Hey, guys welcome back to Kaizetsu.com. Today we are going to provide you the list of Anime which are very similar to anime named Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler).

Short introduction to Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)

Young Ciel Phantomhive is known as “the Queen’s Guard Dog,” taking care of the many unsettling events that occur in Victorian England for Her Majesty. Aided by Sebastian Michaelis, his loyal butler with seemingly inhuman abilities, Ciel uses whatever means necessary to get the job done. But is there more to this black-clad butler than meets the eye?

In Ciel’s past lies a secret tragedy that enveloped him in perennial darkness—during one of his bleakest moments, he formed a contract with Sebastian, a demon, bargaining his soul in exchange for vengeance upon those who wronged him. Today, not only is Sebastian one hell of a butler, but he is also the perfect servant to carry out his master’s orders—all the while anticipating the delicious meal he will eventually make of Ciel’s soul. As the two work to unravel the mystery behind Ciel’s chain of misfortunes, a bond forms between them that neither heaven nor hell can tear apart.

10. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

Description: In the year 2010, the Holy Empire of Britannia is establishing itself as a dominant military nation, starting with the conquest of Japan. Renamed to Area 11 after its swift defeat, Japan has seen significant resistance against these tyrants in an attempt to regain independence.

Lelouch Lamperouge, a Britannian student, unfortunately finds himself caught in a crossfire between the Britannian and the Area 11 rebel armed forces. He is able to escape, however, thanks to the timely appearance of a mysterious girl named C.C., who bestows upon him Geass, the “Power of Kings.” Realizing the vast potential of his newfound “power of absolute obedience,” Lelouch embarks upon a perilous journey as the masked vigilante known as Zero, leading a merciless onslaught against Britannia in order to get revenge once and for all.

Number of Episodes: 25

Release Year: 2006

Both series, Kuroshitsuji and Code Geass feature an intelligent main character that comes up with various strategies and schemes. These characters (Ciel and Lelouch) also lack psychical strength, which they make up by using other people as their “chess pieces”. Without their ability to use others both characters would be quite powerless.

9. Yuukoku no Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot)

Description: In the late 19th century, the British Empire nobility reigns while its working class suffers at their hands. Sympathetic to their plight, William James Moriarty wants to topple it all. Frustrated by the systemic inequity, Moriarty strategizes to fix the entire nation. Not even consulting detective Sherlock Holmes can stand in his way. It’s time for crime to revolutionize the world!

Number of Episodes: 11

Release Year: 2020

Victiorian London settings with morally gray main characters who are nobles and investigate crimes. The villians are often fellow nobles and solving the crimes often leads to the death. While Moriarty is grounded a bit more in historical fiction, Black Butler aligns to the supernatural with demons and such. 

8. Vampire Knight

Description: The cheerful Yuuki Cross and the gruff Zero Kiryuu are members of the disciplinary committee at Cross Academy, which houses two very distinct classes: the Day Class and the Night Class. Their job consists of upholding order between the classes when they switch out. While that may not seem like an especially difficult task, the Day Class is unaware of the truth behind the Night Class—their utterly gorgeous students are vampires.

Ten years ago, Yuuki was saved from a vampire attack by Kaname Kuran, a Pureblood vampire. Now, Kaname is the leader of the Night Class, and Yuuki’s disciplinary committee position allows her to see him again, making her feelings for him grow complicated. Meanwhile, Zero bears a white-hot hatred of all vampires and believes they can never live in harmony with humans. But a secret from Zero’s past soon threatens the fragile peace of all at the academy, and things may never be the same again.

Number of Episodes: 13

Release Year: 2008

Both animes have great stories and will make you cry. Very touching anime, and you certainly won’t regret watching them rather you are male or female. Also there is the similarity between Sebastien and Kaname which is striking. Both are loal kind and sexy, although one is a demon and another a vampire.

7. Devils and Realist

Description: The story revolves around William, an aristocratic family’s progeny with rare intellect. One day, his uncle lost his possessions after his business failed. Fearing that his family’s name has been tarnished, William returns home and searches with his family’s butler for anything that can be converted into cash. A search of the premises yields an underground room left by an ancestor. In the room is a magical seal, and William unintentionally summons a devil. The summoned devil tells William his name Dantalion, and reveals that William is the designator who can choose the acting ruler of the demon world.

Number of Episodes: 12

Release Year: 2013

In both Kuroshitsuji and Makai Ouji, both MCs are headstrong young men from wealthy families, have experienced tragedies, and are surrounded by a multitude of good-looking bishie demons. With a touch of comedy and plenty of drama, the similarities between these two shows are hard to miss.

