Kuroshitsuji is about a demon butler, Sebastian, while Majin Tantei is about a demon detective, Neuro. Slightly different, but very similar characters. The shows both contain a similar atmosphere as well.
These anime are incredibly similiar. They have the same dark, mysterious mood; they’re both about a character who serves/helps the protagonist; and, most of all, Neuro and Sebastian are the same type of character. Clever, skilled, cold, human in appearance but not in fact, smiling but then being creepy and evil any minute. Neuro=demon detective, Sebastian=demon butler. They also repeat their “symbol sentences” (I already feel this mistery under my palate [Neuro]/I am a butler and a demon [Sebastian]) several times.
They have similar main characters--Sebastian is a demon butler while Neuro is a demon detective. Both anime have a slightly creepy and mysterious mood, and the main characters are both extremely clever and skilled.
Both series focus on a (sexy) demon protecting a human kid and the two of them solving mysteries.
Where Kuroshitsuji is a very dark anime MTNN is more humorous (in a sadistic way) and maybe easier to watch for guys as well when Kuroshitsuji mainly focuses on female audience.
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and Kuroshitsuji, in my opinion, are very closely related. Every episode is filled with a mystery and hold you to the very end! The differences are: Neuro's a detective, Sebastian's a butler. MTNN takes place mostly in Japan. Kuroshitsuji is in "back in the day" England. And Yako and Ciel are two totally different personalities, but even though they are the "main" focus of the story and are different from one another as it seems to me, Neuro and Sebastian are one in the same. Demons from Hell, looking for the best thing to eat, in Neuro's case it's the perfect mystery and for Sebastian it's the perfect soul, and they are very comical in a serious and, maybe cynical way. They go hand and hand~!
If it's mysteries, demons, and all around loveable characters you're looking for, both of these animes are for you! read more
Both main characters are focused as demons-one that eats souls, and one that eats mysteries. This says a lot on how they differ, but there is a similarity between the Black Butler Sebastian Michaelis and the "Detective's Assistant" Neuro Nougami. Perhaps it's their personalities. Of course they alter, but it's amusing how alike they are. Shortly after her father's death, Yako runs into the demon Neuro, who plays the role as an assistant flawlessly, but little do those around him know that he is really just feeding off the real assistant, Yako's, name "detective." He's the one who solves all the mysteries. And feeds off of them. While Sebastian, a gallant butler in black, serves as his master's servant. After Ciel lost everything he had, he sealed a contract with this demon, and until the end of his goals, Sebastian will serve him. With the hope of having a long-awaited meal. And so the two face many predicaments. read more
First of all, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro isn't really popular, which I think is weird because it's a really nice anime! It reminds me of Kuroshitsuji because:
- Sebastian & Neuro both are demons.
- Sebastian & Neuro both have special powers or are almost invincible.
- Both have a dark story with comedic stuff in it.
And I think both have a pretty mature story, it isn't childish. I really recommend to watch Kuroshitsuji and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro.
Both series has a strange male protagonist (Demons) who is clever, independent, cold, and possesses supernatural powers. Seemingly, a pact exists between that main male protagonist and his partner.
Both series' style of story telling seems to have a dark comedy taste to it with strange sequences and various twists. There are plot twists that are presented in a strange way. Additionally, both series contains action, drama, and some violence.
Both series' supporting characters also play roles in the series in various mysteries.
The central characters in both of these anime are a detective (albeit forced in MTTN's case) and his/her supernatural slightly creepy "assistant" with unusual abilities. Both assistant characters seem to have a kind of hunger for solving mysteries, though not literal hunger in Un-Go's case. Both anime are episodic mystery stories with a twisted premise. MTTN has an active element of (dark) humor though while Un-Go appears to be more serious.
Both feature an opposite gender partnership inwhich a 'odinary' person is a detective - they are acompanied by an inhuman 'mystery solvers' who gets excited when a mystery crops up, they then use their special abilities to get to the bottom of a case.
Within Un-Go, the mystery element surrounding pretty much everything is maintained in order to unravel later, whereas within 'Neuro, plot progression and character development are established at the start and continue threwout.
To me, these two series go hand in hand. Both titles involves supernatural mystery with a very bizarre main protagonist who often makes strange jokes and has a peculiar sense of humor. Yet, they do help the main protagonists in their tasks especially in cases where their lives are at danger.
Both series has a taste of mystery as well as cases involving supernatural phenomenon.
Both series has humor but presents it in a twisted or dark way occasionally especially with the main protagonist.
For fans of detective fiction.
