Both Black Lagoon and Read or Die have good action elements that are supported by a good plotline, and neither takes the idea of realism too far. Those who enjoy a fast moving anime with good action will enjoy both of these.

Kite

Black Lagoon is touted as action incarnate, an anime interpretation of the heroic bloodshed genre. As a fan of John Woo's Hard Boiled, I must say I was sorely disappointed. The action scenes are nothing special and the characters are overcompensating, spouting expletives and Engrish in an effort to seem cool.

Yasuomi Umetsu's Kite is brutal. The action is over-the-top. The characters are morally reprehensible and corrupt, and the world they inhabit is uncompromising and extreme. But it works. If you liked Black Lagoon, give Kite a chance.

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.

I'm not sure why I liked Bleach and Black Lagoon, but I did; call it instinct. The plots move along at a pretty good pace. Both male characters are torn from their everyday lives and are thrown into EXTRAORDINARY circumstances.

Both shows have several groups plotting against each other. The twists and turns in the crime world that these shows feature are extremely interesting and any fan of one would be a fan of the other.

Another detective story, but this time more lively and creative. I hope that you will enjoy more this one because it has suspence build into it, as Black lagon too strait forward and therefore less attractive.
