Both are generic shounen series on the surface, but are enjoyable regardless. They both take place in a school dedicated to defeating the supernatural and both stories revolve around the students, mostly. The main characters also both deal with being demonic.

Both anime are about "gods" (Soul Eater: Shinigami). In both anime, some characters can change into a weapon and be used by their partner. In both anime, the "gods" (can) fight some sort of a monster that isn't human or another normal animal. They're also fun to watch. :)

Both have two guys that seem to hate eachother and are constantly trying to beat eachother, but when it comes down to saving the things they care about these two main characters make an unstopable force. there is also a ton of random things that will make you laugh in both series.

Simular setting as soul eater: Shinigami fighting monsters who feed of human souls. Comedy, action and romance elements are also present in both series. The animation style is different though, soul eater has cartoonesk elements while bleach has a more common animation style

- Both have a Halloween-like theme to it filled with supernatural creatures galore. - Both are shonen fighting anime. - Fanservice galore in both - Similar humor - Soul and Staz both have really similar personalities - The art style to Blood Lad is strikingly similar to Soul Eater's in a way. I actually believed that both of them were by the same creator when I first saw Blood Lad! So if you like the art style in one then you might really like the other.

I found Soul Eater to have the same atmosphere as FMA. There are some episodes that are hilarious, and some that are just creepy. There's great character development in both of these along with epic fighting. The first few episodes are the intro, and then the story takes off afterwords. The art work is amazing (at least in HD) It's dark, comic, 3d, 2d in a 3d environment, and colorful. I'd say the main difference is that Soul Eater isn't as depressing. Both of them are great series to watch.

Both of these animes are pretty similar, they have partners that change into weapons. Also it seems that the weapons and person controlling the weapon seems to develop a love interest with each other.

Both series have often creepy atmosphere, good and well developed characters, good mix of humour and drama (tough SE is a bit more centered at humour while Pandora is a bit more centered at drama), girls with Scythes, cool-headed male leads, interesting monsters, insane villains and are great at storytelling (in different style and with different topics, tough)... and there are even more similarities. If you have watched one of these shows, it is highly recommended to watch the other as well!

FMA:B Also deals with the idea of "human weapons" and competing factions who are not always as they appear. Both have humour on the side as well.

both have quirky similar random humour (which is at excellent quality) and has simiar strange atmosphere to it, where it (in soul eater) is in a different gothic world whilst kuroshitsuji is normal life with many dark supernatural aspects (which also seem quite gothic). lots of action, some drama, lots of humour and great general anime :D

Like I totally understand that every person that watches BNHA would think, "Oh hey! Super heroes... One Punch Man!" but I'm truly surprised that not many individuals have brought up a show that is similar in almost every aspect excluding it's whole superhero concept. Soul Eater. First of all, the main similarities between the two for sure lie in the plot lines. The plot in both series revolve around teenage characters set in a school setting catered towards those with supernatural abilities and from there the overall action-packed, comedic atmosphere provides more evidence to their similar traits. I find the characters in both shows generally  read more

Soul Eater is much longer and will probably reach its intended end (or at least I should hope so) while Zombie Loan was cut short and is uncertain, but Zombie Loan has some of the same elements such as a team working toward a goal to fight evil through supernatural weapons and powers, though in Zombie Loan it is to pay back a loan and in Soul Eater it is to become a Death Scythe. Both shows have shinigami and dark themes. The style of Zombie Loan is more typical of anime while Soul Eater has a Nightmare Before Christmas atmosphere with its bloody grinning  read more

If you liked Naruto you would like Soul Eater because Its a bout 3 kids which are meisters and 4 weapons. Naruto is similar to the Character Black*star because Naruto claims he is going to be hokage and Black*star says he is going to surpass God. Also the Main Character, Maka is similar to Sakura. They both Bully their closest friends like how sakura punches naruto and Maka bullies her partner,Soul Evans who is similar to Sasuke also, Death The kid is sort of similar to sasuke.

Same concept of partners fighting together. Soul Eater is about humans who are also weapons while Absolute Duo is about humans who wield their souls. Romance abound in AD while comedy is littered all over Soul Eater.

Both series have teenagers dealing with Supernatural concepts. Though Soul Eater is more goofy and has lots of elements typically seen in your everyday Shounen series while Angel Beats seems to be more serious and emotional at times.

Celty has a death scythe and so is the other characters of "soul eater". It also has that same feel because its also a bit Gothic and a little weird and scary. Once you watch Soul Eater you should also watch Durarara! because these two are both good and awesome anime!

