Both are just fabulous.

Spy x Family and Love is War both have such wholesome banter and I love how overpowered the main couples are(in a good way~). Somehow the authors manage to blend two completely different people into a harmonious relationship based on the weirdest similarities. But, while there is a nice dynamic in each, personally I see a lot more human aspects in Spy x Family. They are both overpowered, sure, but they do have their moments that work really well with how the story progresses. This is much different from some of the many overpowered-mc-reborn-gets-revenge types, where the main girl is talked up as this boss bish but acts like an antisocial tween in order to be more "relatable." I dunno, that's just my opinion. Anyways yeah both manga are lighthearted and cute. :)

Quite similar in the sense they both have intellectual aspects and the cute romance is the best

They are kind of the opposite of each other. In Spy X Family, the "Parents" slowly start to fall in love with each other. 

labman labman says...

Both heavily make use of mind games and similar, non-physical forms of warfare (spying, deception, intel gathering, etc), for comedy.

Both authors initially wanted to write/wrote a dark series rather than a comedy, and put their own unique twist on the genre instead.

Both feature hyper-competent characters (although Kaguya also focuses on their flaws to a large degree).

The art (particularly the shape of faces) looks similar.

Both are set in a world very similar to, but not quite the same as the real world. Spy x Family is set in what is basically Germany during the cold war, and Kaguya is set in today's time, except with some very slight modifications.

Both stories have thriller, romantic, and comedic aspects. The main characters both have ties to very shady and dangerous jobs and professions and get involved in fights and violence. The main characters are also multi-faceted and show different sides to their personalities.

Both are a little dark and have a perfect blend of romance, action, drama, intrigue, and a proper story

This manga is reasonably new but has a lot of potential! The premise is that a spy needs to go undercover as a family man to get close to his new target and successfully finish his mission. This leads to him basically picking two randoms (that are more than what they seem) and the manga is focused on them all getting to know each other while keeping their past hidden from one another. Features a cute girl, a badass wife, and a diligent husband. It looks very promising for a lot of feel good moments!

Both of these are hilarious wholesome fun, with a lot of the joke set ups in each leaning on the fact that the main characters have secret identities that the others are unaware of. Both effectively mix action and comedy, moving from cheering for your favourite character to laughing at their antics. They also have some of the best side eye and comical facial expressions around.

Spy X family is set in a cold war era Germany styled universe, where master spy Twilight must undergo a deep undercover mission to learn enemy secrets and prevent catastrophe. Todo so, he will need to infiltrate a private school for the elite. To do so, he'll need a wife (Yor, a famous assassin) and child (Anya, a telepath) to pull the ruse off. Only Anya is aware of each of her new parents identities, leaving Twilight and Yor to muddle along, trying to keep their other lives a secret. 

Eleceed is about a lonely boy call Jiwoo who constantly needs to move so that others don't discover he has secret powers. As a result, he lives in fear of discovery and his friends are mostly the stray cats in the neighbourhood that he feeds. Enter Kayden, a powerful awaken one (person with powers) who transforms into a fat ginger cat to escape a rough situation. Rescued by Jiwoo, Kayden explains that Jiwoo isn't alone, and beings guiding him through life as an awakened one, while everyone else is oblivious to this rotund op cat's true identity as one of the most powerful awaken arounded. This series really starts to hit it's stride after more of the characters are introduced, so if it seems a little slow/action heavy at the start I recommend sticking with it, it's really worth it.

Seriously, both of these have had me in tears of laughter, highly recommend giving them both a go.

These two manga have pretty similar themes! They're both about people living dangerous double lives and trying to protect the people they love. Both of them have really nice looking action scenes, and moments that made me laugh out loud. Oh, and they've both got psychic characters in them! But, yeah, I reckon that if you enjoyed one, you should definitely check out the other!
