10. Sousei no Onmyouji

Synopsis – Magano, a parallel realm filled with monsters known as “Kegare,” is a place where exorcists deal with all impurities. Benio Adashino is a prodigy exorcist who is recognized for her strength and is summoned to Tokyo by the Exorcist Union. On her way, she plummets into the arms of Rokuro Enmadou, a young exorcist with a troubled past.

But the impurities of Magano do not rest. When these two exorcists witness a couple of children stolen by a Kegare, Benio rushes to save them, dragging Rokuro along with her into Magano. Engaged in a fight she is on the verge of being defeated in, Benio is saved by Rokuro, revealing himself capable of being her rival in talent.

Sousei no Onmyouji tells the story of two talented exorcists who are destined to become the “Twin Star Exorcists” and the prophesized parents of the Miko—the reincarnation of Abe no Seimei—who will cleanse the world of all impurities.

Similarity –Both stories follow young teenage Onmyouji’s who come from societies where onmyou families are important. While the main two characters are essential to the survival of the world, they form a romantic relationship of a kind. Personally, I enjoyed Tokyo Ravens more than Sousei no Onmyouji, but if you enjoyed one you should be able to find some merit in the other.

9. Zetsuen no Tempest

Synopsis – Yoshino Takigawa, an ordinary teenager, is secretly dating his best friend Mahiro’s younger sister. But when his girlfriend Aika mysteriously dies, Mahiro disappears, vowing to find the one responsible and make them pay for murdering his beloved sister. Yoshino continues his life as usual and has not heard from Mahiro in a month—until he is confronted by a strange girl who holds him at gunpoint, and his best friend arrives in the nick of time to save him.

Yoshino learns that Mahiro has enlisted the help of a witch named Hakaze Kusaribe to find Aika’s killer and of the existence of an entity known as the “Tree of Exodus.” The witch’s brother selfishly desires to make use of its power, in spite of the impending peril to the world. However, Hakaze is banished to a deserted island, and it is now up to Yoshino and Mahiro to help her save the world while inching ever closer to the truth behind Aika’s death.

Similarity – Two spiritual magic shows with very good writing, compelling story, and strong female leads. Both shows feature a male/female MC duo where the female is much stronger, but the male has significant influence over the story. both shows feature a strong array of supporting characters, very pretty animation, and clever, convincing dialogue making for entertaining, compelling shows with fun twists and fancy action battles. Despite their generic genres, both shows turn out to be very high quality in ways that these types of shows normally aren’t.

8. Campione!: Matsurowanu Kamigami to Kamigoroshi no Maou

Campione Matsurowanu Kamigami to Kamigoroshi no Maou

Synopsis- Some people suddenly find religion, but for 16-year-old Kusanagi Godou, it’s that REALLY old time religion that’s found him! As the result of defeating the God of War in mortal combat, Godou’s stuck with the unwanted position of Campione!, or God Slayer, whose duty is to fight Heretical Gods whenever they try to muscle in on the local turf. Not only is this likely to make Godou roadkill on the Highway to Heaven, it’s also a job that comes with a lot of other problems. Like how to deal with the fact that his “enhanced status” is attracting a bevy of overly-worshipped female followers. After all, they’re just there to aid him in his demi-godly duties, right? So why is it that their leader, the demonically manipulative sword-mistress Erica Blandelli, seems to have such a devilish interest in encouraging some VERY unorthodox activities? Get ready for immortal affairs, heavenly harems and lots of dueling deities taking pious in the face as the ultimate smash, bash, and thrash of the Titans rocks both Heaven and Earth.

Similarity – The most obvious similarity between these two is that the MC finds himself a badass over night.
There are other similarities besides the main one, both have some sort of harem ( In Campione its a legitimate one, but in Tokyo Ravens it’s a pseudo one . ) and both have one main heroine.

7. Noragami

Anime With Less Than 30 Episodes

Synopsis – In times of need, if you look in the right place, you just may see a strange telephone number scrawled in red. If you call this number, you will hear a young man introduce himself as the Yato God.

