10. Berserk: Ougon Jidai-hen I – Haou no Tamago

Synopsis – In the Kingdom of Midland, a mercenary named Guts wanders the land, preferring a life of conflict over a life of peace. Despite the odds never being in his favor, he is an unstoppable force that overcomes every opponent, wielding a massive sword larger than himself.

One day, Griffith, the mysterious leader of the mercenary group Band of the Hawk, witnesses the warrior’s battle prowess and invites the wandering swordsman to join his squadron. Rejecting the offer, Guts challenges Griffith to a duel—and, much to the former’s surprise is subsequently defeated and forced to join.

Now, Guts must fight alongside Griffith and his crew to help Midland defeat the Empire of Chuder. However, Griffith seems to harbor ulterior motives, desiring something much larger than just settling the war…

Similarity –Both are stories set in a fantasy world relating to demons and mercenaries, with gorgeous animation and character designs (whose male characters’ designs are also fairly feminine) by Onda Naoyuki.

9. Chain Chronicle: Haecceitas no Hikar

Even though there were small wars among areas, the kings had roundtable meetings to maintain peace and balance. It was until a dark group of dark monsters appeared…

War was driven for the past years ago…

8. Lupin III

Synopsis- Jigen tells the story of the gang’s first meeting. Jigen, still a member of the Mafia, is hired to protect an ancient artifact – one that Lupin and Fujiko are both trying to steal. Meanwhile, Inspector Zenigata, then of the Japanese police force, has come to the U.S. on Fujiko’s trail, and Ishikawa Goemon is searching for the lost treasure of his clan.

Similarity – the Main hero is a bit crazy, but he’s really funny and likes girls. He has a companion that doesn’t like him as well.
Lots of action, fights, funny scenes, great animation, and soundtracks.

7. Garo: Honoo no Kokuin

Synopsis – In Garo: Honoo no Kokuin, Makai Knights and Alchemists, those who are able to keep supernatural enemies at bay, are feared and hated in the kingdom of Valiante. Encouraging this fear is the king’s trusted advisor, Mendoza, who convinces him to launch an all-out purge. Those of Makai blood are hunted and imprisoned or burned at the stake for so-called witchcraft. However, a dark omen is cast over Valiante when the execution of the last “witch” ends in the birth of her child who is saved from the flames by his father, a Makai Knight.

German spirits the baby Leon away from Valiante and raises him as a Makai Knight of the Garo armor. Now, they have been recalled to Valiante by the ever-increasing swarm of Horrors preying on unsuspecting civilians. With no Makai Knights left to defend them, the people are desperate. In answer to this desperation, Valiante’s Prince Alfonso sets out for help. How will these two sides clash? Will Leon and German be able to save their homeland?

Similarity – they are both very similar. Reasons for them being similar may come from the fact that they are both being animated by MAPPA, they also both take place in a similar time period. A time period in which the most conventional weapons are crossbows and swords, they both also feature a bit of a fictional side to them as they more relate to mythology over reality. Garo more revolves around humans and human transformations with a few demons on the side, whereas Bahamut.

6. Nanatsu no Taizai

Nanatsu no Taizai (The Seven Deadly Sins)
Synopsis – In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.

Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights but to also seek justice in an unjust world.

Similarity – Both series are sitting in a similar middle-aged world where there are Knights, Demons, and Angels.
In both is used magic and both have their kingdoms.
Both main characters are perverted at some point.
Both have a rivalry between the main character and his best friend, they don’t like each other but end up helping each other.

5. Hitsugi no Chaika

Synopsis –For 500 years, the Taboo Emperor, Arthur Gaz, ruled the Gaz Empire with an iron fist and conducted inhumane experiments on his own people. But his reign came to an end five years ago, when mighty warriors—later known as the Eight Heroes—defeated him in a battle for the capital. His death ended the 300-yearlong war between the Gaz Empire and the alliance of six nations.

In the present day, Tooru Acura is a former saboteur from the war who has difficulty settling into the peaceful world, as he cannot find a job where he can put his fighting skills to use. An opportunity appears before him, however, when he meets a white-haired Wizard named Chaika Trabant. With a coffin on her back, she is searching for the scattered remains of her father in order to give him a proper burial, and she hires Tooru and his adoptive sister Akari to help her. However, the six nations alliance, which has now formed the Council of Six Nations, dispatches Albéric Gillette and his men from the Kleeman Agency to pursue and apprehend the late Emperor Gaz’s daughter—Chaika.

With the shocking revelation of Chaika’s identity, the Acura siblings must choose between helping her gather the remains of the tyrannical emperor and upholding the peace the continent strives to maintain.

Similarity – They both have the same plot where a mysterious girl is in search for something and has acquired a couple of associates along the way which helped her in fulfilling her quest, though the quest as to what the 2 mysterious girls differ, it still presents the same amount of challenges that the mysterious girl have to face.

