Well, the main storyline is more or less different, but the way the characters are drawn very similarly, as well as action scenes and blood. Also Blood+ is a dark anime and so is Claymore, so it would be good for those who like/love dark anime (sorry for stating the obvious...). Anyway both of them have very deep story-lines so I thought that people who like Blood+ would like this, because I think of Claymore when I think of Blood+.
These two series have so many similarities that each of them can be considered an "alternate" version of the other... They're both top-notch anime series, so I'd say watch them both and witness the similarities for yourself
Blood+ has some similar elements to Claymore, such as the relationship between a helpless "brother"/"sister" and a cold-blooded killer of the opposite gender, that greatly sways either person's actions during the course of the show. In a sense , it's partially Claymore in reverse, here the purebreds go after the half breeds, but what matches these two up the most would be the high level of action, gore and dark mood that stays overcast most of the time. You'll probably understand once you start watching it.
Blood+ and Claymore have something in common, and that is both are killing off monsters. They are both dark and gory. Blood+ has a longer story than Claymore but nonetheless they are still jampacked with blood spilling monster slashing scenes.
Monsters fighting monsters. Sword wielding female protagonist fighting very bloody battles against the grotesque as she tries to discover herself and protect what's important to her. Lots of blood, dismemberment and decapitations, mixed in with some camaraderie and family bonds.
"OMGZ THEY ARE BOTH GIRLS WHO ARE NOT FULLY HUMAN AND BOTH HAVE SWORDS AND KICK THE SHIT OUT OF MONSTERS OMG RUN ON SENTENCES NO PUNCTUATION!"
- Almost every 16 year old with a keyboard in America.
However, there's some truth to the above statement but I'd like to get into Blood+. If you really liked Blood+ and thought the story was riveting, loved the gore and the fight scenes, and loved Saya as a bad ass monster killing female main character, then you'll absolutely LOVE Claymore. Now, what I said about Blood+ is giving it a little too much credit. Don't get me wrong, I liked the show, but I just felt that Saya didn't take charge enough for me(at least till the end) and I cringed at a lot of the dialog. There was also just way many too cliche moments and typical "feel good story" music during the first half of the series. It's at least underwhelming for an anime with an R rating.
Claymore's R rating on the other hand is well deserved. It is WAY more violent and bloody than Blood+ and the langue is a lot more coarse as well. Claire and Saya both come into their own a bit midway into the shows but Claire has a lot more depth to her in my opinon and is a lot more entertaining. Both girls are trying to rid the world of monsters, even though they are both types of monsters themselves.
All and all, If you liked Blood+ and don't mind a shorter series with more violence and swearing, then chances are you'll love Claymore. If you watched Claymore first and are expecting a lot from Blood+, chances are you'll be let down a bit, but will still enjoy the series. read more
The main 2 similarites is that only a certain breed can kill these monsters even thou the humans can't technically. They are both serious girl characters who pursue monsters to keep the people safe but eventually find their own purpose.
These two series are like siblings with many similarities that can be drawn upon.
Both Claymore and Blood+ involves a lot of action dealing with the supernatural specifically demons. The main female protagonist (who both have skills in swordsmanship) in both series are literally weapons with extraordinary abilities. The only thing that keeps them from going insane are their companions. Additionally, both series' main female protagonist also has a dark past that is filled with tragedies and sorrow.
Both series also involves organizations with their own purposes and enemies with dark ambitions..
Both series contain action, drama, blood, gore, and gets darker and darker as more episodes progresses; a pleasing series to the audience into the darker side of the hack-and-slash genre.
While every show is unique in their own way, Claymore and Blood+ have a myriad of similarities that will make a fan of one show, a fan of the other. For starters, both shows revolve around the concept of monsters that consume flesh and blood. They are painted as evil, but in both shows the main characters are also connected to these vicious monsters they seek to kill. The connection is genetics though it is applied differently for each show. Besides that main concept, both shows involve powerful heroines who wield swords. They develop in different paths, as one show is about remembering one’s identity while the other is vengeance. Both shows are hack and slash, though Claymore is by far more violent, bloody and intense. Dire injuries are inflicted regularly as many monsters and people are killed, while Blood+ takes the killing down a notch. Blood+ also has weaker moments when it comes to killing due to the dialogue, but I found myself able to look passed that due to the differences in the atmosphere of each show.
