.hack//SIGN

In a massive online world, people act only as well as their conscience demands. When one player's punishment is to be trapped in this world, a disparate group of people seek the answers why. Their motives are varied; their methods even more so. What stands between when we tear down the walls of reality? Where does our soul end and we begin?

Imsorrykun Imsorrykun says...

same style of animation in my opinion, also the long thrown-in-the-middle plot style. both have great plot development with mild action and you may undoughtable find an uncanny simularity.

tolone tolone says...

Very similar fight signs and also(though not as much as noir) since the main character doesn't talk much the creators put alot of effort into the facial expressions.

MaRyusama MaRyusama says...

Avenger has a very similar atmosphere and character design when compared to .hack//SIGN. Even though the plots are different I still feel that if you liked .hack you'd like Avenger. Its also done by the same studio ... but as you watch the show its similarity to .hack screams at you ... so if your looking for something that has some of the same feel as .hack you want to watch this.

Ellor Ellor says...

I totally agree with other reviewers - look as you like, but the atmosphere is similiar. Fush Leila and Nei together and you'll get the main char of

.hack : depressed, powerful yet in need of saving, silent, with dark past..

well you get the picture.

Also, is you think that opening and ending songs of Avenger there great

wait till you hear .hack's soundtrack.

Kastrophee Kastrophee says...

Both shows where made by the same studio plus both feature very similar animation and music, not to mention feel as well. Though it should be noted that Avenger is shorter and thus events are resolved much quicker. The chances of liking one and not another is very unlikely, so give it a try.

Usagi06 Usagi06 says...

Both anime are more story and character driven then action driven. They tend to have slow moments, with little action and a lot of plot and/or character development. However it means that they both have detailed and good stories and when the action does show up it's good.

The reason why I recommend Noir to Avenger is just because of the music. The opening and the sound track is really a Noir track. And when I think of it Noir and Anvenger both have this mysterious style over them. I'm really sure you're gonna like Noir if you liked Avenger!

Modesty81 Modesty81 says...

My firts thought about this serier was that the music sounded just like Noir, and allso there is somewhat the same feeling in Noir as in Avenger. So if u like the music (me on the other hand loves it) in Avenger im sure u like Noir! :)

More BeeTrain goodness here for you: their classical charades, their outstanding colouring and Yuki Kajiura's awesome OSTs won't be the only thing required to label an anime as a masterpiece, but they surely hep a lot!

Yeah, superficially, these are two Bee Train anime with identical character design/animation and very similar soundtracks, both complete with annoying Ali Project OPs.

Underneath the obvious, these are two slow-burners jam-packed with pretentious dialogue and boring characters that at times feel like they're going somewhere but you'll be lucky if you still care about them when they get there. The plots are convoluted, at times utterly cryptic, the action scenes are very sterile and planned too closely. Though, for both the action scenes are are highlight (except Noir's get rather repetitive). In both anime the characters are on a voyage of self-discovery amid violence and corruption.

Seriously, if you liked either of these I think you'd "get" the other at least, if not really enjoy them. I didn't really "get" either. Good luck.

Androids and puppets... a mystery left untold... ah well nearly ;P Just like Avenger, Battle Angel Alita deals with the futuristic thought about creating dolls to serve the humans as substitutes for lost children and other things. The story is quite similar but in a older version and it got a the old toutch to the animation. Check it out if you want to get caught up in another really good anime.

sublime sublime says...

For fans of dark, bleak portrayals of the future, Avenger and Battle Angel Alita certainly share this much in common. Throw in some excellent fighting scenes as well as robots with emotional issues and again both series deliver.

I know what you're thinking... you assume I recommended this pair because they both have dolls, right? Wrong! The mood and feel of these two is remarkably similar (though there is little humor in Avenger). The music, as well, is a perfect dark background in both, with a setting that is a lush fantasy type world in certain situations. Check it out.
