both deal w the supernatural and have a sort of found family trope !! i watched jjk first and am reading cm second and am already seeing similaritied (but in a good way!!) both are still very different and i like both a lot :)

MillenialMage MillenialMage says...

They both aren't afraid of a little gore but both have main and side characters that are consistent and the powers are limited enough that it never feels like the characters pull wins out of their ass

AYA0204 AYA0204 says...

Both of them are battle shonens with crazy worlds and even crazier battles. They are thematically different yet when you've read both of them you feel like they are connected in a weird way as they give somewhat similar vibes. 

TheCautionBandi TheCautionBandi says...

Chainsaw Man has a more gory, deep, and rough take on the supernatural genre, but Jujutsu Kaisen shares a bit of the same vibe, though not close because it leans more into shonen while Chainsaw Man leans more into seinen.

SebastianC SebastianC says...

Jujutsu Kaisen and Chainsaw Man have a very similar premise and style, with Chainsaw Man being a lot more gory, but Jujutsu Kaisen is still pretty damn violent. Both manga also have similar art and characters as well. IMO these are the two best manga that Weekly Shōnen Jump have published so far.

wreckage2004 wreckage2004 says...

Both are super fire mangas , a must read ..Chainsawman is quite a bi ecchi but delivers a lot of action . on the other hand jujutsu kaisen is really good with overall plot 

neopentane neopentane says...

in both manga the protagonist is a normal human being but later get overpowered when a extremely powerful being enter their bodies.

the difference is that in case of chainsaw man that extremely powerful being is friendly to mc but in case of jujutsu kaisen its not like that

Almost the same concept with both MCs having been dragged into the dark unknown parts of their world. They both involve supernatural powers and creatures of the night.both have organizations hellbent on stoping the demons or curses depending on the manga and MC that are very driven. Also as of the time I typed both have anime so get to it

djangofettywap djangofettywap says...

Both supernatural shonen's that deal with themes of inherent nature and have good action and intereeting characters

animeraccoon animeraccoon says...

They're both shonen mangas with a bit of comedy and supernatural talents

With a similar premise, both Black Torch and Jujutsu Kaisen follows a guy with special abilities that is involved into a supernatural incident, then it is possesed by a supernatural entity and, later, he joins an organization that fight with that kind of supernatural entities.

ZafineCrow ZafineCrow says...

Both series have similar characters. You have your loud, stuborn main lead, Yuji Itadori and Jiro Azuma. You have your more huffy (kind of stuck up) femal character, Nobara Kugisaki and Ichika Kishimojin. And you've got your care free mentor, Satoru Gojo and Ryousuke Shiba. The characters along with the premace of MC ends up stepping to a world he was never ment to, shinanagins happen, and he's forced to work with a secret organization to try and figure a way to fix him. (Also, Sukuna and Rago, in terms of their dialogue, remind me of old men)

kkayeru kkayeru says...

As both mangas have their own unique traits, I can definitely say they are quite alike in a way. The story involves the main character, developing a new profound power, and thereafter joins a school for abilitiy users like them and uses it to defeat enemies who opposes their group/organization.

If you are looking for this kind of plot, then try reading one or the other.

ayaneninja ayaneninja says...

Both series have a main character who is generally nice and innocent, that also happen to share a body with a crazed, powerful soul. While not exactly sharing the same personality, both Sukuna and Demon Eyes Kyo do have some glaring resmemblences in how they go about situtions that arise in their respective universes. If you want an action packed manga similar to Jujutsu Kaisen, with secret organizations, creative battles and protagonists that share a soul with a powerful malevolent force, give Samurai Deeper Kyo a shot, it should be right up your alley.

Parasyte

Parasyte

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?

SebastianC SebastianC says...

While Parasyte is a seinen manga and is a lot more mature, it shares a similar premise with Jujutsu Kaisen. Both of the main protagonists want to protect everybody they know from parasites/curses. Both manga have an engaging storyline as well.

Bleach

Bleach

Ichigo Kurosaki is an average high school boy with a not-so-average ability to see spirits - something that hadn't affected his life much until a strange woman entered his room one day. Named Kuchiki Rukia, she's a shinigami who was sent from the spirit world to destroy a hollow - a dead-soul-turned-monster; and much to her surprise, Ichigo can see her. When the hollow suddenly attacks his family, Rukia intervenes and is injured in the process, leaving Ichigo to fight it himself. But when Rukia lends him her shinigami powers - which is forbidden - he inadvertently drains them away and has no way to return them. Now, Ichigo is a full-fledged shinigami who must juggle his studies with his newfound duty of fighting hollows; but having gained his powers through forbidden means, the spirit world isn't going to leave Ichigo alone. Ichigo and Rukia must keep their situation a secret from the other shinigami, or the consequences could be dire.

SquishyCat SquishyCat says...

Both of these stories have powerful main characters with inner demons who love to fuck with them. Both inner demons try and take over at every inconvenience and are stuck mending their host when they have to. Each main character also really wants to protect people at the expense of their own health.
