Synopsis:

Five hundred years ago there lived a feudal lord with a vast amount of spiritual power. To keep it from falling into the hands of demonic Ayakashi, the mage Tokimori Hazama and his two students were called to defend the land. However, they fell ill, and the feudal lord was killed and buried on the land now called Karasumori. Years later the successors of the Hazama students, Yoshimori and Tokine, have inherited the powers of the Hazama clan. They are Kekkaishi, users of the Kekkai, a secret and powerful technique that creates a strong barrier to capture and eliminate Ayakashi. Protectors of the power buried beneath Karasumori, Yoshimori and Tokine spend their days in the school built on the land, and their nights defending it from attackers who wish to use the power for their own purposes. With Karasumori's power growing more unpredictable everyday, will Yoshimori become strong enough to protect the ones he loves?

Bleach

Bleach

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 Kekkaishi are similar in many aspects.Both series main story revolve around a School boy,who has secret life that only few know about. Both have ample amounts of supernatural element- with bleach featuring entities like shinigamies, hollows, super powered humansand kekkaishi featuring Ayakashi's ,demons, Dragons and Pseudo monster humans.

Both Manga have nice art, with lots of details in fight scenes, there is ample destruction everytime when someone fights.The comedy concept is Good in both series with many laughs from time to time.

Anyways, if u liked one series u would love the other

Thrawn

Superpowers and one boy who can tap into his buffed up kick ass powers from within. Each of the main dudes (Ichigo for Bleach and Yoshimori for Kekkaishi) have crazy power, but are untrained in the ways of utilizing it to their full, face wrecking potential. So they learn as a plot moves on, a plot that grows bigger and more grand over time from the initial world-building/introductions and almost episodic content.

Balancing action and comedy, both fulfill the need for cool fights and comedy in the downtime inbetween said fights while developing and fleshing out characters. Both are long-runners and pack on the volumes so be prepared for the long haul if you're determined to see them through.

Chrono Crusade

Chrono Crusade

In 1920s America, Sister Rosette Christopher is a young nun of the Magdala Order - a military branch of the church charged with exorcising demons. Together with her assistant and best friend Chrno, a demon who Rosette has a contract with, she is sent on various missions to fight the many different monsters that lurk in the shadows. However, Rosette's main motive is to find information regarding her brother Joshua, who was kidnapped by Chrno's former ally Aion for unknown reasons. Aion has an ambitious plan that threatens the future of the world, and it's up to Rosette and Chrno to figure out Aion's plans and rescue Joshua before time runs out...

Defeating demons isn't as easy as it seems when you don't really have that much determination to fight them, so why do Yoshimori and Rosette fight these demons when they don't have the determination to fight them? Is it just because it's their job? Or is there another reason?

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

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.

FMA and Kekkaishi

Similar yet Different, but both have certain charm to it that makes u love them.Lets start with Main char - they are as similar as they can beBoys who are shorter then normal people and have a Crush on a neighbour who likes Boys taller then her and Hence have a height complex with getting mad ,when someone dare call them short and both are shy to convey their feelings. Both also have a Brother Complex of a sort- with Yoshimori jealous of his brothers skills and Edward guilty of making his brother into state he is.Might aswell add both have huge attachment to their mother, who they miss and wished they could live together with.

And as about story, both have interesting storyline which keeps u entertained, Both series feature a clear goal for the end( sealing karasori in Kekkaishi and getting thier bodies back in FMA)They both face many enemies, enemies who turn to friends. Action Packed, Comedy stuffed and all they need is your love xDIf u liked one, give other one a shot for sure

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

Shirihama Kenichi is a weak scaredy-cat, and his status as the karate club's punching bag has earned him the name of ‘Weak Legs'. One day Kenichi meets Miu and, impressed by her skill after she effortlessly throws him to the ground, he follows her to the Ryouzanpaku dojo. There he finds five great masters of martial arts, and driven by his desire to become stronger, he begs them to accept him as their student - though it won't be easy. Kenichi endures harsh training (and injury) from Akisame - the philosophizing Jujitsu master; Apachai - the Muay Thai ‘God of Death'; Kensei - the ecchi Chinese Kempo Master; and Shigure - the weapons prodigy. Finally after proving his determination, he is accepted by Shio - the 100-dan Karate Master, who had initially wanted nothing to do with him. Now Kenichi walks the long and arduous path to becoming a master himself, all whilst trying to protect those he cares about from anyone who would dare to harm them.

At first these two might seem different because of the setting and premise, but they share many underlying themes. we have a younger boy infatuted with a older and more skillfull female. the female leads of both stories slowly come to respect the protaginists as they grow.

Another similarity between the two exist in how tactics and skills are employed in battles as they are learned, instead of random powerups

Naruto

Action, violence, and protecting the ones you love.  Naruto and Kekkaishi both have many of the same themes.  The also share similar main characters who may not be as strong as everyone else, but the sure do have a whole lot of endurance.  There are a lot of parallels between these two manga.  You will probably like one if you like the other
