Kimetsu no Yaiba and Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist) share several similarities:

- shonen manga that focus on fun action;

- main characters use swords;

- main characters use fire;

- main characters have a sibling that is important to the story;

- a hunting demon organization;

- good artwork.

I think that if you liked one you'll probably like the other.

While the time periods are drastically different, there is a similar feel to both series as you progress and learn about their respective demon-hunting organizations. Kimetsu no Yaiba is a bit slower to introduce it's characters, but like Blue Exorcist, they all have unique talents and character traits that draw you further into the story.

I wouldn't say the violence in Kimetsu no Yaiba is graphic. However, I'd argue it's a bit darker than Blue Exorcist. (Spoiler free example: there is a scene where a demon breaks multiple humans' necks.) UPDATE: The violence got more graphic.

Soul Eater

Soul Eater

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!

Crimezone

Crimezone

The people of Earth live in a society where vampires aren’t just real but dangerous. Although humanity has been able to keep them under control and even take the night away as the vampire’s natural habitat, some of them have adapted. Hesperides, a relatively new breed of vampires, have adapted over hundreds of years in order to be able to go outside during dusk when the sunlight is at its weakest and feast on humans. Aburaya Shiro, a high school kid, lives in a town where there has not been a vampire attack in years, but adults keep warning them of going outside at dusk. Shiro and his classmates take this warning lightly and head out at dusk only to find out that one of their friends is a Hesperides. With all his peers violently murdered, the only way Shiro was able to survive was with the help of another, Ichijoji Eruka, who doesn’t seem to be human herself.

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."
