Both have main girls that have a special 'spiritual-seeing' ability, and guys that are working as shinigami to pay off their debts. Also, both mangas have a recurring theme of money and how the main characters suffer from some sort of poverty.

Peach-Pit’s greatest series. Both are extremely good and addictive manga with amazing art and great characters. <br/> The supernatural is a focal point in both: the protagonist (Jun/Michiru) is an introverted person with a rather painful past who comes into contact (unwillingly at first) with beings who shouldn’t be alive: zombies in ZL, living dolls in RM. <br/> Also, Nori (Jun’s sister) & Michiru are very similar. <br/> Both are neither shoujo nor shounen, but take a bit of both categories, and add some tragedy and psychology.

In both there is a power called Shinigami Eyes, which in DN allows you to see both the name and life span of anyone, and in ZL makes you see a ring on people’s neck: the darker it becomes, the nearer that person’s death gets. <br/> Both can be creepy at times, and both have Shinigami, death, supernatural, mystery, blood, a dark aura, and lots of bishounen. <br/> Both are really good, worth-reading manga, and both both are (wrongly) considered shounen.

Square Enix worked on both manga. In both you'll find eye-patches, Shinigami, contracts, death, a dark mood, and great art. But the most notable similarities are those between the characters: in both series we have the usually clumsy meganekko (Michiru/Meilin), the gay man who provides some comedy (Hakka/Grell), the always calm and kinda tedious Chinese guy whose eyes are constantly shut (Toho/Lau), the emotionless pretty girl (Kuze/Ranmao), the weird and non-human ferryman/grave-digger (Bekko/Undertaker), the cute and cheerful shota boy (Yuta/Finnian), and even the domesticated wolf (Raika/Pluto). That said, Zombie Loan is overall way better.

Giving new life to the dead, or creating new life from the unknown. Yes, it is supernatural phenomenons. Comedy and a slice of school life, along with the very similar art of the two series. And i mean it literally, as you can compare a character from each series and only be able to find little differences in their appearance. Other than that, the plot will always take the turn for the unexpected.

After the moment they die, a group of people is resurrected and given a mission to protect the people against supernatural beings, aliens in Gantz, zombies in Z-Loan. For killing this monsters they will win a reward, points in Gantz, money in Z-Loan, and if they reach an amount of points or money they will be able to come back to live again.

Man and girl killing vampires, two men and girl killing zombies. One of the them is actually a vampire, two of them are actually zombies. Similar atmosphere, similar feelings, similar artwork, some shoujo-ish moments.

In order to live, they must finish the mission given to them. "Countdown 7 Days" is a one-shot while "Zombie -Loan" is 13 volume manga.

Zombies and Martial arts? How in the world can these two be related? Ohhhh maannnn you have got nooo idea how similar these two mangas are ;) I didn't see any connection (nor did i have any idea that i WOULD ever see a connection) between these mangas, but after reading a few chapters of Zombie loan (i finished reading double arts first ^^") I started to notice a lot of similarities in both the characters' personality and the situations they are put in :D I don't wanna spoil anything but *cough* like how the lead girl's life is threatened *cough* and she has to  read more

Even though they're not the same, they're both similar in the fact of someone hunting down creatures that even though have a human body are flesh eating monsters in reality. 
reportRecommended by HazukiSama
Both by the same mangakas. They are drama series with lots of comedy elements and caricaturesque drawings. Both deals with deep human feelings, the world of dreams and the connection between all human souls and destiny.

In both manga the protagonist is a schoolgirl with an useful supernatural ability: Michiru is able to see the black ring on the neck of people who are going to die, and Chiyako sees the red thread which connects one person to another.

These are both really worth-reading series that can’t be simply categorized as shoujo or shounen, and (imo) can be enjoyed by both girls and guys. <br/> In both X & ZL the characters try to overcome destiny, fate, and death, and most of them has painful memories in their past. <br/> Both manga have a great and wide cast of characters, an interesting and complex storyline, and excellent character development. <br/> They have some genres in common (action, drama, supernatural), can be pretty depressing and bloody, and have a few similar characters. <br/> Also, in both there are 2 factions, composed of people who have  read more

Kinda of similar. Both are supernatural, the female leads can see spiritual things, and the male leads have a unique life force per say. If you like one you will most probably like the other. Kieli only has two volumes, but they are adapted from 9 novels.

Horror/thriller/supernatural manga with a peculiar art style, a charming cast of characters, and tons of similarities. Both involve a secret agency (Z-Loan/Asagi Paranormal Investigation Agency) whose aim is to exterminate creepy creatures (zombies/freaks), obviously not for free. The agency's office is full of unique people, such as a despotic non-human boss (Bekko/Nanami Asagi), a pretty girl with a split personality (Koyomi Yoimachi & Yomi/Mahime Yoshino & Yahiro), a computer freak (Yuuta/Ayu), and a megane student who's basically the only normal person in the office (Michiru Kita/Naoki Amano). Both manga also have action, blood, mystery, drama, comedy, a rival office of the main agency, and gay characters.

Both manga are about a rather normal schoolgirl (Michiru/Sumire) who has a supernatural ability (Michiru has the Shinigami Eyes/Sumire can see Viruses, get in Berserk mode, and is an anti-virus) and is pretty much forced to join a secret association (Z-Loan/Venus Vanguard) whose aim is to destroy evil creatures (zombies/viruses). Both are great reads with plenty of mystery, drama, and action.

Zombie-centered series with plenty of action and unique art styles. 
reportRecommended by RenaPsychoKiller
Two uniquely skilled guys and their ever-increasing group of allies work through supernaturally-tinged cases that their unique skill sets permit them to tackle and try to grind down some of their debt. In Zombie-Loan they hunt down zombies that shouldn't be alive; in GetBackers they get back what shouldn't be gone.