If you are going from Blood+ to Claymore, a more aggressive and intense show awaits you, while the transition from Claymore to Blood+ can be a letdown only if you thrive on scenes filled with gore. The length of Blood+ is wonderful as Claymore is shorter and deviates from the manga at the end absolutely destroying the show for manga readers. Either way, if you are a fan of one show, you will most likely be a fan of the other as the action in both are very entertaining.
Both involve a powerful, not fully-human girl being able to slay demons that no ordinary person can. Both are accompanied by their male friends on their quests and later show signs of romantic interest. Both girls carry around swords which are used to annihilate the monsters. Blood+ is more dramatic and involves vampires, whereas Claymore is more of an action-adventure about mysterious demons called "yoma." The use of art in both is done spectacularly, and both contain unique, well thought-out plots—much different from the generic shows made nowadays.
Protagonist are both vampire like monsters
Main characters are genetically evolved and use swords
Genres are horror and dark action
Goal: Rid the world of the evil monsters
Character abilities: supernatural strength and speed
The main idea is similar. Good guys are essentially half bad (have parts of the body of bad guys in themselves, twin sister of the villain), fighting in both series are full of blood and slaughter, monsters are killed with big swords ...
They both have to deal with a strong female lead and are "monster hunters " i use that term lightly because neither are really focused on hunting but instead a greater enemy. If you enjoyed blood+ then a similar yet not as good one is claymore.
Both series are more dark and gritty end of the spectrum of action.
Both series revolve around a supernatural phenomenon and involve the main character having to journey around being faced with the dark reality of their world, that is not just as it seems on the first layer.
Blood+ and Elfen Lied deal with the definition of what it means to be human and humane. In both cases, a super-evolved species represented by an apparently frail female lead, presents a menace to mankind. Yet humanity is to be blamed for much of the violence that follows. While EL is occasionally borderline ecchi and Blood+ maintains a very serious tone through and through, both series are emotionally-moving exercises that allow emotional bonds to be forged, despite the deeply violent world-scape they present.
Girl protagonists who kill a lot and spill a lot of blood. Both are poignant and moving throughout, with deep emotional struggles and bonds all over the place. Both have mutated human beings who take the role of bad guys pose a threat to humankind as a whole.
Blood +, like Elsfen Leid, has alot of blood (look at the name XD).
they has similar subjects like supernatural, Sci-Fi, the undead cretures and more...
those two also has a similiar endings, they both ends with many things unfinished.
Both have lots of blood, fights, and violence.
In both anime, the main character is a girl who literally becomes another person when killing, even though Saya, on the opposite of Lucy, has not exactly a split personality.
Both are dramatic and sad, prepare the tissues.
Also, the story of the Schiffs , created by humans, used as killing machines, and then getting eliminated because too troublesome, really reminds of the Diclonius.
Both are absolutely worth watching.
The story line is fairly similar; both main characters have a kind of split personality and powers that awaken due to a series of events where they learn about themselves and secret organisations going on around them.
The main character in both of these animes are Female. Both of which are extremely violent and gory. In other words, at one point of their lives they could be considered 'killing machines' for their actions.
Both also have a double sided personality. The one that people adore and the other, which is blood craving.
Anyhow- there's a lot of action and fighting scenes! There's also a bit of romance here and there. If you liked Blood Plus, you're almost guaranteed to enjoy watching Elfen Lied.
Elfen Lied and Blood+ details two series that are violently driven involving powerful evolved species that becomes a menace to society. They become dangers not only to others but to themselves as well.
As such, both series features a lot of violence and gore with the main female lead being the center of it all.
Both series has emotional back stories that tells the sad side of the main characters involving tragedy.