4. Rokka no Yuusha

Rokka no Yuusha (Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers)
Synopsis – An ancient legend states that with the revival of the Demon God, six heroes—the Braves of the Six Flowers—will be chosen by the Goddess of Fate, granting them the power to rise up against the fiends attempting to turn the world into a living hell. Adlet Mayer, self-proclaimed “Strongest Man in the World,” has arrived at the continent of Piena in hopes of becoming a Brave. Although it doesn’t go as smoothly as he had planned, Adlet is ultimately chosen as one of the six heroes shortly after being greeted by Nashetania Loei Piena Augustra, crown princess, and fellow Brave.

Rokka no Yuusha follows the two as they embark upon their destined journey to fight the Demon God, intending to meet up with their fellow heroes at a small temple outside of the Land of the Howling Demons, the fiends’ domain. However, when they finally unite, seven heroes are present, and soon the others begin to suspect Adlet to be a fraud. Now on the run, Adlet must utilize his unique skill set and wit in a fight for his life to identifying which member of the group is the true impostor before it’s too late!

Similarity – Both animes have very similar main characters
Both stories are set in a similar fantasy world
Both animes are not directed to the younger audience
Gives a very similar “Adventure” “Travel” feeling with (more or less) realistic/tricky fights. Sorry its hard to describe that point 🙂 but I just had to think of Favaro after seeing that main character.

3. Samurai Champloo

Samurai Champloo
Synopsis – Fuu Kasumi is a young and clumsy waitress who spends her days peacefully working in a small teahouse. That is until she accidentally spills a drink all over one of her customers! With a group of samurai now incessantly harassing her, Fuu desperately calls upon another samurai in the shop, Mugen, who quickly defeats them with his wild fighting technique, utilizing movements reminiscent to that of breakdancing. Unfortunately, Mugen decides to pick a fight with the unwilling ronin Jin, who wields a more precise and traditional style of sword fighting, and the latter proves to be a formidable opponent. The only problem is, they end up destroying the entire shop as well as accidentally killing the local magistrate’s son.

For their crime, the two samurai are captured and set to be executed. However, they are rescued by Fuu, who hires the duo as her bodyguards. Though she no longer has a place to return to, the former waitress wishes to find a certain samurai who smells of sunflowers and enlists the help of the now-exonerated pair to do so. Despite initially disapproving of this idea, the two eventually agree to assist the girl in her quest; thus, the trio embark upon an adventure to find this mysterious warrior—that is, if Fuu can keep Mugen and Jin from killing each other.

Set in an alternate Edo Period of Japan, Samurai Champloo follows the journey of these three eccentric individuals in an epic quest full of action, comedy, and dynamic sword fighting, all set to the beat of a unique hip-hop infused soundtrack.

Similarity – The two shows have a very similar dynamic between the three main characters. A goofy, loveable idiot with exceptional combat skills. A far more serious and down-to-earth character with a grudge against the idiot, whose seriousness is often played up for laughs. And a mysterious girl trying to find a member of her family.

2. Romeo x Juliet

Synopsis – On the floating continent of Neo Verona, the Montague family slaughters the entire Capulet family and seizes control of the kingdom. The true heir to the throne, Juliet Fiammata Asto Capulet, manages to escape the onslaught and is hidden away by loyalists for 14 years with hope that she may one day overthrow the cruel Montague regime.

Despite having forgotten the murder of her entire family, Juliet now secretly protects the oppressed citizens of Neo Verona as a vigilante called the Red Whirlwind. During one of her escapades she meets Romeo Candorebanto Montague, the kind and selfless son of the tyrannical Prince Laertes Montague, and without knowledge of each other’s background, they both fall in love at first sight.

Unfortunately, however, their destiny is a cursed one: not only does each of the two families wish to obliterate the other, but an ancient secret hidden beneath Neo Verona also threatens their undying love for each other. Will they be able to defy the stars, or is this truly a love that can never be?

Similarity – If you enjoy fantasy romance with action than these anime will entertain you: Both are stories where a faction/race plans to overthrow a cruel regime where the ruler/king is a tyrant. You have a forbidden love as a central theme and mythology of divine beings and also, in both the fate of the world is in danger, as the world faces an imminent destruction.

1. Akame ga Kill!

Akame ga KillSynopsis – Tatsumi is a self-acknowledged country bumpkin who is nonetheless a well-trained fighter. He and two companions leave their remote village to head to the Imperial City to find a way to relieve their friends and family from ruinous taxation imposed by the authorities. Yet the Imperial City is filled with unimaginable amounts of corruption and evil from supernatural sources. Tatsumi is immediately swindled after reaching the City and nearly loses everything soon after but finds himself allied with an unlikely group of assassins.

Similarity – Both series are beautifully animated and set in a medieval fantasy world. The stories both revolve around corrupt rulers and the rebels who are working against them. The protagonists are both cheerful and naive individuals who are oblivious to the corruption until they see it firsthand. There is plenty of action, with comedic relief and romance as well.

In Akame ga Kill, there is a clear difference between the good and evil, while Shigeki no Bahamut tells the story of a conflict between three races in which there are no true ‘bad’ guys.
