Both recent phenomenon series with very similar premises and appeal. Both involve elite human warriors trained to face supernatural beings average humans are powerless against (demons & curses).

I feel like these are both similar in terms of evil beings needing to be purged for the sake of humanity, and the characters in both of these shows have unique styles they use to do so. There's also the case of certain humans whom are stronger in both of these and can more easily purge of said beings compared to their "juniors".

- Rather than strictly fantasy violence (hitting people with magic but no one really gets hurt) that some shounen series have, there are actual bloody fights and deaths, which makes the fights feel like they have more weight - Similar supernatural enemies with cursed spirits in Jujutsu Kaisen and demons in Kimetsu no Yaiba/Demon Slayer - Primary antagonists that you love to hate (though Demon Slayer has a lot more compassion towards most other demons) - Well-animated, especially fight scenes - Abilities that feel individualized while maintaining consistency across characters - Strong female characters that get their fair share of the action - Distinct and recognizable character designs, even though most   read more

Amazing Animation Action

-They both deal with the supernatural -They are both action packed and more violent and disturbing than your typical Shonen Jump anime -They both have fun sets of characters -The characters constantly have to fight against dangerous and evil supernatural creatures

Both promises and the future of shonen anime, pillars of the actual shonen jump, with amazing adaptations and stunning animation. If you liked one, you should try with the other instantly. None of both are completely original nor experimental stories: both follow the trace of other famous shonen mangas. You will see the protagonist trio; good vs bad; training; power ups. But also with their own features that make them unique and worth the time. If you saw JJK, Kimetsu can catch you not only with animation but also with its characters, setting, enemies and battles. If you saw KNY, Jujutsu Kaisen can offer stunning choreographies, photography, and a   read more

Both have an average level shonen plot with amazing animation. Cool action and fight scenes. MCs have something they cling on to motivate them.
report Recommended by charlodarlo
Both take place in a harsh fantasy world where they have to fight against demons/monsters that kill innocent people. The MCs of both anime are learning about this newly discovered world (demons/monsters are actually real etc.) and start their training to be able to get rid of them. Eventually they both find out they also have special powers and/or bigger meaning.

Jujutsu Kaisen is basically Kimetsu no Yaiba, but better. They both focus on a young man who reluctantly joins a group that fights supernatural beings (demons for KnY, curses for JJK), but: - Jujutsu Kaisen has a stronger main cast (writing and personality wise) - Jujutsu Kaisen has a more unique and fleshed out power system with more creative uses - Kimetsu no Yaiba REALLY drags in the first few arcs before it starts getting good. Jujutsu Kaisen is good from the beginning. - Jujutsu Kaisen doesn't have Zenitsu in it (instantly better)
report Recommended by PhantomTom
- I'd say they are mirror images of each other with the only difference being the timeline in which they are set. KnY is set in an older time-period while Jujutsu Kaisen is set in the modern era - Really impressive and well-crafted fight sequences. The time, dedication and money spent on them is definitely clear to see - Must-watch shows for those who're big into their shounen shows :)
report Recommended by Joeywatches
- They both are fighting demons - They both include the genre of shonen - Badass chracters that are selfless and really strong from the start
report Recommended by Shahmaan
If you wanna see some demons rampaging and studios that actually love their works, I'll suggest if you've seen one, you gotta check the other one because of quite the similar aspects of the story which is masterfully adapted through beautiful animation.
report Recommended by Pre_Yum
Both the anime have the same theme, killing demon/curses. A protagonist who can fight, a badass who looks out for him and a major objective. This just reminded me of Demon slayer so much.
report Recommended by Zuj3brusu
Both are newer shonen with a protagonist focusing on the exorcism of demons/curses. Both were praised for their high quality animation and exciting action sequences. Both anime have a dark atmosphere and utilize their color palette effectively. They have good soundtracks, great art, likable characters, and very cool villains. I can't help but feel like these two anime are the illegitimate children of the Jojo franchise.

If you like insane fight visuals and a happy-go-lucky op main with a bunch of well placed humor, you'll find that here.

Both anime's are fighting demons and monster in order to keep peace in japan.

Craving some more action packed spectacular animation? Well, Jujutsu Kaisen (JJK) and Kimetsu no Yaiba (KnY) are the perfect fit for you. If you are engrossed with the amazing scenes in each anime, you definitely won't regret trying the other. Moreover, if you liked the premise of fighting supernatural beings (demons for KnY and curses for JJK) to protect or do something important to them, the plot is for you. Hope you enjoy the series, whichever you are watching!

Both do not have the most unique of stories, but the execution is near perfection.
report Recommended by Zibzo
Jujutsu Kaisen is similar to Kimetsu no Yaiba because both stories have some similar aspects like slaying an entity that causes harm to people. Some entities are good in both stories, creating conflict with whether or not they should be allowed to live.

