They have an quite similar overall feeling. Both mains are fighting with there friends against an enemy using somekind of super power.
hunt soul and both have the same styles.
Good organization versus evil organization, lots of characters with various weapons. Soul Eater is however much more lighthearted than D.Gray-Man.
Another hunter hunt demon anime ~
Liek D.Gray-Man, Soul Eater has people who have supernatural "weapons" that they are compatible with. Defeating evil beings is their duty. The weapons can "level up" like the Innocence contained in the exorcists'.
They both deal with fighting off bad soul's to protect the good ones. While one has more of an emphasis on souls itself. Humor in both is very similair.
Both stories involved the theme, supernatural and good vs bad. In D.Gray-Man, the exocists are fighting against the akuma, noahs and earl who wanted to bring the world to an end. While in Soul Eater, the meisters and their weapons are fighting against the demon god, witches and humans who have turn evil.
These two anime have a similar feeling.
It's sorta dark and it's full of comedy and action. If you like D.Gray-man then you will enjoy Soul Eater too. :]
Both about an organization of people with spiritual abilities that are supposed to destroy evil spirits
They are similar because they both have teams that attack demons for innocents but in soul eater there after souls
I really recomend to peeps who have watch soul eater to watch d-gray-man!!
They are really similar in how the anime ends. They both have supernatural powers and trys to fight off a same enemy which reborns or takes a long time/hard time to defeat.
The art, humor, action and story is pretty simialar to each other and there both also made by studio Bones.
Well both need soul to create a weapon...Crona's weapon are made from blood.it's the same as Lena-lee's innocent that made from blood too(last episode). Both main character a gray haired that is Allen and Soul.. In D.Gray Man a person is stronger when the compatibility between he/she and his/her innocent is higher. The same thing with Soul Eater...in order to make a good attack the technician and the weapon must be at the same wavelength. .. it's quite the same.
They are both Shounen anime series, but with extremely heavy focus on the individual characters, and their progression mentally and emotionally, not just physically. Both have reasonable "power ups." All episodes that could be considered as "filler" seem to fulfil an important role in both shows, thus giving us few unimportant episodes. Exorcists and students are very similar, as they both fight 'demons' to save the world secretly. Both are reletively gothic in style, though D. Gray-man is much darker. They both have their serious and comedic moments. Both have AWESOME opening themes. Each character (Exorcists and students) all use unique weapon fighting styles and techniques, and the weapons tend to develop their own unique personalities, almost becoming characters themselves (In Soul Eaters' case, obviously, they are characters.) Both have eccentric leaders that give out missions (Lord Death vs. Komui) and both have tall, powerful, long red-haired, womanizing, alcohol-prone characters that have close ties with one of the main characters (General Cross vs. Spirit), as well as a crew of powerful fighters that come in and help midway throughout the series (Generals vs Death Scythes). Both series also have peculiar villains and intriguing antagonists that almost get as many fans as the protagonists (Ashura + Witches vs. Earl and the Noa). Also, they have practically identical English voice actors.
Cheap random demon entertainment!
Both shows have pairs of young fighters that work for an organization committed to fight demons. Also the ambiance and styling of both shows are similar.
They both have a dark action vibe and they talk about souls a lot
1. they try to save souls
2. part of orginization
3. same gloomy mood sometimes
4. funny most of the time
5. has some kind of relationship with music/piano
6. both have a common enemy of some kind (soul eater-kishin/witches d.gray-man-akuma/noah) that kill humans to be more powerful
7. THEY'RE BOTH AWESOME
Its another 50 eps longer than souleater, but its dark as well and although they dont get weapons that morph into humans like in soul eater its still just as good and they *evolve* is the word ill use to not spoil anything. through out the story. The charecters are quite indepth and youll grow to like them :s
On a side note : Both of these are somewhat like naruto / Bleach but completly different becuase there arent any fillers, and if there were then they were too well blended into the main plotline that i didnt notice.
both are shonens with a supernatural theme
Both animes deals with battling akuma's to protect the world. In D.Gray Man they use weapons called innocence as in Soul Eater the weapons are actual humans that turns into weapon to slay the demons. The atmosphere of the 2 animes are very similar in the aspect it can get serious or funny depending on the situation in a flash. Both animes have moments where darkness prevails (more like the sensation of darkness).
- They are both Shounen
-In both animes they fight demons in order to restore peace to the world
-They have a similar idea of using weapons against the evil
-They both have really funny and really dramatic moments in them
-THEY ARE BOTH EPIC
It just seems to click. They are pretty similar Allen, the main can't turn into weapons like Soul, but his arm can transform. In D Gray Man they kill evil demons or souls gone wrong too, but here they are called "akuma". They both go after similar goals, to destroy the leaders of their enemies.
