Both shows are inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Both are really good murder mystery stories. Both main characters think meticulously to solve the case.

Despite BOM being classified as an OVA and being only two episodes, if you enjoyed this part of the Kuroshitsuji series, and probably the rest of Kuroshitsuji, you'll probably enjoy Baccano! as well. Similarities: -Murder mystery setting -Various 'parties' that contribute to a bigger scheme *Kuroshitsuji: Demons, nobles, shinigami *Baccano!: Gangs, mafia, alchemists, criminals -MC duo that bring the various events/plot together -MCs with supernatural powers -Story about who you can/can't trust despite what they appear to be (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
