In general its almost like deathnote in the since that it is more around brains in specail powers and brawn. Also the main character Math (nickname) is unlike any I have seen yet cool, sometimes a bit insane and likes older women haha he even goes as far as to hit on his friends mom. Also there are some nude scene's in this manga that is why I put it at a 9 given that they didnt have much build up to that part. Also for a person who is just starting on a manga it has a look as if he has been drawing read more

Both protagonists are using supernatural powers to become someone prominent in life, someone who has all the authority to make a change. Eventually both main characters get a team together that helps support them to achieve that goal. Both manga's share Drama, Supernatural, Psychological, and Seinen genre components.
Both series deal with a main character having an unusual gift and another character, who upon noticing that gift shares his opinion on how to make the best use of the gift. In other words both series revolve around a character who has some kind of special power and a clever friend who sees the potential that power can do. In Sensen Spike Hills it is less supernatural with the gift being his ability to pickpocket while in Destroy and Revolution it is a power called "Oneness". Also their goals differ quite drastically however both share a similar rather melancholy tone. It is important to note that in Destroy and Revolution their is no minor romance aspect to it as well as in Sensen Spike Hills the subject matter is somewhat more mature and aspects due to the fact that it deals with drugs and sex.
In both manga the tone is rather dark, hopless and somber. Both series showcase a main character who doesn't know what to do with their lives and live a very apathetic life until the introduction of a rather "spunky" and eccentric girl shows up. In Yesterday wo Utatte the female lead already likes the MC and tries (although usually in vain) to win his affection while in Sensen Spike Hills the relationship sort of happens whether they truly have feelings for one another or not. Also it is important to note that Sensen Spike Hills, while sharing a similar tone as Yesterday wo Utatte, is a bit more mature as it deals with subjects such as sex and drugs.
Both share this rather somber and hopeless tone, with "young-ish" characters who are already jaded. In both series the main character is changed by the introduction of the female lead for the better (relative to the plot, not necessarily better legally wise in the case of Sensen Spike Hills). The biggest differences are in the plot, with Inu Neko Jump being about regaining some former passion for long jumping in college and Sensen Spike Hills being about stealing the answer key for a college entrance exam. While sharing a similar tone throughout the majority of the manga Inu Neko Jump has rather "safer" subject matter whereas in Sensen Spike Hills both drugs and sex are brought up however are only a very minor part in the manga.
The main trio's relationship (and character designs, in terms of the guys) is SOMEWHAT similar to that of NHK. A loser(ish) lead gets pulled into a plan to save himself from being a nobody (NHK = hentai game creation; Spike = exam question theft) by a glasses-wearing intelligent fella, friendship blossoming between the two and an ever-so-slightly crazy girl in the middle of all the psychological foreplay/characterisation. The plots are different but there are some definite similarities.
