Both stories have similarity, between the Contractor and the Demon. They also have similar style and era. Characters wear Victorian-dress and Gothic style. The main characters have same deep conflict regarding their past times.
These manga have different plots and yet, many similarities:
- Beautiful artwork
- Victorian Era fantasy
- The main hero makes a contract with a supernatural being in order to discover his past, the secrets surrounding his family and loved ones.
However, PH focus a lot more on romance/friendship, while Kuroshitsuji has a focus more on mystery. Still, both present you with lots of action, adventure and mostly, with unexpected twists that will leave you speechless for quite some time.
The characters make you get attached to them, with complex personalities and backstories. There are no gary stu or mary sue and you'll be surprised and never get bored because the story progresses in a way that always keeps you wanting to know more.
If you liked one, you'll most likely like the other:D  read more
Both stories have a similar dark and creepy atmosphere and have a Victorian setting. The protagonists of each series is a high-ranking nobleman (well, boy) that have made a contract that is probably going shorten their life spans considerably.
i first read PH than kuroshitsuji, && i can tell that while im rading Kuroshitsuji, i have this same feeling while reading PH too. i mean, it'll give you lots of emotions. you'll laugh, cry & get mad too!creeps & darkness are together. both are great manga. im sure you'll definitely get addicted to both of it.:)
Both series have a sort of fantasy Victorian theme, though Pandora Hearts focuses more on fantasy and Kuroshitsuji on Victorian. Kuroshitsuji is, overall, darker than Pandora Hearts, though Pandora Hearts does have a fair share of horror, but neither are without humor.
Both series have a gothic themes, contract with an unknown force for the sake of survival and have somewhat twists as the series process. The artstyle from Pandora Hearts and Kuroshitsuji are very well-drawn, clothes are drawn very detailed. They also share similar humor. Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that both series are from Square Enix.
Kuroshitrsuji and Pandora Hearts are lot alike. In both stories something tragic has happened in the past. There are supernatural powers and both have a lot of comedy and adventure. both are truly amazing stories with a contract between the two main characters. These two stories will make you laugh, cry, and make you want to punch that one person in your class whom you hate. They both take place in the past around the Victorian Era. While Kuroshitsuji has a gothic style of art and story and Pandora Hearts has a brighter and cheerful aura the two stories will always make you love one of the main characters. Well I know I do. read more
Both Pandora Hearts and Kuroshitsuji deal with servants and their masters. In both of these, the master is a (in the words of Sharon from Pandora Hearts) "shota" type and the servants are "bishounen". Both of the masters in these series have a dark auras to them at times (although Oz seems nicer than Ciel at first glance) and both of these series involve contracts plus lots of bishounen. These manga both have dark/Gothic atmostpheres to them and both are set in a European setting.
Not only do Pandora Hearts and Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) have a similar style with their settings, there are also numerous similarities when it comes with the general setup. For instance, there is the concept of a 'contract' between two main characters. The story feels like a fantasy adventure with darker tones and motives as the series progresses. In light of this, the relationship between the two main characters are the most fascinating as we get to see different side of them. Recommended for anyone looking for a fantasy adventure with an elegant Victorian setting.
-Both main characters make a contract with an demon being to get out of a nasty situation, are born into the upper class, and will died once the contract is over (Well in Pandora Heart the contractor may as well be dead)
-The demon beings are used for protection and fighting
-Both series have a servant-and-master relationship with the demon being and contractor
-You have no idea what happened in the past traumatic event with both series.
-Both main characters are searching for something but the things are different
--Both are not finished and are a page turner(at least in my opinion) but Pandora Hearts does have several plot twisters
--And finally both have been made into good Animes that start the same way but end up having a different plot then the Mangas read more
If you're a crazy kuroshijitsu fangirl who likes ghotique fantasy stories, Pandora Hearts is the perfect manga for you! It has: great characters, hosbendos and waifus, feels, comedy, feels, and -yaoi- shipping!
But in all seriousness tho, Pandora Hearts is a great manga with unique and lovable characters with a story that goes deeper then Kuroshitsuji in my opinion (although, I have to admit that Kuroshitsuji is better on comedy level).
Similar in that they both deal with monsters from other dimensions.
Alot of action and great animation [drawing]
The main character is also one that is "special" which separates him from the rest of the characters.
