In the revolutionary Meiji period, Japan is undergoing enormous political change. It is a time when vagabonds and terrorists will use any method to prevent the modernization of their country, even if it means trampling on the innocent in the process. In such a time, Himura Kenshin, a wandering samurai, has dedicated his life to protecting the weak and desperate peasants from those who would oppress them. However, Kenshin has a dark past which threatens to destroy the values he is fighting for. When he meets his new friends Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Yahiko, and tries to build a peaceful life with them, events conspire against him. Can Kenshin overcome the demons within and without, and finally ensure the peaceful future that Japan deserves?

Kenshin is perhaps Japan's version of European Medieval times. In an age of great conflict, Kenshin uses his sword to defend the weak. His reputation as a blood-thirsty assassin precedes him everywhere he goes, as many formidable villains seek to test their skills on him. Sword fighting plays a huge roll in this anime, which is loaded with action, and deep plots. Kenshin is one of my most highly recommended anime series for anyone.

If you liked the main character in either of these series, you're likely to like the other. They're both of the most anti-heroic sort among anti-heroes and there are not many others like them. Gokudo and Dark Schneider pretty much do whatever they feel like which can be a big relief from all the clichéed hero types.

Amon Saga

Amon Saga

When Amon was a young boy, his mother was viciously murdered by the masked emperor of the moving city Valhiss. Years later, a stronger Amon has returned to exact revenge and successfully manages to infiltrate the city above ground, only to come face to face with the beautiful kidnapped princess Lichia.

Both Bastard!! and Amon Saga have that same "sword & sorcery" feeing, and feature fantasy worlds in which monsters roam free and great tyrannical rulers try and conquer all the good and just nations of the world.

Of course, while in Amon Saga our hero is truly a hero who must face his trials in the usual way, in Bastard our hero simply beats the piss out of everything -- being so overpowering, he can just do whatever he pleases. Both of them, however, are out for revenge and have an archenemy that they want revenge on (who, in both cases, happens to be a tyrannical ruler out to conquer/destroy the entire world).

Bastard!! and Samurai Deeper Kyo center around a similar scenario: a extremely powerful and self serving warrior is trapped in the body of someone much less powerful. What follows is the journey to try to free themselves from their weaker host, resulting in numerous battles against more traditional evil forces. If you enjoyed the battles in one of these series, you should be right at home with the other.