Both series overall have a dark and serious tone that brings out a violent but also tragic story.
Both shows deal with vampires. Both shows have main characters who have siblings in the opposing faction. Both of them vow to defeat their siblings so that there would be no more harm. Both of them doubt about themselves until they eventually accept who they are.
Killing bloodsucking creatures and keeping them from causing other harm. That's what both anime are about. This comes with the necessary amount of violence and bloodshed of course. The characters and the context of the anime differ tho. Also, Trinity Blood is more serious while Blood+ has more drama. Nevertheless, if you like vampires, action and bloodshed. Go watch this show!
The main character in both stories is vampire,they fight their own kin to safe human race from doom.they belief that human and vampire can live together in harmony but some vampire think human is just only food to consume.
Both theses stories have in depth back stories there is violence, gore, even some tear jerker episodes. Both these for vampire anime's where a nice change from romance and cheesy back stories. Blood + was my first anime and before I knew all the sites out there I paid for most of the episodes. Trinity Blood has an amazing story and one that was easy to watch straight through.
Besdies the obvious association of creatures needing blood to survive, Blood+ and Vampire Knight also both follow the plot of self-sacrifice to protect those you love.
Fully recommend you watch Vampire Knight...touching.
Both have to do with Vampires. Main character is a female. Vampire living in a human world trying to make things right for their own reasons. There's a bit of romance in Blood + , but not as much as Vampire Knight. Main character doesn't remember their past in the first few episodes. -Turning others into Vampires :]
Both deal with vampires and both deal with love. They have good fighting scenes between their enemies and each have an evil person within their family who is trying to get them killed. If you are into bloody romances and killing, basically a trilling anime that will keep you on the edge of your seat, please do watch it and enjoy it ^^
Both are similar in the way that:
there is a young girl, who lost her memory as a vampire/monster, and a romantic type of man comes into the picture to protect her, yet she also falls in love with another person who is close to her.
the only difference is Blood + has more action.
Both anime's have vampires, action, and romance. They also both have good character development and story lines, and you can't help but fall for one or more of the characters. If you enjoy one you'll most likely enjoy the other!
Both animes are 'dark'. Yuuki and Saya have a past that they can't remember because it was sealed. In the series they discover their true natures and help battle evil. In blood+ the main focus is on the plot and the battles. Saya's feelings slowly develop throughout the story. Meanwhile in Vampire Knight Yuuki knows her feelings from the beginning and Kaname knows his as well. Dark pasts, shocking secrets and emotional struggles. There is no better recommendation for Vampire Knight or Blood+.
Both are about powerful vampires cooperating with organizations that specialize in killing vampires. The main antagonists are also engaged in mass producing vampires and are part of powerful vampire organizations.
Both anime are about killing bloodsucking monsters (vampires) to keep the world safe from those evil creatures. Both anime got the regularly dose of action, violence and bloodshed. So if you like those vampire based action anime, I'd say watch this.
Vampires and their exterminators (who happen to be vampires as well) - great action shows with catchy storyline and fearless characters will drag you into the world of nightmare that you do not want to wake up from.
Both are vampire stories, Hellsing is much darker, however Blood + shares some pretty dark moments too. Both main male characters kind of lead, protect and "educate" the female heroine, in really different ways, but the role is quite similar.
Both female characters have issues with accepting their "vampiric" nature.
Both involve vampires and action. Like Blood+ Black blood involve a deep story line spanning many years. Both involve the hunting down of monsters, Blood+ is chiroptera, and Kowlon children in black blood. Both man characters also have a complicated past
The theme of vampires, blood, and action comes into play in both series. As such Blood+ and Black Blood Brothers are two titles that are quite similar:
Both series has the supernatural theme involving vampires and vampire hunters.
The main characters also has a dark history related to other characters.
Both have a darker story as the episodes progresses.
Overall, watch these two if you're interested into some vampire action.
