Black Butler

Black Butler

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

Victiorian London settings with morally gray main characters who are nobles and investigate crimes. The villians are often fellow nobles and solving the crimes often leads to the death. While Moriarty is grounded a bit more in historical fiction, Black Butler aligns to the supernatural with demons and such. 

NeiJuzzuo NeiJuzzuo says...

They have similar time/era setting

Art is magnificent in both animes

Stories are different, but they have a similar feel

Boht are MASTERPIECES

Gavia Gavia says...

If you want more murder and mysteries in Victorian England, featuring characters of the morally grey variety, look no further. The character designs feature a lot of beautiful men, which will further attract (pun fully intented) similar audiences.

Both take place in 19th century England. Both are dark anime with a lot of murder involved. Both have hot male characters.

sandbecca sandbecca says...

Love! both this anime is mysteries and like the night. the characters is cool and like mystery. 

Black butler dident i first love but when i come to season 2 and 3, was when i really was getting intressed for it. also the ova with the murderor case and the movie "Atlantic" is to die for.

Moriarty the patriot is a anime you want to know what happens next and how it will play out. i think why i find this anime most intressting is beasuse of the main caracter.

I think you will love or like either one of this anime you will also like the other.

BeingMe BeingMe says...

Both anime are placed in similar time and place- 19th century England. They are dark anime with a lot of murder involved and death in general.

Main characters are the one who are nobles and investigate crimes. I can see how they are both kinda comanding others.

Death Note

Death Note

Have you ever felt like the world would be a better place if certain people weren’t around? Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die. With the aid of the death god Ryuk, Light takes it upon himself to rid the world of its corruption, ushering in a new era of purity one death at a time. But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...

Death Note and Moriarty the Patriot have similar main characters. While technically a villan, they have a strong moral compass who will stop at nothing to accomplish their goals.

NeiJuzzuo NeiJuzzuo says...

They are both fantastic mysteries with interesting plot twists.

Both have dark tone and are masterpieces. 

PowerOfWilson PowerOfWilson says...

The plot, of both animes   just   so SMART !!! death note=so smart

moriarty the patriot=smart

if you love one.....    i tell you, youll love the other!

CrazyTP333 CrazyTP333 says...

Any Deathnote fan is sure to find something to love in Moriarty the Patriot, and vice-versa.

As an exercise, can you guess the anime based on the plot synopsis? The story follows a murderer who wants to bring about change to the world by killing those he sees as unfit, while a master detective tries to catch him in an effort to fulfil his own curiosity. 

Both Deathnote and Moriarty the Patriot would fit under the description given. While there are some distinct differences in the relationship of Light and L and Moriarty and Holmes (most notably changes that appear to be coming in the second season), that makes it more kin to the relationship between Makishima and Kogami in Psycho-Pass, Moriarty's and Holme's relationship is dynamic enough to surely remind you of the dynamic duo (Light and L).

BeingMe BeingMe says...

At the first sight I felt the similarity between L & Kira and Moriarty & Holmes. Like high IQ games between them which makes the swou exciting. Both are fantastic mysteries with kinda dark plot twists.

the fights have a similarity, yk? its just as though theyre fighting with swords but theyre not, theyre playing mind games

The Case Study of Vanitas

The Case Study of Vanitas

Rumors revolving around The Book of Vanitas, a clockwork grimoire of dubious reputation, draw Noé, a young vampire in search of a friend's salvation, to Paris. What awaits him in the City of Flowers, however, is not long hours treading the pavement or rifling through dusty bookshops in search of the tome. Instead, his quarry comes to him...in the arms of a man claiming to be a vampire doctor! Thrust into a conflict that threatens the peace between humans and vampires, will Noé cast in his lot with the curious and slightly unbalanced Vanitas and his quest to save vampirekind?

The single episode mysteries that are solved at the end of every episode. The suspense, revenge, the crime solving, poverty, ulterior motives, and a single man who controls everything within his grasp.

NeaRetrogamer NeaRetrogamer says...

Both anime follow a group of people with the ultimate aim of radically changing the existing system, eradicating the artistocracy-based system in Moriarty, bringing down the walls - which could even result in the end of the monarchy - in Princess Principal (though in Priness Principal only the 2 main girls are aware of this aim for now, whereas in Moriarty the entire team seems to know it). Also both take place in a 19th century/Victorian England, albeit in Princess Principal the setting is a steampunk one with elements of alternative history. Finally both have a fair deal of intrigue and action (though Princess Principal gives more emphasis to the action, and Moriarty to the intrigue).

kawaiipotatochan kawaiipotatochan says...

Both shows follow the "villain" of another work. I also feel the art, music and the overall impression are similar. Both MC are also quite OP, but in different ways: Moriarty in brainpower and Kyousuke in psychic powers.

If you like one of them I would recommend giving the other a try.

Because their both revenge stories and their about outstarthing the bad guy. It both shows that society isnt always good and somethimes you need to do bad things to get justice. And for some reason they just give off the same vibe. This isn't a serious recemondation. But when I was watching Moriaty the patriot I just thought about how similair the two stories actually where but also diffrent. So yeah, this is my first time writing a recemondation so please dont be mad!