Good and bad side of power, organizations, hunting for souls.
Action, Adventure, Comedy, Shounen, Super powers
Essentially the same anime, but with different moods. If you're looking for a dark shounen with a strange sense of humour, D.Gray-man is for you. If you want a lighthearted shounen with a relatively raunchy sense of humour, go for Soul Eater. They are both action-centric anime about teenagers with unique weapons that are used to destroy corrupted souls.
These anime also share similar flaws, in that they both have quite a bit of filler (Soul Eater especially).
If you liked shounen animes
Both are generic shounen series on the surface, but are enjoyable regardless.
They both take place in a school dedicated to defeating the supernatural and both stories revolve around the students, mostly.
The main characters also both deal with being demonic
Both Anime styles are the king you would find in those nice child friendly movies you might watch for Halloween. They have a wide cast of characters and things get crazy as the plot progresses.
Ao no Exorcist - a young man who finds him self thrust into a world of demons and exorcist attending a school to learn to control his ability's to defeat demons and eventually satan...
Soul Eater- fallowing a couple who are teamed up to defeat demons and witches as part of their school assignments they are sent after deams and train to become stronger
What to say? Stories are mainly different, but overall they still share some mentionable point:
• well, let's start saying that they both are famous shonen that share the same action, fantasy, supernatural genres
• both evolve around special schools/academy who teach our characters how to use their powers
• both have a various number of characters, be it protagonists or villains, with strong and likeable personalities
• both stories deal with defeating the evil, in SE are the witches and the Kishin (sort of demon), while in AnE is represented by the ultimate evil: Satan
• overall both are enjoyable series but there's one last thing to mention. Both anime end up having a "filler ending", or better say: they are concluded with something definitely not canon to the story of the manga. Yes i think you should be warned about this, as it's quite an important thing when it comes to anime adaptations.
That said, i think if you liked one of those you might probably like the other as well!
Both animes have student studing in a big academy to fight demons.
In soul eater they are demon hunter. In Ao no Exorcist they are demon exorcists and they go out slaying demons with teacher supervision sometimes, just like in Soul Eater.
The stories are very similar except in Ao no exorcist they have their own weapons, unlike in soul eater where they had the meister and "weapons" which were actually another person.
They both have a dude that thinks hes all that. They both have similar character. They are both about kids hunting evil and go to a school to learn how.
The art is very similar!
Both are exceptionally good;
and they both include an academy and demons! :o
the op. song/art has the same style as soul eater also the story is very similar .. both anime are GREAT !
The both animes involve two worlds in which the characters are related to. Te looks of the characters are also similar. In they both share the same geners.
Honestly, when I first started watching Ao no Exorcist, I felt it screamed Soul Eater. I mean, not only are the art styles similar, but Rin (the protagonist) reminded me greatly of Soul. Even then, as you continue to move forward through the series, you'll be able to make more and more comparisons. For instance, Faust is a lot like Lord Death, having that same wackiness.
There are a lot of other similarities, like similar humor and such. But regardless, you should take the time to watch this.
Similar animation, similar setting
Ao no Exorcist and Soul Eater are action anime that have a "let's team-up and save the world" feel to them. They both take place in a special special academy, which trains young teenagers to become fighters that stand against Satan and his henchmen in Ao no Exorcist, and demons in Soul Eater. The characters in both series are simply AMAZING, each having their own unique look, personality and fighting style. Both series also feature superb animation mixed with amazing action sequences that will make the viewer beg for more after each fight. If you are a shounen anime fan and you liked watching one of them you shouldn't hesitate to try out the other.
Both deal with a group of students in training to become great fighters in the war against demons/the supernatural. They have intense plot lines but are injected with enough humor to keep it from being too serious. However, the drawing style for Ao No Exorcist is a bit more wispy and edgy than for Soul Eater which uses a more cartoony style.
Both series features supernatural themes in a supernatural world where the main characters learn new skills. They are considered shounen and often or not, their battles incorporates such themes.
Both series has a lot of drama, comedy, and action.
Both series' main male protagonist also have similar personalities.
Both series also has powerful antagonists that puts not only the main characters and their friends at risk but the world as well.
Ao no Exorcist is basically poor man's Soul Eater. If you want to watch interesting fights and memorable characters, watch this instead.
Both anime involve demons/demon slaying, and both involve an academy
Both are shounens that in both the group of main Charcthers are in a school that teaches about defeating their enemies(Which is demons in blue exorcist and demons/witches/and other Halloween related things In soul eater)
Soul Eater and Ao no Exorcist are alike because both deal with gifted kids who to a school that teaches them how to fight things such as demons. Both have humor and main protagonists that like to slack off.
Both of these series can be very serious and very funny at times. They give off similar vibes about never giving up and how important friendship is.
