These two shows revolve around powerful people living a lifestyle that requires constant movement. A powerful person, Saitama, and a powerful organization, Libra, on a daily basis are fighting monsters / aliens in a modern day setting with a great action and comedy genre always present.

Protagonists struck me as similar The Plots are completely different but if you enjoy an underdog story that has good action and growth that where the similarities lie. > both Leo and Bell are striving to become stronger in their own way > both have nakama who are supporting them > both consider themselves weak and understand what loss is also both have good quality animation.

The crazy environment looks quite the same. The two protagonist are newcomers that discover a crazy town and learn to live in it.

Very similar premises and storylines. Both stories incorporate a substantial group of members with supernatural powers trying to save the city from terrorism and evil, but at the same time add twists of humor to lighten up the mood.

Similar cast and premise: Characters with unnatural powers band together to protect the things around them. Both what I would call "style" anime

Episodic narratives concerning superpowered characters. DtB has a darker, more noir feel to it while KS is a bit more lighthearted

Both shows that are hilarious in their episodic comedy, with the ability to do more serious arcs efficiently. Also they both share the theme of aliens living in an existing Earth city along with the normal residents

The same plot where it involves a group of special people who does the impossible of dealing with special cases where the public peace at stake.

Both shows take place in similar settings (post apocalyptic-type dystopian worlds) and have similar vibes and humour. The characters are very likeable with strong female characters (though you see more action from the women in Dorohedoro!) Both have great OPs and EDs! However, Dorohedoro is much gorier and crazier than Kekkai Sensen. I wouldn’t suggest it for people who can’t stomach rotting corpses and flesh and such things, though they are somehow portrayed in a lighthearted(?) way. If you couldn't take the level of blood in Kekkai Sensen, then Dorohedoro is definitely not for you! That aside, if you've enjoyed both seasons of Kekkai Sensen, I  read more