Yato is a minor deity and a self-proclaimed “Delivery God,” who dreams of having millions of worshippers. Without a single shrine dedicated to his name, however, his goals are far from being realized. He spends his days doing odd jobs for five yen apiece until his weapon partner becomes fed up with her useless master and deserts him.

Just as things seem to be looking grim for the god, his fortune changes when a middle school girl, Hiyori Iki, supposedly saves Yato from a car accident, taking the hit for him. Remarkably, she survives, but the event has caused her soul to become loose and hence able to leave her body. Hiyori demands that Yato return her to normal, but upon learning that he needs a new partner to do so, reluctantly agrees to help him find one. And with Hiyori’s help, Yato’s luck may finally be turning around.

Similarity – Tokyo Ravens and Noragami come with the package of dealing with spiritual beings with magic/abilities. The main male protagonist often comes in contact with these beings in their perspective worlds.

Both series’ main male protagonist has a past that is explored throughout their stories. Through them, certain plot elements are unraveled that ties together with its themes.

Both series also takes place in a school life setting.. Tokyo Ravens has more romance while Noragami presents an excellent comedy with its humorous dialogues and character interactions.

6. Guilty Crown

Guilty Crown

Synopsis – Japan, 2039. Ten years after the outbreak of the “Apocalypse Virus,” an event solemnly regarded as “Lost Christmas,” the once proud nation has fallen under the rule of the GHQ, an independent military force dedicated to restoring order. Funeral Parlor, a guerilla group led by the infamous Gai Tsutsugami, act as freedom fighters, offering the only resistance to GHQ’s cruel despotism.

Inori Yuzuriha, a key member of Funeral Parlor, runs into the weak and unsociable Shuu Ouma during a crucial operation, which results in him obtaining the “Power of Kings”—an ability which allows the wielder to draw out the manifestations of an individual’s personality, or “voids.” Now an unwilling participant in the struggle against GHQ, Shuu must learn to control his newfound power if he is to help take back Japan once and for all.

Guilty Crown follows the action-packed story of a young high school student who is dragged into a war, possessing an ability that will help him uncover the secrets of the GHQ, Funeral Parlor, and Lost Christmas. However, he will soon learn that the truth comes at a far greater price than he could have ever imagined.

Similarity – -Both animes have a weak main character at the beginning and a female MC, who is the reason why the male protagonist is seeking for power.
– Both animes have mecha aspects but in Guilty crown it’s more mecha and in Tokyo Ravens its mixed with magic.
-The ending is kinda similar ( well in the anime at least)
-The art of both animes are really good and the special effects are well done

5. Toaru Majutsu no Index

Toaru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index)

Synopsis –Academy City, Japan, is at the forefront of science. Besides being 30 years ahead of the world technologically, more than three-fourths of this peculiar city’s population consists of students developing their psychic abilities as espers in various institutions. Among these students is Touma Kamijou, a high school boy with the lowest psychic rank of zero, but with a mysterious power, no scientist can understand: “Imagine Breaker,” which allows him to negate other supernatural abilities.

This, however, doesn’t affect Kamijou’s life in the least as he plays his role as a regular teenager; that is until he meets the strange Index Librorum Prohibitorum, a young girl who has memorized the entire forbidden grimoires, and now a dangerous organization is hunting Index down. With several magicians looking to harm the girl, Kamijou will defend his new companion at all costs as he discovers a strange new realm of the supernatural.

4. Ao no Exorcist

Ao no Exorcist

Synopsis – Humans and demons are two sides of the same coin, as are Assiah and Gehenna, their respective worlds. The only way to travel between the realms is by the means of possession, like in ghost stories. However, Satan, the ruler of Gehenna, cannot find a suitable host to possess and therefore, remains imprisoned in his world. In a desperate attempt to conquer Assiah, he sends his son instead, intending for him to eventually grow into a vessel capable of possession by the demon king.

Ao, no Exorcist follows Rin Okumura who appears to be an ordinary, somewhat troublesome teenager—that is until one day he is ambushed by demons. His world turns upside down when he discovers that he is, in fact, the very son of Satan and that his demon father wishes for him to return so they can conquer Assiah together. Not wanting to join the king of Gehenna, Rin decides to begin training to become an exorcist so that he can fight to defend Assiah alongside his brother Yukio.