The same kind of quirky humour for both, the same kind of brilliantly simple yet very well done animation. Both have unique characters, which combine to make a cleverly-thought-out storyline which is told in a similar fashion. Both great watches
- big comedy , power ful ..
They both have some what unique and abstract fight scenes.
Although one piece character design improves overtime
so if you start watching one piece I would say watch one of the
latest episodes first so you know what to look forward to XD
Comedy comes first for those who enjoy their laughs before anything else like me. Similar style of presentation with a lot of similarities. Soul eater looks like a simple comedy at first but like one piece drama and action can get pretty intense at times.
similar comedy and can be serious in some episodes but not in others.
The comedy is very similar.
And both anime have intense fight scenes, great music, brilliant humour and sad moments...just in the right places.
I for one love both :D
Both anime have a really really great story, and unique characters.. Special fight scenes in both anime, and always a 'funny' side.
Awesome char design (even if the style is different) for both series.
One Piece and Soul Eater have both the friendship priority for their story.
Those 2 anime are the best i ever found :3
Both are fighting shounens with a lot of comedy, much surrealism, non-sense powers and crazy attacks, like gomu gomu rocket, death cannon, etc.
I recommend One Piece as I would recommend the Dragon Ball Series. That is I would say it is a great beginner's anime. It has funny stuff all the way through its long number of episodes. It then begins to evolve somewhere in the 100's episodes and becomes fantastic with even better story lines and great battles. The emotion starts pouring out and I love it. I say Soul Eater is the crisper more serious version with a funny edge and One piece is the more funny with action edge. Both are great.
Both very good and very apelative
Both are really funny and the main character, Evans Soul Eater and Monkey D. Luffy are kinda strong and idiotic .......... but in my opinion, I wouldn't say Evans is as strong as Luffy. o well ... anyway .... these are both great adventure/comedy animes.
The fighting is pretty unique and also the comedy is the best.
both are FUNNY and full of action scenes
both have the whole friendship, stick together, never give up kinda thing
they are both funny but can have their serious moments too
Both have same kind of Comedy , Action , and Special Characters
Good story, rare and unique powers, anime shonnen, the fights are amazing! :D
both are frigin hilarious!
Soul Eater is more like a Naruto-ripoff from BONES, except...why would anyone ripoff from Naruto....?
Both have the same shounen-ness to them and they both deal with characters searching for power
They both have a light-hearted (and sometimes perverted) sense of humor, same style of drawing, same style of characters.
If you see black star and naruto you will find similiar clumsy character.Because they both have the same idiotic that alway's rushing into thing's without thinking first.they also have strong will & dream.That why i recomended this serial because they both funny,and if you like naruto series i confident that You also like this series.Please Enjoyed!
it has that kind of feel you get when you watch naruto. and plus its a great masterpiece.and it has a lot of action.
The art style for Soul Eater actually is rather similar to Naruto's in the fact that it uses rather thick lines and bright, solid colours. Even the tone of the anime is similar, adding light-hearted and funny moments in-between epic action. Soul Eater injects a bit more humour than Naruto, but they both do a good job of relieving tension with humour at the right moments. Both anime focus on building up the quirky characters (which are very lovable and memorable) as they progress further into their world and as they get into more fights. Both stories are essentially following the main characters getting stronger and maturing as they strive towards their ultimate goal.
Naruto relates to the character Black Star in Soul Eater very much(as mentioned by others)--the difference is that Black Star is much cooler(IMO).
Both animes have a similar relation with the characters being mediocre at first and eventually grow stronger. Soul Eater however is fairly more organized in episodes and actually has an ending(also, it didn't exceed over 100 episodes!).
There's lots of your humour and action just like Naruto too.
Some of the characters resembles each other like...
Black star and Naruto who thinks they're better than everyone else
Death the kid and Sasuke who are bad asses
maka and sakura who feels the need to be stronger
Soul Eater managed to pull quite an original story (unlike Nabari no Ou) but it too borrowed from Naruto, Black Star is Naruto with a different attire. If you like the character of Naruto it is almost certain that you will love at least one character in Soul Eater.
When watching Soul Eater i instantly thought "this is like naruto only a bit cooler" Both have characters coming out of a school where they are trained to fight at young ages and get put into dangerous situations leading to fighting some sort of ultimate evil.
There are a lot of resemblances between the two. Some of the main characters are like main characters from Naruto. Me and my friend joke around and try to assign a Soul Eater character to a Naruto character. So far we have matched Kakashi, Naruto, Sasuke, Kabuto, Orchimaru, and the Mizukage.
1. In Soul Eater, they have powerful wavelengths and they try to control it. Same as Naruto, they have strong Chakra and they have to control it.
