Both are made by the same mangaka and have interesting fights, and story lines.

Two young teens can see ghosts and work for a spiritual organization. 
reportRecommended by DaveJS
Both are shounen mangas that are pretty childish in the beginning and become more serious at some point. Both have a stupid main character who grows up during the story. They also have a lot of cool fights and a scary amount of supporting character who usually have a background story, so the reader is very likely to find his favorite character. Both of the series have a simple plot and simple art, and they're both the classic way-too-long shounen mangas, but they never get boring!

Both with powerful delinquent main characters, who have to protect something; with supernatural themes of demons, ghost e.t.c.

Both manga involve Japanese teenagers gaining supernatural powers. Some characters in both series are quite similar to each other (Yusuke & Josuke, Kuwabara & Okuyasu, etc.). They can also get quite dark and grim by Shonen Jump standards, although "Diamond" has a lot more bizarre/wacky moments. Both were also written in the '90s.

Both of these series deal with the supernatural and the adventures of a young boy becoming stronger and having strong supernatural and human allies with them in their journeys.

Both main characters roles in their series are kinda similar to each other and they both fight against demons.

It's a shonen fantasy/supernatural manga from Jump(Weekly Shonen Jump not Jump SQ).

Hito Hitori Futari reminds me A LOT of the very first arc of Yu Yu Hakusho but done as a seinen series, and I feel this was entirely intentional. Fans of Yu Yu Hakusho before it became a pure battle manga who are looking for something similar but much more serious will probably love this.

Characters are similar in terms of what they go through, their mannerisms and their roles in the story (for instance, both Yusuke & Goku are the main characters who itch for a good fight), and both series' action is dependent on a mix of martial arts and energy blasts.

in both mangas the main character strives to become stronger, and meets friends allong the way. as well as stronger enemies that contantly challenge their strenth

Both manga's involve gods, devils, and humans and the struggle to keep balance and peace. Both main protagonists are very gifted and have amazing potential for greatness. Both main characters are very straight forward and arrogant but will fight for whats right in any situation. The two manga's show amazing character development and artwork with great detail on the battle scenes. Both manga's share Action, Fantasy, Comedy, and Drama genre components.

FMA is about brothers Ed and Al, who try to bring their dead mother back with alchemy, but Ed loses his arm and leg, and Al loses his entire body (Ed attaches it to a suit of armor). After Ed gets prosthetic limbs (automail), he vows to become a state alchemist to gain access to the information that could restore his limbs and Al's body. Little do they know about the giant war ahead of them and the corruption in the government they'll have to face. Yu Yu Hakusho is about a teenage delinquent named Yuusuke who unexpectedly dies uncharacteristically by pushing a young  read more

Both are about two boys who like to fight and be the best

Both are battle series about slacker heroes given supernatural powers.

The main characters, Shinji and Yusuke, share a lot of similar situations and decisions. 
reportRecommended by Sunao
Shounen series about two things: the supernatural, and fight tournaments. YYH is more about spirit-based attacks and demons while SK is about ghosts, but both like to toss in references to Japanese mythology and spiritual beliefs so there's still lots of common ground. 
reportRecommended by lithiumflower
Despite YYH's aim for a younger audience, both manga feature strong characters who struggle against the battle against supernatural beings that threaten peace and order. Accompanied by a subtle romantic subplot and intense art, these two masterpieces are a must read.

If you liked the Four Saint Beasts arc (Yu Yu Hakusho) you'll probably like Evil Crusher Maya, since they are quite similar. In Evil Crusher Maya, the main hero enters a medieval castle to battle a team of four demons, three of them control an elemental ability. 
reportRecommended by BDL
Both of them have a large tournament. If you loved the Dark Tournament in Yu Yu Hakuhso, then you should like MAR, which is pretty much all one big tournament.
