Shuna03 Shuna03 says...

Both are action Shōnen anime with likable main characters. Both male leads are a bit air-headed and honest. The art style is beautiful as well, and the voice acting is amazing.

Justkaelyn Justkaelyn says...

They both have amazing animation, well choreographed fight scenes, lovable protagonists, and end goals that we can't wait to see fullfilled.

lonelyweabo lonelyweabo says...

i like both there really good and both have like some what magic involved and i love magic anime

Trix0n Trix0n says...

Both are shonen anime, so they're pretty easy to compare from the start. Both have excellent animation and choreographed fight scenes, the main characters are fairly likeable. The plot for Demon Slayer is more compelling to me but both are pretty strong. A bonus for me is neither really has the stereotypical pervy side character. If you like one, you'll almost certainly like the other.

Kiwiiiii Kiwiiiii says...

Both shows are Shōnen and it involves fighting demons and both have very eager to help and nice protagonists. Both shows also have very hyped fight scenes and many likable characters

Yunoria Yunoria says...

these both have these weird imaginary demon creatures so why not. Writing this to reach the 100 character mark

Ashdeem Ashdeem says...

Both of these shows are amazing; they are both about killing demons, they both have main characters that aren't exactly OP, but are way stronger than average.

THe animation in both shows is great.The storyline is very engaging and if you like action with a bit of comedy then they are the best fit.

Neveresta Neveresta says...

Although these two series are in different settings/time periods, both of them have a certain organization of people who deal with supernatural monsters most don't see or know about in society. The main characters are young teens who are thrown into that world through their circumstances and decide to become stronger to overcome their obstacles to the goal they strive for. Well, Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon Slayer are also both awesome/very interesting new series. Try them out if you're interested or it's in your genre.

Feinraf Feinraf says...

They both deal with the supernatural, are action-packed and more violent and disturbing than your typical Shonen Jump anime. Both have demon aspects and dark vibes.

nzingaauset nzingaauset says...

Both deal with an organization of teens who are tasked with fight the ethereal creatures in their world. Both main characters are very kind and pure-hearted. They are both taking on a sacred mission that brings them a lot of trouble and despair but they have their a great group of comrads and friends to help out.

PsychoWeebp PsychoWeebp says...

Amazing! They are both about students learning and practising new skills and fighting different kinds of "demons". They are both shoujo with kinda same MC and lot of action .Both have amazing graphics, plot and lot of more. 

Uchihamiara Uchihamiara says...

both MCs are suddenly exposed to a dark world of demons and curses and dragged into it 

both of them start training from scratch and prove to be powrefull and quick learners

both of them has overpowered characters that will train the main character 

both characters will meet new friends each with thier own back story and get really close and work together

both characters has something causing people around them to be suspicious of them and even want them dead but there are people around them who belive in them 

vevelepp vevelepp says...

these two shounen anime are really good and they're entertaining. my little 7 year old sister enjoyed them both and is in love with inosuke hehe

Lixsalot Lixsalot says...

They both have a storyline where the main character (s) go about killing non human things. Curses in Jujutsu Kaisen and Demons in Demon Slayer. 

trackrandom trackrandom says...

well they're both good. i dont feel like writing a whole paragraph but i liked them both so you might too.

TheCautionBandi TheCautionBandi says...

They both have amazing animation, are hilarious, have a creepy feel sometimes, and come from Shonen Jump. If you like one, you'll most likely like the other.

Blue Exorcist

Blue Exorcist

Rin Okumura is a seemingly ordinary boy living at the Southern Cross Boys' 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?

xCanaxCherry xCanaxCherry says...

If you liked Blue Exorcist or Jujutsu Kaisen, you'd probably like the other because both sort of take place in a school setting, both involve exorcists, and both have demonic protagonists who are trying to kill the king of demons/curses.

Beth0410 Beth0410 says...