2. Both anime have groups of 3: Maka, Death the Kid and Black star. And Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke.
3. Naruto and Black☆Star both love attention.
Friendship, betrayal, and power-ups.
The art style and atmosphere are generally similar.
Both have two guys that seem to hate eachother and are constantly trying to beat eachother, but when it comes down to saving the things they care about these two main characters make an unstopable force. there is also a ton of random things that will make you laugh in both series.
The simple yet colorful and appealing art style is what really draws these two together. Both also have fantastic stories and a menagerie of characters that are easy to fall in love with. They both utilize fanservice in a tasteful and humorous way, but also have their touching moments. If you like one, you're sure to like the other.
Fairy Tail is awesome and sol eater too, even if soul eater have a little bit more insanity, i strongly recomend you to see fairy tail!!
well its a shounen action type anime with awesome, very funny and unique characters it has a good storyline and awesome art and animation .If you liked Soul Eater you should try Fairy Tail
I don't know how to explain but they just feel alike. The way they kind of hint relationships but there isn't any. And the partner/group thing. Oh and Natsu reminds so much of Black Star. And things like Grays weird clothes off thing corresponds with Deaths Symmetry.
Both shows have characters with random and weird personalities. They can be insanely funny and serious at the same time. Both also are in a certain league or in FT's case, a guild.
Both series are fun and lively with a large and incredible quirky cast of characters that you can't help but like. They both use a similar style of humor that plays off your knowledge of the characters and their weird tendancies.
Both have a strong feeling of loyalty among the characters and a lot of action.
In both series, there's a sense of battle shounen involving the main characters against other adversaries that opposes them throughout each episode.
Both series' main protagonists are always looking forward to a good fight and hoping to improve themselves in their skills.
In both series, there is a school/guild that trains the main characters in various skills and from what they've learned, the members compete against others using those skills.
Both series features a lot of action, drama, comedy. They also have similar artwork.
Soul Eater and Fairy Tale are both adventure anime in which magic drives the plot. They have plenty of comedy which doesn't disturb action scenes; even in terms of art style they favor simple and very colorful designs. If you liked one you may like another.
Both FT and SE have blocky colourful animation. The storylines are brilliant, fun but I have cried at both... yes, yes I have :) Lots of action and magic/magical transformations- both have worlds which are detailed and unique. If you watch one, watch the other- both are really brill! :)
Both are shounens that surprisingly have emotion.Both are regular worlds but with a supernatural twist that draws the charcthers together.Both focus around one of the stronger and uniqer groups of a larger organization.
Both animes have a similar overall theme of the importance of friendship.
Both include a bit of fanservice; although, it is heavier in Fairy Tail.
Both have somewhat-typical shounen plots, but are enjoyable.
Natsu and Black*Star are very, VERY similar characters. Maka and Lucy are similar at times, too.
Finally, the artwork is similar. I thoroughly enjoyed both :)
Simular setting as soul eater: Shinigami fighting monsters who feed of human souls. Comedy, action and romance elements are also present in both series. The animation style is different though, soul eater has cartoonesk elements while bleach has a more common animation style
Hmmm... They both have main characters that have to fight against monsters... For example, Bleach with Hollows and Soul Eater with their 'demons'. Anyway, their plot are somewhat similar. It's about their main characters fighting for peace and things like that....
Soul Eater revolves around, thus far, three students and their respective weapons used to take out "seeds of Kishin" or wayward human souls. The first protagonist, Maka, wields a scythe name Soul Eater. She is the daughter of the current Death Scythe (the weapon used by Shinigami aka Death). The second is Black Star, a ninja, and his weapon of choice it Tsubaki, who can transform into various ninja weapons. The third student is Death the Kid, Shinigami's son, who wields Patricia and Elizabeth, a pair of guns.
The seeds, are very similar to Hollow. Bleach and Soul Eater also have the same uniqe weapon for everybody and shinigami theme!
They both deal with shinigami, spirits, fighting, and they both have transforming dealing with swords. In Bleach, their katana have powers and in Soul Eater, the swords are people that can make their body a weapon.
Besides being another action heavy series, Soul Eater also deals with safe caretaking of souls. The meisters are similar to the soul reapers in that they have a relatioship or partnership with their weapon, though their relationship isn't nearly as vague as the ones between reapers and their weapons.
In both Bleach and Soul Eater, super-powered students learn from even more powerful masters. The emphasis on unique weapons is also a similarity, as well as the two major themes of action and comedy.
FYI, I watch Bleach in dubs, but I obviously watched Soul Eater in subs. I don't know if this matters to anyone who sticks to one or the other.
