Both animes have similar dymanics in the relations between main characters: an older, stronger servant who protects a weaker, younger master. Also, the topic of hell/Abyss that threatens one of the characters is kind of similar. Both animes are very nice in the visual aspect, dramatic but with some humor to lighten the mood.

They both involve solving multiple mysteries in the beginning of the series and end up with a big thrilling finale!

Both are superhuman beings (Sebastian and Alucard) under contract to english nobility (Ciel and Integra). Even though the main aim of the two animes are different, (revenge vs elimination of vampires), they are almost cut from the same cloth! However, Hellsing tends to be darker and more bloody.

Mysteries, dark settings, detectives..If you liked Death Note you might like Kuroshitsuji, though it's not that serious and a more funny setting. (There are Shounen-Ai hinted themes in Kuroshitsuji, so for the LxLight shippers, you can get your moments in Kuroshitsuji too)

They are very similar -- a story of a demon serving a child from a rich family. Perhaps a bit darker with less humor, but the core is the same.

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. 
report Recommended by Monkey_D_Luffy
Both have the same elements: butlers , "bochan", bishonens, elegance, demons, contracts, fanservice with shonen ai background tones, even the fonts of the titles are almost alike, the same setting and feeling, with dark aura but with comedy very funny, the story in both are almost alike because of the contents. But I found Kuroshitsuji a little darker.

Both the protagonists of Kuroshitsuji and Code Geass are very similar - from the fact they both follow the way of self-destruction and vengeance to the order issuing abilities and proficiency in chess.
In general, Ciel looks like a chibi version of Lelouch, not smart and skilled enough to pwn anyone he wants through strategy, relying on his butler Sebastian instead. (btw one of Shinigami in Kuroshitsuji is voiced by Jun Fukuyama.) English nobility, royal family members, tons of pathos, the only difference is XIX and XXI centuries, so no mecha in Kuroshitsuji.

Though the plots and story line are completely different, the main characters seem to have similarities.

First off, Ciel and Ritsuka are both 12. Though they have different voice actors, their voices sound extremely similar. They're both stubborn and have snarky attitudes throughout the series. They have also both lost something precious to them. Ciel his family, and Ritsuka his older brother. Both lost their relatives due to fires. (in Loveless, this is directed via anime, as to where the manga tells otherwise about his brother's 'status'.)

Soubi and Sebastian are similar as well. Both have extrodinary powers and call the main characters  read more

The two main characters look strikingly alike and many of the people who have enjoyed Kuroshitsuji have been known to love Nabari No Ou as well. =3
But I suppose it's not just that, people who enjoy Kuroshitsuji just seem to be very compatible with NnO too. ^^ (Neither is Shounen-ai btw)

Both are supernatural shows in which a demonic being which has assumed the form of a beautiful man is bound to serve a human boy. In both cases, the demon is loyal to his master to a certain extent but relatively neutral in terms of good and evil. Both shows also have a variety of silly characters in the background, including a clumsy maid.

Both of these animes have the same supernatural dark themed atmosphere, and it has the same theme of having a strong bond between it's two male protagonists (yami no matsuei's shounen ai is much more exposed though).

In both series, there's a fantasy like feeling with a more sophisticated style of its artwork.

The main male protagonist is a young boy; although they have very different personalities. However, it focuses on his relationship with others as well as the people he meets along the well.

Both series also gives off a gothic like feeling with its artwork and also a small sense of mystery.

Both anime's are set in a world full of richdom and welth. I think the art is also kind of similar, but I don't know if other people agree. Kuroshitsuji also has those random funny moments like Ouran High School Host Club. Here's a funny fact: Both main-characters (in Ouran High School Host Club it's Haruhi, and in Kuroshitsuji Ciel) are voiced by the same seiyuu! Ouran High School Host Club & Kuroshitsuji both have shounen-ai hinted themes.

Kuroshitsuji concerns certain uncommon interactions between butler and master. Vampire Knight does not concern demons/angels/shinigami. If you really enjoyed either this one or Vampire Knight then you will love this next series (if you're into vampires). Vampire Knight is more focused on dark romance involved with vampires and humans with a love triangle in the mix and a dark secret that will unravel itself later in the story.

I'm surprised nobody has recommended Kuroshitsuji yet as an alternate anime to FMA. While Kuro was produced by A-1 Pictures and FMA was produced by Bones, they've got a LOT in the way of similarities.

- For starters, they're both adaptations of relatively popular manga series that ended up diverging from their source material half-way through their respective runs.
- The original stories that these shows ended up following were significantly darker than what took place in their first halves.

The art quality and the air of mystery are very similar in both. Both have humor and a dark past. 
report Recommended by amabebe
Firstly, both were produced by Square Enix.
Both have eye-patches, Shinigami, contracts, death, and a dark mood.
But the most notable similarities are those between the characters: in both series we have the usually clumsy meganekko (Michiru/Meilin), the gay man who provides some comedy (Hakka/Grell), the always calm and kinda tedious Chinese guy whose eyes are constantly shut (Toho/Lau), the emotionless pretty girl (Kuze/Ranmao), the weird and non-human ferryman/grave-digger (Bekko/Undertaker), the cute and cheerful shota boy (Yuta/Finnian), and even the domesticated wolf (Raika/Pluto).
That said, Zombie Loan is way better.