Both are centered around an undead girl who fights other undead creatures. Both have a boy with a connection to the girl as their lead. Both have disappointing action scenes and kind of a cheesy aura of sadness hanging over the girl, with the boy sort of having this attitude of wanting to save her.
They're both alike with how both of the main characters are girls who have to destory/fight monsters; also, both of the monsters in them are like vampires too. Ouri and Kai are the same really, bystanders who get casted off to the side because they're "useless", per say. I found that while watching Shikabane Hime: Aka, it had some rather simliar aspects to Blood+, with the vampire(-like) concept and the fact of the "living dead."
Very similar in the fighting styles. Both women have something in common even though one is a vampire creature and the other is a dead killer they are fighting for the common good. There is a level of mystery in both and they are both actually very decent anime.
Both titles comes off as violent anime series involving action, drama, gore, and other tragedies.
Both series' main protagonist's lives completely change after certain circumstances and are now realizes that they may never go back the way it was before.
Both series have supernatural elements involving demons which brings forth the violence and gore.
If you like fullmetal alchemist then I promise u will get stuck through every episode of this anime. Just like fullmetal alchemist, characters are well developed and there are no fillers. In fma we have Chimeras and in blood+ Chiropterans. Chiropterans are undead monster with the ability to disguise themselves as human. They live by feeding on peoples' blood. There is a secret organization called the Red Shield that exists to hunt down the Chiropterans.
[or vice-versa] Both animes deal with a little bit of a "gore" theme and center between teens who have abilities/characteristics unique from others. Both series also imply the importance of family, acquaintances, and life xD (the main characters of each series have their family the antagonist! kewl)
Not completely the same, but they're both really good. There's fighting scenes that must be seen. Blood+ is definitely a lot more bloody than Fullmetal Alchemist, but in the end both characters are fighting for something that they want to accomplish.
When I started watching Blood+, the first thing that came to my mind was D.Gray Man but in a different setting. Both have two parties, the good guys and the bad guys. They both have in common an organization which fights off the antagonists. Another noticeable similarity is the 'monsters' even though they're different, they both are dangerous to humanity and humans can also turn into these 'monsters'.
These two anime had some great fights and also had a sad past.D.Gray-man and Blood+ also had a same singer UVERworld for those two anime D.Gray-man Op 4.While Blood+ in Op 3.Komui and Haji had same voice actor Konishi Katsuyuki.
In both anime the main characters are twins (Diva & Saya/Aya & Aki).
Aya=Saya. Apart from having almost the same name, both are average schoolgirls who have a power within them and become another person when angered or in danger. Both are also pretty hesitant and annoying at times.
Toya=Haji. The emotionless, cold, non-human guy in love with the main girl, he's basically her bodyguard and lives only for her.
Yuuhi=Kai. The good guy, also in love with the main girl, but with no chance to succeed, he's loved in return by another girl.
In both you'll find love triangles, blood, gore, action, bishounen, romance, drama, scientists, doctors, experiments.
They have also a few more themes in common, such as memory loss, science, pregnancy, "incest", and family bounds.
Both can be considered reverse harem anime, Blood+ is just a zillion times better than Ayashi No Ceres. read more
Both animes feature supernatural, school girls who use their blood to fight demon-like enemies as their main characters. Both are action oriented with a slight hint at romance. Blood+ has a more serious tone about it, whereas Kyoukai no Kanata has a lot more jokes. If you want something a little longer and little more serious, check out Blood+. If you want something quick and fun, watch Kyoukai no Kanata.
The main female protagonist of both series both series uses blood to enhance the abilities of their sword,though Saaya(the female protagonist of Blood +) uses an actual Katana.
Both have to deal with killing supernatural monsters.
The main male protagonist of both series are somewhat immortal.
The action of both series are somewhat similar.
Same masterxservant relationship is implied. In Blood Plus, there's a queen and her knight who protects her with his life. In Kuroshitsuji, there's an earl and his butler who ALSO protects him with his life. Both are dark themed and historical.
I recommend Blood Plus to anyone who likes Black Butler because both shows are very dark. There is a similar relationship between main characters in both shows: master and servant. Also, there is a supernatural element to both shows.
