Blue Seed

Blue Seed

In the present, Japan is under assault by murderous creatures known as Aragami whose origin and purpose remain unknown. The fate of Japan and the world itself lies with one young woman named Momiji who bears the burden of the Kushinada -- the one who must be sacrificed to silence the Aragami forever. With the help of Mamoru Kusanagi (a human and Aragami hybrid), and an agency filled with firepower-toting bodyguards, Momiji must use her Aragami-sensing powers to help save mankind; but will she ultimately have to lose her own life to save the lives of so many others?

I had no idea the same creator had made 3y3 Eyes and Blue Seed till way into the series, so keep in mind I didn't make this recommendation for that reason. They both have an alarmingly similar feel to them, with plenty of horror and monsters to go around. I admittedly enjoyed 3x3 much, much more... but if you liked one, you'd appreciate the feel of the other.

I believe the person who wrote the manga for Sazan Eyes and Blue Seed is the same.  Both anime involve a young protagonist who encounters a mythical element/power/figure;  They are then entrusted to use their newly found power to fight the forces of evil

Capricorn

Capricorn
  • OVA (1 ep x 50 min)
  • 1991

Taku is an ordinary eighth grader who has suddenly found himself in the land of Slaffleaze, a world much different than his own. Here, intelligent animals live like humans, and are ruled by Zalbo, an evil tyrant set on dominating both Slaffleaze and its twin planet Capricorn, the Earth. With the help of Mona, a human/dragon hybrid who is the last of her kind, and a handful of companions, Taku must fight to protect the Earth from Zalbo's incoming invasion fleet before it's too late!

Both 3x3 eyes and capricorn have a really similar feel. The animation is also fairly similar, although 3x3 eyes is a little more high calibur. You would probably enjoy 3x3 Eyes more, since the story is more compelling, but Capricorn is fun and enjoyable too, mostly for the same reasons.
sothis
While 3x3 Eyes definitely is a LOT more focused on horror and violence, I really felt the same kind of thing from both of these. Definitely an adventuring fantasy-like feel, as well as harrowing situations with a protagonist that is a bit bumbling. This recommendation might be a stretch, but I think you might like it.

Claymore

Claymore

In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

Claymore, like 3x3 Eyes, is another anime that has a lot of monsters and gore. Furthermore, the main characters are very similar as well in that both have multiple personalities and a loyal friend who tries to protect them.

hamletsmage

Both of these anime center around a woman with strong powers that she only uses if she's in trouble. By her side is a young male chracter who tries to protect her because she saved his life. With some epic monster battles and a splash of blood, these animes are quite similar.

GANTZ

GANTZ

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

Gantz and 3x3 Eyes have a similar Story. In both the lead dies by accident but gets revived. So they now are in debt by their rescuer and have to fight their battles. They have to face situations where every normal person would freak out. Also the mood is dark and depressing. A big difference is the cause for which has to be fought. While in gantz it is solely to survive and actually directed "against" the rescuer, in 3x3 eyes it is to reach their goal, the humanification of Pai and thus "for" Pai.
freakzilla

Both Gantz and 3x3 Eyes have the characters fighting supernatural monsters. During those fights it's not uncommon to see gore being set as the main theme - and almost the only theme.

Hellsing

Hellsing

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...

Though 3x3 Eyes bases more on gore than horror, Hellsing still holds some connections with it. The supernatural is a theme in both of the series. From Hellsing, expect less gore, more action.
chii

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.
