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+.

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.

Both relate to a quest to defeat blood-sucking beings (Vampires) in order to make of the world a better place for everyone.

Romance, vampires, and lost memories for the female protagonist, who ends up having a more important role than first glance.

If you love vampire anime, this won't disappoint you :)

Do you like the dark vampire anime series like Blood+? Then you should definitely try Black Blood Brothers. The brothers are just like Saya, and it is worth watching.  
report Recommended by Migandas
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. 
report Recommended by Dorothea
Swords, monsters and blood! Both the series have same things, but Blood+ is so much better! If you liked Tokko, you must see Blood+ (and Blood: The Last Vampire, related to it).

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.

Both are action series with a darker tone to them, and both focus more on characters and are more character-driven than what normal action series tend to do 
report Recommended by TheLlama
Violence, drama and love. Emotionally deep female leads.

Both girls use blood to kill their "monsters". Both have somewhat of a love interest. Both are really good and full of action.

Many people have the same character in particular is very similar to the relationship hagixsaja- sebastianxciel

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.

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. 
report Recommended by rorakor
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. 
report Recommended by Ryuuketsu
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+ 
report Recommended by DarkLaila
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.

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.

Both are Production IG series that belong to the mystery, supernatural, horror genre. Blood+ is longer, yet more exciting than Le Chevalier D'Eon, but if you liked one, try the other too. 
report Recommended by RenaPsychoKiller
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 :)

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.

A Story About a Pure Evil Queen of All Vampires and a Pure Good Werwolf Knight wich is sick in a disease called "Love" Blood + is Also a Story about Love and problems.

it is very similar because these two main characters are actually something they would have never thought they both fight using swords and both lose and regain their memory

both have characters who are connected to each other by shared events and forget their past,however;advancing in the series, all of them get to remember their lost memories.

Both are related to hell beings 
report Recommended by Yusuke-Urameshi
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).  
report Recommended by lyuhak
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.

The story's almost same even though Devil May Cry is a bit strange and Blood+ is cool with a lot more action!!!

Both anime have vampire- (like) creatures, blood + doesnt have much comedy and it is definetly more serious. if you like VKG, then you'll like blood +!

They both have a "girl with sword" main character. And there's magic and love triangles too!

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 
report Recommended by animeanime2412
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. 
report Recommended by Hamaneko
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 
report Recommended by Jojo_Reference
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.

These series are not alike but Tina made me think of Saya. it also made me think how interesting Tina would be in the world of Blood+

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.

Both sword fighting animes :P Def both worth watching 
report Recommended by Cytoplasmic
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  read more

Both involve demons and protecting, also lost memories and a lot of action. 
report Recommended by mvsyli
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. 
report Recommended by Turb0_mugen
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 shows feature protagonists who live normal high school lives, but are soon dragged into large, action-packed adventures.

Immortality, war, power and betrayals - both series have that, though CG is much deeper and has much better character developments.

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 anime show the value of family despite not being related by blood. HTe characters are 'siblings' that care deeply for each other.

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.

Main character is a girl who wounds up in a bad situation she didnt cause. She was chosen (by fate/lineage/blood...) to do something big.  
report Recommended by carodajka
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  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

The two stories share a plot that revolves around a strong, young girl set on a mission to fight using her supernatural abilities.  
report Recommended by arimakenshin
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.

Both have the same violence level with a lot of mutilation, murder and blood, but without nudity. The graphs from are both very similar and very elaborated.

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.

Both have dark atmospheres at times. Mostly sword fights with lots of action. Also a bit of drama in both anime's.