Pandora Hearts and D.Gray-Man have stories that are focused around a group of people protecting the earth, or the people they love, from dark monsters that reek havoc on the world. There's also a lot of similarities between characters: Break (PH) with Lavi (DGM) and Oz (PH) with Allen (DGM) being the biggest similarities that I can make.
-Both main characters are boys and have traveling companions.
-Both battle agains strange creatures for P.H. it's Chains for D. Gray-Man it's Akuma.
-Oz has Jack just as Allen has 14th.
-Both kids have special weapons they use to defeat there respective creatures.
-Both boys are about the same age.
-I'm pretty sure both have some messing with time but my theory of that hasn't been proven with D. Gray-Man.
Now if you've actually read D.Gray-man/Pandora Hearts (not just watched the sub-par adaptations), they're both really good manga with good plots and such.
Pandora Hearts is similar to D.Gray-man because they both can be light hearted and fun then switch in a matter of one page to dark and violent. Both are extremely well-written, especially, with the plot-twists that leave you wondering- you don't have a clue what will happen. I think that Allen (D.Gray-man) and Oz (Pandora Hearts) have a lot of things in common.
They both have the same "feel" to them. Also, they both are underrated and quickly dismissed because of their not-very-good adaptations. Both are extremely good, I highly recommend you read both. (Probably Pandora Hearts first since it's only 108 chapters, while D.Gray-man is more than twice that (219) AND still on-going)
Both stories start with fragments of the past of the main characters and the story itself. They also hint a lot a things that'll happen in the future, some you only notice after reading them for a second time. In the beginning there are lot of short stories with non-important characters but the development of these stories will make difference as the story goes.
Both main characters, Allen and Oz (and Alice, in Pandora Hearts) don't know who they really are, and during the story they'll start discovering about their past and about their true self.
Both stories are also full of plot twists, action, deaths and dramatic moments. As soon as the first plot twist start, you can't stop reading! read more
D. Gray-man and Pandora hearts are very similar. They are both dark and light-hearted, though Pandora might feel lighter for more of each chapter than D. Gray-man. Pandora Hearts's plot line is also intricately woven with mysteries and secrets that you'll want to read more to find out. These are both extremely good stories if you love mysteries and interesting plots.
Both manga display some similarities like, for instance:
- A Powerful Organization (Pandora/Circus) & some weird monsters.
- An alternative fantasy World, where PH is set in an alternative Victorian Era and Karneval in a Modern Steampunk World.
- A blonde happy go lucky main character (Oz/Yogi) that apparently has no problems, but later on some secrets are revealed.
IMO, I like PH better because of certain elements you do not find in Karneval: While PH & Karneval start with a happy feeling, PH soon becomes heart wrenching,leading to a profound character development and an intricate twisted plot, while Karneval manages to keep the happy feeling by shortening the drama scenes and making soft transitions. Still, both are mangas that heavily rely on the message of true friendship and that is the central theme: "your friend is your family, you will protect them, they will protect you" is a quote that could define both plots, even if they are dealt in a completely opposite manner. Also, in both mangas the males are predominately more well developed than the females. Take for instance, Alice (PH) & Tsukumo (Karneval) which are badass, but frequently overshadowed by the males´s strong and meaningful presence. In general, I would say if You like one of these manga, you'll certainly enjoy the other, they both have gorgeous artwork and most of all, very likable characters.  read more
Both have organizations surrounding the main character. Also the main characters have a mystery including knowing very little about themselves, with a connection to a enigmatic person . The artwork in both is especially magnificent as well.
Karneval and Pandora Hearts have a similar art style, and though their setting is far of being similar (Pandora Hearts sets on an historical world while Karneval focus on a modern world and sci-fi) both have Organizations (Circus/Pandora) which fight against monsters and possessed people (Chains/Varuga), and both have characters which have a hidden dark past and suffer of memory loss.
When reading both of these titles you start to notice the similarities to one another.
both start out being more or less light hearted, as the story progresses they become much darker as the story and the characters start changing in unexpected ways, which can be both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
The story's it self are both nicely written as the authors pay attention to the details and symbolism, most everything is connected in someway which makes it interesting, like putting pieces of a puzzle together. This aspect especially in Pandora Hearts, when this is certainly true for Tsubasa, Pandora Hearts has more of a mysterious vibe, figuring out exactly what happened and why, when Tsubasa is more about the journey, doing what they can to change the situation they are in.
