Manga Recommendations

If you liked

Manga: Complex
...then you might like
Complex
add
"New York New York" and "Complex" are two very different manga that, at the same time, have very much in common. In both we see the relationships develop from beginning to end, and we see them suffer from hardships in their love life and from the views of society. Even some of the scenes in the two series are surprisingly similar.

Both are heartbreaking and heartwarming dramas with many funny moments. The main difference is that NYNY has more "action" in it. I can't quite describe it, but it's evident upon comparing the two.

If you loved one, you'll love the other. If you cried during one, you'll cry during the other. I have never loved yet hated two manga as much as I have these two.

...then you might like
Hakushaku to Yousei
add
I know they don't really look alike, but in a way... they do. Both male characters are "perfect" (though the main girl later found out it's not like this in reality). Despite the female main characters described as not pleasent, they say the male's is much worse.
In both, you don't really involve with parents, despite the girls being underage (Kyoko is 16 in the begnning, while Lydia is 17) and the guy's parents also not an active part of the plot in the present.
Both women are naive, and in both the romance take time (in Skip Beat it takes forever. I mean, till now nothing really happened).

Both have to face endlessly with their past.

...then you might like
Kuma Miko
add
These two works are extremely different in terms of mood, but there’re some clear thematical connections. Both works deal with:
- Shinto and its rituals;
- An unusual twist on Shinto;
- The contraposition of the rural life and the city life;
- The fate of small mountain villages in this day and age.

The differences are many, but the main is that Kuma Miko is a slice of life comedy and Tajikarao is a supernatural thriller. Also Tajikarao is set on Kyushu and Kuma Miko on Honshu, thus it also leans on ainu beliefs.

Kokoro Connect
add
In general terms, both are very similar in that they are gender bender, supernatural mysteries with bits of romance and comedy on the sides about a group of five normal high school students who without explanation experience supernatural phenomena causes some of them to find themselves in girls' bodies. All five are main characters but it seems to focus on one more than others, who happens to be the most generic of the lot. As the phenomenon continues, each character reveals things about their family or past
Speaking more specifically, Maki and Inaba are very similar. They are isolated at first and deal with their problems caused by the phenomena alone until the others reach out to them. Even then they continue to be a bit far from the other characters but are open to them about their problem.

Manga: Black Cat
If you liked
Black Cat
add
Manga: Bungou Stray Dogs
...then you might like
Bungou Stray Dogs
add
I labelled the animes as similar as well. I've gotta say, when I originally read the manga it gave me the same feel as Black Cat did. There are some character relationships that are the same, such as Atsushi and Kyouka being similar to Train and Eve. There are story elements that have the same feeling to them, though not in a bad "this one copied the other" way. Both of these series are very good in my opinion (many say Black Cat's manga is much better than the anime) and are particularly worth picking up.

Both have nonhuman creatures (who seem to be normal at plain site) who've been thrown into a world where they're constantly fighting to live. The protagonists are alike in the whole fighting for their own humanity thing (though it's dealt with that quite distinctly). Both stories question life and death and what they really mean. Overall I found both series to have a similar appeal to them while simultaneously doing their own thing.

Well. Our main characters are pretty different. One is focused on foreign affairs while the other is a person who is more focused on improving working with Amon. At least near the beginning. I would say that they are close in age.

Our main characters are also surrounded by a group of people.

In both stories, those groups go around and solve problems for other people.

This recommendation probably sounds boring, but the to storys are really similar. As my mom says, "Give a book 60 pages." Give a manga about twice as much.

These 2 manga are the founders of the mecha genre, and they heavily influenced almost all super robot manga/anime that came afterwards (including Neon Genesis Evangelion, G Gundam, and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann). They have a very similar-looking art style and overall feeling. They're both relatively light-hearted, but they have plenty of GAR, manliness, and hot-blooded mecha pilots. If you want to see what early mecha manga/anime was like, go read either one of these manga.

Both are set in the samurai world (Edo period), but while Gintama goes for more of a Sci-Fi/Comedy style, Vagabond is a more Seinen/Historical oriented.
The two main characters have a lot of similarities, they fight with wooden swords, they are former soldiers at a war and are surprisingly strong fighters.
On the other hand, Gintama goes for a "Sazae-san" story style, where there isn't a lineal story line, Vagabond seems to have a clear story line. Also, Vagabond is an adaptation of the novel "Musashi", which is based on a real life samurai, Gintama is an original work.

One have elements from Sengoku Period, retelling the life of Miyamoto Musashi, perhaps the most famous and successful of Japan's sword fighters — Vagabond, and the other features the Vikings, with the famous icelandic explorer Thorfinn Karlsefni as protagonist — Vinland Saga. The background for the main protagonists — Musashi and Thorfinn — is somehow similar, skilled fighters that throughout their journey "finds" a new life to live and seek for redemption. Both series works with great emphasis on storytelling/characters development, and have an amazing focus on the historical details, not counting the great art and very realistic battle scenes (although Vinland Saga has some characters with superhuman strength).

Both Manga have a similar ambiance. While reading Ore Monogatari I kept remembering Orange and it made me want to read it again.

After the death of the protagonist's beloved parent, lives change as the princesses are displaced from their Kingdoms and forced into unfamiliar lands, keeping with them only one loyal subject. They vow to return, revenge fuelling their determination to become stronger. Their only companion puts their lives on the line for the future of this displaced princess, and along the way, develops feelings for her (Though romance is not the biggest theme in either of these mangas). Both princesses are seasoned with using the bow and are confident, headstrong heroines preparing a small army for battle. In Akatsuki no Yona, Yona's heroic deeds bring them around the country of Kouka, tackling small cases that lead to something greater. In Joou no Hana, Aki becomes a tactician for a country opposing the kingdom she was exiled from. In both mangas, you'll be smitten by their character development.

GAR with manly tears.
In a time of turmoil and harsh living conditions (edo post-industrialisation and post apocalyptic WW3 settings), a wandering serious MC, last of his line, heir of a deadly and the best martial art/sword style, is on a quest of revenge, against his natural counterpart, scheming villain sending hordes of skilled fighters after him, while he brings justice along the way in episodic stories.

Kozure Ookami is the better title, because it's less cheesy, more varied, the side characters are more developed, and the historical setting is well recreated, but both are great.
Hokuto no Ken was probably more influential and famous, for defining the shounen "genre".

Definitely play Kenshiro's theme while Oogami is rampaging.

Both are ecchi series running in seinen magazines, featuring artwork of somewhat similar style and premises which are suitably ridiculous. Whereas Prison School features an on-campus detention center for its protagonists, Hare-Kon's harem is a legally-sanctioned polygamous marriage - told mainly from the perspective of one of the women as opposed to the male MC. In either case, expect to get a decent amount of amusement.

Both mangas have a similar ambience to them. They both focus on the growth and development of a couple in high school. The side characters are well-developed, but they don't overshadow the main couple. Both story lines are mature in the sense that the romance is realistic. Also, both mangas' male mc is completely in love with the female mc. These mangas surprised me. I thought they would just be stereotypical high school romance, but the execution of the stories made it seem realistic and sophisticated in a way.

The art styles and focus on romance are very similar. The world and plot aren't super fleshed out, these are feel-good shoujo. The relationship between the characters is similar, though the characters themselves are different. The heroine finds the one person that will accept her despite her being different. He romances her for some time before she gives in.
