Dante works as a demon hunter for the office of Devil May Cry, and as he is always in debt he doesn't have the luxury to turn down jobs as long as they pay well. His latest assignment is to be a bodyguard for the young Patty Lowe while she receives her inheritance. During the mission he was able to defeat the demons that got in his way and deliver Patty safely, but upon completion of the mission Dante discovers that Patty will be staying with him – indefinitely! Now, Dante must not only hunt demons and coexist peacefully with other hunters, but also handle the responsibility of taking care of a little girl!
Both anime were rather dark and had good action. Personally, I thought Berserk took things to the point of sickening, beyond just gore (with some nudity and even a rape, though I'm sure there are much more graphic depictions of these out there).
That flashing warning sign aside, both anime have demon fights to the point of epic, so if you like one, you may well like the other.
Manji, a recently-turned immortal swordsman, has sworn to kill a thousand villains to counterbalance the merciless and indiscriminate slaughter that ended with the death of his sister.

Weary from the Crusades, Dante Alighieri returns home to find his farm raided and his family slaughtered. If this atrocity weren’t enough, he then watches in horror as Lucifer himself rises to claim the soul of his beloved Beatrice for his own. On the verge of despair. Dante takes his sword to the gates of Hell itself in a mad quest to reclaim her against all odds. But even with the help of his guide, the dead poet Virgil, the knight must still contend with an army of demons both personal and literal if he is to rescue his fiancée.
Ok, where to start.. lets see.. they both have ridiculous muscled up GAR ASS main characters, who fight demons with big-ass bladed weapons, both of the main males fight ALL the enemies.. both are set in a (pre)-medieval timeline/background both have huge gobs of fantasy in them...amongst various other things...
so yeah if you liked one you'll probably want to give the other a watch..
The story begins with Xin and Hyou, two boys without families in the Warring States Period when China has been embroiled in war for five centuries. Despite living like slaves, the boys strive to realize their dream of becoming warlords.
Only 6 episodes of Kingdom are out as of writing this. But both animes are feudal. Both animes have two main male protoganists that have similar contrasting characters. Gutz (Berserk) is similar in personality to Xin (Kingdom), being strong, aggresive to the point of volatile, and sees the world in slighly simple terms. This personality type serves as a counter point Piao/Zheng (Kingdom) and Griffith (Berserk), being the more calm, always thinking type. Both animes also involve the teaming up of these two contrasting male-leads in an effort to obtain a kingdom. However these animes are not in the same 'class'. Kingdom thus far does not share Berserks depth or more adult method of story telling.
The story of the anime begins when the King's adviser launches a witch hunt, which endangers the Makai Knights and Makai Priests, who are supposed to protect people. A Makai Priest who has been condemned to die at the stake gives birth to a child, Leon Lewis. The child is rescued by his father, a Makai Knight, but never meets his mother. When he grows up he inherits the Gold Armor as a descendant of the Gold Knights. Meanwhile the king's adviser has taken over the country as the king has become ill, and Prince Alfonso has been driven out with his mother. He comes seeking the legendary Gold Knight in hopes of retaking his kingdom.
Both series are dark fantasy titles, with a big focus on character interaction and good old grimdarkness. Both have lots of violence, sexual themes, interesting characters (especially Berserk), and that gritty low-fantasy feel. While obviously not for everyone, and both do have some rather stupid stuff I personally could have done without, if you liked one of these, you might give the other a go.
