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.

 If you want to read some dark comedy style manga then Black Butler and Pandora Hearts are good books to read.  The supernatural undertones in both series come out shrouded in mystery and even some suspense.  There is also a pleasant old fashioned feeling in regards to the clothing that bring the series to life.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

Both of these manga are based around the idea of a dark fantasy involving supernatural things from another world. In Pandora Hearts this is the idea of Chains and Black Butler, demons, shinigami etc. Also the idea around making a contract with this supernatural being is present in both. Another thing is that they appear to be based around the same timeline (which some people may find interesting.

They both have mystery, action, supernatural elements and great characters.

The series also have silly moments and dark moments at various points.

The mangas sometimes may have a similar feel.

Alice in the Country of Hearts

Alice in the Country of Hearts

Kidnapped by a handsome man with rabbit ears, Alice Liddell finds herself abandoned in an odd place called Wonderland and thrust into a "game," the rules of which she has yet to learn. Alice, ever the plucky tomboy, sets off to explore and get the lay of this strange land, intent on finding her rude kidnapper and giving him a piece of her mind (and her fist). But little does she know that she's wandered right into the middle of a dangerous power struggle involving just about all of Wonderland's attractive, weapon-happy denizens. And the only way for Alice to return home is to get acquainted with the lot of them?! How in the world will she manage that and still manage to stay alive?!

Pandora Hearts and Alice in the Country of Hearts play on the Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass theme in original ways. Without being retellings of the story proper these manga both draw elements from the Lewis Carroll story to craft their own universes. In Alice the shout-outs are integral to the very concept while Pandora relates to the novels in a less direct way that is mostly just aesthetic. There is plenty of adventure to both and take advantage of Wonderland's surreal atmosphere to further the plot.

If you like Karneval, you'll like Pandora Hearts. The art is almost the same as well as the as the atmosphere. The storylines are the only things not similar (Pandora Hearts has a "darker" storyline), but I highly recommened both!

They have the same kind of mistic alice in wonderland vibe and share a lot of similarities in characters.   

Crimson-Shell

Canal Canal says...

They're both from the same mangaka and they have a similar story and setting. Crimson Shell is like an early prototype of Pandora Hearts. There is an organization that has to deal with people infected by the disease of the Black Rose in Crimson Shell or with Chains from the Abyss in Pandora Hearts and the main characters are working for said organization.

If you are looking for an awe inspiring display of female power, look no further than Pandora Hearts and Black God. The drama and suspense is ever thrilling as the young girls try to get the heroes to release their power.

If you liked Are You Alice ?, you'll like Pandora Hearts and vice versa. Both are inspired by Alice In Wonderland and have twisted plots (both being rather dark stories). You'll also notice that their design is similar.

Pandora Hearts and Red Raven have many major similarities, yet at the same time they don't feel like knock-offs of each other when reading them.<p>Red Raven and Pandora Hearts are similar in that there is an exquisite and elegant, yet gritty atmosphere about them both. Both feature protagonists who are part of a wealthy "family" (or you could go as far as to call them mafioso), and they both deal with conflicts between two (or more) organizations (as well as focusing on personal conflicts between the characters). <p>Neither manga is "innocent" by any means as they both portray a more grim and dark reality than many action graphic-novels.  <p> That said, Pandora Hearts can be considered significantly more light-hearted in comparison to Red Raven.  <p> Pandora Hearts focuses more on a fantasy-world whereas Red Raven deals more with a realistic world.

Both are reimaginings of the classic fairy tale Alice in Wonderland.  They both take a darker view of the tale, and both are interesting reads.  If you like one, you'll probably like the other as well.

Both dark fantasy? Involving things that come from another world, taking out the human race (In Seraph of the End it is pretty much Vampires taking the life of humans just like how chains do in Pandora Hearts, using humans to get what they want). Also this idea of making a contract with a supernatural being in order to either help humans or help the other side, depends on how you view it. Anyway like one? Check out the other.

The idea of being part of an organisation that aims to kill the enemy in the story, chains in Pandora Hearts and Vampires in Blood Parade. I also found the dark fantasy aspects in both series were quite similar, the main character mainly being something you may not expect him to be and the main female having a similar idea behind her. But if you liked one I recommend that you check out the other xx
