Manga: Kiba no Tabishounin: The Arms Peddler
Kiba feels like a more adult version of Tegami. They start off with a young boy who loses his family, and is taken around by a rather stoic adult. This adult works a maligned trade (as a letter bee, arms peddler). They explain that their wares are ambiguous: they can be used for good or evil. Weapons can be used to kill, letters can be used to tell lies or hurtful truths. The boy's eyes are opened to the truth of the world he lives in. Have a similar steampunk/Western style.

Manga: Shingeki no Kyojin
The settings are pretty similar: Letter Bee: people are corralled in 3 different areas based on class, those of higher class get to live closer towards the middle. People do not venture out of their regions due to Gaichuu which are large insects which steal peoples' "hearts". In Shingeki no Kyojin: There are 3 different areas or they call them walls. While it does not explicitly say that the areas are divided into classes, the king resides in the innermost area with the military police. The people do not venture outside the walls due to the titans that would kill them./> There is a lot of mystery involved in Shingeki no Kyojin and the nature of the titans as well as in Tegami Bachi and the Gaichuu's as well as the capital Akatsuki. read more