Similarity – • The students are training to become an exorcist.
• MC has great power.
• They both have hilarious moments that you can’t miss.
• They both deal with the supernatural. Both have an mc that turn out to be a big shot and they didn’t know it. The plot in these two seem rather interesting, but they are slow to build up.

3. Strike the Blood

Synopsis – Kojou Akatsuki’s days as an ordinary high school student in the Demon District of Itogami Island come to an abrupt end after a fateful encounter leaves him with the remarkable abilities of a vampire.

It isn’t long before he is thrust into the center of attention when it is discovered that he is the fourth primogenitor, an immensely powerful vampire whom most consider being merely a legend. Fearing Kojou’s destructive potential, the Lion King Organization sends in an apprentice sword-shaman, Yukina Himeragi, to monitor, and should he become a threat, kill the boy deemed the world’s most powerful vampire. Forced together by circumstance, the two form an unlikely alliance as Kojou comes to terms with his abilities and they both struggle to protect the city from various emerging chaotic forces.

Similarity – The main characters from both series are very similar. Harutora from Tokyo Ravens and Kojou are both dense, unlucky but awesome/epic at the same time. They were living a normal life until their lives changed. In Tokyo Raven: Harutora became an Onmyoji while in Strike The Blood: Kojou is a vampire. Both series takes place in a modern city filled with interesting characters. Add some supernatural elements and mystery too. Both series airing at the same time.

2. Trinity Seven

Trinity Seven

Synopsis – One day, the bright red sun stopped shining, causing the “Breakdown Phenomenon”—the destruction of Arata Kasuga’s town and the disappearance of the people inhabiting it. All, however, is not yet lost; by utilizing the magical grimoire given to him by his childhood friend and cousin Hijiri Kasuga, Arata’s world gets artificially reconstructed.

In order to investigate the phenomenon, Lilith Asami appears before Arata, whose artificial world suddenly disintegrates. He is given two choices: hand over the book, or die. However, Arata chooses the third option—enrolling in the top-secret magic school Royal Biblia Academy, where six other magical users await him. Together with Lilith, these six form the Trinity Seven, the elite of the school who each bolster their own power and skill.

With the ambition to save Hijiri and the help of his newfound friends, Arata stops at nothing to prevent the destruction of his beloved hometown and to bring his best friend back.

Similarity – Living a normal and peaceful life, the main protagonist encounters a life-changing event that takes away his dearest friend. Determined to track down and find her, he transfers into a magic academy. With a familiar always by his side, Kon of Tokyo Ravens for Harutora and Ilias of Trinity Seven for Arata, the main character undertakes many missions where he eventually pieces clues to the whereabouts of his lost beloved. Little did he know, however, that he possesses innate power that can change the world and that many seek that potential for their own selfish desires.

1. Kekkaishi

Synopsis – Yoshimura Sumimura comes from a long line of “Kekkaishi,” individuals who have supernatural abilities and are able to destroy evil creatures called Ayakashi that venture into the human realm from time to time. The Ayakashi are demons that look to feast on the power emanating from the land of Karasumori, which also happens to be where Yoshimura’s high school is located. Now, Yoshimura must fight to protect his beloved school and hometown. Although, if it were up to him, he would rather be baking cakes than fighting off the ugly characters that show up at night.

Thankfully, Yoshimura isn’t the only one helping to keep the baddies at bay. His childhood friend and neighbor, Tokine Yukimura, joins him in this righteous battle. Despite the fact that they are from rival clans, these two make a fantastic team. And teamwork is something vital to fighting the evil that is closing in, as the Ayakashi attack in waves, looking to claim the land as their own, and a shadowy organization looks on, ready to pounce when the time is right…

Similarity – Both series involve kids delving in onmyou arts(eastern magic). Whilst Kekkaishi are more about onmyou-type barriers known as kekkai, Tokyo Ravens focus on shikigamis which are pretty much helpers to onmyoujis(casters).

If you’re into shonen-type anime(adventure, action) mixed with supernatural elements, make sure to check out both!