If you think bleach could focus more on teenage drama, jokes, boobage, and general silliness, then this is for you. If you like how bleach can be very serious, then you will find this childish. I don't mean to sound to down on a show that I'm recommending, but it's prettymuch a ripoff of bleach's plot but changed around to appeal more to a younger and/or unisex audience rather than only males. Soul Eater has more jokes, and more fan service.
They both involve shinigamis and taking souls. In Bleach, they release the souls into Soul Society while in Soul Eater, their scythes eat 100 souls in order to turn into the ultimate scythe.
Soul Eater is basically bleach but with more emphasis given to the Zanpakutoh or in this case technicians' weapon.
Bleach and Soul Eater are the same in many ways, around human's soul and the main character duty......
Both Soul eater and Bleach involve defending humans from transformed monsters
Bleach(hollows) soul eater(kishin)
Both have an area where people are trained to fight these beings
Both involve using weapons that transform
Bleach uses Bankai , Soul Eater- Soul Resonance
Soul eater is more like an awesome version of the filler series in Bleach where all the captain's weapons had transformed
Similar animation. Great OST, action with comedy!
Both are action-packed shounen series with similar art.
Both have the same sleek animation XD...
This is similar in style of action and comedy... if you want thrill seeking action scenes with brutal detail of the fights wath this anime and it's outstanding comedy and plot... Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann will captivate your anime attention much like Soul Eater with great characters and almos unlimited action...
Similar frenetic art pacing and flashy combat. TTGL does everything Soul Eater does but better and with a little more adult flair to the story.
Nobody seems to have mentioned the fact that the soundtracks are done by the same composer - Iwasaki Taku
If you like Gurren Lagann, you will probably like Soul Eater because they have similar drawing styles, similar hardcore soundtracks and they just are both plain awesome!
They are both perfect shounen and shounen parody shows at the same time
both have the spirit of never giving up....TTGL just has WAY more spirit though...if u loved soul eater (tamashii no kyoumei !!) u've GOT to give TTGL a try!
Loud, full of itself, and way over the top... I love it. Both also are full of powerful mixed emotions.They have nothing directly in common, but they both strongly remind you of the other.
TTGL tends to focus more on the silly stuff early and then gets very serious while still being a little silly and way over the top later on.
SE Is silly but cool from start to finish, some parts are more serious than others.
Both of these are one hell of a ride so sit back and enjoy.
they both have an insane animation , madness and hilarious comedy .
also , they both have amazing characters (kamina & Stein FTW)
Both of these animes are pretty similar, they have partners that change into weapons. Also it seems that the weapons and person controlling the weapon seems to develop a love interest with each other.
The transformation of human to weopon ~ its like the transformation in Soul Eater ~
Male and Female fighting and people changing into weapons :D
Similar concept with human weapons and the main relationship's respect for one another.
Both of them are similar in the way of fighting. People who can become a weapon and are action animes.
Instead of that, both are funny and very interesting.
Both have human and weapons partnership, where one can turn into a weapon but the storyline is completely different. However, both have very light comedy (but Souleater is way funnier for me) and lots of fight scene and action.
In both series, the character's partner turns into a weapon. Both also has action, and comedy (but Souleater is way way funnier) romance is present in Elemental Gelade only.
Both are about using human who transform into weapons. But Soul Eater is more about a conflict with a main villain and saving the world while Elemental Gelade deals with love and the difficulties bewteen humans and the weapons, delving more into the theme of discrimination.
Elemental Gelade is similar to Soul Eater. The anime both contain weapon/people that have a special relationship with their handlers. Throughout the two series you have handlers and weapons growing and training together to harmonize with one another.
Both have merged souls into weapons and such.
It's apparent once both get into their theories concerning souls. Both have a great deal of focus on how two souls of completely different people work in unison to achieve common goals. Not to mention, both are funny as hell.
weapon meisters with their human-like-weapons and shamans with their ghost partners,easily transformated into weapon have much in common
In both there is fights. Both are shonen. Both have souls involved in the story. Both have similar main characters.
They talk about souls and try to aqquire more power to their own reasons.
Characters uses a partner companion who turn into a soul to become a weapon. Soul Eater and Shaman King is almost both Halloween Theme but Shaman King sticks more to traditional Japanese supernaturals while Soul Eater are mixed of European and Asian supernaturals. They both have humorous scenes and intense combat animation, though since Soul Eater is new, it got more cool combat moves.
Both are fighting and soul theme ones.
They're both great shows that share many similarities. I definitely recommend that you watch Shaman King if you enjoyed Soul Eater.
Since this anime is similar (i.e. being produced by bones and in the same manga publishing).
I found Soul Eater to have the same atmosphere as FMA. There are some episodes that are hilarious, and some that are just creepy. There's great character development in both of these along with epic fighting. The first few episodes are the intro, and then the story takes off afterwords. The art work is amazing (at least in HD) It's dark, comic, 3d, 2d in a 3d environment, and colorful. I'd say the main difference is that Soul Eater isn't as depressing. Both of them are great series to watch.