The art of the two manga's are also very similar, not just how its drawn but where the panels are placed and what affects they use, in both the art of the manga starts to improve quite a bit as the chapters progress, the art in the starting of both the manga are certainly not bad there actually really good, but the art does get more cleaner and detailed, particularly the shading in Tsubasa improves the most, when in Pandora Hearts the art improves altogether.
both of these mangas have similar genres, adventure, fantasy, drama. though both would be considered shounens (oddly even with its shoujo feel Tsubasa was published in Shounen Magazine. Most likely because of the blood and dark nature of the later volumes) they fall into a category more in between shounen and shoujo having the best of both. (If you had to pick between the two, Tsubasa would be more leaning towards shoujo when Pandora Hearts is more towards Shounen).
Some more smaller similarities, both search for scattered memories fragments both in their worlds and in others.
There are certain chapters where similar things happen to the characters, although I won't go into that because of spoilers.
Even some quotes are similar and remind you of one another, its like the authors seem to have the same type of ideas when writing.
If your a fan of one I'm sure you'd be a fan of the other, Highly recommended to anyone who has read either of these mangas, or even if you haven't. read more
Pandora Hearts and Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE have the main goal of the male protagonist trying to help the female protagonist get their memories back. There are some great conflicts, both mental and physical, that show in both series for that reason. There are a lot of character similarities as well: Break (PH) with Fai (TRC), Gil (PH) with Kurogane (TRC), and Shalon (PH) with (TRC). There are a few other characters that are similar to each other, but those are the main ones.
Both start off simply but turn out extremely complex and have a lot of plot twists and mind-boggling mysteries. Pandora Hearts, like Tsubasa, has the main lead in search of a girl's memories, and the story revolves around a journey that forever changes the characters' lives, as well as the world itself.
Both get notably darker as the story progresses.
These stories have many similarities, like already mentioned by other recommendations before.. But these is not same, both is still epic in each it's own way..
Both story start with the fantasy theme where there is travel between dimensions, and the story advanced with the searching of main female character lost memories..
Both story is full with many beautiful trademarks like feathers, flowers, etc ...
Both stories is full of sad tragedies, you will be made to pity to the characters within ...
Pandora Hearts and Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE both takes place in a fantasy world where there are endless possibilities. Throughout both series, there is an conflict of identity issues and lost memory. The main male protagonist tries to help the main girl to get her memories back but faces difficult challenges throughout their journey. There are plot twists as other characters gets involved - both allies and enemies. Furthermore, there are moments of happiness and joy while there are also days of tragedy and sorrow. Recommended for fans of fantasy/adventure with a complex story.
If you like the complex plot twists and characters with mysterious pasts in Pandora Hearts, I suggest you read TRC. Its one of Clamps best works and like Pandora hearts it will mess with your mind. You'll love it :)
It's by the same author so the feelings and atmosphere around it are very similar. Some characters are also very similar both in looks and personality with some of the Pandora Hearts characters. I also tend to believe they both happen during the same time period aka the 19th century basing myself on the clothes, just that Pandora hearts happens in England while Vanitas no Carte in France.
Sorry for bad English, I used google translator to write this.
It is the same author, has similar traits, characters that somehow resemble those of Pandora Hearts, and appear to have a plot as dark and complex as.
Although Pandora Hearts is considerably less violent and gritty than Dorohedoro, they are both mysteries revolving around characters with lost memories who want to find out who they really are and how their past relates to the present. Except that in Pandora Hearts, instead of one character having identity issues, it's practically the whole main cast.
Dorohedoro is definitely a lot more violent and brutal than Pandora Hearts, but the fact that the plots deal with similar things concerning memory, past lives etc etc, makes them both manga that one should read
Thematically, both are very similar to one another, as each revolve around the concept of forgotten identities and a history that may have been better left disclosed. Character motivations and attributes are similar, and each of the settings boast original magic not seen in other series' in well crafted, oftentimes bizarre worlds.
At first glance, Dorohedoro and Pandora Hearts have nothing in common. But once you get past the visual, and deeper into the minds of the characters and the themes of the story (missing memories, seeing how your past life relates to the world of the present), you begin to see many similarities. Pandora Hearts is considerably less violent, but hey, there's still decapitations, child murder, massacres and so on. PH also gets compared a lot to other irrelevant series because they look similar/have similar styles or settings while no no similarities in story content or character complexity, but make no mistake, this is the manga it should be compared to. And if you like both these manga, I also recommend you read Berserk, which is similar to both. read more
Pandora Hearts and Dorohedoro both revolve around a main protagonist with lost memories. And throughout their perspective stories, more are uncovered about their character. Although different from a standard viewpoint (with Dorohedoro being much more violent), both of their worlds contain main abnormalities and phenomenons that defies the laws of nature. I recommend both series for those into supernatural fantasy with a taste of mystery involving the characters and their stories.
