This one’s an obvious entry on this list, since both Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia and Soul Eater have one thing in common, the Mages-Servants and the Meisters-Weapons dynamic. The story of Soul Eater revolves around the famous Death Weapon Meister Academy in Death City, which consists of Shinigami working on creating “Death Scythes.” These Death Scythes are human hybrids who can transform their body into Demon Weapons, which can only be achieved after they have consumed the souls of 99 evil beings and one witch’s soul.
The story focuses on the life of Soul Eater Evans, who, along with his Meister Maka Albarn, aims to become a Death Scythe and protect the city from dangers.

Kuroshitsuji, or Black Butler, is a story that has revenge as its central theme. “The Queen’s Guard Dog” Ciel Phantomhive, along with his butler Sebastian Michaelis, take care of enemies and events that happen in Victorian-era England. But Sebastian is not human; he has incredible abilities and is a demon. Ciel has formed a pact with Sebastian and bargained his soul so he can have the demon help avenge his parent’s death. After the deed would be done, Ciel’s soul is going to be consumed by Sebastian. A bond still forms between the two as they work towards their goal. Just like Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia, Black Butler, deals with summoning demons and features ancient conspiracies.

Aired: Jan 7, 2011, to Apr 22, 2011
Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Mahou Shoujo Madoka ★Magica, is another show dealing with summoning and dealing with powers just like Fate/Grand Order. Madoka Magica tells the story of two regular girls Madoka Kaname and Sayaka Miki, whose lives change when they come across Kyuubey, a cute cat-like magical creature who offers to grant any one of their wishes. In exchange, they will become magical girls. A transfer student Homura Akemi, who is a magical girl herself, advises them not to accept Kyuubei’s proposition.
Sayaka becomes a magical girl, however, but Madoka realizes there’s more than meets the eye behind the scenes. The show deals with the whole summoning-to-save-the-world theme, and if you like Fate/Grand Order: Absolute Demonic Front – Babylonia, Madoka Magica will be your cup of tea.
