Tenkuu Shinpan
While Tenkuu Shinpan doesn't feature game elements, the main female protagonist does find their own life at stake in an unknown world. Both series crafts survival horror elements by exploiting elements of violence, suspense, and death. The main character has a will to survive and goes to great length to discover the aimless mysteries of their circumstances. There is a thriller-like feeling for each chapter as we find out more about the story and realization that not is what as it seems. Recommended for fans of survival horror fiction.

Akatsuki no Yona
Both set in historical times, where the heroine traveled around to look for companions. However, the heroine was someone from modern world. She came from other world, and was named as a priestess that'd bring happiness to the country she descended on. And she began gathering her destined warriors but it wasn't an easy feat. Like every other manga, a villain has to wreck everything.

Unlike Akatsuki no Yona having a subtle romance getup, Fushigi yuugi romance line developed in a relatively fast pace. The manga was published in the 90s but it's definitely one of my favorite manga. It has anime too.

Not to mention this manga made me cry.

I have only read five chapters of Black Clover but there are some similarities. They are both shounen mangas where characters use magic.

Hakomari has a rather dark and mature tone particularly aim for teens-adult while Kokoro connect is a little bit light hearted. With its obvious romance oreinted genre, it particularly aims for the younger readers.

Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
These manga are both very dismal slice-of-lifes with endings that verge more on the precariously reassuring than happy. The feature characters are all dysfunctional (in a "something terrible happened to me in the past" kind of way) and just trying to get by in the world. I would chalk both of these comics up to manga versions of Grave of the Fireflies: the best mangas that you never want to read again.

Onanie Master Kurosawa
...then you might like
Koe no Katachi
Bullying, guilt and redemption.

Bullying is a taboo subject matter in fiction. Even more so when it is the main character of the series him/herself either doing something that is perceived as bullying or just outright bullying another person. No-one wants to make their lead characters unlikable and hurt their sales, after all. And there can be few more distasteful acts than ejaculating on a girl's clothes (Onani) or abusing a disabled girl (Katachi)!

The true similarity between these two is how their respective anti-social leads go on 'crime & punishment' paths of redemption after doing despicable things. They both find themselves being bullied in a sort of karmic response to their own actions and eventually grow after the guilt sinks in; culminating in romance. It's an interesting brand of characterisation where the lead characters are broken before being re-built into something more than they were originally.

There is also noticeable romance present in Ayakashi Hisen. On the other hand, Donten ni Warau has a good amount of focus on family relationships and subtle romance.

Trigun
When I first started reading Zombie Powder, it had that "Bang! Bang! Shoot-'em-up" Western feel. Trigun {all series} is also a Western-y manga. Both stories are set in the future. Both main characters have large bounties on their heads, with mysterious weapons and arms. However -- Trigun's main character, Vash, is a little more comedic than Gamma. They have the same stock characters {someone who follows them, their "partner in crime}, and I think if you like one, you'll definitely like the other.
If you liked
Soul Eater
...then you might like
Rustblaster
Both Soul Eater and Rust Blaster play with the idea of people being able to turn in to weapons. With Rust Blaster, transformation is a little different, though. But if you like fight scenes like that, then one manga is just as interesting as the other. Rust Blaster and Soul Eater also have the theme of not losing yourself, of fighting forces out of the character’s control and staying true to themselves. Although Soul Eater doesn’t have vampires in it, and Rust Blaster does, I think if you like one, you should give the other one a read. If Rust Blaster lovers are looking for something longer to read, check out Soul Eater. If Soul Eater lovers are looking for a something short and sweet, try Rust Blaster.

Kuroshitsuji and Rust Blaster are by the same person – Yana Toboso. If you liked the style and character design of one manga, you should read the other. Both mangas have a gothic look and feel to it. There’s also a contract formed between a human and a supernatural creature {for Rust Blaster it’s a human and a vampire, in Kuroshitsuji, it’s a human and a demon}. Some of the characters in one manga have similar traits to other characters in the other manga {I’ll let you draw the matching lines}. There’s also a lot of feathers in both…
If you liked
Vampire Knight

Rustblaster
Vampire Knight and Rust Blaster aren’t too similar. However, if you like the fact that Rust Blaster took place at a co-ed school of humans and vampires and that the main character didn’t like drinking human blood, but lost himself for a bit when he did, then you would like Vampire Knight. It goes more in-depth and deals with those two themes specifically. Vampire Knight is more girly, though, and it’s a lot longer.

Vinland Saga

Otoyomegatari
Both are historical fiction manga with incredibly beautiful, detailed, and well-researched artwork and strong character development. However, they are also radically different works as well. 'Vinland Saga' is brooding, philosophical, and violent- every bit the 'Saga' it claims to be. Meanwhile 'A Bride's Story' is a far more relaxed 'Slice of Life' romance with only occasional visits into more dramatic territory (the difference being that we're getting a slice of life in 19th century Central Asia). Both will be enjoyable to fans of historical fiction who appreciate authors that clearly spent considerable time doing their research. Yukimura Makoto and Mori Kaoru need to have a manga-baby.

Given the course of their development, we also see relationship building between the main leads. Romance is also evident; although more slow paced in Okobore Hime to Entaku no Kishi. There's also the classic shoujo atmosphere that is hard to ignore with the style of their presentation.