Both series are mystery and supernatural genre based and center around a detective and their assistant who benefit off one another. Characters (Inga and Neuro) both have a hunger, craving, and urge to solve mysteries and use their supernatural abilities to get to the bottom of a case. If you loved one of these series you're bound to love the other I'm sure.
Although Neuro is a lot more light hearted, both animes have supernatural beings interacting (perhaps even manipulating) humans. Both are centered around murder mysteries, although Neuro is episodic (however, there is an overarching unsolved mystery in it too).
Death Note and Neuro both involve very intelligent characters and a great plot. As you progress through either series, a bit of each character is revealed, whether it be good or bad, your bound to like either show. Neuro came from Hell in order to satisfy his appetite for mysteries, and "L" being the best detective in the Death Note world, you're going to be intrigued by either show. Unfortunately because of this, you're going to find yourself wanting to watch more and more. (Also, Both shows have the OP's done by Nightmare.)
Both series are policial/detective series. Both series are really interesting and they encourage you to think about the crimes and to try to resolve them. DN is more violent and dramatic than MTNN and MTNN have a bit of comedy. Both series have a good character design.
Both are of course great mystery and detective shows. One thing I see that is kinda similar in the two series though is that Neuro basically uses Yako to solve cases in Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, and in Detective Conan, Conan uses Kogoro. So it's like both detectives use others to solve cases.
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro gives a lot more of a supernatural feeling though, whereas Detective Conan is a pretty much straight mystery series. So that certainly gives enough difference between the two for entertainment.
Both shows involve solving mysteries and the way the culprit kills the victim is always very clever. Conan and Neuro both hide there true personalities. The characters neuro and conan don't work by there real names they use somebody else identity in this case is yako and kogoro to take all the glory.
Both have protagonists (not necessary the main characters) that solve mysteries using the identity of someone else (the other protagonist). Conan and Majin Tantei both have a little bit of comedy.
They are good shows that shows how they solve murder mysteries and more. Though both series may make the culprit incredibly obvious both are amazing mystery anime. Majin Tantei and Conan are both mostly episodic stories.
right off, i'd have to say that ghost hunt is the better of the two [even though majin hasn't finished airing yet].. but both are episodic series with mysteries being solved.. a young high school girl with no family follows around a mysterious sempai-mystery-solver.. um.. there isn't a whole lot as far as character development goes in either of the series.. majin has more bizarre [and shocking] humor while ghost hunt sticks to the paranormal shockers without the laughs.. both involve the supernatural-majin's main character is a demon with really strange mystery-solving methods.. while ghost hunt focuses on the religious or spiritual methods of ghost hunting [ghost, monster, poltergeist, psychokinetic hunting].. anyways, i wasn't a huge fan of either, but methinks if you liked one you might enjoy the other.. read more
Neuro and Ghost Hunt are both detective anime. They both have some similar aspects of each other like: both being comical and creepy at the same time. And also, both of these series have hinted romance.
Both have a girl who becomes the partner of a guy who is extremely smart and who solves crimes. Each have supernatural themes in it (Majin has more, though). The main girl in each anime at first appears to be weak and useless, but later on shows to be a perfect fit for the job. Each anime has a team of some sort that works in an office.
Both female leads are high school students who get dragged into solving cases. Both female leads have 1 or more parents that are deceased. Both female leads have hidden talents and secrets. Both female leads get dragged around by the male leads.
There be a demon in Neuro. There be a girl from hell in Hell Girl. This is MAL--RECOMMENDATION TIME!
Neuro is your typical detective series reliant on episodic clue-gathering, followed by the big reveal at the end. Hell Girl isn't, but its episodic unravelling-reasons-for-hatred, followed by punishment being dished out at the end, does make the two rather similar. Getting something new each episode makes them highly watchable; easy to pick-up without having to remember details.
Neuro's lighthearted Shounen Jump vibe allowed for a more forgiving attitude when dealing with one-dimensional 'black & white' characters (can only do so much inside 20 minutes!), but in the case of Hell Girl it often wasn't as good as it could be due to its more moody, mature direction not meshing with its simplistic characterisation. So, while Hell Girl improved in its sequel series with lengthier two-episode arcing - allowing for a less clear divide between good & bad - Neuro was generally at its best when its silliness wasn't put under a magnifying glass with lengthy arcs. read more
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is the comical form of Jigoku Shoujo, at least in my opinion. Each episode focuses on a different mystery/crime/injustice that must be solved, or in Neuro's case, eaten. Jigoku Shoujo has more serious pyschological undertones than Majin Tentei Nougami Neuro, but they're both well animated and very enjoyable to watch.
Both series are a case-by-case episodic manner, with some cases taking up more than one episode. Also, both are equally supernatural and while Neuro is more comedic and light hearted than Jigoku Shoujo, they both have a dark air to them.
