Synopsis:

Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

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.

Blade of the Phantom Master borrows elements from classics such as Berserk and Fist of the North Star to fan-favorites like Saiyuki and Fullmetal Alchemist and even a little Cowboy Bebop, while being just original enough to not only remind us of our favorites, but even celebrate them.

While boasting a small and somewhat formulaic supporting cast, the film spends little time on developing them. Instead, the circumstances surrounding their introduction (or in some cases, their exit) to the story serves to give us a greater understanding of why we should care about them.

Particularly in pseudo-heroine Sando's case, her tragic back-story and unique character design is more than enough to make her interesting, even given her somewhat limited dialogue and involvement in the latter half of the film.

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Huge, bad ass sword - this is what these two are about. Fighting is main issue, along with hardships of friendship and politics. Moreover, both main characters share similar emotional problems.

Berserk and Blood+ are both incredible fighting anime that follow heroes of incredible power. They both have tons and tons of blood and they're just so right for each other in that sort of way. Both of them also have pretty sinister plots, so there really are a lot of similarities between the two.

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..
