Classic manga based on immense power and manliness. Great reading.

Both series contain a headstrong protagonist and an arch rival, who in one way or another ruined their pasts, so now protagonists seek revenge and are trying to find a way to stop them. The atmosphere in both mangas is similar when it comes to battles and will to fight as well as mythological themes.

Same author expressing similar tone of heroism against supernatural forces although Baoh is centered on science fiction while Phantom Blood is based on horror.

Both are inspired by Fist of The North Star. Sakigake!! Otokojuku starts off as a gag manga with it quickly transitioning as a battle series with a very good tournament arc. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is very horror-based but contains the same masculine tone in parts 1-3. If you like one then you'll more than likely enjoy the other.

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood and Devilman are extremely similar story wise, both being about a young boy and their defiant friend finding out about a mysterious mask which will grant a person with a supernatural power, then later haven grown up, the main characters will have to deal with the consequences brought by the powers of the mask.

Both stories act as the origin of their family lineage; carrying an emphasis on destiny, martial arts, masculinity and tragic story telling.

Same old american comic art style.
Compelling dark supernatural plot.
Both protagonist are looking for the main antagonist who is causing everyone's tragedy.

Both are decades old series published in Weekly Shounen Jump with simillar art and plot. Both use magic and have badass main characters that don't only care about themselves.  
reportRecommended by Staw
Both feature manly characters, interesting and unique themes, and a great sense of comedy.  
reportRecommended by Otawan
Both mangas have three clearly common basics.

I) Battles. As a main resource all characters in both series return to fighting each time they must overcome an enemy or face obstacles. Also, Ryuko and Jonathan have a powerful fighting spirit and both are well skilled.

II) Vengeance. The easiest reason to make a character fight. Both heroes have a desire to avenge their father. Jonathan wants to annihilate Dio Brando, the vampire who killed his father and plan to rule the world. Meanwhile Ryuko wants to discover her father murderer and take revenge.

III) Peculiarity. Both works have really weird moments  read more

While these manga have different genres of horror and science fiction, both series contain characters and events inspired by Fist of The North Star including manly heroics, tragic origins, dying friends, violent battles, and monstrous villains. Lastly, both heroes Jonathan Joestar and Blue follow the belief of enduring tragedies and embracing their kind spirit.

Both have characters named after hard rock and metal bands and have fights that go on forever. 
reportRecommended by metallian
Both have clever fights with lots of strategy and characters with crazy powers. Each HxH arc has a considerably different theme, just like the differente JoJo parts. 
reportRecommended by m4rc0
It would seem Hirano Kouta was deeply inspired by Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and perhaps unconsciously managed to grab a few things over to his giant, Hellsing, such as the principles based on which vampires work, posing and even a few scenes. Regardless of these somewhat apparent similarities, the two works are completely different in style and nature.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure & Kinnikuman are manly series which are still being published today. Both of these manga mark the debut of their current long running status; bearing multiple sequels and spin-offs to their franchise. Kinnikuman is more childish in tone with its wacky character designs but can be dark at violent at times especially when its enemies include satanic figures and corrupt Gods. JoJo's Bizarre Adventure is more horror based but can be as ludicrous as Kinnikuman. Other similarities include: very bizarre events, gritty battles, shonen friendship and the family passage of the next generation of heroes.

Both are for people who appreciate craziness. Along with action, monsters, horror, megalomaniacs, and craziness. And more random craziness. JoJo has a longer story.
