Both series are about various stand-alone incidents related to supernatural events, and an organization composed of people from various religious/occult affiliations that work together. Though the views on how magic works and personalities of the character varies greatly, both shows have a lot a similarities.
Ghost Hunt- Group of people with different types of exorcism powers(spirit medium, miko, etc.) helping with cases people hire them for.
Rental Magica- Group of people with different types of magic (celtic witch, demon summoner, etc.) helping with problems people hire them for.
Both series is involved in mystery super natural&poltergeist.but i prefered ghost hound because they have great stories that make you want to keep wacthing,this is best horor series that i have seen comparing with other title had also super natural story spice .You will never regret if you watch this series.
Both Male MC share the same power of one of their eyes having the power to predict movements, though since they haven't mastered it, the effect only lasts for a few moments and MC suffers physical damage near said eye. Both dabble with different kinds of Magic (RM is supernatural phenomena while 11e is apocalypse-esque).
Extremely similar concepts. Both the series has their own plotline, but follow a monster-of-the-week format (meaning that almost each episode is self-contained) although an ongoing plot often involving the main character is present. Magic, spirits and the like are also present when it comes to the different characters in both of these series combating the antagonists.
One cannot simply dismiss the similarity in concepts between these titles. While watching Loki, I cannot help but remember Rental Magica from 2 years back and definitely Neuro. Sharing a concept which involves some form of western occult magic, for instance, Rental Magica embraces all forms of world magic folklore such as Celtic, Solomon and Japanese Onmyouji, while Loki focuses on Norse mythology, as observed by the main character, Loki, himself. Additionally, the gradual and slow pace of plots between the two shows are observed in a similar fashion for both titles, which thus brings out the development and characterisation of the characters effectively.
These animes have similar stories. They both fight demons/youkais with magic and they have Onmyoujis and shikigamis in common. Also, two of the main characters, Masahiro and Itsuki, both have a special ability with their eyes.
If your looking for an anime with a supernatural setting that have certain individuals with strange powers, then either xxxHolic or Rental Magica maybe what you need. In xxxHolic we have the main Watanuki who can see spirits and in Rental Magica we have Itsuki who has the glam eye that see's the weaknesses in magic. Due to their power, they are forced to join a motley crew who handle the weird when it comes to the supernatural. Both series are a fun watch, and can provide you hours of information on the weird and supernatural of Japanese culture.
If you like the supernatural/magical element in this series, you would like Rental Magica. It has similar characters: a group of heros with special abilities, in this case an organization, looking to ward off evil in their city. Both have a hint of comedy, darkness, and adventure. Both have very similar main characters: a seemingly normal main guy with a special ability and a strong female at his side.
Both anime have guys with power in their eyes. Slightly similar concepts - a group of people with strange powers deals with some supernatural problems. Rental magica is more light-hearted and funny. Kekkai Sensen is more bloody and mature.
In both anime, the main male lead has an eye that gives them the ability to command people (though in Rental Magica, Itsuki just becomes more confident, thus being able to issue commands.) The eyes the characters have are also red and are both said to eventually cause the owners to become insane. Itsuki and Lelouch are also voiced by the same seiyuu, Jun Fukuyama.
However, Code Geass is more about freedom and battle while Rental Magica focuses on the cases Astral receives. I would recommend anyone who has seen either of these anime to watch the other.
While seeing all these supernatural abilities, we somehow want to become closer to that kind of world. In Kaze no Stigma is exposed only the one side of it - the direct use of magic without a thought about how it was gained and how it is supposed to be used. But there is Rental Magica that not only focus on the supernatural, on the magic itself, but on explaining the things we don't know about it - how it is related to martial arts, what are the different kinds of magic (e.g. Celtic, Shinto, Solomon) that come from different places on Earth. So if you are fascinated by Kaze no Stigma, you'll just need to learn more about magic with Rental Magica! read more
In both of these series the lead boy is made to be with to the lead girl due to reasons revolving around magic. Also,This anime is mostly revoling aroung magic and other abilities. Both male main characters possess a somewhat different power than others... These two are definatley similar
They both fight evil beings. D.Gray-man = akuma, Rental Magica = ghosts and other beings, however rental magica also rents out magicians to people for their uses. Also both Allen Walker and Itsuki Iba have eyes to help them do their job.
They're not exactly alike seeing as to how one deals with magic and the other deals with the mafia. Actually, Katekyo Hitman Reborn does have something that can relate to magic - the dying will flames. Anyway, in both series, the protagonist is a boy who isn't very strong at all and is usually constantly protected by others (at first anyway). But when you're hoping something unexpected to happen to save the day, it usually happens with the cause being Tsuna/Itsuki. Both characters get pretty strong and it just looks really cool to watch. (Well, not really Tsuna at first per say, but later, yeah.)
While the two have completely unrelated stories and the magic being shown, both have the same concept. Mages offer their service for a payment in return. If you don't get enough of Someday's Dreamers, pick up Rental Magica for more action comedy.
Both revolve into simply fighting off their enemies, being monsters or not!
Both involve having different classes of magic which each character can use, giving diversity.
Night Wizard revolves teamwork for collection of special orbs and safety of earth.
Rental Magica revolves teamwork for cleansing supernatural phenomenons.
Yuu Yuu is a much older anime than Rental Magica, but very analogous I looked across my whole entire animelist, and Yuu Yuu Hakusho correlated to Rental Magica the most, and vice versa. The supernatural powers are at hand, but take diverse forms.
(Only real thing is... Rental Magica takes a massive leap to take used to as it is lethargic in the beginning)
Character Team Play- The play that recquires that the Silent Mobius had an agency called A.M.P. and the mission is to eliminate the Lucifer Hawk Categories. While the Rental Magica title itself it's called to 'rent magic user' and had an agency called Astral, and the mission is to accomplish the client's request even it's a friend or foe.
