Fourteen years ago, the witches of the world waged war against humans and due to their immense power, many countries fell under their control. In order to combat this threat, the unharmed nations formed an organisation consisting of humans with special abilities known as the "Witch Hunters". Tasha Gospel is one such witch hunter who, under the codename Magic Bullet Marksman travels the land with his pumpkin-faced supporter, Halloween, taking on missions to defeat witches and earn his income. However, what Tasha really aims for is to locate his sister, Aria, who has been corrupted by the power of a magical hat and is now known as the Red Witch. But will he be able to take back his sister from the ones who stole her in the first place, and can he do it before the curse Aria cast several years ago kills him?
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.
Hmmm... A bunch of people with unique powers, working in church-based military organisation, hunting down the evil guys, (also with unique power). Hell, even their uniforms look practically the same... Add to that, that in both cases the main character is a white-haired kid and the titles start to resemble twins.
Of course there are some small differences.. Like the powers, the designs, the names... But you know - switch exorcists for witch hunters, devils for witches and you got the same stuff.
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!
Both mangas have a lot of similiarities. First they all have really good planned universes , with their rules. Main characters are part of a team for saving a world. Both have an idea to hunt down witches and all characters have unique abilities.