Both end up having a demon/curse powers in different ways but still both can be dangerous if they are unable to keep the power in check. One was born with it but did not know anything about their powers till years later where the other inteionally gained powers to save his friends. 

kookieouji kookieouji says...

jujutsu kaisen is exactly like blue exorcist but better. i never quite enjoyed blue exorcist but for some reason, jujutsu kaisen is just that anime.

19O8 19O8 says...

Jujutsu Kaisen has a similar feel as Blue Exorcist.  If you like one, there's a possibility you might like the other. I watched Blue Exorcist and enjoyed it but I personally like Jujustsu Kaisen better although both are good.

9Lancelot9 9Lancelot9 says...

main character nice but super powerful guy ends up having something demon-y enough inside of him to be useful and also the target for everyone else's death wishes.

I am describing both of my favorites in the same sentence.

doux doux says...

it's basically the same concept, main dude who's a bit of a troublemaker and gets into fights and such who obtains an op demonic power and attends a 'school' to learn how to control it / fight against the power. in jujutsu it's an evil curse with sorcerers, and in blue exorcist it's the demon king and exorcists! i also enjoy both main characters, they have similar personalities in that they're both silly and have big mouths lol. i'd reccomend the manga, though, for blue exoricst if you want the whole story since the anime cuts out A LOT, but i get it reading can be a struggle lol. i enjoyed the anime too :P

BlackCatRussetWing13 BlackCatRussetWing13 says...

They're both about a kid getting supernatural powers and going to supernatural powers school. Lots of dark stuff, but the main character's a good guy.

kels31717 kels31717 says...

The plot of both anime's is VERY similar and it has really funny parts just like this one. An added bonus is that Blue Exorcist has a second season and it  is either on here or on Netflix.

ehmanimelover ehmanimelover says...

Both take place in a school and things with curses and devils. The main character goes through a lot as well. 

Uchihamiara Uchihamiara says...

  • both MCs possess something evil and they are hated for it and someone wants them dead out of fear.  
  • both animations has the theme of exorcism demons and curses and a school for training students to exorcise curses and demons.
  • both characters care about others and prove to be powerfull and use thier powers for good putting thier haters at difficult situation because they end up saving the day.

MariaSatoru MariaSatoru says...

You will like this one bc of the Magic, humor, great battles and ofc Supernatural!

vevelepp vevelepp says...

they give off the same vibes to me and they both have a good story with lovable characters. rin and itadori give me polar opposite vibes but i love them both.

WhereTheWildOnesGo WhereTheWildOnesGo says...

Very similar idea of the main character being half of something despised by both sides, demons/curses and people. The main charcters both strive to prove that they can do good, and both face training and a sort of school. Definetly check out either one you haven't seen.

Noragami

Noragami

Yato, the supposed God of Calamity, is so far down on the Shinto totem pole that he doesn't even have any followers or a shrine to call his own and has to do odd jobs to make ends meet. Worst of all, his aloof and somewhat goofy personality has just cost him his newest partner and best holy weapon. When the down-on-his-luck Yato is saved by an unfortunate soul called Hiyori, he's forced to take on a brand new job - to turn her back into a human and fix her supernatural out-of-body experiences! Can Yato, a Regalia-less, miserly minor god, even attempt such a tall order? And is there more to him than his ridiculousness lets on?

Normal students become involved in supernatural incidents after accidently coming in contact with the dark energy of the spirit world. Using their own unique powers, they end up assisting a motley crew of other supernaturally gifted friends to fight growing darkness.

crowlsparrow crowlsparrow says...

Jujutsu Kaisen and Noragami are both stories about demons needing to be exorcised. These stories are about the people that work to exorcise them while putting themselves in danger to destroy the demons that humans create. Both stories have very lovable characters and great animation and tell very moving stories. 

OmniscientAristocrat OmniscientAristocrat says...

They have the same type of world. Each main character goes around killing evil spirits/demons/monsters using some type of sacred/cursed weapon. There is a common form of comedy as well.

blissinapricot blissinapricot says...