While both series of the supernatural have different plots and stories, one thing I found to be very similar was each others character design and atmosphere. If you liked the art and animation of Soul Eater, then you will most likely enjoy Yumekui Merry.

The drawing style isnt that different, and it also takes a non-serious approach for the protagonist to accomplish their jobs. In both cases, it also involves non-stop fighting between the lead female and males and also has a no brainer loud mouth as one of the main characters and other crazy, wacky supporting aspects.

Both anime deal with a servant-master relationship and are filled with references to historical figures, though Soul Eater is a bit more comic.

Both of the shows tend to be carried by their settings, which are rich, fun, and thoroughly defined. Unfortunately, they also share the same weak point: contrived boob jokes that only reduce the shows' integrity.

Amazing fight scenes, nothing in common with story, but the flow sorta felt the same, and the Maka is alot like the heroine for World Destruction 
report Recommended by Dkosty
Tweeny Witches (Mahou Shoujo Tai) is a bit more stylistic than Soul Eater, and with quite a more wild story telling pattern. But what's really striking similar between the two shows, besides dealing with the topic of witches, is the art design. Especially evident in the backgrounds and the ways the cities are drawn. Honestly, this recommendation is more because of the art than the stories or characters. If you're a huge fan of straight up action shounen and not more wild storystelling, you might want to pass.

Soul Eater and Basquash both have a loveable cast of characters, similiar art styles, and fastpaced action. Basquash seems to be aimed at a little more mature audience. Also Dan = Black Star

One of my more surprise recommendations. Both anime have the main characters attending a prestigious school that's well renown in their respective universes. There's a similar balance of comedy and fanservice in both anime and the supporting characters are colorful and feel lively. Both main characters (Maka and Soma) are trying to achieve the highest possible titles in their school as well.

Dragon ball z is the type of show that as you go through it you can attach to the characters and not expect them to die(well they come back every time) Soul eater also falls into that category, and you can tell(or i could) from the 2nd episode what kind of show it was. Soul eater is much shorter so its kind of like 1 or 2 sagas of DBZ. but its still definitely worth watching and if you liked DBZ i think you will like Soul eater.

Both series involve the main characters being involved with the spiritual world. Both protagonists work under the spiritual world to attain supernatural powers. Both series have an emphasis on action as they both have fluent animation and interesting battles. Both series put the spotlight on only the main characters and don't really emphasize the side characters as much. The main characters are interesting with each of them serving a different purpose and all have different goals. They all have unique personalities and showcase intriguing interactions with others.

Both stories involve kids going to special schools to learn how to use their powers. Both male protagonists have great potential and hidden abilities that they have yet to tap into. The headmasters of both series are jokesters and very humorist but known to be powerful and formidable. The two series share Action, Comedy, ecchi Fantasy, and Supernatural genre components.

The large ensemble casts for these series work well because everyone is relevant. Episodes (in the case of Soul Eater) or sections of episodes (Baccano!) tend to focus on a small group (i.e. a meister-weapon pair or Jacuzzi's gang) of the main cast, but when they function strongly as a united whole also. Soul Eater's length allows for more interaction between the many characters, but Baccano!'s multiple time periods gives it the illusion of being longer than just 16 episodes. Both also have a great balance of humor and drama. If you like supernatural without horror, I believe you will enjoy both of these shows.

Like in Soul Eater , relationship between 'meister' and 'weapon' or 'eve' and 'servamp' plays big role in plot of the series. If meister/eve don't cooperate well with his/her servamp/weapon it can cause problems or even death of another character. Both main characters of the series live together while increasing knowledge of other also caring more about themselves and their friends adn also going to meet their goal like defeating the main antagonist or 'help becoming his/her weapon a Death Scythe'.

Thank you Studio BONES! Soul Eater and Kekkai Sensen have one huge thing in common aside from BONES, and that's style! Both take place primarily in "America" and they share a certain American flair.

Alright so hear me out on this one: the animation styles are VERY similar (look at "Death" and "Sucy") (despite being "Bones" V "trigger") both have humor that are very similar and both have a fairy tale, magical, supernatural part to them. Both are focused on an academy to train the kids in (whatever it is they do). Best way i can describe it is if Soul Eater and harry potter had a baby...?

They're both really similar without all the ecchi, even though Blair does have her ecchi moments. If you like the action scenes a lot but didn't like the ecchi parts, watch Soul Eater, there are a lot of comedic moments. The art is also really colorful in Soul Eater, you won't get bored!

Although this two are not very similar in the plot or characters, they both give you a similar vibe and feelings. Characters fight in pairs and have been born with special powers, about which they were/are learning in special school only for such children.