It really looks a lot like each other, it has the same feeling, even though Jigoku Shoujo feels a little darker.
In Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro there is a murder each episode, and they are going to find out what happened and who did it,
while in Jigoku Shoujo there is someone who hates someone each episode, they are going to look at what happened and why they hate that person,
In Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, Neuro ends up eating the "mysteries",
while in Jigoku Shoujo, Enma Ai ends up sending people to hell.
It's not exactly the same, but it really looks alike a lot. I think that if you liked one of them, you will like the other too.
Though in Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is a bit more crazyness in my opinion.
Oh and they both have a sentence that will be repeated every episode
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro: Hannin wa omae da! The culprit is you!
Jigoku Shoujo: Ippen shinde miru? Will you try dying this once?
( Even though the thing she actually says everytime is Yami ni madoishi awarena kage yo. Hito o kizutsuke otoshimete, Tsumi ni oboreshi gō no tama, Ippen... shinde miru? which would mean... Oh pitiful shadow lost in the darkness, Demeaning and bringing harm to others, A damned soul wallowing in sin... Care to give death a try? -totally used google for the whole sentence, dont judge me- )
The repeating sentences are kind of annoying in my opinion, but on the other hand.. by the end of the anime you would probably have learned them. read more
Both anime deals with unorthodox detective work and of course, demons and other mythological facts. Although Neuro is a bit darkish in tone compared to Loki, both will satisfy any detective-themed anime fan's delight. ^__^
They both are about explaining deaths. In Neuro there's this 'demon' solving the mysteries and in Umineko there's this witch who says that the people died by using magic. The guy doesn't believe it and tries to explain everything logically.
Hooked up on mysteries and detectives? Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and Spiral are defined by such! Protagonists and antagonists battle through their wits to defeat the other.Both Anime's also have their laughs to boast with comic-relief and kawaii characters.
-A badass, sadistic male lead
-A female lead that's not the damsel in distress or fan-service type
-Amazingly hilarious comedy
-Can seem childish but have actually very mature content (it doesn't show in MTNN in the first few episodes, but believe me it's NOT a child friendly anime)
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and Shinrei Tantei Yakumo are fairly similar as you may have guessed by the title itself, both being in the genres of Mystery and Supernatural. The main characters are also seemingly similar, a male and a female. Both leading females have lost a family member that they loved, and happen to meet the leading males, who have a special ability that help solve the cases within the series. So, if you're a fan of vise versa - do watch.
Maybe the only one thing that links these series together is the main characters. Neuro and Alucard are both from Hell (in some way) and have connections with devils. Both of them have young, not very smart and quick-witted female assistants. And finally they have the same charisma, arisen from their nature.
Neuro and Yako are really similar to Alucard and Integra (when she was small of course) and Neuro's hellish powers and demeanor remind me very much of the ones of Alucard. If you like Hellsing, I'm certain you like Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and the other way around.
An uncomfortable mix of serious plot, weird magic protagonists, questionable gags, forced humour, oft-repeated catchphrases, and 00's art in a private detective setting.
Some crimes happen too I guess.
-Lets strat with the most obvious in those both seires, they are both have the same mangaka Yuusei, Matsui.
-Both shows the seek to know the ULTIMATE Mystorious thing in the storyline such as "who really is koro-sensei?" or on ther other show - "what really happned to Yako's father?" and so on...!
-Both animes has a "Unique" main character which isn't like any other regular person
-Both main character can't be actually identifed as Good or Bad personallity as for their S (Sadistic) side of them, or on the other side, to destroy Earth (ansatsu kyoushitsu).
-Both seires has a villain with an unknown personallity or past or even Motives!
(and in my Opinion, on each of thier own shows, the villain has an epic voice actor such as Romi Park for the villain in Neuro and Ogata Megumi for Ansatsu) read more
it's made by the same autor, and it has some things that are similar, like an overpowerd character in an anime that isn't a battle shounen (and that's not the protagonist)and the comedy is prety similar. I've seen that almoust no one knows this anime, and I realy like it
Both involve murder cases in which victims are placed in a box of some sort. Both stories have supernatural events caused by demons but in Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro the demon is defeating another "demon" and in Mouryou no Hako the medians are defeating the demon. Both include supernatural elements and mysteries
Hare and Guu, aswell as Majin Tantei Nogami Neuro both feature a torment, inhuman character attatching themselves to an unfortunate youngster.
The unfortunate youngster has no choice but to put up with their new 'friend' and is fully aware of this individuals vast range of supernatural abilities.
Both supernatural characters litterally have more then one face and can portary a cute 'I'm just an innocent tag along' exteriour towards others.
