In both series, there's the theme of superpower in a world that has both criminals and those who stops them. The main protagonist from both series carries out tasks with their group in such a world. Both series' main protagonist are cold, powerful, independent, and sometimes sarcastic. Both series features action, drama, some comedy, and has a mysterious like background surrounding the show especially in regards to the powers used by various characters.

Both series plays the idea of a superpower theme involving a strong, independent, and tough main male protagonist. Thus, in both series, the male protagonist meets a female protagonist and the two form a strange relationship. Both series deals with power of fire as a tool of destruction. Both series takes place at a school setting and involves action, drama, and comedy. While Code:Breaker lacks romance, it makes it up with its more variety of supporting characters.

The theme of delivering justice to criminals is a theme present in both series. Righteousness are judged in both series although by a different method. The main male protagonist in both series are also quite independent and has a lot of skills in what they do. Both series offers plenty of action and drama. P-P contains more violence and a more serious theme while Code:Breaker has more a shounen style theme. Both series' organizations however has the theme of eradicating criminals/corrupt people in both of their worlds.

Main Character belong to a group which characters assassinate bad peoples to erase corruption in the city, in the name of their justice. The bad guy of the show is the Prime Minister in the two stories. Characters not hesitate to kill peoples who deserve it. The group of principals characters fight against other group who look alike (ex: Jaegers from AgK and Re:Code/Code Names from Code Breaker)

Similar: 1. Annoying girl enters main character's life. 2. Main character protects said annoying girl. 3. Main character starts to "like" the annoying girl. Differences: Mythical Detective Loki - Girl doesn't possess any powers (based in mystery with super natural with norse gods). Code:Breaker - Girl possesses a power (based in super natural with government).

The same plot where it involves people with special abilities who are into the crime fighting business, except in the old anime the guys there were sanctioned by the gov't to fight bad people, while in the new anime the guys there work as freelance often hired as P.I's or do personal protection.

Although an old anime. Code: Breaker really reminds me of Flame of Recca Rei Oogami mostly resemble Kurei's personality and demeanor. The blue flame of Rei and the purple flame of Kurei's Flame from Kureinai her beloved who was killed by the one who adopted him. Same as the sacrifice for each power that they have. Rei's sense of taste using his blue flame and Kurei's loveone as his Phoenix Flame.

Both can be funny sometimes, both have characters that have intentions of destroying a person/people, both have people that have strange powers, and I find that some of the characters in Code:Breaker are similar to characters in Yumekui Merry.

Similar superpowers, setting, wide range of characteristic heroes. But Hitori is more comedic, and Code Breaker is more philosophical. 
report Recommended by MenthaAquatica
A group of people fighting through a world full of darkness and secrets. A shadow that's trailing the world hidden deep within the society. A threatening conspiracy that no one ever knew. Code Breaker possesses all these mystifying elements much like how Zetsuen no Tempest does. And in this anime as well, powers not known to regular people plays in important role in the truth of reality that's operating far beneath the facade of normal daily living. And also, the story seems to revolve around a girl whose existence has something to do in the grand master-plan of things.

Similarities: -Strong MC (knows how to fight) -reverse harem i think?? In Kenka Banchou Otome the girl pretends to be a boy and goes to the delinquent school for his twin brother sake and beats everyone and become the boss. While in Code breaker the girl doesn't pretend to be a boy but also strong. She beats other guys even thought she is a girl.. If you like strong female lead, like in KBOGBB, you will also like code breaker.

To me these two anime's have a similar feel. I greatly enjoyed both of these series. They may be set differently but they are both great anime's. So to explain why: Main male characters believe in fighting for justice and to right the world. They both have an "order" in which the fighters are from and to which friendships are made. The main males teachers/person they look up to, go rogue, however not quite in the same way. Both have cute male characters and pretty female characters. One character from each anime have bright red hair. The main character is thought to be evil at first by another character. Other than this they  read more

Both protagonists believe in equality (eye for an eye), are dogs working for an organization government/military, find out the truth of everything, have special powers, and fight to bring justice. Both shows are addicting.

Similarities: Both involves pesky girl with special abilities messing with guy's life. Both involves a group of protagonist with special abilities. Both have the same bad ass antagonist, who proves to be a challenge for the protagonists. Dissimilarities: Pesky girl's special ability in one anime has a very dark side into it, while the special ability of the pesky girl in the other anime has the ability to help the protagonist. The pesky girl in one anime is irritating in the sense that she always insist that the protagonist follow the law, while in the other anime the pesky girl there is a bimbo. One anime has a little bit  read more

Similar action with dark organizations. Young characters with superpowers and similar urban settings. Both series have the same general feeling. Loaded with action and, at times, emotional character stories.

Battle shōnen with super powers, similar characters and a bit of comedy.

Girl finds out she has powers her family wants to kill her to control her powers, Code:Breaker is more a supernatural team of anti heroes and a shady organization they work for. Ceres the leading man also works for a shady company as well what makes this show similar to this is the fact the leading man in Ceres is similar to the leading man in this show killing with no remorse a anti hero someone who only understands the purpose of fighting. Both shows have a lot of action and are very fast paced but Ceres is more violent and Gorey another big difference  read more

The main character finds out the supernatural secret involving one or more of her classmates. She then is dragged into a supernatural mess to help the person or persons she happens to find the secret of. The person she finds the secret out of and others aren't particularly pleased that their secret is out, but there is not much they can do about it.

Both series deals with the world of crime and supernatural as the main male protagonist wishes to deliver their "justice". At the same time, another in both series tries to help people but in a different way. Both series' main male protagonists are independent, has a cold personality, and very confident in their abilities. Both series has drama, action, violence, and involves super power themes dealing beings with supernatural abilities who wishes to use their powers for their own ideologies. Both series' female characters also has a strong will to help others and be there for the main male protagonists.
