GANTZ

GANTZ

Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.

The world we live in is a crazy one, indeed. But what happens if you step outside of that crazy world, what is waiting on the other side? Whether it is gunfire for fun, or an insane battle to save the human race of alien invasion, it is up to you. No matter you're choice, you will not be disappointed.

As Black Lagoon is filled with criminals spending their time fighting each other or stealing someone's money or even life, GANTZ is also full of dynamic battles with aliens for staying alive.

Both of these shows deal with stories where it's hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. No one is really evil in these shows, but noone is a saint either.

And they both have amazing action scenes!

Air Gear

Air Gear

What if roller skates had high power engines that enabled the skaters to do stunning new tricks that defy gravity? What if you saw a beautiful girl effortlessly glide through the air with them? To Ikki, this is reason enough to secretly borrow a pair of Air Treck skates, and step into an underground world filled with gang fights and strange customs. Enamored with high-flying stunts and the flirtatious Simca, Ikki forms an Air Treck gang of his own and starts a life of fighting rival gangs and flying over the rooftops, chasing the girl always one kick ahead of him.

Action scenes, though not dealing with similar content are liberally applied to both series'. Although Black Lagoon is not as flattering to the female figure as Air Gear is, there is a reasonable degree of eye candy in both. Not to mention the romantic element that both series share.

Crest of the Stars

Crest of the Stars

In the distant future, mankind has mastered space and spread empires across the galaxy. While many choose to colonize distant planets, others choose to remain amidst the stars, ultimately giving rise to a new brand of humanity known as the Abh. Both genetically and culturally different from their Earth-dwelling peers, the Abh soon find themselves engaged in a bloody war that rages across hundreds of planets and set out to restore peace by means of conquest. Enter Jinto, a nobleman and ambassador of the recently acquired Hyde system whose duty is to represent his peoples' interests and rule on the Abh's behalf. In order to be officially coronated to this position, a cold-but-beautiful Abh princess named Lafiel arrives at Hyde to escort him back to the empire's capital. When they are suddenly attacked by an anti-Abh liberation front, however, the festivities are cut short, and the two must flee for their lives against all odds.

Both anines focus on the relation between a female protaginst with fighting/military skills and a timid male protagonist.

If you liked Black Lagoon solely because of the action and humor, Crest of the stars is not necessarily for you, but if you enjoyed the relationship between Rock and Levy, you will definitely like Crest of The Stars.

If you liked Crest of the Stars, you will also like Black Lagoon. It also has this romance and action, but to top it off, Black Lagoon also has very funny moments!

Basilisk

Basilisk

Oboro, a naive, love-struck girl, is pledged to Gennosuke, an idealist. Both are successors to opposing ninja clans with a long history of hatred kept barely in check by a covenant of peace.

Even worse, Oboro and Gennosuke themselves are forced to lead their clans in battle. Can the star-crossed lovers resist the brutal circumstances and remain true to their love as the death toll rises?
