He is a member of the “Ax”, a special operations group led by Cardinal Catherina Sforza. He encounters a young girl called Esther, who decides to go with him to Rome and train at the Vatican. Soon after he meets her, the order of Rozencreuz, led by Abel’s twin, Cain, tries to continue the war so they can rule the world. It’s up to Abel and the AX to try and stop them.

Other elements include royalty (monarch), priests and nuns, secret organizations, etc.

Charlotte`s father offers a rich bounty, be she dead or alive, a task D willingly accepts, even with notorious Markus brothers and their gang of bounty hunters seeking the prize as well. Amidst the chase and unknown to all lurks a sinister evil which has been secretly manipulating their every move and has set a chilling trap that none will expect and few will survive. With the tables turned and the secrets revealed, the hunters could quickly become the hunted!

Similarity – The main protagonist in both anime are vampires that are fighting against various nightmarish creatures and are fighting on the side of all that is good. Both have a similar female character that helps fights vampires. They also have a similar dark and gritty tone with lots of action, blood and gore. If you like one, you will enjoy the other.

ClaymoreSynopsis- When a shapeshifting demon with a thirst for human flesh, known as “youma,” arrives in Raki’s village, a lone woman with silver eyes walks into town with only a sword upon her back. She is a “Claymore,” a being manufactured as half-human and half-youma, for the express purpose of exterminating these monsters. After Raki’s family is killed, the Claymore saves his life, but he is subsequently banished from his home. With nowhere else to go, Raki finds the Claymore, known as Clare, and decides to follow her on her journeys.

With every town cleansed and every demon destroyed, they come closer to the youma on which Clare has sought vengeance ever since she chose to become a Claymore.

Similarity – Claymore and Hellsing Ultimate both feature a badass protagonist who hunts monsters, leading to innumerable epic fight scenes featuring a deliciously large amount of bloodshed. Both series have an organization using monster to fight monster. In Hellsing they use vampire to fight vampire and in Claymore they use Yoma to fight Yoma.

7. Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the DeadSynopsis – It happened suddenly: The dead began to rise and Japan was thrown into total chaos. As these monsters begin terrorizing a high school, Takashi Kimuro is forced to kill his best friend when he gets bitten and joins the ranks of the walking dead.

But will the combined strength of these individuals be enough to conquer this undead apocalypse?

Similarity – Both don’t have a serious story and is all about the badass characters and the gory action, both have zombies in them, both have badass weapon specialist. HOTD has ecchi and Hellsing Ultimate has those cartoon comedy moments. Both are high-quality animation Madhouse production.

6. Afro Samurai

Top 10 Anime Swordsmen
Synopsis – When he was a young boy, Afro witnessed his father be cut down in a duel at the hands of a man known only as Justice. After taking the life of Afro’s father, Justice cast aside his Number Two headband and took the Number One to claim its godly powers as his own.

Years later, having obtained the Number Two headband which grants him the right to challenge the Number One, Afro moves forward in his hunt for revenge on the man who murdered his father. There is just one thing that stands in his way—everyone else in the world! Though the Number One can only be challenged by the Number Two, the Number Two can be challenged by anyone. As his enemies gather to try and take the title of Number Two, Afro must fight through a myriad of foes and obstacles if he hopes to reach the Number One and claim vengeance once and for all.

Similarity – Afro Samurai and Hellsing Ultimate are both bloody action anime that despite their differences in genre, will surely appeal to a similar audience and can be appreciated equally for their detailed design. Both plots play with the idea of innocence lost, and the main protagonists give the impression of being a powerful, yet unknown quantity – silent monoliths of potential devastation in worlds that in both cases often seem teeming with hostile forces. Both series offer superb animation where blood and gore will liter the screen while sword swings, gun blasts, and heavy ordinance are exchanged. If you liked watching one of them you shouldn’t hesitate to try out the other

5. Devilman: Crybaby

Devilman Crybaby
Synopsis –Devils cannot take form without a living host. However, if the will of an individual is strong enough, they can overcome the demon and make its power their own, becoming a Devilman.

Weak and unassuming, Akira Fudou has always had a bleeding heart. So when his childhood friend Ryou Asuka asks for his help in uncovering devils, Akira accepts without hesitation. However, to Akira’s surprise, the place they go to is Sabbath: an immoral party of debauchery and degeneracy. Amidst bloodshed and death, demons possess the partiers, turning their bodies into grotesque monsters, and begin wreaking havoc. In a reckless attempt to save his best friend, Akira unwittingly merges with the devil Amon and becomes a Devilman, gaining the power to defeat the remaining demons.

Though it grants him great power, this new partnership awakens an insatiable and primeval part of Akira. Having the body of a devil but the same crybaby heart, Akira works alongside Ryou, destroying those that harm humanity and his loved ones.

