10. Witch Hunter Robin

Witch Hunter RobinSynopsis – Witches are individuals with special powers like ESP, telekinesis, mind control, etc. Robin, a 15-year-old craft user, arrives from Italy to Japan to work for an organization named STN Japan Division (STN-J) as a replacement for one of STN-J’s witch hunters who was recently killed. Unlike other divisions of STN, STN-J tries to capture the witches alive in order to learn why and how they became witches in the first place.

Similarity – Though for no real reason, I find that these two shows would appeal to those who prefer to be more on the… serious side of things, Witch Hunter Robin is about has funny as Hellsing (Which isn’t saying much.) but it makes up for it in an intrigue of the storyline. Both series contains a main protagonist who is considered a “hunter” of sorts, who often gets into fights while questioning on who they are themselves.

9. Black Blood Brothers

Black Blood BrothersSynopsis – Ten years after the Holy War in Hong Kong, Mochizuki Jirou, aka the Silver Blade, and the lone hero who fought and defeated the Kowloon Children despite the loss of his lover returns to Japan with his young brother, Mochizuki Kotarou. The two quickly discover that the Kowloon Children who survived the Holy War are seeking to infiltrate the “Special Zone”, a thriving city protected by an invisible barrier that will not allow Kowloon Children entrance unless they’re invited. Red Bloods refers to the humans; Black Bloods are the vampires, and the Mochizuki Brothers are Old Blood, the last descendants of an elite clan of vampires. When Kotarou is abducted by one of the Kowloon Children, Jirou has no choice but to fight once more.

Similarity – Both series primarily feature vampires and Jirou’s design is somewhat of a ripoff of Alucard’s design in Hellsing. The difference between the two is that Black Blood Brothers focuses much more on the nature of vampires, but I found that the plot within Hellsing and the general action scenes of the series to be much more intriguing then that of Black Blood Brothers.

8. Blood+

Blood+Synopsis – Throughout the passage of time and the shifts in backgrounds, a particular war continues to leave its mark on history, extending its influence into the modern world. There are two major groups involved in the ensuing war. The first group consists of monsters known as Chiropterans who can change their appearances into that of human beings. They are actually immortals who feed on the blood of the living. The second group is an organization known as the “Red Shield”, formed to track down these monsters and exterminate them. Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is, she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year. However, her happy life will be destroyed by an event that will lead her to her destined fate.

Similarity – Ken and Ayumu organically switch between the boke role and the tsukkomi role, depending on the situation or who they are interacting with. Similar comedy, characters, and harem. Both take place at school, but Kore Wa Zombie has more scenes out there and also supernatural things.

7. Gungrave

GungraveSynopsis – Brandon Heat, a silent and passive man, is living a laid back life with his friends. He’s got his eyes on Maria, but her uncle forbids their relationship. After the brutal murder of his friends and Maria’s father, Brandon is on the run together with the only friend he has left—Harry McDowell. When he finds out custody over Maria has been taken by Millennium, the largest mafia syndicate in town, he and Harry decide to join the syndicate. He goes through many hardships after joining the syndicate but he is willing to risk everything as long as he can be close to Maria.

Similarity – Both are about guns and fighting badass monsters. Gungrave got better and deep story whereas Hellsing is way more kickass than Gungrave in action… Plus the animation style of these two animes look really similar

6. Vampire Knight

Vampire Knight

Synopsis – Cross Academy is an elite boarding school with two separate, isolated classes: the Day Class and the Night Class. On the surface, Yuuki Cross and Zero Kiryuu are prefects of the academy, and attempt to keep order between the students as classes rotate in the evenings. As the Night Class is full of utterly gorgeous elites, this can sometimes prove to be a bit difficult. It is completely necessary, however, as those “elites” are actually vampires. Yuuki and Zero act as guardians, protecting the secrets of the Night Class and the safety of their ignorant morning counterparts.

Similarity – Both anime are about vampires. Some vampires wish to do harm and have some sort of evil plan but the main character tries to stop them. In Vampire Guilty it takes a while for the action to start also because this anime is about more than just the action and bloodshed. It also involves romance and therefor Vampire Knight is more a shoujo while Hellsing is more a shounen.

5. Trigun

TrigunSynopsis – Vash the Stampede is a gunman on the run with a 60 billion double dollar bounty on his head which has made it difficult for him to go anywhere without being chased and shot at. Every town he ever visits ends up being destroyed because of his pursuers, but miraculously no one ever gets killed. Meryl and Milly are two insurance agents that have been sent to find Vash the Stampede and keep him under surveillance so no more damage is caused. Meryl, who leads the pair, refuses to believe that the man they have met can possibly be the legendary gunman. This spikey haired, gangly, young man is extremely friendly, a pacifist, hates blood and suicide, absolutely loves donuts, and is a dork and a crybaby (far from a notorious outlaw). But there is more to Vash and his past than meets the eye.

Similarity – Both main characters are dressed in long red coats, have an awesome pistol-like gun and wear yellow like sunglasses. The art is pretty similar. They are definitive gunslinger animes. Hellsing is more gratuitously visceral and fun. Trigun has more drama and THE BEST villain of all time, my homeboy Legato.

4. Blue Exorcist (Ao no Exorcist)

Ao no ExorcistSynopsis – 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 – In both series the main characters hunt people similar to them. Alucard it’s a vampire from an anti-vampire organization(Hellsing) and in Ao no Exorcist we’ve the son of Satan(Okumura, Rin) becoming an exorcist. Both shows have some great action scene and drama.

3. Trinity Blood

Trinity BloodSynopsis – The background is in the distant future after the destruction brought about by Armageddon. The war between the vampires and the humans continue to persist. In order to protect the humans from the vampires, the Vatican has to rely on other allies to counter the situation. The protagonist, Abel Nightroad, is a traveling priest from the Vatican and a crusnik, a vampire that drinks the blood of vampires. 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.

Similarity – Both anime’s are about an organization that gets rid of vampires. The main character works for this organization and is a vampire himself, so to speak. Even though these main characters look very alike they are also very different. Their personality is not the same at all. Abel (Trinity Blood) is a kindhearted priest while Alucard (Hellsing) is more like this fierce vampire hunter, seeking a good fight. Alucard fights with ferocity and often extreme cruelty, rarely intending to kill until his target has been disabled and humiliated. But don’t be fooled once Abel might be a kindhearted priest but once he gets into battle he becomes very serious as hell

2. Claymore

ClaymoreSynopsis – In a world rife with deadly creatures called “youma”, a young silver eyed woman, Clare, works on behalf of an organization that trains female youma halfbreeds into warriors with the ability to destroy these creatures. Considered a rogue for picking up a stray child & almost losing herself to her youma side by “Awakening”, she is constantly assigned rather dangerous missions…

Similarity – Both have a lot of action and gory fights in them and are fun to watch. The main character in both anime is extremely strong and has a badass reputation among enemies. Must watch!

1. 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.

 

Similarity – In both series, the protagonist is a powerful person of demonic origin, dressed in red, who is nearly invincible, has superhuman abilities and two big handguns of different colors. He is employed by humans to fights other demons in exceptionally gory and stylish way on a daily basis. The animation style is also somewhat similar.
