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.

Sword swinging action and GAR! What else do you need? The protagonist is on a journey of destiny filled with blood lust.  A great time killer with fairly good dialog.

Dante's Inferno

Dante's Inferno

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..

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.