They both deal with vampire/demon like main characters who's mission is to destroy an evil race that is plaguing human society. The main characters both love their "helpers" but feel that it is impossible to be in a relationship with them.
Girl with a Sword fighting off evil monster that attack humankind, struggling with the truth and loved ones around her. In my eyes its almost exactly like Ga-Rei: Zero. You could almost call them sisters.
Both series consists of fighting the supernatural (among them demons) with the art of swordsmanship.
The main female protagonist in both series are strong and possesses extraordinary abilities but also harbors a dark past.
Both series contain themes of tragedy, drama, action, and emotions later on.
Most of these anime's elements are the same. The only differences are mainly the time, country, and weapons used. These Anime both are about demonic outbreaks that only need to be resolved by te main character who has mastered the power to controll the demonic side of him/her.
I will be short and exact.
In "Blood+" the main character Saya Oronashi and her brothers Kai and Riku Myagusku have a happy life.
But in a day Saya descover the truth about her person:she's the own hope of humanity.
Her blood is the single weapon that can combat Chiropters,the monsters created with her twin's blood,Diva.
In the end,she destroy her sister and keep her sister's babies,saving the world.
But during the first episodes,some of her memories and actions are completley full of blood.
The animation on Blassreiter leaves a little to be desired, but the stories are similar. The lone hero fights against the injustice of their own kind to save humans. In both cases the hero's story is where it all began.
Both anime are about killing bloodsucking monsters to keep the world safe from those evil creatures. Both anime got the regularly dose of action, violence and bloodshed. Hellsing has more action while Blood+ has more drama. So if you like those vampire based action anime, I'd say watch this.
Dark atmosphere, a girl that is "special" fighting against her own kind...hunting her own kind. The dark, silent male as a love interest and a mysterious past. Drama, blood, people dying. Story goes deeper than at first looks, and furher in history...this especially for Blood+
The overall theme of the two might be different, but there's something about them that makes 'em similar. In a way, Saya and Shiki are alike. If you enjoyed the bloody battles and the deep storyline of Blood+, I'm sure you'll find the same feeling here.
Both series feature eerie supernatural elements, lots of gore, strong female leads who posses powers that are unrivaled, lots of action, and beautiful character development as the protagonists figure out who they really are. These are such beautiful series, and I recommend any fan of either one sees the other.
bleach and blood plus r the same because:
1. bolth have lots of blood and violence
2.bolth have bad creatures(blood+ creepy monsters, bleach hollows)
3.lots of sword play
i hope u check them out.thank you.
Blood+ has a lot of more Gore, but both can be really entertaining to watch. Main characters are skilled with swords and therefore have AWESOME fight scenes with lots of action!! Both of the main characters are fighting to defeat evil, almost to the point where they've had to sacrifice their lives, but manages to live.
Chevalier is a similarly dark storyline of vampires and the havoc they cause our loved ones. Different time (takes place in baroque Versailles instead of the modern day and victorian period) but the components are pretty much the same.
Semi-emotionless guy protecting someone important to him.
Luka and Haji both not human and can be considered 'evil' but are fighting for good.
Yuki and Saya both dont want to get involved at first but do in the end so they can help protect people. Both also cant remember past times but gradually regain memories
Blood+ seems to have a darker atmosphere and is generally the better creation but both are good :)
Both about a promise made with someone in the past and both Saya (Blood+) and Yuki (Uragiri....) have lived in the past and had reborn/awaken again now in the present and don't remember their past life. They both fight monsters....
If you were dissapointed by Blood+ like I was comparing it to the preview and what I expected, you should really try Ergo Proxy. It has many things that Blood+ would never have, although if you would here the story for both of them, you could barely differentiate them, and I'm talking about the atmosphere here. Ergo has the truly dark sceneries, ravages and atmosphere that you'd expect in Blood+, the conspiracy level is way higher and a lot less stereotipical and the difference of levels to what basicly exists in both would continue.