Pandora is abit similar to FMA, Ed is a person who as a child had his father leave him , while in Pandora hearts, Oz's father abandons him and though they are entirely for different reasons, it still has the aspects of their father's being a mystery. Both FMA and Pandora hearts have deep plots such as Homunculus being mysterious group that have unknown intentions, while in Pandora hearts, the Baskervilles are a family whose leader is unknown and their intentions also unknown. They both contain fights which explore characters,different abilities as well as the theme of immature main characters who start growing out of it. read more
Both have pseudo-European settings with a bit of light "magic"; the main character (Ed, Oz) is forced into working for an organization after having a horrible experience. They both have to prevent a repeat of the past which could destroy the world.
Both series have large casts of interesting characters on both the good and bad side, as well as ones who you don't know which side they're on; the main bad guy stays in the shadows for a long time. Have an alternate dimension (the gate, the abyss). Have heavy mysteries, plot twists, and suspense. Don't have a huge amount of violence, and practically zero ecchi. Some scary monsters, though.
Ed and Oz have similar personalities; though Ed is more forceful, and Oz more happy-go-lucky. Both have lost their mothers and were abandoned by their fathers.
The art styles are different from each other, but each is very distinctive and memorable. FA is definitely shounen; PH seems to lean a little more toward shoujo (it has lots of bishounens). Both are rather long, and it takes a while to get to the core story, but if you're patient, you get there. read more
Both series seem to be contained, shorter series, not long manga like Bleach or One Piece. Each involves a consispiracy with fantastical elements. The center of both is a boy, although Ed and Oz are supposedly a couple years apart. They both deal beautifully with the issues they raise, and both give us unbelievable twists. Most importantly, they are both fantastic manga, some of the best out there.
Sorry for bad English, I used google translator to write this.
PH (pandora hearts) and FMA (fullmetal Alchemist) has several similarities, among which the following stand out:
-history complex and dark with time
- try to match shounen with comedy
-has a lot of focus on the story
Extremely well-built and charismatic characters
Both mangas create a rather suspenseful atmosphere with random comedy brought in everywhere. They all have strong friendship bonds and have many situations which urge you to read on.
...Personally I just think these two genres fit well with each other since all of my friends which read Pandora Hearts enjoyed 07 Ghost (real reason)
Also both characters become involved with their past which gradually builds the lead of the story. Teito is fighting to regain his memories and Oz and Alice receive shock and confusion from their memories...in a way....
In any case 07 Ghost is highly recommended.
Both 07-Ghost and Pandora Hearts have the same feeling when you first read it. The main chara Oz Vessalius and Teito Klein has become the target of the antagonist chara.
And both of the main chara "searching for the truth behind the past memories".
Somehow the art is look similar. Read it!
Alice in Wonderland references. The character designs are quite similar. The main characters - Oz and Alice (AYA?) are dragged into a abyss/world where they don't belong. They're personalities are quite similar but Alice seems a bit older than Oz. Gil/Mad-hatter has to protect Oz/Alice. Gil and Mad-hatter are very similar in character design and personality.
Both characters are dragged into a plot where they have to find something. Alice, a white rabbit and Oz, shards of memories.
Genres are also very similar.
Note: Alice is a guy.
In both the main protagonist is a blonde boy who is dragged to a dangerous world where supernatural creatures exist. Also many similarities in the characters situations or personalities: a noble girl who befriends the protagonist, a guy with lack of memories, a tormented cat that is related to Alice's past, a mysterious important character that appears in visions/dreams, a girl that hates and blames someone for a certain situation, a boy that did everything for the person he cared for, even if that costs the life of others, a cruel character that reigns in the wonderland. If you liked one, you certainly like the other. read more
Both of them are quasi-homages to Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and both have the same feel to them--somewhat funny comedy mixed with twisted storytelling and artwork. Although neither is an adult manga (in the hentai sense), they take even darker journeys down the rabbit hole than Carroll's story does. Plus, anyone who wants beautiful bishounen and pretty artwork should check these out. Despite the fact that neither manga is identical to the other, the tones are similar enough that this is an easy recommendation.