The premise of each show is fighting demons, well in Jujutsu Kaisen's case- curses, and the main characters are both strong from the start. Both share amazing fight scenes.

Chasing down demon-like things? The main character is just now learning about the real deadly world? Both have these. Many scenes reminded me of each other. They are both very good :)

Both have very interesting first episodes. There are cool loveable side characters but what makes them different is that there is a major villian in KnY whilst JK probably will have minor ones as far as I know.

Even tho they are made by completely different studios, both shows have great animation and art and the story is pretty similar. They both give very similar vibe and I think you wil 100% like Jujustu kaisen if you enjoyed demon slayer.

Jujutsu Kaisen is pretty much a underrated Demon Slayer/Kimetsu no Yaiba. If you like animes about demons or like fights, give Jujutsu Kaisen a shot.
report Recommended by K135
both involve fighting creatures like demons and curses. they also don't have character development because they just rush recklessly into a fight for the rights of others. their mc would do anything to protect others and their loved ones. overall i love both animes. definitely recommended :]

Both have a cheerful and OP MC The side characters have well-developed personalities and have their own unique powers Action and comedy are balanced and the plot is unique making the anime worth watching
report Recommended by DarkStrawberry21
Both are action packed, with comedic gags to break up the well animated and choreographed fight scenes. They also both share many genres- shounen, demons, (though they are called curses in Jujutsu Kaisen,) action, etcetera… I can assure that anyone who likes Demon Slayer will like Jujutsu Kaisen, and anyone who like Jujutsu Kaisen will like Demon Slayer.

New generation of shounen animes arise with the foundation of great story with the superb animation provided by the respective studios. Their plot was similarly aligned on saving the humanity that was continously invaded by the villainous yet powerful supernatural creatures.

First of all, the fight scenes and animation in Jujutsu Kaisen are on a whole another level than your average shounen anime. The story is incredible, the characters are badass, the female cast is one of the best and the effects and visuals really hits the spot. Both are still On-going. I highly recommend watching these. If you haven't watched these two yet then haven't watched any anime yet.

Jujutsu Sorcerers exorcise Cursed Spirits whereas Demon Slayer slays Demons. Both has similar objectives. Both have very nice animation and design. Demon Slayer is more dramatic and the story is slightly better than Jujutsu Kaisen.

Kimetsu no Yaiba and Jujutsu Kaisen both have breathtaking animation and great action. They both have a good power system and good funny moments. But if I were to choose which is better between the 2 I would say Jujutsu Kaisen is better because Kimetsu no Yaiba feels basic at times.

both have similar stories and fighting style.

Both have a similar structure (being a shounen anime), and have similar goals; "we must destroy/ exorcise these evil beings using tools that are meticulously made specifically for this job in order to protect human-kind". I like both of these anime and they do give off similar vibes but they're still very distinct and enjoyable.

Both animes have good animation and style, the fighting are super well made in both animes. Both animes have a dark start.

Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon Slayer are two highly popular Shonen Jump series often compared due to similar tones and premises. 1. Both have realistic approaches to MCs power levels; both MCs start off as weak but progressively get stronger (obviously duh). In the early stages of both series, it is evident that the MCs are relatively weak compared to other characters, and it remains like this towards the middle-end of the anime -- adding a sense of realism. 2. Side characters aren't useless (omg wow). The characters that follow the MCs have a similar power level to that of the MCs, but they are written   read more

both tell the lives of teenagers who out of nowhere had a mission to hunt demons, as well as kimetsu no yaba, in jujutso kaisen they also have demon hunter classes in which the protagonist advances, the two have a beautiful story that keeps you willing to follow until the end of the season, as well as having the sound and visual effects that are amazing!

Both have great fight animation, vibrant art styles and heartwarming moments. Both MC had no clue about the supernatural forces in their world until their life turned upside down. Both MC lost their beloved family members. Both made a lot of reliable friends and comrades in their journey. Both were forced to define their goals before receiving any training and have been working hard to achieve them throughout the show. Both have powerful and dependable female leads and manage to avoid damsel in distress trope.

Both are about a young boy learning about his powers and going to school and killing bad things. and both have really great friendship aspects

I think fans of Demon Slayer anime would like to watch Jujutsu Kaisen too, because in Jujutsu Kaisen the story is about a guy who is killing curses like Tanjiro killing demons. The only thing that is diffrent is that in Jujutsu Kaisen they're not killing curses with katanas, swords, blades... They're killing them with special techniques. They are even in team of 3 and a Sensei is like Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke and Hashira.

Both heavily emphasize on action and animation.

If you like basic shonen anime, then you will definetly enjoy these two animes. Jujutsu Kaisen and Demon slayer are good shows, they have an interesting plot, stellar animation and decently written characters, neither shows are masterpieces but they do their job well at being a fun watch.