Both regular characters are fairly balanced individuals; they're not sickly sweet, they're not too quiet and they're not push-overs either.
Both have a good balance of; plot foundation, odd humor and character development.
In both shows the heroine eats a lot. They were both alone in the beginning but after meeting the male lead, they meet new people and experience many things. Both anime have comedy. Both male leads are not normal.
Zombie Loan and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro are quite similar they both solve mysteries and the main females are both very timid and shy. Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro is more gorey than zombie loan but if you like that stuff and mysteries there both perfect for you.
Different genre's but same characters. Kyouko from Skip Beat is basically the same as Yako. They both have the same hair style and character. Also both Heroine's seem to be abused by the male protagonists.
Both have a mysterious and supernatural element in them and have a deeper plot as the story moves along. The plots themselves are pretty different, but the genres (and dare I say, the art) is kind of similar too.
The same type of protagonists - Neuro and Yuko have a lot of common. They are both supernatural creatures, both are mighty and both deal with different detective stories, which in the end are connected with mystic and supernatural. There are also their apprentices in human world - for Yuko it's Watanuki, for Neuro - Yako. And both Yuko and Neuro give their apprentices knowledge, a place to help people and expierence... for to leave them in future.
Meet Lawrence reincarnated! The Private Eye with white hair looks the same, and I don't mean similar or alike, I mean totally, totally the same. I could swear it's him. The guy can be spotted about 5 mins into the show. Well, nothing else similar.
The art style in both has a certain stylistic "bad and unattractive, yet awesome" quality to it. This is more apparent in the manga versions of both series, but the animation manages to capture that. In addition, both series have a lot of battles of wits, Kaiji with its gambling and Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro with solving detective cases. Add a little extremism - for example Neuro's physical and mental abuse of Yako and the ridiculous stakes Kaiji wagers in some of his gambles - and it's easy to see at a glance why a fan of one would enjoy the other.
Shion no Ou is about a girl whose parents get killed and she uses the Game to find out the killer. On the other hand, Majin Tantei is about a girl whose father is dies and she is recruited to by a demon to help solve mysteries for the demon to eat. She uses this premise to find out what happened to her father.
The basic flow of both stories are very similar, its just that one is about killers and murderers, while the other is about a game. ultimately the idea is to find out the criminal who committed the act against the lead characters. one thing to note though, Majin Tantei is way more dark even with its mild humor.  read more
Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro and Yu-Gi-Oh! (Toei version) are similar in several ways.
They are both Shonen Jump series.
They are both highly episodic but have extended arcs in similar places (Shadi-Aya, KaibaLand-HAL and MonsterWorld-South America).They both involve someone punishing wrongdoers with the help of mental torture. They both have a recurring villain (Kaiba-X) who wants to beat the protaganists. They both have a cast of eccentric characters and one-shot villains. Both series have a case with a serial bomber. Yu-Gi-Oh however has less death and a larger emphasis on friendship, while Neuro has more shock value and is focused more on the villain's psychology.
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 are mystery shows that came out in the same season, centered around an eclectic group of children and adults. Both have supernatural elements and a child-detective, although in Majin Tantei she's just a front for the mystery-solving demon whereas in Suteki, the boy is a genius.
I think viewers of Keroro Gunso would also enjoy Majin Tantei Nougami (if you're into mystery story-lines) because of the sarcasm and funny relationship between Neuro and Yako. As far as similarities go that is about it :)
Both series have a similar main character dynamic. Neuro and Elias are both monsters who don't understand humans very well and need help to learn to do so. They both have a young female partner to teach them about the human world. Yako and Chise are both strong female leads who love to help others. The shows also share a similar main villain. Kaitou X and Cartaphilus are basically the same character.
The settings and genre of the shows are very different, but if you like the characters in one, you're likely to like them in the other too.
Both are mysterious and in an episodic style. (Ok, maybe 2 episodes) Very interesting characters and good pacing to keep you on your toes. However, Darker than Black is graphic and realistic while MTNN is more fantasy based.
Although they are different in many ways (for one, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro isn't "yuri"), they are alike by how one of the main characters (Maria & Neuro) are both insane and have a sadistic personality; there's also the fact of the other main characters in it, who are forced to become their "slaves" (Yoko & Kananko). Also, the other characters in both of these animes are constantly easily decieved.
I think that wathcing Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro will remind you strongly of Maria and Kananko from Maria†Holic.
Neuro & Baka are both crazy sadists who flick from innocent to evil in moments. I find myself watching one and thinking of the other. While one is a demon and the other is an alien, they are both other-worldy psychos. And the quirkyness they bring is very similar too.
