You will find yourself mesmerised by the amazing storytelling, dramatic character development, and the enveloping mystery of the plot in these two publications.

Same mangaka. Both series have the typical epic/seinen Urasawa stile and great characters.

If you love sci-fi, especially cyberpunk, these are for you. Both of them have interesting plot, and fascinating action involving cyborgs and highly developed robots. And both main characters have lost their memories. Differences are: 1) Pluto is detective manga, while Gunnm is not. 2) Gunnm's plot setting is in a quite distant future, in the dystopian 26th century. Pluto's plot is in the futuristic 21st century. So, if you like Action, Sci-Fi, Seinen, you should read these.

I recommend Pluto as it has has a lot of the dark, mystery, and psychological themes that Berserk has. To be complete honestly, Berserk is so special that no show will be anywhere near similar to it. Its a masterpiece. Pluto is as well, can't wait for the anime adaptation.

Can humans coexist with robots? If they did then what would the society look like? Since robots are made to serve humans they are inferior to us-----merely our servants. But if the robots develop high A.I.!!! If robots develop feelings, then is it morally right to treat them as interiors?? Both these manga explore such themes. Boichi's story is more of a classic "Avenge my father"story. And Urasawa is same as always!! Creates a world ending mystery. A thriller. Both stories are worth reading.

Original story, but completely different otherwise. Might not enjoy it but its nice to see the source material for Pluto.

The two share a similar tone, theme, and central conflict. Both deal with the morality and ethics of scientifically making people, whether those people are truly human, and if they should be treated as human or as sub-human.

Both deal with the political, ethical and philosophical aspects of the development of robotics and artificial intelligence.

they are almost same IN EVERY ASPECT , only difference is ETERNAL SABBATH deals with artificial life forms , while PLUTO deals with artificial intelligence and robotics  
reportRecommended by badlander_vtg
Both titles feature created beings and the interaction/struggle to fit into the existing society. Pluto features humans as the dominant form, while Flat Earth Exchange features androids as the semi caretakers of the world after a cataclysmic event.

Both manga create an atmosphere of tension, as they both deal with a series of murders / bizarre deaths. The settings are a bit different, since Pluto has robots, while Doumu has psychics. Also both manga also have a powerful child protagonist (Atom & Etsuko). Overall, both are award-winning manga, that have a fast pace and engaging plot, which makes them similar to some degree.