Both animes contain a lot of action, comedy, and something that the characters strive for, which is unrevealed until later in the story. i love both of these animes. perfect for people who like action and adventure. also, both have protagonists about the same age, relatively young, as Edward in FMA starts as 12, then the story moves forward to when he's 15 and Alphonse is 14. They gradually age, making note several times in the anime and once in the movie. Unique to Soul Eater, however, is the almost comical reference to witches, etc. and the fact that the characters themselves become weapons (though it depends on how you look at it, as Edward's automail arm can be considered a weapon as well as part of him/his body.)
An amazing anime, full of action! A perfect example of shounen, i recommend
Two of Square Enix's greatest shows and were also, along with Eureka 7, the first series to run for 51 episodes.
They both create the perfect balance between a gripping storyline, epic fights and appropriately used light-hearted humour. Each shows a great amount of character depth and growth and they both use characters with their own personalised fighting styles (eg. different types of alchemy and different kinds of weapon partners).
Also if you watch the dub you'll recognise a lot of Funimation's top voice actors in both. If you liked one of these I would highly recommend the other - they're both addictive!
while watching these i noticed that if you remove all the humor in them, they become seriously f*cked up, evil and sadistic, but they're both great anime and and the humor in these two is hilarious! the characters are very unique and awesome and the plot is great, although i was kinda disappointed with the ending of soul eater.
Both series have often creepy atmosphere, good and well developed characters, good mix of humour and drama (tough SE is a bit more centered at humour while Pandora is a bit more centered at drama), girls with Scythes, cool-headed male leads, interesting monsters, insane villains and are great at storytelling (in different style and with different topics, tough)... and there are even more similarities. If you have watched one of these shows, it is highly recommended to watch the other as well!
In Pandora Hearts, the people have "Chains" which would be like the "weapons in Soul Eater. They both have comedy and still can maintain in the main story line.
they are similar with the human weapon/ weapon meister thing and the contracted chains... they also fight weird looking creatures, has comedy and drama, similar characters.... uhmm.. i would say they have a pretty dark atmosphere but its different from the other dark animes like death note... its pretty fun to watch so i recommend these animes if u havent watched it =)
Pandora Hearts and Soul Eater center around a group of people fighting against some type of monster that's created from a dark evil. Each group is made up of a large collection of characters. Several character similarities can be drawn. There's Death the Kid (SE) and Gil (PH), Spirit (SE) and Oz (PH), and Maka (SE) and Alice (PH), just to name the main ones. Other character similarities are really small traits.
in soul eater there is humer and action. same with pandora hearts! in pandora hearts the charaters can be very serious and very entertaining at times. pandora hearts is very different though. some people compare pandora hearts to the movie alice in wonderland but the charaters are completly messed up then.
this show will most likely entertain the viewers. it is funny,and has action. the plot is confusing though. in pandora hearts some scenes can be very..creepy. i hope this helped.
Both Anime's have very thorough animation. Both feature wacky and developed characters.
Both have kick@$$ sound.
Both feature unconventional styles, fast pacing, and humor through exaggeration, as well as an abundance of hard rock music. Both also induce the same kind of "drug trip" sensation.
Any excuse to recommend FLCL, honestly though if you were impressed with the high pacing of the animation in Soul Eater and you thought the humor worked you owe it to check out FLCL. The stories are about completely different things but what Soul Eater did fairly well FLCL perfects in terms of animation, music and humor.
Both have that same style of over the top physical comedy, and the animation is quite similar in both.
both have quirky similar random humour (which is at excellent quality) and has simiar strange atmosphere to it, where it (in soul eater) is in a different gothic world whilst kuroshitsuji is normal life with many dark supernatural aspects (which also seem quite gothic). lots of action, some drama, lots of humour and great general anime :D
While hardly related these two seem to appeal to people who like a good mix of action, drama and comedy. Kuroshitsuji is based in England in the 19th century while Soul Eater is in another world all together, but both have fantasy elements that verge on the dark side (for Kuroshitsuji it's demons and for Soul Eater it's witches and black blood). Last but not least they both have great casts of likeable characters and both series feature beautiful animation in their own respective styles.
Ditto on the previous 2 recommendations. If you like one you should give the other a try.
They both have the grim reaper feel to them.
There is humor in both, the interesting quirky kind of humor.
The characters are similar each having a partner, Sebastian is with Ciel, and each of the students are partners meister and weapon.
They are each dark in their own way.
Both styles are very good and interesting in their own ways.
The enemies are unique to their own series.
The side characters provide humor and lighten up the mood from some of the seriousness of the actual story.
