These mangas have similar protagonists who are in similar situation and have to handle with somewhat similar feelings and opinions. Good, bad, revenge and so on.
Both have genres action and drama. While SIPM is historical Saiyuki is adventure.
Both manga revolve around the Shinsengumi. Peace Maker has quite an in depth story of the Shinsengumi, more so than Because Goodbyes Are Coming Soon, which only focuses on the teams last last dying moments. Both manga are also quite historically accurate, although in Peace Makers case it is balanced by fiction. The same characters also feature in both manga, and although they are of different interpretation, you can spot a lot of similarities. Both are outstanding manga and are definitely worth reading.
Opposite sides of the Ishin-Shishi/pro-Shogunate clash of the Bakumatsu and, in Ruroken's case, into the Meiji period. Because Ruroken deals with the aftermath of pro-sonno joi activism and SIMP centres around Bakumatsu era Shinsengumi action, it's like they tell the same story from opposing sides. For anyone interested in Japanese history, it might be fun to try a different perspective.