Both series have a black haired, red eyed girl named Saya fighting monsters with a sword.
In all honest Blood+ has a much richer story and better character development.
If you liked Blood-C you need to check out Blood+. It may be long, but that anime is worth the time.
Canaan and blood+ both focus on two girls (Canaan+Alphard/Saya+Diva) who came from the same origin but live to hunt down one another. Both Canaan and Saya fight not only for revenge, but to protect the people they love. Like Diva's group who creates Delta 67, Alphard's group creates the Ua virus, both which pose a threat to humanity. The stories each focus also on a journalist who happens to witness events they shouldn't have, getting themselves involved in the action... and a partner to the journalist who has an emotional attachment to a characters fighting the antagonists (Maria+Canaan/Mao+Kai).
They both heavily involve supernatural elements (Exorcist = demons; Blood+ = vampires) and a main character who is darkly connected to those very forces that he/she fights. Both series are quite fast-paced and exciting, and the first episode or two of either should suffice to draw you in.
If you are into the blood, darkness, a little bit of spooky horror not to mention brilliant plot!
Focusing Saya normal high-school girl who live his life at Okinawa island, but it all has started to change when bomber fly over the school.. Strange momeries of the past then incident at school and mysterious man saves her from lollipop!
Noo spoilers here!! ;)
Amazing storyline going thru 50 episodes and the ending is perfect the mighty finale what have been twisting and thightening 48 revial to the truth and to the future.
It's similar cause they have a girl who save the world and the bad guys just get her old self to destroy Tokyo. Both the girls sing and have group of friends to help them. They are really similar in other more ways.
If you want to see a little bit romance between hak and yonna then watch blood + . Hak and haji somehow they both really have deep feelings towards the girl they like but they don't really show it through words
Both series involve a world where vampire like creatures attack humanity in the night. One individual who has a tie to the creature is able to fight back in a way no one else can. Both series gave off the same general feel and I would definitely recommend these in light of the Halloween season.
Both Shows take on the premise of action girl, both are somewhat over the top and both involve special people fighting monsters, However Blood+ Is noticably darker and much more gorey while nobunagun focuses more on the action aspect.
PS: Both main characters can go from normal schoolgirl to full-on battle-addicted psychopath in the matter of seconds
Different premises and approach but really so similar context: both have literal monsters, but in reality, the real monsters are our inner demons
Same character profiles and developments
Both have haunting soundtracks. Kemonozume has jazz while Blood+ have operatic music
Both have monsters but different types: Kemonozume has flesh eaters while Blood+ have chiropterans
I think B+ has more heart, while Kemonozume shows the frenzy monster vibe
both anime have a very similar dark and bittersweet atmosphere.
the female protagonist dont know much about them selfs in the begining until later on.
they both find out they are special and that they have some special supernatural power.
both anime have a very mysteroius feel to it and makes u want to find out the truth. and what there characters are in the end and there back stories.
If you like a series with gratuitous action and an ever-deepening mystery where answers only raise more questions about the past of protagonists and the meaning thereof, both are for you. The supernatural spin doesn't hurt, either.
They are both thrillers. There's investigative action in both of them. They both have a handsome blond bad guy with a gentle voice. The bad guys in both animes are very wealthy. Both animes have monsters. They are both very addictive and the stories are very different, but they are both really great animes.
Both animes treat about a normal teenager who one day is involved in a fight against a monster (a chiropteran in Blood+ and a parasite in Parasyte) and is helped by a character who later turn into its inseparable partner (Haji in Blood+ and Migi in Parasyte). After this moment, both protagonists develops supernatural abilities and decides to fight against the monsters to protect their loved ones after losing one member of their family. Meanwhile, the monsters conspires and mix up with the human society, planning to domain the world. The army is also involved in the story.
However, Blood+ has a more slow pacing with traces of the story being revealed little by little, while Kiseijuu is a more fast paced anime, with more action scenes and with a somewhat environmental message. read more
In both series the main characters are typical school girls that after some extrange events, are forced to fight against human like monsters.
