Fans of Full Metal Alchemist and Jyuushin Enbu will be familiar with a good chunk of the work produced by mangaka and series creator Arakawa Hiromu. As I've said in another review though, she is also noteworthy for creating some highly original and inventive one-shots.

Manga: Fullmetal Alchemist
Both are works by Arakawa Hiromu that feature slightly different takes on typical shounen action.

I find Kilka's and Goku's histories and personalities to be very similar, (hyperactive, called "dog" or "monkey" and loyal to people who only meant to set them free). If you're a fan either character I think you'll like the other too.

Manga: Muddy
Both are short shounens (Stray is a one-shot) concerning chimera research. In both, a man takes care of a chimera child.

Manga: Yowaito Nikki
Both are rather dark one-shot manga's set during an older year era during war, that has twists in them that one may or may not expect, but make both stories rememberable.

Manga: Demons of Shanghai
Both are works by Arakawa Hiromu, and both tend to play around with pre-existing concepts and notions.