At first it doesn't seem similiar at all.
But there is some things that connect these series and I probably only noticed because I watched them one after another (I watched Natsume immediately after Kuroshitsuji).

Both have a contract with a demon who promises to eat them after all is done (or in Natsume's case when there is an opening.)
In both cases the main lead is about the only one who knows about it.
Furthermore the male leads seem similiar in personality, appearing adult, serious and short-tempered.

While Black Lagoon and Kuroshitsuji look different on the surface, they are both excellent at bringing across the feeling of darkness, more specifically, darkness within humans. Both are crime-infested shows, that have one or more completely badass characters, and one or more that'll send a chill down your spine. The only real difference between the two, is that Black Lagoon has more realism to the fighters (they're all humans) and Kuroshitsuji has more realism to the setting it's placed in (Victorian England).

If you really like Doki Doki, you might just love Black Butler! Doki Doki Precure often makes references to Black Butler. You can additionally get easily hooked to the two endings they both have. Not to mention, they both have butlers with the same name. Don't forget the epic battle scenes! Just switch the gender roles, Doki Doki is like a feminine version of Black Butler and vice versa.

How is a romantic slice of life comedy similar to an action packed anime with supernatural stuff happening almost every episode, including demons and the like? Not at all! But if you liked the characters from one of these two, then you will find the other anime's characters stunningly similar. Of course not completely the same, not even in the gender department. It might be a good gateway for a person that wants to get into rom-coms or action, supernatural animes, thanks to how familiar the characters will feel.

Maybe people wont find this similar, but i think they have their similarities. Both are shonen, and im so used to them that i liked them both.
They have this demon thing in their main characteres, that make them have to hide their really personallity from others outside the world. I really like the relationships Sebastian-Ciel and Rin-Yukio-Shirou, thats another similaritie. And these animes have strong and lovely secondary characters like Mephisto o Shura in Ao no Exorcist and Grell and Undertaker in Kuroshitsuji.

Black Butler [BB] (Kuroshitsuji) i feel is very similar to Unbreakable Machine Doll [UMD]. BB has elements of mystery and plot twists, but it is much 'darker' than UMD. Both have master and those who they control and both are set in olden England. Both main roles go to young males set out to gain revenge for their lost family members and both make unusual friends.
there is much more "ecchi" in UMD however. Both have good fight scenes where the master 'battles' with their doll/butler.

Both shows revolve around a team of people solving cases that have to do with the supernatural. Although Kuroshitsuji includes demons, shinigamis and similar creatures, Ghost Hunt revolves more-so around spirits and hauntings. Regardless, what these two shows have in common are the 3-4 episode arcs that are tie together to describe a full story.

If you're a SebaCiel shipper like I am, then Super Lovers is the closest you're going to get to SebaCiel being canon. The teenage protagonist (Ren) looks eerily similar to Ciel, while Haru is absolutely eye candy, just like Sebastian. There is also a power struggle between the two, just like there is between Ciel and Sebastian (even though his contract states he has to obey his master, no matter what).
Just take my word for it and watch Super Lovers.

The animes grab you each with a backstory that develops the plot as a whole. Luckly each anime has a comic relief for the intensity of the action grabs you. Honestly I watched them both with in a week because once I watched two episodes I was hooked. Although they are hardly related each has a character viewed above all else and is in need of being protected. We all have someone we want to protect in our lives and that is why these animes grabbed me so much.

Both have very dark supernatural plots where many people die and the protagonist tries to solve the mystery behind those deaths. While Kuroshitsuji focus on comedy, drama and demons, Shiki focus in psychological, drama and vampires.
The protagonist seeks revenge for something that happened to him. Both have an outstanding soundtrack and voice actors, as well a very unique art, where the outfits are great.
Although, Shiki is very slow paced and Kuroshitsuji fast paced, they will both leave you addicted if you watch them until the end~~

This may sound as a strange recommendation, because how do a bread anime & a demon butler anime compare?...
But the more you go into Kuroshitsuji, the more you notice similarities. Sometimes in characters, but mostly of all, in the sense of humor.
For example, the episodes about the Indian people could've came straight out of Yakitate!! Japan and you never would've noticed the difference :-D

In Hakkenenden, the way that Sousuke values and takes care of Shino, and the way that Shino trusts Sousuke to take care of his daily needs (eating, sleeping, riding first class on trains) reminds me of Ciel’s relationship with his butler Sebastian in Kuroshitsuji. However, Shino and Sousuke have more of a brotherly/friendship relationship and Ciel and Sebastian’s is darker and based on a mutually beneficial contract. Still, both Sousuke and Sebastian have that calm, protective demeanor in taking care of their pretty, younger charges. There is also hints of shounen ai in both these relationships.

Also, the characters Sebastian and Haruhi are similar in the way that they can pull off basically anything at all. And sometimes when they do it's just absolutely hilarious.

Though set in different time periods and geographical locations, they both feature fantastic character designs and tight, elegantly choreographed action sequences. Thematically, characters in both series struggle with what constitutes good and evil, as well as the meaning of being human.

They both have demon's, especially they protect someone whom they are close with like Sebastian protecting Ciel, Dante protecting Patty.That's what they are common with ^_^.

Both are full of dark mysteries but sometimes funny. Sebastian and Kaname have quite similar personalities.

Both are about daily life (in a fishing village and in a mansion), but both have an underlying sinister theme (unknown monster lurking in the depths and demon butler).