Both of them are from Jun Mochizuki, so there are a lot of similarities everywhere. Main character, Claudia, looks like a younger version of Alice (main character from PH) and not only this, chara design is generally very similar! This manga is like a little sister for Pandora Hearts... And has a lot of bishonens and very good plot too!
Crimson Shell was a sort of early incarnation of Jun Mochizuki's later work, Pandora Hearts. Both have her signature drawing style, and several of the character designs are similar. Both have similar settings and themes: An organization was instituted to fight against monsters, there is a girl who is one of those monsters but is different and more powerful. She has been forced to join the organization. A crucial part of the story is her trust in an older man, and how it seems that trust is betrayed. Lots of intrigue and magic. CS is only one volume, though.
It took me a while to think up the connection between these two manga because it is rather settle, but then it struck me....PLOT TWISTS FOOOREEEVEEER!!! Its so great, cos both give you a sense of "i dooon't knooow who the bad guys are anyyymoooore!!". They allow the reader to see both sides of the supposed "evil" and "good" characters and show what a thin line there is between the two. Both of these manga are EXCELLENT, all the characters have beautiful designs and great personalites
Nabari no Ou and Pandora Hearts are both in depth, character centric, emotionally moving manga series with elements of fantasy and magic. Both have majestic art styles and memorable characters, and break the conventions of typical adventure manga. There is a great emphasis on character interaction and the emotional development of the characters, both main and side characters, is spot on.
Pandora Hearts and Yumekui Merry has a familiar feel with the fantasy world and style. Both series' main female protagonists are very mysterious and has a connection with the main character. Throughout their story, we learn much more about the various organizations and its darker themes. Both series are also known for their supernatural content that highlights unnatural events. Recommended for fans looking for a fantasy-mystery story.
I like to think of Kubera like a great combination between Pandora Hearts and One Piece.
Both Pandora Hearts & Kubera are beautiful and painful tragedies that will shake your heart, with a protagonist that develops dramatically through the story.
The atmosphere in both stories very similar- a dark and deep storyline with comedy to balance everything.
The stories also contain a wide cast of great and complicated characters. Every character in the story has a unique and fun personality, all of them has their role to play in the story- non of them is unnecessary.
Fun plot twists and beautiful, touching to the heart artwork (though it starts pretty weak in Kubera) also included!
Highly recommending both of them. read more
if you read both this manga , will notice it's quotes some things from the novel 'alice in wonderland' particulary in arc lily 'the door and garden , complexity memories , even the family name 'alice in' doudo , the twins and clock , i think that lily he's bunny .
Not too much similar plot-wise but it has that slightly gothic atmosphere to it, both main characters are royalty and also have rather similar personalities. Plus, within the story there is a talk of contracts and the ability to summon demons. If you do like Pandora Hearts I can assure that you willl enjoy Makai Ouji - Devils and Realist too.
I might be wrong but I think the similarity is that both Pandora Hearts and Heart no kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~ kind of related to Alice in Wonderland. Alice in Pandora Hearts is both the rabbit (B-rabbit) and Alice. Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~ has bishie rabbit guy and Alice from foreign country.
I can say the most mutual thing in both manga is that the main genre is mystery and MC characters are really similar. MC female from PH and MC male character from Metronome are ready to kill only to protect the one they need/care about. The atmosphere is dark and each chapter shows new secrets who are confusing you more and more..
These 2 mangas have so much in common - I love it ^0^
Both can be dark at times, as well as occasionally humorous - consist of a large cast , involve past lives, magic, plot twists, violence, romance, a Victorian setting, morally gray characters, brotherly love (not in an incest way), a mystery involving an incident which occurred at a castle - many years before the main cast was born , and characters looking for the answers involving their lost memories (relating to their past lives.)
And maybe, and I say MAYBE, imply shoujo/shounen ai themes - but mostly have straight *cannon* pairings in both mangas. Plus both have characters named Glen. Hmm ... it's creepy how much they have in common XD read more
Both stories twist the readers prospective of reality bringing into question their concept of morality. The adventure is packed full of mysteries to be solved in a world where nothing is quite impossible but everything comes a cost.