Also at first the plot seems obvious and clear, but as the plot goes on, the history keeps getting more twisted and confusing.
Similar in telling a story that ends up on a much larger scale than it started! World and existential issues caught up in a coming-of-age type story. Both have lots of relatively complex minor characters. And both are frequently funny, while also tackling some deep stuff!
Both Persona Trinity Soul and Blood+ share several key staff members and both shows feature the same kind of atmosphere as well as emphasis on familial themes and relationships. If you like Persona TS, you will more than likely enjoy Blood+ as well.
Both have that monstrocity element to it, such as people infected and turning into beasts. The animation is stunning, and the characters are believable. Very highly reccomeneded. This is one of my favorite animes.
Tall dark mysterious supernatural males partnered with high school female. That's pretty much where the similarities end though...Neuro is nothing like Haji, considering that Haji is Saya's servant and Yako is Neuro's slave...lol
Both use the idea of superhumans and experients connected to greedy corperate rich guys trying to take over the world (long sentence, I know). Both mains have huge responsabilitys with trying to protect their loved ones.
Well, the resemblence is absolutely obvious: schoolgirls as main characters, both Saya and Utena are top-notch fencers, lots of sword-fighting, repulsive "noble" men characters.
Nonetheless, there are some dufferences.
Firstly, B+ has very little humour, actually, no humour at all. Whereas RGU is not that mournful and is full of jokes (there is even a small annoying mascot). Sometimes jokes in RGU are used in the most serious and crucial moments to show, how odd duelists' pomposity is.
Secondly, B+'s animation is of a better quality than RGU's (in RGU there are >1minute animation sequences steadily repeated in every episode). Although there is a sword fight in almost every episode, RGU is not an action anime as B+ (by the way fights in RGU are rather poor and can't be compared to B+'s ones), it's more likely a drama.
No doubt there is drama in B+: two sisters, trying to kill each other is rather serious a drama. But drama in B+ is just a background for action, and in RGU it's quite the opposite thing.
So, if you are not keen of excessive symbolism and adolescence mental problems, you'd better not watch RGU, because it consisits of symbolism and teenager psychology. If you want more monsters bisected with a katana, go watch something else, RGU won't satisfy you.
As for the characters, they're completely similar as far as their personality is concerned. Both Utena and Saya want to protect their friends and wish they could live happily without fighting. Chevaliers and duelists are alike: although they appear to be noble and physically strong, they turn out to be wicked people, obsessed by their desires.
Ultimately, these series have a lot in common, but that doesn't mean, that you like B+ and you'll definetely like RGU. If you are not bored to death by soul-searching animes, go watch RGU. Or go watch B+ (if you have already watched RGU). I guarantee you won't regret it. read more
There are much more stronger similarities with Kuroshitsuji II than Kuroshitsuji because we can easily see a better comparisons (war among chevaliers / butlers):
Saya = Ciel
Haji = Sebastian
Diva = Alois
Diva's Chevaliers = Claude and the others Alois's servants
- Both are animated by Production I.G
- Both have vampires
- Both have a lot of action and blood
- Both have similar art and animation with a very dark and gritty atmosphere
- Both have powerful vampires that are linked with an evil organization
specially the character design of the vampires reminded me alot of how its done in blood+ if the action and mysterie and emotion also would be more poored onto sirius would be great but still waiting for it to happen . chara development isnt that great soo far
Both animes have a character shrouded in mystery and both of them have another character who loves them whole heatedly in one way or another. The plot is surprisingly similar in many ways. However these similarities aren't felt until the end of the series. If i would compare these two, I'd say these two animes both contain the same plot while one took the dark and mysterious approach the other one took a more childish and lighthearted approach. At the end of the day, both contain the same deep meaning and may leave you with many hours to reflect on them.
The main protagonist and antagonist are connected by the past. The interaction between the two are similar in both series. The fate of humans is up for debate.
The main plot lines are kind of similar, and the stories fill out as a tragic history is slowly revealed.
