Highlander: The Search for Vengeance

Highlander: The Search for Vengeance

Colin Macleod is dead; or at least, he was for a time. For Colin is an immortal who cannot die and holds a heavy burden: the love of his life, Moya, was crucified in the ancient times of Rome by the conquering Marcus Octavius, and for that he will not rest until he gets his vengeance. Throughout the centuries, Colin dies and is reborn with one wish alone: to kill Marcus where he stands for destroying his reason to live. Now, in a post-apocalyptic present where the world is flooded and monsters roam the streets, Colin has managed to track down Marcus yet again; and with the help of an unlikely prostitute, he might finally have the power to exact his revenge...

Two men driven by ambition roam the realm in disregard of all others, and care for almost nothing. Gatts and Colin Macleod are both exceptional swordsmen and vicious warriors. If you liked the way a true fighter turns sentimental in one of these series, you would enjoy the other.

Berserk and Noir share the theme of discovering who you are through gratuitous violence and the slaughtering of countless extras.

while berserk is much darker than escaflowne, both have huge stories with great and unexpected turns constantly thrown at you. both show you a bigger world, with every episode propelling you forward to thier abrupt world changing ends. they both have strange love triangles too.

Sword of the Stranger

Sword of the Stranger

Kotarou is a brash young orphan in war-torn Japan, on the run from mysterious pursuers with Tobimaru, his faithful canine companion. Clueless as to why anyone would want him, much less imperial warriors from mainland China, a chance encounter with a strange wandering swordsman could not be more unwelcome in Kotarou's skeptical eyes – especially when the stranger has a secret past that has caused him to seal his blade. Forced by circumstance to work together for survival, the unlikely duo forge a tenuous friendship that is threatened all too soon when Kotarou's pursuers thrust the two into a dizzying whorl of clashing ambitions between men both big and small. Will the stranger manage to overcome his past and save them both from peril with his blade?

Both animes feature swords, bows and fuedal combat. Pretty gorry to boot. Both the main characters try to find themselves along the way, although with different outcomes.