Similar manga that builds a fantasy world where different organizations vie for a ultimate goal that could decide the fate of the world. Both manga starts innocently with little details revealed about the fundamental structure of the world. However, the comical misadventure of the protagonists belies the dramatic revelation later in the story that will subvert readers' understanding of the entire story. Betrayals are everywhere, and alliances could switch in a instant. A character is not at all what the readers first thought he would be.
Although both series follow a different set of premise, their world fantasy and colorful cast of characters has some resemblance. Indeed, both series takes on a variety of fantasy elements as the main characters indulge on memorable experiences. There is also a psychological path that follows both series' storyline as the main characters discover startling revelations.
Although they express different goals, Hitsugi no Chaika and Pandora Hearts takes place in a similar setting with fantasy elements. Both series' main characters are searching for something and therefore on a journey of discovery. Throughout that journey, the main main and female protagonist bonds and learn more about their world and one another. There is mystery especially revolving around the origins of both series' main characters as well. If you're looking for a fantasy/adventure series, then give both of these a try as they may appeal your interests.
While they differ greatly in storyline they both have hidden much deeper meanings to their plot. Their stories mess with your head and answer some questions to their mysteries while at the same time adding even more mysteries along the way. They share similar themes and the most of the characters in both series have problems and/or psychological issues that they struggle with. They may come across as dark but they carry very meaningful messages hidden throughout their stories.
They seem cute at first but they are both dark and even creepy at some parts. They mess with your head in more than one way. They share some of the same themes and have similar characters. They deal with pyschological issues and have small amounts of gore here and there but nothing too graphic or a hard to look at.
ive only seen the first chapter of kurenai but it reminded me of pandora hearts right away. ayame really reminds me of alice not in terms of personality but in terms of her role. alice asked oz for a contract , ayame asked Youichi to become her sheep. i cant describe it but if you like one then you should definitely check out the other.
The "Mafia Family" and the families showed in Pandora Hearts are quite similar. And the same we can say about the main characters; they don't really want to be as important as they trully are. They don't want violence or being involucrated always in fightings.
The two of them have a dark side and aura, the atmosphere make you feel the same thing and both of them are historical, tragedy, psychological and dystopia. The most important there is Pandora Hearts and Baraou no Souretsu are my best manga for me.
1) Both works are full of mistery about his respectives themes ( the abyss in "Pandora Hearts" and the wave in "Tate no Yuusha")
2) Both main character want protect to all his loved people even if that mean lose his life
3) The mistery in both works is revealed to measure the story get moving
No. 6 and Pandora Hearts share in common an intriguing, charming eccentricity and focus on genuine character relationships. The art in both is mind-blowingly gorgeous, and both have plots that seem simple at but become much more complicated, interesting, and layered.
The background of each uses fairytales with Kataribe no List using Grimm's various fairytales as items and Pandora Hearts relying on "Alice in Wonderland" to portray parts of the story. What they have more in common though is that they equally have great comedic scenes and interactions between characters which lightens the mood appropriately even when things are serious. Also, albeit the story in Pandora Hearts is a lot more developed and complicated and deals with more themes, they both include a mystery of sorts with the main protagonist(s) being chased by certain enemies, similar plot twists at every corner and not knowing really which is the right or wrong side in the end.
So, for a mix of fantasy, comedy and mystery while giving off the same vibe, both of them would be an easy, enjoyable read. read more
Alice in Wonderland Anthology and Pandora Hearts are manga based on the classic tale by Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland. Jun Mochizuki has something to do with both series. However Alice in Wonderland Anthology is a bunch of stories by different mangaka, while Pandora Hearts is one continuous story. I find them both enjoyable! (Mainly because I love the story of Alice in Wonderland)
I'm not sure if both stories have similar plots.
But I do think that some of the characters in both stories have similarities/ reminds me of this and that
Lark & Oz - They are both cheerful and both are the kind of people who doesn't want anyone to worry about themselves. Both have blonde hair, have red eyes too. (In case you haven't read some later chaps of Pandora Hearts, Oz's eyes became red (lol such spoiler))
Setz & Gilbert - Both were cheerful in their youth days, but became cold after 10 years had passed.
Neal & Break - Both have a problem with one of their eyes. Blue-haired guys.
Ersha & Echo - Both girls are quiet/kind of the people who doesn't show much emotions.
Bathory & Lottie - They smirk a lot.
