Both anime feature people with "supernatural" powers fighting against normal people and others with "supernatural" powers. One group cares for and protects humanity while the other group cares nothing for human life and only wishes to strengthen their own power. In "Tokyo ESP" the supernatural powers are described as being ESP while in "X-Men" the powers are described as "Mutations". Both also take place in real places.

Very similar powers and theme: This is for both Zettai Karen Children series and The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke series - We have an organization/ group similar to Professor X School for Mutants---ZKC-BABEL who want to create a world where Espers and Normals can coesist. Similar to Mutants and Humans in X-Men. Here they train Espers to use their powers for good while there are evil people who use them too. Another organization/ group similar to Magneto.

Both series have characters who are gifted with extraordinary powers (in X-Men they have them via mutation and in Hamatora they have "Minimum" powers) but they live in a society that hates and fears them. In both series, the villain/villain group tries to give these powers to ordinary people by using their organs but their motivations are different. In Hamatora, the villain is after an "equal world" while in X-Men, the villains want to get stronger and become superior. Both series also deal with the possibility of having more than one power with possible side effects (secondary mutation).

"Akame ga Kill!" and "X-Men" involve a team of powerful heroes each with their own unique abilities setting out to defeat the overwhelming force of evil and restore justice. Both series are focused on action and contain materials regarding body-manipulations, whether it was via surgical or genetic methods.

Darker Than Black and X-Men are about a group of beings with supernatural powers that contains many mysteries yet to be revealed. In addition, discrimination plays a role between those with power and no power.

Both animes relate to characters who have "superpowers" or are above average humans in some way. Many of the characters in both of the series sometimes struggle to come to terms with their powers.

Both have individuals with special abilities working together as a team, set in the modern times. Both shows also deal with prejudice of those with special abilities.
