Coud is a young sky pirate who discovered a girl with mysterious powers on what had seemed like a routine mission. Ren has the ability to lend Coud bizarre fighting capabilities (his arm turns into a giant blade of some sort), being part of a race of beings called Edel Reid, but being the possessor of a stone called the Elemental Gelade, she has powers even beyond the norm.

This is a manga I'm following very closely. After watching the anime, I felt something was missing. Something very big, and that was more character development and plot development. Only watching the anime did not satisfy me, so I obviously tracked down the manga when I heard it was being released in the US.

To my surprise there were some differences between the anime and manga. The manga is more, how can I put it, edgy. It has the ability to do what it wants more then what the anime would have. So you get to see more skin, and a bit more fanservice. (This read more

Action, adventure, romantic-comedy is what could be used to best describe Elemental Gelade. Yes, overall Elemental Gelade (or Erementar Gerade for you engrish fans out there) is a bit of a mixed bag, combining some of the most popular genres into one solid story. Trying to put comedy and romance in with an action adventure can sometimes prove too much for a story, and completely topple the plot… but overall Elemental Gelade holds up quite well. However, exactly how well it holds up is what we shall look at now.

Probably the most interesting and obvious things Elemental Gelade has to offer is its setting. It read more

Manga: Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE
Both are an action/adventure with a slight romantic and comedic element. Both stories center around a group of five, trying to protect a "princess" of sorts.  
reportRecommended by Suu
Manga: Kurokami
Shounen series, with extremely good art styles, about a contract between two people: one who fights, one who gives the power.
Both have action, magic, drama, romance, and even some bloody violence.

Manga: Shitsurakuen
both about people who use girls as weapons

Manga: Soul Eater
Both shounen action/adventure series.
Both have humans that become weapons wielded by other humans.
They both have similar comedy.

Manga: Recast
Both Elemental Gelade and Recast are great action/adventure manga. There is more fantasy in Recast. Though it only has 6 volumes, it is a great adventure! Both have great characters and are funny.

Manga: Seikon no Qwaser
Exciting, worth-reading shounen manga that involve contracts, fights, magic, and super powers.
While one is an adventurous journey, the other is mostly set at school.
EL has a bit of very light ecchi here and there, but it's nothing comparable to SNQ.
Both have plenty of action, nice characters, and wonderful art.
