*Spoilers Ahead*

So, basically, it was late at night, and I decided to watch some anime. This caught my eye a while ago because it looked like some genderbended version of D. Gray-man. No, I was not expecting D. Gray-man or anything similar to it--simply watching characters you know run around as their genderbent selves is pretty fun. Truthfully, I had a feeling it would be bad... but this really outdid itself. I could not differ the story from the quality of Quizilla Fanfiction; if you don't know what I'm talking about, spare your intelligence and just trust me--it's pretty awful.

First of all, none of the read more

Okay. So I've only watched the first episode, but I'm not very impressed. I just pray that the manga is at least better than this.

vv SPOILERS AHEAD (sorry) vv

These guys basically make me think of power rangers, if they were all very feminine, and liked wearing miniskirts instead of spandex. Ever since the starting out of the episode I was lost. The stuff that happened just didn't make any sense at all, and the characters I swear had personality disorders.The miniskirt brigade seems to be some BA army guys starting out, but then turn into these weirdos, that lay on tables asking if they are read more

Okay so this entire OVA was really... weird? It literally didn't tell us anything about the story (which it obviously can't go into detail about anyway since it's an OVA but a little bit of background would've been nice I guess) and it was pretty oddly paced too. The animation was decent, which is probably the only thing it has going for it at this point. If they come out with a full series for this I might watch it, but I still can't really get over how they're all wearing skirts over pants for some reason. Also, the voice acting was pretty good.

This review is based only after the first episode. I never read the manga so don't know much about it. But after reading the plot i said was an interesting Ova and when aired i waited the subbed... Took a long time but at last came. ( thank u to the subbing group)

Story...from plot sounded interesting and suited my taste something like D. Gray Man ( might be off) or 07 Ghost, they seems alike in this area. But when the anime started was how to say way faster in my opinion and didn't revealed nothing much .... Might show more in the next episodes read more

Shoujo harems with similar art styles which both take place in similar European style towns. The feeling they give off is similar and they have a similar mix of comedy and drama with some action. 
reportRecommended by Asfaria
Both animes have 'knights' or 'purifiers' with holy supernatural power that battle with demons and people know of the demons existence. They also share good graphic and bishounen characters. The differece is that Neo Angelique Abyss emphasizes on the main heroine and her thoughts and twists her somewhat ordinary life in adventures. While in Goular Knights all the main characters already know of their power. The series also have a similar reverse harem feeling, but in Goulart Knights the female heroine is just a kid, who is temporarely helped by the knights.

action/supernatural with some guy pulling weapons out of other people. 
reportRecommended by cliveshiki
Both anime have bishounen who try to help a girl, they do whatever they can to solve her problem. Also some of the guys have similar personalities. They also wear uniform in both.  
reportRecommended by Faylicia
The story is similar with there being creatures that attack humans and a group of people able to fight the creatures with supernatural abilities and both series are set in a fictional European setting.

In the case of DGM, Exorcists use their Innocence to fight Akuma and the Millenium Earl while in Goulart Knights the Goulart Knights use their spirit and Holy Grail to fight the Archon.
