Both 3 x 3 Eyes OVAs share the demons, blood, and dark story aspects that Blood Reign has. The main difference is the time and perhaps the location to some degree. Either wasy both should attract fans from the other series, personally I liked 3 x 3 Eyes much more though.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
In both Elfen Lied and 3x3 Eyes, an ordinary male protagonist is shoved into abnormal circumstances and thus tied into the life of an unusual girl with two personalities. There wouldn't be any story if love didn't sprout from this, nor the occasional humor, but the gore and violence definitely makes these not lighthearted. They both share a similar feel and are both excellent; you can not go wrong with either of these if you like this type of show. Though 3 x 3 Eyes doesn't have the ecchi qualities of Elfen Lied and has more horror elements.
Both leads have 2 very different personalities. One is a pretty clueless fun loving girl. The other kills without remorse. Both anime have a lot of bloodshed. 3x3 eyes doesn't have any of the ecchiness that Elfen Lied does. If you liked one check out the other.
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...
In both Hellsing and 3x3 Eyes the 2nd main character is killed and brought back to life by his/her new masters. From there he/she must figure out themselves and how to fight with this new power he/she has been given. Both have great storylines, and lots of action and blood.
The Four Lords of Havoc have one terrible goal – to awaken the god Anthrasax and recreate the world. To stop them, Yoko, a maiden of Metallicana, awakens the ancient wizard Dark Schneider from within a 14-year old boy by bestowing upon him her virgin kiss. The only problem now is that the most chaotic, lecherous wizard in history resides inside the body of an innocent child. Even worse, he’s determined that neither hydras nor minotaurs should stand between him and his dream to conquer everyone and take the women for himself… all of which is less than convenient when trying to save the world!