6. Inu x Boku Secret Service

Description: Ayakashi Kan is a haunted condominium where every resident is required to have a bodyguard. When socially inept Ririchiyo moves in, she’s looking for peace and quiet. However, she quickly discovers that her bodyguard isn’t just foxy; he might actually BE a fox. In fact, all of Ayakashi Kan’s residents, and their agents, have both human and non-human ancestors. Welcome to the weirdest, wackiest mansion in town where no one is entirely human and mayhem is the order of the day in Inu X Boku SS!

Number of Episodes: 12

Release Year: 2012

Butlers, maids, demons, and monsters. These two shows are similar in just about every way possible. The only significant differences I can think of are that Inu x Boku SS‘s young, rich kid is female, whilst Kuroshitsuji‘s is male, and that Kuroshitsuji is a much darker show than Inu x Boku SS.

5. D.Gray-man

Description: An akuma is a soul which has been brought back to life through sadness and despair with the powers of Millenium Earl. Their mission is to terrorize the earth and all who dwell within it. The Black Order is a group of Exorcists that have sworn to cleanse the souls of the akuma, and collect the substance known as “innocence”. This powerful substance can be used as an anti-akuma weapon, and ultimately can help destroy the evil Millenium Earl. 

Number of Episodes: 103

Release Year: 2006

Both of these series are set during the Victorian period and contain demons, which if you like that sort of time setting then both of these series are worth a viewing. These series do differ in their portrayal of demons, D.Gray-man is more of the demons are quite hollow and undeveloped, evil and must be fought, whereas Kuroshitsuji places a demon as one of the central characters and there is more depth to the character. Both of these series also manage to successfully combine and maintain a nice balance of comedy and action, whilst coping with some fairly dark plotlines.

4. Death Note

Description: A shinigami, as a god of death, can kill any person—provided they see their victim’s face and write their victim’s name in a notebook called a Death Note. One day, Ryuk, bored by the shinigami lifestyle and interested in seeing how a human would use a Death Note, drops one into the human realm.

High school student and prodigy Light Yagami stumbles upon the Death Note and—since he deplores the state of the world—tests the deadly notebook by writing a criminal’s name in it. When the criminal dies immediately following his experiment with the Death Note, Light is greatly surprised and quickly recognizes how devastating the power that has fallen into his hands could be.

Number of Episodes: 37

Release Year: 2006

Both follow protagonists that have a ruthless disposition and a willingness to sacrifice anything to achieve their goals. They use the otherworldly beings that appeared before them as tools to change their world to match their desires. The story arcs are fairly similar to each other. Finally, the main characters have an otherworldly helper, a demon in Kuroshitsuji and a shinigami in Death Note.

3. Hellsing

Description: In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it’s up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment.

Number of Episodes: 13

Release Year: 2001

Both are superhuman beings (Sebastian and Alucard) under contract to english nobility (Ciel and Integra). Even though the main aim of the two animes are different, (revenge vs elimination of vampires), they are almost cut from the same cloth! However, Hellsing tends to be darker and more bloody. 

2. Gosick

Description: In the early 20th century, Kazuya transfers to a prestigious academy as part of an exchange program between Japan and Saubure, a small European country. But while Kazuya would love to make friends and have a typical school life, the boy is shunned by his ghost story-loving peers who believe that he’s a “Black Reaper” to be feared.

Number of Episodes: 24

Release Year: 2010

Both anime are very similar in their story telling. They have a larger plot, or story arc, that is fed by smaller sub-plots, and arcs. These take the form of various mysteries the protagonists solve. They also have the same setting, you could watch one and get the same feel from the other, if you wanted to continue watching an european styled anime.

1. Pandora Hearts

Description: To young Oz Vessalius, heir to the Vessalius Duke House, the perilous world called the Abyss is nothing more than a folktale used to scare misbehaving children. However, when Oz’s coming-of-age ceremony is interrupted by the malicious Baskerville Clan intent on banishing him into the depths of the Abyss, the Vessalius heir realizes that his peaceful life of luxury is at its end. Now, he must confront the world of the Abyss and its dwellers, the monstrous “Chains,” which are both not quite as fake as he once believed.

Number of Episodes: 25

Release Year: 2009

Both animes have similar dymanics in the relations between main characters: an older, stronger servant who protects a weaker, younger master. Also, the topic of hell/Abyss that threatens one of the characters is kind of similar. Both animes are very nice in the visual aspect, dramatic but with some humor to lighten the mood.
