The atmosphere (battles and other) is quite similar with villains popping out and a black/red-haired girl intruding on the days of an innocent male.

These are both fantasy anime about a man who has a contract with a rather skilled girl that comes from nowhere. Moreover, the guy seems really useless at the beginning but will begin to fight along with her. 
report Recommended by ManteR
both have a similar plot where a girl and a guy sign a contract together too fight it seems like there is a lot in common here with the fighting and the action  
report Recommended by jbissel
Both anime begin with male protagonists trying to save a girl only to have a his heart rip apart. They are later saved by the said girl using supernatural means and are dragged into a lot of fights. Both anime are also set in present day world.

Both anime have a male protagonist that makes a contract with supernatural being to escape death. However, as soon is revealed the contract will kill him in time. Both supernatural beings (girls) have also a goal to achive in this world, for wich they need a contractee (finding a memories in Pandora Hearts and killing a sibling in Kurokami).

Both stories have a butt-kicking superpowered female lead. In addition, death is also a common theme in both these stories.

-Both animes are about working with their one and only partner that they searched or met coincidentally to be able to fight after getting involved -Both builds a deep bond between the two 
report Recommended by MagicFlier
While both series are of different plots, what they share in similarities are the character designs and settings, all thanks to the genius at making shonén/seinén manhwa Im Dal Young. Both series contain action, superpowers, gore and fanservice that even the anti-fanservice lobby can't complain about. So if you like one, I suggest trying out the other....and if you need more, then try his work on manhwa.

Both have to do with magical powers and saving the world from evil. The main character is a girl who teams up with a guy and together they stop the bad guys.

These two shows focus on a series of battles, and despite their different settings, have some noticeable similarities in their mismatched protagonist duo's. Both stories revolve around a pair who is out to change the world. Character relations and the background story is similar for both series.  
report Recommended by DarkZar
both have a similar plot where a girl and a guy make a pact where the Guy help the girl unlock their true power. both are VERY similar in that and they have to fight others with special ability and both girls are fighters (Fight with their fist) 
report Recommended by AkatsukiUlquiora
These anime are very similar when you are looking at the magical aspects and the style of fighting. They are both very good series that are worth the watch. Even though Full metal they practice alchemy, the style of magic practiced in kurokami is similar and the power used is similar.  
report Recommended by lovelydeath
Both anime are very mysterious and has a dark tone that can be very disturbing  
report Recommended by bloody_Venus55
They both have the guy gets dragged into something they don't want to do at first plus the female lead is clumsy and silly.  
report Recommended by gamerhead22
both hero weaken their heroine power when they both first met the hero and heroine made a contract in both series and both have some horror genre 
report Recommended by waraugyu
Kurokami and Dragon Ball are both for people who like punching and fight action anime. 
report Recommended by Smoku
Both are bad-ass anime with seemingly incompetent main characters that team up with a strong fighter. If you like intense fights and some minor romance you'll definitely like this 
report Recommended by Chibi_Hige
the male lead just be a supporter for the female lead and have the same style in fighting 
report Recommended by krisyana
Similar action with dark organizations. Young characters with superpowers and similar urban settings. Both series have the same general feeling. Loaded with action and, at times, emotional character stories.  
report Recommended by Valkyrie_Wings
Kurokami has not the same epic plot as Gurren Lagann, but both of their main characters are battling against their destiny and trying to change it in order to live their lives. It's supposed that the main character can't change his fate, living bounded to it with the thought that it has to be in that way, but somebody make him change his mind and want to live his life on his own way. 
report Recommended by gardab
In both series, the two main characters made a contract which is a double-edged weapon: on a side it allows them to be much more powerful in fighting, but at the same time it steals energy from one of the contractors, who gets his life lenght shortened. Even though Kurokami is focused on super powers and has intense action and drama, while Chrono Crusade is more on the supernatural side and has plenty of silly comedy, both anime have an action-drama-romance mix, plenty of fights, a love-hate relationship between brother and sister, and, above all, identical sad endings. 
report Recommended by RenaPsychoKiller
In both the main guy meets a girl in uncommon circumstances, and thanks to this encounter the guy's life changes drastically, and he gets some kind of super power. Some characters are similar, and also, the above said girl has an older brother in both cases, and the 2 siblings are part of an important and noble clan/family. These series are both shounen with great music, animation, and character design, and with well-done, but dragged-on fights.

Both leading males (Lelouch and Keita) have dealt with immense suffering throughout their lifetimes, both lost their mothers tragically. When their lives get changed by mysterious girls (Kuro and C.C), their true potentials are revealed. Both are produced by Sunrise, and licensed by Bandai. 
report Recommended by webkid94
These two anime are very similar because both are about a female having unknown powers (in the beginning) who happens to grab a male into the mess. 
report Recommended by Em_Leingod
The main character of Kurokami, Kuro, is very similar to Pai in 3 x 3 Eyes. Both characters have a cute/playful side but they also have a dark/dangerous side. In terms of story the shows are also similar so far. An event that occurred in episode 2 of Kurokami reminded me of 3 x 3 Eyes start. I can't say more without spoiling the second episode of Kurokami.

Shounen series about a contract between two people: one who fights, one who gives the power. Both have action, magic, drama, and some romance. 
report Recommended by RenaPsychoKiller
Both are shounen series focused on contracts (usually between a guy and a girl) in which the one who fights absorbs the energy from his/her partner (the Tera in Kurokami, the Soma in SNQ). Same genres: action, super powers, magic, supernatural. SNQ has graphic ecchi content, while Kurokami doesn't. Both have great animation, nice characters, and quite violent fights.

Just to get it out of the way: this 'recommendation' would get a tad technical if it focused on arm loss. In the manga, Kurokami's lead, Keita, loses his arm at the start and has it replaced with someone else's as part of a life-saving contract. In both Parasyte's manga and anime, its lead, Shinichi, also has his arm replaced by another lifeform. So, a superficial similarity exists. HOWEVER, this becomes confusing due to Kurokami's anime being a bastardised version where, instead of arm swapping, HEARTS are exchanged. And in Parasyte... /spoiler ...but I'm not here to compare the two based on arms/hearts. That would be  read more

Both anime have a male and female duo. The female has some special power and bonds with the male to create a greater power. In both anime the pair need each other to overcome the organizations/individuals that are out to get them. 
report Recommended by kcrosson
Though Loveless is arguably rather shounen-ai, both anime involve similar battle systems in that a pair is required to fight to maximize their chance of success, and that one part of the pair fights while the other provides power. Both anime also involve a shady organization that the main protagonists fight against. 
report Recommended by loco-mocos
Both male leads have the same name; also they both have a powerful female partner that they have made a contract with. 
report Recommended by Unitedsticks
Both have the similar plot of a male to female sharing of bodies/souls. If you like either one, then you should give the other a go! 
report Recommended by Brighton
In both anime characters have a contract with another. And the more they synchronize the more powerful it is.
