If you liked the Black Butler manga, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
I think that these two series have a very similar style. There is a young master and a loyal butler/manservant. There is an evil world and the main characters are unconventional heroes.
Both of these wonderful stories take place in England at the time of top hats and counts. Just like with Ciel and Sebastian, there is a master/servant relationship between the main character and his loyal helper. Both plots have a bit of a darker element to them. As I was reading the manga I just kept seeing the similarities between the two. I know that if you like Black Butler, you're sure to like Godchild.
Both feature a young "master" who has inherited a great amount of wealth due to being born into a rich aristocratic family in Victorian London. Both Ciel Phantomhiveand Cain Hargreaves are plagued by the memories of their dark pasts that have twisted them around in the brain; they act as the heads of their respective households while simultaneously trying to grasp and maintain order in their lives and covering up possible weaknesses that may show through to outsiders or enemies. Godchild is more gothic in terms of art style, and horror is usually an equal player in its stories. Black Butler takes old ideas and put a new spin on things that are sure to entertain. And of course, there is Ciel's faithful butler, Sebastian, and Cain's butler, Riff.
You would like this because it is also a gothic manga with main characters (a boy and his butler) who go around solving crimes in 19th century England with tones of the occult.
Both Mangas are set in England, around the same period (Victorian era), &are both gothic-type Shojo mangas. In both series, the main characters are young earls, and they both have rather interesting butlers. Godchild is the sequal to the Earl Cain Saga, making the complete series only 13volumes in length; Black Butler is currently being published, and is far longer. However, both have good plots and story-lines. Check them out if you like Shojo manga!
Tankyou every one i will read it, and i recommend black butler (in case you havent read it allredy)
In 2010, the Britannian Empire enslaved Japan after a brutal month-long assault; in the aftermath Japan was renamed Area 11, and its people began a hard and terrible existence. Lelouch, a Britannian student living in Area 11, has grown up hating the Empire and everything it stands for. One day, while investigating a crashed military plane, Lelouch meets a mysterious girl who grants him the ability to control minds. Can he use his new power to fight for freedom, or will his hatred twist his good intentions into mindless acts of vengeance?
Code Geass and Black Butler are about intelligent main characters that are pretty powerless on their own; they rely on other people’s abilities and their own ability to manipulate the people around them to get what they want, and they both want revenge!
Like Ciel, also Lelouch wants revenge. Both rely on another characters to acomplish their goals.
The connection here is pretty obvious; both manga deal with similar themes such as the underworld and feature a contract for survival between a younger man and a supernatural being. The victorian-esque art style is very similar, despite Sougiya Riddle taking place in modern times.
If you enjoyed reading one, then giving the other a try is a must.
a boy and a man who have supernatural powers form a contract (in S.R.'s case, the man was the one offering not the boy). fights. professional art. also the amount of mystery in both seems to be the same.
these are the only similarities i can see. yet i enjoyed both.
Nineteen-year-old ronin Hideki Motosuwa desires two things more than anything else: a girlfriend, and an expensive humanoid computer (known as a 'persocom'). But with his dead-end job and no financial aid from his parents, owning a persocom seems impossible... until he finds a blond-haired female persocom tied up amongst a pile of trash! After getting her home and figuring out how to activate her, even the computer-illiterate Hideki realizes there is something unusual when it appears she can only say one word - Chii. Is she just broken, or is there more to this persocom than her behavior lets on?
If you like Chobits or Black Butler, your bound to like the other one.
Both involve careing characters, with a touch of mystery, comedy and tons of other aspects that tie the manga together to make the manga intrigueing and interesting.
This series and Black Butler kinda resemble each other with how its a young boy who gets a very loyal and handsome young man as a servant and must protect him above all else. so i think if you liked the kuroshitsuji manga you'll love this and it doesn't hurt that most of the main guys are really frickin hot...lol
