PouncingShadows

Both titles feature strong competent male leads, who are both powerful sorcerer's. Also they share many of the same elements, including  neither antagonist going through a learning curve to use/control thier abilities. They are essentialy masters of thier art (bad-ass),  from the begining of the series.

The mystery of the jewel's powers, and the identities of those fiends who quest for it... these are questions whose answers will only be found through blood and battle.

The pure rawness of these animes compelled me to write this. Ninja Scroll and Bastard portray these two protagonasts that have the same dubbed voice actor. The animation has an old school flavor to it. The monsters in both anime have the same qualities. Based off of some element ment to thwart our heros. Our leading ladies are constantly waiting for our heros to swoop in and make a stunning victory.

It's been quite some time since I've seen anything like these anime. I know for a fact if you liked Ninja Scroll you would absolutely love Bastard!!

And not let us not forget the lewdness that comes along with it!

Both series embody their genre stereotypes so perfectly and enthusiastically that they practically make fun of themselves. Great to watch with your friends and laugh.

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.

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.