I don't know why but Carne reminds of me of Sharon. Is it because of the ribbons on their heads plus their close relationship of the blue-haired dudes? xD
Well, that's just all. read more
Pandora Hearts and Zetsuen no Tempest deals tells a fantasy story that is shrouded by mysterious origins. The main female character has a goal and they must seek the truth and identity of their intentions. Both series has a various subplot that ties in the character roles together. In retrospect, expect fantasy tropes and a story about discovery, magic, and identity. Recommended for fans of supernatural and fantasy taking place in an imaginative world.
- Kirito and Oz are protagonists that had troubled pasts and have brave personalities;
- Eugeo and Gilbert act as the protagonist's childhood friend and are their inseparable companions;
- Alice B. and Asuna are brave and beautiful girls that behold an immense power;
- Alice S. and Echo are cold and emotionless girls that are highly competent in combat;
- Similar genres (Drama, Fantasy, Tragedy);
- Romantic subplots (and something that can be interpreted as a "Love Triangle");
- Complex, confusing and downright mind screwing storylines;
- Vincent/Gabriel and Quinella/WotA are great villains/antagonists;
Both series are heavily influenced by Lewis Carrow's work: Alice in Wonderland, they borrow character traits, personalities, themes and suchlike from the novel while still adding their own unique features and attributes to their own stories, they also have charismatic, remarkable and well-rounded characters, epic fights, deep and meaningful themes, some heart wrenching moments and just like the work of art that inspired both series: they're brilliant masterpieces. read more
both are dark, gore-y, psychological, horror, mystery, and well, awesome. Pandora Hearts is about a guy named Oz, who on his 15th birthday, is banished to the Abyss by the "red shinigami". Quote," We judge you now using the chains of conviction. Your sin is your very existence." then chains shoot out from under the ground, dragging him into the ancient prison known in fairy tales as the "Abyss". If I say much more I'll be giving spoilers but it is a must-read.
Both feature characters with deep backstories and mysteries surrounding them, which are unveiled as the story progresses.
Both stories are very well thought out.
Both main characters are young boys.
Pandora Hearts is darker and doesn't have the Harem/Ecchi stuff Negima has.
Both of the characters are warped, with the latest chapters of Pandora Hearts giving you a creepy feeling when they act weirdly, with laughing a bit insanely for instance with a creepy, blank look on their faces. They both have a dark past.
The main characters aren't condsidered humans; the main character in this makes a contract/deal with a vampire, who wants him to become his sort of legacy. Very different with how Oz and Alice are with their contracts, but it's still similiar.
The time period may be somewhat the same since they both wear those royal gowns etc. The protagonist in Pandora Hearts has a personality similar to Fred's. Romance isn't one of its biggies though and its more like action than romance.
In both there exists a chaotic dimension inhabited by beings who could grant your greatest wish in return for blood sacrifice. Both involve characters having to deal with the aftermath of betrayal and a tragic massacre.
Amatsuki is a manga that strikes me to be the very same ,or at least alike, to Pandora Hearts; both of the characters think optimistically, can act very creepy and cool at the same time when very freightened, and are both considered a "key" of somesort to help reach their goals/others goals.
It's a bit hard to explain how they're alike, but I think that they're really alike in so many ways, from looking at them at a different point of view. But Kekkaishi is a manga that shouldn't be passed up either.
Both series are set around the same time period and deal with the underbelly of high society. The strong bond between master and servant is also present in both series as well as a secret organization. The artwork is also similar in style and beauty. Though Godchild is much darker and more mature, both mangas share a macabre supernatural feeling.
Both manga involves the main character into a supernatural world. Both manga have a shonen and dark auro that helps the story line stand-out. Both main characters are protective towards their family and friends and both have their own individuality that helps the stand-out. For Rin in Ao no Exorcist he is the son of satan while Oz in Pandora Hearts have a connection to the Abbys.... Both mangas will keep you hanging but wanting more...
In both in the "past" arc, there are two best friends, but one of them is secretly "evil" and wants to end the world as he knows, for a certain purpose. In the middle of those two best friends there is an extremely important girl for both, yet one of them ends up killing her. Then the "evil" guy reveals his plans and they become enemies, but deep down, the "evil" guy is not entirely evil and it is capable of feeling and loving, he cries a lot or he is usually emotionless with empty eyes. Usually the nice flashbacks of the "evil" guy with his best friend are set on a garden. In both the girl has long black hair and liked to sing for them.
Both are great reads with beautiful art and deep plot: they start as comedy but then switch to drama/tragedy.  read more