I totally recommend this. It's awesome!
Soul Eater is much longer and will probably reach its intended end (or at least I should hope so) while Zombie Loan was cut short and is uncertain, but Zombie Loan has some of the same elements such as a team working toward a goal to fight evil through supernatural weapons and powers, though in Zombie Loan it is to pay back a loan and in Soul Eater it is to become a Death Scythe. Both shows have shinigami and dark themes. The style of Zombie Loan is more typical of anime while Soul Eater has a Nightmare Before Christmas atmosphere with its bloody grinning moon and comical gothic designs. I would suggest Zombie Loan for the inconvenient times when a week is just too long between Soul Eater episodes :)
dark shounen animes with the same art style... and the death reaper
Both handle the shinigami topic in a shounen-oriented way. I personally hated Zombie Loan, and kinda hated Soul Eater since episode 25 or 26. Still, if you enjoyed one, you'll probabily enjoy the other.
While both series of the supernatural have different plots and stories, one thing I found to be very similar was each others character design and atmosphere. If you liked the art and animation of Soul Eater, then you will most likely enjoy Yumekui Merry.
Same feel, similar art style and both has some touch of non-sense.
The art looks pretty similar and the partnership quality of the characters!! They are just really alike! Even the name is kinda the same yumekui means dream EATER and then SOUL EATER! Its the same style and a weird, twisted story.
If you liked Naruto you would like Soul Eater because Its a bout 3 kids which are meisters and 4 weapons. Naruto is similar to the Character Black*star because Naruto claims he is going to be hokage and Black*star says he is going to surpass God. Also the Main Character, Maka is similar to Sakura. They both Bully their closest friends like how sakura punches naruto and Maka bullies her partner,Soul Evans who is similar to Sasuke also, Death The kid is sort of similar to sasuke. I don't want to spoil but it is really a good anime and you might be freaked out by the first 3 or 2 episodes but trust me you wont regret ^_^
Though the plot premise is different, Naruto and Black Star are little twinners. Also, the set up of a team of kids that are a bid dysfunctional and talented fighting against the odds is similar.
Celty has a death scythe and so is the other characters of "soul eater". It also has that same feel because its also a bit Gothic and a little weird and scary. Once you watch Soul Eater you should also watch Durarara! because these two are both good and awesome anime!
Both have a bit of a darker atmosphere, good action & fight scenes, and engaging characters. Both possess elements of the supernatural (Soul Eater obviously more so than Durarara). Both have well-crafted plot structures.
The drawing style isnt that different, and it also takes a non-serious approach for the protagonist to accomplish their jobs. In both cases, it also involves non-stop fighting between the lead female and males and also has a no brainer loud mouth as one of the main characters and other crazy, wacky supporting aspects.
Nobody seems to have mentioned the fact that the soundtracks are done by the same composer - Iwasaki Taku
Tweeny Witches (Mahou Shoujo Tai) is a bit more stylistic than Soul Eater, and with quite a more wild story telling pattern. But what's really striking similar between the two shows, besides dealing with the topic of witches, is the art design. Especially evident in the backgrounds and the ways the cities are drawn.
Honestly, this recommendation is more because of the art than the stories or characters. If you're a huge fan of straight up action shounen and not more wild storystelling, you might want to pass.
Both of these series are gothic in their art styles, and have odd styles to them, and are mild forms of the horror genera.
If you like the scenes in soul eater that were fights involving "Death the Kid" and his duel pistols then you will enjoy Black lagoon as this show is just over the top gun fights (with duel pistols)
Both series have humor, a hint of fanservice, serious moments and a ton of action. Outlaw star takes the path of a space-age protagonist on a quest which ends in an epic battle. Check it out!
Both animes are about pairs of people who have to fight together to defeat Demons/Extradimensional creatures. In Soul Eater one is the weapon and the other the weapon meister. In Freezing the woman can make a weapon and has special abilities while the man/boy can immobilize the enemy.
The art styles are different, though, and Freezing is more mature.
Gad Guard feels pretty much like the unofficial ancestor from Soul Eater. Both anime have a distinct look and directing and have eccentric characters. However, the plot from Soul Eater is superior in comparison with Gad Guard. But that doesn't mean you should avoid Gad Guard ! Both anime are great in their own way.
In both these animes, the protagonist is a female who is hunting demons (or Yoma's in claymore) to keep the world at peace. When Soul Eater goes into the main plot it resembles a lot that of style of Claymore (relatively dark).
Both animes have characters that turn into weapons, while Soul Eater tends to focus more on the fighting and all that Seiken no Blacksmith tends to follow more of the romance part of it while still adding in some good action scenes. So you could think of it like both series are trying to tell certain parts of the same story.