Both these animes deal with some supernatural curses and are surrounded by the theme of exorcising them with special weapons or powers. Both the curses from these animes are formed from leaks of human emotions. Though Norgami is based on Gods exorcising these curses instead of sorcerers and the characters are different, the idea of the animes are very similar.

nzingaauset nzingaauset says...

This isn't as close a match as Parasyte or Demon Slayer but it deals with Japanese cosmology and society of otherworldly beings mixing with the mundane. There's a lot of humor and heart just like JJK. The animation is quite gorgeous just like JJK. The main characters both have a bit of manic energy but their temperaments are very different. 

Bluebellindy Bluebellindy says...

both are action shows with supernatural elements that are fun to watch and make you laugh every now and then.

MischievousAvocado MischievousAvocado says...

If you like the concept of spirits and sorcery related fights, this is a good recomendation because both of these anime revolve around this kind of idea

nyanish nyanish says...

They have similar concepts about godly powers and beings and also both have comedy involved in the drama. If you like one, you'll probably like the other:)

Jujucat Jujucat says...

They are both insanely similar, gods fighting demon like things.

highly recommend if you love either one of these animes. 

Parasyte -the maxim-

Parasyte -the maxim-

In secret, alien parasites drift downwards toward Earth. Their directive: to take control of a human body and thrive in secret. When a parasite attempts to take over Shinji, an ordinary high school student, he stops it in his arm to save his mind. With the strange power of amorphous muscle, the curious parasite strikes an uneasy truce with Shinji: it will keep him alive and strong so that it may continue living, and will help protect him from the other parasites that might not take kindly to Shinji's mind still actively working. Can Shinji gain the courage to face the parasites and protect humanity? And would it even make a difference if he did?

Both main characters have been possessed/altered by another being that they must keep in control and want to protect those around them from other beings. 

GabiiTachibana GabiiTachibana says...

Both series feature a protagonist whose body is taken over by something inhuman. These creatures' mouths and eyeballs appear on the protagonist's bodies, which is just one of many gory elements in both shows.

LamiaNymph LamiaNymph says...

Both series feature the main character sharing a their body with an inhuman creature, that said creature grants the main character with special abilities.

Both also have elements of body horror and just gore in general.

Shazzybee11 Shazzybee11 says...

Both include supernatural themes as well as action packed scenes. Very similar bodily experiences although they follow fairly different plotlines. 

nzingaauset nzingaauset says...

As has been said, it deals with a main character dealing with a being living within their body that is hostile to them. This is the scifi equivalent to the supernatural Jujutsu Kaisen. The story has a lot of suspense and action as well.

My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

  • new school environment
  • teacher/parental figure takes the main character under their wing to help them tame the new power
  • monsters? kinda, sorta
  • school tournaments
  • the antagonist is untouched by the season one finale (in fact they are scheming and gaining power)
  • interesting characters imo

Both protagonists are at a school and encounter this villain organization that they continue to have fights with throughout the season. Both protagonists also continue to level up through the help of mentors and upperclassmen.

jujutsu kaisen is a fantasy kind of anime, and so is mha, moreover both have similar starting plots and both take action in a sort of highschool.

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Itadori's character really reminds me of Ichigo Kurosaki. Also the fact that they both have someone inside them.

Both are very similar supernatural animes where the protagonists joins a group that fights demon like monsters, that only members of the group can see.

Jujutsu was inspired by bleach so why not check that out? In bleach Hollows represent Curses. And the whole Bleach is just amazing. Mc, side characters

niotabunny niotabunny says...

if you're looking for an anime that surround a weak to strong guy, someone that didn't ask for what he was handed, but got it anyways and a situation where there's two versions, then look no further.  each contain magic, weapon usage to battle against an enemy that only a select few can see, with moments of comedy, action, drama and even romance.
