within him, but also learns that he is the son of Satan! No longer able to stay under the protection of the church and with his very existence straddling the line between human and demon, Rin decides to fight against his parentage and joins the True Cross Order as an exorcist. Now, the teen must attend the True Cross Academy and begin special exorcist training alongside his new comrades all while keeping his identity a secret; but can the son of Satan really become a true exorcist?
In both these manga there is a boy with certain powers that can be quite powerful-because of the cercumstances and because of them. Both manga also are about exorsits, demons and trying to become powerful.
Though somtimes the feel of the manga is slightly different, some of the charictors give off a similar vibe.
If you liked one you will defenetly like the other.
There's definitely similar aspects in both these Mangas, groups of teenage exorcists fighting demons leaded by Satan or Millenium Earl, packed with good a amount of humor. The core artwork is not very similar, but they both follow their own halloween'ish dark'ish style which I like a lot. Check them out!!
Both of these are shounen manga about exorcist organisations. While Ao no Exorcist focuses on exorcists in training, if you enjoyed the comedy, action and demon kick-assery of one, then you'll likely enjoy the other.
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!
D.Gray.Man and Soul Eater Mangas have tons of similarities:
- Shounen, Action, Supernatural, Superpowers
- Animes that ended before the mangas;
- Weapons that have an attachment to the users;
- Hunting demons organizations;
- Protagonist that are tainted by the evil they fight;
- Noah's as antagonists that symbolize feelings;
- Presence of clowns;
- Original and similar artwork;
- Interesting characters;
- Crazy good battles.
If you liked one you are definitely like the other.
D.Gray-Man and Soul Eater are simmilar, cause:
Black Order = Shibusen
Exorcist = Student of Shibusen
In Soul Eater people fights with "akuma", like in DGM.
Plenty of similiraties to be found on both of these mangas, fighting shounen with awesome supernatural powers filled with humor and a very dark halloween'ish touch in the artwork, and in the middle of it you'll get a nice plot and some slow character development.
The first law of alchemy is that "one cannot gain something without giving something of equal value in return" - a rule that two souls dare to cross. When Edward and Alphonse Elric try to revive their dead mother, breaking the taboo of human transmutation in process, Ed loses his right arm and left leg while Al loses his entire body. After the tragedy, an alchemist named Roy Mustang visits them and tells Edward to become a state alchemist to find a way to recover what they have lost. Accompanied by Al, whose soul is now attached to a metal suit of armor, Ed is fitted with auto-mail parts in place of his lost limbs and becomes a state alchemist by the name of "Full Metal Alchemist." Together, they set forth on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone - the one item that is rumored to have the power to restore them.
Though the subject matter is somewhat different, my reason for making this rec is that both of these series have a very similar tone. They have the same sort of mix of comedy and action alongside a good plotline. Also both Fullmetal Alchemist and D.Gray-Man feel a little darker than most shounen manga, so if you enjoyed one, and like the genre, then definitely check out the other.
Both have strong dark elements, but throw in lots of humor to balance it out. They also both have a very similar cast, with a group of inredibly powerful bad guys who are used for comedic relief when not in intense fights, an easily angered and self-justified young teenager for a protagonist, etc. They work the same; the plot mechanics are similar and even the fights are reminiscent of each other.
D.Gray-Man is a manga that magnificently displays a blend of excorcism and fighting with a cool goth theme wrapped with many races around the world and displayed with a story of dramatic and funny proportions. This is truly a good manga that rightfully deserves a crown.
Ga-Rei is similar manga depicting exorcism immersed with a rich dose of Japanese culture and ancient folklore. It have magnificent visuals and much effort is spent drawing on each page. The story is amazing and drama and comedy comes in perfectly with it. Sadly this manga that rivals D.Gray-Man and Bleach is under appreciated by manga reader everywhere.
Check both of these manga out will not disappoint you! I swear it!