Super powered kids go to a school that teaches them how to fight.Hidan no Aria is more of a harem/action while soul eater is more of a shounen.The school in Soul Eater is always super natural while in Hidan no Aria only a few classes are.And in both shows the main Charcthers take contracts.
Both has shinginams in it that oversees the main Charcthers actions,But other than that they are pretty different.Death Note is mainly a mystery while Soul Eater is more a shounen.
Both of the main girls are played by the same voice actor. The humor in this show is quiet similar to one another. Both girls are also very peppy and try to keep a positive attitude. They both also keep something to hit someone with. For Sana it's a mallet, and for Maka it's a book.
In some ways, I find both of these series to be similar in which a human and their partner fights to accomplish their ultimate goal. Both series also have plenty of action although involving different themes.
Both have a person as a weapon. In Soul Eater a person turns into a weapon but in Guilty Crown, a boy takes objects out of people and uses it as a weapon.
Both are action-genre animes. I love the sophistication of the effects and settings.
Both have the story of pursuing one goal while knowing what magic/powers they have within.
-Both have team of 2 who have a goal to fight against an enemy
-Both are set in a fantasy world in a school environment
-Both have English sort of names
(Zero no Tsukaima-Louise,Tabitha, Frederica, Katie)
(Soul Eater-Elizabeth, Patty, Justin, Sid)
-Both have Comedy, Action and Fantasy
-Both have a tsundere female lead (Soul Eater: Maka, Zero no Tsukaima: Louise) who physically hurt their male partner (Soul Eater: Soul, Zero no Tsukaima: Saito
Well, the stories aren't really similar, but...
In both animes, the characters are in "pairs", and 2 people are partnered with each other. Whats great is that in both shows, all the partners have a great bond, friendship, and trust toward each other which makes them similar...
You'll probably like Toaru Majutsu no Index, if you liked Soul Eater and the other way round.
The plot may not be similiar, but they have similar flawless graphics style, cool and funny characters. (Index sort of reminds me of Patty Thompson at some points =D)
Also action and humour packed.
Beside Soul Eater being Dark & Negima being happy both deal with the idea of having main fighter & support fighter in a quest of greater power or abilities both are different(mostly main characters) but have the similarity of combat style of the mage/technician & weapon/partner humor is little similar but main similarity is both Technician/mage is looking to surpass there father in power.
Both KHR and Soul Eater has a group of main characters who are introduced one-by-one, and got together later because of some incidents. The main characters then encounter problems among themselves, and face-off with a common enemy.
Both anime also has the 'work hard/fight for the sake of their friends' theme.
Both of them including very good action and advanture. nI both of the series the main characters are in pairs, when someone is the "master" how telling the other one what to do or fighting with the other one, while the other is attacking or turning into a weapon.
Both of them really recommended and I gave to both of them 9+ (10 to SoulEater XD)
both have a similar surrealistic style (especially the zombie designs and Opening Animation) and setting, fighting against monsters, mixing of comedy and seriousness, very good animation etc.
It has the similar comedy/action feel to it, there are times when you don't realize the seriousness of the situation due to comedy situations.
♫same genres (Action, Adventure, Fantasy)♫
♫both are twisted not-your-average style story and action scenes hook you into the anime like crack♫
♫also, there are lots of quirky individualistic characters that just stand out from the average crop♫
Sasha's scythe reminded me of the death scythes in soul eater. The partnership between a Qwaser and Maria also reminded me of the relationship between Maka and Soul. They're both really similar without all the ecchi, even though Blair does have her ecchi moments. If you like the action scenes a lot but didn't like the ecchi parts, watch Soul Eater, there are a lot of comedic moments. The art is also really colorful in Soul Eater, you won't get bored!
WELL, it is obviously going to take some explaining on my part for this:
Genre-defyers. Does that make much sense?
AzuDai: When you hear "school life", or "slice of life", what do you think? Boring, typical old shoujo-y episodes of girls fawning over boys that never notice them and "schooltime antics" ensuing? Well, if you've ever seen AzuDai, you will know it stretches the "schoolife"/"slice of life" definitions to a breaking point, most with types of humour ranging from dark humour to outright crack. Simply put it is very unique.
Soul Eater: YEAH, IT'S A SHOUNEN. But not with overly long story arcs, characters constanlty trying to overpower each other battle after battle...and a "will to fight" (insanity) that for once, is not overused. Again, I stress unique-ness.
Therefore, I make this reccomendation not for similar storylines or characters, but for those out there who have either enjoyed AzuDai or Soul Eater and again, wants something that hasn't been done twenty times over.
master and weapon, solving different tasks (in soul eater for 'level up' purpose, in jing - mostly for fun), fantasy setting, a little similar art style. Both childish but interesting