Similarity – Clothes dyed with blood, Scarred with Body. Which do you think is more important?
With proof as warrior, you’ll choose the former. Suppose proof as human, you’ll choose the latter.
Alucard is strong vampire. Devilman is not strong as same as Alucard. But His point outdo Alucard…that is human’s volition.
HU and Crybaby are well-done Story and Character development. Crybaby is a bit rough.
Both contains so many violence and bloodstained. These are exactly destruction and slaughter.
Especially action style is unique. HU can make use of weapons and sanguivorous. Crybaby is abundance means.
Animation is great. HU keeps high quality by plural studios. Crybaby proves ability in precious scenes.

4. Black Lagoon

Anime Like 91 DaysSynopsis – Within Thailand is Roanapur, a depraved, crime-ridden city where not even the authorities or churches are untouched by the claws of corruption. A haven for convicts and degenerates alike, the city is notorious for being the center of illegal activities and operations, often fueled by local crime syndicates.

Enter Rokurou Okajima, an average Japanese businessman who has been living a dull and monotonous life, when he finally gets his chance for a change of pace with a delivery trip to Southeast Asia. His business trip swiftly goes downhill as Rokurou is captured by a mercenary group operating in Roanapur, called Black Lagoon. The group plans to use him as a bargaining chip in negotiations which ultimately failed. Now abandoned and betrayed by his former employer, Rokurou decides to join Black Lagoon. In order to survive, he must quickly adapt to his new environment and prepare himself for the bloodshed and tribulation to come.

A non-stop, high-octane thriller, Black Lagoon delves into the depths of human morality and virtue. Witness Rokurou struggling to keep his values and philosophies intact as he slowly transforms from businessman to ruthless mercenary.

Similarity – Both have amoral, almost invincible, dual gun wielding main characters who are kind of anchored by another, relatively less screwed up main character. Also, guns. Lots and lots of guns. And explosions. And guns. Watch these shows for the action, they really knock it out of the park in that department. I myself prefer Hellsing Ultimate because its supernatural elements provide for better entertainment value in terms of action.

3. Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied
Synopsis – Lucy is a special breed of human referred to as “Diclonius,” born with a short pair of horns and invisible telekinetic hands that lands her as a victim of inhumane scientific experimentation by the government. However, once circumstances present her an opportunity to escape, Lucy, corrupted by the confinement and torture, unleashes a torrent of bloodshed as she escapes her captors.

During her breakout, she receives a crippling head injury that leaves her with a split personality: someone with the mentality of a harmless child possessing limited speech capacity. In this state of instability, she stumbles upon two college students, Kouta and his cousin Yuka, who unknowingly take an injured fugitive into their care, unaware of her murderous tendencies. This act of kindness will change their lives, as they soon find themselves dragged into the shadowy world of government secrecy and conspiracy.

Similarity – Blood and carnage galore. While the themes and motifs aren’t alike, the unadulterated blood, gore, and violence is. The main difference in the overall flavor would be that while Hellsing Ultimate is very dark interspersed with Hirano’s trademark quirky humor scenes, Elfen Lied has a lot more “cutesy” scenes and harem-esque motifs to fill in the gaps between carnage…

2. Devil May Cry

Devil May CrySynopsis – Devil May Cry follows the story of the demon hunter known as Dante. As a half demon, half human, he uses his trusty sword Rebellion and his two guns Ebony and Ivory to take on missions. Dante owns and runs “Devil May Cry,” a business that specializes in hunting and killing demon-related problems.

Based on the video game series “Devil May Cry.”

Similarity – In both of these anime series, there is violence, gore, action, drama, and involves a world of monstrosity.
The main male protagonist in both series is in fact very independent, skilled, and is able to handle situations at their own expenses. They kill monsters in a cruel way but at the same time wishes to protect someone close to them.
Both series has a similar setting and a dark atmosphere throughout each episode.

1. Drifters

Synopsis – At the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, Toyohisa Shimazu is the rearguard for his retreating troops, and is critically wounded when he suddenly finds himself in a modern, gleaming white hallway. Faced with only a stoic man named Murasaki and hundreds of doors on both sides, Toyohisa is pulled into the nearest door and into a world completely unlike his own.

The strange land is populated by all manner of fantastical creatures, as well as warriors from different eras of Toyohisa’s world who were thought to be dead. Quickly befriending the infamous warlord Nobunaga Oda and the ancient archer Yoichi Suketaka Nasu, Toyohisa learns of the political unrest tearing through the continent. Furthermore, they have been summoned as “Drifters” to fight against the “Ends,” people who are responsible for the creation of the Orte Empire and are trying to annihilate the Drifters. As the Ends grow more powerful, so does the Empire’s persecution of elves and other demihumans. It is up to Toyohisa and his group of unconventional heroes to battle in a brand-new world war to help the Empire’s subjects, while protecting the land to claim for themselves and challenging the Ends.

Similarity – Drifters is a must-watch for everyone who liked Hellsing. With similar storytelling, art style and fast-paced, bloody action they manage to deliver awaited amusement. They both even have same amount of peculiar ideas and same kind of pesky comic relief scenes.
