These shounen titles share the following similarities: a prevalent conflict between two organisations; characters who fight using unique abilities; a sense of comradery amongst groups within one organisation; and a rather bleak and gothic setting.
They are atypical battle shounen that contains a dark and gothic atmosphere. Most of this atmosphere is carried by the artwork, filled with dark scenes and avantgardist drawings. In the story field, they are about an organization that fights demons/witches and the fights are carried in a similar way with similar weapons (although in Soul Eater the weapons are humans transformed).
